Treating Clostridium difficile
with fecal microbial transplantation. A healthy digestive system is
home to thousands of bacteria. The intestinal tract includes
the stomach, small intestine, and large intestine, which
is also known as the colon. In most cases these
microbes are harmless or even beneficial to
a healthy individual. However, conditions that require
treatment with antibiotics can kill off many of the good
bacteria in the colon, allowing the bad bacteria, called clostridium
difficile to take over. Toxins released by Clostridium
difficile can damage the lining of the colon, a condition known as
Clostridium difficile colitis. Clostridium difficile infection
can lead to life threatening complications. Such as toxic megacolon, where the colon becomes
dangerously enlarged. Clostridium difficile is
normally treated with a course of antibiotics. But a recurrent infection
occurring between 20% to 60% of patients after
an initial episode. The standard treatment for a recurrent infection
is antibiotics. But in cases where this fails, there is a new
alternative treatment. An emerging solution for
patients with recurrent infection is fecal microbial
transplantation, or FMT. Also known as stool
transplantation, FMT restores good bacteria in
the colon by using the good bacteria from a donor. Stool samples are obtained
from healthy donors and are screened to ensure there
are no infectious diseases. There are different ways to
introduce the good bacteria, but one common way is
with a colonoscopy. Fist the stool is prepared by
blending it with normal saline which is a salt water solution. Using a colonoscope this mixture
can be applied to the entire length of the colon. Studies have shown that over
90% of patients treated with fecal microbial transplantation
are cured with no significant side effects reported to date. Please speak to your doctor
about Fecal Microbial Transplantation if you
are considering this treatment. [MUSIC]

  1. This is wrong! Go vegan! And use CBD to allow your own body to regulate within a hour. I swear, fucking pharmaceutical stupidity. Why should anyone take something that will make things worse destroying your immune system along the way, your one line of defense! What a bunch of crap!

  2. This make sense, make a health enviroment as the study of Bruce Lipton that show how is the medium of a cell who make it bone, skin, tissue, or another organ, also demostrate, that in a toxic medium the cell is going to get sick , and to recover the cell we just have to put in a health enviroment, this treatment (FMT) corrects the medium and is the same as the cancer treatment with antineoplastons (burzynski) to cure cancer and came from a health urine donor… same principal from health food (raw food) uses to cure.

  3. I have had C-diff for many months. I have done one course of Flagyl, with poor results, then followed by two course's of Vancomycin and still very sick with stomach cramping, diarrehea and horrible lower back painNext treatment is a fecal transplant. Hoping it works. Desperate.

  4. The donor for Fecal Transplant need to be young? My dad is 58, and he took just one time antibiotic in his life, and he is healthy!

  5. Praying my dad gets one asap. He is at the hospital now. I'm convinced it's his only hope for a decent quality of life for the days he has left.

  6. Treat with antibiotics?? That was the problem lol??. This also helps with weight issues. Thin ppl have bacteria that heavy ppl are missing. This helps change the entire microbiome in the gut.

  7. I got rid of my re-occurring c. diff. without antibiotics:
    Had c. diff after taking clindamycin.  I was in terrible pain, loss my appetite, weak, and using the bathroom 20x a day for 5 days and ended up going to the hospital.  It went into "remission" after taking vancomycin for 14 days.  My doctor told me not to worry about it coming back, but of course it certainly did about 12 days off Vancomycin.  I just couldn't bring myself to take anymore antibiotics, especially when it was antibiotics that helped get me into this nightmare.  So, this is what I did to get rid of my c. diff symptoms in believe it or not 48hrs.!

    1. I prayed (Believe it or not Jesus answers prayers)
    2. I bought Activia probiotic yogurt and had 1 a day
    3. drank about a quarter cup mixture of garlic, ginger, and honey 3x a day
    4. drank 116oz bottle of water with 1 1/2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar 1 x a day
    5. Ate flour porridge with a teaspoon of honey once for breakfast and once for dinner for 3-4 days
    6. Took one probiotic vitamin a day.

    After doing this for 2 days, (I kid you not) the diarrhea was gone, the cramping was gone, and the overall ill feeling was gone (thank you Lord Jesus)!  The only thing was that my stomach was very bubbly, but that cleared up too within about 4 days.  I was shocked to see just how fast it went away.  Even though all the symptoms went away I still continued everything (except the probiotic pill and the porridge) and decided to continue for at least 2 more weeks and then cut back for 3 x  a day to 2 than to 1x  and just make the 1x an addition to my daily routine.  I suggest always checking with your doctor, but this is what worked for me without having to put more antibiotics in my body.  I hope this is helpful to someone!

  8. This goes so much further than just gastrointestinal problems, check out the studies and research done on autistic patiants in which they did mirobiome transplant on I think 18 people with severe autism. There aim was to treat iritable bowl which was very successful BUT then the autism syptoms and behaviors began to decrease as much as 45% opening whole new information regarding the gut/brain/nerve-system connection. ASU Prof. James Adam PhD

  9. No one:
    Literally no one:
    Not a soul in the known universe:
    Doctor: gimme your poop to save these fucking lives!!!!

  10. I’m 67 and learning fir the first time that there is such a thing as a fecal transplant. Hope I never need one. Certainly happy I’ve only used antibiotics once in my life about 20 years ago.
