In my experience it isn't delusional, it IS actually parasites. I am not in the least mad, but I know what I can feel.
I have systemic worms. I can feel the bigger ones squirming, slithering, wriggling, writhing and biting in my left side and upper back. The smaller worms and larva travel all around my body from my scalp and face down to my feet. I believe they have been quietly in residence since I was a child (I am now in my late 50s), but have only 'come out of the woodwork' and made themselves 'known' so to speak in the last year. I haven't a clue why.
There are some experts who believe that as much as 95% of the World's population has one or more parasites. I wouldn't be surprised.
My stool tests came back negative, but that is very common. Very few labs are equipped or qualified to recognise parasites. To my knowledge there are a handful in the US and only one in the UK. But although I have not actually seen any worms I have seen evidence of their existence. I have seen worm tracks around my stool, had narrow red welts appear on my legs as they fled from block anaesthetic that was inserted in my groin after surgery (they apparently hate anaesthetic), and when the cast was removed after the leg operation (pins and plate after a severe break), there were wriggly tracks all in the dried skin on my leg.
i had felt them moving in and out of the wound inside the cast, making it a darn sight.more sore than it should have been.
it makes me angry that people who think they have parasites are dismissed as 'delusional'.many are even considered bonkers. I read of a poor woman who was sent to a psychologist because her doctors wouldn't believe her. It's wicked.
if you have parasites you are better off in India, or some other less developed countries. They know they are a problem and it is taken seriously. Here in the UK or in the US, we are considered immune! You are asked if you 've been abroad, as if parasites don't exist here. wrong! They are everywhere. Other countries don 't have more of a problem than we do - they are just far more aware of it!
Our great-grandparents weren't stupid. They would de-worm themselves and their families regularly. Senna, castor oil, epsom salts, etc. All taken regularly to flush out any unwanted visitors. Did the parasites suddenly disappear? Of course not. We just 'forgot' that ancient wisdom.
All my aches, pains, muscle issues, twitches, insomnia (they are nocturnal), anxiety, etc., I now recognise as worm activity. The fact that even though I eat a very good diet and take plenty of supplements, I can never seem to make up my nutritional deficiencies, is due to the fact that they are constantly hijacking my nutrition. They constantly burden my body with their waste, turn my flesh into mincemeat as they worm around it, keep me awake with their constant movements, and drive me to distraction.
Nutrition - plenty of vitamins, minerals and trace elements from good natural foods (not processed, grains or 'dead' sugar), plus plenty of sleep and rest is very healing. But these darn things are undermining that all the time. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy if I had one. But then he/she would probably have some of their own anyway.....
