PART 6/2

 

                             So the next day…..

 

I had my Bath early morning, using H& S Pyrithione shampoo

both for the Head / Hair as well as the Bod

as described in my Daily maintenance routine Entries,

in the * Malassezia Blog *  making absolutely sure

Not to touch any Seawater and especially No Acidophilus…

 

Had Breakfast as usual about an hour after the Bath

i turned on the Laptop and the Digital Microscope

and started observing the same fingers as the day before. 

   Previous day’s dull Green was not present.

 

All fingers totally clear and … apparently Only! … Clean!…

 

   I tested and photographed a few of them to confirm

   consistency of appearance, behaviour, and pattern

 

 And then the games began!… 

 

<—  Now you See it on the Left ~ Now you Don’t on the Right —> 

Malassezia Fungus on Fingers 1 MD

  Playing ‘Peek -a- Boo’ with the Microscope Light… on my fingers

     Liquid droplets flickering and ever changing shape and size.

                This time No Acidophilus, No dull Green!

                                And … It is Alive!!!

 

                         As soon as the light flashes on them

                       they dive under the skin and disappear

                      waiting until  light is withdrawn

                    then come up to the surface again…

I believe though Acidophilus does not have any effect

                         on well protected  dormant ‘eyelet’ clones

                  – until gel sack dries out and are directly exposed to it

                                     Convinced and Satisfied

        with what i had been observing repeatedly now and in the past 

    and with my Interpretation of it as ‘Liquid stage Malassezia’

                                   i can safely consider it

               as Another Confirmation – with a New Element added 

                          of the C shaped worm-like shape

                     with evil ‘Eye’ beads – of Future ‘Sisters’ in it…

   PART 5 /1

 

The Day after the Digital Microscope was re-installed in my laptop

i thought it would be a good idea to check my fingers and see

how things with Malassezia were going and whether i could see

the same things as back then when i had trouble accepting what it was

and if my observations and interpretations of its liquid state

were as constant and correct.

 

Below is the first Photo i took of one finger

– the rest three or four of them looked pretty similar. 

  Malassezia after Treatment MD

   ( Dead after Acidophilus???… )                                                                     

  The First thing i noticed

  was the Dull Green Colour as if tinged with a touch of Gray.

 

The Second thing i noticed was that the View was Static!

Nothing was moving, nor Shining or Playing ‘Peek -a- Boo’

with the Digital Microscope Lights hiding then re-appearing etc

   as i had observe some time back no matter how long i kept

     the DM on, withdrew it and tried again and again…

 

 I had an hour’s Bath at 5.30’ am and it was now Noon.

       I had already applied a couple of Acidophilus treatments 

      in some areas due to movement i felt and some for prevention

 but had not directly treated my hands or fingers

  so i could not explain what exactly was the situation.

 

    This was now the Second time catching Malassezia

looking Green – but Not Fluorescent like below

Malassezia Fluorescent Green 2Malassezia Fluorescent Green

                                          as in the Entry

  “Malassezia ~ Acidophilus ~ and Fluorescent Green (PT1)

 

 Could the Grayish tinge be a Confirmation

that Orange/Yellow or Green (fluorescent) turned Gray  when dead?

 

                      Being Static seems to prove this idea 

                 but i never like to jump to quick conclusions

             preferring to put things under persistent scrutinising

            repeated testing and observing within a length of time

                    before i can feel reasonably comfortable

 accepting theories and possibilities as closer to facts.  

 

     And if dead … then what had killed it?

 

               Was it because my hand was handling 

                  and applying the Acidophilus Mix?..

 

  1- Original photo – 2 and 3 in two different hues to illustrate clearly

 the consistency of the dull Green look

Malassezia after Treatment 3 MD

 

To test the Theory of Acidophilus possibly being a slow Killer

but Killer nevertheless, instead of just a protector or healer

     i decided to take a different action and check results.

 

       So the next day…..

Blobby Ear samples left deliberately on BM* slides exactly as they were

in order to be observed in a few days again for any possible changes.

 

Below Blob One – First Day

As detailed in Entry

Malassezia~Acidophilus and the Creamy Yellow Blobs(PT2)

Malassezia Blob with Hyphae- Microscope MD 1

Long Filament like lines (hyphae?)

 

A week and a half later, part of the blob/gel like ‘Body’

  had partially dried and thinned out

  to separate droplet like particles

Malassezia  Revealed Hyphae MD

while some disintegrated leaving behind

     what initially had looked like  ‘Filament / Hyphae’ lines, 

      that Actually Were Hyphae!

 

   One Alive and Blood Impregnated

previously obscured by the gel

and the Other Gray and Disintegrating

 

They were very long and i had to scroll down the slide

taking several shots to cover their entire length.

Again i found it very hard to align the iPad camera

 with the Top viewer Eye of the BM*

mainly a ‘click – hit and miss’ pot luck effort

but i got a few good shots

 

Here is what the Second View Revealed 

  The Red ‘Live’ One

PART 3

 

As i am typing right now ears have been clear for several days

and apart form a last ‘Lucky dip’ i had no other ‘harvest’ material.

The last one though provides some additional details.

No Wormy looking like Blobs, just shapeless Blobs as shown below

viewed under re-installed Digital  Microscope.

 

Malassezia  Fatty Ear Blob1 MD

 

Initially it looked like ‘nothing much to see’ 

but looking closer … one can observe

an elongated shape like a transparent worm

                   that has swallowed …

     Transparent Bubbles

      with Black … ‘Beads’ in their Center!

 

Malassezia  Spores 1 MD

 

There are more ‘Beads’ scattered around

 

Malassezia  Spores 2 MD

 

Looked under Biological Microscope the ‘Beads’ look more

like… Evil Eyelets Filled with Round thready (hyphenated ?) circles! 

Malassezia  Spore Eyelets 1 MD

 

And then it Struck me!

 

They are – – – Must Be! – – – the Evil Spores?

              that i have mentioned coming out of Lesions 

                         for approximately Four weeks

        when  Hyphenated Shards have managed to successfully

                   dig into the skin and start reproducing!…

and start reproducing!…

 

  Dare i see it as Another Confirmation??

                       Of perhaps…. Mother – Daughter Collaretts???

Malassezia and Atypical TB – Lungs – QA

    *

    *READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*

                                *

     Malassezia Q & A s

     *

* Malassezia and Atypical TB – Lungs *
                                    
     Malassezia and Atypical TB
 
Q1 * is atypical and anaeraboes the same *

 

A:  As i  understand the word ‘Atypical’ can be medically addressing

      a number of diseases but i am guessing this question comes from

      an Atypical (TB) researching person since some people who read my Blogs

      are Atypical TB interested ones, therefore i am taking a short brake

      from my stream work to address this Question.

 

Atypical TB -or more specifically- ‘Mac Avium’ Can Be an Anaerobe

according to my earlier Research on medical sites

and a lengthy discussion with one of my early Lung Specialists

who said Atypical Tb should have been named ‘Environmental TB’

– and i couldn’!t agree more!- due to being amply in the environment

 in the air, in waters, on our pets, on our walls, our curtains, carpets etc./     

but the ‘Anaerobic Malassezia’ phase  referred to in this Blog

                   Is Not the same as Atypical TB

 

I will Clarify what i know from Own Experience:

 

Malassezia is a Natural Body Flora that lives on our Bodies quietly

                       and unnoticed until things go wrong

                   and cause to upset the Natural balance

by such as Illness, Medications, Low Immunity etc.

      

A person with Atypical TB does not necessarily 

suffer exacerbated Malassezia symptoms 

–  but given an already low immune system fighting TB 

as well as being burdened with the Long term Antibiotic treatments

–and frequent X-rays– that do not only kill the Pathogens

but also  the Friendly Protective Flora, especially in the Intestines

one is more vulnerable and susceptible to a takeover by Malassezia.

     

If the Atypical TB person is on Antibiotics and X-rays regime

without any signs of Malassezia it would be wise to keep up

a good supplementation of B Complex – Vitamin C  

 and Especially

Acidophilus- Bifido- Bacteria in substantial dosages.

   

 If  already exhibiting signs of Malassezia, then some as above

 would still be helpful as well some natural ways to control it

as presented from my own diaries shared in these pages.

      

                Soon i am going to present a report                         

         – and if lucky backing photos of Malassezia in the Lungs!

 

                     This is a quick response to this question,

           but if any additional details surface from my busy mind

            i will address the subject again in upcoming entries

Malassezia~Acidophilus and the Creamy Yellow Blobs *

 

   PART 2

 

The day after the Lucky discovery of the

Acidophilus and the Fluorescent Green” 

Ears still treated with the Friendly –to humans– Bacteria

i used a Cotton tip to clean them and re-apply fresh dosage.

And here comes Surprise number 2!

 

After more than two years, if i recall correctly,

of never having collected anything ‘visible to the naked eye’

from the inside area of the ears, here come

not just one but two shapes of an old Familiar

‘worm looking like creature’ of a long time back, 

just like the one below posted in the PHOTOS Section

on * Malassezia Blog *  

 

   Malassezia Fatty Blob1 MB

 

Both of the New ones were the exact shape like the old one above.

 

My Phone camera could not ‘see them’ though, so i could not take a photo.

Not deterred by the set back and determined to ‘catch them’ while i could

i immediately unpacked Both Microscopes and tried the Digital one first

as it is the one that could take a magnified photo of the Cotton Bud

   without disturbing the Blobs –  just like the above .

 

Unfortunately i stumbled on a second setback:

My Laptop would not recognise the Digital M even though it was installed.

I had no idea where to find the CD to re-install it and no patience

to wait till dark when my man –keeper of Software CD’s– came home

so i proceeded to plan B, i.e try viewing under the Biological Microscope!

 

One problem with that was that it cannot ‘see’ through the cotton Bud 

so i had to scrape the Blobs as carefully as possible and transfer them

onto the slide… and in my excitement did not think to scrape only one…

so both Blobs were a bit squeezed and lost their characteristic shape

– the reader will have to take my word that both blobs

            looked like twins of the above old photo

but despite this additional setback there were a couple more revelations!

 

Well after the Transfer it just Finally dawned on my consciousness

a bit too late to avoid the ‘disfigurement’ of the Blobs… 

that for the past full year i had no reason to rely any more

on my poor quality phone camera

since my man had bought me for my Birthday

a beautiful Apple iPad with an Excellent camera!

 

So i tried it immediately to check how well it could ‘see’ them

directly on the slide – but not through the BM*

 

Here is how they ended up looking on the slide

after been gently scraped off the Cotton Tip

 

Malassezia Blobs

   They Both have retained a slight semblance

of their initial elongated wormy shape 

 

Then i had a great deal of trouble aligning

and focusing the i Pad Camera Eye

being on the top left edge of its rectangle shape-

with the Cylindrical Single Top Eye of the Bio- Microscope

but the end result after several ‘hit and miss’ tries

     was much better than any other photos i have presented before.

 

Below we can see what the Blobs looked under the Bio–Microscope. 

  Malassezia Blob under Microscope MD

 

The Elongated shape of this Blob is undeniable here

as well as its Yellow Creamy Colour and consistency.

 

          And partly of the other Blob below 

Malassezia Blob under Microscope 2 MD

 

These two Blobs were collected 20 minutes after having applied

Acidophilus treatment and it was interesting that viewed with naked eye

and photographed with camera they look like Creamy wormy Blobs

but viewed under the Bio-Microscope they somewhat retain some 

of the above characteristics and look more like the hyphae type of shards                                    

  as the older photos shown below  

  Original Photos  – taken long time Back

     Malassezia developing Hyphae2MB

                 and the two New ones together

EarBlob under BM                              

        but without any hyphae

 perhaps caught at an earlier stage either not mature enough or dead.

 

Looking more closely though there are some distinctly visible

             Long Filament like lines (hyphae?)

Malassezia Blob with Hyphae- Microscope MD 1

 … just about ready to separate from the blobby gel 

   and spring outwards seeking Blood?                                                                      

 (Easy to see a resemblance of a Dr Who extraterrestrial style 

                                     of ‘Alien life’

   and a possible alignment  with what is called …Morgellons?                              

                           But Morgellons it is Not!… )

                        

 

A Pre Solidified Shard with at least two visible Hyphae:

One or possibly two already impregnated with Blood

which – if proves right –  adds another significant detail

to my theory during previous observations,

 that it digs in -after it solidifies- to get blood

in that perhaps it can also do so both before as well as after.

 

For this purpose i have deliberately left the samples on the slide

     in order to go back and check if there is any development

                        during the next few days.

 

 The million dollar question is:

             “Would they be able to develop further

          after been treated with Acidophilus Bacteria?”

  I have a photo, i will publish in a following Part of this topic 

  which casts doubt that it will be able to do so

       unless it had already done so prior to Acidophilus

                   – as might be indicated above.
