[YEA]  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]  Drinking four to five glasses of water every morning before brushing your teeth will cure constipation in ten days. Avoid eating till about 45 minutes after consuming water in the morning. I tried many therapies but this one has been most successful and is a long term solution. Whenever I feel blocked, I consume more than four glasses in the morning. Sometimes even two glasses or one are enough to flush out the system.

[YEA]   I also drink several glasses of water on an empty stomach in the morning with much success. (32-48 ounces usually). It's a great daily habit. Water on an empty stomach causes the colon to spasm and move the contents, as I understand it. You're also rehydrating your body after sleeping all night. I usually have a successful bathroom visit in 30 minutes or less. I eat breakfast about 30 minutes to an hour later. To resolve a more severe case of constipation, I have had success by adding several other remedies listed here to the water remedy (e.g., sea salt cleanse, eating a cucumber, magnesium oxide).

If you drink a glass of warm water or tea first thing in the morning it also helps. For more severe cases add molasses! Fruit first thing in the morning also helps in most cases..... Or dried prunes during the day! Another suggestion is magnesium chloride diluted in water but it tastes awful and a while ago it ended by giving me constipation.

[YEA]  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]  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!

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.

[YEA]  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.
