WELCOME TO MALASSEZIA HEALTH QUEST

 

    Almost There!??? 

Almost There - MQ
   My Primary Focus over the last Couple of Years has been
on Boosting, Restoring and Maintaining My Immune System
to the Best Level Possible – and bring it to a point where it can

1- Regain Adequate Control of Malassezia
unassisted by chemicals or natural remedies and elaborate maintenance
2- Reduce Malassezia Presence and Activity, and
3- Revert Malassezia Pathogenic Destructive Behaviour
back to its Naturally Occurring ‘Commensal Body Flora’ state

   I am Almost There!

    Yeiii bowdownthumps up

Using Only Minimal Acidophilus Aid
Gradually Reducing it to None
From 6-8 Capsules per 24 hours
Down to Only 1/2 – 1 capsule in 48 hours 

Currently and for the Past Three Weeks
For the First Time Ever for That Long
         In nearly 6 years -MQ
All Areas Are: Lesion – Bump – Scratch Free
      Including Nicely Healed Foot
       ~ Zero Protection Applied ~

            bowdown 2 2 thumps uphoorey

I am Not claiming any Miraculous Permanent Cure!

Treating it as a Temporary Reprieve
with no illusions the Battle is over – yet!
Rather as the Best State and Condition Achieved this far
and Always aware of Possible Relapses
and on the Lookout on Surprise Night attacks
but hopefully as time goes by – Less and Less of either…

         This Entry is my…

Before i go -MQ

From before Sunrise until Sundown into the Night
I have worked very hard – and for very long
Eating my Meals with one hand -Typing with the other
During  weekends and holidays
With Broken Bones, Fevers and Chills
Through Tears, sobs, moans and groans
Through Unrelenting Agonising Pain and Discomfort
Always Carrying on… often falling asleep on the keyboard
but Never stopping …ever…

I am Totally Worn out and in desperate Need 
 for a Long deserved Break
Temporary or Permanent – Not sure at this stage
I  have still plenty to contribute 

And I May –or May Not– Return later on…

There is  Plenty to Read in my Three Blogs
and while Resting i may try – No Promise- to Improve
connectivity of Entries by inserting ‘Related Entries’ Links.

Malassezia – Almost There!???

(Update  26 Dec 2015)

New ‘Acidophilus in Lung’ Experiment

Acidophilus in Lung Experiment -MQ

It is Summer in this part of the world.
This means high temperatures, strong winds and a lot of dust
especially since it has not rained for a while or only lightly.
Additionally, excavations for a multi-level building
only a block away and some upsetting family events
and my Lungs started to Bleed, day and night for 3 weeks
from Mid November to near mid December with no signs of stopping.

It was not so much the dust in the air that caused the bleeding
but what  was probably in it that was inhaled.
There was also a chance it might have been Malassezia attack
but i had no way of telling with certainty, though no doubt
it may have indirectly contributed to the problem
since Blood, Inflammation and Humidity
are highly attracting it elements.

I had not used any Acidophilus anywhere on my body
as i mentioned in the earlier posted Entry “ Almost There?”
for well over Four Months, and considered starting again
but wondering how to apply it in such a way
in order to directly affect the Lungs.
Inhaling it somehow seemed to be the best way
offering a better chance to reach faster and directly
but was not too sure – and wary of any possible adverse consequences.
Having no other solution available and knowing that loss of blood
for so long was highly detrimental in many other ways
and not having had a single night’s uninterrupted bloodless sleep,
i decided to give it a try, watch and assess results.

I prepared a solution of 30ml warm water around 35C
and added the contents of 1 Acidophilus capsule.
I Poured some on my hand and splashed it on my Nostrils
Inhaling vigorously with Both nostrils then closing each
and inhaling hard with the other forcing some mix to go down.
( I used only 1 Acidophilus Capsule Mix per day)

Day 1:
Keeping the solution warm – no higher than 35 C
throughout the day, i Repeated Inhaling it in frequent
intervals and just before going to bed
(approximately 6-8 times throughout the day)
No change – Bleeding continued during night and next day.

Day 2:
Repeated same number of times as in Day1.
Noticeable Reduction in Blood Output during the Day
and only twice waking up at night

Day 3:
Reduced Inhaling mix to only 4 times
(including before going to bed)
Blood output decreased further to just pink sputum
–and woke up at night only once

 Day 4
Reduced Inhaling mix to only 3 times
Blood Stopped Completely
First uninterrupted Night Sleep

Day 5:
Reduced Inhaling mix to only Morning and Bedtime

Day 6:
Also Morning and Bedtime – then Stopped Completely
No Blood ever since, good uninterrupted bloodless sleeps.
Acidophilus to the rescue once more!

The Acidophilus i used was a new type i had not used before                                                                                                ‘Faulding Probiotic for Women’
(Can also be used by Men – it is the Bacteria that count!)

Acidophilus F-MQ

Acidophilus F1-MQ

Acidophilus F2-MQ

Having said that, i would like to repeat and clarify,
as i have done in ‘Product and Probiotic Warning’ Entries
that ALL Probiotics Brands and Variations i have tried over time
and some i had been using out of necessity, including the above,
produce side effects – also confirmed by my man as well.
This is due to filling/encapsulating ingredients contained
as well as chemicals used for the Snap Freeze processing,
in order not to need refrigeration and keep bacteria alive.
Most Companies list Active ingredients only
i.e Types of Bacteria (as image 1 above)
but not Inactive, such as fillers, preservatives etc.
Some, list substances that are Not included (Free From)
due to their allergenic qualities, (as image 2 above)
but not All of the Included – likely to affect different individuals.

Through Google searches i found different elements and methods
used in Snap freezing Process of Acidophilus/Probiotic Products
but cannot find specific info of what each Type or Brand contains.
Fauldings is one company providing a long list of contents
of all its Different types of products- hard one to locate – but again
not All of the contents or in regards to Freeze Drying Processing .

Below some Chemicals used during Processing

Probiotic Freeze Dry 1- MQ

I would suggest, Users keeping a vigilant observation
of any untoward symptoms – testing on and off for some time
and Stop Use when an area is Cleared.
Some of the Symptoms my Man and I have observed repeatedly
throughout periods of On and Off Usage include:
Migraines, Kidney Pains/burning, Fluid Retention,
Arthritic Joint and Bone Pains.
Low Dosage and Infrequent usage – the milder the symptoms
Higher Dosage and /or Frequent usage – more Severe Symptoms.
Usually they all clear within a few days but take much longer
if higher dosages or frequent usage especially when taken orally.

Severity and Necessity at times have dictated my course of action
while i have endeavoured to minimise effects
by External only application and Internally only in Vagina.
In recent times having finally managed to tame down
the Malassezia menace, i had been using
the Acidophilus /water Mix 3 times Daily,
to gradually only Once Daily before Bedtimes.
Currently i have not used any at all for More than 4 Months.

I clean the V walls with a Clean warm water dabbed Cotton wad
and then wipe with a Dry Cotton Wad to absorb away humidity.
So far this has guaranteed a quiet non-incident night
and no nasty surprises in the morning but i am always vigilant
and never skip routine no matter how tired or sleepy.
I have also found that Thick -moisture absorbent- Menstrual Pads
help deter Malassezia from settling in the external area.
(This part belongs to Malassezia and Genital Treatments category
and not to the ‘Lung and Acidophilus’ but i have no much energy
nowadays for the effort it takes to update all i would like to
and since many visitors have problems in several areas
i thought it would be better to include this info rather than not)

(Feb 16:  Repeated Experiment once again a few weeks back
after another Incident and worked  again and faster than before)

 ‘Targeting Intestinal Brooming’ Diet Results 

Malassezia Intestinal Brooming Diet -MQ

                      K1- “diet for malissezia”

I am Always cautious in declaring Results as Positive or Negative
always allowing enough testing time, observing closely
and checking while maintaining consistency of conditions
for certainty and more reliable results.

During the Past Year i have been trialling
what was intended to be a Three Month Testing of a
New “Targeting Intestinal Brooming” Diet Experiment.

For Diet Experiment Entries, see :

 144- Malassezia-Best Ways to Reduce in the Intestines P1                                             145- Malassezia-Best Ways to Reduce in the Intestines P2

*

Some of the Benefits of this Diet

Intestinal Brooming Diet -MQ

High, Bio-available, Sustaining, Healing Nutrition
• Rich in Vitamins, Minerals, Enzymes and Omega Fatty Acids 
• Highly Hydrating
• High Anti-inflammatory 
• Highly Detoxifying
• Highly Diuretic 
• Balanced Acidity -Alkalinity     
• Light to the Kidneys, Liver and Digestion
• High Natural Unprocessed Fibre
• Promoting Intestinal Elimination
• Brooming and General Intestinal Cleansing

The Five Main Objectives of this Diet
1- Fortify Immunity
2- Increase Nutritional Elements
3- Increase Fibre
4- Test killing effect -if any- of Curcumin
5- Broom and Reduce Malassezia Presence and Activity in the Colon

Steady Results Observed during the 11 Month Trial
Minus Side: (based on the daily quantity I am able to consume)
1-Low in Protein and Vitamin D – (1*)
2- Reduced Hydration compared to my  ‘All Raw Fruit/Veggie’ Regular
 Corrected by Adding Raw Fruit/Veggies in Second Meal
 Dropping Sunflower Seeds
due to indications of been treated with chemicals
producing allergenic symptoms to Both Myself and Husband.
Replaced (testing) Minimal quantity of Pine nuts.

(1*) My Diet is Personalised to my Needs and Condition 
and Adapted to provide Optimal Benefits to my Own Body 
– Structured around and Restricted by Limitations and Intolerances 
Imposed as a Result of a Decade Long Term Antibiotic Treatment.
It is therefore Not Recommended for Long term implementation
but rather as a Guide of elements that can help Improve
Immunity and Control of the Malassezia Problem.

On the other hand: Adopting only Some of this Diet Elements
while Retaining Detrimental to general Health and Immunity
as well as Conducive to Malassezia Proliferation ones
Will Not prove as Effective or May Not work at All

Positives:
1- Hair and Nails (still) Growing – No breaks, no Slowing
Previously growth ended with end of Mango Season
2- Restoration of Hair Follicles
Hair growing anew in some previously bare areas
Not desirable but an indisputable sign of health
3- Overall Reduction of Presence and Activity
Strong Indication of Overall fluctuating Reduction
of Both, Yeast Presence and Activity
4- More frequent ‘Die Off’ recurrences
5- Regular frequent Elimination
Fewer enemas needed –if at all
6- Les Intestinal Gas and Bloating
7- Less and fewer incidents of Leg Jerking
8- More Quiet Restful Sleep at Night                                                                                      (finally back to a blessed normal 8 hours!)
9- Significant Reduction of Protective Substances
10- Less Regular Protective Maintenance
(Daily Cleanliness and General Hygiene remain Normal)

The Curcumin Testing:

Curcumin Extraction Methods

Consideration 1
Given the Chemical Extraction Solvents and Treatment Processes
of Commercial Curcumin,i do not believe for a moment that
arriving at destination point it is anything else but Absolutely Useless!
My Personal opinion and no hell or heaven can persuade me otherwise.

Consideration 2
The Negative impact on the Body of residue Chemical Solvents.

Consideration 3
* Quality, Potency and Bio-availability of Capsules.

There are many elements that can potentially render Curcumin’s
‘active’ therapeutic qualities and bioavailability ineffective

Bioavailability of Curcumin -MQ

In its Natural Bio-available state it is easier for the Body to utilise
and small quantity or potency can be far more effective
than something chemically processed that the body cannot utilise.
Nevertheless, for my Purposes i prefer the ‘Live Thing’
the way Nature provides it as part of … Raw unsalted Pumpkin Seeds!

(They too most likely are treated with some devils but at least they are
not Boiled, Cooked and turned upside down and ‘hung to dry! Lol! 🙂 )

               My Observations:
Several times throughout the 11 Month trial
i have come pretty-pretty close to declaring that it appears to Kill.
Guessing really by supporting follow  ‘Die Off’ signs
-and i am not talking about the strong Fishy smell of Pumpkin seeds
owed to their high content of its Beneficial Omega Oils.
As frequently though as i have arrived at this conclusion
i have found a day or two later those indications are in question.
Hard also to differentiate whether and when it is due
to the Overall High Fibre Brooming Intestinal Effect
or additionally to the Pumpkin Seed Curcumin content.
So, the closest and more reliable conclusion i have arrived at, so far
and can declare, is: It Seems to Be … Helpful!… 😀
I Cannot at this point fully Commit, either way, positive or negative
to anything more honest and specific than that.

Regarding the Brooming Diet Effect on Malassezia Cleansing 
Resulting in Long-hours of Peace and Quiet
and Gradual – Steady Reduction of Presence and Activity
I have No doubt whatsoever it has prooved Successful. 
and determined to Continue on – for as long as it Serves its Purpose.

Malassezia: Chilli Hot Horror? – Flowers in the Field?

Malassezia and Chilli -MQ

                                               K1

       Chillippeps -MQ

When i asked Peppers of all kinds

Peppers

Yellow, Green, Red – Hot or Mild
-including Chilli Powder-
if they Could Kill Malassezia
They all invariably Looked at me like this

Horrified Peppers -MQ

Need i say more???…..

K2- “killing malassezia with natural food”

I have not found Any Foods, Herbs or Supplements
                 Killing Yeast Directly
or Any immediate Noticeable Change
nor Signs of Steady, Sustainable Changes

I have noticed some marked Differences
in Yeast Activity -in Overall Diet Quality,
such as

1- High or Low Hydrating Quality of Foods
2- Degree of Digestibility  (1)
3- Adequate amount of Fibre

(1) Depending on 
a) Type of Ingredients (2) 
b) Way of Processing  and Cooking (3) 
c) Presence of Nutrients
– most importantly Live Enzymes Retained

              (2) For Foods & Conditions Contributing to Yeast Proliferation                                                              See Related Entries in  Malassezia Daily   
             (3) Put Simply… Best if Food is Not Dead!
                  Meathead                            

       Can one Kill what is …already Dead? 🙂

I have noticed Temporary Activity and Reduction
after Cleansing the Colon area
or Applying Acidophilus Topically Externally.

(Due to the encapsulating agents causing me Headaches
i have been unable to take Acidophilus Orally long enough
to adequately observe and assess any Internal
Substantial, Sustained effect.)

Take a Moment to Laugh -MQ

Q1- “very tiny black thing comes in urine what is it”

                Yep!… good question! what is it?

Q2- “is yeast morfellona”
Morfellona??? …A Medieval witch? … or heroine?…

K1- “the skin on my pubic area feels like its crawling”                                       Any skin, in any area ‘feels like crawling’ when it hears the word

                                    Malassezia22_yikes

K2- “genital sores that are purple and looks like flowers”

                      A Forbidden Garden? TOC

OK, I have a Little Devil in Me and i m heading ‘down’ …fast

Little Dark Devil -MQ

None of the above is a laughing matter – i know first hand
but seeing the funny side of things helps coping with the dreary.

                            So Let’s get some Help -MQ

Q1- “very tiny black thing comes in urine what is it”
Very hard to tell without viewing the very tiny black thing
and even if visible to the naked eye it would likely require
a Microscope and an Expert to tell.
I would take a Photo if possible, transfer it to the Computer
and Zoom it to see if there are any clues.

Q2- “is yeast morfellona”
May we assume this was typed on an iPhone
and meant to be Morgellons?
Well – No!- Yeast is Not Morgellons
– if one could tell what exactly Morgellons is-
but many symptoms ascribed to it are similar
if not identical to ones produced by Malassezia.

K1- “the skin on my pubic area feels like its crawling”
Crawiling is usually felt when Malassezia develops Hyphae
Often it digs into that place and starts drawing blood
and multiplying – but sometimes it just dries and dies.

K2- “genital sores that are purple and looks like flowers”
Not quite a desired kind of Flower arrangement…Lol!
Yes, it is several Blood Bubbles of incubating Malassezia
forming a Cluster which with an artistic imagination
can look like a Flower but with the potential to develop
open up and turn into Burning Fire…

Malassezia: Chilli Hot Horror – Flowers in the Field?

Quick YES – NO Answers to Readers’ Questions

Malassezia Q & As -MQ    
A Brief Addressing of Previously Presented Issues

Q1- “can you get pityrosporum on your lips”
Q2- “crawling sensation around the rim of my lips with bruising”
YES, also on Eyebrows, Eyelashes, Nostrils etc
Basically the Entire Body -not just isolated areas- is its Planet.
Samples collected and viewed under 2 types of Microscopes
Display its Presence in all Different Stages and Characteristics.

Q3- “what causes labia prickling”
Malassezia does
But this does Not Exclude Numerous Other Possible Causes.
Prickling sensation is felt when it starts to Dig into the Skin.
In the Yeast form Temporary Reddening and Pain may follow
with no other symptoms. In the Hyphal Form it creates Lesions
that unless interrupted they remain Active and Reproducing
for approximately four weeks.

Q4- “is scalp yeast infection contagious”
YES, but all depends on the Individual’s Immune System
whether it becomes a problem or not – considering that
Malassezia is Present at All times on All People’s Bodies
but kept under control by a Normal Immune System.

Q5- “is melassezia contagiuos to other dogs”
Q6- “is malassezia contagious between pets”
I cannot answer this question with certainty
I only assume and extrapolate it might be similar to humans
i e Depending on the Animal’s Immunity Strength

Q7- “morgellons symptoms do they include matted hair”
This Question can only be Answered by those
who Name their Symptoms and Condition as ‘Morgellons’.
Morgellons -so far-is Not Medically Recognised 
either as a Cause or Condition.
Malassezia causes Matted Hair
I Cut mine Regularly and Keep Short
to minimise Biofilm and Spore presence and accumulation.
I have written several Entries regarding Morgellons’
Possible Misdiagnosis or Connection with Malassezia
and Hair /Scalp Care in MB & MD Blogs

Q8- “why are parts of my vagina purple black”
Malassezia Symptom and Possible Cause
-Not excluding Other possibilities-
as it Burrows under the skin creating Blood Blisters
and drawing Blood for its Reproduction Requirements.

Q9-” is my trich due to Malassezia”
If by ‘Trich’ Reader means Trichotillomania
-What a Confusing term!- 😦
Malassezia is Considered to Cause or Contribute to it
as it causes Burning and Itching and a strong Urge to Pull the Hair
offering a sense of relief, something i experienced strongly
but briefly during a bad stage of Scalp Infestation
so i am only able to verify the Connection
but not to determine the Cause of Trichotillomania
as there have been other causes attributed to it
Of course when one goes to a Specialist with Malassezia
they come out with an ‘Its All in your Head/Nerves etc’ diagnosis
termed ‘Delusional Parasitosis’, so who knows… 
Trichotillomania, may be a similar victim of Specialist ignorance
but in this case i might be too in regards to it 
as i have not delved into any Scientific explanations about it.
I have written more and included info links about Trich
in the Parent MB and MD Blogs.

Q10-” is demodex slimy”
Q11-“can demodex leave scratch marks on skin”
I am not sure what are these questions specifically referring to
Q10- I am not sure what is the Reader specifically asking
-Slimy as having a Biofilm? – Slimy in itself ? – Slimy mess on Skin?
Demodex is not a Yeast and i don’t know if it creates Biofilm.
Some Photos on the Internet -if correctly diagnosed as Demodex-
indicate a local mass appearing as ‘Fatty’ or Slimy
but i have no personal experience on how it looks or feels.

Q11- Again, is the question referring to the equivalent of
Paper Scratch Marks of Malassezia – or General Scars?
From Internet Photos -if correctly diagnosed as Demodex-
the Bumps and Lesions appear similar
but i have No personal experience.
(More in Related earlies Demodex Entries)

Q12-“what does malasserzia feed on”
I have not found specific information regarding its ‘Food’
I have thought about this question a lot and in connection
with the only Information i have found in regards to it

Malassezia Composition1 MQ

The Purpose of Food /Feeding/Eating is to Build and Sustain a Body
– Specific to each creature. Creature ‘Eats’ – Body ‘Utilises’
If we Interpret the word ‘Uses’ as i have described above
then we can say it Requires these elements and the question then
is shifted to: How Does it Obtain them?
Many of the Questions asked by Readers can be answered
in a Number of Entries –Each dealing with the topic in Different ways
or from Different angles. That is why i have been saying that
if one is truly interested to know and not wanting quick shallow answers
has to devote time to Read through – Not ‘Scan’ through quickly…
This topic especially is one of them and so is the one below.

Q13- “foods that cause malasezzia yeasts”
I am not sure if any foods can ‘cause’ Malassezia
since it is Part of Natural Body Flora
but Some, such as Cooked Indigestible Fats, Refined Sugars, Alcohol
certainly contribute to its proliferation especially in combination with
other factors such as Constipation, Colon Congestion, Poor Fibre intake.
( More in Related Earlier Entries)

Q14-“can malassezia furfur affect the digestive system”
Although i have been Sceptical about its Survival in the Stomach
i have experienced a few incidents when my entire mouth has felt
coated with its specific strong smell and bitter-sour taste of its Biofilm
right down to the oesophagus and to a miserably sick stomach
that holds ‘slimy’ food for hours as if not knowing what to do with it.
As for the rest of the Digestive tract from the small to the large Intestines
and the Final part of the Internal Anal area, it thrives growing hyphae
and Utilising readily available Nutrients.
I don’t know how long or If it eventually survives the stomach juices
but for the rest of the digestive tract there is No Doubt in my mind
that Interferes and Robs, if not even Damaging the walls given a chance.
I have Published Sample Photos under Microscope showing hyphae
and Blood presence. (See Entries in Photo Analysis Category)

Q15- “where does malassezia come from”
    Lol!…   An Evil …Stork brings them of course 😀

Stork

It appears the Answer might be:
‘It is Practically Everywhere’

Malasseia Ubiquitous 1

Of course Not…  I announce mine especially – I just enjoy the Fun)

I intended ‘Quick YES – NO’ Answers but i found it impossible
due to the nature of some Questions to strictly do so.
I also intended to address only New Keywords or add new elements.
I find though that having already presented many Q Topics

throughout my Primary Blogs, this creates unnecessary extra work
so this is the end of addressing any Q Topic Repetitions.

Cells that work together to Rid the Body of Infection

Diet Health ad Immunity -MQ                                          “We all know that what we Eat 
                 Significantly affects our overall Health and Immunity,”
 “While there are other important regulators of immune system function,
                                     The role Vitamins play is significant.                                                        
             How this works on a molecular level is a growing field of study.”
                                                       Myung H. Kim

(Excerpt from: “Study finds Vitamin A directs immune cells to the intestines”)    

In earlier work Kim found that vitamin A also regulates the migration of T-cells.
This is not the only vitamin known to regulate the migration of immune cells.
Vitamin D has been shown to work in a similar way to guide immune cells
to the skin, Kim said. Within the immune system there are
Two Categories of Cells that work together to Rid the Body of Infection:
1- Innate immune cells, the innate lymphoid cells and
2- Leukocytes that are fast acting and immediately present to eliminate infection;
3- and adaptive immune cells, the T-cells and B-cells that arrive later,
     but are specific to the pathogen and more effective at killing or neutralizing it.
All innate immune cells are produced in the bone marrow,
but eventually populate other areas of the body.
Innate lymphoid cells, which include the group studied by Kim,
are present in barrier tissues.
While it is known that innate lymphoid cells are concentrated in the intestines,
it has not been known how these cells find their way there, Kim said.
Innate lymphoid cells first gather in the lymph nodes before traveling
to their final destination, and this is where retinoic acid (in vitamin A)
acts upon two of the three subsets destined for the intestines.
Kim and his team found that retinoic acid activates specific receptors
in the cells that act as homing devices for the intestines.
As the innate immune cells then travel through the circulatory system,
the receptors grab onto and bind to molecules in the intestines
and keep the cells in place, he said.
“It is important that these cells be concentrated in mucosal barrier tissues,
as opposed to scattered throughout the body, because these tissues are
the point of entry for many infections from bacteria, viruses and parasites,”
Kim said. “Now that we have established the system of migration
for these cells, we can play with it a little and see what changes
the behaviour and function of the cells.”

Malassezia-Antibiotics & Other Chemical Treatments

Malassezia Antibiotics and Chemicals

K1- “pityrosporum folliculitis treatment on forehead with Vaseline”
K2- “enzymes that eat Malassezia”
Q1- “can selsun gold shampoo kill fungal spores in skin and hair”
Q2- “does isoporpyl alcohol kill malasezzia”

Some of these Keywords i have already addressed in earlier Entries here
and All of them Several times and in Length in Both ‘Parent Blogs’
so i shall address them here only briefly.

K1- “pityrosporum folliculitis treatment on forehead with Vaseline”
Vaseline is not a suitable treatment for this particular purpose.

Re-Pertoleum Jelly- MQ

              Vaseline Being Petroleum jelly 
and Malassezia thriving in Grease and Jellies
it would classify as in the inappropriate use category.

K2- “enzymes that eat Malassezia”
I don’t know if there are any kind of Enzymes obtainable
other than the Digestive ones, which had No effect whatsoever
on Malassezia either Consuming Internally or Applying on Skin.

I initially got the idea they might work and to trial them
because pets lick themselves when they are wounded
and because … i too had tried the direct trick once! …
applying saliva on a small lesion and found some quick relief
-but not a clear indication saliva enzymes killed.
Back then i was desperate and prepared to try Anything
even if it could killed me… I am much wiser now…

Q1- “can selsun gold shampoo kill fungal spores in skin and hair”
NO- It can Not. I still use it once in a blue moon.
Among the Numerous ones i have trialled i have only found One
that appears to do so or does better than all others.
I have written in detail about Both of them in earlier Entries

Many Topics have been discussed or expanded
in the “Keyword – Questions” Categories, in this site 
and in  Malassezia Daily

Q2- “does isoporpyl alcohol kill malasezzia”
Not unless Malassezia is fully immersed in it.
I have written in detail about it in Both Malassezia Parent Blogs.

K3- “care after applied dettol to scrotum”
Ouch!…this must have hurt!…
Dettol is no good and most especially for this area.
More Details in Both Parent Blogs

K4- “monistat for parasites mites” 
K6- “malassezia by antibiotics”
Keyword K4 refers to parasite mites
But i shall address it here
a) because the Reader may be referring to Malassezia as parasites
in which case i must clarify that it is Not a Parasite as such
but Part of the Commensal Body Flora, and  
b) because Monistat is Prescribed for Yeast Infections
which makes it Relevant anyway.

Quick research into Monistat:

Monistat (Miconazole Nitrate) is an Azole antifungal

Monstat 1-MQ

I wonder why one should consult their Doctor /Pharmacist
before using it, if they have frequent vaginal infections
since it is Prescribed as a Treatment for Yeast Infections?…

Could it be because of this Statement below, regarding
increased risk by antibiotics, considering Monistat IS an Antibiotic?

Monstat 2-MQ

And this does not apply only to Vaginal Yeast Infections

Antibiotics and PityroReinfestation -MQ

I have already written in Details in Earlier Entries in Both Parent Blogs
about my Personal Experiences and Results regarding
the Azole Antifungals in their different types and uses 

………………………

Azole – Definition of Azole by Medical Dictionary:
A family of synthetic broad-spectrum antifungal antibiotics
–including ketoconazole, fluconazole, itraconazole.

(Many More – Not included above)

Adverse effects N&V, anorexia, rash, pruritus,
nonspecific liver enzymes, anemia, leukopenia,
thrombocytopenia, headache, etc
Drug interactions Plasma levels of azoles are by antacids,
H2-receptor antagonists, sucralfate, isoniazid, phenytoin, rifampin.
McGraw-Hill Concise Dictionary of Modern Medicine 
© 2002 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.

(The Two in Bold are TB medications)

………………………

K5-” toxic side effects of malassezia treatment”
I have written in Detail about All treatments i have used
Results and side effects throughout, several times and in All Blogs.
It would be impossible to put all this in one Entry here.

K6- “malassezia by antibiotics”
My Entire Story right from the Start Blog 1 some 6 years back
has been the Basis of the Effect of Long Term use of Antibiotics
Not Only in regards to Malassezia turning from
Harmless Commensal Flora to a Torturing Pathogen
but also the General Devastating Effects upon my Entire Body
and the Limited capabilities and Disjointed ways
it is now left to Operate with as a Result.
I am Paying a Price i had Never envisaged or Imagined possible
and the main Reason i have practically turned
into a Natural Health Evangelist type of Preacher
in the hope that my shared experiences and hard learning
might help informing and possibly saving others.

I shall repeat and conclude here saying:
All the Chemicals – Antifungals – Antibiotics
we Use for whatever Reasons or Causes, Internally or Externally,
have a Cumulative Effect on Our Body, Its Major and Minor
Organs and General Immunity Systems, i.e Different types
of Protective Systems – Internal and External.
NONE can have ANY Permanent Effect on Malassezia
due to its High Chances of Recurrence
while Adding to the Immune Imbalance.
Restoration of Immunity is the ONLY way to Permanent Cure
i.e Converting Malassezia back to a Commensal State
by suppressing its Proliferation and ability to grow to Hyphal Forms.
I have Proved it Can be done to a great Degree,
-Earlier Sample Photos compared to Recent ones, adequately indicate so-
but it is too late for me to achieve a complete reversal.
I strongly believe, Many people in better condition
and without major underlying illness can achieve that
if only willing and having the strength to apply and adhere
to Strict Discipline – Compared to a Continual battle
with the Potential to get worse under adverse circumstances.

Malassezia-Antibiotics and Other Chemical Treatments

Digging Holes in the Skin!

Malassezia Digging Holes-MQ

One Characteristic i have mentioned in Earlier Entries
is how Malassezia seems to lodge in an area persistently until it devastates it
and then it abandons it for quite some time –until … its next chosen time.
I have Speculated it might be that, that particular area does not provide
anymore the elements it needs for continuing its multiplication 
but one rather hard to confirm.

One Consequence i have mentioned in Earlier Entries, is of applying any
Deterrents -Chemical or Natural- that do not Kill it on Impact
thus allowing it to Relocate to a different area.
Whether its Relocation in the new area attracts New batches,
or some part of that particular batch Unaffected by treatment
manages to Reproduce and start a new cycle there, is Unclear to me. 
The Relocation though IS clear and fairly quick, usually to the closest
areas to where treatment was applied, if caught in the initial Mobile stages.
If already settled and solidified, depending on treatment, it dies off gradually
or creates a big -and often painful-mess. 
One good reason for acting Sooner rather than later. 

One Maintenance Rule i apply, also mentioned in Earlier Entries, is that
when i manage to clear an area -either by voluntary departure or consequence
of …war!- once i am sure, i reduce or cease application of deterrents/healers etc.
and allow the Skin to build its own Resistance – until the next round 😦
The same i apply to Less Vulnerable areas where i can feel Temporary Traffic
but usually not followed by trouble, i just wash the area with an old, rough 
face cloth and leave as is, without further protection.

Coming now to the Surprise of the Nasty built of an Overlooked situation:

Namely … the Holy Foot!… TOC

Whether it was the Characteristic or the Consequence or part of the Rule
i am not sure.  The story goes like this: For a few days i was fighting something
and had slightly raised temperature – this drew the yeast in the Genital area,
which prompted me to increase protection there.
As a Consequence it moved away. Then my Temperature went further up
and whatever it was, my Body cleared it and all was restored, including reduction
in protective measures and when i was sure it was all quiet i completely stopped.
Simultaneously though, i noticed after the recovery stage that there was 
systematic traffic under my Foot. Having never had any Lesion problems there, 
i thought it best to wash and leave it alone so that it won’t return back up 
to the privates or Relocate to more vulnerable or sensitive areas.  
As it is hard these days to reach easily my Feet and see the underneath  
i attended  to the area without Looking or applying Protection Day or Night
                                                        BIG MISTAKE! 
By the time i started to actually Feel Pain and Burning and all the Familiar signs
of TROUBLE , it was Too Late!… It had engraved an …Embroidery of Evil work!

Malassezia on Foot 1-MQ

Puffy Swelling – Blood Holes – Cheesy Centers

Malassezia on Foot 2-MQ

Photo1: Puffiness, Swelling around Blood Spot of developing Lesion
Photo 2: Puffiness, Swelling in Raised area, circled, creating two parallel 
                    vertical creases in between Big and Little Toe
Photo 3: Cheesy Centers –shown by arrows

The Swelling indicates accumulation of Liquid/Biofilm under the Skin Surface
meaning until all erupts upwards nothing can affect it except Peroxide
but i could not withstand the hours of Immense Pain let alone the Mess 
it would leave behind, so i was applying different options.
During the Day i  still washed when i felt activity or itchiness, then dried
and instead of using talc which can be absorbed through the open wounds,
i used a large Cotton Wad to Pad the Foot, Absorb Moisture 
which attracts it and Dry Malassezia as it erupted upwards.
This also Prevents Temporarily New Batches settling in the area.

If i still detected activity i alternated Seawater or Acidophilus Mix.
Too much Acidophilus gives me headaches due to the encapsulating 
agents and sugars, so i usually try to keep low usage during the Day
and increase when necessary, or at Night time.

At Night i empty an entire Acidophilus Capsule in a New Cotton Wad
and use Dropper to soak it with Wet Mix, to Work and Protect.
Once Malassezia has Passed the Spore stage
Acidophilus has the upper hand!

All Activity and Lesion Expansion in the area has now Ceased
and is in the Healing Stage, so i am keeping a vigilant eye
and making sure it is Dry at all times.

Exploring Eyebrow Trouble MF -MQ

I am Not diagnosing Malassezia
-easy yo see, yet hard to be certain-
as there might be other Skin Conditions
causing the above appearances.
I am indicating similarities with Malassezia
and associated Symptoms such as:

  •  Poor or Thinning Eyebrows
  •  Poor Top Eyelashes
  •  Scanty or Non existent Lower eyelashes
  •  Gritty Encrusted layer on Top Eyelash beds
  •  Surrounding Biofilm
  •  Biofilm presence (or dirty /darker shadow)
     which point to likely Malassezia Presence

The Symptoms presented in the Nail and Eye Photos
of (possible) Malassezia, may also be found
with careful observation in One’s Own Photos
simply taken by ordinary or iPhone camera

How ‘Normal, Healthy and Strong’ Looks 

Before we get to the Malassezia signs of Symptoms, let’s See
How Normal, Strong and Healthy Brows and Lashes Look
(despite what appears to be Biofilm presence under the Eye)

   Normal, Healthy Look of Eyebrows

     (Click on Photos to Enlarge)

Healthy Eyebrows-MQ

    Normal, Healthy Look of Eyelashes

In Google Image below – i have intentionally modified the Iris
to cover fancy lenses attracting attention, in order to display
without interference, how Normal, Strong Eyelashes should look.
Light Mascara appears to have been applied to enhance the look
but still looking Strong and Healthy – even if without
– unless they are … implants? – but do not appear as being so.

Healthy Eyelashes-MQ

Another possibility: If photo taken by special magnifying lenses
the look could be deceptive, as i noticed with mine below (blue)
-the only one taken by Digital Microscope- where the lower
lashes look Impressively Rich and Dark! 🙂
Any how,  the photo above was chosen only to illustrate
what Healthy, Strong Eyelashes should look … without tricks!
(I wish i could publish my Grand Son’s Eyes
so the Reader would see clearly what i mean
but i am dead against publishing children’s photos on the Net.)

Nails –What the Photos Reveal  (PT1)

Ever since the Startling Surprise
of Viewing my Perfectly Healthy looking Nails
under the Digital Microscope 
i have become obsessed with detecting 
similar -deceptive- appearances in other people’s 
Perfect looking –or not so– Nails and … Eyelashes!

So i compiled a Collection of Famous People’s Photos
selected Randomly from Popular Web Sites, Ads
and Google Images, initially from mere personal curiosity
and comparison and then progressively considering
whether it might be of interest sharing the observations.

Although All of them were displayed openly to the Public
and have been viewed by thousands of people
every possible care has been taken
to Remove any associations with Web Sites
and Reduce to absolute minimum, identification 
of Nail or Eye owner – not an easy task overall…

I am starting with Nails first because if i publish the Eyes
i may have a Ninja visiting through our veranda at night
1 tongue on cheekto serve me with a silent, Revenge bullet in the scull
before i have a chance posting about the Nails… 😛             

                      Observations on One of my Own 
                        Additional Photos and Details in 
                    “PHOTOS-Photo Analysis-Comments 

Finger Nails View 2-MQ

 My Observations on Various Collected Photos

Blood Spots – Inflammation – Biofilm

The edges of the Nails look painted white
and presumably Cuticles have been trimmed back
making hard to judge their state of health and quality
but i can see clear signs of trouble – marked in Photo 2:

  • Red arrows ~> indicate Blood Spots Under the Nail
    i.e Malassezia dig-in entrance points.
  • Curved lines ) indicate injured – Nail Root inflammation area
    and drying Biofilm on Skin surface – also present on Second Toe [ ]
    as well as widespread Biofilm presence on Foot surface
    -marked by arrows below- looking like dirty patches of skin.

Blood Spots – Inflammation – Corrosion

Exploring Nail Trouble2-MQ

I will assume the Ragged Nail edge is due to poor Filing
and not Poor Nail health, though i am much inclined
to believe it is the second…

Inflammation – Corrosion – Biofilm

Exploring Nail Trouble3-MQ

These being a gentleman’s Nails, i presume there was no
intentional Cuticle pullback, therefore their complete absence
is due to Fungal Corrosion, observed on All sides of Nail
with prominent inflammation areas and widespread Biofilm
on fingers and hand  (intentionally cropped off original photo)

Fungal Cuticle Corrosion – Inflammation – Biofilm

Exploring Nail Trouble 4-1-MQ

Exploring Nail Trouble 4-2-MQ

All Three Photos display prominent Fungal Corrosion
along –eaten up– Cuticles, dark area 2 &3 (orange – ( -circled)
of indicative Nail root Inflammation and Biofilm on surface
and Third photo shows additional widespread Biofilm
on base of finger ( ( circled in red – (– )

Cuticle Corrosion as in the above photos.

Exploring Nail Trouble5-MQ

Ladies Nail problems are more difficult to detect
because they are usually covered by nail polish
which conceals but can also potentially initiate
or definitely aggravate an existing condition.

Trimming or Pulling back the Cuticles opens area
to vulnerability and is issuing a deadly Invitation
to Fungal problems that once they start and set in
require a lot of effort to contain or reverse
and always subject to chronic recurrent attacks.

Eyes and Nails–What do YOUR Photos Reveal? (PT1)

Headache - MQ

            Reader’s Keyword

K1 – “malassezia cause headaches”

Headache-MQ

Malassezia is a ‘Headache’ on its own, so to speak
but as far i can tell it does Not cause headaches directly.  

It does Indirectly in different ways:

  • Through accumulation of Chemicals used to fight it
    either taken internally or applied externally and absorbed
    via the Skin – having to be processed by the Kidneys;
    (Irritated, Inflamed Kidneys => Fluid Retention => Migraines)
  • Lack of Body Hydration ⭐ drives Malassezia to the Kidneys
    through the bladder- another cause of irritated Kidneys
    due to Malassezia’s inflammatory chemicals.  

I have already written about the Relationship  
of Kidney- Back Pain and Kidney- Migraine
both in Malassezia Daily as well as in the present site.
In this Entry i shall write about ways i found helpful
throughout time in relieving the headaches:

Form time to time i get a type of Migraine i have named 
‘Lobotomy’ – because the first time it occurred
-some 6 months into Hormone Replacement Therapy-
I exclaimed in Desperation
“Oh my God could someone perform a Lobotomy on me?’
i.e Cut Out the ‘Clamp’ in my Brain.
This type lasts for Three Days no matter what i Do or Not
– and on the third day it goes away on its own accord.
I have not discovered yet Any means of quick cure or relief
despite a Long list of ‘hopeful’ trials and measures
over the years, other than avoiding a List of Causes.
So i shall leave this one aside for ‘If Ever’.

Any other Type, ie, full head, half head, part of head
external ‘peripheral’ or internal as ‘a Nail’ through,
Pressure in Eye/optical nerves, Whooshing Ears, etc
these i find easier and faster to deal with
by applying some or all on a list of measures:

  • Drink either a cupful of Plain Hot Water(+2) or mixed with
    Freshly squeezed Orange juice – if waking up with it
  • First and foremost: I Avoid Protein – burdens the Kidneys !
  • Fresh Fruit for Breakfast
  • Continue with Fresh Fruit only- until signs of it retreating
  • If improved, include Light meals without spices, additives etc
    until all entirely clear.
  • TENS Massage applied to Kidney area
    (See Notes in Pain Management- Pain Relief (PT1) (2&3)
    where Malassezia is to be considered.
  • Vitamin C powder (as Calcium Ascorbate) 1/2 -1 flat teaspoon
    once or up to every 4 hours
  • In some cases Hot Food – but Not Fried or Roasted
    and Free of Spice, Salt, Pepper, Additives,
    as Some of These as well as Synthetic Types of Sugars
    contribute or Cause the Headache Presence in the first place.
  • A Hot, Diuretic -Broth like- Soup i make, works wonders
    quick and simple and quantities are approximate:
  • Stick of Celery
  • 1/4 cup diced Beetroot- and or leaves or sticks
  • 1/2 -1 diced Zucchini
  • 1-2 chopped Mushroom
  • 3/4 cup Water
    (Only fresh Veggies -Totally additives Free )

Beetroot -MQ
Very Low heat until water approaches start of Boil point,
turn off heat – let stand 2-3 minutes, strain broth and enjoy.
Broth will do the Healing – the solids i add 
to my …someone else’s dinner 😀

I usually get relief as early as 2-4 hours – or maximum
after a night’s sleep. If this does not work i know i am
In for a Three Day Fresh Fruit or Smoothies only.
TD-FFS Always works Irrespective of Type of headache
even the Three Day Evil one!-but it is by then on its way out.

(Quite a curious phenomenon is that if it does Not go away
by mid of Third day it ‘clocks in’ another Three days! 
Not 1 – not 2 – not 4 …ever! Its a … Threesome one, Lol! 😉 )

I have never been keen on Painkillers-except in rare cases
a) Because they Block the Signals
(Body’s language of communicating “I have a Problem” )
b) They Do Not Cure – only mask the Problem
c) They help Perpetuate the True cause, and so
d) Contribute to Building a Chronic condition
by false appearance of problem as solved / gone

If problem persists – the Headache is not the Problem
in fact it usually is Only the Messenger.

There are Tell-Tale Signs of Underlying Problems
(often Chronically Present on some people’s Features
so that after a while they are not noticed by them  
or ignored and forgotten altogether and eventually
falsely considered as their Natural state and look
while still noticeable to others – at least initially)
such as: 

Ailments N-MQ

1-2 Dark Circles 3-4 Puffy Baggy Eyes 5 Red Blood vessels
6-7 Protruding Veins 8-9-10 Puffiness / Oedema

  • 1-2 Black Circles around the Eyes
  • 3-4 Puffy Eyelids and Bags above and under Eyes
  •     5 Swollen irritated Eye Blood vessels
  • 6-7 Swollen Protruding Blue Veins
  • 8-10 Puffiness / Oedema on other Body areas
    such as hands, legs, ankles, feet
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Scanty, Infrequent Urination and so on…

I could write pages on this topic but they would Not be
truly related to Malassezia as cause.
A ‘general health’ Site would be more appropriate
and i have already constructed one ready to go
but i am holding back because i don’t think i can handle
another WordPress Blog with Fake ‘Followers and Likes’ 
that do Not deserve devoting time to reciprocal Reading
as i am Not the type to deliver Quick Fakes of either. 

The Three Malassezia Sites are sought out voluntarily
by either Truly ‘Health Topic’ Interested viewers
or in True Personal Need for Info seekers.
All 3 with scarce Followers and almost Non existent Likes
but more sincere and worthy of devoting my time to-
choosing to visit only sites i truly Like, in my Lunch break.

So i shall Conclude here that at any case, whether
Quick or Lasting, Occasional or Recurrent Headaches,
these helpful measure especially the All Fresh Fruit

                                are

– Harmless and Beneficial to the Body
– Targeting Detoxification
– Flashing and Clearing the Kidneys, and
– Resulting Relief of most Migraines and Headaches.

(Please Note:
These measures provide Relief Without Harm
whether the condition is Temporary or Serious
but they may Not Cure a chronic Serious problem
There are many other causes of various types  
of Migraines and Headaches — and Recurrent ones 
Require Serious Investigation and Doctors attention
(Good Luck on that department!… )

The reason i Drink plain Water or with Fresh Juice 
and do Not include Herbal Teas, as i used to
prior to Identification of Malassezia- is because
a) They are Fermented – Not Suitable for Malassezia
b) They contain Artificial Flavours/Colours of sorts
and may further irritate the Kidneys.

Fruit Reconstituted Concentrates even without sugars
are Not the same as Freshly squeezed Juice
– due to having been subjected to pasteurisation
with resulting loss of their qualities.

Now some readers may be rolling their eyes at thisrolleyes
but think about it: When taking a Painkiller
          one does not take it for its Sugars and Flavours
            – just gulp it down and thats it.
          Fresh Fruit tastes Delicious and needs Nothing.

I m Right? Of course i m Right! … I m Always Right! 😀1 tongue on cheek

Malassezia Immune bypass - MQ
K1 – “slithering sensations and high temperature”
Despite Laboratory Research finding that Malassezia
bypasses detection by the Immune system as in:

———————    text     ♣     version       ———————
Unlike most pathogenic micro¬-organisms,
which provoke an in¬flam¬matory response in their host
Malassezia slip under the radar of the immune system,
having an immunosuppressive effect.
Malassezia’ s ability to modulate the immune system
may explain how
it is able to grow so successfully on healthy individuals
as a part of the normal skin flora.
 (medscape.com/viewarticle/589255 2)
   ———————               ♣                    ———————

it appears that when there is an Outbreak
the Body somehow Detects its presence and activity
and Raises the Temperature, not necessarily to Fever levels
but by a degree or so above the individual’s normal.
I have also noticed that sometimes it does the opposite…
Drops the Temperature Briefly to near hypothermic levels

Cold 1

usually with accompanying Shivers and Catarrh.
It could be a Response to Malassezia and/or Body
Toxins or Inflammatory Chemical Releases 
– i am no expert at that – only an ardent observer
of Frequently Repeated Patterns of my Body Responses
and Supporting Confirmations by my …Thermometer

Thermometer -MQ

Regarding the Keyword above:
and Assuming
a) It is a Malassezia case in regards to the Slithering sensation
b) The High Temperature is in Relation to it
It could be that either
a) Temperature, was caused by Flu, Cold, Infection etc
and set the Yeast in Motion, thus the Slithering sensation, or
b) Yeast –Outbreak– caused the rise in Temperature

Slithering is usually felt in the Genital/Anal/ inner Buttock area
or as warm liquid spreading outwards from these areas
actually being Sticky rather than feeling wet!
This i believe is due to the Early Stage Liquid quality of Biofilm.
It feels and IS Sticky and comes …in Colours!(+)

The Specks may be on Bumps created by Malassezia

K4 – “hair matted in sticky scalp scale infection
The ‘Scale’ is formed by either
 Dried layers of Biofilm, from where spores are released, or
 Solidified stage Malassezia –usually developing Hyphae
and creating ‘burning’ itchy lesions.
Hard to tell which just by brief Keyword Description
and without any other accompanying details.
In any case, Scalp requires thorough Soaking in warm water
followed by brushing to break down Scaling

Malassezia- A Slithery – Sticky Affair

Intestinal Bacteria FF -MQ (HTML)

After a Decade Long Treatment of Antibiotics 
and Consequences(+) i have been suffering during and since
i need no more convincing about the Truth
of the Antibiotic Research findings (below).
(+)Malassezia one of the most persistent, and annoying
and this  …after managing to eventually downgrade it
from its initial torturous levels of proliferation and destruction.)

Intestinal Microbiota                            

Microbiota 1CO- MQ

———————    text     ♣     version       ———————

Human beings have clusters of bacteria in different parts of the body, such as in the surface or deep layers of skin (skin microbiota),
the mouth (oral microbiota), the vagina (vaginal microbiota), and so on….
Gut microbiota (formerly called gut flora) is the name given today to the microbe population living in our intestine.
It contains tens of trillions of microorganisms,
including at least 1000 different species of known bacteria
with more than 3 million genes (150 times more than human genes).
Microbiota can, in total, weigh up to 2 kg.
One third of our gut microbiota is common to most people,
while two thirds are specific to each one of us. In other words,
microbiota in your intestine is like an individual identity card./strong>

              Why is Microbiota Important?     

Microbiota 2CO- MQ

———————    text     ♣     version       ———————

WHY is it important?
While each of us has a unique Microbiota,
it always fulfils the same physiological functions
and they have a direct impact on our health:

– It helps the body to digest certain foods that the stomach
and small intestines have not been able to digest.
– It helps with the production of some vitamins (B and K).
It helps us combat aggressions from other microorganisms,
maintaining the wholeness of the intestinal mucosa.
It plays an important role in the immune system,
performing a barrier effect.
– A healthy and balanced gut microbiota
is key to ensuring proper digestive functioning.

Unwanted impact of Antibiotics

Microbiota 3CO- MQ

———————    text     ♣     version       ———————

           Unwanted impact of Antibiotics
Broader, more Complex than previously known 

40 percent of all adults and 70 percent of all children
take one or more Antibiotics every year
They also kill intestinal epithelium.
Destruction of the intestinal epithelium is important
because this is the site of nutrient absorption
antibiotics and antibiotic-resistant microbes
caused significant changes in mitochondrial function
…………………..
…………………..
Healthy microbiota may also be another way to address
growing problems with antibiotic resistance, Morgun said.
Instead of trying to kill the “bad” bacteria causing an illness,
a healthy and functioning microbiota may be able
to outcompete the unwanted microbes and improve immune function.

 Infant Antibiotic use Linked to Adult Diseases

“Previous studies showed links between antibiotic use
and unbalanced gut bacteria, and others showed links
between unbalanced gut bacteria and adult disease.
Over the past year we synthesized hundreds of studies and found
evidence of strong correlations between antibiotic use
changes in gut bacteria, and disease in adulthood.”
Knights and his colleagues developed a framework
to map how antibiotics may be acting in the gut
to cause disease later in life.
In the case of allergies, for example, the use of antibiotics
may eradicate key gut bacteria that help immune cells mature.
These cells would have been essential for keeping
the immune system at bay when confronted with allergens.
Even if these bacteria return, the immune system remains impaired.
Related to obesity, antibiotic-induced changes
in the gut microbiota resulted in increased levels
of short-chain fatty acids that affect metabolism.

3- Difference Between IF and TENS Machines
4- IF vs TENS Machine Characteristics – Pros and Cons
5- The Massage Benefits
6- The Diet Part

3- Difference Between IF and TENS Machines

TENS machine Characteristics – Pros and Cons

    TENSE MACHINE-MQ

1} I enjoyed the experience and the relief it provided
and had it working hard for 15-30 minute sessions
on different parts of the Body while watching TV
or Reading a Book – always starting with the Kidney area.
2} Usually after the first 15 minute session i would start
frequent trips to the Bathroom releasing fluid that was
previously Congesting the Kidneys.
3}  I Could Feel the Effect of the Current Pulse
going through, Reaching Deep and the Benefit of
Relief of Congestion or Pain, Stiffness as well as
Invigoration and Lightness on area of application.
4}  Could Feel Current Pulse from level 2-3 right up to highest
Usually 4-6 was most comfortable and effective – but had
to be increased when using Battery after 3-4 day sessions.
5}  Duration of results in light cases was lasting long, while in
Specific Problems varied depending on Severity of ailment/s.
1}  In the described above situation of the Pelvic accidents
– having to use the ‘Toy’ version of TENS- due to unavailability
of the Better and stronger Brand/Model i had
i found it had almost No effect if any at all on Pain
either temporary or up to the time i replaced with the IF.

INTERFERENTIAL – Characteristics – Pros and Cons

Interferential Feedback 1

1} I could Not feel the Pulse at all – unless at Full Blast
and even then very faintly, being unsure whether it was working
or had stopped, having to check at the operation display screen
to verify session had started or finished.
Recommended level was 2-3 i used Highest–possibly detrimental.

2} Overall Feeling was of Heaviness and Light-headedness.
3} Had to use during Day time or could not Sleep at Night!
(Instructions manual warn about – i ignored- but was true)
I also found that although did not put Electrode pads
anywhere near the upper chest area, it caused me
Lung Bleeding after each session – perhaps due to high 
intensity setting – could not verify and had to stop using it.
1} IT proved Highly Effective in regards to the Specific
Pelvic/ Spine Intensity of Pain – Reducing it after 2-3
30 minute sessions by near 70-80% giving me some
temporary mobility for a few hours before Pain returned.
2} This indicates the claim of IF current reaches Deeper
than the TENS does and result is longer lasting, is correct.

I also use this Wooden Roller every Morning and Bedtime

Wooden Foot Roller-MQ

For a Quick Smoothing and Soothing of the Nerve Endings.
It’s a ‘Feel Good’ little Toy for Stiff or Tired Feet
– No more than that…

I had also purchased a number of years back
before the Malassezia plague, an electric
Foot Massager with Heat, which i also had to give up
because Vibration + Heat caused Blood Flow in the area
which attracted a full Blast Malassezia attack!
It took losing my Toe Nail almost completely twice
-right after a near complete recovery-
for the penny to drop that whatever was causing this
Nail ‘Infection’ was exacerbated by those 2 elements.
Did not know anything about Malassezia’
or its s existence at the time.

Foot Massager -MQ

So i cannot testify for its effect on Pain
I did not have any serious pains back then other than
Kidney ones whenever naughty by ignorance.
I had basically bought it for General Relaxation
and from what i remember it was good at that
and great for warming up the feet on cold nights.
Alas… the Mother of all evil arrived in my life and took
away that comfort from me- together with many other…

All Fruit Diet –All ProsNo Cons! 🙂

My All Fresh Fruit -MQ
One of the very First Actions i took was to go Temporarily
on an All Fresh Fruit Diet – of Fruit Smoothies and Salads
in All Raw, Fresh – No Additives, Sweeteners of any Kind
in order to provide High Nutrients and Help
Reduce Kidney Inflammation and Congestion
and thus Relieve Some Spine and Pelvic Pressure as well.
Fruits have High Diuretic effect and could feel its benefits
of–at least temporarily- Freshness and as if Cooling down Fire.

When the Combined methods started to produce
some gradual Improvement i started adding gradually
additional Raw, Unprocessed Foods with high
Nutritional content targeting Anti-inflammatory Properties.

Anti-Inflammatories -MQ
        ( More about the Diet in Malassezia Daily 

I am uncertain how much each of the concentrated methods
-each with its own merits, contributed to the gradual
Improvement of the Pelvic/Spine and Kidney Condition
until -as i have mentioned earlier- my Man’s daily
Massage routine, which changed the temporary, slow
and gradual to Fast, steady and Noticeably aiding
to regaining my mobility back to almost pre-accident levels.

My Personal assessment 

  •  Any method applied alone would not have worked.
  •  Due to the severity of the trauma and necessary burden
    and aggravation of any movement, it could have even
    turned the situation into a Chronic one
    due to Blocked Flow of Circulation, Prolonged Stress,
    and Inflammation and Congestion in each connected area.

What Each Method Contributed

Diet:

  •  Light to the Kidneys, Liver{-} and Digestion
  •  Rich, Bioavailable, Sustaining, Healing Nutrition
  •  Diuretic –Anti-inflammatory Action
  •  Promoting Intestinal Elimination
  •  Helpfully Detoxifying {-}
