Information for those interested in Fecal Transplants

There seems to be more interest in fecal transplants since they have a high rate of success with certain infections like C. Difficile and they are said to be effective for many gut diseases. However, not everyone is eligible to get a fecal transplant which has led to some people doing at home treatments.

For those of you who have done at home treatments, it may not have been successful. It was originally thought that it was because the bacteria weren't placed deep enough inside the colon precisely the cecum, where they are meant to be. However, microbiologist Glenn Taylor of the Taymount Clinic in the UK ( a clinic that regularly does FMT) has stated that the reason most at home treatments fail is because most of the bacteria that are anaerobic in the gut, die when they come into contact with air. So for those of you who have blended the feces, most of the anaerobic bacteria in it are already being killed, simply because their is more air exposure after it has been blended.

Here is a link of the interview between Glenn Taylor and Chris Kresser

You would be surprised. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEMnRC22oOs Should probably rephrase that though, "some of the people on paleohacks"

I've heard of nobody crazy enough to do home fecal transplants.

Kresser was the only site who had an iterview with Taylor and had explained why most at home-treatments fail. A website known as the power of poop also had an interview with Taylor but he didn't provide information there.

I thought it would be a good idea to share this considering, many of the people on paleohacks have attempted to do at home fecal transplants only to make things much worse. Knowing something like this may help them consider an alternate route.

Disagree with this.

Bad logic. Not going to argue semantics.

Can we at least get some paragraphs going?

I'm not seeing anyone interested in this with follow-up comments / questions.

It really has the appearance of a block paste of spam, as if we want to get Glenn Taylor's name higher up on Google or a backlink for kresser.

Eg. http://paleohacks.com/questions/507690/anyone-read-chris-kressers-new-book.html

There are plenty of poop questions on PaleoHacks, just because it grosses you out doesn't mean you should downvote.

Useful information should be shared, even if it's not useful personally for you. Don't let the "must be phrased as a question" requirement get in the way.

Question site, not PSA site. Imagine if someone posted every time a new article, podcast or video came out.

Kresser is a cool guy, and you're making him look like a spam bot.

You're posting information about putting poop inside of people in a place where Questions are generally asked about a Paleo diet.
