Chronic Constipation

My father is experiencing chronic constipation. He was earlier diagnosed for Inguinal Hernia on both sides. No pain related to that. Problem is with constipation. Can someone suggest proper diet and natural laxatives which can relieve him from constipation. He tried Triphala and Isabgol but no relief. Dulcolax is only providing temporary relief. Please help.

Triphala is one of the best and safest remedies for constipation.  It should be taken regularly for some days. Prepare a concoction by boiling 1 tsp of Triphala powder in 100 ml water for 10 min and then ask him to take this every night at bedtime..This form may give better results. Also you can try Abhayarishta 2 tsp with water   at bedtime.
Along with medicines, he has to follow a proper diet and water intake should be good. He may also take a glass of hot milk with a spoon of pure ghee in the evening.
If problem persists , please visit any ayurvedic doctor for much better management of chronic constipation through various other panchakarma treatments.
