Most interesting experience Deburr! Thanks for sharing. I think it makes a lot of sense.
I have read through all the replies and was interested to note the references to Dr Borody's Human Probiotic Infusion treatment. That is because I am booked in for this treatment over the first two weeks of May. I am really looking forward to see the results of this.
I am 36 and have been suffering from Ulcerative Colitis since 1989. In recent years I have done much research and experimentation. I have found that I react badly to foods high in carbohydrates, simple and complex. So my staple diet is now meat and vegetables only. I use only Salofalk to control the colitis.
I was referred to Dr Borody because of a parasite infection. It took three different Antibiotic treatments over a period of time to resolve it, but the interesting thing was that after every treatment I became better for a while. After the last treatment last year I survived without any drug for six months. This has convinced Dr Borody that my condition is related to an unidentified pathogenic organism(s). So this time we are repeating the Antibiotics , but following it up with HPI to recolonise the colon with healthy bacteria.
One reader noted that they did not have a donor. This is not necessary. They have an established donor bank which I am using, from individuals that they have had good results from. It was interesting to note that they do not use females because of the hormone content. For those of you considering doing it yourself please note that the donors used are all extensively screened, so be careful.
I must say I felt most fortunate, when I found out the HPI treatment is only done in one place in the world, that it was in Sydney where I live. For those of you overseas considering it, sure it's expensive to fly, but make a holiday of it. Australia is a beautiful place!
