Old home remedy for constipation

There is more than one home remedy for constipation, which was also called “costiveness” in the old days.

Constipation is the inability to have bowel movements on a regular basis. It can cause bloating, sluggishness, fatigue, irritability and discomfort.

Dr. A.W. Chase felt that chronic constipation was a health risk:

"Constipation means the production of many poisons in the digestive tract which are absorbed into the system and produce a chronic state of disease."

"If medicine is needed, take 10 to 20 drops of Fluid Extract Cascara Sagrada once or twice a day. Massage over bowels will cure many cases."

Dr. Chase referred to cascara sagrada, an herbal remedy, as "medicine!" The healing power of herbs was held in great regard by many old-time physicians and they relied on natural herbal remedies as much as modern physicians rely on synthetic drugs and chemicals.
