If you've been on Flagyl, Vanco. and Dificid without a "cure," see Dr. Borodys article about FMT's in the second forum. We are posting some information about this method. It has a high "cure" rate - 92%. A number of our posters have had one (including me - who said, "I would NEVER.")
"What is Faecal Microbiota Transplantation?
The human bowel contains a complex population of bacteria known as the gut microbiota. These organisms and the chemicals they produce can affect the bowel and the body as a whole and these effects can have both positive and negative impacts on a person’s health. The human gut microbiota protects us from pathogenic or ‘bad’ bacteria.
FMT involves the infusion of healthy human donor faecal bacteria via colonoscope or enema into a bowel that contains abnormal bacteria that are making the bowel ‘sick’. This infusion process can be a single infusion or it can be repeated over a period of time, depending on the severity of the patient’s condition.
The use of healthy human flora appears to be the most complete probiotic treatment available today, capable of eradicating ‘bad’ bacteria and spores and supplying ‘good’ bacteria for recolonisation of the gut in certain conditions." (Copied from the CDD in Sydney AU with permission.)
The CDD is accepting patients from the US again and doing phone consults. See http://www.cdd.com.au/pages/contact.html. Its founder, Dr. Thomas Borody, is also the founder of the FMT procedure.
If you have had or are considering an FMT please share your experiences here.
