I’m going to take a break from blogging for the summer.Â I just want to have some time away from thinking about worm therapy, and need to give the new things I’m doing some time to assess before writing about them.Â I’ll still take comments and answer questions, so keep ’em coming.
My action plan:
15 new hookworms
reservetrol 150 mg.
Udo’s Choice Super Bifido Plus probiotic (2 caps a day, working up to more) +
Udo’s ChoiceÂ Super 8 Hi-Potency Probiotic (1 cap a day, working up)
Fish oil: 3000 mg EPA/DHA (Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega)
Vit D: 7000 – 10,000 IU a day
Magnesium glycinate 350 mg. (about all I tolerate before getting loose stools)
magnesium chloride baths: 2 a day (this is helping with the magnesium deficiency symptoms, thank God!!)
multi vitamin + extra Vit A (since I am low in this)
meditation (1 -2 X a day), lots of sun, exercise, and prayer
I had an MR enterography done recently.Â It showed mild inflammation in the ileal-cecal valve with minor scarring, a very inflamed sigmoid colon, and my first ever fistula, going from the colon to an ovary.Â Very disappointing.Â So though the hookworms have helped fabulously, the wait to reinfect (I went 9 months this time) led to some pretty bad inflammation.Â My GI said the entire wall had eroded through, which is what led to the fistula.
Whipworms may help more, but AIT decided not to offer them to me due to anger about some of these blog contents.Â I may get access to them from another source down the road.Â But for now, hopefully the above plan will help things heal.Â Enjoying the summer bounty, the fruits of my trees in strict moderation, unfortunately (will a summer ever come where I can eat my plums with abandon?)
I hope everyone else has a much easier time with helminth therapy.Â It has not been a fun road for me, though I am grateful for the opportunity in trying them.Â Hopefully good days are to come.
May all of you with Crohn’s find relief.Â Here’s a prayer for your suffering: may you find what you need to get well.Â May you live pain free and free from fear.Â May your meals be joyous and deprivation be an unknown concept.
Finally, please pray for all of those people suffering terribly from this disease. I am not that religious, but prayer has been shown to work, and it’s cheap and easy!Â For everyone who reads this, send a silent vision of wellness for humanity.Â May we all return to a perfect state, and send our suffering to the wind, to be whispered then forgotten.Â Peace to all.
