Acidophilus in Lung Experiment

(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

 ‘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 & Triglycerides

Malassezia & Triglycerides- MQ

 Malassezia and Medium Chain Triglycerides

Medium Chain Triglycerides & M-C Free Fatty Acids

FFattyAcids MQ

Medium Chain Fatty Acids are usually derived from MCTs. 

There are different Chemical Structures, derivatives
compositions and Relationships of  MCTs, Fatty acids
Free Fatty acids, Saturated /Mono and Poly-Unsaturated etc
rather irrelevant to this Malassezia Specific presentation
so  i will proceed with selected points.

Some Generally Believed Good points

MCTs 1 -MQ

* Protein metabolism – whatever it means in practical terms…
* Weight loss supplement – as backed by some studies
* Energy Providing
* Contraindicated due to Ketogenesis and Metabolic acidosis
* Inconclusive Results
* Some digestive side effects –such as strong nausea etc

              Some Malassezia Hopeful?

MCTs 2-MQ

(Text Version For those using Translation )

This was based on observation that medium-chain fatty acids
could delay the growth of the seven Malassezia species in vitro,
but alteration of the infusate composition raises safety issues,
clinical trials to determine both safety and efficacy  seem imperative. However the efficiency of this preventive measure has still not been fully explored.        

* Could delay growth in vitro
* Clinical trials needed for safety and efficacy (on people)
* “alteration of infusate composition raises safety issues”

Infusate -MQ

A fluid given intravenously over a period of time                                                 for therapeutic purposes

        The Abstract below:

MCTs A 3 -MQ

* Medium C Triglycerides and M C Free Fatty Acids
Are toxic for Malassezia Species (in Vitro)

* Clinical trials needed for safety and efficacy (on people)
The Question again is not just IF it would work on People
but also How Much for How Long…and How Many times

“Commercially available infusions containing
Medium Chain Triglycerides might be used
to prevent Systemic Malassezia infections”

This is just an Assumption as much as is also that
Cream preparations or Oral anti-fungals containing
Ketoconazole, Itraconazole, fluconazole etc
and Sulphur and Selenium shampoos can solve the Problem…

Well… some do… but only very briefly- hardly for a day…
Usually Yeast Relocates quickly to other areas
( Details in  Malassezia Daily   Entries)

What sounds a Little Promising to me due to:
“Resulted in Complete Healing… with a rapid correction of…”
– again my guess is on a Temporary basis-  is 

Nitric Oxide LC1-MQ

                       Questions…Questions…Questions…

‘a Nitric Oxide – liberating cream’ and ‘photodynamic therapy’ 
or what  ‘regionally confined lesions?’ means 
in Medical terminology and application is all a mystery…

Possibly a Cream that causes release of Nitric Oxide 
applied Topically on Lesions in a particular ‘regionally confined’ ‘area?
But then what is new? – and for how long?
There are so many other items easier to obtain items
that do the same i.e Topically and Temporary’!…

Part of topical therapeutic approach under clinical evaluation
Part of Topical ?… Practical? applicable? during this century?

Also interesting to know if a follow up was done to determine
if there was a Recurrence after healing and how Soon

Some may go Coco…nuts having read the above

Malassezia - coconut -MQ

And So would I – if i did not know any better…

Well, Yes… I Am!

Malassezia–The First Time…

Malassezia History MQ

Malassezia History -MQ

                            Translated:

K1- “malassezia furfur the first time in 1974”

Well, it appears that the First time was in 1846 Not in 1974 
as History suggests together with some Interesting facts…

History

The study of the genus Malassezia
has been dogged by controversy
since it was first described in 1846 by Eichstedt (118).
Dissent has occurred over
* When the organism was first grown,
* The optimal culture medium,
* The relationship between the different morphological
    and colonial variants of the organism,
* The genus to which it should be assigned
    and with what name, and
* The role it plays in a variety of cutaneous diseases.

Malassezia History 1- MQ

(Click on Images to Enlarge)

Malassezia History 2- MQ

 (For those who use Translation)

Eichstedt was the first to describe the fungus associated
with lesions of pityriasis versicolor (PV) in 1846, 
when Robin designated it “Microsporon furfur” (367). 
but no name was given to it until 1853,
                     ……                                                                                          
By 1970, three species were recognized, P. ovaleP. orbiculare, andP. pachydermatis,
                    ……    
The ability to induce the yeast to form mycelial elements paved the way
for the unification of the two genera in 1986,
In 1990, Simmons and Gueho defined another species, M. sympodialis, ….
……
Thus, in the early 1990s the taxonomy of the genus Malassezia was still chaotic,
with different groups tending to favour  their own classification scheme
resulting in an inability to compare work carried out by different groups
This chaos was finally resolved with a seminal publication in 1995 by Guillot and Gueho 
They assembled 104 isolates of Malassezia species encompassing all the different
classifications favoured  by different groups  and carried out sequencing
of the large-subunit rRNA and nuclear DNA complimentarity studies.
On the basis of their results, they defined, and later named, seven species of Malassezia
M. furfurM. sympodialisM. obtusaM. globosaM. restrictaM. slooffiae,
and M. pachydermatis. (167)

Child Steps so far…

INTESTINAL BACTERIA 1-MQ
INTESTINAL BACTERIA 2-MQ

( Text Version for those using Translation) 

All people have trillions of bacteria living in their intestines. If you place them on a scale, they weigh around 1.5 kg. Previously, a major part of these ‘blind passengers’ were unknown, as they are difficult or impossible to grow in laboratories. But over the past five years, an EU-funded research team, MetaHIT, coordinated by Professor S. Dusko Ehrlich at the INRA Research Centre of Jouy-en-Josas, France and with experts from Europe and China have used advanced DNA analysis and bioinformatics methods to map human intestinal bacteria.

The gut is like a rainforest

Oluf Pedersen compares the human gut and its bacteria with a tropical rainforest. He explains that we need as much diversity as possible, and – as is the case with the natural tropical rainforests – decreasing diversity is a cause for concern. It appears that the richer and more diverse the composition of our intestinal bacteria, the stronger our health. The bacteria produce vital vitamins, mature and strengthen our immune system and communicate with the many nerve cells and hormone-producing cells in the intestinal system. And, not least, the bacteria produce a wealth of bioactive substances which penetrate into the bloodstream and affect our biology in countless ways.
