When I was at my new pain doctors appointment we talked about the problems that come with pain medications.....constipation. How to prevent it and if you can't prevent it how to fix it without going to the drug store. This was the information she gave me. Start out your morning with taking a tablespoon of coconut oil, doesn't have to be the expensive brand just pure coconut oil. She puts it in her coffee but talked about putting it in cocoa, teas if you are doing backing instead of the regular oil use coconut oil. There are so many other benefits that come with coconut oil but this is about constipation. Everyday drink a glass of real coconut water,not that Sobe is bad water it just isn't "real" coconut water. When you bake and it asks for corn syrup use dark corn syrup. Making bake beans with molasses helps with the molasses. If you are having trouble and like to bake make yourself a batch of molasses cookies. If you use coconut oil in place of the regular oil that will give you an extra boost. If the recipe asks for brown sugar get the darkest brown sugar as that too will help. Want something to drink that is warm heat up some milk and add a tablespoon of molasses or coconut oil will help you for your nightly dream land. If you are already constipated melt a tablespoon of butter and heat up a glass of prune juice combined them and there is a drink you can drink every few hours. Drinking a glass of prune juice a day can help you out a lot. When it comes to prunes one serving consists of 4 prunes. I have changed raisins in my oatmeal cookies to cut up pieces of prunes and my kids only noticed the hint of the coconut oil that I used. I read a research article about water and they said the first thing you should do is get an 8 ounce glass of water to help wake up your body but to also help your digestive system wake up too. I hope this helps you out in some way and I look forward to reading other people's solution to the problem we all have to deal with while dealing with our Chronic Pain.
