Revisiting old Ubiome’s “B”

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.

Results B

  • Sure, I got sick with ME after an infection I probably picked up on the airplane back from Asia. Probably lived in mold a few years prior to that that probably took my immune system down too, before the final straw with the infection. Major symptoms: fatigue, unable to do much physically, brainfog, get tired of concentrating too much and being social, my head “shuts down”, joint pain, muscle pain, headaches, swollen lymph nodes, feeling like a flu is coming on very frequently, everything is made worse by too much exertion I do not think I did much probiotics before the sample was done actually…

Deep Dive References


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.
