Why New Crohn’s Disease Vaccine is a Mistake

A Crohn’s disease vaccination is being developed by a researcher in Great Britain. The vaccine targets MAP, a bacteria found in 80% of Crohn’s sufferers. The vaccine aims to help stimulate the body to eliminate MAP, and thus cure those suffering with Crohn’s disease. [1]

While the intent of the researcher may be honorable, it is highly debatable whether another vaccination is the answer for this serious disease.

Vaccinations have in fact been blamed for causing autoimmune disorders including Crohn’s disease. It makes little sense to use a vaccine to target a disease caused by vaccines. Crohn’s disease is a progressive, life-threatening illness correlated with gut dysbiosis and inflammation of the intestines. [2]

Functional medicine approaches, which aim to heal the gut, offer hope for those suffering with Crohn’s disease. Conventional medicine treatments include anti-inflammatory drugs that attempt to put the disease into remission. [3, 4]

New Crohn’s Disease Vaccine

Professor John Hermon-Taylor of St. George’s Hospital, London, has developed a vaccination which targets MAP (Mycobaterium avium patratuberculosis) found in animals and passed into the food chain. Professor Hermon-Taylor believes that the pathogen MAP is the cause of 80% of the cases of Crohn’s disease, based on the fact that most individuals with Crohn’s tested positively for MAP.

The Crohn’s vaccine has been tested on animals and plans exist to start human trials. The vaccine would target current sufferers of Crohn’s disease, by stimulating their bodies to rid themselves of MAP. More than 100,000 people suffer with Crohn’s disease in the UK.

Hav Vaccines, LTD, began in 2009, is developing the vaccine which will be available for current Crohn’s sufferers along with those considered to be at high risk for developing Crohn’s disease. The phase 2 trials are predicted to be completed by January 8, 2018.
[5, 6, 7]

Crohn’s Disease Defined and its Prevalence

Crohn’s disease involves chronic inflammation of the intestinal tract, causing a variety of symptoms including rectal bleeding, weight loss, fever, abdominal pain, cramping, fatigue and reduced appetite. It can also cause anemia and intestinal obstruction.

Complications of Crohn’s disease include blockage of the intestines, scar tissue formation, fissures, abscesses and fistulas, possibly requiring surgery to remove damaged portions of the digestive tract. [8]

It is estimated that 1 to 1.3 million individuals in the United States suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, which includes both Crohn’s disease and closely related ulcerative colitis. [9]

The causes of IBD are considered to be unknown and conventional treatments include anti-inflammatory drugs and surgery.

The Problem with a Crohn’s Disease Vaccination

A vaccination, which proposes to cure Crohn’s disease, by nature is poorly designed and doomed to failure. Vaccinations work by increasing an antibody aimed at a particular virus or bacteria. The Crohn’s vaccine is likewise being created to attack the MAP pathogen in Crohn’s patients.

The fatal flaw in all vaccines is the fact that increased antibodies do not equate to immunity. Assuming that MAP is the cause of Crohn’s disease (which is a large assumption with no proof), a vaccination targeting MAP will contain a variety of toxic ingredients which will have the end result of lowering the ability of the immune system and decreasing the body’s ability to fight MAP or anything else for that matter.

Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory response of the body. Vaccinations which inject foreign substances into individuals will only aggravate and worsen this inflammation.

Cellular immunity is more important than antibodies in fighting disease. Cellular immunity is worsened by vaccinations.

Neurologist Russell Blaylock has lectured and written extensively on this topic of cellular immunity and failed vaccines.

Proof that Vaccines Lead to Crohn’s Disease

Research studies have linked vaccinations, including Gardasil, with the development of autoimmune disorders. Vaccines are often the final assault to a weakened immune system which cause autoimmune disorders, including Crohn’s disease. [10]

True Root Causes of Crohn’s Disease

Functional medicine and other alternative approaches to medicine have linked gut dysbiosis, parasites, candida, metal toxicity, vaccinations and other assaults to the immune system as causes of Crohn’s disease. Because these damaging environmental factors include vaccinations, using a vaccine to treat Crohn’s disease makes little sense.

How to Stay Healthy, Avoid Crohn’s Disease and Cure It

Eating a nutrient-dense diet and avoiding toxins in the environment including vaccines, GMOs and fluoride can help to both avoid and treat Crohn’s disease. Engaging a functional medicine practitioner to develop an individualized treatment plan can be essential for healing from this devastating and life-threatening disease. Others have managed to find healing by following certain dietary protocols such as GAPS and the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.


Crohn’s disease is a serious disease of the gastrointestinal tract involving inflammation. There is currently no known cause or cure from a conventional medicine perspective, although treatments aim to reduce inflammation and can bring the disease into remission. Holistic approaches address gut dysbiosis, candida and parasites using nutritional supplements, medications and dietary changes.

A new vaccine is being developed in England to treat Crohn’s disease by targeting the bacterium MAP found in most Crohn’s patients. The problem with this idea is that MAP has not been shown conclusively to be the cause of Crohn’s disease and vaccinations are known to actually cause autoimmune disorders, including Crohn’s disease.

    Thanks for sending us this truthful information about this new vaccine coming out for Chrohn’s . People need to be aware of the vaccine agenda is not all that it appears to be. As they say follow the money! I do not tell people to not take vaccines but they need to do more research to find out the truth and make their own informed decisions. This article is Proof that Vaccines Lead to Crohn’s Disease.

  • Jim Cook

    The goal of vaccine manufacturers is not to prevent or cure disease, but to create and utilize disease to make money, control population, and make us all docile slaves until we are no longer of use to the power elite and can then be phased out. That’s why scientific evidence has no effect upon their agenda. Look at the Zika circus! Until we realize that medicine, food and weather are the weapons of choice in this genocidal war against the subhumans the elite holds the rest of us to be, we won’t see clearly what’s going on and won’t be able to take effective action.

  • Dan Quixoté

    I had Crohns/Colitis. Nasty wasting disease, no fun voiding blood over a dozen times a day amid crippling cramps and bouts of shock, while trying to earn a living to support a family. It was caused by devastation of my gut bacteria population from SAD (Standard American Diet), one too many rounds of antibiotics, and finally the soul-crushing passing of one of our children. The good bacteria were decimated, the bad took over, and there was little to none of the gut bacteria species that excrete the chemical markers that let your immune system know that your intestines aren’t a foreign body to be killed off. The docs, among the best in the country in the field, didn’t understand all of this, I had to research it myself. They had me on a series of expensive drugs with permanent cumulative side effects, undergo excruciating procedures, and were trying to convince me to have my bowels resected. Just in time God put Jordan Rubin’s book in my hands, and I understood what I needed to do. But instead of taking HSO’s like him, I repopulated my gut bacteria with the soil bacteria on the leaves of wild weed greens foraged daily. I also cleaned up my diet and hardcore dealt with all my emotional baggage. Also no more allopathic medicine for me, learned the effective and side effect free natural remedies like our forbears used. In months I was cured. I still practice this lifestyle, and it works.

    2016 studydocuments a significant increase in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in fluoridated communities.

    My notes: IBD and gastrointestinal inflammation. In the US, Canada, Australia and Wales, the fluoridation of municipal water preceded a marked increase in incidence of IBD (Crohn’s & UC) in those communities. Similar patterns of increased IBD have been noted in those living in an area with naturally high fluoride and in workers exposed to fluoride on the job. Authors state there seems to be a genetic component. People who brush their teeth frequently are also at higher risk of IBD. Animal studies confirm fluoride inflames the bowels.

    See: Fluoride: a risk factor for inflammatory bowel disease? Follin-Arbelet B, Moum B. Scand J Gastroenterol. 2016 May 19:1-6.

  • Seabreezes1

    Fluoride is neither the cause nor cure for everyone with IBD, but as an adjuvant and inflammatory drug known to inflame Peyer’s patches, it will worsen the symptoms in most if not all.

  • Ruth

    I think there may be many potential factors involved in Crohn’s. Fluoride may be one, vaccines another, even GMOs or gluten sensitivity. These things may work independently of each other, or in conjunction. I don’t think vaccines should be overlooked, however, because of their effect on the immune system and I think the whole premise of vaccination is problematic.

  • Seabreezes1

    Agreed. Fluoride, GMOs, pesticides, and adjuvant ingredients in vaccines are all inflammatory poisons that prompt the same type of inflammatory and immune responses. I once gave up milk in an attempt to relieve symptoms. Didn’t work. Then I gave up bread. No dice. Then when I gave up wheat, milk, corn, eggs and only drank or cooked with bottled water…. I got a lot better. Tap water avoidance was critical, but any of the other ingredients could plunge me back into hell.

  • Reynaud

    “This article is PROOF that Vaccines Lead to Crohn’s Disease.” ???

    That’s really all it takes to prove causation of a very complex disease? An article written by a mental health therapist?

  • Monet

    Your article is flawed.

    You wrote:

    “Proof that Vaccines Lead to Crohn’s Disease
    Research studies have linked vaccinations, including Gardasil, with the development of autoimmune disorders. Vaccines are often the final assault to a weakened immune system which cause autoimmune disorders, including Crohn’s disease. [10]”

    I note that your “proof” that vaccines lead to Crohn’s Disease is a citation of another piece that YOU, yourself have written https://vactruth.com/2016/03/24/the-gardasil-vaccine-disaster/ that merely says:

    “As of 2010, it was estimated that 140 million Americans were living with one of 140 debilitating autoimmune disorders, including Crohn’s disease, type 1 diabetes, and multiple sclerosis.”

    I note too that some of your readers themselves believe this citation to be proof that vaccines cause Crohn’s Disease, and that in itself, is extremely disturbing. Chinese whispers can be a fun as a child, but in the hands of an adult in real life, it’s a potentially dangerous game.

    You talk of flawed science, but your own argument is flawed. You state, unequivocally, that you have “Proof that vaccines lead to Crohn’s Disease” and you mislead countless people who obviously trust you to know what you’re talking about. As a person who is in a position to influence the thinking of others, you need to get your facts straight and quote from actual medical literature… and not your own flawed, distorted, and fallacious writing.

    You also quote .pw websites as some of your sources of reputable knowledge on the subject matter. It’s well known that these sites are also known as “spam” sites that steal and/or twist and distort original content for their webmaster’s own financial gain.

    Furthermore, your comment;

    “a vaccination targeting MAP will contain a variety of toxic ingredients which will have the end result of lowering the ability of the immune system and decreasing the body’s ability to fight MAP or anything else for that matter”.

    Well I suggest you stop breathing because air itself contains oxygen which is known to be toxic.

    “Yet oxygen is toxic to life at concentrations only slightly greater than that present in air.” Haugaard, N.I.E.L.S., 1968. Cellular mechanisms of oxygen toxicity. Physiological reviews, 48(2), pp.311-373.

    I challenge you to find even one piece of reputable peer reviewed, academically published evidence that proves Crohn’s Disease is caused by vaccinations.

    Your cause will never be taken seriously as long as you continue down the path of quoting unreliable sources and hearsay as the foundation of your rationalization.

  • So what you are saying is that no study has conclusively proven if or not, vaccines can lead to Chrohn’s Disease. So, you really don’t know if or not vaccines are causative.

    Environmental Risk Factors for Inflammatory Bowel Disease
    Natalie A. Molodecky, BSc and Gilaad G. Kaplan, MD, MPH, FRCPCcorresponding author

    Despite years of investigation, the environmental risk factors that have been identified have not explained the pathogenesis of IBD. Several environmental factors, such as smoking, appendicitis, OCPs, diet, breastfeeding, infections/vaccinations, antibiotics, helminths, and childhood hygiene, have been implicated in the increased worldwide incidence of IBD. However, even the most consistently demonstrated environmental risk factor, smoking, contributes only partially to disease pathogenesis (ie, most smokers do not have CD and most CD patients do not smoke). Thus, further studies are necessary to better understand the environmental determinants of IBD.


    And additionally all these studies would not make you ever question the connection between the MMR vaccine and intestinal disorders?


  • I liked this article, and I find it to be clearly sensible, responsible, and factual. The article makes more complete sense than obviously anything your biased mind will ever allow you to comprehend.

  • Janet newham

    Research has made tentative connection between measles jab and sharp rise in chrones disease (Lancet 1994: 343: 105)

  • AutismDadd

    How about that, a researcher in Britain made a vaccine for a debilitating illness. Wonder what else is known but not said. Had the General Medical Council, MMR makers GlaxoSmithKline and MERCK (synonymous with consumer death) been informed? Has Brian Deer been told?

  • AutismDadd

    And what if the vaccine causes antibodies to attack the host? What if some part of the brain is like this bacteria? We are in fact only 10% human in our genes, so who can predict outcomes for all? But of course let the experiment begin and the one size fits all do its thing. And lets prepare for the denial that follows when recipients become ill with some new condition.

  • Reynaud

    The only bias I might have is that I prefer broad based verifiable and reproducible scientific evidence instead of poorly supported shallow conjecture by an unqualified author like in this article.

  • So in other words you have a need to deny the obvious truth. In your case that is known as and called belonging to the vaccine trolling, shillary. What reproducible scientific evidence does the CDC have in regard to actual vaccine safety? I contend that they actually have nothing.To have any chance of proving me wrong, you need need to respond directly to this below. I can copy and paste the entire page for you here, if that will help you realize better what I am asking of you?
