Also wanted to mention that a much cheaper way of fighting these things...
I put have a vile of alcohol and half Hydrogen Peroxide and put all over active area...shere crawling occurring - for me a lot of it starts in the feet and legs so I smear it all over there...seems to keep them from crawling at night - it's a lot cheaper than TTO and seems to work as well or better. The TTO price has shot up recently...must be a lot of people with this stuff, it's driving the price thru the roof.
Also, found two homeopathics that in combination at least for me stop them from crawling - got 9 hours sleep last night from using them and the alcohol... Arsenicum Album - 30c or x and also Nux Vomica - 30c or x... seem to work so far... I've gotten a lot of relief over time using the homeos...I'm convinced therein will lie our cure - it vibrates throughout the entire body and will kill them when we find the right one...also, if people get samples of these critters you can get a remedy made out of the worms themselves and that would kill them right off!
Happy bug killing!

Alfalfa tabs in bath with Sun Laundry Detergent/with color safe bleach for Morgellons. I couldn't believe what all was coming out of my skin. I just did it yesterday, and again this morning. They aren't gone, but incredible results so far. This was done after starting the twice a day baking soda 1/4 tsp in water and Natural Cellular Defense drops for 1 week.

Can anyone out there tell me if it has been proven that the body does better combating morgellons with a more alkaline system, or is the jury still out on this ? Some people online say alkaline is better, others say acidic is better. Has scientific research been done on this ?
I was looking for what is in star anise, as I bought powdered of it a long time ago as backup in case of a bad flu. I saw it had something called Anethole. When I searched on this I saw this title:
Anethole, a synergist of polygodial against filamentous microorganisms
wait, what is that? doesn't that sound like -- yes! It is. "filamentous microorganisms" = morgellon's!!
OK so what has anethole?
Oil of bitter fennel contains more than 60% anethole
Sweet fennel usually contains more anethole than bitter fennel oil.
Star Anise contains trans-anethole (note: 1 version of a plant called this is edible another is toxic)
Anise (Pimpinella anisum) (not the same thing or even related to star anise) contains anethole
Anethole extracted from basil is available for sale online, used in daily food flavors
Anethole occurs naturally in chickpea seed. Garbanzo beans are also known as chickpeas. commonly sprouted.
Brief ref that got my attention as I was talking about carrageenan and (totally separately) fluid retentention recently (it is in many cream cheese, half&half and creams where I shop):"Anethole inhibited carrageenan-induced edema at doses of 3, 10 and 30 mg/kg from 60 to 240 min after induction."
Anethole seems to be like other plant substances that will kill-bad-things-in-you: super powerful, last resort when immunity can't do it, but able to be overdosed on for sure
It sounds to me like this substance may be a potential for treating morgellon's. I had never heard this before, so I wanted to share it on EarthClinic in case people with that issue search there, just for ref.
Morgellons help: I moved from indianapolis to spencer indiana 3 years ago. We never had problems like Morgellons until we moved. I think some how this Morgellons is related to Lyme. Indiana is the capitol of the limestone industry. There are a few limestone Quarys in our area. The fuzz balls and fibers we see in our home and on us resemble those fibers found on lymebusters under jeuvenile Nematomorphus. We use a lot of garlic and vinegar. Before going to bed at night I find great relief after bathing I rub regular cider vinegar directly on by body all over. I have a dollar store spray bottle filled with vinegar and I spray it all around my room and on my bed. I get relief. Vinegar I found out has 93vitamins and minnerals in it. Try to eat garlic as well. I hope they find out what this is soon. I am tired of No Answers. This vinegar spraying works for me. It is not a cure, but I can get a LOT OF RELIEF>

Hi Earth Clinic family
I desperately need your help with a mystery parasite. For the past two months or more I have had symptoms of mite or parasite "invasion"... I use that word because I definitely feel invaded. Like with Morgellons the Md's dismiss the person as "delusional"; that was the word the "Skin Doctor" with all the degrees said to me. I went to my doctor and was ignored and sent to a specialist who barely looked at me and wanted to give me drugs for the symptoms and not really interested in finding the cause. I surfed the web and could find nothing until I found a blog with symptoms like mine... Here is an excerpt :
"People are contracting a tiny white insect, arthropod, or parasite from clothing of retail stores or other people. This pest is neither a mite nor a flea. It's not lice. It looks like fiber or thread. Yet it's not affiliated with Morgellons or Fibre Disease. Please pay close attention as I describe the physical attributes and symptoms of this pest. If someone has this pest, they will see 3 types of White things:
1) tiny round things about the size of a spec of salt; some are a little larger
2) tiny, oblong shaped, things that look like a piece of thread or fiber; varies in length from 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch long (It grows. ) **It unfolds itself to fly. It crawls also.
3) slightly larger round white things that jump. I see #1 and #2 most often. If someone has this pest, they will have the following physical symptoms:
1) Bites that sting 2) Red skin rashes and/or small red bumps 3) Lighting sensations; Victims will feel the pest or its eggs lighting on their skin. 4) Optional: Itching
**I don't itch, but another victim has an itching problem.**
This article was from 2006 and my problem started this past summer. So I ask friends from around the world if this sounds familiar or anything similar can you post your experience. I think this is new to the US because I have not found much info. I for one have the skin crawling feeling and itchy skin. Any help is welcomed. Thanks, Bev

that's the future of nanobots in our vaccines. lol. the swine flu is picnic. wait until they put this stuff in our vaccines for swine flu!
By accident, my medical issues with black dot syndrome/Morgellons disease have been cured. The problem began in June of 2011 and ended in May of 2014. Besivance was prescribed for cataract surgery, 1 drop twice a day. Twelve days after the first cataract was removed, I had surgery on the other eye and repeated the Besivance med. I used the drops for 28 days and all of the fibers, black specks, sharp particles, white egg sacs, etc. appear to have dried up in my body. Curious about this, I researched Besivance on the Internet and read that it kills parasites by stopping the reproductive process. Fifteen days ago I stopped using the eye drops.
During the winter of 2011 I vacationed in S.E. Asia where two insects bit me. In June I received a bite from a fly in Calif. while gardening, and I think that caused the problem. A few weeks after the fly bite, larvae and pupae emerged through my skin pores. Treatments of essential oil(s)/olive oil lessened the symptoms. Many brown casings also came out of my skin cells. I strongly suspect there was a connection between the fly myiasis and black specks/Morgellons disease.
Other symptoms were extremely painful joints, brain fog, and insomnia, all of which have now disappeared. Another symptom which I have not seen mentioned in any forums is that my limbs, breasts, and abdomen were covered with dark brown spots, some of which had a rough texture. About 80 percent of my skin now looks normal.
Hopefully, this will be helpful to you.
I believe I have had Morgellons Disease for 23 years....lucky me! Three weeks ago I started taking 1/8th teaspoon Borax (a natural mineral), 1/8th teaspoon 35% Hydrogen Peroxide and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in a liter of water every day. I drink it slowly throughout the day and when finished switch to regular water. At first I was breaking out like crazy with itchy welts on my legs. That's completely cleared. My face continues to break out but the lesions are not near as bad when I first started. I also use essential oils soap, body balm and herbal bath. The fibers and black specs come out of the lesions with these products. I highly recommend them.
My question is: I know my cat has this disease. He has lost fur on his legs from licking so much. I fear that he is reinfecting me and I him. Is there anything I can do to help him?
PS: I see you have treatment for dogs and refer folks to the mange borax treatment but have heard that borax will kill cats. Is this true? Thanks again.

Hi, I have a friend who had a bad case of Morgellons, her arms & legs were covered in bloody looking sores & she told me that weird threads came out of these sores, she had been to her doctor who didn't have a clue as to what to do for her. I got interested in colloidal silver after I became allergic to antibiotics and wondered what on Earth I was going to do the next time I got seriously ill. I got sick and it was going into my chest , I was coughing all the time & had a very sore throat, I was frightend, but I went to the health food store & bought a little bottle of silver and took it and vitamin c about every hour, just a dropper of silver and 1000mg of vitamin c, in just two days it was gone, before I would be sick for weeks. Later I learned about how to make it myself with an inexpensive machine see firstname.lastname@example.org and now I can stop everything before it gets me very ill. I brought some to my friend and she began to put it on the sores & drink it internally in a few weeks they were healing up and now it is all gone, she just has white scars wherethe sores were. This stuff will kill over 650 different pathogens including virus's whereas antibiotics kill only bacteria and only about 30 strains. I have been taking it for over five years with no ill effects and my friend with the morgellons has been taking it for 3 years with no side affects except to get rid of the disease.

I am helping a close friend find cures for morgellons, as shes been dealing with this for months and drs have all told her shes crazy - so we are going the natural path and have found alot of interesting facts and hope for complete recovery. We are ordering MMS so that my gf can begin treatment with it, in hopes of a complete cure. Other than that, she is on a very healthy diet, which includes no meat and will build up to a completely raw diet - in order to build her immune system up and aid all of her organs in function. She has noticed a tremendous difference just since we've changed her diet. Bacteria feeds on sugars, which are in all processed foods in some form, and parasites feed on bacteria. Elminate the sugars and ure on ur way! Also, she drinks apple cider vinegar mixed w/water, cayenne, lemon juice, and grade a or b maple syrup twice a day. Nightly baths with food grade h2o2 and baking soda
And a glass of red wine at night to help her laugh, relax, and sleep. Red wine has antibodies which boost the immune system.. Plus, the most important part of healing is a good mind set. This is the first time she's laughed in months :) Use caution of course, and dont over-do it! We started with colloidal silver drops under the tongue every two hrs but are switching to the MMS as soon as we get it.
Hope this helps someone! Good luck and many blessings to u all!
I was visiting another forum... Believe me, I need all the help I can get! I posted about night-time tooth pain, and that the pain was just like an ordinary bad one, but instead of the throbbing, I felt movement, along with the intense pain. I tried gargling with warm salt water (which used to work well, until I contracted Morgellons, and they got into/behind my teeth)... I tried hydrogen peroxide swish... Nothing. I read a post, after I'd posted a question about this, in answer to it. Oh yeah, I'd also mentioned that I have two compromised wisdom teeth (phobia of dentists), and that I also, receintly, had felt the roof of my mouth with my tongue, and felt "swirls" of stuff up there, for several days. I had also been clamping down on a garlic clove at bedtime, and all night, which did help, at first, but no longer. In answer, I had a reply telling me to gargle with concord grape juice and seltzer water, to get rid of the "worms" on the roof of my mouth. The poster wrote that I should be prepared to see some horrifying stuff, but that this was really a good thing. It took me a couple of days to get to the store; so meanwhile, I brushed my teeth 2-3 times/day with my baking soda/sea salt/clove oil mixture, and also added some borax to the mix, for good measure. For two days, I did this, along with sleeping with a clove of garlic. Before I could get to the store, two days later, the "worms" on the roof of my mouth started to disappear on the side that my teeth were bothering me most; then completely disappeared, along with the night time toothaches. So I started, the second night with the clove of garlic on the other side, where I have another (not so completely) compromised wisdom tooth, and those worms disappeared too... and no more toothaches. Meanwhile, I was able to go and purchase the concord grape juice, but forgot the seltzer water. Even though the "worms" on the roof of my mouth were almost completely gone, and my toothaches were greatly releived by now, I decided to gargle/swish with the concord grape juice, anyway, to see if anything came out when I spit into the toilet. I decided to use vodka in place of the spritzer water, for some reason... let me tell you... I have done this 3-4 times now at random, and it is always the same: all kinds of black specks, small worms (look biological, like cooked rice noodles), red blobs, clear blobs, a few stirophome-looking things, came out. Each time I do this, I swish hard 20 times, back and forth, spit, then repeat 2-3 more times; and each time tons of gross worms and black specks come out. I believe the purple grape juice makes the stuff you spit out a lot more visible, and it seems, also to release them. I don't think "they" like it. Wow. I do not have a bathtub here, so have not been able to do the soaks that many claim release tons of crap. I am so glad for this, though... at least I've gotten them to leave my mouth and teeth alone.
I hope this helps others.
I've decided that "misery doesn't love company", but misery NEEDS company. Love and Peace and greatest of health...

Like everyone else who has posted, I have been driven crazy with the itchy condition. It was so bad that I would scratch my skin until it bled. I had a bottle of Corn Huskers lotion. You can find it in any drug store in the lotion and moisturizer isle. It is a very thick gel lotion. I used it on my legs and within minutes tiny black spots rose to the surface. I had to use a magnifying glass to see them. I continued to use the lotion on my whole body allowing it to dry. Then I got in the shower and wash the lotion and the black spot off. After towel dryng, I reapplied the lotion and went through the same process. After the second shower, I reapplied the lotion and went to bed for the first night of uninterrupted sleep in months. In the morning I showered and reapplied the lotion. Tody is the first day I can function without the constant itching of my skin. I hope this will help everyone who is suffering from this horrible problem. I plan to continue the lotion for several weeks until I feel completely sure the problem is gone. Good Luck!

I am still unraveling the mystery of how my sleep apnea was cured, because even with plenty of Vitamin C, occasionally I know I have suffered in my sleep because I wake up with a headache. I have more to add which seems to be a very important part of my protocol. Before my last sleep study which determined me to be "cured", I had begun drinking cream of tartar in water several times a day, because I had read that cream of tartar kills candida. And it DID trim down my bloated stomach. Cream of tartar is a by product of the grape/wine industry. It can be found in any grocery store in the spice section. You can also buy it in bulk at some bulk food stores.
I also practiced swishing grape juice in my mouth for about 3 minutes and then spitting it out. The second time will bring out more than the first, the third more than the second, etc. I generally do it about 10 times in one session and it takes me about 30 minutes. I just go about my business while I'm swishing. Spit it into a white sink or white bowl. Then look at your tongue and scrape them off your tongue. Yes, really! I bought a tongue scraper for this. One time the grape juice brought out a thread like fiber that was 2 inches long! You can read about the grape juice swish at Bariumblues.com. On this site they say if you have dentures it won't work, because they come out of the roots around your teeth, but I would think they would still come out of your tongue because apparently they come out of your blood stream. If you do this you will be startled by what comes out of your system (blood?). The first time I did this I spit out a lot of things that actually looked like tiny moths! I swear they had wings! I spit them into a white bowl and left it for the liquid to evaporate and after a few days, the "moths" actually crystallized. If you read the posts on this website about Morgellons, you will understand what I am getting at. I have been doing this from time to time for several years now. Whatever these things are they seem to reproduce rapidly, however, I have never again seen any as large as the very first time. Some were so big they actually got stuck between my teeth! The ones I get now are very small, but there are lots of them. I don't know if these things are from Morgellons or from Candida. I only know that it seems that about 2 or 3 weeks after doing this, I start to struggle again in my sleep and so then I do it again. It is as if these things have reproduced again to the point where they can congregate in my throat and nasal area at night, blocking my airways! On the section here about Morgellons, one of the treatments that is recommended is Vitamin C, but I believe that is only one part of it. I take about one half teaspoon cream of tartar in water 3 times a day. It is bitter, yes, but if you drink it in grape juice you don't taste it. For the grape juice swish, you may have to try several brands until you find one that works the best for you. I have been using Welch's concord grape juice. Even some red wines will work, especially if you add a tiny splash of hydrogen peroxide. However, you will be shocked by what you see and will want to do it again and again to get rid of all of them, and the peroxide seems to make the teeth very sensitive for several days, so DON'T overdo this if using peroxide! Also on the Morgellons section it was stated that these "fibers" hang out in the feet during the day. That would explain why my feet burn horribly if I drink grape juice in anything more than very small amounts! It must cause a very rapid die off and too much debris building up in my feet!
On the posts here about ACV for sleep apnea, my guess is that a lot of juices probably draw these things out, and maybe even alcohol, it is just that the grape juice dyes them so dark you can see them. I like to be able to see them! As far as weight gain and sleep apnea, when I was diagnosed I was the thinnest I'd been in over 20 years. I am 5 ft 6 in. And weighed about 142 lbs at that time. This is an ongoing search for me to solve this mystery to keep my cure and to help others and I will post more if I think of something else that I believe has contributed to my cure! Another thing that the cream of tartar does for me, I have had chronic weeping and tearing of the eyes for 10 years and it stops when I take the cream of tartar! It seems to me that I don't need to do both the cream of tartar and the grape juice swish, just one of them. Either the C. of T everyday, or the grape juice swish every 10 days or so. It may be different for you. You may want to do both until you get the population of these things under control! We all have to experiment and learn what works for us. Hope this helps someone!
Ted or Bill might know whether it is appropriate to use deltamethrin against these bugs in the house. I can't buy tetrasodium EDTA here.
