February is Morgellons Awareness Month
The Charles E. Holman Morgellons Disease Foundation has designated February as Morgellons Awareness Month.
Morgellons, which appears to have a connection to Lyme disease, is a controversial diagnosis in the medical world. Sufferers are often dismissed by their doctors as being delusional.
According to the foundation, Morgellons Disease (MD) is a multi-system illness uniquely characterized by the formation of unusual fibers within the skin. MD is a debilitating, painful and life impacting condition consisting of slow-healing skin lesions, overwhelming fatigue, GI disturbances and an array of neurological deficits. Patients with Morgellons may shed unusual appearing particles from the skin described as fibers, sand or seed-like, black specks, or crystalized particles.
Holman Foundation President Cindy Casey and others from the organization have been heavily involved with a documentary film project (still being edited) called Skin Deep: The Battle Over Morgellons. You can watch a trailer of the film here:
The 11th Annual Medical-Scientific Conference on Morgellons will be held on April 14-15, 2018 at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Austin, Texas. This conference brings physicians, scientists, nurses, patients and their families together for 2 days of presentations. The very latest in research and treatment of Morgellons will be presented.

There are so many infections that get no attention from the established medical authorities…While they will panic the planet for other infections (especially if that means money can flow their way).
In treating Morgellon’s Disease patients, I always wondered why drugs like Ivermectin seemed to help many of them so much. What does Ivermectin have to do with Borrelia eradication after all? Eventually, it became clear to me that many so affected actually have round worm co-infections as well, such as Strongyloides.
It comes down to three decades of lost research in understanding the complexity of these diseases, while the authorities were only interested in funneling money to their minions who would deny chronic Lyme existed so they could justify their attempts to find a working vaccine despite knowing the infection does not fit a vaccine model…. they did not care… it is just all about getting money.
