  • Thank you so much for this. I’m a Southeast Asian that ate rice three times a day. Switched to keto and my GI tract couldn’t keep up. Couldn’t poop for about a week, but this and another video on youtube about gut massages helped.

  • why are we all constipated on the same day (update I took 3 laxative pills, drank 3 bottles of water, and ate dried prunes. I finally pooped��)

  • guys I took 3 laxative pills a couple days ago it took two days of extreme pain to process but hey I pooped 6 times two days ago and they were all huge and then twice the next day and then once today. I had to take them as an emergency tho cuz I didn’t go for over a week and I had lots of hard rocks at the end of my colon blocking everything. With that eat some dried prunes I promise you they are way better than prune juice. Also tonssss of water and honey you will be cleansing your gut. Also poop yoga �� hope this helps!
