Fred drove al the way from Colorado to see Doctor Dr. Rahim Karjoo. Do a google search and see for yourself if he ever really helped anyone. I found some reviews but they were not cured only “better”.

I called them and they treat morgellons as if its a type of bacteria and are given a soap and cream. This is all after a 170$ skin test. The meds are also proprietary to his office and will run another 200

ttp://www.morgellonsmedicalcen ter.com/

These are mites she got from her dog and not morgellons. ITs just she has tried everything else. I hope it really works for her. I find that pool chlorine mixed with hair conditioner is working for me. It sux though. Dont know what else to do..

Hi all, using borax in bottled water and sometimes baking soda when I can handle both. Had bad break outs. I look like I did 3 months ago unfortunately. Stopped using Eprinex on skin this week. Going back to tea tree oil and am going to start using the borax/water/peroxide mixture for skin. Have been trying a psoriasis shampoo on scalp and it has been helping a little. My scalp and face are worse once I stopped swimming in ocean and pool. My skin was somewhat clearing up over summer I feel like I'm going backwards.. I see people are using lemon also. Is it lemon juice to drink or lemongrass as a supplement.? what are people using for scalp and is anything helping in that area? God help us all...

Fred, I hope he does help. This is hell on earth. That's a thought: maybe we are dead and in hell with all it's endless suffering.

It's hard to know if you are the same FRED posting this CURE or that CURE and using many different aliases and tones in multiple responses to your own questions, so why don't you go ahead and post the name and clinic of the doctor you've driven 1000 miles to see. Doing so would put us at ease and give us specific information. I would be one of many that is comfortable that you're being genuine here, which I'm Hoping you are.
In UK2 you said you had numerous dime sized lesions and I have viewed many similar pictures of morgellons patients. I finally came to the conclusion that a lot of doctors came to that if you have done as many things as i have to cure the mites then you couldn't possibly have them , you are crazy. I didn't buy into the crazy part but the part where I couldn't possibly have them. Everything that I tried worked for a little while , sometimes i felt good for a month but it would always come back. I knew about morgellons for some time but the actual cause if read about it seemed wholly implausible to me. It was a little while after I had given up and resigned myself to my fate, I know you've been there too, that I decided to revisit it.

I decided that in order to get this over with I would find one of the best real authorities in the world on what is actually taking place. I did the 1000 mile drive and had my appointment on Friday. I will get the results of the lab work later today or tomorrow.

The lab work consisted of a biopsy on a spot on my back, some samples of fibers that come out of me collected from my skin , they pulled some hair out because the needed to look at the root and I had a chest xray.

The problem has two aspects , it is nanoparticles that jets put in the sky and everyone has those in them now but the people with morgellons have an unusual amount of silicone in there body.

The doctor told me with my history it is unlikely that i ever had mites. I was in the Navy for 11 years and worked on optical instruments and submarine periscopes and had daily exposure to silicone in that because we used a special mil spec silicone to seal all the lenses. Then I worked in tool and die and CADCAM where all the metals are alloyed with silicone to increase cuttability.

The doctor told me I can't work in my trade anymore or anywhere I'm exposed to chemicals or silicone or anything stressful. There is a treatment he developed that I will be using soon. During the physical exam he told me that I'm showing all the symptoms and now that i am using the morgellons model I realize I had symptoms well before I thought I had scabies.

I will post below what the doctor wrote on his website, I'm not posting his exact info because I don't have his permission to do so and I don't want to do anything to effect our relationship. It shouldn't be too hard to find , just connect the dots from what I've posted. I will only make a limited amount of posts here to give an overview of my experience with this in the coming weeks.

Good luck to everyone here, while I was here I read the threads extensively and in retrospect and now knowing the symptoms I would say that 90% of the veterans including people like Canuckette, RK in the house, Catzilla, Fightingheretoo,Virtual scabies "jodyy" etc etc. all have morgellons. There have been cases of morgellons where the symptoms subside for several months especially in the winter.

below is the doctors brief assessment

It's about time that Morgellons victims were informed of the cause of Morgellons disease. Since 1994, I have known of symptoms similar to those attributed to Morgellons, including skins lesions, abnormal hair, sensations, anxiety, GI, oral, and joint problems. I saw these same symptoms when I conducted research on thousands of silicon implant cases. I reviewed both clinical findings and microscopic examinations of the breast capsule as well as breast tissue around the implants, lymph nodes, kidney, intestinal mucosa and other tissues. My findings mirrored those found in many Morgellons cases that I had reviewed. Indeed, as many as 10% of confirmed Morgellons cases involved patients with breast implants. Four of the patients I reviewed ended up having their implants removed. Microscopic examination of the implant shows silicon dioxide (silica), both in the breast tissue as well as their skin samples. These cases showed more skin lesions than in cases of people who did not have silicon in their breast implants. Those people who do not have silicon implants but still exhibit symptoms of Morgellons disease are the victims of exogenous sources of silica found in thousands of products such as various food products, computer chips and hundreds of other items that were found containing silicon silica. Many people suffering from this disease have committed suicide. It's time for the world to wake up and take this illness seriously.

I previously posted the 3 links to this 3 part youtube presentation, here is part one and anyone should be able to find the other two easily on you tube. Hildegard Staninger is one of the top tier researchers in the world and actually mentions the Doctor I went to as her research colleague in the video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

People here who have been here for a while need to take the time to read and digest the morgellons information , you'll never be able to come to terms with the condition using the amateur and half baked homespun nonsense cures you'll find at the scabies forum.

As you'll see now I'm posting from where I'm staying in Oceanside not posting from my home in Denver, the doctor is about a 40 mile drive from here.

Fred, I agree fully with your comment half baked treatment protocols. Totally. Still, I'm seeing concrete proof of parasites, particularly Thrips. These are in egg, larvae and adult forms. They are also easily captured using sticky traps, although only a positive biopsy can prove infestation. As people mention, this is environment related mostly and indeed skin borne.

My questions are more of how to rid skin infestation effectively while transforming to a better environment during the period (outside naked or inside hospitalised).

Cost and time of treatment is what keeps us from doctors' true answers.

I also believe its used in bio weapon form by our own governments. I'm just betting that's part of the wall in treatment channels.

Start a new topic specifically on this journey, please.

Caution with Fred, now for the 1st time we are introduced to a new cause and time frame never mentioned before. Not that I think Fred is making this up but rather Fred may still be scrambling for answers like the eat of us.

Fred just review your earlier posts. To go over when this all began. You said it was from pets. I know we want to beleive the doctors but that can be delusional to when we disregard our factual experiences. You send homeopathy worked temporarily for you as we'll as the borax in water.

Stay true to yourself and listen to your past. Wishing u the best

whatever, I tried

unfortunately i don't have much faith in most of the people on this forum to put anything in context because most of them are too lazy to read anything more complicated than the back of a cereal box. personally I don't give a rats ass how anyone treats themselves and I sure haven't been coming here for support, that's my journey , take it or leave it, whatever.

I do not have morgellons, I have scabies. I know the difference between the two. For the past five years I have tried everything and I still have them. Many remedies, including the topical borax w/hydrogen peroxide have helped, but not cured. I could not tolerate the oral borax cure, it made me very sick. Am waiting for the next big thing.

Hi guys,
I did everything on this site (and a few others) to get rid of mites. Several paasite cleanses, mega dosing wormwood/clove/black walnut hull, DE, homeopathy, perm, iverm, imid, etc.
They just kept breeding. Sure, numbers would lessen but still get crawling sensations. I was feeling very sad, praying for a miracle.
I was directed to earthclinic.com where I found Ted. His advice as written on the thread 'Mite Infetation Cures QUESTIONS' has totally given me a reason to hope. Three days ago I applied his recipe of Borax saturated with 1% hydrogen peroxide and could feel it woking well. I opted to also make a mix of castor oil with borax, tincture of wormood/black walnut hull, also added clove, peppermint, lavender, tea tree and lang ylang oils, the topped it with several eye dropper squirts of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide ad a shot of aloe vera gel. Spread this everywhere. Felt luoious and WOKED, They cam crawling out of everywhere.(Again?!? I thought they were motly all gone by now).
Good results with his uggestion of Ted's so I found the courage two days ago and made up his recipe for an internal solution of 1/8 tsp in a liter of water (sipped throughout the day, best after meals). Wow. Any crawling sensation in the padt two days has been halted in its tracks. I can feel intuitively they are dead.
My life light is now burning again. I'm so grateful and wanted to share this experience with you guys.
Do read his info - he's awesome!
Other notes- I'm also on the foodgrade hydrogen peroxide protocol (as detailed in the book - The One Minute Cure), up to 8 drops of 35% in 8 oz of distilled water, 3x/day. I will continue up to 26 drops 3x/day then taper down a drop day by day until I get to th maintenance of 3drops 3x/day.
Ted rcommend cleaning the environment with a ncessary solution of borax and H2O2 to kill the mites (I add this to lysol). He also stresses putting both hydrogen peroxide and borax in the laundry wash cycle. I let mine soak in this (+ A&H powder) for an hour then run it - I also put a scoop of DE (mixed with pyrethroid powder) into the dryer with the clothes, run on High. I sprayed all my clothing with a mix of water with alcohol, permethrin, borax, H2O2, cedar, clove, peppermint, lavender, tea tree oil and a little bit of apple cider vinegar.
My house smells really fresh, clothes smell good, best of all no itchy/crawly sensation.
What to lose? Ted's solution of Borax and hydrogen peroxide are super cheap (at least, relatively so) and are the absolutely only thing that give me cause to hope for a future free of this pestilence.
Give the thread a look-see - I'm sure you won't be disappointed. On the contrary.
Pemethrin might work fine for folks with recent infestation but if you have had them for while, as Ted explains, these buggers are now traveling via the bloodstream. He explains how the solution kills them.
Would love to hear how adding these recipes into mite-fights help you all as well...
God Bless you all!
How much peroxide do you mix with the borax?

I'm in Vegas now on my way back from seeing the doctor. For the person who says they know the difference between morgellons and scabies i just have to laugh since some of the symptoms overlap quite nicely and 99.9999 percent of doctors have no clue about morgellons and the same amount of websites give complete misinformation on it. If you'll read post #587 you will possibly understand the true cause.

When I was in the navy I was an Opticalman, the smallest rate in the navy, and I carried the NEC 1903 which only about 50 people earned in the history of the navy. During my time there I was exposed to a variety of silicone sources in the performance of my job daily, desiccant, methyl salicilate and dow corning RTV 3145. The doctor said I will always have morgellons because it is impossible to eliminate all the silicone from my body but his process will eliminate most of it and I can return to normal as long as I stay away from chemicals and silicates.

Morgellons has 137 different symptoms and manifests differently in different people, also it depends on your immune system.

For someone who sees that when they've done everything except drop a nuclear bomb on themselves and aren't cured of the Scabies my assertion is that you're trying to cure something you don't have,all the veterans here. For the people who want to cross that bridge and can look at their symptoms in the framework of the morgellons model here is the next big thing.

The treatment consists of showering twice daily with mud soap for 4 weeks. then once daily for maintenance. The mud soap he furnishes is from Korea and pulls impurities out of the skin.

After showering the a spray consisting of 98.5% ethyl alcohol and 1.5% carbomax is sprayed on problem areas and left to air dry.

After the spray a cream is used consisting of all natural ingredients as the carrier base and the active ingredient is.01% silver sulfadiazine which is massaged into problem areas and left until the next shower.

With the above information and some intelligent google work you will be able to move forward.

Eliminate all silicates from your environmental exposure. Btw ben gay is methyl salicilate.

There you have it, the next big thing.

Fred out.

Thanks for the careful, and succinct account of your treatment. I applaud your persistence in seeking answers and your courage in applying them and I send you positive energy that this latest treatment will work for you. Like all of us, I am so sorry that you/we have acquired this controversial and complex disorder from whatever complex and mysterious cause(s). I wish you well. I do have a request: I know that this malady certainly can cause depression if only as a result of dealing endlessly with it's effects - but I implore you to resist reacting to those who disagree with you with insult and invective. Please take some perspective so as to avoid taking their remarks to heart and so personally. In so doing, you will help to maintain the help-giving civility of this forum, and not contribute to or exacerbate the negativity so bad for this disorder. As to whether or not it's called Morgellons or resistent scabies - why not opt out of the disagreement and call it "parasites; or demodectic mites (a la EarthClinic)? In any case - all the best.

Obesity in the United States leads the world. Careful analysis Of Mitt Romney's campaign platform leaves my mind boggled that he recieved 47% of the vote. People watch Fox news like it's the truth but it is actually an assault on our democracy from a foriegn interest, Rupert Murdock. The constitution guarantees
religous freedom and the founding fathers intended that as freedom from religon as well yet there are people everywhere who are religous zombies who will try to force that down peoples throats.

The complacency and laziness that our American culture has devolved to disgusts me. Look at hurricane Sandy everyone standing in the street looking for help and nothing is getting done , surely there must be one chainsaw on Staten Island. I always help people when I can. It's really disheartening when the effort people put forth is limited to going through the drive through at Mcdonalds. I came here thinking it would be a group effort how naive of me. This country wasn't built that way at all but it's now a culture of hangers on. Not to mention the ignorant racism directed at my president. It is truly disgusting.

Just my take.

On another there is a Vet in Brazil that deals with human mite patients (Dr. Nicolau Maues): If you haven't been cured after trying everything, he believes it may be an allergy caused by a hyper immune system which was caused by the original mite infestation. You may have cured yourself of the vicious mites but are now more aware of all the other mites and micro creatures on and around you. Here is a story from a couple who suffered from bird mites: We would like to share our story with everyone that comes to this website for answers, andhopefully ourexamplewill helpsomepeople. Our nightmare started when we moved Dallas, Texas, in a lovely art deco apartment. The buildinghad just beenrestored,andwewerethe first tenants in our apartment. As soonas wemoved inweopenedthe windows so we could get fresh air. And in the first night wefelt some bites. We imagined that we either had dust mites and that they had bothered us so much because we spent our first night on thefloor (we hadn't had time to put our futon together yet). Next day we scrubbed down the floors. We had wonderful hardwood floors which made the job easier.Butnext day wefeltthebugs again. Webought flea powder andspread italloverthehouse. Wereturned the futon and bought a nicer one from a fancy store. That didn't solve the problem either. Then we called our landlord andtold him about the problem. By then we had observed that thereweremany bird nests on the roof, and we thought that might bethecauseof ourproblem. While we waited for some action from the landlord,wesprayedRaidallover the place. At first the landlord believed us and aftersomedays he called a pest control guy. But the pest guy just put some glue traps in the apartment, andbecausehedidn'tcatchanythin ghe said we had nothing in there. Thefact is that webelievetheRaidkilledthe little monsters for a while. After this episode it got quite cold, and we didn'tfeelanythinganymore until summertimecame. Coincidence or not, when it was hot we decided to take a trip, and got our luggage that was stored in the attic of the building. That was when we started feeling the creatures again.

Continued- The problem was that we sprayed the house with Raid again, andwedidn'tfeelanybetter this time. On the contrary, we could barely sleep… sometimes we would get out of the house just to get some rest from the bites and itchiness. We tried to talk to our landlord again and ask him to release us from the lease, but he said we had no reason to demand that and that he would let us out only if we caught the creatures and proved our point scientifically, seeing that he had done his due diligence andcalled pest control. So we bought a microscope and started hunting forbirdmites!Wespent many hours, but finallywe got some of them andsent themto thelabat theUniversityof Florida (A localuniversityjust insinuatedthat wehad a psychosis when the landlord called them to inquireabout it). Our samples came back positive andthe landlord was obliged to release us from our contract. We were very careful before we entered our new home. We washedever single thing that we had that could be washed. Things that wecould not wash we put in a storage space and left it there, imagine, in the summer of Texas, covered with poison. Weused roach bombs, and even soaked our belongings witha superstrong product from Bayer to be used outside only, made20 times stronger than recommended. We got rid of our furniture. Then wemoved to ournew home sweet home. But soon we had a badsurprise. Westartedfeelingbites again. In our first night it was sort of bad, but itbecameworseandworse. In the first a month we had had the pest control guys to come over three times, we had spread Borax all over our carpet, we had used about five roach bombs in the house, andwehad coveredour entire house with the same awful chemical from Bayer three times (which of course was great for our immune systems!). And we still feltthem. Webecame completely hopeless. Nobody believed us. We talked to entomologists, pest control personnel,andweweretreatedas if weweretotal freaks. In our despair we madea drastic decision. Wedecidedto quit our jobs, give up everything andgobackto Braziltakingonly some clothes right out of the washer andthe computer. So we went to a hotel, took a longshower with everythingthat we knew that madeus feelbetter(such as Epsom salts, vinegar, etc.), washed andpacked some of our clothes and left to catch our plane. We threw away pretty mucheverything that we had. But when we were waitingat the airport we still feltbites.How could it be? We had washed ourselves very well, we were wearing clean clothes, andwestillfeltthem… We called our family andtold them to make hotel reservations for us. We could not go to our family's house full of bugs. As soon as we got to Brazil we went to a motel, took a long bath, changed into clothes that had neverbeen in the US, and went to a hotel. We were sure that this time we were free of them. Maybethey were in our clothes from the States,but nowwewerewearingclothes that hadn't been in contact withthebugs.

Continued- During the night, however, we still felt bites and feltthem crawling as usual. We just cried andprayed. There was nothing else that we could do. We were sure that they had colonized our bodies. But our family helped by callingseveraldoctors. Wespent a month going from doctor to doctor, takingseveralmedications to fight our parasites, but with no result. We lived in a different placeevery week, but we were still infested. Wepaidtheequivalent of $700to have our computer andclothes treatedwithethyleneoxide(a seriously toxic sterilization process) at a medical lab. We even tried to turnourselves into thelocalhealth/epidemiology department, but they didn'tbelieveitwas a realproblem. Finally, when a relative of ours talkedto a veterinarianabout our problem, he said that he knew somebody the Oswaldo Cruz Institutein Rio de Janeiro, who was a veterinarianandhad a PhD inentomology-specifically mites. We had nothing to loose, so we went to see him. We thank this man from the depthof ourhearts. Hegaveus answers to all of our problems, andgaveus hopeagain. Heexplainedto us that we, in reality, were not colonized by bird mites; we had gotten rid of them a long, longtime ago. Our problem,(why didn't we think of it- duh!) was that our immune systems, on contact with the bites quickly developedan allergicreaction to anykindof mites orother micro-pests. There are always plenty of little creatures in our environmentandon us,andwenormally neverfeelthem. Buthaving been exposed to these specific types of bites, we became super-sensitized to all mites andmicro-ants. Ourimmunesystems would produce welts, rashes, etc just on contact withanybeastie. The solution was to desensitize ourselves andgetourimmunesystems off of hyperdrive. This was accomplishedwithtwoantiallergy medicines: Allegra every morning andHydroxizinethis is a transliteration from Portuguese, check on the real English name) at bedtime for 2 months. The professor, Dr. Nicolau Maués,toldus that many Brazilians andalso foreigners come to see him in the same situation that we were. He sent us to see an allergy specialist, Dr Oscarina Ezequiel, in Juiz de Fora, MG, who ordered some exams to check our allergy levels. She told us to go backhome immediately,andhugandkiss everyonewe loved, becausewedidn'thaveanythingcon tagious. We went throughthis treatment andnowwecan saythat wearepretty much back to normal. On some rare passingmoments wemight briefly feel a crawling sensation. Recently,on contact withsomeonewho had head lice, I developedan ugly rash which wentawaywithPropionate of Clobetazol lotion. Nevertheless weareso relievedto discover that there are no maniacalmites pursuingus-- just the normal creatures that are around every single person in this world. We hope that our story can help those who already did everything imaginable andcouldn't finda solution…try treating itas an allergy!
