In Australia we have a show on the ABC entitled 'Bodysnatchers' - it's about the human body and immune system, nervous system etc.

Last week there was a really interesting segment (unfortunately I missed it) wherein a chap who'd had bad sinus for many many years was given an orangey coloured drink that contained worm eggs that when swallowed and hatched would heal his internal organs. He stated that he felt 100% better than he had done in his entire life and that these worms (the name I think is kessen satsu)did not harm the body in any way.

Has anybody heard of this at all? I've written to the television station requesting a fact sheet but haven't heard anything back from them as yet.

No, but I will love it if you can tell us all about it! My mom has many medical problems like Rheumatiod Arthrites, low immune system and many others. I'll do some research when I'm done doing school work. Thanks for posting that post! laugh

My pleasure Cluck, as soon as I get anything on it I'll post it up. If it's as good as what I've heard I can't wait to find out more.

I've heard of larva reparing scars and wounds.

But never anything like this. I'll ask my mom's friend he's a Sientist Doctor

Thanks Stephanie, I'd appreciate that. If I don't hear from the television station by tomorrow I'll be phoning them.

Yes, the recent news I heard to cure the weaken immune system is to use Cloning. They clone something from a cow and pass it to a human. I'm still waiting for new results but I try to research your information

I don't know, everything I find on the web describes how worms (eating worm eggs) causes serious health problems. I don't find anywhere that talks about doing it on purpose. I really really doubt worms could "heal" internal organs for you. They need nutrients and take them from the host system, i.e. you. Please post if you find anything on this!

I'll post anything I get from them on this subject. It amazed me as I always thought that worms would do more damage than good.

Well, for leeches you don't eat them smile Leeches have a substance in their saliva that keeps the blood from coagulating - i.e. when the leech bites a creature, it makes sure the blood keeps flowing and doesn't stop up. So they use that substance in cases where they need the blood to keep flowing smoothly.

For maggots, they are traditionally critters that eat dead flesh. So in a situation where a person has damaged tissue, they sometimes put maggots on that area to eat away at the damaged tissue so the rest of the area can grow properly.

I don't know that I think either is gross really, is a lion gross? He eats dead animals. All creatures eat something smile It's only us humans that say some things are OK to eat and others are not OK ...
