    An all natural way of handling the issue is to include apples, prunes or prune juice to help get things moving. :)

    I take either linzess pill, or lactalose solution for constipation works great and I had it very bad from taking many medications.

    A cleansing tea (preferably something that contains senna ). The senna leaves and the fruit of the plant are used to make medicine. Senna is an FDA approved nonprescription laxative. It is used to treat constipation and also to clear the bowel before diagnostic tests such as colonoscopy. ... The fruit from senna seems to be gentler than the leaf. It's always recommended to check with your doctor before you try something new though. I hope this helps!
