yes, sorry Torsten I tried to make that clear a few times. I wasn't making a big distinction between the two but I should have.
so from the above it seems you did not actually do a cleanse, but just an enema?
I have done a two week bowel cleanse with herbs and very restrictive diet but no enema and never gotten those things, it was only the pure warn tap water that caused it.
It makes me think that maybe the people who produce those things are actually not in such good shape because they look exactly like "those things"
When the naturopath who taught my class about the various intestinal cleanses talked about doing it to him self. He said he had produces them after a three (or so) day fast plus daily enema. He said he passes "those things" and was left feeling a bit "raw" inside.
When it happened to me I put two and two together and assumed that the three day fast and regular enema had really thrashed his guts and left them inflamed and irritated thus producing a mucus turd.
By the way, I am not advocating any kind of bowel cleanse. I think they can often be excessive. I like the probiotic etc ideas that Torsten has posted for good gut health over the long haul.
