Curing Irritable Bowel Syndrome with an Eggnog

Summary:
Most cases of IBS are caused by the bacterium Clostridium difficile (Cdiff) or by a common yeast such as Candida. I propose to isolate Cdiff and/or Candida spp., kill them, prepare them as soluble antigens, and inject the solution into chickens. The work product of chickens is eggs, which bear the immune response of the chicken to antigenic challenge as IgY in the egg white. The egg is consumed by the sufferer, and the antibodies will bind to and neutralize the Cdiff or Candida in the gut of the sufferer.

Full Description:
The method is actually well described above. There are tricks to growing up Cdiff and Candida, but I have a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Chicago, and have grown up microorganisms in 100-liter batches as part of my thesis project. I don't wish to reveal all the tricks here. The method can clearly be customized for the individual sufferer by collecting a sample of feces, isolating the particular noxious strains of bacteria/yeast in that individual, and growing up these strains and making an antigen solution for injection into dedicated chickens. I believe that this procedure will be more powerful than ProBiotics because, while a capsule of ProBiotic bacteria may include hundreds of millions or even billions of "good" bacteria, these are forced to compete 1-on-1 with the billions to trillions of gut bacteria, whereas the number of IgY antibodies in a single egg white may number into the high trillions to quadrillions (you do the math).

Problem this idea/invention addresses:
Treating and potentially curing irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) by means of an eggnog.
