Crohn's Disease Therapy





A reader saw my item on the application of worms to the problem of colitis.  The work that I commented on certainly indicated that Crohn’s disease and related issues were prospective targets for a designed therapy.  This shows us that a group of researchers are pursuing this with significant success.

I was also able to achieve remission from Crohn's after getting hookworms and whipworms. You can follow my progress here:


Also, there's a wiki page that contains a ton of information on this topic, including helminthic therapy providers:


A whole lot of research articles on helminthic therapy can be found here:



I am publishing these because I know folks who have this type of problem suffer mightily and are desperate for relief.

There are three types of worms that may be used and have been used as far as I can tell.  None reproduce inside the bowel and this permits tight population control.  It is thus a matter of choosing the most convenient.  Actual blood absorption is minute and will not affect ones health.  These worms cause no disease in humans and are mere inconveniences.

So odd and counter indicative for most of our assumptions as this therapy might be, there is plenty of data suggesting that it helps restabilize the operation of the bowel and restores general health.  Upon which, it should be possible to simply remove the worms and one hopes the bowels remain healthy.  That is a reasonable prognosis if the disease has completely disappeared.

No need to remove them. Small quantities of worms don't give you any negative side effects and the modulate your immune system to keep it in balance and prevent other auto-immune diseases from developing. Read my note on FB titled "Intro to Helminthic Therapy" - it gives a very good explanation. Also, feel free to friend me to follow up on my progress.
