Morgellons Disease Awareness -  Artist and Morgellons sufferer, Ayla, journals her experience with the disease   I'd like to introduce myself, I'm Ayla, a 59year old artist and graphic designer who contracted Morgellons in Jan. School fees a€“ all the fees for all the pupils at home and elsewhere have been paid in full.
School uniform- since pupils were using skirts, shorts and dresses during the last term, this term there has been a need to change to winter uniforms. Food stuffs- I am very pleased to advise that we have managed to buy all the food stuff for the term both for the school and for Village Hope. School feeding program- if you can recall my words, if I come across a situation which is very pathetic sometimes I cannot be able to express my gratitude.
Community feeding program- as I mentioned earlier that the numbers are falling due to what I feel like political tension, this year there were a number of changes of a political nature. School furniture- we also bought four chairs and four tables for the teachers and cupboards for the storage of learning material. A The year started on a good note as it was punctuated by your visit to the family and the family trip to Great Zimbabwe.
At the end of the term, the children in primary school did fairly well and there were signs of hard work with the children in secondary school. We earmarked the renovations of ceilings as the second project that we had to undertake after the drainage system phase 1 that we have successfully accomplished. We faced a challenge with our electricity supplier as they decided to unilaterally switch us off despite the payment we had made. We had incidences where our beasts fell into water filled pits as it was during the rainy season. The Social Welfare during this term called us regarding the case of Forget who is now part of the family.
The term ended early as it paved way for the harmonized elections that were to be held on July 31.
We extended the wall of the drainage channel in phase 2 of the project to become a durawall. We had been praying and praying that we get a van that can be able to send children to school and do other business without major challenges. We managed to launch the poultry project at the orphanage centre and we are pleased with the progress and cooperation that we got from the centre.
We managed to buy school furniture for a nearby school which was facing challenges with their old and breaking down furniture. We continued with our school feeding program by supplying the highly nutritious drink of Nutresco Mahewu. It is pleasing to note that the project continued to have life although there were different stages of development. A There was a very huge development of the project and particularly by the achievement that was been registered by one of the families. During the course of the term we had visits from officers who are part of the Social Services department. The other challenge was the behavior of the new member of the family whom we had to integrate into the family. Schools opened early to compensate for the time that was lost as they closed early paving way for elections.
It is unbelievable that David came first and highest in all the subjects that he sat for and he did not get less than 90% in all the subjects. Edgar also produced above average results and it seems he is now realizing the importance of education after failing to produce passes in his first attempt at a boarding school. We are happy that Irene passed her June examinations and she now has all the subjects that she needs to proceed to the next level and train as a teacher.
We once again managed to successfully launch the feeding program for the three schools that we had been consistently supplying with the nutritious Nutresco Mahewu. We undertook to research on satellite school and identify a 4th school that we can consider for the school feeding program. Every Sunday after our church service we gather as a family and the community and share food together. Through the initiative we are promoting unity and one-ness among community members who used to be marked by religious and social differences. We once again appreciate your support in this cause of transforming the image of the community.
As our tradition and to uphold consistency we take our time at the end of every term to carefully account and track all the things that would have happened during the term. On this part we scan and assess the general environment of the family and conclude as to whether it was conducive for the social, physical and academic welfare of the family.
We ensured that all our children had enough stationery to meet the school requirements and at the same time to cover for their supplementary studying at home. Most of the children in the family were healthy for the entire term apart from infrequent headaches, flue and colds that can be associated with the winter season. I am pleased to report that we managed to transport all the children from home to school daily.
Our primary school children continue to do well in their studies and we are pleased with their performance. I am really pleased to report on this part as we managed to do all that we had planned to do within the scope of this term. The water channel has since been finished and its completion was a major development as it led us to another development. We managed to buy A school furniture for a nearby school which was facing challenges with their old and breaking down furniture. We continued with our school feeding programme by supplying the highly nutritious drink of Nutresco Mahewu.
It is pleasing to note that the project continues to have life although there are different stages of development. We are happy with the development of the project and particularly by the achievement that has been registered by one of the families.
Regarding the goats, the highest achiever now has 15 goats and the other family has 12 goats. This term we managed to send two of our boys and one community member for Sunday School training.
I have been praying and praying that we get a van that can be able to send children to school and do other business without major challenges.
The other challenge was the behaviour of the new member of the family whom we had to integrate into the family.
I attached a number of photos for all the development that we have made which I thought could explain much better than words. We have come to the end of the first term in the year 2013, yet our minds are still filled with the memories of your visit.
The first term started on a high note as it was marked by change of grades as it was a new year. The results of the final examinations that we had been waiting for were finally released in February. A We had minor encounter of sicknesses with Chiedza who was once affected by sore throat, Nicolette who was once affected by running stomach and weak joints, Arlene who had sore throat and fever, Pamela who had headache and fever and Irene who was complaining of headache and stomach pains. The major development this term was the construction of the drainage channel in Phase1 and Phase 2. This term we continued in our efforts to support schools and the community through the feeding programme.
Apart from the growth in offsprings we continue to face challenges with some members of the community who are selling the offsprings and remaining with nothing. During the course of the term I received a call from the Social Services offices outside our district concerning a boy who was staying with a mentally challenged grandmother. We continue to have Charmaine in our hearts and mind given her physical condition and the place that she is staying. We had three incidences this term when our beasts would fall into wells and we had to rescue them.
I hope and believe the Almighty Father shall continue blessing you for the job welldone, children are smiling all because of your hard work. Well, it is very unfortunate that you missed the initial request for furthering the women empowerment. Society views women as vulnerable members of the community who need total support as they bear many burdens that men can easily get away with or evade.
It is against this background that Alice have decided to pivot upon the women as pillars for community and family transformation. We require three sewing machines to kick start the project and with the funds that you have already left we can mobilize the women and hire a qualified person to teach the women cutting and designing of garments. On the marketing and selling side we are proposing that we can make an arrangement with the schools so that they can get at least 5% of the sales to support their school needs, this way we will be assured of a ready market for the products. There have been efforts of uplifting the community such as the poultry project and the goatsa€™ which have played their part but the sewing one seems to be the climax of the initiatives. On the other hand the cutting and designing skills will personally benefit the women as they can in their spare time be able to sew clothes for themselves and those of their children. Please notice: For the above initiative we are not asking for more funds we want to utilize the funds you left first then we can see the results. George,Irene and Theresa are working flatout as they realizied their mistakes,I hope this time they are going to do their best.
This is because I have been putting in place all things necessary for a successful second term. This is because the weather has become chilly lately so the pupils now have blazers, trousers and long sleeved shirts.
We want our children to have access to the best reading and writing material so that they are up to the standard required by government in all schools. This is very critical as we always want to stock sufficiently for the term as it is hard to keep buying on a daily basis.
We have added more food stuffs than before as we aim to achieve better healthy for our children and encourage to come and concentrate.
In addition to this we are going to fit four fire extinguishers into each of the classrooms.
We had to make our children attend extra lessons and we monitored their studies as we sought to improve the pass rate in the family. The boy came from a tormenting background and we thank the Almighty Father that he is now in a safe place where he can access food, shelter, clothing and education.
Beneficiaries continued to reap benefits from the project and some beasts and goats gave birth to more offspring.
There were no challenges at school as our children behave well and faired very well at the end of the term. This means that security on the property had been enhanced and on the same note our animals cannot stray into our maize field.
It was all joy as we bought the new van and managed to sell the old van that was now giving us challenges. We lost a Freezeland during the term and that was setback to our objective of crossbreeding our animals. We were pleased by the issue of continuity in the project that they have mastered as they went from the second batch to the third batch. The children continue to enjoy the drink and the feedback from the children regarding the drink was very encouraging. One of the schools managed to buy the second batch of chickens as they uphold the concept of continuity that we laid as the foundation of the project. The interesting part of it is that the families have been selling some of the goats in order to meet the school fees of their children and in some cases for groceries and other pressing family needs. We shared with them our experience and help each other to look into issues that need their expertise and consultation. We faced some challenges as he could not practice good hygiene and in some cases he would come from school late. We bought uniforms for all the children who had outstanding items that needed to be bought. This clearly shows the hand of the Almighty Father in the life of David and looking at his background it is an impressive performance. She is producing excellent performance and if she maintains her performance she will get very good grades in Grade 7.
Although her performance is good she has not been able to consistently deliver the best grades that she obtained in the previous terms. Their performance has been below average and we are looking at ways of improving their results.
He failed all his subjects and the teachers indicated on his report that he is rude and stubborn in class.
We continue to encourage her as she goes into Form 3 which forms the foundation of Ordinary level education. George and Tapiwa wrote their Advanced Level examinations while Theresa wrote her Ordinary level examinations. This third term we were busy going about Teachera€™s Colleges where she was attending interviews. This was a journey of discovery as we learnt that Lovemore, David and Pamela come from the same area as Charmaine. They changed the meter to a prepaid meter and they insisted on charging us commercial rate because of the grinding meal. We realized that the rains falling on the premises are washing away the soil and are a threat to the rock boundaries that were erected.
After visiting four schools during the research we chose one school which is near the orphanage and the school has 712 pupils. Many families are now benefiting from selling the goats and they can afford to put food on the table this coming festive season. Not all family members despite the interventions we have done can put food on their tables throughout the year.
We also give milk to children from the community as part of the community feeding initiative. The same platform also serves as a time of interaction on the word of God and the progress on the various community initiatives. We had elections in 2013 but the Almighty Father protected us from the dangers that are associated with African elections. The Village Hope family culture allows every child to be served individually and we have maintained our concept of serving as buffet. We ensured that all our children had adequate and warm clothing so that they would not easily catch colds or fever. It remains our objective to have our children improve their grades and get better results in their final examinations. We started with them from preschool and they are producing good results which reflect the input that that they are receiving from the family. We have two girls who wrote final examinations in June as they were supplementing inorder to make sure that they get enough passes to proceed to Advanced Level. They are now in their second batch of the chicken and the manager has since advised us that they are going into the third batch soon. The children continue to enjoy the drink and the feedback from the children regarding the drink is very encouraging. One of the schools has managed to buy the second batch of chickens as they uphold the concept of continuity that we laid as the foundation of the project. The interesting part of it is that the families have been selling some of the goats inorder to meet the school fees of their children and in some cases for groceries and other pressing family needs.
We share with them our experience and help each other to look into issues that need their expertise and consultation.
We are pleased that we have now a functional Sunday school in the home and that caters for the community.
As I advised you earlier on that I will be going to the South African border to buy a van, I managed to have a successful trip.
Forget became a new member of the family and we are pleased that he is finding his way as we guide him into the culture of the Village Hope family. Above all we reflect on the visit to the family, the visit to the community, the Great Zimbabwe trip and the game drive. All our preparations went well as we worked hard to ensure that all the uniforms, stationery and many other requirements were in place. We continued to encourage our children to put more effort in their studies so that they can get better grades in the future.
We have two of our girls writing in June and two in Advanced Level who will be writing in November. There had been challenges with drainage on our property and water was running down towards the residential area after rainfall as you witnessed. The number of offsprings among the beneficiaries continues to increase at a tremendous rate. By this Easter holiday we may be able to give them the animals as part of our growing number of beneficiaries. This is contrary to our founding principles as we agreed that from time to time a member should be left with at least two offsprings are passing the first animal or selling to meet family needs. After gathering information through research in other communities, institutions and diverse organizations Alice have come up with another initiative that may help in addressing the plight of women in our community. In Shona there is a proverb which says; Pakafa amai vana dzave nherera asi panofa baba vana hadzisi nherera (this means that when a family loses a mother, the children become orphans but when a family loses the father the children are not orphans).
If we are to empower the children of the community and their families, it is wise to invest in the women of the community. When the women have mastered the art of cutting and designing they can start sewing school uniforms for the surrounding schools.
With the poultry project some beneficiaries would consume as relish the chickens that were meant to generate income. Clothing is a basic need and if women can cut their costs by making some clothes by themselves and they will reduce expenditure on clothing and use the resources for other family needs or pressing issues from time to time. As we labour in these efforts we are giving the women in our surrounding areas the hook so that at any time they can go fishing. I've been moved to create awareness tools that help educate healthcare practitioners and the public about Morgellons Disease (see Awareness Poster) as well as share what I've learned from this experience.Many of the skin photos in the photo galleries are mine. This is an update on all the things that I have covered as of today on a stage by stage basis.
This is as per government requirement whereby every winter all pupils have to wear warm clothes to protect them from the harsh weather.
It is our family standard to aim very high in all things we do such that it is up to the pupils to do their best and not end up blaming anyone for their failure.
There is therefore a need to conduct elections to fill in the gap left and so we are faced with elections once again on June 10, 2015. Two of them dropped on medical grounds and one moved with the parents when they shifted from the community and the other one just dropped back but the parents said she will resume next term.
Our aim was to ensure that the property is not destroyed by running water and we managed to finish the first phase of the project. We had a setback when one of the beneficiaries decided to sell a beast without our knowledge. We fitted the Rhino board ceiling which are fireproof and that is a welcome development to the safety of the family. The old van had started giving us challenges and was nolonger reliable.A  I managed to have a successful trip to South Africa to buy the van. We are happy that our poultry project is growing in strides and we are teaching our children how to look after the animals and the birds. Although they have not maintained the number at 1000 because they use the proceeds to meet some need of the institution, we are very pleased that they have managed keep the project rolling. Their visits ensured that we are in line with their expectations and doing the best for the children.


As our policy we do not buy school uniforms every term for all the children but we consider those that have needs as the term begins. That will boost her chances of getting placement at a better school after she finishes her Grade 7. We are doing all to make sure that she keeps the momentum as she goes into Grade 6 next year. They are struggling with their school work and we feel we have to seek assistance so that they can be moved to a safe place. He needs to pull up his socks if he is going to produce good results in secondary education.
The results will be known end of January or early February 2014 and if they do well the boys will proceed to university and Theresa will go into Advanced Level. We continue to monitor the welfare of Charmaine and support her in all ways possible as she is in the custody of her relatives. We had challenges to register the new meter and the outstanding amount on the electricity bill. The other children are now comfortable with the name and we are hopeful the boy is on a path to transformation. We are now reinforcing the rock boundaries and dealing with the new challenge of draining that we discovered after the previous phases.
Despite the challenges that we faced with our beasts in the past two terms we are happy with the state of our animals. We are encouraged by the response that the children continue to give regarding the supply of the product for their consumption. According to the research we carried out we identified that the school will need assistance just like the ones we are already assisting.
We are pleased with the feedback we are receiving from the beneficiaries relating to the assistance that the goats and the beasts have given them.
This year alone they acquired cutting and designing skills and they were empowered with state of the art new sewing machines as a group.
This promotes not only a healthy community or the spirit of sharing but it builds and cements harmony in the community. As we build relationships among the community members we are also promoting a healthy relationship with them so that we can realize our objective of transforming the community into a company of productive and empowered individuals.
He gave health to the family and we went about our duties and the children attended school and wrote their examinations.
The schools have closed a week earlier according to the scheduled school calendar inorder to pave way for the impending harmonized elections in the country that will be held on the 31st of July this month.
This is meant to produce children who are spiritually and morally balanced for interaction with the society. Although the rate of consumption goes up in winter as the body would want to generate more heat we were able to meet the demand for foodstuffs and this one of the major factors that provides a conducive environment in the family.
Adequate stationery is a tool to providing good education for our children who are the future of the world.
This is in line with our mandate to make sure that we produce children who have better grades and who can be competitive on the job market.
We are expecting reports from the schools about the feeding project as we plan for the term which will be hot. As I report the beast gave birth to a bull calf last year and now the beast is now encalf and they will be getting another beast any time from now. Their visits ensure that we are in line with their expectations and doing the best for the children. We are pleased that our boys bare now responsible and the family will be well grounded by the new development. He transferred the amount into our account as proof of payment and a proof of receipt inorder to declare to the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority. Given his background we have had some challenges with him associating with the other family members and issues relating to school.
We continue to offer our appreciation for the moral and financial support that you are extending to us as a family and meeting the needs of the young and innocent souls in our care. The revision plan will take into account even those who are not writing as we enhance our efforts to improve the grades of our children.
To address the challenge we undertook to construct a drainage channel as per our discussion.
The goata€™s offspring tops the chats given the short breeding cycle of goats and the abundant pastures that are there because of the rains. Some individuals continue to show selfish tendencies as they forgo long term benefits to satisfy their desires today. This term we visited our girl Charmaine to check on her and supply her with some basic needs and school requirements.
We have negotiated with the farm owner who sold us two of the Freezelanda€™s to sell us one more. The ground became very slippery and the wells that were dug a long time ago were covered with vegetation.
Were being highly charged and the operation team from the company would come do disconnect power unilaterally. We equally shared a good time as we had time off from our hectic schedules and had to spend quality time with the family and take part in church activities.
This statement comes from the fact that a mother will never abandon her children nomatter the circumstances. On the foundation level we started with dolly making and this has proved to be a success as you sold some of the finished products. Initially the project will be launched as nonprofit making since it will be purely skill gaining and empowerment until the women can on their own or as a cluster of individuals in the community.
With time we may have to find other selling points that may be convenient with the customers.
Such losses are eliminated when women take part in the empowerment projects like the sewing initiative that we have on the cards.A  Although the chickens were more profitable in the short run, the sewing project is profitable in the long run as is not affected by seasons just as the supply of chicks is limited in winter. This will help them concentrate better in their studies without worrying about the cold winds. To be honest with you dear friends we are trying our level best as Village Hope to put our children first for their best interest.
Due to changes in the weather there is need to change the diet a bit to include warmer food stuffs such as tea and coffee. We received good rains at the start of the summer season but the rains vanished when crops were tasseling.
This means that it is hard to organise large gatherings because this may be mistaken for political activity.
My dear friends it is a blessing to have these children at Village Hope as our children in Christ.
We express our heartfelt appreciation to your continued support and unwavering commitment to see Village Hope stand and shine in the community and to the entire nation.
Some of the children who wrote their examinations last year were awaiting their results which finally came in February. In the end the demarcation for the drainage system helped us as it is now acting as a barrier to animals since they can no longer stray into our fields. Since it was an athletics term, the consignment went a long way in helping the plight of the children.
The feeding for the Freezelands continued to be a challenge but we appreciate your support as we seek to boost our family herd. It remains our drive to see that children are empowered with practical skills such as poultry so that they can be able to support the initiatives in the community and in the long term is able to start their projects. That was milestone and a testimony that will be cherished by other members of the community.
A The objective that the people of the community should embrace the objective of sustainable development was being realized. This allowed the women to be able to move into the area of making school uniforms that they can sell to the nearby schools. We bought stationery for all the children to meet the school requirements for the third term and extras for their study at home.
This will serve as an encouragement to the other children that nothing can stand in the way of a person if they put all their effort. We always remind them of the importance of school in this age and encourage them to put more effort. We do all we can to send the children to school and teach them at home to behave well but he is not representing the family well.
We are happy that she is looking healthy and settled with the new grandmother that her grandfather married. This third term was summer and the temperatures were relatively high and the demand for the drink by the school children was high. In the same manner the schools are set to be opened a week earlier to allow the children to compensate for the one week lost this past term. Children could study, take their meals and engage in all activities in a peaceful, harmonious and tranquil environment. We also allow children to take part in the activities in the home such as rearing of animals and the poultry project.
It is our baseline as the Village Hope Family to ensure that all the children have proper school uniforms. Our children were always punctual at school and that is the best way for them to start the day and we are putting that seed of punctuality in their lives. This is a milestone and a testimony that will be cherished by other members of the community.
This has been our objective that the people of the community should embrace the objective of sustainable development. This will allow the women to be able to move into the area of making school uniforms that they can sell to the nearby schools.
George who was in Advanced Level and wanted to do Political Science failed to score the required 8 points so we decided to send him back to school to supplement for the other points. All the materials including bricks, sand, stones and cement was acquired to see the construction go underway. In our interview with the children we noted a great level of satisfaction and appreciation of the product. Families are continuing to reap benefits from the project and they are putting food on their tables and sending their children to school. We attribute this mainly to negative influence by some members of the community and the low literacy levels. We are treating him as a member of the family as we await instructions from the Social Services offices who are trying to locate his relatives. Even if a woman remarries she will continue to care and look after her children from the previous marriage.
We have at this point in time decided to venture into sewing of garments and in this case school uniforms. At a certain point the project can become profit making and then the women will reap rewards from it. Uniforms have no seasonal demand as they are needed at any time given that some people can buy on holidays as they prepare for the opening of schools. We have also bought school bags and shoes for the children so that they do not feel out of place at school which might affect their concentration.
Milk is also a high protein food stuff compared to orange juice which has high energy content.
We are however continuing with the project but we hope that with time our number will grow once again. We take this time to walk you through all that we have managed to cover during the entire year. We thank the Lord Almighty Father for granting them health and safety as they prepared and finally wrote the examinations. The other beneficiaries learnt the art of consistency and steadfastness as they engage in their activities. The worst case scenario was that of families that received goats, a beast and chickens but today they cannot account for any of the things that they received. In the short term they were able to learn and acquire the skills for cutting and designing but in the long term they will be able reap from the project and support their families. The prepaid billing system has proved to be a little bit cheaper as compared to the estimated billing system they were using to charge us. We reiterated the need for the school authorities to continually update us regarding the progress of the feeding program. The lives of the women will never be that of idle people or gossipers but they are now productive women and community builders. There was no disruption to the studies of the children since we would use the generator if there were power cuts related to load shedding. This is meant to equip them with life skills that will sustain them outside the environment of the home as they will not spend the rest of their lives under our care. This helps in portraying the image of the family and making the children to feel confident at school. This is meant to ensure that they master the art of coexistence with others and develop with a global mind. She continues to impress us and make us see the hand of God as she came from a very terrible background. The other beneficiaries will learn the art of consistency and steadfastness as they engage in their activities.
The calf is still sucking milk and this is all positive development in line with the project. The worst case scenario is that of families that received goats, a beast and chickens but today they cannot account for any of the things that they received.
We managed to send him to a nearby school and we are happy that he is back at school and we are continually monitoring him. In the short term they will be able to learn and acquire the skills for cutting and designing but in the long term they will be able reap from the project and support their families. Once again we appreciate your gesture and the sacrifice of your time to be with the family.
Only those who were waiting for the results stayed at home as examination results were due in the early month of February. Irene who wrote Ordinary Level and wanted to train as a nurse failed to pass Mathematics and Science which are two of the required subjects.
Reports show that consumption has been very high and this has boosted the level activity in athletics.
This shows the depth that women can reach in taking care of their children whereas a father once remarried can easily neglect children from the previous marriage. Like most, I panicked bought a lot of unnecessary products—some toxic, then managed to pull myself back from the brink of actually hurting myself.
We have also added more eggs to the diet to build on protein which can be converted to fat.
As I mentioned earlier that the school will be our foundation for more future projects for sure ita€™s a new generation ready for a bright future. We had mile stone achievements and we are pleased to report on the great exploits that we had. We maintained the silver colour and we managed to register the car for use and it is now fully operational.
Empowering the women is empowering the community given that it is the women in most families who are the breadwinners and women never forsake their families. This November we used an average of $300 which was not possible in the past as they were charging us an average of $600 per month. We do not want our children to feel inferior by their dressing in the company of other children.
On the other hand the medication that she was given during the time that the tests were being done miraculously worked and the child got better. This stage will determine whether they will be able to go university if they score highly or the will go colleges for courses. It has one row of seats at the back and we need to put two more rows so that all our children can fit. She is supplementing with the assistance of private teachers and she will be writing in June. This is a major boost to our initiatives as we continue to note the nature and extent of the impact that our combined efforts are having on the young lives.
Women cannot neglect their children and this attachment to their offspring makes them vulnerable as they go at length trying by all means to manage the welfare of their families. This is comparable to a situation we faced in 2008 when some people had to depend on wild fruits for survival. The school will cater for generations to come and this project is now beyond our imagination as it will cater for people whom we have not even met. The new machines took the empowerment drive to a new level and the lives of the women will never be same and their families. This was not the first time that the child had this kind of illness but this once happened in 2010 and only to resurface again in 2013. The new machines take the empowerment drive to a new level and the lives of the women will never be same and their families. Theresa who wants to be an air hostess failed to get the required subjects so she had to go back to school as well and she will be writing in June and November. Always wary of doctors, I tried to stay out of that loop but finally caved when my beloved ones pressured me to seek help. So far the school has been able to mix pupils from very different backgrounds into one class of happy children. The nature of the illness has not been ascertained but some doctors had suggested that it could be chronic juvenile arthritis. This means the group that did not return to school on the onset of the term later joined the other children though going to different schools. Apart from serving the purpose of drainage, the structure also demarcates the residential area from the field and it serves as a barrier for animals straying into the field. Children have immensely benefitted from the product as some go to school without having any meal and some walk long distances and by the time they get to school, they will be hungry. A dermatologist gave me Ivermectin which caused a Herxheimer (die-off) reaction and many of the black particles I'd been seeing with a scope surfaced. Basing on that experience I find myself out of words to say thank you for the help towards feeding the community. Some are very poor indeed, while other are better off and yet others come from very well off backgrounds. Phases 1 and 2 have been successfully completed except for plastering that is needed to make the walls stronger and on the cards is Phase 3.
This gave me great relief from the discomfort of what felt like fiberglass embedded in my skin. This mixture helps the children relate well with each other and learn each othera€™s cultures and backgrounds. Phase 3 requires more resources and careful planning as I once mentioned as it involves construction of a reservoir or a collection point. Ever since we introduced maheu in different schools the enrolment has increased and the average performance also rose. We continue to pray to the Almighty Father to guide the family and protect it from the outbreak of diseases that are spreading in the country and the whole world. There were NO fibers visible in my skin in the previous months before taking the medication.
For example a child whom we supported from Village Hope was a boy living with a grandmother who benefitted from the a€?Pass It Ona€? project.
We have been able to change the uniform to winter wear which includes trousers and long sleeved shirts.


In summary, the property is nolonger under threat from running water or overland flow since the two phases of the drainage channel were completed. Within two days of taking the Ivermectin, I watched in horror as fibers started to rise to the surface of my skin.
This boy did not have a birth certificate, national identity card or uniform for school and Village Hope assisted him to acquire all these. This is a good demonstration of the performance of children who reside in a caring community where they get all the requirements for good growth such as food and clothing all because of your caring love. Some words of advice- at first we gave out a free uniform but we had to sell in order to acquire new fabric. That plus coming off the tail-end of the pharmaceutical seemed to stop all the symptoms of itching, biting and crawling for approximately the next 4 months.
This term the school feeding program will be even more important as children will get more of their food at school compared to home. This is not a profit making venture but an attempt to ensure that all our children are uniformed so that there is no noticeable difference between them. The only thing that hadn't cleared up was the hyper-sensitivity to my skin which I thought I was stuck with for the rest of my life, an unfortunate consequence of having Morgellons. Had I not been actively using a microscope to look at my skin during this period, I might have presumed I was well. The skin however, doesn't lie and told a whole other story for under it's surface, fibers and particles were clearly still present—multitudes of them. Early on, I'd heard about the testing that Pam Crane of Morgellons Focus On Health (site no longer active) was championing and felt that it was probably the way to go. Things are not very bad in the first part of the dry season but as stocks run low in most homes the situation will become critical. My only problem with moving forward was a lack of practitioner, as I felt having the best testing in the world wouldn't mean anything unless someone was up to the task of decoding it's contents into a meaningful protocol, sort of like buying a Cadillac that arrives without the key. I wanted to have a conversation with whatever doctor I was going to see and to hear them speak about their philosophy of healthcare. Just try to get a physician on the phone before actually making an appointment and you will find it is an impossible task (especially the high-end specialists). She talked about The Great Plains Labs and why the testing used in Functional Medicine is so important for our community. She sounded like she knew how to do her job well and was more than capable, indeed she had impressed me as understanding how to approach the disease in a holistic manner that aligned with my own healthcare philosophies. I believe my first words to her were, "Where do I sign the dotted line?" (While focusonhealth has been taken down, here is another radio show with Nancy speaking with Pam. Let me remind you that I felt fine when I first contacted Nancy, but the emerging fibers showed me I was not.
Nancy forewarned me that treatment would kick up all the initial symptoms I had when first ill with Morgellons, such as itching and stinging and that I might experience more fatigue with die-off, possibly even get lesions although I hadn't had many lesions previously. Within a week and a half of beginning this new protocol all the discomforts she mentioned came back. Black particles began coming out from the skin, sand-like crystals were suddenly pushing from the scalp, I was itchy and uncomfortable but this time around it was at a much lower volume then at onset. I have experienced some lesions, in the form of 'papercuts' and blood spots appearing on the skin. They were tiny and healed quickly. It took close to 3 months for the symptoms of this detox to disappear, lessening with each week. We added in another few products to my protocol fine-tuning the process. Once all my symptoms had abated I was ready to move on to the next step and do a colon cleanse. I used supplements for one month that gently cleansed the colon (Colon Cleanse by DaVinci Labs??).
After that, I began with chelation therapy (Chelex by Xymogen) to remove heavy metals. Nancy has taken me through this journey with constant support through email. The fact that she is able to tell me what I can expect and interpret what I am going through is invaluable. Having gone through the early treatment phases and emerging symptom-free, makes me feel that I did indeed work through something—hopefully clearing biofilm. So where am I right now and what are the changes that happened over these few months of treatment?My skin cleared of many of black particles, although I still have them (my great lament was that I didn't have a camera back when I first got sick, because my skin was so saturated it was alarming!). Actually, I feel spry and 10 years younger than my 55 years of age (at the time this was written), an unexpected and very welcome gift. Still, they are here and I am monitoring them carefully. I am convinced of the value of the Great Plains and Metametrix testing. It just makes sense that one would want to know the particular weaknesses of their body before embarking on a journey of healing. Getting the labwork done and seeing Nancy are the two smartest things I did throughout my ordeal. Morgellons for me is like that impossible teacher I had in my youth. But it has also left me savoring hard-won battles and set me straight on how to live more in balance. Therefore, I try not to rail against the unfairness of the experience, but to look at how much I learned and the ways in which it has stretched me as a human being.
Yes it has been a miserable teacher, but by it's hand I have been become an attentive student.I wish you all full recovery.
AylaWhile I am not comfortable sharing my protocol as it is specific to my lab results, I will outline what I feel are the bare-bones minimum I'd look to take if I were building a protocol. This would be a good probiotic (I use 3 different kinds throughout the day as was indicated by the results of my testing). FOS, according to Nancy can promote yeast growth so I'd stay away from a probiotic that includes it. I'd include a biofilm buster which breaks down the cellular matrix in the gut that inhibits absorption of necessary nutrients. I used Interfase Plus and Wobenzym at different times (there are different kinds of Wobenzyme. I've used Carlson's liquid D3 which is lipid based, but recently have switched because of assimilation issues with fats to a dry encapsulated D3 (Prothera brand 5,000 I.Us a day). Certain of the B's can become depleted when the body is fighting infection, so a good B-complex seems necessary. Also, Mr. Common Sense and now Clifford Carnicom have written about NAC and it's benefits along with vitamin C in helping quell the symptoms of our condition. I'd look into this as a close friend from the community began taking both high amounts of Vitamin C and NAC and her symptoms disappeared.
She was taking 3,000-5,000 mg of C spread throughout the day and 600 mg 2x's a day of NAC both in the morning and at night. She eventually reduced it to 2,000 mg of vitamin C and 600 mg of NAC because the NAC was giving her headaches. The lesser dosage has been fine for keeping her symptoms of crawling, biting and stinging away. When she went off the protocol symptoms came back and when she again resumed, they went away. I might mention, that my protocol has always called for 1000 mg of vitamin C, three times a day. While I was not on NAC as a separate supplement, it is in another product I take daily ?(Liver Protect by Xymogen). Nancy has stated that the clients she sees that do this first make themselves much worse and take longer to get better. If I am going to do this right, I want to know what my baseline toxic load is so I can measure my progress over time.
The results arrived right after I finished my third week of chelation. My total toxic representation was OFF the chart with high levels of antimony, silver, cadmium, tin and magnesium.
I have a host of other metals as well, they just were at lower levels than those mentioned above. Once Nancy reviewed my test results and knew how I was responding to the treatment she modified my protocol to include a liver support, and the addition of 3-4 new products that would also help balance me out. I keep an ongoing visual journal using photos which I share with her so she can see any new developments. During chelation I was more tired, needing to take naps and sleep longer on most days.
I also had some tiny red spots appear on the skin without breaking through.Red spots appear on the skin. Based on what was going, on Nancy pulled back on the chelation so that the process is even slower and gentler until my body can adapt.
Using shea butter and coconut oil mixture as a moisturizer seems to draw fibers and black particles from my skin if left on for 3-4 hours. Most are not readily apparent unless you really look for them. Hair The Morgellons has moved into my hair. An acupuncturist, pointed out after looking at my hair photos, that there were multiple "hairs" emerging from one follicle. This is probably why my hair feels thicker even though it has been brittle, weak and falling out.
Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria I had with high levels the first time I was tested, is completely gone. There was a new bacteria that showed up on this round of testing that wasn't on the previous.
Nancy feels that this is something that could have morphed, or, could have been present all along, but like peeling an onion back, was hidden under layers. She is adding seven new supplements to my protocol to address adrenal support as sleep has become fitful and I feel somehow too 'plugged in.' Fight or flight mode. I'll be taking a prebiotic to address the new bacteria as well as some new products from Xymogen to open detox pathways. I'm excited to be moving in a new direction. Every time we do a new test, I see the value of this approach.
Randomly throwing supplements at the body without being tested, with the hope that something might work, seems a dangerous practice.
Not terrible full-blown itchy, just enough to let me know that I was reinfected or maybe this is an allergic flare-up. This episode might have lasted longer than necessary had I immediately washed all my clothes but I got lazy and didn't wash them for a few days. Was not constantly itchy, but found I'd get itchy at odd intervals, sometimes once a day, sometimes not for days at a time and sometimes for a mere few seconds or so.
I am putting a garden in upstate and often have my hands in the soil (without gloves) and have found that I am fine.
The only itching I've got is from the occasional mosquito bite (and yes, these are real mosquitoes). Now, instead of direct application of GSE I brush my teeth twice, once with toothpaste and once with a clean brush that has two drops of GSE on it. Note that I have been letting my supplements run out in the last few months because I needed a break from taking approx. I wonder if the return to itchiness had something to do with my letting down my guard and not watching my pH. After the first day of swimming, I noticed small circular red blotches appear under the skin of my calves and thought, uh-oh, here comes trouble. I FINALLY have a microscope again (it was replaced after more than 7 months at the manufacturer!).
I had a few breakthrough 'papercut lesions' on the hands which I don't know what to make of. I stopped the Ormus because I wanted to document F-6, which has gotten quite a buzz in the Morgellons community. I still have 1.5 bottles left and intend to take it in a few months feeling I didn't give it a proper shot. For now, I want to concentrate on doing one therapy at a time, so I can really be sure what each does. October 17, 2011: Began using F-6 and have started a new link documenting that experience including photos showing what is emerging from the skin.
I'm going to take it slow with this product as I don't want to have any major herxheimer episodes.
Caroline Carter, A healthcare worker that has Morgellons and works with ozone therapy (and who made her Morgellons worse with ozone saunas) said she cannot even be around it anymore.
I have since talked with another person that had strong outbreaks from doing an ozone sauna.
Ozone therapy is typically great for cancer, AIDS and herpes, but for this disease might make us worse. There seems to be improvement to the hair which feels stronger and seems to be falling out less.
A lot of "debris" is coming up through the skin, fibers, black particles, granules and many more fibers then ever seen before. A week and a half later I ate some quinoa with my lunch and two hours later had 3 oatmeal cookies (oatmeal, walnuts, carob chips, baking soda, vanilla). This forage into complex carbs was unusual for me.While eating the cookies I started to itch. By the third cookie, I was having full-blown symptoms of itching, stinging and biting sensations (no crawling, thank God!). The fact that it came on with such force and was related to food, makes me think that Morgellons counts among it's causes a hyper-allergic reaction to food. In this case, I don't really know what specific ingredient triggered the reaction.By eliminating carbs again, symptoms quieted down. I am noticing flare-ups of the arthritis in my foot which had so improved at the beginning of my treatment (but I kill my feet dancing one night a week, so that could play into this).
The ones I can visually see without a scope are bigger then I've had before but there is no increase in the amount I generally see with my scope in the skin. Will keep you posted of new developments.I've noticed that when it's very hot (93-97 degrees) and my skin is exposed to the air, I have more sensations on my arms. It's not unusual to feel a single pin prick sensation on my left upper arm, often I'll feel the same type of prick mirrored in the same spot on right arm sometime later, as if they were somehow linked.The other day on my bike I felt as if I hot poker were being pressed momentarily to my arm. When I looked down, there were three distinct tract marks in that spot, about a half, to an inch long that hadn't been there before.
Since having Morgellons, it feels like the skin is no longer a reliable friend but is capable of erratic changes suddenly. They took about 5 days to disappear.?September 27, 2012 • Live blood microscopyJust posted a new link with photos of my recent session with Rick Panson, a microbiologist and healthy body coach who did a live blood and dried blood microscopy and gave me additional guidance for my health. It's a bird's eye view into the system, giving a fuller, deeper understanding of what's going on  then just looking at lab results—although lab tests have their place! In the next two weeks I get more testing done so will post those results when in. There were many problems with the blood.
We are in a seasonal shift and my fingers have had a few tiny papercut lesions since the change began.Started the protocol Oct. Beginning with one pill a day of capyrilic acid with one pill olive leaf extract and 1 tsp. The L-glutamine is supposed to strengthen the gut lining and prevent leaky gut syndrome caused by the yeast die-off.
Will stay on this for a few days and slowly double the dosage, then determine where to go from there. 16, 2012 Went back to Rick Panson for another live blood analysis and posted the photos under my last blood microscopy.
This is encouraging for all of you who wonder how long it will take to knock back candida and even if our protocols are working. Rick recommended Candex and Nancy told me she loved the product except now they are adding corn to Candex (and it's unknown if it's GMO corn), so she is no longer recommending it. Adrenal system had a number of markers indicating a lot of stress to the system, very low levels of vitamins C and B's, four different pathogenic bacteria showed up—Helicobacter Pylori was high, Clostridia, E. Kreb cycle needs support. Heavy metals hair test—all toxic metals were down except arsenic which went up with cadmium. Lead which was extremely high on my first test showed a considerable decrease as well as silver but lots more chelation ahead. It's been 2 years since I started using supplements to pull the metals out and I think it will take a couple more years of work. The process is slow but steady which is a good thing because I think if the body released too much metal into the system at once there would be negative impact on the health. Nancy pointed out that lead and cadmium are antagonistic to calcium absorption and bone health, so seeing this rise in cadmium and knowing I still have too high levels of lead makes me think that I might have to give up the painting at some point or switch mediums rather than compromise bone health. The heavy metals test also measures "essential and other elements," (minerals) It seems as a consequence of pulling heavy metals out, the minerals have been compromised. Nancy suggested this organism is a pleomorph moving from bacteria to fungus according to favorable conditions in the body. This is the third time it's changed. Feb 3, 2013 Just an acknowledgment that I just passed my 3rd anniversary since getting sick with Morgellons. The only time I really have symptoms is when I really mess up on diet (itchiness will start) or when ?very overheated and sweating from physical exertion like dancing, where it sometimes feels like needle pinpricks are sticking my skin from the INSIDE out, accompanied by itchiness. Thieves is a great oil for preventing flu or when one is coming down with illness, but I am unclear if it can damage beneficial bacterias.
Stopped taking thieves after a few weeks but do still take lemon and added in lemongrass and grapefruit to my daily capsule.
Itchiness did not return. September 22, 2013 Decided to go on Stephen Buhners herbal protocol for Lyme disease (crafted from his excellent book, Healing Lyme). Although I tested negative for Lyme and feel fine, I don't trust the traditional testing one gets with their regular MD, and even though I don't think I'm dealing with Lyme, I can't discount the fact that so many Morgellons sufferers also have Borrelia and other co-infections that might be related to our disease which seem to improve with Lyme treatment. Also, his protocol addresses other issues I feel are pertinent to my health (even before Morgellons). Certainly, I see over time that my immune system is weak, and my gut reaction now to coasting is that it could be an eventual time bomb.
I'm taking Cats Claw, Sarsaparilla root (Jamaican—which I grind in my coffee grinder), Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng), Astragalus, Japanese Knotweed and Andrographis. To his formula I've added in Ashwagandha and Sweet Cinnamon (from Sri Lanka) for the brain, as well as nettles (excellent herb for trace minerals and general support of system) and Pau D'arco (fungal). I take a quarter level teaspoon of each herb (which is roughly the equivalent of one 00 capsule) added to some water and drink it down.
Surprisingly, I did not feel exhausted, although the protocol was pretty intense and caused a lot of flushing through the digestive system.
This is not a new symptom and usually happens in the first few weeks of starting any new protocol. As these breakouts have always been so minor and short-lived? (an occasional papercut lesion or what looks like a pin prick), I paid them little mind. In this case, the skin continued to break open for the duration of treatment and I had some long "scratch" marks come up as well. It seemed like the last papercut I got was deeper and for the first time I started to worry that perhaps I was giving myself a lesion problem that I might not be able to turn off.
This little spot has bothered me on occasion on and off throughout the years of my Morgellons experience, but during the Buhner protocol, it itched almost constantly. On the plus side, I could tell there was a lot of detoxification going on and all of those bitter herbs were really helpful for quelling sugar cravings. I believe I will revisit this protocol modified in the future, but for now, am taking a rest from it. Note that when I ceased treatment, the papercut and pinprick lesions stopped, although I recently had a three-inch long "scratch" appear on my leg weeks after stopping his treatment some weeks back. This was a surprise, since problems usually only show up on my hands and 3 inches is rather a statement!For the first time, the scratch resembled images I've seen for Bartonella.
There is much about it that I think is helpful, and I encourage people to study these herbs and supplements carefully, and decide for themselves if they want to incorporate them. This is a very difficult protocol and for any who have detoxification pathway issues, this could impact their health negatively. The release of toxins in a system that cannot remove them properly can be deadly, so it is important to not rush carelessly forward with something this strong.
I did feel like the protocol helped me on many levels, but I could not tolerate the heart issues with pressure on the chest, burning, and breathing difficulties.
The creator of the protocol feels that Bartonella is at the core of the Morgellons infection, and Bartonella likes to set up shop in the endothelial tissue of the heart.
Thinking this was just a severe Herxheimer reaction, I went back on the protocol but was unable to advance more than one drop of each tincture before heart and breathing issues returned with a vengeance. This time, the heart issues did not abate immediately, and it's been some weeks now in which they often come back on a low level. His original protocol (which he posted on Jenna's blog and which is now removed) did not use MSM, or Silver Sol or various other supplements. It also did not include baking soda, which is not inherently a problem, but at 2 teaspoons a day, might become one.
