FMT (Faecal Microbiota Transplant): Time To Give a S**T!

Ha ha, I couldn’t resist that! Not my joke, though, it’s how the authors finish off this really interesting article about poo transplants! Even includes a DIY video, so this is not for the faint-hearted! I’m not recommending you do that by the way; I would prefer you see a professional, always, of course.

As they say, this is just how far a Mum will go to help her young daughter with recurrent C. Diff infection when nothing else is working.

OK, step away from your lunch and enjoy this article if this is a subject you are interested in.

  1. FMT fascinates me, especially after the recent Horizon programme which showed that the two kids they focused on, who had mutliple allergies and had such restricted diets and poor health also had very different gut microbiota to their siblings and parents. In some cases they had NONE of some of the really good bacteria. It’s on my list of things that maybe, when I’ve made my fortune I might just inviestigate, along with hook worms! Thanks for sharing and don’t worry. I will not be trying this at home. Gross!

  2. Hey Ruth, there’s no need to spend a fortune on FMT because you can do it yourself. Everything you need to know about this is on the Power of Poop website: http://thepowerofpoop.com
