My colonoscopy was done on 27 June, 2012 when a polyp showed signs of carcinoma, on 25 JUly2012 another colonoscopy was done, and and the polyp as well all surounding area cleaned up and area marked for future check up. I am told that I do not need an operation, as it is not necessary, and also because I am 81 yrs old. The check up will be done after 6 mts. I am prescribed Metamucel and Lactulos 3 times a day. Would also like to know if there are other suitable medicines.

Just a note re: Metamucil - I believe it contains artificial sweetener e. g. Aspartame which is detrimental to health. The main ingredient, Psyllium husk, can be bought cheaply in the Health section of Coles or Woolies. Lots of raw fruit and veg will assist greatly.

You can try to use activated charcoal, this will bind all kinds of toxins.

Two things that come to mind are a C-Diff infection or Crohn's Disease. Either way, you should start her on an anti-inflamation diet (low carb, NO sugars, NO caffeine... Look online for information by Dr. Perricone). She also needs a strong probiotic every day, at least to replenish her gut bacteria which is being lost in her runny movements. Plain, unsweetened yogurt, kefir, or even probiotic pills are a good place to start. There are some reasonably priced probiotic pills available now at regular drugstores.

I have to say though, extended bouts of runny stool can lead to severe dehydration. Also, any blood in the stool is a SERIOUS problem and needs to be addressed by a good, understanding, knowledgeble gastroinerologist. This is nothing to fool around with! I understand without insurance this is a monsterous proposition, but there are other ways to get support. Contact charity services in your area, she may qualify for assistance. Catholic social services may be a good place to start. They have a long history of providing medical support to those in need.

Take care and good luck!!

Can I suggest that you go out and buy the book "Live Juices" from Dr. H. E. Kirschner. It is available on amazon and is not a new book. It was written in the 1960's. A women in the book was severely anorexic and cured herself by just drinking carrot juice. Carrot juice used to be called a miracle juice. This women drank or ate nothing but carrot juice for about 18 months (she didn't even drink water) and cured her problem and put on weight. Her photos are in the book along with other case studies. Carrot juice used to be known as an antiseptic for the body. It will help the digestive system and kill off the pathogens that are caused the loose stool. It will also put back much needed nutrients into her body. Anyway buy the book and research "the miracle of carrot juice" on the internet.

It also cleanses the blood and puts the body back into an alkaline state. Everyone should drink carrot juice every day. I have 3/4 carrot and 1/4 orange juice.. very tasty.

She could have parasites, infection or a candida issue. I am dealing with the same issue and treating it as a yeast problem since I have that anyway. I have had diarrhea for 9 weeks now. Take colloidal silver for infection, diatomaceous earth for parasites and get off all sugar and yeast products. Protein powder w/o sugar has helped me to keep up my strength. Search the site and look at the symptoms to figure out what she needs to do. What is her history? has she had parasites before? I use Immodium and Kaopectate when I just need help with the diarrhea. It helps a little. Borax and garlic are great for yeast and infection. Look those up also! Praying for your success!

Since your niece is losing weight and having runny stools, she may want to try a gluten free diet. These are symptoms of celiac disease and going gluten free for a few weeks may help.

As others have suggested, this can be caused by many things. Personally I had diarrhea for 5 months and found the root cause to be parasites. To get rid of it completely I had to kill the parasites with a zapper. To provide diarrhea symptom relief I found eating 6 apples a day for several days to help. I did not eat anything else during this time. DIET needs to be addressed for all gut issues and NAET treatments can be very helpful if the person providing them is good.

For some weeks now I've been noticing "carrot-like" chippings in my faeces. I have not visited a doctor because I'm wondering what remedy I can possibly take to rectify this. Has this happened to anyone? If so, what might be the internal cause of this?

Radical: This is likely a case of incomplete digestion, probably due to infection or possibly parasite infestation. I would recommend taking Oregano Oil softgels for a few days then begin Digestive Enzymes plus Probiotics. Two weeks of this regimen should show improvement.

Dear Radical, I have just seen this post so I hope I'm not too late replying to you. I am very familiar with what you describe and I learned it is from intussusception.

Holding your bowels when you get the urge to go or holding in gas when it is not acceptable to expel contributes to this. Each time you do this you can be killing the nerve cells that prompt evacuation. I cannot sit at the PC for long periods as I am full of adhesions due to multiple surgeries so I have more of a problem.

Picture a telescope extended and fill it up with putty then close it. This is how your intestines, small and large can "telescope". The carrot-like fecal matter is coming from the sides but there is still the center that can be collecting matter and stretching, eventually creating an obstruction because the stool becomes too large to pass. This is what can ferment and become toxic, gangrene or malignant. This can stretch out your intestines to the point of becoming as skin on someone who lost a lot of weight. It does not shrink back immediately. This is why there should be a minimum of four hours between meals.

Lying on your back and massaging your abdomen with a rolling-pin motion can help the stool reduce in size (becoming narrower), if soft enough so the stool will move and you can evacuate. Sometimes you will expel gas first and I believe this is the emptied out sides of the "telescoped" intestine. Sometimes you may hear and feel "squishing". This is when you are pushing the central accumulated stool out of the telescoped position.

If stool has become impacted in the "bends" of your pipeline I found being aggressive in breaking-up the "wads" so they are easier to pass. I have wondered if some of this "stool" could even be fibroids.

I have found chugging 1/2 tsp dry mustard in 1/2 C cool water, first thing in the morning before breakfast "primes the pump". Non-dairy probiotics can help, (they need to be taken on an empty stomach with water), sipping solutions of ACV and water (two tsp to two TBSP of the ACV to sixteen ounces of water) throughout the day can help.

I hope this gives you some idea of what may be going on. Maybe not, but this is what I am experiencing. I've had four colonoscopies and each time it got a little worse evacuating. I am done with them.

What is up when one's poop is viridian green?

Know that I am late on this one but if I eat lots of cruciferous veggies like cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts.... Or even spinach, my stool eliminates darkish green. It goes back to normal when I take a break with these types of veggies. I try not to eat the cruciferous veggies days in a row because they do adversely affect the lymph nodes under my neck, they become swollen. I've read that cru veggies can adversely affect the thyroid when over-eaten. I'll do further research on this.

Does anyone have a cure for a twisted colon. I go thru periods of severe cramping. The colon became twisted on it's own so surely there must be a way to untwist it naturally.

Hi Wanda,

Typically, a twisted colon is due to a poor diet. Mostly, lack of fiber but also sometimes it occurs because of a Caesarean section in women. You might want to look at your diet because that is the answer to finding the natural way to help your colon. Start eating a lot more fiber.

Hope this helps you get back your health, Lisa
