steep it for less time, see if that makes a difference. no more than 3 mins.

    I'll try that tonight. But when I was doing it for less I wasn't having a BM in the morning. I have had three today though.

    just play with the steep time -- obviously however long youre doing it for is too much. 3 mins may be too little but give it a shot. if it doesnt work, up it tomorrow night. let us know what the results are if you are able to sleep better from adjusting the tea down.

      This thread is really making laugh, I'm debating on whether or not I want to do this. Maura, I'll just wait till you're done and hear how you did.

        so.
        steeped for 7 min last night and had normal size/shape/etc. bm today around 5pm. i don't feel like i'm colon cleansing - i feel like i'm tracking regular bms, every 3 days or so.

        i have noticed, however, that the longer i steep the tea, the fast i fall asleep, lol...

          OK so I am officially on board!
          I don't think that the mix is all that bad, and the pills leave an after taste hours later if you haven't eaten anything and are just drinking your water.
          Day1- had major bloating! Was gassy and so much that I couldn't fart /poop just in pain. Finally had the runs late at night after the tea. Yuck poop
          Day2- Yuck poop x3. Nothing solid very runny poops - Yuck! and exra stinky I must say. At least I am going though -better than nothing!
          My FI is calling it "poop juice"

          Funny though- I farted in my car on the way home from work the othr night and I almost passed out- thank god no one was in the car with me. It was horrible- definitly Silent But deadly!

          Anyone try with Milk? I did today and it was not that bad.

            im allergic to milk so i cant do it with milk. ive been thinking about mixing it with soy milk and blending it with strawberries though. i wonder if it would get chunky too fast though.

              i can't have milk either, and don't love soy milk enough to bother. i'm sticking with apple juice and apple sauce.
              went to a party at my parents' last night and ate and drank everything in sight. i didn't have tea last night, nor did i take pills/ fiber this morning and just had an enormous bm. i'm hoping that after a day of not taking it, and then going back to the full dose, i'll shock my body into pooping more regularly.

                I found that I like the tea also - I am sort of an insomniac and this helps me get my but to bed rather than staying on the computer all night!

                Mixing it with fruits would be yummy!
                I am loving pooping everyday, except they are still runny at day 3. I wish they would be "normal"
