Fecal Transplant - Microbial treatment
« on: February 04, 2017, 09:34:28 PM »
Hi guys,

This is my first post on the forum - I am a 24 year old male who just graduated from university last year and have been working in my first full-time job.

I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis when I was just 9 years old - caused by a horrific bacteria called C-Difficile, which had been detected and cured at the age of 15 through a fecal microbiota transplant (poop from a healthy donor gets injected into your body through the anus/rectum - designed to equip you with millions of healthy types of bacteria in order to rebuild your lower digestive system)

However, ever since I hit puberty at age 15, I noticed the typical POIS symptoms every time I ejaculate - brain fog, anxiety, depression, sore muscles, fever, widespread pain, amongst others.

I really feel like most of you guys, has stopped me from living life to my full potential.

I recently went and saw an autoimmune specialist who put me on Zyrtec (anti-histamine) every morning and soon before O, and it seemed to have diminished the severity of symptoms from about a 9 to a 6.5 (not too much).

However I have had some recurring gut issues lately, and I suspect many food sensitivities. I am currently on a gluten and dairy free diet, as these foods tend to trigger similar symptoms to the above every time I consume.

So I am going in for a 5-day consecutive run of fecal transplant therapy to see if fixing the gut altogether will cure my POIS overtime. I'm hoping it will be a major breakthrough for my body, and subsequently, give you guys some hope.

The transplants were traditionally to be used for patients with bowel disorders, however it seems to be working for people with other autoimmune problems, as the gut is technically our body's second brain. Refer to the link below for an example of how FMT has been used to cure/reduce symptoms of patients with autism.

I'll keep you updated on my progress, I'm on a mission to improve not only my life but for all of you involved here.

Best wishes to all,
