A tied up line representing rope warm. Rope worms may be a byproduct of GMO present in food.If you’re eating right now, maybe you should set your food aside for a moment. Today’s topic, rope worms, isn’t especially appetizing. While parasite biology is not for the squeamish, the importance of this subject cannot be understated. Rope worm, a newly-discovered intestinal invader, may be one of the most frightening and most overlooked parasites plaguing human health today.

Rope worm is different from other known parasites, like roundworms and tapeworms, in that they resemble human feces and intestinal lining. Dr. Gubarev and Dr. Volinsky, researchers who first introduced the parasite at the 2013 International Chronic Disease conference, estimate that every human being may be infected with some type of rope worm. [1]

What Are Rope Worms?

Rope parasites are often mistaken for decayed food matter (feces) or intestinal lining. They were discovered following a routine enema cleanse and were tested to contain human DNA. It is estimated that at least one in four people are infected with intestinal parasites. Symptoms vary and include weight gain/loss, headaches, indigestion, rashes, increased cold and flu incidence, and even cancer. [2] [3]

Many theories have been proposed to explain the presence of rope worms in the human intestinal tract.

  • Rope worms may be a biofilm that forms in the intestines.
  • Worms may be the overabundance or accumulation of mucus in the intestinal tract.
  • Candida infection, an overgrowth of yeast fungus, could be the root cause of rope worms.
  • Rope worms may be a byproduct of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) present in food. Perhaps the altered DNA from GMOs have combined with human intestinal cells and bacteria to form a new life form.

The last theory is perhaps the most alarming, making an organic, all-natural diet a possible protective measure against parasite infections.

Appearance and Function

Mature rope worms can grow over one meter long and have an irregular cylindrical or rope-like shape. Their color is often a dark brown, similar to that of feces. When expelled from the body and exposed to air, they produce a distinct and off-putting odor. Some have speculated that the parasite in rope worm causes the human gut to make a body for it as a vehicle through the intestinal tract, one containing a mixture of parasites and human cells.

Researchers report that mature rope worms affix themselves to the colon wall with the help of suction cup-like bubbles. Food substances have been found in the remains of rope worms, suggesting these parasites may prevent nutrient absorption. Rope worms have also been shown to release toxins in the body as a waste product, further compromising the health of the human host.

Symptoms of Rope Worm Infestation

People with rope worms may experience bloating, gas, frequent illness, headaches, indigestion, heightened allergies, and back pain. These symptoms are not always perceived as connected to the presence of a parasitic worm, and many people will overlook the possibility of having rope worm altogether. Researchers have noted that 15% of cancers are related to parasites and some studies have shown that intestinal parasitic infections can negatively affect mental performance. [4] [5]

Removing Rope Worms

According to Gubarev and Volinsky, coffee enemas are one of the most effective ways to remove rope worms. Other procedures thought to work well include probiotic enemas, milk enemas, water fasting, cleansing, juice cleanses, and large servings of vitamin C. [6] Avoiding GMOs, sugar, and wheat also appear to encourage the evacuation of rope worms. A basic, yet thorough cleansing is one of the simplest and minimally-invasive approaches to removing unwanted toxins from the intestinal tract.

    I think this is what I had and the hospital said I was a either a drug addict or a crazy person cause people don’t get worms. Today I had 3 six inch long rope like worms come out when I went to the bathroom. But people don’t get worms

  • Kandi

    does anyone know if black walnut is also effective on this parasite? I know it eliminates round and tape worms, but this is the first I’ve heard of the rope worm. Pumpkin seeds? Coconut oil? kandiland22@yahoo.com Please feel free to e-mail me if you have pertinent info. Thanks

  • Clay Griffin

    I have been expelling these ropeworms ever since I started doing coffee enemas over 15 months ago. Using a black walnut and wormwood complex does seem to expel them more rapidly. Sometimes I expel some really big ones after an Andreas Moritz liver flush. I can’t believe that these suckers are also in my liver, but I can’t deny the evidence. Are they mucus? I don’t know. They look like fleshy-brown Twizzlers. :/

    I have a video of mine I have also saved quite a few samples if anyone is interested. I have lost a ton of weight and am now very week. I have also lost about 4 inches in the length of my hair and it is very thin and will not grow. I have went to both local hospitals and they both acted as though I was crazy. Both hospitals said they never heard of rope worms and the first hospital stated “people don’t get worms”. I’m afraid they are all through my body and not just in my intestines. I did try a 3 day dose of albenzie when I first became sick and it really seemed to help. I felt better and almost back to my old self for about 4 months and the little by little I started feeling sick again. Then within I’d say 2 weeks I went from feeling a little week to feeling like I could die any day. I am really worried that they may kill me before I get help. Does anyone know if there are any pesticides that will actually kill them and are they contagious?

  • kandi

    I don’t know how to do an enema on myself. If you get the chance can you e-mail me the instructions. Thank you for responding to my post. I’ve started my black walnut regime again and am on a meat/fish free diet at the moment. Do you really think it takes 15 months to be completely rid of them or is this something that is maintenance because we don’t know the source yet? Ha, just realized we have the same last name 🙂

  • kandi

    Have you asked the doctor to do a stool culture. You may have to get a 2nd and 3rd opinion. Doctors don’t always like to explore the unlikely, too much work for what they’re getting paid for. Go see a chinese Dr., an herbalist to get a natural remedy. putting more chemicals in your body in the way of pesticides will only complicate the illness. Go online and get the oil of oregano and try that before putting chems in your body.

  • MC

    do a search on
    Jim Humble , Kerri Rivera and Andreas Kalcker..
    They have come up with a protocol that kills parasites and pathogens in human body.. Good luck

    I have had these and been trying to treat them for nearly 10 years,both conventionally before I knew what I was dealing with and naturally after being diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer which I treated naturally through nutritional therapy and a complete natural approach,I am now cancer free yet my life is being made a misery by this rope worm that I have researched and researched ,I am currently trying the eucalyptus enemas on top of my usual coffee enema’s,plus the lemon, the only effect so far is constipation!!!!!!! He’s bigger than ever despite having passed meters of the stuff over the last year,I can feel the knot in my gut where he resides,I have tried the whole pet rather than threat thing and have the perfect diet full of organic veg and loads of good bacteria foods.
    If any one out there has an answer and wants to treat me I am ready and willing to try anything, I beat cancer but this has me almost defeated (todays a bad day ,I’m normally very positive) There has to be a solution?

  • Antoinette

    Sorry Kandi for not acknowledging your comment, I have tried black walnut and many other herbal parasite cleanses but this thing does not play by the usual rules ,enema’s are really key but as you can see from my first comment they are persistent tenants and I suspect to some degree part of our own bodys function? Enema’s are quite easy once you have got over the intimate nature of them,going for colonic hydrotherapy helps you get used to the process and they are quite relaxing once you get the hang of it.
    Hope this helps fellow sufferer and there is a health radio show where you can listen to professor Alex ???? his second name escapes me but the site comes up when you google rope worm ,he successfully got rid of his and speaks about it at length ,it was the most comprehensive info I have come across and worth listening to.

    This sounds like a scam….’MAY be a biofilm’, ‘MAY be an overabundance of mucus’, ‘COULD BE candida’, ‘MAY be a product of gmos’…..ha ha ha ha ha!, or ‘PERHAPS a new life form’. In other words–we don’t know, but we’ll scare you with our pseudoscience and recommend…(gasp) Organic!–which tends to house more parasites than other types of farming.

    Brend-The Drs.don’t knosuckers!!. When you find a “real,real doctor” Let us all know!! These suckers…live in the intestinal track! I pass them periodically-Gross!!

  • Brenda Diederich

    Its mucus. A by-product of IBS, etc. Not a live worm.

  • morgs nightmare buggin out

    So i don’t pass sections of them every BM or have eggs in a distinct number of staged in every BM. Or hear movement at night with my ear to my pillow while sharpe pains through the inside of my body and chest. There are many manifestations in every system of the body. good luck with finding a “doctor” most of us have been to countless dr.s and my specialist Is years behind my understand gained from simple observation and thousands of hours of tireless reasearch. Because i’VE BEEN TO THE “REAL DOCTORS”..MANY. And they proved to be uninformed and an embarrassment to the few that do care within their vocational field. I can’t think, remember, mitigate emotional stress. I’m fcking dieing. Been on extreme antibiotics and antiparasitics with almost no reliefe or hope. I need this enema treatment to start to flush these from my body. I’m terrified. This sucks i used to be called brad pitt. From about thirteen on now im 31, bald and look and feel like “sad pity” should be my name.

  • BigPharmaShill4Life

    I think the primary cause of rope worms is pure, unadulterated bullshit, and as a treatment I suggest a conversation with any real doctor or scientist on the planet. It’s telling that you wrote an article purporting to be all about “rope worms” but didn’t bother to include the binomial name or this obviously non-existent species.

  • BigPharmaShill4Life

    Don’t worry – it only sounds like a scam because that’s what it is. If you don’t believe in this non-existent parasite and the profiteers who want to sell you garbage remedies that harm you then you’re just a shill! Illuminati! Lizard people! Witch!

    I don’t know if this will work, but it worked for 5 years at looking at leukemia. Buy 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide and distilled water. Start by taking 1 drop/day upping it by another drop/day. I did this for 5 months and for the first time in over 21 years, my blood was normal for the first time. There are YT’s on it. Some people go up to 25 drops/day. I was constant at around 18. ALSO, I did the turpentine and honey for parasites. 3 parts honey with diamondforestproducts turpentine. WHOA!!! All kinds of buggers came out.

    well I had numbness in my arms, a huge weight loss, then my hair broke off, I have blotchy skin, skin is very sensitive to hot and cold, very irritable, high blood pressure, sick all the time, now that they are well over a foot long I can feel them move in my stomach and throughout my body. I can’t remember nothing I went from A’s to C’s in school. THis is the worst thing in the world and I feel as if I am dying with this and the medical field won’t help they refuse to believe its real.

    I was just wondering if H2O2 would be effective for this. If not it wouldn’t hurt and may help other things. I just read this article a bit ago about H2O2. Beat Cancer With 35% Hydrogen PeroxideGet Holistic Health

  • G Clay

    Do you mean like VACCINES?

  • G Clay

    It’s called MMS also known as Master Mineral Solution or Miracle Mineral Solution and CDS, Chlorine Dioxide Solution. Look it up and do your own research.

  • Debbie parker

    Also see Dr. Jennifer Daniels on turpentine. Also check out 35% food grade H2O2.

  • Debbie parker

    See the YT’s on Dr. Jennifer Daniels on turpentine and also check out 35% food grade h2o2. They will help you.

    SOrry to be the bearer of bad news but Alex Volinsky never got rid of the rope worms. He still has them til this day. I am on his Facebook ropeworm board and he has not gotten rid of them. As far as we know there is no cure yet. I have had them for 3 years now. You should join the rope worm group on Facebook

  • christyb17

    Debbie Parker, I have been using peroxide now for about 4 months and this is the best I have felt in 3 years. How long have u been better now?

  • Debbie parker

    I’m sorry Christy, I’m just seeing your post. (Don’t really know how this discuss works……….it popped up as somewhat of an ad on the right side bar). I did the H2O2 for 5 months, then saw the hematologist I was referred to 10 months earlier. I’m glad you feel good now!!! It oxygenates your blood and cleans it out. Did you try the turpentine and honey yet? I currently have my doxie, who is 13.5 years old now on it. She has a bad tooth and I cant’ afford a vet bill. (My car just broke down). Within 1-2 days, the swelling went down. Her right eye was almost completely shut from the infection. Maybe it’s time to get back on it myself? So glad to hear you are feeling great!!!!! Are you still on it and how much are you taking? As far as the WBC’s & neutrophil elevations…………….it was 1 year this past August. Take care and God bless.

  • Debbie parker

    Hi, I am so sorry I am now just seeing your post. Did you try the peroxide yet? If not, do it. Look above at what I wrote to Christy. If you have any questions, feel free to write me…………that’s if I can figure how discuss works. You should also try the turpentine with honey. Everyone has parasites!!!! They do and when they come out, you are getting rid of disease also. Also feel free to e-mail me. (See address above). P.S. Got my numb hands working too!!!!

  • Debbie parker

    Good one!!!!

  • Debbie parker

    Christy, do the turpentine (diamondforest dot com) mixed with 3 parts honey and 1 part turp.

  • Tony Armour

    Try drinking chlorophyll and scrubbing your body with African black soap. It seemed too removed more things then I knew I had . I even brushed my teeth with it.
