M.D.: The longer the stool remains in a person's bowels, the more water is absorbed from it. This causes the stool to become increasingly hard and dry, and thus it is difficult to eliminate.
Nutritionist: More bulk in the diet, especially raw fruits and vegetables, bran cereals, and whole grains.
Psychiatrist: In most societies where there is early toilet training, control of body functions becomes intertwined with emotional control. Emotions repressed while coping with stressful events also affect the lower intestine, colon, and sphincter muscles. Resolving conflicts, or learning how to cope better with your everyday stresses, can solve elimination problems.
