My husband was in an accident three years ago, he broke his back in several place and has some nerve damage. Since the accident he suffers from difficulty urinating, he is being treated with hytrin which yeilds decent results. He also has chronic constipation however, doctors have not explored the cause of this constipation they only treat it with laxatives and stool softeners which have less than desirable results. He is becoming more and more frustrated with this condition.Could you please lend some advice as to what avenues he should persue. Oh i forgot to mention, after extensive physical therapy these are the only residual effects that he suffers from. Thank you for any help you can provide.

  • If the bowels are not moving properly it can mean he is blocked up so a good detox cleanse is great and then maintain it with fruit and veges to get his body back to running right. Stay away from bread and dairy products.
