Chin Up/Down Tools

February 11, 2012 By: kajay Category: Baths, Best Practices, F-Zymes, Skin, Tools

Parasites – is it just me, or do they naturally gravitate to the warmest, friendliest place in their world: MY HEAD.

Early on I was still shampooing in the shower, and dodging nasty bites as I washed them out of my hair. My first trick was lathering up top-down, then rinsing top-down, turning around under the water till the lather was off, and then hopping out of the shower. I’ve learned a thing or two since then. What do I recommend that you might not find on the internet (or you might)?

I have saved myself from much worse contamination by using the kitchen sink for everything from the neck up, covering my hair, and THEN showering the rest of me. Once I am done with my hair, it remains covered until it is time to get ready for work the next morning. Failure to follow this simple rule has cost me many miserable hours. So, in extreme detail, here is my nightly routine.

Note: My procedure has varied little over the years, only the chemicals have changed.

History – and Hope

January 24, 2012 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Morgellons, Psychological Effects, Skin

I’m a turkey hunter. One day in May, in the late 80’s, I carried the cooling carcass of a large gobbler from the woods while its parasitic populace happily hopped onto me. After that, I just thought my house had developed an awful flea problem, so I bombed it, and bombed it. I didn’t know it was all about me.

In the late 90’s, a temp moved into my workspace for a month of training. She hinted about a nightmarish condition that had ruined her life. When she left the department, she also left me with a new parasite. I thought I had brought the “fleas” to work. After I requested a second pesticide treatment in my office, a longtime coworker discreetly told me what I had not realized before: I was the only person being bitten. That was difficult to process but explained everything. An email buddy suggested scabies and, as horrifying as that was, I was grateful to have a start point for my research.

I bought a portable microscope, found some great online resources (see links), upgraded to a digital microscope, started

  • A defunct website called livingwithcritters.com.
  • This blog.

Like many others, I went through the emotional phases that follow trauma, and for some time considered suicide.

My area docs responded about like everyone else’s. It turns out that a little article called Delusory Parasitosis, by Nancy Hinkle, is published in three key professional trade encyclopedias: medical, entomological, and pest control – just in case you wondered why they acted like that and said all those mean things.

Through frantic trial and error, I found products and protocols that made life bearable for me while I continued to seek a solution.

I adapted enough to continue working, learned to prevent transmission, averted brain fog (so far), and ducked lesions until 2010.  The Morgellons, or whatever this is, began really accelerating my aging in the past couple of years and I knew that though I had won many battles, I was losing the war.

What Works4Me, Part 5

Cell Phone

On the way to the shower, I use a disinfectant wipe on my phone. I take it out of the case and wipe down the case itself and the sides and back of the phone. I let them dry while I shower.

Chin Down (Shower)

I was getting bitten in the shower till I found these tricks:
  • I NEVER wash my face and hair in the shower. I do that in the kitchen or bathroom sink (see above)
  • I use two plastic canisters in the shower. One for clean scrubbies and brushes, the other for the ones I have used. I keep the canisters filled with clean water that has some Dawn in it.
  • As soon as I step into the shower (in my Crocs) I dip two old scrubbies in one of the canisters and then hang up the two scrubbies on a hook I mounted near the shower head. This drips a Dawn solution slowly the whole time I shower, which reduces the ability of anything I scrub off of me from jumping right back on and taking a big chomp out of me.
  • I use my various scrubbies to get squeaky clean.
  • I get the water as hot as I can stand and “iron” my skin
  • I put some Dawn in my hands and spray it out and onto the shower enclosure walls. This also reduces biting the next time I shower.
  • I mix F-zymes in water (in an old plastic coconut oil jar), and drizzle it over my body. To reduce biting, I add Borax. To reduce itching from the borax, I add a pinch of Epsom Salts.
Thanks for reading. Be sure to add your comments!

Preparing for Sleep: Chin Up (Sink)

Scalp

  • I have been lice combing almost every night for many years. When I miss a few nights, I get really bad head and face crawlies and worst problems all over. I use a regular rubber handled flea comb. They are durable and work well enough for my not so microscopic morgies. I start by applying an F-zyme solution and some dimethicone based hair conditioner, then I comb till the comb comes clean and then wash my hair twice with Dawn.

Eyes

  • I use eyelid scrubbies then rinse my eyes with tepid water, blot, repeat 3x or more. I do my eyes before the rest of my face because the smell of the chemicals helps keep any organisms on my face from running right into my eyes.

Face and Neck

  • I use a Buf Puf and scrub really well.

Hair

  • I apply conditioner, beefed up with a little (not coincidentally antiparasitic) castor oil for more conditioning for little $.
  • I wrap my hair with paper towels, secure them with a wig cap, and cover with a plastic shower cap.
Tomorrow night I will share the remaining bedtime rituals that help me sleep…

 

Petkeeping

September 28, 2011 By: kajay Category: Best Practices, F-Zymes, Morgellons, Pets, Skin

Okay, so you aren’t giving up your pets–NO WAY. You know or suspect they have this too. I get it. I pretreat all pet bedding with a permethrin + insect growth regulator + bitter apple chewing deterrent liquid. After a couple of months, my dogs tell me they want a new bed by shredding the cover off the existing one and distributing puffs of foam rubber or stuffing all over the place.

I wasn’t sure whether to caption this “At one point she would eat anything” or “She hates the critters as much as I do!

I keep Frontline on my dogs, bathe them weekly (no small task), plus we give them Sentinel.

If you have pets and have recovered from Morgellons, please comment to share how you — and they — recovered.

F-Product’s Inventor’s Story

September 26, 2011 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Internal, Morgellons, Ordering, Research, Skin, Supplements

Gordon in his kitchen/lab

A Mission
of Higher Calling

When I, a husband and father, had to stand by and watch my family disintegrate before my eyes due to a horrific disease, I found my options limited. I left my job of 30 years as a registered nurse, bought a used laboratory microscope and set off on a journey of discovery. I had no idea where I would end up.

Three years and thousands of trashed microscope slides later, I had a huge breakthrough. Finally, I had hope that my family and I might be able to recover from the scourge of Morgellons.

Combining my own research with that of highly credentialed scientists, I developed a theory about the pathogen as well as a successful formula for beating it—and to move sufferers in a direction of health restoration and symptom-free living.

For the past four years, we have devoted all our time to the study of Morgellons. We wanted to find safe, natural substances to combat the devastating effects this pathogen has on the human body.

My conclusions are theories, so they will change as we learn more about Morgellons and the pathogen:

Morgellons is an agrobacterial parasite that can jump Kingdoms from plant to animal. In 85% of cases it is transferred to humans via a blood vector: ticks, head lice, fleas, bedbugs, mites, various biting flies and other blood-sucking insects. A small number of people become infected due to extremely compromised immune systems. These individuals may be susceptible to the pathogen through a cut or other opening in the skin that comes into contact with the bacterial pathogen.

Co-infections, especially Lyme Disease but sometime mite infestations, often accompany Morgellons.

Like animal bacteria, plant bacteria enter the human blood stream by way of the vector. Once inside, they proliferate throughout the host’s organs and hair.

The agribacterium can communicate with each other through a process known as quorum sensing. This is why a threat to the bacterium in the scalp may be felt as a bite or sting on the foot.

The bacterium can secrete toxins that destroy human flesh. When bacteria are near the surface of the skin, the toxin can create open lesions that do not heal. Traditional medicine has not developed treatments effective against these lesions or Morgellons pathogens in general. The reason is due to the structure of the pathogen. Its plant base resists treatments intended for animals.

Understanding that Morgellons pathogens are mostly plant material led to the discovery of formulas that destroy plant-based bacterium. The dilemma facing our team was to find a group of chemicals that could destroy plant-based pathogens without harming the human body.

We found our answer in enzymes.

The human body produces many types of enzymes. For example, some aid in the digestive process. However, our bodies make no enzymes capable of breaking down plant fibers, such as cellulose.  And then we had a breakthrough: we found a formula that showed immediate results. Upon further testing, we found that the formula, when added to water and applied to the skin, actually penetrates the skin barrier, enters the blood stream, and digests any plant pathogens it finds.

The process is long and hard, but it works! Research continues.

Update June 28, 2011

One of my fundamental goals when I began this undertaking was continuous improvement. My first attempt at formulating an effective response to Morgellons pathogens was successful. Not only was it highly effective under microscopic conditions, but also it was the first product that brought about a dramatic reduction in my family’s — and my — Morgellons symptoms. I shared it with other sufferers, and they agreed. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive.

While I was happy to hear the reports of victims’ improvements, I was bothered by the slow speed of recovery. Realistically, I told myself that it ws only natural for someone who had had this disease for years to require months for a significant reduction in symptoms. I just felt like I could do better.

Since my original discovery in November 2010, I have learned much. Now I am ready for a full-fledged introduction of the next formula, F-6, aka Restore. I feel confident that users will find their recoveries moving more rapidly.

My third formula is taking shape in my brain. I am committed to seeing every Morgellons sufferer free of all symptoms in the time I have left on earth.

BlogTalkRadio Show

September 26, 2011 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Morgellons, Ordering, Research, Skin, Supplements

Pam Crane has conducted a radio interview of Gordon Stamp, the lovely man who invented the effective F-products. Unfortunately she thinks that I said Gordon recommended Ivermectin. No, Pam. I never said that. :-)  It was another trusted friend who recommended Ivermectin to me because it worked well for her, and so I tried it. My final report on my Ivermectin experiment is in my previous post.

I do think that, if for different reasons, Morgellons sufferers and F-product doubters benefit from listening to Pam’s show. Thank you, Pam, for helping to bring this disease out from under the carpet where it has been swept.

Pam has other podcasts on the subject of Morgellons as well, and they all look worth checking out.

Ivermectin Update

September 25, 2011 By: kajay Category: Best Practices, F-Zymes, Internal, Morgellons, Ordering, Pets, Research, Skin, Supplements

Although initially I felt the Ivermectin paste was helping me, it just made me too sick to continue. It would be time to take it and I just couldn’t face the nausea, so I am again only on the F-products.

I don’t wish to imply that my reports of personal product use represents anything other than just that – reports of my own experience. If I am reporting another person’s story, the title of the post will make that clear.

If I posted only about one product, that would, if I were you, make you question my motives. I’m not doing that, though. I am reporting my story, telling you generally what I am doing and what happens when I do it. I am not asking your permission to do so, nor am I asking your approval of what I write. I hope that you will make your own decisions and factor in all of the information you find from many resources. I have never and will never ask you to take my personal reports as recommendations. They are not. They are reports. Only you can decide what is best for you, and only you are responsible for the consequences for your decisions, as I am for mine.

That said, I do believe that the F-products are a breakthrough. For this reason, and because I have been so frustrated trying to find all the products I use daily as a result of this disease, I set out to create a small online store. My intentions were to contact my own sources and see if they would let me link to the products I like on their websites (affiliate ads) or if they would allow me to outright sell the products on my website and have them dropship the products. I got everything set up but my life has changed in other ways and I just haven’t had time to follow up.

The F-products really stir the critters up and two things help me control surface biting by exiting critters: the main thing is a combination of a heavy oily lotion with an herbal insect repellent mixed in. Without this, all the critters who are pushed out daily, which is a lot of critters judging by the increase in exit spots, bite the fool out of me. Something that helps too, but that I could do without before the oily lotion, is neem leaf capsules @ two a day.

From Gordon – July 2011

July 25, 2011 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Gordon, Internal, Morgellons, Ordering, Research, Skin, Supplements, Support Groups

Let me take a moment to bring you up to date on a number of  happenings. The formula patent will soon be officially registered, which will be a big relief to me. Nevertheless, I expect many unscrupulous individuals to attempt to copy my discovery, but there are facts about its production they will never be able to duplicate. And, as many of you already know, I am working feverishly, around the clock, to improve what I have already accomplished. I will never give up until all Morgellons sufferers are completely free of all symptoms. As I write, a new, more enhanced formula is being tested in my kitchen laboratory.

Success Stories

Several users of my formula are now coming forward and proclaiming themselves to be virtually symptom free. I knew all along that this day would come, even though the misery of getting to this point seems like it takes the patience of Job. These individuals vary across the scale as to length of infestation and severity of symptoms. So, hang in there, and you too will be celebrating with me the beginning of your new life without Morgellons.

Colonics

A new method of administrating the formula has come to my attention. I have tested it personally and believe it can be a valuable adjunct to existing application methods. It is, gulp, the enema or colonic. What is offers is a way to get higher levels of active ingredients into your body where the parasite is doing the most damage. As with any new measure, start slowly. If you decide to try this method, here are some tips that might help.
  1. An enema kit for purchase might be found at a health food store if your local pharmacy doesn’t carry them.
  2. Use the same proportion of water to powder as you would with the spray: 1 teaspoon powder in 4 oz. water.
  3. Start with 2 cups warm solution and if things go well, increase solution to 4 cups, then 6 cups maximum.
  4. Once a week seems like the right amount of usage for this method.
If you decide to try this method, by all means, let me know how it goes for you. That’s all for now. Good luck and God Bless.

Hollyjane’s Story

July 24, 2011 By: kajay Category: Best Practices, F-Zymes, Featured, Hollyjane, Internal, Ivermectin, Morgellons, Ordering, Research, Skin, Supplements

With Hollyjane’s permission, I am reposting her protocol. I also use Orange Plus as well as Benzoyl Peroxide. The Oxy Clean did not work for my laundry. I was not able to back off on the 24-hour soaking time (minimum) and 4 hour drying time until I began using Gordon’s F-Products.
 
The thing to remember, though, is that our infestations may not be identical, may have different vectors (which might also mean differences in the nature of our infestations), and that we ourselves and our environments are different. What works for Hollyjane might help you, and might not. That said, I have seen the chemical effects of Benzoyl Peroxide as it brings up anomalies – of many kinds – through the dermal layers to the surface, where they manifest like a burn, then peel and slough off. Unfortunately, the Benzoyl Peroxide is not appropriate for use in certain areas of the body, whereas I at least have had no problem using F-5 and F-6 in those places. Enough from me, here is Hollyjane’s protocol:
 

I wanted to share a few things that worked for me. I am at a place where I don’t have the mites on a continuing basis. I only have a problem when I encounter a specific few people in my life that are carriers of the mites. Then it may take me a few days to clear them out, but I do not have an infestation in my skin anymore.

FAITH

The first thing I did to start getting better was get right with God. Things did not improve for me until I did this!

PRODUCTS

Check to see if a product works: find a tiny bug, and apply the product. If the bug dies, the product works. If the bug lives, time to try a new product. The following products are tried and true! AND CHEAP!! Except for the BP, but it lasts a long time.

Oxy Clean–Use this in your laundry! It absolutely works! I know it sounds like its too easy, and it really is.  I spent $80 on a gallon of some crazy cleaner to treat laundry.  Oxy clean works better.  It even worked when i only had cold water.  So try it, just a scoop full for a large load.

Orange Plus–Buy the concentrate (only) in bulk at Ace hardware, and mix it in a stronger concentrate than it instructs you to. Use this as your main environmental spray, and you will notice relief very quickly. Also use it for mopping floors. I just pour some concentrate directly on my mop and go to work. So much cheaper than cedarcide, and much more effective!

Benzoyl Peroxide from danielkern.com–Used very lightly on wet skin after a shower and left on. Caution- will bleach clothes when wet, and makes skin sun sensitive.

Tea Tree Tingle Body Wash— From Trader Joe’s, used as a shampoo, and body wash works wonders! If you dont have access to Trader Joe’s, look up the essential oils and add those to regular shampoo.

Ozone generator–Used in my vehicle, it is the only thing that works for me in there, I have tried everything, and I mean EVERYTHING! Ozone generator is expensive too, but very worth it to me because I could have bought one three times over with the money I wasted on other things.

Ivermectin–[See separate report HERE].

CONCLUSION

I am at a place where I don’t have the mites on a continuing basis. I only have a problem when I encounter a specific few people in my life that are carriers of the mites. Then it may take me a few days to clear them out, but I do not have an infestation in my skin anymore.
