Morgellons Disease Awareness contact information for Ayla
Many people contact me asking if I am well now and how do I recommend they go about treatment.
I am not "cured" of Morgellons, although I feel fine, am energetic and the symptoms of biting, stinging, crawling are gone. I do have a one inch patch of skin that occasionally gets itchy, but the full body itchiness of onset is gone and most importantly, I don't feel sick.
Lesions have generally not been a big problem for me, but any new protocol I introduce causes a reactivity of my skin which shows up as papercut and pinprick lesions, usually on my hands. My original recovery was the result of supplements and herbal treatment which I still maintain. I don't consider my journey to be over and I still maintain a healthy regimen.
The first course of action I recommend to anyone is to modify your diet. Get the alcohol, sugar, gluten, white flour products, genetically modified foods/processed foods out of the diet. Sugar and foods that are converted to sugar are antagonistic to the symptoms of itching and biting. Most people balk at needing to make drastic changes, instead choosing to work with topicals, or even supplements. While these strategies are important, you can only go so far this way. Food is medicine and can't be overlooked. A diet high in organic vegetables and nutrient dense foods is a good start towards fortifying the system. Learn how to maintain an alkaline body at the diet + pH link. While this is not going to make the Morgellons go away, it will help reduce symptoms, and getting back to feeling normal is a huge part of the healing process, if not for the physical body, then for the psyche.
Detoxify. Raw foods help with detoxification, juicing of greens and vegetables, cleansing herbs or herbal formulations, enemas, and saunas. morgellonsaid.wordpress.com has some really good suggestions for cleanses.
Here's the hard part, and I can't tell you which products specifically do the trick, as I'm not sure myself, but I do outline a bare-bones protocol on Ayla's Path (look for the italic section in burgundy) based on things I think are important.
You will want to find supplements and remedies that address bacterial, fungal and parasitic issues treating for all three at the same time. Look at homeopathics, essential oils, herbs, supplements, and other alternative treatments.
Heavy metals and their eventual chelation from the body is necessary but should not be undertaken as the first course of treatment, because if you have detoxification pathway issues, you can make yourself very ill with unleashed toxins floating around in your system with no way to exit. Recovery will be a slower, longer uphill battle. Waiting until you've improved your basic foundation, rebuilding intestinal flora, supporting the body with digestive enzymes and vital nutrients help to prepare you for the work of chelation.
Please do not contact me asking for doctors, I do not keep a list. If you want to see a physician, your best bet is a doctor of Functional Medicine, Naturopath, Integrative Therapies, or a Lyme literate practitioner (LLMD), as a large percentage of Morgellons sufferers also have Lyme and improve with treatment. Be prepared for long-term antibiotic treatment and steep out-of-pocket payments.
If you want to reach me or have suggestions for the site, or for materials you think need to be created for 'Awareness,' please let me know. I am listening.
Unfortunately, I had to pull my email address down due to spammers. I can still be reached through facebook. Send a "friend" request to Ayla Morgellons and I will accept.
I hope you've found something of use from the site.
