My daughter has severe chronic constipation. She’s been constipated since she was baby… maybe 9-12 months old. She’s now almost 9, recently she started complaining of stomach aches and heart palpitations (probably not related), so I took her into her pediatrician, and they did an X-ray and EKG. Heart looked good, but they found large amounts of stool throughout her colon. She recommended Ex-Lax and MiraLAX.
We have tried Miralax in the past with not much luck, and I never felt comfortable giving it. She says she wants to treat for six months to a year or more! I’ve tried essential oils and green smoothies. I’m not very good at being consistent though so now is time to get a routine down to get her moving. Any suggestions on what can I do to cure this naturally at home? Started 2 days ago using organic pure prune juice, prunes, smooth move tea, and tried some magnesium liquid today… so far it’s not looking good. Only some small hard balls this morning (sorry if TMI).
