I have suffered constipation all my life .Ever since I moved to the Us , as surely as the cool temperatures hit the winter so also my constipation. I feel like I am birthing a baby. I have tried every thing from drinking the 8 glasses of water a day (which helps in relieving my constipation only in the summer,exercising, higher fiber intake ( which is really difficult since I am a limited eater and eating more fibrous foods makes me feel so bloated and limit my veggies. I even tried Metamucil but my stomach hurts with that. I drink a teaspoon instead of a tablespoon of Metamucil now sometimes just to increase fiber intake. The one thing which worked for me is prune juice. An online article says to drink 2 glasses. Try to see how much works for you as this juice causes watery stools in some people. For me it worked magic. I did not have pain. My stools were soft as in summer, no burning, itching, straining. I am grateful. Seriously. No hassel of buying and mixing 2/3 juice types. No peeling and chopping fruits and mixing with their juices. No need to buy any oils , herbal supplements. Just head to Walmart and get that juice box and drink away.Also if you decide to eat ripe pruunes instead, then eat six to 12 prunes throughout the day --- with your meals, between meals or a combination of both.
Eat 2 or 3 dill pickles, or just drink the juice. It will work in about 15 minutes.
take one teaspoon thriphala with lukewarm water at bedtme. and take 2 or three spoons castor oil early morning it can help for constipation and also improves daigetion .harmless . can take regularly
I started having constipation problems after a long trip out of the country. I tried many remedies but nothing worked. I heard about PoopDoc constipation formula on the radio and decided it was worth a try. I love it!
I also eat a very high fiber diet and drink several bottles of water a day ... really necessary for good digestion and colon health!
I find that raising my feet up about 6-12 inches to go to the bathroom (usually put my bathroom trash can on its side) and lightly rubbing/massaging the depression just under my kneecap, down my shins and all the way to the toes seems to trigger a response to relax and go. Some places work better than others on different days. So I stop at the places that seem to work best that day.
I have found that 1/2 cup of sauerkraut with my dinner works well. I think it is the probiotics. Yogurt never worked for me, but sauerkraut has.
Constipation is best treated if your diet contains fibres and not skipping meals and at least 8 glasses of water.Best remedy that i have experienced is to drink hot water in the morning after waking up and a glass of hot milk with a tablespoon of ghee before going to bed.It really works
We get our olive oil from Greece and its the best thing EVER! Drink 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. It really works!
