I wanted to know what critieria you used for your donor when doing an at-home fecal transfer. I'm doing a fecal transfer on my young son to repopulate his gut. His stools smell horrific and look like mud every single day unless he ONLY eats meat and eggs and drinks broth. No diary, no grains, no sugar, no fruits, no veggies and no nuts etc < ----- if he those things, his stools smell like something died in his rectum and and smells like death. I've taken his diapers to his peditrician and he said it was fine. It's not. I know his gut flora is bad, bad, bad. We've been on the GAPS diet for 10 months to heal his gut with little success. I don't think a fecal transfer is drastic; I think it's natural and the absolutely, very best way to get the good bacteria in his gut. We've drained our bank account on expensive probiotics that did virtually nothing. If I don't heal my son, he'll only get worse.
I have found a donor and she is healthy and according to her mother (and my friend), she has had a normal stool since she's been born - no constipation and diarrhea only when she has a stomach bug.
I would like to know from those persons who have done fecal transfer what your criteria was for choosing a healthy stool donor. I understand a family member would be best for my son but none of our guts are in good enough shape to be used as an donor.
