Buy a one pound bag of baby carrots, and eat them- raw. Drink several glasses of filtered water. You'll feel better in a couple of hours. In the future, consume at least two cups of raw fruits and vegetables every day. You'll never have this problem again.

My son eats Nutramigen (Enfamils Alimentum) and takes prevacid and backlefan for acid reflux. We used Alimentum but we had constipation issues like you. At first I blamed the acid reflux meds but after consulting his GI doctor I found out that alimentum has a higher precentage of iron in it then nutramigen. Iron causes constipation. Before making anymore switches (since he has weight gain issues) give him some time to get used to the formula/prevacid. Also, have you tried putting a table spoon of oatmeal baby cearel in his bottles? It will loosen bowel movments and help reflux.

Go for soluble as well as insoluble fiber and lots of fluids, especially water.Fiber and some forms of starch are fermented in the large bowel and provide the bulk that helps to stimulate the muscles of the colon in order to facilitate the digested food through the gut. Oat bran, pulses and most fruits (Bael, apples, figs, pears, bananas, pinneaple) and vegetables (leafy vegetables like spinach, cabbage, carrots, cluster beans) contain lot of soluble fiber. Insoluble fiber is mainly found in rice, bran, strawberries and nuts. Both type are found in wheat, bran, whole grains, (whole meal pasta and whole meal bread) and dried fruits. Other rich sources of fiber include green peas, popcorn and prunes. Beware of the chemical laxatives extensively advertised and available in the pharmacies. They are habit forming and make your colon so lazy that your bowels won’t come unless you use them. There are many natural laxative and holistic treatments that can help treat symptoms of constipation and promote easier digestion, without the side effects commonly associated with OTC or prescription drugs. Natural laxative treatments that include herbal and homeopathic remedies can restore balance and regularity to the digestive system and bowel. Nourishing herbs such as Aloe Ferox, Taraxacum officinale (Dandelion), and Passiflora incarnata have natural laxative properties and also act as a tonic for the liver. Other herbs that may also have a beneficial effect on the digestive system are Psyllium, a natural bulk forming laxative and Cascara and Senna to stimulate bowel movements. Remember to source your natural remedies from reputable companies to ensure maximum effectiveness and safety. A lot of other dos and don'ts as well as helpful dietary habits exist for constipation. you ought to check this link out for that..

Go to the grocery or health food store. Buy a tea called 'Smooth Move'. Read the directions & consume. :) From now on, drink plenty of water and eat wholesome, healthy foods. Raw veggies and whole grains would be best.

For constipation olive oil often helps. If a table spoon of olive oil doesn't help perhaps you could keep increasing the amount. For constipation, medication is only a very temporary solution if it works. Often you get side effects. Wheat germ and wheat bran are very high fiber foods that often help for constipation. Constipation can cause anal fissures, hemorrhoids and also some far more serious problems as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22r... . You probably need to improve your diet as you seem to have a constipation problem. For constipation, castor oil is very good for a one-off remedy as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22c... but it is unsuitable for regular use. For constipation, suppositories, laxatives, fiber supplements and enemas are all totally unnecessary if you eat the right foods and avoid the wrong foods. All fruit and vegetables in very large amounts are laxative. You need to permanently change your diet or you are likely to get colon cancer. Constipation can make you extremely unwell and can lead to colon cancer as it causes a build up of carcinogenic toxins in the system. The intake of foods such as milk, cheese, white rice, white flour and red meat should be restricted, because they tend to contribute to constipation. Any food that has had the fiber stripped out, the nutrients processed out or slows down the digestion is a constipation culprit. Here's a list of foods shown to cause constipation problems: •Meats, especially fatty meats, red meat and processed meats, •Dairy Products, such as cheese, ice cream and whole milk, •Fast Foods – burgers, French fries and other fried foods, pizza, etc., •Refined grains, like white rice or any refined white flour products, •Highly starchy foods – white potatoes, corn and all refined grains, •Pastries and other high sugar products, such as cakes, cookies and pies, •Deep-fried foods, chips and other foods that are high in bad fats. You can see lots more in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22n... which tells you "Natural Ways to Relieve Constipation" and the right foods to eat.
