This subdomain, blog.autoimmunetherapies.com, contains blogs by six or seven interesting people with things to say on the subject of health.
One of those blogging regularly here used to send me such interesting emails I set this site up so more people could enjoy the links he was then circulating by email, and his commentary on them. His blog is Lost Wanderer.
My blog appears on the home page because I don’t know enough about WordPress to make it rotate the most recent posts by all the bloggers here through the home page.
It is a pity I cannot work out how to share the home page between all those who blog here, because there are far more interesting blogs hosted here than mine. They are all available via the links in the Blogroll on the right of each page. Please check them out.
My blog deals primarily with my experiences using and providing helminthic therapy, deliberate infection with helminths such as hookworm or whipworm, since 2004. I also write about subjects like the palaeolithic diet, and other changes in our environment, habits, lifestyle, diet, etc., that have been at least suggested by science to have an impact on human health. Particularly on immune function.
I believe that a large part of the reason for the massive increase in the incidence of the “modern diseases”, like autism, allergies, asthma, Crohn’s, MS, etc., in the industrialised world is due to the alteration of our personal ecosystems (the ones defined by our bodies and immediate surroundings), and of our intestinal flora, brought about by modern living and an unhealthy preoccupation with cleanliness. Equating sterility with cleanliness, and cleanliness in turn with good, is wrong and has had horrible consequences.
As odd as this idea may first appear to the uninitiated, it has been clearly demonstrated that the substantial reduction in the variety and quantity of microorganisms living in our intestines has had an enormously negative impact on our health in the industrialised world.
