Some peace while putting the pieces together

I am creating this at the new coffee shop in town. The owner and I just talked about a concept we're calling a "bright ripple". The bright ripple starts with one, builds to two, and keeps growing. It's positive action growing exponentially until it creates a tsunami of bright beauty and chases off the dark. Everyone get your boards and surf the ripple!

Holiday Season Wishes

This is the time of year of many holiday celebrations. While I'm a Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years celebrator, I know there are people who differ from my beliefs who also suffer from Morgellons and other conditions related to toxicity (and I will not leave you out in the cold). If there was one major message Christ shared it is- we are all connected. I'm thankful for this gift called life and this amazing planet we all inhabit. And I am thankful for all of you!

My gift to you is a break from Morgellons. It may be a short one, but please take it anyways. Here it is: http://youtu.be/JbkIXI-E7KE .

I will be taking some time away to be with family, heal more and making some final edits on another book (Beul Nam Beinn will be released soon).

An Online Protocol for T.I.L.T.

I came across this today and thought I'd recommend reading it. T.I.L.T. stands for Toxic Induced Lose of Tolerance and is primarily used in reference to those sick in the Gulf region. The protocol is very similar to the one I am currently following (add to it chelation agents). Bringing it all together is costly, but appears to help most. Of course, as with any approach, I recommend sufferers work with a medical professional. The article is found at: http://morgellonssupport.com/forum/topics/tilt-multiple-chemical .

Morgellons Art

I've been considering an idea and would love some input. I'd like to start an online art show containing representative art work by Morgellons sufferers. I am picturing it as a means for those who haven't had Morgellons symptoms to experience it via art. I know we have all had our separate experiences and wonder if this might be a way to reach the general population.

Thoughts? Thanks, Joe

Putting the Pieces Together

Well, I'm back in my house. I've been trying my best to get on track with detox again...I fell away some with all the stress of coming back to US from overseas (health, family, work...or non-work, etc.). I am finding my sleep, exercise, and other pieces of daily routine to fall better into place.

I am returning to chelation agents suggested by Dr. Bruce Shelton (phospholipid exchange being key). I know they helped matters considerably although are somewhat expensive. I think chelating metals out of hiding is key to improvement (though it takes time).

I also have been hitting the sauna again. This is especially nice on the cold evenings. I will try to include this twice each week from now on.

I do keep exercise as a focus as well. I have started running again. This morning I think I may have jogged 4 miles or so. It is slow going, but, as my cross country couch used to say, I'll get distance down and then work on speed.

When it is considerably colder and the weather turns nasty, I will make use of my rebounder. a half hour of bouncing in the morning makes my day much better!

Anyhow, all is well (considering I do not have any solid employment). Happy trails, Joe

Hindsight is 20/20 or Defense Before the Offense

I'm adjusting to moving back into my house. There's plenty on my mind. I have to clean up from my tenants, have a major porch repair, touch up paint, and prepare for the possibility of someone who will rent a spare room from me. It'll all come together of this I'm certain.

I've been considering all that goes into cleaning out our body systems. If I was to go back to the beginning of my Morgellons symptoms (not that I'd really want to), I would proceed differently. I feel our best approach to is build the bodies defenses before taking on the offenses (toxins).

At the base of all, I like the approach Mel (who also documented recovery with all related at: http://howicuredmorgellons.com/) mentions of his doctor from the start taking the approach of-- do no harm. I used some dangerous pesticides and meds at the beginning (I know many of us have/did). The do no harm approach is likely the best direction.

I know I've written much on pray, meditation, yoga, and other soft forms of exercise as being beneficial. This makes sense as it calms the endocrine system. This along with getting the body less acidic would be the best first steps. Initially I did some of this...but I'm finding it is something needing to become habitual. I am learning (aren't we all?).

If you haven't listened to Dr. Amin's radio/blog show with Pam Crane, I highly recommend it. He has a sensibility and understanding of this condition few do. His understanding is from someone who has been in the trenches from the start (or at least the mid-90s).
