I'm super constipated and nothing is helping?
Topic: I'm super constipated and nothing is helping?
September 23, 2019 / By Suzie Question:
So I have been constipated for a week, and I have been drinking loads, taking movicol, taking dulcorax, eating flax seeds and fruits like ONLY, I have tried all sorts of suppositories and enemas, and yet nothing works! I went to the doctor 3 days ago and he said the reason enemas dont work is because my poop is stuck high up, and to wait for it to come down, but it isn't!
What do I do?

For constipation, medication is only a very temporary solution if it works.
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.
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.

Originally Answered: helping a horse get use to a new barn?
i would keep all your horses together when you move them, and at the new barn have them all in the same paddock or in stalls next to each other or however the barn is set up, so that they have familiar buddies around. don't ride any of them for a few weeks until they are pretty comfortable, but you can walk them around the property so they can get used to everything and see what's going on.
you can also try putting some valerian in their feed (an herbal remedy that is used to calm the horses down, it really works) and lavender oil helps too. let them sniff it first, and if they react negatively to it then don't use it, otherwise you can put a little on their muzzles to help them relax.
good luck, and i hope this helps!
Don't take any more laxatives. The fast digesting stuff gets stuck behind that hard matter that won't move down the large intestine. There it causes gas, bloating and pain. If you don't get the fecal matter out, it will burst and peritonitis will set in. If you can't reach it, as the doctor said, it has to be breached. My friend had this happen and nearly died and ended up with a colostomy pouch.
At the hospital, they can breach the matter to allow it to pass, and the doctor should have admitted you. Call back. If not return call, go to the ER, tonight.

Try whole grain.cereal, bread and pasta, figs, prunes, olive oil. Boil the figs and drink the fig water after you eat the figs. Drink plenty of water and exercise. If constipation continues get a colonoscopy.

I'd go back to doctor, or try a new doc, or emergency room. If you normally produce a stool daily, you need to address this constipation!

You could be 5 cm's and still need to be induced. Or you could be closed up tight and be in labor within the next few hours. EPO doesn't dilate the cervix it 'might' help to soften it up a little but mother nature knows what she's doing have a little trust and faith in your body that it will do what it needs too when the time is right.
