*Malassezia ~ Its Double Role in Immunity*
I was Lucky to stumble upon these two photos below some time back
somewhere … but don’t remember where…
I think the content is very Impressive!

I absolutely agree, much prettier than i would have thought too!
I d like to give it a pat on its head or paws! Lol! 🙂
These Macrophage guys/gals … are our Immune System Defenders
against Bacteria, Fungi and Viruses
The reason i am posting these photos here is because
there is a Relationship between them and Malassezia
as will be seen below in a Document referring to Both.
This is only a small part of it
(Link for full article provided below)
(As i Understand it) It is all ”Research Studies” at this stage
with Potential Beneficial Applications in some Future
-if proved viable and eventually applicable to humans…
I have Highlighted in Red the points of attention
( Acting like Immunisation Injection? )
* Injection of Malassezia resulted in increased numbers
and bactericidal activity of intraperitoneal macrophages,
Stomach – Liver – Pancreas (part) – Duodenum (part) – Spleen
Small Intestines – Transverse Colon – Sigmoid Colon
Rectum (part) – Appendix
And In Women: Uterus – Fallopian Tubes – Ovaries
And here is how
Noting the very careful ‘Wording’
1– “possible reason” – 2– “suggested” 3– “may be” –
4– “understanding how“
indicating ‘Not absolute certainty or proof‘

PT 3-2 :‘the lipids associated with the cell wall of Malassezia’
may be referring to
PT 3-1 : ‘the production of azelaic acid by Malassezia’
PT 3-3:“unlikely to come into contact with professional phagocytic cells”
My Q: I wonder if this statement is derived from laboratory test observations
or an assumption of Malassezia being only a skin deep presence
that is not usually found in the organs and or places
where ‘intraperitoneal macrophages’ operate.
If it is the latter i could write a few pages – in fact i have already done!
regarding what appears to me to be debatable
-at least from my angle of personal experience
* If Ejaculate can go up from the Vagina – into the Uterus
so can highly mobile Malassezia – up to Falollpian tubes and Ovaries
* If Urine can run down from the Kidneys to the Bladder and Urethra
so can Malassezia travel upwards to the Kidneys (urine does not kill it!)
* If it can go from the Scalp to the Face – and into Eyes and Nasal cavities
it can also go down to the Oesophagus and into the Lungs – and so on …
I dont know about the Stomach, Liver or Spleen
-despite having periodically experienced indicative symptoms of possible
invasion, though assumption is that stomach juices would kill it
-and perhaps they do…or they Dont!…if the Digestives are sluggish etc-
but i will not venture to where i have not had adequte indications of proof.
PT 3-4 – Q: Now who is going to tell Malassezia that it is meant to be
a Commensal rather than a Pathogen
and stop causing havoc on our bodies?…
I often wonder what was it the Antibiotics and X-Rays
destroyed in my Body that caused Malassezia to transition
from Commensal to Pathogen,
(since the trouble began at the commencement of these Treatments)
Equally so, i wonder if there are any causes
other than those similar to mine
that trigger the same change in other people.
I have tried conducting a Poll to see if i could gather any indications
and proceed to targeted research and possible helpful implementation
of measures towards boosting the afflicted areas
but participation has been rather appalling
it seems no one wants to bother and all is the pity
because the Doctors do not appear to want to bother either
so we are left on our own… and the only ones with the incentive
to want to Bother – if only for our Own Benefit!…
Unfortunately it is hard to find out and alone there is only that much i can do.
(Perhaps Visiting the Site on iPhones, some iPads or through RSS Subscription
many people are not able to load and view each Page on its entirety
therefore missing some of the contents without being aware.)
There is a lot of Medical jargon hard to understand and nothing much
that Malassezia aflicted people can apply and benefit from in practical terms
but worth going through it as it contains valuable well-presented information.
I have read this document several times so far and intend to do so again
as each time something stands up and appears a bit clearer than previously.
