So does one have to volunteer to become a donor? Will they establish “poop banks”?

So obviously they had to try this on somebody. I would be suing the sh!t out of them.

Perhaps if I get a poop infusion from a liberal, the stink too may go away?

A significant number of them already enjoy having “matter” injected into their intestines — just not fecal matter.

It is not a new treatment. It has been used with good results for overt 10 years.

One of the pioneers was (this is true) Doctor Aas.

It sounds wacky, but the point of it is to provide the recipient with a complement of normal gut bacteria that suppress dangerous bacteria like c. difficile.

This has been done since the beginning of time. It is just a normal happening where people with less than perfect hygene live near one another. That includes even the most ardent clean freaks in modern America.

seconded, actually when I get diarrhea I usually eat yogurt for a while and it goes away.

Yogurt in the raw does the same thing, replacing the “good” bacteria. And it is more pleasant to take.

Yes. I had a relative very sick with colon issues over about 8 months of 2012. They thought that the antibiotics he had gotten for a foot infection, also killed off his “good bacteria”, and one option they discussed was the fecal transplant. At one point, the relative was sure he was going to die, had lost massive amount of weight, was giving me info on what to do if he did not make it through. I think he would have recovered much faster, had they proceeded with this treatment option.

Even fecal matter is worth something. First, as fertilizer. And second, in some instances it has a medical use that can significantly help restore health.

Many years ago I read a fascinating book by retired surgeon William Nolen MD who discussed this very same topic in a hilarious way. As a resident(at Bellevue in NYC) they had a patient that secondary to heavy antibiotic dosage had developed a severe and unremitting diarrhea. After a resident’s conference and unbeknownst to Nolen, his junior resident mixed some fresh feces found on the ward, emulsified it and had the patient drink it. Naturally word got out and Nolen was terrified that crazy stunt cost him his job.

Great author and a great set of books!

Look up the ‘fecal’ treatments being used for Chrons disease and other forms of IBD. It’s encapsulated/processed...but you are still eating...Oh hell I can’t even type it.

And you don’t want to know how I know....

Antibiotics are often what CAUSES diarrhea.

What people need is pro-biotics, the good bacteria which are supposed to be living in the gut which prevent diarrhea that the antibiotics cause by killing off the good bacteria.

The good stuff can had in the dairy section of the supermarket, in kefir, and in OTC supplements as capsules.

Before anyone goes in for a poop transplant, they need to seriously try an aggressive, prolonged course of pro-biotics.

Just go to the livestock store and buy a gallon of -real- Kaolin/Pectin.

No more runs.
