*Malassezia – Research and Attitude *
Attitude can be a Tremendous Helper or a Stumbling Block of Impediment.
In understanding and dealing correctly with the Malassezia problem
I am very much like any average, person, wanting something to happen
Right Now and with the Minimal Expenditure of Energy,
Effort or Inconvenience, as any other…
and these Keywords below could very well have been mine
–if they had not already been in deed –as this was my Initial attitude
that lasted for a long unproductive time not only inhibited progress
and lead to it through immense Pain and Extremely High Financial Cost.
‘quickest cure for Malassezia’
‘how do i get rid of malassezia’
‘what will kill malasezzia fungus’
And so many other alike
So i often wonder about different types of personalities
and what attitudes can be Helpful or Inhibiting, for each Reader.
I do not mean to preach on any one – i mean to draw attention
to the Right attitude than can lead faster to better understanding
and of dealing more effectively with such a persistent problem
Attitude 1 – Quick Fix
As i have described my own self above, is looking for a One Off
‘Quick Pill’ – No fuss, No mess, No effort, No inconvenience
that fixes the problem permanently and go back to living happily ever after.
This means Scanning through the Entries quickly Missing or Dismissing
a lot of Crucial Info, grubbing one piece or another of mentioned treatment
–isolated from the entirety or part of treatment– and going away
adapting it further still to one’s own convenience and expecting it
to be the one that will work!…
This of course is not the right attitude and not productive for achieving results.
Malassezia goes on, adapting and bypassing every little pebble or rock
of impediment placed in front of it and any person soon finds out in frustration
that there was more on those pages that may have been overlooked
and return to read again but still holding on to the same attitude
of a ‘Quick – No trouble – Permanent Fix.’
Attitude 2 – Mix and Match
Preferring to take control of the choices presented,
with more zeal and attention to detail but equally eager
for a ‘Quick- not too much mess- Fix’ and as well missing
or dismissing crucial helpful Information,
believing that combining, adapting or omitting things
a result can be achieved faster.
More Normal attitude but still not quite what is required
for dealing with Malassezia.
Just a couple of small examples:
1- Where i refer to Seawater many Readers interpret
or elect substituting with Salt + Tap Water
2- Where i refer to Neutrogena clearing Malassezia caused Dead Skin
many Readers have interpreted and tried it as a Cure for Malassezia
3- The Right Attitude:
Patient ‘Researcher wise Owl’ Style
Slow, thorough and methodical, gathering information carefully
considering the depth of the meaning and its implications
without resistance or rejection of any notion presented
and willing to test the Essential Requirements that can confirm
Producing as Close to the Desired Results as can be Possible
with a Problem as Tough, Highly Persistent, Invasive and Pervasive
Internally and Externally on the whole Body
as well as Highly Evasive to the eyes of Observer
and Resistant to Treatments, as Malassezia is …
I sincerely hope that there are –for their own benefit– some Lucky Readers
that already possess by Nature the Right Attitude
for meeting the challenge of this Tough and Highly Persistent Problem
which took me near Three Full Years to develop
dealing with inherit resistance which proved more Troublesome
and way less Helpful than what i was striving for
and causing me to miss Crucial Understanding
that was right in-Front of my Eyes
When we bought our Digital Microscope
and had our first glimpse of my fingertips
while my man spontaneously exclaimed
‘Gees! …this Looks like FUNGUS!’
i was myself in utter disbelief and Impenetrable Resistant Denial,
‘ No way i could possibly have such horror on my skin … and moving!…’
so i promptly dismissed the idea until a lot later when we finally bought
the Biological Microscope and the reality of the ‘dismissed horror’ started
to become more clear – sending me back to the Digital to observe anew
and without resistance this time.
It was then that i could see it in its liquid stage and its peculiar behaviour
and response to the heat and light emanated from the D /Microscope.
The same was observed on my man’s fingers.
The more solid form and the hyphae, as well as the abundant
spherical shapes surrounding them
came with the viewing of the Biological Microscope
of samples collected from different areas,
some already viewed under the DM.
It is only when all resistance was finally pulled back
that i started to understand better and could move forward
but still with the same fixed mentality of having to kill it
by any means – and resistance accepting that even if i did
it might still make No difference
and It could/would continue to live and reproduce
on and inside my body…
When this fact was accepted i could finally turn my attention
on how to start protecting rather than keep harming my Body
by endlessly chasing a killer solution for Malassezia
and find Healthier ways
to Relieve the Symptoms
and Control Malassezia Presence and Activity
as much as possible and minimise Pain and Inconvenience
not to mention the emotional Roller-coaster
from high ignorant hope to utter despair of factual truth …
Now, more often than not
when i Do something i Do it Knowing
when, how and what to expect
and being realistic as to how much can be achieved or for how long.
Now i can safely say i am about 95% in control throughout the day
and only partially vulnerable during the night when in deep sleep
still enjoying maximum protection by my usual daily helpers
applied just before bed time and often visiting the bathroom at night.
I have now unpacked Both Microscopes at the ready
and have more photos with what appear to be new revelations
and some confirming previous theories or interpretations of photos,
stages or events, which will be presented in upcoming entries.
