Gut Bacteria. Variety or Count?

Whenever I buy gut bacteria, I always try to go for the ones with the most variety or that are different to the last batch I bought. Is this choice a good one? or should I go for the higher count with less variety? Basically, trying to increase the range of bacteria in my gut as well as the count.

The other possibly invalid belief I have, is that these bacteria should actually, once established, ...

First Dr appointment with GP

Interesting appointment and went much as I expected.

Told the Dr all my symptom, most of which he said can be caused by many different things. He told me he doesn't thing I have MS because my symptoms are not caused by MS. He was focusing on numbness and poor balance. He tested numbness by running his finger across me and asking if I could feel it and was it the same on both sides ...

I contacted MS One to One and they said they are aware of some "misdirected mailings" but were unwilling to tell us how they were made aware that we were potential customers. Further, they were unwilling to provide a ...

Not Sure About Potential Symptoms

Hello All,

I'm posting here because lately I've been getting worried that I may have symptoms related to MS, but I am honestly not sure and figured I would get your guys' opinion on a few things. I have been back and forth to the doctor a number of times over the past few years for some of the symptoms, but the potential for MS has never really been seriously explored by any of them. ...
