    Has anybody had any experience, directly or indirectly, in any way whatsoever, with the concept of a faecal transplant?

    I am currently considering giving this a try in the hope that it may help with my IBS and/or CFS both of which I’m sure are Candida related.

    Sorry but I’ve never seen anyone discuss this before. Have you ever considered probiotic enemas?

    I have done them myself several times. Orally and rectally. They won’t cure a fungal infection.

    It sounds interesting…and gross. What I read on Google was sort of promising. But, I will let you go first and wait for your post…

    However, this did seem less gross after I watched this video about poo wine: http://www.vice.com/shorties/how-to-make-faeces-wine be warned, after she takes a good drink, gets tipsy, and leaves, she gets really ill.

    What IS interesting is that there is a Korean medical tradition (and museum) that centers around using fermented poo.

    And, there was an episode of Grey’s Anatomy in which they did this process, but through the nose-far less effective, from what I read.

    hey Smitty99, I haven’t but I will look into it although really a faecal transplant is the same thing but more effective as you are using bacteria as live as can be.

    Thanks Jorge, I’ll need to clear up any Candida first I appreciate so I won’t be trying this for a while. I’ve just signed up with uBiome who will sequence bacteria in my gut as part of crowd funded trial they are doing.

    I see the fecal transplant as the only way to effectivly recolonise the bacteria in the gut so I may have a uBiome report before and after to see what whether it has any effect on the results.

    hahaha, that was so funny, she didn’t know whether to laugh or cry at the end! It seems the concept goes further back than I thought, if there’s one thing for sure though, I won’t be using Dr. Lee Chang Soo’s wacky methods.

    Faecal Transplant Therapy is said to be much more efficient than taking probiotics. It can help people curing diarrhea etc, but I don’t think it will cure your candida.

    Fecal transplant did not help me either. Fungal candida needs to be at the bare minimum for this to have a chance to be successful–if it can be successful at all. People get good results from fecal transplants when their dealing with C. Diff.

    I know it won’t cure my candida but I am primarily hoping it may help with my CFS/IBS.

    Pro-biotics are obviously a part of the Candida regime so it will help as of part of that too if it works.
