See Morgellons Information Canada Facebook, weekly news and update I don't go by a lot of theories since there are so many out there, I can only speak honestly about what I've learned and I choose to keep it simple and natural. I feel that is more helpful especially for the newly afflicted who are fed so much information on the web already.
I know you are fearful and in more pain then you ever thought possible, you will get through this. You will tap into strength and reserves you never even thought you had. I too wondered as many of you may now if you will even survive this, trust and have faith, you will and it will get better.
I have grown to realize the hard way that you are truly what you eat.
My diet consisted of quick candy bars in between house cleaning jobs (which exposed me to too many chemicals that I am sure helped to compromise my immune system), and lots of prepared foods, any wonder I grew ill. I will be posting a new blog I'm working on soon about gardening and foods that are Morgellons busters.
Over the years I have been contacted by many sufferers who were trying anything and everything and deathly ill and in some cases suicidal. I offer them a ray of hope by simply being testimony that you can overcome and find the road to a decent wellness. Once I convince them to stop being aggressive and using extreme methods to try and rid themselves of this, and they address it from a nutritional viewpoint and the Klinghardt Protocol, they see a lot of improvement. It doesn't happen overnight, it took years of poor diet and/or exposure to an overload of pollutants to debilitate you, it will take time to reverse it.
I have not had black specks or fibers in 7 years now, my lesions are minimal and stomach swelling reduced tremendously. I moved to the forest for wellness and to grow my own food. I hardly speak to the doctor, a once a year physical is about it, I got tired of fighting with them that I was not self-mutilating or having thoughts of suicide or that the only way I would be put in observation is if I said I was suicidal and went to a mental ward, that a regular hospital wouldn't have the time. No way were they going to get me to lie about that!
From day one I told my doc I thought I was sick from exposure to Round Up on the farm, he backed away from me wide eyed, had I come to close to the truth then? More than ten years later I'm convinced that's exactly what happened.
Once I stormed out of a hospital stating loudly "Showtimes over" after an intern observed the fibers coming out of my skin and just shook his head, the nurse came back and told me I could leave, I asked what were they going to do, she just shrugged. I've been escorted out of the hospital another time after the doctor refused to examine me after 4 hours in the waiting room and even the security guards had mercy and said I should try another hospital. I sobbed that I had tried them all, no one will observe what my skin is doing. After a year of frustration doctor hopping and skin specialists and internist who was useless and straining my marriage I suffered in silence. I gave up all meds as they were damaging my organs. My doctor TG finally agreed to medical marijuana.
During this time I had stresses from PTSD on top of it.
God prompted me (as I was to ill on my own strength to do it but supernatural power came into it) to pack up and move 500kms away. There were people and things I had to remove myself from in order to start to work on me and get well and closer to my daughter. It was there I felt I had to go to the forest to rejuvenate. We would take day trips a few times a week. Something about the greenery and scent of the pines restored something inside of me, I started feeling alive. I knew we had to move to the forest for good.
We've been here three years now. We have a river in front to canoe in and hills of forest in the back. We are on a half acre, half of it workable. My determination to have a garden got me out and one shovel at a time I got stronger. The next year I expanded my garden double and double yet again last year. All of it by hand and my strength improving year by year.
I renewed my art interest and was compelled to use the nature around me in my work. The peace sign below is one of my pieces.
Hard to think back over 10 years ago when I was near death and immobile and suffered 24/7.
I am a loner after being shunned by ones who I thought were close but backed away and from feeling like I had leprosy almost and horrified reactions from strangers because I looked a mess. Whether I get back in the loop honestly, right now it doesn't matter. I need this time to focus on priorities and my children and grandchildren and my dear husband who has stuck by me through it all are all I care about right now. The lesions are nearly gone, I have pigmentation discoloration but that is common in post-menopausal women so I'm not self-conscious about that. I don't cover-up like I used to.
God told me "All would be well" when I was at my worst state and even though it got worse at times back then, I trusted that voice and He has helped me through a lot since. He got me here!

I AM NO DOCTOR, ONLY A MORGELLONS SUFFERER FOR TEN YEARS. PERSONALLY, I HAD TO FIND MY OWN RELIEF AS DOCTORS ARE MYSTIFIED BY THIS, TO PUT IT NICELY. LIKE MANY OTHERS, I DID THE DOCTOR ROUTINE, HOPPING FROM ONE TO ANOTHER AND GETTING NOWHERE. I TOOK CONVENTIONAL MEDS THAT FOR ME, NEAR KILLED ME. MY DOCTOR PRESCRIBED MEDICAL MARIJUANA AND IT DOES A GOOD JOB. THAT'S BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR DOCTOR AND I'D RATHER NOT GET INTO THAT MUCH.
WHY I STARTED THIS WEB WAS TO OFFER ADVICE ON OTHER WAYS I'VE FOUND TO MINIMIZE AND HELP MY SYMPTOMS THAT I'M SURE CAN HELP YOU TOO! THERE IS SO MUCH INFORMATION AND 1000's OF DIFFERENT REMEDIES OUT THERE, I FELT SOMEONE NEW TO THIS WOULD BE JUST SPINNING.
THE ONLY ADVICE ABOUT DOCTORS IS, TO ASK RIGHT OFF THE TOP IF THEY'VE HEARD OF MORGELLONS, IF THEY'RE DISMISSIVE, LEAVE! I BATTLED SO HARD THE STRESS WAS CRAZY. I HAD TO BACK OFF FOR THE GOOD OF MY OWN HEALTH. YOU AREN'T DELUSIONAL. OVER 11.000 FAMILIES ARE REGISTERED WITH THE MORGELLONS ORGANIZATION.
THE CDC IS STUDYING THIS ALONG WITH SEVERAL OTHER RESEARCHERS AS WELL AS ERIN BROCKOVICH AND HER FIRM. IT WILL BE CLASSIFIED LEGITIMATE ONE DAY AND THEN THE DOCTORS WILL TREAT US DIFFERENTLY. UNFORTUNATELY, BUT FOR A FEW EXCEPTIONS, THAT'S NOT THE CASE RIGHT NOW. PATIENTS IN CALIFORNIA HAVE HAD SOME SUCCESS WITH DOCTORS.
FOR NOW ALL I CAN SHARE IS MY PERSONAL JOURNEY AND WHAT I FOUND HAS HELP
My Dentist Life Saving Therapy
I VISITED A NEW DENTIST AND HE COULD SEE I WAS IN BAD SHAPE. HE TOOK ONE LOOK AT ALL THE FILLINGS AND SAID THEY HAVE TO COME OUT.
HE REMOVED THEM OVER SEVERAL APPOINTMENTS AND RECOMMENDED HERBAL FOOT PADS AND CHLORELLA AS A NATURAL THERAPY TO REMOVE HEAVY METALS. HE FEELS CONVENTIONAL CHELATION TREATMENT STRIPS OUT TOO MUCH GOOD BACTERIA LEAVING SOME PATIENTS SICKER THAN BEFORE.I TRIED HIS RECOMMENDATIONS AND I NOTICED A CHANGE WITHIN A COUPLE DAYS.
MY IMMUNE SYSTEM HAS IMPROVED SIGNIFICANTLY SINCE.
IT TOOK MONTHS TO COME BACK REALLY GOOD. AFTER SIX MONTHS, I NO LONGER HAD FIBERS OR BLACK BITS. THAT'S BEEN OVER 10 YRS. NOW.
DENTAL AMALGAM ARTICLEhttp://www.holisticmed.com/dental/amalgam/HERBAL
My dentist recommended herbal chelation treatment, that was a life saver. Below is the url to the Klinghardt Protocol, the treatment my dentist used.
My dentist feels that chelation treatment, using enema's, robs the body of good bacteria along with the bad and is harder on the body. The herbal method explained in the Klinghardt pdf is gentler and more natural and more beneficial long term.
At first it will feel strange as you feel the pollutants draining from your brain the first while and your body will feel exhausted at times from the work it is doing. This will pass. A few weeks into it you suddenly feel like your walking lighter and have moments of wellness you haven't had for a while. You'll feel a spark coming to life, it is your immune system taking over and getting stronger.
It is now being used as a treatment for lyme's disease relief also.

YOU'LL NEED TO COPY AND PASTE THE URL http://www.regenesis.ca/cart.php?target=product&product_id=3678&substring=CHLORELLA
SHOULD BE REPEATED EVERY 3 MONTHS OR EVERY 6 AT THE LEAST. EAT AS MUCH CILANTRO IN SOUPS, PESTO AS YOU CAN.
DO NOT EAT CILANTRO ALONE!!! IT BREAKS UP HEAVY METALS BUT CAN BE BAD FOR YOU IF IT HAS NO PLACE TO GO. IT ENDS UP FLOATING AROUND IN YOUR BODY. NOT GOOD! THE DEBRIS NEEDS A WAY OUT, HENCE, THE FOOT PADS.
LAST, BUT NOT AT ALL THE LEAST IS SPICES, HERBS AND LEAFY GREENS (LIKE KALE, SPINACH) LEGUMES, NO SUGAR, NO DAIRY. SEA SALT IN BATHS, ANOTHER IS FRESH GINGER AND LEMON IN THE BATH, VERY HEALING!

Herbs & Spices not only add great flavour to your food, some can even have higher antioxidant activity than fruits, vegetables and some spices, including garlic. Here are tips for growing and caring for your spices, as well as more information on their health benefits.
Culinary herbs are different from spices. Generally, culinary herbs are fresh or dried leaves while spices are seeds, roots, fruits, flowers, and bark. Culinary herbs usually have a mild flavor while spices tend to have a stronger, pungent flavor.
Partial list of Herbs: basil, bay leaf, chervil, dill, fennel, lavender, marjoram, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, savory, tarragon, thyme.
Partial list of Spices: allspice, anise seed, caraway seed, cardamom, cayenne pepper, celery seed, chili powder, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cumin, curry powder, ginger, mace, mustard, nutmeg, paprika, black pepper, poppy seed, saffron, sesame seed, turmeric.
Herbal Use in Recipes:
Use three times the amount of chopped fresh herbs versus dried herbs called for in a recipe. For example, use 1 tablespoon (3 teaspoons) chopped fresh sage instead of 1 teaspoon dried.
If you have grown your own herbs and want to preserve them at the end of the outdoor growing season for use in winter recipes, try freezing them to preserve more fresh taste, as drying them reduces their flavor.
To learn how to plant an herb garden, click here.
Keeping Fresh Herbs Fresh:
To store most fresh herbs that you purchase in the grocery store, keep them fresh by standing the bunch in a glass with 1 inch of cold water. Secure a plastic bag over the top and refrigerate for up to 10 days, changing the water every 2 days.
How to Cut Herbs:
To gather leaves from your outdoor herbs, cut or pinch down to the next grouping of leaves. For grass-like herbs (chives), cut at the base of the herb.
Strong herbs: Winter savory, rosemary and sage.
Herbs strong enough for accent: Sweet basil, dill, mint, sweet marjoram, tarragon and thyme.
Herbs for blending: Chives, parsley and summer savory.
Storage and Flavor of Herbs and Spices
Stored in an airtight container, in a cool, dry place, spices retain their potency longer than you'd think.
4 years for whole spices
2 to 3 years for ground spices
1 to 3 years for leafy herbs, depending on the herb.
Whole peppercorns, nutmegs, and cinnamon sticks hold on to their flavor for ages.
Particularly potent whole spices, such as cloves, cumin, and cardamom will also last for a long, long time.
Ideally, try to purchase spices whole and grind them, as you do not know how long ground spices have been stored in a warehouse or store.
Whole spices will keep the longest, because they have not been cracked or ground, exposing the volatile compounds which make up their flavor to the air. They can last up to four years in an airtight container in a cool, dry place, and will keep even better in the dark
Health Benefits of Herbs and Spices
Researchers say many herbs are only absorbed by the body when they are eaten with fat, so cooking with oil will help release the antioxidants.
Taking herbs and spices as a supplement in pill form will not do much for you because supplements are usually taken with water and your body cannot absorb them that way.
Herbs have higher antioxidant activity than fruits, vegetables and some spices, including garlic. Those with the most antioxidants are, in order, oregano, dill, thyme, rosemary and peppermint.
Some spices have always been known for their help in preserving foods. Recent work has shown that gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria are slowed with the addition of "... garlic, onion, cinnamon, cloves, thyme, sage, and others..." These spices are being found to inhibit the growth of microbes: cinnamon, cloves, mustard, allspice, bay leaf, caraway, coriander, cumin, oregano, rosemary, sage, thyme, and, to a lesser extent, black pepper, red pepper, and ginger.
