Skip to comments.Joni Mitchell - Famous Singer Being Treated for Morgellons
Posted on 02/23/2009 6:49:57 AM PST by Scythian
The Fiddle and the Drum" remains the primary focus for Mitchell, who's also in the midst of treatments for Morgellons syndrome, an infectious and potentially debilitating skin condition that's put other endeavors on hold for now.
Spent a few minutes here - I looked a series of slides where someone removes some of the leisons and burned them with a butane lighter and they seemed to act similarly to fiberglass insulation. I remembered that some sea creatures “grow glass,” which is of interest to the makers of optical fiber. It seems that they have found a rather simple means to grow silica nanotubes using Lanreotide(1):
Lanreotide is also used as a therapudic agent.
I am not sure where this is going - just some random thoughts, which may help you think about a new way of attacking this beast.
Take it orally a few times a day— just put ten drops or so in a water bottle and swig it as you go along. Use it as a rinse for the lesions, too. See what happens. Worth a try.
Prayers for her health.
Exactly what I was going to post, though I'd have spelled it "canuck". :)
They paved paradise, then allocated 30 billion to pave it again!
My prayers for you and your family. My prayers for Joni and her family as well. I love her music.
I know I found the cure to my back injury pain via FR and the internet -Reverse Osmosis water/no flouride in the diet and the supplement Cetyl-Myristoleate. Scythian, I wish you the best fortune and sincerely hope you find a cure.
bump for later
Thanks for the links/videos. Thanks to every poster offering suggestions. Fascinating, disturbing, scary.
neverdem & granny Ping! Please read Scythian’s and others posts & view the links if you have time. I do not have a ping list. If you can shed light on this topic or have ping lists to others who can, it would be greatly appreciated. You are the 2 FReepers who come to mind readily that may be able to add to this discussion for your medical expertise and general knowledge. I’m sorry if I missed anyone else.
I will post what I have done that I believe has kept me alive, this is a very serious issue, and spreading at what I believe at a pandemic level. I now do only all natural things, the key is to build the immune system, keep the body’s PH level near 7.0, and keep a good level of oxygen in the blood.
I have never told a doctor that I have this condition, never dared mention it, I know people that have been committed against their will, others whom have had thier children removed from them, others whose spouse abandoned them thinking them crazy (some spouse huh?) and so on, it rips families apart, there is something very much not right about this disease. I spend time on forums reaching out to those that I can, trying to keep them from going over the deepend which is a very real possibility at the onset of this disease.
Remember, the #1 releif pitcher in baseball (Billy Koch) was out of baseball in 2 years after coming down with Morgellons and Joni Mitchell has put her career on hold, this is NOT just a skin condition, this is wrecking ball of horror loose in the land, I posted about it on the forums two years ago and all I get was the tin foil jokes, the warning still stands, we are in big trouble.
Everytime I see a story about the bird flu I laugh, they are worried about a non-event while a real pandemic sweeps the land (and they know it). Trust me, I’d take my chances with the bird flu anyday, I bet I’d beat it to, and if I didn’t I would be dead in two weeks, as it is, I live a life full of a kind of sick horror that is truly beyond the comprehension of most individuals.
Thanks very much. I am off to work in a couple of minutes. Will be back on tonight.
Bob Dylan may tack mldly to the left but he never advocated it like other leftist musicians. In fact Joan Baez wanted Dylan to be more outspoken on issues but he wouldn't go there..always respected that about him.
Right and I guess you read posts like #90, the other thing is that being a Stalinist really means something, it doesn’t just mean lefty or commie.
I knew a Stalinist, he was about 80+ and a WWII combat vet, and he knew what Stalin was, what he did and how much of it he did and this guy wanted more of it here in America, he was a disgusting man, worse than the few ex-Nazis that I have known and I wasn’t sad when he died about 3 years ago.
Thanks for the ping. I was looking for pings that I missed. I haven’t read the story yet. The CDC was supposed to set up a task force on Morgellons is what I know.
Thanks neverdem. Thanks for the latest post/information from Dr. Edward Spencer, Scythian. Thanks for YOUR first-hand knowledge and for transmitting that knowledge to us. Invaluable.
