Dear Ted,

I have been reading your posts on Earth clinic for some time now. I am reaching out to you because I am so scared and no doctors treat Morgellons here in California and I believe I may have it. I hope you will be willing and able to help me.

I was diagnosed with scabies in Jan 2014, but doctor didn't do a skin scraping, just diagnosed by visual eval. I had the characteristic burrow lines and red, pimple bumps. He gave Premethrin cr?me 5% which I also applied a week later. It seemed to work. My husband and 10 year old son also did it. Their less serious bumps went away too. Husband still has rosacea on his nose and itching on his back for which no doctor for years has really tried to figure out. Just says dry skin.

Recently, the bumps appeared on my right inner arm. Again, one that was in a line like the burrows of scabies. I had left over Premethrin and covered myself and did it a week later with a new tube from the pharmacy. Didn't have doctor look at me. During the week between Premethrin applications, we went into the hygiene mode needed for scabies and are still in it. Washing sheets daily. All sleeping in different beds. Washing clothes after one use. Putting Borax in laundry and washing and drying at high heat. Keeping laundry in plastic bag, diatomaceous earth and vacuuming a lot…

Then, I was feeling something crawling in my eye lash lines and around my bridge of my nose. I got faint brown trail line without any raised blisters on the bridge of my nose. Then, I got a sore that didn't come to surface but it was like a swelling on the side of the bridge of my nose. I think it might have been a nest.

The crawling and itching was in my hair and around my neck in the back by hairline I got some larger pimples but I think they were nests. So, I did the Borax/H202 baths twice and nothing much better. Didn't see anything in the water. I did the 2 cups bleach bath + h202 2x's. The first time I felt really good and clean and skin felt soft and smooth.

The second day, before I did the 2nd bleach bath, I exercised on the treadmill and got some itchy, angry red pimples come out on my legs, I went in the pool and Jacuzzi for a little, but the bumps kept bothering me so I ran a bath. I put 2 cups bleach, 1 c H202, and some drops of Oregano oil. This time my legs got really itchy (they had already been itchy, but got worse), so I scratched them underwater back and forth. Then, I saw all sorts of weird debris in the water and all different shapes and colors. I got really scared because I had read about Morgellons in my scabies research.

I am not taking any more baths due to fear of this repeating. I don't know if it was a good thing to have that stuff come out of me.

I am taking 1/4 baking soda in 4 oz H20 2 x/day. I am not consuming coffee or alcohol or any carbs now. Just meat, eggs, veggies, a little dairy.

I also take:

  • Vit C 1000mg every few hours
  • Garlic Kyolic for Immune support 2 pills-3x/day
  • Sovereign Silver
  • Stress B complex
  • B12 sublingual
  • Mixed carotenoids
  • Alfalfa
  • Alpha Lipoic acid
  • Bio-Sil drops in water
  • Plus Some other supplements like antioxidants.

My current condition after doing this for a week and just having put on the 2nd Premethrin cr?me yesterday is that I have a few itches in my head and body once in a while. My legs are still showing the signs of all that came out of them 3 days ago and have the red bumps, but now they don't itch. My arms are practically all clear. The crawling around my eyes in basically gone. I thought I felt it once when I leaned forward and pressure built up around my eye from gravity.

Now, though, I do feel things moving under the skin in my feet and ankles like things are landing on them lightly. I never see anything when this happens.

I am having very low energy, dry mouth, and get winded going up stairs. I feel also that I am not sharp in my mind, I think due to low energy.

I am worried because I don't want a neurological condition to develop. I have a beautiful son to finish raising and life to live. I also am a psychologist and want to keep being able to help my patients. I am 49 years old.

I thought maybe I was getting so tired yesterday and today because I'm taking too many supplements and vitamins and so extremely thirsty because having difficulty processing them through liver/kidneys. So, I thought I should reduce. But, then I also considered if this herxheimer response? I also had a dull headache this morning and yesterday.

I want to improve my immune system and know that exercise is needed and I've not been doing it for a few years now and have gained weight. 5'5” and 190lbs. As a therapist, I just sit for hours with my clients. Should I try to keep exercising even though I currently have this very low energy?

Thank you for all you have done and in advance for any direct help you can provide me now. You are truly a gift to this world and I know you are extremely busy. I wouldn't bother you knowing this, but due to my desperation, I am reaching out. If you have a contact in California or US of someone like yourself that you can refer me to, that would also be appreciated.

Most Sincere Regards, S...

Just wondering what effect Green or Red LED supposed to have. Does it stop the breeding cycle? I have the green LED but worry it might drive the bugs deeper into the scalp, ear canal, the skin, etc.

The cure rate for Morgellons I have seen is 100%. The problems will come back if bad diets. What I found is these nests are in the hair and eyelashes and eyebrows. Must avoid all plastics and vegetable oils. Use tetasodium EDTA solution as soaps especially as shampoo. If will get rid of most Morgellon. The nest are hidden invisibly in bathroom ceilings so must use 10 percent EDTA with ammonium chloride 10 percent mix to spray ceilings otherwise will reinfect. Always get your pH urine at 7.0 Morgellons cant survive at that pH. Something new I discovered is green LED one hour in areas of head will get rid of the rest of Morgellons applied everyday.

It is good that Morgellons come out of the body. Living ones are red, dead ones are black. The other colors are also alive. Active ones are invisible and feels like cobweb can be made visible and dead with borax, Bo peep, EDTA, and ammonium chloride solutions.

You need green LED and EDTA that eas missing. Bleach is briefly successful but these have a problem of keeping the spores of Morgellon alive. Ted"


S replies: "Thank you so very much, Ted. I really appreciate your taking the time to answer my email. I feel hopeful now and not so scared. I am searching on line for the tetrasodium EDTA and ammonium chloride. Once I do get it, I am not very mathematical and need help understanding how to combine for the body wash and the room disinfectant spray.

The nest are hidden invisibly in bathroom ceilings so must use 10 percent EDTA with ammonium chloride 10 percent mix to spray ceilings otherwise will reinfect.

Am I interpreting you correctly that if I had 100 oz of solution, 10 oz would be of ETDA and 10 oz would be of ammonium chloride and 80 oz of H2O? If ETDA is a solid how to I make a solution that is going to be liquid? Do I measure fluid oz of the powder or do I have to measure weight? And then how would I measure out the ammonium chloride?

It is really helpful when you say 1 capful or 30 drops of H202 and 1/8 Tsp of Borax in 1 liter of water.

Can you break the ETDA/ammonium chloride down into something simple like that?

"Use tetasodium EDTA solution as soaps especially as shampoo. If will get rid of most Morgellon"

For soaps and shampoos you say to use tetrasodium EDTA solution, do you mean the same solution as used for the room spray to get the nests?? I wasn't sure if that was what you intended or just EDTA on the body?

..."can be made visible and dead with borax, Bo peep, EDTA, and ammonium chloride solutions"

Lastly, just checking as to what Bo peep is?? Was that supposed to be H202?"


Ted replies: "EDTA and ammonium chloride is 10 percent by weight of water. So if water is 100 grams EDTA is 10 grams and ammonium chloride is 10 grams. Both of them are in powder. You can used the 10 percent EDTA as in soaps and shampoo. Its the same thing. If no weight measures then just 2 tablespoon of each in 1 pint water is close enough. Doesnt have to be exact. The rest of Morgellons can be rid by green LED although red LED works too but not effective.

Bo Peep is ammonia based American product used as floor cleaner. Should find in supermarket although haven't been in US for the past 30 years. Green LED should get Morgellons out around the eyes. The best alkalize scheme is sodium citrate 1/2 teaspoon in a cup of water taken at night. This should be easier to reach the target 7.0 pH."


S. replies: "Thank you Ted. My green led arrived. Can I start that treatment before having used the edta and ammonium as they haven't arrived yet? "


Ted replies: "Is fine can start green LED."


S. replies: "Ted, guidance kindly requested on use of led for head. I have a handheld device so have to move it around my head to get all of head.

1. How long should I keep it on any one spot?

2 do I use the pulse mode or constant ?light mode or both?

3? I Have long hair, will it go through hair to scalp or must I section hair and get underneath it?

4 for face, manufacturers caution against using on eyes but since the morgellons is all around my eye I want to use light as you suggested on my eye. Any precautions other than keeping eyes closed? Time limit? Constant movement of device? Or, hover over eye?"


Ted replies: "Pulse work better. You can try both if you want. Close the eyes and hover around it. It takes 30 minutes of closed eyes. If have green LED that is large so no need to keep moving. Does not penetrate hair but some morgellons around the hair. Better results with EDTA there. If too bright get them further from the closed eyes. The rest just wash eyes areas with EDTA, closed eyes of course.

What is green LED and where do you get it? Ted, do you have a web site?

Replied by K

The green led lights. Would a string of Christmas lights work. taking them from the box as a clump, not unwinding them.

Our family of 4 all suffers from the same condition. After a lot of research my son recently discovered that aloe ferox gel applied to the skin and a 50/50 solution of magnesium oil and colloidal silver sprayed on afterwards will cause the white lipids or cysts to emerge from the skin during soft massaging. The only problem is the cysts seem to become more and more as you try to clean up your face and scalp. I have lost about 50% of my hair already. We also add lavender and/or oreganum oil to the mix.

The source of the disease is the stomach. it is a parasite that lives in the stomach. if one keeps the PH of the stomach basic, the parasite has a hard time to survive. it cannot absorb the food from the stomach well if PH in the stomach is basic.

I can go on a fast for a day and rid it from my skin but it comes back due to its location in the stomach. the fibers and black specs are the eggs and larvae from the parasite that lives in the stomach.

Are there ANY recognized medical institutions or organization s that are willing to admit the ailment of Morgellons? I find it curious that there are so many funds dedicated to research on this subject and yet the medical field deals with those afflicted with humiliation and belittling comments claiming paraphycosis or scabbies that doesn't respond to treatment ect. I also find it interesting to note that the similarities to the outbreak of aids and morgellons with respect to indicating it has something to do with the ammune system making us feel somehow responsible and dirty. There is also the question of evidence. The double standard infuriates me. If we keep records and samples including video, we are obsessing but if we just go with symptoms we are hallucinating. In my case I'm 52 and with the same doctor practically my whole life. As a child beginning somewhere around the age of ten and diagnosed with fybromialgia at eleven, I have horrible constant migraine. I again was sent through the theoropy route and couldn't get help. My doctor never denied me my dignity and always gave me the benefit of the doubt. The migraines finally were realized when the epidemoid cyst in my brain next to my brain stem exploded and was discovered after three months in hospital at the age of twenty two culminating in two craniotomies and still no complete solution. I only give this situation in order to show the weight of the medical field as a way of comparison in his behaviour. He dismissed me although I only went to see him twice and the only video I have was from a 40 dollar tablet from Walmart. He suggested I buy a better camera. I am a single parent of a twelve year old on a disability. The week I went into hospital about my head I had seen him three times and been at emergency four times for mophine. I have never used recreational drugs or alcohol. He believed me then after years of never looking for attention or wanting to be "diagnosed" Then as with now I am only asking for support to deal with the symptoms and do the best I can on my own. I believe medicine will come up with answers in due time but until then maybe there is a way for those of us with symptoms to have support from somewhere with the courage to accept that maybe there just aren't any answers yet. If there could be a place for us to go as evidently encouraging one another is only fueling our phycosis, hopefully those of us that are suffering can have some quality of life.

Blessings and prayers to all,

Karen: Thanks for sharing your story. Myself, among many other people have similar or worse stories.

It's a really big topic but to be brief there is plenty of reasons to simply keep natural and pharmaceutical or Natural or Allopathic schools of thought or practice segregated. There is simply too much differences. On-the-other-hand, there is one item in particular that is gaining both as alternative & conventional as the uses & benefits are so varied, is Cannabis (which is another big topic not easily covered in short here).

Karen, I have been there. Morgellons is related to Lyme disease so it chronic fatigue and fibromyalga. Look into yourself. With no help from allopathic docs and so- called specialist I have been healing myself with salt/c protocol. Be warned though, you must manage the herxheimer reaction you get when you start killing the parasites. Research and you will see for yourself. All the best.

If you have symptoms of morgellons, you have Lyme disease. It's that simple. Treat the Lyme disease and the morgellons--which is a Lyme co-infection, along with babesia, bartonella etc, will dissipate. Ted's remedies, along with antibiotics administered by a Lyme literate doctor, are the answer. Read Dr. Richard Horowitz' book and the section on Morgellons. Further delay is not the answer.

if I am afflicted with this as it seems it is but doctors keep telling me it is impetigo, are my children aflicted as well?

I was treated for borrelia at a clinic in Germany and that's where I learned I had Morgellen's. I feel absolutely awful (I've been home four weeks) with fatigue, inability to concentrate, big time anxiety, etc. Taking numerous supplements that are for detox and rebuilding the system. How long am I likely to remain in this very uncomfortable state?

40% LACTIC ACID is referred to by some Morgellons sufferers as an effective source for external use.

Hi Ted.

I believe I might have these parasites. Same story as above, it started with scabies but it turned out to be more parasites, including internal. I have rid myself of the internal ones through diet, now I am dealing with a sort of bug/scabies that bytes and it is black. And another one that lives in my hair and feasts on my face as soon as I put my head down.

Tetrasodium EDTA is impossible to find. Only shipped from abroad and costs 100s of euros.

What other suggestions do you have to eradicate them?

I am using an ozone machine, it made a difference in eradicating other parasites from the environment, but I have no idea how to rid myself of these black ones and the ones in my hair.

Please help.

EC: So sorry. Ted had a stroke a while back and is unable to reply.
