Fecal Transplants?!?

    It is not like we have lots of drug choices for Crohns. Looks like fecal transplant is safe, and if it brings remission why not try it?
    There is a doctor in Australia who uses it to treat colitis (Thomas Borody) – I didn’t know it can be done at home – thanks for posting this.
