TMI, but need to ask this

My friend cannot have a bowel movement unless she drinks a cup of coffee in the morning every day. What is a healthier alternative to have a bowel movement without all the caffeine?

  • Up her fiber and water intake and wean herself off the coffee...the body will re-regulate itself eventually...sorry I don't know any "quick" answer to that one...

  • The bowels are stimulated to eliminate after a meal. Have her try herbal tea if she doesn't want to eat an actual breakfast instead of coffee.
