The Rope worm as a possible new type of parasite was presented recently at a 2013 International Chronic Disease Conference by a Dr. Nikolai Gubarev and Professor Alex Volinsky. Listen to an interview with Professor Volinksy here.
It has been reported that they can be over one meter long, with an irregular cylindrical shape, resembling a rope. These anaerobic intestinal “rope” parasites differ significantly from other well-known intestinal parasites.
The phenomenon has been named Homo Funis Vermis or Human Rope Worm. Its existence and the patented treatment methods are now being promoted by alternative health experts such as Dr Dietrich Klinghardt for sufferers of Lyme’s Disease, Morgellons and even children with Autism. Patients generally report significant improvements in their state of health after eliminating rope worms.
It is suggested that the Rope worm triggers the gut to produce a body for it that may be a mix of parasites and human DNA. Rope parasites can leave human body with enemas, and are often mistaken for intestinal lining, feces, or decayed remains of other parasites
According to one of their papers,
Parasite adult stages live in human gastro-intestinal tract and are anaerobic. They move inside the body by releasing gas bubbles utilizing jet propulsion. Rope parasites look like a rope, and can be over a meter long. It takes tens of years for them to fully develop into mature species (fifth stage). The fourth stage look similar, but the parasite is shorter and has softer slimier body. The third stage looks like branched jellyfish. The second stage is viscous snot, or mucus with visible gas bubbles that act as suction cups. The first stage is slimier mucus with fewer bubbles, which can reside almost anywhere in the human body.
The first paper quoted above describes in detail each development stage and can be found here: *WARNING: There are graphic images in the following papers.
The second paper gives a general overview and details the workings of this infection:
