MAP Bacterium- Possible Cause of Crohn's. The Risk is High For Americas

I know... The gross and stomach turning articles I've been posting the past day are nasty! I am not searching for these; trust me.  I just happened to come across these and felt the need to let others know and become more aware about these issues that may be having negative effects on our health. 

This article discusses MAP, the resistant bacteria found in dairy products that is said to be a possible cause for inflammation.  Be sure to read the paragraph in bold.  It's rather disturbing, especially if you just had some ice cream or a glass of milk.  However, it's better to be in the know than to be clueless.   

I don't agree with the the next paragraph at all.  No.. we should not "manage symptoms".  There are ways of getting to the root problem and ridding our body of what's causing the negative reaction.  In regards to MAP, there is a way to test to see if this bacteria resides in your body.  There is also a medication that is able to get rid of the bacteria that was developed by an Australian company and is available here in the US. The medication is a combination of 3 antibiotics and it's said to be effective.  Find my other blog that discusses MAP for more information about the bacteria and the treatment available. 

Controlling inflammation helpful in warding off 

Crohn’s Disease

Published March 22nd, 2012

More than half a million uncomfortable American men, women and youngsters have incurable Crohn’s Disease. That’s the highest rate ever recorded.
Crohn’s is commonly diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 30, although people of all ages can suffer. The disorder causes GI inflammation between point A and B, but mostly the small intestine, where life-sustaining nutrients must get absorbed. Crohn’s limits absorption of nutrients, which may lead to anemia; ergo growing children may suffer delayed development for lack of nutrients. As swelling spreads, it causes pain, bleeding, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, weight loss, arthritis, skin problems and fever.
Scientists consider a protein produced by the immune system is a possible cause for inflammation. Our Holy Temple brims with cells and proteins defending us from infection. The immune system reacts abnormally and mistakes alien bacteria for invaders then attacks them. White blood cells and pus accumulate in the lining of the intestines, producing chronic inflammation and, bingo, ulcerations and bowel injury.
Evidence incriminates a bacterium, Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis (MAP) in dairy products, transmitted via cow’s milk, as a cause of Crohn’s since MAP’s are detected in a large fraction of Crohn’s patients. The New York Times reports there’s growing clinical evidence cow pus/white blood cells cause Crohn’s in people who drink milk from infected cows. Why? Aggressive repeated milking causes sores on the exhausted, brown-eyed milker’s teats. Since transmission of this bacteria is aided by its presence in pus cells, American milk drinkers are at high risk since the U.S. has the highest permitted limit of milk pus cell concentration on earth —almost twice the international standard. By federal law, Grade A milk is allowed to have over a drop of pus per glass of milk. According to the USDA, 20 to 40 percent of U.S. dairy farms have sick cows. That milk is pooled with milk from healthy cows, resulting in a whole bunch of sick people. Not a pretty Oreo-dipped picture.
Manage symptoms with medication, proper diet and daily exercise. Wholesome nutrition is ginormous. People experiencing malnourishment require IV nutrition. Check with your physician and have a Spectracell test preformed.
Bypass foods that aggravate symptoms of Crohn’s disease and eat five or six small, well-balanced whole food meals a day. Sugar is toxic to the digestive lining and pretty much intolerable by those with irritated bowels. Sugar strips your innards of pro-biotic bacteria, and then replaces it with a charming overgrowth of bad bacteria. Sugar leads to a pH imbalance making it harder for the temple to heal.
Add omega-3 fatty acids from fish, flax and chia oil and walnuts to your diet. Avoid caffeine to prevent dehydration from diarrhea. Shun triggers like dairy products, spicy foods, fried foods, raw vegetables and fruit, and seek advice from a medical professional. You deserve to feel good with every breath you take.
