Hello there friends!

Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

Can Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes be altered in an individual? Can they be restored to beneficial levels with proper protocol?

I have Firmicutes on the higher end (80) and Bacteroidetes on the lower level (20,) which is indicative of over-absorption of caloric extraction from food (can cause obesity/weight problems.) I am not obese, yet should be a bit thinner considering my lifestyle.

Please shed as much light on this for me as possible.

Thanks a bunch!

Melissa

The FUT2 (Secretor) gene is responsible for the presence of ABO histo-blood group antigens on the gastrointestinal mucosa and in bodily secretions. Individuals lacking a functional copy of FUT2 are known as "nonsecretors" and display an array of differences in susceptibility to infection and disease, including Crohn disease.

It would take someone with more medical knowledge than I to answer this properly.  When I did a general search for Firmicutes and Bacteroidetes, the results seemed to be studies comparing these two flora in different groups with no regard to blood type.

Dr. D. has stated that many gut flora are blood type sensitive, so I can only assume that eating per type and possibly taking blood type probiotics will return an individual's gut flora to optimum.

Thanks Lola,

I am a secretor, though...according to the saliva test I sent in.

Do results like this link to nonsecretor status?

If you did the secretor test, that's a trump card.

Understand that when you have a healthy gut, each of the blood types will have dominant good bacteria in their colon that lives within us in a symbiotic relationship.  When you don't have healthy gut flora, then other bad bacteria, will flourish.

To get yourself back in balance, I'd recommend several months of Dr. D's Intrinsa and Gastro-D.  Intrinsa is a precursor food for your good bacteria.  To be honest, I don't understand fully how Gastro-D works, but I know it's recommended over and over by the senior members here, so I take it to heal my gut.


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

Thanks everyone!

I just want to know if this can be reversed...I assume so...but want someone to tell me so.
