Fecal Microbiota Transplant to treat Clostridium Difficile PSA

Here is a Public Service Announcement I recorded at the conclusion of a TV interview awhile back to encourage awareness of Fecal Transplants to treat Clostridium Difficile Bacteria.

 

“Hi I’m Michael Hurst, I used fecal transplants to treat and cure myself of Ulcerative Colitis. However I want to briefly talk about another condition that fecal transplants are used to treat: infection with anti-biotic resistant Clostridium Difficile, also known as c. diff. These infections result in chronic diarrhea and bleeding, often start after a person is treated with anti-biotics in the hospital for another medical condition. And last year at least 14,000 Americans died from c. diff infection.
Sadly much of this suffering can be prevented by treating c. diff infections with fecal transplants. If you know someone who has been hospitalized and is suffering from severe and chronic diarrhea, tell them about c. diff and about fecal transplants. It could very well save their life.
For more information about using fecal transplants to treat C. Diff-related Colitis or other illnesses like Ulcerative Colitis go to the website http://www.FecalTransplant.org. Thank you. “
