Hi there, My little cherub (fostered from June this year) has been diagnosed Encopresis and is currently on movicol 2 adult sachets a day and has been for several years. When she is home with bio mum, she doesn't always get her medication. She is also incontinent of urine and has an intellectual disabiilty. She is 8, but has apparently tested IQ of 66, which rates her at about age 3 in speech and behaviour. As yet, we haven't done full assessments, but that's my next step. I would like advice about natural treatments for encopresis. I would like to trial a more natural laxative. Herbalax comes to mind... I don't like this constipation medication and she's sick of it anyway. I feel 80% of the problem is probably stress related; and 20$ is itnellect. She walks around for ages unless checked, all wet/dirty and seems not to care or realise.
