In our case, we (my fiancé’ and I ) had the symptoms and it seemed to have "spread" to family, acquaintances and friends. 7 people in all.
1. The acquaintance – must of "had it mild"? By spraying with cedar, using the ESP Botanical samples you gave and getting rid of 1 couch, she was cured of her symptoms and itching in 1 1/2 months time. (I also stopped making direct contact with her for 3 wks of that time to ensure she cleared up).
2. My fiancé’s friend at band practice – Must of also "had it mild". By spraying his house with cedar, sprayed the cat, used 1 of the ESP Botanical kits I bought and several of the samples you provided…He also became problem free & cured in about 3 months,
3. My fiancé’s brother (lives with mother) Finally admitted that he had it too (he had lied and denied the itching for 8 months last year… then finally got honest).. However, it is doubted that he "caught it after us and it is now thought that he had it before us and in fact spread it to us". So, it turns out he may have- in fact- been the EPICENTER and beginning of where all this came from! Sad that he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer at the beginning of this year and he had recently died in Aug ’09. We are wondering if having this condition played a part with him having cancer or the other way around - The cancer made him susceptible to "catch" this in the first place?
4. My fiancé’s mother. (Who’s house may have been the Epicenter) She is elderly (84) and complained of some symptoms for several months last spring but with Cedar fogging the house and general ongoing spraying as well as using some of the ESP Botanical kits. She says she doesn’t itch anymore. The carpets were recently ripped up and there was some mold in the walls and all this is currently being cleaned up and addressed.
5. My brother. Had it bad since November last year and throughout this year. He was given ESP kits, samples and protocol advice. Finally took the advice and started using protocols in April 09 – August 09 and experienced a wonderful 2 month reprieve (Sept & Oct) but then after visiting me at my house in November got some bites and is experiencing symptoms again? So – he is starting the VAXA over again and ESP kits… to try to eradicate it once more. He also dusts his carpets with diatomaceous earth (which he thinks is what made a difference when he got rid of it in Sept). More to be revealed on his progress - but its sad cause we wont be able to visit properly over the holidays like normal people because I don’t want to spread it to him anymore!
6. Me and fiancé’. We have never gotten rid of it entirely? but have had a reduction of most of the horrible symptoms (only when we keep the house vacuumed regularly, the dogs bathed and sprayed and weekly general spraying of cedar, using ESP soap etcetera and no sugar or sweets – which is very hard for me ). There is a serious relationship between this condition and sugar intake! I think we haven’t been cured because we keep going over to his mother’s house and we are having a hard time doing all that’s required in the protocol because we both work full time and over time and are caring for his 84yr old mother. My fiancé’ doesn’t have the symptoms as bad as I get them (intense itching at night and rash like reactions when I scratch the itch – I use Eucalyptus oil and cedar oil on my skin and that does the trick rather than scratch) during flare ups.
Thank you Trisha Springstead for letting me post this. It helps the community greatly to know what so many others are going through. I wish this family the best, and there are so many others out there going through this with no help at all. It is my strong belief that the vast majority of folks suffering are unaware of what they are up against, have never heard the term Morgellons, and have no help available to them.
Trisha you have helped so many, I am very glad I know you.
