A reader forwarded me two reports, one from a male and one from a female. No notes on the people (I am fine with that). The report appear to be superior to uBiome on two counts:
- It’s a professional grade report from a clinical laboratory
- It reports down to the strain level on occasion.
Link to site (in Italian) http://www.ospedalebambinogesu.it/genetica-la-super-mappa-del-microbiota-intestinale#.Wf39d2i3xPY
This first post is on the female. (See this post for the male)
- Low Bifidobacteria
- No Lactobacillus
- No E. coli
- Low Akkermansia muciniphila (less than 1/100 of 1% of typical)
So standard CFS profile on these
Copying the data to Excel allow me to get similar numbers as I do from uBiome reports.
The greatest impact appears to be (in order) from Ruminococcus, Haemophilus parainfluenzae, Ruminococcus gnavus, Veillonella dispar. Since I have only done deep dives to the genus, not species level, I have borrowed directly from DataPunk.Net
- Ruminococcus: https://cfsremission.com/2017/10/18/reducing-ruminococcus-genus/
- Firmicutes -> Clostridia -> Clostridiales -> Lachnospiraceae -> Blautia -> Ruminococcus gnavus
- Firmicutes -> Negativicutes -> Selenomonadales -> Veillonellaceae -> Veillonella -> Veillonella dispar
- Firmicutes -> Clostridia -> Clostridiales -> unclassified Clostridiales -> Epulopiscium -> Epulopiscium dolichum
- Firmicutes -> Erysipelotrichia -> Erysipelotrichales -> Erysipelotrichaceae -> Coprobacillus (Pending deep dive)
- Firmicutes -> Clostridia -> Clostridiales -> Lachnospiraceae -> Blautia -> Blautia producta
- Clostridium : https://cfsremission.com/2017/10/07/decreasing-clostridium-genus/
- Firmicutes -> Clostridia -> Clostridiales -> unclassified Clostridiales -> Epulopiscium
Combining all of the lists and tossing out things that appear on both side, we have the following lists. There are two genus cited above that I have not done a deep dive into. I have skipped rare bacteria because of the number of over growths found. This was a pretty clean merge — often the same item appeared multiple times in one list or the other.
The lists below are done by merging the lists from the deep dives linked above. Some items may encourage one genus and discourage another genus — those are placed in inconclusive. The impact on Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and E.Coli are intentionally ignored [See this post for the logic]. This is all based on applying logic to the results of studies — thus theoretical. This is an addition (not a replacement) to this overview post.
- Proton-pump inhibitors (PPI) Cholic acid
- Resistant starch (type II, IV)
- Gynostemma pentaphyllum (Southern Ginseng or Jiaogulan) — not related to regular ginseng)

Note: Taking as a fresh herb may work similar to oil
