Constipated since Friday?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I haven't had a bowel movement since Friday morning.

What do I do?

I took a stimulant laxative as I asked this question, out of desperation. Sometimes when you feel like you're dieing (like I do now) you will do anything. PLEASE KILL ME :'( I AM SUFFERING!!

Paul, I feel our pain. Magnesium does not help me anymore - even though I take very high dosages. I hope you will find the answer to your question because I need to know too.

Carrots, ginger, and the sauna always do it for me.

I also suggest natural calm, also if this happens often, you could track your food and your bowel movements to discover the culprit.

It also helps to drink hot water with each meal to help digestion from the beginning so it doesn't get stuck in the end!

Something you could also do, only out of desperation though, is eat multiple spoonfuls of coconut oil or another fat all at once. That gets things moving pretty quickly!

Oh, you can also massage your abdominal area frequently and don't lie down bunched up when you sleep. For some reason this has helped me!

I hope you can use one or more of these tips! Good luck!

Go buy yourself some Natural Vitality "Calm" magnesium powder (mixes into a drink). Drink it in the evenings. It will get things moving and prevent this from happening again. You can find it at Whole Foods, or order online (here's one on Amazon: http://amzn.com/B000GJOZWE). They also have a raspberry lemon or orange flavor.

If things move too quickly, scale back down to a lesser dose. Find the amount that keeps you regular but not too much.

More immediately, you could try an enema. Google "enema for constipation." You need a hot water bottle kit with the tubing; most 24-hr pharmacies will have it (Walgreens, CVS, etc).
