The Perfect Stool: Understanding and Healing the Gut Microbiome – Episode 31 Show Notes

How FMT Helped One Woman Read Emotions and Normalized Sound and Touch Sensitivities

Listen to Episode 31

What would it take for you to consider a Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT)? Amanda was 28 when she sought out an FMT at a clinic in Argentina to address her gut issues and psoriasis, but she was surprised when it drastically improved her sensitivity to sounds and touch, her ability to read other people’s emotions and improved her social awkwardness — qualities that she believes in retrospect were symptoms of autism. On this episode of The Perfect Stool, hear from Amanda, four years post-FMT, about the symptoms that led her to consider the procedure in the first place, how she selected a clinic for treatment, and the unexpected results she experienced.
