"Basic Recipe

Diatomaceous Lotion Basic Recipe
•4 oz of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. This is a dry volume measurement, not a weight measurement.
•12 oz of a non-greasy skin Lotion preferably with Aloe Vera.

In a 16 oz squirt bottle (condiment bottle) combine the D.E. with the lotion. This should be a 25% D.E. to 75%  lotion ratio. Use a long-handled spoon stir until completely mixed. Apply to body after showering/bathing and before bedtime. The  D.E.  lotion should leave a thin chalky film on the body when dry. This is the defensive barrier of D.E. and is almost quite pleasant, similar to talc.

One may add 5 -10 drops of E.O. especially the Thieve’s Oil blend to this recipe.  If lotion is too thick especially when in colder temperatures it is easy to gently heat the bottle in a pan of simmering water, similar to heating a baby’s bottle. Carefully check temperature of lotion before applying.
.......................
Alternative Recipe for Diatomaceous Earth Lotion
•4 oz of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. This is a dry volume measurement, not a weight measurement.
•12 oz of organic Coconut Oil.
•5 – 10 drops of T.O. blend or E.O. (optional)

Another Alternative
•4 oz of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth. This is a dry volume measurement, not a weight measurement.
•6 oz of organic Coconut Oil.
•6 oz organic cold pressed Olive Oil.
•5 – 10 drops of T.O. blend or E.O. (optional)

Mix together as in the first recipe. This is an alternative recipe that is more effective but has a few drawbacks also. This recipe is very similar to the first but instead of lotion the carrier agent is oil. One benefit is the oils recommended have a combined antifungal/antiparasitic quality. The drawbacks are that this recipe is a little more expensive and the drying time after application is a little longer.

Coconut oil contains caprylic acid, a great anti-fungal and alone is easily absorbed by the skin and the drying time is not much longer than that with the lotion. Olive oil has great anti-parasitic properties due to its content of oleic acid and it’s tendency to smother and draw parasites from the skin. Together these two oils are an excellent carrier oil though as mentioned they are not as quickly absorbed into the skin. There may be a slightly greasy feel left on the skin as well. Adding T.O. blend or E.O. of one’s choice makes this D.E. lotion even more effective. Use of the carrier oils may cause the blend to become rancid over an extended period of time(over 1 week).

Typically these lotions are used twice daily for a period of  3 – 6 weeks. It is suggested that other protocols and treatments be carried out at the same time. Environmental cleansings such as the use of enzyme sprays environmentally or the use of D.E. environmentally.

Use of D.E. Environmentally

Problematic Upholstered Furniture and Other Items

If the severity of one’s symptoms persists or one becomes aware of certain problematic areas such as beds, cars, or certain upholstered items then the following spray can be effective. This is a spray consisting of Diatomaceous Earth (link) and liquid… water may be suitable but liquid enzymes are more effective. The use of a plastic spray bottle is needed.
1.One quart/liter plastic bottles are the best and easily found at many stores and garden centers. IMPORTANT… before mixing spray open the spray bottle. There is a small plastic filter on the intake tube to the pump/lid. It will easily clog unless removed. Simply pull it off.
2.The spray is 25% D.E. to 75% water/solution (Blue window cleaning fluid is another choice available in some grocers and department stores in gallon sizes for very cheap). Be certain to fill the sprayer only to the fill mark indicated. Pump… and shake and spray. The DE will not stay in solution for long so shake often and pump often to retain spray pressure.
3.A Medium to fine mist is desired. Spray the problematic areas lightly but thoroughly. This includes all surfaces of the item in question…top, bottom, inside and out. If nozzle becomes clogged just opening the nozzle up usually clears the clog. Box fans will speed up drying times.
4.Properly done this method leaves a thin-film of D.E. on the surface sprayed. D.E. sprayed lightly will not show up on light to medium colored fabrics when dry. May show as a powdery residue on dark colors and hard surfaces. Easily washed out or wiped away.
5.Wipe away and vacuum older D.E. films before reapplying new treatments. May be applied as needed with applications becoming less frequent as condition comes under control.
6.This treatment is very effective for outdoor areas too… dog runs, dog beds and kennels playground equipment and yards.

Yowbarb Note: RE Maca gets rid of, or helps get rid of “Morgollons Disease.” !

I found this on the net.

This is a big deal, due to the fact morgollons is a weird condition, not well understood which wasn’t heard of a few years ago.
It was probably caused by weird farming practices putting nematodes into the soil and GMO etc.
If you google “morgollons” you will see page after page on it. Lots of people getting absolutely no help from their doctors, and looking for answers on their own.
This below is a testimonial about how the person’s simple dietary changes and using maca got rid of the problem. Page link:

http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/morgellons2.html 
Dietary Changes
04/18/2011: Anna from Fort Lauderdale, Florida: "Hello,
I have had this for almost 2 years now, but I have to say that since I started an alkaline diet like changing cow milk with almond milk, lowering my sugar intake and taking 2 spoons of wheat grass powder at night before going to bed, I almost forgot about the crawling stinging, and itching sensation.
I take 1 spirulina pill with a multivitamin in the morning and 1 maca pill just to start my day and feel full of energy. Maca is great against Morguellons because not only is good for the inmune system and energy also it gets rid of the pain I used to feel, the stinging sensation. I take maca 1 or twice a day. Also I lowered my sugar intake, but sometimes I get a few cookies or chocolate during the day with no effects of any kind.
I don't take colloidal silver, MSO, garlic pills, alfalfa or any other stuff I used to take before when I was desperate looking for something that could give me my normal life back. I don't see those horrible black dots or hair anymore. Sometimes I even forget that I have this disease and feel that thank God I am living a normal life now."

Yowbarb Note:

This forum on earthclinic site [ http://www.earthclinic.com/ ] is dedicated to people trying to figure out "Morgollons Disease" and
what to do about it.

As mentioned in a previous post, maca and alkaline dietary changes helped one woman a lot. I don't know if she got rid of the situation or not but that is worth knowing about. See my previous post.

PS: None of these companies, no matter how great can legallly promise a "cure."
All I can say is, melaleuca (tea tree oil) has been known to help a lot with infestations or skin irritations of various types. The company, doTERRA uses non-GMO, organic essential oils. They do sell melaleuca along with several other essential oils.
I am just saying it is definitely worth a try. A little diligence, faith and consistency may help a lot.

I bought something called "Sovereign Silver" a year or so ago and wonder if anyone knows if it has any value?  I don't have the container in front of me, and don't believe it states "colloidal silver" as an ingredient, but it suggested it was as good. 

Anyone heard of it?

Everyone do not forget this one post of mine.  The post quotes a fellow who swears claims he beat Morgollons with a good quality colloidal silver along with a dewormer med.

Also note: Based upon what I have read the colloidal silver should be a size LESS THAN .005 microns.

Here is the link:

Maybe that type of colloidal silver along with getting rid of parasites and extra careful hygiene and cleaning areas or tossing out possessions... might work on Morgollons...

After reading some of the text in your post, I believe your post and my earlier one derive from the same source, as some of the text is identical.  Your link though has probably everything the Morgellons sufferer needs.

I plan on sending this to an acquaintance who runs/owns a pest control company.  She has stated that several dermatologists in town send their Morgellons patients to her in the event she has something to help them!  At least the dermatologists are not telling the patients they have "Delusional Parasitosis" as I near many derm's do.

Thanks again.

I wonder if this would help with Morgollons or related conditions:

Emuaid First Aid Ointment

EMUAID® is made from the highest quality natural healing ingredients available without a prescription. Our medical grade homeopathic ointment combines specific bio-active ingredients such as:-Argentum Metallicum (10x, 20x, 30x HPUS Pure Colloidal Silver), a broad spectrum ointment for wounds and a strong anti-infective used to treat skin infections.

Other cosmetic ingredients include:

-Bacillus Ferment, a probiotic.

-L-Lysine HCL, an amino acid.

-Tea Tree Oil, an essential oil.

-Phytosphingosine (.1%), a naturally occurring lipid.

-Ceramide 3, a plant-derived, skin-identical lipid.

Transdermal Delivery

EMUAID® utilizes a natural, yet highly effective transdermal delivery system by synthesizing Emu Oil with our proprietary blend of healing actives which makes EMUAID® efficient and fast-acting. Emu oil has intense moisturizing and rejuvenating properties, as well as effectively penetrating skin better than many other systems, making Emu Oil one of the best transdermal carriers for therapeutic ingredients. Emu Oil can penetrate tissue cells faster and more effectively than most other mechanisms and clinical studies showed that Emu Oil as a transdermal carrier is 20 times more effective at penetrating the stratum corneum, or “skin barrier,” than mineral oil.

Itchy skin is most commonly caused by candida overgrowth.  Before ruling in something more exotic, might want to evaluate recent sugar intake, including from fruit, and try a break from sugar.  Fungi invade us in two stages: The non-virulent first stage, in which our immune system is able to cope with it.  The second stage, if it progresses, becomes virulent by forming hyphae (same as mycelium strands in innoculated garden soil).  This is when severe itching and migraines occur.

Possible supplements to consider for itching caused by fungus / candida (and they are very effective combined, especially with sugar under control):

Capryllic acid from coconut oil, palm fruit oil and butter, up to 2,000 mg daily worked up to slowly as tolerated

Biotin 1,000 mg daily max.  Both of these first two supplements prevent fungi from transforming into the more virulent hyphae stage.  Could get away with just one of these, unless you like sweets as much as I do...

Broad spectrum probiotic (multiple strains): microbes should be numbered in the billions, not millions

 I recently read that fungi, including mushrooms, colonize locations that are contaminated or diseased in nature's effort to clean and mend - never thought of it that way, so now I have a little more respect for the process, and for the delicate balance of fungi in the body.

Am including a diagram of a simple fungus morphing into the hyphae stage.  Just looking at all the little ticklish arms makes me feel like scratching :)

Many Morgellons sufferers have become researchers themselves, one being Jan Smith.  Her website, I think now former site, was one of the best, absolutely:  www.morgellonsexposed.com but she had problems sometimes at renewal time when hackers tried to take over her site and post porn.  Finally, she may have grown weary of dealing with her ailment, and with the hackers too.

She had posted a mountain of references and information about the history of genetic tinkering with organisms, including slime molds, from whom some of the DNA is thought to be now incorporated into the Morgellons organisms, which BTW seem to be able to continue to morph and mutate.  Many, many of these victims believe that genetic engineering is at the core in the creation of Morgellons Disease.  They could be right.  Jan even posted pictures of some of the "devices" that she personally removed from her body, including some which had numbers and letters "etched" in/on them, and IIRC, she even found in her internet research of patents, that some of the objects she removed from her body in her quest to rid herself of Morgellons, match pictures or sketches of those in patent applications.  We have so much to learn.

Aged garlic extract is another good option for that crawly skin feeling.  Not sure about its place in the Morgellons arsenal though.

Not a bad idea. People could try it.

Yowbarb Note: RE my previous post.
In the woman's post on curezone, in which she got rid of Morgollons, she referrred to the SCD, the SPECIFIC CARBOHYDRATE DIET so here is one link on it.
I posted this also in the Topic,
CANCER CURES: A collection of natural substances recommended to prevent/cure cancer
...
http://www.breakingtheviciouscycle.info/p/about-the-diet/  the SCD

According to a brief search on my own, the ketosis diet is more powerful for preventing, kicking or surviving cancer than other similar diets or those with overlapping foods and concepts...

The SCD is supposedly easier to stick with...

The doctors call it DOP (delusions of parisitosis), but Morgellons is a real disease and my brother suffered from it. We bought a cheap microscope (only 20 bucks!) on EBAY and the fibers were exactly like the ones on the internet and they were VERY alive. We beat it, and here is how: He used Borax - 1 cup - in his bathwater each day, he used a special soap that I bought on the internet (sorry, can't remember the name but it's only a symptom reliever anyway), and most importantly, he megadosed on silver colloid. Now listen, DO NOT FALL for the ionic crap. It is the COLLOID, not the ionic, that will beat Morgellons. We tried the ionic at twice the price (fell for the hype) and it had no effect. I bought him a ton of things, had him taking homeopathic boron, top of the line chelation, using tons of products to soothe the itching, but it was two things that actually BEAT Morgellons: A decent quality Colloidal Silver (2 teaspoons every 15 minutes for 4 hours - and no, it will NOT turn you blue), COMBINED with a dewormer. The first time we thought we beat it, he only used the silver, and it came back several weeks later. The time he really beat it, he convinced a doctor to give him a script for dewormer. If he had not been able to get the doc to write the script, he was going to go to a feed and seed store and buy a dog dewormer. Yes, it is the same crap, more or less, and no, it will not kill you. You use it just as you would give it to your dog, pound for pound. The swinish doctors will not diagnose your condition. They go to their script: Delusions of Parasitosis. You are on your own, my friend, against black-ops nano-pests. You can bring a wiggling stool sample to the M-Diety and he'll tell you there is nothing there. He'll REFUSE to put it under a glass in your presence. But you can beat it yourself: Megadose on silver colloid and deworm your self immediately after. Watch and see. Hey, hit me back after you are CURED. By the way, not that it matters what brand you use, but the quality/price product we used was Mesosilver. Again, any properly prepared Colloidal Silver will do, but if you want the identical product, it was Mesosilver. One more thing: The same illuminati that gifted you with nano-bugs will do 2 things to keep you sick: Lie to you about argyria, and dazzle you with an array of bogus products with "scienticious" crap-talk. Listen to experience and beat the damned disease.

You receive a 4 oz bottle of 50% concentrate and an empty 4 oz bottle to dilute the concentrate.
One 4 oz bottle 50% concentrate is enough concentrate to make 2 gallons of solution to apply as needed for the relief of skin discomfort associated with skin parasites. That's only $8.50 per gallon.

You can also use 2 cap fulls of concentrate in a bath

Here's a study from 2011 which actually took an oral tissue sample from someone with Morgellons and cultured it a laboratory, with fascinating results:

https://carnicominstitute.org/wp/a-new-form-frequency-induced-disease/

Within 24 hours of culturing the sample in wine, the film in one specific petri dish had exploded into filaments:

(https://carnicominstitute.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/000_0020.jpg)

(https://carnicominstitute.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/000_0019.jpg)
Magnified 3x

(https://carnicominstitute.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/1-1.jpg)
Magnified 10x

That particular petri dish had been placed under lighting in the range of 375-425 nanometers.  As seen from the Wikipedia light spectrum chart below, that nanometer range covers fluorescent (ultraviolet) lighting at the 375 nm end of the spectrum to blue LED lighting at the 425 end, the same light spectrum necessary for the growth of coral.


Color             (nm)
Infrared       >1000    
Red                 700*     
Orange            620*    
Yellow              580*     
Green              530*     
Cyan                500*            
Blue                 470*     
Violet (visible)   420*     
Near ultraviolet  300    
Far ultraviolet  <200

(*Visible spectrum)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color

The study discovered that a combination of two variables broke down the Morgellons fibers:
heat + alkalinity, or specifically in the study, heated lye. 

As discussed in another thread recently, a safe way to introduce lye to the human body is to ingest baking soda stirred into water. 

Question: Might baking soda stirred into heated water be ingested daily to prevent / biodegrade Morgellons fibers?

Once the fibers were degraded, guess what was discovered at their core?

Chlamydia, or something with a very similar structure.

Further testing suggested that Morgellons feeds off of iron, calcium and an acidic environment, the latter of which our modern dietary habits provide.

Conclusions:
This study was performed before the explosion of use of LED's in our homes, but concurrently with broad use of compact fluorescents, before their mercury content was widely known to the public and they began losing market share to LED's.

Blue lighting is not all bad:  It is absolutely necessary for photosynthesis of some plants, while others require red or white light.  A typical grow light will contain all three colors.  And sunlight contains the full spectrum. 

Question:  Might the presence of other colors in full-spectrum lighting prevent cellular response to blue light from growing out of control?

Your post is a good reminder of Morgellons Disease.

A number of Morgellons sufferers have tried many substances to get relief and IIRC, some of them would talk of a mixture of things they would put in their bathwater, and I do recall one or more talking about how they would start to see the fibers coming out in the bathwater.  So they continued the process and managed to get it under control, if not completely gone.

And the woman who had the website morgellonsexposed.com, Jan Smith, a prodigious researcher, has lived with it for more than 10 years, and posted hundreds of photos of things and devices she removed from her own body.

There are so many victims that we could probably read their stories all day and never finish.  But you are right about being alkaline and it does seem a number of the victims mentioned using baking soda.  Some also mentioned using colloidal silver in their bathwater.

R.R. and ilinda, great posts!

I saw a video recently will look for it again so I can post the name and link.
The man stressed the importance of taking baths in a large amount of epsom salts, taking boron tablets, washing clothes with borax DW with borax (Barb side note works great, just throw in white vinegar in the rinse cycle.) For hand dishwashing - use some borax and washing soda and rinse really well.  I put a drain rack in the sink and pour boiling water after I rinse them.

Back to the suggestions and ideas from the video, he emphasized the presence of a layer of fungus on the skin, which goes along with the other weirdnesses.
also he said avoid refined sugar as much as possible. He said the fungus adds to the problems from EMF whether it be from deliberate targeting weaponry or the usual stuff from things in the home.

This seems like a technological advancement over the old Hulda Clark Zapper and even the generic Rife that I have.  Lots more information seems to have been amassed in this area than existed 20 years ago.

Interesting comment that non-contact devices (Rife...) need to be used 20x longer than contact (Zapper...) devices.  That's been my experience too.  And the contact devices are so much less expensive (except for the medically approved Exogen unless obtained second-hand), but fewer settings.

Maybe as long as it's not expensive, it won't matter a lot about the so-called effectiveness, because different Morgellons' sufferers will respond to different things.

From what long-time Morgellons victim and sufferer, Jan Smith, has said, there are foreign genetics inside each sufferer, and those genetics match, in part, some of the gene sequences used in genetic engineering.  She has done decades of research and looked at patents, scientific research, many microorganisms whose genomes were used in genetic engineering, and thus, not all patients will harbor the same exact foreign genetic sequences.

Maybe that's why a mix of colloidal silver, etc., etc., will work on one patient, but another needs a mix of other things, with overlap in reagents, or maybe totally different.  They are all experimenting on themselves, since the mainstream medical community has turned a blind eye to them.  Last year when I went to my dermatologist, I noticed a list of the conditions they treat.  The list is printed on a little pamphlet that they give to new or returning patients. 

The question I have is this:  how is the patient supposed to know if what they have is on the list?  IOW, if the patient knows what they have, they might not need to visit the doctor!   I did notice the absence of Morgellons on the list.

Antibacterial and antioxidant activities of Artemisia annua essential oil.

Fitoterapia. 2002 Oct;73(6):532-5.

Juteau F1, Masotti V, Bessière JM, Dherbomez M, Viano J.

Abstract
The essential oil of Artemisia annua aerial parts, consisting of camphor (44%), germacrene D (16%), trans-pinocarveol (11%), beta-selinene (9%), beta-caryophyllene (9%) and artemisia ketone (3%), was screened for its antimicrobial activity. The essential oil remarkably inhibited the growth of tested Gram-positive bacteria Enterococcus hirae and both tested fungi. This oil has shown an antioxidant activity equivalent to 18% of the reference compound (alpha-tocopherol).

How timely is your post, Barb.  Periodically Artemesia annua shows up in my garden.  I absolutely love the fragrance!  It's almost intoxicating.  This year there are two plants, about 20' apart.  For some reason, saving seeds doesn't seem to yield viable seeds, or maybe I haven't learned the proper way to save this variety.  But fortunately, with careful scrutinizing, I can spot a few plants each year and allow them to grow, then broadcast their own seeds.

Amazing how many health and medical uses there can be for such a wonderfully aromatic plant!

It's good to know that the annual form self-sows that easily Ilinda!

Have been pondering the common name of the perennial form, "wormwood."  That's such an unusual name, and it really only shows up in three places that I'm aware of:

1. astronomy
2. the book of Revelation
3. medicinal botany

That's a pretty strange assortment of origins for that name, and one wonders about a connection...?

One would imagine that the biblical name is the oldest, but am just guessing here.  Also, the wormwood plant, Artemesia absinthium, is called wormwood, presumably because it is used to kill intestinal worms.

Aren't the astronomy and biblical versions references to a celestial appearance of some specific object?

Interestingly, there is another perennial form of Artemesia, although I don't believe it is commonly called wormwood--it's called Southernwood, and OMG it is equally fragrant.  A wonderful plant to have in one's garden.  Just brush past its leaves and you'll know...

These are the three Artemesia with which I'm familiar, (but there are probably many more):
Artemesia abrotanum a.k.a. Southernwood
Artemesia annua a.k.a. Sweet Annie
Artemesia absinthinum a.k.a. Wormwood

As you or Barb mentioned in one or more posts, they have many phytochemicals in common, and probably a number that are unique to each variety.

Years ago I planted Southernwood and it survived until we got goats, then last year got new starts, and placed these small Southernwoods in herb garden which is surrounded by a concrete blocck wall impervious to goats.

Also years ago, got seeds of wormwood and planted that as well, which goats eat, but don't completely destroy, but it was time to start a new stand, also in the herb garden, so now have wormwood and Southernwood in herb garden, away from goats and deer.

A Sweet Annie plant was gifted years ago from friend, and since it seems to reseed, then appear here and there, was glad to see it this year inside a domed cage built specifically to grow veggies away from deer, rabbits, etc.  Interestingly, Sweet Annie will seem to disappear for a year or two then reappear, and I suspect that a few plants usually manage to grow amidst tall grass and drop seeds.  This year, I'll try harder to save seeds so that it can be more trackable.

BTW, a friend who moved to Montana said that wormwood grows wild along some of the highways out there!

It sounds as if you have a stable, perpetual supply of it on your farm Ilinda.  The only time I've ever seen it killed here was last summer, when it seemingly never stopped raining, and the roots just gave up.

The Mennonite family that owns the herb farm not far from here is putting all the plants on sale for around $2 each, and I may get some more to tuck in here and there, wherever I can find some spaces.  Am discovering that I can even put some understory plants in the hen yard itself, as long as they're aromatics, which the poultry seem to leave alone.

HOW TO ELIMINATE MORGELLONS

HOW TO ELIMINATE MORGELLONS
October 18, 2018  by Michael Edwards

When Morgellons disease was first recognized most doctors believed it to be a delusional disorder, that it didn’t exist, that is was most likely a combination of delusional parasitosis and obsessive picking of the skin. Doctors told their patients that Morgellons was all in their head, except for the skin lesions caused by self-abuse. Fortunately, scientists did some research. Recent studies have shown that the filaments accompanying Morgellons are composed of keratin and collagen and that is caused by the proliferation of keratinocytes and fibroblasts in epithelial tissue. Some researchers believe that the cause of this disease is an infection from a tick bite.

The study proved that filaments are not cellulose as found in cotton, linen, or other plant-based textile fibers, or chitin which would indicate fungal cells or insect exoskeletons.

They are biofilaments of human cellular origin produced by epithelial cells and stem from deeper layers of the epidermis, the upper layers of the dermis, and the root sheath of hair follicles.” – NCBI

Though studies are showing that the disease is real, conventional medicine is, of course, slow to acknowledge the disease. Googling “what causes Morgellons disease” gets you this non-answer:

Morgellons disease is a delusional disorder that leads to the belief that one has parasites or foreign material moving in, or coming out of, the skin. Morgellons disease is a little-known disorder that is often associated with nonspecific skin, nerve, and psychiatric symptoms. Some refer to it as a fiber disease.” – MedicineNet.com

But, the next article is titled, Studies show that infections–not delusion–cause Morgellons disease.

Morgellons involves many symptoms common to auto-immune sufferers including:

chronic, severe fatigue
joint pain
neurological problems
memory and cognitive disruptions (including brain fog)
mood changes
crawling sensations on and under the skin
the sensation of itching or biting
skin eruptions or lesions with little black specks on or under the skin
filaments or threads under the skin and erupting from the skin
Morgellons and Lyme disease have a lot in common. Both were thought to be mostly psychosomatic. Both are thought to be transmitted from a tick bite. Both are autoimmune diseases that cause the first four symptoms listed above. Both may be caused by Borrelia spirochetes (corkscrew-shaped bacteria associated with tick-borne diseases). And both can be healed through the same means.

Like many of our readers, I first heard about Morgellons Disease back in 2015 when singer/songwriter Joni Mitchell was hospitalized for the disease. In 2010, she told the Los Angeles Times, “Fibers in a variety of colors protrude out of my skin like mushrooms after a rainstorm: they cannot be forensically identified as animal, vegetable or mineral.”

We published an article about the disease in 2015 and then I received more than a dozen calls and emails asking for help within a couple of months. Within the last few years, I’ve helped teach more than twenty people how to regain their health and rid their body of all Morgellons symptoms. The good news is that every single person was able to eliminate the disease.

I suspected a Morgellons was a fungus. It looks like I was wrong about that. But, whether it’s Lyme, Morgellons, diabetes, cancer, or depression, the only treatment that works is holistic with primary emphasis on gut health. The reason for this is that an unhealthy gut overwhelms the immune system, whereas a healthy immune system (one that is not overwhelmed) can rid the body of almost any disease.

Below is a list of recommended supplements, but the right diet is absolutely imperative. Don’t skimp on the diet!

Morgellons Diet and Supplement Protocol
Here are three articles I put together on diet. This is indicative of how my family eats every single day.

How to Make the Healthiest Smoothies – 4 Recipes
https://www.organiclifestylemagazine.com/how-to-make-the-healthiest-smoothies-4-recipes

We start off with cranberry lemonade and a huge salad every morning. For lunch, we sometimes do a smoothie or we snack on some nuts and/or fruit or we just finish our massive 11-cup salads. For dinner, we always cook from scratch, which takes preparation and time, but it gets easier. Rice and beans, quinoa, lentils, millet, oatmeal, and amaranth are common staples for our cooked meals. We add lots of raw vegetables and herbs to our dinners as well, for instance, the rice and beans go great with chopped tomatoes and avocado, diced onions and garlic, and shredded turmeric and ginger. Eat raw herbs and cooked herbs together for maximum health benefits.

This is truly a lifestyle, not a diet, and it’s one we live every day. You may not need to go to this extreme to rid your body of disease, but I find that most who are dealing with chronic illness need to take it this far, at least for a few months.

The salads are the most important part of this protocol! In fact, they are the most important part of all of my protocols. More than supplements, more than anything save getting enough water, the right kind of salads are imperative. Eat lots of salads with tons of different vegetables and herbs. Make sure they have at least 15 different vegetables and herbs. If you could see what packing your gut with salad does to your ecosystem under a microscope, you’d understand why I’m so passionate about salads. There is nothing more beneficially life-changing than developing a salad habit when the salads are big and diverse and homemade. They do more than any supplement or any other food to clean the intestinal walls of filth and develop a beneficial gut ecosystem. And that is the key to good health. A beneficial gut microbiome is a fortress against undigested proteins and unwanted pathogens. When the gut is not well these intestinal walls allow undigested proteins and pathogens to seep into the bloodstream wrecking havoc on the immune system. Salads feed the right gut microbes and the right microbes build a healthy microbiome.

The cranberry lemonade helps keep the kidneys and liver working optimally. These organs typically get sluggish quickly when lots of pathogens are killed. If salads are #1, this cranberry lemonade is #2, and supplements are a distant #3.

For those with very serious gut issues, legumes and grains will be a no-no for the first few weeks, but when enough salad has been consumed, the gut should be able to reap many benefits from cooked foods like the dinner meals aforementioned.

Sweet fruit should be severely limited, and for the very ill, avoided until the gut is working better. Grapefruit, cranberry, avocado, lime, and lemon do not fall under this category.

Drinking fruit juice, even fresh homemade fruit juice, is not much better for you than refined sugar, so don’t make the common mistake of thinking a fresh-juice fast is going to get you well. It has its benefits, but it doesn’t usually rid the body of chronic disease.

Thanks for posting this, Barb.  Michael Edwards is right on.  I didn't check your links yet, but re supplements, I assume some form of silver is included, as that always seemed to be a common thread among Morgellon;s Disease victims.

Those monster salads do sound really good.

Absolutely nothing is more disheartening and frustrating than to be doing everything you believe to be right, and spending hours a day teaching others about real food and nutrition, while suffering in silence with unexplained joint pain and trying to hide an ever incapacitating limp!

And then at a Weston A. Price conference on nutrition, Sally Fallon casually dropped a ‘precious jewel’ that has given me the promise of a whole new day! A day? (a lifetime?) without the pain, stiffness and inflammation that have become my albatross. I would like to share it with you, because I know that too many people are suffering just like me.

BORON
 is a mineral that is simply an activator. It helps to activate or cause many other functions to happen within the body. Boron is one of the main minerals used in the bone building process. Boron initiates estrogen by helping convert vitamin D into an active state. The estrogen then improves absorption of calcium. Boron also helps metabolism to take place within the bone. With this metabolism properly functioning, osteoporosis is not a major factor to a person’s health. Once osteoporosis sets in, Boron can play a major role in helping the body to replace lost calcium.

Boron also assists in preventing arthritis and tooth decay. Boron is one of the minerals necessary for building and repairing joint cartilage. Boron is essential in maintaining the correct levels of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in the body. Boron helps to regulate hormones, especially estrogen and testosterone. Boron also helps maintain brain function and memory capabilities.

Boron deficiency can cause cell walls to become very weak and fragile, rendering the cells incapable of properly transferring nutrients into them. The body depends on Boron for performing most of its functions. With its interactions with calcium and other minerals…

…Boron is a very important part of a long chain that intertwines all the minerals necessary for individual cell growth and health!

Boron is essential for ALL life in plants as well as animals. Boron is essential for the integrity and function of cell walls and the way signals are transmitted across cellular membranes.

When ingested it reacts with hydrochloric acid in the stomach to form Boric acid, ingested Boron compounds are rapidly and nearly completely excreted with the urine.

Chemical fertilizers inhibit the uptake of Boron from the soil. An organic apple grown in rich soil may have 20 mg Boron, but if grown with fertilizer it may have only 1 mg of Boron. The average intake of Boron in developed countries is only 1-2 mg of Boron per day.

This creates health problems due to Boron deficiency which is now very common, but very few of us know about it.

BORON DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS
Boron is necessary throughout the body with the highest concentration in the parathyroid glands, the bones, joints and the dental enamel. It is essential for healthy bone and joint function, it is responsible for regulating the absorption and metabolism of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.

Some symptoms of Boron deficiency are arthritis, brittle bones, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative joint disease, hormonal imbalance, loss of libido, memory loss, muscle pain, osteoporosis, receding gum, and weak joint cartilage. Boron deficiency causes greatly increased amounts of calcium and magnesium to be lost with the urine.

Boron deficiency causes the parathyroid to become overactive and stressed which causes the glands to release too much parathyroid hormone. Excess parathyroid hormones raise the blood level of calcium by releasing calcium from the bones, joints and teeth into the blood stream. This then leads to osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, spondylitis, gout, lupus, osteoporosis, pyorrhea and tooth decay.

With advancing age high blood levels of calcium lead to calcification of soft tissues causing muscle contractions and stiffness; calcification of the eyes, endocrine glands, especially the pineal gland and the ovaries. Arteriosclerosis, kidney stones, and calcification of the kidneys ultimately leading to kidney failure. When the intracellular calcium levels get too high the cells will die!

Bone analysis has shown that arthritic joints and nearby bones have only half the Boron content of healthy joints. Equally, synovial fluid that lubricates joints and provides nutrients to the cartilage is Boron deficient in arthritic joints.

Arthritis in its various forms and its close relative osteoporosis affect a very large percentage of the population in developed countries. Osteoporosis is responsible for more long-term hospital care than any other individual disease. This is due to the very high incidence of fractures, and especially the protracted nature of hip fractures.

Please note that these ‘casualties’ are a main source of income for the medical-pharmaceutical system!

HEALTH EFFECTS OF BORON
A Boron supplement will reduce the daily loss of calcium by nearly 50%. As this calcium is withdrawn mainly from your bones and teeth, Boron deficiency may be the most important factor in causing arthritis, osteoporosis and tooth decay today.

Boron affects the metabolism of steroid hormones, and especially the sex hormones. Supplementing with Boron increases low testosterone levels in men and estrogen levels in menopausal women. Boron also has an important role in converting vitamin D to its active form, thus increasing the calcium uptake and deposition into the bones and teeth rather than causing soft tissue to calcify. Also other beneficial effects have been reported such as improvement of heart disease, vision, psoriasis, balance, memory and cognition.

A German cancer researcher by the name of Dr. Paul-Gerhard Seeger has shown that cancer commonly starts with the deterioration of cell membranes. Since Boron is essential for cell membranes and Boron deficiency is widespread, this may be an important cause for the initiation of tumor growth. Boron compounds have anti-tumor properties and are “potent anti-osteoporotic, anti-inflammatory, hypolipemic, anti-coagulant and anti-neoplastic agents” (1).

Boron also assists in preventing arthritis and tooth decay. Boron is one of the minerals necessary for building and repairing joint cartilage. Boron is essential in maintaining the correct levels of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in the body. Boron helps to regulate hormones, especially estrogen and testosterone. Boron also helps maintain brain function and memory capabilities.

Boron deficiency can cause cell walls to become very weak and fragile, rendering the cells incapable of properly transferring nutrients into them. The body depends on Boron for performing most of its functions. With its interactions with calcium and other minerals…

…Boron is a very important part of a long chain that intertwines all the minerals necessary for individual cell growth and health!

Boron is essential for ALL life in plants as well as animals. Boron is essential for the integrity and function of cell walls and the way signals are transmitted across cellular membranes.

When ingested it reacts with hydrochloric acid in the stomach to form Boric acid, ingested Boron compounds are rapidly and nearly completely excreted with the urine.

Chemical fertilizers inhibit the uptake of Boron from the soil. An organic apple grown in rich soil may have 20 mg Boron, but if grown with fertilizer it may have only 1 mg of Boron. The average intake of Boron in developed countries is only 1-2 mg of Boron per day.

This creates health problems due to Boron deficiency which is now very common, but very few of us know about it.

BORON DEFICIENCY SYMPTOMS
Boron is necessary throughout the body with the highest concentration in the parathyroid glands, the bones, joints and the dental enamel. It is essential for healthy bone and joint function, it is responsible for regulating the absorption and metabolism of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.

Some symptoms of Boron deficiency are arthritis, brittle bones, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative joint disease, hormonal imbalance, loss of libido, memory loss, muscle pain, osteoporosis, receding gum, and weak joint cartilage. Boron deficiency causes greatly increased amounts of calcium and magnesium to be lost with the urine.

Boron deficiency causes the parathyroid to become overactive and stressed which causes the glands to release too much parathyroid hormone. Excess parathyroid hormones raise the blood level of calcium by releasing calcium from the bones, joints and teeth into the blood stream. This then leads to osteoarthritis and other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, spondylitis, gout, lupus, osteoporosis, pyorrhea and tooth decay.

With advancing age high blood levels of calcium lead to calcification of soft tissues causing muscle contractions and stiffness; calcification of the eyes, endocrine glands, especially the pineal gland and the ovaries. Arteriosclerosis, kidney stones, and calcification of the kidneys ultimately leading to kidney failure. When the intracellular calcium levels get too high the cells will die!

Bone analysis has shown that arthritic joints and nearby bones have only half the Boron content of healthy joints. Equally, synovial fluid that lubricates joints and provides nutrients to the cartilage is Boron deficient in arthritic joints.

Arthritis in its various forms and its close relative osteoporosis affect a very large percentage of the population in developed countries. Osteoporosis is responsible for more long-term hospital care than any other individual disease. This is due to the very high incidence of fractures, and especially the protracted nature of hip fractures.

Please note that these ‘casualties’ are a main source of income for the medical-pharmaceutical system!

HEALTH EFFECTS OF BORON
A Boron supplement will reduce the daily loss of calcium by nearly 50%. As this calcium is withdrawn mainly from your bones and teeth, Boron deficiency may be the most important factor in causing arthritis, osteoporosis and tooth decay today.

Boron affects the metabolism of steroid hormones, and especially the sex hormones. Supplementing with Boron increases low testosterone levels in men and estrogen levels in menopausal women. Boron also has an important role in converting vitamin D to its active form, thus increasing the calcium uptake and deposition into the bones and teeth rather than causing soft tissue to calcify. Also other beneficial effects have been reported such as improvement of heart disease, vision, psoriasis, balance, memory and cognition.

A German cancer researcher by the name of Dr. Paul-Gerhard Seeger has shown that cancer commonly starts with the deterioration of cell membranes. Since Boron is essential for cell membranes and Boron deficiency is widespread, this may be an important cause for the initiation of tumor growth. Boron compounds have anti-tumor properties and are “potent anti-osteoporotic, anti-inflammatory, hypolipemic, anti-coagulant and anti-neoplastic agents” (1).

Picture
The missing Link!
In the 1960’s a soil and plant scientist by the name of Rex Newnham, Ph.D., D.O., N.D, developed arthritis.

He tried conventional drugs but they not help so he looked for answers in the chemistry of plants. He realized that plants in the area in which he lived were mineral deficient. Knowing that Boron aids calcium metabolism in plants he decided to try supplementing with BORAX. Yes, you read it right…Borax. You may find it unimaginable that Borax, the humble insecticide and laundry detergent seems to be the missing link!

Dr. Newnham took 30 mg of Borax per day and in three weeks ALL pain, swelling and stiffness had disappeared!
The chemical names for Borax are Sodium Tetraborate, Disodium Tetraborate Decahydrate, or Sodium Borate.

Chemically it is all the same, it is a naturally occurring mineral commonly mined from dried salt lakes. There is no “food-grade” Borax available or necessary as all Borax is the same and “natural”, it is usually mined in California or Turkey. Borax is commonly used as household cleaner, it is non-toxic and does not contain heavy metals. Pharmaceutical grade is not noticeably purer or better. Borax has antiseptic, antifungal, and antiviral properties but only mild antibacterial action.

Picture

Most of Dr. Rex Newnham’s later research was devoted to the relationship between soil Boron levels and arthritis. He published several scientific papers on Borax and arthritis. One was a double-blind trial in the mid 1980’s at the Royal Melbourne Hospital which showed that 70% of those who completed the trial were greatly improved. There were no negative side-effects reported, some participants reported that their heart ailments had also improved, and there was better general health and more energy. (3)

He told public health and medical school authorities about his discovery but they were more concerned about loss of their own profits and ended up instigating a government law that Boron be declared a poison in any concentration. This resulted in Dr. Newnham being fined and threatened and Borax becoming unavailable in the country in which he lived. Before the national ban, many people with arthritis who heard of Dr. Newnham’s discovery were delighted as they began supplementing with Borax and saw vast improvement. Others were afraid to take something that was being sold to kill cockroaches and ants.

SOIL BORON LEVELS
Dr. Rex Newnham’s research found that the traditional sugarcane islands, due to long-term heavy use of fertilizers, have very low soil Boron levels. Jamaica has the lowest level of soil Boron and the arthritis rates of the population are 70%, he noted that even most of their dogs were limping.

The Mauritius islands off the southeast coast of Africa have very low Boron levels and 50% of the populations suffers with arthritis. The daily Boron intake in these countries is less than 1 mg/day.

An interesting comparison is between India and the native Fijians. The Indians are estimated to have an arthritis rate of 40% and eat much rice grown with fertilizer while the native Fijians with an estimated arthritis rate of 10% and eat mainly starchy root vegetables grown without fertilizer.

The US, England, Australia and New Zealand generally have average soil-Boron levels with an estimated intake of 1 to 2 mg of Boron and arthritis rates of approximately 20%.

Israel has some of the best soil in the world and a very high Boron content, with an estimated daily Boron intake of 5 to 8 mg. An independent survey in 1978-1980 at Kaplan Hospital showed arthritis for the whole country to be less than 1%.


Carnarvon in Western Australia has high Boron levels both in the soil and water, and the arthritis rate is only 1%.

It is similar to a place named Ngawha Springs in New Zealand which has very high Boron levels in the spa water and is acclaimed as a curative for arthritis. A hotel in Ngawha has a collection of wheelchairs and crutches that were left behind by people who no longer needed them when they left to go home after their stay there. Incidentally ALL SPAS reputedly curing arthritis have very high Borax levels.

You may have read about green lipped mussel extract from New Zealand that is claimed to relieve arthritis pain and other symptoms. These mussels were gathered from a volcanic island with vents under the sea. The NZ mussels have absorbed Boron from the sea; that is the secret to their healing properties. Mussels gathered from other areas do not have the same effect because they lack Boron.

SUPPLEMENTING WITH BORAX
Dr. Newnham’s research proved that after Borax supplementation an individual’s bones were much harder and stronger. With additional Boron, bone fractures healed in half the normal time in both man and animal. Horses and dogs with broken legs, and even a broken pelvis, fully recovered. A young girl, aged 9 months, with juvenile arthritis was supplemented with Boron and she was essentially ‘cured’ by Dr. Newnham in 2 weeks.

Rex Newnham’s research indicates that generally people are healed from their arthritis pain, swelling and stiffness in approximately 1 to 3 months.

He also stated that many patients with arthritis commonly experienced a Herxheimer reaction, which is an early aggravation of symptoms with increased pain for a short period of time (you may feel worse before you feel better). It is commonly due to toxins being released by killed Candida and mycoplasma. This is very common with antimicrobial therapy, and borax definitely is an exceptionally good and strong fungicide. Dr. Newnham regarded Herxheimer as a good prognostic sign indicating that the body was healing.

It has been estimated that 55% of Americans over the age of 50 have osteoporosis and of these approximately 80% are women. Worldwide 1 in 3 women and 1 in 12 men over the age of 50 have osteoporosis, and this is responsible for millions of fractures each year. In scientific studies Rats with osteoporosis were given a Boron supplement for 30 days with the result that their bone quality was then comparable with that of the healthy control group and of a group supplemented with estradiol (6).

The beneficial effect of Boron on bones seems to be due to two interrelated effects: a higher Boron content of the bones which makes them harder, and a normalization of sex hormones which stimulates the growth of new bone. Low estrogen levels after menopause are thought to be the main reason why so many older women develop osteoporosis. In men testosterone levels decline more gradually which seems to be reflected in their later onset of osteoporosis as a group.

Research has now shown that Boron supplementation in postmenopausal women doubles the blood level of the most active form of estrogen, 17-beta estradiol, to the level found in much younger women. Equally, the blood levels of testosterone more than doubled (7). Boron appears to BALANCE the levels of sex hormones. With ConventionalSynthetic Hormone Replacement Therapy there is a higher risk of breast or endometrial cancer which is NOT known to happen with hormones produced by the body as with Boron supplementation or with Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy.

Breast cancer is related to calcifications in the breast. Tests have shown that it is important to normalize the calcium-magnesium metabolism and cellular membrane functions within the body in order to reduce the risks of breast cancer.

A recent study in younger men (29 – 50) showed that the level of free testosterone (the form that matters most) had risen by one third after a daily supplementation borax for one week (8). This may be of special interest for bodybuilders. Research with Boron has shown that elevated testosterone levels are beneficial by shrinking prostate tumors and PSA levels, PSA being a marker for tumors and inflammation in the prostate gland.

Significantly improved memory and cognition in both sexes of elderly individuals may be partly due to increased levels of sex hormones and to improved membrane functions of the brain cells (9).

FUNGI AND FLUORIDE
Being such an excellent fungicide it is not surprising that Borax is being successfully used to treat Candida overgrowth. There is a great deal of interesting information on an Earth Clinic forum called Borax Cures (10). Many contributors have written that it has completely cured or greatly helped them.

In normal healthy conditions Candida exists as harmless oval yeast cells. When challenged, chains of elongated cells called pseudohyphae develop, and finally strongly invasive long, narrow and tube-like filaments called hyphae. These damage the intestinal wall, and cause inflammation and Leaky Gut Syndrome.

Pseudohyphae and hyphae can be seen in the blood of individuals with cancer and autoimmune diseases. Candida can also form tough layers of biofilm. This same study shows that Borax inhibits the formation of biofilms and also the transformation of harmless yeast cells into invasive hyphal form. Other articles have shown that this process, commonly initiated by antibiotics, is a basic cause of most of our modern diseases, and this makes Borax and Boron primary health remedies. Boron is also used to remove accumulated fluoride and heavy metals from the body(14).

Fluoride not only causes bones and joints to deteriorate, but also the pineal gland to calcify and the thyroid gland to become underactive. Borax reacts with fluoride ions to form Boron fluorides which are then excreted in the urine.

While in good health and especially in younger years a calcium – magnesium ratio of 2:1 is normal and beneficial. But with increasing age, Boron deficiency and resulting disease conditions we REQUIRE progressively less calcium but more magnesium.

Boron is an important regulator of cell membrane functions, especially in regard to movements of calcium and magnesium. In Boron deficiency an excessive amount of calcium moves into the cell while magnesium is unable to move inside to displace the calcium.

This is the condition of old age; and all of the symptoms of boron-deficiency diseases leading up to it.

For Boron to be fully effective in reversing tissue calcification ample magnesium is required. For older individuals 400 to 600 mg of magnesium together with the daily Boron supplementation spaced out during the day. However, the correct form of oral Magnesium must be taken to avoid the usual laxative effect.

Sources strongly doubt whether calcium supplements are needed or even beneficial, even in case of osteoporosis. Tests show that most individuals have plenty of calcium (stored in their soft tissues where it does not belong), and supplementing Boron and Magnesium redeposit this misplaced calcium directly into bones.

Research has shown that the medical focus on high CALCIUM supplemental
intake is a prescription for ACCELERATED AGING…

…we CAN actually turn ourselves into ‘a walking coral reef’!

Long-standing severe calcification buildup cannot be redistributed in a short period of time while on Boron supplementation. Increased calcium levels in affected areas such as the hips and shoulders may cause problems for a considerable time, such as a tendency to severe cramping and pain, or problems with the blood circulation, or nerve transmission. Higher amounts of calcium and fluoride passing through the kidneys may cause temporary kidney pain. Further, kidney pain appears to be mainly due to kidney stones being released, after a few days when the stones are cleared the pain usually stops.

Such healing reactions cannot be avoided when aiming for a higher level of health, but they can be minimized by increasing boron levels only gradually. Whenever you experience an unpleasant effect reduce or temporarily stop boron intake until the problem subsides. Then gradually start increasing again. Helpful additional measures are a greatly increased fluid intake, using more organic acids such as lemon juice or vinegar, and improving lymph flow as with rebounding, walking or inverted positions.

WHAT AND HOW MUCH TO USE….here is where it clearly becomes a personal choice.
Like MANY other people, Sally Fallon the President and Founder of The Weston A. Price Organization, takes pure BORAX dissolved in water, [as I have detailed below], and has benefited greatly and reports excellent results. I too began to supplement with Borax and was experiencing much pain relief of my arthritis in a short period of time but I also began to experience gastrointestinal distress. (Perhaps I was taking too much, I was unable to find an amount of Borax that my body did not react to. I was forced to stop taking Borax.)

Signs of taking too much Borax are not being hungry, nausea, vomiting, lethargy, dermatitis and diarrhea. If you stop taking it for a day or so all of these symptoms will go away. The antidote for Boron toxicity is to consume extra B2.

Boron TABLETS can be bought from health shops or the Internet, commonly with 3 mg of Boron per tablet. While suitable as a general Boron supplement, it is not known if or how well Boron tablets work, Chelated Minerals are only 40% absorbable in the body. Most scientific studies and individual experiences in regard to arthritis, osteoporosis, or sexual hormones and menopause were with pure Ionic Borax.  It is not yet known if non-ionic Boron tablets are as effective as Borax…

Ditto--thanks so much for all this relevant and important information on boron, a usually overlooked element.

A few years ago I had read that boron is helpful in preventing osteoporosis, something mentioned in your long post above, so I wanted to eat the foods which contain boron rather than take pills, so research showed that dried plums, or prunes, are a good source of boron.

So I bought a large bag of organic, dried plums/pruneds and the recommended dose for osteoporosis prevention was 9 prunes per day.  I tried that, but very shortly I began getting headaches if I ate the 9 prunes per day.  So the rather tasty prunes are in my freezer right now, and maybe I should try 2 per day.  Maybe a few is better than none.+

That's good info - I love prunes.  Your headache might be in response to the sugar dump maybe, causing Candida to produce a migraine?  If so, a strong probiotic and a gram of biotin might mitigate this, as well as butterbur.

Two a day sounds like a good compromise, at least to start with.

ilinda, glad you mentioned all this.
I also love prunes, going to incorporate them into my diet again...
As far as the headache, i think the article mentioned a herx reaction is possible...
Many years ago I was aggressively detoxing I would get pains in lower abdomen, head and once or twice i nearly passed out. The alternative health lab told me to cut down on the mount of lemon in my water temporarily. Also read that squash and other bland foods are good for herx... will post more. Tiger cat has claimed my office chair...

NOTES ON MORGELLONS SYNDROME

Patient Information and Notes from the Institute for Molecular Medicine and
the Morgellons Research Foundation

Morgellons syndrome or ‘fiber’ disease has been characterized by unusual skin wounds, fibers and specks that appear to be extruded from the skin along with peripheral neuropathies that are described as itching or crawling feeling under the skin. According to the Morgellons Research Foundation (http://www.morgellons.org/casedef.html), Morgellons can be characterized by six major signs and symptoms:

1. Skin lesions, both spontaneously appearing and self-generated, with intense itching. The former may initially appear as “urticarial-like” (commonly called “hives”), or as “pimple-like” with or without a white center. The latter appear as linear or “picking” excoriations. Even when not self-generated, lesions often progress to open wounds that heal abnormally and usually incompletely. (e.g., heal very slowly with discolored epidermis or seal over with a thick gelatinous outer layer.)

2. Crawling sensations, both within and on the skin surface. Often conceptualized by the patient as “bugs moving, stinging or biting” intermittently. Besides the general dermis, may also involve the scalp, nares (nostrils), ear canal, and body hair or hair follicles. The sensations are at times related to the presence of easily seen insects, arthropods, and other human and non-human associated parasites that require serious attention from the treating clinician.

3. Fatigue and weakness significant enough to interfere with the activities necessary for daily living.

4. Cognitive difficulties, including measurable short term memory and attention deficit, as well as difficulty processing thoughts correctly. Described by patients as "brain fog".

5. Behavioral effects are common in many patients. Many have been or will be diagnosed as Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, or Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Almost all, if previously seen by well-read physicians without prolonged observation, will have been labeled as “Delusional Parasitosis”. A temporal relationship to skin lesion onset is not known.

6. Presence of “Fibers” in and on skin lesions. They are generally described by patients as white or black, but clinicians and patients also report seeing blue, green, red, and other fibers, that fluoresce when viewed under ultraviolet light (Wood's lamp). Objects described as “granules”, similar in size and shape to sand grains, can occasionally be removed from either broken or intact skin by physicians, but are also commonly reported by patients. Patients report seeing black “specks” or “dots” on or in their skin, as well as unusual 1-3 mm “fuzzballs” both in their lesions and on (or falling from) intact skin.

Other signs and symptoms include: changes in visual acuity, balance problems, bloating and swelling of legs, neurological symptoms, including changes in mood and personality, painful extremities, tinnitus, gastrointestinal symptoms, skin sores that do not heal, changes in skin pigmentation and texture and other changes, arthralgias or arthritis-like symptoms, sinus problems, breathing problems and chronic infections (Borrelia burgdorfi or Lyme Borrelia, Mycoplasma species, among others) or skin parasites. Also, in some patients small, sometimes colored, dart-like structures have been removed from under the skin. In addition, many patients have co-morbid conditions, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia Syndrome or Sarcoidosis. Often patients with the Morgellons Syndrome are thought to be delusional, or they are accused of self-inflicted skin lesions. Thus obtaining appropriate medical assistance is often a challenge, because most practicing physicians have little knowledge of new or emerging illnesses that may be outside of mainstream medicine.
Although the cause of Morgellons is unknown, it is thought to contain several elements of known microorganisms. Similar to Lyme disease, Morgellons likely includes several types of unusual infections, including bacterial (Mycoplasma, Borrelia, etc.), parasitic (a previously unknown parasite has been found), fungal and even insect (for example, the extruded material from some patients appears to be similar to chitin, a very tough mainly polysaccharide material).
Patients who do not have medical assistance or are trying to augment the treatment they are receiving may want to consider the following information below developed from anecdotal studies and patient feedback. The regimen described is only suggested for patients, and it is intended for long-term use and requires daily maintenance. The suggestions below may or may not help suppress your Morgellons, and the information is not intended to replace a physician’s care or instructions. There is no known cure for Morgellons, and new information in the future may change the suggestions below.
This suggested regime must be adjusted to individual patients, the stage of the illness and comorbid conditions. Consult with your physician in order to determine the most favorable approach. Recovery from Morgellons is very gradual and varies from patient to patient. Often patients’ signs and symptoms become worse before they slowly get better. The first treatment consideration is general diet and dietary supplements.

1. Diet is important. Most patients do not consider diet important, but it is quite important in all chronic illnesses. The Institute for Molecular Medicine has posted some dietary advice on its website under Treatment Considerations (http://www.immed.org/). In Morgellons Disease an alkaline diet is important.

2. Vitamins and Minerals are imperative. Most chronic illness patients are deficient in Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C, Coenzyme Q-10, among others. Information is listed in the first document in the publications section of Treatment Considerations (http://www.immed.org/).
Since some vitamins can interfere with uptake and action of certain drugs, they should not be taken at the same time of day as other medications, such as antibiotics or other drugs.

3. Immune Enhancement should be considered. There are various supplements available that can boost your immune system. The Institute for Molecular Medicine has posted some information on immune enhancement supplements that you can purchase over the counter (OTC). They are listed in the first document in the publications section on Treatment Considerations (http://www.immed.org/). Ask your physician if certain supplements may interfere with medications that you are currently taking.

4. Lipid Replacement Therapy is important for fatigue and mitochondrial function. The Institute for Molecular Medicine has conducted several clinical trials on the use of Lipid Replacement Therapy to reduce fatigue and restore mitochondrial function, which is important for general health and recovery from chronic illnesses. Publications on this topic using NTFactor and other lipid replacement products can be found in the publications section of Treatment Considerations (http://www.immed.org/).

5. Antibiotics have helped patients. Although Morgellons is not caused by bacteria alone,
bacterial co-infections are extremely likely with this condition. Patients have benefited from tetracyclines, such as doxycycline, along with other antibiotics. Many MD patients test positive for Lyme Disease, caused by Borrelia b., Mycoplasma spp., among other infections (Chlamydia pneumoniae. Thus an antibiotic regimen has proved useful to suppress system wide signs and symptoms and neurological problems. Some patients have also used anti-parasitic medications.

6. Some Natural Remedies are useful. These are often the same as those used in patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia Syndrome and can be found in the first document in the publications section on Treatment Considerations (http://www.immed.org/). In addition, green coffee extract (http://vitanetonine.com) has been reported as useful. Ask your physician if certain supplements may interfere with medications that you are currently taking.

7. Probiotics are a requirement for recovery from chronic illnesses. These are important in
restoring gut flora and helping with digestion and maintenance of the gastrointestinal system. Some are listed in the first document in the publications section on Treatment Considerations
(http://www.immed.org/).

8. Pain and sleep medications will help you sleep if relaxation activities are insufficient.

9. Ample pure water is essential. It is important to keep hydrated with bottled water.

10. Eliminate alcohol, caffeinated products and excess sugar from your diet. These interfere with the therapy and generally make your condition worse.

11. Remove biofilm (optional). Foreign matrix material under the skin can be slowly broken up with agents that dissolve biomatrix, such as formed by bacteria or parasites. These matrix materials protect the microorganism from immune attack and drug treatment, so their removal is thought to help patients with conditions of foreign biofilm and infections. Metal and salt chelators, such as EDTA, have been used to break up biofilm, and a useful and safe product for this is Detoxamin EDTA suppositories (www.detoxamin.com) used every other night.

Once you have begun to follow the general dietary recommendations, it’s time to consider some specific recommendations for Morgellons. This condition should be considered contagious, although this has not been proven, it may be capable of spreading to family members and pets. It should be considered parasitic, but a known parasite has not been identified in Morgellons.
Worm-like forms have been removed from lesions, but their role in the illness has not been confirmed. They may contribute to the sensation of insects crawling under the skin. It may also involve other co-infections, such as Lyme Borrelia b., Mycoplasma species or other bacterial infections. It may also involve fungal co-infections. Morgellons affects multiple organs and tissues, and there is no simple, single treatment that is effective.

The Second Consideration is that there are important hygienic suggestions that must be
followed
. Please consider following the suggestions below.

1. Clean everything with strong cleaners, such as Pinesol or Lysol. If you have a dishwasher, use this to wash and sanitize personal items. Clean surfaces and even door knobs with Pinesol or other cleaners.

2. Wash clothes daily with detergent and bleach. Linens, pillowcases, mattress covers and sheets should be changed and cleaned daily. Flannel is a comfortable alternative. Use Borax with detergent in the wash.

3. Try to keep as dry as possible. Moisture appears to worsen the condition. Use baths only to clean the skin lesions and then only with sea salt, Epsom salt with medicated soap. Moisture control in containers around the house and air purifiers help keep the environment dry. Also, try to keep autos, yard, garage, etc. as dry as possible.

4. Do not use lotions or perfumes; instead, use acne products for skin treatments. Lotions or perfumes tend to spread the condition to uninvolved areas. Instead, use Neutrogena Rapid Clear acne treatment pads, Isotrex gel topical acne treatment (containing isotretinoin,
http://www.walgreens.com/). Hand sanitizer gels should be used when removing debris in sores.
Medicated soaps should be used, or soaps such as Dead Sea salt soap for acne or Dettol bar soap
(http://www.carbolicsoap.com/dettol).

5. Keep hair away from your body, even when washing your hair, and shampoo with Dawn dishwashing detergent or a medicated shampoo. If you can’t use medicated shampoo, try Tresemmé Deep Cleansing Shampoo with vitamin C and conditioner or Jojoba Shampoo plus conditioner (Millcreek botanicals, http://www.millcreekboticals.com/). At night a thickening spray can be used, such as made by Pantene. Avoid contact hair with others to minimize chance of spreading the condition.

6. Use latex gloves if your hands are infected, and do not touch uninfected skin with your bare hands. Use Zim’s Advanced Wound Care gel (http://www.bizrate.com/) or Dr. Bonner’s Hemp Lavender or Hemp Peppermint soap for washing exposed skin (http://www.drbronner.com/).

7. Treat pets, if necessary, because they can contract the condition. Medicate with antiparasites and antibiotics, if necessary.

8. Remove carpets, if necessary, and maintain a clean, dry environment. Change air filters often. Patients diagnosed with bacterial co-infections should be treated with antibiotics. For the types of intracellular bacterial co-infections found in Morgellons patients, long-term antibiotics are usually necessary. In addition, patients with fungal co-infections should be treated with antifungal drugs. The Institute for Molecular Medicine has posted some information on antibiotics, anti-virals and anti-fungal drugs. These are prescribed by a physician. They are listed in the first document in the publications section on Treatment Considerations (http://www.immed.org/).
Ask your physician if certain antimicrobials may interfere with medications that you are
currently taking.

Next is a list some of some common commercial products that will help. Keep in mind,
however, they may not work for everyone. You may have to come up with a mix that will work well for your needs. There is no known cure for Morgellons, so these are only suggestions that could help improve your condition.

1. Directly treat skin sores with a Calamine spray (Band-Aid, http://www.amazon.com/).
Leave the product on as long as possible, and do not rub it into the skin. Also, colloidal silver can be used directly on lesions. Betadine antiseptic solution is a good broad-spectrum antiseptic (http://www.brucemedical.com/) and hand (gel) sanitizers can be used on sores and keep hands clean.

2. Skin can be treated with acne products or medicated soaps. Some examples are Sapoderm soap (http://shopping.ninemsn.com.au/), Dettol soap (www.amazon.com) oatmeal soap, Clear Skin for acne and especially African Black Soap by Nubian Heritage (http://www.iherb.com/).
Combinations of Dettol and African Black Soap are helpful. Do not rub your skin—lather and rinse. Use towels only once, and then wash them. Hand (gel) sanitizers can be used to keep skin clean. After cleaning, a lotion or cream containing vitamin C should be applied, especially at bedtime, or a lotion containing cranberry seed oil (http://www.fruitessentials.com/).

3. Cover open skin sores with a loose bandage (Band-Aid, decompression strips, Hytape
surgical tape, etc.) and keep them dry.

4. Remove any fibrous or worm-like material with an alcohol-treated tweezers and use facial tissues. Do not contaminate other skin areas with materials removed from your skin and use hand (gel) sanitizers after removing debris to keep skin clean and sanitized.

5. Treat sinus problems with a cold medication, such as Dristan, Allerest, Actifed, etc. Do not use nasal sprays.

6. Treat skin and muscle pain. A variety of pain products and muscle relaxers are available,
such as Advil PM, Doan’s backache nighttime, Loratab or Flexril.

7. If you have trouble breathing, try a bronchodilator such as Primatene Mist
(http://www.primatene-mist.us.com/).

8. Avoid mucous build-up. Using decongestants, brochodilators and expectorants (mucous thinners), such as Actifed, NyQuil Sinus, Primatene Tablets or Mucinex
(http://www.mucinex.com), keeps mucous from building up in the throat and lungs.

9. Examine feet often and treat shoes and feet to prevent foot problems.

10. Keep your nails short and clean. Often anti-fungals are necessary.

11. Make sure that your eyes are clear and clean. Eye drops, such as Zaditor or Naphcon A are available at local drug stores, and can be used to keep eyes clear.

11. Clean your ears. Use Hylands Earache drops to remove particles from ears
(http://www.walgreens.com/)

13. Baths must be carefully considered. Fill tub with very hot water and add 2 cups of Epsom salt or magnesium sulfate or Dead Sea salt with White Tea Bath Leaves
(http://www.webvitamins.com/) and immerse for 10-20 minutes to open pores (without getting your hair wet). Then add 3 16 oz bottles of 3% hydrogen peroxide and continue soaking until the water begins to cool. Rinse before drying.

14. Women have special needs because of periods and other problems. Yeast infections are common, and Betadine iodine douches (http://www.brucemedical.com/) and Monistat vaginal cream are useful. Also, women are prone to bone loss, and bone-building products should be considered.
There are websites where information on Morgellons and related conditions is shared by patients, such as http://www.skinparasites.com/, http://www.lymebusters.com/,
http://www.biologyonline.org/ , http://www.morgellons-research.org/morgellons/

There are also sites where good antiseptic products can be obtained: http://www.mfasco.com

Yowbarb Note: NIH - National Institute of Health 2014 article.

A couple of key paragraphs, These are not in order:
...https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3257881/

Filament formation associated with spirochetal infection: a comparative approach to Morgellons disease
Marianne J Middelveen and Raphael B Stricker

Most patients have been diagnosed with psychiatric or psychosomatic illness, and report that physicians are dismissive and attribute lesions to delusional parasitosis and self-mutilation

There is strong evidence that Morgellons is not a delusional disease.20,25 Fibers are found under unbroken skin, indicating that they are not self-inflicted. Because they are not self-implanted textile fibers, they must be produced within the skin. The lack of detectible pathogens in lesions suggests also that fibers are human cell products.20,25 Keratinocytes are the cells most likely to produce these fibers. They are the predominant cells found in skin, and they are found in hair follicles. Fibers have been found embedded in and piercing skin, and they have been observed growing out of hair follicles. Recently we examined patterns of fiber formation in patients with Morgellons disease, and we found that these fibers possess physical and microscopic characteristics of keratin, often with elaborate shapes and reflected colors

There is a connection between Morgellons disease and Lyme disease, because the majority of patients with Morgellons disease demonstrate serological reactivity with B. burgdorferi proteins in Western blots20,25 or have a high probability of a Lyme disease diagnosis based on meeting defined criteria for the diagnosis.25 In addition, Morgellons disease is associated with positive serological evidence of coinfecting tick-borne pathogens, such as Babesia spp, Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Ehrlichia chaffeensis, and Bartonella henselae.25 Further evidence of a bacterial etiology is the fact that patients with Morgellons disease respond to antibiotic therapy

Paraphrased:
[There can be a connection between BBD Bovine Digital Disease and Morgolllens. Also can be a connection between a plant pathogen which can infect non plant species, Agrobacterium]

The fact that unusual fiber or filament production is associated with spirochetal infection in BDD might suggest that a similar process is involved in Morgellons disease. Patients with Morgellons disease have evidence of spirochetal infection demonstrated by serological reactivity to B. burgdorferi antigens, clinical Lyme diagnosis, and symptoms consistent with Lyme disease. Both BDD and Morgellons disease appear to have a multifactorial etiology involving spirochetes and coinfecting pathogens. They are both emerging, rapidly spreading diseases

Yowbarb Note -

2016 article shows a connection between Lyme disease, Borrelia Burgdorferi bacteria      and Morgellons. Here is a link to that article:
https://www.lymedisease.org/new-studies-morgellons/

"The cause of Morgellons disease has been the topic of heated debate. Many medical professionals believe that the disease is not a true somatic illness and maintain that it is the result of delusional beliefs. In 2013 an international group of scientists contradicted this theory, finding Borrelia spirochetes (corkscrew-shaped bacteria associated with tick-borne disease) in skin samples of 4 patients (1) followed by a larger study in 2015 (2). Despite this evidence the medical community at large has been slow to acknowledge the association between Morgellons disease and Borrelia infection."

Link to an April 2019 article, and paragraph about a trio of antibiotics which kill the Borrelia bacteria and offer hope for Morgellons sufferers.
https://medicalxpress.com/news/2019-04-three-antibiotic-cocktail-persister-lyme-    bacteria.html
    "The scientists found that a combination of three antibiotics—daptomycin, doxycycline
    and ceftriaxone—cleared the Lyme infection in the study mice. The scientists now hope
    to test the combination in people with persistent Lyme disease."

This article says certain essential oils kill "persister" bacteria in Lyme disease
 https://medicalxpress.com/news/2018-12-essential-oils-garlic-herbs-persister.html

Researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Researcher Zhang

...In 2015, they reported that a three-antibiotic combination—doxycycline, cefoperazone and daptomycin—reliably killed Lyme persister bacteria in lab dish tests. In a 2017 study they found that essential oils from oregano, cinnamon bark, clove buds, citronella and wintergreen killed stationary phase Lyme bacteria even more potently than daptomycin, the champion among tested pharmaceuticals.

In the new study Zhang and his team extended their lab-dish testing to include 35 other essential oils, and found 10 that show significant killing activity against stationary phase Lyme bacteria cultures at concentrations of just one part per thousand. At this concentration, five of these oils, derived respectively from garlic bulbs, allspice berries, myrrh trees, spiked ginger lily blossoms successfully killed all stationary phase Lyme bacteria in their culture dishes in seven days, so no bacteria grew back in 21 days.

Oils from thyme leaves, cumin seeds and amyris wood also performed well, as did cinnamaldehyde, the fragrant main ingredient of cinnamon bark oil.

Barb Note: To sum it up, essential oils from these substances killed the heck out of the borrealia bacteria:
GARLIC BULBS
ALLSPICE
MYRRH
SPIKED GINGER LILY BLOSSOMS
THYME LEAVES
CUMIN SEEDS
AMYRIS WOOD
CINNAMALDEHYDE   

There were supposed to be ten oils so I have to read deeper into the source article... - Barb T.

Barb Note, these are excerpts from two articles about B5, pantothenic acid:
...
.
https://www.makewell.de/3532-what-is-pantothenic-acid-and-how-can-it-help-morgellons-patients/?lang=en

WHAT IS PAN­TO­THE­NIC ACID AND HOW CAN IT HELP MOR­GEL­LONS PA­TI­ENTS?
15. August 2019 by Amy Balog

...Pantothenic acid is also crucial for the healthy growth and maintenance of skin and hair. Panthenol or pro-vitamin B5 is a compound made from pantothenic acid, and it has a broad range of cosmetic applications. It serves as an important ingredient in a lot of skin and hair products due to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and hydrating properties.

Can Pan­to­the­nic Acid Tre­at Mor­gel­lons Di­sea­se?
Your adrenal glands require pantothenic acid in order to be able to produce some essential hormones, such as cortisol. Vitamin B5 also has an antioxidant effect and helps reduce inflammation in the body, together with bioflavonoids, vitamin C and healthy omega fats.

Moreover, pantothenic acid plays a vital role in the process of building up and breaking down fats, carbohydrates and proteins in all tissues. It helps release energy from food and contributes to the production of disease-fighting antibodies. However, it requires vitamins A, B3, B6, B9 and B12 in order to function properly.

Pantothenic acid can support the skin’s ability to regenerate. Research has shown that it can aid the healing of wounds and sores by boosting collagen production and reducing inflammation. So it’s easy to see a potentially beneficial link between pantothenic acid and Morgellons disease – patients may benefit from taking dietary supplements containing pantothenic acid. If the slow-healing sores are caused by bacteria, these supplements can complement the use of antibiotics in the treatment of the infection. Due to its anti-inflammatory effect, the vitamin may also help in the management of the autoimmune symptoms of Lyme disease.

MakeWell is one of few manufacturers of nutritional supplements covering Morgellons disease and specifically, wound healing. The product MRG derm combines extracts from black cumin, gotu kola and pantothenic acid to support wound healing in Morgellons patients. It may also be combined with other anti-parasitic remedies to tackle Morgellons disease.

https://www.nutri-facts.org/en_US/nutrients/vitamins/b5/sources.html

Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is available in a variety of foods, usually present as coenzyme A (CoA) or phosphopantetheine (20). Liver and kidney, yeast, egg yolk, broccoli, peanuts, fish, shellfish, chicken, milk, yogurt, legumes, mushrooms, avocado, and sweet potatoes are good sources of vitamin B5 (20, 21).May 29, 2017

VITAMIN B5 // PANTOTHENIC ACID
Sources of Vitamin B5
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is available in a variety of foods, usually present as coenzyme A (CoA) or phosphopantetheine (20). Liver and kidney, yeast, egg yolk, broccoli, peanuts, fish, shellfish, chicken, milk, yogurt, legumes, mushrooms, avocado, and sweet potatoes are good sources of vitamin B5 (20, 21).

Whole grains are major sources of pantothenic acid, but processing and refining grains may result in a 35% to 75% loss (21). Freezing and canning of foods result in similar losses (12).

Some vitamin B5 is synthesized by the intestinal bacteria that normally colonize the human colon (‘large intestine’).  The uptake of biotin and pantothenic acid in cultured colon cells by a specialized transporter suggests that humans may be able to absorb intestinal produced pantothenic acid and biotin. However, it is not yet known to which extent bacterial synthesis contributes to pantothenic acid intake in humans  (16, 34).

Supplements commonly contain pantothenol, a more stable alcohol derivative, which is rapidly converted to pantothenic acid by humans. Calcium and sodium D-pantothenate, the calcium and sodium salts of pantothenic acid, are also available as supplements (4, 21). Pantethine, a disulfid derivate of pantothenic acid, is applied as cholesterol-lowering agent in Japan and as dietary supplement in the US (21).

Yowbarb Note: Makewell is a website originating in Germany. This article discusses foods and also again, the link between lyme and morgellons...but the main emphasis is what can you add to the diet which will help. The article acknowledges not everyone can tolerate the mik, tomatoes, or even the legumes. Positive for lyme, means may not be able to consume legumes. (assume they mean digestive situations, not sure.) Article also has some other ideas for Morgellons and supplements sold on the site - "the MRG derm product, for example, contains black cumin, centella asiatica extract and pantothenic acid to improve and quicken skin healing."

Yes.  And also, more nutrition getting to the cells everywhere.  It is interesting that the symptoms of parasites is nearly identical to the symptoms of pre-diabetes.  I am guessing that the basic cause is the same; lack of nutrition to the cells.

Note from Barb: Links to a blog, products and a free book download below...
Excerpts from Richard Kuhns B.S.Ch.E., author   Richard <knic2@verizon.net>
...
If you have some of the symptoms that accompany relentless itching from under the skin such as:
► filaments and or organisms growing or coming from your skin
► colored specs or a cotton/lint like substance in bedding and clothing
► non healing lesions
► black goo,
► invisible things around your ankles and lower legs that itch and bite
► unexplained nodules under the skin
then you are dealing with serious skin parasites that can ruin your life, if they haven't already.

As you probably know, there are many many experts who claim to have the answer and maybe you've already consulted with most of them.

I am a former sufferer of skin parasites who has been helping others get their lives back for twenty years. I wrote the first book about the subject in 2006 and have revised it 8 times since then as new information becomes available.

The crux of my program is the King Diet™. It's an anti inflammatory, low glycemic, low phosphate specific diet to support immune functioning and health. If you have any doubt about this, do what I did: eat only eggs with real butter for three days and you're symptoms will subside. Or fast for three days drinking only water, and symptoms will subside, or only have bone broth (no additives) with celery, bell peppers, and onion for three days. Chapter IV is where I would start reading the book.

The second obvious thing to do is to disinfect to keep from being reinfected using a common house hold disinfectant like ammonia. And that's in Chapter III.

The third is to clean debris out of your skin so it can function more normally and this is where or Nature's Gift™ Debriding Soap comes into play. If you've already ordered it, you probably noticed that just by doing the above two things you had already reduced skin issues by the time you received the debriding soap. The debriding soap will now accelerate your progress.

If you did not order, no fret. Start with the diet and disinfection in Chapters IV and III, respectively, of my book. Click here or go to
 http://debridingsoap.com/Free%20Book%20Download.html
to download my book now and you'll notice that you'll feel better within a few days.  And, while you're there, subscribe to my updates. All funds go to provide products to the needy who have lost everything--home, job, and savings--because their doctors didn't know how to treat them. But, the updates are far more valuable to you as they provide you with uplifting information about how to get your life back from skin parasites.

Familiarize yourself with our blog at http://bestmorgellonscure.com/Blog.html Take ten minutes to read through all the posts--most likely there's one or two that will answer some questions right away.

Then go into our on-line store at www.parasitestore.com and go through the different sections. You won't remember most of it, but you'll know that we have a product for everything you could be dealing with to make your life easier from supplements to lotions, soaps, shampoo, oils, ozone generators and so on.

Then do some research and take a look at the testimonials at http://www.debridingsoap.com/Testimonials.html

Others ask me about other products like Kleen Green and CedarCide. Both are disinfectants. Kleen Green breaks the organisms down with enzymes. It breaks up what is on the skin. CedarCide, peppermint oil, Epson Salts, Apple cider vinegar, peroxide, lavender oil, and so on are toxic to them and will kill what is on the skin. Any of them are far less expensive than Kleen Green or CedarCide. There is no equal to our debriding soap which deep cleans your skin of debris.

Go to www.debridingsoap.com for your first order at a 20% discount.

It is truly a gift of Nature and is made from renewable plant sources instead of chemical compounds. Its chemical analysis is liquid carbon and only one company in the world knows how to make it. It comes to you as a liquid concentrate. You add just two cap fulls (about 1.5 teaspoons) (more if desired) to your tub water and then add in the disinfectant of your choice.

You also receive an empty 4 oz spray bottle. You fill it with water and add in about 37 drops (.4 teaspoon) of concentrate and take it with you throughout the day to apply to any skin discomfort.

If you're good at following the diet, disinfecting and bathing, you will experience improvement within a week.

I've attached a questionnaire* from which I can provide you a free detailed protocol with a list of supplements and medications that accelerate your progress. I guarantee that you will learn more about skin parasites from my book than you have from the last twenty doctors you've consulted. If you have an amazon account, please consider taking a few moments and give me a 5 star review--we have over 100 at this point.

If you'd like more information, you can return this email with any questions you have or contact me during the week from 9 am to 4 pm at 732-531-1178 or 800-993-0929. I prefer emails to the phone.

I want to tell you that I'm honored to be here for you. When I suffered back in the 90's whatever help I found on-line was sketchy and basically useless. I swore that if I could ever figure out how to get my life back, I'd write detailed instructions and be a beacon for others to get their lives back. This is not my main job, since 1989 I've been manufacturing Waterloov Gutter Guards www.waterloov.com which is my main business.

Unfortunately, me being here for you does not come without a price tag. Just for you to find me, we pay Google a fee for everyone who clicks on our ad. And this fee (up to $3.50 for each click) is paid whether you are seriously looking for help or just curious and then leave the site as roughly 90% do without even downloading my free book. This adds up to $500 in Google Adword fees every three days. Yes, you read right--every three days. Google does not care whether we provide a service to you or not or help the needy. This means a significant percentage of everything you purchase from us goes to Google so we can be here for you.

Add to that salaries, rent, cost of products, and other overhead and that's another $900 every three days for seven days a week. With that in mind, we do everything we can to keep our product prices in line and competitive (even though you can't find Nature's Gift™ any where else in the world) and we also have a discount store to help those out who are veterans of the armed services or on a very limited fixed income with no help from friend's or family. If that last sentence describes you, return this email and let me know whether you're a veteran or what you limited income situation is and if you qualify, I'll provide you access to the discount store.

If you have a pet that is infected, it complicates things ten fold. If you have a significant other that is a carrier who does not also bathe with Nature's Gift™ debriding soap and wear disinfected clothing, it complicates things too.

If you're not getting results from using the debriding soap in your bath, experience says you're misunderstanding the diet and or missing something when it comes to disinfection. Relax! We're here for you.

First, I recommend going back and reading the book--the mistake you're making might just pop out at you. Next, there are two coaching options:
1. With myself for $125 for a half hour
2. Free coaching with Sandra. Sandra suffered since 2000 and dumped a ton of money for no results until she began this program. In just one year she's gotten her life back beyond her wildest dreams and is so happy that she donates her time to coach others. And those that she coaches, get results. Go to https://parasitestore.com/shop/coaching.html to arrange a coaching session with either her or myself. She specializes in Morgellons and I specialize in Collembola.

*when I receive your completed questionnaire, I will provide you with a personalized protocol. The protocol will include many of our products and supplements available in our on-line store at www.parasitestore.com and some that you'll need go elsewhere to obtain. If our products are unafordable, let me know and I'll provide you with other options. Basically, the most important thing is the diet and disinfection. Everything else helps accelerate progress and is a convenience--not a necessity.

These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, mitigate or cure any disease or physical condition. They do not affect the function or structure of the body. Legally, I must advise you to consult with your physician (you know, the guy who might have said it's in your head) before starting the diet or any of the supplements. But, if you have other medical issues, he's  supposed to know if a low glycemic, no phosphate, low gluten, no soy diet or any supplements would be a problem. But, if he tells you that boosting glutathione, using a natural antibiotic, or boosting your minerals is not good for you, you might want to look for another doctor.
