One of the important functions we try to provide to the community is staying up-to-date on current Morgellons research so we pulled out the stops at the conference to be sure we had the intel we needed.
NutraSilver would like to thank Cindy Casey-Holman, Executive Director of the Charles E. Holman Morgellons Disease Foundation (CEHF), for her tireless efforts to make this a very successful conference; without her, it would not have been as successful as it was.
Meet the “They” you Refer to When you Speak of Morgellons Researchers
The Charles E. Holman Foundation is the only credible organization doing any meaningful scientific research in the world. This organization is ground zero for all Morgellons research and has dedicated research scientists working diligently to find the cause and cure for Morgellons Disease. The methods they use, including double-blind and peer-reviewed published findings are recognized by the scientific community at large.
- Cindy Casey-Holman, RN; Morgellons sufferer, founder and executive director of the CEHF. She is a registered nurse with nearly 20 years of experience in critical care. Like many of you, she was diagnosed with delusional parasitosis at UCSF (medical professionals trying to tell her it was all in her head). She is the founder of the 501(c)3 non-profit organization Charles E. Holman Foundation, the primary source of credible scientific research on Morgellons Disease.
- Marianne Middleveen, Mdes: A microbiologist and Lyme disease sufferer herself, she was instrumental in the detection and isolation of Borrelia burgdorferi, which is found in both Morgellons and lyme disease.
- Dr. Ginger Savely, DNP: Has a doctorate in nursing practice; has received many awards for her research into Morgellons disease. She has treated thousands of Lyme patients and over 600 Morgellons patients during the last 12 years. Considered by her colleagues to be one of the top experts in the USA, she is the first scientist to associate Lyme with Morgellons Disease.
- Dr. Randy Wymore, PhD: Director of the Center for the Investigation of Morgellons Disease at Oklahoma State University is the coauthor of 17 Morgellons articles published in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
- Dr. Greg Smith, MD; a pediatrician and Morgellons sufferer has worked for the Morgellons Research Foundation and is one of the Founders of the Charles E. Holman Foundation. Dr. Smith works tirelessly to advance this important research about the mysteries of Morgellons disease.
There are many more “heroes” conducting research into Morgellons at Universities and research labs throughout the country.
What Has Been Discovered and Reported?
At the conference, there was much discussion among presenters regarding the presence of Borrelia, Bartonella and Helicobacter pylori in Morgellons skin samples. The exact etiology of Morgellons Disease remains unknown while the consistent presence of these pathogens and their absence in controls is being further explored in larger study groups.
In addition, both university research presenters, Randy Wymore, PhD, OSU and Cheryl Bandoski, MS, UNH discussed their results of metagenomic analyses and more techniques being used to identify any other potential pathogens within Morgellons samples to be compared with controls.
To date there has been no evidence to suggest a fungal involvement in Morgellons pathology nor is there any evidence to suggest that genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) or genetically modified foods are involved. There was some speculation that Morgellons could be yet another cutaneous manifestation of Lyme Disease.
Probably some of the best news is that experts were all in agreement that Morgellons is not contagious by casual contact.
Are you tired of all the “conspiracy theories” read about on the internet?
Well, so are we!
If you want real, meaningful research, it costs a lot of time and money to do so.
It is time for Morgellons sufferers to put their eye on real scientific research that is recognized by so-called “main-stream” medicine. You can do that by supporting the Charles E. Holman Morgellons Disease Foundation with your tax-free donations.
The reality is that it costs many thousands of dollars to do this research. NutraSilver has already invested a large sum towards their research and we would like to encourage you to contribute as much as you can afford, even if it is just a few dollars; every bit helps.
