Flaxseed is a natural gastro-intestinal aid, therefore it is a natural laxative. It has roughage and mucilaginous properties. Flaxseed helps to heal the throat, skin, stomach, bowels and the gastro-intestinal linings. Flaxseed is often used as a poultice or compress and as hot as the individual can stand it when applied to the skin.
