There is a lot of uncertainty in modifying an ill microbiome. This starts with selecting the bacteria you want to change, see this post Steeing the species that may need correction to whether something actually modifies a bacteria without causing undesirable side-effects. You cannot be blinkered...

This week I applied an old technique to microbiome analysis which I remember using to solve some messy problems that I was dealing with professionally back in 1982. The solution was to return to the question or assumption without going down the path mostly travelled. Almost all of the microbiome...

In general, I prefer single species or single strain probiotics that has studies on PubMed. On occasion, a probiotic mixture makes it to my “second line probiotics to try”. There is a new pair on the market (one for men, one for women) that passes the bar. What is my bar? All of the strains...

I usually avoid getting too involved with readers — for a simple reason: this blog and the microbiome analysis site is already a time consuming evening and weekend gig (full time IT day job). I am not a physician or medically trained, so “patient history” is an inappropriate term to use. This...

One of my favorite sources for information on the microbiome is run by Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo. For many years he has advocated eating for your blood type. In this week’s issue of New Scientist. an article “Your gut bacteria may match your blood group – but we don’t know why“ The difference between...
A reader forwarded me a link to: “Ozone therapy is an effective therapy in chronic fatigue syndrome:result of an Italian study in 65 patient” My initial take was that I was not surprised — why? Ozone kills some bacteria… but we need to dig deeper. Note: both Ozone and Hydrogen peroxide have one...
