Fecal transplants & why you should give a crap | Mark Davis | TEDxSalem
How swallowing someone else's poop could save your life! Dr. Mark Davis is a Portland-based naturopath who specializes in stomach and intestinal health. He is an expert in fecal transplantation, having successfully administered it for patients of many conditions. Davis cofounded Microbiomes, LLC, which was the first group in the U.S. to offer a fecal transplant capsule, which is taken orally. He hopes that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will eventually allow more patients to benefit from fecal transplantation.

Your Poop Could Save Someones Life | VICE on HBO
Fecal transplants have the power to revolutionize medicine, but hospitals need raw materials. At Open Biome, the country’s first independent stool bank right outside Boston, donors earn $40 for each sample. The clinic, however, approves less than 3 percent of applicants. Fecal transplants have already essentially cured a severe intestinal infection known as C. diff that kills 29,000 Americans each year. The gut disease, which often exhibits resistance to antibiotics, causes frequent and powerful diarrhea and can even require removing the intestine. But transferring a donor’s healthy stool into the bowels of an unhealthy patient acts like a nuclear-level probiotic to help the body’s healthy microbes replace the infection. While fecal transplants have a 90 percent success rate treating C. diff, the procedure could also be useful against slew of other diseases linked to the human microbiome, the trillions of bacteria, fungi, and viruses living inside our bodies. “We now know that the microbiome is linked to everything from irritable bowel syndrome to rheumatoid arthritis to cardiovascular disease and colon cancer — and then if the work in mice turns out to translate to humans, even things like depression, autism, Parkinson’s,” Rob Knight, a scientist at the University of California, San Diego and the co-founder of both the American Gut Project and the Earth Microbiome Project, said in VICE on HBO’s report on fecal medicine. For the feces needed to treat C. diff and support numerous clinical trials underway, 960 hospitals have turned to Open Biome. To date, the clinic has received more than 10,000 stool donations and processed over two tons of feces. VICE correspondent Thomas Morton visited the stool bank and made a deposit.

Breaking News  - Chinese boy has his tics cured by a poo transplant
A schoolboy with Tourette's syndrome no longer endured involuntary tics after he underwent a poo transplant.The nine-year-old, from China, suffered bouts of headshaking, shrugging and the urge to shout out words for nearly three years.But the unnamed patient's tics were 'completely ameliorated' after undergoing the transplant, designed to rebalance his gut bacteria.The bizarre report, published in an obscure medical journal, adds to the mounting evidence that poo transplants can treat other conditions.Doctors in Beijing decided to give him probiotics - live bacteria designed to boost gut health - in an attempt to control his Tourette's syndrome.And within two months of taking the tablets, his tics decreased, the medics wrote in the journal Case Reports in Medicine.However, six months later his symptoms once again worsened - reaching 31 on the Yale Global Tic Severity Scale - a scale used across the world.Doctors suggested giving the boy a FMT to relieve him of his symptoms, noting the temporary success of the probiotics.FMT involves transferring feces from a healthy donor. They contain roughly 1,000 different species of bacteria that replenish bacterial balance.Rigorous screening by doctors at the Chinese PLA General Hospital ruled out dozens of potential candidates.A fecal sample, believed to have been around 400ml, was eventually collected from a healthy 14-year-old male donor months after the search began.The sample was administered to the patient's small intestine through a tube inserted through his mouth, and to his colon using a tube in his rectum.No side effects were reported - despite evidence suggesting that FMT can lead to vomiting, fever and abdominal pain in patients given the samples.Eight weeks after the transplant, which originated in China nearly 1,700 years ago, the boys tic severity score dropped from 31 to five.His parents revealed the severity of his tic symptoms had 'clearly ameliorated', the doctors, led by Dr Huijun Zhao, wrote in the journal.'They reported that involuntary phonation (making sounds) had disappeared, and involuntary shrugging now occurred only occasionally.'Some studies have shown benefits from taking probiotics in treating Tourette's syndrome, among other neurological conditions.And a University of Arizona study published last January claimed that FMT could treat behavioural symptoms in autism patients.The scientists discovered that children with autism are lacking in bacterial diversity in their gut - and fecal transplants could help rebalance it.

DIY Fecal Transplants to cure yourself of Ulcerative Colitis
This video shows you how to do Fecal Microbiota Transplants (FMT) at home. While this video goes into a lot of detail there are other elements to make this treatment safe and effective that I cover in more detail in my book: http://fecaltransplant.org/fecal-transplant-cure-ulcerative-colitis-book/ You have probably heard that FMT is a highly effective treatment for Clostirium Difficile (c. diff) bacterial infections with studies estimating a success rate of 90 - 100% However it can also be used to treat other medical conditions like Ulcerative Colitis. I personally used it to treat my case of Ulcerative Colitis in June and July 2011 when the only other treatment option my doctors gave me was surgery. After 12 years of illness FMTs worked after every other medical treatment was unsuccessful and I now consider myself cured. I think it is important to note that for me the fecal transplants alone were NOT the only thing that I did which lead to my cure. I also used a combination of medications and nutritional supplements prescribed or recommended by doctors from several different specialties. I think these along with the length of time I did them for is why this worked so well for me. This stands a chance of working for anyone who is suffering from c. diff, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's Disease. Research is ongoing for other conditions as well including Autism, depression, obesity and several auto immune disorders.

The Shit Show - Fiber, Fecal Transplants and the Microbiome
Welcome to the Shit Show! We start off with a discussion of fiber - is it the essential part of the diet the "experts" tell us it is? Fiber appears to have benefits, but there are a number of examples of people doing fine, even thriving, eschewing it completely. Some health issues even seem to be markedly improved by eliminating fiber, while increasing it worsens conditions. Maybe fiber isn't the amazing non-nutrient it's assumed to be! Dr. Gaby brings us a health alert with important new information about fluoroquinalones. We then move into other poopy areas, discussing the emerging research on fecal transplants among other poop-related topics. Finally, Zoya's Pet Health Segment brings us some fascinating information about animal poop - why do some animals eat their own poop and why do dogs prefer to poop along the north-south axis of the earth?

Breaking News  - Sydney mum had a poo transplant to help her gut
Sometimes the problems with your stomach have nothing to do with that third serving of ice cream, two-day hangover, or spicy ramen.Sometimes an issue with your gut goes much, much deeper than that.Faecal microorganism transplants, more commonly known as FMT or poo transplants, are now being used to help a range of gut conditions.A poo transplant utilises the stool from a healthy donor and transfers it to the sick recipient with the hope that the donor bacteria will attach to the patient's gut.This new bacteria is then meant to help restore the balance of the gut so it can fight against infections like C. difficile or even Crohn's disease.Poo transplants have been approved for treating recurrent C. difficile, as the condition normally develops from the use of antibiotics.It is especially common among hospital patients, whose immune systems are especially vulnerable to the bacteria.C.diff symptoms include diarrheoa and stomach pain, and the infection can become fatal if the colon is severely damaged.Doctors told Sydney mum-of-three Kerryn Barnett that she may need to have her colon removed after her gastroparesis - a rare illness in which the stomach is paralysed and can't absorb nutrients - had moved to her bowel.The surgery would have been irreversible, permanently connecting her small intestine to her rectum.But another specialist suggested a faecal microbiota transplant instead, which Kerryn, 38, underwent via a colonoscopy.Half a kilo of healthy donor faecal matter was transferred to her bowel, followed by 10 days of enema treatments.'You get to the point of being willing to try just about anything in the hope you can be here for longer,' she told Daily Mail Australia in October.'There were so many periods of the last three years where I didn't have any hope, but to go through this process and see the benefits and the outcome has just been huge.'A new study, published this week in Cell Host & Microbe, recently examined the factors which help determine whether donor bacteria will attach - known as engraftment - to the recipient's gut.Researchers found that engraftment was more successful when donor bacteria was more abundant.'They also found that, if the recipient already had some of the strains found in the donor, the probability of those strains engrafting was higher,' the study read.The researchers hope the study will help build a foundation for developing a synthetic probiotic that can act as an alternative to 'transferring raw fecal matter' in the future.

Is Fecal Transplant Right For You?
Download my free candida report here https://bit.ly/2Qr69Iv Hi there, Eric Bakker, back again. We're going to talk about something not so pleasant this time, so I hope you haven't had your breakfast yet or your dinner, or you're about to have it. So, if you are going to have a meal, come back and then watch the video maybe later. We're going to talk about fecal microbial transplant, or FMT.This is a topic I've been following now for some time. I just saw on Wikipedia that it was first performed in 1958 in the States, but more recently since the 1980s, it's been performed and probably likely pioneered by the Center for Digestive Diseases in Sydney, Australia. I've have some discussions with some of the doctors that work at the CDC, after a medical conference in Sydney, in fact, I had a dinner function. Not exactly something that the average person is going to sit down and have a nice meal and glass of wine and talk about stool and implanting stool, and stuff, but those things don't faze me, it's part of my job.I won't mention any of the doctor's names but I know some of the doctors at the CDC. My personal opinion on FMT is, in most cases, it's not really going to have much effect on the patient. One of the doctors said that when they first started doing the pilot studies with a group of about 20 patients, after 12 months all patients had exactly the same problem that they began with. So it's not a cure-all. It was originally used particularly for Clostridium difficile, quite a nasty gut infection you can get which can lead to some serious bowel problems. In fact, it's sort of become now the standard treatment for C. diff in America. I don't think it's covered by Medicare, so you're going to have an out-of-pocket expense which could be many tens of thousands of dollars in some case, and sometimes you need top-up treatments. Doctor Thomas Borody from the CDC, for example, in 1988 had a successful attempt at working with a patient with ulcerative colitis with FMT. The patient went into remission for a considerable period of time and then relapsed. I worked with over 100 cases of UC, ulcerative colitis, just in the last several years and they had almost a complete remission for a long period of time using no FMT whatsoever. Just by doing stool testing, just by eliminating the main pathogens in the gut by rebuilding the gut with probiotics, by looking at the correct kind of anti-inflammatory diet, we got a fantastic effect with ulcerative colitis. Fecal microbial transplant, in my case, is clutching at straws. It's a last resort kind of thing that many people jump into, but now it's sort of seen like it's a first resort. I think it's for really rare and unusual and strange cases where other avenues have been exhausted. But in my personal opinion, it's not required in 99% of cases. Now, I'm probably going to get blasted by saying this, by some comments, "I had successful FMT or I would've been dead years ago." I'm sure there'll be people out there like that but you'll likely be that 1% then, but for 99% of people, if those people start making lifestyle and diet changes, particularly if they did that a long time ago before they developed pathology in the gut. If those people had regular stool tests done and got on top of their leaky gut, their CBO, their candida, if all those were slowly fixed over time, they wouldn't have fallen into the hole that they did with their bad gut. Again, a stitch in time saves nine. So, if you fix things up earlier, they don't become serious problems down the track, requiring things like FMT. Now, as I mentioned, there will be rare cases that will require either a genetic ... Genetically linked cases or some serious issues there, but in most cases, I just can't see the benefit. I had a case, for example, about four years ago. We had a young lady from the UK with a seriously bad gut. I tried many things with her and I really couldn't get the result I was looking for. The parents had plenty of money so they flew the girl to Sydney. The girl had FMT, and for three months it was all hunky-dory. Okay? If you don't know what that expression means, it was all fine. Everything went great and this girl thought she was cured, but then, bang, straight back to where she was. 30 grand later, she's back in the same hole she was in the beginning.The thing that fixed that girl up was probiotics. Once we found the correct probiotics for her, literally within a month, she was back at university again. It's as simple as that, okay? This girl spent a lot of money going to all different clinics, tried all of the different types of antibiotics, many different things, but in the end it was just probiotics that fixed her up. Right? Thanks for tuning in.

Fecal Transplant and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
While fecal transplant is a promising treatment for C. difficile infections, with success rates of over 90%, in 2013, there is no clear-cut evidence that fecal transplant works in the treatment of IBD and it should be undertaken only under research protocols. However, Sahil Khanna, M.B.B.S., a gastroenterologist at Mayo Clinic specializing C. difficile infections, fecal transplant, and inflammatory bowel disease, discusses literature and upcoming clinical trials that will gather more data and better determine whether fecal transplant can be a viable treatment for IBD.

Breaking News  - Feces capsules are 96% effective at treating C. difficile
Feces pills are 96 percent effective at treating deadly Clostridium difficile infections, new research reveals.The nauseating tablets, which have no scent or taste, are as effective as fecal-transplant (FT) colonoscopies for treating recurrent cases of such infections, but are non-invasive and do not require sedation, a study found.FTs involve the transfer of a fecal sample from a healthy donor to a recipient to help restore the bacteria balance in their gut so they can fight an infection.They are approved for recurrent C. difficile infections when standard antibiotic treatment is unsuccessful. Such infections recur up to 25 percent of the time, with antibiotics becoming less effective with continued use.C. difficile infections can cause life-threatening diarrhea and inflammation. They are common among already ill hospital patients as staff easily spread the bacteria if their hands are contaminated.Faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is used when standard antibiotic therapies fail to treat recurrent C. difficile. It involves the transfer of healthy bacteria from a donor into the intestines of the recipient via a colonoscopy. The idea is to restore the balance of bacteria in the recipient’s intestine so they can fight infection. After one C. difficile infection, there is up to a 25 percent chance it will return. Antibiotic treatment becomes less effective each time. Extensive screening of the donor's fecal sample means complications are rare. Endoscopy damage occurs in less than one in 1,000 cases. This may include infection, bleeding or tearing. FMTs are also being investigated in inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn's and ulcerative colitis.How the study was carried outResearchers from the University of Calgary analyzed 105 adult patients with recurrent C. difficile infections between October 2014 and September 2016, with follow-up to December 2016.Of the study's participants, 59 received FTs via colonoscopies and the remainder by tablets.The pills are made by processing feces until they contain only bacteria.'Those with recurrent infection are thankful to have a treatment that works'Results reveal FT administered via tablets or colonoscopies are equally as effective.Yet, the pills appear to be safer as just 5.4 percent of the study's participants experienced mild side effects when taking the tablets versus 12.5 percent having a colonoscopy.Some 66 percent of the participants taking the capsules described them as 'not at all unpleasant' compared to 44 percent having the invasive procedure.Study author Dr Thomas Louie said: 'Recurrent infection is such a miserable experience and patients are so distraught that many ask for fecal transplantation because they've heard of its success.'Many people might find the idea of fecal transplantation off-putting, but those with recurrent infection are thankful to have a treatment that works.'Capsules have numerous advantages over colonoscopy. They are non-invasive, they're less expensive, they don't AutoNews- Source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-5143579/Feces-capsules-96-effective-treating-C-difficile.html?ITO=1490&ns_mchannel=rss&ns_campaign=1490

The Gut Microbiome and C. difficile
Researchers from Mayo Clinic have published a new study on the gut microbiome and C. difficile in the journal Science Translational Medicine: http://stm.sciencemag.org/content/10/464/eaam7019. Using a novel mouse model, the researchers found that a subset of patients with diarrhea may be susceptible to C. difficile infection as a result of deleterious changes in their gut bacteria and increased availability of amino acids, the favored food source for the pathogen C. difficile. The researchers also found that fecal microbiota transplant or dietary restriction can decrease amino acids availability and prevent C. difficile infection.

It turns out there are three types of gut microbiota: Bacteroides, Prevotella and Ruminococcus. The ongoing research will examine what role these bacteria in the gut play in the metabolism of specific macronutrients such as carbohydrate and protein and whether diet can be manipulated to make one type more dominant than another. It's a fascinating, cutting-edge field of metabolic science right now!

Young Scot Awards 2017: James McIlroy - Enterprise
James is a medical student at Aberdeen University who identified an unmet need in the treatment of patients suffering from the C.diff bowel infection, which can cause debilitating ulceration and, in 10 per cent of patients, leads to death. The treatment is called faecal microbiota transplantation (FMT), where bacteria is extracted from stools donated by healthy donors and transplanted into the colon of the patient. The success rate is very high, at over 90 per cent, but the availability of the treatment is extremely limited. James set up a community interest company called EuroBiotix CIC with the aim of creating a stool bank from where screened safe FMT treatments could be provided to physicians within Scotland initially, but eventually the whole of the UK and Europe.

A Stool Bank in Massachusetts Will Pay You $40 a Day for Your Poo
Massachusetts residents can now make a modest living out of their own bodily functions – by donating a sample of their poo. An independent non-profit stool bank called OpenBiome is willing to offer volunteers $40 per deposit, and what’s more, it’s all for a good cause. The stool samples will be used for fecal transplants, to fight the deadly superbug C. difficile, which affects more than 500,000 and kills 14,000 Americans per year. If you’re wondering about fecal transplants, you can read all about the life-saving procedure in this feature we did a couple of years ago. At the time, there was only one doctor in the UK to have ever performed the transplant. Now, it seems that the treatment has become more popular and people are being invited to generously donate their poo at the OpenBiome stool bank. Stool transplants are being praised by many doctors as a miracle cure for C. difficile, a bacterial infection that most commonly affects hospital patients. It causes fever, painful cramps, severe diarrhoea, and in some cases, life-threatening complications such as severe swelling of the bowel. Patients with recurring episodes are ill for several months, and only have a 75 percent chance of survival.

'Super poo donors' wanted
, 31, works as a student support administrator at a university, and in her spare time she is a poo donor.  "Some of my friends think it is a bit weird or disgusting, but it doesn't worry me. It's very easy to donate and I just want to help with medical research. I'm glad to contribute." Her faeces, teeming with "good" bugs, will be put into the bowel of a sick patient to help their poorly gut get better. Claudia knows her donation is extremely useful - that is why she does it - but is her poo extra special?  Scientists believe some people's poo might contain an ideal mix of healing bacteria to fix gut diseases, making them super-donors.  Claudia says she wanted to become a donor because she had read that vegans might make particularly good candidates. There's no good evidence that vegan poo is better than any other human faeces, but experts are exploring what might make a stool "super". Dr Justin O'Sullivan is a molecular biology expert at the University of Auckland and he has been investigating the concept of super poo donors. Why a faecal transplant could save your life What does a faecal transplant do? The brave new world of DIY faecal transplant Perfect poo? Our guts house millions of bugs that live inside us as a community. This diverse microbiome is unique to each us - no two are exactly the same.  Although faecal transplantation is still a relatively new field of medicine, evidence from the studies that have been done hint that some donors make the best poo for the job. Dr O'Sullivan says: "We see transplants from super-donors achieve clinical remission rates of perhaps double the remaining average.  "Our hope is that if we can discover how this happens, then we can improve the success of faecal transplantation and even trial it for new microbiome-associated conditions like Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis and asthma." Dr Jon Landy is a consultant gastroenterologist for West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust and helps to co-ordinate their faecal transplant unit.  He agrees with the idea of a super-donor, but says finding one could be tricky.  "We do not understand yet what makes a super-donor, or why," he said. "We always make sure our donors are healthy and not carrying any disease, but we don't test all of their microbiome to see what that is like. "These are the sorts of investigations that might need to be done."Faecal bugs Dr O'Sullivan's research, published in the journal , suggests having lots of different microorganisms in your poo might be the advantage. He says a larger number of species in the donor's stool has been shown to be one of the most significant factors influencing faecal transplantation outcome. And patients who respond well to the transplants develop a more diverse microbiome too. But studies suggest success could also depend on how good a match the donor is for the patient.  And it might not only be which bacteria are present in the poo. "Some cases of recurrent diarrheal infection have even been cured with trans

The Microbiome: Vital Cells of Existence
For every cell in your body, there’s another tiny single-celled creature that also calls your body home. Far from being germs we should eradicate, these ancient friends allow us to digest food, breathe air, and fight off disease. They were here long before us and will undoubtedly remain long after we’re gone. They are our microbiome, and after eons of cohabitation, we are finally getting to know one another better. Of course, we aren’t always the best of neighbors. Autoimmune diseases, allergies, depression, and Alzheimer’s may be diseases of an unhappy microbiome.

Shaping Our Dynamic Microbiomes For Lifelong Health - Exploring Ethics
(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) 0:16 - Main Talk 25:26 - Audience Discussion Our lifespans are ever-increasing, but our healthspans are not, leading to long periods of unpleasant and expensive suffering with chronic conditions. Many of these conditions have recently been linked to the microbiome. We are constantly shaping our microbiomes through the foods we eat, the environments we experience, even the people we live and work with. Through the American Gut Project, the largest crowdsourced and crowdfunded citizen-science project yet conducted, we now know about the microbiomes of many types of people, from the healthiest to the sickest. Potentially real-time analysis of our microbiomes could guide our daily decisions in a way that optimizes our microbiomes for extending our healthspan. Although the potential benefits of such research are clear, what are the risks (e.g., privacy concerns) that need to be identified and addressed? Rob Knight, PhD explains.
