Constipation - 10 Crucial Steps to Stop Constipation Forever

by Little Linda Pinda

Stop Constipation

After Searching and Begging Professionals for Advice on How to Eat while suffering from Severe Constipation, I finally figured out by putting all the various ideas together, deleting the advice that didn't work for me and Waa Laa. No one person was able to tell me what to eat to Stop Constipation.

When I followed my own advice on how to stop constipation, I got constipation relief. When you are dealing with normal constipation due to lack of water and or poor diet, following a healthy plan should work for you. Check with your doctor to make sure it is not something more serious. Steps #1 - #10 were the answer for me. I needed to take much more drastic measures because of the deep painful and bleeding fissure that developed after taking Bentonite supplements given to me by my Chiropractor. My hope is that these measures will work for you but it is imperitive to keep eating a healthy diet not only for constipation relief but to avoid getting constipated all together.

#9 Take a Natural Laxative or Stool Softener Only when NEEDED -

This is extremely important to remember. Do not get your body addicted to Laxative and take it with caution, only when necessary. For instance: If we have out of town guests and we went out to eat and I skipped my awesome smoothie, I may decide to take a laxative to prevent re-tearing of my very delicate and vulnerable fissure. I certainly will not take for many days in row "Well, I can eat bad again today because I can always take a laxative again." DON'T DO IT. EAT HEALTHY INSTEAD, but I do keep it on hand for those FEW occasions I did eat bad. For me, I might take one once or twice a month and only because I know my fissure is at risk to re-tearing.

You will likely lose weight while you are healing hemorrhoids and fissures and stop constipation.

The Natural Laxative I took, RARELY, is Senekot.

Remember laxative can be addictive and cause your body to become dependant. Instead follow my guide #1 -#10 for normal constipation (lowering protein was for my more extreme situation because I realized that even a few bites of chicken and such was more than I could handle over and above my raw nuts). According to MY doctor, she didn't mind if I took the stool softener for my constipation treatment for an extended amount of time but with my own health sense, I wanted to use it for only as long as I needed. My favorite is Ducolax.

is in my opinion the Gold Standard. My doctor told me it is not addictive to your body as a Laxative can be. It is however more expensive. I feel that it is more powerful than Ducolax for me yet still gentle.

# 10 The MOST IMPORTANT Tip to STOP CONSTIPATION Eat 9 to 10 Servings per Day of Fruits and Vegetables.

I know it sounds like a lot. I feel if you at least set a goal toward that, you will probably eat more veggies than you are now. I can not stress this enough. I feel this is the #1 constipation treatment you can do for yourself. By eating/drinking, my Fiber Packed Fruit Smoothies, you can get at least 2 - 3 servings of fruit right there and if you can hide some spinach in there, all the better.

For normal dietary constipation I found these to be incredible solutions to chronic constipation or temporary constipation. Make eating healthier and end constipation a goal in your life. You can do it.

      @jseven lm: I don't eat bread on a regular basis anymore, just occasionally. I've had Ezekial Sprouted bread. Good idea. I have not heard of lacto-fermented veggies.

      This is an important subject in a country where cereal, grains and carbs are so highly consumed. I used to have problems, but now eat lacto-fermented veggies and if I eat bread, it is the old fashioned sprouted so it can be digested easily.

      @bechand: These were my first lenses. I maxed out the character limit on the first one. Someone so kindly wrote to me with suggestions to improve these lenses. I plan on working on them. Thank you for the suggestions. I am always ALL EARS.

      ever think of combining all these lenses? they seem to have a lot of duplicate info ... and you could have a GREAT page if you combined them and organized them well ... Possibly a Tier 1 - as you do have a lot of great info... just with it all spread out etc... Just a thought. Hope YOUR issue is under control now :O)

      @Redneck Lady Luck: I love Oatmeal. Good suggestion. Thanks for visiting.

      Oatmeal oatmeal and more oatmeal. If you don't like to eat a bowl of oatmeal in the morning then bake up a batch of oatmeal cookies and have two of those with your morning tea or coffee. Oatmeal is a wonderful natural constipation prevention tool and also helps to lower cholesterol.
