A friend recently opened up to me about her problem with anal fissures. Scientifically speaking, anal fissures can happen when a rock hard turd slices one’s asshole. The problem is that every time she’d use the bathroom after that initial tear, the scab would re-open. The act of going to the bathroom hurt so bad that it encouraged her to hold it in. She was literally stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Her doctor advised her to take Miralax, which she became addicted to for years until someone introduced her to juicing. Fresh vegetable juice for breakfast has successfully replaced Miralax for her as a natural alternative. Both offer the same result: softer turds and regularity.
