I recently signed up on this forum, mainly because I have been able to put my MS in remission using a combination of diet changes, stress reduction, and and overall improvement in my quality of life, which based on my personal experience are some of the major issues causing/contributing to MS, and I wanted to share my success story, along with what I've tried along the way that worked or didn't. I also cured my IBS (which I've had for several years) using a protocol I developed after gathering info from lots of different resources.
I'm posting this topic because my husband (who is diagnosed with a different autoimmune disorder) is considering trying helminth therapy. We've disovered that his condition, a type of arthritis, is not very dependent on his diet, but is greatly affected by stress, which he is in the process of improving his reaction to. In the meantime, we figured helminth therapy might be the ticket...
Since I am currently not symptomatic, I am less inclined to pay for the therapy, even though I would love to try it myself (but it's pretty expensive). We've been doing a ton of research on it, and surprisingly it has proven the most beneficial for folks with MS (among other autoimmune disorders). I believe there are currently a few clinical trials using helminths on MS patients.
I'm wondering if anyone on this forum has had any experience with this?
Below are some awesome websites we've come across in our research that are worth reading if you don't know much about helminth therapy:http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2012/ ... f-absence/http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142 ... 57460.html
