Old Mike Posted this in the UC section but I thought I should post it over here as well.

Something new to keep an eye out for treatment wise in the future

And this about MAP:

Yer right, Mark. I'm glad you did. I read it yesterday but didn't make a comment. I see 300 of our members have read your post already today. I hope at least most have gone to the link and read the info.
Since I am one w/no family history of autoimmune problems I'd really like to be able to "donate" my "DNA" or whatever to see if I am lacking in that enzyme or not.
Crohn's symptoms began mid-1975; Dx'd at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, early 1976; resection of 18" mid-ileum early 1978; 20 year total remission; symptomatic remission 1998 to current.

My computer says I need to upgrade my brain to be compatible with its new software.

Re; the first article....I wish they'd get on with it already...I still think they have to treat the immune system in order for us to have proper gut bacteria/balanced working properly again.

Second seems they go back and forth with the MAP "connection", at least they have for many years now and they still don't find anything conclusive enough to give us hope that it's the key (and fixable) to our disease, it's very discouraging.
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

I agree with PB4 a LOT!

Impatience and desperation for relief is getting to me these days.
Diagnosed Crohns-Colitis about 8 years ago - Past Meds: Antibiotics, Prednisone, Methotrexate, Remicade - Current Meds: No meds at the moment -Trying Amino Acid Balancing Therapy Actually achieved full clinical remission for about 2 years using Remicade, Diet (SCD) and Exercise
