It is common knowledge that the skin is the largest organ in the human body. It serves to protect the internal organs as well as regulate body temperature, protect against foreign invaders, contribute to sensory perceptions and detoxify the body. With all of these functions it is important to treat your skin well and have it functioning at peak performance.
Have you ever seen someone with amazing, beautiful, glowing skin? They look so healthy and radiant. More importantly they feel just as healthy and radiant. Beautiful skin directly correlates with a healthy body.
A healthy Liver, Kidney, Spleen, and Digestive system all contribute to your external appeal. Moreover, glowing skin means a greater resistance to Morgellons. No parasite, bug, or invader wants to try its hand at defeating healthy cells. It’s too much work to attack something with such a good defense system. Invaders would much rather prefer weakened cells. Louis Pasteur himself, one of the greatest proponents of Germ Theory, wrote on his death bed, “It’s the terrain, not the germ.” His intention? To discredit all of his life’s work? Or to finish it?
Being a Morgellons sufferer for over 3 years I will 100% have to agree with Pasteur’s dying statement.
It is the terrain, not the germ!
I’ll say it again.
It is the terrain, not the germ!
Morgellons affects the skin. There is no doubt about it. There is obviously something different about Morgellons sufferers. There is something wrong. We constantly attract a variety of parasites, bugs, and insects where normal, healthy individuals would not. It is unexplainable, but undeniable.
But why is this? Do we smell different? Are our cells weakened? Is our body weak? Or are we just genetically different to attract such invaders? All good questions, but questions I do not have the answer to. All I can do, with my limited scientific background, is make educated guesses and perform small sized experiments on myself and surroundings. That being said, I continue these experiments on a day to day basis and refine this work so that I can post my findings to this blog in hopes that one day someone with greater power than I may look at this and decide enough is enough, “The Morgellons Community needs help!”. But until that day, I am here. With you. Sharing my work, for the greater good.
What is it all about? Well, to be short, it all boils down to the very first paragraph. Having amazingly beautiful, radiant skin! And in doing so cutting down the presence of Morgellons and one’s susceptibility. But how to do so?
Let me enlighten you to the ways of self preservation and some anti-aging tricks I’ve picked up along the way. My battle with Morgellons has been relentless and real, yet is not without reward! Through my endless nights of research I’ve found little tips and tricks on improving my body’s ability to ward off disease and foreign invaders. In doing so, I have become significantly more healthy. My Morgellons has diminished ten fold and my energy levels have skyrockted. Slowly, I can see the affects of what little changes to diet and supplementing can do.
Remember…staying on top of the game pays dividends in the end.
So, what have I learned along the way…I’ve learned that there are a few key supplements that enhance your skins ability to detoxify, grow, and become as pristine as a baby’s! What’s the secret…for one diet change. Stick with natural ingredients that you can spell, pronounce, and distinguish its origin. I’m not going to elaborate on this subject due to the fact that it should be a no brainer. Let the food from the Earth be thy medicine!
Liver and Gallbladder Cleansing! I’ve already gone into detail about the Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Miracle Cleanse on this blog. But to conclude quickly; I did not see a change in my health or Morgellons until I started these cleanses. They have been a blessing and was only something I stumbled upon accidentally. Without a doubt, these cleanses have saved my life! I’ve flushed thousands upon thousands of stones from my Liver and Gallbladder allowing my body to slowly repair itself over time. Because of this my skin has become more and more radiant with each passing cleanse. It is truly remarkable the results I’ve seen, but let me tell you it did not come easy! The first 6 months of cleansing went by relatively easy, but shortly after I started getting copious amounts of stones out every cleanse. Each flush became harder and harder as my body entered a deep tissue detox. Every single one of my previous symptoms flared up for the next 6 months. During this time I continued to flush in good faith of what the book had told me. I trusted Andres Mortiz’s. And in doing so I began to see astonishing results around the 1 year mark. Each new flush after that gave me vitally and strength. I began to see the world in a beautiful shimmer. Not to mention Morgellons did not want anything to do with me…sadly though my environment remained infected. I believe anyone looking to cure themselves of any chronic disease, including Morgellons, cannot start the task…or in that case finish it until they have successfully rid themselves of ALL Liver and Gallbladder stones.
In conjunction with the Liver and Gallbladder Cleanse, I began to add basic skin fortifying supplements to my diet in hopes I might stumble upon something worth while. I began by perusing Amazon for 5-star supplements that were used to treat skin and hair conditions. My goal was to return my once beautiful glowing skin and thick, full hair back to its prime. Since the onset of Morgellons I have slowly seen my skin tone and hair thickness fade into dull, boring, and brittle. It hurt to see my looks go so quickly. By that time I knew something was not right. I had to try something. So I did…
To begin my skin rejuvenation I started with the sulfur compound Methylsulfonylmethane or MSM. MSM is a naturally occurring source of sulfur that is easily absorbed by the body. The skin, hair, and nails use this sulfur to produce keratin. Keratin is a family of fibrous structural proteins that is the key material making up the outer layer of human skin as well as hair and nails. By adding source sulfur to my body I allowed it to quickly and easily produce the keratin needed for continual production of new skin, hair, and nails. Within a few short weeks of using MSM I began to see a resemblance of glow emerging from my skin. I, also, noticed a few new hair sprouts blossoming from my scalp. I was sold! Along with my results, I read a few rave reviews and several articles listing MSM as a miracle, cure-all supplement. While I do believe MSM is extremely powerful, I do not think it is a cure-all. It did, however make me less prone to Morgellons outbreaks. The first week or so using Morgellons I noticed a huge uptick in Morgellons. My skin began crawling, biting, flicking so much so that I could not fathom why I was getting worse. Sure enough, however after that week my Morgellons suddenly dropped off. It was like everything disappeared. Often times elemental Sulfur is used to hinder and repel insects found in the environment, thus I believe the same is true for Morgellons and the human body. I’ve, also, read articles stating MSM working as an excellent natural mosquito repellant if taken in high doses for an extended period of time. Which ever way you spin it, I will continue to take MSM to help ward off any external predators seeking a new home or food source from my skin.
Also known as vitamin H or coenzyme R, Biotin or B7 is a very important for cell growth and the production of fatty acids. Biotin is often used to strengthen hair, nails, and skin which result from a body wide deficiency. Common symptoms of biotin deficiency are hair loss, dry skin, dry eyes, fatigue, insomnia, and depression. Because biotin is a crucial element for cell regeneration and growth it is important to provide the body with optimal levels, especially to a body in the presences of Morgellons. My original intent for this supplement was to boost scalp hair growth. I had noticed during my 2nd year with Morgellons that my hair slowly beginning to fade. Not receding by any means, but merely thinning. I attributed this to a deficiency of some sort. Thus research began. From that research I found Biotin. After reading, once again, several tens of 5 star review I was sold. Many people noticed a reversal of hair loss as well as beautiful glowing skin. It was part of the answer I was looking for. I wanted my old hair and skin back. I wanted my skin to glow and my hair to look thick and lushous. Biotin was by far very affordable. I started taking 1000mcg per day, in lieu of the mega doses. The mega doses seemed like too much B vitamin, 1000 mcg is more than enough at 333% of one’s daily value. Don’t worry though, like all B vitamins Biotin is a water soluble, any excess is easily excreted.
Collagen, the building block of mammalian connective tissue. Collagen is the most abundant protein found in mammals and composes from 25% to 35% of whole-body protein. It is mostly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligament, and skin. It is also found in large quantities in corneas, cartilage, bones, blood vessels, the gut, inter-vertebral discs, and teeth. Collagen quickly and efficiently repairs connective tissue, improves elasticity of skin, improves circulation, promotes wound healing, increases firmness and hydration. Medicinally Collagen is used in treating conditions of the bone and skin. For Morgellons sufferers treatment of the skin is something that should never be over looked.
One day, after going vegan (I am not longer Vegan), I noticed that my skin looked incredibly lackluster and boring. Not to mention the seemingly endless amounts of wrinkles that were appearing everywhere. I began a quest to find something to help my once radiant skin return. I found it, rather quickly as well. Hydrolzed Collagen type 1 and type 3 became the answer. Due to my minimal protein intake from veganism, my skin began to sag and look unattractive. This had to change. After reading the endless amount of 5 star reviews about Collagen on Amazon I decided to give it a shot. WOW! Is all I can say! Not only within 2 weeks of taking Collagen did my skin begin to glow, but the presence of Morgellons seemed to fade drastically. My skin was fighting back! Perhaps, it was strong and healthy enough to deter foreign invaders. Something had changed and I liked it. No longer did I have to cover my constantly dry skin with copious amounts of lotion. It was amazing. My skin, hair, and nails began to grow and glow! My sun damage, wrinkly face began to reverse itself. I became younger looking and more importantly, younger feeling. A miracle. Collagen is by far the best supplement I found for my skin. One scoop a day in juice or plain water mixed with a hint of vitamin C on an empty stomach (morning for me) is more than enough. In 2 weeks you’ll begin to see the radiance emerge from within. You’ll begin to feel better, sleep better, and look better! Morgellons can’t win if your skin is healthy and strong!
Of course we all know vitamin C and its immune boosting capabilities, however most of us do not know that all vitamin C supplements are NOT created equal. Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is an essential nutrient for humans. It is a cofactor in at least eight enzymatic reactions, including several Collagen synthesis reactions. Though vitamin C plays an important role in enzymatic reactions it is more well known for its antioxidant capabilities against oxidative stress. Vitamin C is a powerful reducing agent capable of rapidly scavenging several reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS, a natural biproduct of normal metabolism of oxygen, can build up over time exerting cellular stress within in the body, also known as oxidative stress. The mechanism of scavenging free radicals is rather important in a stressed environment, especially that of a Morgellons individual. Not only does vitamin C work to strengthen the body by reducing oxidative stress, but it works synergistically with Collagen to improve collagen synthesis and absorption, hence why I have added it to my supplement list.
But reader beware, as stated before; not all vitamin C supplements are created equal. At first attempt with vitaminc C I tried to introduce the standard ascorbic acid that many of us see on the shelf. While it seemed to work decent for ROS scavenging, it did not mesh well with my body, specifically my stomach. Ascorbic acid, an acid, can be extremely acidifying. When taken orally it can cause stomach distress, ulcers, and scarring due to an over acidification of the stomach and body. This is exactly what happened to me. My stomach hurt so much, even after taking only a little bit of vitamin C. I could not handle it. I had to find a better solution to obtain high doses of vitamin C and safely. In the end, I found buffered vitamin C in its purest form; Perque Potent C. This brand is by far one of the best vitamin C supplements on the market today. Potent C Guard is a pH-balanced, vegetarian, allergen-free, and completely buffered mineral ascorbate. It uses 100% l-ascorbate, fully reduced, corn free, which works harder, more quickly and more persistently in the body. The cofactors, metabolites, and transporters in Perque Potent C Guard powerfully enhance absorption and tissue action. In addition, Potent C Guard is free of the side effects associated with other vitamin C supplements. It contains a balance of essential minerals: calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc keeping the pH closer to the neutral zone than any other vitamin C supplement on the market. Now you can see why not all Vitamin C supplements are created equal, though this supplement may be pricey it is well worth every penny, but don’t take my word for it. Check out the amazing Amazon reviews!
To conclude, I currently take all the above supplements on a day to day basis. My skin, nails, and hair look amazing. My wrinkles have begun to fade, my nails grow so fast that I have to clip them on a bi-weekly bases, and my hair has become thick and full. In addition to these gains, I have seen a significant improvement in Morgellons. I hardly ever notice Morgellons any more and if I do it is because my environment seems to be still infected. I believe at this point my body and my skin has become strong enough to deter the Morgellon invaders. No longer do I get bites or itches. Morgellons is disappearing and it seems like permanently. Not once in this battle have I felt this healthy, this in control. It is inspiring and I hope you don’t take these words lightly. It was only a month ago I published the article ‘The End is Near’ predicting that my epic journey with Morgellons was coming to an end. With each new day my confidence and strength is rejuvenated as I continue to poke holes in the seemingly impenetrable force we call Morgellons! So once again, I repeat, “The End is Near!”
