The husks of psyllium seed are very abrasive for an inflamed gastrointestinal track and also they contain what many nutritionists think is an insoluble carbohydrate (lignin) which I feel that some bacteria (Costerton's work) can attack and gain nourishment from it. So even though Metamucil without husks (I assume Metamucil and psyllium are the same thing) is helping some people, generally it is not legal. If you have been taking it for certain reasons, perhaps it will not bother you. Soy sauce is not permitted, miso (fermented soy sauce ) can be tried when you are off your drugs and doing fine, and raw fish is something which biochemically should be OK and I am having next week for the first time but the other problems we hear lately about pollution are subjects I, of course, do not understand.
