Dr. Weeks’ Comment: Many of us carry a tender spot in our younger hearts for artists who committed their talent to improving the lot of her or his fellow earthlings. Joni Mitchell, one of those influential talents whose offering, A Case of You, still calms me down (treat yourself to a listen) now has Morgellon’s disease and conventional medical care has been disrespectfully unable and unwilling to help her address an illness which most dermatologists still believe is psychiatric.
“Denial of Morgellons disease will go down in history as one of the most shameful acts of unethical conduct by our nation’s health agencies and medical system.” Cindy Casey-Holman, RN, Director of the CEHMDF.
An increasing number of scientists and doctors acknowledge that Morgellon’s is a systemic disease and they urge us to “Look up and See” pointing to the delivery of these infectious agents is through what is termed Climate Engineering, Aerosol Geoengineering, SRM Geoengineering (Solar Radiation Management Geoengineering), SPICE (Stratospheric Particle Injection Climate Engineering), Chemtrails, and HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) but is commonly known as chemtrails. Russell Blaylock, a respected neurosurgeon who understands that prevention is the best cure has been warning about chemtrails causing neurological diseases since 2012. His comments follow this article below.
In 2010, Mitchell told a reporter at the Los Angeles Times that she has a “weird, incurable disease that seems like it’s from outer space.” She said the condition is the reason why she often hides from the public eye. Mitchell described seeing “fibers in a variety of colors protrude out of my skin like mushrooms after a rainstorm: they cannot be forensically identified as animal, vegetable or mineral.”
“Morgellons is a slow, unpredictable killer — a terrorist disease: it will blow up one of your organs, leaving you in bed for a year,” she continued. “Morgellons is always diagnosed as ‘delusion of parasites,’ and they send you to a psychiatrist. I’m actually trying to get out of the music business to battle for Morgellons sufferers to receive the credibility that’s owed to them.” (Source) (Thanks to Elana Freeland for info on this situation)
Joni Mitchell’s Morgellons Battle Aided by Research from Charles E. Holman Morgellons Disease Foundation
Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 07, 2015
Joni Mitchell’s emergency hospitalization last week has people talking about the controversial disease she has been reporting for years. Many in the medical community continue to think it is a delusional condition despite research funded by The Charles E. Holman Morgellons Disease Foundation (CEHMDF) that is published in peer-reviewed medical journals. (1)
Morgellons Disease (MD) is a multi-system illness uniquely characterized by the formation of unusual fibers within the skin. MD is a debilitating, and often misunderstood, condition consisting of slow-healing skin lesions, overwhelming fatigue, GI disturbances and an array of neurological deficits.
A growing list of scientific studies proves that Morgellons disease is real. (1) At the recent Morgellons Medical Conference in Austin, TX, scientists from around the world presented evidence substantiating Morgellons disease to be a true medical illness and identified bacterial pathogens involved. “These patients suffer from a miserable chronic illness, and the medical establishment’s response is to kick them in the teeth,” said Dr. Raphael Stricker, a San Francisco internist with over 100 Morgellons patients in his practice. “The sad part is that when these patients are treated properly, they can recover.”
Microbiologist Marianne Middelveen from Canada presented study research data showing that the fibers in skin lesions from Morgellons patients are real. (2) “These are not clothing or textile fibers, but something made by the patient’s own cells,” said Middelveen. “In essence, the body is overproducing these weird fibers.” (2)
Virginia Savely, DNP has treated approximately 800 patients with Morgellons and has studied it for over 13 years. She states, “Any doctor who calls Morgellons a psychiatric condition has clearly not looked carefully at the skin with 60-100x lighted magnification and seen the characteristic fibers woven below the outer surface of intact skin. These patients are sick with a painful, debilitating illness and diagnosing them as delusional is nothing less than malpractice. Morgellons is a very real infection that responds to antibiotic treatment.”
The publicity surrounding Morgellons has dimmed since the 2012 CDC report. Theirs was a very preliminary effort to investigate this emerging infectious disease according to the CEHMDF. The $334,000 provided to the CDC by the US Government was an unfortunate waste of taxpayer dollars. As expected, the study offered no new insights and led many to believe the door was closed on this topic.
Close the door? The Holman Foundation along with thousands of suffering victims didn’t think so. Even the CDC admitted “…. We were not able to conclude based on this study whether this unexplained dermopathy represents a new condition, as has been proposed by those who use the term Morgellons, or wider recognition of an existing condition such as delusional infestation, with which it shares a number of clinical and epidemiologic features [26–31].” (3) Recommendations from the often-ignored Report of the External Peer Review of CCID’s Unexplained Dermopathy (UD) Project included these suggestions:”What should the priorities be in the future? … Physicians encountering patients who may have this condition should be encouraged to publish in a peer-reviewed medical journal a description of a carefully documented case. Photographs of fibers extruding from (or present within) normal intact skin, detailed histopathologic examination of biopsied skin specimens, and thorough analysis of the fibers will be especially helpful in clarifying several lingering questions.…” (3)
The CDC panel’s suggestion to continue researching Morgellons and publish in peer-reviewed medical journals is exactly what the Holman Foundation has done and will continue to do. It is sad that Joni Mitchell’s talent and health had to be place in jeopardy for the reality and facts of Morgellons to be in the spotlight. “Denial of Morgellons disease will go down in history as one of the most shameful acts of unethical conduct by our nation’s health agencies and medical system.” Cindy Casey-Holman, RN, Director of the CEHMDF.

here is what respected neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. thinks about those persistent chemtrails in the skies
Chemtrails, Nanoaluminum, and Neurodegenerative and Neurodevelopmental Effects
By Russell L. Blaylock, M.D.
August 23, 2012
Nanoparticles of aluminum are infinitely more reactive and can easily penetrate the brain
The internet is littered with stories of “chemtrails” and geoengineering to combat “global warming”; and, until recently, I took these stories with a grain of salt. One of the main reasons for my skepticism was that I rarely saw what they were describing in the skies. But over the past several years I have noticed a great number of these trails and I have to admit they are not like the contrails I grew up seeing in the skies. They are extensive, quite broad, are laid in a definite pattern, and slowly evolve into artificial clouds. Of particular concern is that there are now so many – dozens every day are littering the skies.
My major concern is that there is evidence that they are spraying tons of nanosized aluminum compounds. It has been demonstrated in the scientific and medical literature that nanosized particles are infinitely more reactive and induce intense inflammation in a number of tissues. Of special concern is the effect of these nanoparticles on the brain and spinal cord, as a growing list of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) are strongly related to exposure to environmental aluminum.
Nanoparticles of aluminum are not only infinitely more inflammatory, they also easily penetrate the brain by a number of routes, including the blood and olfactory nerves (the smell nerves in the nose). Studies have shown that these particles pass along the olfactory neural tracts, which connect directly to the area of the brain that is not only most affected by Alzheimer’s disease, but also the earliest affected in the course of the disease. It also has the highest level of brain aluminum in Alzheimer’s cases.
The intranasal route of exposure makes spraying of massive amounts of nanoaluminum into the skies especially hazardous, as it will be inhaled by people of all ages, including babies and small children for many hours. We know that older people have the greatest reaction to this airborne aluminum. Because of the nanosizing of the aluminum particles being used, home-filtering systems will not remove the aluminum, thus prolonging exposure, even indoors.
In addition to inhaling nanoaluminum, such spraying will saturate the ground, water, and vegetation with high levels of aluminum. Normally, aluminum is poorly absorbed from the GI tract; but nanoaluminum is absorbed in much higher amounts. This absorbed aluminum has been shown to be distributed to a number of organs and tissues including the brain and spinal cord. Inhaling this environmentally suspended nanoaluminum will also produce tremendous inflammatory reaction within the lungs, which will pose a significant hazard to children and adults with asthma and pulmonary diseases.
I pray that the pilots who are spraying this dangerous substance fully understand that they are destroying the lives and health of their families as well. This is also true of our political officials. Once the soil, plants, and water sources are heavily contaminated there will be no way to reverse the damage that has been done.
Steps need to be taken now to prevent an impending health disaster of enormous proportions if this project is not stopped immediately. Otherwise we will see an explosive increase in neurodegenerative diseases occurring in adults and the elderly in unprecedented rates as well as neurodevelopmental disorders in our children. We are already seeing a dramatic increase in these neurological disorders and it is occurring in younger people more than ever before.
