Faecal Microbiome Transplant (FMT)

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.

However, recently, with the Covid-19 outbreak, there is increasingly strong published evidence that the stool of Covid-19 sufferers, many of whom are asymptomatic, contains significant amounts of Covid-19. Therefore, this has become a potential infection risk and means that the use of human-derived donor implants is no longer viable. We are now using implants of a variety of probiotics and prebiotics, directly into the colon, using a simple catheter.  This procedure is called Gut Flora Replacement.  Again, this is done in 10 treatments. This is a completely safe option and is without risk. It is a very much safer option than using donor implants.
