The scary part of my sister's infestation is that she had what most people think is a healthy diet and she looked perfectly fine and normal. She was only about 10 lbs. overweight. I feel if she could have them so bad anybody could have them. She changed to a super good diet and walks every day. She is very health-conscious these days.
She went swimming years before in a pond that she later discovered was contaminated.
Years later she developed a cyst on her ovary that grew huge...the doctor was sure she had cancer... but she had gone to a health clinic and learned how to get rid of cancer (naturally) so when she had her tumor removed she had no cancer. She was not sick other than this.
She was also around dogs but she never let them lick her or eat off her dishes. She went on many fad diets like the grapefruit diet. We have racked our brains on how she might have gotten them so bad!
We are both in our 60's and people can't believe it - we both look years younger. It's been about 7 years since we both became extremely health conscious.
You forgot to answer my question about liver flukes... don't they look like garden slugs?
