Rickettsia (Lyme/Q-fever) Detection by Microbiome?

Today I had a messenger session with someone who noted that Diplorickettsia was in his results. Rickettsia infection treatment plan is the historic basis of Ceclie Jadin’s protocol that she learnt from the Pasteur Institute for Tropical Medicine which has been successful for some ME/CFS patients.

What is Diplorickettsia genus?

” Doubled rickettsia, for the phenotypic resemblance of the isolated strain with rickettsiae shown by Gimenez staining A novel obligate intracellular gamma-proteobacterium associated with ixodid ticks, Diplorickettsia massiliensis” [Src]

”  The disease (Lyme neuroborreliosis) is caused by multiple genospecies of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato bacteria transmitted by ixodid (hard) ticks, ” [2019]

Checking uploads from Thryve, there were two individuals that had this evidence of a tick bite that may have transferred bacteria that has taken up residency. I have put these people in contact with other (with permission).

Legionella and Coxiella, both of which include notable pathogens. For example, Q fever is caused by Coxiella burnetii and Legionella pneumophila causes Legionnaires’ disease[2][3] and Pontiac fever.[4][5][6]


Looking at other Thryve uploads, I found one more person with Coxiella. For Legionella, I found 6 additional people — including myself!

For myself, it was present in nose samples (ubiome) in 2017 (highest count, almost 3%) and 2018 (not in relapse) and then appear in my first Thryve gut sample of 2019-11-10. This echos back to several past post of the nasal cavity and mouth being reserves for various bacteria that may help maintain various medical conditions. For ME/CFS, that has been detected: Chronic fatigue syndrome patients have alterations in their oral microbiome composition and function. [Sep 2018].


As cited above, this was the experience used by Jadin. I found some 20+ individuals, including myself with the same pattern, in nose prior and in my last gut sample from Thryve.

Borrelia (Lyme)

I found this reported in 3 peoples microbiome from XenoGene, a european provider.

This does not mean that you have a pathogenic version. It indicates that you have a cousin to a pathogenic version (whose disease role may not be known).

I have added both of these to Health reports.. as illustrated below

Whether a low number is significant is an unknown

If you discover any similar ‘interest’ bacteria, please let me know and I will update the risk items. Thanks!

For those wishing more information on 16s Microbiome analysis, see this listing of providers.
