Supplements while awaiting bloodwork?


I'm brand new. Have had MRI suspect for MS but awaiting bloodwork to rule out other causes.

Thanks in advance.

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.
