I Eliminated Pseudomembranes?

I think I did. Here is pseudomembranous colitis:
I got these images from this web site. See those yellow-white patches? The doctor referred to them as "pseudomembranes". They are embedded on top of a thick, pink gelatinous material, which the doctor is ignoring and I think should also be referred to as a pseudomembrane. Now take a look at what I eliminated using the NAC cleanse:
You will see a few white patches embedded on top of a thick gelatinous material. It's not very severe. But I think technically speaking they are pseudomembranes. Note that the thick gelatinous material can't possibly be the psyllium I ingested because there are no psyllium flecks.

A More Reasonable Explanation For a Peculiar Piece of Mucoid Plaque I Once Eliminated

Sometime after that bizarre experience I had with apple juice, I tried Richard Anderson's cleansing program . Although it was slow and frustrating, I managed to remove substantial chunks of mucoid plaque. Here is a peculiar one that I eliminated:
I'm looking at this and thinking that both sides don't know what they are talking about — I don't see anything in the photo that looks like feces, and you know as well as I that neither psyllium nor bentonite comes out looking like that. Look how black it is. Richard Anderson thinks the colors you see there has something to do with bile.[1] I have a more reasonable explanation I think.

That black stuff, I submit to you, is not black bile, one of the four humors of the body; it is liquified eschar, and it's mixed in with mucus and exudate. Necrotic tissue does in fact liquefy and mix in with exudate.[2] And experiments have shown that when albumin, a major component of exudate, is mixed in with mucus, it forms mucin-albumin complexes that is substantially more viscous than mucus or albumin alone [3] — that's what that amber jelly-like material on the left is I think. Now Forstner demonstrated that when a mucus-albumin mixture is exposed to an acidic pH (4.5 or lower), it forms into a dense white precipitate.[4] I'm guessing that's what all this white stuff might be:
What you see there is an endoscopy of a colon with acute ischemic colitis.[5] See that small black area on the right? I'm thinking that's an area at which enzymes, produced during active inflammation, dissolved away the mucus-exudate mixture that was covering up the liquified eschar underneath. If degration of the mucus-exudate mixture were to continue, I believe more of the liquified eschar (which itself is mixed in with mucus and exudate) will be revealed. Eventually, it could rehydrate and swell up to many times its own size and slough away from the mucosa resulting in a peculiar elimination such as the one I once eliminated.


[1] On page 93 of his book Cleanse and Purify Thyself, Book 2: Secrets of Radiant Health and Energy he writes: "In color, mucoid plaque can be gray, yellow, green or light green, or light brown to black, but often is blackish green, which may indicate a relationship to bile."

[2] On page 575 of the third edition of Today's Medical Assistant: Clinical & Administrative Procedures it says: "A purulent exudate contains pus, which consists of leukocytes, dead liquefied tissue debris, and dead and living bacteria." Also, on page 315 of the fourth edition of Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing it says: "Exudate from sloughing necrotic tissue is commonly attached to or connected with the necrotic debris . . . Liquefied necrotic tissue occurs most often as a result of enzymatic or autolytic debridement."

A Rock Wall Pattern of the Mucosa

I think I found a smoking gun. Here is an endocopy picture of someone's intesines I found on the web:
Notice that the mucosa has a rock wall pattern. Now here is a piece of mucoid plaque I eliminated using the NAC cleanse :
Zoom in on the left side of it — you will see a rock wall pattern. Here, I will zoom in on it for you:
See the rock wall pattern? It's the same pattern you see in the endoscopy picture. Neither psyllium nor bentonite produces this pattern. The whole area you see in that endoscopy picture is mucoid plaque, and the whole medical profession is too dumb to recognize it.

A Bizarre Experience I Had With Apple Juice

Many years ago I had a very unusual experience involving apple juice. The very first cleanse I ever did was actually Robert Gray's Holistic Horizons program. I followed the instructions exactly, but it was very disappointing — I didn't eliminate any mucoid plaque. However, I would go on to discover later that if I move up the levels faster than Robert Gray recommends, I could eliminate substantial chunks of mucoid plaque in a similar harsh manner as Richard Anderson's program. But for now I had to wait a few months (Robert Gray says that his herbs will become ineffective if you take them for too long at a time). So I looked for a non-herbal based cleanser to take in the meantime.

I found something. It was in a small book called "Dr. Christopher's Three-Day Cleansing Program, Mucusless Diet and Herbal Combinations". In his book Dr. Christopher described a three day fast involving ingesting nothing but apple juice, prune juice, and a little olive oil throughout the day.

Being the minimalist that I am, I quickly did away with the prune juice, olive oil, and fasting. In the morning, on an empty stomach, I would drink one glass of pasteurized organic bottled apple juice. That's it. I didn't ingest any prune juice or olive oil. And I didn't fast either. Actually, I fasted in the morning, but I ate a strict mucusless diet for lunch and dinner. In the morning, when I drank the apple juice, something truly bizarre would happened. A couple of minutes after drinking it, I experienced an extreme chronic pain in my abdomen. It was very intense; it was the same type of pain as being kicked in the gonads. It would last a few minutes then go away. Immediately after it went away, I would have an urge to have a bowel movement. While on the toilet, I evacuated massive amounts of amber globs. It came out as pure globs, unmixed with any feces. Here is a picture I took of one of these evacuations:
Just so that you understand the scale, it is within a large round plastic container about a foot diameter — these globs were massive. It is the only photo I took of it. It is some of the later globs. As I recall, the earlier globs looked just like this but were a lighter gold color amber.

Anyway, this would occur every two or three days for a couple months. Every two or three days I drank one small glass of apple juice, it caused intense pain, and massive amounts of amber globs came out. After a couple months it no longer occurred and my severe chilliness, my heart weakness/palpitations, my complete inability to have a bowel movement without having to take a suppository, as well as some other problems all miraculously went away and never came back.

It looks like Richard Anderson had a similar experience as I did — on page 86 of his book Cleanse & Purify Thyself Book One he said that during the first two cleanses it is common to see "amber or dark green, jelly-like goop" come out. He thought this stuff was "lymph". I think he got this idea from Dr. Christopher and Robert Gray. On page 5 of his book, Dr. Christopher said that his apple juice cleanse will break up mucus, or "catarrh" as he also called it, resulting in approximately three gallons of "toxic lymph" being eliminated. On page 23 of his book The Colon Health Handbook Robert Gray expanded upon this idea of a toxic lymph. He said that during fasting, body cells throw off "toxins", which are forced into the lymph where a mucoid substance (catarrh) is formed to hold them in suspension.

Dr. Christopher and Robert Gray are confused about human anatomy — the lymphatic system doesn't have a mucous membrane, thus it can't possibly produce mucus or catarrh. Robert Gray spoke of a lymph drain massage originating from ancient China that causes mucus from the lungs to drain into the intestines via the lymphatic system. But I had no chest congestion, and it is absurd to think that these massive globs could possibly fit inside anybody's lungs. It had to have originated from my gastrointestinal tract — remember, that's where I had my pain, and the gastrointestinal tract has a mucous membrane. During mucosal inflammation, exudate leaches from blood vessels located in the lamina propria and mixes in with the adherent mucus layer. That's what catarrh is; it's a mixture of mucus and exudate.

Albumin is the predominant component of exudate and has an amber color. I've been looking at bottles of albumin — some have a gold color, and some have an orange color. This is precisely the color of the globs I eliminated — the earlier globs (which I didn't take a picture of) were a gold color, and the later globs were a light to dark orange color. Experiments have shown that when albumin mixes in with mucus, it forms mucin-albumin complexes that is dramatically more viscous than mucus or albumin alone. As you might recall, Arnold Ehret, in his book Mucusless Diet Healing System, spoke alot about mucus and albumin (he used the word "albumen"). This is because his doctor diagnosed him as having Bright's disease with excess mucus and albumin in his urine. Arnold Ehret discovered that fasting on fruit dissolved and eliminated it — he thought it was either the sugar or acid in the fruit that was responsible for this effect.

The reason I gave this story to you in the context of having had taken Robert Gray's formula is because I'm thinking that his formula may have loosened up the mucoid cap allowing the apple juice to do what it did. I don't know. Maybe not. Whatever the case may be, I diagnosed myself as having systemic candidiasis — some people think that yellow or brown mucus in the stool can be a symptom of it. At this point in time, I take apple juice with the N-Acetyl Cysteine because I notice that, at rare times, the apple juice causes the same pain in the abdomen, except that it is very, very mild. It only does this when I take a "real" cleanser like NAC along with it. The apple juice just seems to give it a little extra kick sometimes.


No Psyllium Flecks in Mucoid Plaque I Eliminated

I just realized something. The type of psyllium that I have been using for awhile now is whole psyllium husks. It's littered with flecks. Take a look:
What you see there is whole psyllium husks and water that I let dry a little bit. If, as skeptics claim, the mucoid plaque I eliminated is simply the whole psyllium husks I ingested, I should see these flecks in the mucoid plaque. But I don't see any:
This proves very well I think that the skeptics are wrong. Mucoid plaque is not psyllium.

Introducing The N-Acetyl Cysteine Cleanse

I know what you are thinking. Richard Anderson's cleanse program is obnoxiously pricey. That is not the only problem with it. His herbal formula is proprietary — he refuses to divulge the exact recipe, and you can only get it from him. Another problem is that the effectiveness of his herbal formula will wear off very quickly if you take it too often. I found this to be very inconvenient and time consuming.

I found another way.

In the morning on an empty stomach, I take 600mg N-Acetyl Cysteine with a glass of apple juice and some cayenne pepper (swallow NAC pill with apple juice first, then ingest cayenne pepper so cayenne pepper won't make you choke on pill). I don't eat until at least a couple of hours later. When I do eat (for lunch and supper), I eat a strict mucusless diet. I also take a dose of psyllium once or twice a day that is at least three hours away from each other and at least one and one half hours away from the supplements. I take enemas as needed.

It works spectacularly well — even better than Richard Anderson's cleanse program I think. I've seen it remove substantial chunks of mucoid plaque that his cleanse program failed to remove. If you choose to swallow the red pill then click here to see some pictures I took of some of it.

Even though the active ingredient is the N-Acetyl Cysteine, it is just as important I think to take the cayenne pepper and apple juice with it. I could swear that the cayenne pepper makes it work better. I think Richard Anderson is right that cayenne pepper acts as a catalyst increasing the effectiveness of other herbs taken with it. Concerning the apple juice, I have a story to tell you about it. But that's for another post. For now it is sufficient to say that it gives it a little extra kick sometimes. And be sure you eat a strict mucusless diet or else it won't work good.

This N-Acetyl Cysteine Cleanse is a respectable alternative, I think, to herbal based cleansers: (a) it only costs me 12 US dollars a month (b) it is non-proprietary — the recipe is open sourced, and you can get the ingredients from a pharmacy you trust (c) while abstaining from taking herbal based cleansers you can take this in the meantime and vice versa.

Some of you know where I got this idea from. Wallace and Whittle used N-acetylcysteine to disintegrate mucoid cap that they experimentally made to form over ex vivo chambered gastric rat mucosa. This convinces me more than ever that the so-called mucoid plaque that cleansers remove is actually mucoid cap.


A Thick, Rubbery, Ropey Material On The Colon?

Take a look at this:

I got this from clinicalgate. It's a dissection of the colon. I recall skeptics a while back saying that gastroenterologists only see blood vessels and clean tissue like this:

when they peer into the colon. I feel like I am being gaslighted. Let's do some reality testing. I don't see any blood vessels or ridges in the dissection. But what I do see is a thick, rubbery material. The pathologist who commented about this dissection did not mention this abnormality as if it is normal. Instead, the pathologist said there was a moderate amount of chronic inflammation in the lamina propria, which is a layer of the mucosa just below the epithelium. Look at the bottom part of the dissection. You see a tan/pink, rubbery, ropy material. Is that mucoid rope? The overwhelming majority of the mucoid rope I observed coming out of me was a light brown color.
