Can an apple a day keep constipation away? I think it can!

For several months in the not so distant past I would have a sliced apple (skin on) between 7-8 p.m. and I was regular. Then for whatever reason I stopped and soon began having terrible problems with constipation. I started having my after dinner apple snack again and I've been regular everyday since. Hope this information helps just one person.

Love and hugs, Terri

  • Apples are good. So is coffee and there is evidence coffee is good for PD too. :)

  • Coffee is bad as it has caffeine..not good when we need to lower our adnrenalin levels. Apples are good but organic ..if not skin must be scrubbed or peeled for pesticides.

  • Reading here it seems what works for one does not for another. they say coffee is bad for PD yet I too have read that research has found it is good for PD and for dementia etc.

    I personally drink lots of tea.

    I have two meals of porridge per day with oatbran stirred in that works for me not everyones cup of tea but I like porridge and it works.

    The most fascinating thing is with us Humans is we are all so different.

  • Yes, we are all different. That's why this site is so good. We can share information that may be beneficial to others. :-) :-)

  • HI TERRI THIS IS GOOD NEWS !! I EAT ALOT OF FRUIT - PLUMS ANS CLEMENTINES PEARS AND BANANAS AS WELL AS APPLES BUT HAVE NOT NOTICED A HUGE DIFFERENCE EXCEPT WITH THE PLUMBS - WHICH ARE PRUNES ARE THEY NOT ? XXXX

  • Yes plums help. My neuro says some pwp's find it helpful to take meds with a shot of espresso. I'm seeing a new GI doctor & so far no help with constipation. At least she listens to me.

  • I've heard taking your meds with coffee is good. Sorry you are struggling with the dreaded "C" problem. Good your doc is listening, hoping for the best possible outcome (pardon the pun). :-) :-)

  • One NIH study reported ..."Results of case-control studies and of a prospective investigation in men suggest that consumption of coffee could protect against the risk of Parkinson's disease, but the active constituent is not clear."

  • Dear TL at least she doesn't tell me I'm FOC as 2 'doctors' did & I was in so much pain!

    Dear WW too late for protection :D.

  • Kiwis are terrific, I have 2 kiwis in the morning in the my yogurt and it has continued to work like a charm for months.

  • Thanks,another way to combat this problem. :-)
