Eat well 

The traditional dietary advice for treating constipation is to increase the amount of bulk or roughage in the diet.  This means:   

  • Increasing the amount of cereal fibre.    

  • Eating a bowl of oats with dried fruits (esp prunes and apricots) every morning.

  • Sprinkling linseed onto your cereal

  • Eat more fruit and vegetables.  Prunes and beetroot are particularly good at loosening the stool.
