Mix of Gut Microbes “May” Play Role in Crohn’s Disease???

There was a recent article published in Cell, Host and Microbe where researchers took samples of intestinal flora in various parts of the digestive tract in many people with Crohn’s Disease and discovered that there are more “bad” bacteria and less “beneficial” bacteria in the intestinal tracts of those people.  They also stated that the use of antibiotics tends to create this problem and make it worse.

That is EXACTLY what the problem is with a lot of these autoimmune diseases.  Intestinal dysbiosis caused by overuse of antibiotics and exacerbated by poor Western diets.  Leads to inflammation, leaky gut, and possible autoimmune diseases.  There is no “may” to it.  It DOES play a role in Crohn’s disease and many others.

This is also why autoimmune diseases can be reversed!  Heal the gut – heal the disease.  Which is what I did over three years ago.

I will post a link to the NPR article that discussed this research study, and I will also post the medical research paper on my media page so you can read it if you would like.

In some human diseases, the wrong mix of bacteria seems to be the trouble.

  1. Research is a wonderful thing! There is so much that can be learned about our diseases and disorders. I am glad that you ditched Crohn’s and I hope you’re feeling much better.

    My wife of nearly 22 years died from an auto-immune condition called Multiple Sclerosis after suffering from it for almost a quarter of a century.

    There is still no cure for the disease, and not really much in the way of effective treatment but the research through the MS Society continues, and it is important that a cure AND effective treatments for the symptoms are found soon.

    I am walking through the entire west coast of Scotland to raise funds for the MS Society in the UK. Please take the time to share my story and encourage others to participate.
