I would - but I'm not sure why a fecal transplant would take place via the nose. That's not the end that has fecal matter.

I think it goes through the nose and down to the stomach, so that you get the bacteria spread throughout the whole GI tract as it makes its way down.

Rectal application wouldn't go far enough up through the system.

Perhaps so.

They've had good luck with fecal transplants. It's worth doing when the situation calls for it.

Would smelling enough farts have the same effect?

This is a rare and experimental treatment. Also, it's not like they take raw fecal matter and place it inside you. Only 500 times, since the 1950's, has this procedure been performed. I would take the usual treatment which is antibiotics.

It sucks that it'd have to be someone I share an environment with. I wish, if I were in that situation, I could be like, "I request a celebrity poop" (from the make a wish foundation or whatever) and receive the poop of my favorite celebrity of the moment.

Not that I'm celebrity-obsessed...

Like, if I had a significant other, I'd take theirs.
In absence of that, I'd really prefer some celebrity over anyone in my family. I don't want their poop. Family, I reject your poops.
