Can I treat constipation with more fiber?

The recommended 7 to 10 cups of salad every day is not just for the purpose of fiber, but for the nutrients, phytonutrient, minerals and vitamins. The fiber will help to feed the colon, but if your digestive system is compromised and you don’t have the capacity to digest too much vegetables it will cause gas, bloating and pain.
