Our expert says:
If your constipation continues I would recommend that you have a medical examination ASAP because you could be suffering from bowel impaction. If this is not the case, I would recommend that you read the articles on constipation by clicking on 'Diet' at the top of this page, and then on 'DietDoc's articles' and read Articles 123 and 124 about healthy colon practices. You will see that to increase dietary fibre intake wholewheat and wheat bran are excellent sources of insoluble dietary fibre, which is the type of fibre that promotes regularity.
