Malassezia – Almost There!???

 

    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!

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 ~

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…

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.

‘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.

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

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.)

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…

Cells that work together to Rid the Body of Infection

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.”

Digging Holes in the Skin!

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.

due to Eye Shadow /Liner cover ups
but still clearly visible and unmistakable, below
as it is short, gritty and irregular – no highlighting line!

Exploring Eyelash Trouble F 7-MQ

Gritty or Scaly Layer takes a Lot of Effort and Time to clear
I still have a thin residue from back then and trying hard
to prevent building up by daily scrupulous maintenance

Biofilm around Eyes

My Photos below are the only ones in these Entries
taken by Digital Microscope a while back, to capture
the Biofilm in the early stage when invisible
–the transparent Shiny edge of eye, in Left photo.
Later stage Orange Colour, above the edge, was easily visible.

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
and viewing on the computer.

We All have Malassezia Living on our Bodies.

“And can often Cause Problems especially on Elderly,
Chronically Ill and Immuno-compromised individuals”

     Selection of Photos

The Photos presented below were Randomly Selected
for appearing to display Similarities of Symptoms
in order to illustrate the Prevalence of Malassezia

I Remind the Reader that i am Not Qualified
to Diagnose any Medical Condition(s)
and i am only noting ‘what I see’ and shall let the
Regular Readers of Malassezia Blog Malassezia Daily
and Malassezia Health Quest make up their own minds.

    About the Photos

Although All Photos are displayed openly to the Public
and are viewed, no doubt, by thousands of people
Every possible Care has been taken
to Remove any associations with Web Sites
and Best minimise identification of Nail and Eye Owner.

I wish to NOTE that what is visible to my eye
is also easily visible to All individuals visiting those sites.
They are Not Photos taken by a Microscope.

1 tongue on cheekThe only ‘Microscope’ here is my … ‘expert eye’  😛   

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 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… 😛

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:

(Click on Photos to enlarge )

Exploring Nail Trouble1-MQ

  • 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.

Exploring Nail Trouble1-1 MQ

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.

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!(+)

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

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

Intestinal Bacteria – Friends and Foes

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.)

(Presentation in Flash Cards and in Text for those using ‘Translate’ Function) 

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.

2- Does it Relieve Pain?
(Have been covered in Pain Management- Pain Relief (PT2)

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 {-}
    ({-} Liver is affected during Stress – Trauma Situations)

Interferential Machine:

  • Relieved Temporarily Pain and Stress
  • Relaxed Peripheral Muscles
    (and possibly compressed Nerves)
  •  Temporarily Stimulated Circulation

Head- Spine/Kidney- Foot Massage

  • Soothed Head Peripheral Pressure and Promoted Circulation
  • Relived Kidney, Spine and Pelvic Pressure
  • Smoothed out Knotted Nerve areas along the Spine
  • Relived Spine Congestion Pressure, and thus
  • Facilitated Circulation
  • Foot Massage Soothed Nerve endings and Internal Organs
  • Stimulated Circulation
  • Promoted Kidney, Bladder and Intestinal function
    and their elimination processes.
  • Not to underestimate the magic of Human Touch!
  • Cat Massage

Cats Know Best! 🙂

Pain Management- Pain Relief (PT1)

Pain Relief -PT1-MQ
Following the Story of the Triple Accident
and the Very Painful resulting consequences
as detailed in:

 Malassezia Caused Oedema and Bruising – PT1    
 Malassezia Caused Oedema and Bruising – PT2   
 Malassezia Caused Oedema and Bruising – PT3   

I shall now devote this Entry to the additional ways 
i addressed Pain and Kidney Inflammation
and Recovery of  Pelvic – Spine and related areas

while observing effects on Malassezia rapid built up.

As i have mentioned in the above Entries
some measures produced a somewhat slow, gradual
improvement in the related areas of Inflammation
and a miraculous Resurrection by my Man’s dedicated
daily Head-Spine-Foot Massage, but no effect from any
or All combined, on Malassezia pace of spreading
except in  the areas i could reach
and take care myself as usually… or almost so.

Looking at the Photos below one can see how much
Nerve ‘Cabling’ goes through Spine and Pelvic area

Pelvic 1

     Also Below the Kidney and Pelvic Cabling connection

Pelvic 2

And how Inflammation in One area can Affect the Other
(often being the cause of or starting as Lower back pain)

Inflammation

Pain Relief Aids

After the First week of unbearable unrelenting intensity of Pain
and near total immobility, during which my Man took work leave
to stay at home and look after me, i thought it was time for some
drastic measures to speed the process rather than waiting
for it all to subside on its own accord.

For a near Decade before the Malassezia saga started and during
the initial stages -when not yet knowing much about it-
i had been using extensively  TEN machines – several models
–as described in a Malassezia Blog / Treatments Entry
and had found a terrific aid for so many ailments and areas
such as Minor Aches and Pains, Stiffness, temporary Arthritis
Relaxation, Massage, Circulation, Kidney Relief, Fluid Retention.

I could not establish its effectiveness on Malassezia, though
for the simple reason that i did not know back then its attraction
to Adhesives, Glue, Grease, Oils, Creams, Lotions etc.
and consequently to the area the Electrode Pads were attached
So in the end when i finally learned and established through
Research and Hard Personal Experience, its Lipophilic nature
i was forced to give the T / machine up and pack it away.

TENSE MACHINE-MQ

Being desperate though now to relieve the Pain
i retrieved it again to give it a try, only to find
neither channel worked either by battery or electricity
and neither could i find  a replacement of this  model
as there were no Suppliers.

I had a smaller back up of a 3A Battery and Electricity one
but it was neither strong nor of good quality- and did nothing.
So until i could search and find an equivalent replacement
i resorted in purchasing a simple Foot Spa, with inbuilt Massager
and hoped for some partial relief even if temporary.

Foot Spa -MQ

It was good for refreshing and relieving briefly
the burning and stretching pressure of the Feet

     Malassezia and Bruising Recovery N-MQ

but soon i had to give up the massage option as it stirred
Malassezia activity and finally i decided the effort of
setting it, filling it, emptying it etc was too much extra work
at a time my Man was doing absolutely everything for me
so i gave it up altogether…

In the meantime, i could not find equal quality replacement
for my TENS machine and it appeared there was something
New on offer – i.e The INTERFERENTIAL types of Machines
similar but -supposedly- more effective than the TENS ones.
Different Brands, Strengths and Qualities too
and NO available People Feedback for advice.
This is one good reason i am addressing it here,
more as Feedback for the Type of machine
for those seeking Pain Relief or management
even though it too presents the same issues with Malassezia
as the TENS machines, having to use Adhesive Electrode pads.

“Malassezia Caused Oedema and Bruising – PT3”

Malassezia caused Oedema -Bruising 3-MQ (HTML)
To Read First: Malassezia Caused Oedema and Bruising – PT1”
                        Malassezia Caused Oedema and Bruising – PT2   

So we started the Treatment and what followed was as 
astonishing as in some Previous occasions when 
Treatment brought Live Creature against Live Creature
locked into Collision and Combat
(One Mighty Helpful – the Other Mighty Evil)

Every evening my Man’s task was to

Apply Acidophilus Mix on each Leg
  from below the Knee area right down to my Toes.
Then Cover the Top of each Foot with a Cotton Wad
  soaked through with Acidophilus Mix
Wrap each Big Toe with Cotton Wad
  also soaked through with AMix
Secure with a Long Strip of Cloth or Gauze
Put on a pair of Tight Socks

I had to use some of his old motorcycle boot socks
because my feet were too swollen and painful, near impossible
to squeeze into any pair of mine no matter how old or stretched.

And then came the Test and Verification -the War had started
as i had anticipated – but not the way i had expected it…

Within 2 Minutes from Application, there was Response!
My Legs started to Sting as if bitten by dozens of Wasps
and Jerking with uncontrollable Spasms.
Muscles Pushed and Pulled Repeatedly in Painful Cramps
while the Skin Surface Burned like Acid Fire eating into
the flesh – On and On and On for a Full 15’- 20’ minutes.

This Torture was repeated Night after Night after Night
and for the first Three weeks nothing else happened.
No visible or felt change other than the Painful and
uncomfortable battle between Malassezia and Acidophilus.
Then all suddenly the battle duration started to get shorter
and shorter down to 5 mins and the Swelling to decrease fast.
It took approximately 6 Full Weeks at least with still some
resistant puffy pockets remaining and several persistent
attempts of new batches – dealt and stopped by the A Mix.

Then a Blessed morning …or should i say my Blessed Man
just before departing for wok, lingered and then went
behind my chair and gave me a quick head massage!
And from the next morning onwards he established
a longer head and back massage routine.
Within a few days this started to produce what every other
treatment had failed to the date, i.e miraculous, unbelievable
Fast and Lasting results of Pelvic, Spine and Kidney Recovery
and consequently Pain Relief and a Lazarus resurrection
into walking and wheeling the wheelchair as well as resuming
some of my personal care and even duties.
I could finally raise the armchair footrest and thus my feet
rapidly returning back to their normal Cinderella size.

Lets not get too carries away though…
There is No ‘Forever After’ with Malassezia.
Just a Daily Maintenance Routine achieving and ensuring
minimal presence and activity for 95% of the Body
with reduced chances and miniscule casualties
for the more vulnerable –difficult to access–areas
with the occasional nasty surprises of evil
done during sleep.

And now we come to the Under Skin Bruising
resembling the Blood Vessel Bursting Ones:
I Do bruise easily so i am quite familiar with the look, feel
and duration of the different types depending on the area
of occurrence – and have never attributed any of them
to Malassezia as i had no reason or indication to do so.
This one though, shown in the photo below, which was taken
at a much later stage well in the recovery stages, felt and looked
suspiciously a piece of its work but i had no way of verifying.

Malassezia and Bruising1 -MQ

The widespread drying Orange-Gray Biofilm on the Toes
and Top of the Foot is obvious but there was no other specific
indication that the bruise was created from underneath the skin
by Malassezia invasion. Then i had an idea:
I enlarged the Photo and made it lighter for clearer viewing
and there was waiting a great revelation
-the detail that served as the specific indication.
The very familiar Malassezia Lesion ‘Cheesy Center!’
                                A Triple one!
               (Green arrows in Photo below.)

Malassezia and Bruising2 -MQ

This of course was an extreme situation due to circumstances
both in regards to the Degree of Swelling as well as the Blood Bruise.

                  Below Two Stages of Swelling Recovery
                            (1- 2) early – 3 later stage.

Malassezia Caused Oedema and Bruising – PT1

Malassezia caused Oedema -Bruising 1-MQ (HTML)

K3- “Malassezia and bruising” – (PT1)

I am not sure if by ‘Bruising’ the Reader means an area on the Body
feeling ‘Bruised’ on touch or Blood vessel type of Bruising.
                        If the former then Yes! …
Malassezia does cause this sensation when it overcrowds
a particular area, in which case depending on the area

1- It may look puffed up, much like oedema as in first Photo below.

Malassezia caused Swelling -MQ

2- It may look Red and feel burning and sensitive to the touch
    like under the Nails, near Cuticles and on Finger tips as Below

(Click on Images to Enlarge)

Malassezia and Bruising 3 -MQ

           Green Arrows show ‘Live Specs’ of Yeast

3- It may look like a Blood vessel-burst Bruise, as Purple circled below

Malassezia caused Swelling 2-MQ

Blood Bruising, under the Skin is not something i had encountered
during the past 5 years other than very small pimple sized ones
where failed to erupt into Lesions. The usual is on Surface
where the skin is corroded and exposed when a Lesion is formed.

 All until this -not so recent now- incident and developments

Malassezia and Bruising -MQ

The Story attached to the above photo is coming in Next Entry
with details about events that followed a Triple Accident at home
that took place a number of months back
and what Malassezia did when left uninterrupted
been unable to fully implement Daily Maintenance
in inaccessible, due to pain, areas of my Body.

The Morgellons Confusion

The Morgellons Confusion -MQ
Q1- “mogllon is fungus malezzia”
It appears Morgellons is more widely known
due to general public confusion, than Malassezia is.
The Keyword above and the ones below
will illustrate what i mean by confusion:
Q2- “what is morgellons demodex mites”
Q3- “morgellons lice whats difference
         between lice and morgellons”
Q4- “morgellons candida
Q5- “was medusas hair morgellons” ****
The words in green, indicate creatures in their own right
medically identified and recognised, including Malassezia,
while Morgellons has yet to get there …
I am not refuting its existence but i am not in a position
to accept or reject, other than on personal level
until it is officially done by Medicine.
Q5- “was medusas hair morgellons”
I believe this Keyword refers to my Entry in Malassezia Blog
Malassezia Hyphae: Bloodsucking Medusas
The Reader is in a Malassezia site reading and looking
at a Malassezia Photo yet asks if the Hyphae ( hair)
                           
is … Morgellons!…

Medusa-MQ

 ‘I rest my case!’ 🙂

Q6- can morgellons be mistaken for lice
I would be more inclined to put this question in the Reverse:
Can Lice be mistaken for Morgellons?…
Lice is a Parasite while Morgellons is a bunch of symptoms
created by … ‘something’ either existing and confused as Morgellons
or Something not yet fully or officially identified or recognised. 

K1- “treatment for morgellons eye infection”
I wonder if this was a similar case to the ‘Medusas hairs’ entry
Reader intending to reach the Three Blepharitis Entries
Malassezia~Dealing with Chronic Blepharitis (PT1)
It is hard to tell which keywords were entered inside the Site
and which ones were keyed-in in external Search engines.

K2- “morgellons paper cuts”
A classic case of Malassezia mistaken for Morgellons?
I have mentioned in some earlier entries that some people
believing their symptoms are Morgellons while they may in reality
be Malassezia. Paper cuts are a characteristic Malassezia Symptom.

K2- “morgellon’s in intestines”
K3- “morgellons in vagina”
K4- “morgellons hair parasites”
K5- “morgellons lesions on the scalp”
K6- “morgellons lesions on buttocks”
K7- “near infra red morgellons”
K8- “cream of tartar morgellons”
This Entry in Malassezia Daily might be helpful
Morgellons&Demodex Symptoms-Malassezia Solutions

K9-“morgellons and the end of imes”
‘Morgellons and the end of T-imes’
Quite an Interesting Keyword…
I wonder what the Prophet had in mind
– Oops! …i meant the Reader! Lol! 🙂

K10- “mupirocin morgellons”
I am sure this keyword was not meant for any of my Sites
unless the Reader was already in one of them  
and inserted the keyword in the Site’s Search area.
I don’t know much about it so i Googled Mupirocin
and this is what i found.

“mupirocin cannot be used for extended periods of time,
or indiscriminately, as resistance does develop
and could, if it becomes widespread, 
destroy mupirocin’s value as a treatment for MRSA.
It may also result in overgrowth of non-susceptible organisms.”
