hey mf15 and others who have had dilemmas on acid suppression for fmt,Acid suppression not sure might be a bad idea, let the body sort out what it wants to kill.
As far as what you are doing limit the stools exposure to air as much as possible, it may kill the strict anaerobes, and saline may also kill, do to osmotic rupture of cells.
Mashing the stool may not also be a good idea,air exposure.
My worry about doing oral stools for one thing is aspiration into the lungs, sounds like
a good way to get a really bad infection.
Then also stool gets stuck in your teeth and other mouth parts.
Perhaps the triple gel cap method is the safer way, at least for lung aspiration.
SIBO is a possible eating poo.
If you fill the small cap with solid poo and use gloves for that step, then change gloves
and are carefull, the surface of the next cap should be clean and don't have to worry about
mouth on lungs unless you vomit. The last thing you want to do is vomit.
Using 3 caps probably the less chance that the outside is contaminated.
I am not as brave as you as of yet, thanks for doing this important self study.
here is a double gel cap method
here is the triple method,
do read up this entire study on this...
it talks about how even acid resistant bacteria have very low tolerability under stomach acid.
even baking soda effectively lowers stomach acid.
just read up, pretty interesting I might add..
