   PART 5   

        * Malassezia Green and the Lung Experiment *


In order for the Experiment to Produce Reliable Results

I had to think carefully and put in place some safety Rules:


1- The Containers used must be Clean – Never used before

 2- The Sample Sputum must come from the Lungs – Not just plain saliva

 3- Must be Collected as far as possible from Previous meal

    to Avoid any Food Colouration no matter how remote the possibility

 4-  Must Not contain Blood

 5- Must remain Undisturbed and Uncontaminated.


So I asked my Man to buy me a New Set of Sealed Plastic Party Cups

white or clear and waited until All Rules could be Implemented.


    The First Part of the Experiment:

I Half-filled a cup with plain Tap water from the Bathroom

and set it in a place it would remain undisturbed – Uncovered

in order to Rule out humidity attracting airborne Malassezia

into the cup and thus changing the colour of the water.


At the end of Three Days the water looked still Clean and Clear

The Second Part of the Experiment:

* I Discarded the Clear water and used a New Clean cup for the Second Part.

* I Half filled it with Clean Tap water.

* I Collected a number of Sputum Blobs adhering closely to the rules.


Some looked Light Yellowish Brown and some Light Brown

I Covered the container and let it stand for Three Days undisturbed.

      Nothing happened!…

The water turned to a slightly Muddy Colour

and the Blobs remained their Original Brownish Colour

        and sunk in the bottom of the cup.


      Failed Sputum – Remained Brownish

( I did not think to take a photo so i Photo-shopped this one

to resemble the original and its colour * as close as possible)

      Malassezia and Lung Experiment 1

I judged Experiment Void – so i emptied the cup and discarded it.

Waited a few days and repeated as above.


On the Second day the Contents turned to a Light Greenish hue

and by the Third day, Both Water and Sputum turned Lime Green!…

Malassezia and Lung Experiment 2


Malassezia and Lung Experiment 3

   My Husband volunteered to hold the cup high

        in order to take a photo from underneath

 and then added the contents of one Acidophilus capsule

                   and let it stand for an extra day.


There was No Change – and this may indicate that either 

1- * When Acidophilus was introduced, Malassezia was already dead


2- * Acidophilus was already dead and had no effect


3- * Acidophilus was already at work from Internal dosage.

    Must Note here

1) For External applications i buy an economy pack of 90 caps

    and some of them end up dried up half way through the end

    while the ones sealed in a Blister i only use for Internal areas

    because they Remain Fresh Throughout and Cost a lot More 

2) Before i started using Acidophilus both Internally and externally

    i had never had any Sputum or other Specimen turning Green.


I could think perhaps that the Green fluorescent colour may have to do

with the  recent months of ‘All Greens’ Diet but it is Always Rusty Orange

at a starting ‘Live’ stage as can be observed in many of my Entries.


Green Fluorescence

Is it Possible that is is already dead when observed under Wood’s light?

         Another good Question here is:

“What is Pityriasis Versicolour doing in my Lungs???”


As Luck had it, i always keep an emergency empty Vitamin Container

with a wide mouth on the side of the Bathtub, because usually

when i have a Bath my Lungs Relax and are prone to expectorating

               making it a good opportunity for clearance

                 but inconvenient to getting out in a hurry…


So, a couple of days after i was done with the Sputum Experiment

i emptied the Bathtub before i had got up and found i was too weak

to lift my body. I tried all the tricks i have devised but none worked

so i panicked so much that i did not even think to call my man for help.


I made it out eventually shaking like jellyfish out of the water

and been too concerned on how to avoid such a repeat i forgot 

to Check and Empty the Sputum Container if had been Used.

Forgetting  turned out to be a good thing because by Next Morning

        it too had turned Green!…

     So i took a couple of photos

Malassezia and Lung Experiment 4-2

Then i agitated the cup and Both Acidophilus as well as Sputum

spread and blended with the water and i took another photo of the mix

Malassezia and Lung Experiment 4-3

Curiosity took the better of me so a few more days later

i deliberately left another Bath batch for a day of Brewing, lol!

                 Day One of a mini Sputum Collection :  

   2 small Brownish Blobs in Clear tap water.

Next Day, Both Sputum and Water had turned Bright Lime Green!…

    * It Must be noted here that the colour of each sample presented

         may vary due to each Reader’s Computer / iPad / iPhone

                             Colour Settings, Pixels etc.


I can judge the closeness only by what i see on my own screen

and beside the original photo i usually include a lighter or darker version

to illustrate the colour closer to the specimen and /or for better viewing.

                                      Dec 2014

1- 2- 3 * One Point not taken into account at the time of Entry

              regarding the Sputum Colour Remaining Green

              instead of turning Gray after Acidophilus was introduced    

              was that the Thickness of the Sputum Mucous

              prevented fast interaction between Acidophilus

              and Malassezia – also in its own Sticky Biofilm.               


  Below if the findings are Correct there are Three points of Interest:

  Two Negative Ones affecting All

 And a Somewhat Positive for the A-TB Patients

   Malassezia and Antibiotics

I am not sure whether it is true or to what degree, that

  “Discontinuation of antibiotics can be helpful”

  in regards to Malassezia once the devil has taken over

other than not weakening and doing further harm to immunity

                    as generally antibiotics do!                                                        

   The Three Points of Interest as i see them: 

1) The Negative Role of Oral Antibiotics (affecting anyone) 

2) Recurrence and Ubiquitous Nature of the offender (also affecting all) 

3) Malassezia Stimulating the Immune System

    proving Beneficial in Slowing or Preventing a variety of other Diseases

    so that it is currently researched as possible Preventive agent or even Cure 

   … in some Millenniums to come…

This Third part i see of Interest to A-TB patients

  because Malassezia activates A-TB fighting T-Cells 

     which are Low in people with A-TB

and thus Possibly slowing or preventing Lung damage progression 


I suppose it would depend on the Severity of Symptoms to be Endured

to make the Exchange of Malassezia’ s Potential …‘Gifts’ worthwhile…


 For me it is a matter of Better Die Sooner of a Serious Illness

rather than Live Longer like a Combatant Soldier on the Front Line

practically every single minute of day or night, going through

Constant Battle with a highly opportunistic, adaptable devil 

causing Torturous hell of Casualties in endless Repetitive Rounds…


Of course, while still Alive and Fighting on All fronts

there is No Choice and Only One way, and this is

“How to make Life Easier and Reduce Pain and Discomfort”


One of the Keywords in queue i will be addressing soon

Fits nicely with that Aim – which is a Daily One for Mine.

It will take Some Time and much Thinking to Present it All

In One Concise Entry while addressing the Issues as widely

as Necessary to Help and Benefit as Many People Possible
