New York Times writer dives deep into a new phenomenon: treating disease through parasites.
What if a strategic parasite infection could cure you of celiac disease? Eliminate irritable bowel disease? Correct your thyroid issues? An underground movement of using parasites to treat disease is starting with people desperate for relief who have been failed by modern medicine.
Moises Velasquez-Manoff is a renowned autoimmune disease writer for the New York Times and he has explored autoimmune disease through his book An Epidemic of Absence.Recently, he served as an expert panelist in the Beyond Celiac webinar, “When Your Body Fights Itself: Understanding Autoimmune Disease.” In his recent New York Timesarticle, “The Parasite Underground,” Velasquez-Manoff shares his experience, along with the experiences of many others, of using hookworms in an attempt to control their uncontrollable diseases, including autoimmune conditions.
The article covers stories of people who have had their lives changed by intentional parasitic infections. Still others have experienced little to no relief. One thing is for certain: science is starting to pay attention.
