    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 self-treatment - not a medical treatment - that is also known as worm therapy, helminth therapy and 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.

    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. [1]

    During the early part of the 21st century, four safe mutualistic helminth species were domesticated and offered commercially so that it's now possible to enjoy the benefits of hosting a few of these important probiotic macroorganisms without the risk of disease.

    This site presents the extensive research supporting this practice, along with more than a thousand personal stories demonstrating it's effects, plus 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.
