No actual confirmed idea myself but.......

 

I do get this excellent health newsletter emailed to me on a regular basis, and this was in it this weeks edition:

It most certainly can! I think there is evidence to support that.

There has been a lot of discussion regarding MAP possibly causing Crohn's on the Crohn's forum. You may want to do a search for MAP in the blue box on the top of the page.

Interesting article, but i'm wondering where the writer gets some of their info, such as this statement:
"It has also been my experience that there is nearly ALWAYS some type of unresolved emotional trauma that occurred before the age of six and is buried deep in the subconscious.  This can be something devastating like sexual abuse, but far more commonly it is related to some parental interaction that was relatively minor, but to the child, it was absolutely devastating.  Until this is cleared up it is VERY difficult to obtain improvement."

I've never read any research to suggest this. At points, it sounds like more of an opinion piece than an article based in facts. Still an interesting read and thanks for posting.

My guess is it would be more correct to say it's one of the possible causes of Crohn's.

I suppose I should have posted this on the other site.

I have never heard of this milk theory before and thought there may be a connection with UC too.

MoonShadow - Have you seen this post on the Crohn's board? Thought you might be interested. The MAP theory could have something to do with UC, too.

Actually that's an old theory. Way back in the bad old days, everyone "knew" that Crohn's and UC were both "neurotic" diseases - that they were caused by emotional instability and a "neurotic" (i.e. non-coping) personality. Even when I was in college, they said that these things were strong contributers to the diseases.
 
But that was back when they also "knew" that childhood autism was caused by an emotionally cold mother.

hmm...interesting, Judy. That must have been hard to deal with such stigmas for those diagnosed back then.

Yes, I'm sure it didn't help their conditions at all. Already sick, then stressed with everyone thinking they were head cases must have been horrible.
