I have been hearing this question more frequently lately, and there’s no doubt that is because there is much press on FMT and a range of conditions that seem to be benefiting from the treatment. Recent media such as http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/poop-pills-can-treat-c-difficile-calgary-doctor-says-1.1895079 are increasing the public awareness of the subject.
When I’m asked what alternatives there may be, I have one immediate thought. Colon hydrotherapy. If there is any way to give your gut as chance, it is to reduce the amount of imbalanced flora that may be there. Using the healing power of water to encourage a clean bowel can provide a better platform for probiotics and food-based bacteria to recolonize the GI tract.
