When you’re constipated, it can be easy to reach for the over-the-counter remedies but they don’t give you the nutrients that your body is crying out for.

Why not give your body a dose of fibre so you can clear out your gut? It tastes great and is fine to drink even when you aren’t backed up.

Psyllium husk renowned for its cleansing properties – it helps bind waste together, while ginger flushes out toxins.

Ginger-psyllium husk drink cleanse


  • 5 green apples or 500mL organic apple juice
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground psyllium husk
  • one carrot (optional)


  1. Juice your apples then put into a blender with the ginger and psyllium husk. Blend until smooth and drink immediately.
  2. Drink 2-3 glasses of water (not all at once!) after drinking this cleanse to move the psyllium through your colon.
  3. Eat a light lunch and dinner because the psyllium will expand in your stomach.

  1. I too am on pain relief medications for severe spinal stenosis. A locum doctor said Vitamin C is very good for constipation so I now have a medium size glass of Orange/Mango Juice every morning and this has helped a great deal. I also have psyllium husk on my cereal.

  2. Looks like a great recipe. Psyllium is the best remedy for constipation anyway.
