WHAT ABOUT THE CDC STUDY? IS THERE ANY HOPE OF GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION?


Unfortunately, it appears that the long delayed CDC study was designed to confirm the commonly held but false belief that Morgellons is nothing more than a delusional condition. I am neither a doctor nor a scientist, so I will defer to the comments recently made in a radio interview by Dr. Randy Wymore, researcher at Oklahoma State University and member of the Peer Review Panel that evaluated the study data.

As he noted, the study did not make any hard conclusions and called for additional study into the condition(s) related to the acknowledged suffering of Morgellons patients... which brings us back to the focus and purpose of this website: Raising Hope and Relieving Suffering.

Hope and knowledge are the natural enemies of suffering and despair. Darkness has no choice but to yield to light. This website is loaded with light and love. Drink it in, and let it permeate you.

Make the choice to take control of your destiny and don't look away. Don't look back, don't look left, don't look right. Face each day with new conviction that you must overcome this challenge... not just for you but for those whose lives you will change for the better in the process.

Know that our prayers are with you and we will do all we can to assist you in your recovery.

God Bless, Never give up Hope!

HOW LONG DOES ONE HAVE TO STAY ON THE PROTOCOL?


Although the internet is teeming with offers of "instant cures" for Morgellons, the unfortunate truth is that there is no silver bullet. Repairing and restoring one's bioterrain takes time and commitment to make the necessary changes in one's lifestyle choices.

We have found eighteen months typical for adults with no other significant health challenges; not as long for children, as their immune systems seem to respond much quicker than adults.

However, within three months of fully committing to the protocol, most people have consistently reported stabilizing their health and regaining their ability to function and be productive. From there it becomes about isolating remaining challenges and strengthening their natural defenses.

I stopped all prescription medications at eighteen months. Three years into my recovery and still symptom free, I continue to take the Logos supplements and have no plans to stop using them. Everything about the Burgstiner Wellness Protocol makes sense to me for maximizing my health long term.

I still take MMS or Molecula Silver occasionally if I feel tired or get exposed to a cold or virus, as well as various other Logos formulas as needed (i.e.- Adams Vitality prostate support, Joint Marvel, an occasional cleanse or Candida Rid when I get lax in my diet).

I am looking forward to adding their new greens drink to my regimen as well as the new MagnifiZyme therapeutic enzyme formula John B. is so excited about... all of us should be taking that to control inflammation, boost immunity and "clean house" in our body.

Especially those who have recovered their productivity but still occasionally deal with nagging symptoms from infections that are "dug in" to biofilms. For those people, MagnifiZyme may be the missing link to complete freedom.


WHERE DO I BEGIN?


First order the protocol products. Go to the protocol page and read it at least twice. Print out a copy and keep it in the place where you store your vitamins (a cool, dry dark place is best).

We recommend that the vitamins be started for 30 days prior to adding the MMS. This is to give the body's detox systems a chance to catch up. The Molecula Silver may be added immediately.

The Morgellons Support Extension Kit was developed by Logos Nutritionals after I got well as a result of ongoing research and experiences with Morgellons sufferers. In order to optimize detoxification pathways and minimize herxheimer reactions, the Extension Kit products should be added as you start your second month of the protocol.

Study the protocol page to familiarize yourself with the protocol as it has evolved to date. The time spacing for the various supplements is significant because it allows each part of the protocol to maximize itself.

I am aware of the demands, changes and challenges that lie ahead. Although it may seem like a very dark road, I assure you that many have followed me through the tunnel and back out into the light of good health.



WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO USE MMS?


MMS is an oxidant that is only active in the body for a short time (one to two hours). Some of the nutrients in the protocol (such as the vitamin C found in Complete Thymic Formula) may inactivate the MMS if taken together, so it is important to keep the MMS separated from any antioxidants in your regimen.

This is why I always took my MMS along with my antibiotic at bedtime so it never interfered with any other part of the protocol and it seemed to optimize its effectiveness. It also seemed to help me sleep better at night.

I began with one drop of MMS and one drop of acid. I let it mix for twenty seconds, and added six to eight ounces of water. I then waited 30 more seconds and drank it.

Each week, I would add one drop more of both MMS and the acid until I reached my maximum tolerance, as evidenced by my body's response (headaches, nausea and diarrhea). I then stopped for three days to allow my body's detox systems to ”catch up”, and started my maintenance dose, which was three drops less than my maximum level.

However, experience has taught us the importance and enhanced effectiveness of pulsing a lower dose twice per day instead of taking a higher dose once per day. Optimal results are being attained using a low but therapeutic dose (working up to 3 to 7 drops according to individual tolerance) twice per day which increases the exposure of pathogens to the MMS but gives the body ample opportunity to keep pace with the detox burden.


WHAT IF I CAN'T AFFORD ALL THE PARTS OF THE PROTOCOL?


We all have a private side to our being and may not wish to disclose every little detail about our personal lives and/or finances. This was a struggle for me, as it may well be for others.

In my bankruptcy appearance of October 1, 2009, the court appointed trustee dismissed my case. I am not sure if she felt bad for me because the way I walked or because of the hundreds of visible scars on my neck. Nonetheless, when I got to my car, I cried like a baby, much as I am now as I reveal this to you all.

In life we all have choices, so this is what I did:

I stopped using my car, cut down use by 90% (gas is not going to get cheaper), and changed my diet completely. The diet change was healthy and saved me money as the wrong foods actually cost more.

I could then afford my medications and supplements. Remember, "If you do not have your health, you have nothing"!

Toughen up; one must be brave to beat our disease!

That being said, over the years we have tried to help as many of you as possible who for reasons beyond your control could not afford to purchase the protocol items you so desperately needed. Unfortunately, it has been impossible for me to personally fund the purchase of products for all who need and deserve them.

We pray that the formation of the new Not for Profit corporation (He Cures All Foundation) will help provide the funding required to meet the ever increasing need.


WHAT CHANGES DO I NEED TO MAKE IN MY DIET?


The optimal diet for most people is an alkalyzing diet of veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, and whole grains, while limiting meat and dairy and avoiding anything processed... especially refined carbs (to help control the fungal component of coinfections).

While all of that is basically true, it is also true that there is no one right diet to fit all people. There are several excellent articles on the Logos website that address this issue in detail, such as One Man's Meat is Another Man's Poison, Metabolic Typing and its Role in Weight Loss, and You are What you Eat.

It is wise to start educating yourself and to start learning from your own experiences as well. Soda is a huge no-no. not just for Morgellons sufferers, but for general health.

Read labels, or better yet, make it from scratch.

Stay away from unhealthy fats (they are in most processed foods). Olive oil, coconut oil and organic butter are great. No canola, soy, safflower, etc. - Vegetable oils have actually been linked with the rise of heart disease over the last century, not-saturated fat as we were lead to believe. Good quality (grass fed, organic) beef and buffalo are great for you (in moderation).

And exercise!!! Super important.

Remember, there is no one diet that is right for everyone... we are all different. Some are fast oxidizers; they do well with a higher percentage of protein in their diet. Slow oxidizers need more carbs.

The science behind it gets complicated, but it all boils down to taking control of your food intake - quality and quantity - and listen to your body to see how it responds to different foods. Then make changes accordingly.

Start with the foods God provided for us and leave all the boxed and artificial stuff alone. All it does is feed the sickness industry.

FIVE MOST COMMON REASONS FOR FAILING TO ACHIEVE DESIRED RESULTS


1. The inability or unwillingness to remove one's self from a toxic environment (such as fungus or mold) which results in continuous overburdening of the body's immune and detox systems - and chronic inflammation.

2. The mixing of protocols, which almost always seems to create an imbalance.

3. The misuse of the products... especially MMS. We have found that when people try to rush the process along, their detoxification pathways get overwhelmed. They become frightened and frustrated, and choose not to continue the protocol.

4. Party Hardy - We have found so many people - including myself at first- once on the protocol for a time, feel so good that they break their diet, stop taking their meds, and don't get enough rest.

They go out and eat all the wrong foods and otherwise indulge themselves. This of course is quite understandable, but it comes at a high price.

5. Not Following the Protocol as it is laid out - The protocol itself is not so simple. For this I apologize, but the implementation of the regimen as described on the Protocol Page worked for me, is working and has worked for so many others. It requires courage, dedication, determination and time. Not everyone is willing to make the commitments necessary.
