Fecal transplant seems to try to colonize better than kefir enemas. Ive done both and the fecal transplant gave a twitching sensation like it was trying to colonize. The fecal transplant did give me die-off like syptoms. Ive got to try to get rid of most of the candida in my colon before i do another series of fecal transplants. Im going to go on a diet that involves very small meals consisting of low fat fish,chicken,beef. Try to leave very little food/nutrition left over for the candida in my colon( no fiber,carbs for them to ferment). This seemed to work last summer as i did a kefir enema and had no die off syptoms but the kefir did not colonize. --so i relapsed. Once the candida gets weakened in the colon then i can do some sodium bicarb/anti-fungal enemas until i get no die off syptoms. Once their is no die-off syptoms then you pound the fecal transplants.
Before you do fecal implants make sure most of the candida is gone in your colon or else your going to have a war going on in your colon and will feel miserable! Ive done some anti-fungal enemas and i felt like absolute hell. i would do a anti-fungal enema to see how strong the candida is in your colon. I did a fecal tranplant with my son who is exactly the same blood type as me, i think he is a perfect match.
Good luckIf your constipated do a tea bag of senna with a little vitamin C. Senna is a diurectic so be sure replenish your electrolytes after it does its job.
Ive used Jarrow ibs formula which is suppose to be a human strain of L. Planturum. It gives me bad die-off. Im not ready for it yet. Candida has to be down to a minumum for probiotics to be effective. Otherwise it just creates a war in your intestines with very uncomfortable symptoms. If the candida is too strong it will just wipe out any probiotic you take and all your left over with is feeling like crap. This has been my experience with them for the last 2 years.
Maybe ill do a chocolate fecal martini :) My dog has eaten my sons poop before (our 3 year old son was getting the idea of popping outside like the dog) Especially after he's eaten a lot of fruit. Its pretty gross when our dogs breath smells like crap. We have to give him a dental bone.
Fecal transplant does seem to try to colonize more than the commercial probiotics. The kefir implant could be good for the beneficial acids that it produces. It might set a good environment for the good guys. But I dont see a plant strain colonizing that well. When I did some last summer it seems like it was just not colonizing. I did not have any die off at that time either. That was after my 2 month 0 carb/no fiber diet. The kefir enema did give me a boost of energy though. I cheated on my diet short after that--relapsed-- and did another kefir enema which did give me bad die-off.
Die-off syptoms were way too uncomfortable--nausea, extreme disorientation, feeling like your getting sick. I have to weaken the candida more before i can have any success with the enemas.
I dont mind some die-off but this was too much.
I agree with you indigo-- probiotics and vitamins are a waste of $$ until candida is down to the minimum. Trying to do probiotics when the candida is too strong --just aggravates the candida condition.
Nystatin worked for about 4 days and then quit on me. Did you do nystatin once your candida was down to a minimun?
Eating all those leafy greens did not make you bloated? I find doing a lot of green veggies makes me very relaxed. Doing all those leafy veggies gave you energy or made you tired?
Whats your opinion on chlrophyll being a diurectic. Ive read that a lot of leafy veggies can be diurectics.
How do you think the leafy greens helped with the candida? Is it the chlorophyll that keeps the candida from spreading?
I did alot of steamed chard once on a empty stomach and it felt like it just sat there for hours and hours. I had to juice it and then cook it with low temps for it to agree with me.
Lot's of people are trying it. For more info see my The Power of Poo blog and I've also just launched an FMT Discussion Group on Facebook. It’s a place to share experiences on home infusion, FMT clinics, FMT-friendly practitioners and donor testing. To protect membership privacy it’s a membership-only group that won’t display on your profile. To join just send a friendrequest to Sally Jones.
Let’s hope that this Facebook site won't be necessary in a few years' time when safe, accessible FMT becomes available to those who need it through normal medical channels!
