Strange algie like blobs wrapped around fatty tissue in stool

I've recently found little blobs of white fatty-like tissue wrapped in what looks like algie, or vibrant green strands. The white tissue substance that the green strands are wrapped around isn't mucous because when it was pressed against for texture (yes I inspected it because it was something so strange I had to take a sample to my doctor, to which he's never seen anything like this before either), the white blob like substance is firm in texture.

Also, for history. Since June 2008, after I got back from Playa Del Carmen, Mexico from a week vacation, I had the runs *very* badly for 7 days straight. I took a few Imodium, and the runs turned into the complete opposite and I was blocked for another 5 days, with only an enema helping unblock me (along with some lactulose). My gut has been upturned ever since, never knowing whether or not its going to be diareah, or if I have glass going through my intestines. The doctor things maybe Crohns, Celiacs, IBS... a large number. Sent one parasite test in so far with no results. I brought the sample in to the doctor and he was stumped since he's never seen this in his career. I've also been quite ill since as well, asthma is out of control, I get every cold that exists, migraines, *severe* sinus infections to the point that I need a minimum of traumacet to manage the pain.

My doctor feels like discovering what this is may be the key to what's been causing me to get more and more ill. Please, if anyone has any knowledge of this, I need to know. I'm fairly scared after seeing this.

Oh yeah, I don't eat grass, or algae or anything weird that looks like what you saw there...

Thank you if you know anything.

There is a testimonial in the front of Sally Fallon and Mary Enig's book entitled 'Nourishing Traditions' that reads something like this.....'This book is a work of genius.....richly encyclopedic.....Run, don't walk to the nearest 'phone and order it.'

I suggest you do that, because no matter what your ailment is it must come down ultimately to poor diet and you need to sort it out quickly before it develops into a major problem. I would guess that the balance between your intake of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids is way out of line and you need to inform and educate yourself quickly. The imbalance of these two fatty acids leads to inflammation of the cells in your body and that can manifest itself in many forms of illness, including bowel problems.

No need to run to order it. Find it on Amazon.

Good luck, kennyboy.

Re: Strange algie like blobs wrapped around fatty tissue in stool

first, how strange that it is wrapped, and it is, i know - had same thing happen few times over past year or so - the tissue wrapped in my situation was white, stringy, and wrapped several times around the stool. i took photos in order to show a doctor. in my case, i do know this - i have been abusing my poor stomach with a lot of alchohol and red bull over many years. i have had excruciating diaherrea as you described after such abusive evenings, increasingly over the past year 1/2 and if i try solid foods within 12 hours of the drinking i pay dearly and almost pass out from the pain, while im vomiting and having diaherrea. i had began taking over the counter sleeping meds around the time my stomach got worse. obviously it is an acid issue and i know i've been really slamming my system. for me, the issue only exists around the matter of alchohol
