The Unpleasant world of Fecal Transplants


Whilst many have now accepted that Friendly Bacteria is highly beneficial for IBS sufferers, getting them to accept the best source of bacteria may be a bit tricky.


For a number of years now the practice of ‘Fecal Transplanting’ has been studied and the results are starting to appear very positive.


Unfortunately it is every bit as unpleasant as it sounds.  ‘Fecal matter’ taekn from a subject with a healthy digestive system is then placed into the system of a subject with a less healthy system, allowing the friendly basteria to do its work.

It is presently regarded as a last resort treatment, however for severe IBS sufferers it does provide new hope.


Fecal Transplanting Science


The science behind ‘fecal transplanting’ is complicated, however it is easy to understand why and how it works.  The question is, with the vast amount of ‘friendly bacteria’ products available, why do we need such a seemingly unpleasant treatment ?


Whilst there are many excellent products out there, this is by far and away the most natural treatment to become available.  It holds a clear advantage over bacteria products in relation to the bacterial balance.  Even the very best products can become dominated by one particularly dominant strain of bacteria, by the time they reach the gut.



It is this loss of balance that defines the key natural advantage held by the transplant, no matter how good we are at replicating a natural phenomenon it will never be quite as good as natures original.  A prime example would be breat milk formulas.



How to get this treatment ?


The science has been adopted in varying levels around the world and for some you may have to travel to find this treatment.  It is still a last resort treatment though and at this stage we would recommend for most people that you try a variety of strengths of ‘friendly bacteria’ first as that may just do it.  If you are still struggling then we do recommend taking to google, searching for ‘Fecal Transplant’ to find the closest place for you.  There are still some risks posed by the treatment, however many illnesses are tested for in the transplant donors fecal matter.
