In brief: Fiber,herbs&exercise

Even here in america i've found no better remedy than the classic ayurvedic tonic triphala.
A diet rich in fiber from fruits & vegetables is important. Fiber supplements like psyllium can help. Exercise helps. Constipation can be caused by low thyroid. Imbalances of GI flora & magnesium deficiency. Acupressure can provide acute relief- see http://www.Herbalshop.Com/acupressure/acupressure_16.Html.
