I though about this while ripping a 8 second one and felt the relief.
This might be inappropriate for this sub, but here goes:
How do nutrients get from the small or large intestine to their final destination? Do blood vessels swoop down to the intestinal lining to "scoop up" nutrients, and then carry them directly to their final destination?
Or, are all the nutrients in your gut pulled out, taken via blood vessels to your liver or kidneys first, and then distributed outward from there?
Mmhm it true!
I recently finished a two week course of xifaxan which was not effective. I've noticed that all my excess bloating occurs in my large intestine. I can literally feel the gas stuck along my sides and almost into my chest. I also find it very difficult to pass gas. It feels like it is trapped and can't make it around the bend to my rectum. When I do pass gas it tends to be very high pitched like it's just barely making it through. It's bottling up in my colon and I can't get it out.
Does any else experience this? Is it possibly my SIBO is actually a disorder within my colon?
What would you choose? Stoma or Crohn's disease.
Hellow everyone, i'm currently doing just fine, but i had some crises some weeks ago, so after some exams my doctor saw that my large intestine was really hurted in almost all parts, so he told me that removing it while i'm fine (now) is better than wait for another crise. So, here is the deal, it seams to be a commor surgery and might take one week at the hospital to recover to 'normal'.
I just didn't know that someone could live without they large intestine, and I thought that it woult be interesting to everyone here.
Also, the hospital nutritionist gave me a suplement specific from crohns and colits called Modulen, from Nestle. It kind's of heal and controls the desease. ( The nutritionist also told me that where I live, Brazil, I can get it for free from the universal public health system ).
Wish me luck.
Edit: Thanks for everyones support Edit2: The intestine I talk about is the last one, I translated it from portuguese to english with google translator and I think I let you all confused.
I had a colonoscopy and it said I have mild distortion in my colon and I don’t know what that means.
I also have mild chronic inflammation in my duodenum and partially in my stomach. (Maybe due to h. Pylori?) I haven’t gotten the breath test yet.
Apparently I might be in the quiet stage of IBD or it could’ve been from viral, bacterial or fungal colitis. They also checked to see if there are any signs of IBD in my entire colon and they didn’t see anything. (They looked in my ileum)
I did have acute diarrhea that resolved on it’s own back in July. (That’s when this all began) Ever since then, I defecate quite normally. However I still get abdominal pain, cramps, gas, lack of appetite and slightly less bloating compared to whatever I experienced 3 months ago. (My stomach still feels tender and swollen) According to my doctor, it may take 4-8 months for the distortion to go back to normal.
I’ve taken multiple blood, urine, stool tests and an ultrasound sound and it didn’t show anything abnormal. I went to the hospital multiple times and doctors don’t think I have IBD because my symptoms and my results don’t truly show it. I don’t take medication for anything or take supplements/vitamins.
I find very odd that I have whatever I have because I’m 19 and literally no one in my entire family has gastrointestinal tract issues. Then again, I haven’t been treated and there was a huge delay to see a GI specialist. I had to wait for 2 months an as a result, there’s a chance I would’ve been fine now.
I eat healthy and I used to exercise regularly. I don’t drink or smoke. I’m afraid that I could have IBD.
What do y’all think?
I've been dealing with increased permeability in my colon. It seems to be in my sigmoid and possibly rectum.
I've been taking ProButyrate for the last 10 days or so, but it also seems to be causing some candida die off. My NMD thinks I'm a revolving door of toxins as I usually seem to experience increased anxiety, muscle aches and pains, and sometimes brainfog either immediately before or after a bowel movement. My legs hurt and it can be difficult to walk around at times.
I'm thinking about taking colostrum, possibly via enema to try and get that area to start healing. Part of me just worries that the continual onslaught of toxins that hit that area with bowel movements will make it very difficult for that area to heal.
I'm curious if anyone has any thoughts for treatment of that area.
TL;DR at the bottom.
I don’t feel like explaining this because it’s a long and personal story, but understand I had my entire large intestine removed. Mescaline is primarily broken down and absorbed in the large intestine (colon) whenever you eat it. I lack this organ, so mescaline is ineffective when I eat it. That said, my friend grows San Pedro and extracts mescaline from them and synthesizes it into mescaline citrate.
He gifted me a dose of about 200mg the last time (and first time) I tried it. I admittedly hadn’t done a ton of research on the compound (at least as far as to understand how it’s biologically processed). So I ate the dose with some fresh lemonade I had made. I felt a little “trippy”, but never really had a cognitive flip or any visuals to speak of, but it physically felt like I should have. That said, I believe if I ate a large enough dose, I could probably trip.
From my research, it seems boofing should work perfectly fine for me (as I have the last 6 inches of my colon — also medically known as the anus — intact). My amazing friend gifted me another 400mg last night and some liquid zofran. He mixed the mescaline citrate in a medical syringe with roughly 4ml of zofran. Now he mixed 400mg of the mescaline in there because he wanted to see if I just ate a bigger dose if that would work for me. I don’t want to waste the stuff though and I don’t mind a strong dose.
I was wondering if it would be safe to boof this mixture and if so, how long should I hold it in? I also couldn’t find any guides about boofing mescaline doses and what to expect at what doses, so if anyone has experience with boofing around 400mg, I’d love to read a trip report.
TL;DR: A friend of mine gifted me 400mg of mescaline citrate mixed in a syringe with 4ml of liquid zofran. I do not have a colon, so oral administration would be ineffective; however, with a big enough dose I could probably trip by eating it. I think I’d rather boof it. I do not mind an intense trip, but I couldn’t find much information on boofing mescaline and what to expect with boofing 400mg. Is a zofran/mescaline citrate mixture safe to boof?
Any thoughts/trip reports would be highly appreciated. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day! Good vibes and safe journeys fellow psychonauts!
It doesn’t sit right with me that they go through the small intestine first. Shouldn’t there be like probiotic enemas or something?
