Bowel Support/ Natural Suppliment advice needed
Hello all. I’m new to the group, have read several posts but this is my first. My son Cayden is 2.5 and has Spina Bifida. I just spent $$$ and a bunch of time at Natural Grocers and came home with some loot to move poop. Looking for advice. He is currently on an adult dose of Juice Plus, 1/4-1/2tsp miralax, probiotic, flaxseed oil, and essential oils.
If you have experience with any of the following would love input or suggestions for dosing. (Cayden is 2.5 weighs around 24lbs).
- Natural Calm (magnesium suppliment)- i have researched this and know the safe dosing amount to avoid toxicity for my son’s age.
- Blackstrap Molasses
- Kids Trace Mineral Drops
- Mag O7 (someone posted about Oxy Powder in an FB group. This looks like a very similar product)- I contacted Oxy Powder for dosing guidance and they wouldn’t give any for children.
Also FYI I”ve been giving him a capsule of Flaxseed Oil daily and have been able to reduce the miralax dose (was 1/2tsp daily down to just more than a 1/4 tsp now). I just cut the capsule open and sqeeze it on his food.
I don’t want to start giving him stuff without doing my homework, but it’s also hard to find dosing suggestions for kids. Especially kids with Neurogenic bowel who need a long term plan.
Thanks in advance for the help!
