Table 2: Survey results. The participant's overall ratings of effectiveness in alleviation of disease symptoms/adverse side effects are given, unless the participant clearly stated that some conditions were treated (effective) while others were not (not effective). Thus, the ratings from a single participant may appear more than once, depending on the number of conditions reported. Scores are on an 11-point scale, from 0 to 10, with 0 being either no effectiveness or no side effects, and 10 being either very effective or horrible side effects (e.g., a rating of 10/0 would be the most effective therapy with the least side effects, whereas a rating of 0/10 would describe a completely ineffective therapy with horrible side effects). The number using each helminth or combination of helminths is listed in parentheses beside the helimth. The scores obtained from participants that were apparently “underdosed” with HDCs (as judged by incomplete effects and low number of helminths) are in bold font. The descriptions of conditions used are those provided by the participants, so there may be some overlap between conditions that are listed separately (e.g., seasonal allergies, hay fever or allergies), and some terms may not correspond exactly with accepted medical terms. *The participant with depression who rated helminthic therapy as 5/0 was the one who stopped taking medications at the time he began helminthic therapy (participant no. 45, see Section 3 and Table 4).
