Thankful for this product

I have had problems with constipation for many years. Finally, something works without cramping or pain or making me feel sick in some way! I can only take 1/4-1/2 pill at night, though…anymore than that and they do cause painful cramping all night for me. Very thankful for this product.

Safe and gentle relief
By Sugar Magnolia on July 30, 2015
My husband and son both struggle with chronic constipation. Over the years I’ve learned what works best, what doesn’t work, among many other things I never wanted to know about poop.
We’ve worked with a homeopath for years for other issues, but for some inexplicable reason I haven’t really used it for this particular issue despite having several of the single remedies in this preparation on hand. When I was offered and opportunity to try this at a discount for my honest review, I jumped on it.
I wasn’t familiar with the potencies listed Aloes SocoD1, AlumenD3, BryoniaÃ˜, Croton TigD1, HydrastisÃ˜, Mag MurD3 I know that different countries use different letters so I googled. what is D potency ?
d is decimal.
c is centesimal
that means D remedies are made with 10 times dilution, instead of the
100 used in C.
I was satisfied with this, so I went ahead and ordered. Basically what this means is it is closer to the American X potency which is the best choice for an issue that’s happening right now, as opposed to a chronic issue. Either will work for treatment, but this potency will work faster.
I’m really particular about ingredients due to my son’s extensive food allergies. So I contacted the seller and asked for the inactive ingredients. The seller responded quickly. This product contains Lactose base, Potato Starch, Rice starch and plant cellulose to keep it all together. There are no chemicals or drugs in this product. The coloring of the tablets is plant based and not an artificial dye.
I also received a comprehensive email detailing how to use this product. If you aren’t familiar with homeopathy, this would be very useful. This is not like taking a laxative. Homeopathy gently supports your body to do what it needs to. If you have a new issue, you can expect to take this for just a few days. If you have a chronic problem, a general rule of thumb is one month of treatment for each year you’ve had the problem. Sometimes you need to make some lifestyle adjustments. If eating gluten causes constipation, you should stop eating it rather than rely on a bunch of products to have bowel movements.
This is a safe and gentle product, using well known remedies to provide support in the relief of constipation. If you’ve ever suffered constipation, you will want to have some on hand.

Gentle Option To Help To …er.. Take A Load Off!
By Product Reviews By Pam TOP 500 REVIEWER on February 6, 2016
Warning: “Potty Mouth” discussion below. This review is for a laxative so if you don’t like discussions about natural bodily functions, then please move on to another review!
I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome – so I go through spells where my system naturally expels everything every morning as though I’m on a laxative, But at other times, things stop for several days, and then come out in a painful explosion… and it really sucks. As a Massage Therapist I don’t like taking drugs if I don’t have to. So any time I can try something that will help my body to regain balance without the use of drugs or nasty chemical I’ll … er… give it a go… lol.
Technically this is not a laxative in the traditional sense of the word. It isn’t using chemicals to get your system to expel the poop. This “Laxative” is a Homeopathic remedy, which means that it contains *minute* amounts of the substances that help the body to restore balance. Because I have a chronic issue, this isn’t something I can take for 1 day, or even a week, and expect it to necessarily have immediate results. However, I have to say that the days after I took the first few doses, I had soft, easy-to-pass bowel movements in the morning. So right now I have to say that I’m pretty impressed with these little pills.
One thing, if the person taking the pills doesn’t do well with pills, these may be a *bit* big for them. I know my 87 yr old father wouldn’t be able to manage these but he’s terrible with taking pills. However, I don’t see why you couldn’t crush these as I don’t see any mention of any kind of timed-release design.
If I have any other experiences while taking these I’ll be back to update – but right now, knowing what I know of Homeopathy and my experience so far, I’m pretty impressed… and for someone with IBS, that really DOES take a load off my mind…LOL!
I did receive this for free for a fair and honest review… however, I try to work with items I need so I can give them a real trial, and thus my opinions and experiences are a real and true reflection of my experience with the product. I hope my review helps you in your purchase decisions!

Let’s talk about poop.
By Ash on August 30, 2015
***Warning: this review contains bathroom talk. Don’t read if you don’t suffer from stomach issues. If you do, you’ll probably think “I feel ya, sister!” but if you don’t, you’re going to be grossed out and feel dirty. You have been warned!**
This isn’t a typical laxative. Over the years I’ve tried everything from Miralax and Colace to fiber and Ex Lax. When I used Ex Lax, I ended up doubled over in agony, explosively pooping and violently puking at the same time. This is not an exaggeration. I was pushed to use it after a week of no bowel movements and urging from my mother in law who had convinced me I was going to basically die if I didn’t produce some form of waste from some orifice of my body immediately. Colace honestly didn’t do too much for me and Miralax is really hard for me to take. (I’d probably choose death over drinking liquid medication, even if it’s liquid I just add a powder to. I am not kidding. I can swallow pills and that’s it.)
I’m already on so many prescription drugs, I really didn’t want to add one for pooping. I watched my diet, increased my fiber intake, and was lucky to poop twice a week – and that’s painful, round and hard types of poop. Like they could probably be used as enemy fire in the form of small cannons kind of poop. Not fun.
This was so much better than anything I’ve tried before. It’s all natural, first of all, which is always preferable to harsh prescription drugs. This gently motivated my body to eliminate, instead of intensely evicting everything I’ve ever consumed. I take it twice a day and it just helps me go like a normal person. I do not go every day yet, but I’m more regular than I’ve ever been in my adult life. This is not your typical laxative – it gets and keeps your body on a regular schedule of bowel movements. I even waited a few days to review this to make sure there were no weird side effects because it worked so well. So far, I’ve found nothing. The company says this is non-habit forming which may sound funny at first (imagine a drug addict dependent on laxatives!), but your body really can become dependent on laxatives and not go if you stop taking them. That eased my mind because I don’t want ill effects if I forget a dose or if I run out at some point. I don’t imagine that happening because I will be ordering these regularly in the future.

Not so gentle, unsure of ingredients
By Merry on September 21, 2015
1 pill worked overnight but caused a lot of cramping for my husband. It’s not like normal homeopathic combination remedies that are usually dissolved under the tongue. It’s a fairly large pill (not hard-to-swallow large, but large compared to homeopathic remedies), and for some reason it’s dyed red. That seems odd and not in keeping with traditional homeopathy. Whatever the inactive ingredients are that bind the pill together and that color it, they are not listed on the package. Maybe they don’t require that for things manufactured in Pakistan? Or maybe it was on the leaflet inside and I missed it. The active ingredients listed on the box don’t match what’s listed on the website. We’ll try something else next time.
