Our expert says:
Castor oil is also a rather harsh laxative which may interfere with normal bowel function and prevent uptake of essential fat-soluble vitamins. I would advise that you take supplements containing 'good' microorganisms such as Bifidoflora or Bifidoforte (buy at health shops) and use a product such as Fybogel to promote regularity. To counteract the stress it may be beneficial to do relaxing exercise such as yoga or to consult a clinical psychologist to help you to learn coping behaviours.
