Re: fighting digestive disorders/constipation
In the laxative department, Triphala is the only things I would ever consider using. It is not a stimulant so one does not develop dependency.
What dietary restrictions do you have with the ulcer? Without knowing, more fiber ought to help the constipation. Some get it from grains and bran, but these can be irritating to the digestive track, so might not be appropriate for you. Veggies and fruits add fiber to the diet (plus lots of nutrients). Prunes. Yogurt can help. Cutting out all the refined, processed foods; getting sufficient good fat.
