Hi everyone,
I have been doing a lot of reading on parasites. Some testimonies I've read involve people who have passed 7-10" tapeworms in their stool!! What does this look like? Is it a real worm? I have seen flecks of white in my stool before......I'm assuming this wasn't a worm. Anyone ever experience this?

Hi Susanne,

I have also heard about people passing tapeworms through their stool. I have heard they are clear looking (but I'm not positive...just something I heard). The people that I know, however, were putting their bodies through a strict "cleansing". But that cleansing can be very bad for you, because it can strip the body of it's nutrients and it can take months just to recover.

But cleansing can get rid of the worms, which can live in the body. But they normally don't harm you. And if they are harming you, I'm sure a doctor would be able to help assist the patient with a solution. But there's really no need to worry about tapeworms and parasites <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Take care! -Jacinta
