However, minor OCD with fans and holding/twiddling 2 of the same item remains.The transplant did seem to stabilize gut symptoms:
At the 3 1/2 week mark, still no bacteria flares or yeast flares, all with no antimicrobials and just 1 culturelle a day. Bowel movements are still really good with no diarrhea or blow outs. Appetite is nice too. Weight is steady with maybe a slow increase.I've previously written about the powerful affects that fecal transplants have on IBD, IBS, C. diff, Colitis and perhaps Multiple Sclerosis.
If anyone has any other information on how probiotics, prebiotics, or stool transplants work for Autism, do share them here to spread the word around.
As always, thanks for reading and sharing your opinions.
