A humorous headline, a very un-funny condition. C Diff is a gut flora that out-competes healthy gut bacteria, creating fantastic diarrhea and cramping. This is rough stuff for little kids and older people, bringing on dehydration.
A treatment introducing healthy bacteria back into the system is odd, but thankfully effective.
I have no doubt that theoretically there is some validity to this practice.... but like blood transfusions... it’s not rocket science to get one from a healthy, genetically connected “family member”?
My family has always done so per my 50 year practicing Dad, The GP Genius.
