In late July I asked my GI doctor if I could take fibre supplement and she said yes. Then she wrote 'psyllium capsules' on a sheet of paper (not a prescript
ion) and handed it to me. I took the piece of paper to the pharmacy in Costco and was given the Metamucil capsules.
After taking the Metamucil tablets for a couple of days my diarrhea were all gone. I think it has helped me a lot. I'm taking 1 capsule morning and night.
By the way, I checked out my journal just now and noticed that I haven't seen any thick blood since I started taking bee propolis, just a little 'pink' on the tp.
