The scientific world is exploding with discoveries about the gut and its ‘microbiome’ – the bacterial contents. These bacteria impact many aspects of our health. The need for healthy gut bacteria may be the misunderstood link between those who suffer catastrophic illnesses, and those who do not.

There is growing evidence that the best way to radically and rapidly improve the health of your gut is by having a Faecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT) - a treatment that has been safely administered for decades to thousands of people both in Australia and around the world.

Medicinal FMT material may soon be reclassified by the Australian TGA, and there is a concern that the wrong classification may result in a severe restriction of the availability of this treatment.

I am asking for your help to make ensure this vital treatment option remains available to those who need it, and those who want to study it. Please sign this petition to have FMT classified as an organ rather than a biological so the medical community can continue their work in this field. If you know anyone who suffers from depression, gut issues, autoimmune diseases, colitis or Crohn’s disease, or cancer, then PLEASE not only sign, but share and advocate as well.

Personal story
My brother has suffered from severe gut problems for many years with little if any improvement through traditional medical channels. His symptoms are debilitating at times and completely disruptive to a normal life. He has managed his condition for nearly 10 years with medications and a prohibitive diet, but the condition always seems to return. FMT has helped many with such a disorder and may provide him with permanent relief. I would like this treatment to be available for him.
