I am 56 and think I got Morgellons in Vietnam. Any vets out there with it?
Does the VA recognize it or even know about it?
Dr Harvey said in the Washington Post that he thinks Morgellons started in 1970's in South East Asia.

So Tom...you might be right!!!

I'm Merrily's housband.(above) I have come to the conclusion that this morgellons is DEMONIC, And what are they doing in our sky? Raining down fiberglass? Thats where I got my morgellons, when I inhaled dust from a man made cloud. Its in my well water, air, and everything. Silacone oozing from my crotch, Yes this is attacking my repro- orgins, and mind, additude, and will to live. I have seen alot of evil in my life and this stinkes like Hitler, and his Arian super race crap.. God help us all.

Alison,
My husband has tried Elimite, Nutrasilver, Diatomaceous earth,(both internally and in the bath)...he's practically living on Benedryl.
I'm thinking of what my Mom or Grandma might have used - hot salt packs - but his lesions are now so widespread we'd need to pack a body suit.
As an R.N., and fellow sufferer, are there ANY
OTC protocols that are working for YOU???
Thank you, Merrily
To Merrily,
I lost a bit over a year's work due to open non-healing wounds that produced fibers. The hospital needed confirmation of what I had. I got blown off by every physician I visited. I then decided to try to boost my immune system. Vits, esp C, and B. I took Noni juice. Took colloidal silver. Treated the skin kindly with mild ( if any) soaps and used ice packs (blue cooler packs and ace wrap) to stop the itch. I covered the sores at night to prevent nocturnal skin damage from inadvertant scratching.

I looked everywhere around me for the origin of the fibers...and found them just about everywhere I looked. I was then fairly convinced that the tradwinds in paradise blew more than the smell of Plumeria blossums on the island of Oahu!

My husband and I sold everything and moved to the country of Panama, retired. Not one fiber have I seen here. Skin has been clear for now about two years....just on my simple protocol.

I believe it's environmental. I also believe more people have this than is currently known.

Get rest, treat your body kindly: vits, good food, exercise, reduce stress, be gentle to the skin. More than one individual has had this just "go away". Keep your environment clean.

Hope it helps.
Alison

PS: I tested "eqiovocal" for Lyme by CDC standards and high positive by Bowen. I never found any physician to deal with that. My "Lyme" ( or whatever caused that positive) remains untreated.

I have been waiting to say this since 03/25/06 –“Folks, I swear to God, I think I found a CURE for Morgellon’s!”. No gimmick. I want nothing from you, except to help end your suffering ASAP and to give you back your lives.
I’m not a doctor, not a scientist, not in denial…I am a fellow victim, I got Morgellon’s cleaning up litter when I backed into a sharp tree, I later found a dead tick in my sweater. I got immediately sick, as soon as I hit into The Tree. Fever, strongest onset of flu-like feeling I ever felt, I was disoriented, my body knew something was WRONG. When I came home that day, I had shards of something RED in my shoe, that also embedded deep into my calf and foot. Later on, intense itching on my back, a weird nodule grew, lactose intolerant within about 14 days. I got sicker and sicker. My back had turned purplish-red from shoulder to shoulder. This weird crap & fuzz started coming out of my back, I thought things were falling onto my skin from the ceiling. There were always dark fibers or fuzz on my toilet paper, too – Like I was turning into a giant dryer sheet! Something weird that looked like a bent rusty paper clip could be seen slightly underneath the skin on my back…I was misdiagnosed by 5 overpaid ‘doctors’ who either said or thought I was nuts. The best I ever heard was ‘landscaping fungus’. I was prescribed and took Cipro for lyme, Sporanox for sporotrichosis…It didn’t work. By now, I had painful lesions on my leg, knees, arms, back, neck and in my left cheek. Blotches of white where the pigment was gone across my back. I never ate anymore. I had no energy. I either slept all the time or I couldn’t sleep @ all. I lost interest in anything I ever cared about. I would cry at the drop of a hat or get very angry or upset. I got my first two grey hairs ever in a line w/2 lesions on my neck. I lost many a hair, too. I’d find these freak balls of hair w/lint inside them around my house…I felt like I had arthritis in my back and all over. My bones popped and cracked like I was 100…
One day, about a year after The Tree - my right eye began a nervous twitch, I had weird eye goop (like people w/lupus), I would vomit violently & randomly. Suddenly, I couldn’t think clearly and I couldn’t spell anymore. I freaked out! I called the health food store and the owner said “Honey, c’mon out, it’s gonna be alright – it sounds like you’ve got some friends in you!” &#61514;
I took 2 ParaGone cleanses over 2 years by ReNew Life, I took about 7 other things for different kinds of parasites. I waited for the CDC & NIH to start doing their jobs. That certainly didn’t work…So, I carefully spaced out each ‘remedy’ and never mixed things or did anything dangerous,(no chemicals, no metals) so that I could safely help US if I ever found something that worked. I was better after the cleanses, but I still had marks & I was still hurling almost daily…
Until now, people. Morgellonex. I found it!
I am on Day 24/26 and I know this is it - I didn’t change my junky diet, all I did besides Morgellonex was to continue to NEVER drink or really even city touch tap water like I had not for years, I did regular tanning (never burning myself!) in a normal tanning bed every week or more and I used drawing salve/black tar/ichthammol bandaged on lesions.

If I were y’all, I’d get a hold of some non-prescription drawing salve QUICK at my local pharmacy, before our FDA/AMA makes it disappear…because twice during Morgellonex did this HURT coming out of me and that seems to ease it and ‘draw’ IT out faster. IT came out of my back, where I hit into The Tree, so depending on where yours is embedded, it’s likely gonna freaking really hurt coming out - so get your salve & bandages ready…
Please know, I make not one cent from Precision Herbs, I’m not a distributor, I never met the people – but I do feel like I owe them my life now and I do not know how I can ever thank them!!! I got 160 caps of Morgellonex for $44.00,(6 caps at a time, per day for 26, 27 days) one can either call them & go through their distributors to order it or do their remote treatment from anywhere on our infected globe, it’s $85 – Worst case scenario if this is a CURE and I don’t go backwards from where I am right now – WE can be fixed for $129, in a month…Only $44 if you know a distributor…Here’s the link if you don’t know one…

(Sorry, seem to have a problem w/these posts appearing correctly - email me if you want the story w/out the chopping)
It’s got some bark and and leaf and stuff in it, I dunno & I don’t really care if the label says root of cat turd because it’s working (and I didn’t do any other weird things along w/it, either)…Yeah, it kinda stinks (like opening a sealed tupperware container-ful of Dead Head Butt, after a long, strange summer on tour - is exactly what it smells like), but hey – Morgellon’s stinks, too!
Here’s what happened to me w/Morgellonex over the last month and you can judge for yourselves:
Day 1/26 - My body felt like "HOPE" inside, I can’t explain it, it was so weird. It felt excited. Like my body had HOPE, is the only way to put it. Nothing really happened at first...maybe some sniffles, muscle twitches, flashes of a headache the first week, nothing major...
Day 7/26, in the afternoon - Sharp, AWFUL piercing feeling like a splinter was coming out of my hand, from the inside out. In between my thumb and pointer finger on my right hand, it hurt like heck – out came tiny, very SHARP, navy blue fibers for about 15 minutes!(not kidding)
Day 10/26 or so (?)- I had been violently vomiting, daily for about a month before M-Ex, randomly off and on since about two weeks after The Tree. At times it felt like something was stuck around my tonsils and I’d just gag and dry heave, sometimes I would heave up tiny shards of red like I had seen in my foot and calf the day of The Tree…The throwing up stopped :) Thank God! It was awful.
Day 14/26 or so (?)- I began to get a cold, when I’d cough sometimes it sounded like bronchitis...I got what looked like pink eye in my right eye that had begun twitching about a year after I contracted Morgellon's.(I didn't go to the ‘doctor’ for pink eye, cuz I think I may never go to one again - so I didn't take any antibiotics or anything for pink eye...last parasite cleanse I took was in June, that didn't work, so I am sure - Morgellonex alone did all this.) My previous good times/good-natured personality returned.
Day 24/26 - today!!! pink eye gone, cold gone but still kind of sniffling, last lesions on my left cheek, jaw-line and on my back and neck are healing and peeling up off of me like a sunburn! The last few lesions I have just had something come out, at the same time, out of each of them - it seemed like a brown splinter, looked like a little scab.
I had some unexplained muscle aches and things along the way w/Morgellonex, too - like my whole right arm hurt the one day for no reason, the next day, left arm hurt - it was this THING coming out of me! Kind of randomly itchy @ times @ previously affected spots, my head itches a little. I’m getting hungrier every day, too!
Morgellonex didn’t do anything weird, I’m fine…I was already vomiting every day, this actually made that stop within about 10 days. I’ve taken it for 24 days and I’m still kickin’- I was waiting to see that, for sure, until I told US.
So, go - be well, people. You can be feeling better within days, no matter where you are in the world. Know that I would not steer you wrong. When I read of all of US and knew this was real, I sat in tears. But there IS hope. I’m sorry this happened to you in the first place…You all deserve better! Email me @ enviro-girl@hotmail.com, let me know if this kills your Morgellon’s, too and if you felt the same things I did as it began to work. I'm sorry this happened, we ALL deserve better from those acting like they govern the best country in the world!
Peace & Love,

I find a great treatment- albeit temporary, is rubbing alcohol. The stronger, the better.
Caveats, etc:
-Rub the rubbing alcohol, don't just splash it on.
-Be very, very, very, very careful of anything above the neck.
-Alcohol vapors are real... beware.
o Keep the eyes closed during application.
-rub the alcohol everywhere, preferably with gloves. As it will dry up the hand(s) otherwise.

This worked for me. Borax and Epsom salt baths daily and then shower with TGel head to toe. Also do not moisturize and especially don't use Vaseline or aquaphor. Use calidryl to dry up from head to toe to dry lesions. I also have put iodine directly on tough spots on my feet and itchiness went away in an hour. I'm not getting new spots. Vaseline made mine grow twenty times worse. I don't think they suffocate. I think the black stuff is their excrement after they eat it. IMHO.

As with Aids, we will probably have to wait on the French or another foreign government to say honestly what is causing this affliction. Do you really think the CDC will admit that this is happening? The impact of this is exponentially more than bird flu and the stock market might get queasy. So, there's your answer - if it negatively affects the markets, Wall Street and the the powers in the White House, no one at the CDC will dare say a word.
YEAH -THEY WILL WHEN THEIR ASSHOLES START ITCHING AND WONT STOP .HATE TO SAY IT LIKE THAT BUT HEY THE TRUTH IS THE TRUTH .SOMETIMES THEY GOT TO FEEL WHAT YOU SAY BECAUSE THEY SURE DONT LISTEN .
