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.

Relief in about 10 to 15 min.(instant)

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

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

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.
