This is a message of Hope because, years later, Ramona is still 100% Recovered from both Lyme disease and her nightmare battle with Morgellons disease.
Morgellons is best understood as an Environmental Illness, but this syndrome continues to present some of the weirdest symptoms ever before seen.
Unfortunately, many folks seeking medical treatment are quickly diagnosed with a 'mental condition' and dismissed to live with the sufferings of a madman; because of this, it is highly recommended you Do Not Call It Morgellons!
It is wisest to refer to this as a Hyper-toxic condition, similar to Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (which is a recognized health condition).
This was the same challenge for early Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Epstein-Baar sufferers who were told it was all in their head...but today the disease-causing factors for these health conditions are well documented.
Some of the Morgellons symptoms reported include a multitude of strange skin disorders and rashes which may 'shed' different materials like fibers and specks, or intense itching, stinging, and biting feelings from some kind of apparent parasite or body bugs.
There isn't a single underlying source identified for this disease which adds to the mis-diagnosis from healthcare practitioners which in turn fuels the fearful opinions of many who suffer.
The first steps to Successful Recovery are to become Educated about the detox protocols which can effectively cleanse the body of the various toxins, nano-materials, heavy metals, chemical poisons (including conventional medicines), GMOs, breast implants, surgeries, and cheap food products that accumulate and cause weird skin reactions, stress, and cell death.
There are a great deal of overlapping causes and solutions between nearly all conditions tagged as an Environmental Illness; MCS, CFS, Mold sickness, allergies, and a huge list of auto-immune disorders that don't quite fit in the typical clinical impressions doctors use to diagnosis.
Probably the greatest challenge for those who suffer is the unfortunate fact that the CDC and most of the Medical Community do not recognize Morgellons.
In their 2012 update, the CDC reports that most folks seeking treatment for Morgellons disease need mental health treatment because there is no physical basis for their presented symptoms.
Their official position is that tens of thousands of people are apparently clawing at their skin and hair in some type of self mutilation psychosis...so do yourself a favor and Do Not refer to this as Morgellons until there is some sanity on the other side of the medical desk!
So What Do We Know About Morgellons?
Theories range from being a stealth virus (Dr. Martin), Advanced Nano Material Syndrome (Dr. Staninger), toxic poisoning from dental work (Dr. Amin), Mercury poisoning (Joe Kehler), Agrobacteria (Randy Wymore) and many, many more toxic agents.
Trisha Springstead RN, refers to Morgellons as 'hyper-toxicity' that includes a lifetime of build up from all the chemical toxins in our food, medicines, and environment and at the top of her list is plastics, heavy metals, and toulene.
Remember when seeking medical advice about a strange skin or hair condition, do yourself a huge a favor and DO NOT use the term Morgellons.
The list of Morgellons symptoms is simply a guide and is in no way conclusive.
Morgellons’ lesions, fibers and hairs have been identified as advanced nano materials by Dr. Staninger. Other field practitioners are reporting a direct, toxic relationship between heavy metals, dental work, pharmaceutical medicines, and Genetically Modified Organisms and Foods; therefore, the possibilities and presentation of symptoms may be endless.

The medical definition of Delusional Parasitosis:
"Delusional parasitosis is a form of psychosis or false belief, a "loss of contact with reality".
Unfortunately, because the AMA and medical community rely on the CDC for its official reports on any type of illness, the authority channels we rely on for information, diagnosis, and treatment are still in the dark about Morgellons. Many practitioners in the medical community actually categorize Morgellon/Morgellons as delusional parasitosis as soon as a patient mentions the word. Read more about Delusional Parasitosis.
Even though there is little confirmed evidence within the conventional and alternative medical communities, there a few health care providers that are willing to address this condition. Most are treating it as a Multiple Chemical Sensitivity condition and recommending that affected individuals begin a detox and re-build program to target the many toxins associated with a 'hyper-toxic' condition.
Within the community of sufferers, many report testing for high levels of heavy metals, have a history of using pharmaceutical medicines, toulene, plastics, nano materials, contact with genetically modified organisms used in the 'green pesticide industry' and other unexplained body bug vectors, exposure to chem-trail and aerial spraying areas, and a confirmed diagnosis of Lyme.
