Malassezia ~ Cold – Crazy and Starving – Lol! (PT 3)


        Malassezia and Diet Again (PT 1)

Dinner MD2


Although i have conducted several dietary experiments

my Diet has never been geared towards the Purpose

of affecting Malassezia other than temporary

in order to observe if anything can directly or indirectly do so

 to a noticeable degree either by addition or subtraction.



My Steady Aim has Always been to Provide my Body

         with the Essential Nutrients Required 

  to Support the Best Possible degree of Immunity Function 

  under the current – at the time – circumstances



Each time i had to reduce or modilfy items for some time

i would wait until the best opportunity when able to try again

adding back bit by bit up to the new limit of tolerance.



   So, I have recently tried to claw back some of the good things

  i had to give up – and keep working my way through 

  to the upper limit of how much of the Camel’s Body

 i can push back into the ‘Tent of Limitations’

          much like the story of the insolent Camel

Camel and Tent

I have gone through different variations which i have already posted

but recently have Added and Enriched each meal with a few more Items

and this is how it stands for now in comparison with the previous version.

Malassezia ~ Food-Diet Questions & Lab Findings(2)

Is there any Relationship between Certain Foods and Malassezia?


                                   I Personally Believe:

                    One of the Most Malicious Contributors

                                of Malassezia Proliferation

                         Is a Frequent Accumulation 

                       of Unprocessed by the Body 

         Undigested – High Temperature Treated/Cooked

           Roasted or Fried Animal Fats, OILS and Butter

              in the Descending and Lower Colon Area


 Malassezia Intestines


  Some Readers may find a bit confusing

   My declaring on One hand, that i Believe

      ‘No Diet or Foods have any Direct Impact on Malassezia’

                                 While on the Other

              I deliver a strong statement that i consider

‘Most Malicious Contributors of Malassezia Proliferation 

Roasted or Fried Animal Fats, OILS and Butter

when present in the Descending and Lower Colon Area’

                             with such conviction…


                                  Let me Clarify:

                  I have stated before that Malassezia

* May Obtain Nutrients from the Skin

* May Obtain them via the Blood

* I have observed Heavy Concentration of Malassezia Presence 

   when there is Lower Colon Congestion.

* And as Above that Animal Fats, Oils, Butter 

  when Present in the Colon cause Malassezia Proliferation.


                  My Reasoning is:

* If it Obtains Nutrient from the Skin 

   then Diet and Specific Foods at large make No difference.


* If it Obtains Nutrients from the Blood  

   since All Foods -Individually or as Diet- are Converted

   into Elements such as Amino-acids, Sugars, Lipids etc

   again, Diet or Foods make No Difference

   as these elements are always present and available in the Blood.


* If it Obtains Nutrients from the Colon area

 – Already being Extracted and Converted by the Body

  and only small residues of partially undigested /unprocessed

  again it makes No Difference – or not much…


                      The only exception is FATS, OILS etc

                      as it is already Known and Established

         that Malassezia uses them Primarily as Growth Medium

                               and NOT as FOOD!…

Or Perhaps even as Food when Converted to Lipid Components?)       


                      Does it now make more sense?…

                                                          * * *


Something interesting i spotted in my research rounds: 


       I will not refer here to the frequent Blood Clotting problem

               dealing with for the past five years or more

          and never connected or suspected having anything to do

             with Malassezia – IF it does…


     The Questions that arise for me here are Food Related:


Q1: Does Malassezia have Direct Access to the Blood

                        and any Effect on it

             (other than the Dig-in for its Cloning)


                 Not Clear in the above Quote

If Blood and the Calcium induced Clots and Malassezia’s effect

     was tested/found in a Petrie/Tube apparatus, etc

or Directly in  Blood Plasma – and … where was Malassezia

                 or when introduced into it?

(I wish i could have a little chat with the Researcher! …Honestly! 🙂 )                

Q2: Does Malassezia have the same effect on the Clot Formation

       in the Blood inside the Body or only in the Lab glass tubes

(though the conclusion at the end of ‘quotes’ below implies the former)


Q3: Does it mean Malassezia’s beta-glucan part when released in the Blood

         – either by direct access or during its digging-in for its cloning –

        activates the Body’s Blood Clotting mechanism


Q4: Is there any Relationship between the Calcium present in the Blood

             -via Foods and/or Supplements- and Malassezia’ s

                               Obtaining it for its needs


If the answer is -Yes- to any of the above i would think

    Diet or Foods would have No Direct Impact on Malassezia


Below is a brief extract of the above i highlighted in bold and red:

 – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

       …. acetone-treated M. furfur also shortens the calcium-induced clot formation time,

while treatment with zymolyase, which causes decomposition of beta-glucan, did not shorten it


        These results suggest that M. furfur activates the blood coagulation systems,

            and the beta-glucan portion of M. furfur plays a key role in shortening

                                        calcium-induced clot formation

   – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

                     More about Malassezia and Nutrients:

                                             Difficulty in culture is due to

             limited knowledge about the nutrient requirements of M furfur,

                  which leads to erroneous diagnosis and incorrect treatment.

                 Does ‘limited’ imply simply they don’t know?

  – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

M furfur is thought to obtain its nutrients from secretions from human eccrine glands.


     These glands are connected to the hair follicle (Figure 1 :5) where M furfur is known to

inhabit (Lopes et al., 1994). The secretions from the eccrine gland contains a variety of

                 fatty acids, amino acids and simple sugars (Noble, 1981).

           Again – No Direct Connection with Foods or Diet


  – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Mfurfur requires medium to long chain fatty acids for growth (C12-C24) as it is unable

to synthesise them de novo (Faergemann, 1989). Lipids isolated from skin secretions

are mainly C18 and include oleic acid, palmitic acid, lauric acid, myristic acid and

stearic acid (Noble, 1981). The concentrations on skin are considerably lower than

those supplied in media. Oleic acid, for example, is found in skin secretions at a

concentration of 0.002 gil but in culture media, it is usually provided at concentrations

of 1.0 gil (Van-Gerven and Odds, 1995).

The above indicates –as i have already suggested as a possibility

in my earlier Blog/Blog Entries– that Malassezia may obtain (some)

of its needs from our Skin and not depend -If it does- directly on Foods

   – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

     ...and ……. M furfur will grow on a medium containing egg yolk as the only lipid.

    – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Eggs anyone??… Especially Fried — Served in the Colon???



I would say ‘No Thanks!’ and go for my current daily as it stands for now:


Pre- Breakfast

  Orange Juice

1 Cup Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice diluted with hot water


1 Banana – 1 Avocado –1/4 small Paw Paw – 1/3 Lg Mango – Smoothie

Malassezia Breakfast

(Mango currently in season – i never resist – only have cut down quantity)


 A Mixed Raw/Steamed Green Caterpillar’s Delight …

Sources quoted in the above document are a decade or more old…

This does not necessarily invalidate the information

but perhaps it indicates the slow progress of advancing …


There is more to Dissect, Analyse and Digest in this document

Malassezia ~ Food-Diet Questions & Lab Findings(1)



Malassezia and Diet


  * Malassezia ~ Food-Diet Questions & Lab Findings PT 1 *



Does Malassezia Feed on Sugar? 

Is there any Relationship between Certain Foods and Malassezia?


These are some of the Questions i had not so far been able to answer

    with absolute certainty throughout my several experimentations

some on a small and brief scale and some over several weeks or months.


    Some of my Findings i have already published in Earlier Entries.

Some Previous Search regarding prescription medication for Malassezia

   indicated that the medication worked by interfering with the utilisation

   of Vitamin D (and  Calcium?) that Malassezia needs or the formation

      of its Cell,  i have been unable to trace back that source again

          but the information was neither clear nor very detailed.                                                    

          Anyway there is enough material below at least for now…  

  Here i shall endeavour to make sense and deal with more questions

arising from some Researchers findings.

Malassezia composition

                            My Questions …unanswered… 😕

      Q1: What does ‘Malassezia was unable to Ferment Sugars

                            means in practical terms?  


Q2: What are the Implications of Not Fermenting Sugars 

      for Malassezia or the ‘Patient’ in connection with Diet


 Q3: How does Fermenting / Not Fermenting affect Malassezia


 the  ‘Major Components of  the Cell Wall are Sugars ~70% 

          (similar Relationship to Water and Human Body)


    The first part of this piece of information indicates clearly

Malassezia utilises SugarProteinLipids and certain Minerals

for the Construction of its Cell – and my guess is, most likely also

        for a good Reserve to Impart to its Cloning Sisters

             for their survival and initial development.


       No doubt All these Elements are Readily Available

         and Provided by our Bodies in several ways

                 i.e By Blood, and Digestive Track

   From Mouth right through to Eliminating part of the Colon…

            Digestion is Dependent on Digestive Juices

        such as Produced by Pancreas and Gall Bladder 

               and Bacteria and Yeasts (Probiotics)

    for the Breaking down of Foods to Category Elements.

If Malassezia is Part of them i have Not Seen mentioned anywhere

                                 or whether 

           ‘Malassezia unable to Fermenting Sugars’

            means in the Lab /Petri Dish – (as Food?)

       or in the Body – (as Part of the Digestive function?)


A few questions arising from the above may indicate whether Diet

and / or Specific Foods Could Directly affect  Malassezia Provision

or whether- as I have been suspecting all along makes No difference:


Q4: How  does Malassezia Obtain these Elements?


A) Directly from Consumed Foods – i e Digestive / Intestinal Canal


B) From  Other Body Sources

    such as Body Fluids, ie Male/ Female Genitals


C) From Blood


D) Already Processed Readily Available Elements in Faecal matter.


E) Does it Obtain 

    1) For Itself/Constuction, Survival etc from A – B – D

    2) For Cloning Provisions from  Blood  (- C)

    3)  Uses Blood (-C ) only for Cloning.



A) – Malassezia Fermentation Ability 

     would be required for a complex extraction/utilisation process


B) and D) – Would Explain


1) It’s Constant and Persistent Presence

    and In and Out Traffic in Both these Areas


2) A and D would also mean that Individual Foods

    and/or Specific Diets  may have an Impact 

    on its Condition and Ability to Complete its Cycle 

    should those Elements be Provided

    While in case C

    It would make No Difference to either Diet or Individual 

    or Groups of Foods, since the Body Processes All Foods

    and Converts them  into a Variety of Elements

    Contained in the Blood

My Personal inclination is leaning towards:


1)  Utilises Nutrients as in (D) – in Fecal matter

2)  Blood (C) for Cloning


                  In Either case

1) A Variety of Elements are available

2) No Specific Diet or Foods make any Difference


     I guess we ll have to wait for Professional Research

             to Discover and Eventually let us know


          In the meantime Personal Experimentation

               with what works even if Temporarily

-Remembering the Entire Body Health is More Important Long Term-

                       is the way i go about.


        One Observation i have witnessed Consistently 

                since i started my Malassezia Blogs

          is that After the Christmas Holiday Season

 The Number of Visits in All of them climb to Quadruple!

                        …and they are not spam!


I believe it is not coincidental but as a result of systematic over-Indulgence

during the entire holiday season with so many culinary temptations around

that eventually bares some Impact on Malassezia also Feasting its way

and People experiencing either a Surprise Start-Up for the Susceptible

    or Bad Flare – Up for those already suffering from the affliction


This is the ONE OVERALL Aspect in regards to Diet and Foods

            that i have seen as Making a Difference

            as i have already mentioned in the Entry

    Malassezia ~ Diet that made it Submit…Temporarily! 


There is one more i have also observed during ‘On – Off ’ times

but Cannot Substantiate and it is that Dairy and Mushrooms

   Provide either directly Calcium or via Vitamin D related

connection/conversion to Calcium which Malassezia needs

to Build its hard Cell – (when it turns to the Crystalline Hyphae Form)

Malassezia ~ Diet – Choice Between ‘Two Evils’



Malassezia and Diet


  * Malassezia ~ Diet – Choice Between ‘Two Evils’ *


     One more Important Point i noticed and is worth mentioning

is a case of Choice between ‘Two Evils’.

Malassezia between 2 evils


Though -knowing how the “Greens Diet’ works for me- and often

get tempted to implement it to curb Malassezia Levels

       i usually follow that Directives of my Body

  as it Knows its Needs better than my guesses.


So i have been Alternating a Variation

of the Fruity/Raw and Mixed Steamed

according to indications and needs.


* Some days i have 2 Fruities and 1 Mixed gently Steamed

  (as close to Raw as can be considered edible)


* Some days 1 Fruity and 2 Mixed Steamed

     Malassezia Meals1

          Despite the Three Splayds beside the Pyrex dish

         this is only a ‘small’ lunch compared to the Normal


I have noticed that the days i have 2 Fruities and 1 Greens

Malassezia comes out of the Internal Parts much more frequently

throughout the day- and spreads outwards like a warm liquid

causing minimal or much milder burning and itching sensation.


    While on the 2 Greens days, frequency Slows Down Considerably 

 Possible reasons i have detailed in

    Malassezia ~ Diet that made it Submit…Temporarily!

    but it Burns the Skin like Blistering Fire.


It is a matter of degree of discomfort really

and of course the more that comes out the worse it is.


During the day it does not make much difference

since i can feel it and wash it off as thoroughly as i can

but if this happens during the Night it can be a torture

with pain that pierces through the other side of the soul! ….


Leaving it on the skin, it sinks in wherever it decides to settle

and develops the maddening Itchy Bumps no matter whether

it was Mild or Scorching initially and the Itchy Bumps eventually

break into Itchy Burning Lesions.


So it comes down to a Choice Between Two Evils.


Option 1

2 Fuities + Water between meals and 1 Mixed Steamed


Provides more Natural Sugar and therefore Energy, Hydrates the Body

  and …Activates Malassezia in frequency …. but its spreading effect

is much Milder in regards to itching and Burning at least at the initial stage.


The negative aspect of this may be … More Malassezia

   and if the spreading occurs during sleep

one may wake up with a nasty surprise of a Burn like this:

  Malassezia Breast Burn 1

I woke up with this recently – but was not Food caused.

  It is only to show what can happen during the night

Details: “Malassezia Treatment-Relocation- Attack


   Option 2

1 Fruity + Water between meals and 2 Mixed Steamed

Malassezia Meals


Provides Less Hydration, Less Live Digestive Enzymes, Less Energy

and Slower Digestive Process as well as Malassezia outwards progress

       but when it spreads it Burns and Itches like the Fires of hell.


The Positive aspect is the penetrating Burning effect can be Alerting

allowing to act before it settles and prevent Itchy Bumps and Lesions.


                   Is there a middle solution? ….

Malassezia Devil

 Can one Bargain with the Devil?


     * * *


    *Does Malassezia Feed on Sugar?

* Is there any Relationship between Certain Foods and Malassezia?

* Home And Lab Food Findings Comparisons


These are some issues i will endeavour to deal with in Next Entry
