Fecal Transfusions - Be A Donor!
Researchers have discovered that fecal therapy beats the crap out of antibiotic therapy for some people.
Up to 3 million Americans are infected with severe cases of Clostridium difficile (C. diff) annually. Scientists have found that fecal bacteriotherapy can be the cure for cases where antibiotic therapies are resistant. Apparently, this isn't a new therapy. Some doctors have been in the stool transplanting business for years.
Doctors have had excellent success with fecal transplants. They find that replacing healthy bacteria with person's suffering with an overload of bad bacteria can help balance things out. While it's invasive, patients say it's the only thing that stopped their severe stomach cramping and diarrhea and it was well worth their cooperation.
The Other Alternative
While I take advantage of the comic relief in this situation this sh*& is totally true! According to some patients, it was the only thing that cured them. Bacteria that become resistant to antibiotic therapy can become overwhelming for the body. Some sufferers resist fecal transfusion at first because it sounds awful but after days or weeks of no relief they are desperate enough to break that barrier. If you can't stop crapping your pants, you might want to ask your doctor about the lesser known alternative.
If you suffer from chronic diarrhea you may want to consider a fecal transfusion! This might even save your life. I bet Louis Pasteur would be jealous.
Promote your sh*&! Be proud to be a donor. I want to see bumper stickers and decals for automobiles that boast, "I GAVE A SHIT!" For a second time donor they can upgrade their status and get an "I gave 2 sh*&s!" sticker. I want to see "SH*& Banks" and dumping stations. I'd like to see marathons run and drives held for this cause. American's unabashedly parade around collecting money for other causes, why not this one?
Help your 3 million fellow American's overcome chronic diarrhea.
I expect that a foundation should be formed and perhaps a trust. A trust would require a board of trustees. Maybe they could call it the "Sh*& Foundation" or the "Excrement Foundation" if you want to make it sound more sophisticated. Who wants to be on the Sh&* board? We would need an executive Sh*& and a couple of chiefs. Who knew that being on the sh*& list could mean so much?
Doctors fear that knowledge about this treatment is spread too thin. They worry that potential patients just aren't ready to hear about it or talk about it. Fear not...I am here to help spread the message.
I am doing my part and spreading the word. I really do give a shi*&!
Have a heart....Give a Little Bit!

See? It's real!
- Fecal transplants could be a cheap and effective treatment for certain infections. - Slate Magazine
Evidence has been accumulating for years that gut infections can be treated by introducing beneficial bacteria. A reliable source of healthy bacteria may be healthy people’s feces. Two years ago, Emily Walker explained how and why fecal transfer may
