Two quite specific questions about HMorg specifically (feel free to move to forum if there's a better place for it):
1) How does the shipping cost compare to the cost of capsules/stool? In other words, how many capsules worth of money can be saved for each extra shipment that is eliminated by combining it with another (provided all shipments are from the same donor, such that combining is even possible)?

2) Any information on diet of donors? I have a dairy allergy and if I recall correctly, OpenBiome donors eat a hypo-allergenic diet prior to donation. My allergy isn't life threatening or anything so it's not so much a safety issue, but still, exposure to dairy and foods I'm sensitive to causes flares--so first if there are two roughly equivalent donors but one eats large amounts of foods I'm sensitive to, it might be wise to avoid that donor, and secondly, even if exposure is unavoidable it's good to know so that I can better separate food reactions (which are likely to be short term) from microbiome effects (which are likely to be more persistent).

Michael, hi! I have some viable information and experience with donors and administering FMT’s. My husband and I traveled to Australia to meet with Prof. Borody, he taught me everything I needed to know and together we cured my husband of his ulcerative colitis. The donor does not have to be super, perhaps more FMT’s are required to achieve the end result. It works, like manure works to fertilize!
