Please help identify white specks in my stool?
I've had them consistently in my stool since starting a strict anti candida diet 3 months ago. I've had candida for over 20 years, causing leaky gut and an immune response - alopecia areata. Although I don't see Candida albicans in my stool anymore I'm not really improving as expected - still get anal itch, still have yellow cakey tongue and still get hair fall out.
Right now I'm suffering fatigue like never before, It's been at least a month and If it's detox I just want it done with! I keep in shape and I'm normally active but these issues make me feel 30 years older!
I'm on antifungals, DE, ACV, garlic, digestive enzymes, l-glutamine, vit c and all the antifungals in cooking such as coconut oil. Also make my own kefir and take 45billion probiotics. I drink 3 litres of water daily and workout but still get constipated a few times a week.
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? And what are these tiny little white seseme seed like specks in my stool, they are there everyday, and I don't eat seeds.
Back in Sept. I had an appendicitis and I was very successfully able to cure myself of it so I did not have to go to the hospital. I wanted to post what I did to get rid of it here so others might be able to do the same. My boyfriend and I spent about 20 hours reading online how to cure this appendicitis because I had just canceled my insurance a few weeks prior and I did not want to have it removed for obvious reasons including past experience with doctors and not trusting the medical system in general.
First, what I believe caused the appendicitis in the first place: I had been eating almost a no fat diet and this is what I believe caused it. I later learned that your appendix is like a little oil can for your colon and if you don't have fat/oil in your diet, it can dry up and get infected. I had also been having problems with constipation on top of not eating fat and so I believe this is what contributed to it because when you get severely constipated, the fecal matter can get backed up into the appendix and cause an infection as well.
The appendicitis was very painful and I felt it coming on for about a week and it got to the point where I had to miss work for several days because I was walking around hunched over it hurt so much. But what I did ended up relieving me of the pain within a few days and it took about 2 weeks for it to completely go away to where I felt pain free. I waited to post until now because I wanted to make sure it wasn't going to come back.
So here's what all I did to get rid of the appendicitis:
First, I stopped eating all food except for what is described below:
1.) Drank lots of water and buttermilk (for the probiotics)
2.) Took lots of chewable vitamin C all day long.
3. Ate 3-6 cloves of raw garlic daily on top of a tablespoon of coconut oil. I ate this garlic/oil concoction twice daily. (Each morning and night I chopped 3 big cloves at a time and let them sit for 7 minutes so the potency could build. I read this was the best way to increase the antibiotic strength of garlic and then I ate it mixed with the oil. I just chewed it up. I believe the garlic and oil are the most important thing in this regime and they are what saved me.)
4.) I also took some garlic tablets that I got at the health food store to make sure I was getting enough of the antibiotics in garlic. I just took these when I remembered them. I wasn't consistent.
5.) I did castor oil packs on my appendix with a heating pad. This helped the pain a lot and I often fell asleep with it on.
6.) I alternated hot and cold water from the shower on the location of the appendix to help it move the infection out. I read this was important to do. I read that you could put an ice pack on the appendix, but this caused a lot more pain, so I stuck with the cool water instead.
7.) I drank strong fenugreek tea that I boiled on the stove 2x per day.
All of these things: garlic, coconut oil, fenugreek tea and buttermilk and castor oil packs are supposed to help cure an appendicitis.
I did this regime for about a week with no food at all except for what is described above. When I started to feel better, I added whole wheat toast to eat the garlic on because eating garlic by itself is not pleasant at all. The buttermilk was fairly filling so I did fine with not eating much on this. I lost about 5 pounds.
I read later that sometimes just eating some oil, like coconut oil, can push the infection out of appendix since the appendix is our little oil can for the colon. I do believe the coconut oil was a big help as well.
After it was all over, I could feel my appendix occasionally and whenever I would eat something fatty, the feeling would go away.
This was a great experience for me because now I know I have the power to cure myself if I do enough research. And I saved myself thousands of dollars by not going to get it removed. I also read somewhere that people that have had their appendixes removed have a higher rate of colon cancer.
I should also mention that I am prone to UTIs and when I felt one coming on a few weeks ago, I ate raw garlic and it was gone by the next day.
Raw garlic is an amazing antibiotic and can be used for any infection. I either eat it on toast with coconut oil, as mentioned above or I pop some popcorn with coconut oil and then melt a little more coconut oil slightly in a pan and put the minced garlic in the oil and pour it over the popcorn. This is a very delicious way to eat it.
What exactly were your symptoms that cause you to conclude you had an inflamed appendix? I'm not saying you didn't, I'm just curious as to what you experienced. I am much impressed with your determination. I also wonder what I would do if me or a family member truly had appendicitis. I am terrified of doctors from some bad experiences; also, I dislike their philosophy: when in doubt, cut it out, no matter what.
Thanks for the question. Yes, it took a while for me to figure out it was an appendicitis. At first I thought it might be an ovarian cyst or something of that nature. But it was in the exact location where the appendix is.
Every time I would research the symptoms I was having, appendicitis was what would come up in the search results. I honestly did not want to believe it was an appendicitis because the idea of that scared the hell out of me. I always heard you needed to have it removed surgically. But the more I read about naturopaths and other people curing themselves of it, the better I felt about trying to cure myself. I just took a gamble and assumed that an appendicitis was most likely what it was based on all the hours of research I had done. I decided if it got really bad I would end up going to the hospital. But I didn't feel it had gotten that bad yet.
I also read that there is a difference between chronic appendicitis and acute. Acute is the one where someone is in such pain that they have to go tot he hospital. I was probably in the chronic stage, slowly moving into the acute stage.
In my experience, this did not come on overnight. It happened within about a week and slowly got worse. You have time to fix it yourself if you don't wait too long. Hope this helps!
Should also mention that my exact symptoms were a radiating pain that came from the location of the the appendix area. It started off dull and slowly became worse over a period of days until the area was very painful. It definitely felt like an infection of the area, if that makes sense.
Should also mention that the castor oil packs really cut down on the pain. They seemed to somehow suck the infection out and reduce what felt like swelling in the area. I read that it wasn't recommended to do a heating pad with the castor oil packs if you have an appendicitis, but I did not take that advice and did the heat because it made it feel better. But as I mentioned, I also alternated hot and cold water a few times a day as well. There is some interesting info out there about Edgar Cayce and castor oil packs with regard to appendicitis.
I am so glad to hear that you cured yourself with natural remedy and not solve things with immediate goal rather than long term goal. Read my experience with my dog which I posted before I read this message. I rub Castor oil on my abdomen everyday.
I wonder if taking Castor Oil orally would have helped. My parents gave us one spoon of Castor oil every month to clean our colon. I hated that as a child because we were not allowed to eat breakfast that day and then frequent pooping followed.
That is wonderful about your dog and the castor oil. My Mother also told me the same thing about castor oil and having to take it as a child. She said they were hesitant to tell their parents they had a stomach ache, because a spoonful of castor oil was always the remedy. :)
I saw a very interesting post awhile back regarding castor oil and a woman flattening her belly with it. Not sure if this would work on every bloated belly, but it was a very interesting post. Here it is:
Thank you for the link. I think I have read that message a very long time ago. I do castor oil rub and gave tried the same method as that poster, Raymond but my belly does not go away. Fasting is the only thing that gets rid if my belly, but when start eating it returns.
you completely forgot about squatting. Appendicitis is a disease of westernized countries, virtually unknown in the developing world. The reason is that the cecum was designed to be squeezed empty by the right thigh, in the squatting position. On a sitting toilet, it is physically impossible to compress the cecum. The back-pressure can also overwhelm the ileocecal valve, whose purpose is to protect the small intestine from fecal contamination. Barium enema exams and intestinal surgeries routinely show the leakage of wastes into the small intestine. Crohn's Disease develops in the area soiled by this toxic backwash.
Despite all the straining, the cecum never gets evacuated. Residual wastes adhere to the colon wall, increasing the risk of cancer and inflammation (including appendicitis.)
that said if you think you had it you might want to follow up with a cat scan to be sure it is gone as my brother just had fever chills pain in right side and have been nauseated when eating some foods saying he had food poisoning several times..i ate this same food and had no such effects..blood in a urine a week ago the color of an orange crayon and then dark tea was what prompted him to go to er.
It turns out had a urinary tract infection that was unrelated but what saved his life as it prompted him to go to ER and someone to insist and made sure he went.
It turned out he had a ruptured appendix for maybe months when he had the symptoms earlier.
I did not even know a person could live with a ruptured appendix not only that he was lifting a very heavy wheelchair in and out of car maybe 35 times a week and lifting very heavy boxes of produce I am using for my cancer.
The dr said he could have died but something you have no pain. There was little infection because the body tries to help you by walling off all infection and inflammation in a huge balls like a tumor
He had a between large grapefruit an small cantaloup size full of infection..the appendix was not sticking out and was wrapped under the colon and dr had to remove not only the large inflamed mass/ball and the appendix but also some of his small intestine and colon.
He had complications and had to be put on a ventilator in a medically induced coma and thankfully came out of it and is being released tomorrow.
Since i need him to be able to lift when recovered as acting as my caretaker, what might help him heal better and eventually be able to life despite them cutting abdominal walls.
any herbs, supplements or foods that could help him heal to be able to lift again one day..I know when I had a vertical c section they cut that muscle an I was never able to lift right again and since he is the only one who can help me, I am very worried...any advice?
he has a terrible diet..I heard him give a shopping ,list to my brother when he thought he would be home that night when they thought it was not ruptured and it was nothing but processed meat, sweets, junk food. in 20 items, he had not one healthy thing on it.
I am hoping to use this as a wake up call to get him eating better.
Anyway, I posted this about getting a cat scan as one does not want to think they are ok when actually have a ruptured appendix and risk dying like him or wind up with parts of your intestines gone.
It was not the symptoms that got him to a hosptial and saved his life but an unrelated severe uti that changed his urine color drastically that was unrelated to the appendicitis
So do natural but consider having it verified so one could actually be walking around like a time bomb ready to die any 2nd and not realize their appendix is not only bad but actually ruptured...Pain will not also warn us.
if you suspect it is that but feel you healed yourself naturally and that nothing is wrong..or that severe symptoms will alert you think again
Better safe than sorry. This incident that just took lace and all the worry and stress he would die put 5 years on me
We all just thought he had a weak system or was nuts as everything made him sick and apparently made food taste bad as he said everything that horrible when it didn't and that was why food made him sick and he was up all night vomiting. We never suspected in a 1000 years it as a ruptured appendix and that one could actually like with this and not die or know 100% I must get to the hosptial.
Maybe MRI can detect this and it is safer than cat scan as no radiation.
And any advice that might help him heal from surgery and be able to lift again please send it my way as having a very hard time gettign to appts and stores etc without him due to inability to get wheelchair in and out of car due to being too heavy. I am not even sure he will be able to push it again.
We are grateful he is alive but I know he needs to eat better..I only hope he will change his dietary ways. The link also talks about prevention.
Hello Heidi89, I just wanted to say thank you for posting your experience with appendicitis. It already helped me twice, 5 months ago when I 1st got appendicitis myself, I read a few articles for self cure but yours was the most easy to fallow and you explain things very well and I was cured in 4 days, on my 5th day I went back to work and like I said this was about 5 months ago but 4 days ago it happen again, I started to have the same symptoms, I couldn't believe it, I felt very dumb for not keeping a more strict and healthy diet after what happened, so I endured another 12 hours of intense pain and vomit ( that felt like Chinese torture) and started the whole regimen again.Right now my appendix finally starts to feel good again, now I'm afraid that this might keep happening again, I read a few sites and they all say that there is no way to prevent it but I think if we do some life changes we might be able to, the reason the appendix gets inflammated is from obstruction that could be mostly caused by: fecaliths (tiny pop rocks), obstruction of undigested seeds or parasites. so I think that by eating healthier, avoiding constipation, adding more fiber, healthy oil or fats as you mention and garlic daily and a squatty potty ( the one with the ice cream unicorn) might help prevent for this problem to occur again. hopefully. and thank's again. You are Awesome!!!
I have always had problems with constipation for most of my life - I suppose never drinking enough water and drinking junk never helped.
Well, since I follow alternative medicine and have been searching for ways to heal myself of other health problems I have done a lot of research, including on Curezone.
I recently bought a "zapper" which is for cleaning your body of parasites, etc.
Also, I have done a lot of reading regarding oxygen therapies of all types. Food grade hydrogen peroxide is something you should ALL look into and OZONE is another MUST in your life.
I recently bought a "water ozonator" - there are many of them on the internet and there is also a forum here will you can get info and support for ozonating your water.
Well, this is a little machine which has a tube which you put into a container of water - you let it run and all the while it ozonates the water, meaning it puts pure oxygen/ozone into the water. Well, I do about 1/2 quart at a time and I let it run for about 20 minutes or so. Sometimes, I just forget it and it runs longer - all the while it is putting ozone into your air and boy, you can smell the wonderful, clean fresh smell, like after a summer shower.
Now, for the constipation part - well, I read a post on the "oxygen therapy" forum from someone who also ozonates his water in about a quart at a time and then drinks it all at once over about a 15 to 20 minute period of time. He mentioned how this, this, eventually, CLEANS HIM OUT TOTALLY - AND HE MENTIONED HE HAD HAD PROBLEMS WITH CONSTIPATION ALSO BUT SINCE DRINKING OZONATED WATER, THIS MAKES HIM HAVE VERY BIG, CLEANSING BOWEL MOVEMENTS.
WELL, THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING TO ME AS WELL - I HAVE ABOUT A QUART OF THIS WATER EVERY NIGHT AND IF I DON'T DRINK AT LEAST HALF A QUART OR MORE IT MAY NOT WORK. WELL, TONIGHT I HAVE TO TELL YOU ALL (AND THIS IS SO EMBARASSING BUT I MUST TELL YOU BECAUSE WE ALL LEARN FROM ONE ANOTHER) I HAD THE BIGGEST BOWEL MOVEMENT I HAVE ENVER HAD. NOT ONLY WAS IT SOMETHING LIKE 2.5 TO 3 FEET LONG (IF YOU CAN BELIEVE THIS) BUT IT LOOKED LIKE IT HAD GRABBED MATERIAL FROM THE WALLS OF MY COLON - I DON'T KNOW HOW TO JUSTIFY WHY I THINK THIS - I CANNOT FIND THE WORDS TO EXPLAIN BUT, WHEN I LOOKED THAT IT WHAT CAME TO MY MIND IMMEDIATELY.
I WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER GO WITHOUT MY OZONATED WATER EVER AGAIN.
DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR AND BUY A WATER OZONATOR - GO TO THE "OXYGEN THERAPY" FORUM ON THIS SITE AND READ.
LET ME KNOW IF ANY OF YOU GET RESULTS ........... OR IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.
GOOD HEALTH - STAY AWAY FROM ANIMAL PRODUCTS AND DRINK PLENTY OF OZONATED WATER!
can you recommend a good, yet reasonably priced ozonator. I know that you are not supposed to breathe in ozone for some reason, is this a concern, i don't want to bring something into my house that causes harmful fumes. thanks for any info you can provide.
Ozone is wonderful for you - there are no fumes - these is just ozone generated from the bubbles in the water which the machine is generting - \\
I bought mine from a company in Canada - cannot remember the name - just do a search on "water ozonator" and you will find it. Ozone is good for you, in more ways than one - I drink at least two quarts a day and without it I would not have the daily bowel movements I have now - also, magnesium is also a must have in your daily supplements of at least 400 mg or more.
Could you let us know about how long it took for you to get the results you mentioned. Sue has had a history of constipation which indicates to me a toxic colon. As you mentioned with the 1 quart of ozonated water (we have an Enaly) and 400 mg of Magnesium...this will cleanse the colon (rid it of matter that doesn't belong). I suspect the same result for the small intestine, too? Did you take any acidophilus? By the way, we have done Hulda Clark 's protocol for parasite cleansing (Zapper and ), kidney cleanse, liver cleanses (4 flushes). After doing these, Sue was having one (at least) BM per day. Our diet is clean (vegan-in Sue's case for about a year, in my case for about 20 years and I have 2-3 BM's per day), but Sue does smoke (7-10 cigarettes per day) and has 1-2 cups of very weak coffee per day. This doesn't help, I'm pretty sure. Anyway, after doing a master cleanse (10 days), her system went back into constipation mode. So we got some " Oxypowder " and that worked great (3-5 BM's per day)...but that is way too expensive to stay on that. So this brings us to the now moment by trying your protocol as you described. Thanks for your help!
All I can say is that I too have had a history of constipation - I too have taken the Oxypowder and yes, how much can you take - it is so expensive - and, I understand it is nothing more than oxygenated magnesium.
Well, I too have been on a parasite cleanse and all I know is that when I was doing my zapping every night with the paddles (I now use the terminator all day long) but, when I used the paddles for 10 on 20 off and more and a quart or more of oxygenated water (the machine going on for about half an hour) and, AND, around 500 mgs of magnesium, well, that was a BM!!!!!!!!
I do know tha the magnesium always helps me go - without the magnesium I do not see results even though I am vegetarian, etc.
So, I thought I should tell everyone what happened in case it could shed some light on someone's problems and perhBaps what they could do.
Be well and take your magnesium, and water, and zap, ////////////......
Thanks for the information. About how long were you doing all this (zapping, ozonated water and magnesium) before you saw results. Was it immediate, a week or longer? You mentioned the "terminator"....where did you get it and do you know if it is built from Hulda Clark 's plans? Thanks much again for your help!
Hi, I have been addicted to doing colemas. I am going to try the ozonated water and mag. And I was wondering, do you know whether an Energy Wellnes rife machine will work on parasites just as well as the zapper?
Im hopefull your ozone +magnesium combo will help me to.
I've drank 3 quarts of ozonated water a day for 2 weeks now,
but nothing much happens,apart from the normal bowel movement.
Can you please tell me what kind of magnesium you use,do you just
pop the pill(no grinding up or anything )and do you take the pill
just prior to drinking the ozonated water?
I wonder if Epsom-salt=Magnisium sulfate will work also?
Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for this post. I have been doing enemas for 12 yrs I am so constipated with lyme and parasites. I can only move bowels with tons of vitamin C. I will try 1/2 quart for 20 min. and would LOVE if this would work for me. Thank you!
Hi guys. I found a cure for seborrheic dermatitis and in this article I am going to tell you about a real cure.
Introduction- I am Yash 17 running from India .
#Journey-I am suffering from Seborrheic dermatitis from 1 and half years . Almost 6-7 months I didn't know that I had it. When I came to knew ,same process as everyone sufferring from seborrheic dermatitis go through. I mean dermatologist ,medicated shampoo ,steroids etc.
Fast forward-Then I started to search for its cure. I came through many things which all of us comes. Like most probably Candida . :-P I never had candida (because i also had symptoms like very bad otching and constipation) but alternative medicine and people connected almost all diseases with it so i believed. After many herbal antifungals and diflucan(fluconazole) with no success. Still seborrheic dermatitis was present. Then,I went to my home ( I am student live in another city) . Seeing my bad itchibg and breakouts my parents took me to physician who diagnosed me with Scabies. (I knew i never had candida but still believed).
Treatment was- Scabicides, antibiotics and only 3 very low dosage steroid injections. I was amazed with scabies, seb derm had also gone. I had very smooth bowels. But after 15-20 days to treatment it came back so does constipations and other digestive problems.
#Details 1st- I have seb derm on scalp , very low on face and ears. Had digestive problems.
Now after searching countless of hours. 7 days before I have come to know real cause of my seb derm. It is SIBO ( small intestine bacterial overgrowth). It also causes leaky gut and Gut nerve damage. It is main cause behind IBS C and D (constipation amd diarrhea). SIBO is also of two types :- C and D. I have Sibo C. It is the cause of Seb derm amd it is also published in one or two medical studies.(for those who don't believe in alternative med)
My present treatment and message to sufferers:-
Rifaximin-400mg three times a day (it is narrow spectrum antibiotic which only absorbs in small intestine,it doesn't affect intestinal flora. FYI, small intestine has very low number of bacterias that also of not much use) . For both Sibo IBS D and C.
Metronidazole- 400 mg two times a day.
Neomycin - I didn't find it here in india so i am taking Metronidazole. But if you find it take 1000 mg 3 times a day . It is also narrow spectrum.
For gut motility(as sibo damage gut nerves) -You can take any Prokinetic drug. I take Ginger, Mosapride and erythromycin (50 to 60 mg) For Intestinal permeability - I am taking L-Glutamine(atleast 15g) , MSM- (3-8 g) , NAC, Fish Oil and ordered Zinc carnosine. I aslo take Keraglow for hair as it provides important B vitamins and minerals. P.S - My Seborrheic dermatitis has more than 90% vanished in just 5-7 days.
Disclaimer- As I stated very above I am from India english is my third language and I am not even adult.
Edit:- Dont use probiotics if you have SIBO. It is a bacterial overgrowth whether the bacteria is good or bad it doesn't matter. Yes ,they do help temprory but for cure don't use probiotics.
