3- Acidophilus – How it Works Best
I always keep the Acidophilus Mix container on top of the Urn
in order to be on a par with my Body temperature.
Although it keeps well for 24 hours and often longer
i prefer to prepare a smaller Fresh batch
and keep replacing as often as needed.
One Night i decided to keep a small batch at room temperature
by my bed side cabinet – rather than have to get up if did not need to.
By morning i noticed with surprise that, even though i had not used it
it had developed a rather prominent Sour smell as if it had gone off
yet not particularly unpleasant
I thought perhaps it might have been contaminated by Yeast
prior to putting the Mix in it because the smell was similar
to one i detect sometimes in the Panty Liners
after a few hours of an obvious Malassezia attack having taken place.
I have not been able to determine whether it means that Acidophilus
has given its battle and died or it was caused by Malassezia Interaction
or whether the smell might even be produced by Dead Malassezia instead
either being accidentally present as in the case of contamination
or during a treatment of an attack.
Acidophilus gives off a distinct Sour smell in the Yoghurt
which means it has digested the Milk Protein
but it is Not Dead otherwise one would not be able to make
a New batch of Yoghurt using a small portion of it as a Culture.
Malassezia has a very distinct mix of bitter and sour taste
which i often discover on my lips immediately after a meal
especially if Fruity or whenever it goes after moisture / humidity.
It also produces a Horrible Sour ‘Off’ Sewerage like smell
during a ‘Die Off’ episode – naturally more potent
due to coming from the intestinal canal, so it is hard to tell
if the outside Sour smell is a Good sign indicating
Acidophilus having Terminated Malassezia
or a Bad one meaning Acidophilus gone off
or Both Acidophilus and Malassezia are dead in the Battle Field, Lol!…
Nevertheless, i prefer to rely on my nose even if rather fussy
instead of deductive assumptions until i’m able to verify Facts,
so i Prefer to keep a Small Batch, Warm near Body Temperature
and Clean up Area and Replace Pad or Panties
and Prepare a New Batch of Acidophilus Mix when smell is detected.
Keeping it Warm, as close to Body Temperature as possible but No higher
sets it Ready for Immediate Action – much like the making of a Yoghurt Batch
Requiring Warm Environment and Time …
The Pros – i Know of – Keeping Acidophilus Warm:
– Ready for Action Immediately before Malassezia tries to escape.
– Takes Shorter time to do the job
– Keeps a Pleasant Freshly Baked Bread Fragrance
– Lasts Longer
For Best Results
– The Capsules must be High Billions Potency of Acidophilus Bifidobacteria
– The Capsules Must be Fresh for Maximum Number of LIve Bacteria
– Area must be Washed Well -prior to Application- with Warm Water
– Soap or Other Chemical Free
– The Area must be Adequately Saturated with Acidophilus Bacteria
by Frequent Applications or a well Soaked Cotton Wad with the Mix
and Mix must Not be too watered down – 1 Capsule +2-3 Tbs Water
– Area Must Not Contain Any
Anti-fungal, Anti-Bacterial or other Chemicals
that may Kill It – or render Its action Ineffective.
– Seawater does not appear to inhibit Acidophilus action
neither do it any harm but not absolutely sure.
– ( Salt+ Water may affect Acidophilus as is not the same as Seawater)
