Head lice myths and treatment

Original Source: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/head-lice-myths-treatment-1.3238904 Do you feel something crawling along your scalp? Are you sure? What's that itchy sensation on your head? Head lice is one of the ickiest things you're likely to find on someone's noggin, and one that many families will face as children head back to school. They will also likely face many myths about the blood-sucking parasites. One that's making the rounds is the theory put out by a couple of U.S. doctors that teenagers are spreading lice thanks to putting their heads together for selfies. "I think they've forgotten their own teenage years. Teens like being together in close proximity doing other things than selfies," said Dr. Raj Bhardwaj, adding lice don't move that quickly. He also threw cold water on the idea that lice would...

Tick season again – Western North Dakotans see a rise in parasitic pests this year

Source: http://www.grandforksherald.com/outdoors/wildlife/3761495-tick-season-again-western-north-dakotans-see-rise-parasitic-pests-year THEODORE ROOSEVELT NATIONAL PARK -- Growing up in the area, John Heiser said he never saw as many wood ticks as he does now in the field. These days, he said, he spots tons. "There are more wood ticks now than I ever saw as a youngster," Heiser said. He is not alone. Many North Dakotans are already claiming this year's tick season to be worse than previous years. It is reportedly easy to spot droves of them among the tall grass and in the woods, not to mention clinging to a person's skin afterward. Through latching onto and burrowing into a host's skin, ticks can transmit diseases such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and anaplasma. According to the North Dakota Department of Health's Center for...

Morgellons: Expert Says Awareness and Early Treatment are Paramount

Morgellons: Expert Says Awareness and Early Treatment are Paramount Image via Wikipedia Natural News By: Barbara L. Minton (NaturalNews) Morgellons is a terrifying disease reaching pandemic status. Yet because the symptoms of the disease are so bizarre, people who have it tend to withdraw and become isolated from society. With mysterious fibers and parasites coming through lesions in their skin, Morgellons sufferers often live in fear. As a result there is no pressure on the medical establishment to become educated about the disease, and most practitioners continue to view it as isolated instances of delusional parasitosis. Because Morgellons affects cognitive functioning and the ability to communicate, its victims are often unable to advocate for themselves, and few are knowledgeable or willing to advocate for them.

Morgellons Sufferer Speaks Out

Morgellons.org “I have heard about your Morgellons Research Foundation from a TV program on CNN. I think my son Robert had the symptoms of Morgellons. My son Robert was born December.

Jonimitchell.com Fibres in a variety of colours protrude out of my skin like mushrooms after a rainstorm: they cannot be forensically identified as animal, vegetable or mineral.
