The nurse had me take prune juice and microwave it for like 20 seconds and I had a good bowel movement, not difficult within three hours. I am sure it would not be like that for everyone. But I think it was important to warm the prune juice.
Terri.. I do use actual coffee it is a natural laxative. But for me since I knew constipation nwoikd be an issue. I increased my veggies intake like litterly I eat two large salads a day I drink green and chamomile tea both are good on kidneys and liver and helps to ease digestion. I est high whole grains and wheat products drink plenty of water. Three 16 oz bottle s a day or more. And flax seed
Thank you so much everyone! Caffeine is a trigger for my migraines so coffee is out. Enemas scare me! I increased my water intake today. I will try drinking tea and increasing my veggie intake. I have never had prune juice. Does it taste okay?
Prunes & blueberries : start with a little bit and keep adding until you find the perfect amount and then keep taking that amount or eating that amount or juicing that amount. That's what I did to help my husband who had really bad IBS.
Terri someone gave me the fixins for a Coffee enema. Had never heard of it before. I did not use it. I feel for those who can not go regularly. I go several times a day so I couldn't imagine being bound up like that. I have a friend who takes diabetic meds and it makes her go nonstop... To the tune that she has lost 55 lbs. and her doctor does not want to change her med or take her off. Prune juice is another natural... Depends on your taste buds if you like it. Well I hope you find something that works. Natural would be better than more more meds since that is the cause anyway. Happy Pooping!!
As was mentioned before prune juice is very good , mineral oil is good if nothing else works , take it before bed & it works in the morning but also aloe Vera gel in your juice every morning is also a natural laxative
