Hello Rose, Coconut oil helps relieve constipation, start with a small amount, if he gets on ok with this, and for very bad constipation try up to one tablespoon of coconut oil. Lemon-juice helps relieve stomach gas and is great at neutralizing stomach acid, Consider a Gluten-Free diet, Senna helps relieve constipation, Make sure he has soluble and insoluble fiber in his diet, The Coconut oil will all so help with autism, the human brain loves coconut oil and cod liver oil and Magnesium and Avocado. All the Best.

Dear Kamal
I think you may try the following Herbs.
1. Take a half teaspoon of Ashwagandha powder with warm water. Take it for 15 days.
2. Have 2 glasses of warm water every morning.
3. Take 2 teaspoons cascara sagrada mother tincture. You may get it from a Homeopathy Shop. Take 10 drops 2 times in a day for 15 days.
4. Have 2 glasses of Lemon water in a day.

Dear Sorioj Roy
You are taking too much allopathy medicines.
We can only suggest you Metformin, have 1 tablet every day for 1 month.
To set your Kidneys right, take the following Herbs.
1. Buy Land Caltrops capsule and take every day for 1 month.
2. Buy Punarnava extract ( Boerhavia Diffusa ) and take 10 drops 2 times in a day. It is also available in powdered form. Take 1 tablespoon of powder with a glass of water.
3. Have a fresh shot of Wheat Grass juice daily.
4. Buy Varuna ( Crateava Nurvala ) capsule and take 1 every day. We also suggest you to please go for regular exercise and detoxify your body.
Try to reduce your allopathy remedies.

First of all, I thank you for your kind service and your prompt, detailed responses.
I suffer from a mild form of Crohn's disease. It caused ulcers and inflammation in the ileo-cecal area. Even though the disease was mild it went undetected for 8 years and caused me to have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, fungal overgrowth as well as adrenal insufficiency. All these were corrected with allopathy as well as herbal medications. Most of my symptoms have been corrected but I have severe constipation. I took Senna powder for about 15 months with good results but I stopped that in late Jan 2017 on the advice of a friend who said Senna is not good for IBD. I started taking triphala tablets and magnesium tablets instead but my stool is very hard and I have incomplete evacuation of bowels. This causes gas, discomfort and hemorrhoids. I am very careful of the fiber in my diet, amount of water (8-10 glasses at least) and exercise (walk and yoga) in my daily routine. A few days ago, I started taking Vaishvanara churna (1 tsp twice daily with buttermilk). But have not had much success. I do not take any wheat and avoid milk and yogurt except when required for medications. Thank u!

Dear Seema

Triphala is a good alternative for Constipation. Soak 2 teaspoons of Triphala powder in water and leave it overnight. Next morning strain and have that water.
Please answer the following questions.
1. Do you take carbonated drinks? If yes, then how much?
2. Do you feel any Breast pains before menses?
3. What kind of Constipation do you have, Is it like first part is hard and rest stool is soft?
4. Are your Extremities always cold?
5. Do you crave for Sugar, Milk, Eggs?
Please answer the questions and we will recommend you accordingly.

Hello Ajay Sounds like a food intolerance to me, Could be a Gluten intolerance, maybe a Gluten-Free diet would help you, Also Lemon-Juice has a neutralizing effect on stomach acids,
Lemon-Juice mix with water. Coconut Oil is a natural laxative, Also Pure Rhubarb powder mix with yogurt. Best Regards

Dear Motoo
Buy a bottle of Malshudhi vatti from an ayurveda store. Have 1 tablet with a glass of warm water before going to bed. If your stomach goes empty next morning then do not repeat the dose. Take anytime you feel constipation.

Dear Burhan
Try the following.
Buy 1 bottle of Malshudhi vatti and have 1 tablet before going to bed. Next morning if you feel like your stomach is empty then do not take the another dose.
Also add Carrot and Beetroot juice in your daily diet.
Take 3 L of water in a container. Add 1 cucumber, 1 Orange, 1 Lemon and a pinch of Baking Soda into water. Have that water the whole day. Do it for 1 month but do not add Baking soda every day. Add baking soda only for 1 week. As the excess of Baking soda may cause loses. Eat more fibers in your diet.
Eat salads and avoid carbonated drinks, Oily foods and all purpose flour.

Dear Burhan
We suggest you to buy just one dose of Thuja 200 from a Homeopathy shop. Just have one dose only and do not repeat the dose. Study the results and let us know after 2 weeks.
