Before you tell your kids to stop playing in the dirt and get back to their important Flappy Bird record-breaking goals, you might want to reconsider. Dirt is filled with tons of microorganisms that are great for developing healthy immune systems, but slithering through the dirt and microorganisms are your new best friends: worms. According to research, worms are effective in preventing, and even curing, multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases, and all you have to is (commence instinctive shuddering) ingest them.
It may seem insane to add more parasites to a malfunctioning digestive tract, but it's just creepy enough to cure autoimmune conditions. Imagine suffering from digestive inflammation, and a scientist in a white lab-coat hands you a shot of whipworm eggs, like what happened to one inflammation sufferer in 2007. Well, turns out, those little buggers hatched and cured his colitis. The problem of ulcerative colitis involves a lack of mucus production, which is exactly what those happy little worms are able to repair.
Hookworms have the incredible ability to cure autoimmune afflictions, including asthma, allergies, MS, and even diabetes. In order for the worms to do their magic, there's no invasive medical procedure or pill. All you have to do is walk around barefoot in an area where the tiny parasitic nematodes are wriggling around, and they penetrate your skin to enter your bloodstream. It may sound terrifying, but once the hookworms are in your bloodstream, they can easily become your best friend if you are suffering from an autoimmune disease, and hey, look at the bright side, you never have to be alone if your body is filled with worms.
