I am thinking of trying colonics. They were once a "rage" about overall health but I don't hear about them anymore. Now I am using a rubber glove and lubricant and sometimes it results in a small amount of bleeding.
Colonics aren't a necessary part of our digestive tract. Are you on any medications? If you drink enough water and get fiber, all you should need is a stool softener like colace daily.
They key is usualy in increasing your fiber intake and drinking a lot more liquid. You can not really overdo either one of those. You can try ro experiment with changing those two and see.
I can get constipated because of my meds easily so my doctor prescribed me Docusulate and Sennoside. Saves me from being uncomfortable and all.
Ask the pharmacist they sell it over the counter too.
