Flax Seeds

Flax seeds have fat content by virtue of linoleic acids, which we do need,
but are highly recommended by Naturopaths for providing bulk and when
detoxifying the body. I used them cracked and mixed with plantain leaves,
dried corn silk, and psyllium as a colon cleanser (call it swamp muck), but
also enjoy Red River cereal a lot. One naturopath recommends cooking 2 T.
in a bit of boiling water.

You can also cook them in water, strain them, and use the gel as hair gel.
