Let’s talk about the gut microbiome: What is our gut microbiome? Why is it important for our overall health and well-being? What happens when the gut becomes dysfunctional?

This video covers some important questions about the importance of a health microbiome and the functions in plays in our bodies: What are the functions of the gut microbiome? What can damage the gut microbiome? What can you do to support you gut microbiome?

This video talks about what happens when the gut becomes dysfunctional, and the role probiotics and FMT can play in restoring it: What diseases are tied to gut dysfunction? What can restore the gut microbiome?

This video covers what FMT is and how it might be a successful treatment option for many diseases, or so the research is set to find out.

How long do you think forms of FMT have been around?

a.) 50 years b.) 1700 years c.) 250 years

Fecal Microbiota Transplantation or FMT, is the process of repairing your unhealthy gut microbiome using the healthy gut microbiome from a donor. This process has been around for centuries in one form or another, and recently has seen revitalized amount of research because of the success it has had in treating a condition called c difficile. Now, companies like Novel Biome are using FMT capsules to more easliy administer FMT to patients. In this video we look at the methods used to administer FMT and talk about the benefits and drawbacks to keep in mind when considering if FMT is right for you.

There is some debate over the effectiveness of fresh vs frozen stool preparations in the application of FMT. In this episode we talk about this debate and what Novel Biome is doing for its patients.

In this video, Shaina Cahill discusses the stability of frozen stool for fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT). FMT is a medical procedure in which fecal matter, or stool, from a healthy donor is transplanted into the intestine of a person with a gastrointestinal disorder. Frozen stool can be used for FMT, but it is important to consider the stability of the frozen stool to ensure its effectiveness. Shaina covers the factors that can affect the stability of frozen stool, such as the length of time it has been frozen, the temperature it has been stored at, and the presence of any contaminants. She also discusses strategies for preserving the stability of frozen stool, including proper storage techniques and the use of freezing agents. By understanding the stability of frozen stool, you can ensure a successful FMT using this method.

In this video, we will dive deep into the fascinating world of the gut-brain connection, exploring the intricate link between what we eat and how we feel. You may have heard the phrase "you are what you eat," and in the case of the gut-brain axis, this couldn't be more true. We'll start by breaking down the science behind this connection, including the role of the enteric nervous system, gut microbiota, and neurotransmitters. Whether you're looking to optimize your brain function, improve your mood, or simply learn more about the incredible connection between your gut and your brain, this video is for you. So grab a healthy snack and join us for a fascinating exploration of the gut-brain axis and the power of food for thought.

In this video, we explore the fascinating connection between the gut and the brain, and how they communicate with each other to impact our physical and mental health. We delve into the science behind the gut-brain axis, and provide practical tips on how you can support a healthy gut-brain connection.
