Can a person without C. Difficile benefit from fecal transplant? Where can one get one performed?

I've had gut issues for quite a while now (5 years) since a long course of antibiotics. I've taken lots of probiotics and eaten lots of fermented foods since then without much luck. I was wondering if this procedure (Fecal microbiota therapy) would help. My next question is where could such a procedure be performed? If I were to do it at home, how would I go about doing it?

Thanks!

Am I screwed then? Probiotics and fermented foods do not seem to be surviving my stomach acid. Stool sample tests show yeast and h. pylroi, the major problem however has been the inability to reinoculate my system with symbiotic bacteria, no matter what I try for any length of time! Garlic, targeted antibiotics and other antimicrobials only show temporary benefit at MOST. I feel like what I need is this stool transplant!

I had c diff three times this year and that still didnt convince any doctors around me that a fecal transplant was necessary.

Sounds like a WWJCD? What would Jack Kruse do? EPIC BIOHACK!

I used a vlender and didnt screen my donor. No doctor supported me.

I don't think most doctors really know much about this yet and most are likely to prescribe me medication

This was a topic of discussion on a recent Chris Kresser podcast. The fecal transplant protocol is so new that no one has developed a set of guidelines for when it should be used, except for c. diff, which is quickly fatal. Even in this case, the biggest hurdle is screening the samples and the donors. IIRC, Kresser said that 75% of fecal samples are rejected. There just aren't the kind of home tests required to eliminate unsuitable samples or people.

Talk to your doctor, it's a medical procedure.
