    I have found success by introducing fish oil into my diet. There are many brands and you want to get a good quality capsule (Barleen's). I take 6 to 10 a day after I eat. I will take 3 to 5 pills after breakfast and another 3 to 5 at dinner. This will help in the long run as well. The effects might not be noticeable right away, but will come with time.
    Good Luck!

    Yogurt with lots of active cultures should be part of his diet. Also ground flaxseed

    Miralax takes a day or two, but does work.
