International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    The article also quotes study report by Borody (unpublished??).


    Borody TJ. Bacteriotherapy for chronic fatigue syndrome: a long-term followup study. Presented at the 1995 CFS National Consensus Conference.

    Tx. The link didn't work but I googled it. I'm not sure how our bodies work but I think I'd need my donor poop to be free of gluten, casein, soy, dyes, etc. I saw someone, Carlos ?, mention finding casein free poop.

    It just hit me. Is Metametrix or any other cdsa company involved in testing these ? Or involved in other gut research ? They have plenty to study.

    Fwiw, S boulardii appears helpful for c diff. So far just taking 1 will stop this problem for me. Kow.

    I just read in 'The Good Gut' (published 2015) that there are currently 40 FMT trials underway. I wonder what illnesses they're looking at...
