An article by one of the authors in my blogroll has me intrigued. Most of it is over my head and will require much more reading but the gist of it seems to be that certain "bugs" could be introduced into the body which will alter the immune system's over-activity in instances of autoimmune disease such as multiple sclerosis (which I have). If any of you better understand this I would love to know if there is anything I can do on my own to get these bugs working for me. :)
*edit ... EWW! I think I'll wait for someone to mimic the same thing in a non-wormy form. I just Googled "helminth" and OMG gross!
Here are links to some articles discussing this topic:
