My girlfriend is constipated almost every day it seems. She's seen a doctor, and has been to a specialist, but still doesn't know why she's almost always constipated. She's using prescribed laxatives, eats well (good amount of vegetables and fruits) but is still suffering from constipation. What's going on? This has been going on for years now, and I'm worried about her.
What are some effective ways (screenings) to find out why her colon or large intestine isn't working properly?
What is most likely the problem?
And what are some things she can eat to help alleviate her constipation?
