Using POOP As Medicine | New Research!

  • Published: 24 October 2019
  • Talking about the utility of poop today and I bet you didn't even expect it. We have been using fecal (poop) transplants for some time now as a way of treated antibiotic-resistant C.Diff infections. However recently there's been some interesting research looking into if transplanting poop can help with IBS- Irritable bowel Syndrome. Well here's my thoughts on the study.

                          could we do a cerebro-fecal transplant? excise the brain from one individual and use it as feces to implant into another individual?

                            I learned about this a while ago from a podcast, but I haven’t found it to be available near me. I have IBS-D and wonder if it would be beneficial.

                                  okay i'm just throwing this out here. here's my problem with diagnosing IBS. where I live there's not a big tradition about asking the patients mental health, keep this in mind. so I was diagnosed with IBS in my senior year in hs, had all the usual symptoms. they prescribed some medicine wchich did now work a lot, but were better than nothing. however then I got admitted to uni, went on with my life, and the IBS basically disappeared and appeared when I was in a stressful time. I'm not saying that IBS doesn't exist but there should be a thourough testing. It was clear for me that I just had a really long term stress response (if thats the term) and eventually got misdiagnosed because nobody cared about my mental health (which was in terrible shape considering choosing and applying unis, i was really afraid i wasnt going to get in) i believe IBS exists but i think doctors shouldnt just hand out ibs diagnosis to everyone who comes along with the symptoms and all the tests negative. we need to take mental health into account.

                                              I know it's a small detail but it made me real happy when he said not to confuse IBS with IBD, I have Crohns disease and I am so tired of people saying "oh I know what it's like, I have IBS!" like okay.. Sorry you have that but it's not the same at all.
