Late on the night of September 23rd, Clifford Carnicom, founder and president of Carnicom Institute, set out by train from Spokane, Washington to attend the 2014 United States Health Freedom Congress in St. Paul Minnesota. He was invited by Diane Miller, JD, Director of Law and Public Policy for the National Health Freedom Coalition (NHFC), and the National Health Freedom Action. These organizations bring together leaders from across the country who are working toward health freedoms and the legislation which can secure these freedoms for people in the United States. Clifford was honored to be invited and to offer a view of his work to people unfamiliar with it. At the same time, he was eager to learn about the work of the other members. I interviewed Clifford upon his return.
I have the responsibility to provide a certain level of detail regarding the planned research and operations for Carnicom Institute during the upcoming year. The primary issue of discussion is the balance between active research and the presentation of that same research to the public. The current situation is that the pace of research during the first half of this year has exceeded the capabilities of the Institute to present and disclose the results of that same research to the public. It is something to be grateful for that such a body of work is in place. The situation is not problematic but the lag is probably on the order of four to six months of work at this time. This dilemma will force certain decisions to be made as to what must be sacrificed with the available resources to achieve the greatest good. The immediate instinct is often to pursue the research needs in the most earnest fashion, as discoveries of some type occur on almost every day of business within this laboratory and associated work. Some of these discoveries are compelling and profound from a scientific standpoint, but the scientific methods demand that such fascinations be held in reserve until they are reliably replicated over a period of time. This is the nature of the work and this has always been the case; however, we must also not assume that infinite time for review and deliberation of our questions and discoveries remain.
A method has been established that shows promise of being effective in removing significant masses of biofilm that encapsulate large quantities of the "cross-domain bacteria" (CDB) as they have been identified and designated by this researcher. This method applies to oral cavities only and it is simple to investigate as to its efficacy. The identification of the CDB has been confirmed by microscopy; one unique feature of this organism is the frequent co-linear arrangement of the bacteria within an encasing filament. The various stages of growth of this life form have been documented extensively on this site, and a progression of development is understood. The term "Morgellons" as popularly used, is insufficient to characterize both the uniqueness of the life form and its ubiquity in the environment. The term "cross-domain bacteria" (i.e., CDB) has been established as being intrinsic to the origin of the life form; attention has been called to the the fact that the scientific nomenclature for this 'new biology' remains woefully inadequate. Any perception that this so-called "condition" is restricted to the human species is false; planetary consequences are before us. Please refer to earlier discussions that elevate the seriousness of this need for increased participation by the scientific and health communities.
Inhibition of growth of the so-called "Morgellons" condition in a cultured environment has been achieved. The primary agents of reduction here, both literally and chemically, are a series of powerful antioxidants. These include ascorbic acid (vitamin C), N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) and glutathione. The photograph below shows the result of a culturing process which has been subjected to these antioxidants and their impact upon growth; the effects are rapid and repeatable. The source of this culture is the result of a series of incubation, collection, isolation, extraction and purification processes applied to previous cultures. The original cultures are based upon the use of a variety of human, animal and plant samples, each of which produces identical growth forms. One of many precedents for this work is contained within a previous paper entitled, "Morgellons : A Discovery and A Proposal" (Feb 2010). The basis of the current work is a significant advancement in the development of culture methods.
We now begin the final phase of this paper, and this is to introduce, recall and compile a host of strategies and considerations that may be helpful to mitigate some of the impacts upon health by the Morgellons condition. Some of the work that has been done previously will also be incorporated into and repeated within this section; much of this work remains especially valuable and relevant here as well. It is important to understand that this information is derived from an individual research standpoint only, and that it does not represent any medical advice or diagnosis whatsoever.
