Q4: * how to starve Malassezia *
Starving Malassezia with Medication
As far as i know The Azole family of Drugs
such as Fluconazole, Itraconazol, Miconazole etc,
work by preventing the synthesis of Ergosterol
produced by Yeasts/Fungi/Malassezia
as an essential component of their cell membranes.
Disrupting production causes holes in the membranes
and leakage of the cell contents – thus killing them.
The Downside of these Medications is:
* Long Term Treatments under Medical Supervision
due to possible Liver Toxicity
* Serious and Potentially Fatal Side effects (as above)
* Interference with Other Medications
* Temporary Result due to High Malassezia Recurrence
(And a lot more – too much to mention here)
Q: I read on your website that azole family is good for yeast infection?
* Good God – No!… I never said or meant ‘Good’
I worded it very carefully to only describe how they are reputed to work.
In my Personal Experience
–as stated in Several Relevant Entries in Both Blogs-
i have found them totally ineffective whether used as Shampoo
External Topical Cream or Oral Prescription Medication.
Furthermore, the Topical ones seem to exacerbate the problem
due to emollients and other ingredients that attract Malassezia back.
Starving Malassezia through Diet
Malassezia utilises several types of Nutrients such as
Sugars, Minerals, Amino Acids, Lipids etc.
Practically Every Piece of Food contains a Combination
of Some or All of them in Varying Quantities.
Therefore Attempting to Starve Malassezia through Diet
would be almost Impossible.
But even if it Was possible it would be so Detrimental to the Body
and with Dire Consequences far Outweighing
the affliction and inconvenience caused by Malassezia itself
by further weakening and damaging the already poor Immunity
that allowed its growth..in the first place.
The Weaker the Body Defence
the Greater the Malassezia Stronghold.
Attempting to Starve Malassezia through Diet
by Depriving the Body of So Many Essential
Life Building and Life Supporting Nutrients
would be the equivalent
to Being in the Middle of the Ocean
Surrounded by Sharks
While Shooting Holes into One’s Own Boat!
The Less for You
The More for Me … and my Sisters!
I believe that the Opposite would be the Best way to go about
i.e. to Build and Boost the Immune System
with the Most Nutritious Foods available and Tolerated.
* Long Term Antibiotics
* Lberal use of Medications and X-Rays,
* Our Culinary Pleasures or Neglect, and
* Poor – Nutrient Deprived Diets.
often do Irreparable harm to the Body.
A Lot more damage than Natural Aging
usually attributed to and blamed on, does.
I have been hammering this message repeatedly
because i have experienced and suffered greatly
through the entire bad side of it myself
and trying to pick up the pieces ever since
fighting hard along the way and never giving up easily
when it comes to trying anything that can be of Benefit
and Produce a Better Result generally for my Body
regardless of any direct impact or not on Malassezia.
