A frequent condition of childhood developmental disorders is constipation.  This can be a toxic and unhealthy condition.  There are not many ideas that modern medicine offers for young children with constipation. 

Dr. Bob was a MD internal medicine, orthomolecular doctor, MD psychiatrist, chiropractor, and healer 65 years.  He was a diabetic who lived to 108 years with only 1 side effect 2 years before he passed away.  Dr. Bob practiced a system of medicine called orthomolecular medicine.  It is a system of medicine that uses mainly natural substances that are non-toxic and safe in wide range of doses.  It uses mainly herbs and minerals/vitamins.

Dr. Bob started as a M.D. who started treating patients in the 1930’s.  This is well before the beginning of penicillin and drug medication as a primary method of medical treatment.  Doctors’ back then used many natural methods to help patients.   

I asked Dr. Bob what methods were used before drug medication to help small children with constipation.  He replied that the methods used back then were simple and long tested ideas.  He said as far as he knew, “no thing better had come along yet to treat childhood constipation.”

Dr. Bob advised the basic method of treating small children for constipation was to increase fiber in their diet:

1.      Drink plenty of distilled water.

2.      The parent could attempt to feed the child 1-2 apples a day, for fiber.

3.      The parent could attempt to feed the child fruit at every meal.

4.       The parent could attempt to feed the child snacks of raw celery, raw carrots, and other raw vegetables containing rich sources of fiber.

5.      The parent could attempt to feed the child ˝ cup a day of beans or lentils.

6.      Constipation can be toxic and unhealthy.  Dr. Bob therefore recommended cleaning the child’s bowel system 1 time a week.  He recommended the method called 80% bowel tolerance.  There is an article on this web site listed on the directory called, “Overlooked Cure for Terminal Illness,” that describes 80% bowel tolerance.  Essentially 80% bowel tolerance is the amount of vitamin C you can tolerate in a day before you produce a watery bowel movement.  If you become expert at bowel tolerance using vitamin C, then you will give only enough vitamin C to your child to produce a normal bowel movement within ˝-1 hour after the supplementation.  However, a watery bowel movement, according to Dr. Bob would not be harmful.  He advised that the toxicity of constipation would be worse then a watery bowel movement.


Pebble formation of stools

Dr. Bob said pebble formation of stools indicated lack of water or virus.  Thus he recommended for the pebble looking stools: 1.  Drink plenty of distilled water.   2.  Consider ˝ gram to 1 gram of day of vitamin C for your child, preferably in divided doses.  The dose would depend on the weight of the child, his/her health, and so on.  Thus, it might be prudent to consider finding a nutritional specialist such as an orthomolecular doctor to help you with a nutritional and supplement program for your children.

In conclusion, check with your doctor on these ideas.  Constipation indicates that toxins and bacteria are staying longer then necessary inside the bowel system.  There can be adverse consequences to this circumstance.  It might be considered prudent to make normal bowel movements a high priority for your children.  Good luck.


Note – In order for these  ideas to be successful, you must use supplements of the highest quality. Dr. Bob often said, "almost all supplement companies produce poor quality." You can consider the product page of this web site. Almost all the products met Dr. Bob’s approval. Since he passed away we have attempted to keep the same high standards.
