This is going to be my last post for a while everyone. I have a lot going on right now. I run a Software Development company and am busy working on a new release, it’s thrilling and this release is our best work ever. However, before my respite I have a lot to say, including some criticism, some cynicism, praises for some, and finally some hope for fellow sufferers. You are the ones I truly care about. I am not a doctor, I want all readers to clearly understand this fact. By the way, this post got me banned from finding1cure … Let’s get started then.
To the Sufferer who is Ready to Come in out of the Rain;
You can get Better but You Need to Change your Thinking
First, almost everything I am about to say can be summed up by the 1 minute video above, and I am being serious here. I urge you to watch it before you continue reading. I say, there is no germ …
I was asked a question in an email by someone just the other day who I consider a dear friend. The question was about my previous blog post. The question was along the long the lines of “What do you mean by it, that they wont find the cause of Morgellons?” And now having time to really think about my reply to her and corresponding with another trusted friend here are my thoughts on this question.
There is no cause; however, there is prevention and relief to be had. If our internal terrain is failing, lacking: minerals, vitamins, amino acids, PH, healthy gut flora, and oxygen and if we are not staying hydrated, eating nutritiously and strengthening positive emotions we then become prime target for disease. Of course, there is some catalyst, or vector probably a fungal element from GMO pharming or something, but it will not take hold in those with a strong terrain and we can all strengthen our terrain and become at least "symptom free", I hesitate to use the word cured. No living opportunistic invader will thrive in a well balanced terrain. This is why I say, at this point in time, there is no cause. What doctors are seeing at best, is the result, i.e., fungus, fibers, bacteria, bug infestations, whatever, which they then examine and study as the cause. This is why antiparasiticals and antibiotics will probably never rid anyone of this, but, instead will further damage their internal terrain. I believe following the pharmaceutical path leads one down a long road to destruction as is happening to folks on the LB forums far to often (many whom I love dearly though have never met). We don’t all have different causes, we all have different symptoms, the cause is the same, and healing, true healing (I believe) is on my terrain post.
Now many who cannot think beyond the rigid walls that confine them will immediately think I am saying Morgellons isn’t real, but that is far from the truth, it is real, serious, scary, and often horrifying. What I am trying to say is the current search for the cause is most likely never going to find it, because Western medicine rejects the possibility almost outright that the terrain fails first, then disease sets in. Our problem is not a weak immune system, the immune system merely kicks in when the terrain fails. Try not to read more into it than what I am saying here. I did not say that there are no pathogens at work. But I am saying they are not the cause, and when it comes down to it, they are insignificant to your battle plan.
You need to fix your Terrain, I have recommended to some that they try my Terrain advice and have received back some positive feedback. It’s not immediate, it’s gradual, the body can heal itself, but if you have degraded to the point that you have developed the Morgellons condition your body is indeed a complete wreck, but hardly beyond repair if you make the right moves. Antiparasiticals and antibiotics in my opinion, are not the right long term move. They have their place, don’t get me wrong, but if you truly want out of this mess you need a different approach.
If there is a single post on my blog everyone should read it is this post. It’s All About the Terrain and it has in large part lead to my being symptom free, no crawling, no bad skin, no pain, no fibro, it’s simply amazing. I even came down with Lyme Disease again after finding a tick on me fully engorged and two weeks of Doxycycline knocked it right out. There is a time for antibiotics and they worked effectively this time for me because my terrain was very strong. I was astounded because in 1992 I did two years of antibiotics for Lyme and never really ever got rid of it. I attribute my success this time to my terrain alone being completely hostile to disease of all kinds.
I cannot make any guarantees to you, but once I changed my thinking as shown in the “There is no spoon” video and threw everything out the window I thought I understood about disease, only then did I began to get better. And I continue to do so even now, three years after the onset of Morgellons, I am walking away from it.
First, I admit I have made many mistakes in my three years fighting Morgellons. I am by no means the holder of the truth, I want to make that clear. I was privy to an email by an Entomologist the other day who completely discounted some pretty solid evidence that was provided to him. His response was as follows:
How come the only scientists or medical professionals in the world who claim to have found parasites are staff members of the (name intentionally left out), and why is it that in OVER TEN YEARS spent promoting this "disease" they’ve never shown *any* of these supposed specimens to any *other* scientists or medical professionals? Surely they would want someone to confirm their findings?
Now, some of you reading know who said this, please do not post any names. I do not blame this Entomologist one bit. Despite all of the energy some have put into Morgellons research there has been little to no real scientific research put forth (until the recent report Morgellons disease, illuminating an undefined illness: a case series which I appreciated). Our researchers have failed. And worse yet, in large part they cannot be reached by those suffering and offer those suffering very little real advice on how to cope with Morgellons. I understand why they cannot offer help, because they haven’t a clue as to what Morgellons is. This isn’t my real compliant however.
My real complaint is the terrible infighting that is going on between groups and between individuals and we should all be ashamed. Many of you know what I am addressing here. There has been a lot of additional pain, and may I add, needless pain suffered by many. In fact, this infighting has delayed greatly our desired goal, the end of Morgellons. Day after day my blog is hit by those searching out names of people involved in Morgellons and from the additional keywords I can tell they are digging for more dirt. Others relish in the public humiliation of their enemies. They carry out their search and destroy tactics aimed at their supposed enemy camp not realizing they have lost site of their goal. What amazes me is that folks are still actually listening to them. Can somebody correct me if I’m wrong here. Aren’t we trying to end suffering for people who are going through a particular kind of hell that no one should ever go through? I have seen the emails from parents who have had Morgellons and watched thier children become effected by it. Enough already, put your energy into helping those who are suffering.
Based on what I believe to be true now I feel most of the current research will never yield fruit. This is because, as I have stated above, they are looking at the results of having Morgellons and studying them as if they are somehow the cause. But this will never, in my opinion, lead to anything remotely close to what I have managed to do, and that is become as near symptom free as one can be.
Most things we do or take serve only to mask symptoms until ultimately the final disease state takes your life. When my PH strip was consistently yellow or between 5.0 and 5.5 on the PH scale I bought something called Buffer PH and then it sat on my counter for weeks unopened. Why? Well, I knew it wasn’t the answer, my body was extremely acidic for a reason, I was lacking potassium and magnesium and these are vitally important for all of our bodies needs. When I developed heart palpitations (pretty bad ones) I was given Toprol (a beta blocker) and took it for two weeks and said “The hell with this, there is a reason this is happening”. To mask it over means years from now I might die of a heart attack or something. And so began my journey, having faith in myself to be able to read and understand research readily available to me on the web, and listen to others who have gone before me, and believe testimonials when they seemed based on sound reasoning. I knew my body, something was wrong, and it wasn’t a lack of Toprol or artificial PH Buffers. They would have only masked my symptoms. They might have made me feel better for a time, but my terrain all the while would be deteriorating until I wound up with cancer, or who knows what else.
So what am I saying? Stop the insanity, read my Terrain post, try it if it makes sense to you. The cause isn’t some bacteria, fungus, or parasite, it’s more fundamental than that, those are the result. And the good news is, you’re not just healing yourself of Morgellons, but all kinds of health issues, for instance, I have zero allergies now, no sore throats, sinus infections, and so on that used to plague me in the past …
I’m not going to name many names and will avoid naming any of the players in Morgellons who know I know they have done well. I would like to thank John Burgstiner, Founder and President of Logos Nutritionals, who has commented with some very sound advice on health and nutrition. He is not a Morgellons sufferer but has reached out to help us when so few would bother. To him is great reward. To Sidney and her incredible wealth of information regarding Collembola and this condition from way back, and to Jill for her blog post. And also Kathleen. I know I am leaving off many names here and am doing so by design. I mean no offense but am doing so to avoid what will only cause more controversy.
I’m going to take a break for a few months. I need a break from Morgellons and my software company is in the throws of a major release. A certain part of me now no longer wonders what Morgellons is because it doesn’t matter. The healing approach is the same that I would take now for any disease. Again, I encourage you to read my Terrain post and consider it. Do your own research and test if what I say makes sense.
I will probably pick up posting once fall begins.
