Intestinal worms for Crohn's

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created August 12, 2012 at 4:11 PM

Hi, I've been on AZT for 7 years now for Cronh's after presenting at the #AHS last year (and yesterday) I have gone Paleo (more or less) with a big improvement but still lots of problems. I've reduce the meds but want to stop so have been considering intestinal worms. My consultant is OK has taken a scan for a base line but it's up to me now.

Can anyone; 1) give me first hand experience 2) tell me if they think that this is a good idea 3) know where to get worms from (I am in the UK)

Thank you very much,

Mike

There is an issue with your liver if your level gets too high, like above 90 I suppose. That's why you need to be tested regularly after you start supplementing.

I do attribute my remission solely to vitamin d. In fact if you search there is now a study or two that show symptoms disappearing.

Sorry for being so ignorant on this issue but becoming a warlock suggests that there are some disadvantages of taking high levels of D, I did supplement with A and D for a while but it did not make much difference. I could try this but I am also researching the worms angle

Its your blood level of D3. The lab test is 25-hydroxyvitamin D, or 25(OH)D. Here, they are saying that getting your level up to (at least) 70 ng/mL will help. High blood levels help for many autoimmune or inflammatory diseases. I have Hashimoto's and attempt to keep mine at least 75.

From what I understand about worms, they only live about 5 years. Also you need to travel to Mexico to get them done, so its probably a costly procedure. I have no idea what its like in UK though. I would love to know how to get vitamin d up to level 70 without becoming a warlock, or using more than 10,000 ui of d3 a day.
