Human Anatomy, Physiology, and Medicine. Anything human!
I have been looking around the net to see what I can find on the use of ozone for Morgellons disease. I did find a Dr Julian Holmes who was eliciting people for a trial treatment of morgellens with ozonated olive oil, that has been known for other diseases of microbal and parasitic orgin to be quite effetive.
Since Dr Holmes set up these trials he has had some very bad health and has been unavailable to communicte with. I recently received some DVDs of his lectures and some photos on disk from a Doctor, of what I think is Morgellons over a couse of 6 weeks of treatment. The photos were unlabled and there were no written pages to go with them. Since Dr Holmes is a great promoter of ozone therapy, a research doctor and has had training primarily in Dentistry I am assuming these photos of arms and legs are morgellons. The Doctor who sent me the photos could not say definately as he had no interest in morgellons at the time this info came to him but he suspects they are some photos from Dr Holme's research.
I am really a computer inept. I see how you all place photos on the site but I have not been able to do so in other forums. I am giving it another try. If it does not come out please send me your email if you are interested in seeing these photos. I will post my e-mail if it does not work.

Best topical treatment is pure mint oil or mint oil mixed with terramycine
(oxytetracycline by pfizer)
You can wrap with plastic to promote penetration.
Prevent eyes and sensitive body parts to come in contact with the oil.
Buffer eyes first with eye cream (terramycine eye cream, by pfizer)
Mint oil is very effective and the oil will stimulate blood flow.
You can wash the oil away after 10 minutes.
Topical application will not erradicate infection.
Ask Your GP for oral Itraconazole or Bactrim.
Say that it is rational to treat the infection as protothecosis.
All lesions including healed lesions will become reactive during effective treatment and all affected skin will have to grow out.
How do you know that the oils you suggest are the best treatment? If mint oil with terramycine is used does it completely go away?
Over and over again I have read from those suffering this disease that antibiotics do not cure. Are you saying that bactrim and Itraconazole are curative or as you say irradicate the infection, or merely sufficently suppressive so you can kind of get on with your life?
Is there any indication that this parasite lives in other places than the skin such as lymph nodes, liver, etc?
Read standard treatment against protothecosis.
It would be (IM) Amikacin or (IV) Amphotericin B.
Last would indicate hospitalization.
Partially effective is Itraconazole (cide)
and Bactrim (static)
Infection can be compared with cocidioidomycosis or paracoccidioidomycois.
Coccidioidomycosis is standard given as differential for protothecosis to my knowledge.
Its not an infection with a natural occuring strain as You may understand. The micro organism represents a synthetic model organism.
The problem is penetration of the therapeutic agent in relation to the process of polymerization of artifact in the skin c.q cell adhesion and subsequent infection of cell.
Artifacts relate to module of this multi cellular acting synthetic micro organism.
Mint oil has the capacity to penetrate.
Us only mint oil because it is a safe oil.
Terramycine (oxytetracycline by pfizer) is static and7 or cide if used with mint oil.
Most logic prescription by GP would be Amikacin (IM) combined with a tetracycline or long term oral Itraconazole.
All mentioned therapeutic agents would indicate experimental treatment since no treatment protocol has been established.
Professional Clinicians and Scientists,
Below is a letter from "accudoc" or Rick B. who is a homeophathic doctor and would like you to see this letter.
Those of you with credentials please read the letter and notify him if you can theorize and/or apply your specific knowledge to help come to a scientific hypothesis that is workable pertaining to this Fiber Disease.
Skytroll per "accudoc"
I propose that we come together and on a separate board to discuss the various theories and protocols and see if through our contacts and institutions we work for, conduct our own research on this problem.
Anyone who is interested who has a degree in molecular biology, genetics, genetic engineering, agricultural genetics, bioweapons development, microbiology, or access to laboratories or individuals with clinical experience or scientific expertise can pm me about creating a new forum. The names of the members of this group would be kept confidential and the site would be private so that only members would have access.
We can report our work back to this board and similar boards on a regular basis so as to keep people informed of what we are doing. The idea here is start and utilize the professional expertise that exists among fellow morg sufferers and interested parties to work on this problem. I think that it is going to be a while before the research institutions work out this out. Being a private group with no agenda but to get to the bottom of this story we may be able to move forward more quickly. Collectively I think we more than likely have access to the neccessary equipment and expertise to do the basic research.
We may also be able to get some private funding from fellow sufferers who are viewing everything from the sidelines. I would bet there are people here who have some deep pockets and would like to fund a private research effort that is streamlined and does not have other issues to work on.
This would not be for individuals who just want to speculate on what is going on or people looking for help as the board we are already on provides that service but for professionals only in the medical and scientific fields who are willing to work together in the spirit of cooperation on a joint effort.
This would not be for people who want to grandstand their own theories or just run there egos around. It would be for people who have an open mind and want to test and apply the theories presented by other professionals without bias and destructive criticism.
So if you are interested please pm me with your background and expertise and I will give you my email so we can discuss this further.
Dr. Rick B
PS: Please don't reply to this post just pm me. I would like to keep this post free of any off topic materials, theories, discussions, etc. Thanks
One important point is that we would entertain all plausible explanations and experiences from other individuals who do not have the above expertise but who have come to their conclusions via observation of their symptoms and experiences. We would value everyone's opinion and keep an open mind as to what is going on.

Thank you Skytroll for posting that! Hope we get some people who can help.
Arrow, thanks for the follow up on Dr. Holmes and ozone therapy. Great work!
I am still trying to digest all of the new media coverage, there is sooooo much!!!!
Thank you Cliff and Jan! you guys did great and the new info is heavily on my mind. I want to know everything about this but still get very disturbed by it at times. I’m sure you can understand this.
Anyway, I really want to thank everyone who has helped to expose this condition and finally get things moving. Prayers are being answered!
I am happy to say that Pennsylvania is on this too. CBS!
“The symptoms are unquestionably real and the symptoms are in the skin you know they're not in the mind,” said Dr. Caroline Koblenzer of University of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Koblenzer, a Philadelphia psycho-dermatologist says not much is known about the disease, but the skin lesions might be related to stress or anxiety.
No matter what the future brings I thank you for all of your help. I cannot express in mere words my gratitude for your vital role in helping to get this moving for us. Blessings to you my friend.

Is this what you have been referring to?........polymerization, nanotechnology, cell adhesion, self assembly, etc.?
Scroll down to read Dr. Maynard's research interests.....
