    if you are plugged up and can't go potty, drinking warm water every half hour then laying down flat on the floor or bed , it will help unplug the clog, it never fails...your body will let you know when, don't try to go before your body tells you...

    I do not like drinking hot water unless I have a sore throat and then I add a little salt to it in order to gargle with it. Drinking hot water over cold water has no known benefits and can actually cause more problems if you drink very much of it. It can cause dehydration and nausea or vomiting in large amounts. Drinking warm milk is beneficial before bed as a sleep aide, but not warm water. Choose cool or cold water for drinking and save hot water for showers or baths.
