Look below for microbiome modifiers added

“Hi Ken, what is your take on reducing, I can only find 3 things that may reduce Proteobacterium, L. taurine, and walnuts from your site and Chris’s pubmed study above which shows L. Reuteri works.

It seems to me this would be a great direction.

I’m thinking of adding L. Reuteri and L. Taurine.


When you want to change something, my old blog posts are not complete. The best source of information is the http://microbiomeprescription.com/ site.

Go to http://microbiomeprescription.azurewebsites.net/Library/Tree and scroll down until you find Proteobacterium. You will notice there are layers of children below it.


Clicking it will take you the current information in the database as show below.


This weekend, I added an enhancement. You see the 0 1 2 3 4 links above. These will take the known information about this bacteria item AND 0-4 children layers and roll up all of the information into one set of recommendations.

  • If it reduces the population of one group of a population, it likely reduces the entire population.

For example, with 4 the number of items are greatly increased.


This gives you bigger lists (but also more chance of an item appearing on both lists).

Bottom Line

The new site, with the AI and database behind it, produces a much richer list of action items.  I am planning to include this in the AI engine for recommendations at some time in the future — but for the moment, you can manually look at a concern and it’s children.
