New direction for this blog

I have not had an editorial position for this blog, until now. No consistent direction or unifying theme for what to say except in general terms to speak about helminthic therapy and anything that might, however distantly, relate to the health of those who approach us for hookworm, or for whipworm. Often I have been embarrassingly guilty [...]

Things I would do if I was still sick

Or that you can, or that you can use to try and stay healthy. If I suffered from any nasty immunological disorder, or any involving chronic inflammation this is what I would do: 1. I would not rely on experts, so-called, who have managed to create a situation where all these diseases are out-of-control and [...]

I am the primary reservoir for production of doses of hookworm and whipworm for AIT's version of helminthic therapy, and recently there has been some speculation as to my current status re infection with Hepatitis, HIV, etc. As you can see (you can download the test results here: "Jasper Test Results 10-2010.pdf") I am negative [...]

What is helminthic therapy?

Helminthic therapy: the reason for this site First, a nit. Helminthic therapy (hell min thick) is the correct term for treatment with helminths, not the term worm therapy (see reasoning here) It is certainly the term used by scientists and those in the know, so if you want to find good information you will have to [...]
