Achieving Cures Together
Achieving Cures Together is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on a mission to save lives by advancing microbiome research.
Over the past two decades our gut microbes, the bacteria, fungi and viruses that reside in our gastrointestinal tract and break down and digest food, have drastically declined in diversity. This is primarily due to our heavy antibiotic usage, our Western diet, and our clean, sanitized lifestyle. With this decrease in diversity, our society is experiencing rapid growth in many diseases and disorders such as Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Autism, Superbugs, Depression, Obesity, Diabetes, Allergies and more.
Achieving Cures Together exists to advance microbiome research and find cures to these horrific diseases. To do this, we’ve partnered with world-leading researchers at the University of Minnesota where we are studying the benefits of fecal transplants and the restoration of damaged gut microbes. We believe microbial restoration has significant healing potential and this therapy has already proven to be very successful for a number of applications. Notably, ACT has supported treatment for over 590 people suffering from Clostridium difficile, an antibiotic resistant superbug. This is just the beginning and with your support, we will continue to save lives!
