INSTRUCTIONS: When my daughter was about a year old, she would have bouts of constipation. Her doctor recommended fig newtons. It works on the same premise as dates or raisins. And of course a little apple juice works as well.

INGREDIENTS: "Romano Black Sambuca" or black liquorish
INSTRUCTIONS: For preventative measures, drink a shot of "Romano Black Sambuca" on occasion (once or twice a week is sufficient, unless you really
like the stuff). If you are already stopped up, drink a couple shots before bed, it will take care of it by the next morning.
If you cannot drink alcohol, anything with black liquorish is also effective.

INSTRUCTIONS: As I've grown past my prime, Iï¿1⁄2m not nearly as active as I once had been. My eating habits remain the same, which I have
discovered includes little to no fiber. For the past 5 years or so I have had major irregularity. In a search for a quick fix my wife discover:FIBER ONE (General Mill)
It provides 56% of recommend fiber in one serving. Itï¿1⁄2s expensive ($4-5 a box) but much better than fiber drinks. I like the honey clusters w/ a little sugar.Two bowls a day, 4-6 glasses of water and some good reading material is all you need.

Once a month or every 2 weeks.Eating fiber (like all bran, prune, cereals etc) regularly, doing some physical exercise, drinking regularly apple cider vinegar (1 or 2 teaspoon a day) are the best preventions against constipation.

Thank you,

Ingredients: Cheerios and/or 100% juice (apple or white grape)
Instructions: This sounds so lame, but a daily bowl of Cheerios (the ones in the yellow box) will add enuff fiber to help reduce constipation. Also a daily glass of 100% juice, apple or white grape seem to be better, will regulate bowel movements. This works for small children as well. Cheerios and juice are some of the 1st foods for babies. I ate the
cereal every day during my pregnancy and I still give my daughter a juice box everyday...she is now 5 and has now bowel problems. It seems in the hustle and bustle we forget the fiber we need. This is a cheap and easy way to stay regular. :)

Name of Remedy: Constipation of a baby or toddler
Ingredients: Warm water, dish washing liquid, ky jelly, and a medicine
syringe or dropper.
Instructions: Place a small amount(just enuff to make it soapy) of the dish washing liquid into a bowl of water and draw it into the syringe as if it were medicine. Lubricate the rectum and insert the warm water solution. Make sure the water is not too hot (after all you don't want to burn the baby). This will soften the child's stools and enable them to have a bowel movement. Repeat as necessary. I did this to my own daughter until she was able to have suppositorys safely.

Ingredients: 1/3 to 1 cup of walnuts
6 to 8-oz glass of water
Instructions: I've worked in Home Health Care profession for almost 20 yrs., so I know this works. For normal constipation, just a small amount of walnuts (1/3 to 1/2 cup) chopped and eaten in cereal or if a person doesn't like the taste of walnuts or cannot chew them, run them through the blender and pulverize them, sprinkling them in something you can swallow. You will have a normal cramp-free bowel movement within 4 to 6 hrs.For bowel impaction, eat a whole cup of walnuts and drink a glass of water, whether alone or sprinkled in food. I had an impacted bowel one time and had tried Fleet enemas, stool softeners and several different laxatives. Nothing worked and I was on the verge of having to go to the hospital, possibly to undergo surgery. Then I remembered the walnuts. They liquified the problem and I was fine other than being a little sore for a few days.

Name of Remedy: Infant Constipation
Ingredients: Pacifier or bottle of nursery water & Karo syrup.
Instructions: Dip the pacifier or nipple of bottle in a capful of Karo syrup. The pleasant sweetness will molify your baby while he/she works his/her frustration out on the nipple - not your nerves! =) Beware of using more than a dip - you may cause Montezuma's Revenge! It generally takes a couple of hours but a baby's digestive track is short so it won't take too long. Hang in there, both of you!
