    RE: How can I get RELIEF from being constipated all of the time.

    You may well have a high oil/fat/protein diet that does not contain fiber.
    We need fiber to keep our bowels in good working order. You may try adding some fiber gradually to avoid too much gas. Some people chose to eat a high fiber diet. If you do not eat a high fiber diet you may want to add metamucil/wheat germ/ Psyllium to your morning routine. 1 heaping tablespoon of each worked for a friend who had severe constipation most of his life till he discovered that cure. He gagged as he took it every morning but it worked well.
    By the way, he died at the age of 74 and his autopsy said his heart was like a 20 year old.

    RE: How can I get RELIEF from being constipated all of the time.

    It may be a dietary issue. It would probably be wise to consult with your doctor about an elimination diet where you take out possible contributing factors and slowly work them back in. For example, eliminating dairy, gluten, and sugars, then add them back into your diet one at a time. It's the easiest way to figure out what is causing it. It may sound impossible, but you could choose to live with the pain or eliminate/limit your favorite food group in an effort to feel better daily.
    Several family members have done this and feel insanely better.

    Try the "squatty potty" available from Amazon. In places other than the western world, people poop in a squatting position.

    You may want to eat raw vegetables and fruits, such as carrots, cucumbers, jicama, bananas, pears, etc. 5 or more servings a day. One of my friends consume raw jicama regularly and she told me that the problem disappeared.
