Eliminate Natural Fibers and Fabrics
The second “shield” to protect against Morgellon’s is to eliminate all natural fibers/fabrics (cotton, wool, silk, etc.) from your environment and replace with synthetic ONLY (nylon, polyester, microfiber, etc.) The Morgellon’s “organism” thrives on natural fibers and is often already present in the clothes you buy. This is a TEMPORARY step and should be followed for at least 8 weeks. At the end of 8 weeks, you may begin to reintroduce natural fibers depending on your symptoms.
- Replace all sheets, blankets, bedspreads, towels, washcloths, etc. with SYNTHETIC materials. All of these items are available in synthetic blends and microfibers that are just as luxurious as their cotton and natural-fiber alternatives. We found very inexpensive items at discount dollar stores.
- ALL clothing should be SYNTHETIC only, including underwear, socks, pants, shirts, jackets. We found athletic wear to be comfortable and appropriate for most occasions. Do not lament over not being able to dress in your normal clothes — remember, this is only TEMPORARY and it is CRITICAL to halting the Morgellon’s organism. It is not necessary to purchase a whole new wardrobe; synthetics wash and dry quickly and we found just a few items in each category of clothing was plenty to get us through the 8 weeks.
- Remove all non-synthetic clothing, bedding, towels, from your closets and pack away TEMPORARILY in storage tubs with lids. Add a few drops of Cedarwood oil to each tub and store away from your current synthetic clothing.
This shield is critical in order to break the lifecycle of the Morgellon’s organism.
