jury to the Bowels
If you are subject to constipation,
you should avoid strong drugs and
cathartics. They only give temporary
relief and their reaction is harmful
and sometimes more annoying than
constipation. They in no way effect
a cure and their tendency is to
weaken the already weak organs with
which they come in contact.

the best constipation treatment ever
