    I agree with the other comments. Yes, a healthy diet and exercise help, but magnesium, specifically magnesium oxide supplements will do the trick. The squatting position makes a huge difference too. You just need something so that your knees are higher than your hips.. A child's grow tall step is perfect.

      Or, if you haven't got steps, it helps almost as much to raise one knee at a time and pull it towards you...

      As a tourist in China toilets used to be just a hole in the ground before Western-sryle seated ones were introduced. Squatting over the hole is a much heathier position, I agree with you.

      Ditto India. Actually, In india, most toilets still are the squatting kind. Not to mention the open fields!

      had a good laugh on this.. this is common really in some asian countries that are underdeveloped but they are the ones too blessed with too many fruits and vegetables... fruits and vegetables easily grow in  the tropics,the best remedies for diseases.

    Rebounding is amazing at getting the bowels moving for some reason (jumping on a mini trampoline), I would do this in the morning and it worked great. Running or doing any other physical activity doesn't even compare to rebounding. Unfortunately, I can't do it anymore because I have a spinal injury, but back in the day it helped amazingly with my chronic constipation, I definitely recommend it. 

    Drinking a glass of lemon water with cayenne pepper in it at night and in the morning along with making sure to eat breakfast and eat regularly seems to be keeping me regular for now! 

    Things that never worked for me but might work for others: Prunes, all kinds of fiber, drinking tons of water, a tablespoon of oil, milk of magnesia, increasing my intake of magnesium, eating soaked chia seeds and flax seeds.

    If u believe in Bach Flower Remedies, then WHITECHESTNUT remedy will help. Please note that this is not a substitute for regular medication. To be more specific , let me tell u. Just apply 2 drops on your skin, may be at any part of the body. Please do a research on Bach flower remedies. If u r convinced give a try. If skeptical about it please ignore

    If u believe in Bach flower remedies, the above symptoms correspond to the Remedy namely Whitechestnut. In your case, this will cure your chronic constipation. Try eating banana. Before going to bed give a massage to your feet using warm water. The other medicines are Mustard and Rock rose. Of course, this is not a substitute for regular medication. If u doubt pl. Dont take it
