Revisiting old Ubiome’s “G”

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 G:

  • Multi-year flu-like fatigue. Poor sleep onset. Sleep is non-restorative. Near constant brain fog, fatigue, and need for isolation. Proceeded by actual flu (trigger?). Intolerance to exercise despite good athletic conditioning. Unexplained skin rash covering upper arms. Lymph nodes near top of neck swell if antibiotics are discontinued. This is a relapse of episodes that have occurred for ~15 years. A combination of antibiotics and LDN seem to be currently controlling my symptoms. Life is tolerable with the addition of LDN. But I don’t feel like I’m actually healing… more just not getting worse or suffering as much. The antibiotics also cause stomach pain / intestinal upset (which I don’t have otherwise). Fairly normal blood work. No obvious thyroid issues.

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.
