Oh yes the * in the title.. .. I need to remember!


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

sure.......if Dr D didn t explain which is for which......then we can all use our criteria on all we have learned about gut ecosystem differences and try and understand this through BT GT lenses, no?

Long overdue blog on the latest news about 'enterotypes,' which some scientists are comparing to blood types. They're probably more correct than they know.


the study would need to be more broken down into blood groups......to know....
these guys have part of the big picture, but not all

TJ,

I've been searching and reading for about an hour and I can't find anywhere that the connection is made conclusively...  

I even approached the problem starting with the beneficial bacteria is Dr. D.'s Polyflora, but can't find anywhere that they are connected to the Enterotypes...
EDITED to add: I should have stated that I can't find which Enterotype the beneficial bacteria are...  

I probably just haven't looked deep enough or in the right places...

This is just one study among many that show that we are all not the same inside. ( I know a few studies have shown that B's have more diverse gut flora)

We know from Dr. D that our gut flora plays a large part in our health and that each blood type has a different environment in the gut.. from levels of gastric acid to alkaline phosphatase.

This is just another step along the way. The study is not done by Dr. D so he has no control over  what was done.

But we can conclude that individual diets and lifestyles are important and the scientific community will have to begin to recognize it. It is due to information like this that will move the idea forward.

No where does it state A's are this type and B's are this type.  But like Lola said you have to take what you know and apply it to the information presented.

Pretty much what she said. Probably a correlation, but nothing distinct, at least as far as the enterotype study went. The point of the blog was that they shoudl be aware that there are prior studies looking at blood groups and their effect on the microbiome. I may well do something further when the UBCOE gets up and running.

If the people who do the studies have any brains they will read any comments that circulate around the internet, sometimes creativity in science is stolen from people just like us.

So the answer is, "There isn't an answer yet".   It would have made more sense to me if you had just said, "We don't know" from the start.

asking them to repopulate their ecosystems by popping polyflora for their types might be a great start!!!

they might get an ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh moment

The ABO/Secretor - enterotype correlation does not gain significance unless the person is questioning (or better yet, has abandoned) the unimorphic medical view of human beings.  A case of the persistent issue of foundational assumptions that will require a several breakthrough moments to beat the habitual resistance.  We need a medical researcher to see, what in their estimation is impossible, in order to usher them into the polymorphic view of things.

I wish there were some known poison or deadly pathology to which a specific individual was epi-genetically immune.  I still favor the concept of nineteenth centry style laboratory lecture caught on video.

Wouldn't it be better to be participating rather than anticipating?

What I find significant is that the polymorphisms we have as "hosts" as Dr.D mentions, are or may be influenced by our gut population.  For me, that is super important.  As the polymorphisms I have may decrease as my gut flora increases, as long as they are the right flora I suppose.  

But I think the concern, and what TJ is asking, is that how do we know the flora we are trying to populate our guts with, with probiotics and such, are the right ones.  And I'm sure Dr.D has a handle on this, as he has the formulations for each GTD.  But since we are all individuals, it is curious as to know which ones are best for us.  Now, I think all we can do is TRY to populate our gut, and go from there.  It would probably be impossible for some scientist sitting at a desk to know, which combination is going to be best for us.  But, maybe it is possible down the road.  

But in my uneducated mind, I'm thinking were constantly changing and such, so, it doesn't seem like there would be any one static answer.  For example, I know there are times in my life where my gut was a little more robust than other times.  My Grandma once told me she heard that our system changes every 7 years.  And I don't know where she got that, or what, but I feel like there could be some wisdom in that.  I would love to know if there is a scientific theory that matches it out there.  I guess I should google it.

But beyond all that, the Work of Westin Price, among others I would suppose, has shown that many societies through the ages have used cultured foods to help maintain good health. Kefir is as old as the hills from Turkey or something like that, Sourdough has been in europe for as long as they've remembered, I think, yoghurt and buttermilk are nothing new under the sun, etc, etc.  Sauerkraut.  Whatever.  And despite the differences Dr.D and the proponents of Westin Price may have on certain issues like *cough*soy*cough*, I think that what I can tell, it is sound wisdom to use some of these culturing practices for our guts.  

No?

From That Anxiety May Be In Your Gut, Not In Your Head:

Quoted Text
To confirm that bacteria can influence behaviour, the researchers colonized germ-free mice with bacteria taken from mice with a different behavioural pattern. They found that when germ-free mice with a genetic background associated with passive behaviour were colonized with bacteria from mice with higher exploratory behaviour, they became more active and daring. Similarly, normally active mice became more passive after receiving bacteria from mice whose genetic background is associated with passive behaviour.

There was a time in my life when I was very daring, bold, confident, traveling all the time, ready to eat bicycle chains, etc etc.  Since I've had digestion problems.  I struggle with fear and anxiety.  I can tell you from personal experience that gut problems influence your anxiety levels and confidence and what not.  There may be some emotional, underlying issues that I need to deal with, but the physical definitely affects the mental.  I was taking seretonin support heavily for over a year and I know without a doubt it helped with my anxiety.  I'm off it now, so I'm kind of up and down battling it.  But I don't really feel like I need it.  But getting tryptophan seems to help.  Plantains and turkey.  Problem is, plantains are very sweet.  And turkey can be kind of fatty.  But, whatever.  I totally agree with your point.
