Your post was 40 days ago and I am surprised nobody responded because Lentill Soup does help with constipation. That is a very good suggestion because it is natural and healthy. Also adding the olive oil is very important because it will help your system. Continual use of laxatives are addictive and cause a "lazy" colon, so try to get back to NOT using them if you can.
I haven't been looking or posting on the board for quite some time as my system is functioning much better than a year ago. I truly believe that God answered my prayer because it didn't look like I would ever be able to have a bm without laxatives. Even though I don't always have a full evacuation and I usually go every other day. For that I am very thankful that I am still functioning with the Lord's help and watching my diet, so don't give up hope!
