Thank you again for your input, it's an honor to make your aquaintance.
I will say that I've spent most of my life being mis-diagnosed, and told that perhaps if I changed my attitude my body would be able to heal itself. Amazingly enough, when my husband and I re-did the lid to our septic tank, we discovered a thriving colony of tapeworms, and since we had the tank completely drained when we took possession of the house, it was either him or me.
After many years of wellbutrin, acupuncture, postivie thinking, homocrits, colonoscopys and generally being blamed because my health was poor and my energy was low, I passed a beef tape worm with a 5 mm scolex, probably something I'd have since I was a little kid (or it's decendant) with live stock. Not to mention psychotherapy, group, 12 step programs, and even a stint with ceremonial magic. This whole process was very profitable for the MD's psychologists, alternative medical practioners, and anyone else who managed to dish out a little bit of hope and get their hands in my pocket.
I would estimate that the tape worm was probably 50 feet long, and my biggest concern was that I would get an obstructed bowel.
All I can say for people who suggest 'healthy living' and 'positive thinking' for severe parasitc infection, is that I hope all of your dreams come true, and I hope they are what you want them to be.
