Pinworms are also called “threadworms.” They’re the most common type of intestinal worm infection in the U.S., and one of the most common in the world.
Rachel Arthur discovered that many of her patients were infected with worms. She saw that worms migrated from the anus into the vagina, bladder and genital-urinary system. She also witnessed the havoc worms had on people’s health. With stool tests being a terribly inaccurate tool for diagnosis, she found assessment, diagnosis and treatment protocols that are helping many people affected. We discuss the misconception that worms are something someone picks up “in a developing country.” Learn how to assess if you are at risk and how you can regain your health and fertility.
