2010 in review & Happy New Year!

A very happy new year to everyone who reads my blog! I wish you all a 2011 free from pain and suffering. I dont consider myself to be a strong person, but those whom I’ve met who suffer from this awful disease are some of the strongest out there. But even the strongest need support sometimes. Please, lets all do a little extra this year to support those who need it, continue the search for a cure for IBD, and try to get more exposure for this very promising therapy. Even in my worst days, when I felt completely hopeless and deeply depressed, it was the support of my family and friends who kept me getting out of bed in the morning to face an uncertain day. Chin up everyone, and never give up hope. Peace and love to you all.

I started this blog to let people follow my experience with helminthic therapy, and hope that it has been informative and interesting. Wordpress sent me my ‘year in review’ summary. Figured I’d share.


Crunchy numbers

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 2,900 times in 2010. That’s about 7 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 25 new posts, not bad for the first year! There were 30 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 8mb. That’s about 3 pictures per month.

The busiest day of the year was December 22nd with 100 views. The most popular post that day was Fascinating podcast on Trichuris trichiura.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were lukecology.blogspot.com, health.groups.yahoo.com, opensourcehelminththerapy.org, waitingforthecure.com, and blog.autoimmunetherapies.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for helminthic therapy, colon comrades, love worm, dr. joel weinstock ovamed, and helminthic therapy guardian.

  1. I got treated by AIT with whipworms and hookworms. I was tested for Hepatitis C and HIV twice after getting the organisms and I was negative. I am having an upper endoscopy in 2 days which will try to get one of the hookworms and send it to pathology to identify the species.

    There’s a private non-censored discussion happening on facebook:
    You will need to create a facebook account to join though. A lot of current and potential future helminthic therapy users are participating there. Feel free to request to join.

    There’s another non-censored Yahoo group which discusses the Do It Yourself (DIY) Helminthic Therapy. It’s called Incubating Hookworm – http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/IncubatingHookworm/
    From what I saw recently there are some people on that board who are offering helminths at no cost. helminthdonor@gmail.com is one of them from what I can see in the recent posts on that board.

    http://opensourcehelminththerapy.org is a very good wiki site where we try to put all relevant info on helminthic therapy. It should become the central hub for all pertinent information.

    I had an amazing experience with helminthic therapy personally. I chose to get 35 hookworms originally(Necator Americanus). 4 months later I drank a vial containing 2500 Trichuris Trichiura ova. 3 months later I got another 35 hookworms. I stopped taking Humira and all other drugs and lost my multiple food allergies.

    You can find me on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Helminthic.Therapy?sk=wall if you have any questions for me.

  2. Excellent stats! I get a lot of traffic from here as well. Things are really getting popular; December 2010 alone I got 3701 views!

    Now, hopefully I’ll start blogging some good news for a change…c’mon hookworms!

    Of all the photos posted, I like the last the best! Nice facial hair–I never would have guessed you look so much like Snidely Whiplash.

    Congrats on a successful blog, improved health, and establishing a great network of fellow helminth-ers.

  4. Yeah, things sure have picked up in the last year. A wiki site, a bunch of people who are doing the DIY thing with breeding helminths, a lot more information in the media, etc. A decade from now we’ll be remembered as the people who brought it to mainstream medicine hopefully 🙂
