This morning, my stool was a series of hardened and rounded...hmm, what should I call them? Turds, I suppose. But anyway, one of them was floating (which happens fairly frequently) and when I looked closer, I noticed that it had a white ring of stuff around it. It was gelatinous and mucousy-looking, and stringy. What is this, and why would it be in my stool? I know I have irritable bowel problems and have for some time now. But my question is: WHY? Is it yeast, is it parasites, what on earth is causing all the seemingly unrelated issues? I'm going to try and have both candida and parasites
tested as soon as I see my new doctor on the 22nd (who is a naturopath). Is there a comprehensive stool or blood test that will check for ALL possible parasites? What about for candida? How can I determine FOR SURE what is causing all these physical and emotional symptoms? Please help!
