If you suffer from constipation click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'DietDoc's articles' and read Articles 123 and 124 about healthy colon practices and what to eat to keep your colon healthy. Increasing your dietary fibre content and taking probiotics ('good' microorganisms), drinking 2-3 glasses of extra water per day (not too much), and doing some exercise should relieve the constipation. If you have tried all these tips and you remain constipated, then Please see a medical dr because you may suffer from an underlying condition such as compaction that may need medical treatment.
