Re: [IP] Constipation issues

You ever wonder what our grandparents would say? take some cod liver oil for 
corn sake!!!!! It is true to some extent, eating a balanced diet especially 
those veggies and that apple to keep the doctor a day to keep the doctor 
away do help many! ;-)

I do have osteoporosis in my family of origin and during my bone scan was 
told I had some early signs of bone deficiencies. My grandmother and great 
grandmother had the dowager's hump that now my chiropractor is trying to 
correct (plus telling me to stand up straight, not site cross legged all 
habits when I do follow them I don't need to go back for a readjustment.)
