Morgellons and the CDC; Final Report is Sent For Publishing

 

CDC HQ in Atlanta, GA.

Oops……

Morgellons disease is NOT a skin disease as you might believe when reading the new posting on the CDC’s website recently (see below).

They forgot that Morgellons sufferers have serious cognitive issues they battle each and every day;

  1. debilitating chronic fatigue,
  2. severe depression and
  3. dulling brain-fog.

Morgellons sufferers, as a result, often fail to keep their jobs, certainly have a great deal of stress in their relationships with their loved-ones who have been told by MD’s and Dermatologists, that Morgellons is delusional.  Here is the new posting, bulletized for easy reading below.

“Given the complexity and number of diverse symptoms reported by people who experience this unexplained skin condition, CDC is undertaking a measured and thorough scientific investigation which offers the best chance for finding useful answers. CDC is conducting this study along with Kaiser Permanente’s Northern California Division of Research. The study was designed and is being led by CDC.”

“The primary goals of the study are:

  1. to learn more about who may be affected with this condition,

  2. the symptoms they are having, and

  3. what factors may contribute to the condition.”

Morgellons sufferers experience severe cognitive dispair and hopelessness.

“The [CDC] study involves:

  1. Determining the clinical and epidemiologic features of this condition

  2. examining skin biopsies from affected patients;

  3. characterizing foreign material such as fibers or threads obtained from persons with the condition; and

  4. estimating rates of illness among the study population.”

When the CDC was asked:  What is the current status of the study?

“We recently completed the data analysis. A final report has been submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.”


We ask rhetorically, is this a Medical peer-reviewed journal OR is it a Psychiatric peer-reviewed journal?

Morgellons; Too Bizarre to Understand?

Morgellons fibers on open lesion

The Morgellons fibers are motile and can be easily observed to move and to reach out for nearby objects with a 10x to 30x scope. They are not bacterial or viral and can withstand blowtorch temperatures of 1400 F.

The symptoms of Morgellons vary widely from easily recognized skin lesions which can appear over wide areas on the body – and sometimes over the entire body – which do not scab normally. Strangely, Morgellons lesions have not been reported to become bacterially-infected. These lesions heal extremely slowly and leave white, pigment-free scars. The mental and neurological effects of the Morgellons syndrome include brain fog, serious personality changes, fear, depression, suicidal thoughts, and physical coordination issues. Morgellons victims also suffer rapid spikes in body heat levels, severe malaise, and chronic fatigue.

Morgellons fibers

It is established that Morgellons fibers are commonly found in all body fluids and orifices. They have been found in bone joints, and are believed to routinely achieve full body systemic penetration…from major organs to the brain. It is very simple to find Morgellons fibers on the skin of victims and their clothing and often throughout their homes…which many believe become permanently infested and pose a clear and present danger to any uninfected people who come into the homes of Morgellons victims.

Communicability appears to be easy and probable via all normal bacterial or viral vectors, including all forms of direct contact, self-inoculation and even breathing in or consuming fibers with food are all believed viable transmission routes. Entire families and extended families are now infected. However, the spreading of Morgellons does not occur in all who come into contact with the afflicted. There may be some form of ‘immunity’ some people possess. Why that is the case remains unknown.

Since the fibers can withstand temperatures in excess of 1400 F, assured sterilization of medical/dental reusable medical equipment and instruments is moot. Some have tried to link Chemtrail aerosol spraying to the spread of Morgellons fibers, although proof of transmission through aerial spraying remains anecdotal and dubious. The current CDC ‘Morgellons study’ being carried out by a Kaiser-Permanente group in Northern California is considered to be a coverup and a farce. You can read more about this here.

Morgellons; The Loneliness, Dispair and Hopelessness

We have been counseling Morgellons disease sufferers for over 4 years now. In that time, we have had thousands of conversation with Morgellons sufferers, most of whom experience some common emotional symptoms that  are just as

Morgellons depression

devastating as the disease itself.

For women, we will call it “cocooning.”  This is a condition whereby the Morgellons sufferer cocoons inside their homes due to feelings of shame and depression at their appearance. They are often covered in unsightly and non-healing lesions.  Sometimes, critters exit their bodies and they feel embarrassed. Some times they become confused due to ‘brain fog’ which is most common among Morgellons sufferers.

It is not in my book so you must be delusional

Then they go to their MD or Dermatologist for help.  If they bring in samples of the ‘debris’ coming from their bodies or show their lesions, they are immediately diagnosed with Delusions of Parasitosis (DOP) which is a subset of schizophrenia. This is a PERMANENT record of mental illness.

Then their families begin to believe the doctors [who are wrong] and begin to withdraw their support and begin to believe that their loved-ones are, in fact, nuts [they are not].

Nobody believes them, their support system shattered and their hope gone, many Morgellons sufferers turn to suicide to eliminate their suffering because they perceive that there is no hope of ever returning to a normal life.

We average about two suicide preventions each and every week.  These preventions come from around the world and seem to have been completely successful.  We succeed in convincing the Morgellons sufferers that there is hope and they can return to their normal lives. You see, thousands of Morgellons sufferers have found their way back to a productive life.

Actual Morgellons lesions

No more biting and scratching.

No more brain fog, depression or chronic fatigue.

No more movements in their scalp.

No more lesions.

All of the above are likely when the Morgellons sufferer uses NutraSilver and FOLLOWS THE INSTRUCTIONS.  We even guarantee that it will work or you get your money back for 60 days.  Not one of the Morgellons sufferers has ever been treated with more compassion and respect. These people are human beings who are suffering; not mental cases that deserve to be locked up in mental institutions and take psychotropic drugs. We spend hours every day on the phone with Morgellons sufferers helping them, guiding them and encouraging them to fight their way back to good health.

If you have Morgellons, you owe it to yourself to find out more about how to eliminate your horrific symptoms and begin to enjoy life once again.

Does Someone You Love Have Morgellons Disease?

Morgellons disease affects families nearly as much as it affects it’s victims. This post is to encourage you too reply and share your thoughts and feelings regarding Morgellons disease.

Confused Doctor; it's not in the book so you must be delusional, which is in the book.

  1. How do you cope with it?
  2. How do you feel when the doctor says that your loved one, who is suffering from Morgellons disease is delusional?
  3. Share with us how much you spend each month searching for something to eliminate the symptoms.
  4. Now, how much have you spent on M.D.’s and Dermatologists seeking help? Does DOP sound familiar to you?
  5. How many of you have given up hope of EVER finding something that can help you?
  6. Tell us about lost jobs due to Morgellons disease.
  7. How about lost marriages or lost families?
  8. And, finally, who amongst you Morgellons sufferers have considered or attempted suicide?

"Well-funded researcher"

We have been, just like you, looking for a cure for this dreaded disease.  In over 4 years of speaking with thousands of Morgellons sufferers around the world, we have not yet found a cure and neither has anyone else.  Currently, there is no real money dedicated to real scientific study, so there really is no real scientific, funded research going on that we can find.

In the mean time, there is a way to eliminate your Morgellons symptoms.  Morgellons sufferers from countries on virtually every continent have finally found the relief they deserve.  No more feelings of bugs crawling or biting you, no more feeling things moving in your hair, no more drowsiness or brain fog, and if you are unfortunate enough to have lesions, no more lesions.

The got relief and so should you

Morgellons Sufferer Tells All

Before the bugs went all over with different types. I had Morgellons or Toxic syndrome for a few years but did not know any better. The house we rent now is where I start getting buffy. I would stand in my tiny bathroom and see little cylinder shaped things come out of the wall. Some broke off like pieces of sand and others were longer and nice cylinder shape. Within a few months the same thing started coming out of my puffy face. The more that pushed through the paint with a high gloss seal for bathrooms. The more that pushed out through my pores on my face. It was so bizarre and I was still clueless at that point.

Now I rarely see anything like that come out of the wall and out of my face, but I do see the tiny white flakes come out of my face and chest and even some tiny black specks. Last night a nice amount compared to other days. Every time the sun comes out I have to fight harder. I believe most of mine is Parisites with some mini visits from mites. Probably rat mites.

Our bathroom wall inside was filled with Walnut halls from years of mice dragging them between the walls. I almost think the worms that eat Walnuts may be part of my problem. I got permission to get rid of the Walnut tree in the yard. It was messy and had tons of bugs and Termites galore throughout the tree. That along with moth balls in the walls help get rid of the mouse infestation. Along with letting Ferrel cats live under the house until the bug explosion hit me and I pushed everything back away from me. Plus the Ferrel cats damaged the electric under the house to the floor furnice.

So I probably had a rat mite that I fight off. Burning Meth Crystal twice daily is helping. Beats spraying twice daily all walls, windows and furniture which only helps molds and fungus to grow. I had at least 3 or 4 types of bugs. My first year I took out 2 worms from inside my arm. Whare they draw blood. The first worm was very short and damaged and though maybe I was wrong about it being a worm. The fallowing week I was rubbing an irritated spot in the other arm and out came a perfect worm with no damage and twice the size of the first one. 1/4 in long. Creamy white with little nodular for legs similar to an inch worm.

Actual Morgellons Lesions

Also that year I saw a cute little black bug that almost fit down in my pore. I watched through a hand held glass as he would pop out walk around arm hairs only to end back up in the same pore. The bug had short legs and two long legs that felt wispy. I call that my wispy crawler which I had not had now sense last summer. He had the face of a little man. So cute the face was. Took me two months to find a front view of a Chigger which had the same face. All the top views of Chiggers did not look like the little fella living on my arm. I am in CA. so we are not suppose to have Chiggers, but I think we attract so many bugs that I say all bugs can live anywhere but some have more trouble staying alive because of weather killing them off and soil alkaline or acidity, so fewer and farther between yet they found me. Unless there is a kin to Chiggers living in CA.

10 months or less ago I caught a bug crawling on the privates. I threw it in the bathroom sink. I damaged it and it had a flipper. It was trying to flip itself mimicking a flea. That one if any good any more is at the college waiting for identification. If was real pretty. Translucent under the scope. Creamy abdomen. Long slender wings with blue and red dots. Big black round eyes and I believe six legs. I think the worms I pulled out over a year ago is the same bug. Sorry about making bugs sound pretty.

I just gotta ask this again… are they actually saying (without knowing it) that these transgenic insects and plants aren’t gonna effect humans? Give me a break!! Insects always bite and the wind blows seeds everywhere. Are these guys totally insane? Or do these people have a way to make their biowarfare mutated insects and seeds only target the enemy? I just don’t understand… and it seems “they” don’t either!

I’ve had several major surgeries in my lifetime. Two ectopic pregnancies… one where I flat lined 3 times on the table. I also had meningitis when I was a child and wasn’t supposed to live thru that one either, but I did. I think God must not be ready for me yet… probably knows I’ll follow Him around bugging Him with all my curiosities, and being I’m sure He’s very busy, He just doesn’t want me there yet! But back to my other surgeries, I had my spinal surgery in ’96 and shoulder surgery around ’98 I think. I didn’t get morgs til 2003… but Dr. Hildy once said I could’ve been implanted with my “chip” during either one of those surgeries. Did you know a surgeon can actually do that kind of thing without the patient’s permission or them even knowing about it?

As for the bugs you guys… I’ve only seen collembola and flying ants in my morg journey. But like you Lynn, that was all in the first few years and now I never see them anymore… which is a very good thing! Although I love animals of any kind, including bugs… I sure don’t like them in me!

Notice the "critter" exiting the finger

I’m so sorry everything seems so out of control for you right now shear delight. I myself really like wormwood, but I pretty much stay away from taking anything anymore. I just go thru the cycles knowing they’re gonna end sooner or later and try to stay as positive as I possibly can. I use peppermint oil on my skin and hair alot tho… it helps with the crawling and electrical sensations more than anything else I’ve ever tried. You mentioned the salt and C… it’s used mostly for Lyme patients but has helped many a morgie too. As for using or not using a zapper, read my new thread about the dangers of experimenting by Dr. Hildy. You may find it interesting and informative too (she discusses zappers along with everything else).

MRSA News; New Approach Offers Promise

Scientists have discovered a new way to attack dangerous pathogens, marking a hopeful next step in the ever-escalating battle between man and microbe.

Actual MRSA cells

MRSA infections are among the most virulent infections known. The superbug causes nearly 500,000 hospitalizations and 19,000 deaths in the United States each year – more deaths than caused by AIDS. The bug can be acquired in the community or in hospitals.

In a paper published online Feb. 10 in the journal PLoS Pathogens, scientists demonstrate that by stopping bacteria’s ability to degrade RNA – a “housekeeping” process crucial to their ability to thrive – scientists were able to stop methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA both in the laboratory and in infected mice.

The team, headed by a microbiologist at the University of Rochester Medical Center, is now developing closely related compounds designed to be much more potent than the one discussed in the paper.

The new approach shows promise against the most severe strains of MRSA as well as the toughest type of MRSA infection for antibiotics to infiltrate – bacteria enmeshed in biofilms.

“This offers a whole new way to go on the offensive against some of the world’s most dangerous bugs,” said the leader of the group, Paul Dunman, Ph.D., associate professor of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Rochester Medical Center and formerly of the University of Nebraska. “We’re hoping our research opens the door to an entirely new class of antibiotics.”

The team also includes scientists from the University of Nebraska, the University of Arkansas, Vanderbilt University, and the University of North Texas Health Science Center.

MRSA and other dangerous microbes are so deadly largely because of their ability to adapt quickly to changing conditions. Bacteria’s knack for adaptation hinges on their ability to constantly churn out new molecules of RNA, which carry crucial messages that tell a cell what proteins to make and in what quantities.

The new research focuses on a critical cellular step that is part of the process, known as RNA degradation. Once an RNA molecule is no longer needed, the molecule is sliced and diced up, and its components are returned to the pool of available raw material that the cell taps again and again to construct other RNA molecules as needed.

“In bacteria, RNA degradation is crucial. The cells are replicating very quickly and responding to environmental changes very rapidly. In less than three minutes, a new RNA transcript is made, the protein is made, and then the RNA is degraded, and that material is made available to make other RNA molecules,” Dunman said.

Suppose you could stop MRSA by switching off its ability to breath?  Might that work?  You can learn much more by clicking here.

Nano-silver; the EPA Has Safely Regulated Nano-silver for Decades


There seems to be a great deal of MIS-information regarding nano-sized colloidal silver.  Here the EPA Advisory Council discuss some real, verifiable and historic information as to the safety and efficacy of true colloidal silver products.
(Nanowerk News) The Silver Nanotechnology Working Group (SNWG), an industry effort intended to foster the collection of data on silver and nanotechnology in order to advance the science and public understanding of the beneficial uses of silver nanoparticles in a wide-range of consumer and industrial products, made a detailed presentation to the recent EPA Scientific Advisory Panel (SAP) meeting to discuss the topic “Evaluation of Hazard and Exposure Associated with Nanosilver and Other Nanometal Oxide Pesticide Products (Arlington VA, November 3-6, 2009). Key conclusions from the presented analysis include:

Nanosilver: Over 100 years old

Nanosilver is not a new material. The assumption of nanosilver being a new material with fears of new properties and new unknown hazards is at the heart of both regulatory and many popular perceptions about nanosilver. However, contrary to assumptions of newness, nanosilver materials are old and have been well known throughout the ages. Indeed, nanosilver has been rationally manufactured and used commercially for over a century.
Many different terminologies have been used throughout scientific history to describe ultra-small silver particles including “colloidal silver”, “millimicron silver” and among other terms the current “nanosilver” terminology. Accordingly, while the term “nanosilver” is new, the technology it represents is not.
The SNWG provided the SAP meeting with a detailed historical and technical analysis that demonstrated that these materials have a long established commercial history as engineered particles of nanoscale size.¹ Despite changes in terminology, the underlying material being described is in fact the same that has been used for decades. i.e. nanoscale silver.

EPA has a long history of safely regulating nanosilver

The EPA has been safely and successfully regulating nanosilver products for decades. These products have been used in a wide range of consumer applications such as swimming pool treatments and drinking water filters with an established record under FIFRA of regulated and safe use dating as far back as the 1950’s.

A detailed look at the depth of history of silver within the EPA shows that the toxicological studies that form the basis of the EPA’s general hazard limits for silver derive from historical data from nanoscale silver materials and not ‘conventional (bulk) silver’ as is often mistakenly assumed.
A careful examination of the EPA public registration database (NPIRS Public) for silver over a period of 6 decades reveals:
·  The very first registered silver product was a colloidal nanosilver algaecide product that has been safely used by millions of consumers for over 50 years (registered since 1954). 

  • ·  Every EPA silver registration between 1970 and 1990 was either a colloidal nanosilver or nanosilver-composite product.
  • ·  The very first NON-nanosilver product registered by EPA was not registered until 1994.
  • ·  An overall analysis reveals that today over 50% of all EPA registered silver products are in fact based on nanoscale silver.

Regulatory Relevance

Doctor discussing the many benefits of Colloidal Silver Use

EPA has a range of existing regulatory structures that have successfully addressed silver materials across the size spectrum for over 5 decades. Throughout this period, the EPA has not recorded any incidents of significance on the Agency’s formal incident reporting database (EPA OPP IDS) – indicating that thorough monitoring of real-life use supports the safety of these products.

The EPA should be congratulated for this record of successful monitoring and risk management for these materials despite different terminologies being used throughout this period of time.
Indeed, given that with nanosilver there is perhaps more historical data and evidence of safe use than for many other regulated materials, EPA has the opportunity to assess nanosilver products with confidence given this long history of safe use under existing EPA regulations.
The following themes are vital for consideration of an informed regulatory approach:
Nanosilver is NOT a new material – EPA needs to look beyond general conceptions of nano terminology and consider the broader established regulatory record of nanoscale silver products within the Agency.
Nanosilvers have seen decades of safe use in real-life – Given the long history of safe use for EPA-registered nanoscale silver products (stretching back as far as 1954) calls for treatment of nanosilver as a new material requiring development of expensive new test regimes and discriminatory regulatory consideration are difficult to justify.

MRSA “Super-bug” Found on Public Beaches

Public beaches may provide a home for and mechanism for the spread of the superbug methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Washington and presented to

Is MRSA on your beach?

the Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy.

“Our results suggest that public beaches may be a reservoir for possible transmission of MRSA,” lead researcher Marilyn Roberts said.

MRSA is a drug-resistant form to the common Staph infection that can lead to severe and even lethal side effects if left untreated. Once a problem largely confined to hospitals, MRSA has spread beyond healthcare settings in recent years. This new prevalence, combined with its evolved ability to infect healthier people, has led to a situation where MRSA now kills more people in the United States each year than AIDS.

Researchers tested 10 public beaches on the Puget Sound and identified 13 different varieties of Staph bacteria spread over nine of them. Seven of these varieties were multidrug resistant. Five of the MRSA samples appeared most similar to hospital varieties, suggesting that some form of contamination was responsible for their presence.

Staph A. bacteria

People may be infected with Staph bacteria without developing symptoms. These carriers can in turn infect others. Carriers may have been responsible for the two MRSA varieties that did not appear to come from hospitals, but the researchers could not be sure.

Roberts said that the MRSA probably entered the beaches due to environmental contamination.

“Where all of these organisms are coming from and how they’re getting seeded (on the beaches) is not clear,” she said. Two beaches tested in southern California were not contaminated.

Nevertheless, the method of sampling that Roberts and colleagues used is not likely to capture every different Staph variety at a given beach.

“The fact that we found these organisms suggests that the amount is much higher than we previously thought,” she said.
