  1. Fecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT)
    Hi everyone, I've been lurking on this forum for a long time and finally decided to post because I need emotional support.

  2. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Last week I completed 5 days of FMT treatment at Newbery Medicine in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I would like to provide a little information on the clinic, their protocol, and will also be posting updates. Fair warning...this thread may be filled with TMI if you are averse to reading about this...
  3. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    So I am scheduled for FMT treatment at Newbery clinic beginning next Monday. They do things a little bit differently and instead of doing a colon cleanse prior to implants, they prescribe prednisone to try to settle things down before treatment. I'm supposed to take 20mg prednisone 1x/day from...
  4. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi all, i am a sufferer of IBS-D for the last 20 years. I think it all started when i was under heavy antibiotics for 2-3 molar tooth extractions within a period of 2 months. In the beginning i didn't think much of it as i thought i had some bad food etc. but the diarrhoea didn't go off for a...

  6. General Discussion
    Dear Members - curious if you have or know anyone who has had these symptoms. I am 1.5 months out of colonoscopic FMT. I am having daily severe gas, fatigue, weight loss, headaches, insomnia, constant nausea which I think could be attributed to my SIBO. One doctor (my naturopath) thinks I...
  7. Welcome!
    Dear members - I recently had a FMT due to 3 recurs of Cdiff on August 11th. I am STILL nauseated every single day. The diarrhea has completely stopped thank God and I feel that I am cdiff free. But the nausea is unbearable. Did anyone else experience this post FMT and does it eventually...
  8. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi all. Today was my first of ten FMT sessions at Taymount Clinic and I thought I would document my experience as it may help others to decide if this treatment is worth a shot. At the moment, I don't think I'm going to do daily updates as I'm sure the procedure for the following days will be...
  9. Young Adult's Issues
    FMTs are working for us. The key, and I don't know why everyone is missing this ( https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4030581/#B14) is to boil the distilled water to remove the dissolved oxygen before using it to prepare the FMT. The best bacteria dies when exposed to oxygen and...
  10. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Hi, Can anyone who has had a consultation or FMT procedure with the Newbery Clinic in Buenos Aires share approximately how much it cost them? I am looking into it, but they will not even give me a ball park figure without a $150 consultation, and I don't want to waste that money only to find...

  12. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    I was just reading an interesting report about the effectiveness of probiotic pills. This study found that though people were consuming live cultures of bacteria in the probiotic pill, these bacteria did not establish themselves in the intestine. This correlates with other research reports...

  14. General Discussion
    I made a post in my IBS journal which I wanted to move to the general discussion so that it's accessible to everyone; this details multiple paths I've taken in my attempt to cure IBS. Since I no longer suffer from the condition I feel it's worth the read and consideration. I really hope it helps...
  15. General Discussion
    I made a follow-up post in my thread from a long time ago regarding my Fecal Matter Transplant. I used to suffer from very bad IBS when I was around 10-16; I'm now 20 and I no longer have IBS. IBS is a condition that takes time to alleviate; and there's various factors to it. I feel that the...
