Thanks for joining me!
This is a companion site to the analysis site at:
The intent of this site to assist people with health issues that are, or could be, microbiome connected. There are MANY conditions known to have the severity being a function of the microbiome dysfunction, including Autism, Alzheimer’s, Anxiety and Depression. See this list of studies from the US National Library of Medicine. Individual symptoms like brain fog, anxiety and depression have strong statistical association to the microbiome. A few of them are listed here.
The base rule of the site is to avoid speculation, keep to facts from published studies and to facts from statistical analysis(with the source data available for those wish to replicate the results). Internet hearsay is avoid like the plague it is.
Open data and Open source are our mottos!
You wish to get a 16s Microbiome Test so you have detail data. Speculating on what your problems are, is foolish. Show me the lab results should be your mantra.

Recommended Site For Testing
If you have ME/CFS or other financially disastrous condition, there is always a nasty cost factor for testing. My usual recommendation is for the cheapest, high quality provider that provides information for upload to my analysis site, Biomesight.com is the easiest to use and appears most preferred by my users. They ship worldwide. Some sites provide a mountain more of information — but the benefit from that extra information is almost nothing (and it adds $$$$ and complexity).
- uBiome.com is shutting down. This had been my personal usual site because using a variety of techniques, the cost was $25/sample. Don’t order from there.
- BiomeSight.com (EU based) is an excellent buy using our discount code [MICRO]. They have also automated data transfer to our analysis site.
- Thryve is what I am starting to use. Their reports may be processed here for independent suggestions. I would also recommend
