Are CAM Treatments Effective?

As someone who wasted tens of thousands of dollars on ineffective CAM treatments over the years, I admire the work that you and your colleagues do here to educate people about the importance of science-based medicine. This blog has been very helpful for me as I continue to disentangle myself from the web of CAM beliefs that held me captive for two decades.

With regards to the topic of fake diseases, however, I feel compelled to point out that part of the reason I was so susceptible to diagnosis of fake diseases is because I had real symptoms that conventional medicine ignored because my tests were all “normal.”

There are few things more frustrating as a patient than being told there is nothing wrong with you when you can barely function. While CAM practitioners ultimately failed to help me, they never denied that my condition was real. Ultimately, it was a CAM practitioner who referred me to an MD open-minded enough to acknowledge that, while technically in range, my labs were low enough to indicate borderline dysfunction that might benefit from treatment.

My story is ultimately a happy one in that this treatment has literally turned my life around. Yet doctors like mine are apparently rare; every day I read anguished stories in web forums from patients in similar condition who can’t get their doctors to acknowledge that so-called normal lab ranges do not tell the whole story.

You wrote that “establishing that a set of signs and symptoms is a specific syndrome or disease is an extremely important function of scientific medicine.” This seems reasonable, yet in my case, those criteria were far too rigid. Doctors who strictly followed those criteria and ignored my symptoms fed my belief that conventional medicine was useless and sent me straight into the waiting arms of sympathetic CAM practitioners.

I would love to see more scientific research done on my condition that looks at why there is such a disconnect between “normal labs” and patient function. Unfortunately, since the drugs used to treat my condition are all cheap and off-patent, I don’t expect this will happen anytime soon. In the meantime, patients are using the Internet to share experience and information they can’t get from MD’s. Knowing what I do about the questionable value of anecdotes, I rely on these boards with some hesitation. But there is nothing like having a specialist ignore everything you say, imply it’s all in your head and suggest anti-depressants to make a person feel like they have few options.

I really wish that my own medical condition was cut and dried enough that I could rely entirely on the principles of science-based medicine for its treatment. Unfortunately, that level of science does not exist for me and millions of other patients with genuine symptoms that fall through the cracks of conventional diagnosis.

Morgellons Disease; Where is the Research? Where is the CDC?

Where is the Morgellons research?

Dr. Randy Wymore

Randy Wymore, Ph.D., a medical school professor at Oklahoma State University at Tulsa who has become an unexpected champion of the Morgellons community. He was doing an Internet search on muscle fibers in the spring semester of 2005 when he stumbled onto a Web site discussing a fiber disease. Intrigued, he read for a moment, thought it seemed crazy, closed the link and went back to his other work. But the topic nagged at him, and a few days later he called up the search again.

Wymore says he assumed the people posting were unhinged and spinning wild obsessions out of dryer lint and pet hair. To satisfy his own curiosity, he e-mailed a few of those who had posted, inviting them to send him some fibers for analysis. “I was quite expecting people to say things like, ‘Well, if we try and ship them to you, they’ll disappear,’ or, ‘You can’t see them unless you have the disease, too,’” he recalls. “But 24 hours later, FedEx packages started arriving.”

Dr. Wymore searching for fibers

He fished the samples — too small to study without a microscope — out of the packages and popped them onto a slide. “I didn’t know what to make of them,” Wymore says. Before he analyzed them, he collected fiber samples from his own life: sweater snags, threads from his jeans, dust bunnies. The samples from the patients did not look like these: tightly tangled, vividly red, blue, brownish, as well as some that were clear and smooth. He began collecting fibers everywhere he went — from his house, the medical school’s carpet, the hotel rooms his family stayed in on summer vacation, the pets at his daughter’s elementary school. Nothing he gathered looked like the Morgellons samples — but the samples, which by now had come from Texas, Washington, California, Pennsylvania and Florida, all looked similar to each other.

Morgellons fibers growing inside human flesh

He and a colleague, pediatrician Rhonda Casey, M.D., then persuaded about 30 adults and children who claimed to have Morgellons to come in for interviews and physicals. They looked ill, sometimes thin and lacking in energy, and some had slurred speech. And Dr. Casey found something odd: tangled skeins of dark fibers, not stuck to the surface of rashes or popping out of pores, but buried in intact skin. Wymore asked two forensic experts at the Tulsa Police Department who had access to national fiber-identification databases to have a look at the fiber samples. They were stumped, he says. The fibers had no cuts or extrusion marks that would establish them as man-made and no internal structures such as cell walls that would make the case for natural origin. The fibers did not lose their color in any solvents or detergents. At 1,600 degrees Fahrenheit, they did not burn.

“So if you’d like a hypothesis as to what might be causing Morgellons, I can’t give you one,” Wymore says. “But there is no question that Morgellons is some sort of physical pathology. It is not a psychiatric disorder. And until someone else starts researching this in a fairly significant way, I can’t just go back to my other work and say, ‘Well, good luck, all you Morgellons people. Hope they figure this out.’”

This is a true mystery

 “It’s unnerving to know more about your condition than your doctor,” White says. Being doubted has become a strange status quo, weirdly familiar without ever being welcome. “I don’t hold any hope in the CDC or any doctors, really,” says Aitken, who adds she is feeling better because she reduced the stress in her life and began using a non-mainstream medical treatment involving infrared heat. “Nobody really knows what is going on.”

As for White, she had been feeling better with fewer visible fibers on her skin. But she says the sense of hair “growing down” into her scalp is more pronounced than it was before. She started working this past summer, but her confident college-girl assumption that life will go well has been irrevocably shattered, and that seems as big a loss as her health. “If I got hit by a truck tomorrow, I don’t think I would be too upset about it — not because I’m suicidal, but more that I don’t know if I want to live this way for however many years I’m going to live,” she says. “Normal is not anything I ever aspired to be, but I don’t feel like I’m ever going to feel normal again.”

collumbola springtails are often blamed for Morgellons

So far, Morgellons has two strikes against its being recognized as a distinct disease: Hundreds of conditions share many of its symptoms, and no one can imagine what would make specks and fibers emerge from intact skin. What little has been written about it in the medical literature essentially says that Morgellons is delusional parasitosis, in which disruptions in brain chemistry cause the unshakable belief that organisms are digging into and sprouting from the skin. The itching and crawling sensations, the papers say, are the effect of neurons misfiring. The rashes are the result of patients obsessively scratching. And the fibers are environmental contaminants — pet hair, clothing fluff, fragments of dead insects—that collect on their sticky, self-inflicted wounds. In other words, it’s all in the patient’s head. Nevertheless, the authors say, doctors shouldn’t scold or correct patients who claim to have contracted Morgellons. Instead, they should establish rapport, so as to get the sufferers on the right psychiatric drugs. [they do not work]

Patients, naturally, feel patronized.

Typical Morgellons lesions

With medical opinion so uniformly against them, they made their own Morgellons community on the Internet. There are two major organizations, the Morgellons Research Foundation and the Charles E. Holman Foundation, as well as 720 videos on YouTube and 20 groups on Yahoo! where people compare symptoms and discuss such topics as trying veterinary drugs as remedies. The online presence brings sufferers individual comfort and group power: The MRF claimed the CDC began investigating the syndrome in part because it was prompted by “more than 40 members of Congress” responding to its members’ letters.

People who are afflicted by such lesions, fibers and bouts of cognitive haze say they hope their status in the eyes of the medical community is about to change. After two years of deliberation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta — the federal agency that fields an elite corps of disease detectives — is looking into their complaints. [two years later, they are still no published results] The investigation, which will not report its findings until next year, could explain their weird symptoms or reject them as the inventions of sick minds. White and Aitken say they are absolutely sure they are not crazy. “I’d rather have cancer,” White says. “I know how that sounds. But at least then you get sympathy. And a treatment plan.”

It is no long necessary to suffer from Morgellons symptoms

Thousands of Morgellons sufferers have found lasting relief from using a new form of colloidal silver to knock back Morgellons symptoms quickly, usually withing a few short weeks. It is a natural mineral with zero toxicity and is perfectly safe for babies up through adults.

Morgellons and the CDC; Engaged Too Long? Where Are the results?

CDC is investigating Morgellons

New diseases emerge more frequently than most people realize. There has been roughly one per year since the 1970s. Some have a huge impact, such as AIDS; it has killed millions, but it surfaced as a strange pneumonia in five gay men in 1981. Others arrive with barely a ripple, such as the Dandenong virus, which killed three Australian women last year after they all received organs from an unknowingly infected donor.

CDC researcher

But deciding whether a new disease exists is a long, contentious process of doing interviews, performing physical exams, conducting lab experiments, crunching data with computers, trawling textbooks for past cases and searching for a reasonable explanation if one isn’t immediately obvious. At the end of the process, disease detectives ideally want to end up with an agent — a bacterium, a virus, a genetic trigger or a toxin — that causes the symptoms they are seeing, a set of symptoms that only one thing can cause. An official designation as a disease means that sufferers are taken seriously; tests are devised to help make a diagnosis, treatments can be researched and insurance usually ends up paying for care.

Morgellons; we really don't know anything yet

The more cryptic the cause or symptoms are, the longer the process takes and the harder it is for the medical establishment to recognize a new disease. West Nile virus was a well-known, generally mild illness in Europe, Africa and the Middle East — but when the virus crossed the Atlantic in 1999 and caused brain inflammation in 59 New Yorkers, killing seven of them, doctors didn’t immediately recognize it because the symptoms were so different. Women complained of chronic pain, stiffness and fatigue for decades before organized medicine recognized the syndrome as fibromyalgia. For years afterward, rank-and-file doctors refused to diagnose it, in part because medical research has not uncovered a definite cause. “A lot of new diseases came up in the 20th century that people scoffed at,” says Howard Markel, M.D., professor and director of the Center for the History of Medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor.

So far, Morgellons has two strikes against its being recognized as a distinct disease

Long Morgellons fibers

Hundreds of conditions share many of its symptoms, and no one can imagine what would make specks and fibers emerge from intact skin. What little has been written about it in the medical literature essentially says that Morgellons is delusional parasitosis, in which disruptions in brain chemistry cause the unshakable belief that organisms are digging into and sprouting from the skin. The itching and crawling sensations, the papers say, are the effect of neurons misfiring.

The rashes are the result of patients obsessively scratching.

And the fibers are environmental contaminants — pet hair, clothing fluff, fragments of dead insects—that collect on their sticky, self-inflicted wounds. In other words, it’s all in the patient’s head. Nevertheless, the authors say, doctors shouldn’t scold or correct patients who claim to have contracted Morgellons. Instead, they should establish rapport, so as to get the sufferers on the right psychiatric drugs.

Patients, naturally, feel patronized. With medical opinion so uniformly against them, they made their own Morgellons community on the Internet. There are two major organizations, the Morgellons Research Foundation and the Charles E. Holman Foundation, as well as 720 videos on YouTube and 20 groups on Yahoo! where people compare symptoms and discuss such topics as trying veterinary drugs as remedies. The online presence brings sufferers individual comfort and group power: The MRF claimed the CDC began investigating the syndrome in part because it was prompted by “more than 40 members of Congress” responding to its members’ letters.

Ironically, though, the virtual Morgellons community might be undermining the validation its sufferers are seeking. Medical history abounds with accounts of people getting sick because they heard or saw it happening to someone else, a phenomenon that used to be called hysteria and now goes by the more polite psychogenic illness. It has caused outbreaks of itching, fainting and difficulty breathing, along with mass panic attacks such as several in Africa and Asia in which hundreds of men came to believe that their penis was shrinking back into their body. Timothy F. Jones, M.D., an epidemiologist with the Tennessee Department of Health, investigated a 1998 episode in which 170 high school students and staff went to emergency rooms after smelling “toxic fumes” that were never proven to exist. He says psychogenic outbreaks spread rapidly, usually among people within sight of one another, and dissipate quickly when the affected people are separated.

That is not exactly what has happened with Morgellons.

Its community accumulated over several years, and most of its members have never met. Still, cybersharing may have profound suggestive power. Chat groups and social-networking sites have been accused of fostering anorexia and suicide clusters. Morgellons accounts may have influenced psychologically vulnerable people to adopt the syndrome as their own — including people who are authentically sick but mistaken about the cause, Dr. Jones says.

Sufferers are sharing information about Morgellons on the Internet

That sufferers are sharing information about Morgellons on the Internet could also foil the search for an explanation. Epidemiologists consider unrelated people telling the same story to different doctors to be a reliable early warning signal of a new illness, but publicity is the medical equivalent of polluting the jury pool. That means when disease detectives question patients, their responses might be influenced by what they’ve heard, making some studies impossible to do. “Say you have an outbreak of food-borne illness,” Dr. Jones says. “If you ask people to tell you their symptoms, they might say, ‘Nausea and vomiting.’ But if you read them a list of symptoms, they will say, ‘Oh, I had that, too.’ It’s not a conscious thing; it’s the power of suggestion.”

But even if patients have altered their stories in the retelling, there are so many tales that investigators are nonetheless likely to listen. “If it’s just one person saying, ‘I got this rash’ or ‘I got these fiber lesions,’ that’s one thing,” says Dr. Markel, the medical historian. “If there are thousands of them, that’s another thing. That is very compelling and at least merits a hearing.”

Is it a new disease?

The job of figuring out if Morgellons is, in fact, a distinct disease falls to Michele Pearson, M.D., the physician and epidemiologist directing the CDC study. Dr. Pearson trained in the raucous, violent emergency rooms of downtown Chicago before heading to the CDC. She says it is time for the CDC to tackle whatever the illness may be. “A number of people were calling in, not only those affected but providers, saying, ‘I’m seeing these patients; what should I do?’ and public-health professionals saying, ‘We’re getting reports to our health departments,’” she says, estimating that the CDC gets about 100 calls and e-mail messages about Morgellons each month. Dr. Pearson has spoken to a number of the Morgellons callers and met several and was moved by their plight. She says she is unwilling to prejudice her investigation by speculating on whether Morgellons is a medical problem, a psychiatric disorder or a media creation. Whatever the cause turns out to be, “the suffering these patients are experiencing is real,” she says.

Perhaps her most delicate task is to respect Morgellons patients’ pain and frustration without betraying the scientific rigor for which the CDC is internationally known. So the agency is moving cautiously. Its preliminary objectives are to understand Morgellons symptoms (the first step in sorting out how common the illness is), who is most vulnerable and what the cause might be. The study is a joint project with the northern California research division of the giant HMO Kaiser Permanente. California seems to be a Morgellons hot spot, and Kaiser uses electronic medical records — which allows investigators to search among 3.5 million patients for complaints of fibers and either skin lesions and/or itching or crawling sensations.

In May and June, 2008 investigators began inviting possible sufferers to Kaiser’s Oakland offices. Volunteers, who have taken a detailed survey about symptoms, travel history and their pets, among other things, submit to a physical exam and a neurological and psychological evaluation. This looks for evidence of the brain fog patients complain of and also pinpoints any problems such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and depression that might complicate the analysis. Finally, volunteers give blood and skin samples for a wide range of lab tests. All the data generated, hundreds of pieces of information per volunteer, will be poured into computer programs that look for patterns and anomalies. “At this point, it’s really basic information that we don’t know: Is it primarily men or women? Is it primarily the old or the young? Is it primarily people from certain racial or ethnic groups or socioeconomic backgrounds?” Dr. Pearson says. “This [research] will put a face on it.”

Morgellons Isolation Destroys Families

It all started with the fibers

Long Morgellons fibers

I first noticed them about 3 years ago. First, there were small ones; blue, black and sometimes white. I had no idea what they were, but they were of great concern to me. Then I began to notice black specks on my pillow and bed sheets when I awoke in the morning. What were these mysterious objects growing out of my body? One day, I even say a ‘critter’ come out of the corner of my left eye.

Then the lesions came

Non-healing Morgellons lesions

First one small one, then many others. The lesions started on my chest, then moved up my neck and now the lesions are on my face. I was hideous-looking so I decided not to go out in public anymore until these horrible lesions were gone. I began to keep to myself while my husband and two children (ages 7 and 10) wondered ‘where did Mommy go?’

Next, the feeling of “biting and scratching” began to cover my entire body.

This drove me crazy since it never stopped. Imagine how you might feel with animals of some sort crawling all over your body and not knowing what they are.

I was beginning to feel frightened by all of this, so I went to our family doctor. Once in his office, he began to examine me. It felt like he was in a hurry and not very interested. He suggested that these manifestations were just the result of too much stress in my life and further referred me to a Dermatologist. I was beginning to feel disconnected from all of this. I felt alone and not my cheery self and I had no idea why.

I was feeling more depressed. I felt ‘isolated’ from the things in my life that are important to me. Who was I becoming I wondered?

Finally, the day arrived when I and my husband was to meet with the Dermatologist. I thought I would help him so I had been collecting ‘things’ that were coming out of my body to show him. He took one look at my ‘collection’ and without even examining me, he said that I was suffering from what is called Delusions of Parasitosis (DOP). He went on to say that I needed psycho-tropic drugs, wrote me a prescription and sent me on my way.

I left feeling the lowest I have ever felt. My husband, having heard the Doctor’s diagnosis, began to doubt me and withdraw his support. My kids were thinking that Mom had finally ‘lost it’. Depressed and without hope, I began to think about suicide. I really did not want to kill myself; what I really wanted was my original life back with the love and support of my family and the return of my good health that I had enjoyed before this infection (and taken for granted).

Lost family support

My family and friends began to withdraw as well and I found myself feeling completely hopeless and isolated. My memory was not like it used to be, I could no longer think clearly. I began to cry. I cried for hours at a time, not knowing what was happening to me. No one knew what to do with me. Each and every day began to be a nightmare of pain, confusion and misery. Morgellons had stolen my life and I wanted it back; I just had no idea how to do that.

Morgellons is NOT contagious

My husband thinks that Morgellons is contagious so he has not touched me in any way for more than two years now. We don’t kiss or hug or make love anymore. I feel like I can not hug my kids since no one seems to know if Morgellons is contagious or not. I am concluding that my life is over.

I began to search on the Internet and found far too much scary stuff about Morgellons. The microscopic pictures frightened me the most since I have no real scientific background and did not understand what I was looking at.

The Moderators of these forums seem to be just as crazy as the Doctors.

Morgellons sufferers are looking for ways to either reduce their misery of find a cure. Yet when anyone mentions a product of any kind, the Moderators of these so-called forums immediately ‘ban’ the poster from their boards thinking that they are in some way

protecting their members. This kind of censorship further discourages me so I stopped watching the boards altogether.

I just wanted to die. Had it not been for my children, I probably would have.

Like most Morgellons sufferers, I began to try many different products. Most did absolutely nothing for me except drain my pocketbook. All of these products were topical. I suspected that since I felt Morgellons deep inside my body, topical products would, at best, only relieve some of the symptoms. I instinctively knew that I had to drive out this infection from the inside of my body.

The crying continued for days on end.

What was I to do? Hanging by a thread, I discovered a product called NutraSilver. It is a natural mineral that is taken orally. I had done my homework, read the scientific information and was impressed that this company had hired FDA-certified independent labs to conduct in-vitro testing on the worst pathogens known. The results were astonishing; ‘kill rates’ were decisively impressive, even when the worst known flesh-eating pathogen, MRSA was tested.

So I bought some NutraSilver and gave it a try. When I ordered, I spoke with their Customer Service department and was told in the strongest terms that if I followed the instructions exactly, I would heal or they would give my money back to me. This seemed reasonable, so I decided to follow the instructions just as written.

And heal I did! Hurray!

In less than two weeks my mental issues were completely gone; no more ‘brain fog,’ or fatigue and my depression were going away too. It was then that I realized that Morgellons had caused these symptoms and that the NutraSilver was eliminating them. At the same time, my lesions began to dry up. Within a week or so they began to shrink and with three weeks they fell off and were completely gone!

In a few weeks, the Morgellons lesions were gone!

I can not begin to tell you how I felt then.

Now, my tears were of joy. I was ‘myself’ again. My family began to notice the change in me and started to warm up to me again. They were just as happy to have me back as I was to be a familyagain. I began to forget about Morgellons. I take a small maintenance dose every day and have been symptom-free for about four months now.

Morgellons: A CDC Failure to Protect Americans

CDC Morgellons Study is 2 Years Late

After more than a year of pressure from patients convinced they have Morgellons, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has begun investigating the ailment for the first time and determine, once and for all, whether it exists.

“Not a day passes when I don’t talk to somebody who claims to have this,” said CDC spokesman Dan Rutz. “In the absence of any objective review, people have jumped to conclusions and found each other on the Internet and formed their own belief structure. We really need to debunk this if there isn’t anything to it or identify if there is indeed a new, unrecognized disease that needs attention.”

No one knows how long Morgellons has been around, but about four years ago a South Carolina mom who says her three children have the disease was researching their symptoms and found reference to a 1674 medical study that described a similar condition, called Morgellons.

The disease sounds like a nightmare. In fact, one Web site claims Morgellons was “invented” recently to help promote a summer horror movie. A search on the Internet reveals dozens of people who have posted magnified photos of their symptoms — usually twisted, thread-like protrusions from the skin and sometimes hazy images that look like small bugs.

Morgellons; the Silent Pandemic

A mysterious skin disease is spreading across America

typical Morgellons lesion

The ailment, called Morgellons Disease, is a parasite-like infection that literally makes the infected person’s skin crawl.  The disease has already been found in thousands of patients in Florida , Texas and California.

“I would lay in the bed and it felt like an army of ants just crawling over the bed, all over my body,” says one Morgellons Disease sufferer.

“It never goes away,” says another. “It doesn’t die, it doesn’t leave.”

Humans Are Losing the Battle Over MRSA

MRSA is the number one health-care issue today

Hospitals just can’t seem to win the war on spreading resistant bacteria in Intensive Care Units. Although some battles in the fight come out in favor of the docs, as shown in a recent initiative by our Nation’s 153 VA hospitals which managed to slash the occurrence rate of MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infections by 62 percent in ICU’s, the number of hospital-derived bacterial infections is still alarmingly high. Thousands of victims are laid to rest each year as a result of MRSA and vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE) alone.

How serious is the situation?

It is serious enough that the World Health Organization has ranked antimicrobial drug resistance among the greatest threats to human health on the planet. A new multi-site study conducted by the Mayo Clinic found that typical defense strategies used by hospitals are simply not effective. For the study, researchers examined and collected data from 18 ICUs at academic medical centers around the U.S. Each ICU was randomly assigned to provide care using the intervention strategies (active surveillance and barrier precaution) or its existing (control) procedures.

There is a Huge Risk When Seeing a Doctor for Morgellons Disease

Morgellons Today

Why won't the doctors help me?

Is this a re-run of what people experienced 30 or so years ago when they presented themselves to the Medical Profession with symptoms of AIDS/HIV? Absolutely!

Having worked directly with thousands of Morgellons sufferers, they ALL TELL THE SAME STORY when visiting their doctor; They are quickly diagnosed with Delusions of Parasitosis (DOP) and offered psychotropic drugs for their delusions.  Guess what?

You are now labeled a nut-case on your medical record for the rest of your life.
