Neurological Conditions

That gut feeling…

People often talk about “going with your gut” or “my gut instinct” .  Many experts believe the gut is the second brain, which affirms the link between the digestive system and neurological state of mind and general health and wellbeing.

What are Neurological Conditions?

Neurological conditions are disorders of the brain, spine and interconnecting nerves.  The nervous system and gastro-intestinal tract talk to each other using bio-chemical signalling.  This is often referred to as the gut-brain axis.  This has shown the importance of a healthy gut to promote healthy brain function.

Neurological conditions include illnesses such as MS, Parkinsons and Autism, which have varying effects on sufferers.

FMT and Neurological Conditions

Patient experience:

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 9 years ago. About 2 years ago I started having some significant decline that I could no longer pretend wasn’t happening. My digestion, brain activity, walking and sight became impaired and I experienced fatigue all the time. I spent much of the day laying down.

I found Taymount once I began to learn about the microbiome and managed to get to England to do the 2 week treatment. While there I actually experienced a few days where I felt like all of my symptoms were gone! This was very telling to me and completely a miracle. Since being home, 3 weeks now, my digestion is hugely improved and my brain function. I feel more sharp and clear than I have felt in years. My walking is improving with every day and the fatigue is also getting much better. An SI joint injury that has been a major obstacle for my walking has finally begun to heal. I do not notice any weird sight things anymore and my sight is crisp. The fear that I have been in for years has lifted. This may be the best part of all and I can feel that daily I will continue to improve FINALLY! With all that I have tried over the years to help myself, I think I have finally found an answer. Once home I immediately started an online training I had been considering for almost a year but couldn’t get motivated to do. All this after steady decline for years.

The staff at Taymount are so wonderful. I enjoyed all the days I was there with them. They are professional and very caring. They made the experience nothing but pleasant and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience under the circumstances. I am very thankful to them.
