I did this a bit over five years ago. They were the kind of worms that burrow through your skin and make a home in your gut. The guy who sold them to me (Jasper Lawrence, who ran Autoimmune Therapies at that time) promised that the worms would stop my MS or he would give me my money back. He did give me my money back, a bit over a year later when I had carried on getting worse and was about to go onto Tysabri.
This has been in my mind because there was an article in the Guardian yesterday, which gave a lot of space to people who are convinced that this is a way to help people with MS. Here’s a quote
“Parker and his researchers have gathered data from hundreds of users and growers. “I’m convinced,” he says. “Based on the evidence I’ve seen, it is very effective,” he says. “It has a really good benefit-to-risk ratio, especially for serious autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis”.
Like I said, it did nothing for me. Has anyone else had experience of this, good or bad? Or do you know anyone who has?
