O K Im 49 and had this problem for about a year, I have all the symptoms except the mucus thing
My wife works in a healthfood store and brought home some Goji juice. I took one tablespoon full with some water right before supper, I tried to keep a resonable size portion so I wouldn't explode, Guess what. I didnt explode. The next morning when I got up to go It wasn't the dreaded D. It wasnt perfect but it was way improved.
The after sensation of not being finished was much briefer and the insecure feeling of not being able to keep it closed was also way better. I now take it 3 times a day and feel if this continues I might be able to actually smile again. She also got me a small bottle of Mangosteen, I havn't tried it yet but I plan on it. If this stuff works it is a godsend. I am just a regular guy with bouts of depression now and then like most of you. I thought I would tell you people this is working for me. The relief was almost instant. Hope somehow to help others. Oh, find a healthfood store in your area, I heard there is some scams online. Peace to you and hope it helps. John
