I've started following a gluten-free, relatively low-carb diet for the past month. Without gluten, I've noticed that my bloating is less pronounced (yay!). However, it still happens. In addition, I experience constipation for a week prior to my period, and then...BAM! Diarrhea! I try to treat the bloating with gentle diuretic teas (Natural Medicinals 'Weight-Less' is great). They make me more comfortable, but they don't prevent the bloating / constipation cycle.
Does anybody have any suggestions about what's causing this bloating, and how I might go about further reducing it? I think that endo is sometimes accompanied by this kind of cyclical bloating, but I might be wrong and I'm keen for ideas on how to fix it. Thank you!
