Get real about Crohn's Disease... NEW

No more smoke and mirrors about Crohn's Disease:, do a websearch and find Dr. Michael Greger's 50-page paper, "Paratuberculosis and Crohn's Disease: Got Milk?" Updated January the sad, pathetic truth about medical science and public health poliytics in the 21st Century...then e-mail me at or join and sign my Global Crohn's Petition at "Cure Crohn's Disease: No more worthless drugs"

My daughter Cathy, 44 died from Crohn's this February, 2012 after 24 years of worthless meds...immuno-suppressive, "auto-immune" nonsense...see what Dr. Greger says about MAP, Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis, and become your own advocate...ask your docs why they're still in the 1940's with their thinking abut Crohn's?? Perhaps "Chronic Illness is Good For Their Business?"
How many more will die rom Crohn's tyhis year? And next?

There is no genetic testing for Crohn's disease. To date, they have identified over 70 susceptibility (gene) loci and it is estimated there might be over 300 in total.

Some Crohn's patients are positive for ANCA, pANCA, ASCA, but not all. health/ provider/ medical/ procedural/ coverage_positions/ medical/ mm_0121_coveragepositioncriteria_serological_testing_for_ibd.pdf

Preventative measures include reducing exposure to toxins, which include artificial food additives, e.g. aromas, nitrites, monosodiumglutamate. They should follow a very healthy lifestyle and not drink colas and sodas or eat pure sugar sources (sweets, sugar, maple syrup, honey, etc.). No fast food. Home cooked, wholesome food, where you know what is in the meal is best. A mediterranean diet and an anti-inflammatory diet would be best

Certain foods may not be tolerated - this is very individual. Lactose and/or other sugar intolerances, coeliac disease are frequently associated with Crohn's, in addition to other autoimmune diseases.

Smoking has been shown to trigger Crohn's and this includes passive smoking.

Viruses and bacteria may trigger the disease

Connect with Dr. W. Chamberlin in Texas and ask him (do a websearch for him)...follow him on the IBD videos on, he's a real gastroenterologist and knows what he's doing with Crohn's disease...ask him about the anti-MAP program he's written about in scientific papers, and do a websearch for those papers on the Internet, they're all there...ask him about Professor John Hermon-Taylor and his anti-MAP work in England also...My daughter Cathy, 44 died February 24, 2012 after 24 years of useless crohn's meds--you don't have to...join the "WAR on Crohn's" e-mail me, I'll send you free the "War on Crohn's" newspaper articles I've written for the past 3 years--free by pdf...Do your homework, read, research, there are answers, but you must work at it!
