Bowel Movements

Recommended Posts

Ohhhhhhhhh...... well darn, then I have a whole different set of suggestions.

First off, iron is a natural constipator I believe so you may want to leave that alone! Also stay away from Bananas. Colace is a laxative so you don't want to go that route if you are just wanting to encourage a bowel movement. You may end up with diarhea. And you should check with the doctor before attempting a laxative.

Choose foods that are naturally high in fiber to promote good bowel health. Also try apples, apples, apples. Also drink lots of water.

Some band friendly suggestions.....


berries such as blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries

oranges, apples and pear


broccoli, spinach, swiss chard and green peas

dried peas and beans such as kidney beans, lima beans, black-eyed beans, chick peas and lentils

flaxseed (grind them and mix them into any food, mashed potatos are best)

Jenna thanks so much...I misunderstood the info I got from the other board about iron,so I know to stay away from that, and since colase involves a tube (LOL) Im staying away from that too!

I will try the extra fiber to see if it makes a difference... thanks for the specifics on the fruits and veggies... Kyle
