I was first exposed to itchy skin parasites and Morgellons in 1994. I was pulling vines from trees in my back yard and shook loose a cloud of dust that floated down upon me. Little did I know that that cloud of dust would alter the rest of my life as I took a hot shower and thought nothing more of it. A couple days later as we visited my mother, me and my fiance noticed intense itching. Only after taking a near scalding bath did we find relief.
But the relief was short lived and within a few hours we began itching again and a day or so later we experienced intense itching and biting. Hell had just begun as we rushed to the doctor who prescribed Elemite and after we applied it, we had relief and thought we were cured. But within about four days the hell of itching and biting returned.
We soon came to know that the itchy skin parasites infected our bedding, clothing, and home. We were alarmed to realize that the itchy parasites were everywhere and we had no idea how extensive the infection was. I learned from the internet that diatomaceous earth would kill everything. We noticed tiny flying insects, that we though were mites, flying about the house and thought that they were connected to our infestation and hoped relief would be provided by using diatomaceous earth.
Soon laundering all our bedding and clothing that we wore became our daily routine along with near scalding baths two to three times a day. Every over the counter product we tried brought little relief. This resulted in more trips to the doctor. Even with skin rashes, bite marks and open sores the doctor had no answers.
My fiancee moved away and eventually solved her problem with an ice bath and using a product called liquid needles. I could never bring myself to an ice bath and the product had little effect on my itchy skin parasites. My relief came from daily massive doses of garlic.
The itchy skin parasites that eventually were thought to be Morgellons was controlling my life. Suicide was a thought that I entertained whenever I thought of never ever getting rid of them as the relief from the garlic eventually wore off.
With the coining of the word Morgellons in 2002 nearly everyone with intense itchy skin looking for solutions on the internet assumed that we all they had Morgellons. At least it was something to hang our hats on as the doctors we sought for help diagnosed us as delusional.
The advice of a friend who suggested that I look into a dietary connection saved my life. In the absence of garlic I eventually discovered through the process of elimination that certain foods put the itchy skin parasites in remission and other foods activated them. Since it was King in saving my sanity from the itchy skin parasites or Morgellons I called it the King Diet. The good news is that for hundreds of sufferers it has brought sanity back to their lives.
Around 2004 I learned of a fellow who claimed that Morgellons was a hoax and that we were all suffering from Strongyloides stercoralis which is a nematode with which he was diagnosed. And guess what? My blood tests came back positive for Strongyloides stercoralis. His claim made sense since I never had fluorescent fibers which are typical to Morgellons.
Through another sufferer of itchy skin parasites I learned of collembola also known as spring tails. They are invisible and seem to jump onto your ankles and I certainly had a lot of that going on.
Rather than claim that Morgellons is a hoax, it became obvious that there are three different itchy skin parasites that have similar biting and sever itchy skin symptoms and the amazing fact was that sufferers of all three types responded to the King Diet. Having been in contact with hundreds of other itchy skin parasites sufferers through the internet I learned a lot about Morgellons and the other parasites. I also consulted a couple of the recognized physicians who treated Morgellons sufferers for Lyme disease which I also had along with a protozoan infection and eventually published everything in an e-book which goes into disinfection and bathing protocols, diet and both medical and alternative approaches.
