Core Tip There is a growing interest on the use of fecal transplantation for chronic intestinal conditions. In the article “Fecal microbiota transplantation: Historical review and current perspective”, the researchers found that although the ancient fecal transplantations did not have any background support from life science, but healers of those days should be fully aware of the acting value for variety of gastrointestinal derangements. The first written record on the oral use of fecal matter was 770 B. C. A fecal product called “golden juice” were prepared for “detoxication”. The next record appeared in the Han Dynasty (206 B. C.~220 A. D.) and fecal material was reported to be used during epidemics. Under special circumstances, such obscure but intimate product could provide unexpected outcome. If any benefit did come out from the old practice, it could not have been related to live-microbiome. Today, we are working on various ways to changes the microbiome at different levels of the gut and for a variety of gastro intestinal derangements. It might have counter acting value under desperate situations of uncontrolled acute or chronic circumstances.
