Anyone tried this? Several people have recommended it to me recently as an effective treatment for colitis and IBS. Basically you get a stool sample from a healthy-boweled person (a baby would be ideal, but some people have also used their spouse) and inject it in your colon with an enema. It repopulates you with the right bacteria.
I'm not saying I'm about to knock on my next-door neighbour's door to ask to borrow a cup of his poop. But still, you gotta admit, it's interesting!

On an unrelated note, I've done two weeks on the Paleo diet and so far it's really working for me.

IBS-C, lots of spasm and trapped gas.
