Healthy elimination has been a part of my family for 4 generations. My grandmother gave us strong (warm, not hot) coffee enemas when we had flu and it worked. Recently my 87 yr old Mom got constipated and I gave her a mineral oil enema. They come pre-packaged for one use, or purchase a full bottle of mineral oil and use some of it in a regular enema bag. It goes in slowly and is retained in the body until you natually eliminate. There is no pain, and although it may take a few hours or even a day, it doesn't cause any discomfort.

A regular, warm water enema is my first choice, and NEVER use the pre-packaged enemas with all of the other ingredients. If I travel, I will take one of those individual enema containers, empty it, and put it in the suitcase, and then use purified water if I need to fill it and use it in my long travels.

Constipation is gone. I drink a teaspoonful of sea salt in a cup of purified drinking water.

I use 2 tsp of unrefined sea salt mixed with 1 1/2 to 2 quarts warm water. I was told not to "chug" it, but I do just to get it down. The last half glass is very difficult to get down. Within an hour, you are visiting the bathroom multiple times. I use this as a system flush for candida/fungus/bacteria, but it works perfectly for constipation.

Sea Salt cure for Constipation. Works like a charm! Although I've tried this two ways. I've use epsom salt as well...but it is quite gross and you may throw up, so sea salt is much easier on the taste buds. It could take anywhere from 10mins to 2 hours. If its not working, try drinking more water...the salt is dehydrating your system!! This is probably the most comfortable way than taking a laxative. I tend to get cramping from everything else, ie sienna tea. sea salt is the way to go!
