Has anyone here looked into or tried Helminthic therapy?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helminthic_therapy

I first heard about it as a cure for asthma and allergies by way of self-treating with hookworm. Apparently it can work wonders for immune-related diseases...check out the radio lab episode about parasites: http://www.wnyc.org/shows/radiolab/episodes/2009/09/25

It may be gross, but is it effective?

it's pretty effective. There is a large thread here that you can read that discusses them:
