Gut microbiota is the newest health craze. Problems with the good bacteria in the intestines have been correlated with everything from obesity to cardiovascular disease. However,correlation does not mean causation, and certainly does not mean we have successful treatments. So what about microbiota and weight gain? Can we manipulate the microbiota with probiotics or prebiotics to achieve weight loss? The answers might surprise you.

Helminth therapy essentially refers to using health-promoting worms in a very similar manner to how we use probiotics. Healthy helminths may be an important, and missing, part of our gut microbiota communities. By restoring these to our intestinal tract it may be possible to reduce inflammation, balance the immune system and improve autoimmunity. Today we speak with Dr. Nancy O’Hara who has been using helminths in her clinical practice for years.
