A can of 7up or coke

A quick drink of a can of 7-up or cola, worked for me in less than 30 minutes. Hope it helps you. Also, I know that rubbing some olive oil on the "back end" eases the whole thing.

Relief from constipation forever

Take 15 leaves of spinach and two tomatoes, grind them.
Extract the juice and drink first thing in the morning. It acts as laxative. This relieves the bowels.

Or soak 5-6 black dried grapes (munnaka).
Soak in the water and leave it overnight.
Eat them early morning.

This also helps cleaning of the bowels.

Acute/chronis constipation

I was suffering from constipation for about 25-30 years. I tried all my best but my problem was getting worst day by day. I had no feeling of bowl moment and I was unable pass stool for 5-6 days without using laxatives. I pray to the GOD a lot. One day it came to my mind, I am using it and by the grace of GOD it helps me a lot. It is very simple and easy. Here it is for everyone.

1. One tea spoon (1 ts) extra virgin olive oil in the morning with empty stomach.

2. One table spoon (1 tbs) of fiber husk keep in plain water for 5 minutes and then drink it, (after 1 hour of extra virgin olive oil.)
That’s it.......
You may apply this everyday or until you need it.

You can have your regular meal after one or two hours. Obviously drinking more fluid, using more fiber and eating fresh vegetable and fruits helps. I hope it will help all of you.

Best Wishes for your good health.

COFFEE! And LOTS of water. Black coffee is best, and extra espresso if possible. The caffeine will jump start your bowels if nothing else. Avoid eating until your relieved unless your eating fruit.
