  • constipation treatment and problems for seniors

    The better-educated person can make the correct decision on use of laxatives, purgatives and fiber—don't use them. For most people, dietary and lifestyle improvements can lessen the chances of constipation and no actual constipation treatments are necessary.
    Drinking plenty of fluids, preferably water, helps stimulate intestinal activity. Drinking a glass of prune juice daily or eating prunes may help with bowel regulation. Prune juice has almost no fiber, but does have a laxative effect, probably on account of its content of magnesium salts. Prunes are relatively high in fiber (2 Grams)
