How to stop constipation?

Constipation may be due to lack of fibre foods or water. Many a time certain foods like bread or rotis can cause this in some individuals. Identify and avoid them. Stress can also cause constipation. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water every day, eat plenty of fibrous food and exercise a few minutes. Chew your food well and eat at regular times. Take laxatives only under directions from a doctor. If it persists a thorough examination is recommended.
