Sesame Shaped Flecks In My Stool
I have had fatigue for 11 years. For at least 4 years I've quite often had white sesame shaped flecks in my stool.
Upon touch inspection the sesame shaped things are quite hard like seeds. They are not obviously caused from any particular diet, medication, or allergy as far as I have been able to see.
There is also pain, sometimes very intense or often mild burning pain from lower abdomen on right side (especially after caffeine which I very rarely consume), more under lung but sometimes felt up to the chest.
Heavy fatigue, watery eyes, light-headedness, occasional phlegm in stool and slight brain fog feel possibly inter-connected.
I've had a bloated stomach for 10 years. Once even after a 10 day fast as soon as I ate, within a day bloated shape was back.
I have been following vegetarian diet for this period and take care with digestion, food combinations, ayurvedic herbs, etc.
I've had tests for parasites in India a few times but nothing got rid of these systems, feeling very physically tired for long time.
I had albendazole, cypro, and metrodizanole ..In UK three years ago a test showed high oesinophil count.
Would you know what all these symptoms might be? I'm feeling desperate and depressed because of the fatigue and watching my life roll by with no answers.
Could it be a hard to detect parasite? I notice that tear-shaped or sesame shaped flecks in my stool is described by people on health forums but there doesn't seem to be answers.
I am very grateful for any help.
I'm not a medical doctor, only a natural health advocate, so I can only give you my suggestions based on my research into natural health principles.
Some parasites do have the appearance you described as "sesame shaped flecks in my stool." Unfortunately, parasites can be difficult to detect, so that is not surprising if they aren't showing up in tests of stool samples.
You certainly seem to have some type of digestive disorder. Whether the initial cause is from parasites or some other problem, a good digestive cleanse and immune system building program may help you.
When your digestive system is not functioning properly, you can't absorb the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients from the foods and supplements you consume. As a result, this malabsorption can affect your health in many ways.
Normally I recommend Herbal Fiberblend
as a very effective but gentle cleanse. HFB contains a combination of psyllium fiber and 17 different herbs.
The herbs help to remove and eliminate parasites, fungus, bacteria, mucus, and impacted fecal matter that line your intestinal tract and get it back into healthy functioning order.
A three month cleanse is a good way to start, but if you have chronic and continual problems, HFB can be used on a daily basis, indefinitely, to maintain healthy digestive function.
You can also consider taking digestive enzymes to help with the bloating if the HFB is not sufficient. Prepzymes is a good digestive enzyme as well as Papaya and Pineapple Bromelain. You just take them along with your meals.
To boost and strengthen your immune system, you need to be sure to take some good quality probiotics. Probiotics are the "good bacteria" that live in your intestines and help to fight off the bad bacteria. I prefer Florafood
, but you can use any high quality probiotic that contains a combination of acidophilus, longum, and bifidum if possible.
Finally, give your body as much rich nutrition as you can. I like to use whole food supplement powders
because of their quality and convenience, but you can juice vegetables yourself if you prefer. Choose things like carrots, beets, spinach, barley grass, etc.
One of the newest whole food supplement powders on the market made from freshly juiced barley grass, spinach, field pea, and faba bean is called Leaf Greens
. I use it myself, but I also have spoken to other users who have found it extremely helpful for chronic fatigue.
I realize you are feeling pretty discouraged about your health, but I'm a firm believer in giving your body as much natural help as possible so that it has the tools it needs to heal itself.
Herbal Fiberblend (and the other supplements) is available for sale in several countries, but not India. You may be able to have it sent over from the UK or South Africa. If you still have friends in the UK, your best option may be just to get it sent to them and have them post it to you.
If you are unable to purchase the Herbal Fiberblend, the herbs you should most consider getting for cleansing are wormwood (from the Artemisia shrub - artemisia absinthum), black walnut hulls (from the black walnut tree - juglans nigra), and cloves (from the clove tree - eugenia caryophyllata).
The first two kill adult parasites and the cloves kill the babies and eggs to help prevent re-infestation. If you don't use a combo, you'll probably have difficulty getting them all. The cloves also reduce pain.
I hope this helps you find some relief. I'm sorry I can't be of more help. Please let me know if you have further questions and I'll see if I can locate more information for you. To your good health!
