Welcome 2 HCM!!

at this age group constipation is the most common problem.
it may be due to decrease in mobility,decreased bowel movement,lower intake of food.

so, walk slowly,minimum for 10 mins

use green leafy vegetables,salads,fibrous food,fruit juices

avoid heavy fermented foods,avoid nonveg food.avoid banana

can try avipattikar churna 1tsf at night with water

it is safe and can for long term
this will help to reduce constipation and also acidity...

also soaked black currants at morning will help in both constipation and anemia

have your mother a very good health!!
