This website is made to share Morgellons Disease information more easily so that others may read studies and links which Jean, the site owner, finds interesting. On this domain nothing is offered to the consumer, as it is made for information purposes only as in no goods are sold and no services are offered for the Morgellon's patient through this website.

Jean is not ready to offer her TCM herbal supplement or her services (as a primary health care provider using TCM methods) for treatment, but when she is, this page and her TCM page will be updated to reflect the goods and services offered. This website is a work in progress and will be until the effort to sort out high probability etiologies are narrowed down.   Jean has completed a new paper regarding her insights and treatment strategies for this problematic syndrome from the view of TCM. Note: Jean does not claim to have "a cure," but she believes TCM treatments can help Morgellon's Disease sufferers so they can return to a state of relatively good health and live a normal life. With this in mind, she has done extensive research and written a new paper.

At this time, there is not a scientifically proven etiology for Morgellons or a western allopathic consensus opinion of its etiology, although researchers are leaning towards a pathogen theory.

July 24- new Jean's Morgellons Blog begun. Comments and dialog welcome there.

2012 News. Recent study done - correlation between spirochete infection and fiber growth.

"Consistent detection of spirochetes associated with lesions is evidence of spirochetal etiologic involvement. . . 

"Because BDD is a disease in which spirochetes have been identified as primary etiologic agents, and spirochetal sero-reactivity has been associated with MD, it is reasonable to assume that spirochetal infection plays an important role in MD filament production"

This is good news that points researchers to explore spirochete infection as the etiology for the skin eruptions with fiber growths. Original article published March 2012 - see Morgellons Disease: A Chemical and Light Microscopic Study or view full text PDF

2010 News. Recent study done - first pass at case definition, criteria are as follows:

"...the most common symptoms shared by more than 70% of the study sample ere: crawling sensations under the skin; spontaneously appearing, slow-healing lesions; hyperpigmented scars when lesions heal; intense pruritus; seed-like objects and black specks coming out of the skin; “fuzz balls” on intact skin; fine, thread-like fibers of varying colors in lesions and intact skin; lesions with thick, tough, translucent fibers that are highly resistant to extraction; and a sensation of something trying to penetrate the skin from the inside out."

This is good news. This will be the springboard for creating the criteria list for differential diagnosis of Morgellon's Disease. Original article published May 2010, see summary at Analysis but view entire report by grabbing their PDF
