To some of nature’s creatures, the human body is just a warm moist nutritious habitat that they love to call home. But having some of these parasites living inside your body may not be an enjoyable situation. In fact, so few doctors can even diagnosis what you have that they may tell you it’s all in your head.
Serious parasitic skin conditions can get to the point that it drives the sufferer crazy with unexplained itching and biting sensations that goes on indefinitely. In fact they can even leave non healing open lesions that bleed and leak and leave a calling card of strange fibers on the body.
Richard Kuhns is one of those who went through the ringer trying to figure out what was wrong with him and how to get well. He went through several years of first trying to identify what was ailing him and second how to treat it and get rid of it.
“There are very few doctors even skin specialists, who really know how to recognize and treat these parasites,” Kuhns said.
Generally when infected by these organisms, one’s first action is to turn to the family physician to run some routine tests. The doctor usually will then refer the patient to a dermatologist, parasitologist, or infectious disease specialist.
Further blood tests and biopsies are ordered but will usually show nothing.
In the mean time, sufferers will often rip off the skin from a lesion hoping microscopic analysis will show the infecting organism.
Analysis again reveals nothing.
Often times, the patient may be diagnosed with delusions of parasitosis and prescribed drugs for mental depression and anxiety.
With diagnosis being so difficult to achieve very few doctors recognize the sufferers’ symptoms as real instead of delusional, and even then they only know how to approach this new phenomenon through the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme (borellia) and protozoan (babesia) infection which often is a result of the parasitic infection.
Even the CDC is only beginning to do serious studies of diseases like Morgellon’s and even then, it’s only in response to public and media pressure.
Richard Kuhns believes he contracted an unidentified parasitic infection in the early 90’s while working in his back yard, from a cloud of dust dislodged from a near by tree as he pulled a vine from it.
While not a physician, he is chemical engineer and the Director of the Stress Management Institute in Red Bank, New Jersey. He is an intelligent man who was forced to take things into his own hands and he researched and studied what he could do on his own.
After having been prescribed many anti-parasitic medications, drugs containing Lindane, Diproline, Elemite, sulfa drugs… with no lasting relief, he found that the parasites have food preferences. So he created a special diet and sought to starve the parasites that inhabited his body.
He learned that people can get control of the symptoms through an elimination diet coupled with bathing with specialized materials and through the right medical treatments.
Those who use the strict diet do in fact find relief from the relentless itching and biting symptoms for as long as they maintain the diet. He and many others now use it successfully to live a relatively normal life.
To help people with a similar plight, Kuhns has developed and maintains a detailed helpful online report describing what he and others have learned.
“My goal is to provide you a light at the end of that tunnel from my own personal experience. I can tell you that it’s not easy, but then again, anything is a “walk in the park” compared to how I suffered with the itching and biting.”
He has also created and tested a special program that uses diet, medical treatment, bathing, and disinfection protocols to help people deal with their problems independently and assertively. He has gone so far as to conduct a special survey of over 114 sufferers of similar parasitic infections throughout the world. His research indicates a possible link between heavy smokers and parasitic immunity. “I believe that nicotine may inhibit growth in these insidious parasites. More research is needed,” states Kuhns.
