Hey - a neat trick for constipation is psyllium husks(I go for the tablets, with plenty of water) - I would really recommend not doing epson salts (from my experience only!) because they just cause diarreah, and even if you take a small amount..it will clear you out, but not encourage your bowels to move again, so you got same problem next day (plus they can make u feel quite sick! And rather a drastic approach (although, as I say, I've tried it- anything once!)...by taking psyllium husks the muscles of the bowels will start, as the fibre is pushed through them, moving everything else. hope that helps! Its a quick and easy approach!
