My name is Stephen Geller Katz and I have and over the last 10 years I have developed a highly successful therapy for tinnitus which I have named Tinnitus Cognitive Retraining Therapy or TCRT. This blog’s mission is to provide you with hope.  Maybe you have been told there is nothing you can do or that you just have to get used to it. I am telling you right now that there is plenty you can do and you don’t have to just get used to it. Many people who come to me are desperate for hope and are even more stressed by the “doom and gloom” they encounter on the internet and from many of their doctors.  It’s this type of negative information that makes people feel helpless and even increases the tinnitus symptoms.
The mechanisms of hearing are complex and our understanding of them is continually evolving. After air vibrations reach the eardrum, delicate bones transcribe them to the fluid-filled chambers of the inner ear. These afferent (to the brain) nerves carry impulses through the brainstem to the “auditory belt” which decides which signals are important.
Considering this elaborate chain of events, it’s easy to see how a hiccup at any point could create noise.
A dietary deficiency is, by definition, when a specific nutrient is consistently low enough that it leads to a disease process.
Individuals supplemented immediately after an event that could cause hearing loss did show improvement. As with any idiopathic disorder, it’s unclear as to what effect nutrients play in its development and treatment. Idiopathic means “unknown” and for most of us this also implies, “It could be anything!” – which is not entirely accurate. Some research has shown that people clinically deficient in some nutrients (like B12 or Zinc) may be more prone to develop tinnitus when exposed to acoustic trauma.
When tinnitus cannot be associated with a diagnosable disorder, the general recommendation leans toward improvement in overall health, especially inner ear health. Many of the same dietary recommendations for cardiovascular disease are recommended for tinnitus. It’s always best to consult a doctor before embarking on any major lifestyle change involving diet or exercise. Researchers at Berkeley recently published an article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences offering insight and new hope into the phenomena that is hearing loss induced tinnitus.
Co-author Shaowen Bao and his team support the idea that neural cells of the auditory cortex strive to maintain a constant rate of firing regardless of the level of sound.
The idea is that the overactive neurons can be convinced to “calm down” by offering them input from alternative sources. In recent years much discussion has surrounded micro-nutrients’ and the essential fatty acids’ role in reducing degenerative disease. Free radicals (reactive oxygen species or ROS) have also been implicated in damage to the sound producing hair cells of the inner ear, and use of radical scavengers such as Pycnogenol and other antioxidants may be beneficial.
In addition to the herbal supplements, vitamin deficiency may also potentially lead to tinnitus – with reduced B-vitamins being particularly suspect.
While vitamin supplementation is likely only valuable in cases of medically identifiable deficiencies, there is no evidence that an excess of B-vitamins have harmful effects and some argue the recommended levels may be too low. When an underlying medical cause cannot be found the approach of improving general ear health is usually taken, although “healthy” can become an area of debate as different researchers come to different conclusions. There has been research into many supplements and non-traditional therapies for tinnitus, each showing varying levels of effectiveness.
Nutrition and dietary deficiencies can play a very real role in heath and the progression of disease. It’s actually hard to define a “vitamin” as they’re classified by what they do in the body vs. Vitamin deficiency is when the levels of available vitamin, as measured in the blood, are below a standard set by the medical and biochemistry community.
One point of debate is whether the current markers for high and low are really sufficient for preventing disease.
Vitamin deficiencies can arise from diet, metabolic problems or a failure to absorb a nutrient properly. The majority of dietary Cobalamin is found in meat, egg and fish products – and a diet low in these can make it difficult to keep B-12 levels normal. These proteins carry it through to the small intestine where the haptocorrins are degraded and the B-12 binds to “intrinsic factor”.
A failure of any of these proteins or receptor complexes can result in a failure to absorb or transport B-12. To date, there has been one formalized study showing that individuals already deficient in B-12 are more likely to suffer noise induced hearing loss with tinnitus after exposure to loud noise.
If the deficiency is an absorptive problem (which can be confirmed by your doctor), B-12 shots are a well recognized therapy.
It’s important to note that the liver stores enough B-12 to supply all the body’s need for 2 to 3 years.

Tinnitus affects an estimated 50,000 Americans and can be a very real source of frustration and stress in their lives.
Many people have had the experience of ringing ears and dizziness when fasting for long periods of time.
One of the most common findings was a correlation between hyperinsulinemia (chronically high blood insulin) and inner ear disorders.
Second, the correlation between insulinemia and inner ear problems is most strongly indicated in metabolic disorders that affect both hearing (auditory) and balance (vestibular). Pro-Fono Revista de Atualizacao Cientifica did a direct study on the relationship of diet to tinnitus symptoms. What effect blood levels of glucose, insulin, triglycerides and cholesterol will have on tinnitus is still unknown, however there’s a rising body of evidence that they may have an effect on hearing and balance. The Vagus nerve (also known as the 10th cranial nerve) supplies parasympathetic information to and from the medulla.
Vagus nerve stimulation has long been used for the treatment of epilepsy and depression, however new studies have shown that it may also reduce symptoms of tinnitus.
Four of the patients in the study experienced a clinically significant reduction in tinnitus by as much as 26 decibels. The team is already working on a larger study where they hope to use more convenient implanted pulse generators so subjects need not come to the clinic for treatments.
Hearing loss is often, but not always accompanied by tinnitus and in most cases the ringing is an independent issue caused by the factors that led to the hearing loss itself.
Things such as the repetitive pounding of a jackhammer or constant hum of an engine create a sort of blunt trauma within the inner ear, damaging the delicate hair cells that transcribe sound waves into neural signals.
The pathology of tinnitus can stem from any point in the hearing chain starting with the ear canal and ending centrally with the brain.
Illnesses of the inner like Meniere’s disease, perilymphatic fistula and infection often also result in tinnitus.
Less well understood causes of tinnitus may include blood supply and blood pressure, dysfunction of the brain’s hearing centers, allergy, diet and exogenous chemicals like drugs or alcohol.

Morgellons Disease Awareness - Morgellons Disease: Tips for healing lesions, oral care and environment   Information for dealing with Morgellons lesions using topical aids as well as FAR infrared technology. That little opening in the side of your head has a surprisingly significant impact on how you hear. Similar to tapping the skin of a water balloon, the sound ripples through the perilymph to a second fluid-filled chamber containing endolymph where things get really interesting.
These marvels of evolution translate fluid vibrations into nerve impulses that get carried to the brain. The “important” signals continue on to the cortices of the brain and our conscious hearing while others – don’t. The constant ringing and buzzing sound can be maddening, and research continues to search for causes and resolutions. A study published in the American Journal of Otolaryngololgy found a correlation between an existing deficiency in B12 and the tendency to develop hearing loss and tinnitus after exposure to loud noise. Zinc is related to neurotransmission and is found in very high concentrations in the inner ear.
Most of these were directed at magnesium administration immediately following an acoustic trauma (loud noise) or sudden sensorineural hearing loss (when the hearing goes away suddenly for no known reason).
This implies magnesium may play a role in inner ear function; or at least in those healing processes of the ear after an acoustic trauma. It’s clear that nutrient deficiencies play a role in the development of disease including tinnitus.
The cause is frequently unknown, which makes treatment a struggle to separate what works from what doesn’t. With the exception of autoimmune or allergic inner ear disorders (which do exist) the answer to “Can foods cause tinnitus?” is maybe…but it’s pretty unlikely. Hyperinsulemia and unhealthy fluctuations in blood glucose have also been implicated in some inner ear disorders which can result in tinnitus.
In almost all circumstances, an improvement in one’s general health will have a positive effect on reducing symptoms.
The inner ear and the stria vascularis are big energy users; needing a constant heavy supply of oxygen and nutrients to generate ATP. Fewer caffeinated beverages, increasing essential fatty acids (EFAs), and supplements which have been shown to increase vasodilatation (such as Ginko Biloba and Niacin) may also have positive effects. It increases oxygenation to all tissues including the inner ear, creates a more flexible vasculature and an improved circulation overall. With your doctor’s guidance you can improve your diet and health, which will likely improve everything else including your tinnitus symptoms. A constant ringing in the ears, it can vary from little more than an irritation to a debilitating condition.
In their paper they claim tinnitus is the result of acoustic cortex neurons attempting to “fill in the gap” of missing sound.
The balance between this constant rate and the actual input from the inner ear is part of hearing homeostasis.
However, this new information has created a paradigm shift in the way hearing specialists view the process.
Michael Merzenich, professor emeritus of otolaryngology at UCSF and chief scientific officer at Posit Science. This is similar to treatments for phantom limb syndrome where the brain is convinced to substitute different input (such as from a finger next to the missing finger) to correct its sensory gap. Neurotransmitters are chemicals in the brain which both excite and dampen neuron signaling.
Arguments can be made that foods with less processing and a more organic lifecycle may be richer in these. N-acetylcysteine has received quite a bit of attention for its protective capacity from sound induced hearing loss which can lead to tinnitus. B12 is critical for maintaining the nerve’s protective myelin sheath as well as for the production of Epinephrine, Creatine, Methylated Nucleotides and Phosphatidylcholine for cell walls. There is a rising body of research into the efficacy, and potential hazards, of supplementation for tinnitus. Contact us, the top tinnitus treatment center in the New York area, for answers and treatment options to quiet the ringing. Some of the suspected causes of tinnitus include blood flow disorders, inflammation, mechanical disruptions (such as in the neck, jaw or ear), chemical contact and prolonged exposure to noise.
Weight loss, a more nutritious and balanced diet, and exercise will reduce inflammation, increase blood flow and improve overall functioning of the whole body.
It can be related to a diagnosed medical condition or be completely idiopathic; and when the cause is unknown finding solutions is an exhausting process. The herbal and vitamin market abounds with claims, both supported and anecdotal, for the benefits of supplementation.
The aforementioned problems certainly arise when levels of B-12 are significantly low, for a long time.
B-12 can’t be manufactured by either plants or animals, and is actually formed by bacteria. Vegans must pay special attention to ensure their diets have a full complement of nutrients including B-12.
Pancreatic insufficiency or a high (basic) intestinal pH can lead to problems with this step.
It’s common for the production of intrinsic factor to diminish with age, which is why we hear so much about B-12 shots for the elderly. It is known that deficiencies in B-12 can cause neurological symptoms due to hypomethylation within the nervous system (resulting from an inability to recycle homocysteine to methionine and ultimately to S-adenosylmethionine). While one study does not a scientific truth make, this is a good place to start the investigation.


If the failure is with B-12 usage from the blood stream, there are lifestyle changes that can maximize the value of the vitamin that is being absorbed such as maintaining adequate cysteine in the diet.
This is why symptoms of B-12 deficiency are slow to develop, and a single low blood test is not necessarily time to panic. When a medical treatment cannot be found, many turn to holistic and other lifestyle changes to help control the ringing. Because the inner ear (especially the stria vascularis) is so heavily energy dependent, the assumption is that any reductions in blood flow, oxygen or glucose can result in disturbances to homeostasis resulting in tinnitus. Metabolic disorders have long been suspect in diseases of the inner ear, and some recent studies indicate that high levels of insulin may have a strong correlating factor.
There is speculation amongst investigators as to whether high insulin is a direct cause of disease processes or just an indicator.
In one study, up to 25% of participants with insulinemia were also diagnosed with Meniere’s disease. Their suspicion was that triglycerides and cholesterol, as well as glucose and insulin, may have an impact on tinnitus and hearing. The study also reported a statistically significant number of patients taking the cholesterol drug Atorvastatin showed improvements in tinnitus, although not an improvement in overall hearing levels. The initial research indicates that having healthier serum levels may improve symptoms of tinnitus. It communicates in one way or another with nearly every part of the neck, face and torso including portions of the Glossopharyngeal nerve (throat and swallowing) and the seventh facial nerve which carries impulses of facial sensation. In VNS, small electrical pulses are delivered to the Vagus nerve via a pulse generator implanted in the neck. Three of these sufferers had a 44% reduction in the impact the illness was having on their daily lives. This study is one of many showing that nerve stimulation, when used in conjunction with cognitive and behavioral retraining, may be the golden ticket for new treatments to relieve the symptoms of tinnitus.
Sound is ultimately a neurological process stimulated by the mechanical movements in the middle and inner ear.
While a single sound event has been known to cause tinnitus, it most commonly results from long-term exposure to loud noises, especially “impact sounds”.
It is not clear whether the resulting ringing comes from a malfunction of the hair cell itself, damage to the underlying nerve or both, but the results are the same; a constant, potentially maddening buzz.
The eardrum and bones of the middle ear translate the air vibrations into movements of the inner ear membranes. In some cases it arises from interference of the mechanical movement of the inner ear, while in others it directly affects the hair cells or nerves.
Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) have a long standing reputation for causing transient tinnitus, as do sedatives, anti-depressants, quinines and over 200 other medications. In other words, changing your thought patterns over time actually has the effect of rearranging neurons. He discovered that by helping people to retrain and reinterpret the thoughts around their Tinnitus, anxiety and depression symptoms began to improve. These impulses are then further processed based on things like location to the listener, volume and quality to determine what’s “important” and what can be ignored.
Like a subwoofer, the canal itself creates resonances which amplify or reduce specific frequencies. This is one reason we can locate sound and “tune-out” background noise like ignoring someone else’s conversation at a party. When an obvious link in the chain is disrupted, for example with acoustic neuroma, the targeting of treatment is relatively straightforward.
Much study has gone into whether vitamins, minerals and other dietary issues can lead to tinnitus.
Research has looked into nutrient levels as they relate to tinnitus and into supplementation as a solution to its frustrating symptoms. While the evidence for supplementation to improve tinnitus was not examined in this particular study, maintaining healthy levels of B12 may be helpful for avoiding the illness and preventing it from worsening. The studies however have not been able to come to a consensus as to a relationship between zinc and tinnitus. The goal was to investigate hearing loss prevention and the subsequent development of tinnitus.
Studies regarding magnesium as a treatment for existing tinnitus have not shown much benefit to date but research continues. Certainly, a healthier lifestyle including improved diet and exercise is always beneficial to those suffering chronic illness. Whether or not diet is the source, the good news is that what you eat may help improve your symptoms.
Some suspect tinnitus results from restrictions to blood flow, whether from blockage or genetically small blood vessels.
Reductions in salt are a common recommendation for some illnesses such as Meniere’s disease, and may have benefits for peripheral blood flow as well. The hormones triggered by exercise have growth and healing effects for tissues that have been or are being damaged. Tinnitus is caused from a variety of problems ranging from hearing loss to injury, and has been the subject of extensive research into both its causes and potential treatments. In hearing loss induced tinnitus, the sound transcribing hair cells of the ear are destroyed and stop sending their signal to the brain. Serotonin and glutamate are well known excitatory neurotransmitters, with GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) being one of the common inhibitory neurotransmitters. Some of these include enhancing GABA receptor function in the auditory cortex, increasing GABA synthesis, and slowing re-uptake or enzymatic degradation of the neurotransmitter. While the effect on chronic illness of the steroids, antibacterials and artificial feeds often found in factory farming is still unclear, choosing to avoid these can be a healthy precaution.
Other anti-inflammatory nutrients under investigation include turmeric, ginger, dandelion, oregano, garlic and green tea. B12 is also a cog in the creation of Melatonin, which may improve tinnitus symptoms and provide better sleep. It’s important when beginning any regime of holistic medicine to do your research and investigate both the good and the bad. As with most idiopathic nerve problems, the cause of one person’s tinnitus may differ completely from another’s. Treatments directed at each of these causes can be found in traditional and holistic medicine – the benefits of which are subjective to the sufferer. As an example (and to our great fortune) aspirin (salicylic acid) was discovered in the home remedy brews made from willow bark.
Vitamin B-12 has been getting a lot of press lately regarding tinnitus and it’s hard to make sense of all the new information.
But some argue that more mild insufficiencies may contribute subtly to degenerative illnesses. Cobalamin must be bound to protein during digestion, absorption and transportation through the blood. It should also be noted that the study did not address whether supplementing with B-12 is protective or restorative, or if deficient B-12 simply left the hearing more vulnerable.
While the journals report no evidence that taking excessive B-12 is hazardous, a person is concerned about B-12 should work with their doctor and a nutritional specialist to determine the concern, cause and the need to take action.
Recent research has identified some of the potential relationships between tinnitus and diet. Research has been progressing on this subject and has been coming to some surprising and some not-so-surprising conclusions. It’s difficult to say if insulinemia is related in the same way to hearing loss and tinnitus alone. Improving one’s diet will certainly have a positive effect on blood flow and energy which is always a positive in any chronic health condition.
Researchers have been investigating the possibility that tinnitus may be related to a disparity in the brain’s processing of hearing and tactile (touch) nerve impulses. During one study conducted by the University Hospital Antwerp, Belgium, tinnitus patients received two and a half hours of VNS every day for 20 days. By definition tinnitus is a false signal sent to the brain, and as with any complicated biological mechanism there are multiple points of failure that can create the phantom noise. Problems such as infections, cholestomas (growths in the middle ear) and eustachian tube dysfunction can all lead to tinnitus.
The nerves leading from the inner ear to the brain may also be directly influenced by things such as acoustic neuroma, a small benign tumor that presses against them.
This might seem surprising; however, this is the very same mechanism through which all learning occurs. All information in the lesions section comes from individuals that have dealt with extreme skin problems and have found ways of managing them using non-pharma products.
The vibration causes change in the intracellular (inside the cell) potassium and calcium levels, releasing neurotransmitters that stimulate electro-chemical impulses down the hearing nerves. As a part of this process, the brain also sends impulses back to the ear (efferent impulses) which change how the hair cells respond to sound by physically changing their shape and how they respond to ions. While the jury is still out, there is a growing body of evidence that maintaining a healthy diet with a full complement of nutrients is beneficial.
It’s rare that supplementing is harmful and many doctors recommend daily supplementation for improved general health. For idiopathic (unknown) tinnitus, lifestyle changes including exercise and diet are often effective. In the brain’s attempt to reconcile this loss the cortex neurons become hyperactive – creating the sensation of constant sound (tinnitus). Blood flow restriction and inflammation are common suspects in tinnitus and a number of vitamins and lifestyle recommendations address this. B6 is well known for its role in energy production, while the other B-vitamins are needed to assemble proteins and nucleic acids. With this said, many non-traditional treatments are showing solid potential for relief of your ringing ears. For this reason therapy plans are usually dictated by the underlying medical condition leading to tinnitus – whether from injury, an inner ear disorder or any of dozens of other pathologies. Enzymes and their co-factors are not destroyed when they do their work, nor are they added to the final product, so they can be reused until they break down. Being below this level for long-term can lead to symptoms including megaloblastic anemia and neurological symptoms like numbness in the hands and feet, gait disturbances (problems walking) and even changes to taste and vision. A transcobalamin II receptor is used by peripheral cells to take it from the bloodstream, with about 50% of B-12 ending up in the liver for storage. Some believe the real culprit is chronic high or low glucose levels with insulinemia either leading to the fluctuations or resulting from it. Volunteers were placed on a diet plan tailored for them individually which was intended to reduce serum cholesterol, triglycerides and maintain more consistent glucose levels. Treatments based on external stimulation of these nerves have shown promise for a return to silence. The electrical stimulation was paired with audible tones that excluded the hearing frequencies where the tinnitus was active. Otosclerosis for example is an illness affecting as many as 1% of the people in the United States. This interference leads to specific frequency of tinnitus that is often helpful in its diagnosis.
And Tinnitus Cognitive Retraining Therapy harnesses your brain’s learning power by directing it to follow new adaptive pathways that in turn lead to significant relief from tinnitus symptoms over the course of treatment.
Voice communications average around the 2000Hz range and the ear canal amplifies this peak. In these cases, it will take time to eliminate the factors leading to such strongly differing results. Bao describes this phenomenon as similar to “phantom limb syndrome” where amputees continue to feel sensation from the missing limb.
Avoiding vasoconstrictors (which make blood vessels contract) such as caffeine is common, as are supplements such as the bioflavinoids and ginko biloba which both have a vasodilating effect. Others think insulin may be the cause and better blood insulin control will be an effective treatment.
In otosclerosis, the bones of the middle ear grow over time to become misshapen and interfere with normal hearing function. Changes in the shape of this acoustic chamber (as well as changes to the external ear) can alter the location of this peak, causing a distortion in sound.
Every day new and amazing discoveries are made although it will be some time before the mysteries of the ear, hearing and balance fully unravel. However, the trend in zinc studies so far is that (again) an existing deficiency in zinc may leave one susceptible to tinnitus (especially in the elderly) and supplementation in these cases may lead to improvement. It’s this last observation that leads to the first of two exciting new possibilities for treatment. The analogy here is a balance scale, where sand is constantly being added and subtracted from both sides and the overall activity of the neuron being the weight at any given moment. Research continues to determine exactly how insulin, glucose and inner ear function are related.
The mix will not stop new itch spots or bumps and lumps, but it will get RID of existing ones without leaving a trace.


Without proper flora the body is open to many different type of skin infections since the flora is our immune defense against invaders.
You can also open capsules of probiotics and not just one since you are covering a large area Beware that in the morning the liquid will have absorbed into your skin or evaporated leaving lots of crumbs and it's messy. I also learned and am not surprised that scientists are discovering that humans are missing certain key bacteria from the skin that the human body requires. There is also a clinical trial underway to study the skin of children across USA."??Posted Oct. At the store I found Absorbine Jr Cream and although it did burn for about 2-3 minutes after a short amount of time enduring I found it to be soothing and took the itching and pain away. After a few days of applying 2-3 times per day I found that it actually pulled out alot of all the horrible things that were under the massive very deep crusted lesions on my arm (can be seen before and after photo).After some success I began looking at the ingredients and determined all the natural things that it was made from, one of which was camphor (another good one is wormwood and aloe), and began trying other over the counter camphor based items by looking at the percentage of camphor within each product. The ones I currently have now are all microscopic and can no longer be seen with the naked eye. However I will say that while the camphor I believe is helping to rid my internal system, it also has a price of the purging and expelling (so it has not been an easy pain free task), but I know I am healing. The camphor bottle has a stopper in the top allowing only one drop at a time, and once I did get too many drops which caused a euphoric sensation through my body. Again everything in moderation!!I also use a bottle of Vaposteam in hot baths for soaking that has camphor.
The oil in the camphor and the aroma baths soften the skin, pull the fibers out, clear the sinuses, and help relax for a good nights sleep as well. Much to my amazement I actually saw tons of blue fibers pour out of the lesion right before my eyes (I had never seen them come out of my body like that, usually when fiber bundles were present with the naked eye I would wake in the morning to find them there).After several months of taking it internally I had concerns that I may be hurting my blood, kidneys or liver and told my doctor what I was doing and requested referrals for urinalysis and bloodwork.
Just as a test I stopped taking it once and within a week the clumps of fibers returned, so I began again which took another week for it to get back in my system to get relief again. I sometimes now take a break for a day or two if I am doing good, but don't go more than 2 days without at least a few drops.Disclaimer I am not advising anyone to use any of the items I choose to use for myself, you and you alone are responsible for your own healing and research, I am merely telling what has worked for me!?Posted Oct. She used this formula on the face and on the eyelids with no problem and claims her eyebrows and eyelashes are growing back.
Her before and after photo shows the improvement, but I am not publishing them as it reveals her face. Her formula contains DMSO which some feel is controversial, so do your own research and decide if it's the right direction for you.
This is the only thing that ever worked without destroying my skin.I got onto the idea of DMSO. It is a carrier and contrary to what experts say it is not harmful, you can research it yourself if you haven't already done so.
I believe the DMSO carries the other oils deep into the skin and  kills the "what ever they are". You won't be able to get them all out and yes some may die in the skin and cause a breakout, but over time is will subside. It's taken me over a year now as certain section of my face were harder to deal with specifically the chin and cheeks. You don't have to wash your face but rinse it and apply a very thin layer at night before you go to bed. It seems now that I may never be rid of this completely but it is manageable. I was using antibiotics and I'd have to smear it on everyday and still not get rid of this and those antibiotics are not good for you. Most of my pores are tight like they were when I was young. FAR Infrared Using a FAR infrared sauna suit, Donna Staehr was able to clear up lesions that had been present for two years all over her body. With her permission, I'm sharing her "before" and "after" photos as well as her story (in italics).
I couldn't breath properly, couldn't even walk to my letterbox without puffing and wheezing.
I'm still not healed, but it's more maintenance now, and these days I'm trying to fix all the damage done to the body—a long road as you know. If I had to buy a unit right now, I would not purchase this unit again but would go for a suit or blanket that envelopes the entire body as I think these would be much more effective then having a pad. Learn how Infrared Therapy will benefit your healthHow does Far Infrared Therapy really work?The infrared light increases cellular metabolic rates by triggering mitochondria activity.
The build up of toxins in a health body could block the normal blood circulation and impair the cellular energy.
When FIR waves are applied, the water molecules that encapsulate the toxins get heat up, and start to vibrate.
This vibration reduces the ion bonds of the atoms that are holding together the molecules of water.
Scientists in Japan report that in the FIR treatment of clogged capillary vessels, heat expands the capillaries and then initiates the start of a process to dissolve hidden toxins.
Far Infrared thereby promotes elimination of fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood: Poisons, carcinogenic heavy metals - toxic substances from food processing - lactic acid, free fatty acids, and subcutaneous fat associated with aging and fatigue - excess sodium associated with hypertension - and uric acid which causes pain.
Furthermore, if sebaceous glands are activated, accumulated cosmetics in pores can be eliminated through the skin (sweat and oil glands) rather than by the kidneys.3) Far Infrared stimulates enzyme activity and metabolism - One hour under the Hotouse improves metabolism. Furthermore, it increases growth of cells, DNA syntheses, and protein synthesis all necessary during tissue repair and regeneration. Excellent for healing burns, scar tissue and skin problems.6) Far Infrared relieves nervous tension and relax autoneuro muscles thereby helping the body make the most of its intended healing abilities. I am mentioning this because people with Morgellons know they flair when they sweat and it was like that for me as well but NOT when I sweated from FIR. It is the furthest red on the spectrum and that spectrum of light is a very healing kind of light for humans and animals too.Incidentally the military has used FIR for ages for detoxification purposes. I always thought it was normal for me to run low, as I can never remember not running low.It doesn't seem to be normal though, because now that it's up, it stays up, I'm feeling good. None of this is medical advice and all of it is based on only my own VERY un-scientific observations. His experience is that if lesions ooze onto clothing, you can spread the infection via the fabric. Sometimes I back the square with another square which is "dry" on the back of the first honey soaked dressing square. I treat new lesions immediatly before they get worse. The manuka honey        One unique advantage is manuka honeys ability to rapidly re-granulate the wound after the expulsion process. It also has the unique ability to stimulate immune cells at the wound site, something that no over-the-counter or Rx product can do. This works well for me because I do not have to endure pain as previously, because manuka honey is an excellect analgesic. Massage it in and they come to the surface before they can grow laterally in the skin layers. When he tells me he finds something that works, I pay particular attention because he has been hitting this disease hard.
Tests on the morg bacteria on slides shows that it does kill the bacteria that makes the gels. Had a major breakout of lesions on one side of my face. Sure enough, there are those courageous and marginally insane folks who refuse to succumb to the drill and are healing their own teeth. It was tough, and at times scary but the tooth did heal." I'd like to share my experience with oil pulling using coconut oil. Three or four times in the three years since getting Morgellons, a sore has popped up on the roof of my mouth near the teeth.
In the past, it has taken up to two weeks to fully go away because brushing the teeth rips open the sore which bleeds. The last time I got one of these sores I decided (after two days) to begin coconut pulling. I swished the oil around 20 minutes? in the morning upon awakening and in the evening before bed.
Since then, I've continued to do coconut pulling at least once in the morning.? I have to admit, I'm pretty obsessive when it comes to my teeth.
Things I have used on my teeth over time. Bentonite clay Rub the gums with it before bed (and leave it in the mouth).
It's fine if you end up swallowing it in your sleep as it's very healthy and helps with detoxification. For those that take Bentonite internally as a detoxifier, note that it should be taken away from supplements.Garlic is a natural antibiotic I have experimented with extensively for fighting infection both internally and externally for years and can attest to it's antibiotic properties. I've used this method on my teeth before I even had Morgellons with good results. If you feel you've got a serious infection in your tooth, taking garlic internally, might be a secondary support to your system. Make sure there is food in your stomach before ingesting raw garlic as it can burn in the most brutal fashion. Use only a half clove (or less) at a time to make sure your stomach is okay before taking a whole clove. Also, some cultures like the Chinese, believe too much garlic overstimulates the liver, which can cause fitful sleep.
If you have a bad abcess in the mouth, and feel the infection has progressed to a serious stage, you will need to determine if antibiotics are the way to go. I had a really bad infection (pre-Morgellons) that I took antibiotics for and feel that was the best choice at the time.
At the time of writing, I believed that I had had some sort of infestation in my apartment. However, if you do have a bug problem in your environment, these tips should get rid of it.
I've written more about the need to get confirmation that there really is a problem in your environment on the "Reflections" page.
Do not breathe in the fumes if you can help it and don't stay in any room you are treating!
Make a point of using them in sealed areas or bins and open windows or use an exhaust fan to ventilate afterwards. Some people buy the diffusers that have a candle in them.

The whole idea behind using the bin with crystals is that you want to kill anything in the laundry BEFORE you put it in the wash so that you are not exposing yourself to re-infection when you handle it at the washer.
You'll get the feel for how much you should use over time. After the clothing has been mentholating for a few hours, you can reach in and turn the laundry ensuring that everything in the bin has been well exposed to the menthol.
When you are ready to turn off the heating element, pull the plug rather than opening the bin. This works well—especially if you have things like down coats.You can do your shoes this way too or any other items you are unsure of!
Using menthol crystals on furniture (such as a couch) —Buy a big plastic drop-cloth from a hardware store with as thick a plastic as is available and 'TENT' your couch. I wouldn't make a habit of wearing unwashed mentholated clothing as I believe it is unhealthy to inhale the vapors over a long period. Some people have tried to mentholate rooms. Open dresser draws, closet doors, and try to keep in mind that you want to make sure as much air circulation gets around things as possible.
Don't do this if you have fishtanks in the room, and make sure to protect your pets by keeping them out. Computer Equipment —I disassembled all my equipment including cords and put them into a big bin with mothballs.
It did the trick.Mothballs are nasty and toxic, this is a last resort solution and I suggest you do your best to limit exposure especially when it comes to inhaling. Also, note that certain plastic foams will absorb the odor of the mothballs and there is no way to get that smell out.
If you have a problem in an isolated area such as a room, I'd put a bin right outside the door with diatomaceous earth? in it, or methol crystals. I encourage those wanting to interact with others in the Morgellons communtiy to join the forum (or the many other Facebook groups).
