Amy, this assumes that she, and we, know what the problem is. We don't. Depending on what the problem is, eating a lot of fiber could make things worse.

Hey Stacy, I just happened to come across this Fluid Reducing and Mucus Clearing Diet (Kapha) - Pukka Herbs

"Use this diet to help clear mucus, heaviness, sinus congestion, think tongue coating, tiredness, sluggishness, high cholesterol, oedema and during winter months"

You might find some of it interesting, I know I did! :)

LOL! I have a booklet from 1922 that has a MUCUS FREE diet in it, part of
some "doctor's" colon cleansing regimen.
Back then, clean colons were all the rage. Constipation was a popular
target for Patent Medicines and the Health Culture crowd.

I think this goes without saying, especially since many people had already recommended against self-diagnosis prior to my post.

I was simply answering how to cleanse her colon; not treat any problems.

As a nurse, I know not to diagnose. Not to say we don't give our share of advice

Well, I thank everyone for their opinons and advise. As soon I get insurance, according to the boss, should all kick in, in the next couple of weeks, then, I will go to the doctor.
