swiss kriss makes some laxative flakes from senna, etc. works wonders. take at night before bed.
you may also want to take a gander up on drnatura.com - fiber & tea guaranteed to make anyone go - made quite a few unregular folks i know, quite regular now.
also try taking several caps of magnesium - will liquify anything just sitting around - recommend one doesn’t wander too far from a toilet.
good luck - being backed up is sure one awful thing to be…
OK I will try that as well I think i am going to have one more tblsp of fiber with water. Which means i will have had 5 teaspoons instead of 3. I just got off the phone making an appointment for a colonic as well. I hope and pray that it will hel. it’s expensive like all hell but Im willing to try it, only because i have a big fear of enemas NO WAY JOSE AM I SHOVING NOTHING LIKE THAT UP MY BUTT!! lol
Btw, will any of this stuff have an effect on the HOT-ROX or the shakes that i am drinking on the v-diet?[/quote]
colonics tend to reach only the lower part of the colon - may not be where your problem is - i use the dr. natura fiber - i mix in with my shakes. none could be regarded as stimulants. i’ve used HOT-ROX before and never had a problem with my ‘make sure i go’ routine. vitacost.com has the swiss kriss tablets quite cheap.
i take 4 before bed time - after i’ve had my cup of senna tea - i use smooth move by traditional medicine (i think that’s the name of the company) haven’t had a problem in the last 4 years. amen & hallelujah!!!
thru the day, i drink lots of water and make sure i take in enuf fiber as well.
btw - in a pinch, the magnesium overload does work. could create quite a symphony though i must warn you.
good luck to you lady - i remember those old feelings…yuck!
