Morgellons disease is a horrific illness that is gripping people of all ages and backgrounds. When
patients go to their doctor covered with lesions and complaining of
insects crawling under their skin, they are typically written off as
mentally unstable and labeled with "Delusions of Parasitosis".
Thus begins a seemingly endless nightmare of suffering and isolation that is devastating families worldwide with increasing frequency.
Disease is first and foremost a physiological terrain problem. The body
physiology of Morgellons patients is being altered so they become an
accommodating medium for the growth of soil and plant based pathogens
that don't normally belong in humans.
immunity appears to be the foremost contributing factor that "sets the
stage" or "opens the door"... first to vector born or environmentally
inflicted fungal, viral or mycoplasmic infection, and then to a variety
of opportunistic chronic infections and parasitic infestation.
research has exposed limitations in our past efforts to accurately
categorize microorganisms based on common cellular or metabolic
features, and genetic engineering has in some cases even begun to blur
the distinction between plant and animal phyla.
how and why these plant based organisms are finding a home in human
hosts, the question remains as to how to safely and permanently
eradicate them, remove their toxic byproducts, and restore normal
physiological balance to the human bioterrain.
an alkaline pH seems to be a critical factor. it certainly has proven
to be therapeutic in maintaining ideal soil conditions for healthy
plants. Perhaps the most critical self-regulating function the body has
to perform is the removal of metabolic wastes and maintaining an
internal environment that is slightly alkaline.
is our creator's design and intent; making our bodies unfriendly
territory to destructive viruses, bacteria and fungi and virtually
impregnable to disease. Unfortunately, the foods most of us are eating
and our chemically and often emotionally toxic environment aggressively
promotes acidity in the body.
Factors Complicating Morgellons Treatment
and adrenal suppression seem to be a common denominator among many
Morgellons patients, and may in fact be the underlying cause of immune
deficiency that opens the door to their normally unwelcome guests.
to recent case studies published in the Journal of Case Reports, low
body temperature, immune suppression and elevated inflammatory markers
were common to virtually all the patients studied.
who has endured marathon struggles with candida overgrowth can attest
to the difficulty of displacing established fungal infections,
especially when underlying challenges such as heavy metal toxicity
provide favorable conditions even when stringent dietary restrictions
are followed (See Candida Cleanse Protocol).
candidiasis patients can also testify to the burdening effect that
chronic low level fungal infection causes on the immune system. Fungal
mycotoxins are xenoestrogens which further suppress thyroid function,
leading to secondary opportunistic infections.
soil-based bacteria and the parasitic organisms such as collembola or
rotifer which feed on them have evolved incredible mechanisms to
withstand prolonged harsh conditions, and are capable of surviving in a
dormant state for extended periods.
Fungi and bacteria have
demonstrated amazing adaptive capabilities long before the advent of
genetic engineering. Once they claim a welcome home in a human host,
these proven survivors can be difficult to displace.
Biofilms Increase Antibiotic Resistance
complicating Morgellons treatment is the biofilm potential of
microorganisms. According to leading research, when bacteria are
organized in biofilms, they produce highly effective biochemical
substances which individual bacteria are unable to produce alone.
the dense extracellular matrix and the outer layer of cells in a
biofilm protect the interior of the community, antibiotic resistance can
be reportedly be increased 1000 fold. It has recently been shown that
biofilms are present on the removed tissue of 80% of patients undergoing
surgery for chronic sinusitis.
No Silver Bullet!
these reasons, and I hate to say this, I do not see a silver bullet
coming that will all at once, wipe out the various infections and
infestations, their future life cycles (eggs) and immediately restore
integrity to immunity and normal physiology to the body of a Morgellon's
However, that is not to say that there is no hope!
of all, when all is said and done, we will find that this and many
other "modern diseases" are the end product of the arrogance and
ignorance of man. Faced with the limitations of man's wisdom and
resources, and with the fact that man alone is made in the image of
God's triune nature - with an eternal spirit and the unique ability to
create - we must in the end look back to the Creator of all things for
answers and for restoration.
Many millions can testify to the veracity of the promise "Peace
I leave with you; My peace I give to you: not as the world gives do I
give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid"
(John 14:27). These immortal words of Jesus capture the essence of the
truth that all who place their burdens at His feet are immediately
transformed and ultimately healed.
Others have pointed out the
truth that we are spiritual beings on a physical journey, and further
exploration of temporal healing is pointless without first addressing
the source of all permanent healing.. Like the wildly popular Toby Mac
song says, "I don't want to gain the whole world and lose my soul".
Restoring the Bioterrain
antifungal and antimicrobial agents such as oil of oregano, olive leaf
and grapefruit seed extracts, nanonized silver, and stabilized oxygen
products such as MMS may be effectively used to directly oppose the
various microbial threats. However, if steps are not taken to restore
normal physiology at the cellular level, a Morgellons sufferer will
likely be consigned to an ever repeating cycle of infection and
don't have the option of sterilizing our bodies the way we can
sterilize soil in order to exterminate pathogens and get a fresh start,
but we can take steps to restore normal physiology in the body (as is
done in soil) by eating alkalizing foods and introducing critical
nutrients to promote detoxification pathways.
We can use
probiotics (friendly bacteria) and digestive enzymes to restore mucosal
immunity, reduce inflammation and improve our ability to get nutrients
to our cells.
can take omega-three fats to help control inflammation and improve
circulation. We can take amino acids such as L-glutamine or Whey Protein
Isolate to rebuild the integrity of the intestinal lining. We can take
antioxidants to neutralize harmful free radicals that steal cellular
We can take vitamins and key minerals like magnesium
and iodine to balance our pH and thyroid function and fuel cellular
energy production. We can take herbs and thymus glandular extract to
restore integrity to the immune response.
are the foundational pathways of health: strong and balanced immunity,
proficient absorption and assimilation of nutrients, unhindered
(cellular) energy production, efficient removal of toxic wastes and
environmental contaminants, and strong bones, which act as a storehouse for alkalizing minerals and a maturation site for immune cells.
because of the intransigent and pleomorphic nature of the microbes and
parasitic organisms involved with Morgellons, don't expect a first round
knockout, but a multiple round epic struggle. With each round, the
fungal load gets a little lower; with each round, the viral load gets a
little lower; with each round, the battle field is a little more level
until finally the immune system is no longer outnumbered and outflanked.
With faithful determination and by God's grace, this is a battle worth fighting; it is a battle that can be and is being won.
