Can any of you caregivers on this forum that use integrative preventive health protocols on their frail elderly, provide me with a sample of your natural protocol that happens to work for keeping your elders bowels moving regularly and "smoothly." And thus avoiding constipation, bloating, impactions or overgrowth's of candida or bad bacteria? DRUG FREE meaning no miralax or laxatives that create a lazy bowel that eventually doesn't work anymore. I have dabbled through a book called FIBER MENACE (yup believe it or not) and it basically swears that the more fiber you eat, the wider the stool, and more difficult the cycle of bowel issues becomes. When fiber is reduced, bad bowel symptoms subside. I am getting WAY TOO MANY differing and conflicting protocols from MD's and integrative type doctors. I'd like to see what is being used for most elders to keep things moving "Naturally" for most elderly who have parkinsons or Alzheimers and possibly neuro issues.... at the moment we are doing labs to see how symptoms might be a thyroid or iron issue.... By sample protocol, I mean an hour by hour schedule showing what time one wakes, takes their supplements or moring elixers, then toileting or bathing and dressing, strolling out or sitting for a meal, drink vitamins, then a walk .... dinner etc and then a walk or what type of exercise or what is everyone doing to keep their elders free from disease?
