The following is a conversation over email with a person who bought my book about how to use fecal transplants to cure Ulcerative Colitis. For more information check out a copy of my book about how Fecal Transplant Cures Ulcerative Colitis However the information in my book will also help you if you are using fecal transplants to treat other conditions like Crohn’s Disease and c. diff related Colitis.
Thank you Michael!
My issue was a re-occurring C-diff infection, so I was cured in one application. I feel better today than I have in five months. You are like an angel to me…a miracle. I am so happy today. I know many people who will benefit from your message; like my nephew, who is your age and has suffered from Crohn’s disease for over ten years now. I’m sending him a link to your video.
I’ve sent your link to three other people so far. My sister-in-law, whose son is suffering from Crohn’s was so happy, she said “I finally have hope again.”
I had to do one more application this morning for a bit of a relapse, but now my gut is quiet, calm and happy….still eating soup and taking things slow. I can’t thank you enough for your thorough information.
Thanks again for your tenacity in spreading this information and your user- friendly delivery of it.
I’m glad it worked for you, oftentimes if c. diff is the only problem then it only takes one shot. So hopefully that will be enough.
Well Michael…I may have spoken too soon.
I had a relapse this week and had to go into the doctor. (I think the immunosuppressant piece may be crucial). My doctor was very interested in the fecal transplant..and asked for the detail of how I did it. He says that our Kaiser facility does them through colonoscope, but I would have to qualify as a candidate, so I went to see the GI doctor, but she said I don’t. (I think you have to be practically dieing first).
I will start up again after my colonoscopy Monday.
Then I stopped the fecal transplants for a week and then piled on the drugs, Bupropion 300 mg, Doxepin 6 mg, Apriso, mesalamine suppositories and upped the whey protein shakes to 3 times a day all on the same day while continuing on 40 mg of Prednisone. Then I had my big break through of mostly solid stool in late July 2011, and I starting tapering off the Prednisone over the next two weeks. Then I tried to stop the Apriso, but noticed things were back sliding a little, so then I went back on the Apriso. By December 2011 I finished tapering off the Apriso and have never taken it again. Since then I have taken Bupropion on and off and sometimes Valerian root extract for sleep, which also helps stool quality. I believe that even though I have not had blood in stool since July 2011 nor periods of time with chronic, urgent diarrhea there is still some variation from time to time. I believe that diet and / or Irritable Bowel Syndrome influenced by stress and possibly some residual bacterial imbalances might still have a slight impact, but I am still better off than I have been for most of my life.
I’m lactose intolerant, so homemade soy shakes are a daily menu item….and Dicyclomine is keeping everything calm for now. The only piece I don’t have is the immunosuppressant, but I’m going ahead without that…we’ll see.
“bacteria memory” resets itself could be one explanation for why immune suppressant drugs could help this process. Another explanation is just that the inflammation needs to be brought under control for a new, stable, helpful bacterial colony to take root.
