  • Have you tried activia yogurt. Try having two a day with some flax seeds mixed into it. 

  • Caution,flax seeds can increase pain and wind

    Take spoon of olive oil before meals

  • I have the same problem. The best natural thing to take for constipation is magnesium citrate capsules or oxide capsules. I take about 600 to 800 mg every night before bed with lots of water. You can find a lot of information on the internet about magnesium and constipation. There is a site called Ibs tales which has a lot of information.

  • thank you somuch for the info will give it a try
