Treating Constipation

Easy tips for treating constipation – A common symptom of Angelman syndrome.

When you see constipation listed as a symptom of Angelman syndrome, do not lose hope that it cannot be treated. A diagnosis of Angelman syndrome does not necessarily mean one is destined to suffer from all of the symptoms often associated with the genetics.

Many individuals that follow these easy steps are able to have healthy digestion without medications, enemas or natural laxatives.

Here is what you can do:

Eat a whole food, high-fiber diet.
Add 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseeds to your daily diet.
Eat healthy fats like avocado, olives, olive oil, grass-fed butter, coconut oil and try MCT oil.
Supplement with Magnesium, Vitamin C and Probiotics.
Drink 7-8 glasses of water a day.
Exercise or get the body moving as much as possible.

Do not confuse whole food with whole grain. Whole foods mean fruits and vegetables fresh or frozen. Unprocessed and not in a box from the center isles in the grocery store.

What to strictly avoid when constipated:
Dairy, sugar, gluten, bread, pasta, and all processed foods.
