Mucus in the stool is a sign of a high Kapha diet, or Kapha imbalance in your body. Other causes include amoeba infection, parasites, and candida. Dairy, wheat, sweets, and red meat have ample gooey quality, increasing mucus in the digestive tract. When your diet is too gooey for your digestive tract to handle, excess mucus is excreted in your stool.

Simple Treatment

You can remove excess mucus from your body through diet and herbal remedies. Add leafy greens and high fiber foods to your diet, which will scrape the colon clean. The scraping action of roughage removes excess mucus. Hot, pungent spices increase your bodies digestive capability and to liquefy mucus. Mild, drying laxatives like triphala are also a helpful addition to your healing food choices.

Sign of Toxicity

If you notice that mucus on your stool that also carries a foul smell, this is a sign of toxicity in your gastrointestinal tract. It's an indication that food is fermenting in your intestines. If this is the case, you may need to do a kitchari fast, and elimination diet, or incorporate bitter herbs that will clear both mucus and toxicity from your colon.
