The condition called Morgellons seems to involve fiber-like structures protruding from the skin. These fibers are said to be difficult to extract and any attempts to remove them may cause excruciating pain. People also seem to experience crawling and stinging sensations of the skin and lesions that don’t seem to heal. The only studied and documented diseases that are similar are referred to as “Digital Dermatitis” and “Yaws”.
We this matter very seriously, yet we are limited as to what can advocate. Therefore, we will focus on what has been shared by veterinary and Lyme experts. Even though many call them “textile fibers”, we are told that there is nothing similar in the manufactured textile databases. We should ask ourselves why a similar condition is recognized in veterinary medicine, yet humans are considered delusional.
In his book, “Healing Lyme“, Dr. Harrod Buhner tells us that the fibers associated with Digital Dermatitis may be manufactured by “abnormal keratin and collagen expression in epithelial keratinocytes and fibroblasts”(1). He tells us that common sense may tell us to find plants that support the normalizing of these unbalanced functions, yet he doesn’t list any.
I take those words as a challenge and in my own research, I have found plants that may specialize in fibroblasts and keratinocyte normalization, which are how we created this blend. Buhner also tells us that focusing on the cytokine cascade may also support issues such as this. In his book, he states that spirochetes have been found to be associated with the fiber production and they have been found present in lesion sites.
However, the mechanisms at the root of these actions are not adequately studied or understood. It seems to be occurring at the cellular and molecular level. More research is desperately needed. We can only speak on our own experiences and during our illness, we had fiber-like structures coming from our eyes. With general detoxing, including intestinal cleansing, they seemed to stop. When I attempted to do belly button soaks for unexplained movements that no remedies seemed to resolve. With my first soak of Belly Button Solutions™. I expelled what seemed to be millions of fibers, via stool the next day. The only explanation that I can think of is that the powerful ingredients may penetrate through to core areas that may be beyond where most remedies are capable of reaching.
