Personal Experience, Reader Correspondence and Forum Browsing

over 5 years have shaped My Personal View as it stands currently

but always open and ready to change If/when new Facts arise:.

                   K3- * morgellons organism *

Morgellons is Not an Organism

It is a Condition – a Bundle of Symptoms.

Malassezia on the other hand IS an Organism

         And so is Demodex.

.

1) A Variety of Symptoms are Not Uniquely ascribed

    or caused by either Malassezia or Morgellons.

Many are caused by various other organisms or conditions.

2) Malassezia is Medically Recognised and Detectable

                      and so is Demodex

    Morgellons is Neither – at least not so far.

         (Delusional Parasitosis is the easiest diagnosis 

          for our ‘Professionals’ and Not only for Morgellons.)

 3) Morgellons majority of Symptoms are either

     Indistinguishable or Identical to Malassezia’ s

 4) Both Malassezia and Morgellons are difficult to Identify

                        and /or verify due to

Medicos Ignorance, Resistance or Acceptance and cooperation

   regarding Perseverance with Right Testing

.

                         Malassezia

Being Viewed as a Natural Part of Body Flora

   and Failure to recognise or adequately evaluate

   the severity of its effects as a Pathogen

Difficulty obtaining evaluation and prescription for Right Tests

Difficulty in Collecting and (methods of) Culturing in Labs

Reluctance due to Temporary Results

   of Long term Treatments  and associated Side Effects

Symptoms Fragmented and Categorised as Isolated conditions

   such as Seborrheic Dermatitis, Ptirosporum, Folliculitis, etc

.

                       Morgellons

Due to Lack of Detectable Cause

Outright Rejection and Classification of Symptoms

   as Delusional Parasitosis or similar terms.

.

          Malassezia and Morgellons

Both easy classification and dismissal

   as Delusional Parasitosis  often before

   proper tests are carried out – if at all

Many of the Symptoms

   May or may Not be caused by either

   Malassezia, Morgellons or Demodex

– Morgellons May or may Not be caused by an Organism.

There is Speculation by the Morgellons believer/followers 

that there may be a correlation between Myiasis and Morgellons

but a cause has not been officially established yet.

( Myiasis is caused by Tropical Fly Larva (maggot) in human tissue )

 More than one would want to know can be found here:

Myiasis NCBI

              Or a very quick reference here:

             Myiasis CDC

.

My Personal View  as things stand Currently

       Some Symptoms are due to

a) Various, Unrelated, to either Malassezia or Morgellons, causes

b) Some Malassezia Symptoms are mistaken for Morgellons

.

And for the Future (hopefully)

Science may eventually bring to light

        Whether Morgellons

a) Is a Condition in its Own Right

b) What its True cause is

c) Which of the Symptoms ascribed to it, are

– Directly attributed to it

– Which are Indirectly connected to it, and

Which are due to various other causes.

.

     Until then, we are all left to deal on our own 

and with our own opinions, assessments, speculations,   

inclinations and a myriad of unanswered questions.

        This stands true for Malassezia as well.

In the end and for the time being, names and classifications

                 do not matter as much as

   Treatments that can offer Relief and some Control

             that allows living a Reasonable life.

Malassezia: A Handful of Precious Gems

                                     

                      * Malassezia ~ Readers’ Contributions *

                                                       *

                              “A Handful of Precious Gems”

                 Malassezia-H of G-MD           

                                           ‘Thank Yous’

         are not in the Foremost of Readers minds when contacting me.

                           The majority of emails have more of 

           an Ambulance  Ambulance 2or Crisis kind of urgency,

                    concentrating on dealing with puzzling

                  frustrating and hard to resolve problems.

.

It takes a lot of courage to confide to a complete stranger

details of an affliction so private, confusing, wearisome

hard to identify, and without -or if- very little Medical help

and especially after a dismissive, Intimidating diagnosis 

           of ‘Nerves’, or ‘Delusional Parasitosis’.

    .

  So the handful of few and far in between received

  have been like a Handful of Precious Gems to me.

                                 Thank You-Sonata - MD

        I am Deeply Grateful for Your Support and Appreciation

             It has kept me persevering during times of doubt  

                                                  * * *

   Malassezia -ThankYous

To Whomever reads this…  

I have become ill & searched for answers on the internet…. 

During my search I was lucky to find this page Malassezia Daily 

of this unbelievable woman who also endures TB

& has an additional site in this same nature.

Unbelievable is her detailed links diaries, search for diagnoses,

self help medications & natural aids.

She shares outright her emotional pain & trauma that you can feel

thru the very soul of your body.  

I was lucky enough to receive personal email & we have been in contact

when both of us are strong at times.

Never met her it is my only dream.  She has kept me alive.  

Hoping she would write a book ….

… as this is one of those stories that shouldn’t go unknown

as she has helped many where others have provided no help at all!!  

… her websites say it all & much better than I could ever express.  

She is my heart & soul of survival …!!!

          * * *

Thank You-Sonata - MD

I knew I wasn’t crazy but have felt very alone with that knowledge until now.

I usually walk away with “depression and anxiety” as my diagnoses

after my ex-doctor visit. Now THAT makes me crazy!

I’ve been glued to your blog for the past 6 hours

as you explain all the strange phenomena crawling on my body! 

                Malassezia!

ThankYouThankYouThankYouThankYouThankYouThankYouThankYouThankYou!

Orange-peel skin; ‘demodex pores’ on my face; scalp that EXPLODES 

with grease and white sand every night around 9 or 10pm.

You explained them all!  From the bottom of my moldy heart, thank you.

   * * *

Thank You-Sonata - MD

Dear Sonata

Your blog URL was given to me by a kind person who emailed me through my website.

Your story is utterly amazing and I commend your courage, fortitude, and resolve

in dealing with it in the face of such medical ineptitude, ignorance, and arrogance.

You are a truly exceptional human being.

   * * *

Thank You-Sonata - MD

Useful info. Fortunate me I discovered your website accidentally,

and I’m shocked why this didn’t came about in advance! I bookmarked it. 

            *

Hi there! I read your blog on Malassezia Yeast

and would like to say a big thank you for taking the time to research into this area

I had two questions which I would appreciate your feedback on.

           *

Hi Sonata,Thank you for your wise words, and your encouragement.

           *

Hi, Ive been reading your blog and looking for answers to my hell

and think I may have found it – Thank you.

           *

Thank you so much for posting your (well-detailed) story. 

  * * *

Thank You-Sonata - MD

Helllo Sonata, I’ve been reading your M Yeast blog the past couple of days.

I’m so sorry for what you have gone thru.

Thank you so very much for your blog about it all.

I hope you realize how many people you must be helping.

I have a few questions if that is ok?

           *

Hi, Sonata……   It’s been hell, quite literally.

Your site and information from others saved our …

when the medical community failed.

           *

Hi Sonata, Thank you for sharing and pouring out your talents and experiences.

First of all, I think you are doing us all a great deed of good by your blog.

           *

Hello Sonata, I want to thank you for sharing your experiences

and I am sorry for all you have had to endure.

I wanted to let you know that you are not alone.

          *

Dear Sonatas, Greetings from the US.

Wanted to drop you an email of appreciation for sharing your story.

I have bookmarked the site

and will probably be finished reading it later tonight.

        *

Thank you sooooooo much for the response Sonata.

Thank You-Sonata - MD

Malassezia-Best Ways to Reduce in the Intestines P1

                         

                   * DAILY MAINTENANCE *                  

                         *

                                         Malassezia

           Best Ways to Clear and Reduce in the Intestines – P1

      Malassezia Intestines

                                                 *         

                   Fifteen Year Battle with Atypical TB, Bleeding Lungs

Highly Reactive Kidneys, Fracturing Ribs

Numerous Food Intolerances and a generally

Fragmented System and Weakened Immunity

due to a Decade Long Antibiotic Bombardment

adding the Malassezia ‘cherry on top’ affliction

have me constantly Juggling and Re-Balancing

Methods, Nutrients, Substances, Ways, Quantities, etc

to Meet Needs and Rectify Conditions as they arise.

During these times i Discover How – If – they have

any Impact on Malassezia Presence, Activity, Behaviour

and Consequences on the Skin or Internally

in addition to Frequently Conducted Specifically

     Malassezia Targeted Experimentations

of which the Results i Present in the Blog Entries.

                               * * *

Three accidents inside the house in the space of a couple of weeks

created the need for more changes and introduction of new methods

    -mainly targeting mobility improvement and reduction of pain-

     but appear to be having some effects on Malassezia as well

                  so a brief mention is presented below

                                            * * *

   Best Ways to Clear and Reduce Yeast in the Intestines – P1

* Enemas – Fortnightly

* Increase of Natural Dietary Fibre – Daily

                          Combining Both Enhances Results

                          Like Using a Broom and a Mop

.

1) Enemas ( Not chemical preparations in tubes

                           Enema Bag MD

         Just 4-6 Ltrs of Clean Warm Water

                   Will Clear Out a Lot of

> Cloning Potential Spores protected within the Biofilm

> Yeast or Fungus in Filament development stage

> Mature Cloning maniacs

> Newly Cloned maniacal sisters

  All of them Ready to cause more Pain ahead

.

  What the Enemas may Not be able to do 

  is clear what is clinging along the intestinal walls

  some digging-in in them, and causing

     Lesions, Pain and Bleeding.

.

       This can be helped by

2) Natural Dietary Fibre

Malassezia and Fibre MD

   Specifically Targeting an Effective Intestinal Brooming!

.

  Personally i Favour the type of Fibre

  Naturally Incorporated in Food, with the added Nutrients

  rather than Separated and Processed such as

  Bran / husks, legumes, wheat, rice, psyllium etc.

.

  So i have made some changes once more

  ( Breakfast and Lunch – Dinner remains the same )

                          Breakfast

  From Fruit Smoothie to Fruit Mix – Increased Fruit

  for keeping up with Body Hydration requirements

       Sonatas Breakfast-Malassezia

                         and added

  Nuts and Seeds to Boost Brooming Fibre

  > 5 – 6 Whole Walnuts

        > Sunflower Seeds – 1/2 -metric spoon- Scoop

        > Pumpkin Kernels – 1/2 -metric spoon- Scoop

.

                            Lunch

  > Sunflower Seeds – 1/2 -metric spoon- Scoop

  > Pumpkin Kernels – 2 -metric spoon- Scoops

     Pumpkin Kernels reputed to kill parasites

(whether capable of specifically killing Malassezia i don’t know)

Malassezia and Foods MD

.

Although every single item in my Diet is Rich in Fibre

of Both Soluble and Insoluble types

i felt that a Targeted way of administering it, both as

Increase as well as one Concentrated Meal on its own

might produce a more effective results than my current daily

of more Fruity/Veggie oriented, so i proceeded to trial it, and

found it to be producing some initial Improved Results.

For example Three results so far are very specific and noticeable

which i consider as indications of Definite Improvement

– until either confirmed or changed – time will tell…

.

    And these are

1) Increased Peristaltic-Eliminative Motions (2-3) Daily

    thus Reducing

> Rectal Congestion

> Malassezia Presence

> Need for more Frequent Enemas

.

2) More Frequent Die-Off Occurrences

   Before it used to be once every couple of months or so

   now since the change it is once every 5-10 days

   usually preceded the day before by

> An overpowering sourly- bitter taste in my mouth

   and all the way down my throat,

   followed the next day by the

> Die-Off with its own putrid smell coming upwards

   and in the intestinal faecal matter, accompanied by

> An awful, ‘Sick all over’ feeling,

   to an eventual Following Few Days of

> All Clear and Quiet … until next build up…

.

3) Intestinal ‘Hot Charcoal Pain’ Spots have disappeared.

    In an Earlier Entry i had mentioned that i could feel two painful

    hot charcoal like spots in both, Kidneys and Intestinal area

    that strongly suspected but could not confirm

    that were caused by Malassezia Lodging and digging in there

    and causing the familiar Burning pain.

.

            A collapse and near dying incident

    seemed to have cleared them off for a few months

details:  Malassezia in the Kidneys and Transverse Colon

                                  Malassezia in Transvesre

       but eventually the pains started to build again

      pretty close to where the previous ones had been

              -indicated by the yellow circles- 

   with pain intensity ranging in a medium to high scale

.

No Enemas had any effect on them even though the water

would reach and clear almost the entire transverse colon.

Within 2 Days of Introducing the Concentrated Fibre change

     i noticed considerable reduction in pain

and within a few more days All was completely gone!…

More than 3 weeks so far and still no sign of presence.

.

This change had no effect at all on the Kidney Hot spots

                              Malassezia in Kidneys

           but after the Dietary Fibre Changes

and the complete disappearance of the Intestinal Hot Spots,

         the introduction of a New weapon 

   Targeting Pain Relief and Improvement in the accident affected areas

     seem to have inadvertently Cleared Both Kidney Hot Spots as well

and i suspect it has also contributed to some degree

     in the frequency and intensity of the Die Off syndrome

          Yet neither a Total Clearance or ‘Cure’ of Yeast

     other than the Topical Relief and Massive Clearance

          in those Internal Organs  – and possibly more 

                   thus Reducing the Chain Effect of Cloning.

.

 Considering that the Intestinal Hot Spots had been there

 persistently for a few months (as also the Kidney ones)

 i am tentatively attributing the change to the Intended

            Targeted Intestinal Brooming!  

.

     Of the New weapon, and its effects on Kidneys 

     and generally  – IF – on the Yeast as well

                as IF – – – it meant it to be

  without introducing any other changes that could alter

Malassezia – A Reader’s Keyword or … Oily Hint?

                         

     * MALASSEZIA – READERS’ QUESTIONS & KEYWORDS *            

                          *

          * Malassezia – A Reader’s Keyword Or … Oily Hint? *

  Malassezia hint

.

                       K1- * oil doesn’t attract Malassezia *

.

I have been looking at this Keyword for some time now

 trying to think of different ways of interpreting it.

.

– It does not look like possibility of accidental Typo 

– It does not suggest or imply a question

– It is not phrased in a question format

 Whichever way i am trying to look at it

  i can only see it as a straight clear statement.

  A statement carrying a message … to me???

.

Inserting it timidly or surreptitiously in the Keywords section

-again i cannot interpret mode, motive or intention-

and without any further info or supporting evidence

no matter how well intentioned, it is not of much use

or enlightenment either to Me or to any other Readers.

It would have been preferable if the above Reader

had sent an email elaborating on the meaning

and premise of their statement, i.e.

.

Is their statement derived from:

– Personal view, assumption, logical deduction?

– Personal experience?

– Personal expertise in the medical/research field?

– Official medical information discovered?

– Knowledge or possession of recent scientific evidence?

– And perhaps provide links or explanations of how /why etc.

.

         If the Reader is a regular visitor to this Site

                       This is an Invitation

         Invitation MD

                          To please Do so!

There is always something new or …old to learn

and i am personally interested and open to learning

any Facts regarding Malassezia and its operations

and correcting my view – if there has been

any misinterpretation on my part

of my personal observations and experiences.

.

I am sure other Readers would be interested too …

.

In Several Entries throughout this Blog i have presented

some Informative Laboratory Research shedding more light

into the ways Malassezia operates – and some i have seen as

Supporting or Confirming my Own Observations and Findings

over a Five Year period – longer if pre-identification years

were included- when i was actually treating its symptoms

heavily and persistently with a variety of Oils and Ointments

           of all sorts, only to see them getting worse.

.

Below a small sample of Laboratory Research i have Presented

in earlier Entries throughout – with links to the sites provided.

Malassezia and Lipids 1-R

Malassezia and Lipids 3-1

      Malassezia and Lipids on skin

 Of course it is the Elderly, the Ill and the Immuno-compromised

 that get the problems, even though or perhaps because their skins

            do not secret / provide  those … ‘Attracting Oils’???

 Noting here the difference between ‘presence‘ and ‘problems

 ‘Presence‘ is Natural if Malassezia is present as a Commensal

 while the ‘Problems‘ are created when it turns into a Pathogen

Malassezia – Quick Readers’ Questions & Keywords

                         

      * READERS’ QUESTIONS & KEYWORDS  *            

                             *

         *Malassezia – Quick Readers’ Questions & Keywords*

                                                     *.

                        More Info regarding Keywords below

                   Can be found in Earlier Entries in Both Blogs.

                                                     *

                      Q1- *does cuticura help with candida*

    Malassezia - Soap MD

   The reason i am addressing this Keyword is because

    many Readers confuse Malassezia and Candida 

    and – or simply do not know which one is causing them problems.

                             As far as i know

a) Candida is easily identified in medical tests

b) There is a lot more research done and therefore more known

     about it, due to being easier to grow in Laboratories

     since, it appears, it does not require the presence

     of Lipids as a growth Medium as is the case with Malassezia

                                                            .

– Cuticura is an antibacterial soap not sold in Australia

   and have not had a chance to trial, which is good

   because i doubt it would have been good for Malassezia

– According to tests results No Candida was found on me

   nor do i seem to exhibit any of its characteristic symptoms

           -although there are many that are similar-

   so i cannot offer any opinion as to whether it would help

                          – but my thinking is:

   If antibacterial soaps cured Candida there would not

   have been such plethora of ads and expensive kits

   promising – unique ways of curing it! Lol!

   Candida seems to be another high Recurrence devil…

                     And speaking about Devils…          .

                             K1- *sexia*

        Malassezia - SEXIA MD. jpg                    

                   Really? … You think so?

           I m sure ‘She’ will be Flattered, Lol!

.

               K2- *malassezia sexual cycle*

             Malassezia Cloning MD

    MalasSeXia SeXual Cycle means… Maniacal Cloning!

      Reminds me of a line in a Eurythmics Song;

   ‘…Sisters are doing it… for themselves…’  Lol!

.

                  K3- *pms and trichotillomania

                             Malassezia -Trich and Binging

PMS is a time when Trichilomania Flare-ups on Scalp

 and /or other Body areas can occur

a) Due to Hormonal changes and

b) Cravings and Binge Eating – especially on Sugars

(More in Earlier Specific Trichillomania and Scalp  Entries)

        A Theory of Trichotillomania.

        K4- *Malassezia and depression*

      Malassezia and Depression MD

                 Quick list of helpers

   Herbs

> Withania powder Capsules

   ( pictured above – Absolutely marvellous! )

> St John’s wart

   Supplements

> B Complex x 3 Daily

> Calcium – Magnesium supplements

> Melatonin

Avoid Sugars, Alcoholic Drinks, Artificial Additives

(More details in earlier Entries) 

.

K5- *malassezia in teeth*

         Malassezia in Teeth. jpg.

Yes… it does plague the Teeth as well…

I have not mentioned this before because

i have not been able to produce a presentable proof

or microscope confirmation but  i have had many

lip attacks, fewer tongue and side of mouth

and even the occasional brief throat attempt

       -fortunately no gum problems!-

so 98% certainty that it gathers on teeth is not unrealistic.

 .

           To clarify this statement:

There are times i feel an overpowering bitter-sourly taste

in my mouth -usually a day prior to a Die Off  effect-

which i have come to identify as the Malassezia taste.

During those times, when i run tissue paper over my Teeth

it comes up with either an orange or a light lime-green hue on it

-both signs of Malassezia presence- and clear enough to see

with naked eye but not strong enough to show in photo

and neither collectable for viewing under microscope

-therefore the 98% certainty and the 2% missing ability

of proof presentation, unless one is there to witness.


Attempts to view saliva under Microscope were unsuccessful

due to saliva reflective quality – see details in Photo Entries.

.

My belief and observations indicate that usually

the ‘around and in mouth’ attacks are due to

> Sugary intake – would include Alcohol – and suspect

> Some Toothpaste/mouth Disinfecting products)

> Lack of Body Hydration forcing it to mouth, eyes, nostrils

    as well as genital areas are that naturally.

     (More about Hydration, Hygiene and Cosmetics products

      and Malassezia Behaviour caused by them, see earlier Entries) 

.

      K6- *shapoo with malassezia in it

Malassezia - Shampoo MD

Ok! … I admit i just cannot comprehend this one.

Who would want a Shampoo with Malassezia in it

when everyone would kill to find one that …Kills it? Lol!

Is someone trying to be funny?

I hope so … and it is appreciated

I would give anything for a good laugh 🙂

.

           K7- *pitryosporum folliculitis crawling*

         When crawling or Burning sensation is felt

                is best to immediately Rub-Wash

          with a harsh Face Cloth and Warm water. 

.

K8- *pussonpenis*

                        Malassezia ...pus sy

                   Oh Meow!… Which Puss? Lol!

Ok i must confess, i had to scrap completely an entire blog

and start from scratch after i discovered to my horror

          all the misspellings of Puss instead of Pus

           – due to the auto correct function-

    and was mortified at the laughs my Readers would have had

       especially when talking about private parts

            so lets get on to the serious question:

                          *puss on penis*

There can be many causes for pus on a penis

and i know …nothing about them other than vaguely

‘some kind of infection and help it not be a bad one’.

Malassezia is one of them and a bad one for that matter

due to the sensitivity of the area, the pain, persistence

recurrence and inconvenience that it causes.

Many Tips in earlier entries throughout both Blogs

and especially those dealing with the genital areas

may be helpful and worth reading and considering.

.

Assuming Symptoms in K9-K16 are caused by Malassezia  

K9-  *breast black line lesion*

K10- *black lesion itchy swollen*

K11- *black lumps on front vagina lips*

K12- *black dots on vagina lips*

K13- *blood filled bump on labia*

The appearing Black is Blood, either fresh, 

concentrated and encapsulated within the Lesion

where Malassezia will commence Cloning

or dried up on the surface while it is cloning underneath.

K14- *yeast infection sores on labia*

K15- *bump on lip of outer labia*

K16- *sores on labia*.

Malassezia ~ And a House on Fire…

                 

                                      *                    

       * Malassezia ~ And a House on Fire… *

                                      *

               Malassezia - House on Fire

                                      *     

               There was a time way back, that acting out of desperation

i would don on my Body any substance with the potential to kill

             without the slightest consideration of possible consequences    

                                                        * 

   Malassezia Daily 5 Year Revision

                                                       *

                      Through Experimentation, Trial and Error

                         and Close Methodical Observation

                      i came to develop better Understanding

                                               and

                   Learned the Importance of  Understanding :

                                    

* What it is All About

* How the Yeast Operates

* How to Recognise:

> Symptoms – Visible or Sensed

> Presence and Stages of its Development

* How Behind the Topical Visible

  There is the Larger, Hidden or Invisible

* How the ‘Only Minor – Now’ 

   Can Develop to an Unbearable

   and Unmanageable Condition – Later

   

                       About Treatments

                       Understanding that

    1) There is No Permanent Solution

   Unless All Causes are Removed

         and Previously Existing

   Normal Balance can be Restored

2) Almost All Remedies are 

> Temporary Solutions

> Temporary Solutions offer Temporary Relief

> Most Chemical Temporary Relief Solutions

   Encourage the Perpetuation of the Condition

> Some Temporary Solutions

   May have Successful but Messy Results

> The ‘Temporary’ aspect is disguised by

   ->The Topical Result

   -> The Brief Topical Symptom Relief, and

   -> Inability to perceive the whole picture

        of the entire ‘network’ operation

   -> Luck of Knowledge and Failure Recognising

       The Connection of the Resulting Aggravation

        as a Contributing Part of the Solution

        due to the Yeast / Fungus motility

        and consequent Change of Symptom Location.

                  Most Importantly, that

3) Our Best Defender is Our Immune System

     Malassezia Defender

4)  Constantly or Long Term Bombarding with Chemicals

                  an Immuno-compromised Body

                   in an effort to Control Malassezia

                                  is much like

                              Pouring Petrol

                House on Fire MD

                 On a House that has Caught Fire! 

           If Malassezia is causing problems

                 then our Body (House)

             is Already in some trouble (has caught Fire…)

   5)  Understanding that

Our Body may be Our vehicle

but it is also a Living Creature of Its Own

Obeying its Inherent Natural Laws.

Often our Neglectful or Ignorant ways of living

and the hidden from our view, knowledge

and understanding of Its Intricate Operations

Violate and Cause It a lot of Harm and Pain!

Some of the Pain caused by our Ignorance

we get to experience ‘with and through It’

and some of it, It suffers on Its own

unable to tell us Its story and Its needs

or how we can Help It heal…

We have invented many ways

to hash Its signals and mute Its Pain

while going on doing the wrong things

        over and over and over

until one day we get a Louder and Clear Call

that cannot be hashed or ignored anymore

and when this happens, more often there are

No Pain Free, No Friendly, Soothing Solutions…

Nor any clear insightful understanding of how

We have Actually Contributed to such result

 which usually appears as if it springs on us

 as Unexpected Shocking Surprise…  

                       .

    Through Trial and Error

 I have also Learned the Hard Way

                  that

               “Ten Wrong Actions do Not equal a Right One!”

                                                 *

                             Only Through Developing

                       A Fair Degree of Understanding

                             And Applying Right Action

                                      I have Gained

                                The Ability to Control

                              And the Power to Defend

       Fighting Malassezia MD

                                    All I have Learned

Malassezia- Next Update Due

                                                       *                    

             * Malassezia ~ Next Update Due *

   Malassezia Update Due

  * Near all Keywords i have been finding recently

    are similar and revolving around issues

    i have already dealt extensively in several Entries.

                                                       .

  * Recent events mentioned earlier

   (succession of accidents landing me in a wheelchair)

    have made it necessary to make changes

    and employ new means in order to address

    current needs and improve my condition.

         .

    These changes and additional measures

    have produced a noticeable impact on Malassezia.

    Given that any changes always have some initial effect

    it will take time before i can safely establish

    whether there is anything worthwhile to report

    either in regards to the above mentioned changes

    or any new -not already dealt with- Keywords. 

    I estimate around end Dec 14 should be adequate time

     (provided i am still …above ground! Lol!)

                             Jan 2015

      I have been very hard throughout December

              and have a Lot of Material to Publish

              including New…ish Keywords.

        The Principles of Management and Control are the Same

                          Management and Control as

                     * Boosting of General Immunity

                     * Friendly Skin Flora Promotion and Protection

                     * ‘Live Nutrient’ Providing Diet

                     * Hygiene and Choice of Treatment/s

                       (Natural or Chemical – Internal or External )           

                                                  *

 * The Longer the Duration and Severity of Skin Corrosion

   the Longer it takes for the Skin to Heal

   Thus, creating Perpetual Wounds and Vulnerability

    Attracting  Continual or Cyclic attacks 

    Weekening ability of fast or complee healing

    giving the impression of never healing.    

    Natural Deterrents Facilitating Fast Healing can Help

                 .

  *  Once an Area is totally clear, any treatment

      i.e killing, healing, or preventative should be stopped

      especially if containing chemical elements

      (such as Talc powders containing Aluminium)

     to allow Balance and Restoration

     of Natural Defence and Beneficial Flora

      unless vulnerable to Recurrent attacks, in which case

     a Natural harmless deterrent would be preferable.

.

  * A Good Diet is Comprised of Three Equally Important Parts

   1) Providing Abundance of Bio-available Live Nutrients

   2) Preservation of Live Nutrients where Cooking is required

   3) Exclusion of All Burdening and Disturbance creating Ingredients

       such as either

   a) Foods Processed, Altered and Devitalised

   b) Containing Chemical, Artificial Substances.

.

 * A Sign of Yeast Dying on Impact Externally

    after application of some substances

    is often the resulting Burning and/or Bubbles

   -excluding Acidophilus which acts in a Slow but Painless way.

.

* Breathable Cottons are Best for Skin Contact

  such as Underwear, Vests, Singlets etc.

  Synthetics appear to cause activity and intensify Itching

.

              * A Natural Firm Bristle Bamboo Body Brush

                          Body Brush MD

      Is Ideal for Exfoliating Dead Brown Malassezia Sticky Film

       I recently purchased two – the soft bristle one is useless

                           the Firm Bristle is Perfect!

                            It can also relieve Itching

                      and remove active Malassezia grit.

              A long handle is helpful for difficult to reach areas.

          A Medium handle as above gives a  better grip and angle

                      for vigorous more effective brushing.

                                 I use it on Dry skin

            and intend to purchase one for Bath Scrubbing 

           although  an Old rough/coarse Face Cloth is excellent

Malassezia – and Body Hydration (PT 2)

               

          * READERS’ QUESTIONS & KEYWORDS *

      Malassezia Burning Fire                                                      

                         Due to Necessity in more recent times

                       and having to Obey my Body’s Indications

                 of its alternating needs, i have been able to observe

                       distinct variations in Malassezia behaviour

           and effect on the Body, during implemented changes of Diet.

.

                           I have a Dedicated Earlier Entry

         regarding my observations, but it roughly works like this:

                When i am on a Highly Hydrating Diet

          -On Belief and Repeated Confirmation of Benefits-

            Malassezia appears to definitely be more Active

          but with much Less Punishing Effects on the Skin

         while when on a Less Hydrating – More Solid Diet

             of Lightly Steamed Vegetables, thus providing

        Considerably Reduced Hydration (and ‘live’ nutrients)

                        Malassezia activity and presence

                      appears to be Reduced temporarily

            but then Turned into an Unbearably Increased

                     Corrosive –Fire like– Burning and Itch

           penetrating and interrupting even the deeper sleep

        and /or waking up to either Acid like Fluid filled Bubbles

                    or some extensive Red-Burn-like areas

            such as the Under Breast nasty Surprise incident.

                                 (See Related Entry)

                                                ~

                       HOW IS the BODY HYDRATED

         Hydration MD

                 1) ACTIVE – CONSTRUCTIVE HYDRATION 

                                  a) Production 

                                  b) Content

                                of Body Fluids

                                     

                     2) ACTIVE – ELIMINATIVE 

                              Detoxification

                          Can be Best achieved

             with a Nutrient Rich Organic Water Content

                  in Fresh Raw Fruit and Vegetables

             .

                               Active Hydration    

                                   Approve Positive

                Provides and Satisfies the Body Requirements

                 for Building and Nutrient enriched Hydration

              in the Form of Fresh Raw Fruits and Vegetables.

                                                        .

                               Passive or Neutral

                   Goes through the digestive system

              offering little else but some essential water

            to partially cover some eliminative processes

            in the Form of Water plus any externally added       

        substances such as in Teas, Processed Fruit extracts

                      or absorbed in Cooked Foods.

  .

                Some may dispute this – I cannot prove it

                     Only the Body can speak for Itself

                              to those able to ‘listen’…

               Regular Consumers of Fresh Raw Foods

      would know the difference and what i am talking about…

  .

           Tap Water is only One part of Body Hydration

                      Indispensable and Necessary

                    but Not as Valuable and Important

                   as the Nutrient Rich Water Content

                   of Fresh Raw Fruit and Vegetables

                      whether eaten whole or juiced.

    (Most Fruits and Veggies are 80% – 95% Water Content )

                  * Boiled, Fried, Roasted Vegetables 

                            Jam and Marmalades

                          Do Not Retain Nutrients

              and are Neither Nutritious Nor Hydrating.

                Any water content remaining or absorbed

         during such above processing is inferior in quality

                   and does Not Qualify as Hydrating.

.

              The Proof is in the Thirst or Hunger Signals

                  produced despite their consumption.

                    The Hydration Malassezia Fears

       Malassezia Water Fear

           The One Type of Hydration Malassezia Fears

     is Paradoxically… Warm Water!… used to Scrub it Off!

        It is the most effective way of destroying it on the Skin

                                                           .

   And to answer the Question about Pityrosporum and Hydration:

         Hydration is Beneficial to and Not against Malassezia

                                           But

                      Indispensable for the Body 

  Malassezia and Body Hydration MD

.

               Dehydrating the Body will only cause harm to It

                        with possible ‘chain’ consequences

        but will Not harm Malassezia more than a brief slow down.

            It will Relocate in areas it can find needed humidity

                         and the Consequences will be

                        Intolerable Pain and Discomfort

     .

                                Plain Warm Water

                   to Wash and Scrub it off Scalp* or Skin

                          in the Early /Activity stage

                       is the Bad One for Malassezia

             and one to implement without harm to the Body

                                                     *

                       My Personal View of Body Hydration

                       is Consisting of Two Different Types:

                       One of an Active Double Operation

                            and One Passive  or  Neutral

   .

                      1-1) ACTIVE – CONSTRUCTIVE* 

                                            As in

                       A) Production of Body Fluids

                       B) Content of Body Fluids                                                                    

                        1-2) ACTIVE – ELIMINATIVE 

                                           As in 

                                    Detoxification                                                                           

                         2) PASSIVE – NEUTRAL

           As Fluids Passing through the digestive system

           with minimal constructive or eliminative utilisation

                             (Details and Charts below)

  .

             There are also several External – Environmental

                        Types of Hydration / Humidity

                and they are ALL Favourable to Malassezia

                Internal Body and External Environmental

                                 except for One!

                                           ~

  Hydration as Humidity

            *1-  External – Environmental 

    – Pools, Pool Showers, Bathrooms, Baths and Showers

            and Any Water Collecting Areas or Vessels.

           *2- Environmental in Relation to Its Living

 – Our Body and All its ‘Variations of Fluids  and Humidity’ Areas

                      – Liquid, Humidity, Perspiration etc.                                                           

                    Hydration as Fluids

            *3- Internal Body Hydration

               – As Internal Body Fluid Conditions 

         All these Conditions are Favourable to Malassezia.

   .

        How Important is Hydration for the Body

                 Looking at some Charts Below

            it becomes Obvious that for the Body

                               in One Word

                    HYDRATION means LIFE!

                  FAW MD 2

    Take a Look what it means for Each Vital Organ of the Body!

FAW MD 3R

FAW MD 4

          Percentages provided in the Charts above and below

             vary a little and may not be completely accurate

               but  are a good indication of the Real Levels

          and how much ‘water’ our Body needs to Survive.

FAW MD 1

70% of the Body as a Total, is Water 

85% of the Blood content, is water

80% of the Brain content, is water

75% of the Muscles mass is water

90% of the Cells is water

              Not to mention that Water is also needed for

* Detoxification/* Production of Body Fluids

       such as

– Digestive Juices/– Hormones/– Lung Hydrating

  for elasticity and efficient functioning of clearing dust

  and other particles breathed in

– Mucous production for Protecting

– Nostrils

– Mouth

– Eyes/Eyelids

– Lungs

– Digestive and Urinary Tracts

– Genitals

 >Male head of Penis, Foreskin –  Female Vigina, clitoris)

– Urethra

– Anus

          Therefore, depriving the Body from the Benefits

                              of ample Hydration

                  Would Be Detrimental for the Body

           With Practically NO ILL Effect on Malassezia.   

             Body Hydration MD

  Somehow, i dont think that “Water” is just …Tap Water…

Malassezia ~ Candida – Are they the same?

           

    * READERS’ QUESTIONS & KEYWORDS *

                                     *                    

  * Malassezia – Candida – Are they the same *

                                      *

    Candida Malassezia comparison MD

                                      *

     Q1: * is candida and malassezia the same thing *

         Candida wiki MD 1

                      I have not found anywhere so far any Reference

                                         of  Candida Species

                       Being or listed as part of the Malassezia Species

                                       Neither any Malassezia  

                         Being or listed as part of the Candida Species.

Malassezia Images MD

                   

                          Therefore, for now i will assume that

                                    Malassezia and Candida

                                         Are Not the Same.

        Nevertheless, they Share Many Common Characteristics

Candida Malassezia Comparison MD

         Candida – Malassezia Shared Common Similarities

Candida Albicans MD

  1- General Similarities

* Candida genus include many different Species

* It is Part of the Commensal Human Microflora

* It is a Dimorphic Fungus

* Grows Both as a Yeast or Fungus

* Develops Hyphae (Spores, Pseudohyphae, Hyphae)

* Multiplies by Asexual i.e. Cloning and Hyphae Reproduction

* It turns into Opportunistic Pathogen to Low Immunity Hosts

* Capable of Invading Any Site of the Human Body

* Forms a Biofilm

  (a Self-produced Matrix also referred to as Slime *)

* Causes Diseases

  (depending on Medium and Body area of affliction)

.

   2- Symptoms Similarities

– Rush, Redness, Inflammation

– Itching, Burning, Discharge, Odour etc.

.

         3- Body Area – Ailments Similarities

 * Skin – Cutaneous Candidiasis

– Skin, Creases, Folds,

– Torso (Upper and Middle Body)

– Under Breasts

– Genitals, Groin, Buttocks,

– Hair Follicles

– Other Skin areas

* Mouth Thrush

* Throat – Esophageal Candidiasis

* Blood  – Fungemia

  Candidemia – (Fungemia causes Mortality)

* Genitals/– Penis, Vagina, Anus, Diaper Rash in Babies

* Intestines – Gastrointestinal Tract

* Nails – Onychomycosis (Nail plates)

.

        4- Contributing Causes Similarities

– Low Immunity/- Illness (AIDS, Cancer, Diabetes etc)

– Stress

– Antibiotics

– Steroids, including HRT

– Humidity/ Moisture

–  Warmth/Temperature

– Use of Chemicals / Detergents / Cosmetics, etc

– Sugars, Alcohol

– Poor Nutrition

  (and more)

.

 5- Treatments Similarities

Candida treatments are the same as for Malassezia

 with also Temporary Results and Recurrence

                                   * 

Candida Albicans MD

                                      Notes:

         1- Slime * I assume it is the equivalent of the Malassezia GSL

  or ‘Greyish Sticky Layer’ as i had named it back then

  not knowing any other name, and referring to in recent times

  as ‘Orange-Gray Liquid’ – ‘Amniotic Fluid like’ – or ‘Carrier’.

.

   2- I have Not found so far any reference regarding

  Candida and OIL Requirement for Reproduction

               as is the case with Malassezia.

  I vaguely recollect having read somewhere

  Candida is Not requiring Oil for Proliferation

                       and IF that is correct,

  then this is One point of difference between them.

.

   3- IF i have understood the medical jargon correctly, and

 IF the information is correct and reliable

 some studies of oils have showing a slow down / inhibiting

 effect on Candida virulence – at least on the Petri dish…

( Difference between Petri Dish and Body is that the former

  is a restricted, limited environment where the Yeast/Fungus

  is tested under controlled conditions, whereas the Body

  is its Familiar, Dynamic changing environment

  where it can escape, adapt, or fight and survive. 

  Otherwise the Petri Dish findings would have offered

  Fixed Solutions to the problems these creatures present…)

.

    4- Since Laboratory Research 

       -and my Personal Experiences-

                 have shown that 

        Oils Promote Growth of Malassezia

  i assume it would be wise for each individual

          to be certain about

  Which Type of Yeast they are Dealing with

  in Regards to Using Oils for Treatment

  and be mindful of the difference between

         a Petri Dish in a Laboratory

  and the Entire Dynamic Complexity of a Body

  and presence of Other Friendly or Hostile Flora.

.

    5- The above Lists and Information are Compiled Solely

  from Concise, Brief Candida Yeasts Research

  and Not on any Personal Experience or Assessments

  as is the case with the Malassezia Entries

  that are based on Long term Personal Experiences,

  Experimentations and Repeated Pattern Observations.

.

     6- The Lists  and Information above are Only to Illustrate

   a number of Malassezia and Candida

   similar to identical characteristics they present 

   as both being Yeast /Fungus Species.

                                      *       

                             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.

                     Pelvic – Joint Inflammation

The Photos Below show the Pelvic and Spinal interconnected

‘cabling’ System of Nerve, Arteries, Blood Vessels, Muscles etc

PELVIC-JOINT INFLAMMATION

   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 *

        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

           

       * READERS’ QUESTIONS & KEYWORDS *

            Malassezia Q&A's MD 

                             *

       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

                 (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.

             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 ~ How Fast can it Spread

                   * K1: * how fast does malassezia spread *

                                                       *

                         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.

Malassezia ~ To and From the Pool

                             K1: * malassezia furfur infection

                    can you swim in a pool with this infections *

                                                     *      

                                     I hope the Reader

            Malassezia Swimming Pool

       Has not been standing on the Podium in their Swimsuit

               while waiting for the answer to their question

.

I was a Pool Swimmer for over 12 years soaking in Chlorinated water

for a full hour every single morning of the week – including weekends

                     at a brutal 5.30’ am each morning.

It was not long before chlorine was the prominent smell on my Body

never able to wash it off despite long hot scrub showers afterwards.

Chlorine weakened the Strength and the Colour of All types of hair

on my Body, such as Eyebrows, Underarms and Legs.

Wearing two Swimming Caps i.e one Lycra plus one Silicone

         helped protect my Scalp Hair from equal damage

                   but Never did anything to Malassezia.

              During those times its worse manifestation

  was on several of my Toes throughout the Entire Decade

  Malassezia Toe

        resulting in losing the left Big Toe Nail several times

   and getting so swollen and painful that often i could not walk

                 and would hobble my way to the pool.

 Walking in Seawater much later on, brought tremendous relief

      and eventual healing until i could not do that anymore

      Sea walk

and so trialled first the YAM and eventually only Acidophilus Mix.

.

I remember Three Consistent Characteristic Elements

i had noticed on other Swimmers throughout my Pool years

which today i can recognise as signs of Malassezia presence:

.

1-) The Strong Grayish Orange Colour of the Pool Scum 

                accumulated at the edge of the water

    Malassezia -pool scum

      which always had me wondering whether the Chlorine

                     was actually doing anything to it

                 as it never seemed to clean or dissolve 

                 and what would it mean for our Bodies?….

2-) Many of the Elderly people – and often some young ones

              when they were in the water were giving off

               a strong Ashy smell which i secretly called

   Ash MD

                                ‘The smell of Death’

                      because my head was telling me

                    it was the smell of their dead cells…

                                I was not too wrong…

    Later on i smelled it on my Body, especially in the initial stages

            of its outbreak, when my scalp was infected heavily

                           and was losing my hair fast.

.

3-) Many Swimmers, from very young to very old seemed to have

     all sorts of strange Bumps or Sores on their Bodies

     hard to tell whether they were Acne, Mosquito Bites, Eczema,

      Skin Ulcers, Burns, Allergies or Accidental Cuts, etc

             until i had started recognising some of them

                         looking very similar to mine

         but i still did not know at the time what mine were

    and often wondering whether we were getting something 

      from the built up of Orange Scum – or the Pool Showers.

.

    I can see Now how Long term Skin Exposure to Chlorine

                may have caused Skin Flora Imbalance

thus encouraging Malassezia growth on some swimmers skins.

.

Chronic exposure to Chlorine does not appear to have any detrimental

effect on Malassezia, it barrows under the skin deep into the hair follicles

    and waits until it is all over, or retreats into the Internal areas

                      such as Genitals and Anal Canal.

   .

                                  One may ask

                 ‘Can People Infect the Pool?’

                 ‘Can People get Infected in the Pool?’

               I have no scientific back up for this answer

               since Malassezia being a part of Natural Body Flora

would not be looked for – or considered as a Pool infecting threat

and Pools are usually tested for other known Pathogenic nasties.

My Personal assessment, based on the above observations 

                         is Yes to Both questions

           and the Orange Scam is a supporting indication.

        The effect though on each Individual, would depend

 on the General state of Immunity and Other Contributing factors

 .

                   And answering the original Question

      *can you swim in a pool with this infections*                                                             

                    Based on all said above

Yes, you Can and it is Really a matter of Personal Choice

such as if there is a Good Reason like Health, Exercise, etc

         as swimming is one of the Best ways for that purpose

 but may not be Beneficial for the Skin in the Long Term

    or if Malassezia is already causing too much trouble

         one may have to assess Necessity of Swim

        i.e whether just a Little Splash for Pleasure

               or a Health and Fitness Exercise

     Free

against the extend and severity of Malassezia trouble.

            I know if i could i would have continued swimming

                   regardless Malassezia  considerations.

Malassezia ~ Considerations…

              K1: * will high progesterone cause Malassezia *

     Malassezia and Progesterone

  

I don’t think Progesterone ‘causes’ Malassezia as such.

Malassezia exists naturally on several areas on the Body.

Progesterone may cause it to Proliferate or exacerbate

                           an existing condition.

.

There was a brief period during which my GP prescribed

Natural Progesterone obtained from Compounding Chemists.

I cannot tell with absolute certainty Progesterone was responsible

for causing flair up symptoms as at  the time i was on Antibiotics

and was trying anything on earth to give my body a boost

to help coping with A TB Illness and the  lethal Antibiotic toxicity.

Malassezia back then was a camouflaged undiscovered evil

and its effects were masked and bundled up with all other

as antibiotics afflictions. Looking back though and recalling

time- events- symptoms, start/stops and flair ups taking place
