                             The Fermented Foods Trial

                           Has Regrettably come to an end.

Malassezia and KimChee MD.

                                    One thing i can say is

                               I Wish! … I Wish! … I Wish! ….

        1- There had been any Conclusive and Beyond Any Doubt

                  indication of inhibiting or affecting Malassezia

                                  but this is Not the case

.

  2- Or a Positive explanation for Suspected association

     with occurring Unpleasant Symptoms – but again

     this is Not the case while every indication is to the contrary

.

  3- Certainty that continuing consumption despite any signs

    would not be to the detriment of other vulnerable areas

.

  4- Certainty that whatever ‘live elements’ are attracted

    or released during the Fermentation process

    -even IF primarily harmless under normal conditions-

         Are Not or will Not – turn into Pathogens

        in an already immuno-compromised system

.

               Observations during the Trial

The Trial was conducted over a 3-1/2 month period

          and was ended abruptly due to an accident

     that appeared to have been caused as an indirect result

                      of ignored symptoms.

.

  I included my Husband in it as a second reference point

      and for comparison of results or possible symptoms.

   My Husband is not a fan of sour, vinegary, spicy foods

    so after a whole first week i kept the Solids for myself

     and he was quite happy to drink the Liquid part of it

                    before or during dinner.

.

       I started him one week after i had tested it myself

so that one of us would be safe should anything went wrong.

The First symptom he reported back within the first three days

was identical to mine, also occurring within my first three days.

          Painful Blood filled Bubbles inside the Mouth

.

        Malassezia - Fermented Foods1 MD

            His were not as huge as mine, as in photo above

                   but Big and very Painful nevertheless!

                    After a few Repeats of Blood Blisters

                         getting progressively smaller

         they were replaced by a succession of ever present

         yellowish white mouth Ulcer type, also Stinging ones

         making eating Uncomfortable and taking time to heal.

.

       I have a couple of theories regarding these symptoms

            some possibly positive and some negative

          but i have no proof or way of confirming either

      therefore there is no reason to expand on possibilities.

.

    Continuing on despite all and in order to give it time to settle

    and hope for more definite results, my Man developed

    mysterious pains and aches

    * needle shootings

    * hand swelling

    * arthritic and chest pains and so on-both while at work or home

      and started to worry he was heading for a heart attack

        and we considered doctor appointments and tests.

        After making sure the symptoms were not due

        to anything naughty he might had been consuming at work

        i decided to Reduce his dosage and frequency

        until eventually i took him Completely Off it.

        After a while all his symptoms faded away.

.

For myself i remained undecided and determined to continue

               despite a mixed bag of Symptoms

     while weighing the positives against the negatives.

.

                                 The Positives

There were a Few Noticeable Positives i was reluctant to part with:

 * I absolutely Loved the Taste

 * I experienced Tremendous Energy and Motivation,

    made me feel Alive like Life’s Electric Current

    was running through my veins.

 * My head was Clear and on Fire!..

    I could Think, Plan, and Remember things

 * Digestion and Peristaltic Motions markedly Improved

.

   One neither positive nor negative as such

   was Vivid active Dreams – Busy Mind throughout the night.

   No sleep disturbance – No wakefulness

   but i would have preferred it dead quiet, Lol!

.

                        The Negatives

* Suspicion -but no confirmation- of possibly affecting negatively

  Calcium Absorption – and Strength of already weak Bones.

* Needle/Shooting Pains-similar to ones descried by my man

* Gradual Build up of Kidney Pain and Pelvic area Inflammation

       I ignored the warning signs preferring to doubt

             while the inflammation kept Building

      until a light misjudgement caused a small accident

        that resulted in pain and partial immobility

   further aggravating Inflammation in the Pelvic area.

.

I still did not stop until the first minor accident was followed

by three consecutive ones that resulted in urgent purchase

of a Walking cane, followed by a Stroller and a Wheel chair

due to complete immobility and my man having to take

         two weeks off work to look after me.

.

I have recovered enough to walk the wheel chair around

             instead of being wheeled in it

   and stand up for a few minutes without holding on

        but to get back to this point of recovery

      i had to do what i have always been doing

            for the past three decades whenever anything 

       went wrong in any area – and had always worked:

        I stopped use and consumption of everything!

                 and I mean EVERYTHING

               Both Internally and Externally

        and Consumed ONLY Fruit Smoothies

        until there were signs of Improvement

              (usually three days to a week).

.

                  I did the same this time.

          Nothing but Fresh Fruit Smoothies

    No Acidophilus, No Kim Chee, No Seawater.

                  It took over Three Weeks

                  and i have still more to go

          – If there is no permanent damage…

I thought the Yeast would devour me Alive but it did Not!

    It always stops when there is Trauma in the Body

    and returns to activity, ironically …as a sign of Improvement

                 before I have even felt any…

Since then i have Resumed my Normal Recent Diet

with Preference to 2 Fruities and 1 Steamed -for now-

       as well as the daily Acidophilus maintenance

but have dropped the Kim Chee… regrettably for good…

.

             Here i must note that i had created

             my Own Benign Kim Chee Recipe

    with Clean Warm Water, Fresh Veggies and Fruit

                      without any use of

               – Commercial Yeasts or Chemical additives

   – Salt Free

   – Vitamin C and Acidophilus enriched

    – only a Brief 2-3 Day Fermentation time

              producing a mild Natural

Aromatic Flowery-Light Vinegary- Fragrance and Taste.

 Only Clear Bubbles were produced during the process

and remained absolutely FREE of Green or Gray Scam.

    I Used Sugarless Vitamin C as Preservative and Bacteria inhibitor

   to replace the high blood pressure and kidney irritating Salt

     and added the contents of an Acidophilus capsule

as a Malassezia fighter and for enhancing Friendly Flora.

                  Fermentation did the rest…  

Malassezia and Fermented Foods MD

               My Husband drunk the fermented juice

                      I only ate the Solid Pieces

It made No Difference to Malassezia Presence or Activity.  

 Irrespective, i would have continued eating it indefinitely

if it had not been for the adverse Inflammatory Kidney/Pelvic effect

and its resulting serious and undesirable consequences.

   It is easy to see how inflammation in the Kidneys

   can cause Lower and Middle Back Pain, Stiffness

   Pelvic inflammation and restricted painful mobility.

Malassezia – Vibration and Sound

           

    * READERS’ QUESTIONS & KEYWORDS *

                                     *                    

        * Malassezia – Vibration and Sound *

        Malassezia sound md

          A Number of Readers have mentioned in the past

           that they can ‘hear’ Malassezia under their skin.

            I never sought to clarify if they literally meant

                    that they can hear it as a sound

                knowing that it is often hard to express

           the different sensations with accurate words.

.

         Myself i have experienced it in several clear ways

           as i have already described in earlier entries

             but more as specific sensations, such as

                        * Crawling

                        * Sand Rolling

                        * Worm like Slithering

                        * Warm Liquid Sliding

                        * Flatter on the Eyelids

                        * Muscle Spasms under the Skin

                        * Strong Jerking Pulses or Cramping in the Legs

                          ( Restless Leg Syndrome, etc.)

        Each indicating a different stage of development or activity.

                               .

                      The closer and more relevant to ‘Sound’

                       yet not quite, are the vibratory ones, i.e

                            * Flatter on the Eyelid beds

                            * Muscle Spasms under the Skin

                            * Strong Jerking Pulses in the Legs

                    These three types have always displayed 

               a Characteristic Common Rhythmic Vibration.

  .

                                   The Muscle Spasms

               Are strong but less defined regarding the Rhythm

               and can be Easily Confused with Calcium/Mineral loss

               or need for supplementation, yet -to me- distinctly different

               because they are erratic with no specific pattern.

              Sometimes just one or two and no more,

              sometimes a few short quick ones and sometimes slow

              and way apart from each other, while the Malassezia ones

              have a distinctly regular pattern, irrespective of duration

              intensity or interval repetition and often occurring 

              simultaneously with another one or two nearby

              – as if the first one triggered an alert

             (*)or co-ordination with others …

               ((*) more about this at the end of this Entry)  

                 .

                                    The Leg Jerkins

            Can be from very Faint to Very Strong, like electric currents

         -depending on accumulation of Yeast in the Colon area-

              and -if one observes closely- very clearly defined.

.

                                 The Eyelid Flatters

                Shorter in duration, vary from strong to very light

                        but more clearly defined in Rhythm.

                                                              .

                   The Vibration Pattern in the Human world

                    could be described as a ‘Rhythmic Code’

             that if it were to be translated into Sound or Taps

                                 it would be like  this:

                           1.2.3  – 4

                           1.2.3  – 4

                           1.2.3  – 4

                          It is something extraordinary!…

                        However much – light or strong  

          has been perceptible to my senses throughout time

                   has usually gone on for a few seconds

                           in brief stop – start intervals

         with each session lasting between a brief minute or so

                 to some times up to near Five full minutes.

               I had always assumed that this was perhaps  

          what the Readers were experiencing and referring to 

      because it is easier to express about it as if it was a ‘sound.’

.

        It was not until a few months back when i was too busy

         and preoccupied with other entries that i had a rather

             serious Ear … ‘invasion’ lol!… not on the outside

       which i had managed to heal beautifully after some period

          of having it harassed and nibbled as if by a mouse

        but farther inside to a depth not reachable by cotton tips

                           

        Previous minor ones i had either prevented altogether

     or stopped settling with a few Acidophilus mix applications.

    .

        This time somehow it managed to proceed deeper

            and it was during a few sessions of inserting

             an Acidophilus Mix cotton at the outer part 

        that i witnessed the most extraordinary confirmation

                                 of its Vibratory Activity

                    and the Closest one Resembling Sound

              as i could ever perceive with my senses

  – other than employing Nasa Supersonic equipment, Lol! …

    .

           It was the very familiar Rhythm of 1.2.3 – 4

                 but experienced Inside the ear

             it sounded much like a Drum Beat, like:

Malassezia Vibration MD

                            Do-Do-Do – –Doop

                            Do-Do-Do – –Doop

                            Do-Do-Do – –Doop

         Mixed or accompanied with an additional sound

              a somewhat shrill, high pitched Sorrowful

     yet Aggressive, threatening tone, coming in waves.

            It was an Absolutely Astonishing Marvel!

           A Combination of a Polemic Battlefield Song

            of Attack in the sound of a Rhythmic Drum

          -of an army knowingly advancing to its death-

           and a Mournful yet Aggressive Dolphin Song

                  – definitely a Sound this one!  

.

The Drum one was the unmistakeable rhythm of Malassezia

the other i wondered  whether it might have been

the Acidophilus Bacteria  or whether both were Malassezia.

In order to verify beyond doubt i stopped inserting Acidophilus

for a couple of days and let Malassezia be and watch

if it would do it on its own – – –  and it Did!…. the Drum!

There is a good chance of course that although i had stopped

inserting the Acidophilus Mix there were still some ‘guys’ alive

      from both sides and the battle kept going on. (**)

So far i can tell i have never experienced any vibratory sense

      from Acidophilus alone while the Rhythmic ‘Sound’

       was identical to the Malassezia familiar vibrations…

                    A very  Definite Vibration

but doesn’t Vibration also equate with Sound in some level???

.

The Mournful Dolphin sound on the other hand was fluctuating

                  or rather undulating, coming in waves

                     but with no particular rhythm to it

    and have never heard it or sensed it before or since

    either on its own or in combination with the Drum beat.

  A Rhythmic Flatter in the Cotton-Tip serviceable area, yes

   but never the Shrill Mournful Sound nor the Drum Beat…

  possibly because all other time it had remain in the outer parts 

               where it was felt by the skin as a sensation

           where its sound/vibration could not be perceived

                  by the inner audio part of the ear???

..

                  Each session of the above incident

            went ‘on and off’ lasting for near 10 full minutes

            -longer than any other time or any other place-

                     followed by the usual dead quiet 

              after each Acidophilus – Malassezia clash

                     but was repeated for a few days

                                -perhaps surviving longer

                       due to being deep near the ear drum?-

        until it was all over and the ear finally free and clear!

.

       Going one step further and into dangerous ground

           of speculation, i wonder if the vibration/sound

            is not also a ‘transmission’ system between

          Malassezia and its Maniacal Cloning Sisters 

                    being extensions of its Self!…

  I say ‘also’ because its motions from place to place

appear to have a direction – especially when Relocating

     from a place ‘treated’ with some substance

    but rather erratic when cloning inside a lesion 

as well as when observed under Digital Microscope.

Therefore i assume that the rhythmic vibration/sound 

   is not due to its movement ‘From or To’ a location

                but -perhaps?- as a sign of 

               Initiated Cloning Activity

 … and / or – – – Transmitting signal to its Sisters???

.

All Speculations and kind of Dr Who stuff, Lol!…

but i do not see it as a too far-fetched idea either

considering all Species in Nature use Sound, Vibration

and other means -perceptible or not to man- 

    of communicating between themselves

             Planetary Spheres included,

     emanating sound – or  so we are told,

so why not the Yeast/Fungus Species as well 

especially since the vibration – and stages of activity

     are undoubtedly felt by many people in similar ways.

.

           I Believe Unless one is Open to Embracing

              Even what may seem outlandish ideas

                  One Cannot Observe Objectively.

                                              Observing

                                Jan 2015

“There is a good chance of course that although i had stopped

inserting the Acidophilus Mix there were still some ‘guys’ alive

      from both sides and the battle kept going on”. (**)

Malassezia ~ Another Accidental Discovery!

          

                 * UNDER THE MICROSCOPE *                    

                            *

                * Malassezia ~ Another Accidental Discovery! *

                          Discovery

                                                     *                                                                                   

                          While looking at Photos in my Files

                            Suitable for the Previous Entry

                         Malassezia Furfur~ Yeast or Mycelia

I Found and enlarged the photo below in order to capture details

     and noticed something that had escaped my attention

      when preparing it for another Earlier Entry assignment

.

            The Photo below is of a Recent Faecal Sample

                showing the Presence of Yeast.

            What had escaped my attention previously

       was a long Green Hyphen – spread across the sample!

    Malassezia Faecal yeast and Hyphae 2 MD

          It is quite Similar to a Green Hyphen in the Eye

Malassezia Green Hyphae

The Green is one of the usually fluorescent Malassezia colours

but also possibly due to one of my recent ‘All Greens’ Diet Experiment.

.

   The next day while still thinking about the Green Colour

and how much could be attributed to Pityrialactone

 Malassezia and Pityriacitrin 2

and how much to my recent ‘All Greens’ Diet

there was a conveniently helpful memory flash

            of something long forgotten.

Some life time back, long before the A-TB illness

or having started any swimming or other exercise

except for frequent long walks for relaxation,

and when all was running fine, except of the occasional

Bladder Infection which never actually showed

in the Urine tests and could have been… irritation?

What kind of irritation? … i will not entered on to this.

So, i had gone to a GP – no established regular doctor

since my visits were only occasional and far in between.

I do not remember the reason/cause of the visit

but i remember two distinct points the Doc and I discussed:

1) The Urea Result

     was  below the Normal levels – on the Positive side

     and he told me he had never seen anything like that

     in his entire carrier and asked me about my diet

     (Tones of Fresh Fruits and Veggies as always).

.

2) At times – and at that Specific time of the Visit

    i used to get an Overall Orange Skin Hue.

    I used to Interpret it as Liver Distress due to

    anxiety, stress, worry, and all other micro-aliments

    or rather emotional responses to Life’s events

    that could produce and upset a Perfectionist Virgo.

    The Doc noticed it at the time and told him

    what i thought it was but he asked if i ate a lot of

    orange coloured fruits/vegies such as Carrots, Pawpaw.

    Carrots i did not,  but Pawpaw i did eat a lot.

     I was doubtful of his assessment but remained opened

     to the possibility and started to observe its periodic

     appearances and whether they coincided with

     any of the causes i attributed it – since i ate Pawpaw daily

     but the Hue was Not there Permanently.

     Observations proved me right …most of the time

     but there were those unexplained times that neither

     of the two cases could be considered as the contributor.

.

These days the same Hue is more Frequent and varies in scale

     between the Gray of Death as i have thought it

      believing at times that i have only days to live

             to Bright Orange i also used to attribute

    to Liver stress due to A -TB illness and medications

         to a Greenish Orange with some hint of Gray…

      which is of course unmistakable and has primarily

                           Only One Contributor!

     M CS- MD

     Her Evil Majesty!

    The Indications and Possibilities of all this, are

> The Yeast must have been Present but without any other

   accompanying symptoms attributable to it

  prior to either manifestation or knowledge of my Illness

  (up until the commencement of Antibiotics, X-rays etc)

> The Gray, unmistakable ‘end stage’ of its ‘amniotic’/Biofilm

                  dying and drying out.

>The Orange, definitely due to Pityrialactone

    with a slight possibility of partial contribution

    due to large intake of Yellow/Orange

    of Bananas, and Pawpaw

> The Green, again Pityrialactone

   with a slight possibility of partial contribution

   due to large intake of the ‘All Greens’ Diet.

     Malassezia Green Diet

                    The New Elements Coming to light

* The Gray was never detected as present or was not noticeable

* The Gray and the accompanying distinct Malassezia smell 

                became apparent only after the serious Outbreak

* The Green  other than as a mixed hue on the skin

    and also in the Samples and also in the Samples

    was also never detected until after several months

                            on the All Greens Diet.

* The Orange had been present on occasions of stress

   and detected way prior to establishment of Illness

   but without any other accompanying symptoms

   until after commencement of associated treatments.

* The Orange – back then- appeared to be

   more frequently associated with stress etc

   rather than the steady sizeable daily fruit consumption.

.

           Perhaps an indication that

> The Yeast tended to Proliferate

    During stress or Immunity taxing  times

    but checked back down  when normality returned

    therefore No Gray or Orange remained

    and was cleared off quickly.

> Orange or Green are Primarily prominent

a) By quantity of Yeast Presence

    and consequently amount of Pityrialactone

b) Possibility of some Food Ingredient Colour

              .

Malassezia Furfur ~ Yeast or Mycelia

       Malassezia Faecal yeast and Hyphae 1 MD

                                  K1: *what is the difference

                  between malassezia yeast and malassezia flur*

                    

                            IF i understand Correctly

                         a) From Research material:

         1) Either the Yeast does not always grow Hyphae

         2) Researchers had difficulty inducing it to do so in the Lab 

         3) Yeast Form does not always develop Hyphae

  Yeast or Mycelial MD

                                  (Click on Image to enlarge) 

.

  or b) From Microscope Observations of my Own Samples

      when it does, they are much smaller than the Mycelial Type.

         The Lesions also appear to be much smaller in size.

.

                 Below the Mycelial Hyphae are referred to 

                           as ‘Short Fungal Hyphae’

Malassezia spaghetti-meatballs

I am not sure where they get that because looking at my Mycelia ones

Malassezia Mycelia Hyphae MD

                       They Look anything but Short

               especially in comparison to the Yeast ones.

  .

              Of course not being a Microscope Professional

               i must admit that i find it easier to differentiate

                       between the two types of Lesions

                     rather than the two types of Hyphae.

                   Having only observed my own samples

              I can still not be sure whether the differences i see

             between the quantities and sizes of  the Hyphae and Lesions

             of the Initial stages of outbreak and the current ones

             are due to a difference of Yeast and Mycelia

             as two different stages of Malassezia development

                                            or

             a) An Improvement of my Skin Immunity

             b) A Reduction of Presence and Size and

             c) Inability of the Yeast to Develop to previous extensive levels

                 due to the Methods and Applications i have implemented

                 targeting Both Topical and General Immunity Improvement

                 and Inhibition of a Complete Malassezia Cycle

                 Not excluding of course the Possibility

                 of other contributing Factors i may not be aware of.

                                               ~

   K2: * fingernails turning dark from demodex *

Dirty Nails google image

        I m not sure if Demodex causes finger nails to turn dark

               but i know this is a sure Malassezia sign.

         It turns gray when its liquid carrier /Biofilm dries out

               and it is then harder to clean or wash off.

.

        Some time back i used to apply Oil Free Neutrogena

             but nowadays handling the Acidophilus mix

             when applying it to other areas of my Body

            does not allow any built up under the nails.

.

          If i had to treat it now i would dip my fingers/nails

           in Acidophilus Mix several times during the day

                      and particularly at Bed time  

      because of the additional benefits instead of Neutrogena.

.

            The photo displayed above is a Google image

                             and may or may not

                  have anything to do with Malassezia.

.

                      I do not have any Personal ones 

         with enough gray accumulation to be photographed

                .

               Below is another Google image i picked

                    displaying the nails of a person

                believing them to be dirty from work

           despite -to their admitting- trying to clean them 

                  “with a cotton swap and alcohol

                 – and that only worked to a certain extent.

                     They still aren’t clean looking.”

       Nails Google image

           To me it looks like accumulation of Malassezia gray

              and progression to white grit  (trouble brewing!)

                  The fact that it can be visible to the eye

       and be photographed as well, indicates a serious case.

   The person is highly preoccupied with the look of the nails

                      in regards to Nail Polish ‘Beauty’

                and Totally Unaware of the lurking beast…

                I cringe thinking what they would reveal

                    looked under digital microscope

               when even perfectly healthy looking nails

                  can reveal being heavily infested.

             .

                        ( Photo examples of my Nails 

                        comparing View with Naked Eye

                        against Revealing under Microscope ones

                        are posted in Related Earlier Entries.)

          K3: * how to kill malassezia from inside *                                                      

              I have not discovered anything yet

       that would kill Malassezia Internally as such

   and i am not sure whether there would be anything

     that would not be simultaneously too dangerous

                        for the Body as well

           so i have turned my efforts and attention

      into Building General Internal – External Immunity.

Malassezia ~ Pityrosporum Folliculitis

   

       * READERS’ QUESTIONS & KEYWORDS *

                Malassezia Q&A's MD 

                          *

                   * Malassezia ~  Pityrosporum Folliculitis *

                                                         *

        Folliculitis - Malassezia

K1: *should i take a probiotic pityrosporum folliculitis to balance skin?*                    

              During the Initial stages of the Malassezia outbreak

                         the Hair Follicles on both my Legs

                         were swollen with Pus filled Bumps

                           clearly visible to the naked eye

                     braking into large painful cheesy lesions.

                       At the time i poured, splashed and threw

                         everything i could think of, on them

                  including heat treatment trying to clear them.

               Invariably nothing worked and some treatments 

               ended with more painful messy results than others.

                     Then came Morning walks by the Beach

                       at a just under the knee level of water

                             covering the entire leg length.

                     This brought relief and change within days

                 but they were so heavily infested that the battle

                             went on for quite some time.

.

    Taking a Probiotic Orally would certainly enhance

the Friendly Flora Internally but how long it would take

      to bring balance on the outside would depend

on how extensive and severe the Folliculitis problem is

          and the general condition of the Body

          in regards to Health/Illness, Nutrition

           and -detrimental effect- Skin Cleaning or Cosmetics use.

    Malassezia Probitotics  MD

     Applying Acidophilus Mix or Seawater (No salt +water!)

                 and some of the Bath time measures

                 as details in earlier relevant Entries 

                 i believe should achieve a faster result

                Keeping in mind the two crucial Points

                1) – The Quality of the Probiotic Product *

                2) – The Relocation Factor

                Both detailed in Earlier Related Entries

                   * See  Probiotic Product Warning Entries

                                                    ~  

                  K2 : * malassezia yeast live on brushes? *

malassezia on brushes md

                     It does Not Live (reside/survive) on a Brush

                 (Not for long – yet long enough to contaminate)

                       But it Can Be Live (alive) on a Brush.

                                                                .

         Anyone who has spent some time reading through this blog

                    and has understood the stages of the cycle

            should be able to work the answers to this question.

      I would suggest the Reader of this Keyword, does exactly that

       to take advantage of the general Benefits of Understanding.

                                                       *

                         Scratching MD

      * Most elements of this Issue have been covered in detail

                             in several Earlier Entries,

               therefore this will be only a quick Summary. *

                                                    *

Many of the Readers who have shared their stories with me

have related items or events they have observed or believed

have caused them flare ups but None so far has mentioned

how long it has taken from First Appearance to a sure Spread.

.

Looking back at my own case i too find it difficult to pin-point

a specific length of time and i believe there could be truly

no specific term in days, weeks, months etc for everybody

due to unique individual ways, living elements

and personal conditions, as well as how many symptoms

and how far back were noticed, or could be traced and verified

as legitimate ones relating specifically to Malassezia 

when many other transient things could produce similar symptoms.

.

     Once Malassezia turns from a Commensal, Natural part of Body Flora

     into a problem causing Pathogen, its Extend and Severity

     depend on a combination of Several Internal and External Factors

Commensal Pathogen MD

             either Allowing and or Contributing to its Proliferation

                                        such as:

* A Weak Immune System, due to Illness or other causes

* Long Term Medications

* Poor or Wrong Nutritional Elements

* Application of a Variety of harmful Cosmetics and Hygiene products.

      .
