about TSO

Trichuris Suis Ova, or TSO, are the eggs of the porcine whipworm. These helminths are similar to human whipworms but do not reproduce in the human body. They are microscopic eggs that hatch after a few hours and attach to the lining of the bowel. There they interact with the immune system and normalize immune response. Used as a treatment for Crohn’s disease, they have been shown to be safe and effective in mainstream scientific studies. Manufactured by Ovamed, they have been approved for sale as an over the counter medication in Thailand. They are available at www.ovamed.org
