#3325796 Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

I read your pdf. Your pale yellow stools and stringy bits are identical to my stool. I have found a solution to this problem. Please get in touch so I can send you the ebook for you to try. I would be very interested to know why this is happening. I hope my solution, while not a cure, will return you to normal strength and health and weight, as it has me.

ANYONE ELSE WHO HAS PALE STOOL AND SOMETIMES STRINGY, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH. 

 

 

I frequently have long strings and clumps of strings in and around my stools.  When I do an enema lots come out with the water. 

 

I took a picture and told my doctor.  I told him the "strings" looked as if there were whitish-yellowish long worms that had been split and gutted, but sometimes there would be a big clump of them.  He was stumped.

 

Then I saw a gastroenterologist.  He explained that it is normal where there is constipation.  (Which I have, and I see more strings when I haven't been able to eliminate for over a week).  He said it is MUCOUS lining the lower G.I. tract.

 

It's mucous.

I did 4 runs of Accutane. 

 

I also had mercury in my mouth and 5 root canals that I had removed (i.e, extracted)  I also have digestive issues (could only poop hard black pebbles about once every other week) and a bladder infection every 2 weeks which became resistant to other antibiotics so I was put on an open dose of Cipro.  I always got a yeast infection afterward, so I got a round of difluan.  Then I tried to rebuild my gut flora before having to take the another round of Cipro.  Only to do it again, and again, and again for about 7 years. Couple this with escaping an abusive marriage and the stalking seven years later, and getting sued by your abuser for three million bucks (I am not joking) being a single mom for years then supporting a family of 4 on administrative assistant's wages while carrying 4 attorneys kids in college.  Yeah, I know stress.  Physically, emotionally, psychologically, financially, stress has all kinds of ways degrade you.   

 

I came back to this board 3 years after I spent thousands on some scar revisions treatments. Only to get cystic acne. Again. Then try to undo what my body has been through, and coming back to report the things that did, and didn't, for me.

 

Is this still the place to do that?  If so... I have about 80 more pages to read of this very long thread.  Secondly, I found Indigo's and Chino's posts incredibly insightful and from the heart.  The two of you, and a couple other people that started this thread are BRILLIANT.  Gorgeous writers. 

 

There ARE answers.  I believe I have stumbled upon a few.   

 

Like you I feel like I have "done it all"... vegan/vegetarian for 12 years, every "cycline" known to man, every blood cleansing herb, Boiron pellet, apple cider toning, sweating, not sweating, accupuncture, liver, kidney, and parasite cleanses... then 4 rounds of Accutane.  It is disparaging. But not a loss.  Do you sometimes wonder if you would be half as beautiful and brilliant had you not been blessed with acne? 

 

But right now, for the first time, I think I have stumbled upon a few things that really work. They are pretty simple.

 

Chino, what is the recipe you were using for juice?  Tell me more about your experiences with juicing, please?

 

Thanks for reading.
