I developed severe constipation about 10 years ago. i exercise and eat right. ive discussed this with my dr but nothing that was recommended has helped. I've tried everything from Miralax, drinking more water, daily laxative... high fiber foods just make me bloated.. The only thing that works is to plan my week out and take a bunch of laxatives on the night before and go the next morning. This is not healthy. Help?

      Have you tried probiotics? They might help

      Have you tried large volume enemas? I take 2 a day and they totally clean me out

      Thank you for sharing about the constipation. I have been severely constipated since gallbladder was taken out. I have tried so many things. It is exhausting. It really hurts if I get too backed up. 😁 I don't know. Right now, I am at a loss but hopeful that at some point doctors will figure it out. Will see a more integrative approach doc this month.

      Try 1/4 tsp of Castor oil (Hexane free, good quality — check reviews). Add more if needed. Can be taken on it’s own, added to soup or drinks, etc.

      Thank you for the info. My dr hasnt been of help at all so I'm at my wits end.

      I’ve recently learned about lazy bowel syndrome. You may look it up. There are some treatments more aggressive than just home remedies. Sacral nerve stimulation is my next plan of action
