    Default Using Parasites To Fight Autoimmune Diseases

    Ruthie Blum
    December 14 2014

    Israeli expert is experimenting with intestinal parasites to fight conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease.

    It is common to make fun of men for acting like “big babies” when they’re even mildly sick. According to Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld, whoheads the Shlomo and Pola Zabludowicz Center of Autoimmune Diseases (eng.sheba.co.il/567/329.htm) in the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer, there is a physiological basis for this behavior.

    Indeed, says the world-renowned Israeli autoimmunologist, prolific author and founder and editor of the Israel Medical Association Journal, Autoimmunity Reviews and J Autoimmunity: “Women are literally the stronger gender, with a better immune system. Not only do they outlive men, but when a woman has a cold, she goes about her business, and when a man has one, he takes to his bed and cries for a cup of tea.”
    But this stronger immune system is also why, explains Shoenfeld, “with a few exceptions, autoimmune diseases attack women more than men, and usually at childbearing ages.”

    Back to basics — now using clay, leeches and worms like the doctors did 200 years ago!

    Very interesting. I would be open to doing this, but under the supervision of a naturopath. If ingesting eggs that dies soon after hatching sounds doable.

    Fascinating research. Should'nt be too difficult to entice investors. I was not aware that there are 80 different autoimmune diseases.

    I'm pleased to see this posted here with a current date, because the information is not new. I heard an in-depth broadcast on public radio at least — at least — two years ago. Part of the reason why it hasn't been widely adopted may be the ew factor.

    They say that fiction is based in fact. I was once watching the old John Wayne Civil War movie, "The Horse Soldiers", where the company doctor patched a soldier's leg wound with tree moss for , I guess, similar reasons as you describe in your post. According to the story, though, the soldier ripped the moss away be cause "it itched badly". The doctor scolded him for doing that, as the itching was a sign of a successful healing, and the wound then became infected with gangreen. So out came the bottle of whiskey and the saw, :-( .

    Filthy, dusty old spiderwebs will also stanch arterial bleeding without causing side effects like infection. Old wives tale supported by personal experience.
