I was the opposite. Being a "proper" Southern lady I would never have believed I had parasites. However, I passed an 18 inchTapeworm after an enema. After crying and shaking all night I went to my naturopath and got treatment. I know parasites are very real, from pinworms as a kid to the Tapeworm as an adult, I have dealt with them in the past and may again in the future. But, when parasites become an obsession counseling may be the best medicine. We must have compassion on these people; whether or not the parasites are real, the suffering is.
