thanks so much for this testimony, its good to hear things got better for you.
did i understand your post correctly? - sometimes you just eat the gel but not the actual seeds? and that works for you?
very interesting. i have found the same thing works with rice gel. you make this by boiling a small amount of rice with a large amount of water, soon the water turns to gel. its great for the bowels. i think it works because the body senses it as food and so sends it to the intestines. once there the gel hydrates and heals the intestinal tract which has become dehydrated and rough.
you might say, well why not just drink water? because the water is absorbed long before it reaches very far into your intestinal tract. it can even be absorbed directly from the stomach.
anyway, thats my theory, there may be another reason why it works.
