Question on healing:
For several months, I have been seeing something that looks like cream colored sesame seeds in my stools. They seem to be increasing in quantity. I cannot tie this to any food I have eaten. What could this be?
Healing Facilitation Response:
I can only guess as to what this could be but just from the description, you may have a tapeworm. Little pieces of the worm break off all the time and some have said they looked a bit like sesame seeds. It could be another type of worm as well but I’d say you probably do have a parasite of some kind.
Assuming you have normal colon health other than that, you might consider a colon cleanse that includes parasite cleansing. If you have a cat or dog in the house or one that lives outside but sometimes comes in, you will need to worm them as well.
Typically, a person who has tapeworms gets them from undercooked meat or from pets who live inside or go in and out of the house.
A person can have tapeworms with no symptoms but some potential symptoms of having tapeworms include abdominal distress or pain, weight loss, fatique and either constipation or diarrhea.
