Coccyx diets

Mel B -

This may be useful to anyone suffering with troubles when going to the toilet...

Linseed-natural, organic (available from most supermarkets or health food shops) just have a small handful, whether sprinkled on cereal, toast, pasta or straight from the box . . . also, bran, again, organic, natural, and just mixed with a bit of milk with cereal.

Painkillers block you up - particularly voltarol, amytriptyline, dihydicodeine etc - try not to take these if the pain from toiletting is too much - YOU DON'T WANT PILES!! This was recommended to me by Michael Durtnall, Sayer Clinic, London...and it works!
