June's Story

JuneI was diagnosed with Morphea which appeared on my torso. As I was my GP’s first scleroderma patient he sent me to Brisbane to a specialist who also had no answers, except cortisone cream.
When I returned home I went to see my old boss, a chiropractor, who said it had to be coming from the central nervous system. This lovely man worked on me twice a week for some time to repair the adrenal and thymus glands to stimulate and restore nerves.
Prior to the onset of Morphea I had undergone years of stress, which I think played a part in the onset of the disease.
My boss sent me to Brisbane to a specialist in allergies who works mainly with environmental problems. He checked out allergies and the buildup of chemicals in my body.
As a consequence of my trip to this specialist, I got rid of all the chemical cleaners etc., in my house and now use vinegar and bi-carb soda as cleaning agents.
I applied wheat germ oil to my Morphea spots to soften them and after about a month of treatment I could see a change. Slowly, bit by bit, they all disappeared, but it took over twelve months.
I have been free of any symptoms for two years now but still continue to live in a chemical free environment as much as is possible.
