Constipation is often due to an unhealthy diet with insufficient fiber.
Most people don't eat enough fiber.
Wheat germ, wheat bran and Chia seeds are very high fiber foods and there is also a lot of fiber in fruit and vegetables.
Both constipation and IBS can be cured with liquid chlorophyll as in http://au.search.yahoo.com/search?p=%22l...
Wow this sounds awful! I am so sorry...
The best way to resolve constipation is to figure out why you are constipated. Consider the following.
Diseases can cause constipation. Check the symptoms on Diverticulitis, or Anemia and see if either match up to what's going on with you. If so, you need to see a doctor for treatment.
Less serious causes are...
-Lack of Exercise
-Insufficient dietary fiber
-Overuse of Laxatives
Best way to fix constipation is to start increasing dietary fiber and drink lots of water (a gallon a day). Fiber can be found naturally in fresh produce... best ones for constipation are apples, pears, prunes, rhubarb, beets, leafy greens, leeks, and onions. Some other foods that may help are flax seeds, legumes, molasses, nuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and yogurt with active bacterial cultures. You'll want to avoid any refined foods for a while, sugar, fried, salty, and processed foods will irritate you and keep you constipated.
If you aren't getting exercise try walking a mile a day, or more if you're up to it.
Try drinking a glass of apple juice the first thing every morning before breakfast. If you are uncomfortable, take a warm water enema.
You gotta eat food like smashed potatoes , soups. I remember when i got my appendiz surgery my **** was hard as a rock. I ate those kind of liquid foods. (yogurt,smashed potato, soups) and my **** was like liquid. This may help you and dont forget to drink water.
Originally Answered: Is my dog constipated.or is it something else?
Is she drinking enough water? Whenever the body starts to get depleted of fluids, it starts trying to conserve it and will, thus, send less of it into the intestines to mix with the feces and make it soft. If she isnt drinking much, try giving her low-sodium broth (chicken or beef). If she'll drink that, it will be sufficient enough water for now. Also, as someone already suggested, give her a couple tablespoons of mineral oil by mouth (good luck!) and, if you have an eye dropper, GENTLY give her an eye dropper full of mineral oil up her rear end. The "skin tenting test", where you pinch the skin on her shoulders to see if it springs back, is NOT an accurate (or even near-accurate) way to test for dehydration. Only blood work can verify that. By the time the skin no longer springs back, the dog is severely dehydrated. As for the pumpkin, keep trying it but if it isnt working, go to plan B. Try the mineral oil. Do not give her any bowel stimulants. Since she's already trying to pass bricks, stimulating her bowels to do it faster will only make it worse. Stool softeners only!!
