Morgellons: cut the carbs out of your diet immediately, most of all SUGAR!
My visible morgellons symptoms began showing themselves about 5 years ago. Have searched the internet far and wide to find a cure to the skin lesions and the "network" of tough bands of fiber under my skin in certain areas, mainly groin and upper legs. Some in the neck. Mostly near lymphatic vessels I have come to the conclusion. I think my problems started young and have been colorectal based. I had a hard stool issue as a child and was treated with suppositories. Was diagnosed with a swollen prostate at age 21 when I went in for a urinary tract infection. Began having hemroidal issues by my late 20's. I am now 36 and my fight against this has directed me towards an extreme low carb, high protein diet. Most importantly, a Sugar
free diet. I am entering month 10 of this diet and the health benefits I have reaped of this are insane. I am in the best physical condition of my life. For the first time in my adult life I am not considered overweight according to BMI charts. I was unaware I have been an average of 30-40lbs overweight all these years even though there isn't a person I know that would have considered mefat or overweight, it was well distributed throughout my body. I say this because now I question what that extra weight actually WAS. I think there is a fungal/yeast connection with this disorder. I question what myself and others refer to as cellulite. I have had many knots, bumps, and lumps under the skin either shrink or come to the surface on this diet. With many lesions now gone or are now drying up finally. The lesions and the "network" of tough strands under the skin are actually fistulas. They are tunnels, not strands and they originated in my rectal and pelvic area. The ones that still exist no longer get inflamed and I inject Iodine
into them to keep them clean and the are healing and closing up. I believe this is how this awful disorder spread through my body. Which can only lead one to believe this all started as a digestive issue. I think the disorder spread to my sinuses as well. Ears popping a lot. Congestion. I can attest that Sugar
causes lots of mucus in the body. I NEVER get so much as a runny nose anymore and what has drained from my head and what I have coughed up in the last year alone is enough to make me give up Sugar
for good. If I ever do indulge anymore, and I rarely do because it isn't worth it. I feel like utter crap and usually end up going for a run to sweat and get it out me asap. BTW, I now go for an 8 mile run a few times a week and I could barely run a mile when I was a senior in high school. The moral of the story is the original author of this post is spot on because I am living proof of the sugar connection with this disease. If you think you have this condition I would highly advise cutting the carbs out of your diet immediately, most of all SUGAR. Man was never built to eat it like we do now and most of the ailments people suffer from these days are the result. I wish anyone with this horrible condition the best and hope they see the light like I have. Worst case scenario by giving up sugar (artificial too!) is that you will look and feel better, have six pack abs, and be able to run like a fine tuned machine. I only touched the surface of my whole story and could probably write a book on it but I just wanted to reinforce what this person has said because it couldn't be more true. PLEASE GIVE UP THE SUGAR! It's far more deadly than we have given it credit for. Best wishes
