I founded Autoimmune Therapies, the first company to provide helminths with humans as their definitive host for sale, in the summer of 2007.
This after self-infection with hookworm resulted in complete remission of my asthma and severe seasonal allergies in January of 2006. 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.
During the ensuing years I have worked constantly to improve the practice of helminthic therapy, refined our treatment protocols, ability to identify those who require a different approach, and now unpleasant side effects like diarrhoea are much less frequent than they were. There are also very few diseases I have not seen or provided helminths for, which means we can tell you if others have had good results, or if you should look elsewhere for relief from your symptoms.
This blog is an outlet for my thoughts and experiences providing helminths to the sick. Over the years we have endured a lot, including having to leave the USA to avoid prosecution for things like doing a job for which I was not qualified, as well as selling something the FDA categorised as a drug, informing us on a Friday afternoon at our house in Santa Cruz.
So the posts here have been sporadic, as well as wildly variable in content and quality. Things I hope to change starting now, September of 2014.
It took us five years plus to get over the loss of our home and children, who remained in California with their mother in my case. As a result of that I have lost a lot of time, but having regained my equilibrium I want to make of helminthic therapy everything I can.
As part of that effort I am going to try and document regularly here anything I feel could be of use to someone struggling with one of the “modern” immunological, allergic, autoimmune or chronic inflammatory diseases, which are likely mostly all the same thing in terms of origin, and treatment.
Certainly in my experience I can confidently say that were helminthic therapy a patentable drug of a classic kind the drug companies would be all over it.
For those with healthy skepticism consider that where I a charlatan I could have chosen something both more attractive to you, but also because fake cures have no effect, of no interest to the FDA. An hour with cable TV in the US after midnight will illustrate my point.
These are all diseases caused, often involving antibiotics, by damage to the ecosystem defined by your body.
So much of what I discuss here will also concern things you can do or try, or that you should avoid, that spring from that understanding. Many of which are free, or very nearly so.
The thing most of you will struggle with, to the p0int in many cases that you consciously choose poor health, will be the need to change your world view radically. So in the interests of not choosing ill health over the discomfort that causes, please try and retain an open mind.
Good luck in your search for health.
