Thank you so much for this post ArchitectDad.
My son has CP and Epilepsy and chronic constipation and went through this string of disease
from March to November.
Constipation - kidney stones with kidney lithotripsy - surgery of growth plates in legs (pain treatment was morphine) - pancreatitis - constipation
All was with hospital stay and the last was to clean him out. He had terrible cramps with Miralax. For days he did not want to eat or drink and we were forced to feeding by spoon and making him drink with a syringe. He is a poor eater and often got the processed and bleached wheat diet and did not drink hardly any water only juice. But after giving him CALM Magnesium and a healthier diet with some water all is better 1000%. In addition a Magnesium deficiency can cause kidney stones... who knew
A study is out there about
Magnesium and B6 that reduced kidney stones.
There is evidence that the water we drink now has less magnesium to include the processed foods we eat.
So, to all that are fighting with cramps and bloating and pain on Miralax maybe you need a Magnesium supplement. It was literally a MIRACLE for us.
I guess I knew our world and thus our food is deteriorating and processed foods are worthless but I was not adding things up for my son. I also learned that water is not good unless it has the minerals that you need are in it.
I am currently investigating the daily mineral and vitamin intake for my son.
FYI - There is also a study for autism on Magnesium and B6. B6 is needed to process Magnesium I believe. http://autism.healingthresholds.com/therapy/vitamin-b6-and-magnesium
