Hookworms for Healing Overcomming chronic inflammation with hookworms

The only thing that made a signifigant difference for me in my health.....was hookworms. So I wrote the booklets to let you know the hookworm story :) Julie's Joint Pain Resolution Letter I was diagnosed by my MD, who I like a lot...with two chronic inflammation conditions...in my thyroid and my joints.

than just pills, they were not working for me, and the side effects were too much. Steve thought there was a chance if we worked on the underlying problem the drugs would be more effective. My MD is very open minded and supportive, he reviewed all the research I provided and he and I discussed everything regarding hookworms... and I got his consent to try.

6


So after months of gently informing me how a helminth approach could help, and feeling the illness was progressing quicker than I expected, I proceeded.

Some people really seem to miss the anti-inflammatory effect of hookworms.

The minute after I placed the hookworms on my foot I felt a little tingling, and then, believe it or not, pain felt like it was lifted away, I couldn’t believe it!

Steve suggested that I should try the worms and I kept postponing it. Fast forward to end of July 2018. After playing a tournament, I pulled my right quad.

I currently still compete but I am also a professional coach and most recently I was one of the main hitting partners for the US Open.

I panicked because I was 4 weeks away from going to the US Open so I finally decided to get the worms.

In September 2017, I experience a severe groin pull. I tried resting it, strength program and everything else possible and it never quite got back to 100%.

The body also goes through a reset process with each dose. This is why we see improvement with every application.

My son got mono in 11th grade. He had lived a very natural organic lifestyle and had no health problems. His immune system developed a very strong response to mono which became life threatening.

However the Vikings were described by both Persian and Roman historians as extreemly healthy and powerful.

So those two pieces of the puzzle didn't fit. One of them was wrong. Either worms made you sick or they made you strong.

Healthy Vikings with Worms? A Persian writer a thousand years ago wrote about how disgusting the Vikings were in their behavior. They would basically share a big bowl of water and bathe, blow their nose, drink, etc., all from the same bowl.

Bacteria normally lives in the brain. When you create an inflammatory response to that bacteria then you have complaints.

The Vikings did not fear illnesses because of their very strong immune systems. This was the same immune system that allowed them to go around the world as invaders and traders.

Bacteria is everywhere...chronic inflammation = over reacting.

85

Interestingly the ancient writer would also write about how beautiful, tall, healthy and vigorous the Viking people were.

Hookworms immediately start working to restore balance to the immune system.

The human body was shaped and created by the interactions with worms.

Hookworms have had a profound influence on the shape of our body.

112


Even if we eliminate all of the immune system stimulants that we can in our environment....that does not solve the Viking immune situation.

How do we get hookworms in nature? Hookworms are good for children. In nature, human-beings get their hookworms around six months old. Children are born to mothers with hookworms.

Eventually the Viking immune system finds something new to attack... like mono.

Studies and a simple look at where chronic inflammation exists show us that children born to mothers with hookworms do not develop chronic inflammation and reactions.

Sometimes people ask how we know their hookworms will go into the skin. Your hookworm is just as happy to have you as you are to have it :)

Without you that hookworm will die in the vial...and millions of years of evolution, inspiration and creation will come to an end. There are other hookworms, this is true. But this is your hookworm and it will only become more "yours" as time goes on. It will come to know your chemistry and know and modify your reactions to various substances that caused you inflammation in the past.

Some of that information, about what goes wrong and can go

It is the experience of worms that teaches us what worms know ;)

Benefits of re-dosing Even when a person reaches their "set point" or ideal dose we find they can benefit from re-dosing. This is because every reintroduction of hookworms creates a healing stem cell surge. So if I do something to myself in the gym that seems to have gone a bit beyond my capacity then I will take a dose of

simple process...your symptoms and inflammation will start returning. At that point we figure out the best way to get back up to a good doseage.

If an herb for example was going to kill worms they would have died off a long time ago. Remember to survive sometimes ancient humans had to eat some fairly unpleasant things, much more toxic than what we have in our environment now!

The reasurring thing is that this change from having worms to not having worms is usually very clear to both us and the human ;)

all opted to keep hookworms. They felt so much freedom from being able to eat a food that previously gave them severe reactions.

The Australian Hookworm Study Recently, a study was done in Australia where 12 people with a gluten reactions were given hookworms to resolve their chronic inflammation. All of the participants had their reaction to gluten resolved.

For all we know some, most, or maybe all people require hookworms to properly digest grains. We know for sure that at least those people diagnosed with Gluten reaction do.

At the end of the study, none of the study subjects allowed their hookworms to be killed off; they

137


Calming Effect Hookworms have the ability to change and control many of the immune system and hormonal system regulating compounds. There’s a lot of these immunomodulatory chemicals listed in the references at the end of the booklet. The most important thing to know is that hookworms can release a chemical that looks exactly like the anti-inflammatory hormone prednisone.

138


The difference is that the hookworms release the chemicals molecule by molecule. One at a time, unlike drugs. They give you just the inflammation control that you need without the side effects of drugs. Hookworms also organize the bacteria in the intestines. If they see a bacteria they don't like in the intestine then they will cause the immune system to eliminate that bacteria.

139


As you would expect the rate of juvenile arthritis...

is higher in blonde haired blue eyed kids.

More Viking genes equals more chronic inflammation

140


If they see a bacteria they like then they will encourage the growth of that bacteria. By organizing the bacteria hookworms take unnecessary stress off of the immune system.

realize that bacteria are everywhere in the body. Which makes sense...since bacteria can live in volcanic vents and deep ocean trenches. So when a woman has unexplained interstitial cystitis and has to pee all of the time it is because this bacteria is irritating her bladder.

Because of this the immune system gets a new stability and stops over reacting to every stimulant.

Eosinophils and Abnormal cell

We used to think that there were parts of the body that were sterile and had no bacteria. Now we

growth Eosinophils are the white blood cells that are elevated by worms.

Reactions and swollen sinuses cause mouth breathing.

This removes the tongue support from the palette.

This causes narrow palette and crowded teeth, etc. 142


Tumor activated eosinophils (TATE) are an independent factor for good abnormal cell growth prognosis.

Eosinophils cause abnormal cell growth rejection by normalizing vessels and enhancing the infiltration of immune cells. (Carretero 2015)

Inverse association between eosinophil count and abnormal cell growth. This means the more eosinophils makes less abnormal cell growth risk. (PMC3175810).

Eosinophils infiltrate tumors and are one of the body’s first lines of abnormal cell growth defense. (Cormier)

So the goal is to get the eosinophils up and worms do that.

Activated eosinophils are essential for tumor rejection.

143


Brain Inflammation Also when people get inflammatory scar tissue on their brain called amyloid plaques, that is also an inflammatory reaction to the body aggressively attacking the normal bacteria in the brain. This attack leads to complaints that we call Alzheimer's or dementia and other brain illnesss. Developmental Delay Obviously the causes of

144


autism are a very controversial subject. What we can at a minimum say the state of chronic inflammation should be moderated by Hookworms. Actually it was a person with autism years ago that actually started me thinking about the counter inflammatory affect of worms. The father of the autistic boy came into me one visit and said that he had taken his son on a walk through the woods. Both of the had come back with a ton a chiggers.

145


Chiggers are a flea like animal that burrows under the skin and is extremely itchy. The boy came back with chiggers up and down his legs. When they woke up the morning after the hike the man was shocked that his son was very functional and that his autism complaints had greatly diminished. These complaints gradually reappeared as the chiggers resolved. The man came in convinced that this temporary

have is that they increase the protective mucus layer of the intestine.

He told me that story ten years ago and I never forgot it, but never had an approach that I could apply to the situation until I learned about hookworms and helminthic approach.

This extra protective layer prevents food proteins from activating the immune system. This prevents the foods from creating antibodies which is another way of saying that it food reactions.

Increasing the protective gel of the guts.

The immune system has the default setting that says that if in doubt about whether a protein is a friend or a foe then knock it out.

Hookworms and other human worm species have been around for millions of years..

They know how to get along with humans.

In fact they had a big hand in designing the body.

Your body is designed for hookworms. 148


Just resolving food reactions alone would be enough to take tremendous stress off of the immune system.

If blueberries only come out for a week, then it makes sense to consume as much as possible. We put people in a craving state when we make them eliminate their food.

But this is just one small part of what worms do. I resolved many inflammation situations with the elimination of food reactions, but there are a few downsides to that approach. When we avoid a food, we tell our body that this food is rare and therefore we should binge and eat a lot of it when it is available.

Another problem with elimination diets is that it creates a feeling of separateness from others. Eating at a special lunch table, or not participating completely in holiday meals can create a feeling of isolation.

149


Remember, one of the ways that various groups of people separate themselves is by dietary restrictions.

There can be some exciting times on the worms with periods of feeling really well.

The last and important point about food reactions is that restricting a food group may create a nutritional deficiency.

But mostly what we recommend is to set is and forget it.

Of course, if the only option was eating your food reaction or having complaints, then you need to stop the food reaction.

Let the worms work in the background and simply live your life.

Hookworms give us the option of keeping all of the foods, but changing the bodies reactions to the foods. One of the ways the body does this is by raising the mucus level in the intestine.

parasite depletes the body, a symbiotic organism works with you for the mutual benefit of both organisms. Every mammal has a hookworm population, every primate has a hookworm a population, and every human-being, up to a few generations ago, had a hookworm population. Under inflammatory states hookworms release a chemical that works exactly like prednisone.

Just like a high tide keeps the boats from hitting the rocks, increasing the mucus level in the intestine stops the reaction food protein from triggering the immune system. Hookworms are more like a symbiotic organism. Where a

Often conditions are chronic because inflammation prevents the healing process.

If you can turn off inflammation you raise testosterone and growth hormone.

These two hormones are known for healing. 153


However, unlike the massive applications of drugs that create side effects, hookworms release anti-inflammatory chemicals molecule by molecule. The worms rely on you to be healthy so they can make their eggs. If you are not well, are sick, or are not alive those worms are gone from the face of the earth. Here is a reaction to

When you look at letters and pictures on the old interwebs about hookworms; you are seeing wolf worm reactions.

This is why it is so important to know exactly what worms you are getting. All hookworms look the same under the microscope, but there are two major species.

It doesn’t make sense to use a worm that you do not know what it is or where it came from. I will never understand why people will use worms that do not have a DNA linage analysis. And even if you know you are getting the right species of worm, it is important to know whether you are getting the aggressive worm or the gentle worm. The gentle

We call them the bad one the wolf worm (ancylostoma duodenale) and the good one the dog worm (necator americanus). Just like wolves and dogs, they might look the same as puppies, but the behavior they show when they grow up is very different.

157


worm we call NA457 after its genetic code. Just like getting a pet for your home, you want the breed that is most compatible with humans and domesticated to behave well and benefit your system, and not turn around to bite you. When you do your research, just remember that most aggravations are from people who do not correctly identify the worms they are working with, and therefore end up using the wrong worms.

158


It is very interesting to see how each person reacts to an application of worms.

The Elimination of Anxiety One common reaction reaction to the hookworms is a decrease of anxiety. It is more than the just the sensation that someone would get if they took a sedative. For some people it is the complete elimination of any sensation of anxiety and a complete sense of calm for the first time in their life.

It is almost as if each person’s situation is like the layers of cake. In some situations, people will feel an emotional change first. Most commonly what is described is the elimination of anxiety, but there are a fair number of situations that come in and talk about how their physical healing was accelerated.

I experienced this myself. Over the years I had been getting more and more inflammatory and that

159


had made my anxiety increase. It had gotten to the point where if I received a letter that was even addressed in a way that looked like it would be work or paperwork then could trigger stress for days. After I took the worms I felt a profound sense of calm. It was not as if I did not recognize the challenges in my life, it was just that I could not generate a sense of anxiety about the situations. It was a sense of calm I had not experienced since childhood.

160


I later learned that this anxiety was caused by chemicals in the body called cytokines. Cytokines are the inflammation signals that your body uses to activate the immune system. There are some drugs that decrease cytokines but the only thing that does it without dangerous side effects that we know scientifically is hookworm approach. It is so important to control

161


anxiety because anxiety turns off your brain. When you have a feeling of anxiety that is a part of the brain called the amygdala being activated. The amygdala is a left over part of our brain from the dinosaur age. When that part is activated we become the little animal whose best strategy for survival was to freeze. If there is no immediate danger you should never have the experience of anxiety. A little

162


anxiety is exactly like having a little knee pain. There is no level that is normal. The body triggers the experience of anxiety by producing cortisol and adrenaline. The signal to produce these hormones comes from the pituitary gland. Hookworms directly stop the production of adrenaline and cortisol since these can be considered immune signals. If you think about adrenaline it rises when there is some kind of

163


physical danger. Today this high adrenaline gets activated in all kinds of situations that are not acute danger. One of the most common experiences with hookworm approach, sometimes immediately is a decrease of anxiety. I can tell you that my anxiety levels when from either extreemely high to non-existant.

164


Injury When I didinflammatory, and injured myself in the gym, I knew I was in for six months of babying the injury. Not only do I not get those injuries any more, but if I do, then I know I just need a good night of sleep and I will be recovered. It is the strangest feeling, and I know it is probably something that needs to be experienced in order to be understood.

165


Sometimes the idea of hookworms seems strange to people. Yet, these same people would not think twice if they needed a titanium rod to heal a fracture, or if they needed to take a probiotic after an antibiotics. Hookworm populations are common in other mammal and primate species like monkeys and gorillas. Hookworms are normal, hookworm eliminationis not.

166


In fact, in primates the presence of hookworms allows for and facilitates a higher testosterone level; it is one of the ways that hookworms help us. In humans, hookworms were common until a few generations ago. We have done several things in modern society that eliminate the chance of getting hookworms. The highest concentrations of hookworms are found in

ancient Viking camp sites. These people had a powerful immune system but also a powerful organ for stopping the immune system. That powerful organ is called hookworms.

I put it on my foot because I think it more naturally mimics how the hookworms are

If you have been trying to support yourself or get supported for methylation issues you know what I am talking about. Methylation is basically how quickly your body processes

170


vitamins to the active form in you body. What is important to recognize about genes that decrease methylation (activation) is that these are nordic ice age genes. And these are not mutations these are genetic selections. In other words the same genes that gave you an MTHFR mutation are the genes that are looking for and expecting hookworms in you body.

171


Gentle Hookworms Gentle worming is done with one worm per week, this way every person no matter what their sensitivities are can benefit from the anti-inflammatory effects of hookworms. We can look for more more subtle signs of reaction to the hookworms than just the itching that can take place on the foot. Even one worm can have a deep effect on the human organism and is definitely something that can

Still, I was severely reaction to dust, so much so that cleaning the house for even 5 minutes would cause me to experience days of reaction complaints… sneezing, congestion, and headaches.

I honestly had no idea that this approach would help this condition, if fact the first people with elhers-danlos symptom that saw improvement were actually using hookworms for other problems.

Joint hypermobility One of the most remarkable and satisfying reactions to hookworm approach has been in those person with Joint hypermobility. This is a condition where the collagen or connective tissue of the body is too loose and flexible. Because of this these people get a lot of excessive movement of the joints. This causes a lot of inflammation in their body and leads to a lot of chronic pain.

It was them who told me that their joints and pain had greatly improved. Gatekeeper Action of Worms For years I have helped people manage their health by removing

185


186


the hidden food reactions through IgG and IgA food reaction testing. This counts the number of antibodies you make to a food.

I knew there were steps in the middle between...the antibody which was being created to catch the food protein and the eventual inflammatory complaints...but I had no idea of how to control those middle steps and had never heard of them being controlled unless it was a drug like prednisone.

The only option that I had for people at that time if they tested high to a food was to give up the foods that tested high. This would at least keep the antibodies in the blood from finding the food protein they were looking for. At least by stopping this beginning step we would stop the end step which was the inflammatory symptom.

In my reading I found that naive tribes with worms had a much higher amount of antibodies to various substances in their

including foods without having the inflammatory effects at the end.

They had more antibodies but did not have the expected allergic reactions. They produced more antibodies in their blood to proteins in the environment, but they had less inflammation and complaints.

Hookworms are the gate keeper to our inflammatory reactions. The hookworms are very smart about when to allow an inflammatory reactions and when to block them. The hookworms stop inflammatory reactions to foods and the environment and this makes these native peoples much less allergic.

It turns out that hookworms control the middle step of the inflammatory process. With hookworms you can make antibodies to the environment

on in their life. Pregnant women would have worms and that would make sure that the baby was not reactive to foods when it was born.

Babies and Hookworms & Pregnancy In nature, the hookworms are transmitted when night soil is used to fertilize crops. The hookworms mature in the soil and then when people walk in the soil to tend the crops, they get infected with hookworms.

When pregnant and breastfeeding moms have hookworms, it prevents reactions in their children.

This cycle would continue for quite a few of years. Babies would get worms by 6 months old so that they were resistant to reactions and inflammation early

Not having a hookworm causes an increase in infections. (mpairwe)

applications does not compare to ancient exposure. Hookworms are proven to make children less reactive to the enviornment. When children are less reactive, they are also less likely to experience mouth breathing, which leads to better palate formation from tongue pressure.

Having hookworms prevents excessive reactions to common infections. These include in childhood infections and illnesses such as mononucleosis. If we imagine these Viking women tending crops and walking daily through soil fertilized with poo then we see that even our most frequent

When the tongue exerts proper pressure, the palate widens, allowing accommodation of teeth, and less need for braces.

193


The body seems to be designed as the perfect hookworm carrying machine.

Just the complexity of the entry process shows that humans have had a long relationship with hookworms.

This door is only open to our special symbiotic friends. 194


How do the worms get in?

Avoiding braces prevents nerve root trauma and tooth loss. The early introduction of hookworms can induce a virtuous good health cycle.

The worms, when they make contact with the skin, create a keratin tube that allows them to move through skin and into the circulation. That is the part that itches.

The important point here is that hookworms are easy to get, when people go to study gorillas in nature they often come back carrying gorilla hookworm. The hookworms are that east to get in nature.

Through the circulation they make contact with the lung tissue and work their way through to the inside of the lung. Then, the wave motion of the cilia carry the larva up the trachea

195


until they hit the epiglottis at the top of the windpipe. That "flip-flop" cover (epiglottis) is designed perfectly for the transmission of worms to the esophagus or the food pipe. They go right down the intestine until they hit the right environment for them. That environment is a small subsection of the small intestine. They can't live anywhere else in the body.

do not get better with this approach.

Hookworms are symbiotic organisms that are only healthy if you are healthy. So they want things to go well for you and for your body. They are alive and feeling and sensing, and can respond to changes as needed to balance their environment, your body. I don't know of any other approach that can rival this aspect of worm therapy. That the worms

and the width of a human hair, and they will adapt and change to control your inflammation. When they learn that gluten makes you inflammatory they will change the bacteria in your intestine and release a little bit of anti-inflammatory hormone when you eat gluten. You become antifragile to gluten.

Hookworms want to pull your body into balance, not because they care about you. Hookworms that took care of their hosts in the past were the ones most likely to be passed on to the next generation. They are alive, they grow to about half and inch long

maybe all of us, reguire hookworms to properly digest grains.

In the Australian hookworm study they slowly increased the amount of gluten that they were giving to people and the hookworms learned how to control that reaction.

Can it really be a bad thing that our immune system is too strong? The most successful immune system in human history was from a small tribe of Vikings. We sometime think of ourselves as German, Irish, English, etc.,

There is no doubt that the ability to eat grains provided a major advantage in preventing starvation and providing and alternative source of calories. It is also true that some of us,

In the United States, we are the product of these people that crossed the ocean and came to America. Your chronic inflammation is the remnant of Viking DNA that allowed these people be the most geographically spread in history, you just forgot your worms! If you're going to have a powerful engine you need to have powerful brakes.

inflammation that we have is hookworms. If a gorilla can not fit into a business suit that is not a gorilla problem. If our human bodies need hookworms and don't have them that is not a pathology, that is an imbalance. And this is what hookworms helped me realize: the problem is there is no problem. Chronic inflammation is like saying the immune system is too strong. Can

that really be a problem? This is like saying that a car is too fast.

How can this be anything but nonsense? A powerful engine is never a problem and neither is a powerful immune system.

Would you really fix a car engine if someone came to you and said, “My car’s engine is really powerful and fast and if I put the pedal down it goes past the other cars.”?

Now if this car has no brakes do you then say it's a problem of the engine? Of course not. So if we have removed the brakes from the car with the most powerful engine ever can you really be surprised we have problems?

Well isn’t that the same thing we are saying about highly inflammatory chronic inflammation persons? Your immune system is too good, too successful, too inflammatory?

This is why all of us inflammatory people that end up living such compromised lives. I

myself was gluten, egg, dairy, nightshade, salicylate, fructose, citrus, yeast and shellfish free for almost ten years. Yes it did help control my complaints, but driving only on straight road with no curves. It was also incredibly boring and at some level depressing and defeating.

Plus, if I did pull a muscle or a tendon then it would take me months to heal. Now, since I have had my worms for three years, I work out twice a day at least six days a week. Most exciting though is if I do go a little too hard and pull a muscle or tendon then all that I need is a good night’s sleep and it is better in the morning.

I remember I used to go to the gym one day and then my body with would be super stiff for weeks. I love to workout and this made it miserable.

214


like a person that is naturally in the yellow zone.

The normal viking immune system is in the "red zone" When Vikings have this highly aggressive auto-immune genetic system nothing will correct the imbalance because there is no imbalance. A perfectly tuned Viking immunes system is not calm and in the green zone. It is active and in the yellow zone getting ready to go into the red zone.

Let’s say I have a guy come in with three years of large intestine inflammation since antibiotics. If he did not have inflammation before and it does not run in the family this is not a big deal. This would be an easy green zone situation. If this person takes somethings simple like homeopathy, some probiotics, some herbs, they should self correct and get better.

So we can’t support the person that is naturally in the green zone

215


that scenario...my immune system made me miserable.

Compare that to me and my family, both my mom and dad had stomach issues and all of my siblings have been diagnosed with chronic inflammation and autoimmune disease. Then I had severe ulcerative colitis. I am a yellow zone situation that went into the red.

When we look at the set of genes that make for higher inflammation and higher risk of autoimmuiny I have many of them. I even have many of the neanderthal genese known for increasing the risk for chronic inflammation.

If we have another plague epidemic then my system will be the one that survives because it is aggressive. However, short of

The only thing that will get me into the green, no-inflammation zone is the counter balancing anti-inflammatory action of

216


hookworms. Hookworms never sleep, they are constantly looking for issues that would interfere with their successful egg productions. (Their eggs are tiny microscopic and not transmittable to another person without a life cycle in the soil.)

This is an important part of the hookworm journey. From the moment they touch the skin they are starting get programed to match the needs of your body. Day 3-5 circulating worms pass through the blood and stick to the lung tissue. Then they squeeze their way through to the inside of lungs.

Worm Journey and Settlement Day 1-3 worms pass through the skin and enter the blood. This process will include itching and redness.

The wave like action of the cilia or hairs of the lung bring the worms up to the top of the trachea or wind pipe.

217


During the time and for the weeks that follow the body will be adapting constantly to the presence of worms. Remember that your body should have had worms at six months old so there is an adaptation phase.

Once they get up to the top of the wind pipe they are transferred from the wind pipe to the esophagus by the epiglottis or little lid at the top of the pipes. Interestingly the epiglottis is perfectly designed to transfer the worms.

The adaptation phase, it is happens at all, usually peaks at week six to week eight. This could include some loose stools or a mild tummy ache. There may be other times where complaints wax and wane.

From week 2-3 and the hookworms settle in one small six inch section of the small intestine. This is where they can live for fifteen years or longer.

218


You may get a weird symptom here and there. Maybe a left ear pain and then maybe a right toe pain.

Women that have hookworms have much less reaction children. For those of us that have chronic inflammation in our family we know that a less reaction kid is a less chronic inflammation child. If you know anything about having a child with chronic inflammation the importance of this can not be emphasized enough.

Just trust that you and your new friends will figure out the best way to keep your inflammation low together. Pregnancy and Hookworms One of the places we see that hookworms can teach the body immune system tolerance is with pregnancy.

It is an understatement to say that this situation is torture for the child and the parents.

219


There is no problem taking hookworms or having hookworms while breastfeeding that I have seen. In fact there is every reason to suspect that the baby receives much less stress hormones when the mother has a proper population of hookworms in her system in addition to a much better balance of hormones including growth hormone.

Hookworms are the only approach shown to decrease reactions and therefore chronic inflammation in the next generation. Sometimes the mother's chronic inflammation starts at pregnancy. This is due to an effect called chimerism where the mother adapts some of the child's DNA and then starts getting immune to that DNA and creating chronic inflammation in herself.

his entire clan or all people had Tick borne bacteria at that time. Also a few years ago the researchers found a tick that had been preserved in amber from fifty million years ago.

Tick borne bacteria and Hookworms A similar chronic inflammation reaction happens with the Tick borne bacteria bacteria. The problem is not the bacteria itself. The Tick borne bacteria bacteria has been around for a long time. When they defrosted the iceman they found from five thousand years ago they found that he had Tick borne bacteria.

This tick from millions of years ago also had Tick borne bacteria. Tick borne bacteria is not new, even the dinosaurs had it. What is new is human beings without hookworms. This is the new experiment. And what have we seen from this experiment? We

examine the monkey's organs in detail they still find Tick borne bacteria. But that is ok because it is not the Tick borne bacteria bacteria that is the problem, it is the body's over-reaction the that bacteria.

Tick borne bacteria bacteria cannot be killed when it is in the body.

If we leave it alone it does not cause a problem. It is because of our chronic inflammatory fight that generate the destructive changes that cause illness. It is what we do to ourselves that causes the problems.

They did a study a few years ago and found that when monkeys have Tick borne bacteria no matter how long the put them on antibiotics and what kind of antibiotic they have when they

222


What is new for the body is to have an immune system that is constantly attacking the mono virus and therefore keeping the vagus nerve in an inflammatory state. I have always found it interesting to note that in order for the mono virus to reproduce it requires the immune system to attack it. Without the immune system reaction it can not reproduce.

Mono Virus and Chronic Fatigue It is the same story in the situation of chronic fatigue, mono, and chronic Epstein-Barr syndrome. The mono virus is a herpes virus that lives normally in the vagus nerve that travels throughout our body. This is the nerve that makes us feel sick when we have the flu. The mono virus is a herpes virus that has its normal home in the vagus nerve and has for ages.

Basically people with chronic fatigue and chronic Epstein-Barr

223


have had a situation of the flu for years or decades. Hookworms with their immunoregulatory and anti-inflammatory power have the ability to restore the immune tolerance that we should have to the mono virus.

When the mice had active hookworm infections they were much less likely to reject the skin grafts. This has tremendous implications for anyone that might be having inflammation as a result of any kind of foreign substance in their body.

Transplant Rejection

This includes breast implants, titanium rods and pins, dental implants, hernia grafts and other surgical or cosmetic substance.

Hookworms have been studied with preventing rejection of transplants. Mice were given skin grafts with and without the normal mouse hookworm.

Obviously hookworms should also be used with an actual

224


human organ transplant. Given the devastating results of rejecting an organ everything should be done to create a tolerant and accepting immune system.

when I was eighteen years old. I have complete trust in my body again. I understand it was the whole chronic inflammation nonsense that kept my mind locked up for years. Not only does my body work again but my brain functions at a higher level then ever before. My strength of concentration is far beyond anything I could have imagined.

same response in both male and female persons. I see that the hormones work better and in a lower application when there is a good hookworm population in the gut. Sometimes women that have been on hormonal approach actually go off the hormones when the hookworms get established because they don't need them.

The largest gorilla in the tribe will have the most hookworms and highest testosterone. It seems that the hookworms allow and encourage higher testosterone levels. Probably just another hookworm success strategy. I have seen the

and bioidentical testosterone supplementation without side effects.

Then in nature children would normally have their own hookworm population by six months. It does not matter when hookworms are given to the moms. Hookworms were constantly being acquired in pregnancy in human past.

They conducted a study where they killed off the hookworms of pregnant moms and they found out the kids came out much more inflammatory and therefore prone to chronic inflammation. There is no way I would have another baby without the mom having hookworms. To be pregnant without worms if you have yellow zone DNA is just asking for problems.

Side effects from meds. One of the reasons for my chronic anxiety was a reaction to the antibiotic ciprofloxacin that I took during my years in school.

227


One of the reactions to this antibiotics is a syndrome that is called "being floxed".

I had some version of this anxiety until my first application of hookworms at which point the low level of anxiety in my nervous system stopped. I do not know about other chronic drug reactions. But given my experience it may be worth a try.

Like most drugs cipro is fine for most people and completely toxic if you have the wrong genes. I had the wrong genes for this drug. I never remember feeling anxiety for a single day in my life before my reaction. After a few applications of the cipro, which by the way felt terrific when I was on it, and I had severe anxiety.

When you see extreme reactions pictures online that is because someone got the wolf worm. Wolfs are not domesticated and neither are wolf worms. You want the dog worm and even within the dog family there are pitbull worms and poodle worms, you want the poodle worms.

The most important part of doing worms is getting the right worm. Microscopically worms are indistinguishable, and there are two worms that look a lot alike, we call them the wolf worm and the dog worm.

control the reaction reaction was to control the number of soldiers.

This is because hookworms are able to provide biochemical gatekeeper actions and provide control on the reactivity to the reactions. Now we have a bigger army but a more powerful general who is in charge.

By using hookworms, we put a new general in charge of when to declare war on a food. Hookworms have been well trained on how to determine which proteins to react to and they are experts in making that decision. That fine line between reaction and lack of reaction is the difference between tolerating foods and creating a chronic and inflammatory reaction to foods.

The number of soldiers equals the number of antibodies that we may make to a food. Before worms the only way we could

Large intestine inflammation and small intestine inflammation are

240


obviously perfect candidates for hookworm approach. Primarily because hookworms increase the mucus protection of the intestinal lining.

And yet the bacteria are constantly being changed. This is because the intestine without hookworms is like an open wound. Any bacteria has the possibility of becoming a pathogen in that situation. The best option is to protect the gut with hookworms.

Large and small intestine inflammation are something I have a lot of experience. Everyone is my family has some type of severe digestive disorder.

The bacteria is not the issue. Every bacteria that can become pathologic and inflammatory in the wrong environment is an intestine without hookworms.

As I have followed the research in these issues I am seen that bacteria are constantly to blame.

241


feet would get on the ground. It would be when the mother was working with the crops fertilized by night soil aka human manure.

In short the issues we have with our intestines and stomach are simply the result of bacteria affected by a deficency of hookworms and the control that the hookworm signals provide.

Fertilizing soil makes a tremendous difference for the yield of grains. We are talking about several times increase in yield of crops. Just the recorded history of grains is twentyfive thousand years. And that is the recorded history of farming. The unrecorded history may go back much farther.

Hookworm application The worms are applied to the skin because that is the way that that they get acquired in nature. In ancient cultures the children would get worms as soon as their

242


Thousands of years is a long time. If that does not seem like a long time just remember that all of the differences that we see in dog are based on ten thousand years of selective breeding. All of the difference between a great dane and chihuahua are only due to ten thousand years of selecting for traits.

The hookworms also got selected for their best traits to support humans. They required a part of their life cycle in the soil to properly grow and they were constantly reintroduced by the crop fertilization process. So for quite a few of years the reintroduction cycle of the hookworm was continued. With people benefitting from hookworms and hookworms benefitting from people.

In the years of our human existance some of us had genes that became dependant on hookworms as something like an anti-inflammatory organ.

How do you take hookworms? The worms are microscopic when they are applied. You can’t see anything in the small vial the worms come in. There is some water and a small pipet to apply the worms to a small bandaid.

We have found it to both most effective and most comfortable to use one worm per week. At least up to 20 worms.

When the hookworms are on the skin they build a small keratin tube to work their way into the skin. This creates a little itching, but this should not be suppressed because this itching and the scratching that accompanies it is

Once at the top of the windpipe they hit the little flip-flop at the top of the lung and the food pipe. It is so interesting to see that the flip-flop epiglottis is basically perfectly designed to transfer the hookworms from the

I was still aware of the various challenges in my life. But I could not generate a stress response to those issues. This was the first time I could recall since being a child that I felt no stress.

The Hookworm High

This decrease in stress was a sign that inflammatory chemicals had decreased in my body and in my brain. Along with this decrease in stress was an amazing spike in my energy. I went to clean my back room that had not been organized in years. I did the

Then I decided it was time to change the color of my office...I never painted because I have never had the extra energy. But I painted and then I realized I needed a new desk.

It was amazingly easy to decide what needed to go and what needed to stay. I got rid of eight large garbage bags of supplies and supplements that I no longer wanted.

And it went like that from that point forward. All of the things that I wanted to do but never had the extra energy now seemed very doable. This has continued at various levels since I took my first application of hookworms.

I cut the amount of shelving space in half and got rid of the shelves I didn't need. I made my storage room manageable, sane, and pleasant. I had been needing to do this for ten years!

And even with all of my natural tools it was a constant effort to keep the pigs in the pen and keep the complaints from returning. Since they have all been hookwormed, I don’t hear the occasional complaints that I used to hear.

So much of homeopathy and herbs is fine tuning...that for people with Viking immune systems is like fiddling while Rome burns. This was most certainly a lot of the times that I spent trying to resolve my own complaints with natural..

So we can try different strategies to perfectly manage this car with three tires, or we can put the fourth tire on. Hookworms are the fourth tire on the car for people that are

One thing we do know about abnormal cell growth and the immune system is that white blood cells are our body's defense system. Our body makes a white blood cell called eosinophils. We also know that the chance of getting abnormal cell growth or of abnormal cell growth returning decreases the more eosinophils you have.

they create that barrier that requires something more than the antibody and protein link to get to the inflammation stage.

254


Again, more eosinophils equals less abnormal cell growth. Hookworms raise the eosinophil levels. Hookworms raise the white blood cell that protects you from abnormal cell growth.

emotion like anxiety or depression first improve, and then an old injury, and then we see chronic inflammation complaints start resolving, and then we can see an environment in food reactions.

The great thing is that this approach can be used with all of all conventional medicines.

I know for myself at some point to manage my inflammation I needed to avoid the following foods: gluten, egg, dairy, nightshades, salicylates, fructose, and an ever increasing sensitivity to nuts.

to to any food, how can that be a normal function? Why would we be reactive to anything in the environment, including pollen, bacteria, and molds? The healthy immune system is tolerant of all but the most extreme attacks on our system.

This morning after three years on worms I had a breakfast of egg and cheese omelet with toast buttered with jelly. Then orange juice and coffee with delicious milk. This combination of food is actually known as food. I like food. I don’t like "not food". There is no reason to be reactive

Any attack on a protein we should be tolerating distracts our immune system from the job that is should be doing to watch our system for real problems.

Hookworms teach our body to chill out and stop attacking random proteins and ourself.

especially is that the ability to have a muscle pump that was missing for decades when I was inflammatory.

I am so happy to have energy again and to be able to do the things that I want to do. Most days I work out hard twice per day. And it is rare that I miss a day but even more importantly for me it is rare that I want to miss a day.

Hookworms help hormone balance Studies have shown that the biggest gorilla in the troop has both the most worms and the highest levels of testosterone. It seems as if the presence of hookworms has an effect on the endocrine and hormonal systems of the body such that it allows a

everyone however. I know that many people have told me their sex drive increased with hookworms and I have experienced that also.

We don’t know why the worms do this we can only guess that having a higher level of worms and therefore a higher hormone level was an advantage at some point.

If you don’t have hookworms you may be surprised to know that the biggest concern that people express with their hookworms is not having them but the fear of killing them off. I do not think that you need to be concerned about that.

Most people that I have seen tell me that their sex drive has increased after worms… so I have to guess that everyone using the hookworms have hormone levels that are going up or most

Apparently us and gorillas share similar hookworms. Their worms can live in us and our worms can live in them. Gorillas eat bamboo shoots that produce cyanide in the gut, toxin for humans…and even that does not kill hookworms.

With worms you see white blood cells called eosinophils. This is the anti-abnormal cell growth white blood cell which is another advantage of worms. However I have experimented with all of the worm killers and my eosinophils stay nice and high. If we do want to kill them off the worm drug abendazole works very quickly (we make good poisons) and the first capsule 99% of the worms are not alive and the next capsule 99.99%, etc.

I have experimented on my family with many substances that are supposed to kill worms and none of it does. This includes herbs like wormwood which you think would have an effect.

How to support the worm process More interestingly there are people that want to know what to do to support their hookworms.

In life when people ask me what they need to do in order to help the hookworms get rid of all their complaints I just tell them that all they need to do is to keep treading water.

To them I say: listen to your worms. The worms are going to start making course corrections in your health, and the more you can pay attention to them and follow the directions the more directly progress with come. As the system remodels to a

The highest rate of both abnormal cell growth and chronic inflammation occur in first world countries with no worms. The highest rates of colon abnormal cell growth is in Norway which is a country where Viking people do not have worms.

Hookworms are alive! They want to live and survive and pass on their genes to their offspring. They can feel, perceive and change for their own survival.

The highest rate of all these illnesses are in Viking, Anglo

of ageing.

Because the protective layer of the small intestine is so important for absorption, hookworms can pay a major role in people that can't absorb nutrients.

Many of the degenerative conditions associated with ageing are due to high levels of cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone, and without hookworms some of us have cortisol levels that stay high.

271


High levels of cortisol block growth hormone and testosterone. That is a receipe for degenerative bone disease. Hookworms can help correct these problems.

However the fundamental problem is that the body gets locked in a state of producing hormones associated with stress, cortisol and adrenaline. This is like keeping the accelerator of your care pushed to the floor on maximum all the time. Just like this would be destructive for your car, Chronic stress is destructive for your body.

Chronic Stress and Hookworms More and more health conditions are being linked to chronic stress. Chronic stress syndrome can be triggered bypass a long series of stresses or by an acute stress incident or period of stress.

Hookworms, because they are trying to optimize the condition of your body for themselves,

272


have an amazing ability to rebalance these stress hormones. I would not think of trying to help Chronic stress without hookworms.

Hookworm is the mother worm I call hookworm the mother worm. Hookworms determine our reactions to all other worms, bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms. Even if we were to use another worm like whip worms for large intestine inflammation it is always best to start with hookworms.

When the body is in a chronic state of stress the hormone cortisol will be high. This blocks the body's use of both growth hormone and testosterone.

Hookworms can release chemicals signals that increase or decrease the inflammatory response to different microbes

In other words chronic stress prevents healing.

Now gorillas can eat a handful of bamboo bark that would literally kill us. The bark releases cyanide as it breaks down.

People start feeling so good that they don't want to do anything to interfere with the process. Luckily hookworms can live for decades.

So since this toxin does not kill the hookworms in the gorilla a fairly safe general statement is that if the substance does not kill you it is not likely to kill your hookworms.

We know this didn't happen, so your body did not learn to tolerate the environment.

Now your body had to be reeducated to not respond to every stressor with chronic inflammation.

The epiglottis carries the worms to the food pipe or esophagus. The worms travel down to where they live, which is one small six inch section in the small intestine that has the ideal environment for them.

They are distracting the immune system from attacking its own body. For some of us this is the first time every in our adult lives that we stop attacking ourselves. The cilia or hair of the lungs gently carries the hookworms up

There could be some complaints at this point that are easily controlled. 5.These complaints settle down from week seven to twelve.

our bodies are constantly attacking them. It is this battle created by our own body that is most of the problem. This is because our immune system is lacking the regulation provided by the mother worm, hookworms aka wormy.

Using drugs with these normal viral and bacterial residents of our body is not only ineffective but put our health at risk. There is a different way to support these problems. Keep in mind that a lot of the stress that is created by these bugs is because

If we step back and look at mother nature this makes sense. The body most at risk is the unbalanced body.

The body in this situation was able to regulate the inflammatory response to malaria because it had hookworms.

Another way of thinking about it is that your body wants to get everything. This way it can pick and choose how to react to any situation.

This is a lot different than the impression most of us have about what worms can do for us.

This is one of the reasons making sure that you are using the right worm by DNA testing is so important. We only want the poodle worm. That is to say we want the most domesticated worm, the worm that works best with our body.

Since hookworms address both of these risk factors, and because we see such improvement clinically, I have to conclude that we are changing the course of health for the better in the future. When people come in on this approach...and tell me how much better they feel, they can’t believe how long they lived without it (my feelings also) than I know that we have changed the course of health in the future for the better. :)

There are two scenarios that we know have bad consequences for the future. The first is the long term use of pharmaceutical drugs. The second is uncontrolled inflammation.

Additionally things I did and that were done to me changed me mentally and emotionally.

About me (Steve) I went right into the marine corps out of high school. While there I was given shots before a deployment.

I was discharged and came home... and things went from bad to worse.

I developed a peri-rectal fistula on my return to the US. This is basically a hole between you rectum and your skin.

Within a year I was diagnosed with ulcerative large intestine inflammation. My symptom included needing to go to the bathroom frequently, some time a few times per hour and this would be day and night.

They did a surgery on me that did not work... and left me with a lot of pain and suffering.

I still made it through college in three years. But could hardly do anything else.

If I did not do this then he thought I would countinue to get worse and my life would be in jeapordy.

Things kept getting worse in spite of tons usual drugs and all of the horrible side effects.

He really did help me...and I am grateful every day because in that moment...I realized I wanted to be alive in a whole body, or I was ok not being here anymore.

Finally I went to a specialist guy that I thought could help. After a brief exam he sat down across from me. He told me that he would eliminate my large intestine inflammation by cutting out my colon and putting me on drugs for life.

I tried some diet changes, homeopathy and herbs and stopped getting worse with a lot of effort. I even when to school for these things but was no better

293


when I finished than the four years previous when I started.

But eventually me and the people that came to me for help, began to teach each other. My best education has been the people I have seen. They began to teach me how to get inflammation down.

After I graduated I began to see some people and we would teach each other what we knew. It was tough, I was still exhausted from my own complaints. After seeing people, often I would have to lance my own fistula to relieve the pressure because it would fill with blood. I would do this with a razor blade and go back and keep working with people. Like I said, it was tough.

What I learned along the way allowed me to manage my complaints, but it was constant effort. It took me 20 years of learning everything I could about manage

294


inflammation to meet the most profound healer I had ever met. His name is "wormy the hookworm" and he did not just help me manage my complaints he gave me my life back.

Ten years ago my body would get extremely tight and painful. If I did any kind of workout it would trigger some kind of pain in my body.

I had always dreamed of reclaiming a true state of health. But of course I wondered if I would even find my answer.

It could be anywhere from the knee, to the shoulder, to severe neck pains. The neck pains would keep me up at night and many nights I couldn't sleep. But I loved working out. It was always one of my greatest pleasures.

So I just want to share a picture of me enjoying my life in a way that 10 years ago would have seemed completely unrealistic.

295


The day after the worms I woke up completely awake at 6am. It was just like a light switch went on. I went from asleep to awake with none of the usual grogginess.

made a note to myself that in spite of any obstacles I should continue to use the hookworms. I followed my own instruction...and what you just read summarizes that experience. :)

I woke up with a strong urge to get to the gym. That was about 5 years ago now and I go to the gym twice per day since then and I have only missed about ten days.

I feel no pain in my workouts now and at 58 feel like I am doing the best workouts I have ever done. I have definitely set my maximum of lifting records this year. It is amazing to feel my body heal and recover so quickly.

Over the years & into my twenties, I was diagnosed with psoriasis, chronic sinusitis, chronic fatigue, manic depression, anxiety, adjustment disorder, bipolar disorder, and all other types of mood disorders.

At age 26, after two years of Steve suggesting hookworm approach for me, I decided to stop being stubborn and trust. To say that was the best decision of my life is an understatement. I’ve gone through, and continue to go through, profound physical and mental shifts with this approach.

Every day I learn more and more about myself and take steps toward fulfilling my life purpose. I have more energy, drive, and motivation then I have ever had in 27 years. In my physical life I

It’s been 16 months since I began hookworm approach with Steve and I could sit here and write a novel about how this approach gave me my life back. The reality of the situation is just that - I have my life back. No more suffering.

Hookworm approach is like the electrical current which runs through my body to illuminate all working parts that have been sleeping...just waiting to be lit... An ancient symbiotic relationship between human and helminth, awakened to facilitate the healing of those who have the courage to walk this path.

I can’t possibly give all the credit to the worms. Steve is hands down the most caring, gracious, intuitive, intelligent healer I have ever been blessed to cross paths with. He is a real person-and understanding… kind and never

would be sore as if I'd injured it every month or two.

three days later I was absolutely fine as if nothing had happened. This went on for a few years.

I play basketball, tennis and weight train and I'm in good shape. Yet, I'd be standing on the tennis court and my right calf would be sore and I'd be out for three weeks.

I had tennis/golf elbow in both arms and over the years sought approaches (chiropractic, acupuncture, cupping, massage, supplements etc) so that I could play without having to take antiinflammatory and ice my elbow.

Soon after, my oblique would pull and I'd miss more time. One morning I woke up and could barely walk because my hip was sore and I hadn't injured it. By the next day I was on crutches and

A Jointatologist did extensive blood testing on me and with the exception of gluten reaction, I came back as "the picture of

307


health" except that I was miserable. My assessment? Fibromyalgia... pain that they can't explain.

My friend put me on protonix, but that pill bloated me so much that I felt as if I had a rubber tire around my midsection. So I stopped eating gluten and I cut down on the pills from once a day to half a pill twice a week. But then the "muscle pulls" began and people began to suspect that I have something chronic inflammation that they just can't identify.

I've known that I've been reaction to gluten since I was in my teens. Every time I ate a bagel, pasta or any wheat product I would cough continuously. By my forties I was a regular user of Tums and by 50 the Tums no longer worked because acid reflux had compromised the lining of my esophagus and I found out that I had Barrett's Esophagus.

A friend suggested I visit Steve and he had me do an IGG

308


assessment, which revealed that I was reaction to gluten... And dairy and eggs and nuts and pork and citrus and pineapple! All things that I enjoy. Steve suggested that I was a prime candidate for Hookworm Approach and explained in detail why this approach would work for someone reaction like me (as it had for the 150 persons for the past three years). "I AM NOT A RISK TAKER"

vigilant about not eating any of the foods I shouldn't have. That worked ! No muscle pulls ! But, my elbow was still a mess, even after two cortisone shots and I was not fun at mealtime. It became, "What can I eat?" at every meal with my wife, children or friends. I felt like a food leper. I read Steve's book, twice, and then attended the January seminar and listened to his persons testimonials. I emailed and texted him question after question as I

learned to trust him more and more and began with 5 worms in March eventually getting 20. I texted him during the process and he always responded promptly and guided me where necessary.

I asked him if anyone had ever asked him this many Hookworm questions and he politely replied with a smiley face, "no". I read about Helminthic Approach online. I spoke to persons in his waiting room.

In June I began to introduce gluten. I had my first slice of REAL pizza in a decade (NOT GF pizza, which with all due respect to Frischetta and other GF pizza producers, is not real pizza) and I noticed two things.

But, what really sealed it for me was his commitment to this approach and his devotion to getting me better. As I visited his office or spoke with him, I

#2- I had zero complaints.

overboard, I'll feel some abdominal discomfort, but never any reflux.

In the past, eating bread and tomato sauce and cheese was a disaster for me. Massive acid reflux. But I ate the slice and I waited for the discomfort that night and the next morning. Nothing. No complaints! I began to see how far I could go even though Steve told me to go slow.

I've had 14 slices of pizza since June and even two in one lunch without any complaints. While I won't give up GF pasta and GF bagels because I've found some excellent brands, I don't worry about sauces, soy sauce, flour used to coat chicken, chicken stock with gluten, cheese etc. I no longer have to micro-manage my meals.

Eight months later, I've learned that I can tolerate reasonable amounts of reactive foods without an issue. If I go

Also, last years endoscopy revealed that my Barrett's Esophagus had cleared up! Not only was my digestion improving after three months of Hookworm Approach, but my tennis elbow went away! I began to lift weights in the gym that I hadn't done in 20 years and am now able to do pulling exercises like lat pull downs and rows.

that was causing the increased strength. My weight on the vertical leg press went up 25 pounds and then 50 pounds per set! I did so well that the owner of the gym and his trainer went to Steve for Hookworms!! Before I decided to introduce hookworms I had a few friends that were very concerned. One is a friend who warned me that I would lose weight. Others simply thought I was crazy and were worried about how I would kill the worms when it didn't work.

At 61, I did five pull ups recently! I hadn't even been able to grip the bar in years! But it isn't just the healing of my arm

For the last five years I have been on an amazing journey, one I never expected.

In an effort to help my son with chronic inflammation I found out about hookworms and it has made a profound difference in our lives.

Before I had to micro-manage my entire life to stay in some kind of balance.

Now hookworms do that work for me, and I can just do what I want to do.

I have never felt this good and this booket is for you if you want to learn a bit about them.:) 324
