I founded Autoimmune Therapies, the first company to provide helminths with humans as their definitive host for sale, after going to Africa, Cameroon, in January of 2006 and infecting myself with hookworm. This self-infection with hookworm resulted in complete remission of my asthma and severe seasonal allergies. Something modern medicine had not been able to accomplish in a lifetime of trying.
I decided based on my reading of the available scientific literature, various parasitology texts, and information provided by the Centers for Disease Control in the United States, who recommend US doctors not treat light infections of hookworm, that what was obviously a safe and effective therapy should be made available to those like me for whom modern medicine had nothing to offer.
Autoimmune Therapies was the result.
This blog is an outlet for my thoughts and experiences providing helminths to the sick.
