#1- Stop worrying! Easier said than done I know, but these things are hormonally regulated and stress messes up the system in a lot of people.
Follow a hot cup of (caffeinated and sweetened) coffee with a cold glass of water. The sudden temp. change can sometimes trigger intestinal "movement."
I've always had problems with constipation and this always works for me:
In a high speed blender mix spinach (I use frozen), apple, banana, berries, mango and flax seeds. Thin it out with rice milk or fruit juice.
Drink one of those followed by a big glass of water every day for a week and you'll certainly be regular.
Also, the behavior of colon is completely dependent on your water consumption. Drink at least a half gallon a day.
