In brief: Yes

Stimulant herbal laxatives like senna, cascara sagrada and aloe rind can work just as well as bisacodyl.
Like all medicines how well it works is related to the dose you take. Of course, stimulant laxatives should only be used on occasion. A high-fiber diet is important, and fiber supplements can help. The ayurvedic herbal tonic Triphala is also safe & effective for regular use.
