Try applesauce. Make sure you buy the unsweetened (organic if possible).
That usually does the trick for almost everyone I know, even when prunes
won't. My grandmother used to eat prunes, she loved them but they didn't
move her bowels as they are well-known for. But applesauce would work for
her every time.

Subject: [AlternativeAnswers] Moving Bowels......suggestions please
My Mom is about 80 y/o--she is on blood pressure meds--she eats good--drinks
a lot of fluids and is quit active.
For the last couple of weeks she has been complaining of bloating,
feeling like she has not fully evacuated when moving her bowels.
She normally has one or two good movements a day--so I'm not sure what to
think of this.
I have given her MOM--Dulcolax Suppositories, prune juice.. nothing seems to
work--she is still having some issues.
I was wondering if this might have something to do with the CT Scan which
she had 3 weeks ago--she took that white chalky stuff and says she might not
of gotten it all out? The scan was non eventful.
Her doctor has examined her--says nothing is wrong--but she is still feeling
like she is clogged up-- I would like to try and get her bowels to move
naturally for I would not want her to get impacted and have to go to a
specialist/hospital to have anything removed .
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
