The Reason for My Crusade

I’ll preface this maiden entry with the foremost reason for my blog – to educate about one cause of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, a pathogen classified as Mycobacterium Avium subspecies Paratuberculosis – (MAP) (see link below). There is a plethora of info regarding MAP and how its transmission can cause Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease, of which I am currently researching and digesting. I plan to write more on this adaptive bacteria and how it manifests into Colitis and/or Crohn’s Disease plus other diseases. I hope that you find this fact as exciting as I do – an actual, repeatedly documented, scientifically proven cause!

I have Crohn’s Colitis and I have MAP. Let me reiterate, MAP is one cause of UC/CD. There is no way to tell if MAP caused my Crohn’s Colitis, but I believe it did.

Like most of you suffering from these conditions, I was told that there were no known causes for Crohn’s Colitis other than the generic textbook answers of overactive immune system or dysbiosis (gut flora imbalance). There are.

Locating the most qualified, open-minded specialist is key to beginning your own journey towards wellness. As I begin to write my journey with Colitis and Crohn’s, I am filled with a mixture of hopeful trepidation, knowing how encompassing a blog about a personal struggle can be, if I’m honest with you, and myself. Here goes!
