Whipworm Study Results

I know that it has been awhile since I have updated my blog, but wanted to give an update on the Pig Whipworm Study that I participated in from Virginia Mason Medical Center. I received the results this week as to whether I was in the placebo group or in the whipworm group. I can confirm that I did indeed receive the Pig Whipworm eggs.

I feel very torn by the results. I was always holding out hope that I could purchase the worms in Canada and that it would heal my UC, but now that I know that I was in the group and I still did not receive remission, it makes my natural treatment options more limited.

I am hoping that I will indeed receive remission one day without medication, but the search is still on.
