Relief after a week

November 05, 2014
Dried apricots. I tried prunes and they just didn't taste good enough to eat a bunch. Dried apricots have the same amount of fiber but taste 10x better! I ate about 10 (2 servings) and I felt uncomfortable for 2 hours but I hadn't been able to go for over a week, so I hope it takes less time than that normally.

Relief in about 10 to 15 min.(instant)

October 30, 2014
Dealing with constipation will make you miserable. I've found that warming a glass (at least 8 oz.) of milk with 2 or 3 tablespoons of honey do the trick relatively quick. Add honey before heating. Don't make it hot. Just warm. Stir to dissolve honey. Drink the solution fast. Chug chug chug! Lol. Use some type of lubricant in and around your poop chute (anus). And viola! Usually takes me 10 to 15 min and I have got to go! Hope it works for you guys. Good luck!

My secret cure for constipation

September 16, 2014
I had been suffering with chronic constipation for over 20 years. After trying everything on the market and every home remedy without success, I thought I'd venture out on my own to find a cure. I can happily say that for the past 2 months after using these 2 things, I have been successfully having regular bowel movements EVERY morning without fail.

The 2 things I use is Magnesium Citrate and 5 prunes. I take both "faithfully" every night before bedtime. The amount of Magnesium Citrate I started with was 5 x 170mg capsules. After just a few days, things started working. My regimen is now 3- 170 mg of Magnesium Citrate along with my 5 prunes (which basically is 1 serving). As information, the Brand Magnesium Citrate I use is NutriCology, and I get a really great price (for 90 capsules) at Vitacost.

If you decide to give this remedy a try, I encourage you to give it at least 3 days for things to start working. After that, it's just a matter of "you" continuing the regimen without fail every night at bedtime. I wish you the same success that I've had. Good luck and God Bless!

Coffee and olive oil

August 14, 2014
Our 87 year old Mother has regular daily bowel movements but quite suddenly was stopped up and developed a hemorrhoid. Although she is not a coffee drinker, after getting ideas from this site, we gave her one cup of strong coffee with about a tablespoon of half and half and approximately a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil. We were very thankful that in about 15 minutes she got blissful pain-free relief--even before applying olive oil around and inside the anus as she was going to do.

Extra virgin olive oil

June 15, 2014
This may sound terrible, but it worked for me. It's just like the "ring stuck on our finger? Use a little soap!" Only this one, you use a bit of olive oil. Take a bout a cap Full of oil and lather your anus with it. If you can get Inside The better. It will just slide right out.

What really works without fail

June 02, 2014
Linseed-flax seed. Takes about a day to work through your system. But it works, guaranteed, no ifs or buts.

Take two to three teaspoons of flax-linseed put in a a cup. Add a third cup hot water. Let it soak awhile (five six minutes) and then swallow-if you want to chew them that's fine. By now they have swollen in the water forming a glutinous-jelly substance. And drink more than eight glasses of water. The more the better, but hey, don't try to drown yourself and don't worry you wont rust inside if you consume more water either.,)

Thereafter, if you have a coffee grinder take one teaspoon and pop it in the grinder, blitz it and pour it over cereal/yogurt or whatever. The goodness for those who do not know is on the inside of the linseed hard outer shell. For those who do not have a coffee grinder take a teaspoon linseed. Put it in a container/cup and pour hot water on and leave overnight (covered- you don't wand extra unknown bits and bobs in there).
In the morning you can eat it with your cereal or better straight from the cup. And Guys and gals, the secret is WATER. Drink it! Lots of it. You can take less or more seeds depending on your daily needs.
