I've been battling this "depression" lately going through this.... I'm not quite sure how to shake it and I need advice from those who are going through this. I've given my life to Christ and asked Him to take control, but after 5 months of this it's weighing on me. I don't feel like I can live like a normal human being and I'm wondering if it will ever end.
These bird mites swimming around under my skin are just driving me crazy. I want to make lemonade out of this sour patch in my life - but the truth is, I don't know how. Do I just accept it? If I accept it, am I not trusting God? I'm so confused. How do I move to another place without worrying about infesting it? How do I go around my loved ones without worrying about infesting them?
I don't know how to live a normal life anymore.
Yes, VERY helpful! Thank you and everyone else so much for the detailed info. I'll be sure to follow it. I've been feeling pretty good the last couple of days and will keep everyone posted.
Thank you! I feel a lot better knowing that it's normal. I was beginning to wonder.... lol
I agree with the others, what you are experiencing is completely normal in our healing process.
Sounds like you are in the phase of it gets worse before its gets better and believe me we have ALL been there... some of us more than once.
Definitely rest as much as possible, that is when our bodies do their greatest healing. Also be sure you are drinking PLENTY of water! The rule of thumb is you should drink "at least" 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water each day. Example, I weigh 110 lbs, therefore I drink a minimum of 55 ounces of water daily. If I drink a cup of herbal tea or the capomo coffee alternative I add an equal amount of additional water to my daily intake that day. Adding organic lemon juice will help too just keep it away from your WPS by one hour (before and after). If you're a Costco member they have a wonderful organic lemon juice that is very reasonable.
Lastly, as Laura mentioned you have many toxic things in your body that don't belong there... this was the point where I started thinking if my ultimate goal is to rid by body of toxins I should probably start making a conscious effort to not put any additional toxins in my body. You can slowly but surely start changing out your toxic products, such as tooth paste, shampoo, etc. to non-toxic products. I believe I have a fairly detailed post about the non-toxic products I use in my thread, Is this an answer to prayer?.
Which leads me to Laura's suggestion on the WPS in a water bottle... I too have always worked through my healing journey and have had to take WPS as well as my mid morning and lunchtime supplements while working. I have a separate set of everything I need at work which has been VERY helpful. I did purchase two sets of WPS but as for the Logos products I just saved my bottles from a previous month and then fill them with whatever amount I'll need for work for the upcoming month. Additionally I purchased a glass water bottle from Marshall's for about $10 which is "all" I ever use as a way to avoid additional toxins from the plastic water bottles, especially when adding WPS.
I hope this information as well as knowing you are NOT alone in your experience is helpful..!!!
Love, Peace & MANY Prayers,
No worries. Things are happening as they should. Remember you have many toxic things in your body that should not be there. So this protocol is trying to take care of it. However, it gets a little rough on us before it gets better. Your symptoms are great signs that the protocol is doing its job. So rejoice!
In the beginning, I took the WPS just before bed so I was able to sleep through some of the healing process. Part of healing does include getting rid of the toxicity which explains more bathroom time. Again I say, rejoice the protocol is working.
Please continue to post and ask questions as we have already experienced some of the unpleasant healing symptoms you are and will experience.
Brian, you are now in the race! Stay focused on the cure and you will succeed!
In Christ Love,
All good Brian!
That means your body is kicking this invader out!
What you’re going through is what everyone means when they talk about the protocol being “hard” to do.
It’s not just remembering to take all the supplements at the right times...it’s dealing with the herxing that is necessary to get it out of your system.
Just keep moving go reward and get as much sleep as you possibly can.
Let anything and everything else go right now that isn’t absolutely necessary for survival. It’s difficult to work while you’re going through this process...but it’s do-able.
I’m living proof. I’ve worked the whole time and a lot of other stuff didn’t get done.
I’ve watched for two years as things piled up on my to do list that had no hope of getting done at the time...and guess what?
I’m finally feeling like doing them and the whole list was still there when I got ready. Now I’m slowly checking off things that I’d thought would never get done.
So hang in there. You can do this...just don’t over think it and worry too much about it...just do what you’re supposed to for today, then get up again tomorrow and do it again.
You’ll make it to the finish line!
I did what you said with the water bottle and it works perfectly! Thank you....
A few concerns - I'm up to 4 drops of wps per day, so not much.... but I've noticed I get completely exhausted throughout the day, never had this problem before. Like I can hardly keep my eyes open or think straight. This has been happening for about a week now. Also, without getting too graphic - I've been using the bathroom about 4-5 times a day but it isn't diarrhea. My vision has also gotten worse throughout all of this. Trying not to worry.
Has anyone else gone through this and is it normal?
If you are taking the double dose of WPS, you might try mixing your daytime dose in a glass and then pour it into a water bottle. This will enable you to take it to work and not have to worry about mixing it while working. I would encourage you to keep it from heat and light. But it could last a day or two (maybe longer but not sure) in the water bottle.
It is great to know you are doing the protocol including the WPS. Looking forward to hearing about your progress.
In Christ Love,
I've been unemployed recently so keeping up with the protocol hasn't been too difficult time wise. My question is, how did you who work full-time do it? I'm starting a new job very soon. How did you manage taking the MMS, etc at the office?
Any good suggestions?
Please do not give up. The early months on the protocol can be so challenging. In our 3rd and 4th month, my 14 year old daughter and I had terrible, painful and sci/fi movie type symptoms, but thankfully this forum exists and we learned we needed to push through because that was a part of purging and the healing process. My daughter would be in tears every night, because the evening would bring painful, what she called "electric shock" pin pricks all over her back and stomach. We had nights where we only got a few hours of rest. Please do not give up hope! It does get better. We are 11 months in, still symptomatic, but can basically lead a semi-normal lifestyle. We still have ups and downs with this disease, but they are manageable. We know that if we stay the course we will reach 100%. It may take us 2 years, but we are SO willing to make the sacrifice, because we see it working.
Please give it more time!!!! We are all pulling for you and know you can do it. Push through these next few months and you will understand what we are all talking about!
I totally agree with what Laura and Thomas said. When you feel down and out, read read read the testimonials of those who've regained their health on this protocol. Read read read the testimonials of people who are still on the protocol and who are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Ask Mel if you could talk to the people on this forum who never gave up and are experiencing healing. Talking to these people makes such a difference. Listen to the calls, specially the 'Oldies is goodies' one. These will all give you hope. Attend the prayer sessions on Sunday.
All of the above is what keeps me going. You will get there.....just keep at it. Health is wealth
Months 3-6 and even into the 7th month I was in pure agony. The pain did get better for me. I still have crawling but no pain except for what I believe was a kidney stone passing and some pain in some spinal joints just recently.
I would like to encourage you to not give up and stay the course. I truly believe this protocol works. It's just very slow and painful at times.
doubt and fear are your worst enemies.
I have been battling this disease for over 2 years. However, I have been on this protocol for only 11 months. It took over a year to find this community. The good news is I have slowly but surely been regaining my "new" life.
The term "new" life is because we will never be the same after conquering MD. Therefore it is a new life. This new life is one of a better relationship with our Lord. The old life my relationship was good; my new life the relationship is amazing. The old life consisted of taking antibiotics every other month and unaware what bio-terrain was. The new life understands it takes time to restore my bio-terrain because it took years to harm it. The old life was not concerned about ingredients in some of the foods I ate. The new life reads foods labels and understands how to make better food choices. The old life took things for granted. The new life appreciates the simple things in life. So I must say the new me is doing better! I am not in the 100% club yet. But I will be; I will not give up!
Please learn everything you can from this disease. There are so many phases of healing and each one is equally important. Do not give in no matter how crazy things get. I promise you we all have our science fiction version of what we are dealing with or have already dealt with. Give us updates of the good, the bad, and the science fiction you are dealing with. We are here for you.
“Your righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens, you who have done great things. Who is like you, God? Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once more.” Psalms 71:19-21
In Christ Love,
Honestly, I've really been struggling these last couple of days. I've been sticking to the protocol, but it's getting difficult. These last four months have seemed like an eternity, doesn't feel like this is ever going to end and I've been quite down. I'm trying my best to stay focused on Christ and keep praying that He'll pull me through this. How are things with you?
Have you considered using Stevia by Sweet Leaf? It comes in powder form like sugar or in drops. I have used and now like both. In the beginning I was not too crazy about the taste as I was a sugar user and never used aspartame. Eventually I learned to love Stevia and if I ever eat something with sugar (which is very rare) it almost taste too sweet.
How are you doing with the protocol and the other fun things that go along with this? Please continue to ask questions and keep us updated on your progress.
In Christ Love,
I am still a little confused about the sugar. How about raw organic honey? Is that ok or should I be staying away from anything with sugar?
I am glad to hear that you are moving in the right direction. That's encouraging. I continue to keep you in my prayers. If I can do anything to help just let me know.
Sounds like you are doing wonderfully. Keep up the great accomplishments. Perseverance, diligence and faith in God are key to fighting this disease. I will continue to keep you in my prayers.
In Christ Love,
No worries! I'm nowhere near giving up.... The good Lord is carrying me through this and I believe I was directed toward this site for a reason.
Please, don't give up on Brian's song. We all need you. I know you are in the fight for your life. You can can work through all the modes and come back singing higher and better than ever.
If one can change the way they look at things, they can change their life. Don't discount the power of positive thinking. The converse is also true. Don't lose your hope.
It has been a month since I've been on the protocol and while I'm not 100% well, I do notice a difference. I still see the mites moving under my skin, but I haven't seen much black specks when washing or had as much crawling/biting lately. That's a step in the right direction!
I start on the MMS tomorrow - from what I hear, this is the good stuff and I'm pretty excited. Been battling this for 4 months now! Wish me luck
Thank you for the info... I've been using the Odoban (lavender) for a while now to wash my clothes. I keep running out of Kleen Green, goes so fast and so expensive!
I know it will get better - I believe God has a plan for me...there's a reason for all of this and I just need to get trusting in HIM. I will say - I'm learning to trust in Him even when I don't understand. Thank you all for helping me out... I have so many questions
As you start getting better from the inside, the environment gets better as well. With this disease it takes working it from the inside out and the outside in. I spray by baseboards with Kleen Green in the morning and night. Every other day I stray the baseboards with Kleen Green and Odoban. You can purchase Odoban from Home Depot. I use the Lavender scent in my clothes as well. It cost about $9.99 per gallon and last me over a month. Follow the directions for diluting it.
Another helpful tip is to get a swifter dry mop and use the Kleen Green & Odoban to mop your floors. It cuts down on time and cleaning as this was stressful for me in the beginning.
You might want to stop looking so closely at the debris exiting your body. I totally agree with you.......Science fiction and you have the lead role.....but it is stressful and believe me I can tell you it is the strangest thing you will probably ever see. They good news is that there truly is a science behind this and the more you understand the science; the less stressful it becomes.
If you are not bagging your clothes; I would recommend you try this until things are better. I bag the dirty clothes after spraying with Kleen Green and zip it closed until I do the laundry. In order to be cost effective I purchase the jumbo storage bags from Target as they hold more clothes. Then when it is time for laundry, I unzip the bags and put them in the washer. In the beginning, I bagged my clean clothes as well. However, now I only have to bag my under garments and night clothes as my environment has gotten better. I still spray my jeans etc., before hanging them in the closet. I spray my closest at least 2 times per day with Kleen Green and keep the door closed.
It does get better Brian, but you must be diligent with your routine. I think it is wonderful that you are posting here. This is an important part in your recovery.
May God continue to Bless you.
In Christ Love,
The diet can be overwhelming and a bit confusing especially early on when we are dealing with brain fog.
Additionally EVERYONE is different and has an individual response to various foods.... However, after reading, reading and reading some more I found that the general consensus was to eliminate all grains (including brown and whole wheat rices), dairy, sugar, processed foods and fruits other than lemon, lime and avocados early on. It is also best to limit your meat intake to twice a week.
You will eventually be able to add some of these things back in to your diet as you begin to heal and eliminate the fungal overgrowth we all seem to have.
Some good threads that I think are VERY beneficial are as follows.... (Just put these in the search engine above.)
- "Dietary Articles For New People" by Tawney
- Food For Thought
- For the Newly Stricken
- Newbie Here
- New Recipes for 2016/2017
Hope this helps and I agree with Cate, keep doing what your doing as your healing journey is definitely under way!!
Love, Peace & MANY Prayers,
Thanks. I am trying to be in a good place. The good news is, the mites are coming out of my skin when bathing, etc. The bad news is - I can't get them out of my environment. They have some type of protective "film" around them. I've sprayed them with everything imaginable, including MMS. NOTHING IS KILLING THEM! This really concerns me.....I can't even wipe them up. This is like some crazy science fiction movie!
I just wanted to say I love to read your posts. Every time I see a new post to “ Brians Song” I stop, drop and roll to read it. I think it’s because you are so real and everyone that posts under your “song” are so involved and caring for your progress . It’s a beautiful thing to watch. It is so obvious that you are a true warrior fighting this battle.
Your battle with smoking and questions about the little hairs, glutathione, diet.., all bring out the best in everyone and you get answers that are totally relevant to all of us. Keep on posting!
Thank you Brian.
It sounds like you are doing all the right things. If you get the chance, try to check out the recipes, under "articles and diet"...there's some great ideas about dishes/foods you can incorporate into your diet, and some great food options out there, which may minimize your cravings for other things.
A few satisfying snacks that are good, and easy to make include:
- toasted almonds: buy raw slivered blanched almonds (almonds without the outer skin, that have not been roasted). These can be purchased by the bag or in bulk section of a health food store. Dry roast them in the oven, or on the stove, with a bit of pink Himalayan, or sea salt, and you have a nice snack.
-toasted sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds (same as above, using raw sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds).
- raw hazelnuts, walnuts or pecans.
- toasted coconut flakes: purchase unsweetened coconut flakes at the health food store. Add some Himalayan or sea salt, and lightly dry roast them on low heat for about 5-10 minutes, until they are lightly browned. Heating the coconut brings out the natural oils and sweetness, and this is a great sweet/salty snack
- celery with almond butter
- seaweed snacks (health food store)
- baked goods (see the "recipes" section, under "articles and diet")
Keep doing what you're doing...you're in a good place...
Chrissie, thanks for the great info and examples. I'm trying to cut down on the meat - but at least it's organic chicken and beef. I guess I was confused mainly over the whole wheat organic rice with quinoa. I love the taste, but hope it's not harming me in any way.
Like Thomas I too have Lyme and candida issues as well as morgellons and therefore I don't eat any fruit at all apart from limes, lemons, avocado and tomatoes.
If I eat fruit I get candida problems and the itching and biting on skin is worse.
I also have to follow a low carb diet. So no potatoes or other starchy veg like carrots or squash as they turn quickly to sugar in the body. I have a lot of cruciferous vegetables. I love roasted cauliflower with spices and coconut oil. Or even roasted Brussels sprouts or broccoli. If you put enough spices on them they are yummy.
I make kale chips instead of potato chips,with olive oil, sea salt and paprika and garlic powder, yum.
I don't eat brown rice anymore. I have quinoa very rarely and only a small amount. I watch my bean or lentil intake.
I have almonds, a few Brazil nuts (watch out some nuts can have fungal growth on them, almonds are best, peanuts are a no no, cashew nuts not good either).
Tahini sesame seed paste is good in plain yogurt or drizzled on salad with lemon juice. Sunflower seeds,flaxseed, sesame seeds, Pumpkin seeds I use to make seed flatbread, ground down with spices, sea salt and water, that's it.
My diet is limited, but you know you get used to it. And it becomes second nature once you get into the swing of it.
I have Lyme and Candida issues as well as Morgellons so I don't consume any fruit or sugar. I also cannot tolerate brown rice or beans. These things feed my diseases. I do consume quinoa. It is my only source of starch although it's not starch. It is a grain.
The way that I know I am having a reaction to food is my stomach hurts and I have crawling or biting mostly on my shins and feet but also other areas.
I hope this helps.
Thanks, it was just out of curiosity. I'm not going to mix anything with the protocol.
I am a little bit confused about the diet though.
I've been eating organic chicken and beef, 100% whole wheat rice with red quinoa and vegetables (yellow squash, broccoli, etc)
How about fruits? Don't they have sugar?
Also, is the whole wheat rice ok to eat? I've been getting mixed messages in regard to the fruits and rice.
Do you have any thoughts on this?
Concerning glutathione: This is a product from another website. It is from a different protocol. It is important not to mix protocols.
Yes there are benefits to glutathione but it will interfere with the protocol if you take it with Mel's protocol.
I know it's difficult to believe but your body Is responding to the protocol. Please try to refrain if at all possible to the desire of wanting to speed up the process by trying to add to the sum of the parts. Trust me. Most of us have done this very thing and it only impedes progress.
Please remember that it Will get worse before it will get better. When this happens remember better out than in. When this happens you will hate me for saying this, but it's true. Please Do Not give up hope.
Healing comes at a maddeningly slow rate. Try journaling progress so you can be encouraged. I journal right here on Mel's website so I don't have to worry about losing anything.
I hope this helps.
Thank you for all the great answers you've been providing... you really have been helpful!
About the bugs - this does make a lot of sense.
Thanks for clearing that up.
It is my understanding (explained to me by Peter a previous warrior)that the substance being purged from us contains polysaccharides. Polysaccharides consist of several sugar molecules which makes it sticky. Many times I have actually had to scrape the little black dots off of my floor and could not understand why it was so difficult to wipe up. Now it makes sense to me because I understand the science behind this.
One thing I can tell you; this disease has a great of amount of science involved in it. The more you learn about it the better you understand why this protocol works so well. It is based off of people who have already conquered this disease and they have the scientific facts to support it.
You might trying investing is Kleen Green for your environment and laundry. The people with Kleen Green are caring and offer a great discount when you use the code from this website.
It sounds like you are staying positive as you continue to heal. Some days you might actually feel like you are a star in some type of science fiction movie. This disease is that bizarre. But again once you understand the science, it all makes sense. Happy learning Brian!
"And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God." Luke 18:27
In Christ Love,
Someone please tell me I'm not going crazy. haha.
Ok, I've been having a tough time eliminating these bugs or whatever they are from my environment.I think The reason is, they actually get UNDER surfaces. Right now I am trying to get some out of my bathtub and I am wiping...yet nothing is happening.
It seems as if they are actually under the top layer of the tub or have some type of protective "bubble" around them.
Has anyone else experienced this?
In answer to your question; one of the products in this protocol contain glutathione. I would recommend you researching each of the Logo's products you are taking and gain a better understanding how each one works. I would not mix any other protocols as this will slow down your progress. Believe me I know how anxious you are for this to go away. But it is a process and you must remain patient. The protocol is designed to rebuild your bio-terrain and then slowly adding additional support within a certain amount of time.
Think of a person training for a marathon. These people get up everyday and have a strict routine they follow while increasing the amount of miles they run. It is done....slowly, steadily....and then success is theirs. If they tried running the marathon before conditioning every part of their body.....well you know they would be setting themselves up to fail. This disease is the same way. We must first introduce the required supplements.... slowly, steadily....and then success for us.
I know this is a nightmare and you would do anything to make it go away. Please remain on this website only as you search for answers. The old saying "too many cooks spoils the broth" definitely applies to this protocol. We all know how your are feeling. But the only way to succeed is slowly, steadily, and then success!
Begin posting your progress on this forum. Stay the course, do not veer off this path and put your trust in the Lord.
“In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.” Psalms 71:1
In Christ Love,
Has anyone heard of Glutathione?
Is this part of our protocol?
If not, would it be OK for me to use it and it not mess anything up?
I've heard some goods things about it.
Congratulations on your commitment to quit smoking!!!
I for one am definitely behind you and will offer you ANY and ALL support I can "but" I think EVERYTHING you need to refer to as you go to battle against the nicotine was in your very own post and I quote "you"...
"I know I won't get well if I keep on smoking, but they're so hard to put down."
You are 100% ACCURATE you won't get well if you keep smoking!!! We are battling a toxic disease and must rid our bodies of these HORRIFIC invaders, that will be absolutely IMPOSSIBLE by adding the following to your body with EACH and EVERY cigarette...
"Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins. These cigarette ingredients include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT."
Looking at this makes me think smoking is like inviting every friend, relative, neighbor, distant cousin, cousins cousin, etc. of morgellons to join the party THEY are throwing in our bodies while we literally walk around in a living hell..!!!
I was VERY fortunate as I quit smoking in May of 2001... I did use the nicotine patch at that time and definitely think it aided me in being a success story. However, the main reason I quit was because I made a commitment much like yourself. I had smoked for 19 years, started when I was 15 and quit when I was 34. It always bothered my Mom immensely that I smoked... she would beg me to quit and say that the cancer would take me quickly because I am so tiny. For MANY years to basically ease her mind while getting her off my back, of course, I would tell her... I'll quit when I'm 35... thinking this should buy me some time. She would ALWAYS express her concern and I would ALWAYS respond in the same manner. When I was 34 my Mom died suddenly and unexpectedly and it TRULY broke my heart that I did not quit smoking for her in her lifetime. I made a commitment to myself to quit smoking BEFORE I turned 35 and I did!!!! I tell you this because YOU can do it too!!!! I had tried a few times prior and even used the patch before but never quit because I never truly made the decision/commitment to do so.
If I was faced with quitting and morgellons at the same time I'm not so sure I would use the patch today... I'd probably be afraid of what the patch might also feed my already sick body but if it was the ONLY way I could quit I would definitely be in!!! I "really" like Tara's idea of Essential Oils as that would be an all natural approach. Additionally, when I quit I used the straw trick and it worked wonders... there is something about the hand to mouth connection that you must wean yourself off of. I had cut up straws lying all over; my car, my office, my bedroom, the living room, garage, etc.
One last thing I want to share... although I didn't have to battle the nicotine addiction and morgellons, I did have my own battle with a sugar addiction. 5 years prior to morgellons I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis which I now believe was the onset of Lyme. At that time I tightened up my diet by eliminating, all grains, dairy and sugar 80% of the time but would allow myself to eat what I wanted (mostly sweets because I loved sweets) 20% of the time. This kept my body CONSTANTLY craving sugar. Before I even found this Protocol or knew I had morgellons and Lyme I believed I was dealing with mites and I read that sugar feeds mites... so in April of 2016 I gave up sugar COMPLETELY. It was VERY hard!!! I would walk into the kitchen at work and see a plate of homemade chocolate chip cookies (my absolute favorite) and I would simply ask myself.... do I want to feel bugs crawling on my face or do I want to eat that cookie? I'm sure you know the answer. Thus I have asked myself the SAME question when it comes to anything I know that might hinder my healing in any way, shape or form!!!
I hope that some or all of this is helpful and I hope you know that you have a community of warriors here for you, praying for you and supporting you in your healing journey!!!! God Bless, my friend!!!!
Love, Peace & MANY Prayers,
We’re all behind you and cheering you on...you’ll do this!
I’ve never smoked but most of us have one kind of an addiction or another (mine is sugar), so I do have a little bit of understanding about the process of breaking an addiction.
I understand Wellbutrin is effective in helping break the neurotransmitter chain involved in addictive behaviors, including smoking. It’s a prescription drug, so you’ll have to go to a doctor to get it, but it may be worth the trouble.
If you’ve heard me on the conference calls and read my posts, you’ll know that I’m really convinced that prescription drugs don’t help a person get well from MD, and that they might even get in the way of making progress toward recovery.
However...this is different. I’ve been on it myself for anxiety...especially when I first got MD...when I was beside myself with worry, as most of us are especially at the beginning before finding answers.
I was even on it for a while with the protocol and it didn’t seem to interfere with my progress...and...it helped calm down my anxieties which was really helpful considering all the stress involved in having this disease.
I’m also convinced that stress is highly detrimental to recovery, so...doing anything we can to decrease stress is important.
Hope this helps, and keep us all posted on how you’re doing.
I'm so proud your pushing through this with the want/desire to quit smoking! A few things I know that some friends have used to quit is using the Black Pepper Essential Oil, also Purification, Clove and Lemon E.O.'s will help as well. Another way to help curve the want is to chew on straws when there's a craving, as it keeps your hands & mouth busy.
Hope this helps! God bless you & I'll pray for your desire to dissolve!!
I really need your prayers. I've been on the protocol for one week today, following it to a T.....except for smoking. I have an addiction to these things and I really want to stop. I know I won't get well if I keep on smoking, but they're so hard to put down.
I'm hoping to get some good replies here, I plan on referring back to these every time I get a strong craving. I really need all of your support!
I am sooooo happy to hear you found the answers you needed in a previous thread... they (the answers) REALLY are all here in this website and we are "truly" worth the investment of time and energy to seek them!!
All of the threads listed in Follow the Journeys have been EXTREMELY beneficial in my healing journey, so I "highly" recommend you continue to read, read, read as Mel tells us!!!
The fungal hairs/rhizoids you mention are VERY common and will definitely subside over time with following Mel's Protocol exactly as it is laid out for us, including the diet, water consumption and rest. Remember though it does and will get worse before it gets better and every fungal hair, rhizoid, filament, etc. that you see on the outside means one less on the inside... better out than in!!! Merely remove and dispose of them all while rejoicing YOU ARE HEALING!!! I do like to hit these foreign objects with Kleen Green prior to disposing of them just to be sure they are really a thing of my past!!!
Also Laura gave you great information about the importance of testing our pH. If we want to get well we have to have an alkaline body. For me that means eating good quality grass fed, organic, meats typically beef, salmon and occasionally chicken but only twice a week. Any more than that and my body remains too acidic thus disease grows. I stay away from turkey as I learned through The Truth About Cancer... they call it foul for a reason. You can google a list of alkaline and acidic foods to help you make good choices in this area. I personally test my pH twice a day and make my food choices according to the results I receive.
I hope this helps and I hope that you continue to learn, grow and heal here in this AMAZING community as soooo many others have done and are doing now!!!
Love, Peace & MANY Prayers,
I have learned from previous warriors the importance of food combinations as well as keeping your PH in a healthy range. I am including a previous post from John Burgstiner on foods and the importance of PH.
"There is near universal agreement that citrus fruits are alkalizing, but considerable confusion as to why. Citrus fruits are acidic; lemons and limes have a pH of around 2 (pH 7 is neutral). So how could they be alkalizing?
Your stomach is an organ that is designed to produce acid to break down proteins and other nutrients before they enter the small intestine. The small intestine is designed to be alkaline, so as to break down the nutrients even further to facilitate absorption into the bloodstream for transport to the cells.
Stomach acid (HCL) has a pH of around 1. Your stomach normally maintains a pH of around 2 to facilitate the digestive process. Foods that are whole and natural, unadulterated, and high in acid (like lemons, kiwis, grapefruit, etc.) are easy to digest because they cause so little stress to the stomach. Little or no additional acid is needed for digestion, and consequently, less neutralizing is required in the small intestine.
Problems occur when 'alkalizing' and 'alkaline' are used interchangeably. Alkaline foods and beverages call for more stomach acid, and may contribute to acidification of body fluids and tissues down the line. But eating more alkaline foods is just what many are recommending, with potentially dangerous consequences. Alkalizing the stomach puts extra stress on the entire system.
Failure to break down proteins and fats in the stomach due to the use of anti-acids is considered by many experts in the field of nutrition to be a leading contributor to the development of colorectal cancer. Disrupting the acid balance in the stomach is bound to have negative effects, and especially if it becomes a regular routine.
Bottom line, if we eat the mineral rich foods that our creator intended for us to eat, we will maintain a slightly alkaline blood pH without causing undue stress on the body. If we eat processed, demineralized and devitalized "food" our bodies must rob from their own resources to survive.
So, rather than buying expensive alkalizing pills or water, the best way to prevent buildup of acid wastes is to eat God's foods. If you want to supplement your diet or use something to offset poor choices, the best way to go is to start your day with a high quality greens drink." John B 8/25/2011
Hope this information helps you.
In Christ Love,
On the morning dose of WPS I ran into the same problem for my husband.
I mix it right before he leaves & put it in an insulated cup.
Mel is right about using cold water. I keep a jar in the refrigerator for taking the WPS. I put a small amount of ice and the mixed WPS in the cup so he can take it at 10am while he is on the job.
It's been working great. I also do the same thing if I need to run errands and my dose falls while I'm gone from the house.
Also by splitting the drops, it's not nearly as strong smelling either. In the insulated mug no one would be able to smell it. You could take it with you to your desk everyday.
Just a thought. Hope it helps.
Thanks for the reply. It's funny, I was JUST reading Monica's posts on purging fungal hairs. I get it now! As far as the diet goes, I've been eating only organic turkey and chicken. Is this ok or should I be limiting myself on any kind of meat?
Although I am not familiar with your particular symptom, I believe these are referred to as "Rhizoids" or fungal hairs. If you type Rhizoids into the search engine you will find information in the thread titled "How Lucky Can You Get?"
Everyone in this community experiences a variety of symptoms with this disease. Some are different while others have similar characteristics. I hope you have started changing your diet along with taking the protocol.
I also recommend that you start reading other people's journeys and soon you will make many connections to what you are experiencing. Once you make the positive changes suggested on this website along with taking the protocol; things do get better.
Please understand it no longer matters how you ended up with this disease. I also experienced the whole mite situation and it took me over 18 months before finding this community. Now I look forward to the conference calls and learning from other members. There is a true science behind this disease.
May God bless you and I pray you find comfort in His holy word.
In Christ Love,
Oh yes...we all experience crazy things that we dare not share with anyone else outside this forum because no one would believe it.
The easy answer here is...yes...they'll go away.
Just do everything Mel says...especially and including the WPS when it's the right time. Do it in the recommended way and go slowly...but don't neglect taking it like I can be guilty of because it tastes so bad.
If I take the WPS on a regular basis, those freaky things diminish considerably. Now I just need to do it enough to take it across the finish line. If I'm honest with myself, that's probably why I still have this disease...not taking the WPS like I should...though I'm SO much better...I'm still not completely well yet.
It's really hard for me to take the twice a day dose though...because one dose falls when I'm at work. It smells so bad, I have to figure out a way to go out to my car to take it...and my work schedule won't always allow me to take the needed break at the appropriate time.
I've never smoked, but I feel like I'm sneaking off to smoke a cigarette or something. Because of this, the split dose doesn't work for me...so I went back to the old way of just taking it at night. I think the split dose makes things easier and faster in the long run...but I just cannot do the morning dose and work...so...I'm night only.
Be sure to take all of your supplements too...because the WPS kills off pathogens...and they release toxicity into your body when they die. Your body needs to be ready to handle it. That's another reason I like taking it at night only. I don't feel it as much...not as much "herxie" feeling when I take it at night.
Lots of water will keep these toxins flushed out...so make yourself do that too.
I've heard people say it's best not to get too obsessed about the things that emerge from your skin. That's probably a good idea...though I'm the exfoliation queen.
If you use coconut oil and some essential oils, etc., you will be able to extract some of this from your skin. It's hard not to get obsessed with doing this because there's always the thought behind it that you'll eventually get everything out and this whole nightmare will go away.
However...this is all over the inside our bodies, so the idea that one could pull all of it out through one exit point on the skin is unrealistic. Mel has told me to stop that...and to let as much of it as I can stay inside and then "gas 'em." That means the WPS. When you take WPS internally, it'll go into your digestive system, then bloodstream,and then to other parts of your body and you'll be able to hit them where they live, so to speak.
One way to chase the pathogens "inside" us with with cold. They hate cold water...which is why Mel says to put your head under the faucet of cold running water when you first wake up. I do that and then spray my hair with 91% alcohol and it really helps.
The pathogens also hide out in biofilm inside your body and on your skin...but Magnifizyme is a biofilm buster...so that'll flush them out of their hiding places. The WPS will nuke them and all the water will flush them out.
Magnifizyme comes a little later in the program...so talk to Mel about how to start all that.
Not an easy party for our organs...hence all the other supplements...though that's kind of an over simplification.
I'm trying to limit myself on my exfoliation because I can sometimes do it so much, my skin will start bleeding in tiny spots where the biofilm emerges. That, and the fact that I never seem to get to the end of it when I'm pulling it out of my skin puts me in a very upset frame of mind. For one thing it hurts like crazy after a while, and for another thing the idea that there is so much of this stuff in my body upsets me quite a bit, so I'm working on leaving this practice in my past. Mel told me to just let it emerge naturally and to leave it alone...let the WPS do it's job on the inside of the body.
In any case...all the glittery glowing stuff is really attention getting. I have...I kid you not...pink glitter that comes out of my skin periodically.
So...I've decided there needs to be a Morgellons Barbie...just push a button and pink glitter spews out everywhere.
No, You are not crazy.
We all experience a multitude of different things with this disease. it is systemic and affects every part of us.
Yes the silver things, the black things, the white things that cover our clothes,bodies,computers etc.are All part of the same thing.
Our hair moves seemingly of its own accord too.
All these things reduce and disappear once we are along the road to recovery.
The weeks, months pass and if you stick rigidly to the protocol and the diet.
Get as much sleep and rest as possible then all these nasties disappear.
Try vit D 3 pills and magnesium tablets to help sleep.
If sleep won't come then read through posts on this site or listen to the recorded calls.
There are answers for all your questions!!!
Put your query into the search box and the answers will come.
I spent many many sleepless nights either crying or on this site or listening to music. Prayer helps.
Now I sleep like a baby apart from those days before around full moon time when the itches and pains are a nuisance. Or when I slip up on diet.
In a few months time you will find you are on the way to wellness.
Never think this is not real. It is a very nasty disease that takes all your strength of character to overcome.
Thanks to Mel, John and Peter you will find all the help you need.
Just have faith and hope and let love surround you.
Ok, either I'm going crazy or I have these shiny things on my arms & legs that look like hairs. They actually move... Noticed it in the shower.
Did anyone else experience This? If so, did they ever go away?
First of all; please realize from this day forward it does not matter what infected you. I also know it was some type of straw or bird mite that initially caused the problem. I have had to overcome and accept the mite no longer matters. You must restore you bio terrain and immune system. We have been bitten by bugs and mites most of our lives. It is only when we have a poor immune system that these parasites are able to cause problems for us. So please understand the importance of curing this disease from the inside out....and the rest will take care of itself.
You are better off than most since you found this website early. Please stay strong because it is definitely a roller coaster ride. Do not let the tough days cause you to stress, as we all have them. You must remain patient and persevere.
I would spray the carpets with Kleen Green and Odoban. The following information is from the Kleen Green's website which will provide important information for you to read. "Insects are made up of a high concentration of protein. When Kleen Green™ is introduced to an insect, the enzymes act and cause the insect to molt (shed its outer coating) prematurely." The following is information on Odoban which can be purchased at Home Depot: "Cleans, disinfects, sanitizes and deodorizes all hard, nonporous household surfaces. Eliminates unpleasant odors on washable surfaces such as upholstery, carpets, bedding, showers, walls and floors."
You may want to wait before bathing in the WPS. It is important to start the protocol, change your diet, get plenty of rest, and keep your environment clean. Then have a discussion about when you should bath in the WPS. You may use Kleen Green on your skin as this works great for me.
We are all here for you whenever you are feeling lost, confused, or just need people to understand what you are going through. I also believe our strength comes from God who has the power and can heal us; but we must ask and listen.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.” Ephesians 6:10
Welcome to our community. I pray for you to cross that finish line in restoring your health and ultimately regaining your life.
In Christ Love,
I just ordered the M Support Kit, along with the silver and WPS.
I understand I cannot use it internally until my 2nd month.
Has anyone tried bathing in it?
I've read some good things online.
Would it mess up my protocol in any way?
Also, what is the suggestion for killing anything that may be in carpeting?
I'm getting an apartment and I want to make sure I don't infest the carpets.
It was a pleasure being part of my first conference call.
There was so much great information.
About the wps, how many drops of wps and citric acid do I put in a bowl. Also, does this go in each room? My house is 1300 as ft.
I also have a question about the disease in general.
I'm infected by bird mites, so is this considered Morgellons?
How will the protocol kill these mites under my skin and on the outside?
I'm just a bit confused, but I'm learning as I go along!
