Welcome to the Helminthic Therapy wiki
This is the world’s largest information database documenting the science, management, experience and results of helminth replacement, a form of probiotic therapy also known as worm therapy, helminth therapy and, more commonly, helminthic therapy.
Solid scientific evidence shows that millions of years of co-evolution have created a symbiotic relationship between humans and helminths that provides us with essential immune regulation.
Although some helminths
are known to cause disease and have been labeled parasites
, it is now clear that some exposure to this class of organisms is necessary for human health. 
All immunocompetent humans need regular exposure to helminths
in order to maintain optimal immune function and avoid risk for inflammation-associated disease… access to helminths
is a basic human need. 
In the past fifteen years, four safe, mutualistic 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 macroorganisms 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.
