Mucoid Plaque is an Intestinal "Cast" Stupid

In his book Cleanse & Purify Thyself[1] Richard Anderson mentions a lady in Tucson who did his cleanse program. This lady claimed that after several feet came out, she had to pull the last 10 feet of mucoid plaque out of her butt by hand. Before you judge her as crazy you should know that the Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology[2] reported on this exact same phenomenon in another lady and shows you a photograph of it:
The doctors identified what you see there sticking out of her butt as a colon "cast", which they described as being "desquamated colonic mucosa". What they meant by that — I think it's obvious — was a mixture of exfoliated epithelium cells, exudate, and mucus what Cynn & Rickert colloquially refer to as "mucoid plaque" or "necrotic tissue".[3]

Here is another example of a so-called "cast" from some Turkish journal[4]:
And another example of an obvious cast from a medical atlas[5]:

Mucoid Plaque from textbook called "A Colour Atlas of the Digestive System".

Doctors typically think it forms as a result of ischemic damage, but they are wrong. What gastroenterologists think of as an ischemic injury is most often not an ischemic injury as FitzGerald & Hernandez[6] explain:

"As the name implies, ischemic colitis is thought to be an injury to the colon as a result of reduced blood flow. The insult can range from inflammation and superficial injury to full thickness necrosis. While this simplified explanation accounts for a portion of the cases, ischemic injury to the colon has been attributed to multiple other causes, and the pathophysiology is undoubtedly more complex."

And what are the other causes? The World Journal Of Gastroenterology[7] lists them. And ischemia is not one of them:

"The intestinal epithelium can be injured by toxic luminal substances, normal digestion, inflammation, interactions with microbes, oxidative stress, and pharmaceuticals, despite its barrier function"

As I already showed in my previous post, these factors are caused from the food and pharmaceuticals you ingest, so-called mucoidforming foods.

The concept of a cast has been known for a while now. The earliest known reference to it that I am aware of is in the 1892-1912 copyrighted textbook The Principles And Practice Of Medicine.[8] It speaks of a condition called "mucous colitis" where the patient would sometimes expel "intestinal casts".

What's going on is that these patients have colitis. And one of the consequence of some with this condition is that proteinase enzymes are produced in the intestines which degrades mucus.[9] The degradation of mucus leads to the degradation of mucoid cap.[10] This degradation sometimes occurs to such an extent that the mucoid cap sloughs off from the mucosa in large chunks, and doctors refer to them as intestinal "casts".

These intestinal casts are not just found in people with colitis. They are commonly found in so-called "normal" people as well who do not have colitis. Remember Victor Earl Irons claiming that you will be able to see, feel and even hold in your hands exactly what has been "thickening", hardening and decaying in your colon for years?[11] Well a so-called "thickening" of the colonic wall — not to mention the stomach and small bowel — is precisely what radiologists see when they do CT scans on people. They say it's a "quite common finding" not only among people with inflammatory, infectious or ischaemic conditions but also among so-called "normal" people who do not have these conditions.[12] And here are two examples of what this thickening visually looks like:
I got these two images from the International Journal of Surgery Case Reports[13] and the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine[14] respectively.

The gastroenterologists that commented about these two images claim that the black area is "full-thickness ischemia" while the pink area is "normal viable mucosa". This is not true. A normal viable mucosa is supposed to look like this:
It is supposed to have blood vessels and ridges. And even if it would become completely necrotic and turn black, you would still see the blood vessels and ridges.

What you actually see in those images is a black colon "cast" (aka mucoid plaque) covering not just part of the area you see there but the whole area you see there and a pink catarrh partially covering it up. The pink area that the stupid gastroenterologists think is "normal viable mucosa" is, in fact, an example of what radiologists say is a "thickening" of the colonic wall that is a "quite common finding" in "normal" people.[12] But it's far from normal. If you were to dissolve away the pink catarrh with proteinase enzymes, a process that occurs naturally in some people with colitis, you would see a black cast underneath. And if this would continue to a substantial extent, the cast would slough away from the mucosa and come out.

This is precisely what Bernard Jensen did to his patients.[15] He had his patients ingest large amounts of pancreatin, which contains proteinase enzymes. Here are some of the photographs he took of the black casts that came out:
What he demonstrated is that the black area you see there in those two dissected colons I showed you are, in actuality, so-called "casts" and that they can come off.

The irony of all this is that skeptics have been propagating the idea that psyllium and/or bentonite forms a rubbery "cast" of the intestines.[16] There is no science to support this idea. In fact, according to the science, psyllium actually has a "stool normalizing effect", which means it does not come out as a rubbery cast.[17] What actually does come out as a "cast", according to the science ironically enough, is an actual intestinal cast.

  1. Thanks for all your research. This is one of the most scientific sites I have seen on this topic. So, bottom line, which cleansing protocol do you recommend to start removing the mucoid plaque in "normals" without a GI diagnosis or major complaint? Thank you.

    1. Thanks! I now recommend 120,000 SPU "High Potency" Serrapeptase (Doctor's Best). Take one capsule in the morning on an empty stomach. Be sure to take lemon water (water with a little bit of lemon juice in it) the same day with it sometimes. I could swear it produces better results. One and a half hour later take psyllium supplement. Three hours after that take another psyllium supplement. When you do eat, make sure it's as far away from the Serrapeptase as you can. Sometimes I eat one meal a day at the end of the day. Sometimes I eat two meals a day because I am hungry. And when you do eat make sure it's the most strictest mucus-less diet I talked about on one of my posts because mucus-forming foods will cancel out the effects of the Serrapeptase.

      I now believe this to be more powerful than the NAC cleanse I talked about on one of my posts. The NAC cleanse was able to remove mucoid plaque (which I have pictures of) that Arise & Shine was not able to remove. But it stopped working. Serrapeptase is now slowly removing pieces that NAC was not able to remove. Right now as I speak I still have that super hard piece stuck in me. But it feels like the Serrapeptase is softening it up a bit. It's only been a week or two so we'll see if it ultimately comes out. I know what's going on now. I think that last piece has a higher proportion of fibrin in it than all other pieces. And I think it's stuck behind abnormal narrowings which I no doubt have.

      I'm slowly working on changing mucoidplaqueguru dot com into a coherent, single-page composition written like a book with a lot more information. We'll see if I succeed.
