Welcome to Designer Shit

Welcome to Designer Shit, our site is both a resource hub for those interested in FMT (Fecal Microbiota Transplants) and the microbiome, as well as the home base for our documentary film “Designer Shit.” On this site you will be able to keep up with the film’s progress and find out everything you need to know about FMT and the microbiome.

Our journey into the world of FMT began with our director Saffron Cassaday. Saffron has suffered from Ulcerative Colitis for the past 10 years. In the years since her diagnosis, Saffron has tried all sorts of diets and medications to get her disease under control. In Designer Shit, she reckons with whether or not to start FMT at home, against the wishes of her doctor. She decides to do her research by meeting with some of the top experts on fecal transplants and the microbiome. In the film she covers how Fecal Transplants are being used to treat her illness, as well as a whole host microbiome-related illnesses from obesity to Autism.

In the blog, we’ll be bringing you all the latest on FMT, including news and studies from the medical community. We’ll also keep you up to date with Saffron’s journey with Colitis and FMT.

In our FAQ section you will be able to get quick answers to any of your FMT and microbiome-related questions, from “how does FMT work?” to “what are the risks of FMT?”

Within our informational articles, we will share detailed guides and in-depth information on FMT, and its uses as a medical therapy.

We aim to be your go-to source for all things FMT. We hope you find out site helpful and entertaining. If you want to keep up with all our postings subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
