Power Pudding Home Remedy for Chronic Constipation
Q. I have suffered silently from constipation for more than 30 years. Actually, that's not true. Sometimes I cry when the pain is too great.
If I don't use a laxative I can go over two weeks without a bowel movement. I know that relying on chemical stimulants is not healthy so I am counting on you for a more natural approach. Please don't let me down!
A. Nurses have a secret weapon for chronic constipation that they call "Power Pudding." One reader initially complained about the taste: "Putting applesauce, prune juice and wheat bran together seemed awfully unappetizing. I was desperate, so I tried it. Day 1 was a success, but I had no luck on day 2 and lost hope. I tried again on day 3 and got success. I thought, it looks bad, doesn't taste the best but it helps. So I thought I'd just take it daily. After a week, it was working like clockwork. Now Power Pudding is a daily item on my menu and I've started to like it!"
This high-fiber mixture can be effective but it must be taken with plenty of fluid and should be used daily. It doesn't work instantly. For more details about the formula and many other natural approaches, we are sending you our Guides to Constipation and Digestive Disorders.
