Another enhanced uBiome Analysis

I have been slowly working on this analysis for almost a month because it has a large number of high bacteria genus. Many of which needed deep dive.  When I got to the bottom line, I was delighted that there was few common Avoid/Take items.

Standard Items

The items below follow the high level patterns of all other CFS readers.

Usual major shift of ratios


Unlike most CFS readers (where at least one is at 0x, we have both > 0, just very low)


Enterobacteriaceae (Parent of E.Coli)  0.01X (low or no E.Coli is standard)

Biodiversity:  94%ile (very high — typical for CFS readers using uBiome)

Uncommon Bacteria


I will do an addendum later for these rate bacteria.

High Bacteria Genus

We have 14 genus >= 1.5, a new record!


Bacteria “Hit List”

Bottom Line Suggestions

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 removed (unless it seems that it strongly predominates on one). 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.
