Are you wound tighter than a spring, desperately looking for a constipation remedy that will give you relief quickly, effectively, and more importantly safely?

But I’m getting way ahead of myself.  First you have to identify whether or not you have true constipation symptoms.  Answer the following questions to see where you stand.  

1.    Are your stools hard whether small or large?

2.    Do you strain when having a bowel movement?

3.    Are you producing less than one ounce of stool with each bowel movement?

4.    Do you have bowel movements less than 3 times a week?

5.    Do you go more than two weeks at a time between bowel movements?

Answer yes to any of the questions above could mean that you are experiencing some disruption in your colon.

But don’t worry, constipation is common and most people suffer from constipation pain at some point in their lives.  In short, your bowls are not moving regularly and fail to be completely emptied out when you do go to the bathroom.  

You may not know this but the cause of most disease can be traced back to the digestive system.  Toxins that are not eliminated from the body make their way into your bloodstream and are then carried throughout all sections in the body.  

For example, chronic constipation left untreated can lead to high blood pressure, arthritis, rheumatism, cataract and some cancers.  

It’s time to put to good use a constipation remedy that will give you some relief from the symptoms you’ve been experiencing before it worsens.

To begin with you must take a close look at your diet.  Oddly enough, the foods you eat and the liquids you drink are the number one constipation causes.  

If you live off of fast food, soda, and a diet high in sugar, you are doing great harm to your colon or large intestine.  

The colon needs fiber in order to function properly.  The fiber allows the body to absorb just the right amount of water necessary to make stools soft and easy to pass.  

When the colon is in trouble, it takes on too much water leaving the fecal matter hard and dry.  

So the best place to start is to drink plenty of water.  Eat your fruits and vegetables and get plenty of exercise.  

Here are three foolproof constipation home remedies that you can use to help your digestive system work well:

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM):  An essential structural mineral that is both natural and organic sulphur.  Its main job is to reduce inflammation and to soothe the mucous membrane that lines the GI tract.

Garlic (Raw or Tablet Form):  Garlic aids in reducing inflammation of the GI tract as well as soothes and cleanses your system.  The potassium that garlic is rich in strengthens your muscles in your intestines.  If you place several cloves of raw garlic in a salad will give your excellent results fast.

You can dice some garlic and add it to some soup or take two tablets once or twice daily.  

Licorice:  Licorice acts a stool softener.  On top of that, an easy recipe is to simply add some tea and have a cup right before eating.  

So let me summarize and review…just the right constipation remedy will give you relief almost immediately.  Believe it or not, from MSM and garlic to licorice you can bring your digestive system into balance in no time at all.
