: : : Didn't someone (Harry?) mention on this board that you could get Metamucil in capsules, or was I just doing some wishful dreaming? I checked with the pharmacist at Wal Mart and he said it didn't come in capsules.

: : : Ann S.

: : Hi Ann,

: : You were partly right.I mentioned psyllium husks can be obtained from a health food store.There are several companies that supply them in capsule form: Nature'Way, Solaray, Solgar, Yerba Prima and I am sure there are others.We use Metamucil so much on this board--we think it's a Generic brand but it's not.The caps are sugar free and it also comes in plain powder form but it doesn't mix with liguid very well--it floats on the water.Every time I try it --it gags me.

: :

: : My wife uses the caps---she says the powder mixed with water bloats her and makes her H.hernia hurt and makes her nauseated.She takes 4 a day 2 at breakfast and 2 at supper(Dinner).It works for my wife--who had explosive D. I read that DR.James Balch,MD recommends that you take them at night before bed. As you know drink alot of water. I read your other message and will get back to you---haven't had time to think about it this late!!!

: : God Bless---Harry

: Thanks Harry, I think I'll try the caps when I can get to a health food store. (The nearest is 2hrs. away.) Ann S.

Ann S., Gee,I didn't know anyone lived 2 hrs from a health food store.Thats like 100 miles.
I order most of my vitamins, minerals and supplemnts online.I like the and sites also have alot of information too.As you may known there are many more available. You did't mention any other medication you're taking and any support vits., minerals or supplements you may also be taking. When I write you, I am going to suggest some stuff that you can't buy at Wal Mart.

I don't know if you use your computer to buy online but I really bought mine for trading stocks online but I have been posting messages on this board since last October.I started on the Alternative Medicine Message Board. I have studied and used homeopathy for 25 years and nutrition for about 30 years. I am a big believer in being proactive with your health because of problems I've had with doctors.
God bless---Harry
