How can I recover from Laxative Abuse?

I've been taking laxative since I was 13/14 years old and now I range from 30-40 through out the day. If I try to stop and take metamucil, eat veggies (ex: asparagus, brocolli) I just get gas and wont go to the bathroom for 5 days until I give up and take laxative again. Sometimes fibersure doesnt even work unless I saturate my drink wit 1/2 a bottle of it, which gives me bad gas and bloatedness throughout the day.


How can I recover from this problem??

I'm 19 years old about to be 20 this month. So thats about 6 years on laxative

Re: How can I recover from Laxative Abuse?

Consider doing a series of colonics, or colon hydrotherapy to eliminate constipation and restore normal bowel function.

Colon hydrotherapy is a gentle infusion of water into and out of the colon.
Colonic cleansing can remove pockets of old, dried fecal matter or mucosal pockets. It can be a healing technique for relieving gas, bloating, abdominal discomfort and so on.

Look it up on the web. Or do a search on the health boards.

Good luck.

Re: How can I recover from Laxative Abuse?

I'm not sure if I'm understanding this right are you saying that you take 30-40 laxatives per day!!? If you are taking that many a day. Then you really need to go and discuss this with a doctor thats a incredibal amount of laxatives for any one to take per day..
