allegedly, the fibers associated with MORGELLONS are actually made up of some type of plastic material, similar to HDPE. There is an ingredient in several essential oils called sesquiterpenes which dissolves this plastic material.
The essential oil highest in this ingredient is black pepper. Therefore, black or essential oil used topically should dissolve these fibers
Wondering if anybody has ever tried this? Any success?
EDIT -- Actually it seems like Cedarwood eo might be a better choice, since it is still high in the effective ingredient but also much cheaper than black pepper
10/17/2007: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Actually the Morgellon's as they are loosely called is a synthetic superbugs, which you can peruse at :
Actually my remedy is to take baking soda to get the urinary pH to 7, plus borax 1/4 teaspoon in one liter of drinking water. It appears that the remedy that is missing to completely kill them are the essential oils found to contain sesquiterpenes. The sesquiterpenes is well known to weaken HDPE, which is a major component breakdown of Morgellon. The HDPE is a plastic, of high density polyethylene and its fibers can be grown in a plain glass of petri dishes with no nutrients. Silver colloids seem to limited in a full blown Morgellon's although I haven't tested this with vitamin C, I do know taking orange oils were helpful too. Certain other that is helpful against morgellon's Include vetiver, clove oil, cedar oil, and pine needle oil.
