Interesting. I have heard of some success with fecal transplants in autism. I wonder what the success rate would be for such treatments in bipolar. I am a bit skeptical that a fecal transplant (or probiotics) would eliminate the need for mood stabilizers entirely for most patients.

Also, diet, exercise, stress and medications can also alter the microbiome. Things like dirt exposure and other environmental factors too can have an impact. For example, some studies showed that rTMS can alter the microbiome (that is, the brain influencing gut bacteria). So, it's probably bidirectional.
