How to lose weight fast, without eating less: Cestodic Therapy
I shall state from the outset that some people may find the subject that follows 'squeamish' or distatesful. I would ask you to put your predjudices aside whilst you consider what follows. And remember, given the choice between harmful chemicals which are designed to perpetuate your condition (and thus maximise the profits for Big Pharma) and natural remedies which have existed for centuries and been adapted for modern use, you would be very foolish to have any doubts about which path to follow.
Fact: Tapeworms co-exist peacefully with many wild animals. It is the norm for wild carnivores and herbivores to harbour so-called 'parasitic' worms. Furthermore, up until very recently, most humans had such relationships with worms: only with the advent of modern medicine have they been eliminated from human populations.
Fact: It is known that tapeworms of whatever strain come in two varieties: the helpful and the detrimental. Whilst it is important not to confuse the two, we would be throwing the baby out with the bathwater if we tar them all with the same brush.
Fact: The introduction of worms to your intestinal tract, under strictly controlled and regulated conditions, can help you lose weight quickly and effortlessly. Several patients of mine have been through this process and have found it to be by far the most effective weight-loss programme they had tried. In fact, everyone agreed the results were astounding.
Tapeworms live in the guts of most species of wild animals: foxes, birds, horses, reptiles, deer, fish... You name it, it's probably got a tapeworm. With no-one to 'de-worm' them, most of these animals co-exist quite happily with their tapeworm(s): it's a natural relationship which has been in existence for millenia.

The largest ever discovered tapeworm was recovered from the gut of a Blue Whale and measured 48.5 metres in length; it had a girth of 60cm at its thickest point. Needless to say, such large tapeworms can not live in terrestrial creatures: the largest tapeworm found in a human was discovered in 1991, measuring 11 metres. On the other end of the scale, tapeworms found in the intestinal systems of ants measure only 0.1-0.2mm. This all illustrates the tremendous variety this animal displays in its morphology.
For some reason, modern techno-scientific, reductionist-rationalist medical man came on the scene and decided he didn't like the co-existence of animals with tapeworms. Yet again, the black-and-white dualism of the scientists' thought patterns failed to acknowledge the complexity of the situation and all tapeworms were branded as 'bad'. They had to be exterminated. Noxious chemicals that would expel the tapeworm from both mans' body and the bodies of his domestic animals were developed (and sold!). This interference with the harmony of nature has not only greatly diminished the natural tapeworm population but also left the guts of men and their animals out of sync with their natural balance.
The Problem of Obesity
Obesity is one of the leading problems modern society faces, and many 'cures' are out there on the market: from milk-shakes that taste good, to surgical procedures to remove fat. None of these interventions has much effect in actual fact – partly due to the fact that the intervention is a temporary one.
A Solution to Obesity: Cestodic Therapy
Enter Cestodic Therapy; something that has been around for many years but has been rejuvenated by myself and a group of patients. Over the last 4 or 5 years we have been working together to perfect a technique which allows the introduction of a tapeworm into you, the host. Matters were intially complicated by the fact that the beneficial tapeworm strain originally endemic to the humans of Western Europe has become extinct (the last known specimen is believed to have died with its host in 1972). After a bit of digging around and travelling, a closely-related strain from North Africa was imported (in my gut) to the cooler climes of London. Here, we began our experiments the results of which I am about to present to you.
How Cestodic Therapy works
Cestodic Therapy consists of three main stages:
- Stage 1: Growth of worms in Nursery
- Stage 2: Training of worm to consume gut contents selctively
- Stage 3: Introduction to Host
- Stage 4 (strictly optional): Expulsion of worm
Growth of Worms in Nursery
Worms are hatched from eggs under strictly controlled temperature conditions under a heat lamp or in an incubator. Either way the temperature must be strictly regulated and maintained at 37.5 degrees (pm 0.5 degree). Within 24 hours of hatching, the worms are transplanted into the Nursery: a jar, containing a sugar solution (the worms' initial foodstuff). Special attention must be paid to the depth of this water: too deep and the worms will 'drown' through lack of oxygen. As the worms grow, the solution is topped up to maintain a steady supply of nutrients.

Training of Worm (Preparation for introduction to host)
Prior to this stage, a full analysis of the patient's needs will have been completed in conjunction with a nutritionist. The energy balance of her requirements will be known and a full dietary plan will be drawn up, indicating which food elements should be selectively 'mopped up' by the worm.
Seven days before the planned introduction, the young worm is removed from the nursey. At this stage, it usually measures 10-15cm in length. Upon removal from the Nursery, the worm is taught to feed on certain food groups. It makes sense that the worm is trained to consume carbohydrates and fats in much greater quantities than, say, vitamins and minerals.

To this end, the worm is placed in a bowl of the 'target foodstuffs'. This stage is a delicate one, in that the 'richness' of the foodstuffs to which the worm is exposed must be gradually increased. If sudden exposure to extremely rich or fatty foodstuffs is given, the worm may go into shock and die.
|Initial Stage of Training: simple carbohydrates (rice). If you look carefully you can make out the worm amongst the rice. Constant attention must be paid to both temperature and moisture through these stages, lest drying out occur.|
I like to start the process with a simple bowl of rice. After 24 hours I will add some bones from the cooking. With the passage of a further 24 hours, it should be safe to add some diced up meat (any red meat, or pork), then after a further 24 hours some diced up animal fat is added. These conditions are maintained at 37.5 degrees until the end of the week, at which point the next stage is to be undertaken.
Introduction of Worm to Host
This stage should be straightforward: in theory, it simply consists in the ingestion of the worm (without chewing, of course). However, I have found that (no matter how enthusiastic initially) the patients require some encouragement, and opening a bottle of good wine frequently helps the process.
In essence, the worm is rolled up into a ball and simply swallowed. Not difficult, but easier said than done.
Weight reduction to the target is usually acheived within a matter of 2-3 months, sometimes a little more, somtimes a little less (depending on a variety of factors).
Expulsion of Worm
This last step is entirely optional; some people do not wish to continue living with the worm, others do. As I have outlined above, it is the natural state of our digestive system to 'share its load' with a 'parasitic worm' (or several) so I personally do not recommend this step. The option is there, if requested but does entail the ingestion of some pretty nasty chemicals and entails the death of the worm.

Pete lost over 32lbs using this method in just 3 weeks. He elected to keep the worm in his system after having reached his target weight and reported an additional unexpected benefit: previously a sufferer of severe hayfever, his symptoms improved dramatically.

Tara lost over 70lbs, over a period of 2.5 months.

Cheryl lost about 40lbs; it took just over a month.
These are just a few of the participants who have assisted in the development of this natural weight-loss technique; in total I have worked with 12 people who have succesfully lost weight this way. I think the results speak for themselves: the speed and ease of weight loss using Cestodic Therapy is entirely unrivalled. Do get in touch if you are interested in learning more.
