First and foremost, we must include fiber in our list of foods that relieve constipation. In the US, the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of fiber is 25 grams.
Besides fiber, it is necessary to have enough water in your system to help move it through your digestive system, which is about eight 12 ounce glasses of water daily.
Physicians are finding that the more fiber rich food is eaten, diseases such as hemorrhoids, appendicitis, colitis causing ulcers and constipation tend to disappear.
Dr. Emanuel Cheraskin of the University of Alabama Dental School and author of 13 books on diet and disease, says that a high fiber diet will help prevent:
Everyone thinks of bran when fiber is mentioned, but we need to
add wheat germ to the bran, if you already have a sick colon. If you are wheat sensitive (as I am), you need to look at alternate flours. In the health food stores, you can find oat flour that does not contain wheat.
Wheat germ which is also high in fiber has Vitamin E oils in it which will lubricate the bran so you don't have to worry about bran bulking clogging in your intestines.
If 25 grams of fiber is the daily recommended amount, you can have that for your breakfast. All you have to eat is:
All these foods have fiber and will keep your colon healthy! But if your colon is sick, weakened or diseased you have to take special precautions and eat only specific diets.
For example, if you are eating a protein drink for breakfast, coffee and a doughnut for a snack, soft bread and cheese for lunch and a small salad with potato and meat, then cakes and cookies for dessert - you are not eating enough fiber. Besides the majority of these foods cause constipation.
A 100% natural healing laxative is Casgara Sagrada It is a medicinal plant that is used in the treatment of chronic or occasional constipation. It increases the peristaltic action of the colon and produces a semi-solid stool in about 6 to 12 hours.

Mix 3 tablespoons of bran, and 3 tablespoons of raw or toasted wheat germ, carry it in a small container with you, then you can add this to whatever you eat - soup, cereal, salad and even a beef burger. This will give you the amount of fiber you need daily.
