Fecal transplantation was pioneered by Dr. Thomas J. Borody from Sydney, Australlia. He was one of the first to start using it to treat people with Inflammatory Bowel Diseases like Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis along with IBS and the hearty bacterial infection Clostridium difficile. Fecal transplantation is starting to get some attention within the United States. Dr. Lawrence Brandt from New York, NY used bacteriotherapy to treat patients with Clostridium difficile & the University of Chicago is investigating running research trials on fecal transplantation.

Given that fecal transplantation is still very experimental it is hard to find a doctor who is willing to perform the procedure. Luckily, if you’re strong willed & not squeemish, you can perform fecal transplantation in your own home. Dr. Thomas J. Borody’s clinic created the “Home Probiotic Infusion Protocols” which gives you directions on how to perform bacteriotherapy at home. It’s important to note that it’s aimed at people who have visited his clinic & are doing things “by the book”.

Remember this is experimental, you are dealing with fecal matter that can make people ill if not properly handled & there is always the chance that it doesn’t help or makes your situation worse. If you need motiviation you can read about people’s experience with doing fecal transplantation at home.
