Why am I constipated all the time?!?

Why am I constipated all the time?!? Topic: Why am I constipated all the time?!?
May 22, 2019 / By Helaine
Question: It's so f***ing frustrating. I'm constipated all the time. And it's not like I'm not doing anything about it. I eat "Bob's Red Mill Organic High Fiber Hot Cereal with Flaxseed" every day. And even though it's not the most delicious food ever, I still consume it. And I consume three servings of this stuff (30g of fiber-which is the required daily amount), and I'm still constipated. To top it off, I drink a lot of water. So much so that my urine is not only clear, but I end up having to go to the bathroom very often. And if that weren't enough, I take 2 tablespoons of Metamucil about 30 minutes before or after I consume the hot fiber cereal, to help bulk up my stool and I'm still constipated. I look at my stool and it has a dull color, it's not as colorful as I'd like it to be. And the texture of my stool isn't as smooth. This tells me that something's up. I need help! It takes months to get an appointment with the doctor and they charge a lot of money. I don't have insurance.

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 and enemas are all totally unnecessary if you eat the right 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.

Drew Originally Answered: I am constipated all the time. I ordered a bottle of senna leaf. Is it safe to take everyday?
Senna is great and it's safe to use everyday, just follow the directions on the bottle. Another awesome thing is Flax seed. Buy just the seed's, you should be able to find them everywhere and grind them in your blender. It's much cheaper than buying them already ground up. Start by taking 2 teaspoons in the morning and evening and work up to 1 1/2 tablespoons in the morning and evening. If you find you have a lot of gas or the runs, then cut back a little, by a teaspoon or so and see if that helps, when you find that your body is adjusting to it, then add a teaspoon. Flax seed is loaded with fiber and other omega 3's and is great for you. To me, it tastes like nuts...it won't dissolve but I like taking it with juice. Other things to consider or look into are digestive enzymes and probiotics (natural good bacteria), these things are great for your intestines and help digestion. http://www.jonbarron.org/ When you get on this website, go to the top and enter these things in his search and you will find articles and he has a product line as well, if your interested.

I had the same problem... Was eating fibre cereals and drinking water. I used to cry going to the toilet it was so bad.... I was so constipated I'd take a panic attack lol... When I was like two years old I ended up in hospital because of it... The reason for me and probably is for you if you're eating fibre is that it's genetic. I went to my doctors and he prescribed me like a powder thing to dissolve into water and yeah it was gross... But I do not care... Ever since I took that stuff I have not been constipated since!!!! I can eat what I want, don't have to worry about high fibre cereals and I after using it for about half a year, I only have to take this stuff like twice a week!! Go to your doctor and get this stuff!! IT'S AWESOME HAHA

There are several kinds of laxatives, each with its own benefits and risks. IMPORTANT: Particularly since your husband has gotten no relief with a reputable laxative, it is possible that he has an impaction, or even a bowel obstruction. IF HE DOES, and he takes additional laxatives, particularly stimulant laxatives (such as ducolax) he could cause himself severe pain and very possibly a rupture of the small bowel. If this is still a problem for him, he should seek a doctor's advice before taking any more laxatives, or any other kind of laxatives. And stay away from other medications and drugs, and "folk-cures" as well, until a doctor has advised him it is alright to use them. Good luck & let me know how it works out for you!

In the superstore, fruits are usually selected much too soon. Some are rocks, many are bitter. Some of the fruit and vegetables are typical right (zucchini, onions, garlic, lettuce, greens, and a few others) so I'd have to go with vegetables.

talk to your doctor if it bothers you. it's better to talk with doc and have nothing be wrong than not talk and have something be wrong and not know it.

Shay Originally Answered: How do space-time warping and fabric of space-time explain gravity?
I see your confusion. Its a stretch from every day reality. My guess is that the problem is that you are thinking of space time itself has having a 3 dimensional movement. Of course if you exist within space you can move in three dimensions but outside of space (Which is impossible to phatom) movement up and down is not related to what you think as up and down. The analogy between a real fabric and spacetime (to my understanding) is that if a mass exist on the fabric (Within space time ) then the fabric will contort so that other masses on the fabric will moves towards the center. The analogy can only go so far because space time will not curve down like a piece of cloth....it will curve toward the massive object. Anything traveling in space will therefore be unable to travel in a straight line...a straight line will be redefined to mean a curved path to which an ending point exist in the center of the mass itself. Also keep in mind that in theory all objects with mass...even an atom will create curved space time (Much smaller curve of course). The fabric analogy shows this in action...the smaller the mass in the center of the fabric the smaller the slope of the sides. With the two bowls you are assuming that the source of the gravity is from underneath the bowl, but it is not...it is from the planet in the center. Therefore a better representation with two bowls would be if you have the bottom of both bowls touching and the planet holding them together. Commenting on your addition: Yeah, I see your point. I think he knew it to be a very loose analogy but it drove home the main point of a mass causing a warping of space. The proof that space warps is very mathematical and deal with general relativity. In order to understand (Not claiming that I understand it) is to learn general relativity, but before you learn GE youll have to learn another form of math called differential geometry. An experimental proof is seeing the affects of light bending around planets. Another would be seeing the blackness of a black hole
