Remember when coffee enemas were a thing? People were convinced that shooting coffee up their bums would detox their colon. DIY kits were even sold on Gwyneth Paltrow's beauty and wellness website Goop, despite all the controversy surrounding the "cleansing treatment."
A friend of mine bought a DIY kit off a different website and was excited to spend a week "cleansing" her body. After only three days, she started experiencing sharp pains in her intestines. Needless to say, it was a traumatizing experience for her, and one she will regret for the rest of her life.
If you thought coffee enemas were a terrible idea, fecal transplants will have you questioning the sanity of the thousands of people who have tried this latest wellness trend.
The issue here isn't that fecal transplants exist, but that they're being done at home without consulting a doctor...
