Trying to solve husband's problem with warm water and honey as advised by several people. Hasn't been to the toilet for over a week and getting desperate. Saw the honey and water remedy and thought why not try it? Waiting for result.

The water and honey drink.

I have to say it's pretty sad when one is "poop envy" of their dog! She poops more in a day than I do in a week! Haha Anyway, I have not gone done Number 2 in 5 days. It's frustrating when you feel bloated and nothing is happening. So today, I looked up some home remedies and came across this website. I am so glad I did. I hate laxatives because I have a sensitive stomach. I usually eat some chocolate because that seems to make me go. Weird.. I know! I read some comments on the water and honey drink to help constipation here on this site. I thought,"I can do that! I'll try anything at this point!" I read it works quickly. I was desperate!

I used 8oz. Of water. I put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds then I put in 1 tablespoon of raw local honey, stirred it up and drank it down. It took about 15-20 minutes to work. And yes, it was a success! I am so happy. Haha. I never thought pooping could change a persons whole demeanor! Try it! You'll see. :)

Chronic constipation from meds

Stool softeners and laxatives were never reliable which was incredibly frustrating. So I tried warm water with a tbsp of raw honey and it worked within 10 minutes. I was shocked! Grateful to find this page. Thanks to the folks that mentioned this method!

Warm water and honey for the win

Absolute best home remedy for constipation, even obstipation/impaction is Warm Water and Honey. I had a blockage and NOTHING would move it. I refused to go the medical route, I still had liquid moving around the stool so I know I had a blockage and literally tried everything, stimulants, all the oils, miralax, etc and nothing moved it until I found the suggestion for warm water and honey twice per day.

I am shocked at how fast the remedy worked and how much hard stool I actually had stuck in my intestinal tract. Just drink 10-16 oz of warm water and 1 tbsp of honey before breakfast and after your last meal of the day and you WILL resolve your issues. Great treatment and cure and completely natural and healthy.

Warm honey water

I tried milk of magnesia, drinking lots of water, eating olive oil. Nothing worked because I had a rock hard log jammed at the bottom of my butt. Then I read on here that WARM water and honey works. It does work!!!! Belly thunder started started after 10 minutes, then after an hour that sucker forced its way out. It was painful and I had to clean poop for 30 minutes afterwards because the pain was too much for me to sit on the toilet, but I am cured now. Thank you internet. I used about 8oz warm water and a tablespoon of honey. Swilled it fairly quickly.

Stay by the toilet

This is not a home remedy but it is cheap, quick and effective. Everyone has heard of magnesium (milk of magnesia), but it doesn't work a tenth as good as a 10 fl oz bottle of magnesium citrate. It is a bit difficult to get it all down your gullet, but the trick is to drink the entire bottle(according to the directions), all at once. There is no trick to make it taste any better, so just turn it up and don't stop until its gone. Don't make plans to go anywhere for the next 6 to 8 hours because you will be making multiple trips to the toilet????. A ten oz bottle only costs a couple of bucks and an afternoon.

I am taking CALMAX POWDER 2 SPOON IN the morning with warm water and it works for me. Homeopathy remedy "yelo tab" works for me also. But DR. Says that should not take everyday because your body used to. Water and fiber does not work for me.I am drinking two glass of warm water and eating fruits and vegetables but these things are not working for me. Kayam churn which you can buy form indian grocery store, that works for me also.

Quick and easy

What I use that works almost every time is about 8 ounces of warm milk or half and half. Then about 2-3 tablespoons of honey. Also if you add a little cinnamon and nutmeg it will taste really good. Hope it helps! :)

Fast constipation relief remedies

Hi, Here's a drink you can take in the afternoon to activate a bowel movement. With a juicer, juice some tomatoes, carrots, and celery. By experimenting, you can discover the amount of each vegetable to use according to your taste. Mostly likely you will want equal amounts of tomatoes and carrots and you will want to add a few stalks of celery including the leaves.

Now, let's add a few more items to give your drink more pushing power. Squeeze in a small amount of garlic, onion, and radish. While juicing your carrots, juice a small bunch of spinach or parsley. Drink 1 to 1 ½ cups in the morning and see the results soon after. P.S. You can read more about constipation remedies information at fullnomore (dot) com

Relief after a week

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.
