[YEA] I recently went through an emotional upset in my life that brought on the worst lesions I have experienced in years from Morgellons. I have lesions on my face, butt, arms, chest and back of upper legs. I was trying everything to calm the lesions down, including vitamins, acv, hydrogen eroxide, polysporin, and whatever else I could think of.
not sure how to explain how I thought of this, but I have realized for quite some time my body temp has been very low, usually 97.5 and as low as 95.5 throughout the day.
I took pictures of my lesions last week as I wanted to record my progress. My intent was to raise my body temp in the bath gradually to get a "fever" as I know they do this in third world countries to kill off parasites and viruses. I put a cup of ebpsom salts so I could relax as temp changes, especially heat bothers me. So I started off with my bath at 99 degrees, and waited about 15 mintutes until my body got used to the temp change, my temp raised to almost 98 degress. I drained some water, and put more hot water, this time a little hotter than before, about 101 degrees. my body temp increased to 98.3 and was rising, I kept doing this until I finally reached 98.6, and tayred in the bath until my body temp reached 99.2, which took about 45 minutes. I wrappred myself in a robe, wrapped my hair in a towel and went to bed and cried. My body ever felt so relaxed.
After about an hour I rinsed off in the shower and took my body temp, it was 98.6!!!!!!! I could not believe my eyes. I noticed something else unusual, I felt hungry for the first time in years. I ate food, put mineral make-up on and went to my parents house for a planned dinner. My face and lesions felt like they were healing, and the localized pain I felt was gone, I would press on the lesions and they had no pain whatsoever. When I got to my parents, my stomach was grumbling, I loved that feeling, and I had eaten twice before I got there.
When I got home at 10pm, I took my temp it was 98.3 and my lesions had actually scabbed over for the first time ever. The next morning I got up and my scabs were already ready to come off, and my body temp was 98.6!!!!!
I then went for a jog took my temp which had plummeted to 95.9 I was devastated..... I took my temp throughout the day, it went back to 97.5 normal (for me) and my lesions started to look like they were aggrivated, and I could see the little white things underneath. My usual protocal was to get the tweezers to remove them, but then I thought "why not" raise my body temp again? and see what happens.
I got my temp to 99.1 which is high as I could get that time.. Got out of bath and again my lesion were flat, painless and healing. I did not have any epsom salts for this bath.
As I sit here writing this, I woke up this morning with my 97.5. Did the bath until my body temp raised to 99.2, my lesions are almost gone, I mean healed! My temp at this moment is 98.6 and my stomach is growling for food, and I ate 3 hours ago. This is as much of a miracle as the lesions healing. The downside is I feel very relaxed at this body temp, almost lazy, the tension is gone in my body, but it is such a weird feeling not to feel tension in my jaw or hands. Judging by my spit this morning I am getting better RAPIDLY. My spit was 70% floating and clear with bubbles in a glass, usually it just drops right to bottom with tons of white debris and yucky stuff.
I got this idea from reading that Lyme and morgellons people suffer low body temp, like me, which according to articles on the web, can be normal. I knew in my heart and soul, that it was NOT normal for me. Just so you know I have an infared sauna which also can cause hyperthermia, but I sweat too much which cools my body temp, so I can't get the results I get from a hot bath.
My last piece of advise is take it slow, draw a bath that feels comfortable to start, and keep draining and filling until you get the water to 102 to 104 which is the same as a hot tub temp. I did try taking a hyperthermia bath in the past, but I never got my temp up cuz I was trying to achieve 103 body temp to get a fever, but I could never last in the tub because it felt TOO HOT, and I went get out before I felt any benefits. I have concluded that whatever we have it is heat senstive in our bodies, and it multplies when are bodies run a low temp, and connot survive in our normal temp.
My intention is too evetually get to the point I can break a fever, as my doctor told me, that is the bodies natural defense to invading organisms. I pray this helps someone suffering, please post results so thers may befenit.
Lastly, if you have said "oh I take baths all the time, it never has helped", I would say, use your therm until you achieve 99 degrees and THEN decide if this helps you or not. Ideally 100 degrees is a fever, so this would be a goal to achieve over time. It is normal for your heart to race as your body temp rises, it will normalize as lay to rest after your bath.
