I have been suffering from a wide-range of things and I believe a Candida infestation is on top of the list. I feel my mental capacity has suffered tremendously (brain fog, focus/concentration problems, anxiety, paranoia, ect.) I haven't really done a whole lot of cleanses this past year but did a couple of years ago (h202 therapy, Iodine therapy, P&B shakes, candida diet, ect) .
For the past few months, I have been passing mucus "balls" which usually have string like things attached to them. They are usually brown (or the color of my stool) but some are black. Once removed from the "mucus balls", they almost look like segmented worms and fall apart easily. Once they fall apart, they look like "black specs" in the toilet. They are about 5-10 mm in length. They also attach to undigested food.
From the pictures I have seen on this forum and other websites, these critters do not look like Candida (color-wise). I thought maybe they were Rhizoids of candida, but I posted over at the Candida Forum and someone suggested to post here. I tried taking pictures, but I don't have a high quality digital camera to capture them.
Can anyone help me out and identify these things? Much appreciated :)
Well, it isn't quite that easy. It really depends on how long you have been infected.
Best to start off with the Humaworm or similar protocol first, which should help take down the load if it is high enough. But, in some cases pharmaceutical agents may be needed.
You are best to do these things under the advisement of a specialist.
Anyhow...many here, have had success on their own. It is just that other factors can be involved, and things can be layered in a more complex set of circumstances.
For example, many people with Lyme disease tend to have parasites as co-infections.
There are a few basic recomendations as far as order of treatment...
Start with a some good colon cleansing then move into strong deworming protocols like with Barefoots dewormer. He is kind of difficult to order from and what not but it's worth the effort to try and get some. His product is the only thing that I really used other than Humaworm, so I myself don't know of what else you might try.
I was looking around at more pictures and another person calls the "cotton balls" intestinal flukes (I don't know what they are). Look here if you dare http://curezone.com/ig/f.asp?f=2097
But if they are indeed mainly in your intestinal system certain formulas target those area's better. I know Barfoots dewormer works especially good in the gut. Check Dr. Sutters forum for notes about all that. Humaworm is said by Doc Sutter to not target the gut very well. They are easy to order from but it's not a very strong product, especially if you don't double their dose and stay on it for longer than they recommend. Maybe some people like a milder product though??
I think people mess around on the bowel cleansing stuff, I like to take care of business and strip the colon of the entire mucus lining (where tons of bugs are residing) rather than merely create bulk in the colon with fiber. All the kits sold over the counter just dink around with fiber instead of getting rid of the mucus lining.... I think getting rid of all the petrified stuff is almost as important as hitting the parasites in the body with dewormers. This leaves them with less places to hide and you healthier so you can fight off parasites better.
Definitely keep asking others their opinions though, this was just my own private experience. Be sure to address any pets and family as well. You will all reinfect each other if anyone goes without thorough treatment.
I appreciate the advice as it is very encouraging. I wish I could stay on a diet, but it is very difficult for me to stick on one. My digestion is worsening each year, and I have lost 15 lbs the past year which is a lot for my 5'10" male frame (135 lbs now).
I have done 2 Liver Flushes in the past 2 months and take psyllium powder for constipation and currently doing H202 therapy, h2o2 enemas and using a parasite zapper (15hz).
I wish all these herbs and supplements weren't so expensive...that's what caused me jump off the bandwagon a year ago. I'll probably try out the Barefoot DeWormer and CoQ10 powder. CoQ10 is expensive stuff but I hear it has benefited people.
