Extra virgin olive oil

This may sound terrible, but it worked for me. It's just like the "ring stuck on our finger? Use a little soap!" Only this one, you use a bit of olive oil. Take a bout a cap Full of oil and lather your anus with it. If you can get Inside The better. It will just slide right out.

What really works without fail

Linseed-flax seed. Takes about a day to work through your system. But it works, guaranteed, no ifs or buts.

Take two to three teaspoons of flax-linseed put in a a cup. Add a third cup hot water. Let it soak awhile (five six minutes) and then swallow-if you want to chew them that's fine. By now they have swollen in the water forming a glutinous-jelly substance. And drink more than eight glasses of water. The more the better, but hey, don't try to drown yourself and don't worry you wont rust inside if you consume more water either.,)

Thereafter, if you have a coffee grinder take one teaspoon and pop it in the grinder, blitz it and pour it over cereal/yogurt or whatever. The goodness for those who do not know is on the inside of the linseed hard outer shell. For those who do not have a coffee grinder take a teaspoon linseed. Put it in a container/cup and pour hot water on and leave overnight (covered- you don't wand extra unknown bits and bobs in there).
In the morning you can eat it with your cereal or better straight from the cup. And Guys and gals, the secret is WATER. Drink it! Lots of it. You can take less or more seeds depending on your daily needs.

Salt and citrus

Mix 1 tablespoon of lemon or lime juice, 1 tablespoon of salt in one cup of water and drink. Continue to drink water (salt increases thirst). Should provide a bowel movement in 30 minutes to an hour. May take longer. Avoid if you are on a salt restricted diet.

Enzymes, fiber, probiotics, ect

I do all of the below and it works amazingly. I suffered severe constipation and bad digestion issues because of having eating disorders for 13 years (my bowels had shut down).

- Drink diluted apple cider vinegar before meals to get saliva glands working properly to help digestion
- Take enzymes before meals
- Take probiotics - Drink fiber, like metamucil, with water before bed
- Rebounding (jumping on mini trampoline) for 5-10 mins can really get the bowels moving fast.
- Add in Hot and Cold Hydrotherapy, Skin Brushing and Detox Herbs for added benefits.
The most important things are the enzymes and fiber!

Tips for relieving constipation


The sure shot ways of curing constipation are:

1. Take 15ml of Lactulose solution 3 times a day.
2. Take 2 big teaspoons of stool softener 3 times a day.
3. Drink a lot of water (8-10 glasses).
4. Take warm milk with honey 2 times a day. Coffee also does the trick.
5. Take 1 spoon of psyllium husk with 2 glasses of water in the night. You will definitely have a BM in the morning. Psyllium Husk also cleans the intestines.
6. Place a hot water bottle on your lower abdomen, back, below your hips, and in between your legs alternately. Do this for 2-3 hours or overnight.
As you sleep, press a hot water bottle in between your legs (it should touch your rectum).

If the above-mentioned points do not relieve the constipation, take a fleet enema. It should produce a BM within 10 minutes. If this also does not work, immediately go to a hospital. DO not wait as you might be suffering from a serious impaction.

Coffee and probiotic combo

Coffee and Probiotics. Avoid the spore-forming bacteria tho. There are a few OTC products but only one with real probiotics (like you find in yogurt). That'll do the trick in short term, long term and in-between. The bonus is you get the energy boost from the coffee to counteract the zap of energy your body has from the discomfort. The good probiotic coffee is called something like cafe or caffe viva. And if you're curious, it tastes pretty dang good.
