Constipation


Constipation nnd costiveness may arise from various other diseases, but is usually caused by indigestion.

It is always a good plan to endeavor to administer an enema composed of equal parts of castor oil and olive oil. It may be adminis­tered with an ordinary eye dropper which can be secured from a drug store, or may be simply rubbed on the vent. Three to six drops of castor oil may be given internally once or twice daily.

Give a bread and milk diet and some banana. Also mix flaxseed with the other seeds fed.
