The Best Eight Doctors

The best eight doctors anywhere
And no one can deny it
Are sunshine, water, rest and air
A few safe worms, some FMTs
Exercise and diet.

The Top-up Dose

The pipette's squeeze,
The liquid's squirt,
The hope the dose won't be inert.

The dressing's on,
The wait's begun,
The clock is set, so all is done.

Four minutes in,
I hold my breath.
Suspense like this could be my death!

Five minutes… No,
Can't feel a thing!
Why is nothing happening?

Six minutes… Ah!
What was that?
Perhaps I'll press the dressing flat.

Yes? … No!
A false alarm.
My kingdom for an itchy arm!

Hang on...
Was that it?
I think I may have just been bit!

Oh, yessssssssssssss!
What a dream!
I'm all hitched up to a brand new team.

The Dew Itch

When you walk in the grass
and you get an itch,
don't scratch your skin,
something good is burrowing in.

The Twelve Days of Christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas
my true love sent to me:
twelve donors pooping,
eleven stools-a-steaming,
ten eggs-a-hatching,
nine technicians counting,
eight doctors doubting,
seven asthmatics singing,
six autistics mingling,
five years relief,
four months wait,
three days itch,
two plastic tubes,
and five tiny hookwormA helminth that lives in the small intestine. Necator americanus (NA) is the only hookworm species used in helminthic therapy. Its microscopic larvae are applied periodically to the skin. lar-vae.

In the Ghetto

(I got my start on NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus through the HookwormA helminth that lives in the small intestine. Necator americanus (NA) is the only hookworm species used in helminthic therapy. Its microscopic larvae are applied periodically to the skin. Underground. I was not able to drive myself to the pick up point, so my saintly mother took me. My provider would generously not accept any money for their donation, so I sang them this song in gratitude.)

On a cold and cloudy April day
A man put a patch on his arm and prayed
In the ghetto
In the ghetto

And his mama cried.

'Cause if there's one thing that he does need
It's ten more hungry mouths to feed
In the ghetto
In the ghetto

People don't you understand?
A fellow needs a helpin' hand
So he can grow to be a wormy old man
Some da-ay
In the ghetto

Words set to this tune.

The Amazing Dr Wriggly

All the Queen's doctors
And all the Queen's men
Couldn't give Johnny
His health back again.

But then he met Wriggly,
Who knew what to do.
So Johnny felt better,
And so too might you!
