Morgellons Mystery Unravels as Scientists Zero In on the Causes

For about two years now, Food Nation Radio Network has been covering the issues that affect our food supply. During the course of our research, investigations and interviews for the show, we came across a particularly disturbing piece of information in the genetically modified food puzzle. It’s the possible relationship between agrobacterium, genetic engineering and Morgellons Disease.

Agrobacterium is a bacteria that causes tumors in plants through a transfer of DNA. It is used for genetic engineering of corn, soybeans, canola, sugar beets, alfalfa and other foodstuffs. Some studies have shown agrobacterium can also affect the DNA of humans.

Stoney Brook Weighes In

A study done on Morgellons Disease patients by Vitaly Citovsky, a professor of molecular and cell biology at Stony Brook University in New York (SUNY) found all patients tested positive for the presence of agrobacterium, while the healthy control patients did not. Morgellons is a disease one would think would be in a science fiction novel. It is characterized by lesions on patients and fibers containing minerals growing underneath the skin. For many years, nearly the entire medical community (including the CDC) maintained it was a psychiatric condition, with patients causing their own lesions and other symptoms. As of January, 2012 the CDC appears to maintain that stance, although researchers and respected scientists in Oklahoma, New York, Toronto and other parts of the world are taking this possible epidemic seriously.

Some notable individuals claim to suffer from Morgellons, including musician, Joni Mitchell and former baseball player Billy Koch. It is possible this is an infectious disease, due to the presence of it in entire families and it is found more among nurses and teachers who come into contact with a number of people on a daily basis. Morgellons is reported more in California, Florida and Texas than anywhere else, although it is found throughout the world.

Morgellons – Airway Cleared in Two Days!

Mr. Phillip J.

 

“I have this dreaded disease called Morgellons; I could feel these glass like fibers in my throat and in my nose/sinuses. 

My throat began bleeding as well as my nose. I did my research on the net.

To see if there were any cures / treatment. I discovered NutraSilver. I ordered some right away, by the time my order arrived my air way and sinuses were already beginning to close up with these fibers.

I was coughing and caging, it was terrible. I was beginning to panic. So when my order arrived I couldn’t open it fast enough. I put the drops in some bottled water I purchased gargled and drank it down. I felt the fibers

Wow! I'm back to normal life again!

loosen in my throat almost right away. I had also introduced NutraSilver in my nose and sinuses. One treatment started to clear my nasal passages. At first I started to swallow those loosened fibers way back in my throat but stopped swallowing and quickly began coughing them up and spitting them out instead. I kept this routine up until after a few days my throat and nasal passages cleared up. The only thing left was my lungs; for I kept coughing fibers up out of my lungs. It seems the NutraSilver was helping my immune system because I began feeling better as well. The crawling underneath my skin had all but stopped. I didn’t have the open soars with fibers growing out, my problem is mostly internal. I had some red welts / blotches on my left arm, it is the only thing I have left at this time, but clearing my lungs and throat was a life saver. To be able to breathe clean fresh air again and feeling so much better is heaven sent. It’s my personal believe that if I can stop any re-infection that perhaps NutraSilver can keep this disease so well under control it would be like not having the disease at all. 

Thank You NutraSilver!”

Morgellons Theories Abound! Which is True?

Few ailments in recent history have been the subject of as much controversy and even ridicule as Morgellon’s Disease (or Syndrome). Having been in the medical limelight a great deal of late due to a plethora of cases, mostly in the southern US and west coast, experts of many types ranging from psychiatrists to epidemiologists have taken sides, either as believers or scoffers.

The condition itself is mysterious and horrifying: its victims have the sensation of insects crawling under their skin; they even claim that strange fibers, varying in color, emerge from their bodies at different points. Tragically, some who exhibit such unusual symptoms have been so tortured by the intense pain that, not finding any relief, and being derided as delusional by the medical profession, they have taken their lives.

Singer Joni Mitchell has Morgellons

Another theory involves the possible result of genetically-modified foods causing insects to mutate. Since these foods haven’t been around long enough for us to know exactly how they will affect the environment, how can we tell if other organisms haven’t already maladapted? Look at the MRSA bacteria: these “supergerms” have evolved due to being bombarded with antibiotics. It’s not a far stretch to suppose that higher lifeforms could react in a similar manner.

Conventional medicine has labeled the disease a mental illness, claiming the sufferers imagine the parasites afflicting them subcutaneously. How, then, would they come up with the colored fibers emerging from the lesions that are supposedly self-inflicted? Also, why would the cases reported be more prevalent in specific regions of the country? Some theories currently being explored are links to actual parasites. In fact there is some resemblance to one parasite, called loa loa, that has its life cycle under the skin of its human host, after being virtually injected by the bite of the adult fly. Although this may not be the actual culprit, there is the possibility that another, at this point unknown/unnamed, insect is responsible.

Still another idea involves an offshoot-illness caused by Lyme Disease. Some scientists claim there are similarities between this illness, caused by deer ticks (another parasite), and Morgellon’s. In this event, there is hope for the victims, as Lyme Disease IS treatable.

While the scientific world still squabbles over the reality of this ailment, the alternative medicine field is searching for solutions. There is some hope already of effective herbal treatments, for example. In the meantime, holistic health providers look at patients not as hysterical self-mutilators, but as people with legitimate conditions, in need of help, and in need of being believed.

What is the Truth?

The truth is that no one, except perhaps those who created Morgellons, really knows and Morgellons is still a medical mystery.

What Can You Do if YOU have Morgellons?

Carol    2009

“Even though I didn’t have the fiber aspect of morgellons,I believe I would have gotten to that point had I not been introduced to NutraSilver®. I participated in a beta test using NutraSilver® as a Morgellons remedy. Within one week, the lesions began to heal and dissipate. After a few weeks, almost all of the sores were gone. I continued to experience outbreaks of the stinging and biting sensation that coincided with the full and new moon lunar phase. This phenomenon is consistent with reproduction in parasites and worms. As long as I took NutraSilver®, the morgellons outbreaks were minor and the tiny sores healed immediately. If I stopped, the lesions rapidly multiplied and spread. I have now been taking NutraSilver® daily for morgellons treatment for over 2 years. I take 30 drops 2-3x/day. …..”

Joni Mitchell Successfully Treated For Morgellons Disease

Joni Mitchell has revealed publicly that she has had Morgellons disease for the past 20 years. I have spoken with hundreds of Morgellons sufferers during the last three years, so I have a glimmer of how much this gifted singer has suffered. Joni said she has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on Doctors, pharmaceuticals and every other kind of health-care practitioner imaginable over the years in many different countries including some of the best Doctors and hospitals in the USA as well.

All she got was worse. Until now…

Joni mentioned she was so angry with most of her Doctors, since none of them knew anything at all about Morgellons. All of them took her money and gave her prescription drugs, herbs, potions and lotions. She said “Most of them are out for the money and pretend they know about Morgellons so she would come back for further help.” continue reading…..

Morgellons: A hidden epidemic or mass hysteria? part 1

Full-blown Morgellons lesions outbreak

This is the first in a 3 part series sharing a Morgellons sufferers experiences attending the 4th annual Morgellons conference in Texas this year.

It’s a mysterious condition that affects tens of thousands worldwide. But what is it?

Credits; everything in italics on this blog is attributed to Will Storr of the Guardian.

We believe Will Storr has done a fabulous service to the Morgellons Community by telling the real truth about this life-stealing infection and how the Medical Community at large is quick to dismiss the symptoms as Delusions of Parasitosis (DOP) without even a mere look.

Will, it is more like hundreds of thousands are symptomatic rather then tens of thousands. After five years of helping Morgellons sufferers we agree on most other points. Great job.

Long Morgellons fibers

Optical image of what sufferers are adamant are morgellons fibres in skin samples – are they made up of alien ­matter, or are ­everyday materials the more likely explanation? Photograph: Vitaly Citovsky/Suny at Stony Brook

It all started in August 2007, on a family holiday in New England. Paul had been watching Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix with his wife and two sons, and he had started to itch. His legs, his arms, his torso – it was everywhere. It must be fleas in the seat, he decided.

But the 55-year-old IT executive from Birmingham has been itching ever since, and the mystery of what is wrong with him has only deepened. When Paul rubbed his fingertips over the pimples that dotted his skin, he felt spines. Weird, alien things, like splinters. Then, in 2008, his wife was soothing his back with surgical spirit when the cotton swab

she was using gathered a curious blue-black haze from his skin. Paul went out, bought a $50 microscope and examined the cotton. What were those curling, colored fibres? He Googled the words: “Fibres. Itch. Sting. Skin.” And there was his answer. It must be: all the symptoms fitted. He had a new disease called morgellons. The fibres were the product of mysterious creatures that burrow and breed in the body. As he read on, he had no idea that morgellons would turn out to be the worst kind of answer imaginable.

Morgellons was named in 2001 by an American called Mary Leitao, whose son complained of sores around his mouth and the sensation of “bugs”. Examining him with a toy microscope, Leitao found him to be covered in unexplained red, blue, black and white fibres. Since then, workers at her Morgellons Research Foundation say they have been contacted by more than 12,000 affected families. Campaign group the Charles E Holman Foundation states there are sufferers in “every continent except Antarctica“. Thousands have written to Congress demanding action. In response, more than 40 senators, including Hillary

Joni says she has suffered with Morgellons for over 20 years

Clinton, John McCain and a pre-presidential Barack Obama, pressured the Centres For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC) to investigate; in 2006, it formed a special taskforce, setting aside $1m to study the condition. Sufferers include folk singer Joni Mitchell, who has complained of “this weird incurable disease that seems like it’s from outer space… Fibres in a variety of colors protrude out of my skin: they cannot be forensically identified as animal, vegetable or mineral. Morgellons is a slow, unpredictable killer – a terrorist disease. It will blow up one of your organs, leaving you in bed for a year.”

 Read about Joni’s remarkable recovery.

So it’s new, frightening and profoundly odd. But if you were to seek the view of the medical establishment, you’d find the strangest fact about this disease: morgellons doesn’t exist. [that will be the conclusion of the CDC after 3 years of investigation.]

I meet Paul in a pub in a Birmingham suburb. He shows me pictures he’s collected of his fibres. On his laptop, a grim parade of images flicks past. There are sores, scabs and nasal hairs, each magnified by a factor of 200. In each photo there is a tiny colored fiber on or in his skin.

“Is it an excrement?” he asks. “A by-product? A structure they live in?” A waitress passes with a tray of salad as he points to an oozing wound. “Is it a breathing pipe?”

Actual Morgellons lesions

Paul absent-mindedly digs his nails into a lesion just below the hem of his shorts. Little red welts pepper his legs and arms, some dulled to a waxy maroon, others just plasticky-white scar tissue.

He has seen an array of experts – GPs, allergy doctors, infectious diseases clinicians and dermatologists. Most end up agreeing with the skin specialist to whom he first took samples of his fiber-stained cotton: his sores are self-inflicted and he suffers from delusions of parasitosis (DOP), a psychiatric condition in which people falsely believe themselves to be infested. This particular form of DOP is thought to be unique, in that it’s spread through the internet. Whereas in the past, episodes of mass hysteria were limited to small communities – perhaps the most famous being the witch panic in Salem, Massachusetts in the 1690s – today, imagined symptoms can spread much farther on the web.

Paul is not convinced by this diagnosis. He carries an alcohol hand gel everywhere he goes, has four showers a day and steam-cleans his clothes. The stress leaves him exhausted, short-tempered. He has difficulty concentrating or applying himself at work. His lowest points have been “pretty much feeling like ending it. Thinking, could I go through with it? Probably. It’s associated with the times the medical profession have dismissed me. It’s just… I can’t see myself living for ever with this.”

I have never seen anything like this. What is Morgellons, anyway?

Has he mentioned these thoughts to his doctor?

“No, because talking about things like that adds a mental angle – supports the prognosis of DOP. And it’s absolutely a physical condition. I mean, look!”

The evidence on his computer does appear convincing. Much thinner than his body hair, the fibres seem to be protruding from his sores. But what are they? And how did they get there? To find out, I’m heading to the 4th Annual Morgellons Conference in Austin, Texas, to meet a molecular biologist who doesn’t believe the medical consensus. Rather, he argues, the forensic tests he’s commissioned on the fibres point to something altogether more unworldly.

Dr. Randy Wymore, PhD

In spring 2005, Randy Wymore, associate professor of pharmacology at Oklahoma State University, stumbled across an article about morgellons. Reading about the fibres sufferers believed were the byproduct of some weird parasite, but which were dismissed by dermatologists as humdrum environmental detritus, he thought, “But this should be easy to figure out.” He emailed sufferers, requesting samples, then compared them with samples of cotton, nylon, carpets and curtains. Examining them under the microscope, he got a shock. The sufferers’ fibres looked utterly different.

Wymore arranged for fibre analysis at the Tulsa police department’s forensic laboratory. Moments into his tests, a detective with 28 years’ experience of this sort of work murmured, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this.” The morgellons particles didn’t match any of the 800 fibres on their database, nor the 85,000 known organic compounds. He heated one fibre to 600C and was astonished to find it didn’t burn. By the day’s end, Wymore concluded, “There’s something real going on here. Something we don’t understand at all.”

Last year, he approached several commercial laboratories to run further tests, but the moment they discovered the job was related to morgellons, firm after firm backed out. Finally, Wymore found a lab prepared to take the work. It is these results that will be revealed during the course of the two-day conference.
