What to do for constipation?

I was pretty much hooked to herbal laxatives and now I can't take them. I am so bloated and constipated. Nothing worked for me before besides the herbs so what now? I feel terrible.

  • we make a poop cocktail for our residents at the hospital its applesauce and prune juice mixed together
    one of the gals at work took 9 vitamin C tablets then drank 2 strong cups of coffee, it worked for her
    you could try miralax, it has no flavor and is mixed into a drink
    you need fiber lots of it eat an apple or 2 a day
    drink lots of water
