Linda’s Protocol

October 13, 2013 By: kajay Category: Best Practices, Linda (Lindag), Members' Best Practices, Tips

House

 

1. Sprayed the house (walls, floors, surfaces of tables) many times with Windex and/or ammonia water
2. Disposed of a lot (most) of furniture to dump, including all rugs – 2 trailer loads to dump including new couches, new bed, dressers, almost everything
3. Removed carpeting downstairs (we are in a 2 level condo) and left floors for 1 year as bare concrete, meanwhile mopping, vacuuming, spraying all floors and walls while empty.
4. Had PCOs come spray inside of house on many occasions (a waste of $)
5. Put down DE at various times all over the floors, in bookcases
6. Mopped all floors upstairs on hardwood with ammonia water (ruined floors)
7. Used bug bombs in house on many occasions
8. Sprayed a pesticide around all cracks near baseboards (from Walmart) every 6 months.
9. Bought fogger and fogged with Cedarcide entire house + attic.
10. Purchased a Singer steam press and steam pressed all clothing for at least a year, blankets, sheets, everything and stored in plastic zip lock bags. Used plastic bag for purse.
11. Purchased and used a dehumidifier and ran that steadily for 6 months straight.
12. Constant cleaning and vacuuming (daily, upstairs and downstairs)
13. Changed sheets daily
14. Used a swiffer mop and mopped our air mattress with a combo spray of alcohol and white vinegar
15. Slept on air mattresses for a year or longer.
16. Moved out of our bedroom downstairs and bought bed frame (wood) from Ikea and put air mattress on that. Slept with sheets, and 1 blanket all year.
17. Removed all knick knacks, any clutter from entire house. I took to dump or put in large plastic bins to store.
18. Purchased cheap shoes and clothing and tossed frequently.
19. Kept all shoes outside after spraying with Windex
20. Had inside of computer cleaned out by Fry’s electronics; replaced keyboard on several occasions.
21. Purchased good microscope to look at debris from body.
22. Removed furnace and A/C which was original to house and installed new (mold throughout A/C system).
23. Repainted entire house inside (this summer)

 

There is probably more. We lived in constant prayer… stayed away from family and friends for a year. They were told what we were fighting. That was just for the external environment…

 

Body

 

1. Got diagnosis of Lyme/Bartonella/Babesia, and Morgellons from LLMD and started treatment in 2009. Started treating all three diseases (not gone, of course).
2. Occasional bathing and soaking with essential oils
3. Attacking itching in scalp with combo oils of tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil, and oregano oil after showering, leaving that in regardless of smell to others
4. Cut hair very short, boy cut
5. Used hair blower after showers and using hottest setting (I always do this)
6. Used various fungal shampoos… and tea tree oil shampoos on body and hair
7. Used scrubber cloths from Walmart to do a hard scrub all over body
8. Realized I needed to work on increasing my immune support to get body into a healthier place… a work in progress
9. Used Aquaphor on skin when itching was the worst and helps to get a healthy skin barrier back after all the external remedies
10. Used man products that were supposed to kill pathogens on skin
11. Came to realization that much of what I have had became internal so working from an internal point and not just on the outer…
12. Used Vicks for 1st year around nose, eyes, mouth to keep these things out of my orifaces.
13. Did colon cleanses for many months (they go into the rectum, penis, vagina)… recommended by Dr. Staninger to me
14. Working on my spirituality (this should not be listed last) and is ongoing.

These entities are not all gone, but the load is much much lower… I manage these various expressions of this disease process now. Strangely during the change of seasons things are very quiet and I have very few symptoms right now, although struggling with change of drugs for sleep, Lyme, Bartonella, and high blood pressure.

I see fewer fibers 5-1/2 years later, and fewer strange floating things in the house with cooler weather. I am of the opinion that some of these symptoms are due to Lyme/ Bartonella & Babesia as well as newly discovered Fry protozoa parasite FL1953 which is a great imitator of Bartonella symptoms. Also believe that chemtrail materials are affecting all of us, including all living matter on the planet… (Carnicom).

Lindag’s Protocol

October 23, 2012 By: kajay Category: Best Practices, Linda (Lindag), Meds, Members' Best Practices, Tips

Bottom line up front

Internal: Clarithromycin, Doxycycline, Rifampin, Ciprofloxacin, Nattokinase, Interfase, Itraconazole*

Details

Lindag reports that her LLMD has reshaped her treatment plan as follows. As always, remember, this is NOT medical advice. Do not try to construct and implement your own medical plan. It is vital for your LIFE that you involve a knowledgeable medical doctor. These are drugs and many have dangerous potential side effects. Remember: you must decide to outlive the bastards.

In addition to seeking medical advice before taking any of these medications, I also suggest that if you have not already identified several support groups online, that you do so now. You do not have to participate in them all. However, if you join them you will receive their emails.

As for the groups, many states have Lyme Yahoo groups and there are several whose scopes are not limited by state of residence. Join all of them you can and figure out what each specializes in. The best way to do this is to read the documentation they provide when you join. If they provide none, then read the group’s home page message and recent posts, and look to see if the groups have files and links posted. If you want the most benefit from each group, doing a little homework before jumping in goes a long way toward opening that door.

  • Mycoplasma – Clarithromycin
  • Bartonella – Doxy & Rifampin start again, add in Cipro
  • Biofilm – Nattokinase and Interfase

Also

  • Itraconazole
  • Formerly on Diflucan–didn’t seem to do much, but it is supposed to attack Lyme.
  • She said to stop Bicillin for now.
  • Just finished 10 days of Metronidazole (Flagyl).
  • If things don’t improve she will add Ivermectin (I’ve been on before) for FL1953.

* Here is a little info on each of these. For more info, click the name.

Update on Linda G’s Story

October 20, 2011 By: lindag Category: Best Practices, F-Zymes, Linda (Lindag), Morgellons

I mentioned in my story that I do have Lyme Disease and coinfections, including Bartonella. I have started in the last month treating with my LLMD once again. I am taking Doxycycline and Rifampin for the Bartonella. Most likely I also have Babesia, but if I treat for that, it will have to be later. My body can only do so much. It turns out taking these two drugs is not an easy affair… as I am learning more it turns out that both drugs should not be taken when eating certain foods or taking certain health supplements. Nor should they be taken together. It has turned into a rather complicated affair just trying to figure out when during the day to take each of this to get the full value out of the medications. I am going to go to a support group meeting tonight in Oakland, so I am very interested in learning as much as I can about the whole process. I am especially interested in the statistic that 90% of the people with Morgellons also have Lyme Disease, and I am assuming coinfections as well. How much of what we have are the coinfections doing their part? Recently I am starting to grasp the idea that perhaps the Lyme and coinfections are attracting these organisms to us… essentially are we giant magnets for a variety of infestations, whether it be an actual bug, or bacteria, or fungi? It is unknown to me at present. But, even in the last few weeks I am feeling less crawling, biting, and no itching whatsoever. I know of people with Morgellons who have done every medication imaginable for Lyme Disease, who did not lose their lesions, etc. So maybe there is more to Morgellons than Lyme Disease and coinfections, but shouldn’t we at least treat these illnesses if we have them first and see what remains after that?

Linda G’s Story

July 15, 2011 By: lindag Category: Best Practices, F-Zymes, Linda (Lindag), Morgellons, Supplements

While we probably have not spent quite as much money on Morgellons as some have, we nonetheless have spent most of our savings. We also had to cash out our investments to deal with the enormity of expenses on this condition we call Morgellons.

I still do not know exactly what transpired 3-1/2 years ago. Our whole house was infested with something that we could not see. It bit like nobody’s business! Even after disposing of 2/3 of what we owned, taking most of our furniture to the dump, tearing out wall-to-wall carpets, replacing floors, and on, and on, what it was, is a mystery still. At first, we thought it was birdmites only. The symptoms matched our own:

In the first year, I had large lesions or bites, mostly on my stomach. They got to the size of a quarter and a few scattered in various places on other parts of my body. My husband got bites too, but he was not bit as often or as badly as I was. I developed an allergy to their bites and the lesions would become very large and itchy. A biopsy by a dermatologist indicated that the bites were insect related.

I haven’t had anything like this for two years now, but the neurological symptoms to some degree are still with me. I still have fatigue that comes and goes. I have difficulty walking and often have pain in my legs, hips and feet.

In the 80′s, I did a lot of gardening. I took a course with the County Cooperative Extension and the University of California and got my Master Gardener certification. I wanted to do that full-time. I often visited botanical gardens and famous gardens in our area. I still love plants and nature. It was during the time when I was in the garden for hours that I got extremely sick.

Years later, I learned that I had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. My point in telling about this is that, during this time, one of my symptoms was a feeling in the scalp and under the skull like I had ants walking in my cranium itself. Whatever this was caused extreme loss of sense of balance and it was hard to be in a car for any distance because I would immediately start feeling nauseous, not to mention extreme pain all over my body. It was nearly impossible to go on with daily responsibilities of being a wife, mother and owning and taking care of a house.

I now believe that, also in the 80’s, I was struck with Lyme Disease. Then, no one thought about it much or knew what to test for, although I was given the usual battery of stool parasite tests. Nothing ever showed up in any test given. I am wondering now if the symptom I had was similar to a re-exposure of Lyme Disease in the last 3-1/2 years. Although I don’t know what the vector was 3-1/2 years ago, I believe I was re-infected again with Lyme Disease and so was my husband, who tested positive for Lyme as well.

I don’t know yet whether I will try F-5. Many of my symptoms are at a very low level. I may need to take F-5 or F-6 in the future, so it is a wait and see situation.

I’ve taken so many antibiotics, anti-parasitics, anti-fungals, herbals like Cat’s Claw (Samento), Teasel (which really helps with Lyme symptoms), Artemisinin, homeopathics, MMS, and many more. I am grateful to know that F-5 was produced by someone who cared enough to dedicate time and money to fill this tremendous need. I am hoping this turns out to be a cure for those of us with Morgellons. It really does give a huge dose of hope.
