  • Morgellons disease, so far in a very good way manifested by a number of unspecified symptoms, most of them a disease whose symptom is related to the skin
  • Black, blue, or blue skin of a person with Morgellons disease fibers are produced in red color and these fibers come to the surface and come out many say
  • Many dermatologists treat Morgellons disease as a real and discrete not considered a disease, but rather a delusional parasitosis considered synonymous with (“delusional parasitosis”)
  • Found to be associated with Lyme

Chronic Lyme Disease And Strongyloides Patient Richard Kuhns B.S.Ch.E Describes His Experience With Morgellons And How He Got His Life Back

Richard Kuhns, a Chemical Engineer, who initially worked for Dupont and then left to start his own trek in life as a stress management consultant. Ten years into his new career everything was put on stop after he pulled a vine from a tree in his back yard from which he was showered with dust from a bird nest. It became his life-changing event. With no help from the medical community he was left on his own to find answers to the relentless symptoms of itching, biting, and non healing lesions. Through his experience of doing an elimination diet, he discovered there were certain foods that activated his symptoms and there were foods that deactivated the symptoms and with careful note taking over the course of a year or so he discovered what he calls, The King Diet, which has become the crux of his program.

CDC Morgellons Study Participants Honored in Online Advocacy Video

False information is spreading around the internet suggesting the CDC study did not include any actual Morgellons patients and that no fibers were looked at. Clearly this is incorrect.

40% of the fibers studied were “superficial skin”, consistent with later findings that the filaments originate inside the human body from epithelial cells and are comprised of keratin and collagen. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27789971/

All 12 patients had evidence of Lyme disease, consistent with the association with spirochetal infections demonstrated in later research. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25879673/

Finally, the CDC study was inconclusive. They did not conclude these patients were “crazy”. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/22295070/

Take some time to watch the video yourself, and be sure to like, share, and subscribe!

Additionally, please make time in your day to review this compelling scientific presentation about the CDC Morgellons study.

If you’d like to learn even more about the Morgellons condition, consider reviewing these back-to-back scientific presentations on Morgellons Disease, or MD.

Finally, complete your understanding of what is scientifically relevant versus what is irrelevant regarding the Morgellons Disease condition by watching this scientific presentation and analysis.
