Honestly, the western medical community is a disgrace. I read an old medical journal where parasites were seen as a common ailment and treated with the attention they deserved. Nowadays, you're either labelled delusional or repeatedly misdiagnosed and misprescribed.
I remember when I first went to my doctor and told him I thought I had tapeworms. He laughed, and gave me a single menbendazole tablet and sent me on my way. This is the incompetence we have to deal with in the west.
Without communities like this, I probably would have gone insane years ago. It's nice to know we're not alone.
