Itch mites – some progress

In the past five weeks I tested six different methods of getting rid of the itch mites.

Some success, but not perfect yet.

Here are my findings:

  1. Itch mites' exosceleton, the rough outside that allows them to create the wounds on you is sensitive to a certain sugar: D-Mannose. It even kills many of the mites, but not all. It depends on the kind of contact with the dissolved sugar.

    I have found that if you dissolve the D-Mannose in water, and spray it or dub it on the skin, contact with an itch mite kills the mite. Fast. A few seconds.

    I have been also testing the D-Mannose internally: using it dissolved in water, tea, juice. The quantity that is definitely effective is about 2-3 tablespoons a day. It doesn't kill the mites, but it removes their hard shell. They will die without the protection.

  2. Diligence in washing the floors and clothes in Borax is very important: itch mites can survive off the body indefinitely. It's best to change your sheet daily, and soak it in Borax water, dry it, and use it again. Same with towels. How much Borax? I use muscle test... it's always a little more than I felt. Regular detergent doesn't kill the mites.

    I am using bulksupplements.com for D-Mannose, and use the 20 mules brand of Borax that you can find in your grocery store.

Yesterday a student who purchased this program sent me an email saying:

One question that I never asked you was what kind of mite infestation do I have on me and in my house when you muscle tested to see if I had a mite infestation. Can you please let me know?

After I found out that I did have mites, I was so grossed out that I went on the internet and started doing my own research also. From everything that I read it seems that Food Grade Diatomacous Earth, Coconut Oil and Tree Tee Oil were giving people good results. I mixed coconut oil and tree tee oil and rubbed it over this on my left wrist where the it's been itching a lot but the mites / itching didn't stop. I only got some brief relief. I rubbed DE all over my body and hair and then rubbed coconut oil before heading to bed. That seemed to stop the itching but then it was back again the next day. I also rubbed DE all over my dog too.
