CONSTIPATION
Please can you tell me what I can use for constipation. I used the Aloe Lumps and they seemed to work for a while, but now they do not work anymore. I always used Laxa, but not on a regular basis, and now I took half a tablet on Sunday night (usually it helps), nothing happend so I took another half a tablet again on Monday night, still nothing happend and last night I tried the Aloe Lumps again, and still nothing. Surely this is not normal and yesterday afternoon my stomach was so sore and bloated . Please help. What can I do to get my body functioning again without having to take laxatives.

Lizelle, if there has been no improvement by the time you receive this reply, the best would be to see your doctor. Safe medication to use on a daily basis is Duphalac®. It will soften the stools and make them come out easier. It doesn’t have long term side effects like Laxa. Good luck.
