There are many causes for constipation and there are many treatments There is smooth move tea, and there is triphala. There is magnesium oxide at bedtime. There is psyllium seed ingestion.
One remedy that an older woman told me about is prunes. I know about prunes I told her. She said- “ Not this remedy- I use licorice soaked prunes or figs “ She told me her remedy which intrigued me. She uses
1/2 teaspoon of licorice root
2. 1/2 cup of water
3 stewed prunes or 3 stewed figs
Makes the tea by simmering licorice in water for a couple of minutes. Removes from heat and let it steep for 15 minutes Strain and soak fruit for at least 2-3 hours. Eat slightly cold or warmed
It will work ( she assured me )
