I have been struggling with intestinal problems for about 3 months.
The problem seems to be until I eliminate all waste and then I feel better. I was seeing an applied kineseologist who said that my houston's valves - the valves that close the rectum from the large intestine were not closing properly.
Prior to the enema's I felt my usual sleepy/dizzy/ eye pain, blurred vision, sensitivity to light.
After the enema process, I felt instantly better. My body relieved, symptoms gone. There was white junk that came out in the enema. Sometimes I have little white balls in bowel movements and I had these in bowel movements this weekend, but I also had bowel movements of pure white junk from the Grape fruit seed extract enema.
I think I have leaky gut + bacterial imbalance which is causing endotoxins to be released. I also have the valve problem, and I think toxicity puts pressure on my liver which causes my problems and drains my adrenal glands.
I would like to have someone other opinions on this. I have many symptoms of candida, but they are the same symptoms as leaky guy, adrenal fatique, houston's valve problems.
I think this week I am going to look into getting tested, I guess with Geneva labs, regarding leaky gut. In the past I tested with Metametrix twice but still have the ongoing problem.
Also, I have read so many threads on here and the internet as a whole and there seems to be no consensus on what the white stuff is that comes out!
I have had tons of tests with medical dr's, seen nature paths, and have made progress finding some things and fixing them along the way. But I have not been able to get it right, and have tried so many things, I am working to narrow down a final diagnosis so I am not working in the dark.
I have fatigue, generally problems around the eyes, I am toxic at times during the day to the point that I get heat rash if getting hot prior to a bowel movement. After a bowel movement I often feel better - the floaters/eye pain disapears. but it always comes back. I have many other typical symptoms of bowel problems - listed on all the webpage and here - but the biggest difference seems to be the rashes/eye pain that come prior to bowel movements and then go away.
If anyone could help point me in the right direction I would be much appreciated. I have tried many things.
It certainly sounds like you're describing fungal balls which are fungal form yeast in a biofilm that form in the gut lumen but don't attach to the walls. They are very different than mucus, ranging from very white to off white, with distinct to slightly smeared borders and almost look like you've passed a chunk of feta cheese or styrofoam.
Hopefully the Genova test will give you a clear answer.
I was recommended about 9 months ago that i may be an ICV problem.... I think it may have been you who said it now that I remember :) Thanks so much.
So I go to an applied kineseologist in London, where I had just moved to, and he tests that valve correct but my houston valve as problematic using muscle testing.
He would push it shut forcefully in an upwards motion - and as he would do it my eyes would crack and pop and feel better as he was pushing. They would clear up instantly, and my body would feel as if I just went to the sauna or had an epsolm salt detox bath.
I am now trying to press it myself, but it is difficult so I will see a kineseologist locally now back home in the United States.
Anyway my theory, apparently from reading I have done, it is a lot more to it than just waste coming back into the body - but that it can lead to a disfunction of the intestines, leading the bacteria to get out of balance and release endotoxins and other waste into my body which makes me sick.
Very interesting, and amazing that they are able to adjust it externally. That must have been intense.
I think you're right about the bacterial overgrowth and resulting endotoxins. That was a big part of my problem - colonic bacteria growing in the small bowel. It's remarkable how bad they can make you feel.
Some of those bacteria are only susceptible to bile, so I recommend you look into that as one of the ways to push them back into the colon.
Well if you push upwards from the outside of the houston valve, you can feel the improvement instantly. It takes a lot of strength and is difficult to do on your own. It is kind of amazing how you can feel the improvement instantly.
Also problematic was the fact that the valves would stay open in time.
He would also do some back corrections if necessary, recommend a few herbs (its amazing how he can test the streng needed - milk thistle for toxicty and licorice root for adrenal glands), do some accupressure rubbing on my head.
What are you doing to combat your bacteria overgrowth in your small intestine/increase bile?
