Enterobius vermicularis (EVEnterobius vermicularis. [https://helminthictherapywiki.org/wiki/index.php/Enterobius_vermicularis Enterobius vermicularis]) has arguably been the most successful helminth of the Western world and is still infecting people in industrialised regions today, but it will never qualify as a therapeutic helminth because of its disadvantages:

  1. its numbers are not controllable
  2. it spreads very easily to other people
  3. it can cause uncomfortable anal itching
  4. it may be a vector for the intestinal protozoan Dientamoeba fragilis [1]
  5. it can cause acute appendicitis [2] and appendiceal colic [3]
  6. it can migrate to organs beyond the intestine (e.g., kidney, male urinary tract and female genital tract/uterus [4]
  7. it can cause urinary tract infections and vaginitis [5]
  8. it can, in extremely rare cases, cause Mesenteric Lymphadenopathy [6]
  9. it has even manifested post traumatic stress disorder-like symptoms. [7]

EVEnterobius vermicularis. [https://helminthictherapywiki.org/wiki/index.php/Enterobius_vermicularis Enterobius vermicularis] can also provide therapeutic benefits.

One study found that, in atopic children infected with EVEnterobius vermicularis. [https://helminthictherapywiki.org/wiki/index.php/Enterobius_vermicularis Enterobius vermicularis], there was not only a lack of any symptoms as a result of the infection, but that, “there seemed to be some indication of immunosuppression in those children with a positive history of allergic disease.” [8]

Therapeutic benefits have also been reported anecdotally by several people who have hosted EnterobiusA human helminth known as 'pinworm' in the US, and 'threadworm' in the UK..

He had to re read them THREE times! Said he just couldn't believe it but seems since my pin worm infection the ANA shows me going into remission and the sed rate has gone from 350 to 40! and my CRPC-reactive protein is an inflammation marker but is not a reliable indicator of inflammation, especially in chronic inflammatory disorders. was near normal.

My grandson got pin worms when he started school … the infection was left to run for longer than usual. It was noticeable that his asthma and food allergies got better, and indeed it has never come back as bad as it was. [11]

Control of E. vermicularisA human helminth known as 'pinworm' in the US, and 'threadworm' in the UK. in those who are hosting therapeutic helminthsAn intestinal worm which grows large enough to be seen with the naked eye when mature but which is microscopic when administered in helminthic therapy.

The use of an anthelminthic drug to eradicate EVEnterobius vermicularis. [https://helminthictherapywiki.org/wiki/index.php/Enterobius_vermicularis Enterobius vermicularis] would kill at least some of a colony of therapeutic helminthsAn intestinal worm which grows large enough to be seen with the naked eye when mature but which is microscopic when administered in helminthic therapy. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helminths Wikipedia:Helminths], so anyone who is hosting therapeutic helminthsAn intestinal worm which grows large enough to be seen with the naked eye when mature but which is microscopic when administered in helminthic therapy. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helminths Wikipedia:Helminths] who also becomes infected with EVEnterobius vermicularis. [https://helminthictherapywiki.org/wiki/index.php/Enterobius_vermicularis Enterobius vermicularis] could try drinking kefir. This might provide sufficient control of EVEnterobius vermicularis.

I drank one glass of kefir and it seemed to eliminate them for about month. I had never tried kefir before. I thought it tasted disgusting but the pinworms went from severe to nothing overnight. [12]
