ABC of Constipation


 Majid Ali, M.D.


This is my long-term prescription for the health of the bowel, brain, liver, heart, lungs, joints, and skin. Please use your good sense not to make yourself sick with my guidelines. I always prescribe magnesium, potassium, and taurine (Bowel Detox A) and cascara (Bowel Detox B ) for my patients in specific doses. So for these items, please follow my guidelines.

A.  Fiber at bedtime, psyllium (Indian Sidhpur brand preferred)

B.  Overhyderation in the morning

C.  Awaken the colon to trigger a bowel movement reflex

Three Essentials

  1. Increase amount of fiber to whatever amount it takes to have complete morning evacuation.
  2. Increase whatever fluids (water, green tea, senna tea, coffee, etc.) are needed in order to have complete morning evacuation.
  3. Do whatever it takes to have complete morning evacuation.
