Bugstory – Part 2

November 30, 2011 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Featured, Morgellons

Europe in the middle ages and later had no DDT and precious little water. What they did have a lot of, in addition to a serious problem with body odor, was lice. always, the wealthy could afford to use various methods to stop the lice from the means to devise and use means of thwarting the lice. Consider these techniques, which didn’t work completely, but must have worked pretty well because some looked so ridiculous I cannot imagine people used them simply for fashion. But then, fashion can get pretty strange, as any trip through a “costumes through the ages” book will show:

Powdered Wigs

Now this is just my theory, based on my own experience with crawling things. What if rich people shaved their heads and wore wigs and powdered them to discourage lice? Possible? I think so. For those who still wear ceremonial wigs, such as barristers and judges in Great Britain, this is probably coming in handy now, with the resurgence of lice infestations.

Ruched Collars

From one 1800’s article we know that at least one person documented that bed bugs traveled to the ceiling and dropped down upon them at night. This is one of many things I have learned that substantiated what many of us have experienced and others disbelieved.

And ruffled and ruched collars, such as those from the Elizabethan era, what was that about? I think those served the same purpose as facings in nicer clothing these days:

Lice are known to travel up the inside of our clothing, particularly up seams, which give them more to hold onto as they climb. This allows them to dine as they climb. But lice are dumber than fleas, and so are Morgellons, in this respect. Unlike bump cars, which back up and go around, lice and Morgellons tend, at least mine do, to stop and bite me through the fabric barrier, and both are equipped with the tools to accomplish that.

Bugstory – Part 1: Furniture Design

November 26, 2011 By: kajay Category: F-Zymes, Featured, Morgellons

Did you know that in the history of furniture design, many decorative, quality home furnishings features were more than likely designed to keep bed bugs, the brown recluse spider, and other pests out of your undies? See what you think…

Over the years I adapted things I learned about other pests and pathogens, such as lice and bed bugs, to deal with what at the time I had no name for. I drew from history, from the scabies board, from random comments by people around me who, in the early days, I ran off with my tales of parasitic woe. Here are some of the things I learned, or figured out:

Footers or Bases

People have always had to deal with bed bugs and other critters, and furniture design is one way they did it. Did you ever notice that cheap home furniture is little more than boxes that sit flush to the floor? And that more expensive furniture design incorporates what I used to think of as purely decorative features, but that, once I thought about it, I realized were designed to keep bed bugs and spiders in their place–that is to say, out of the drawers with drawers in them! They did this by sitting the “box” on a footer or pedestal, which was often carved. This serves multiple purposes: it gets the drawers off the floor, it creates ready habitat for a bug trying to outrun a heavy foot, and it provides a place where the bed bugs or other bugs can escape the pest control operator but–oops! he knows they are all there, and he gets them in one shot of spray.

Lips or Ledges

Another feature of furniture design that has a practical application is molding that protrudes, sometimes just above the footer or base, and sometimes just below the top drawer. Although this makes cleaning more complicated, it does give a level of protection from bed bugs that gave me the idea to sleep on a platform bed during this ordeal.

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.
