Heather, I have your book, and it is great. I've recently bought some prodiem to see if there is any change. In your experience, is the prodiem the same as Metamucil? I don't really suffer from D anymore....poor motility and C mostly (but I do alternate between D and C sometimes) Won't all this soluble fiber, as in rice, bung me up more? I'm not getting any better, and don't know what else to try.
