YUKKY POO - Hookworms can help with Multiple Sclerosis, according to British doctor

Bee stings , j ellyfish , why not  hookworms ?
Certainly a lot of f ascinating and odd suggestions  have been touted as  alternative therapies  to help Multiple Sclerosis.
A doctor from Great Britain says that hookworms  could help autoimmune diseases  like Multiple Sclerosis,  Crohn's disease or colitis.
Dr. Jasper Lawrence places parasitic worms in his patients's intestines. He guarantees an infection for three years.
Lawrence  gave an interview to Lauren Cooper  that was posted Sunday (May 30) on  where he explained the procedure and compared it to the expensive and potentially dangerous use of MS drugs, like Tysabri.
Lawrence pointed out that a  five-year course of treatment for MS with Tysabri, made by Biogen Idec and Elan Pharmaceuticals, costs about $140,000, and he charges $3,050. 

"If you were in business, would you replace a drug that earned you $140,000 over five years with a parasite that might earn you $4,000 that was more effective? All the drugs that are on the market -- Methotrexate, 
Tysabri , Humira -- all these drugs would suddenly be worthless," he says. "It's not going to happen, is it?"

He said that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is putting stumbling blocks that is delaying his chance to give people the opportunity for his treatment in the United States. He offers the treatment in Great Britain and in Mexico.
The way it works is that Lawrence puts about three dozen hookworms on a bandage and they burrow into your arm and then into the bloodstream. They eventually make their way to the lungs, where they are coughed up and wind up in the small intestine.
Lawrence had treated more than 180 people, as well as himself
