    @_eric_, I got my mail-ordered bottle of the aloe vera juice you recommended (wow! big bottle for not much money!), so I'll be trying it out on my mom today. I tried some to see how it tasted and it's not bad. We'll see if I can sneak it by her consistently. She has GERD, so even if it doesn't have the desired effect on her BMs, managing the GERD will be a plus.


    @Lexicon, nothing much grosses me out, either. My mom used to work in the ER and she would sometimes tell stories of the patients while we were eating. I don't remember much detail, but I do remember something about someone coming in with their eyeball hanging out of its socket, and something about intestines hanging out. I used to gross out my friends in middle school by relaying these tales during lunch!

    Reminds me of how I'd find pictures of leprosy patients in the encyclopedia in study hall and quietly show them to my friends, who'd freak out/get scolded for talking.

    green smoothies work. make sure to blend it nice and smooth, plenty of leafy greens and a pear gives a nice texture, tastes good, good way to get a salad and fruit into your diet in a couple gulps and makes you poo quite nicely. comes out smooth, but it's not gross or anything and when you wipe it's one wipe clean! that's a clean white square folks. i'm pretty sure that counts as magic.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    My initial thought was, "mom won't drink it", but maybe I can spoon it to her instead. It's worth a try. What greens do you use?

    And lol at the clean white square!


    As for the aloe vera juice, mom seems to actually like it in her tea. The bottle said to put it in a cool drink, so I cheat a bit by getting the tea just tepid (instead of warm) and then adding the juice. I think she likes the citrus tang, because that's about all you can really taste (citric acid was used as a preservative). Have only been drinking it for a few days, so no noticeable results yet.

    To help with the 'warm vs cold' thing... Generally it is harder and takes longer to digest cold things. The cold item will remain in your tummy until it is a suitable temperature for the body to digest. Whenever you are dehydrated you really should drink lukewarm to slightly warm water even if it is not as refreshing as cold water.

    I also agree with the prune juice, and aloe vera is useful for like a hundred things. I have never used it for digestive problems, but it is a well known remedy for it.

    @Bamboo, my first green smoothie was a success! Thanks for the suggestion. I spoon-fed it to my mom and she liked it. It's a good way to get more liquids into her, also, instead of always giving her jello. I was even able to add the aloe vera juice to it. Yay!

    Oh, good!

    To answer your question above I typically use raw kale or spinich.
