Its a sad day when something so simple as pooping is a fear.

im extremely constipated i know its gross but i dont know what to do.
it leaves me in horrible pain and i have to push i bled the last time that was four days ago. and then the next day i had diarrhea
diarrhea has never been so nice.

Go to your local drugstore, buy a bottle of Magnesium Citrate and drink it down followed by a few glasses of water. Wait a few hours and then voila. If I do this I usually drink the bottle before bedtime and by morning I have results.

Also, taking a stool softener every day may help, I do this just because I dont seem to get as much fiber when Im inducting and it helps move things through much nicer.

Be careful about pushing too hard, you don't want hemorrhoids! Ouch!

when I am seriously low carbing, I absolutely have to eat flax muffins for breakfast every day. otherwise it's just horrible, as you say. and drink a LOT of water with the flax or it just makes things worse!

Look in the recipe room for flax muffin recipes. There are a bunch. Be aware that some people don't have good results with flax.

Magnesium is a good solution for most with the issue. Bulletproof coffee or tea is another one that often works.

Cascara Sagrada....about $5 at Walmart. It promotes Digestive/Colon Health. You can take the capsule or make it into tea. 100 count. I take 1 every other day or so to "go" regularly. I have never done well with the flax or stool softeners.

So, it's "safe" to take it on a continual basis?

I take 2 magnesium every day and never have a problem with that. It's just a matter of finding what works best for your body.

If you have quite a bit of fiber in your diet, be sure to drink extra water to go with it.
