The Obvious Has Been Overlooked
I feel like the obvious has been overlooked or purposely swept under the rug.
I'm a 47 year old electrician of 27 years. A rough I.Q. of about 135...and very in tune with my body.
I've been dealing with morgellons for almost 10 years and it is winning despite I.V.I.G infusions.
So dont tell everyone they need to boost there immune system.
It is my belief the morgellons starts in the hair folicle and makes its way to the nearest vein where it is there that it grows...In your veins.
Now that would sure explain most of the symptoms. Think about that. I know someone must have looked into this. What did they find out?
Thank you for adding your thoughts and sharing your experiences. I'm sorry to hear that you have been suffering with this condition for so long.
Using IVIG Infusions is not at all the same as boosting your immune system through natural nutrition. I'm sure you are aware that IVIG is the process of taking antibodies from other people's blood and putting them into your own system.
Although this can in some ways "boost" your immune system by way of raising your antibody count, it also has a lot of risks involved because of the conflicting reactions that are potentially involved.
There is no doubt that it has been helpful to some people who were not producing their own antibodies and were able to be helped with different conditions.
However, when we speak of "boosting your immune system" here on this site, we are referring to giving your body the nutritional support that it needs through diet and high quality supplements that enable the body to absorb the vitamins, minerals, and enzymes that it needs in the right balance to optimize the body's natural healing properties that
were designed by God the Creator.
Whether Morgellons begins in the hair follicle and travels to the blood is another matter. It's possible, but I don't know if there has been any research done to prove or disprove that theory.
There have been visitors that believe that they are suffering from Demodex mites (use the search feature in the upper right column) that attack the hair follicles and cause a lot of similar symptoms. That's something to consider as well.
Please keep in mind that this site is not a "medical" site. We are simply natural health advocates that encourage individuals to consider the various possibilities when dealing with their health concerns - as naturally as possible.
We've inadvertently become a type of "forum" for those suffering with Morgellons and other conditions to air their concerns and encourage and comfort each other in the process.
We are quite happy for people to do that as long as everyone is civil, kind, and avoid using profanities or making personal attacks. Those that cross the line are no longer free to contribute.
This has become important to many visitors who have been rejected and ostracized by certain members of the medical profession because they were unable to determine the cause of their suffering.
I can only imagine how horrid it would be to be suffering such a debilitating condition and only be told that you were crazy and perfectly fine.
If, as you believe, that the Morgellons is living and growing in the blood stream (veins), understand that rich nutrition is what allows the body to create new cells and repair or eliminate damaged cells.
It is always a good idea to boost your immune system in the right way.
Hoping you find some relief and healing soon.
