Another uBiome Analysis

I am making good progress on an automated analysis site (list of symptoms is evolving — check them out and catch any omissions), and waiting for some technical data. I hope to have it working (at least using DataPunk.Net data, my deep dive data has to be manually re-entered).
A reader was desperate for an analysis, so I am doing another one manually. This turned our to be interesting because it bought in 68 new taxonomy units to the existing 509 from other uBiome samples; I also had to do another deep dive.

After posting, reader responded: “followed the Jaden protocol Now I see why it did not work” — Explanation: many of the overgrowth bacteria are resistant to tetracycline antibiotics (the workhorse for both Jadin and many Lyme protocols)

Standard Items:

  • Lactobacillus: 0.05x
  • Bifidobacterium: 2.01x – identified by species
  • Akkermansia:  0x
  • Diversity:  80%ile
  • Firmicutes to Bacteroidetes:  2.4:1 (Normal 2.1:1)

Uncommon Bacteria

Bottom Line Suggestions For New Ones

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.

I have done a x # to indicate items that results from multiple bacteria genus.
