A year ago, several readers shared their ubiome for me and I did a series of post looking for patterns. See this post on the Genus Numbers.
It is time that I do deep dives for these early sharers.
- ME/CFS for 20 years, 90-100% functional for years 2-8, 60 – 80% functional for years 9-16, 10% – 70% functional for years 16-20 Currently about 50%-60% again. Main symptoms, fatigue, lack of energy, feeling crappy (flu-like), get sick easily and stay sick for months (I have 2 kids 8 – 10 now so they kept bring home infections) no brain fog now, but currently issues with a tired brain, IBS or dysbiosis, Urinary Issues

Bottom Line Suggestions
The items from each of the deep dives aligned very nicely for this microbiome, for example, Inulin was listed many times.
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.
- Bifidobacterim Breve
- High Fat Diet
- Lactobacillus salivarius
- Lysine supplements and foods
- Omega 3
- Saccharomyces boulardii
- Soluble corn fiber
- Walnuts (and likely no pomegranate – both are high urolithin)
- Cranberry bean flour
- Galactooligosaccharides (GOS)
- High Protein Diet
- Lactobacillus kefiri LKF01
- Lactobacillus paracasei
- palm kernel meal
- Resistant starch (type II)
- Sodium chloride (Table Salt)

Always consult with your medical professional before doing any changes of diet, supplements or activity. Some items cites may interfere with prescription medicines.
