chronic constipation

Posted by Manierob @manierob, Sep 11, 2012

I have had this problem for 20 years. I would like to hear any remedies that have worked for other members. I found a great product{ULTIMATE COLON CARE} from a brochure I received in the mail. It worked great, but, had an ingredient, (LICORICE ROOT), THAT affected my BP. So, I am back to square one. Looking for another great product. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I’m severely constipated too. I’ve been doing 3 or 4 capfuls of miralax and activia with flaxseed oil. It works well for me! Hope this helps!😄

I’m with you. All my life on the constipated side. A few years ago, I was diagnosed with redundant and twisted colon. No surgery as of yet, but it helped explain my constipation. Benefiber works for me. Ease into it. Took me a few months to regulate and get used to it. I currently take 2 tsps in morning coffee or tea, 2 tsps in water during day, then 2 tsps with herbal tea before bed. Also there are blogs in social media for constipation sufferers. Facebook for one. Good luck.

My doctor said I could take a much Phillips Milk of Magnesia as I wanted. So, I take 4 T at bedtime every 2nd or 3rd day. It is cramp free and usually works. Miralax for me causes big time diarrhea, whereas the Phillips does not. Hope this helps.
