Skin rashes and lesions that never heal, skin parasites that itch relentlessly, and Lyme disease–are all connected. The scary thing is that these skin parasites can be caught simply by trying on clothes at any clothing store, sitting in an infected airplane seat. The real disappointing news is that doctors can’t diagnose them nor do they know how to treat them. Truth is that the CDC (Center for Disease Control in Atlanta) doesn’t even recognize their existence or know what they are. These skin parasites are like an episode out of the Twilight Zone—a real topic for a Sci Fi movie.
In the mid 90’s while doing some yard work, I pulled a vine from a tree. As the vine broke loose I noticed a cloud of dust descending upon me. I didn’t think much of what happened, dragged the vine into the woods and took a shower. Four days later while visiting my mother, my significant other and I began itching relentlessly from head to toe.
We took a very hot bath at which point we thought the itching gone. Not so fast. Hours later we were again in the tub. We then tried every topical lotion or powder we had in the house with no improvement—a hot near scalding bath was our only hope for relief.
The next day my significant other went to a dermatologist. He couldn’t identify anything and prescribed Elimite. We both used it and experienced immediate relief which lasted about four days and then once again all hell broke. In addition to the itching, I began having rashes and bites over most of my body.
I went to a dermatologist who also couldn’t identify the cause of the itching. She did a biopsy from one of the lesions and sent me for blood tests. She prescribed an antibiotic which provided immediate relief and I thought my nightmare over. That didn’t last very long for four nights later I was awakened with crawling and biting sensations all over my body.
We looked for visual signs but all we found was shinny specs that reflected in the sunlight all over our bodies. We also noticed small bugs flying in the house.
An we came to realize that not only were the bugs on our bodies but all over our home–in our rugs, bedding, and furniture. It was one depressing realization from which we received no direction from either of our doctors.
All types of bug spray and insect bombs were used in the house to no avail. I learned of diatomaceous earth and dusted it all over the house. Outside, For outside I bought an insecticide to kill chiggers and treated the lawn and sprayed all the shrubs and trees.
I experimented with garlic and curry in our food and found relief from consuming garlic. For our clothes and bedding, we laundered daily using either bleach or ammonia.
But by the time we were gaining control of our environment we ended up infecting my mother and my significant other’s sister and her husband with skin parasites.
Eventually the massive doses of garlic stopped working and I was back to square one. In search of help I consulted a half dozen other physicians only to be prescribed various types of sulfa antibiotics or be told that nothing was wrong with me.
I would have gone to China for the cure if there were one. A year and a half after I was infected, a friend suggested diet as a possible approach. I had nothing to lose and took her advice and through a very strict elimination diet was able to minimize my symptoms. I started by taking a very hot bath to kill any adult parasites on my body. Made sure my bedding and clothing were disinfected as well as the furniture I used. Then I ate nothing but eggs made with butter–no bread.
I was surprised to discover that I had no reactions and within a few days didn’t have to launder my bedding and clothing every day.
Over the course of several years I discovered which foods activate parasites and which foods keep them in remission. I put all my research and findings in an e-book titled Soothing the Itch Within and the Diet to Control It. It covers bathing and disinfection techniques, medications that help and medications that don’t help.
I learned that the skin parasites are any one of several varieties–Collembola (Spring Tails), Strongyloides, and Morgellons… The good news is that the diet works will all of the parasites mentioned.
The ebook also researches other remedies such as Rifing, bentonite clay…
