ConstipationI can recommend this one. What a sweet remedy for your bowels. Unless you don't like honey, my father in law now 90 years young has been hospitalized for this issue many many times. This past month was my 1st bowel obstruction. Horrible pain to be thru I read and tried the honey and hot water in sheer desperation. And, I CAN SAY YES, it really does work within an hour for me my tummy was rumbling. Great solution for pennies.

Senna leaves/teaThis is a very strong natural laxative. Boil a tsp of leaves or pods in a cup of water. Add honey and drink. It doesn't taste bad, takes a few hours to kick in. If the tea was strong enough, it will totally clean you out (sometimes too much, so be careful).

Honey and waterSpent 40 mins trying to go. So much discomfort it was hard to walk. Di the one tablespoon of honey in a cup of warm water, worked in less than 10 mins!

Works every time (not instant but works)Aloe Vera is the miracle plant that will keep you regular. Blend enough of the aloe vera leaf to make a cup (8 oz). Blend the whole leaf minus the thorns. The inner part is tasteless but the green part is bitter. You may add a bit of orange juice to disguise the taste. It will take a few hours, possibly even overnight for a severe obstruction, but it WILL work. Drinking aloe on a regular basis will have you going regularly. Blend it smoothies, etc... Also, there are so many other additional health benefits your body will thank you.

Quick fixI had cancer so I am still on a lot of pain killers which causes OIC. I drink Mira lax every day and take 3-100mg stool softners every day as well but it had been 3 days since my last BM so I started to panic because I ended up in the E.R. last year when I hadn't had a BM in 4 days. I tried a few of the remedies here but the one that worked the best was honey and warm water. Tasted disgusting but I chugged it down and ten minutes later I had a BM!

Warm water and honeyI was super constipated and it hurt to even sit. I decided to try the 8oz of water and honey mixture and it was disgusting only got two big gulps before I had to dump it out and wash the taste away with something else. Not even lying 10 mins later I felt like my stomach would explode so I went in the bathroom and within seconds instant relief!

Attempting honey and warm waterI haven't gone in over a week, and it was the week I was menstruating so I normally would go twice as often. I'm desperate for relief now. I just tried some honey in warm water... Hopefully I don't vomit from chugging a bunch of water... Ten minutes in, nothing yet. Twenty five minutes later, relief of belly discomfort, but no bowel movement yet.

Dr.pepperI switched from coke to Dr. Pepper when I eat I dont drink like 10 or 6 cans of it a day or anything like that, just when I eat. I believe it is made with some prune out of the 23 things. Very helpful though, I know how it is, landed in the hospital my self just desperate for a solution. Even though it may not work for everyone its defenetly worth a try. It helped me and it may work for you. The best thing is you dont need a referal.

Er nurseI have suffered from chronic constipation my whole life, over the counter remedies use to work fine, but now in my 50's they don't . I am currently taken Rx Linsezz and it is not helping at all added miralax still not much relief. I do Kombuca tea, fruit veggie smoothies I eat high fiber diet, take probiotics.
Been admitted to hospital with surgeon wanting to do a resection of colon( not sure why). No one can go 30 days without a bowel movement...It is physically impossible and my 20 years as a nurse knows that, but when admitted to the hospital it had been 7 days and my colon had swollen to the point of rupture ...The reason the surgeon wanted to resect the colon. I have done, MOM, every laxative on the market, Golytely...Nothing is working. The honey and warm water is the same as given your infant karosyurp...High sugar and warm water...Unfortunately I am a type I Diabetic so high auger does work for me. The only thing that has helped once before in the hospital was an enema that consisted of Nornal saline mineral oil and hydrogen peroxide.
Please any new idea this old bird willing to listen.
