"I Just Pooped Out My Colon"

Someone landed an interview with Richard Anderson some time ago. Check it out. He gives an anecdote about the very first time he eliminated mucoid plaque. He was scared at first. He thought he eliminated a rotten piece of his colon. "Oh my gosh, I'm a goner for sure", he thought, "I just pooped out my colon. I must be so rotten inside that my colon just let loose and came out. I'm a goner for sure"

I submit to you that, in a sense, his first thought was correct. He actually did poop out a rotten piece of his colon.

On page 35 of his book Cleanse & Purify Thyself Book Two he quotes a medical doctor named Percival Lemon Clark. Percival Lemon Clark (1923) criticized the germ theory of disease. He didn't mean to say that germs don't cause sickness. What he meant was that germs are not the ultimate cause of disease. He thought that dead tissue in the gastrointestinal tract was the ultimate cause of disease because it propagates germs. He argued that processed foods and foods eaten in the wrong combination ferment harmfully inside you and cause "wear and tear" all along the gastrointestinal tract. Clark writes:

“It has been proved that all sorts of germs which are capable of existing in injured or dead tissues or wounds are not able to live in the healthy organism . . . A putrid wound has putrefactive fermentation set up in it so that the putrefying foul flesh may be liquified, sloughed off, and carried away in liquid form as pus. This foul dead tissue is rapidly disintegrated by these friendly germs, so that with proper draining by an intelligent physician or surgeon the filth may be washed away and drained out of the wound until healthy tissue is reached, when the germs of putrefaction can no longer live, and disappear.” [1]

He sold an enema as well as a cleanser, he called "Sanatology Blower", he noted for giving the gastrointestinal tract a "dry cleaning".[2]

Richard Anderson, in the very same book he gave the quote, unwittingly shows off a photograph of what Percival Lemon Clark was talking about:

Endoscopic photograph of mucoid plaque. Its from the fourth edition of "Clinical Gastroenterology" by Howard M. Spiro.

It's plate 83 from a textbook called Clinical Gastroenterology. [3] The textbook identifies it as "necrotic mucosa" that is "sloughing off extensively".

Remember Norman Wardhaugh Walker? In 1979 he published a book called "Colon Health: the Key to a Vibrant Life". He argued that feces, along with your own used-up cells and tissue, leave a coating on the walls of the colon causing toxemia. Look what he writes:

“You no doubt have experienced the offensive aroma emanating from the body of an animal which has died and whose carcass has begun to decompose. The cells and tissues in the anatomy undergo the same decomposition when they are allowed to remain in the colon longer than necessary.” [4]

Speaking of dead animals, a prominent Canadian-American gastroenterologist and pharmacologist named Walter Bastedo wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association:

“When one sees the dirty gray, brown or blackish sheets, strings and rolled up wormlike masses of tough mucus with a rotten or dead-fish odor that are obtained by colon irrigations, one does not wonder that these patients feel ill and that they obtain relief and show improvement as the result of the irrigation.” [5]

This is the same stuff Richard Anderson described: he once witnessed his friend eliminate a "blackish grey snake-like mass".[6]

Then there is Benard Jensen. He published a book called Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management.[7] He said that the mucous lining is "foul", thick, "stringy" and loaded with "tissue".[8] And that the mucous lining throws off "catarrh".[9] He blamed meat eating for this. He thought our meat eating habits generated bacillus coli in the colon, which he said is "constantly occupied in breaking down tissue and reorganizing it".[10] He was describing mucoid cap formation. He was describing how when the epithelium becomes damaged, as it commonly does with the type of diet we eat, an inflammatory and wound healing process kicks into gear resulting in exudate leaching from blood vessels located in the lamina propria and mixing in with the adherent mucus layer (catarrh is a mixture of mucus and exudate) and necrotic epithelium cellular debris. This is what his friend Victor Earl Irons was alluding to with the title of his booklet "The Destruction of Your Own Natural Protective Mechanism" — he was alluding to the destruction of the epithelium.[11]

Recall Arnold Ehret's influential idea. His idea was that meat, dairy, and starchy foods cause albumin, sticky mucus, and white blood cells to appear in the body making feces stick to the walls of the gastrointestinal tract.[12] I think it is obvious that what he was actually looking at was how certain foods cause inflammation and damage to the body. And that he was confusing necrotic epithelium cellular debris for being feces. You can see this more clearly with Robert Gray who was obviously a fan of Arnold Ehret.[13] Robert Gray said that "mucoid" forming foods cause the colon to produce sticky catarrh, which makes feces stick to the colon forming into a "tough, rubbery, nearly black substance".[14] He made a curious distinction between two types of old feces lining the colon: putrefactive matter and postputrefactive matter. He said that "putrefactive matter" is moist, still decaying, and easily removable whereas "postputrefactive matter" is dry, no longer putrefying, rubbery, glued firmly onto the colon, and usually grey, black, dark brown, or dark green in color.[15] He was describing the difference between slough and eschar! He just didn't realize it. According to textbooks on wound healing, slough (putrefactive matter) is moist, less necrotic, mucoid, loosely adherent, and either yellow or tan whereas eschar (postputrefactive matter) is dry, more necrotic, leathery, firmly adherent, and either gray, black, brown, or olive-green.[16]

See, I told you. Mucoid plaque is what medical science calls mucoid cap. It's necrotic tissue and exudate (albumin, fibrinogen and inflammatory cells) mixed in with mucus. The wound healing literature describes necrotic tissue as "black", "brown", "gray", "yellow", "olive-green", "hard", "soft", "mucoid", "stringy", "leathery", "putrid" and "foul".[17] Upon activation of the "coagulation" process, fibrinogen polymerises to form "sticky", "rubbery" fibrin that may be visible as "strands" or "sheets".[18] And albumin forms into mucin-albumin complexes, which is substantially more viscous than mucus or albumin alone.[19] This is exactly how Richard Anderson, Robert Gray, Benard Jensen, Walter Bastedo, and Victor Earl Irons clinically described mucoid plaque.[20]

Richard Anderson's explanation makes sense now. He thinks mucoid plaque is mucus which "coagulates" and mixes in with "other elements".[21] It's a sketchy description of mucoid cap.

[20] Within pages 92 through 94 of Richard Anderson's book Cleanse & Purify Thyself Book Two he describes mucoid plaque as "soft", "gray", "yellow", "green", "light brown to black", "blackish green", "foul", "mucoid" and like "wet leather or rubber". On page 81 of Richard Anderson's book Cleanse & Purify Thyself Book One he describes mucoid plaque as like "long leather or rubber-like rope". On either page 8, 67, or 30 of Robert Gray's twelfth revised edition of The Colon Health Handbook he describes mucoid plaque as "sticky", "rubbery", "putrefactive", "black", "dark brown", "dark green", "hardened", "grey" or "mucoid". In Bernard Jensen's book Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management he describes mucoid plaque as "black", "foul", "putrid", "stringy", "sticky" and "hard as truck tire rubber". In Victor Earl Iron's booklet The Destruction of Your Own Natural Protective Mechanism he describes mucoid plaque as "foul smelling", "stringy", "grey", "brown", "black" and like "hardened rubber". I already showed you Walter Bastedo describe mucoid plaque as "gray, brown or blackish sheets, strings".
