Foods that work for constipation

Edited , 6 users are following.

i have had constipation and have been taking Laxido for years which of course is now a waste of time. Has anyone any idea of the foods that really get things moving. I have heamorroids quite badly and hard stools are really painful. Sorry about the spelling I just took a stab at it.

      My wife takes Laxido and I take Lactulose neither are really effective for stubborn constipation.

      My diet preferences are two oranges a day, dates and wholemeal bread. I have a fairly ripe banana most days as well as broccoli but had not realised them to be in that that category

      I think that in your and my GP's opinion that I drink too much milk. well over a pint a day.

      I don't dilute it in warm water I wash it down in warm water that way the Lactoluse helps to draw the water into your bowels which then helps to soften your stools and i find that while asleep the lactoluse can do its job Don't expect it to work on the first night but it will work in time and you can also take it at breakfast time too and water too

    Hi Bianca, First be sure to get your MIN 6 glasses of water and then other fluids too, esp..if you're sweating, if its hot out, exercising helps move things along(even just walking)...increase your fiber (around 20 g/daily, use something like Benefiber & etc) yogurt with probiotics...also cutting back on dairy(other than you yogurt) it can be constipating, try prunes/prune juice...ask your DR for something like PEG3350/RESTORALAX(other names) it sucks water into the bowel, it takes a few days to kick in but, it can clean out everything, even if its been awhile or you are already constipated...you can mix it with liquid...I take it for 6 days, skip one....it works great!!! No cramps, no bad gas pain, no bloating...works every time...You can also lightly massage your belly, it can help relax spasm and move things along, a heating pad helps too, ask your Dr if these things can be helpful to you!! Good Luck & BEST WISHES💒☮🌈🎶♾💞🐾🍀
