Gastroenterology/white spots in stool

Question
QUESTION: hi just a couple quick questions. I am currently 30 years old I don't have any pre-existing conditions except for GER DE and IBS I take no medication, on and off for the past couple of weeks I have been finding small white chunks of white material that are relatively small none bigger than the size of a Pea, I was curious so I took one out to analyze it appears to be waxy and solid the whole way through, I have no other symptoms. I'm wondering what it could be caused by everything I read says it's possible it's parasites and they have not eaten any uncooked are raw food or anything undercooked. Thank you for your time.

ANSWER: Dear Doug,

GERD and IBS are the functional diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Please, do not kill the messenger.

First, that came to my mind is that white material can be:
•   Indigested foods
•   Candida-yeast (Candida Albicans means white yeast)
•   Indigested tablets or capsules
•   Part of the tapeworm

Ask your doctor about stool test, especially use the stool with the white material.

Have good health.

QUESTION: Alright well I think I can rule out piece of a tapeworm because I think that would be relatively soft. I checked again and it's getting less prevalent but they are actually white pieces of hardish matter like hard wax. Anything you know that would cause that? Again thank you.

Answer
  
,Dear Doug
Personally, I do not believe in IBS. This is “garbage can diagnosis” when we do not know real reasons for symptoms. Typically behind this diagnosis are dysbiosis (Candida-yeast overgrow, SIBO), lower function of the pancreas and bile, deficiencies (vitamins D, C, B-12, essential fatty acids, etc), parasites, inner toxicity and bad eating habits.

If you want to know more about functional GI conditions, read my EBook “Healthy Pancreas, Healthy You”, part 1. Read functional disorders. Pancreas is core of proper digestion. http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/236176#longdescr Go to functional disorders.

If something serious or nagging symptoms will persist and you believe in the non-drug treatment, contact me.

I wish you good health without white stuff in the stool.
