    Hello Heidi… It’s good to hear that you are concentrate on home remedies for constipation. Natural or home remedies give long lasting results without any side effects. Supplements or pills give short time relief but they may lead to other health complications. Most of the people are constipated due to lack of fiber and water intake.

    You need to add fiber foods like apple, pine apple, carrot, cabbage, cauliflower, flax seeds, prunes, papaya, whole grains, soy beans, leafy vegetables and fruits to your diet. Omega3 fatty acids which are available in fish, nuts and seeds also help for constipation.

    Drink daily 8 – 10 glasses of water and daily workouts help to avoid constipation. Avoid fast and processed foods. Gluten diet also caused to constipation which is found in wheat, barley and rye.
