Revisiting old Ubiome’s “E”

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 E:

  • My symptoms are ibs and exercise intolerance, joint pain, headaches (cfs). I’ve been taking a lot of the “goodbelly” brand of probiotic drinks. And the jarrow brand “ideal bowel support 299v” probiotic pills. These are two brands of the same probiotic. They significantly reduce my ibs symptoms. I came down with ibs 16 years ago, and the cfs started about 5 years after that.

There is only a single bacteria genus > 1.5 (my arbitrary threshold)

Genus E
Bacteroides 2.33


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.
