Thank, DJ. Glad to help. I still have my left-over supply of Phillips, which I had smuggly thought was the most “trust-worthy”, prior to my investigation. Ironically, I didn’t do the research for myself, but for my precious tiny rescued kitten, who became near death with constipation. I wormed her with herbs and gave her the non-Phillips brand milk of magnesia...a tiny amount. That worked. After that, for any constipation problem, I just gave her a little cooked okra juice. Weeks later, healthy, when she could eat solid food, I found her a new mama, where she thrives.
Once a day since my accident 13 years ago. I take 6-7 Senna and 3 Ducosate Sodium pills each night. Each morning I take a Magic Bullet suppository and sit for 60-75 minutes. I hate this, and sometimes feel as if it is the Bain of My Existence, but it is necessary.
Hello everyone. I work at a research center and we need volunteers with SCI for whom bowel function is a challenge, in order to help us in our effort of developing a new and easy to use bowel care device for use by people with SCI and neurologic diseases such as ALS, Parkinson's etc. who suffer from neurogenic bowel and constipation or incontinence. That is right We are about a year out from getting this thing approved by the FDA if all goes as planned We are a not-for-profit organization, and have done some good work in the past. No need for digital stimulation, Bisacodyl suppositories, enemas, laxative pills, anything by mouth etc. Diet rich in fiber would help but is also not required. So far we have had great success with this.
If you live within 60 miles of New York city and want to do a research study let me know. It requires 7 visits of about 90 minutes each. You will get reimbursed for this. 4/26/2018
