Kathy G - Victory over Morgellons, Lyme and MRSA!

My name is Kathy. I am a Registered Nurse and a survivor of Lyme, MRSA, and Morgellons Disease. Not only have I survived, I’m thriving again! I don’t feel or look my age, and I feel young, vibrant and healthy. I now live a life restored, and I am once again seeking my full potential.

My story is filled with many things, some of which if I told you, you wouldn’t believe. As I look back now, I could hardly believe them myself if they didn’t happen to me directly. When I first came down with Morgellons, I lived in a rural area that got heavily sprayed. There were farms all around me. I’m not sure, but I believe the constant exposure to pesticides must have weakened my system so much that it threw open the door for this disease, and others to come into my body.

It seems I became a magnet for insects, as I repeatedly got stung by wasps and other bugs. I’m not sure of the vector, but I got sick and I didn’t know why. I was very frightened because I just kept getting worse and worse. I sought help from infectious specialists, but they had no answers. These were highly trained, intelligent people. They knew I was very sick, but they could not determine what was wrong with me, so they followed the medical establishment’s standard of care and assumed that I must be delusional.

As a medical professional, you cannot believe how frustrating it is to be sick and be told “it’s all in your head; you’re making it up”! I knew I was dealing with an unknown illness, and I knew it could be potentially life threatening. I cried a lot. I was in the depths of hell. The brain fog was so bad I could barely function. I was exhausted all the time. I couldn’t string two sentences together. I itched horribly, and had these weird fibers coming out of my body. One day a nurse friend mentioned “Well Kathy, maybe you might have Morgellons. It’s kind of controversial, but you should look into it.”

Finally, I thought I might be able to put a name to the gruesome suffering I was enduring every day. Although I didn’t know it at the time, my path was being led to Mel Friedman and to his website, which offered me hope, knowledge, acceptance and the opportunity to mend my broken body. Through the website and the never-ending love and support offered to me through Mel and others associated with his protocol, my health has been restored.

The road wasn’t easy but I kept on keeping on. I changed my diet. I changed my attitude. I changed my life for the better. Through the support of Mel and others on the site, I educated myself on how to get better.

I noticed my energy started improving as soon as I went on the complete protocol. As days turned into weeks and months, I began to really turn a corner and I began to heal. I later found out through testing that I had Lyme as well as MRSA. With the comprehensive support of Mel’s protocol, I have now been healed of them all. You cannot heal one without healing the other. Such is the beauty and power of the human body when it is given access to all the right nutrients.

As a nurse, I work in an environment where people are constantly exposed to all types of things. I myself never catch anything since restoring integrity to my immune system and my bioterrain. When I was very sick, bugs used to dive bomb me as I would run to my car. Now I’m not bothered by anything. I never even catch a cold!

I believe so much in this protocol I still take it all because they are wonderful supplements that keep me feeling young! I am happy to report that I am 11/2 years symptom free now and can once again spend time enjoying my family and my life. Had I not found Mel and his protocol on that fateful day, I’m not sure where I would be. I’m forever thankful to Mel, his website, his protocol and the people behind it.


Nicole - New Life For Grateful Single Mom

Hello Everyone,

I would like to say to those who have been affected by Morgellons directly or indirectly... there is hope!!!

My son and I were infected with Morgellons the summer of 2010. I was 29 at the time and my son was 4. I was the first to show symptoms. The symptoms were incredibly intense - biting, pinching sensations, and extreme purging, especially at the scalp, neck and jaw line area.

I was a newly single mom with no income, on welfare, with a child and myself affected with this plague that no one seemed to understand. The medical community absolutely failed me. They institutionalized me and pumped me full of anti psychotic drugs against my will. I realized at that time the more fear I felt, the worse it got physically, and it was negatively affecting the way I was perceived by physicians. That's when I turned to God and asked Him to turn my fear into FAITH!

I gradually started an anti candida diet. I knew fungus was a component, so I began self treating with probiotics and oregano oil , saunas too. I did that for a few years and it did help but it it wasn't enough! My son was getting worse. I broke down and prayed and asked God to take control.

What did God do you ask???? He led me to Mel, his website, and the He Cures All Foundation. There I found my angels on earth; a community of beautiful souls, strangers, who have supported me and my son in every way imaginable! I emailed Mel of my financial situation, basically begging for help to save my baby. What did he do??? Called me almost immediately offering help through the Foundation to support us with the protocol!! He knew my fear, my anxiety and he EMPOWERED me to work toward recovery!!!!

My son and I have been on the protocol for almost two years now and although we are not yet 100% recovered, we are both in an infinitely better place. I am very comfortable in my body now. No pinching, biting, stinging… limited purging, but not in the scalp anymore. My son is soo much better … very limited purging on occasion.

Thanks to the He Cures All Foundation, I have been able to move forward and work toward my independence. I went back to school and now I am working full time to support my family!!! ;). I honestly don't know where we would be without the foundation. My mental state was really being affected and to be honest I don't think I would be here if I didn't have the loving support of Mel and this community.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: To those who contribute to the He Cures All Foundation, you don't know us, but we love you!!! You are our angels on earth. To be able to take care of my son, to give him these life saving supplements is God sent, the greatest blessing of my life! You are saving lives!! I know first hand!! The protocol is so extensive. It rebuilds on so many levels!!

For those of you who are just beginning this journey, it takes time to get to the finish line and some of us take a little longer than others. Please don't give up hope!! Have faith… align with your good. Don't give up… God is always there for you, supporting you in your fear or supporting you in your faith! Choose faith!!! Believe you are healed and watch the results!!! You'll see miracles happen!!!

Trust me - You have found the right place!

They know what you are going through, even if no one else does!

There is support here!!!

My eternal love to you)))))))))))

Yours in spirit,


Peter - "Love is not selfish."

"Morgellons is a devastating disease that happens suddenly and then overwhelms like a flood. " ..... "It is said that love is not selfish."

Today, whenever I exhibit joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, and self control, I am spreading the healing fruits provided to me through the resources and support of the He Cures All Foundation. The foundation's message is one of love. It's promise is to rescue and revive. It's purpose is to provide hands to heal, ears to listen, and hearts to share. The foundation heals the wounded from the deepest burdens while in the throws of devastating illness.

My story is a simple one. I became sick with Morgellons in January of 2012. In June of that same year, after exhausting all of my financial resources pursuing traditional treatments, I was still very sick. Crushed under the financial weight, I could no longer pull myself up. After posting a cry for help, I received a call from Mel Friedman at the foundation. I remember thinking to myself...."this web site is responding with a personal callback?" I truly believed in that moment that I would get well. It was powerful. Where else would someone actually reach out to me with a phone call?

Later I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Friedman, and words cannot describe the assurance I felt through this vibrant and youthful man whose once riddled body now reflected strength and health. That same day the Foundation provided me a doctor who successfully treats Morgellons.

When I was without help from friends, relatives, neighbors, or professional peers, Mel and the foundation stepped in and became my advocate and mentor. In the last 24 months, the foundation has helped replace the weight of grief and pain with the resources needed to beat the disease.

Today, as I write this statement, I am almost in complete remission. What an amazing gift! I now understand that we are all part of the human family and that you discover your own worth when you give to those who need it most. To support the He Cures All Foundation is to bring forth hope to the distraught, strength to the weak, and solace to the afflicted.

What does the foundation really represent to me ? I think the words of St. Francis of Assisi capture it best:

"Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance. Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor vexation. Where there is poverty and joy, there is neither greed nor avarice. Where there is peace and meditation, there is neither anxiety nor doubt."

My deepest thanks,

Hi All!

I wanted to share a bit of my story in hopes that it will help others. Last summer my family and I were hit by this terrible disease called Morgellons. I was shocked to say the least. My youngest son was diagnosed with epilepsy in 2009 and then in 2010 with leukemia.

For us, Morgellons came at a time when we should have been celebrating my 10 year old son ending his 3 1/2 year cancer battle, but instead of celebrating we were lost, confused and did not know what to do. After 3 months of suffering and no help from doctors, I came upon Mel's website. I felt so relieved to finally have answers and to know that I wasn't alone.

I emailed Mel and that's where our miracle began. Like so many before me, I got a phone call from Mel. I was given advice to read, read and read some more, and that's just what I did. I was put in touch with the most caring and loving people I've ever known. We began what seemed an impossible task of overhauling our diet, and now its second nature for us to eat healthy.

We started on Mel's protocol in August of 2013 and started seeing results almost immediately. I was so heartbroken watching my boy who had already suffered so long have to face yet another life threatening challenge. I was unsure that this could help him, as he looked and felt so bad. His blood test results didn't look promising at first, then after a few months we saw big strides in his health. He went from no appetite and resistant to the diet change, to turning his nose up to anything not healthy and teaching his peers about the impotence of eating healthy.

My son went from not being able to take a walk around the block, to running so fast that I couldn't keep up with him. His blood tests went from not so promising, to that of any normal healthy child. He recently had his appointment with his oncologist and for the first time, we were given 2 months in between appointments, the day I thought would never come! Finally, he had his testing done for his epilepsy and they did not see any seizure activity. What an amazing day for us!

The rest of my family and I are also doing so much better. The many health issues we had before starting the protocol have now become a thing of the past. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the website, the He Cures All Foundation, Mel, John, Peter and all those who have been an integral part us getting our lives back. I'm not sure without this help that we would be where we are today.

They say the lord works in mysterious ways, and I couldn't agree more. Getting Morgellons has given us a greater understanding of food and environmental issues that cause chronic illness. We are now armed with the knowledge it takes to live in these uncertain times. My faith has been restored and my relationship with God is better than its ever been. I hope that whomever reads this finds hope and knows that this protocol does work, and for so much more than Morgellons.

Be blessed,

Amber & family

Ellen - "If I can get better, I believe anyone can."

My name is Ellen. I post on various threads on Mel’s site and on my thread, "A New Warrior from MA".

After getting very sick with Morgellons in August/ September of 2012 and after a year on Mel’s protocol, I can confidently report that I am symptom free. Others new to this disease need to hear stories with a positive outcome to give them hope to push on. I have said this repeatedly - there is nothing special about me. If I can get better, I believe anyone can. Everyone's body is different, so it will take different amounts of time for each of us, but believe that you will get well too. Curing myself of this disease wasn’t easy, but now that I have been through hell, I think I can tackle any health issue that comes along. I'm a different person today – hopefully a better, stronger, wiser person.

I don’t know what initially infected me, but in July of 2012 I got some bites that were very large and itchy, and after spending thousands on pest companies trying to rid my house of insects, I slowly cleaned my environment on my own. I took out my carpeting and now have just tile and wood. In the beginning I washed my clothes, sheets, floors and surfaces every day. I assume that I killed every living thing in my house except for me. Now I can do sheets once a week and can clean the house less often to maintain it. I also ran a dehumidifier and set it at 46%. Supposedly mold and some bugs don’t thrive unless the air is more humid than that.

My daughter, who is a scientist with a PHD from Columbia University, found Mel’s site while researching my condition. My symptoms included: lots of black specks, white, salt-like specks, some crazy colored fibers, low body temperature, a horrible red rash on my neck and chest, tiny, scaly bumps on my legs and ankles, terrible head itching, cuts that wouldn’t heal, large, round bruises and a constant feeling of being nauseous and dizzy. We were both looking at bird mite sites, bed bug forums, everything - but never got to the cause of the infestation. The only thing I found in my house was fungal gnats (identified by one of the pest companies.) I will never forget when she said, “Mom, I think you have this thing called Morgellons." I had come to the same conclusion from my searching online and was terrified. I began to get my documents in order for my family in case I got any sicker.

Armed with information and encouragement from Mel’s site and the community surrounding his protocol, I now had a plan. I went cold turkey and eliminated all sugars, flour, dairy and acidic foods, felt better within a few weeks and dramatically better after starting the Logos Nutritionals supplements and MMS. The reason I started on the protocol and stuck with it religiously was because I was feeling like I was living a nightmare and I had nothing to lose. I knew I couldn't continue the way I was. I stayed close to my loved ones if only by email and phone, and came to a better appreciation of life. I didn’t know, and still don’t know if I was contagious, but I spent a lot of time by myself that Fall. Now I realize it gave me the opportunity to rest, which is vital to getting your health back.

I was lucky I could keep my part-time job, and to have supportive family and friends. I was also careful, however, who I chose to confide in. My PCP doctor did all the tests (blood work, heavy metals, metabolic series) I requested, but then asked that I see a psychiatrist. As a professional in Human Services, I was angry and insulted, but replied in a cheerful voice, "Sure!" I have since changed doctors.

This disease taught me to be patient with others, and we need go easy on ourselves too. To think we have brought this on because of something we did is pointless. I have no idea how I got sick, but because of unknown parasites, and the toxins in our food and environment, I believe everyone is at risk. I was not sick with any other disease or with a weakened immune system, but I did have to go on two rounds of antibiotics that summer for an infection.

I couldn’t sleep in the beginning due to the fear and also due to the constant itching. I got a prescription for Ambien which gave me terrible side effects. I weaned myself off of it after two months, and by that point the itching had subsided, so I was able to fall asleep.

Some things that helped me...

For breakfast I have an egg with an English muffin (Ezekiel flourless) with organic butter and either a detox tea or Red Rooibus tea. I sometimes make omelettes with 2 eggs and add vegetables and a nondairy/non-soy cheese. I alternate that with Ezekiel cereal with almond/coconut milk, unsweetened coconut, ground flax, chia seeds, and cinnamon and Stevia to taste. Sometimes I add berries. Or make a smoothie with those ingredients and add organic spinach or kale.

For lunch I have a salad and I try to put 5 items in each time as well as a protein. So that may be lettuce, peppers, tomato, cucumber, red onion, cabbage, broccoli, avocado, or whatever veggies I have. I add cooked chicken, quinoa, or an egg on top. My favorite dressing is lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Minute Maid makes a lemon juice with nothing added, in the freezer section of stores and it saves money.

For dinner I have soups or fish, chicken or once in a while grass-fed beef. I like to roast a variety of vegetables with olive oil. I use a lot of onion, garlic, cayenne, curry powder, cinnamon and other spices. I never felt I had to eat raw everything, and I got better with a variety of cooking and preparing. I do try to get everything organic and local, but I'm not obsessive about it. I just do the best I can. I'm kind of an ADD cook, so I never follow recipes but just try to prepare foods I like and adapt them to the protocol. Not always easy, but doable. I have used coconut flour, almond flour and brown rice flour in recipes as well as pastas made from brown rice and quinoa. I think the most important thing is to avoid white flours, white rice or anything that we convert into sugar.

I never used coconut oil in my cooking because I couldn't get used to the taste, but I do use it on my face every day. Mostly I use olive oil to cook with. When I wanted a treat I ate Kind bars - the dark chocolate and sea salt have only 5 grams of sugar and I felt like I was eating a candy bar. In between meals, I snacked on almonds, too. Nuts are very filling. And for more calories, I made guacamole and ate it with chips called Beanitos, also available everywhere. They are made with lentils and black beans, are GMO free and really tasty. I also try to have hummus and tabouli on hand to snack on. When I started to add fruit to my diet I relied on berries and apples. I bake apples with cinnamon and have that for dessert.

I know the foods and supplements can be costly, but here's what I did. I paid the bills I had to pay and got behind in others. I got a loan from a family member. I am still in debt but now I have my health back. Please don't let finances keep you from getting what you need to get well. Think about who in your life can help you, then make a plan to pay them back later when you can. For me, financial support from the He Cures All Foundation was not an option (although I certainly received a lot of loving assistance from Mel), but there is always a way if we are determined enough.

I took the supplements and MMS EXACTLY as described in the protocol page. For the record, I NEVER mixed protocols. If you do, there is no way to know what is helping and what is not. As for the MMS, I never got the nausea and GI herx. What did happen to me is that at 15 drops I got a terrible headache and dizzy and felt like I had to lie down. The feeling that it was unbearable passed after a little while. I was keeping a diary so I was pretty tuned in to my body at that point. I knew I was at my max. So even though the MMS seems scary, I think it is absolutely key to getting rid of this disease. I was fearful of it, but now I know that I didn't need to be.

As for cleaning, I used Borax, Arm and Hammer laundry detergent, and Kleen Green in my laundry and dried everything on high heat for a long time. I sprayed Kleen Green in my car, my boots and shoes, on the insides of my coats until I felt that I had that under control (after a few months). I washed my floor with a Swiffer and some type of cleaner that was non-toxic. I changed these periodically. I showered with Dr.Bonner’s soap and washed my hair with peppermint or tea tree products found in my health food store. After showering, I used unscented mineral oil with a few drops of tea tree, lavender, peppermint or neem oil on my skin.

These are things that worked for me, and I am not suggesting they should be followed by everyone, but I did spend a lot of time and money on a lot of products before I eliminated stuff that didn’t work. I never used Diatomaceous Earth, and think it could do harm.

In one of my first posts I wrote the following quote...

"We should ready ourselves to meet trials: the small and big ones of each day. They are the trials which we cannot help but encounter from one day to the next. It is a matter of realizing that God permits them not to discourage us, but so we can grow spiritually as we overcome them. There are two temptations to which we are vulnerable in these moments. One is to think we can go it alone. The other is the opposite, that is the fear of not making it, as if the trial were greater than our strength."

I am grateful to all of you for your stories. I still read every single post on Mel’s forum, every day. If you don't have the caring support you need from people in your life, know that it is here in this online community.
