Crohn's & Ulcerative Colitis

I had a chance to talk with Jay at who is an interesting and educated man.  Jay's site includes information on both Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis.    We discussed the use of the Lactoferrin/Xylitol protocol that I have developed here .    Biofilm research is growing daily and reveals some fascinating discoveries concerning pathogenic organisms.   Biofilms are shielded communities of organisms that makes either the natural immune responses or antibiotics difficult to eradicate.

We discussed the issues of pathogenic organisms in the involvement of Crohn's which could be bacterial dysbiosis or protozoa in nature.  We also discussed the need for accurate pathogen identification.  Testing with PCR analysis from Metametrix (GI Effects) was talked about as a means of accurate stool testing versus traditional stool testing.

Jay has a diverse amount of information on his website from the SCD diet to colostrum to dietary strategies to a whole host of other treatments.  If you are suffering with Crohn's or Ulcerative Colitis, I would highly recommend his site.
