Hi, just wanted to share my experience with taking psyllium husks. They have cured my constipation completely. I buy mine in bags from the supermarket in Australia and they can also be found in health food shops here. I mix two heaped spoon fulls with my rice pops in the morning. i used to only be able to go to the loo once a week - now it's everyday. My energy has increased greatly as a result. They may not work for everyone, but they have for me so its worth a go.
