A fecal microbiota transplant is a procedure that is done by transferring stool from one person to another. The fecal transplant, or stool transplant, is something an estimated 10,000 Americans do at home every year to fight infections associated with diarrhea, abdominal cramping, and even fever.

Fecal transplants are believed to date back to over 1,700 years ago during the fourth century when Chinese scholar Ge Hong made yellow soup from fermented stools to treat diarrhea.

But today, a fecal transplant is used to treat Clostridium Difficile Infection, or C. Diff., a bacterial infection that affects the colon and can weaken patients immune systems.

Our digestive system is home to thousands of bacteria, both good bacteria and bad bacteria, that are released in our stool. So, in theory, when you eat healthy poop, the good bacteria ends up in your Gastrointestinal Intestinal Tract, which could help to knock out the C. Diff.

Fecal transplants are now supported by the Infectious Disease Society and the GI Society in Europe and the U.S. as a strongly supported treatment for multiple recurrent C. Diff infections.
