Because Crohn's sucks
Do hookworms help Crohn’s?
If you haven’t heard of this, take a watch:
WOW… interesting! I wonder if those two had tried SCD before. What do you think?
It’s hard to say. Can you read the hookworms on a person’s face…
Thanks for sharing. I’d like to hear more.
I found the woman in the story’s blog (waiting for the cure) and found it very interesting (she had tried SCD). Apparently, the worms ameliorate the body’s inflammatory response, so they won’t be rejected. What I’m confused about is, if the worms reduce the inflammatory response, but you are still eating foods that encourage bad bacteria, aren’t you doing damage to your gut still?
My understanding is that if you start with an injured gut and encourage the bad bacteria to overpopulate, you will continue the damage. If, on the other hand, the gut is not injured, the bad bacteria shouldn’t become such a problem. How exactly the action of the hook works play into this cycle I can only guess.
