    You may need to increase your fiber intake --- like fresh vegetables and grains. Be sure to drink plenty of water.

    Stay safe

      Chelated magnesium twice per day has helped me tremendously. I think its 500 mg. The one by Soloray.

      It was recommended by my PFD therapist and she was right.

          You may want to add fresh vegetables and grains. Too much rice can be constipating without vegetables.
