I have now been taking MSM for 3 days, as I heard it can prevent (some types of) parasites to bind to the intestinal walls. It's also said to help with skin, allergies, gut health etc.
I'm already noticing more frequent bowel movements, and I actually have noticed some white, stringy bits in them. It's only a little though, and I don't see it every time, not that much at all, so I don't know if it's actually something "serious". I also don't inspect it with gloves and chopsticks like some others do. I just look down at what's in the toilet when I'm sitting there, hehe. So I'm also not 100% sure of what I'm seeing or if I'm just making it up in my head because I know I want to detox from something. I'm taking a very low dose of MSM to begin with though so maybe that's why I haven't noticed a lot. Everything else looks pretty normal!
Anyway, this makes me suspicious that the white bits might be candida? Or it might just be mucus... But parasites could also cause candida overgrowth. Regardless, it's a good sign that it's coming out, right? Even though I've been eating foods that typically bloat me a lot, I haven't had that much of a problem since beginning MSM. Sure, I've had a little bloating but it hasn't been that painful and it has also gone away quite quickly.
My stomach LOOKS bloated though, but it did that prior to taking MSM, and it doesn't FEEL bloated. However, I suspect the bloatedness comes from the uterus and not the actual intestines.
