Try this list of options to get things moving.
Not being able to poop is the worst. Constipation, or lack of regular bowel movements, can be caused by a range different things. And that includes what you eat.
Sure, there are different tactics you can try to get things moving again, including medication. But if you don’t think your constipation is due to an underlying health condition and want to take matters in your own hands, doctors and dietitians say eating the right foods should help stimulate your digestive system.
“It’s best to solve the issue from the inside out,” says board-certified gastroenterologist Ashkan Farhadi, M.D., director of MemorialCare Medical Group’s Digestive Disease Project in Fountain Valley, CA.
In general, you want to look for foods that are high in fiber to help bulk up your poop. “It’s easier to move something through the colon that’s bulkier,” Dr. Farhadi explains. (Some foods even have unique compounds and help spur bowel activity.) So if nature hasn’t called in a while and you want to try a natural route first, load up on these foods to help relieve constipation ASAP.
Zach: Have to read to the end....The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot", according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from the Consulate at Bergen, Norway.Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard of temperatures in the Arctic zone.Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.
