Natural symbiotic immunomodulators

Helminthic therapy involves deliberately hosting a controlled number of carefully selected, harmless intestine-dwelling helminths such as Necator americanus (Na) and Trichuris trichiura (Tto).

Helminth symbionts modulate the human immune system, balancing overactive immune responses associated with allergic, inflammatory and autoimmune disorders.

Until the 20th century soil based helminths were endemic throughout most of the world. Recent history however has seen the introduction of modern sewerage systems and medical advances, which have all but eradicated these organisms in post industrial westernised society over just a few generations.

 

Over the same time period, immune dysfunction has become an epidemic in the developed world. It is estimated that in the USA up to 50 million people now suffer from one or more autoimmune diseases. In Europe the rate of allergy is increasing by 5% every year and it was estimated that in 2015 half of the entire European population suffered from at least one allergy.

By contrast incidence of immune dysfunction in the developing world has remained minimal and static, just as it was in the industrialized world a mere 100 years ago.

Since 1989 a theory known as the Hygiene Hypothesis has gained support in the scientific community. It states that our modern sanitized environment has led to a lack of microorganisms and symbiotic helminths in the human biome. These organisms are seen as necessary to regulate the immune system and without them immune dysfunctions, allergies and inflammatory diseases has increased to epidemic proportions.

Modern sanitized living has massively reduced the number and variety of organisms living in coexistance with us. These organisms train and modulate our immune system. The sudden eradication in our environment has left us in a state of imbalance. The consequence of this absence can be seen in the modern epidemic of allergic and autoimmune disorders.

Parasites have evolved to damp our immune responses so that they can stay in our bodies. Our immune system evolved to expect parasites to damp it. So in a world with no parasites, it behaves like a person leaning into the wind when it drops: The system falls over.

The obvious answer is to replace the helminths that our bodies are lacking. In order to restore balance. If we can allow their influence to gently rein in and modulate our over-active and misdirected immune systems, we can once again achieve the equilibrium that has been lost due to modern living conditions.

The startling success of using hookworm and other helminths to treat immune dysfunction has led to the rise of Helminthic Therapy. Which is now being used by a growing number of people willing to try an experimental dose of worms to reduce allergic, inflammatory and autoimmune symptoms.

Hookworms and whipworms can gently and safely modulate an out of control immune system so that sufferers of many allergic, inflammatory and autoimmune conditions can achieve relief from their symptoms and become less reliant on conventional pharmaceutical drugs.

More than 10 years ago, a few pioneers started using and selling helminths for their therapeutical use. And with great success! That decade of experience let to a dedicated Helminthic Therapy Wiki website and a great Facebook HT support group. Both places are great to find more information and personal experiences.

We decided to offer this therapy because it helped us tremendously with our autoimmune disorders and we want to support other people like us by making this great therapy available for everybody.

Based on a decade of experimenting and 5 years of personal experience we came to the 3 stages for helminthic therapy as described below. Feel free to contact us by email or book an appointment online in case you want more information. You will be reimbursed 50% of the cost of a consultation if you decide to initiate therapy.

Schedule online. It's easy, fast and secure.

Stage 1: Introduction of probiotic helminths

The first step into helminthic therapy is introducing the probiotic helminths in low controlled doses. In this stage we assess how sensitive your immune system responds to the therapy. For both species we offer starter packages with fixed doses. The doses are carefully chosen to reduce the side effects to a minimum, while still delivering therapeutic relevant numbers of probionts.

The method of administration depends on the chosen species. Trichuris trichiura probiotic ova are taken orally and Necator americanus larvae are applied topically with a bandage. The choice of species depends on your condition. Necator americanus is more versatile in supressing autoimmune diseases and allergies, While Trichuris trichiura is mainly used for inflammatory bowel diseases. Tto is also very convenient to use. The oral doses can be stored in the refrigerator for at least a year.

Both the Tto and Na starter packages contain fixed doses ideal to start with the therapy. The Na starter package contains 3 doses. The first dose is fixed to 5 larvae. The following doses will be 15 and 10 larvae in case the first dose was well tolerated. For adults who are especially sensitive or children we adjust the second and third dose in consultation with the customer. You will receive each dose seperate 12 weeks apart. As the Na larvae have limited shelf life. A typical immune response to the larvae takes about 9-11 weeks. Hence the dosing every 12 weeks.

The Tto starter package contains 6 doses of 40 ova. Each dose to be taken every 2 weeks. In case of sensitivity you can wait longer between each dose. You will receive all doses together. Keep the doses in the refrigerator.

Each package contains all equipment required and you will receive an illustrated inoculation guide by email upon shipment. We guarantee life arrival of the probionts. Cold weather might impact our shipping schedule as the organisms are sensitive to temperatures below freezing point. We make two attempts to deliver a viable dose during these conditions. If we do not succeed we kindly ask to wait for better weather conditions or opt for our optional express shipment with an insulated packaging.

Pricing: All prices include standard shipment by registered mail. Basic tracking available for most countries.

Express shipment available on request.

Na starter package: 3 doses of L3 larvae, 5/15/10 larvae at 12 weeks intervals: €350

Tto starter package: 6 doses of 40 ova: €200

Stage 2: Building up a therapeutic helminth colony

Though some people will see benefits quite soon after starting the treatment, it is not usually a fast acting therapy. Any benefits that appear in the 3 months following the first dose may not be consistent. The majority of people will see the most improvement after roughly 6 - 9 months. Our starter packages cover this time period with the best dosing regimen.

There have been cases of some people only seeing benefits after 18 months and many have found their health continue to improve when they continue dosing. For this reasons we advise to continue dosing regularly as long as you keep improving. For Na this means continious dosing at 12 weeks intervals with a well tolerated dose. For most people this means around 15 larvae. Please consult us for personal advise. For Tto we advise to dose up to 1000 ova per year split into several smaller well tolerated doses. We decide on a personal dosing regimen based on your experience with the starter package.

For continued dosing with helminth probionts we have the following options:

Na triple package: 3 doses of L3 larvae, up to 50 larvae per dose, valid for 2 years: €450

Na single dose: Up to 50 larvae per dose: €200

Tto year package: 1000 ova in personal doses: €750

Tto single order: €1/ovum, minimum 300 ova in personal doses: €300

Cold weather might impact our shipping schedule as the organisms are sensitive to temperatures below freezing point. We make two attempts to deliver a viable dose during these conditions. If we do not succeed we kindly ask to wait for better weather conditions or opt for our optional express shipment with an insulated packaging.

Stage 3: Maintenance dosing

Further intensive dosing is no longer required once your probiotic colony reaches the suitable size to modulate your immune system effectively. Symbiotic immunomodulation can't cure autoimmune diseases though. As it is effectively the lack of these probiotic helminths which induces the disease. Even if you do find complete remission from your symptoms you would need to maintain an active colony of Na and/or Tto to remain symptom free.

Usually dosing is halted untill symptoms start to return. Symptoms will return as you gradually loose your probiotic helminths.

At this point it is time to take a maintenance dose. The dose size is usually your regular dose size. From this point on you know your maintenance dose regimen. It's the time between your last dose and the return of symptoms. From this point on you can take a new dose at this time interval. Most people require 1 to 2 doses per year to keep the benefits from helminthic therapy.

For maintenance dosing with helminth probionts we have the following options:

Na triple package: 3 doses of L3 larvae, up to 50 larvae per dose, valid for 2 years: €450

Na single dose: Up to 50 larvae per dose: €200

Tto year package: 1000 ova in personal doses: €750

Tto single order: €1/ovum, minimum 300 ova in personal doses: €300
