I am pleased to announce the launch of an FMT discussion group on Facebook. This is a place to share experiences on home infusion, FMT clinics, FMT-friendly practitioners and donor testing. You may also wish to recruit others in your region to lobby local health practitioners and colonic clinics to offer FMT or local universities to conduct trials on FMT for your condition. The key is to present a united front and a compelling case that can’t be ignored.
Intestinal dysbiosis hits people from all walks of life and when we are not blighted by brain fog, we are a smart lot. Hopefully the activities of the Facebook group will harness these resources and place more pressure on the medical community to catch up with the science. The research is conclusive on C Diff however more is needed on other gut conditions. The success of FMT treatment for C Diff has proven that properly screened FMT doesn’t harm, so why not try it on other gut conditions where dysbiosis is a factor? It certainly is less harmful to the gut than anti-biotics and anti-inflammatories, which for many of us have caused more problems than they solved.
I’m guessing you don’t want your Facebook profile showing membership of a fecal transplant discussion group? To protect your privacy the group has been set up under the pseudonym Sally Brown. You can’t find it via Internet search and only your friendship with Sally will display on your Facebook profile. To join please send a friend request to Sally. You will then be accepted into the group.
Don’t be shy! If you’ve been wanting to share your experience with others, get moral support to take the FMT plunge or would like to recruit others for a lobby group, all you have to do is join.
Isn’t it time you were friends with Sally Brown?
