Who here has undergone a focal transplant? Are there any risks for Lyme patients?

I do not hav c diff but have not felt right since all my antibiotics and parasite treatments. Have been considering traveling oversseas for this treatment.

Any complications to consider?

I am currently doing bee sting therapy which I will have to suspend for the duration of the treatment. I’ve been told venom can affect gut bacteria but I don’t see how this could be....it seems unlikely that venom is reaching the lining of the gut.

Did you ever go through with this? I have heard of others doing this on their own by finding donors and and having samples submitted for parasitology testing.

the Taylor clinic in the UK seems to be one of the more professional outfits for this

have a cohort of registered screened donors and a 3-month quarantine type system

also only implant the bacteria - not the fecal material which is supposed to be better tolerated
