    It's constipation. WHat I do when that happens is take a stool softner and a laxitive. Within 1 or 2 days it will be working fine again

    Drink lots of water, eat fruit, oranges are great for constipation. Drink prune juice every day, take Metamucil 2-3 times a day with plenty of water, eat lots of vegetables also. Good Luck!

    eat "right"

    plenty of whole grains, fruits and veggies.

    plus do yoga and curl yourself in a ball; physical exercise too.

    bowels are not a problem for me.

    OK here is a temporary solution Magnesium citrate which is a drink that will expel your feces. Another is prunes and or grapes. This is wonderful and healthy for you.

    Eat a lots of fruits, vegetables, and fiber like wheat bread, wheat germ, and of course you must exercise like walk 45 minutes a day to help get the "process" going.

    Drink a lots of water, too this helps it to become watery and helps push it down your colon. 

    IF you are sedentary this will be no good for your situation, so eat, drink well, and exercise.

    Always examine what is in the toilet to know how you are doing health-wise.
