|Morgellons Disease Destroys 12/23/18|
Morgellons Disease--Is it Real or Not? If you ask if morgellons disease is real to most doctors, most doctors will either say its not real or that they don't know. If you ask if morgellons diseaseis real to someone suffering from it, there is no question as to the answer. Not that I'm wishing that doctors contract morgellons, but if there were more doctors suffering from it, they would not question its reality.
I contracted skin parasites in the mid 90's from a cloud of dust that decended upon me from pulling a vine from a tree in my back yard. Within four days I was itching all over my body and soon to follow there was a sensation of something biting through my skin. The doctor prescribed Elemite. I thought I was cured for about three days and then on the fourth the night mare if itching and biting skin started all over again. For a long time the only relief I could get was from near scalding baths. I also learned the importance of disinfecting my sorroundings to minimize reinfection.
I experimented with garlic and that helped for a while and desperation set in when the garlic stopped helping. Fortunately a friend suggested the possibility of a diet connection. I started eating only eggs and within hours the symptoms subsided. Over the cousre of a few years I discovered the foods that feed skin parasites and the foods that starve them and published the King Diet for sufferers of skin parasites. Around the turn of the century, the word, "morgellons" was coined. At first I thought that I was suffering from morgellons disease.
But as I began publishing a newsletter to other sufferers in time I realized that there are basically three skin parasites with some similar symptoms of extreme itching and biting: Morgellons, collembola, and strongyloides.
I published a book in 2006 titled Soothing the Itch Within and The Diet to Control It with what was known at the time for bathing, disinfection, diet, medications, and varioius techniques and doctors around the country who worked with morgellons' sufferers.
Even though I didn't have Morgellons, I did have collembola (spring tails) and Strongyloides (a nematode). The good news is that those with Morgellons reported that the King Diet worked well for them.
