Faecal Microbiome Transplant (FMT) is a process whereby faecal bacteria from a healthy, screened donor is put into the colon of the recipient using a simple catheter, this is done by Nurses. Generally speaking, this is conducted for 10 treatments.
Regarding human health and Faecal Microbiome Transplants there have been thousands of papers published over the last few years linking changes in gut flora composition to allergies, asthma, obesity, cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Parkinson’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Ulcerative Colitis. This does not mean that this treatment is curative for these conditions but the outcomes from this kind of treatment have been remarkable. These outcomes having been anecdotal, have not yet fed into significant size Randomised Control Studies, so these have yet to be done on the various conditions mentioned using this approach.

If you want to watch a short video about the function of the microbiome, please take a look at this film. We didn’t produce it but we think it explains the function well. https://youtu.be/YB-8JEo_0bl
