The usage of fecal transplants to diminish autism symptoms in children has likely been brought to the attention of parents more and more often in recent years. Numerous studies and research have been conducted in order to explore the effects of Fecal Transplantation (FT) on children with autism spectrum disorder.
These studies have, so far, shown that FT can help reduce symptoms associated with autism, including improved gut health, better focus and concentration levels, reduced gastrointestinal issues and increased energy levels.
In addition, FT has been found to positively influence the overall quality of life for people with autism. This is due to its ability to not only reduce symptoms but also reduce inflammation in the body and promote healthy bacteria growth in the gut.
What is a fecal transplant?
Fecal transplantation, scientifically known as bacteriotherapy, is the medical transfer of feces from a donor to a patient's gastrointestinal tract.
The main goal is to rebalance the recipient's digestive system by using core ingredients that will promote gut health. By stimulating growth of healthy bacteria, it is possibleto treat a number of issues like chronic gut conditions and gastrointestinal problems.
Feces therapy, also called 'poop therapy', is the act of using another person's stool to treat digestive issues. Its origins date back over 3,000 years in various cultures, but it only became mainstream within the last century. The Rise of popularity can be accredited to its potential benefits for those with autism. Below are some key reasons why:
A notable portion, between 30-50%, of all individuals on the autism spectrum are believed to experience chronic gastrointestinal issues
Research suggests that children with autism are four times more likely to experience gastrointestinal issues than their non-autistic peers
A staggering 85% of children who suffer from gastrointestinal issues also have autism spectrum disorder
A reduction in microbial diversity is often observed autism spectrum disorder
Fecal treatment has been suggested as a way to restore this microbial diversity, resulting in improved gastrointestinal health and quality of life for those with autism
The potential that fecal transplants offer for managing autism symptoms is why medical professionals and parents are increasingly taking notice. In fecal transplants, healthy microbes from a donor are transferred to the patient through a liquid or capsule solution. Once inside the body, these microbes can restore microbial diversity and balance by helping to weaken harmful bacteria that may be contributing to gastrointestinal symptoms in those with autism spectrum disorder.
Can fecal transplants treat autism symptoms?
The possible role of fecal microbiota transplants (FMT) in reducing autism symptoms is an area of recent interest, with several studies having been completed to investigate its potential. One study showed that autistic children aged 7-16 experienced an 80% reduction in gastrointestinal issues after undergoing FMT. The main focus was to use a high dose fecal transplant, followed by lower daily dosages, while also supplementing with antibiotic treatment and gut cleansing.
Though the results of this study indicate that FMT may be effective in reducing gastrointestinal issues, further research is needed to determine if it can improve other symptoms associated with autism.
Arizona State University has some of the top researchers in this area, who have done various studies on the correlation between fecal transplants and autism. A large breakthrough was made when they research concluded that autist symptoms could be reduced by up to 50%, and these effects last for two years after the transplant. This suggests that the procedure can be considered a semi-permanent or potentially permanent way to fix autism issues related to GI complaints.
This remarkable discovery has sparked a wave of optimism in the autism community. Parents are eager to try this method, as it offers a way to potentially rid their children of the physical and psychological pain caused by gastrointestinal issues.
This suggests that fecal transplants can directly reduce ASD symptoms in children by rebalancing the stomach bacteria. Various studies have shown a direct link between gut health and brain function, suggesting that IBD and other digestive issues could also be cured by transplanting healthy gut bacteria. A study conducted on mice found that fecal transplants from autistic and non-autistic donors can result in different gut health for the offspring, which leads to behavioral changes. The repetitive behaviors seen in the children of autistic mice were interesting examples of this theory.
This implies that fecal transplants can not only reduce symptoms of ASD in children, but could also be a way to treat other digestive issues. With further research and clinical trials, it is possible that this treatment could become widely used for people suffering from gastrointestinal problems and autism spectrum disorder.
