What Does Yeast In Stool Mean?
Many people that followed our oxygen colon cleanse protocol reported passing yeast and dead candida in stool. In some cases with mucus and other dead parasites. Yikes!
While this may not look very pretty, this is usually the point where people start to feel better.
Think about it this way; as disturbing as candida may look like when it comes out of you, it is still much better to have the dead candida yeast in the toilet rather than inside your body.
What Does Candida Look Like In Stool
Candida in stool usually look like white, yellow or light brown stringy threads, with or without a frothy foamy appearance.
If you find yourself spending your time looking at different pictures and comparing them with your stool, something to consider. Candida or yeast in stool don’t always look the same. The foods you eat along with many other factors can make it look different.
In any case, the way candida look like in your stool should not be used to diagnose candida overgrowth issues, or determine the candida treatment you may need.
When to see your doctor:

Candida Stool Test
Candida stool test looks for the presence of candida albicans in stool. A positive candida stool test doesn’t always mean that you have a candida overgrowth. One of the reasons for this is that it is normal to find candida in the body.
What is more important is the way your body responds to the levels of candida. This can change between one person to anther.
For this reason, healthcare professionals usually rely on multiple factors to test for candida overgrowth (source). These candida tests include:
- Existing candida and yeast infection symptoms.
- Medical history of the patient.
- Physical examination.
- Laboratory tests such as candida stool test, saliva test (not the spit test!), blood test, urine test, candida antibodies test, skin test, vaginal discharge test, and others.
