Home Made Treatment on Constipation

  1. Orange and Warm Water: squeeze out your orange juice in a cup then add warm or hot water. This is my best method and it works like magic within five (5) minutes  
  2.  Warm Water and Oil: In case there is no orange in the house and you need an emergency treatment, you can use this it works perfectly fine within the space of Ten (10) - Fifteen (15) minutes.
  3. Water: In case you dont have oil water too helps but in this case you need to take enough water, is not favourable for me  because I dont know how to drink much water and it takes a longer time.

Other things things you can do so as to prevent constipation from occurring in future is taking enough fiber from foods such as tiger nut, vegetables e.t.c, drink enough water daily, avoid hard pain relieving medicine unless when prescribed and such medicine should be taken with "Gestid", Regular exercise also helps.
