I too suffer from chronic constipation. Also diagnosed with IBS. Guess what? My IBS symptoms have all but disappeared since I've been flushing my liver. I am currently exploring options that help me to relieve my bowels at least every other day comfortably. Here's what i have found:
1. Senna tea is a natural, soothing laxative. Bought in health food stores or some organic sections of regular grocery stores, it is a gentle reliever. I drink an 8 oz. cup at night before I go to bed. Natural and soothing and it works.
2. I am currently exploring colonic irrigation and colemas. I bought a colema board ( a 5 gallon enema, basically) and it is SO healing, cleansing, and easy. Also, I am looking into doing colonic therapy on a professional level. This therapy is supposed to relieve chronic constipation.
3. I am flushing my liver using Dr. Hulda Clark 's recipe. Flushing the liver can be a wonderful way of beginning the cleansing process, and with a liver flush, an enema or colema before or after the flush is recommended.
4. I am a supporter of enemas rather than medicines and fiber supplements - enemas are a natural way of hydrocleansing the colon without major side effects.
