    Psyllium is a fiber that will help your stool bulk up and it down a bit. Psyllium is a bulking fiber that will help to thicken things up down there.

    Wasn't sure if you were right about the psylium after reading this:

    "Although it is often called a laxative, it is not. It is, however, a rich source of soluble fibre. Soluble fibre becomes gelatinous and sticky in water and is not absorbed in the small intestine. It passes through to the colon where it helps to bulk up the stool, producing a larger softer stool which is easier to pass."

    & "Psyllium is a bulking agent that promotes bowel regularity"
    "

    But I then read this
    Psyllium

    so I'm going to buy some and see what's what

    Metamucil which is psyllium husks does help, at least it helps with TF patients that have increased stooling.

    pyslium is good, but eat alot of veggies, the cellulose from the vegetables, not being able to be digested remains fibrous and cleans out your gastrointestinal tract.

    This is what I was thinking too...In my experiences, psylium just makes me go that much more often, which I believe is the opposite of what the poster wants.

    Is this due to diarrhea? If so, I could understand how psyllium could help.

    From what I have experienced I just don't understand how it would help for the posters probelm...as I stated earlier, when I'm on a bulking diet, psyllium only seems to add fuel to fire.

    Until I tried psyllium for myself, I was sure it would worsen my problem, basically a mild IBS-D type, but it definitley helped regulated and hold things together.

    Fiber is one of those things that needs to be experimented with to figure out what the right amount is.

    I read from a few sites that it can help with both constipation and diarrhea. Weird, but that's what they say. I've taken delivery of 500g of psylllium, so I'll know what's what pretty soon.

    Opium and white bread will probably work but I'm not sure about the banana. Was that suggestion made with the understanding that it was the slow down rather than hasten?

    I've taken my first lot of psyllium - 4g in a pint of water. I can't wait for my next sh1t to see what it's like, lol.

    I would link but I'm not sure of the rules regarding retailers. I'm in Britain and it's from an online retailer here.
    From the site:

    "Whole Psyllium Husks"

    'Psyllium Husk Powder can be a convenient way to increase the intake of dietary fiber. It has the ability to swell up to 50 times its initial volume when added to liquid. This bulking action can play an important role in maintaining regularity and gastrointestinal health.

    Without drinking enough liquid the product may swell in the throat, causing blockage or choking. Avoid use if you ever had esophageal narrowing or swallowing difficulties.'

    It's a fine, brown powder; I imagine and hope that that is usual.

    I try to take psyllium husks, and include them in my shakes, flaxseed muffins, and sometimes just mixed with water.

    Sh1tting has never been more fun!

    Another thing I notice is that, if you haven't taken it in a while, you will probably not go for a day, haha.

    Just got mine in. It's from NOW. I took my first serving of one tablespoon about 30 mintues ago. I will also start Controlled Labs Orange Triad tomorrow which has some digestive aids so we'll see how the combo goes. I'm going to play it by ear with the servings of the Psyllium.

    Normally I'm bad about not doing that, but I really don't want to blow a gasket at the wrong time because I took too much. I'm just trying to slow my junk down.

    I like Fiberrific. But I don't quite understand the problem - ideally you should have a bowel movement for each meal your consume.

    Not as of yet, but last night was my first time using it and this evening was my second time. I can say that this morning was the first time this semester I didn't almost crap my pants on the way to school or have to immediately after getting to campus. I cleared the chamber before my first class just to be safe. Overall I would have to say today was good for me in regards to bathroom visits.

    I can accept that...but my problem is that I have to have that BM sometimes immediately or within minutes of consuming my meals.

    That sounds unusual. Has it always been this way? More to the point: are your stools loose or firm? If they are well formed then it's probably nothing to worry about.

    Watch out to whoever said milk/cottage cheese etc...Dairy type products might make someone a little more constipated then normal. So watch the balance and try to go for more complex carbs/fiber type foods.

    My one friend even said Green Tea was giving him really good bathroom trips soo mess around with that.

I have multiple issues but that's a big one, I vary b/t loose/firm, runs/stopped up. Other times it's just random oh my god I'm about to crap my pants in a moments notice. Dr has me on Loperamide (Imodium AD) but that doesn't solve it most the time.

    Thanks...I am 26 and have been this way my whole life. I can't count how many times I've blown a seal trying to get to the toilet, even in adulthood. I finally went to a GI after one such incident while with an ex. I know my anxieties play a part and adrenaline too in general. I never made the adrenaline correlation until a Sociology professor told us in my Deviance class last semester about how home burglers will sometimes leave a Cleveland Steamer in the house because the adrenaline excites them so much they have to release.

    if that's the case then modifying his diet might be helpful. I know that wheat can aggravate intestinal problems, but other foods may also cause problems. Perhaps the best course of action would be to try an elimination diet.

    Thanks for you input. I have done an elimination diet both for migraines (which I have thankfully outgrown) and my IBS. Each time it yielded no results as to specific triggers.

    Damn, that sucks. Have you tried anything that could help with inflammation/irritation like DGL or aloe juice? DGL promotes mucous production and the aloe juice will help your digestive tract in a number of ways. Safety of Drinking Aloe Juice Daily
