In my most recent posts, I wrote about how there is a crohn’s vaccine up for human trials and an Anti-MAP treatment using 3 different antibiotics in one. I tried to contact a few of the doctors who support the Anti-MAP treatment and they were not able to prescribe medication out of state due to obvious reasons. My local doctor would not prescribe this either as it is too new and not many know about it.
The idea is that there is a specific bacteria (MAP for short) that these antibiotics kill off and those that are able to use this treatment are doing very well. This bacteria is believed to be present in 93%+ of Crohn’s patients and the possible cause of crohn’s itself!
I got to thinking, what if there are natural antibiotics like Oregano that kills this specific bacteria just like the hard to get antibiotics? I then found quite a few studies that showed how Oregano Oil does very well at destroying MAP bacteria.
Next, Remember when I started this blog and I was taking my oregano oil along with juicing? I went into remission without any prescription drugs. The Oregano oil taken daily killed off the MAP bacteria which stopped its influence on the immune system. The juicing further flushed and killed this bacteria while healing and I went into full remission for 1.5 years using zero medication. It makes sense why this happened based on what I was doing naturally.
Now I did have a flare a year later that was stress induced. I was not taking the oregano and I was still juicing. When you do the antibiotic treatment and then stop it, the symptoms slowly return because not all of the MAP is killed. This is where the vaccine comes in to stop the MAP from its return after it is destroyed.
The link above is a great quality product I found on amazon. This is the product that I will be taking 1-2x a day. It has the correct form of Oregano and a great potency. It has very good reviews and gives you a 90 day supply for only $15.
Until they test and make this treatment more available, I will give this a shot once again, but make it more long term.
