To be honest i don't really know much about it apart from the little i have read. I think it is quite a left-field treatment at the moment so i very much doubt any doctors would give it to you or even agree for you to follow such a thing yourself.
I think the main side effect is anemia, but as with all parasites i'm sure there are more, i think it basically comes down to whether the positives outway the negatives.
I was hoping that maybe one of the clever people on these forums would know more or may have a look into it.
It is my opinion that acne is an immune disorder so immunotherapy maybe the root to a cure. Helminthic Therapy Website
Have a look at the list of diseases they say will likely respond to heminthic therapyhere
Like most people on these forums i often think why it is that you get indigenous peoples with virtually no signs of acne. The most common given reasons are diet and lifestyle factors such as time spent outside[sunlight exposure], amount of exercise and stress. What if one of the reasons is that they have parasites and such and more things for their immune systems to be dealing with.
I wonder what the rates of allergies and inflammatory diseases are with the indigenous peoples who show no signs of acne?
These are just my mad ideas and trying to string things together without a proper understanding so i am quite happy to be corrected.
I think i can remember reading that the Romans may have had acne, maybe their lifestyles had also led to a reduction in parasites etc so their immune systems started to go haywire.
What if acne is an autoimmune disease/immune disorder?
God gave us everything we need; the earth to live on, animals to feast on, vegetables to make side dishes and fruit to be eaten in moderation.
The devil put grains, beats and sugarcane on the earth to tempt us.
For approximately 2.5 million to 10,000 years ago most of us strayed away from temptation but the devils influence grew stronger and eventually we swayed to his evil ways.
God new that those whose faith was strong would never fall to temptation so he punished those who took to the pleasures of grains and sugar by not giving us the ability to digest grains and making sugar poisonous, eventually leading to all kinds of health problems including acne.
But some wanted there cake and to eat it too, free of health problems, so they made a pact with the devil and sold their soul's for acne free skin.
We see these people consuming delicious breaded, dough based meals, baked goods and confectioneries but with crystal clear skin.
These people are walking with the devil!!
They are the spawn of satan!!
Paleo is the righteous path my children!!
Your faith must be strong!!
Do not fall to temptation!!
