My big sister had earlier this week sent an email with a link to a news article about a rather radical new form of treatment when it comes to digestive tract diseases.
It is called fecal microbiota transplant and as its name suggests, it involves transplanting fecal matter from a healthy donor into a sick person's colon to help them get better.
An Australian doctor by the name of Tom Borody has been championing the treatment for 25 years despite skepticism and many of the patients he's treated have gotten better, including a nurse who had for several years had Crohn's Disease, she had to go to the bathroom atleast 20 times each day and would spend hours there in pain, but after the treatment she got better quickly and is now living a healthy and problem-free life.
Here's the article itself:www.abc.net.au/news/2014-03-18…
Also, here's a website about the treatment itself, the various successful treatments as well as where you might be able to get help for your digestive tract disease:thepowerofpoop.com/
We're gonna bring this up with the doctor I'm currently seeing at the hospital if we might be able to try this treatment out.
