before we got him the Nujol that we would have to leave his bowels unmoved for three or four then use almost a quart of water in a syringe to move The poor little fellow would almost go into spasms and his father could never stay in the room where he was it would take almost an hours work to get them to He had been constipated for two think these patctit medicines did I have known the doctor to be here and give him tablespoons of castor one every half to get his bowels to We tried four different one a well known but none could help Three advised said it was the only 1 have always had a horror of operations and I guess always We were going to try a well known woman doctor who claims she cures without an when I coaxed my husband to let me try I had read so much about I told him even if it didnt help it would not We tried started giving him three tablespoonfuls a one after each then as his bowels moved better we decreased the dose as per We used two bottles and half and we cured
