I am in contact with a biochemist who is experimenting with remedies for morgellons, the type that include sores w/fibers that are actually a type of nano polymer. Last contact info was using grated fresh horseradish root which contains an enzyme to break down the fibers. This enzyme can be searched as it has been isolated & concentrated by certain labs & it is very expensive to purchase. As this is in the experimental stage, I will update to advise progress, however, I thought that this info should be posted as in theory it appears to be beneficial. I would start with grating small amounts & to offset the burn, I would add some honey & take 2-3 times a day. I don't think that adding to foods would be a problem. Please post any results you may have & I will contact my source who is also trying this on themself. Horseradish is in a family botanical group that happens to have more of this enzyme than its other members. As always, go easy & let your body be your guide.

[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.Posted by Jennifer (Los Angeles, California) on 01/09/2009
[YEA] I have morgellons and i am being treated by dr. staninger in los angeles. She uses Far infra red radiant heat therapy treatment and i think that anyone that has morgellons should use this treatment. I was in the hospital emergency room three times the week i went to see dr. staninger. I couldn't breath due to the morgellons attacking my throat, lungs and esophagus. It took 3 weeks using her far infra red machines and other machines she has at her clinic and now i can breath again when i didn't know if i was going to live when i was in the hospital. I purchased two of her far infra red machines to use at home and i sleep under them every night. I recommend this therapy for morgellons. And i just want to mention that Far infra red is different then just Infra red. And the machines dr. staninger uses are specifically tested for morgellons patients. I would only purchase the ones that she sells for safety reasons since morgellons patients have silicon in their bodies.
Oh and one other thing. If you want to test and see that your morgellons is not a parasite and is a man made technology. Buy Pedifix tea tree oil lotion and Endure 2000 lotion. Rub the pedifix on your lesions and then rub the endure 2000 on your lesions. You will be amazed at the silicon plastic goo that comes out of the lesions. This technique will help to flatten them as well. Also, if you look at your lesions under ultra violet light you will notice they have a flourecent glow. This is a man made disease we are dealing with another natural.Replied by Julie
