*Malassezia ~ Fermented Foods Trial Results*
The Fermented Foods Trial
Has Regrettably come to an end.
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
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.
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!
* 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…
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
and illustrate how and why Kidney inflammation can affect
Pelvic and Spinal area and Vice Versa.

It is easy to see how inflammation in the Kidneys
can cause Lower and Middle Back Pain, Stiffness
Pelvic inflammation and restricted painful mobility.
