THE MORNING SHOW
Marianne Middelveen is a microbiologist and a medical mycologist in Calgary, Alberta, Canada currently working in the field of Veterinary Microbiology and specializing in bovine mastitis. She received post-graduate degrees in Microbial and Biochemical Science and in Environmental Science from Georgia State University and University of Calgary, respectively.
Ms. Middelveen’s interest in Morgellons began when she came across the website of Ginger Savely, DNP. Ground-breaking articles on Morgellons co-authored by Middelveen and Raphael Stricker, MD were published in Nov., 2011 and May, 2012. Research is continuing from this team and will be submitted to peer- reviewed medical journals for publication when completed.
We’ve heard about Morgellons disease from our regular guest, Tony Pantalleresco. What is this mystery illness and where did it come from? This is what The Charles E. Holman Morgellons Disease Foundation has to say about it on it’s website:
“… is a multi-symptom disease that is just now starting to be researched and understood. Morgellons has a real physical pathology … despite of the fact that the exact cause is not known.” – Randy S Wymore, PhD
“…is an emerging multisystem illness characterized by the presence of filamentous fibers of undetermined composition, both in lesions and subdermal. The etiology of Morgellons disease is unknown.” – Marianne J. Middelveen, MDes, and Raphael B. Stricker, MD
“… Morgellons patients looked ill with neurological symptoms, which included confusion, difficulty walking and controlling their feet (foot drop), and a sagging mouth when speaking…” – Rhonda Casey, DO
“… disease of unknown pathology characterized by sensations of crawling, biting and stinging, disfiguring lesions and unusual fibers coming out of the skin, usually, quickly dismissed by physicians as DOP (Delusions of Parasitosis)…” – Ginger Savely, DNP
-What are the little fibers made of found in the skin of sufferers of Morgellons? Believe it or not, the body is actually making them. Marianne explains why the body produces too much collagen and keratin
