    For the third item from the Metabolite Explorer, we return to a LOW item, Secondary metabolite degradation: Dioxin degradation. Here we see Low 8/14 High 1 /14 (No Onset information -- may be a healthy) Normal 5/14 I speculated that the ability to degrade dioxin will diminished and found that anyone who specified an onset, was a value of 1 or less and found this chart (that really needs...

    The highest average value at present on the symptom-metabolites explorer ( is from “Secondary metabolite biosynthesis: Stilbenoid, diarylheptanoid and gingerol biosynthesis” with an average of 2.1 with 8/14 HIGH 4/14 low 2/14 Normal. This is biosynthesis — the body producing this group of compounds, not metabolism (using and...

    The data from 14 people to date reporting in the microbiome metabolism explorer has a high percentage with a very low metabolism for D-Arginine and D-ornithine (10/14). There are a few others that are high (4/10). None normal. This variation is expected because everyone’s shift is different. At face value, this means that both arginine and ornithine that is taken into the body is not...

    A reader asked: “Do you still think thick blood is a common issue and do you still recommend getting the multiple labs for thick blood? Is there a viscosity test you recommend for seeing that the thickness is at any given time?” Given that I have been focusing on the microbiome (mainly because it is actionable in many ways — diet, probiotics, antibiotics; and easily measurable =>...

    One of the original intents of the mechanized analysis site at: was to try to identify which bacteria shifts are related to which symptoms. Over the last week I have been coding and testing a symptom explorer and it is ready for beta release. It is found at: Overview When you open the page, you...

    A reader wrote: "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. thoughts?" When you want to change something, my old blog posts are not...

    I received this in the mail, [IMG] Or $99/sample versus $89 for the basic kit (one time) or $72 on subscription. What is the difference? More comprehensive access to your entire microbiome, including viruses and fungi Functional metagenomics information, such as insights into what key metabolites and vitamins your bacteria are synthesizing for...

    Some conditions are associated with shift of bacteria. This does not mean that if you have most of the shift, you will have the condition. DNA is a major factor in developing most conditions. In short: Bad Microbiome + Bad DNA ==> Health Problems. The full list (without using your uBiome) is at this page. Reports currently Available Autoimmune Disease Chronic Fatigue Syndrome High Blood...

    Symptoms are only collected for uBiome samples. The reason is simple, we need lots of data on bacteria to go with lots of symptoms to isolate patterns. Getting to the Symptoms List There are three ways of getting to the menu shown below From your original upload, see this post How to upload your uBiome for analysis [Updated] Under the Ubiome menu at

    A reader asked about their relationship and after doing a quick check on PubMed, there seems to be sufficient studies to attempt a summary. “Gut microbes are capable of producing most neurotransmitters found in the human brain. Evidence is accumulating to support the view that gut microbes influence central neurochemistry and behavior.” [2017] “The bacterial commensals in our gut can signal...

    Ubiome has a clinical test called Smart Gut. I covered it prior with instructions on moving the data to the uBiome Explorer in uBiome’s Smart Gut (with transfer to Explorer) and uBiome’s Clinical Report “Smart Gut” I got an email asking for a direct entry page. In time I plan to add low bacteria to the uBiome explorer; with this report, I can do low bacteria for Smart Gut data ahead of that...
