  1. Thanks, Chris, very helpful. Any new info since you made this? I'm considering the fecal transplant (from a vegan friend who eats a raw foods diet) to help with IBS. (Given the "second brain" status of the stomach, and its production of serotonin, who knows, it might even help brain fog and ADD-like symptoms). Can making probiotics at home get easy for busy student types? If I could simply add the right starter to a home yogurt making machine, that'd be awesome.

    Btw, found you after looking for alternatives to the "Navage" system of nasal vacuum rinsing — I hope you'll follow up that video to comment on that new system, when you can.

  2. As a sufferer and a researcher of gastrointestinal issues, I completely agree commercial probiotics are rarely enough to restore the symbiotic balance.

    Vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs and dietary changes are all powerful adjuncts and necessary to a complete recovery.

    Probiotics of the future will be fecal transplants, either through traditional invasive procedures or enteric coated capsules.

    I would also recommend collagen rich bone (tendon) broth for its tissue healing effects.
    An incredible article on the benefits of broth in the diet. From my own personal experience its the most effective form of medicine that helps heal my gut, improves my mental outlook, with a side benefit of making my skin and hair look younger and more radiant.

    "The French were the leaders in gelatin research, which continued up to the 1950s. Gelatin was found to be useful in the treatment of a long list of diseases including peptic ulcers, tuberculosis, diabetes, muscle diseases, infectious diseases, jaundice and cancer. Babies had fewer digestive problems when gelatin was added to their milk. The American researcher Francis Pottenger pointed out that as gelatin is a hydrophilic colloid, which means that it attracts and holds liquids, it facilitates digestion by attracting digestive juices to food in the gut. Even the epicures recognized that broth-based soup did more than please the taste buds. “Soup is a healthy, light, nourishing food” said Brillant-Savarin, “good for all of humanity; it pleases the stomach, stimulates the appetite and prepares the digestion.”

    I consider gelatin to be the missing link in our modern western society. It's amino profile helps to balance the muscle proteins we as Americans consume so much of.
