Constipation is often due to an unhealthy diet with insufficient fiber. Most people don't eat enough fiber. Wheat germ, wheat bran, Chia seeds and Psyllium husks are very high fiber foods and there is also a lot of fiber in fruit and vegetables. Both constipation and IBS as well as diarrhea can be cured with liquid chlorophyll as in a web search for "liquid chlorophyll" + constipation + ibs. Other natural ways to relieve constipation are covered in a web search for "natural ways to relieve constipation".

I used to have infrequent bowel movement as well, but now I had once and sometimes twice a day, ever since I started to eat wholegrain rye breads (I always look for the one with most fiber on it), green beans, and lots of water. Yogurts and papaya sometimes helps too. Also, I read somewhere that caffeinated stuff are dehydrating so you will have to drink extra water for every coffee you drink. The supermarkets are selling fiber supplements as well, although I haven't tried it since the wholegrain breads contain lots of insoluble fiber and the beans contain a lot of soluble fiber already. Hope this helps!

Why don't you want to take the laxatives any more Prunes are the best, and powder mixes like "Metamucil" are great in normal conditions, but for now, please take the laxatives. A week is way too long and the next stop could be the emergency room, if even enemas can't help

Never ever be constipated for such a long time. Make sure you go to the bathroom a lot, take another laxative to get all that old crap out of there. It is little wonder that you have stomach cramps...... Please, keep an eye and make sure you go every 2nd day, by the 3rd day take prune juice or a laxative. If you have this problem often, try drinking a small glass of prune juice early in the morning. If you're taking a laxative, take a herbal one.

prune juice next time. don't take pills and stuff with longterm issues. just a few glasses of ice cube prune juice (tastes good) and after 30-40 mins your body will tell you to go. does the trick for me cause i only poop once or twice a week.

You need more fiber in your diet. I know this sounds like something for old people but, Metamucil is a good way to get fiber in your diet. Put some in a glass of water every morning and that should keep you regular without getting the diarrhea. If you eat a lot of fast food, stop. You need more vegetables and whole grains in your diet. Increase the amount of water that you drink to about 6-8 glasses a day. Sometimes if you are on certain medicines this will also cause constipation. If that's the case tell your doctor and he can give you something to help. Walking everyday is also a very good idea. Another thing is do not strain to have a bowel movement. You are only aggravating your hemorrhoids. Take the stool softener every day if the Metamucil doesn't help. This should make you feel better and regulate your bowel movements.
