Hi--does anyone have any ideas? For the last couple of years, my husband, my son (early 20s) and I have had multiple health issues, but recently my son's health has become much worse. He is suffering from a very bad anxiety disorder and so far has not responded very well to traditional drugs. At the moment, I cannot imagine a straight withdrawal from these drugs (lithium, zyprexa)--so please don't suggest that, but I am wondering if there might be something else going on. All three of us have lost weight that might best be described as looking like we have very little body fat and very strangely, all of us seem to have lost pinkish facial/skin color. We all look quite pale, even in the middle of a recent Colorado summer. My husband and I, at least, eat quite healthily (and so I am doubtful this is entirely due to some nutritional deficiency) and we have always loved being outdoors. In addition, our nails are very brittle. Any thoughts/ideas are welcome--thank you so much for looking!

I would like to address my post to Ted, or anyone else in our situation! My husband has been ill for several yrs, can hardly walk, has now developed slightly slurred speech, has been to many neurologists, ALS was just recently ruled out, currently seeing a Dr.who suspects one of the Cerebellar Ataxias. He has an Aunt & Uncle on his father's side that passed away from an unknown neurological disease. Possible Ataxia. We are scared to death, he has already been tested by Athena lab, & came back negative, however we were told there are new genes currently being added, he may still have it? He will soon undergo a brain pet scan. Is there any treatment he can possibly try?

They have found a spot in this kidney, his liver emzines were slightly elevated. All labs for every STD. Diese have come back neg. Twice. He is not on drugs not a drug user, but did have a girl friend that he found out that she has had a lot of partners, that why he has been tested ttwice, he has been so worried about a STD or worse, but nothing has appeared. Now his lymph notes in his body are swollen, neck armpits, throat, , , his body aches, and he tells me that he really dont feel well. The doctor, his prymary said,
He dont know what eles to do. So kevin's spleen is still swollen and hurts him and he has had diarrhea for a year also. Could you offer any ideas of something to do. Also his new wife is now having alot of the same systoms and my son is worried that what he has that he has given something to her, he has spoke to his doctor and they dont hear him. My son is a avid snowboarder, asst. Mngr. of colorado ski and golf. He was really healthy 35 yrs old. He says that he dont have much appetite anymore. He said he is going downhill health wise. Please any idea?

Contaminated Bone Graft and esulting Aggressive Illness
I hope that this reaches someone as I am in desperate need of advice and have nowhere to turn.
I have been following Ted's recovery and hope he is doing much better.
My problem is very unusual, at least I have never found anyone else with my symptoms. Some of it is the same as other's with Lyme disease, Morgellons, but the rest is not. To make a very long story short, In approximately 2012, the hair-like threads that had been growing through my skin, especially my neck, since about 2008, were identified as Nylon 54. A toxicologist told me I have had multiple exposures, but the nylon threads came from a bone graft that was used after a tooth extraction. These threads when visible at the surface, are machine-like, always equal spacing between each stitch. The bone graft disappeared from the tooth socket and migrated elsewhere. Some of the graft was found in my mouth and was identified as part of the missing graft. That is how it was found and analyzed. It was then that I was told it was cadaver and had come from an 80 year old Japanese male. This was also the same time when Borrelia Burgdorrfi was found, which at the time, I did not know was Lyme disease. There were also many other bacteria found in this and other samples taken from my mouth at that same time.
Over the years I have sought medical help, too many times to count, spent every dime I had and got nowhere. I did recently (March 2018) have 29 days of IV Rocephin, which I feel just made me worse and seemed accelerate my symptoms. To this date I still continue to just watch this “disease”progress and I am in such an advanced stage I don't know if I will survive one more winter, unless my miracle arrives.
I wish there were a check-off list for symptoms, because, I hardly have the energy to even type and it is too painful to sit here much longer. The worst parts have been the nylon threads that have morphed into thicker, hardening strands that are twisted and wrapped around my throat. Some are loops that intertwine and lock into each other. These are caught up in a net-like fiber that have hook ends. I can feel tiny disc shaped things and corkscrew shapes just beneath the surface of my skin. The threads cut into my throat and I feel like I am being strangled. One of these “things” came out of my neck and was also sent to be analyzed. There are photos and reports on this stuff, if anyone is interested in looking at them.These things release some kind of chemical that cause the most horrific anxiety (the word does not do it justice), that if you cannot find a way to stop it, dying starts to look like a much needed vacation. But, I don't want to die, I want to live, but free of this horrific nightmare that never ends. It is wrapped around all my extremities and is cutting off my circulation and now carving channels into my skin. It attacked my heart and I now have a pacemaker. I was told the damage was caused by a “ virus”. I have lost all of my upper molars, I can feel the thread wrapped around the top of my teeth. I had beautiful teeth.
I am 61, have lost so many years... My weight, most of my adult life was about 155, I am appx 5'5”, I now I weigh 112. I cannot absorb anything I eat and I do eat enough. It has the characteristics of a parasite, is always active at night and has infected my digestive system. I am extremely sensitive to electromagnetic fields.
My skin hangs on my arms and is rifled with the nylon. I look emaciated and compared to just 5 years ago, I look like I have aged 20 years. I have lost (or so I thought) patches of my hair, mostly in the front.. What I found was that my hair was growing inward under my scalp and down into my neck. It wraps around my ears and grows down into my neck from there. The threads are wrapped around each upper and lower eyelid and are coiled up under the upper eyelid. They have on several occasions grown into my eyes. The pain is excruciating..
There is a bright white fibrous material that has grown everywhere. It has twisted my spine. And is hardening inside my neck. How can a person be this ill, but no conventional doctor can see it. Neither can any type of imaging. I have not been treated very well by the medical establishment.
I see these same fibers in my husbands skin, but he has very nice skin, not dry like mine, so it is not as noticeable. His back has a herniated disc, L3, he has developed renal disease, and is in excruciating pain. He is 65 and was in very good health his entire life, up until about 2 years ago. I try to tell him it is probably the same or similar to my problem, at least some of it, but he is in denial. He has lost over 30 pounds.
This stuff sometimes shows up in photographs, but not in bright light, to the naked eye.
Both my husband and I are in serious trouble. Our dog is infected, too. To be in such a position, is, well, unheard of. I never imagined being so seriously ill and not have anyone to turn to.
I have no idea whether Ted has recovered and is answering emails. I was sure he would know what to do.
I have been following Ted's protocols for Lyme, Lupus, Morgellons, systemic fungus, for about 3 mos. I will be adding the Myristin, today, maybe that will make the difference. I have not seen any improvement, as of yet. That is why I am reaching out, hoping someone can advise me.
What I am currently taking:
ACV Baking Soda 2X Day
Vitamin B Complex
Vitamin B3 Niacinamide
Serrapeptase 60,000 units 3 X day
Compounded hormone cream
Diatomaceous Earth 1 TB every day
Borax â…› tsp with 1 capful H2o2 in a liter of water each day
Tetrasodium EDTA, in 1 pint of water, I take 20 drops 3 X Day and use it for soap
*I am not taking the Methylene Blue 0.1%, as I take medications that will interact with it. I understand it is an MAOI Inhibitor, correct? Is there a substitute that is not?
I take a BP med because of pacemaker, a beta blocker and an opiod pain med for a back injury, (very little).
I also take a medication for ADD, that I am in process of weaning off, along with the pain medication.
I have access to a FIR Sauna, and hopefully soon to a salt water hot tub or a jaquzzi. Will these things help? Would laser remove it?
Would Nystatin be good?
Is there a correct dosage I should take of Myristin. I just received it in the mail today.
Is there any type of imaging that can “see” this stuff?
Thank You for any hope you may have to offer. Kim
Sick for over 11 days
I have heartburn and extends to my back. And upset tummy and nausea. I have no appetite and I'm not sleeping well due to pain. Nothing I do makes me feel better. I have been to the doctor's for a CT scan, ECG, lots of blood work, scope, and an ultrasound. My gallbladder is inflamed a little just not enough to take it out, my white blood cells are low and I have low blood pressure. The doctors state they don't know what's wrong. Please help.

I know this is strange, but when I lay down in bed, the bottoms of my feet start feeling hard (in my mind). Actually they are not. (daughter tested them) I move the least little bit and it stops. I can't get a good night's sleep. Any suggestions ?
Dear friends! I really need your help! My mum has suffered from extreme acid in her mouth, followed by backpain and feeling of pulsating and painful stomach ulcer. According to gastroscopy, there are no ulcers, but she suffers and the butchers keep giving her more anti-acids. What could this be? She has suffered a heart attack and is on a lot of medications that she does not plan to stop, but due to back pain and palpitations, she gets scared for her life every time.. Please help, what is this, and how do I help her?
Burning, red face
I need help diagnosing a problem my husband has been having on and off for the last 3 months. The skin around his lips and on his cheeks is bright red and the burning is VERY intense. He is olive skinned, but it looks like he has a terrible sunburn. Now it has become very dry and the skin is peeling off. His cheeks are somewhat swollen, too. At first we suspected he needed to detox and he has been taking herbs for that, but the condition keeps getting worse. He did see a doctor who did some bloodwork and an ultrasound on his abdomen and everything checked out fine. We are desperate for any ideas. It doesn't look anything like rosacea, but after doing an internet search, I can find nothing similar to what he has. We are living in a foreign country and I don't have a whole lot of faith in the doctors being able to diagnose this. Any ideas would be appreciated!

I am a 22 year old male, weighing in at an alarming 130 lbs. I have lost about 25 pounds of weight over the course of two (2) years, not trying. Luke
I woke up this morning to find that the whole bottom of my face, chin and cheeks, are numb and swollen. My right ear is ringing and loud noise makes it ringing loud and makes my head pound. I have no pain in my ear but I can tell that it is plugged up and I can't hear very well out of it. This just happened in the 2 hours I fell asleep. The numbness is starting to spread down my neck and to my shoulders. What can this be??

Hi my name is Mr. Kelly, Here is my problem in a nutshell. My neurotransmitters misfire. I am unsure what my levels of Serotonin and dopamine are to be in my body, but if there is misfiring going on I'll bet their out of whack. Folic acid, also called folate, is a B vitamin that is often deficient in me. The last time I was in the hospital vitamin B was way down. Also magnesium is needed for serotonin production. So I'm willing to bet it is low too. To add to things my doctor also told me my testosterone was way to high. Should I ask for a blood test to see what is what. Where to begin, and what to do is the question. I want to get off all these depression and anxiety drugs. Mr. Kelly
