Occasionally I run across a story about the mysterious disease called Morgellon's, and I have to blog about it, since one of my friends is a sufferer from this phenomenon. It has become so widespread that it has been one of the stories being tracked by the alternative media for many years, but of course, the "disease" - if indeed that is what it is (which we'll get back to) - was not even admitted to exist by the lamestream corporate controlled media, nor by quackademia and its sufferers were even vilified as "imagining" things. Well, in my friend's case, I've personally witnessed the pain, seen the lesions, and seen the strange, fibrous material - which turned out to be a kind of plastic on analysis from his physician - which grew from them. My friend, like many Morgellon's sufferers, also informed me that the fibrous material seems particularly sensitive to electromagnetic energy, the fibers acting like hundreds of tiny antennae, and causing a sensation like tiny insects crawling just beneath the skin.

Well, now at least, according to this article shared by Ms. K.M., the existence of the phenomenon has at least been admitted. But there is a major "catch", as we shall see:

Scientific Study Sheds Light on Morgellons as an Infectious Disease

To begin with, the article notes the actual existence of the phenomenon:

Morgellons disease is a poorly understood condition characterized by spontaneously occurring, slowly healing skin lesions containing multicolored filaments and accompanied by symptoms such as fatigue, joint and muscle pain and neurological problems, according to a recent report published in the ‘International Journal of General Medicine.’

The review paper titled Morgellons Disease: A Filamentous Borrelial Dermatitis was written by Calgary microbiologist Marianne Middelveen and San Francisco internist, Dr.Raphael Stricker of the International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS). The skin condition is often linked to Lyme disease, a tickborne illness that has reached epidemic proportions throughout the USA.

But now comes the twist, for this new study links the fibrous material to Lyme disease, the tick-born disease that afflicts many people after tick bites:

Previous research funded by the CEHMDF has shed light on the mysterious illness. Rather than textiles, worms or parasites, the characteristic colorful filaments found in Morgellons skin lesions are composed of collagen and keratin produced by skin cells. The filaments can display some hair-like features and the blue coloration is caused by melanin pigmentation. The red coloration remains a mystery at present.

“There are no known blue textile fibers colored by melanin,” explains Middelveen “thus Morgellons fibers are of biological origin”.

A number of peer reviewed published studies have shown that Morgellons skin lesions are associated with Lyme disease. The causative agent of Lyme disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, and other closely related bacteria have been detected in Morgellons skin lesions. “This finding has been reproduced at four independent laboratories,” says Dr. Éva Sapi of the University of New Haven. “Thus the association between infection and Morgellons disease is reproducible if the correct detection methods are used.”

Now I do not, for a moment, dismiss the findings of this paper. Indeed, if some of the skin lesions contain the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium, that would seem to indicate some sort of connection.

But here's my problem: in my friend's case, he lives in a heavily urban area not widely known for the presence of wood ticks. He, and his physician, are convinced that the fibers they have seen  (which also on analysis contained plastics and even metal-like substances) were not caused by any such delivery vector, but rather, by the constant chemical spraying which takes place in his part of the country. As he has told me that his symptoms increase when this activity increases. One can imagine other potential vectors for the delivery of the infection: medicines, food supply, vaccines, and so on. And he is not alone in the Morgellon's community in his hypothesis about the spraying or the very strange nature of the fibers found in Morgellon's lesions.

So where's the high octane speculation here?

Firstly, I suspect, though certainly cannot prove, that we might be looking at some sort of "limited hangout position." This is certainly not to impugn the hard work of these scientists. Quite the reverse. They've provided the first public acknowledgement of the existence of the phenomenon, and that is a major step forward for Morgellon's sufferers, for as the article itself indicates, many were simply dismissive of the whole thing as being some sort of "mental illness", which in my friend's case - an engaging and intelligent man hardly given to mental fantasies - simply is not true. These scientists, by studying a disease many of their colleagues would deny even existed, exhibited some major moral courage.

But nonetheless, we might be looking at a limited hangout, for the possibility arises that we might be looking at a kind of weaponized version of the bacterium causing Lyme's disease, perhaps a genetically engineered one working in concert with other technologies, delivered through spraying and other vectors.

In short, the discussion of Morgellon's has come a long way with this scientific research, but I strongly suspect that it has a long way to go.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Verum on January 19, 2018 at 8:39 pm

    Dr Farrell – I’m so glad you made this post about Morgellon’s and Lyme. I have been wanting to pick your brain about it. Great to see others’ interest in the topic, as well. I just wrapped up 4+ years of Lyme treatment after living 16+ years undiagnosed, despite living in endemic New England for a decade. It destroyed my life. I likely contracted Lyme and multiple other tick-borne-diseases while living/working/traveling all around NE. MOST people don’t get accurately diagnosed and therefore, don’t get accurately treated. This is by design.

    Most of what people are taught about Lyme is false and a product of one of the most impressive disinfo campaigns that ever came out of the CDC and the military. Ages ago, the Borrelia microbe was found in a caveman (through DNA analysis) but the modern, bioengineered version of Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb, the spirochetal or corkscrew-shaped microbe that causes Lyme disease) is so stealthy, so advanced it’s considered the most complex bacterium known to science. Lyme exploded into existence quite suddenly in the mid-70s as a very different microbe than it had always been–this is not how organic evolution works. That and many other components of its history and behavior and the system that exploits it underpin its roots as a bioengineered bioweapon. Elena Cook has done excellent research on development of Bb as part of an EIS (Epidemic Intelligence Service) training program within the CDC with, of course, Nazi origins.

    As expected, Elena has been the target of an impressive sabotage campaign by NIH’s Edward McSweegan for her research and publications. Here is a recent blog posting about her harassment: website has been hacked and blocked and she’s still trying to recover but she shared 3 great posts on a Lyme forum about modern Lyme that developed out of biowarfare research:

    Lab 257 is a good read – outlines the safety issues with the Plumb Island bioweapon research lab, where they were studying Lyme disease (as they were in multiple other labs and at one time Elena had linked to research lists posted online by labs that listed Lyme, and of course these lists have disappeared). Contrary to what military and CDC and MSM want you to believe, it wasn’t a coincidence that the first incidences of Lyme infection showed up just downstream of Plumb Island, in Lyme, CT (which is what Lyme Disease was named after). A mom noticed that too many kids in her neighborhood were falling to this weird juvenile arthritis so she called colleagues at the WHO, where she formerly did some work. They sent over a couple of “scientists” who then studied the kids for a year before thinking, maybe, to try some antibiotics. These guys are key to the Lyme fraud cabal that has promoted this bioengineered study-turned-epidemic.

    Lyme is VERY controversial in the medical and scientific industry because of fraudulent science that I now understand is intentionally designed poorly out of collusion between the military/CDC/NIH/IDSA (Infectious Diseases Society of America) in order to artificially suppress Lyme research, diagnosis, treatment, education and legislation.

    A great study showed that Lyme now costs up to $1.3B every year to treat—and this does not include the bulk of treatment costs WHICH ARE NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE and borne by disabled and very sick people and families.

    One very important thing for people to understand is that Bb is NOT always transmitted by ticks; studies show it can also be transmitted by fleas, flies, mosquitoes, spiders, etc. A small but important study found it in 50% of seminal fluids and in 100% of vaginal fluids, and over 200 studies show is transmitted congenitally and through breast milk. It’s unconscionable that every person isn’t told this, but not at all a surprise. The CDC and medical system generally deny anything but the “deer tick bite” meme and of course won’t really study it.

    Also, the primary carrier of Lyme ticks is not deer, as most people are mislead to believe – it’s the white-footed mouse that hangs out in the fractal forest areas or the edges between dense vegetation and housing developments. More and more research is also proving that BIRDS could now be the primary carrier of Lyme ticks and make the geographic boundaries that comprise the CDC’s reporting maps and the MD “Lyme doesn’t exist here” dogma a cruel joke.

    Most people still believe Lyme is diagnosed primarily by the bulls eye (erythema migrans) rash, when fewer than 20% of people actually develop the rash. This is one of the failures of the foundational science that a) governs how Lyme is defined, diagnosed and treated b) defines how vaccines are developed, which ignores and defies the majority of the manifestations of the Bb microbe. It’s fraud and we’ve known it for 4 decades.

    As a true epidemiological tool, the CDC’s Lyme surveillance case definition criteria is calibrated toward a specific manifestation of Bb so that it can track all “like” cases and where they are through its reporting system. There are too many ridiculous problems with the system to include in this post. It is not designed to be comprehensive or acknowledge all manifestations of Lyme, but this is exactly how it’s actually being used and the CDC reporting system promotes there are 339,000 new Lyme cases every year when, in fact, this is probably only 5% of the infection rates of Lyme, given all of the ridiculous failures of the CDC’s Lyme diagnostic and reporting system. And again, it’s by design.

    As part of this surveillance process, the only CDC-approved diagnostic protocol is its two-tiered methodology, which involves an ELISA serology test followed by a western blot serology test, which has been studied to be as much as 86% INACCURATE, which is also ‘by design’ for the fastest-growing infectious disease in the country. The very truncated explanation is that the Bb microbe can not only evade and disable the immune system, making it damn near impossible to develop antibodies that serology tests look for, but Bb doesn’t stay in the blood stream very long as it’s designed to ‘screw into’ tissue. Additionally, the CDC/NIH Lyme cabal played around with the reactive bands to eliminate bands for DNA proteins used in early vaccines (that failed). So these highly-specific Lyme bands are removed from already-difficult-to-detect western blot tests, intentionally. This is really the tip of the iceberg. It’s so hard to test positive by these tests that the vast majority of people are told falsely that they don’t have Lyme and can spend years, decades and life savings trying to treat something they’re told doesn’t exist.

    The CDC has a statement on its website (albeit well hidden) reflecting that these unreliable tests shouldn’t be used solely for diagnosis, but doesn’t inform MDs and/or MDs are bullied into ignoring it. Not only is it almost impossible to get diagnosed, it’s damn near impossible to get treated. The documentary Under Our Skin outlines the hundreds of Lyme specialists who have been forced out of treating Lyme, licenses lost, practices destroyed, reputations ruined. My MD was one of them. You can guess who is behind these campaigns, too.

    Also by design the IDSA treatment guidelines, which dictates MD protocols and insurance coverage, are also shown in studies to be mostly inadequate and leave people dangerously susceptible to development of chronic Lyme, which the Lyme cabal also denies exists.

    Almost none of the recommended diagnostic protocols encourage exploration of coinfections that are more common than not, primarily with a tick transmission of Lyme, and can make diagnosis of Lyme near impossible. Can you imagine how many pathogens are running around in the blood of a wild mouse? Personally, I’ve been treating for 6 pathogens including Lyme. The diagnostic tools are as unreliable as Lyme tests and the overwhelming complexities of coinfections is another reason the IDSA treatment protocols are another cruel joke and are intentionally designed to undertreat.

    I can’t even imagine what else has been bioengineered that we don’t know about – one common coinfection with Lyme is Mycoplasma pneumonia ( and the bioengineered strain is very difficult to diagnose. Studies show that only 16% of what is fraudulently referred to as ‘flu’ to scare people into getting the flu vaccine, is actually ‘flu’ and most of it is due to respiratory viruses. And I think a lot of it is actually

    Scientific journalists obtained proof of vast conflicts of interest with the Lyme depts within CDC, NIH, IDSA (Infectious Diseases Society of America), including financial conflicts through FOIA documents that took the CDC 5 years to comply:

    These documents led to Richard Blumenthal’s (D-CT) anti-trust charges against the CDC and IDSA back in 2006, which failed due to lack of scientific evidence. A few months ago, another racketeering and antitrust lawsuit was filed against specific individuals within the Lyme cabal – they’ve had all the proof they need for decades. However, as has been expertly outlined by Dr. Stephen Greer in his Disclosure research, these valiant efforts regarding controversial military issues are almost always sabotaged:

    I also believe Morgellon’s is a bioweapon and was introduced into the animal kingdom and some mechanism is likely transmitted by ticks, too. Although I am also convinced that most people carry the Bb microbe by now and while some are asymptomatic, MANY are symptomatic but the since system prevents proper diagnosis of Lyme in order to maintain artificially low infection rates, this goes a long way to protect and prolong the covert research. Anecdotal information by Morgellon sufferers tie initial outbreaks to food and swarms of insects. It’s possible Morgellon’s is designed to activate by a trigger, which could explain the aerosol connection. And I believe that the connection between Lyme and Morgellon’s exists in the impact both have on disabling and evading the immune system, combined with the destruction of our immune functions through the typical American diet, GMOs, pesticides, VACCINES, poor gut health, declining nutrition in even healthy foods, the ABSENCE OF NUTRITION EDUCATION IN A TYPICAL MD CURRICULUM, and stressful lifestyles. I probably would have lived fairly well with my Lyme & coinfections–if I hadn’t received the flu vaccine, which stirred a tsunami in my immune system.

    Most Lymees are forced to go down this rabbit hole in order to save their lives; it’s not the typical rabbit hole journey borne out of the kind of curiosity like that which led me to Dr. Farrell’s work! You learn enough and it becomes very clear that the current Lyme epidemic is a decades-long covert study of a bioweapon leaked into the American public.

    Hi. I had a patient who “excreted” metal fragments through her hands while detoxing with Gerson therapy (for cancer). The skin is a secondary organ of excretion (after the lungs and kidneys). Thus a useful “exit” for foreign bodies of any kind, from the molecular size upwards.

  4. goshawks on January 16, 2018 at 9:07 pm

    Morgellon’s is a strange one. I tend to doubt an aerosol or other ‘general’ delivery method, as we would be seeing many spread-out cases rather than a few random, ‘outlier’ cases. No clue on the real vector. The general ‘suppression’ of research is also interesting…

    To me, there is a strange, ‘artificial’ nature to the disease itself. It seems more like something an AI would dream up, with an attempt to merge the non-living with living tissue. The metallic or plastic nature of the fibers suggest this. Some bumbling, botched effort to Borg us?

    • zendogbreath on January 16, 2018 at 10:53 pm

      gosh, you got the right idea. worthwhile to look at the patents in the chemtrails techs. also the contents of the sprays. there’s been evidence taken on the ground that it’s way more than a few nasty metallic salts of aluminum, barium and strontium. as if those were not bad enough. i’ve seen evidence raise from a few sources that dried human blood components were also included. and then who knows what else and why.

        If true…
        It brings to mind a Vatican review of a Star Wars release where they said the evil represented was lame. Herein, is Morgellon, a worthy evil… ?
        Is this then a personification of an ancient evil; as prevalent & enduring, as the living spirit?
        Was the Cosmic War an example of underestimating science/technology over such unknowns?
        Hard to fathom these deep, indeed, unknown waters “we” seem to find ourselves within.

        • goshawks on January 17, 2018 at 4:14 am

          RB, that is an interesting thought: Could Morgellon’s be a ‘remnant’ of some long-ago Cosmic War?

          We have mostly-respected ‘protocols’ to not use chemical and biological warfare on each other, mostly out of fear of retaliation or uncontrollable-spread. In some ancient “Star Wars” scenario, those two warfares might be a valuable part of the ‘mix’ – especially in the end-game, when race/species survival enters the equation.

          Fast-forward a few (250?) million years after the Cosmic War sputtered out. Any fearsome chemical and biological war-weapons have been massively degraded by time and exposure. Random micro-particles enter our atmosphere and drift down…

      hey marcos. think of darwin and galton’s letters to each other and their journals trying to come up with science backing their social darwinism agenda before it was called that. darwin’s whole phone sciency non-experimental approach to biology was their intended justification for eugenics. they had 57 different races of men with 55 races serving the top two races who needed to reproduce and grow based on their value to evolution of better humans. the bottom races were considered a drag on the evolution of the top two and all their servants in the other 50 some races and needed to be exterminated. three guesses who was the bottom of the list. one hint. anyone know anything about the irish holocaust we mostly know of as a potato famine? that was no agricultural mistake made by a bunch of dumb irish farmers.

      • goshawks on January 17, 2018 at 4:38 am

        The Irish farmers did ‘set themselves up’ by specializing on ONE well-producing food source. Same as corporate mega-farms are doing in America today. Lack of redundancy…

        However, the British ruling class (or those pulling their strings) used this crisis to attempt geno cide on the Irish, even to the point of selling & shipping surviving Irish foodstuffs overseas during the height of the famine. Boy, when that Karma arrives…

  8. Cynthia Cox on January 16, 2018 at 2:19 pm

    So happy to see Dr. Farrell, yet another post on how what is happening in our skies may be connected to this diabolical health issue.

    Two decades of work by the independent scientist Clifford Carnicom (who has been purposely confined by the CDC, EPA, etc. to the outer darkness of Internet publication) has basically exhausted at least the structure of the genetically engineered species; he more correctly renamed it a cross-domain bacteria (CDB).  To be fair, due to this fringe status, many of these scientists probably don’t even know his work exists, or at the very least may assume that his non-recognition is merited. Clifford’s papers and findings can be found at and Chapter 8 is dedicated to his work on CDB in HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth (2014) by Elana Freeland.

    At least there is another physician (that of Dr. Farrell’s friend) who is convinced of the plastic/metallic nature of the fibers. I wonder if it might be time to corral these courageous few and instigate some sort of official response. Wait, then that list of “suicided” medial personnel would be even longer…. What am I thinking?!

    Lyme disease. The first accidental release of a bio-weapon?

    A great book that sheds light on it is “Lab 257”. The “Plumb Island Bio-weapons Research Facility” was ground zero for Lyme disease. Initially they had great security but over time budgets got cut, complacency set in.

    They had to destroy their tick colony because they “lost containment”. Add in animals swimming to and from the island and you get the picture.
