The fact that, as you say, psyllium fibre ‘scrubs the colon” can be a problem because of the husks which are very hard and sharp, making it dangerous for the intestines and colon. Even psyllium husk powder can contain tiny shards which, when ingested are not safe enough to move through the delicate pathway of the intestines. Psyllium has actually been known to cause bleeding of the intestines as well as bloating.
The common warnings for psyllium use are to stop using a psyllium product and call a doctor at once if you experience choking or trouble swallowing, severe stomach pain or cramping, nausea or vomiting, rectal bleeding, an itchy skin rash, or constipation that lasts longer than 7 days.
Acacia Senegal fiber, such as Heather’s Tummy Fiber, is an organic Acacia Senegal fiber known for the management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome symptoms as well as any type of constipation or cleanser for the intestine is a 100% Acacia Senegal product. It contains the highest grade available, and is a natural, pure, organic soluble dietary fiber. Medicinally, Acacia Senegal sooths mucous membranes of the intestines and is used to treat inflammation. In addition, it’s often used as an astringent to treat bleeding, bronchitis, diarrhea, gonorrhea, and upper respiratory tract infections.
Die-off symptoms often include night sweats, and actually sweating is exactly what you want to do when experiencing die-off symptoms as it helps to remove the dangerous toxins from your body. Look for two products to help remove the toxins and therefore reduce or remove most of the die-off symptoms, Molybdenum and Candidate by Native Remedies.
