# 48 Talker On Morgellons Hellish Nature
Not much more I could say or add here. The Clifford E Carnicom & Gwen Scott N.D, movie informational material is very informative. The rest is holding your hand. Would energy healing help!
What is Morgellons disease?
Morgellons disease is a poorly understood condition which a growing number of physicians believe to be a chronic infectious disease. The disease can be both disabling and disfiguring. The symptoms include itching, biting and crawling sensations, “filaments” or fibers which emerge from the skin, skin lesions which range from minor to disfiguring, joint pain, debilitating fatigue, changes in cognition, memory loss, mood disturbance and serious neurological manifestations. Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is making plans to investigate the disease, it is not yet fully recognized by the medical community. At this time, the cause of Morgellons disease is unknown and there is no known cure. Morgellons Disease is best explained in detail by our Case Definition.
Where did the name “Morgellons” come from?
The name comes from a condition involving “black hairs” emerging from the skin of children that was documented in France in the 1600’s. It is unknown whether that description is related to the illness we are now describing. However, the similarities were such that the name seemed a unique label for an illness not described by any other medical label, and thus became a much-needed niche for patients otherwise falling outside the present medical paradigm. The name “Morgellons” was intended to be used as a temporary label.
What is it like to have Morgellons disease?
It is difficult to understand the tremendous suffering caused by this disease. Many patients report feeling abandoned by the medical community, as they experience increasingly bizarre, disfiguring and painful symptoms, while often being unable to receive medical treatment for their condition. A large number of patients become financially devastated and without health insurance because they can no longer work. Most people who suffer from Morgellons disease report feeling frightened and hopeless.
Is it contagious?
The “right” answer is that we do not know for sure. However, in frequent cases multiple family members are affected at the same time. At our present, incomplete, level of understanding the more global illness likely move by inter-human transfer but the mechanism isn’t known.
What is the source of the skin lesions and fibers?
So far, we have no idea whether Morgellons skin lesions and related material such as colored fibers are (1) biological agents, (2) produced by such agents, (3) are products of the body’s attempt to rid itself of pathogens or (4) an aberrant body system unrelated to any agent. Serious efforts are finally now underway to characterize the dermal-related material that should solve part of the puzzle.
To date, various clinicians have seen…and occasionally identified…certain common dermato-pathogens OR organisms not found on humans but on animals or on inert material. This suggests the possibility that the skin immunity of Morgellons is seriously deficient, allowing numerous animal or plant parasites to live on human skin. Experience and information from registrants leads us to believe the skin phenomena of Morgellons is not specifically dangerous, although possibly frightening and uncomfortable. The same information sources lead us to observe that treatment addressing the more global symptom set also resolves the skin symptoms and signs. The treatment presently most successful is antibiotics addressing one or more candidate infectious bacteria or protozoa.
