I have been having stomach cramps for the last few days. Frothy diarrhea with a bad smell. Also passed something last night that looked like a small white jellyfish. This morning when I went to the bathroom I passed a 12-16 inch worm. It broke apart when I tried to examine it. I have no idea what this could be. I am not on any cleanses. Can anyone help me identify what kind of parasite I have. I am thinking maybe a tapeworm. Thanks so much!!
The jellyfish like mass, could be:
- Parts of a worm,
- Dead juvenile worms wrapped together
You said that you are not on any cleanses, but, did you start eating something recently, that you haven't eaten before, or as much as you had eaten before? Or is there something in your diet, that you suspect, that caused the death of the parasite?
Like, for an example (but not limited to): garlic, onions, ginger, pineapple, grapefruit, sauerkraut, figs, chillies, hot spices, herbs of some kind, supplements of some kind?
It might have been an Ascaris worm. I'm not sure. You should check pictures of Ascaris worm from the internet and see if they look the same. Also check the pictures of tapeworms.
It might be, that when you introduced the black pepper to your diet, that it caught some parasite off guard and it died. Or it might have been the high amounts of garlic, which killed it.
Now, you might want to try Enemas, which LoricaLady already suggested. The Enema bags are cheap and using it isn't really terrible at all, as one might imagine. Try regular warm water enemas and maybe Sea Salt enemas first. http://curezone.com/cleanse/enema/
If you want, Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE) isn't expensive either and is safe to use. DE doesn't harm our Digestive Tract, but if DE comes in contact with a parasite, it damages it's skin and it might die.
You can probably buy DE from your local health stores, or at least from eBay or Amazon. Just make sure it's "Food Grade" Diatomaceous Earth.
After you have evaluated your situation a bit more, you might want to move to herbal cleanses (or drugs).
Thank you so much for your advice. I am awaiting results from my doctors office. I am not especially hopeful that the lab will find anything as I have done some research and found that most hospital labs do not find parasites. I will keep you informed as to what I find out.
It's probably not a worm as they won't break apart. Even Tapeworms will only loose the mature segments at the 'tail' end - the rest of the worm hangs together. Passing large globs of mucus when having diarrhea is not unusual. It is possible that what you saw was a long string of bloody mucus. Blood in the stool usually smells foul.
You may have picked up a virus, an enteric pathogen (bacteria), a Clostridium difficile overgrowth or a protozoan parasite (giardia, amoeba, etc.)
Regardless of what it was that you saw, you and youo loved ones probably have parasites. They are insidious as the devil and lead to many health problems.
See link below for cayenne pepper (using organic powder from the grocery is better than capsules) challenge test to see if you or any loved ones have Tapeworms Sometimes one sees sesame seed looking things, or “blanched almonds” but usually “white rice” in the stools, for example. Many people have found parasites this way, parasites that lab tests said they didn’t have. Hulda Clark says everyone she ever lab tested had tapeworms & everyone had other kinds of parasites as well.
RE parasites, low enemas can help reveal what bugs are dying without any “digging around.” Enema bags are cheap & online or at drug stores. The net has many sites telling how to use them. Use 2 cups filtered water only per bag at a time. You don’t want to go too high and wash away good intestinal bacteria. (On occasion, to relieve really bad constipation, you can go higher, though. Preferably less than one time per week.) Add some plain, no sugar, yogurt with acidophilus, or “live cultures” to the last bag & eat some. This kind of yogurt is easy to find at most grocery stores. The enemas can also help combat the constipation often associated with initial stages of parasite killing and just help speed up the cleansing process in general.
Also, many people are not aware that they are gluten sensitive, maybe even have celiac. A gluten sensitivity test can help. Even if one shows up just at Level 1 in sensitivity, that means the intestinal villi have been damaged & nutrients are not getting through as they should. Also where gluten sensitivity is, candida is probably lurking.
Candida may be lurking regardless. One way you may find it is by doing low enemas, mixing water with apple cider vinegar or 3% hydrogen peroxide. Tea made from Quassia wood chips can also kill some parasites as well as candida. Kefir enemas can also be helpful. Use enemas after a bowel movement. If you see things that look like string cheese or yellow gel, or white things that look like pieces of tissue paper, then you know a candida cleanse needs to be done. (Sometimes the candida looks like dark seaweed or brown crusts with mucous.) Another tip off is that, after you do the enemas you may temporary die off in the form of cold or flu like symptoms or some itchiness. I'd personally get rid of the parasites first. Both cleanses cause die off and you don't want to overdo it. Cleanses do put extra stress on the adrenals.
Some people say everyone who has had antibiotics has candida cleansing to do.
