In frustration I've decided to attack these buggers with all I have...they do seem to fight back even harder when you attack them though...kind of scary! But here goes, what seems to work...
Cats Claw...saw definite improvement when I started using this the other day, they were becoming quite strong and I needed to try something so this definately pushed them back....they say the alcohol tincture is stronger and that the Samento (Cats Claw w/the TOA taken out which makes it better but much more expensive)...
They say Echinacea works well with Cats Claw and it is an insecticide may kill those bugs...I'm taking Super Echinacea (has all 3 Echinaceas in one tincture)
Also taking Apple Cider Vinegar tabs daily
Black Walnut & Clove & Wormwood wormer...available everywhere
Neem also kills lots of bugs
Olive Leaf Extr or Pau d'Arco are both great antifungals, antivirals and more
Salt/Peroxide Baths I also add some aromatherapy to bubble bath and throw in: Lemon, Eucalyptus, a little clove, lavendar and there are others that are good for parasites
Ginger, Ginsent, Green Tea
Also Garlic tabs...Im taking 1500 mg daily
Silica homeopathic is good for clearing things out of the skin
Nat Phos homeopathic is good for alkalinity worms thrive in acid states
Eat lots of eggs...has sulphur in and is good for adrenals (stress)
Arsenicum Alba homeopathic I have read will cure cutaneous larva migrans, skin maggots and other similar parasites so might work in right dose
Take good quality vitamin I use Vitamin Worlds Green Multi pretty good...keep you healthy while your body is under this attack
Magnesium 500 mg daily
Also taking Sulphur homeopathic 6C 2x daily
1/4 tsp baking soda in glass of water 2x day
In frustration I've decided to attack these buggers with all I have...they do seem to fight back even harder when you attack them though...kind of scary! But here goes, what seems to work...
Have anyone on this site dealt with Morgellons? I can't find medical help and am getting more and more ill daily. I am using Oregano Oil, Tumeric, have tried MSM with no help, taking baths in peroxide and salt. If you have any other suggestions that have worked for you PLEASE reply. Thanks

I am not cured. I am better on some things. I tried the salt and C with regular salt and nothing happened. I have not found salt tablets, the company apparently went belly up. I got rid of the sores with peroxide and salt. I can't stay on the diet, but it does improve things for the few weeks I can do it. For a number of symptoms I use chuan xin lian, 4.00 at the vietnamese herbal store. Just chuan xin lian, not the mixture with other herbs. 4 pills 3x daily. It is an antiviral,antibiotic. The Chinese use it for spirochete diseses like leptospirosis and syphilis. Peroxide baths:1 large Wal-Mart peroxide plus 1salt container full. I think both are roughly 32 ounces. I had large sores that wouldn't heal and joint pain; vision problems, respiratory problems, fatigue,bouts of violence,depression, problems thinking,concentrating, memory,and I get lost in places I should know. I use coconut oil to moisturize after the baths, and black specs come out of my skin. Once whole black threads and tarry gunk came out after a bath; I wiped this off with paper towel and threw it away. I am pretty sure I got this from bedding.

Morgellons is not a disease it is a parasite, round worm it effects people in poor health and a high fungal load in the body. It really likes fungus so you need to wash with neem soap, or any other soap that removes bacteria. Then you need to take neem leaf it stops people dogs and cats and blood sucking bugs like scabies, body lice fleas and round worm from reproducing no more eggs.......If it cant produce then it wont spread. It takes a while for the neem leaf to get into your blood. Then you need to take msm (sulfur) it keeps parasites from being able to cling to your intesines walls. Then you need to take humana worm parasite killing herbs. Then i would also add worm wood it is known for killing parasites. Then you need to take clove it kills any eggs dead. You should really look into neem and all the wonderful things it can do its amazing...... some people use it as birth control.

Morgellons: I have an update on this condition... latest discovery is NEEM SEED OIL - can buy online in large bottles fairly reasonably...mix it with some liquid dishwashing soap (Dawn, etc.) just enough soap to emulsify the neem so it will blend into your bath water (by the way this is a neat trick to make any oil blend w/water)... /for some reason it makes the water feel so silky... I love it... But they don't like it and that's the best part... I also add into this mixture 5 drops Lavendar Oil, 5 drops Eucalyptus, 5 drops Peppermint Oil, 3 drops Clove Oil, 3 drops Cinnamon Bark Oil, and Tea Tree Oil - I use quite a bit of TTO - to use to suit.... after you have emulsified this, mix in w/bath water... and then mix neem in with shampoo and add one drop ea oil and wash hair, leave in while bathing... I take one hour baths... soothes and also weakens... If that's not enough, then put Neem Oil straight or with a drop of the other oils if needed all over body - you can put plastic wrap all over so it doesn't wipe off on clothes, sheets, etc. if you wish... The NEEM on the skin definately weakens them... This should harm both worms and insects and other things like viruses, bacteria, fungal, etc. Neem is great... I've been putting it on my skin for 3 days now and what a difference... they barely move now. Good luck with this. These will also go in your eyes... Echinacea is suppose to kill bugs so you might use SUPER ECHINACEA herb drops by Herb Pharm... and/or drink Echinacea Tea... Also Ginger is another one... I drink Ginger Tea all the time to keep my digestive tract healthy... it does a lot of things too... you can also take Ginger Extract Tablets.
Try these... see what you think... Good luck and God Bless!

I have so many of the symptoms of Morgellons, which started approx. 3 yrs. ago. Coincidently, I'e read where alot of peoples symptoms started about 3 yrs. ago give or take. Sometimes I debate within myself, if what I've been going through is Morgellons, or a tiny (rare) bloodfluke, or other rare parasite that the med doctors are just too cocky, uncaring and just plain DAMN lazy to try and figure out(they have better to do), so they rather make me feel like an ass----- or want me to think that I'm going out of my head, when I know damn well that i'M not HALLUCINATING, because I've showed my "matchbox collection" to several people and they'd never seen anything like this. I wonder how the MD's would like it or how they would feel if they had their side of their face swell up and on that same side of their face, one tooth at a time switching to a different tooth after a couple of days hurting with the most horrendous pain?
Then, getting white stringlike things out. The same looking things every time, sofar, only to hear FOOD PARTICLES. Well, Dr. Z., if you are reading this: FOOD PARTICLES MY A--!!!!!!!!!!!!Dear God knows I would never wish this on anyone, but YOU and every other selfish rude half assed dr. that ever made any of us feel crazy or ashamed, need to have this for only one day (and no more) and to feel what myself and all these other poor sufferers are going through. I bet you all would change your tunes fast. If you can't diagnose us why cant you just say that you dont know, insted of humilating us ? Is it because maybe yous are feeling humilated since we got you "stumped"? We re already suffering physically, so the brutal words only add to the fire. Any doctor should know that ones mental state can have an effect on healing, and you's sure as hell arent ones for giving out words of encouragement. Well, every dog has their day, and until yous get some compassion, you need to rethink whether or not you should use the title of DOCTOR. What happened to the hippocratic (sp?) oath? Did it change to "If we don't know whats wrong with you, we say SCREW IT, youre crazy". Seems so to me and all who do that can go straight to hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Are their any honorable doctors out there? I know their are a few (I'VE yet to meet 'em), but this ,then, evidently, dosen't pertain to you, and you have all my respect.
Anyways, I use Neem. 1/2 tsp. measured in a little cup that you get with your coughsyrup. It is Neem tree tincture (ratio 1:5) 1/2 tsp. 3 times daily evenly spaced apart as possible. It tastes horrible. you can mix it with some water. But as horrible as it tastes, if it kills whatever I have, it's worth it.

Hi Guys! I would like to inform you of Dr Omar Amin, a Parasite Specialist based in Scottsdale AZ, who has been working with many patients who show signs of Morgellons Disease. Dr Amin has submitted many publications and my guess is due to the negativity and silly conspiracy theories, he has labeled this Neurocutaneous Syndrome. He published a PPT during a conference in front of many doctors illustrating similarity in symptoms of NCS/Morgellons (including Fibers) and states it is not caused by parasites! That's right, not parasites but he states toxins that then brings about fungi, bacteria, severe nerve damage that causes nerves to misfire, which causes the lesions leaving the person a victim of Arthorpod Infestation! Though many of his patients have had dental work, it still should be relevant to you.
His patients either ingested high levels of mercury (Heavy Metal) and/or were allergic to certain chemcials; They were Zinc Oxide (found in many skin creams), Sulfa based drugs - sulfanomides (Please watch out for Bactrim as its a sulfa drug - There's a website advertising using this - it really did a number on me and my crawling sensations went on overdrive and I went from 7. 2 Urine PH to 6.2 in one day! ), Sulfites (Dont worry, MSM & DMSO are derived from sulfur, natural mineral so you can still use these), Titanium Dioxide (be careful if you shop at GNC, they lots of products now with T. D), Eugenol (Cloves, Cinnamon, and Wormwood have Eugenol so if I were you, say goodbye to Dr Clark Parasite Cleanse), and Calcium Hydroxide.
Dr Amin has a protocol available that comprises of Vitamins/minerals, Homeopathy, and Lymph Drainage Massage and has cured close to 60 people.
Please be advised a lot of the symptoms for NCS/Morgellons are due to Vitamin B Deficiency! Yes, that's right! .. The sensitivity to light, brain fog/loss of memory, crawling/tingling sensations, muscle spasms.. Etc are due to Vit B deficiency (though not the root cause). As soon as I took Vitamin B12 (form of Methylcobalamin, dont take another type of form - this one is the best one), crawling/tingling sensations drastically decreased. I have at least 4-5mg/day plus Vit B Complex (Dont waste your money on synthetic vitamins) Vit B1 that you should consider is Benfotiamine; This way its properly absorbed by your system
Magnetic Pulsing cured my joint pain I had within 2 days of pulsing 1-2min/day. Good magnetic pulsers are on eBay by Zapper Barney output at 17k gause.
My diet is low-carb vegetarian diet and no sugar (only when its a negligable amount I will take like in soups... but no more than 6g/day). My avg Urine PH is about 7.2-7.3 and my Salvia PH is about 7.3
Also if you are sensitive to Electro-magnetic fields (i. e microwaves, computers, or TVs), consider ePendant from eWater.
Also one thing that is working for me is Ted's recommendation of Sodium Bicarbonate. I take it everyday (dont add lime/lemon juice as it Sulfite) and 3x/week with 1/2 Borax 30 drops of H2H20 (be careful on your in take of Borax, start off slow as Ted advises).
It's too early to tell but I use Sea Buckthorn. Please consider if you are tired of spending money on those Borax/Epsom salt baths. It got to a point where I just had to stop wasting money on useless crap like this for bathing (though I recommend it for the first 4-6 weeks). Also please consider Far Infrared treatment (i.e. Far Infrared Sauna by Therasage that offers very low EMF output, no chemicals, and superb quality). I really hope this information is helpful! I am healing quite rapidly I feel. It seems I have had the nerve damage ever since I was small - Because it wasnt intense and because I got it at a small age (I am 27 now), I thought this was a normal thing to experience (tingling/crawling). I only found out 10 weeks ago what I had when I put essential oils on my body and bugs came out. It freaked me out!
Please be sure to research Dr Omar Amin's publications and try what you feel goes with your intuition re the above advice. Again I am rapidly healing from this. I wish you the very best!

Hi, I would like to post this comparison I've seen between what is known as Morgellon Disease. What I have noticed is that Morgellon Disease seems to be a mite and also a fungus or bacteria. It is not unknown to the government nor is it new to doctors or botanist.
Okay have you ever heard about "Oak Gallnuts"? Gallnuts are nuts that grow on many different type of trees mainly in China. The important part of the gallnut formation is the parasite or insect that stings the nut and help it form this cyst like crust. There are different types of insects that sting these nuts ex: wasp. I believe that the government was intrigued by this union that they tested and studied these trees or plants. This is because many of the trees or plants that produce these nuts are actually the natural herbs that kills or stop the formation of parasites in and on your body (morgellon's disease). There are many different gall nuts that's why there are different forms of this disease. If you study the different types you will find that these nuts produce the tannin that kills the symptoms that works relief for you. Funny how the CDC was not aware of this disease and there is no cure for it. That is because the cures are the natural herbs and the drug companies don't consider natural products medicine. Examples of this is alum (found in arid extra dry), black walnut hull (kills parasites) tea tree oil (astringent), cedar and pine trees there are many more. Mainly whatever gives you release for morgellons have plant or tree that are stung by these parasites or insects. So the government studied and alter this process and made stronger versions of this and used it against parasites in water, on plants and so forth. So we drink the water and eat the plants and wear clothing that have been altered with this. Some of the nuts do not break down completely but are what is called "polymers" (sounds like cotton or fibers to me). The nuts look exactly like the cyst that many people suffer with. The glucose in the nut is what helps with the cystic formation. Gallnut tannin are used to make ink and used to emboss leather. How I see it is if you locate what symptoms you are having and connect it to a plant or tree tannin is being used you will be cured after a period of time on those herbs.

Will you please post this handling for Morgellon's which makes sufferers so miserable?
My nutritionist/chiropractor did muscle testing on me. I touched the worst Morgellon sore on my ankle and I tested positive for Olive Leaf extract (6 daily) and for Pantothenic Acid (also 6 daily). These are a very good remedy, not expensive and did the job in 3 days. I also put vitamin E directly on the sores. Such a relief! Olive Leaf extract is anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungual. - a 2000 year-old natural remedy. Check it out!

Am a long time sufferer of Morgellons, if they are in your ears try a dab of Peppermint oil on the outer ear, never put down in the ear and keep off your fingers, should you rub your eye it can sting badly, use Qtip or cotton ball, I also buy the Peppermint extract in the baking section and use a capful in my wash with the borax. Be very careful using Pantothenic Acid ( B 5 ) I may have done permenant damage to myself overdosing on it, research it first online and you will see that the body needs very little, and they sell it in high doses, high mg. It can cause wheezing and shortness of breath, which if your lucky goes away, but you are left with tingling in the feet etc.Cats Claw needs to be researched well also, we all want to get well , but self medicating can be lethal be careful and if possible talk to a doctor about doses of anything your not sure of. Mentholated body powders are a great help on the sheets in order to sleep, they do not like it ! God Bless and remember to share safe remedies.

Hello my name is Matthew I have had Morgellions for 2yrs. My story is identical to the hundreds u have probably read by now online and in the news. I have tried numerous home remedies and RX medicines mostly topical in nature with not much success. To make matters worse at least mentally I live 6 miles from Lake Mary, Florida where the "DISEASE" was named. I have stumbled upon something I thought it necessary to announce as a huge victory in the fight to a cure to this GOD AWFUL PLAGUE. These things we feel are real and I can make them show them selves at will.
The most important I have been working on a regiment to wipe them off and out of my body. Petroleum Jelly is my recommendation for all who suffer. The first step is to basically saturate your body similar to frosting a cake. Second wait 10 minutes and the magic starts to happen I had 100,000 of small things race out of my skin in order to escape certain death through lack of oxygen (this is my theory at least). I have tried this harmless remedy on my 2 children as well as 3 friends who suffer with absolutely success. PLEASE TRY THIS YOU WILL FEEL LIKE A NEW PERSON. let me know how this works and with any luck we can put and end to our suffering and stick it to the CDC the founders of GRID and cigarets that don't cause cancer untill 1990's.

Seems we have lots of skin conditions going around....another SILENT EPIDEMIC happening is Morgellons.... The CDC has been warned by the ones infected (NOT the doctors???) something serious was happening to the people and they have done NOTHING to help us....
My husband was infected 13 years ago 1993 the chemical plant he worked for introduced NANO sized microbes into the waste water treatment plant to cleanup the sludge in the waste water.....near Freepport, Texas one of the hot spots for this disease...imagine that!!
There were NO SAFETY PROCEDURES in place for the maintenance/mechanical workers working around these microbes and working on the equipment needed for the open pit digestros and blowers....
After finding out from media information May 2006, we did our own people research and when we located several co-workers from my husband's crew were all sickened with Morgellons symptoms....and quite a list of symptoms I might add....Morgellons symptoms for your review....
Since then my husband being infected from his job site has now infected me and our pets and WE have infected other family members and close contact co-workers and friends....once infected you CAN infect others....this is an infectious disease.
These NANO sized microbes and there were 5-6 different parasites and bacteria MANipulated to do a job.....so we believe there are different varities of Morgellons just depends on what microbes you came into contact with as each batch was designed for that particular sludge in that wastewater plant....so different wastewater treatment plants have different recipes of microbes....and these same microbes have been used for oil and chemical spills and other types of environmental issues and also in pesticides...the real kicker is these NANO sized microbes have been used for 25-30 years now and all I see is disease....disease in humans, pets, wildlife and plants....anthing that comes into contact with these microbes becomes infected....in fact Morgellons is killing our cold blooded animals at an alarming rate.....and has been reported in many pets like cats, dogs, horses and is being considered as a major player in the BEE CRISIS we are experiencing across the country....and is responsible for the disappearance of frogs across the country....and we believe is responsible for the dead zones in our oceans and the cause of much of the mass wildlife deaths recently growing in the past few years....
In one year the number of registered households has risen.....March, 2006 - 1,250-1,200 to 9,592 March, 2007..... this is households.....the number for indiviuals is that much higher.....many many households report the whole family infected including their pets....many still do not know of Morgellons or do and are in denial, or misdiagnosed into other categories depending on symptoms so this count is mild compared to the real count that is out there.....
This disease creates skin rashes and lesions that can spread easily if scratched and opened and take sometimes years to heal....no one is immune from this disease it is reported in people 0-100 years old and in 15 nations and growing.....
This disease takes time and time it has had.....25-30 years of MANipulating microbes (parasites and bacteria) and setting them free across this great land of ours....and now they have had time to reproduce in our environment and once infected you can now infect others....
I suggest you familiarize yourself with a disease that will become a household name very soon....called Morgellons....
I call this the BLUNDER OF THE CENTURY...
This disease is very real and spreading like wildfire....

Morgellons: To all the sufferers of this parasite, I, too have suffered for 7 years. I was lucky, as l caught it from my mother, who had sent off a sample to the University of Texas entomology dept.and found out it is definitely a red chicken mite. If you research mites, you find they have 4 stages, egg, larva, larva molt, adult. The larva is white and soft bodied. the larva molt is a little firmer and white and does the crawling, while the adult mite is white(unless it has fed) and hard like a speck of salt. That explains some of the confusion people are having over what they are fighting. Many insects have several stages to reach adulthood. The eggs are laid under the skin. Almost impossible to see except on darker clothing, or in bright sunlight as they are less than a speck of pepper in size. These mites live in the pores of your skin, lay eggs every 5-7 days, and the eggs hatch out in 3-4 days. And they are longer-lived than the scabies mite, some of them surviving as long as 9 months without a blood meal. The icky part is that as the females eat their way onto your skin to lay eggs, poop collects in their tunnels that they use to travel (yes they poop), hence the black, blue, and green "fibers". An entomologist can help you with info. They create a nest where they live and breed, hence the pimple-like appearance. There is much good info online about mite life cycles, and also, birdmites.org is helpful to learn what you are battling.

A new research article in the scholarly journal, BMC Dermatology, has found the presence of Borrelia spirochetes, the organism responsible for Lyme Disease in 24 of the 25 Morgellons patients included in the study. The study proves that the fibers are not cellulose as previously stated by the less than rigorous study conducted by the CDC and Kaiser. Rather, they are composed of keratin and collagen from an overproduction of fibroblasts and keratinocytes in the epithelial cells located in the "deeper layers of the epidermis and root sheath of hair follicles " The fibers demonstrate the same appearance: nucleated at the base, composed of collagen, and blue in color due to the production and presence of melanin pigment.
This study offers hope to people suffering with Morgellons disease who are often mistreated by the medical community and dismissed as a patients with a purely psychological condition called Delusional Parasitosis. Hopefully, a larger scale study will replicate the results of this small, yet extremely important, study so that the people with Morgellons disease can finally get the proper medical treatment they desperately deserve for a condition now proven to have a somatic cause, rather than a purely psychiatric cause.
The following article is taken from http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-5945/15/1
Here is the title -
Exploring the association between Morgellons disease and Lyme disease: identification of Borrelia burgdorferi in Morgellons disease patients.
Marianne J Middelveen1, Cheryl Bandoski2, Jennie Burke3, Eva Sapi2, Katherine R Filush2, Yean Wang3, Agustin Franco3, Peter J Mayne1 and Raphael B Stricker14*
Morgellons disease (MD) is a complex skin disorder characterized by ulcerating lesions that have protruding or embedded filaments. Many clinicians refer to this condition as delusional parasitosis or delusional infestation and consider the filaments to be introduced textile fibers. In contrast, recent studies indicate that MD is a true somatic illness associated with tickborne infection, that the filaments are keratin and collagen in composition and that they result from proliferation and activation of keratinocytes and fibroblasts in the skin. Previously, spirochetes have been detected in the dermatological specimens from four MD patients, thus providing evidence of an infectious process.
Methods & Results
Based on culture, histology, immunohistochemistry, electron microscopy and molecular testing, we present corroborating evidence of spirochetal infection in a larger group of 25 MD patients. Irrespective of Lyme serological reactivity, all patients in our study group demonstrated histological evidence of epithelial spirochetal infection. Strength of evidence based on other testing varied among patients. Spirochetes identified as Borrelia strains by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and/or in-situ DNA hybridization were detected in 24/25 of our study patients. Skin cultures containing Borrelia spirochetes were obtained from four patients, thus demonstrating that the organisms present in dermatological specimens were viable. Spirochetes identified by PCR as Borrelia burgdorferi were cultured from blood in seven patients and from vaginal secretions in three patients, demonstrating systemic infection. Based on these observations, a clinical classification system for MD is proposed.
***Our study using multiple detection methods confirms that MD is a true somatic illness associated with Borrelia spirochetes that cause Lyme disease. ***
Further studies are needed to determine the optimal treatment for this spirochete-associated dermopathy.
EC: Very interesting!
