Constipation due to thyroid problem

August 25, 2013
I've had hypothyroidism for 5 years now, and ever since then I've suffered from constipation. I tried EVERYTHING over 5 years. Ayurveda medicines, and western. I've had syrups, different foods, different diets and churna's. All of them have side effects and vary in effectiveness.

The thing which worked for me > Cavendish banana before breakfast/after dinner AND > Eating prunes as a snack during the day, and at least 4 prunes before sleeping AND 1 Cucumber as a mid morning/ mid afternoon snack REMEMBER, do not eat any oily/fried/heavy/processed food for the first 2 days while trying this, and it'll work for sure withing 3 days.

This combination got rid of my constipation (I get 3 BM per day), and also didn't leave me with any side effects (cramping, headaches, tiredness, skin irritation, eye dryness etc). I'm very happy, and I got the prunes suggestion from this very website! Thank you Midnight remedies, and thank you to the wonderful person who found this website for me:)
