On the other hand, some hypothesize that we need parasites and other organisms in our system – that our lifestyle is too hygienic and allows our immune system to attack itself, rather than these other organisms.
Or… Another hypothesis? Who knows?
Certainly not me. But with all the experts here, lurking or not, would like to see it shot down.
I never bought in to saying my immune system's too strong or too weak, or even mistaken. I can think of arguments that are epidemiological, or environmental, or biological, as those are the culprits I usually hear about.
Helminths (roundworms?) have recently been tried, as a therapy. Maybe the method of administration makes the difference. They like blood. Maybe in some people it's easier for them to access human blood. They love being in large bowels because we often eat other animals. In fact, eating pork that isn't done enough is a good way to get them.
If their young got into, or were born in, the bloodstream?
People don't like talking about them, so I should stay on topic. We could test this by seeing if maybe even a much smaller dose of something is much more deadly to them than us, helps with disability, and kills their eggs. I think there are roundworm (not "MS") killing treatments that work this way. Maybe a small dose of cyclophosphamide could work just as well? But you'd have a time staying out of danger long-term.
