Dysbiosis -- FMT?

Hi, I've been severely unwell (completely house/bedridden) for 1.5 years. I do not know if GI issues triggered my CFS, but they have gotten a lot worse over the course of that year.

I just got some stool results back which show dysbiosis:

I haven't tested positive for anything else (Lyme etc.).

I'm wondering if it's worth looking into FMT, pending I can find a donor.

Sadly, I have not read of any success stories regarding FMT and CFS.

It certainly makes sense, I did 5 FMT's hoping it would help. I've struggled with IBS-C for over a year. I hoped it might help improve motility and possibly influence my overall health. My gut has long been a problem.

The logic is there considering the latest research on ME, to alter the biome in a positive way couldn't hurt. It may have helped me a little, but not for my constipation. I may try again with another donor. All donors are not equal.

I'm not completely housebound but the process itself requires a fair amount of effort and may be more than you are capable of.

My best.

I relate to your challenges and have read of success stories on facebook using LDN (low dose Naltrexone) see "got endorphins?" The administrator is very good, Brian Haviland.


In an attempt to get my life back I am trying everything, particularly thyroid with low T3, and following the testing in stopthethyroidmadness.com and recommendations like increasing vitamin D3 and iron to upper levels and a diet high in meat & some vegies.
We are all so different and i am finding, particularly with LDN that i have to go very low and very slow.

I just found out that my immune system is not only attacking my thyroid (Hashimoto's) but being highly allergic to most foods... how can anyone be allergic to sweet zucchini & parsley?

Anyway there are a lot of good people here with great information so i am doing my best and would like to encourage you to hang in there too. The most helpful protocols are shared and i believe the information we can get here is priceless - better than any doctor and especially any drugs - because this is what really works with real people. Best wishes.
