Wheat grass therapy, a home remedy, is known to help even severe and chronic cases of constipation. Have wheat grass juice on an empty stomach first thing in the morning.

You can grow your own wheat grass in earthen pots. Sow wheat grains in seven or eight pots. You can sow one pot of wheat grains every day for 7-8 days. You can the harvest the wheat grass when it is 7-8 eight days old and measures about 8-10 cm.

This gives you enough grass for a week-long therapy session. Keep sowing more grains as you keep harvesting grass, so that you can make the treatment a continuous process. Use only the leaves of the wheat grass to extract the juice; discard the roots. The dosage of the wheat grass juice ranges from 20-50 ml every morning, depending on the severity of the constipation.

Once you drink the juice, avoid taking anything else for the next fifteen minutes. Continue having the juice until the constipation reduces.
