Detailed Answer:
Hi

Since you are having constipation and your stool is hard at first and then soft and you eat good food i would advise you to drink lemon juice.

You can extract the juice of half a lemon and add it to a glass of warm water.

I will advise you to add a pinch of rock salt or one half teaspoon of table salt and a little honey to it.

You need to drink the lemon water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. You can also drink a glass of this solution in the evening.

Follow the above remedy and your stool will become soft and well formed within 2 weeks.

Regards

Dr De
