hooked on laxatives

Posted by Denise on March 04, 2002 at 12:04:28:

I can not have a bowel movement without stimulation.I have been reading the protocols and I see Dr Stoll recomends mineral oil.With fiber. On the bottles it states this is a laxative-so how can this be a better alternative?
Also if you are that bad would fiber be safe?
Is primal defense a better alternative? Are there side effects with this?
I have to admit I tried the fiber and minerol oil and did not work-but minerol oil alone did but stools have been greenish-why?

Hi, Denise.

NEITHER mineral oil NOR psyllium seed (Metamucil) is a laxative!!!!!!!!!!

Follow the recommendations in the constipation archives and you will be on your way to resolving this problem. I would start with at least double the dose recommended so that your colon will have a lot to work with. Do not be afraid to use your laxative for a while to get going.

Let us know how you do.

HOWEVER, the reason you started taking the laxitives in the first place will still be there. Why did you?

Dr. Stoll
I did not mean to upset you. Minerol oil on the bottle says laxative on it.
I have been constipated that is why i started laxatives. Fiber worsend the problem. I will take your advice and thank you!

Thanks, Denise.

YOU did not upset me. It was the ignorance by the manufacturer (who knows perfectly well that this is incorrect information) spreading disinformation among the public!
