Another sleepless night. Another night researching. The battle continues…. A future unknown. A creature unknown. A disease unknown.
The toll Morgellons takes on the affected is great. Relationships destroyed. Imploding sanity. Financial ruin.
All hope is lost in the moments it’s needed the most.
No help to be found. No sympathy to be had. It hurts, but continues. A deep, dark path with no end in sight.
Alas, there is help. Help in it’s purest form. A common goal; find something that works efficiently, effectively, and repetitively. No alternative motive. Nothing but information from a fellow sufferer.
Since my last post on Xtreme Cleen I have improved greatly. Xtreme Cleen actually works really, really well. A bit expensive, but worth every penny. I now use it as my daily cleaner. It is safe on every surface I have tried it on. No bleaching, staining, or destruction. A little goes a long way (4 oz per 1 gallon of water). Although it works, and great at that, I still am on the prowl for synergistic solutions to tackle the onslaught of Morgellons.
Laundry is still the biggest hurdle. I believe my disinfecting protocol is on point (using Xtreme Cleen to soak clothes), however I have run into issues with ‘clean’ clothes becoming reinfected from the washer machine. I am positive this reinfection occurs from the washer machine and nothing else. I feel Morgellons is breeding deep inside the machine where surface disinfection cannot penetrate, thus causing Morgellons to come from deep within during the wash cycle and reinfect. It’s frustrating. I have no way to treat the entire machine without disassembling or replacing it, both of which will never happen.
I continue to look for new information on the treatment of Morgellons. Along the way, I have run into some valuable insight. Recently, I’ve discovered that fellow sufferers have had success with Ozone (a trioxygen molecule). Ozone is a very strong oxidizer and works as a reagent in many organic reactions. As a disinfecting agent, Ozone destroys cells from the inside out. Take for example a bacterium and Ozone reaction seen below:
That being said, Ozone is used in all sorts of disinfecting cases. Industrially, Ozone is used to:
- Disinfect laundry in hospitals, food factories, care homes etc
- Disinfect water in place of chlorine
- Deodorize air and objects, such as after a fire. This process is extensively used in fabric restoration
- Kill bacteria on food or on contact surfaces
- Sanitize swimming pools and spas
- Kill insects in stored grain
- Scrub yeast and mold spores from the air in food processing plants
- Wash fresh fruits and vegetables to kill yeast, mold and bacteria
- Chemically attack contaminants in water (iron, arsenic, hydrogen sulfide, nitrites, and complex organics lumped together as “color”)
- Provide an aid to flocculation (agglomeration of molecules, which aids in filtration, where the iron and arsenic are removed)
- Manufacture chemical compounds via chemical synthesis
- Clean and bleach fabrics
- Eradicate water borne parasites such as Giardia lamblia and Cryptosporidium in surface water treatment plants
As you can see Ozone has a long list of sterilizing uses. Even hospitals use it as the weapon of choice after surgery to help eliminate stray, potentially hazardous organic matter.
“Many hospitals around the world use large ozone generators to decontaminate operating rooms between surgeries. The rooms are cleaned and then sealed airtight before being filled with ozone which effectively kills or neutralizes all remaining bacteria.”
After doing research on Ozone and it’s possibility to aid me in the never ending battle with Morgellons I took to the inter-web to find methods which I could use Ozone safely and effectively. The goal, as with all new treatments, were to find something that; successfully disinfects massive amounts of cubic feet without; destroying property, leaving copious amounts of residue, and a toxic scent linger for weeks.
In the past, previously tried treatments of other substances all proved to be failures. I had problems with lingering smells (Cedar), excessive residue (Windex), and damage to furniture and surroundings (Ammonia). However, in my research, I found that Ozone, which can easily be produced in gaseous form, proved to be quite the fumigator. It leaves ZERO residue, is only a slight oxidizer of metals and rubber, breaks down quickly to normal dioxygen (few hours), and leaves a fresh scent after application. In the end, I could not ask for a better large area purify. My hours of research, finally, payed off. I had found something that looked promising, OZONE!
The Ozone Generator
What was I was looking for?…A powerful, yet slim design that allowed for copious amount of Ozone to be released into the air. I wanted something that would last hundreds of treatments and be powerful enough to fully kill pathogens in over 1000 sq. ft. of surface area. I set out on Amazon to find such a device.
In the end, I researched every Ozone generator found there. I concluded my research on the generator found below. This generator has replaceable Ozone plates and lifetime warranty. Even though it is a bare-bones model, without a case, it still packs a huge punch. More than any of the mainstream, mass produced generators at a much lower cost. It will be my generator of choice and I know will help guide me in the eradication of Morgellons!
As I try different methods and techniques using Ozone I will document and follow up here with the results. I plan on using this generator to sanitize my environment, clothes, and car. I plan on placing this generator in my closet with hung clothes to properly kill all pathogens. I have a distinct feeling that this will work quite nicely, but have yet to try anything Ozone related.
Proper Ozone disinfecting takes roughly 6-8 hours with 4-6 hours of Ozone generation and 2-4 hours air out time. During the air out period ALL windows and doors must be open. It is crucial to get the Ozone out of the area and allow for normal dioxygen to replace it. Please note, that every living organism must be removed before Ozone treatment; plants, animals, and humans. Do Not Ozone with living creatures in the house, unless you want them terminated! And make sure to properly protect your respiratory system from Ozone as it can damage them easily.
For running my generator I bought a timer and fan. The timer is used for the on/off cycle during Ozone treatment while the fan is used to spread Ozone around the room and keep the Ozone transformers cool. Since the bare-bones model did not have any of this included thus it had to be purchased separately.
As I gather more information on my own experiences with Ozone treatment I will document and report my findings. Stay tuned and Stay Strong!
