On unknowncountry.com, we've been reporting on the mystery of Morgellons disease. Physicians have been divided about whether or not this is a real disease, but Dr. George Schwartz says he has developed an anti-parasitic treatment program that can cure it, if started early enough in the course of the disease.
Morgellons was at first assumed to be a psychiatric delusion because the thread-like fibers that are exuded from the body appear to be comprised of cellulose, which the human body is not capable of producing. Dr. Schwartz has discovered that these fibers may be an early, cocoon stage of a parasite.
People who live in a house or spend a lot of time in a room with a patient who has Morgellons may be at risk of catching it. For instance, one family in which several members had Morgellons moved out of a house. The family who later moved into the house several months later all came down with the disease.
Schwartz says, "I believe the disease is either new or very old and has emerged due to global warming. For example, it could be like a plague of the Egyptians thousands of years ago."
