Okay, the last post got me thinking about all this. I just want to bounce this off you and see what you guys think.
- Our bio-terrain totally crashes (more on that later)
- Our bodies become like catnip to some type of microscopic arthropod
- These arthropods shred our skin causing microscopic perforations (which could lead to lesions)
- The arthropods are the source of the biting and crawling sensations
- The perforations in our skin allows entry of various fungal spores and various forms of bacteria
- These opportunistic infections combined with our very bad terrain makes us very ill
Now, that’s a pretty simplistic explanation. However, often times a Morgellons patient is the only one that feels things in a room when by all accounts everyone should feeling it as well, but they do not. This could mean the problem is entirely internal, or it could mean there is something in the environment that is totally benign normally but for some reason is no longer benign for us, meaning it’s both external and internal.
Why mosquitoes prefer some to others
If you’re one of those people whom mosquitoes tend to favor, maybe it’s because you aren’t sufficiently stressed-out.
Insects have very keen powers of smell that direct them to their targets. But for researchers trying to figure out what attracts or repels the pests, sorting through the 300 to 400 distinct chemical odors that the human body produces has proved daunting.
Now scientists at Rothamsted Research in the U.K. have been making headway at understanding why some people can end up with dozens of bites after a backyard barbecue, while others remain unscathed.
The phenomenon that some people are more prone to mosquito bites than others is well documented. In the 1990s, chemist Ulrich Bernier, now at the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service, began looking for what he calls the "magic compounds" that attract mosquitoes. His research helped to show that mosquitoes are attracted to humans by blends of common chemicals such as carbon dioxide, released from the skin and by exhaling, and lactic acid, which is present on the skin, especially when we exercise.
Interesting, C02 and lactic acid, hmmm. My blood work (though I haven’t had it done in while) showed the max C02 level. And lactic acid, if you watched the “Doctor Rotcod – PH video’s” you know this what an acidic body is full of when food is not properly digested. And when I first discovered Morgellons and tested my PH it was 5.0 consistently. I was a literal acidic mess. By the way, stress had been a big part of my life leading up to Morgellons. Stress can make a body very acidic and your body uses magnesium to buffer that acid which causes magnesium loss.
Something, I believe has screwed up the gut so badly in a Morgellons sufferer that our skin is ringing the dinner bell which only makes things worse. If I am correct in that Morgellons comes first and then the arthropods, we are having sickness on top of sickness heaped upon us.
There is another possibility however. Something, other than a typical western diet and stress, has caused our bio-terrain to fail. If I had to guess, it is something being used in modern day GMO Pharming (Pharmaceutical Farming) that not only survives in man but thrives in certain individuals. I know I’m not offering anything new here that you haven’t already considered.
From Natural News on PH
The basic chemistry of pH balance
Back in high school chemistry, we learned about pH: acids had low numbers, alkalines had high numbers, and a pH of 7.0 was neutral. And it all meant absolutely nothing in terms of day-to-day life.
It now turns out that we have a better shot at long-term health if our body’s pH is neutral or slightly alkaline. When we tilt toward greater acidity, which can be measured easily, we have a greater risk of developing osteoporosis, weak muscles, heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, and a host of other health problems.
The solution, according to scientists who have researched "chronic low-grade metabolic acidosis," is eating a diet that yields more alkaline and less acid. Just what kind of diet is that? One that’s high in fruits and vegetables. That might not seem like a big surprise, except for a few unexpected twists and turns.
Acid-yielding foods deplete minerals
If the idea of balancing acid and alkaline foods seems a bit off the wall, it does have a somewhat checkered past. Most people, including physicians, aren’t familiar with the dangers of acidosis, except in the most extreme situations. Those include lactic acidosis, from overexercise; ketoacidosis, when diabetes start burning their own fat; and renal acidosis, which can be a sign of kidney failure.
The original scientific research on acid-yielding and alkaline-yielding foods dates back to 1914 and was remarkably accurate, according to Loren Cordain, Ph.D., a professor and researcher in the department of health and exercise science at Colorado State University, Fort Collins. Then, in the 1930s and 1940s, the acid-alkaline concept was hijacked by early health food "nuts." Among them, William Hay, M.D., proposed an almost ritualistic eating habit based on food acidity or alkalinity. Since then, most doctors have viewed any discussion of acid and alkaline diets with a skeptical eye.
But the problem with acid-producing eating habits is very real, contends Cordain, a leading expert on the Paleolithic, or Stone Age diet. "After digestion, all foods report to the kidneys as being either acidic or alkaline," he says. "The kidneys are responsible for fluid balance and maintaining a relatively neutral pH in the body."
That’s where things get interesting. When acid-yielding foods lower the body’s pH, the kidneys coordinate efforts to buffer that acidity. Bones release calcium and magnesium to reestablish alkalinity, and muscles are broken down to produce ammonia, which is strongly alkaline. By the time the response is all over, your bone minerals and broken down muscle get excreted in urine.
Long term, excess acidity leads to thinner bones and lower muscle mass, points out Anthony Sebastian, M.D., of the University of California, San Francisco. These problems are compounded by normal aging, which increases acidosis, bone loss, and muscle wasting. Along the way, calcium and magnesium losses can equate to deficiencies, with many ramifications. Both minerals play essential roles in bone formation and normal heart rhythm. Low magnesium levels can cause muscle cramps, arrhythmias, and anxiety.
Co-Authoring an Article
I’m going to co-author an article with someone who I think is very talented and a great writer and researcher. Our hope is that it will be out by the end of September. So I need to get busy on that. I think you guys will find it interesting.
