I have a co worker who has a special needs child. She is having trouble with constipation. I at first recommended Schulze formula number one, but then asked about any kind of inflammation, and he said she has irritable bowel, which I know these people cannot take Intestinal #1
I am afraid to recommend Intestinal #2 because I know that can constipate a person further, without being able to use #1 with it. I have been through all of my Schulze books and cannot find anything specific for this kind of situation.
So what can he do? He says she poops like once every six days, and it is a massive amount. Maybe she is evacuating everything at once. It just still doesn't seem healthy for her body to work this way.
He said she was on some kind of drug for awhile that worked well, but then the doctors said she couldn't take it anymore, I cannot remember why.
When I asked about her diet, he said she eats mostly fruits, vegetables, and chicken, with occasional yoghurt, and chocolate milk like once a month as a treat.
He said she is also missing her ileocecal valve. I can't help but wonder if the poop is backing up because of the missing valve, and then the pressure finally builds up enough, and she just explodes.
Anyway, any advice would be well appreciated, he is very concerned, and the doctors say they can't help her.
