  • Keep moving, plenty of water and fiber. When needed add a bit of ground flax seed sesame seed and or chia seed to your cereal. Senna tea can be helpful too.

  • Drink water alot atleast 3 liter per day use green vegetables like spinach and salad leaves

  • Prunes are good, I’ve just started having prunes and they seem to get things moving quickly with no side effects.

  • Eating fruit in fruit juice maybe that will work

  • Bulk up on your beans and also have more grains and hydrate all the time.

  • Water and walking helped me too with staying regular.

  • I like prunes and other natural foods – of course in moderation.

  • Prunes are meant to be great, according to my GP. Whatever you do, don’t take a bunch of Metumucil. Just after my youngest was born, I was so scared of being constipated and ripping my stitches that I took a lot more fibre than it said on the tub. I thought the more the merrier. I ended up with the worst constipation of my life and strained so hard I popped something. Turns out I have a rectocele and need surgery.
