Microbiome Modelled Suggestions for Long Covid

This list (with live time updates as data is added) on Microbiome Prescription web site. All suggestions from this page should be reviewed by your medical professionals. These are based on modelling and not clinical studies. These are based on family and lower taxonomy ranks (genus,species,strains) reported in studies on US National Library of Medicine.

In general, people report improvements from at least half of the items on the top of the list for other conditions. Many items listed have been reports in clinical studies to help a significant percentage of patients.

Items with a low bad impact and high good impact are likely the best to start with (i.e. Sumac(Rhus coriaria) , laminaria hyperborea( tangle/cuvie – seaweed)  thyme  (oil), coriander oil  , peppermint  oil). Many of these suggestions are similar to those for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (Long COVID sibling). Suggestions for ME/CFS agreed with clinical studies results.
