Constipation help me!?
Topic: Constipation help me!?
October 15, 2019 / By Melia Question:
This is kinda gross. So I'm constipated. Normally when I am I take this one chocolate laxative. It works, but I'm on vacation and we can't take the car anywhere because we are in a big city and it will take an our to get to a target or something. The nearest store is closed down due to a power outage. So I can't go buy anything. My friend said she has some stuff, but idk if it will work. I need to be cleaned out by tomorrow because I have a dance competition. I have the urge to poop, but it hurts to much. Sorry for tmi but... Yeah. Please help me!

Medication is only a very temporary solution for constipation, 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: Juice for constipation.hypoallergenic formula, does that help relief constipation?
My daughter has sometimes issues with constipation and has ahd so eversince she started eating solids.
I don't know how old your daughter is, but if she is old enough to drink juice you could try grape juice. That helps fairly well. What helps even better is prune juice. Or if she is already eating solids: Prunes. If you let them soak in water the get really soft, too. My daughter who is now 19 months actually loves soft prunes.
What also helps to trigger a bowel movement especially in a younger baby is to massage the sides of their feet starting from the back of the heel rubbing slowly but firmly towards the little toe. It used to be that this was all I needed to do for a few times in the morning and by noon my daughter would have a bm.
I also read that if you go two fingers width below the navel and massage gently but with a little pressure it also helps them to have a bm.
Then there is the possibility to stimulate a bm by inserting carefully the tip of a cotton bud dipped in olive oil - I haven't tried that yet though, but that was what my pediatrician recommended.
In severe cases, when my daughter is so constipated that she is in pain when she has to poop, I give her a glycerine suppository. But that should really only be done if necessary because the bowel can be become dependent on laxatives. And you should talk to your doctor to see if your daughter is old enough for them and have them prescribed.
For the future you have to see that she gets enough fluid and if she is eating solids already, that she gets enough fiber.
Find something bitter, such as coffee, and hold it in your mouth, so say you have a cup of coffee, take each mouthful and hold it for about two minutes before swallowing. Drink plenty of water. Practice Yoga positions which twist or massage the abdomen, such as the Cobra, the locust and the Yoga position itself. Massage your own abdomen in a circle moving from the right upwards, across the top and sideways and downwards. Try finding sweets high in mannitol. Psyllium is another option. Also, try plavini: take a deep breath and exhale downwards, emptying your lungs into your stomach as if you're trying to make yourself burp, three times at ten minute intervals, on an empty stomach while lying on your left hand side. Avoid stimulating laxatives in future.

If you're in a city, I'm sure there is a pharmacy in the area. Once the power returns, go buy an enema bag and you should have relief in about 20minutes. Best of luck with the constipation and the dance competition.

I don't want to sound gross but I'm pretty sure we're past that level... Well eating fruit makes me poop for starters. Also I just found a website that said coconut water, beans, or nuts can be natural laxatives. Best of luck dude

In spite of the resident spammer's advice, why not wait on the ER a bit. The cure involves lots of lube, long rubber gloves, a good sized basin and a very unhappy nurse or two. Get some Miralax. Begin with one dose in the AM. Drinking enough water with it is critical. Then take a second capful, again with lots of water in the PM. If there is no joy in the morning, take another capful with water. So that's 2 doses in the morning. If during the day there is still no luck, take 2 doses in the PM. Each day increase a dose until the mail begins to move again. And pound the water in between and stick with soups and relatively soft foods with lots of water.
This is straight from the GI doctor to me to you, so don't klet someone freak out in an answer telling you that's too much. They will not have to have the surgery for the bowel obstruction, you will. And your movement may be watery loose for a while afterwards, but things will solidify over time and once you get closer to normal, consider a daily dose to keep things moving.
Trust me you don't want to see the nurses greased up to the shoulders coming at you with a bucket. Not dignified at all.
