      I dont have any personal experience with this kind of thing but recently Ive felt myself having less regular bowel movements. So I bought a book called 'Dr Jensens Guide To Better Bowel Care" by Dr Bernard Jensen.

      Amazing book!

      He's method involves using colonic cleansing like Quelson recommended above. His hypothesis for it and real life examples he gives are quite amazing. I think this is a book that everyone should/could read because everyone could benefit greatly by introducing bowel cleansing into their life i feel.

        6 months of 3000mg of Magnesuim Nitrate powder
        6 months of Ox Bile

        After that I dont worry about constipation... I had previously been constipated for 25 years

        Additionally I never ever take a fiber supplement; the book explains why. Fiber is the devil ( unless it comes in the food you eat)
        MCT is critical for bowel regulation
        Hey did administer the colonic yourself or did you go to a colonic cleansing therapist?

        The book you mentioned looks great...Ill have to check it out!

        Thanks!

          TMI. At that point in my journey there were certain things i could not accomplish on my own.... I paid a certified Colonic whatever they call themselves

                Colonics can interfere with the bacterial health of the colon; plus, it is just contrary to the purpose of the lower GI tract.

                  Miralax is NOT like traditional laxatives, it given 3-4 months of CONSISTENT use it can actually retrain the body to retain more water in the stool. a three month course of Miralax is now standard-of-care for chronic constipation. The biggest problem with it is getting people to KEEP TAKING IT (or giving it to their kids) long enough to make the change happen because people mistakenly assume they will become dependent on it like other laxatives.

                  however, I agree, this is a talk-to-the-doctor situation. Eating Disorders Recovery - Laxative Abuse - Eating Disorders Facts

                    It seems like majority of colon cleanse programs are vegetarian based... lots of fruit ... and also contain long periods of fasting. I found a book by a lady who aligns bowel cleansing and eating very primally as well. The book is called:

                    Ten Days to Optimal Health: A Guide to Nutritional Therapy and Colon Cleansing
                    By Kristina Amelong

                    You might wanna check it out!

                      YES. at the same time you must start somewhere. I did those 10 in 5 weeks. Never had another one.

                      think about a infested house. you can clean it all you want but at some point you must use RAID

                        yeah mirolax doesn't make me go anymore or faster, just makes it much easier to expel. I did not know that it can retrain your body to hold water.

                          There was a doctor is a newspaper column talking about constipation. He gave one good receipe. He said they use it in nursing homes for older
                          people and it works great. Mix equal amounts of apple sauce, prune juice and bran or 100% bran cerial if you can't find regular bran. Eat a couple
                          big spoonfuls every day. Eat it like a pudding.

                                Toad, while forums like this are a great place to share info and experiences, there are some questions that need to be directed to a physician. This is one of them. Too many missing variables anyway - how did the guy get into this dependency, what is his diet, does he take any prescription meds, etc. Also, seems like when folks post a quick question about a complicated issue on a public forum, they are looking for a magic bullet, and are hiding a whole lot of background and facts. I've been active on several forums on the web since you were knee-high to a dachshund - you will start to see patterns of forum behavior that repeat.
