Several weeks ago I had a dinner with one of our loyal readers of the Healing Grapevine and it was a real pleasure to connect.
I’m going to give him the fictitious name of Joe.
Joe and I conversed for hours and covered all kinds of topics. One of the things that we kept coming back to was why he was still experiencing the creepy crawly activity on the skin.
He has been utilizing all the detox principles available and following advice from all the sources since he contracted Morgellons 2 years ago, and yet he is not fully recovered. I forget the value he put on it…let’s say he is 85-90% better but he still feels the sensation of a body bug movement. And he still fears that he may be contagious based on his previous experiences when friends had contracted the Morgellons symptoms after spending time with him. (On that note, I was not concerned and came away from the evening with just my normal scratch and itch moments. I am confident that the recovery techniques I have learned will always keep me safe and healthy.)
I had to laugh when at some point he said…’you are scratching; you’ve scratched your head 6 times and your shoulder 3, but you haven’t scratched your nose yet’.
God I so remember when every single sensation on my skin was “THAT”, and then as I was recovering, I remember how amazing it was to recognize that an itch is just an itch and not some freaky body bug, agro-bacterium, or advanced nano material trying to wrap me in plastic or hatch it’s next generation.
Today, I go through my day scratching a lot if I happen to pay attention and that brings up the point that we do become hyper sensitive and need to be sure we are using products on our skin and eating foods that are not aggravating BUT are promoting healing.
Not only do we have to detox and clean the skin and entire system, we must feed and nourish it properly to help it rebuild. It is imperative to employ both strategies!
So back to the point of this story…
As we got toward the end of the evening, we ordered a glass of wine. I have drank alcohol on and off my whole life, but this moment in the evening brought up the recommendations from the alternative communities that state when you are actively employing a detox and recover program, you should NOT drink alcohol. Joe was admitting this was one of the things he had not completely followed.
So what if this is the one last trigger that keeps his system too acidic and therefore continues to invite the problems?
What if he stopped drinking alcohol to help himself recover? What if this is all that is left to correct?
What an amazing idea…we already know alcohol is damaging to our system in large quantities, and in the hyper sensitive individuals dealing with toxicity of any kind, even small amounts is counter productive.
During my recovery period I had no desire to drink even one glass of wine with a meal.
In fact, becoming alcohol intolerant is one of the tip-offs in a clinical analysis for Morgellons as well as many other chronic diseases.
If you just think about the pH measures in tests like the Kangen water video we did that shows the wide range of pH in different beverages, it is obvious to see that drinking high acid drinks promotes poor health and weaker systems.

So if this is still one of those things you are doing and you are not yet fully recovered then I encourage you to do this:
Stop drinking alcohol, all soda and carbonated drinks, coffee, and bottled juices.
Start drinking fresh squeezed juices (mostly veggies) and a liquid mineral supplement and the rest of the time, drink your water.
Water and lime, water and lemon, Willard water, but do not drink alkalized water that is created higher than a 7 pH…just drink water!
I sign off with a normal scratch to the top of my head and wish you all a fabulous day!
