People suffering from chronic constipation must pay more attention to their diet by removing junk food. You should eat foods rich in magnesium, nuts, seeds, fish, greens, at least that’s what my phytotherapist said to my mother when she went to visit him. And he recommended her one great remedy to combat constipation which worked as magic.

Plums are great, too, to regulate your bowel movement. You have to leave them to soak overnight in cold water with 1 tablespoon of honey. The proportion is: 4 plums to 1 cup water. The next morning you have to drink the water and to eat the soaked plums.
