In brief: Treat the cause
Constipation can be caused from poor dietary habits, an undiagnosed or poorly treated thyroid problem, side effect from prescription meds (e.
g. Pain killers, calcium channel blockers), and/or from food allergy/sensitivity (e.g. Wheat/gluten), to name a few! you can try taking fiber and drinking more fluids, but treating underlying cause of problem is better, such as addressing the above mentioned.
