The Carnicom 'protocol' for Morgellons was first alluded to in 2012 by Clifford Carnicom an independent researcher at /carnicominstitute.org/wp/morgellons-the-breaking-of-bonds-and-the-reduction-of-iron/
It primarily consists of NAC (n-acetyl cysteine) L-Carnosine, Vitamin C, and Whey Protein. His website is www.carnicominstitute.org where he discusses his findings. Acording to Carnicom the Morgellons invader that he tested has a very strong disulfide bond.
A variation of this protocol has appears on the Morgellons Shield website with an extra ingredient of Branch Chain Amino acids. I must admit the amount of NAC recommended in this version appears very low as Glutathione must be produced and utilized.
I would and do currently add sublingual Reduced Glutathione at bed time when it is best utilized to this protocol along with apple cider vinegar which is thought to protect the Glutathione from stomach acids which destroy it.
NAC is recommended as it is believed direct Glutathione supplementation is destroyed by the stomach acid requires its precursor and would result in higher levels of Glutathione but we also know the body needs other nutrients not present in the protocol below to aid in the production and utilization of Glutathione.morgellonsshield.com/morgellons-recovery-shield-1/
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) 600 mg capsules – take ONE capsule in the morning
L-Carnosine 500 mg capsules – take ONE capsule 3 times per day
Vitamin C (without rose hips) 1000mg capsules – take TWO capsules 4 times per day
BCAAs (Branch Chain Amino Acids) 1000 mg capsules – take TWO capsules 4 times per day
Whey Protein Powder – 1 scoop of a quality brand whey protein 4 times per day
Each item in the protocol plays a role in its function to disrupt the following process which Carnicom theorizes is taking place in the body.
He postulates that the Morgellon’s condition is in part due to a serious disruption in the amount of iron available in the human body. The "Morgellon’s growth” includes a harmful iron-dipeptide complex which results in a host of serious physiological and metabolic imbalances.
These imbalances are caused by the disruption of major body processes which include the regulation of metabolism by the thyroid, potential liver enlargement, a decrease of oxygen in the circulatory system, the disruption of the utilization of amino acids important to the body, the oxidation of iron, and a potential impact to neural pathways.
This creates a problem with iron transfer in our bodies. There are various forms of iron in the body. FE I, II, and III. Only FE II is usable to us. The Morgellon's structures keeps cycling the iron from the FE III form to I, and back again preventing the body from utilizing it thus stealing our iron.
The supplements he recommends are extremely important in breaking this harmful iron-dipeptide structure and allowing the body to begin absorbing iron correctly and stop the growth of this fungal like organism.
Of course it wont rid you of the extra bacteria, and other parasites that you likely attracted after becoming initially infected but after treating many of these additional infections and coming close to my previous state it seems this stubborn fungal element which mimics Bartonella is what remains, therefore I will be attempting this protocol and putting the family on it as soon as the supplements arrive as I am not making additional gains using herbal protocols.
After all maybe Bartonella is not responsible for all the symptoms that have been attributed to it and it is possible that Bartonella could be just be an accomplice or simply along for the ride or present and therefore being blamed for these symptoms which would explain why it is so difficult to clear using antibiotics. Also we have seen that some antibiotics have an antifungal properties to them.
We also know Bartonella and Mold sickness are indistinguishable so it is often assumed we have one or both and Lyme sufferers who cant get completely well are often said to havent addressed the mold (fungus).
We have learned that just about
all of Dr. Fry's patients who can afford the $1000 next gen DNA sequencing test positive for Funneliformis Mosseae which otherwise would not be detected but could it be that its the stubborn fungal component present in all of us suffering from this so called tick borne disease?
How often do doctors treat the fungal aspect which is likely to be present after a lifetime of using antibiotics but never having treated for fungus which naturally covers our bodies from head to toe?
There has been a fair amount of conjecture of people reporting success with this protocol with lesions healing whether they be from Bartonella, Morgellons, Yeasts, or Molds.
I dont know that the protocol can be considered a cure as it suggests that supplementation efforts may need to be permanent, but if I can steal back the nutrients that lead to the weakening of my immune system and thwart the fungus then some addtional treatments might actually succeed.
I would suggest that those who have had a difficult time clearing just the remaining afflictions attributed to Bartonella or so called Bartonella like organisms, might consider attempting the protocol as favorable results have been achieved in as little as two weeks.
My question since this protocol is not new, is has anyone had experience with this protocol that can provide any additional insights? Have there been additions, deletions, or noteworthy observations or compliments to it? Thoughts?
I will be revisiting this protocol upon the arrival of the additional supplements needed and will keep you updated.
