In general,change in your lifestyle and diet can help in relieving your symptoms.
But the fact is that ,it takes a longtime and real effort.
Adopt the following....
A high fibre diet having plenty of green salads,green vegetables,fresh fruits,whole grains and less of foods having less fibre like meat and processed foods.
Plenty of water to drink
Regular exercises for 45 minutes a day
Take time for your bowel movements and dont be in hurry.
Laxatives should be avoided as they are habit forming and cause rebound constipation.
You can take fibre supplements like ISABGOL HUSK or FYBOGEL powder twice a day with plenty of water.

I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
