Prince Charles claims that it cost The UK NHS £100 million each year to treat patients with constipation.

Yes I was once treated for constipation it was very painful experience my treatment was a bottle of Lactulose.  The Doctor said I quote

"You are constipated, right up to the eye balls"  I felt so embarrass because I was on the high fibre diet I just did not drink enough fluids  and all that crap was stuck in my bowels.

Two teaspoon of that glastly Lactulose medicine did the trick.  I never been constipated since!  All my workmates got to heard about

Battling constipation? 10 foods that can help you, uh, ease the pain.

Constipation can be painful, leave your gut feeling bloated and just get in the way of a normal work day. They say when you gotta go, you gotta go, but sometimes your body won't let you.

An average healthy adult should consume at least 26 grams of fibre -- ideally 26 to 35 grams daily, according to Health Canada's guidelines.

But to avoid bloating and cramping, you shouldn't suddenly add 30 grams of fibre to your plate, according to EverydayHealth.com. Instead, eating smaller portions daily and balancing your diet with fluids are all ways to get your digestive system back to where it should be.

But what causes constipation? Obvious reasons include low fibre diets, repeatedly holding it in, not drinking fluids, or a lack of exercise, but some other reasons can include taking specific medications and other medical conditions, according to Health.com.

Prunes

One of the most common home remedies for constipation are dried prunes and also taste great as a juice.

  • Pears

    Pears are considered to be a natural laxatives and can ease the movement of stool through the intestines. 

  • Broccoli

    Most of us know that broccoli has an endless list of health

  • Flaxseeds

    Flaxseeds (not in oil form) is another natural way to make you go. Flax is full of fibre and is rich  omega-3 fatty acids.

  • Carrots

    Carrots alone won't make you go to the bathroom. Full of fibre, raw carrots that are part of a healthy diet

  • Beans

    "Beans, beans, the musical fruit. The more you eat, the more you toot."

  • Peaches

    Eaten both dried or fresh, peaches are not only in season, but are also packed with fibre.

  • Pineapple

    You've heard it and its true. Pineapple juice is a great way to regulate your digestive system.

  • Fig

    Another great source of fibre, figs can make your stool softer for easier digestion.

  • Whole Grains

    Opting for whole grain breads, oatmeal and bran cereal are easy ways to fill your body up with fibre.
