Morgellons Symptoms

By Jan Smith
Morgellons Victim
Dear Jeff,
Here is a doctor, Jeffrey Maffert, MD, who has done absolutely zero clinical research on Morgellons Disease and yet can diagnose what this disease IS NOT, and do it sight unseen. It appears that he is an experienced doctor with the great gift of being able to judge and dismiss what things are by merely looking at photos. No real medical research needed, I guess. Must be nice to be omnipotent. Sadly, for Morgellons victims, this is a pervasive medical attitude we are dealing with every day. I am adding the comparative photos he sent me to my research findings below.
He must think I am the villiage idiot to buy into his immediate dismissal of my data. This, again, is how the average 'medical mind' works and the world needs to understand it clearly. By the way, Meffert is a former Air Force doctor. He is also not saying that all Morgies are DOP, but he is certainly calling all of those who believe that Morgellons is related to nanotechnology or chemtrails, charlatans. In some ways, he is worse than a flat-out naysayer because he wants to gain the approval of the public by playing the caring physician. Another wolf in sheep's clothing.
In any case, interacting with him has been just another discouraging foray into the orthodox medical mind and 'professional' health industry. As you will see, he read what I had to say in my letters and discounted all of it on the spot...
Note - It seems the good Doctor will only open his welded-shut, arrogant mind when he starts picking fibers, gristle and goo out of lesions on his own body or that of his family. - ed
Jan's first letter:
Dear Dr Meffert,
I am yet another of " those people" with Morgellons Disease. I can assure you that I only wish that this disease was restricted to colored fibers. I hope you will take the time to read the recent paper I wrote that was sent to congress as a small part of a 200 page document that was written by researchers in the medical profession. Those researchers include toxicologists, neurologists (yes, people are getting brain lesions associated with this disease) pathologists and internal disease specialists.
I hope you will take a look at my portion of this paper and the over 55 photos of various manifestations of this disease. I know of no doctor who has actually studied this disease that is still saying that people have Delusions of Parasitosis. I feel that in order for you to make public statements condemning people with this disease that you owe it us to do the research before you make your judgments. If I thought that filling myself with piperazine laden psychotropic drugs was the answer I could have done that long ago. If you can explain to me why I have silicosis and that hairs on my body are coated in silicon when I have never had any silicone/silicon of any nature in my body, that would be interesting. All I can say is please do the research on actual afflicted victims before casting out harmful and denigrating opinions of people who are all ready suffering, largely due to the arrogance of the medical community and its refusal to accept the fact that this IS a new disease that you are not able to diagnose.
All of the photos in this paper were taken on an inexpensive digital microscopic camera and are not retouched or staged in any way. All I ask if for you to keep an open mind and take a look. http://www.nanotechdisease.com/JanSmithLetter.htm
I am well known in the Morgellons circles and do many radio broadcasts. I hope to hear from you.
Sincerely ,
Jan Smith
Dr Jeffrey Meffert's 1st Reply...
I will take a look at your link/paper but I take issue with several of your confrontational statements in this letter even though I have never met you nor been one of the doctors who let you down.
"still saying that people have Delusions of Parasitosis": Over and over again, I have been saying that DoP is the small minority of patients who feel they have that which is called morgellon's disease. Most patients have chronic, frustrating itchy skin problems and if DoP becomes part of the problem, it does so much later.
"condemning people with this disease ": Never have I condemned the patients. I have expressed frustration at the MRF who want everything their way. And I have condemned the charlatans who want to sell you biosensor realignment devices, "medical grade diatomaceous earth" to eat, and such nonsense, or just want you to send them money so they can look into the problem more..
By the way, your "claw nanotube" picture shows the legs and thorax of a demodex mite. It's a pretty crisp picture, though.
Typcial Demodex mite...
Jan Smith's Morgellons sample with 'claws'...
Demodex lives in all adult facial hair follicles and can occasionally cause inflammation but aren't otherwise dangerous and cannot burrow in the skin. Several of your other pictures also show demodex. If you put a drop of superglue on your nose, let it dry, and pull it off for examination under the microscope, you will find a lot of these tube like mites stuck to it. I'll take a look at other parts of your site later.
Dr Jeffrey Meffert's 2nd reply: an addendum to above reply:
The pentaconal faceted thing is wood/plant fiber in cross section. You can see this in a wooden match stick or the flower stem. if you slice it right.
Dr Jeffrey Meffert's 3rd email: another addendum
Me again. I looked at your site and it's not clear to me how you are determining that some of these things are silicon based. Some of the photos are textile fibers stuck in scabs. Others I would need some info on the context. Other than the demodex, plant parts, and hair, I don't see anything I would identify as alive. Perhaps the CDC can help.
On your pentaconal thing. Here is a plant cross section showing same
Dr. Maffert's photo...
Jan Smith's photos...
As for the nano machine it could be a bit of quartz or a paint chip but is most likely a piece of glass
(Top row: Jan Smith's amazing photos of three different, bizarre 'machines.' Note the fluorescent colored 'triangles' inside on the upper left. Now notice the image on the
right..it has been opened with a pin, and the center then touched with the pin tip. The center immediately LIT UP and began glowing a bright yellow color. Dr. Maffert dismissed the top three images...and suggested they are just pieces of 'glass' (his center photo) or 'quartz' or a 'paint chip' (bottom 2 images). We fail to find his explanation plausible in any way, or see any similarity in his photos and Jan's top three. -ed)
You say a machine. What have you seen it do?
PS: Re: "please do the research on the actual people. " I do real patient care on real people. I don't know why they all itch and freely admit that. I do know, however, what sort of things work and what things don't. There is more and more known science regarding the chemical changes that go on in the skin that make things itch and ooze. We don't have all the answers yet but it is becoming much clearer and that is using the traditional scientific method to study it. A dollar spent chasing known things such as fibers stuck to scabs and normal body mites is a dollar not spent on the unknown part of it. Sorry, that's the way I feel. I hope you feel better soon.
Dr Meffert 4th email: addendum
Watched your video. Those are thin textile fibers swaying with ambient air currents (includes your breathing). The melt test confirms that they are synthetic fibers, probably polyester. Tease out a thread from a polyester shirt or jacket and you will see that they melt with the same black lump on the end. You get the same thing on a bigger scale if you set fire to a bigger piece of plastic (like a plastic toothpick).
Sorry. Just not that mysterious and nothing nanotech about it. I won't bug you again about it though and I really do hope you get some relief.
Jan's second letter:
Dear Dr. Meffert,
Thank you for your response, I do appreciate that you took the time to read my paper.
The statements about silicon and silicone in my letter were a result of independent lab tests done at four separate labs including Lambda Labs, and MIT/Woodshole labs. These two labs in particular concluded that the material was nanotechnology as reported to Dr Hildegarde Staninger.
The samples went to the labs as unknowns and no hint of what the samples were was given to any of the labs. Other findings included polyethylene fibers. You are correct about the melting since these self-replicating polymer fibers are used as a nuclear envelope for pathogenic materials of both a biological and chemical nature. I can tell you that this research has been done and confirmed by reliable and unbiased sources. Needless to say, these labs were able to see the materials at a particle level and the larger formations are combined nanoparticles which puts them at a macro level.
Here is a paper by one of the researchers.
There is a radio program that was done in conjunction with showing this paper which fill in the gaps.
The radio program is available at this web address:
I am currently working with scientists at a university who are all ready finding convincing evidence with their Fournier and Raman testing of Morgellon's samples.
I realize that this is a bizarre and unnatural disease but I do not have demodex mites. In my case I am not even bothered by itching.
The claw formation is spot-on for nanotechnology as seen in this paper. http://www.nanotechdisease.com/PDF/00_AM_2[1].pdf.
The communications array in my paper is also part of this company's research and is shown within. I can only hope that the medical community will be open to something entirely novel and take a second look.
Stating this disease as Nanotechnology was not something chosen out of thin air. It was stated by two reputable labs without any coaxing. I only hope that the medical community can realize with this new emergent and potentially dangerous technology there problems are possible.
Many young children have this disease. It is not much of a future for them to look forward to. When children are only two or three years old and suffering they are not able to comprehend why no one will help them and it is heartbreaking. Once again, thank you for taking the time to reply to me. I do hope this disease can be properly diagnosed soon.
Thank you,
Jan Smith
Dr Jeffrey Meffert's 5th email...
There's a problem here. You showed me a picture of a demodex mite. I told you what that picture is and you say it's not. You say you don't have demodex when, in fact, all adults do in their noses and upper cheeks (where you got this specimen). I'm not saying it's the whole problem and certainly doesn't explain everything you have going on but if you won't even accept this one little point, it really doesn't matter what I say about anything else, does it?
Jan's Third and final letter...
Dear Dr Meffert,
I am sorry that my last email regarding the demodex mites upset you. I have no doubt that you are a fine Doctor. My information is not based on my trying to prove I know more than professional medical people. The information I stated was from Dr Rahim Karjoo who did the pathology and took the photo of the claw-like skin sample. I have included his resume at the bottom of the page. I am only taking his word as to what he saw since he had the original tissue sample and not just a photo. I am enclosing some other photos of what the crust-like residue on my face looks like and another photo of the crystalline array complete with the remainder of the same type of projection coming out of the center of the material. I will be happy to discuss the demodex mite theory with Dr Karjoo to see if it is something he didn't consider.
I like to think of myself as open-minded and would never discount anything I am told due to a preconceived opinion. I am living in a nightmare of a life based on preconceived opinions and I would never repeat that mistake. I do appreciate that you have been kind enough to take the time to respond . ...
Thank you,
Jan Smith

Dr Jeffrey Meffert's Final Reply....
Your email did not upset me. I'm quite used to it. It's frustrating that I get all these pleas to have an open mind (I'm married to an acupuncturist...I have an open mind) but if I try to unmuddy the very muddy waters with some hard facts about what is making "morgonites" miserable, it gets shot down. I've gone through this with Wymore, Letao, and any number of suffering individuals such as yourself. It seems that for those of us who wish to help while keeping a foot firmly planted in verifiable science, that we are supposed to accept part and parcel of everything we are told and not offer any dissenting opinions (or facts).
One of the other pictures you sent shows what one gets when you scrape a flake off one's nose with demodex stuck to it although the more impressive manuver is to do the drop of superglue as I said and examine the underside. If you look quickly, they will still be alive. Do it first thing in the morning before you wash your face. As it is their tails which will be stuck to the glue, you should be able to find plenty of claws. I'm sure Dr. Karjoo is a nice guy but I won't be sending him any path specimens. On the other hand, to him demodex look like this:
More on Maffert's 'demodex mite' explanation...
Hi Jeff,
There is a vague similarity to the demodex mites pushed by Dr. Maffert but the placement of the "claws" on that piece of material was NOT bilateral symmetry as are the legs of an actual demodex mite.
The crusts I have are transparent between the nano formations . The demodex mite also has two distinct joints on the legs before the claw formation. My sample was sent to Dr Staninger and Dr Karjoo...which took 3 weeks by mail to get to them. When I mailed the sample from the east coast, NONE of these 'claw' or other formations had developed or were visible. My sample had only protrusions like this...
Nano Array note comparison to tissue in preceding photo.
All of development happened IN TRANSIT. I do not believe that the mites can live out the human body in cool temperatures. This particular piece of tissue was fairly large and the remainder of the piece is shown in the other photos on this page http://www.rense.com/ general74/morg6-5.htm The claws were just one of many forms on this piece of tissue.
If I had mites, I would imagine the itching would be unbearable. I had no itching. The demodex mites live in the hair follicles.
Believe me, the hairs that I am pulling out of my body are mutated and have been proven to have silicon and polymers (and goo) taking up all of the space in the hair follicle itself. I don't think a demodex mite would fare very well in my seeping goo-filled hair follicles since their diet consists of dead skin cells.
The inset photo of the claw on the nanotechnology paper had a distinguishing mark of a dark spot above the claw formation. Both of my specimens had the matching dark spot. The dark spot is explained in the Advanced Technology paper as an agglomeration of silicon crystals which forms the claw-like structure. In that small inset photo I used with my photos you will notice this dark spot marked with Si marking that spot. I don't believe that the legs of a mite would have such a dark spot.
With all of the "goo" I have in my pores, it would make a poor place for mites to live. All I can say is that both Dr. Staninger and Dr. Karjoo did the pathology in his lab with his specialty microscope that immerses the sample in oil for a 3D image. After 40 YEARS of pathology, I should think Karjoo knows a mite when he sees one.
Once again Dr Meffert is allowing his prior knowledge to influence what he sees by making an assumption. That was my entire argument with him.. He is arrogantly making his determinations without ever allowing himself to study the actual structures and materials or do any research. He is the old dog who doesn't want to learn a new trick. His is apparently not able to get past his preconceived notions since if he did that he would find that he has made mistakes.
Here are a couple of photos. One is a better view of the full mite and the other is a photo of three mites and a normal hair coming out of a hair follicle. As you can see the hair looks normal and there is no presence of any "goo". If Meffert had only done actual research he would have known that mites could not survive in a follicle filled with goo. He didn't even know what the magnification was on the photo he saw. I believe his mites are a different size all together.
I thinks that covers the possibility of demodex mites being a possibility.
Normal demodex mite. The legs are segmented.
3 Demodex mites and normal hair in a follicle.
Hair is not mutated and there is no telltale goo.
SI (silicon) indicates an agglomeration of silicon crystals...
The sample I mailed...and the claws that grew during the transit time. Red arrows point to dark spots...silicon agglomerations....
Here are two of my hairs below. Note the follicle is enlarged and is filled with 'goo'. The goo have clearly overflowed from the follicle base and has moved on upwards up and out of the skin and covered the entire hair shaft itself. There is no room for mites in the hair follicle. It's not a good place for a demodex mite to try to get dead skin cells to eat either...
