The Miracle of Earthworm for Alternative Medicine

Updated on February 28, 2010

When we talk about this animal it look disgusting especially among woman. But this animal give us many benefit to human. Earthworms also help the farmer in rejuvenate the soil. I also give this to my student in the science lesson. In the world of beauty earthworm also useful as an ingredient of cosmetics. Maybe for people in the city it little difficult to find worm but for people who life in village they can easily find this animal.

Why I choose this topic and use earthworm as an object. Because for a couple days my mother got sick. After examine by the doctor, my mom got typhus. She is a teacher also like me. As a son I am confuse because the doctor said to me if my mother want to care in the hospital her health get well soon. And the problem is my mother doesn't want care in the hospital. In my confusing my neighbor advised me to give to the mother earthworm. EARTHWORM!!!! it look crazy, my mother certainly wouldn't want to eat earthworms. It was very disgusting, I remember the "FEAR FACTOR" one of the reality show in television, where the people asked to eat earthworm.

"Don't worry about that" said my neighbor. " this is not like what you think. your mother do not have to eat earthworms. but eating capsules containing the earthworm", he said again. But for me it look the same. And he explain again the inside the capsule is a dried earthworm. And it really safe and secure. "Don't worry there is no side effect by consume these capsule, and I guarantee your mother get well soon" he said again.

Between my confusing. I didn't think twice, so I bought a bottle of worm capsule in drug store. In the bottle contain 12 capsules. With the price $2 for each bottle. The seller said to me that many people felt good and their health back to normal after consume earthworm capsule. It give me a new spirit. And finally I gave the capsule to my mother. With good approach as a son I explain that this is natural medicines. And she have to consume these capsule to get well. After drunk these capsule her condition is going well and back to normal.

I want to share with all of you

Wow...this is a miracle. I never thought before that disgusting animal like an earthworm give health for us and it proof with my mother.

And I want to share with all of you. Actually the useful of earthworm not only for typhus. But there are many disease could healing by the earthworm.

In addition with the expensive treatment,cancer surgery are also very complex and complicated. The patient was very uncomfortable.One-time treatment and radiation cost thousand dollar, beside chemotherapy standard drugs. chemotherapy goal is total recovery for patient.

      By the way, I don't think earthworms are disgusting, though I'm not very interested in ingesting them either. I have enormous respect for the work they do for us by composting and keeping our soil healthy and full of nutrients which we then get from the plants we eat.

      Know I will share to entire world that earthworm is really useful for alternative medicine. Never disgusting again, but felt the benefit by consume the earthworm.

      The recipe is : the water from earthworm stew mixed with honey and turmeric. And the result was amazing. The health come back. This is really natural. And we can use it all the time. When we felt sick or healthy.

      For Nancy, when your older sister got the worm. The first clean all the earthworm from the soil, then drain under the sun. After that you can fried without oil, the last step is it can be crushed and put it in the capsule. I hope the cholesterol problem will end.

      I knew that earthworms are one of the gardener best friends, but I didn't know that they can be used as a medicine. The idea is slightly tough, but I think that we would be very surprised to know how some drugs or beauty creams are made. Another interesting hub prasetio.

      Thank you for this very interesting hub. My oldest daughter loves to hunt for earthworms. She carried one around for about an hour one day and I had to make her release it so it wouldn't dry out. If only I could get my mom to take these pills. My mom has high cholesterol and she won't take prescription medicine. She's been taking fish oil pills for it. She hates worms but if this could help her it would be great. I'll have to tell her about it.
