Whole flax seed

When nothing else works, I find that eating 2-4 Tablespoons of raw flax seed will guarantee a good bm. Flax also has tons of omega 3s, its good stuff. I also cook raw flax with my rice... plumps up nicely and adds a nice nutty flavour.

Cure for constipation

I'm pregnant and I drink this "pregnancy tea" every morning or if you are not pregnant. (2 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses in a 8oz glass of warm water). This is a cure for constipation, fatigue and also clears up 97% of your complexion. This really works. God is good.

Warm Milk Coffee

For a Warm glass of milk, mix a table spoon of instant coffee such as Nescafe after a breakfast and have a nagging constipation disappear as warm milk and coffee both induce smooth bowel movements. I discovered this accidentally and it works for almost all the people I recommended. Give it a try definitely if you are sufferring from constipation. I would like to hear from people if it worked for them. Feel free to drop an email at k3wm at yahoo.com

No more Laxatives

I used to be hooked on laxative pills and couldn't move my bowels without them. I was too embarressed to tell anyone, but my doctor found out and recommended prune juice.

Since I started drinking 1 ounce of prune juice every morning I have not had to take the pills. Perhaps this will help somebody who relies on laxatives too much.

Constipation help

Dates have gentle laxative properties. For that purpose, 5 or 6 can be soaked in warm water until cool. They should be chewed well and followed with the remaining water. Do this morning and night.
