So no matter which type of tea fits your palate,it will keep you safe at health Here are some of the most common teas available in the market

      Russel,other things apart from water and papaya that are used as stool softer create a habit of taking them ,I mentioned a homeopathic drug called carica papaya(WHICH HAS NO SIDE AFFECTS.)AS IT IS AN EXTRACT OF PAPAYA IT SELF

      Thanks lotuslove19 - without getting too much into the subject, stool softener works miracles. In the Cook Islands, papaya did the trick. It's not that available here and fruit juices just juice up the Diabetes readings. Water is good and now that the dam has broken, hopefully it will continue regularly. However, Tea is a question point medics are not settled on yet. David

      Russell,if you have constipation have papaya fruit every day and when you cant get it you may have 10 drops of carica papaya mother tincture(homeopathic medicine) 10 drops 2 times a day you will see that both diabetes and constipation both are improving .have plenty of water and a cup of milk befor going to bed .

      read the comments on this hub you will see how a lady helped her self to get rid of her chronic constipation --http://hubpages.com/hub/Medicinal-use-of-onion-jui...
