Just wanted to update you on the excellent results I am having using you site. My main condition was microcolitis, and I had just a little help with prescription drugs from gastroenterologist, with unpleasant side effects.
Based on the suggestions from your site, started using b longum and b plantarum from custom probitocs, and acidophilus from Solgar, and my symptoms were resolved within a week.
I’m still amazed by this, after almost two years of great discomfort.
It’s been two months now, and I am still symptom free. Again, thank you, so grateful for the work you do!
One question, for the avoid items, they are listed from low to high values, so if
clostridium butyricum is avoid -1.127
vsl #3 probiotic is avoid -4.442
it would be more important to avoid the vsl #3 correct?”
Thank you for sharing.
On the analysis site http://microbiomeprescription.azurewebsites.net/ the numbers in the confidence column reflect the number of studies reporting the change. It is the confidence of the recommendation. Some items have positive effects reported in some studies and negative in others. The cause may be because one study looked at the impact with people with disease X and the other with people with disease Y.
As always — these are suggestions based on pubmed studies and are strictly theoretical. These have not been validated in any clinical trial. There is no need to do all of the suggestions, it is more a “Guide book”. If you buy a guide book on London, you do not visit every place listed; you visit the places that interest you, at a reasonable cost, in the time you have.
