Morgellons, a Disease or Symptom?
Read->HEALTH EFFECTS: Fluoride & the Thyroid
Cases of Morgellons are seen all over the United States, especially costal areas, with the highest incidence being reported in California, Texas, and Florida. Symptoms of Morgellons include the sensation of insects crawling, rashes, boil like sores, fatigue, and concentration problems. There are more severe problems that are attributed to Morgellons and they continue to increase as time goes on.
"The name Morgellons was coined around 2002 by Mary Leitao to a proposed condition referred to by the Centers for Disease Control as Unexplained Dermopathy and characterized by a range of cutaneous (skin) symptoms including crawling, biting, and stinging sensations; finding fibers on or under the skin; and persistent skin lesions (e.g., rashes or sores)." source
Research and data collection centers are growing up around this Morgellons problem with lots of money to be made. I encourage you to search the internet and different writings for much more information.
This writing is only my opinion, but I know how I gave myself Morgellons, or should I say, gave myself all the symptoms. I can tell you how to increase the symptoms, control or reduce them, and how to stop them completely.
There are a couple of keys to the Morgellons syndrome. First the largest concentration is in the costal areas. Second (my searching) indicates that it is mostly if not totally related to the people that are into natural medicines and remedies.
Here we go. How I gave Myself Morgellons!
A few years back I heard a talk given by an old medical doctor on the health benefits of Iodine. The talk regarding an iodine regiment was about the thyroid gland. Basically the majority of people have a non function thyroid because of the lack of Iodine in their bodies. The thyroid gland makes and stores hormones that help regulate the heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and the rate at which food is converted into energy. Thyroid hormones are essential for the function of every cell in the body. They help regulate growth and the rate of chemical reactions (metabolism) in the body. The thyroid cleanses the body of heavy metals and pollutants by eliminate poisons through the pores.
If our thyroid isn't working or is jammed up with heavy metals our bodies will just continue to accumulate and store the toxins. We need iodine in our diet or a supplement for the thyroid to do it's job. Our biggest heavy metal contaminate is the aluminum fluoride that is added to much of the water supply, tooth pastes, mouth wash, and many foods. There is really no way to filter this stuff out or get rid of it. It is just pure poison that is used as forced medication of the population for supposedly a tooth and bone enhancer. Fluoride is also the main ingredient in rat poison.
After listening to the doctor's talk I went and searching for Lugals Iodine. Couldn't find any but he also was telling us that Potassium Iodide tablets would also work. These are the tablets that are used as a thyroid blocker in case of a nuclear accident.
Got some Potassium Iodide tablets (KI4U) and started with a heavy regiment, after a month I worked down to 1 tablet every day, as he directed.
I really noticed an improvement in my mental attitude and concentration. Lost a little weight, slept nicely and an improvement in my digestion. My thyroid had been cleansed and things were working along smoothly.
My problems started in the below order about 3 months after taking the iodine supplement.
I started to have an odd taste on my lips which continued to increase in intensity. It is not metallic but an odd salt type taste. I can't describe it although the taste is not over powering or anything, but just something that is there, always. I attributed it to the heavy metals being purged from my body.
Next came the creepy skin crawling. A couple of times a week it would get so bad that I would wake up with a feeling that bugs were crawling out of my pores. I could get some relief by taking a very hot shower. This became much worse and began happening during the day as well as at bed time. The bug crawling got so bad that it became pretty much constant. A shower would give me only a couple of hours relief and they would start crawling out of my skin again.
Then came the boils. Not really boils but boil like sores from 1 to 4 at a time in different, very tender locations. The filaments described for Morgellons were there and the sores were very evil. Reminded me of a light case of the ailment of Job.
I never got the rashes, so it seems like my condition didn't progress to the extent as many that are reported.
Some of my observations:
Costal population and natural health remedies, people seem to have the largest reported occurrences.
Iodine is needed for the proper function of the thyroid gland.
Heavy metals (aluminum) will shut down the thyroid.
Overloading the thyroid with an iodine regiment so it can purge the aluminum from it and out of the body.
I either gave myself iodine or potassium poisoning. I stopped taking the potassium iodide tablets and within 2 to 3 weeks all of my ailments went away, except for the taste on my lips. I was able to get a bottle of Lugol's iodine from a veterinarian and started taking it. Within the week my skin was crawling and the sores started returning.
My conclusion is that iodine keeps the thyroid working as it should and is purging the heavy metals from the body. Problem is that we are so contaminated with fluorine that the aluminum metallic fibers will continue to be pushed through the skin. It may be possible to work all of this crap from the body until the discharges become mild or not noticed, but at the same time we are still taking in the fluoride poison and it has to be eliminated or will build up and cause more serious problems down the road.
It is possible that a small amount of iodine in the diet will help the thyroid clean the body over a long period of time, until it starts to break even. All I know is that the more iodine a person takes the more severe the Morgellons disease becomes.
Just my thoughts and I hope it will give some ideas to those that are suffering from this annoying disease.
