My son recently spent three weeks at the Newbery Medicine to treat his steroid-dependent Ulcerative Colitis. The quality of care and attention he received there was amazing. Making the journey from the U.S. was not something we entered into lightly, but after years of research. Dr. Silvio Najt is one of the top minds in FMT, and his approach to the procedure cemented our decision.

Two things were very important in our selection of the Newbery Medicine. The first was their preparation protocol for induction. Many clinics favor antibiotics or hydrocolonics stripping the colon of its microbiome. Dr. Najt has experienced great success by using a brief course of steroids to reduce inflammation, as the ultimate goal of FMT is to increase bacterial diversity.

The second factor for us was that this clinic uses fresh samples carefully collected to nurture the highest bacterial variety rather than frozen. A frozen sample has already killed off many bacteria and they may just be the ones needed to overcome dysbiosis.

After our experience at the clinic, I feel that Dr. Najt is the best choice if you are considering the protocol. You will not find the level of professional care and attention he and his staff provide anywhere else, and his understanding of immunology and compassion for his patients is unequaled.
