It however work practically in 100% of cases. Fibers likely will not help. Fibers create bulk to stimulate gut mechanically.

Constipation. Laxatives, fiber, water, diet changes, even castor oil haven't worked. Colonoscopy 3 years ago showed no bowel obstruction. Help?

Constipation. Laxatives, fiber, water, diet changes, even castor oil haven't worked. Colonoscopy 3 years ago showed no bowel obstruction. Help?

Schedule changes: May try getting up 15 minutes earlier, exercising, and then having a warm breakfast and then time to go to the bathroom for bowel function. This is retraining your bowel and may help. This may take a few days to help, but please be patient. Cut back on dairy products, as this can cause constipation. Sorry you have had so much trouble, but this can be treated. ...Read more

I've tried linzess trulance miralax psyllium and other fiber supplements diets my stool is still pencil thin. Is triphala safe?

Safe enough: Triphala is an herbal formula used in Aruvedic medicine often for bowel problems/relief of constipation. It consists of at least three plants; it is not clear what chemical is responsible for it's effects. I would be more skeptical that it would provide any benefit for you, if the other things you list have not,more than I would be worried it was unsafe. You could try it without expecting too much ...Read more

I changed my diet. Eating small meals every 3 hrs comprising complex carbs and protein. Since then suffering frm excess flatulence and stool leakage.?

Bowel flora : An inadequately-addressed problem of bowel function involves imbalance of bacterial population. Dietary changes and/or antibiotics can bring this on, and correction involves encouraging the lactobacillus and acidophilus organisms to proliferate, suppressing the methane-producing bacteria like e. Coli, proteus, pseudomonas, etc. Try a probiotic twice daily like culturelle, and yogurt twice daily. ...Read more
