Possibility of a new section in the private forum for microbiome discussions?

Good morning
I would like to discuss the incredibly positive response to having access to a naturopathic healer. My journey with this healer has resulted in more progress in five months than five years with a dozen MDs. I feel this information is of vital importance.  
My particular disease is caused by a massive fungal overgrowth which may have its root in mold.
Thank you for you consideration to this topic.

The key here, Brian, is the number of threads required for a forum to get Googlelove. I think the magic number is 50, but some of the staff would know better than I.

If you can get a rough list of threads that deal with the topic of the microbiome totalling at least 50, I bet it would be easy to do.

This is a massive topic, and I know of no few members of this site that have microbiome-related health posts here. Just start posting, and it will happen eventually.

This is such a great topic.

Water Kefir
Ginger Beer

Milk Probiotic
Milk Kefir
Live Cheese

Vegetable Probiotic

Bean/Grains Probiotic
Amazake/Rice Milk
Soy Sauce

Less process grains/sugar
More tuber & vegetables
More Water

Eating schedule
Sleep Schedule
Does being active make a difference?
Hormone Interactions

Then there is more interesting stuff like eating poop in a pill to repopulate.

I would like to hear about your experience and research.

The current stance is we are happy to generate more forums provided there is enough content (existing threads) to populate these forums.

If we make empty forums, then google heaps a bunch of hate on our site and it reduces the number of brains we can infect with permaculture.

But if there are already enough threads already made on these topics, and someone were to gather up a list of say, maybe fifty of these threads, then I bet a staff member would be happy to volunteer to make the new forum for you.

If you want a new forum, but there aren't yet enough threads about that topic, then the best way to get what you want is to make more threads.  The Meaningless Drivel forum is a holding place for threads that don't yet have their own forum.

I think in the title Brian was asking about starting one of the 'private' forums? the lymes one maybe?
