Grow Your Own Doctor
The following article was provided to Human Paratuberculosis Foundation by Dr. Judith Lipton. It was written in May 2015, but still remains relevant today. It is an excellent overview of MAP, and provides practical advice for patients who want to convince their doctor to treat their MAP infection. HPF is grateful to Dr. Lipton for her contributions to the field and for providing this helpful article.
Dr. Judith Lipton is a semi-retired psychiatrist and one of the few people in the world who can claim to be “cured” of Crohn’s Disease. She was treated for 6 years by Prof. Thomas Borody with Anti-MAP antibiotics under the theory that MAP causes Crohn’s Disease. She got well, and has been entirely well since 2004.
