Bloating is a result of several different causes, such as fermentation from refined carbohydrates such as sugars, sandwiches, pastas, and putrefaction of protein foods , such as meat, fish, eggs, cheese, and milk. Dairy foods alone can severely block of the lymphatic system, especially cause lymph edema in the cystern chyli sacks the abdomen, which will look like a person is pregnant. Fluid retention becomes necessary to neutralize some of the stuck toxic waste matter.
Microwave foods can do the same. Irregular sleeping habits and eating times (especially eating the main meal in the evening) can easily constipate a person and make him/her quite toxic. There is a lot information about this problem of hers in The Key to Health and Rejuveanation.
If she wishes to get better, she needs to take self-responsibility by studying what she can do about it. The books to deal with these problems are there. The bile duct congestion in liver is a leading cause for poor digestion, constipation (see The Amazing Liver Cleanse). It is a mute effort to just take laxatives to ease the constipation without attenting to the causes.
With kind regards
