Seems like an irregularity in the microbiome causes the immune system to go crazy.

they're working hard in this fields, if they can only find a way to effectively restore and maintain homeostasis in the microbiome maybe we will get somewhere (I know theyv done this in C.diff and some UC patients).

I was just reading about IL17 last night as it is produced by nickel-specific lymphocytes and that coincides with my theory about nickel and Crohn's disease.

Then IL17 and TNFa increase levels of keratinocyte growth factor and the keratinocytes release IL8.

Thanks for sharing this
