Revisiting old Ubiome’s “L”

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 L:

  • on Canadian consensus criteria1) post-exertion fatigue and malaise I meet all criteria (A B and C)
    2) both unrefreshing sleep and a new pattern (trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep and some nights without sleep
    3) yes muscular aches and pains in legs and arms face neck and head, and headaches, forehead back of head and sides + of course the migraine
    4) A, B C (issues with noise and sound, re perhaps also anxiety I find it very hard to watch tv and often have to skip anxiety inducing bits or things that are too emotional.) D if vertigo and tinnitus count (but I had these before and associate them with migraines) . E  lots of brain fog type confusion.
    5)A: 2(POTS) 3 (Vertigo) 5 (IBS the alternate type but mostly D) 6 (palpitations), , 8 respiratory irregularities, I seem to overbreathe a lot and often find I am overinflated.
    B:I think 1 and 5, I have had low auxiliary basal body temperature clustering around 35C; and I do not handle stress at all.
    C:1 2 3 and 4
    6) yes 13 yrs

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.
