Fruit-Eze, I'm gonna give it a try!

Michaela: 1 accident
Maeve: ?
Alasdair: ?

Back to the office for me today! But Michaela had a crapper accident right before bed, so I made her drink some juice with Miralax in it. But on one of my online HD groups I heard about this stuff called Fruit-Eze that I want to try. It's basically just a jelly made with prunes, plums, raisins, etc. and has a ton of soluable and non-soluable fibre. Supposedly it tastes good, and 1 tbsp on some toast gives like 5 grams of daily fibre, which is like 25%!! And I like the idea of it just being fruit instead of chemicals and laxatives. It's kind of pricey, and it looks like you can only get it from their website, but I'm going to give it a try. Woo hoo!

I'm thinking of trying it too, but really wish our local health food store sold it... don't wanna pay shipping on top of already high price. I'm avoiding Miralax because of the horror stories -- I just can't make myself take those risks I've read about. But SOMETHING's gotta give or my daughter is going to end up with a stretched colon or too many toxins, etc. all due to holding poop in. Some of her situation is probably psychological since her poops have occasionally hurt and are very difficult to get out. Going to try magnesium, vit c and benefiber first. Keeping my fingers crossed. Angela

Fruit Eze works. They have free shipping. I have IBS and was dependent on laxatives. No more! Now I'm going to put it on my sons jelly bread
