Solid scientific evidence shows that millions of years of co-evolution have created a symbioticSymbiosis is a close, long-term relationship between organisms of different species. Helminths are obligatory symbionts because they depend entirely on their host for survival, and they are also ectosymbionts because they live on their host’s body surface, albeit the inner surface of the digestive tract. The species used in helminthic therapy are also mutualists. relationship between humans and 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 organisms used in helminthic therapy are, strictly speaking, not parasites, but mutualists, because they have a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship with their hosts.), it is now clear that some exposure to this class of organisms is necessary for human health.

In the last fifteen years, four safe, mutualisticMutualism is a type of symbiotic relationship between individuals of different species where each organism benefits from the other. helminth species have been domesticated and made available commercially so that we are now able to enjoy the benefits of hosting a few of these important macroorganismsAn organism that can be seen by the naked eye, e.g., a mature helminth. without the risk of disease.

On this site, we share the extensive research supporting this therapy, along with many hundreds of personal stories demonstrating it's effects, and tips to help manage the therapy and optimise its benefits.

This is a collaborative, crowd-sourced site administered by volunteers with no commercial interest in the therapy.
