I guess the pediatrician wants her on the daily softner to try to regulate her BMs. I am about to purchase the acacia fiber from this site, and I will go find peppermint at our local health store. Good thing my daughter loves white rice! I'm baffled at the thought that white rice, bread, and pasta will help when all my life I've heard that those foods are constipating.

Because of her severe and rapid weight loss (about 20 pounds this year) we currently allow her to eat anything she wants. She eats a wide variety of foods and we keep things on the healthy side. I'm about to start her on the "cheat sheet" diet that I downloaded from this site, but am so worried that she'll lose even more weight. She currently weighs 84 pounds and is 5'1". She should weigh about 100 pounds.

She has a pattern of constipation and then loose stools with waves of severe nausea. She has had symptoms for 10 months now. The pediatrician thinks that this was brought on by a stomach virus that she got last December (2013). We can't find specific foods that trigger her problems - it seems to be random.
