  1. I saw a reference to using FMT for RA & Celiac disease, but have not found any research to back this up.
    Do you know of any studies or any doctors willing to use FMT for these conditions? I also have auto-immune hashimoto's thyroiditis and early signs of Parkinson's Disease.
    Thanks for any ideas

    1. I haven't seen anything specifically, but it is mentioned in this article at the Mayo Clinic -

      It's all quite new when we branch out into FMT being beneficial for conditions other than c-difficile or ulcerative colitis. Unfortunately the FDA in the USA have made it much more difficult and time consuming (and off-putting) for doctors who want to help their patients for all but the toughest cases of c-diff and that certainly doesn't help progress :-(

      Here is some more information that might be of some small help! and
