The combo antibiotic therapy put me into remission.
I now believe that the fusobacterium destroys the ecology of the gut which leads to UC. FT will bring the gut ecology back in balance but eventually the fasobacterium will destroy the ecology of the gut again.
This is just my theory
If that were the case, then at least one or two of Borody's six patients would have had a relapse in the 10-15 years they were each in perfect, clean remission without maintenance drugs.
Everytime someone claims a singular cause for all UC, and a singular treatment alongside it, it is easily refuted. It should also be noted that many on this forum tried FT at home and had little success. Of course, the methods or donors they used could be the cause, but it should also be recognized that FT still may not work for everyone.
Either way, this is brilliant to see. I'd have this done in a heartbeat if I could afford to go to NY and see Dr. G.
