I've been in remission for years so I don't frequent this group very much anymore but thought you'd all enjoy some pics of my normal colonoscopy last month with whipwormA helminth with a tapering whiplike body that lives in the colon. In helminthic therapy, the microscopic eggs of either the human Trichuris trichiura (TTO) or pig Trichuris suis (TSO) are taken in a drink. in there doing their thing. Wish I had pics of the hooks in my small intestine too but as you guys know the scope doesn't go that far. My GIGastroenterology is the branch of medicine concerned with disorders of the digestive system which includes all the organs of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract (alimentary canal) from mouth to anus. Physicians practicing in this field of medicine are called gastroenterologists or GI specialists. doc went & got his medical student to come in the room just to see them because here in the USA "you don't see these anymore". LOL! [1]

This patient had had to wait for 22 months after first commencing helminthic therapyThe reintroduction to the digestive tract of a controlled number of specially domesticated, mutualistic helminths (intestinal worms) in the form of microscopic eggs or larvae to reconstitute a depleted biome to treat and prevent chronic inflammation, autoimmune disease and other immunological disorders including allergy. before his disease responded to the treatment. He posted the following message to the Facebook Helminthic Therapy Support group at 24 months, i.e., 3½ years before these images were taken. [2]

I have been in complete remission for the past two months. That's right friends. Work of art solid loggers every morning! 200 decibel farts with ease instead of trying to eek things out as calmly as I can praying I don't shit myself every time. ZERO dietary restrictions. I am about 80/20 now on the PHD and will probably always stay that way as I know real food is key. . . but I've got healthy little kids so every now and then in social or family settings guess who partakes of things like pizza and ice cream. . . this guy!

I am almost at 2 years of combination therapy with NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus and TTOthe ova (eggs) of the human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura for a long list of symptoms I won't go into as it can get lengthy. If there is any pearl I can offer anyone out there, the biggest one with worms would be patience. We are all different and figuring out dosage can take a long time. I have always been positive for NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus ever since starting but I burn through TTOthe ova (eggs) of the human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura like crazy. I upped my dose of TTOthe ova (eggs) of the human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura to 50 every week at the start of the year and this is barely enough to keep me colonized and I do mean barely. Monthly fecal floats have been key for me in determining this. Lots of NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus eggs every time and barely any TTOthe ova (eggs) of the human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura (usually 1-2 eggs in the whole slide & sometimes none which always sucks cuz then you don't know if you have any or if the infection is just so light you are missing them). This info was what helped me and my provider up my TTOthe ova (eggs) of the human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura. I will probably stay at 50/wk since I seemed to have found the lowest dose that seems to work. . . unless I suddenly find tons of TTOthe ova (eggs) of the human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura on my floats down the road now that I am in remission. I suspect that many with colonic issues who fail helminthic therapyThe reintroduction to the digestive tract of a controlled number of specially domesticated, mutualistic helminths (intestinal worms) in the form of microscopic eggs or larvae to reconstitute a depleted biome to treat and prevent chronic inflammation, autoimmune disease and other immunological disorders including allergy. aren't taking enough worms for a long enough period and would probably have negative fecal floats if they were done.

I can't give all the credit to the worms though. I do a lot of other stuff still. I am still on Asacol and I still take a few probioticsMicroorganisms that are believed to provide health benefits when consumed. (VSL#3, Sach B., PA, Megaspore), prebiotics (Bimuno, apple pectin), eat real food ***most of the time - see above***, and take a few other supplements like Uni Liver, Mag Malate, vitamin C, and vitamin D. Things like exercise, sleep, water, avoiding caffeine and doing what you love seem to have helped too.

To recap. . . patience guys. I was a year and a half into HThelminthic therapy at the start of the year and flaring. My GIGastroenterology is the branch of medicine concerned with disorders of the digestive system which includes all the organs of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract (alimentary canal) from mouth to anus. Physicians practicing in this field of medicine are called gastroenterologists or GI specialists. wouldn't do my colonoscopy because I was so inflamed he thought I would perf. He thought I should be admitted for IV steroids and started on Remicade. I have had this monster for 13 years and have never felt as good as I have in the past two months. The only time I have ever had a solid lasting remission for months on end was years ago when after being on 6MP for a few years I got really neutropenic and my white count dropped to 1. No bloody diarrhea (remission) but weekly labs and constant fear by my doc and myself of ending up septic from one of the many mad bugs I get exposed to at the hospital where I work. Thanks 6MP. . . not! (Yeah I don't take that one anymore). Somehow the combo above is working. I am just so happy right now. This is from the guy who was really depressed in January. I felt like I tried everything. Worms, multiple fecal transplants from multiple donors, LDNlow-dose naltrexone. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low-dose_naltrexone Wikipedia:Low-dose naltrexone], medical marijuana, acupuncture, every kind of probioticMicroorganisms that are believed to provide health benefits when consumed., prebiotic, herbal supplement, and/or fermented food I could get my hands on. Thousands of dollars on hundreds of treatments over the years. I've squirted more things up there than I care to discuss.

I've found that there are so many beautiful people and things in life I wasn't into before, when constantly struggling to get by rather than really living life. I'm playing music again. I look forward to traveling instead of fearing the lack of bathrooms.
