If its sooo clean, why a relative?source wrote:Pills made from poop cure serious gut infections

Donor stool, usually from a relative, is processed in the lab to take out food and extract the bacteria and clean it.
No option to pay more and get it packed 6 times?source wrote:It is packed into triple-coated gel capsules so they won’t dissolve until they reach the intestines.
If there is "no-poop" in what they are swallowing, why not extract the bacteria first, and then just freeze those?source wrote:“There’s no stool left — just stool bugs. These people are not eating poop,”
Minnesota doctors are testing freezing stool, which doesn’t kill the bacteria, so it could be stored and shipped anywhere a patient needed it.
I would of thought they would be combining or extracting the best, and make a SUPER POOP! err.. i mean super-bacteria-combination. ie just maybe extract and breed the better bacteria? like the current general "stomach bacteria" pills you see.source wrote:“You could have a universal donor in Minnesota provide a transplant for someone in Florida.

You were right. They have updated their website, where they now talk about FMT for MS and other "gastro-neurological" condictions. Look at the video.erimus wrote:this treatment is now available in the UK at the Taymount clinic

Antibody response against gastrointestinal antigens in demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system.
BACKGROUND: Antibodies against gastrointestinal antigens may indicate altered microbiota and immune responses in the gut. Recent experimental data suggest a connection between gastrointestinal immune responses and CNS autoimmunity.
METHODS: Antibodies against gliadin, tissue transglutaminase (tTG), intrinsic factor (IF), parietal cells (PC) and Saccharomyces cerevisiae (ASCA) were screened in the sera of 45 patients with AQP4-seropositive neuromyelitis optica (NMO) and NMO spectrum diseases (NMO/NMO-SD), 17 patients with AQP4-seronegative NMO, 85 patients with clinically definite multiple sclerosis (MS), and 48 healthy controls (HC).
RESULTS: Thirty-seven percentages of patients with AQP4-seropositive NMO/NMO-SD and 28% of patients with MS had at least one particular antibody in contrast to 8% of HC (P < 0.01, respectively). Antibodies were most common (46%) in AQP4-seropositive myelitis (P = 0.01 versus HS, P = 0.05 versus MS). Anti-gliadin and ASCA were more frequent in the AQP4-seropositive NMO-spectrum compared to controls (P = 0.01 and P < 0.05, respectively).
CONCLUSION: Antibody responses against gastrointestinal antigens are common in MS and AQP4-seropositive NMO/NMO-SD, especially in longitudinally extensive myelitis.

FMT performed at approximately 3PM.
Most significantly, I have suffered for the past 2 years+ from plaque palmoplantar psoriasis, with it being the most severe the last 2 months. At this time, the psoriasis is 90% clear. I am shocked.
I am in good spirits. My energy levels are up. In fact, I woke at 4am with so much energy I was almost unable to fall back asleep.
It is very early, but so far, I am feeling great.
