DISCLAIMER:

These “Fecal Transplant At Home – DIY Instructions” are based on the experiences of one person, the anecdotal reports of others and questions most frequently asked by  e-Patients. They are not medical advice. FMT is still considered an experimental procedure without known future consequences.
Please read the disclaimer and discuss your options with your doctor before doing fecal microbiota transplant (FMT). It is critical that your doctor test your donor before FMT. An outwardly healthy person could carry an asymptomatic parasite or blood borne illness that could wreak havoc in your fragile system.

Introduction

In these instructions we will go over all the steps to take to ensure the best possible outcome for your fecal transplant.  We do encourage that you do this treatment in conjunction with a doctor’s supervision.  Even doctors who are limited by country regulations for fecal transplants are often very aware of the benefits of FMT for other health conditions and are often willing to act as a consult or to test your donor.

If you are doing it yourself, having a supervising physician is the best possible option.  Please see our list of FMT practitioners to contact a physician or practitioner near you that might be willing to help.

This tutorial on DIY fecal transplant is separated into several stages:

These instructions are for fecal transplant at home using an enema bag or bucket hung on a wall, which will maximize flow up the colon from the force of gravity. If you are in a hurry, syringes and enema bottles can also be used but do try to use the enema bag method as often as possible, for maximum effect.

These are solo DIY instructions and do not require assistance from another person.
