A 73-year-old man from South Jersey is promoting the donation of “perfect poop” to people with life-threatening digestive disorders.
Herbie Allen of Brigantine learned he has “perfect poop” when his late wife was experiencing serious colon problems that hospitalized her.
Allen’s healthy diet — which has a long list including fruits, fish, honey, room-temperature food and vitamins — contains no soda, sweets, meat, fried foods or alcohol. It helped make him a perfect candidate to donate his good bacteria-carrying poop.
“I’m just going to eat perfect foods,” he said in an interview. “I’ve never been sick.”
Allen found out that he has what doctors call “perfect poop” when his late wife, Pattie, went through repeated antibiotic treatments that wiped out the good bacteria in her colon, a disease called C-diff. She needed a fecal transplant to help her recover.
A good donor candidate is an adult in top health who undergoes an extensive series of tests — both stool and blood. Among medical professionals, Allen gained a nickname, “Perfect Poop Guy.”
Hie wife “was very ill when her medical team suggested a Fecal Microbiota Transplant as a treatment plan,” Allen said on his website. “My wife, knowing that I have spent my life eating healthy. . . requested that they test me first to see if I would qualify to be a donor. Well, not only did my tests all pass the requirements, I was deemed as being the guy with the PERFECT POOP! We successfully were able to heal my wife’s gut with this unusual but life-changing scientific procedure.”
He recently paid $5,500 for a billboard along the Atlantic City Expressway near the Pleasantville exit to promote his specialized knowledge about poop and diets.
The former Atlantic City casino host also started putting out videos and posts that highlight his healthy lifestyle and tips you can take in your own life to feel better and to hopefully live “a healthier, longer life.”
“If I can help you get another day with your grandchild or another week, I’m making a difference,” Allen said.
