Tips on how to get your bowels moving:
•Foods with fibre: oat bran, ground flax, dried prunes and figs, soaked overnight in water, nuts and seeds, leafy greens, brown rice, veggie and fruit skins
•Chewing gum (helps move the bowel)—Choose brands sweetened with xylitol
•Aloe Vera juice
•Magnesium oxide—200 to 400 mg/day, not taken with meals
