This is a well written account of one family’s experience with at-home human probiotic infusion therapy. The nature of the treatment makes this a tough, almost taboo subject, but the author writes about it frankly and directly. You really get a sense of what desperate ends this family was at with the daughter’s worsening UC, and why they ultimately decided to try this unconventional at-home treatment. It’s clear they’ve experienced a degree of success that has made their efforts worthwhile. The author describes their process and results, and also provides a frank assessment of what and what not to expect. There’s a detailed how-to section here that should be a great help to UC sufferers curious about how an at-home treatment might be administered. Overall, a helpful and honest account, as well as an entertaining read.
