[YEA]  03/05/2009: Shelley from Mississauga, Canada: "re: Water and Carots first thing in the morning.

Hello, constipation is not fun and there are many natural cures that work. I wanted to add another natural remedy because it works and its so simple. 1) Water; the body needs water. Usually when people wake up, they have coffee or some type of diuretic [caffine], which is horrible if you have constipation. Drinking 1 glass of water as soon as you wake up is what our body yearns for. Drinking 1 glass of water (at room temperature)in the morning cured my constipation within 1 week. Of coure during the day, you should drink more water, but first thing in the morning is the crutial step. 2) Carrots; not only are carrots delicious, they save our eyesight, protect our hearts, combats cancer, promotes weight loss, AND PREVENTS CONSTIPATION. I do not have constipation anymore, I hope this can help someone else. God Bless."

[YEA]  06/21/2012: Elaine from Edmond, Oklahoma, Usa: "I have been constipated for years. I either take Metamucil or take magnesium. I cut back on the mag because it is hard on the kidneys. I haven't really eaten watermelon in years. I bought a melon two weeks ago and oh my gosh. As long as I eat some watermelon every morning a goose has nothing on me. It worked for me."


[YEA]  08/23/2009: Jenny from Memphis, Tn, USA: "I always tend to forget about this easy remedy... but I swear a regular serving of fresh cut watermelon does the trick every single time... in less than an hour or so. I have had chronic constipation and GERD for years. I'll have to remember to eat my watermelon a few times a week!"


Yarrow Tea, Elevate Legs

03/03/2011: Na954 from Rochester, Minnesota : "I have suffered from constipation for years, and it was worsened by Menopause. These things have really helped. 1. Using a small step stool in front of the stool to elevated the legs. This puts the colon in a more natural positon. 2. Yarrrow tea."


Yellow Dock

[YEA]  11/15/2012: Sis Morgan from Monterey, Ca: "Yellow dock has worked for a chronic constipation problem where all other remedies failed. I had tried magnesium, and although this at first worked, it failed to work with repeated use. Likewise, a concerted try of psyllium powder did not produce the intended result. I had read about yellow dock in a Chinese herbal book and its wonderful, reliable effects for constipation, and read many testimonials in the book about the herb. I began to drink a tea of yellow dock at night. Results in the morning were immediate. The best part is that it has continued to work! I can now drink this tea every evening and go to bed knowing with certainty that I will have a bowel movement the next morning. It doesn't matter what I have eaten or even the amount of water I have drank during the day, the results are always reliable.

I have suffered from constipation for many years and this is a godsend remedy. You can buy yellow dock tea online for steeping or make your own tea from the dried root. I put about two teaspoons of yellow dock root in a metal tea strainer and pour boiling water over it and allow it to steep until the tea is a rich yellow tan. Begin with small doses for best results and work up to the dose that gives you results. Some people have to drink more than a cup a day for chronic problems. If you take too much yellow dock you can have intestinal cramps, so begin slowly for best results.

If you have had chronic constipation for many years with no help from the usual remedies, I highly recommend yellow dock tea. It has been a miracle herb for me. If the flavor is too bitter, mix some molasses with the hot tea – it's delicious!"

[YEA]  01/08/2009: Sangeetha from Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands: "I was highly constipated a few years ago and nothing helped, including ayurvedic medicines. Finally I tried yoga and my constipation was cured in a few days. I don't remember the exact name of the yoga asna for it, but I used to go for yoga classes and do various asnas and some of them were for constipation. You can surf the net for knowing the exact asna and if you are lucky to have a yoga class near you, join right away. Even now if I eat some food that make me constipated, I do yoga and it always helps. Yoga is good for external and internal organs and also for peace of mind and each asnas has several benefits."
