I was directed to this article by Sidney and I highly recommend that all of you read it. It is the most complete analysis of the Morgellons of the past (1500’s and 1600’s) that I have seen. Terrific article Joe. I have two main thoughts right now having read the article (which I will re-read again later today – it’s that good).
- It seems that Joe did a lot of work and research concerning the old accounts of Morgellons and I am absolutely astounded that in the none of the medical literature can be found the mention of “Skin Crawling or Biting Sensations”. Also, Morgellons was found almost primarily in infants and young children and occasionally women. I am reeling from these two observations right now and seriously questioning whether Morgellons of the past is our Morgellons. I have very serious questions as to how our crawling and biting sensations, which are among the most bothersome symptoms, were never mentioned in 200 years of medical history?
- While reeling from the first part of Joe’s article the second part did seem to explain how part one above can be true. Joe connects Morgellons (of the past) to Mercury contamination and explains why infants, children and women were more likely to be exposed. Joe is or rather “was” a Morgellons sufferer who was helped by Dr. Amin, someone I have quoted often on my blog. Dr. Amin works with what he calls Neurocutaneous Syndrome (NCS) which I have also written about. The interesting thing about the mercury aspect is that I grind my teeth at night (I need to go back to using my byte guard again) and that would no doubt release quite a bit of mercury as I have mercury fillings. I wonder if that is why NAC is helping me so much. I still have doubts about mercury and newer dental fillings being the cause of this however. But one cannot doubt that Joe’s better now and was helped by Detoxing. I wonder if Joe outlines his symptoms and his treatment anywhere?
So here is the article ==> Joe’s Morgellons/ Mercury Article
Please, read the article and offer me your thoughts on Joe’s blog post. I am extremely curious to know your thoughts as my original assumption was that Morgellons is caused by a toxic condition. I hope to see some comments on this post.
