Morgellons has been a mysterious disease that has confused and stumped the medical
centers for years. I started this blog because I was determined to find a logical explanation and share my experiences. I have told you about my journey tracking Morgellons but I haven't told you the treatments I have tried or how I have healed my body to the point of functioning in life again!! As this adds to a person's credibility, I should have shared this information first. In this blog, I am going to tell you my personal story and the road I have traveled for recovery. I have delayed sharing some of this information out of embarrassment - but that is precisely why this disease has stayed in the shadows for so long. The CDC claims this is an extremely rare disease with few cases nationwide. With the amount of activity this website has received, I can tell you that is an absolute joke. I will not let shame hold me back any longer. Morgellons is an all-invasive disease that is contagious, infects anything organic, and has required a complete overhaul of my body and home to regain control of my life. This is my story...
3.5 yrs ago I had a seizure in my front yard and quit breathing. My teenage kids took action and while one of them gave me CPR, the other one phoned 911. It was terrifying for them. I have an autoimmune disease with degenerative discs in my back which has caused me to be on a lot of pain medication. At the time Morgellons scars and lesions were covering my legs, arms, back, butt, and face. When I woke up in the hospital, I was in the hot seat because the Doctor assumed I was a drug addict. No matter what my daughter told them - the hospital would not believe that I hadn't overdosed until my drug test came back negative. I was still confronted by the Doctor the next day and I didn't know what to say. How about this? I have bugs in my arms and I have been digging them out? Or, I have Morgellons and I have decided to find the cause? I knew better than to say anything regarding Morgellons. I have kids with potential child custody issues. I lied to the Dr and told him I had bad skin from my autoimmune disease. The Doctor was angry and could tell I wasn't being honest. This put a lot of stress on me because I live in a small town and gossip spreads like wildfire. And boy did the overdose rumor grow and spread.... However, this turned out to be a life-changing situation for me. Because I was scared and embarrassed, I decided it was time to make changes in my life.
I also knew that it was just a matter of time before the police came calling. I know how gossip works in my small town so I had no doubt they would come knocking on my door in the near future. I was worthy of big gossip too! People love when successful individuals fall. I had been very successful in business, especially in rural America. So the rumors spread quickly that I was an overdosing, drug addict. Who wouldn't want to talk about that? Of course, my negative drug test was never part of the gossip! Prior to getting sick, I had acquired almost a million dollars in real estate, developed a subdivision, flipped several homes, and renovated an old fire station for commercial office space - mostly while being a single woman. I was the manager of 2 mortgage offices and worked for one of the nation's top 10 Morgage Banks. I was their #1 FHA lender bank-wide in 2006. My reward was a trip to Puerto Vallarta the next year but I was too sick to enjoy it!!
Just like anything else, I tried to tackle my illness head-on. But when you have as much stress in your life that my employment brought, it was not an easy task. I tried everything the Doctors recommended including flying to New York City to see a specialist and spent 3 weeks at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ. I had almost died from a reaction to auto-immune regulators and was hospitalized for several weeks. I was in such bad shape I was given 120 mg of steroids intravenously for 2 weeks then sent home on the max dose. Guess what happened? I developed severe Cushing's Syndrome which destroyed my bones - including my teeth. After many dental problems, failed root canals and broken teeth I decided to get implants. I cashed in $39,000 of my 401K and proceeded to surgery. The Surgeon was more than happy to take my money but failed to disclose that I was a poor candidate for implants due to my health and low bone density. Less than a year later I was in the hospital again diagnosed with "failure to thrive." When they discovered the infection in my sinus cavity and jaw, all of the implants were removed. At the lovely age of 39 I had to get dentures. And as if the situation couldn't get any worse, my lower gum was destroyed after they removed the bottom implants so I could only wear an upper denture. As you can all imagine, I finally crumbled. Within the year I was deemed to be disabled and quit working.
I downsized into one of my rental homes and felt sorry for myself. As if that wasn't enough, right? The home I moved into was infested with Morgellons. I had lost my job, my teeth, my looks, and now was telling family members I had bugs in my skin! They believed I had lost my mind. I laid down in life for a few years and became a recluse. I ended my marriage and moved closer to my parents. I was only too happy to take all the pain medicine prescribed to me because it numbed my emotions. My kids were the only thing that kept me alive. And then the day came when they had to see me die in the front yard from a massive seizure - what a wake-up call! Because I had turned away from God, I had to beg for forgiveness. I was in over my head with Morgellons and asked God to help me. I promised Him that I would give Him the credit if He could help me figure out Morgellons. I quit all pain meds which helped my brain to function again. This was a very hard and painful experience considering I had 3 compression fractions in my back thanks to CPR. 6 months later I gave up on the medical community because they couldn't help me as long as the CDC took the stance that Morgellons was "Delusional Parasitosis." I decided to visit a Homeopathic Center in Boise, ID. They started me in the right direction with supplements and I let God continue to guide me in recovery.
Because I am disabled, I can't afford expensive treatments but that hasn't seemed to hinder my treatment. When I was still struggling with brain fog, I could feel God working in my life. For example, I had a fire in my attic last year. It didn't do a lot of damage but I had to have the insulation replaced. In the cleanup process, we discovered my furnace and ductwork were defective. A month later when my air conditioning unit quit working, I reached out to the Community Action Agency because the summer heat was making me sick. I had spent all my money on the fire deductible and was hoping I could get help with a wall A/C unit. To my surprise, they inspected my existing heat system and installed a new furnace with central air. They also relocated the ductwork under my home which dried out the crawlspace. Within 2 months I had all new insulation, a new heating/cooling system and my crawl space was no longer a breeding ground for parasites! I could never afford all that!
God wasn't done yet. I was struggling to pay my bills and cover the fire deductible. To make matters worse, the entire month of July the compressor on my A/C unit was burning up and I didn't know it. It caused my power bill to be crazy high and I was broke. I sold a few items on eBay to help cover these costs. A complete stranger from California mailed me an extra $500 after she purchased a lamp from me. I cried and thanked God for His help. I also sincerely asked Him what He wanted me to do and I immediately felt the need to share my story. So I am! I have never created a blog or web page before. But with help from my son, we got the job done! I will quit talking about my life, but I wanted to give everyone some hope. If God can help me with my mess - He can help you too!
I have shared the importance of cleaning your environment for successful treatment. I have shared everything I have done to my home in previous blogs. Die-off can be severe and if you don't treat your home, you could be creating a vicious cycle. I wanted to bring you a simple solution but I don't have one. Remember these are bugs that lay a huge number of eggs and have complicated life cycles. It will take time to feel better. So whatever treatment you do, stick to it. There are many ways to kill a bug - you need to find the best one for your body. For example, I am uncomfortable swallowing items sold for my pets. I have had so many medical problems, I am scared to try most things. My approach is all-natural and may work with supplements you are already taking. Everyone's body is different with its own list of medical problems. Ask God to guide you and find someone to help you like a Homeopathic Doctor or Health Food Store. I am learning a lot about Herbs/Oils but I am not an expert or Doctor. Ask a ton of questions so you know how they will affect you. And above all else: LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. I try every supplement 1 at a time. How else do you know which ingredients work or which one caused an
allergic reaction? Keep a journal and take notes so your brain fog doesn't get in the way of your treatment.
The pictures above show my skin and the scars. The 2nd picture is of my arm and you can see +how large some of the lesions were based on the scars. The 4th picture is of my other arm right before I drained the swollen abscess. Picture 1 shows all the larva that came out of that abscess. I no longer develop swollen sores this large nor do I leave small outbreaks alone like the ones on my knee in Picture 3. Now that I am better, I only get a few surface lesions that I treat right away. Mostly, I get them when I travel or go to other people's homes that are infested. If you are told to leave them alone - I want you to remember the pictures above. A little cinnamon oil or peppermint/tea tree oil will kill the parasites. In a few days, the scab will start to shrivel and you can lift the edges and pull it out. This isn't the best choice because you don't want to start an infection, but as you can see a clump of parasites will eventually cause their own infection. The best choice is to never let it get that bad to begin with!
CINNAMON KILLS MORGELLON FIBERS
The Picture to the left is after I started treatment. Fibers were exiting my body in mass amounts - but especially from my lesions. I had to clean the wounds every few hours because they would just fill back up with fibers. This lasted for a few days but it has never been that bad again. If you magnify the picture you can see a few sacs attached to the fibers. So what did I take to achieve these results? I will outline below the "daily" and "as needed" oral herbs and oils. I will also describe the topical treatments and bath additives that I use. Many parasites and fibers will exit your body so try not to get upset and think something is wrong. This is good news because you want them out. Don't stop taking the supplements - even if they start coming out of your mouth and eyes!
1) NutriRise Ashwagandha: 2 capsules each morning
This contains Ashwagandha and Black Pepper. Ashwagandha is very important as it will
help your body handle the stress of Morgellons. It helps with depression, anxiety, mood,
and memory. It lowers your blood sugar and cortisol levels. It has also shown it fights
bacteria, fungal and viral infections including a few parasites like malaria. This one will
help give you the stamina that you will need to treat your home. ++Very Important++
2) Healths Harmony St. John's Wort: 2 Capsules Morning/ 2 Capsules Late Afternoon
This is 1000 mg twice a day. I recommend starting at a lower dose. It does have drug
interactions so check that out before starting. This herb has many great benefits and
is used as a cure-all. It's known as an anti-depressant, mood stabilizer, and anxiety
reducer. But it is also used as an anti-parasitic, anti-viral/bacterial and has amazing skin
benefits with healing properties. This is why I started using it. You can find Skin Salve on
Etsy made from St John's Wort. The Salve healed my skin and the capsules helped my
eyes. I could drive at night again! Studies show it helps clear sinuses and heals ear
infections - not to mention its high in vitamin A which is great for the eyes!!
3) NOW Oregano Oil w Ginger & Fennel: 2 Capsules 2 or 3 times a day
Oregano was the 1st Supplement I started taking and it is amazing. I have hardly been
sick for the past 3 years. It cured my sinus infections and I no longer have yeast or bladder
infections. It is considered a natural antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, minor pain relief,
and anti-carcinogen. Oregano helps your gut and is an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and
anti-parasitic. Whichever Oregano you take make sure it's high in Carvacrol. This is
what breaks down the bacterial bio-film protecting the parasites.
4) AGOBI Ceylon Cinnamon 3600mg: 2 Capsules 2 or 3 times a day
Cinnamon helps with a lot including reducing Cholesterol, regulates Blood Sugar, Eye
and Bone support, but it kills Morgellons immediately! Because of my success taking this
I also use cinnamon essential oil. I add it to my shampoo and I also put it directly on
lesions. The picture above is after I started cinnamon. It cleared the lesions from my face -
the 1st time in years. I no longer see the floaties in my eyes either. This spice is important!
++Cinnamon needs to be started slowly - it burned my fingers and turned them red at 1st.
Taking it with food is important too. I had mass tingling/itching which was fibers exiting
my skin. Lint roll your skin or inside your pants so you can see if this is the cause. Your
hands can be greatly infected so check everything out before you quit taking it.
5) CoQ10 300mg: I Capsule 2x/Day
This is a naturally occurring compound in our body that helps generate energy. As we
age this compound can be depleted which can lead to disease. It is recommended to
most heart patients and is now used to help slow the progression of Alzheimer's and
Parkinsons symptoms. It has truly helped fire up my brain and reduce brain fog. I was so
worried about the neurological symptoms I was experiencing that I decided to be very proactive. I can handle all of my other medical problems but ONLY if my brain is functioning and if I have the energy to get out of bed. I can't live without CoQ10!
6) Vitamin B - Super Complex: 1 a day
7) Daily Multi-Vitamin: 1 a day
8) Vitamin D, Zinc, and Potassium: Recommended Dose on Bottle
Many of us are vitamin and mineral deficient from parasites. I don't tolerate iron well
but it would be a good one to take along with calcium.
9) Tylenol: Recommended Dose on Bottle
Infection causes sweating from low-grade fevers that you might not notice. This happens from lesions and during die-off.
10) Stool Softener: Recommended Dose on Bottle
Charcoal and dehydration from sweating can constipate you. You must keep hydrated
and drink lots of fluids. Your body needs to expel the toxins so you can't let your bowels
get backed up.
11) Barlow Herbals LDM 100 Tincture: 5-10 Drops/Day - Follow Instructions
This tincture comes from the root Lomatium dissectum and had been used by Native
Americans for years. In the 1917-1918 Flu Pandemic the Washoe Tribes successfully
used the root with great success while everyone else was dying. It is a powerful
anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. It stops the growth of all bacteria, viruses and fungus in
the body. This is very powerful and I used it in the beginning. If you don't like the taste -
you can let it absorb through your skin. During the1st week you can develop a rash so please read the label. It only happens once and is very rare!
12) Bentonite Clay (Food Grade): 2tsp Mixed in Water, Every 4-6 Hrs As Needed
This is similar to Charcoal. It will relieve your upset stomach in minutes during Die-Off.
It absorbs the toxins out of your stomach and system. I took this every 4 hrs for the1st
week when I started Supplements. Today I use it as a paste. If I have a lesion or red,
infected area, I pack it in the Clay paste until it dries. It pulls out the toxins and puss,
biofilm and larva while it dries. This works great on your throat too!
13) Coffee Enemas: Stainless Steel Kit on Amazon along with Coffee for Enemas 1x/day
The Homeopathic Clinic I visited told me that coffee enemas would be my lifesaver.
I ignored it until I was very sick. When I researched it, I found that its benefits are more than just from emptying bowels. It cleans the biofilm out of the end of your colon
and the acid & caffeine absorb through the hemorrhoidal veins and stimulates the liver to dump toxins. This means your liver works more effectively to remove toxins PER the
pamphlet I received! An enema stops a headache and makes me feel better all day. It is truly a lifesaver!! I did 1 per day for 30 Days straight then only as needed.
14) Peanut Butter - Emergency Skin Treatment
Call me crazy but when you are desperate and crawling with fibers leaving your body,
peanut butter on your skin stops it immediately. The larger parasites can't breath
(I assume) and rise into the PB. This is an old-time farm treatment. Rub it on your infected
areas and wash off in the shower 10-15 min later. PICTURE BELOW SHOWS

15) Cinnamon Oil, Peppermint Oil and Tea Tree Oil: Rotate them and use daily
I rub them on lesions or swollen areas of my skin. If it burns you can mix them in coconut
oil. I also dab them on my forehead, chin, neck and around my ears 2x/day. You must
protect your head and ears. I only use the oil on my head unless I have a lesion that
needs attention. You want your head to be the last place the parasites want to infest!!
I also mix cinnamon oil into my shampoo and let sit for 5 min before rinsing.
16) Theratree Body Wash: Shower with it daily and/or clean lesions
This is a minty tea tree body wash that is wonderful. I have let it set on my skin for 5
minutes and watched fibers come out. Sometimes I add it to my shampoo to give the
cinnamon a break. You need to switch products so Morgellons doesn't become immune.
17) Apple Cider Vinegar, Sulfur, Borax, Hydrogen Peroxide, Enzyme Cleaner - Add to bath
I use them individually in the bathtub - especially if you have been somewhere infested.
Figure out which ones work best for your skin type and rotate them.
18) Diatomaceous Earth (Food Grade) - Treat Floors, Pet's Food & MYSELF
This is all-natural and is great for your bones. You can sprinkle this around your home
and on your furniture. It dehydrates bugs that move through it quickly. It has helped my
pets a lot. I have a link on the website with dosage instructions.
19) Bausch & Lomb Moisture Eyes Night Time Eye Gel: Nightly
This is a thick eye gel created for dry eyes. Nothing can live in this thick goo. I rub it
along my eyelashes as well. This should protect your eyes and keep your eyelashes
from falling out. In the beginning, you may have to do 2x/day and rub it on the inside
tip of your nose. This is a hot zone and any bumps in the lining of your nose need to
be treated until they are gone. I have removed 1 that was a coiled parasite that felt
like a pimple.
20) Lice Comb: After Every Shower Comb Your Hair
This manually removes anything in your hair and will immediately cut the parasite
population down. They are attracted to water so always use it after showering. And I
can't say this enough - if your head itches comb it with the lice come. If it itches 2 min
later then comb it again or wash it again. REMEMBER: Constantly removing the larger
parasites breaks the reproduction cycle! It shouldn't take long to get this quieted down.
21) Neosporin and Fungal Lotions & Spray
Use as needed on itchy skin and bumps, lesions and your feet. Use them liberally if
they help you. I rotate them with natural antifungal salves like Oregano and St. John's
Wort. I believe Morgellons infections include both parasites and fungus. Treat Both!
22) Listerine & Hydrogen Peroxide: Mouth Rinse - OFTEN!!
The medicine tasting, original Listerine is the best antiseptic for your mouth other than
Hydrogen Peroxide. They are inexpensive and you must use them often. It doesn't do
any good to treat your eyes, ears and sinuses if you don't treat your mouth. Your mouth
may be loaded with parasites and you don't realize it because they are easily mistaken
as food. Parasites migrate from one end of your body to the other. You have to be
very careful because they will play round-robin between your ears, eyes, mouth and
nose. Treat them all constantly and treat your head more than any part of your body.
This has to be your "Zero Tolerance Zone!
23) Betadine, Alcohol, Curad Germ Shield: As needed on skin
Betadine will bring the black spec parasites to the surface. I practically bathed in it at
the beginning. Alcohol prevents infection and so does Curad - silver ointment.
24) Lint Roller and Defuzzer: As Often As Needed
I use these every time I see fibers or hair on my clothes. I buy in bulk to save money.
These are like the lice comb - the more you remove the faster you get it under control!
You are breaking the cycle of the parasite. I lint roll my sheets before going to bed!
MORGELLONS PEANUT BUTTER TREATMENT
I am sure I am forgetting a few items. There are so many good products that you need to find what works for you. Silve and castor oil are both great products. I have tried both in outbreaks and would consider them again if needed. I have read Castor Oil can be taken after freezing in capsules. Because it doesn't thaw until after it passes the stomach, you avoid cramping. I am interested in this process because it worked well. One of our members sent me pictures showing great success with Fulvic Minerals - this is something I will definitely be looking into. Many products treat the same things so make sure and cross-reference everything. For example, most of the herbs I use are anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial. I believe this is why I have had success. I use a lot of homemade salves with St. John's Wort or Oregano. The oils in these absorb into your system so they reinforce what you are already taking.
The most important thing to remember is that it took you a long time to get sick - there isn't a quick fix. If you have been sick for quite a while, your home and furnishings are infested. You need to treat yourself and your home. I had a severe infestation and was in bed with die-off symptoms for over a week. The 2nd week I was miserable but I could function. Every week after that I felt better and better. Within 6 months I was feeling the best I had in years and most of my lesions were healed. For another 1.5 yrs, I had small pockets under my skin break open and I would be sick for a day or two. The biofilm protects the parasites but so do the pockets and sacs they create. This doesn't happen to me anymore BUT if I don't feel well, I head to the bathroom with peanut butter or Bentonite Clay and start looking for bumps, swelling or redness! You have to be proactive instead of reactive - the difference is your quality of life. If you go somewhere that makes you itch, go home, shower and change your clothes. I will say again: Listen to your body!
I want to leave you with this: I was correct that the cops would come to visit my house. They waited until my son was home with the flu then showed up at my home using truancy as an excuse. I had been in contact with the school so I refused to get my son out of bed. I gave them a copy of the letter from the Doctors office instead. They had no choice but to leave. They were convinced from a "reliable source" that I was making meth in my bathtub. The police were back the next morning with CPS. I was detained on the front porch by a deputy while my neighbors went to work and CPS questioned my kids. I was allowed back in when they searched my home. I have to tell you I have never been so full of self-righteous indignation. The worst thing on my record is a speeding ticket from 20+ years ago. CPS dismissed the visit as an erroneous report but that did very little to calm me down. I don't know if it was 10 years of rage that came boiling over after their visit, but I realized that day that I wasn't dead and I still had a voice. Boy did I use it! I visited the Sheriff, the Principal, School Secretary, Mayor and the employer of the person actively spreading the rumors (She worked at the courthouse.) I am a hometown girl that either went to High School or did Mortgage Loans for everyone I visited. I have never taken advantage of my community relationships before - but I don't feel guilty! It was time for me to confront this problem. My actions were teaching my kids that we weren't worthy to defend. I could no longer hide at my house and let life steamroll over the top of me. God says He will not give us more than we can handle, so lien on Him and step up to the plate. No more hiding and no more shame - we didn't cause Morgellons!
I have received many emails from people across the country hiding at home in isolation. I know some of you are worried about spreading it, but I think if you get it under control you should feel safe to go back into the public. The supplements above will help you run the Morgellons Fibers and parasites out of your body. My last blog told you how to get it out of your laundry. You will probably have way fewer Morgellons coming from you than the general public that's in complete oblivion! I am already working on my next blog that will give you all the evidence that you need for your friends and family. It's taking some time because I am trying to be factual with supporting pictures and videos. I want to end this blog on a positive note for everyone feeling hopeless. I was losing my eyesight, my hearing and my short-term memory. I was so bad that I couldn't even read a book anymore. The herbs and oils above have given me my life back. Today I am writing a blog, creating websites with my son, and am fully involved in all aspects of my life. If God can heal me this much - He can help you too!
