Post FMT

The aim of the FMT is to reset your gut microbiota and recolonise your gut with a completely new and healthy balance of good bacteria with a large biodiversity and mass. In order to assist the recolonisation process it is important that you continue to nourish the new bacteria that are attempting to terra-form in your colon.

 

They require a steady source of food and fuel to permanently change your microbiome for the better and need occasional top ups of bacteria from time to time. This can be achieved by allowing this protocol and continuing a monthly FMT top up.

 

Following your human faecal microbial transplant it is important that you follow these basic lifestyle rules to achieve the best result possible.

 

Please follow them long term, your new microbiome will love it.
