Apple Cider Vinegar Enema
If I do an apple cider vinegar enema and lots of white puffy mucussy looking stuff comes out, what is that? Is it biofilm or yeast or parasites?
That's normal: Forgive my frankness. You shouldn't do this to yourself. You're being played for a sucker by charlatans. You're seeing normal epithelial mucus coagulated by acid. If you buy into phony "yeast" or "biofilm" disinformation, you will never feel well again. If you're interested in "natural healing", find an evidence-based holistic practitioner in your community.

You owe it to yourself to get with an evidence-based holistic practitioner in your community, rather than try to negotiate the welter of mostly-false claims about complementary medicine on your own. There's some stuff of real value. Best wishes. ...Read more
