{{Quote|indent}}The modes of action of LDN and helminths are different but they are compatible. LDN acts as a novel anti-inflammatory by raising endogenous endorphins and enkapahlins - its specifically the met-enkaphalin called Opioid Growth Factor (OGF) that does the healing, acting as an anti cell proliferative. Helminths secrete immunoregulatory molecules that promote the induction of regulatory T-cells while inhibiting the function of antigen presenting cells and other T-cells. Both modes of action will help to restore immune system homeostasis. Personally I use both, and think its a good combination for autoimmune and/or allergies.

I have been on ldn for about a year and had been on the rat tapewormsA helminth with a flat, ribbon-like, segmented body.
