Damage From Excessive Use of Laxatives?
Hi Ted, I have been using natural remedies for sore throats and sinus infections that I got from earth clinic and they miraculously worked. I have been having bloating, cramping and lower abdominal pains since August. I had a cat scan and nothing showed up. I am not in pain any longer but have bloating and constipation. I was always constipated and have been using laxatives all my life. The doctors want me to have a colonoscopy but I am reluctant because of complications that may arise. I know that you are not a doctor but I value your opinion. I am now in my late fifties and have no other medical problems. Do you think excessive use of laxatives caused my suffering?
