Constipation

  • Aromatherapy: massage abdomen in a clockwise direction with orange, black pepper, ginger, or marjoram mixed in a carrier oil

  • Exercise: especially activities that work the abdominal muscles such as rowing, swimming, walking, or sit-ups

  • Herbs: dandelion root, chicory root, angelica root (20–30 drops of extract in a small glass of water three times a day), cascara sagrada, senna; psyllium—only use for several days, long-term use can be damaging

  • Homeopathy: bryonia (wild hops) or nux vomica—1 tablet 3 times daily—maximum 1 week

  • Drink 6–8 glasses of water daily

  • Yoga: twisting postures and forward bends are often helpful
