I am searching for someone willing to be a fecal donor, I'm a 29 year old female with an intestinal infection. I have been very sick and unable to sleep and can eat few foods. I have had to take time off from work because I am unable to function. I am a medical professional and know how to do the procedure. I just need a donor who is healthy and taken few antibiotics, with no diseases , no history of acne , hair loss or stomach issues. I am working with several doctors to do this safely. If you know someone who would be able and willing to help PLEASE reply.

you can't just pick someone off of the internet. you need someone who lives close to you since this is not a one time procedure. it will take many transplants to alter the bacteria in your gut. i did 8 fecal transplants but once i stopped, my gut went back to how it was again. this tells me that it can take more than that to have an impact and increase the good bacteria.
you also MUST get your donor tested. i cannot stress this enough. do you plan on doing these at home or through a colonoscopy or ng tube?

Wait a second. You don't mention a few things we must know first:
- What kind of infection is this? Where are you based? (critical for fecal transplantation)
- IF it's CDiff, have you tried daily, home-made goat kefir? In two new studies it's shown that it can get rid of CDiff's (with or without antibiotics help).
- Have you actually tried Paleo? You don't mention that you're a Paleo dieter or not. You see, I had terrible diarrhea and recurring CDiff infections for 10 years, until I found Paleo. I felt better within a few weeks and didn't have to do any fecal transplants or take drugs again for it. You mention that you can only eat few foods, I just hope that grains or pseudograins are not among them.
