Never looked at monensin it is usually used to kill protozoa infection.
Looked at gallium years ago. But here is a patent on its use for IBD.
At this point, if it really did work,it is so cheap I don't think it will ever hit mainstream.
Too much money being made on biologics.
For my next experiment going to try and drive down this cytokine of which I never heard of before.
Oncostatin M seems like it might be really important.
In this issue, West et al.6 first identified OSM as the most transcript
ionally upregulated cytokine in inflamed intestinal mucosa from patients with CD and as among the most upregulated in patients with UC, when compared to mucosa from healthy individual.
See my current thread on OSM for more info.
What also drives me nuts is that many of the natural treatments are supposed to be antiinflammatory.
But if you run a search on say fish oil immune stimulation, guess what it stimulates, as does garlic,melatonin
and I guess many others. I suppose these compounds can have dual function depending on what is going on.
