Sesame Shaped Flecks In My Stool

by Dev

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.

Hi Dev,

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!

these flecks you are seeing are segments of an adult is almost impossible to detect the parasite through testing. I have heard of a few at home treatments and they sound unpleasant. the first is to take a milk bath, the parasite seeks out the sugars and fats in the milk and will literally wiggle out of your body to access the milk, it will than drown. you may have to repeat the milk bath several times a day for a few days to encourage the worm to vacate. keep your body relaxed while it exits, if you tense up it will retreat back into your rectum. the other i will not post because i believe they are dangerous. i would advise going to the doctor and showing them a picture of tape worm segments from the internet and telling them that is what you are seeing in your stool. they will give you a pill or a shot of a medication to kill the parasite.

rope worm
by: JD

several months ago i noticed hard black sesame looking things in my poop. food would also be pretty undigested.

i decided to try a parasite cleanse. i'm now on my 4th round of Paragone and have been able to identify the parasite exiting my body as a rope worm. it doesn't look like any other parasite i've been reading about. its most definitely that.

try taking a parasite cleanse, eat clean and see if you can identify what it is. from what i hear its a long journey getting rid of these things.

Sesame Seed Parasites
by: Anonymous

I've had them for years and they've become more prevelant. I went to the Dr. a few years back, she tested and said no parasites and that I probably didn't realize I ate sesame seeds but I looked closely, these suckers literally have suckers if you look really close.

Now today, i had something really strange pass that looks like the sloughing off of a large nematode of some kind. My stomach has been hurting a lot.

I'm going to take high doses of Agrisept to get rid of this shit once and for all. I've only taken one dose for it and I had major stomach pain and sloughing off. Looki into Agrisept, non chemical and it really seems to work!

Intestinal Flukes
by: Angie

I don't believe that these sesame seed shaped flecks in the stool are a form of lice. The most likely assumption is that they are internal worms.

I know that sounds horrifying, but it's really not that uncommon to have intestinal flukes or parasites. However, you really do need to do something about it and not just let it go.

There are plenty of good quality natural parasite cleanses on the market these days. I prefer and use Herbal Fiberblend for this purpose.

I sincerely hope you will do a good cleanse so that these parasites don't continue to grow and thrive in your body. Although they may not be causing you major problems now, they can in future if they aren't cared for.

That's lice that went internal
by: Anonymous

Dev I have that too. Did you have headlice at some point? Those specks are lice. I noticed this during and after a headlice infestation. There is a new breed of lice that go internal. What do we do??? Email me:
this is bound to become an epidemic problem is it will take years for anyone to discover. I have an infant as well and I noticed a pin shaped small cyst in his anal area. I squeezed it out and I know it was eggs. So now lice is living inside of us.
