Crohn’s Disease Often Triggered by Antibiotic Use

Finally, conventional medicine is realizing that inflammatory bowel problems such as Crohn’s disease can be triggered by the use of prescribed antibiotics.  Dr. Ryan Ungaro from the Icahn School of Medicine in Mt. Sinai, New York identified metronidazole and quinolone antibiotics as the most common culprits, creating a condition called dysbiosis.  This in turn can trigger an autoimmune response, which can make the patient very sick.  Recommended prevention (by me) includes using herbal preparations instead of antibiotics and including probiotics at the same time.  Further, we use LDI (low-dose immunotherapy) to desensitize patients who have already developed Crohn’s disease.
