What Morgellons Disease Is or Isn't & What Role do Co-Factors Play? Jan 1, 2023


I first published this update about two years ago, a couple times since then, and thought it good to update and post again - particularly for those new to our group. I'm taking advantage of my extensive communications with thousands of Morgellons sufferers over the years.

Many people send me pictures and ask me if they have Morgellons disease based on the pictures they send me. First of all I do not diagnose and even if I could, I've come to realize that it’s safe to say that there are no two Morgellons sufferers with exactly the same symptoms. According to Dr. Savely in her book, "Morgellons: The Legitimization of a Disease," Morgellons is characterized by growth of filaments from one's skin or from the lesions. But no two individuals even have the same size, colors and lengths of filaments. Filaments can be microscopic in size to large thick filaments. And some report that the filaments move and others don't.

Below are pictures of one way that Morgellons starts and develops into a lesion.


  Morgellons can start looking somewhat like psoriasis and if not dealt with progress to an ulceration as shown below within hours.

If dealt with within hours using our NGG Skin Lotion or any of our NG products completely gets rid of this within two to three days.

The lesion on the far left started out looking like the images above between the thumb and forefinger as shown and progressed to a full blown Morgellons lesion with filaments. This all happened within 12 hours.

Fortunately, using the Deep Wound Lesion Kit got rid of the lesion within days and kept Morgellons from becoming systemic.
The image of the bow tie Morgellons filament on the left defies explanation. Less than an inch wide. I've only seen one other image of this.  

So, in addition to various size, thickness, and color of filaments, some have white or black goo, many have none, Some have non healing lesions and some have none. Many have bumps on their skin (Purgio nodularis) but not everyone. Some have aches, pains, and fibromyalgia and some don't. Some also report having sparkles all over their skin, many don't. Some have stomach and intestinal issues and many don't. Some have issues with their teeth and mouth and many don't. Some are paranoid and exhibit bi-polar symptoms, most don't. Many have brain fog, some don't. Some have disfiguring lesions on their face, most don't. Some have rashes that vary in size, color, location, and intensity, and most don't. Many have brain fog, some don't. Most have intense itching, and some don't. Most experience feeling of being bitten, some don't. Some have burning skin, others don't. Some have intense scalp issues, others don't.

Some have hives near the anus and most don't. And the list goes on and gets more complicated because everyone has more than one of the symptoms listed in addition to the strange filaments.

Who in the world could possibly believe there's an easy solution? This is mind boggling. And generally, those investigating Morgellons only look at the filaments and lesions as the culprit and what's worse is that they get pigeon holed as explained in the summary.

What might explain all these different symptoms? Co-factors explain everything. In fact, from my experience, Morgellons is not a big problem, it's because Morgellons seems to provide a fertile environment for many co-factors, which (by themselves may not ever be an issue or have been dormant for years), create a perfect storm to destroy one's health.

Over the years, I've become aware of many predominate co-factors and they also differ from sufferer to sufferer. But, when the co-factor/s are dealt with, Morgellons falls off the wall like Humpty Dumpty. So, while pictures might show strange gelatinous organisms often associated with Morgellons, the pictures don't show Collembola, skin fungus, Candida Albicans, mites, and so on. 

Lyme Disease: A pilot study research done by Midevehann and Strickler finds 90% of Morgellons afflicted people have one or more variations of spirochetes, but not 100%. Read “The Charles E. Holman Morgellons Disease Foundation Announces A New Study That Strengthens Association Between Tickborne Infections And Morgellons Disease” 12/9/18 published 12/9/19 [9] But, who selected the participants and did they suspect from symptomatology that Lyme disease was a possibility? Personally, I do not believe that 90% of Morgellons sufferers have Lyme disease. Maybe 40 or 50% would be my guess.
Some experts claim syphilis is involved. But that's a small percentage - maybe less than 5%.
Dr. Bransfield claims Chlamydia (not the sexual version) is often a co-factor.

Fundal issues on the other hand are far more prevalent. I estimate 90% have one several types of fungal issues - skin fungus, candida albicans, blastomycosis, and the list is endless. And the degree to which fungal organisms are a serious issue varies from person to person.
100%, according to Dr Davidson (parasitologist in NJ) have intestinal parasites such as pin, hook, round (Toxocariasis), flat and tape worms. They can be dormant for years and become an issue when Morgellons comes into play.
Leaky Gut Syndrome (I'd guess about 20% are dealing with Leaky Gut):
    Intestinal parasites know as nematodes, helmiths get into the blood stream where they make way through the intestinal lining into the blood stream, that becomes another serious issue as they get into their throat, ears, and head joints, organs, under the skin causing inflammation.

    Candida Albicans passes through the intestinal lining and can take up residence in any organ (including the brain and the skin) where it's convereted into a more dangerous hydra tenacle fungal organism.
Slime mold for a small percentage usually from backed up sewers.
Moldy environment for about 20%.
Some believe Morgellons is an insect of some type, it is not. Morgellons can parasitize insects, but it is not an insect. And these DNA modified organisms live and breed under the skin erupting from the skin time to time.
Some believe Morgellons is an organism that can eat wood, concrete, ceramics, metal and so on as reported in one website? While this phenomenon may be reported in some instances. Morgellons is not such an organism and the actual organisms responsible for such behaviour are unknown but they do it by releasing an enzyme capable of dissolving concrete, counter tops, metal, and so on.

A small percentage are dealing with Myiasis - infection with a fly or midge larva, usually occurring in tropical and subtropical areas. I'd guess less than 5%.
Others are dealing with Filariasis - a tropical disease caused by the presence of filarial worm. Again less than 2 or 3%.
Heavy metal toxicity is an issue with 90% or more (amalgum filings).
One lady found that she had Mansonella Perstans - a vector-borne human filarial nematode, transmitted by tiny blood-sucking flies called midges.
Then there is protozoan like Babesia that complicates Lyme disease.
Amoebas that can complicate things and be life threatening. - Entamoeba histolytica.
Bartonello - bacteria that live primarily inside the lining of the blood vessels often associated with Lyme disease.
Sporotrichosis - Rose Gardner's disease caused by a fungus called Sporothrix. Less than 5% is my guess.

Dermatitis herpetiformus affects one out of five with cceliac disease. Easily mistaken for skin mite infection and is treated with Dapsone
Rare bacterial infestation of skin causing enlargement of affected areas treated by Metronidazole gel (diagnosis unknown)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus Aureus, and Citrobacter Koseri are common forms of bacterial infections that often are harmless. Less than 5%.
Cytomegalovirus affects eyes, lungs, liver, esophagus, stomach, intestines and brain.
Schistosomiasis - generally not found in the US - caused by parasitic flat worms with a life cycle in certain species of snails.
Tape Worms

Cellulitis - Swollen painful skin from streptococcus or staphylococcus.
Thorny headed worm for which there is no known cure.
And the list goes on and on. Fortunately, our protocol handles most of these co-factors, but not all. For instance, the lady with Mansonella Perstans was fortunate to find a doctor who knew about the having tests done for weird organisms and had it done whereas most doctors are ignorant about testing for most, if not all, of these parasites.

Even parasites like Onchocerciasis, also known as river blindness could be a co-factor but as of this writing, I haven't heard of anyone being diagnosed with it. Then there are sand fleas, the cloth mite, Strepsiptera, and so on. Get the picture?

From questionnaires I receive it appears that:
80 to 90% are dealing with Morgellons.

90% are dealing with Collembola.
90 to 100% are dealing with mites of some kind.
70% are dealing with skin fungus (red burning skin)
50% have bumps in their skin (Purgio Nodularis) - Itchy nodules
Many are dealing with bio films on the skin or internal
Maybe 10 to 15% are dealing with Stronglyoides

So, it's very common that each sufferer is dealing with two or more of the above organisms.

And let's not forget the complication paranoia and bipolar bring to this table. Paranoia to the pont that aliens are giving us Morgellons, or the terrible neighbor next door is doing it, or birds are following them and shedding organisms on them.

Every time I look at this list to share, I update it with another one or two co-factors that I learn about.

Unfortunately, the access to medical test for most of these co-factors is non-existent and as noted before, many (not all) of these co-factors are often not an issue until Morgellons comes on the scene and then all hell breaks loose - the perfect storm.

What I also know is that many have written me with various claims of cures:
Some have told me that lufenuron cured them.
Some say the Morgellons aka King Diet cured them.
Some say Ketanazole cream cured them.
One claimed that drinking baking soda cured them
Some claim fen ben cured them.
Some claim a cocktail of essential oils reported by Johns Hopkins  for dealing with Lyme disease cured them.
What is Morgellons Disease? Some claim SSKI (super saturated Potassium Iodide) cured them - sporotrichosis would be the co-factor.
And if syphilis is the issue, then penicillin might cure them.
  Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus Aureus, and Citrobacter Koseri may be successfully dealt with our Garcillin natural antibiotic.
And the list goes on and on.

Truth is that none of the above or anything actually cures Morgellons. For instance, lufenuron, Ketanazole cream, and anti fungals handle the fungal issues and Morgellons falls.

Fen ben doesn't cure Morgellons, but when intestinal parasites and those that migrate to other areas of the body are gotten rid of, Morgellons may fall.

Our approach using the Morgellons aka King Diet and the Pack of Life supplements builds health and immune functioning often making Lyme disease a non-issue and Morgellons falls.

In summary, you diminish Morgellons by taking away the co-factors that make it the "perfect storm," to destroy one's health. And we have found the first step to do that is making the King Diet work followed by attacking the co-factors per recommendations in my protocol. Unfortunately, not all the co-factors have been identified. For instance, the lady with Mansonella Perstans was fortunate enough to have a doctor that knew about strange organisms and had a resource to have tests done and analyzed. According to her treatment is Doxycycline for 6 to 8 weeks followed up with one dose of Ivermectin 12mg and 1000 mg of Albendenzole. Most doctors simply dismiss the possibility of these organisms infecting us.

What is disconcerting is that it seems that everyone who works with Morgellons Disease gets pigeon holed. The Charles Holman Association and physicians like Dr Savely typically treat Morgellons as Lyme disease. They treat it with long term antibiotics. But long term antibiotics can destroy gut flora and epitherial cellsin the gut as well untimately destroying one's ability to digest food. Plus the results of one study they published indicates that out of 12 participantes in the study, only one became symptom free. Others either relapased or never gained any benefit.

A post on facebook by Michael Chapella claiming myisas is the issue, "Leland Stanford University is responsible for your lesions, the Fruit Flies that grow in your body. A fruit fly hormone has been inserted in your body programmed to cause your body to create pregnant Fruit Flies that deliver eggs, eggs turn to Larvae, to pupa, to maggots to flies to lesions, when they fly out of your body. Call them, tell them you’re not happy with the work they did and you want to know how to turn off the ecdysone switch so your body stops looking like a fly trap, don't be kind don't be sweet and ask if they have insurance. 605 723 2300

Oh right, Mimosa Pudica will kill the fly larvae as soon as it hits your blood stream. I have been posting this once a week since last July."

Another youtuber with a channel about Morgellons, claims is about spirochetes (Lyme and often times Syphilis).

Dr Amin claimed it was mainly about mercury toxicity from your filings.

Dr. Karjoo (no longer in practice) claimed it was about silica.

Many on youtube claim is fungal.

Seems like everyone has their pet theory about what causes Morgellons. 

Not to confuse you, but often times Morgellons sufferers are dealing with gut issues and herbicides like Round Up (also patented as an antibiotic) get into our food supply which means organic is better than non organic. 

And then we have EMF issues. Some, not all, are more sensitive to EMF and find their organisms more active around higher EMF levels. 

I compare Morgellons to the King on the chess board – the most important piece but not the most powerful. Protecting the King are the pawns, bishops, rooks, knights and the Queen. Once those pieces are defeated, the King falls and the game is over and so too is Morgellons.
