Hello Dr Ben,
I did order yesterday your product on sulfur for tinea versicolor after reading your comments and positive things.
I thank you for helping people and hope this will help and will contact you in 2 weeks to let you know for sure
I know it is a fungus and stress related to me , i ve had it for a year and normal allopathic cream does not help and I am also followed by an homeopath for different things. You mentioned stress, low vitamin D and mine is low so i am taking a good supplement too now.
For the fungus it is on my back ,shoulder chest and a bit on neck and I am worried. it used to be reddish when stressed and now it is more whilte patches and it is not so pretty. The dermatologist had it looked at and confirmed it is tinea versicolor but nothing really helps so thank you for letting me know what you think about it and if you have heard good things about this.Also reducing stress and sugar i understand ...
Keep me posted on your thoughts and experience about this product please and people who had great results.
Anything that depresses the immune system combined with humidity increases the likelihood of tinea versicolor.
Key nutrients to improve your skin health and reduce tinea versicolor:
- Saprox topically – which you have.
- Shower filter – to increase the health of your skin and reduce oil production causing improved tinea versicolor habitat
- ProBiota 12 Powder – taking ½ teaspoon after dinner daily for two months then switching to
- ProBIota 12 capsules – taking 1 capsule after dinner daily.
Both probiotics are key to improving immunity and reducing habitat for yeast & other fungi internally
- Biotin 5 – take 1 capsule AM and PM with or without food to increase skin health.
- Eat protein snacks every two hours to balance blood sugar which reduces binging and sugar cravings. Helps every time – significantly.
- Magnesium Plus – take 2 capsules AM and PM for one month then reduce to 2 capsules at night to help reduce stress, improve mood and outlook.
- Vitamin D3 – take at least 2,000 IU a day to 6,000 IU a day to increase your D3 levels.
- Make sure you change your shirt frequently – keep it dry. Wear breathable clothing.
- Avoid any creams or lotions on your skin.
- Optimal Multivitamin – take 3 capsules with breakfast and 3 at lunch and 2 around 3 pm with a snack. This will help your skin healing, reduce stress, improve immune function and overall health.
These suggestions of nutritional and lifestyle changes will greatly improve your skin, outlook on life and make your tinea versicolor a thing of the past.
It takes more than Saprox to get rid of Tinea versicolor. Don’t get me wrong, it helps tremendously for surface treatment, but those affected with tinea versicolor have to understand that the root cause is much deeper than the skin’s surface and it appears that you understand this – which is great.
Keep me posted.
I look forward to good news.
Thank you Doctor for all your info.
My homeopath is putting me on a regimen of great vitamins too as I have bladder ( urethra symtoms ) relapse due to stress and now also insomnia due to worry of relapse ,the snake biting its tail.
Thank you I ll start with the saprox combined with the vitamins and things she will recommend and buy from you too. Thank you .
I also need to eat more proteins you are right. I tend to eat sugar when stressed , and it does not help. I will keep you posted i promise, thank you for being so kind.
Also do I apply it 2 times a day on skin? back chest and neck? Thanks a lot!
Apply 2x/day – AM and PM. Insomnia can be due to lack of protein intake, high sugar diets and low magnesium.
Bladder issues can be due to yeast overgrowth and high sugar intake.
Look forward to the good news.
Thank you Doctor,
My bladder problem, without infection is always when I am under heavy stress ) urethritis... and the more I worry about it and then I cant sleep because I worry and so starts the vicious cycle of fear of symptoms ,adrenaline fear adrenaline fear but I do agree that also getting support with supplements works well,I relapse under stress and worriness, i am a chronic worrier and I am reading alot of books on mindbody connection such as Dr Sarno and Tms if you know and Dr Weekes( hope and help for your nerves ) I know that low magnesium is also the culprit for nerves so my homeopath will give me thrusday a great multivitamins for women in their 40s and magnesium too .I am waiting to get your sulfur thing for tinea versicolor and plan to buy later on the shower thingy for chlorine.
Also i am taking now vitamins d3, drink more water and will get my multivitamin from my homeopath but magnesium.She ordered it before i saw your website but will continue to order it with you later. I hope the sufur works.I also cut down on sugar starting today and eat more fruits ,veggies and proteins.What a work but worth it and I will keep you posted in 2,3 weeks after I apply the product.
Should I put it on my hair? is that necessary? I heard dermatologists mention that but they dont know as you do....
Thanks for all your time Dr Ben I sure will pass on your name and website
You can put the sulfuric mud in your hair but I wouldn’t – it may dry it out too much.
Instead, ensure you use the shower filter and take Biotin 5 to ensure protection. Biotin is very effective for scalp problems.
Hello Dr Ben,
I just wanted to let you know that I just got the saprox yesterday and started applying it on my back chest and neck as I have the fungus there.I will order another bottle of yours since I want to do it for at least 15 days and more ...
I saw my homeopath yesterday and she gave me all the vitamins and after seeing your web she told me how great you seem and will also recommend your website to people so we both want to thank you.I am also going to order the shower filter.'
My doctor wants me to start a diet ( i am not fat ,but for the reasons you mention) as I have stress ( and urethra tension being treated also with an homeopathic approach).The diet is higher in protein as you said. Hard for me to start the morning with proteins and a good breakfast but I am doing it . As you say, treating outside but inside too. I am also entering pre menopause so the vitamins she gave me have all the things you mentioned and other things for also perimenopause . So yes it is a change but I need to adress all the issues inside and outside and manage my stress an my thoughts which contribute to stress
I want to thank you most of all for all your time Doctor and I wish to help others by also giving your website( my best friend has toenail fungus so I will pass on the info on what I read ,I think saprox might work too.... lets see or the beer treatment you mention with other things in it...
Thanks again I will send you an email soon to keep you posted on my progress!
I wish you heath and the best!
You are a kind doctor
Great to hear you are in good hands with your homeopath!
If you do not usually have much appetite in the morning, that is due to sluggish digestion.
Talk with your homoepath about drinking a mixture of this before each meal to stimulate digestion and increase hunger:
- 1 to 2 teaspoons of Apple Cider vinegar
- Juice from a lemon wedge
- ½ cup water
Sip this mixture – slowly. Once you feel warmth in your stomach. Stop. Then proceed to eat once your appetite arrives – and it will shortly.
You’ll also notice improved bowel movements.
Look forward to hearing good progress!
Thank you for the referrals – and thank you to your homeopath also. Referrals are the best compliment!
Thank you Dr Ben
I will forward your email to my homeopath, she is well informed and told me you know alot.
I started changing my diet and eat protein in the morning. Not easy but I do it ,and drink water throughout the day and vitamins and the whole protocol and religiously appling the mud on back chext stomach neck and arms.... where I have spots.
I like it, at times it stings where the spots were reddish and visible so I think it is working .It has been 2 days only and today I am going to your website for another bottle and the shower filter. I really want to see results and need to be patient.
I have a question if you dont mind.
On my back the spots are white, at times pretty big but my skin is not that white. more olive but medium olive. Will the white spots remain and I have to retan later on? I am going for a month in Italy where it will be hot in the summer and I can avoid the sun but let me know what is best, I STILL HAVE 1 month 1/2 before I go but I dont want to get worse .... any suggestions ? on my shoulders those spots are visible but it seems like it is the pigmentation so hey look whiter, hard to tell .On my stomach they llok roung and reddish so therse i know are not healed.... and it is tinea versicolor as it was lloked at 6 months ago and tested by the dermato.
So I refused to take the tablets for liver anyway, totally agree with you! Thanks again and yes I do want to post pix when I am healed. Just wonder if I have to tan again or not . I don't mind avoiding the sun.
Do avoid the sun until the tinea versicolor spots are gone. The topical clay you are applying will kill the fungus. After 14 days, you may get into the sun again – but begin slowly.
It is the skin’s color which protects the skin from the sun’s potentially harmful UV rays.
The fungus destroys skin pigmentation – the melanin. They release a chemical that does that.
Once the fungus is gone, the chemical stops being released.
Once the chemical is no longer killing the melanocytes (melanin producing cells), your melanin will come back in time.
In order to speed this process up, Biotin 5 by Seeking Health is useful as biotin increases melanin production. You might be interested in reading this
Vitamin C, zinc, selenium, vitamin D and vitamin A are all important in skin healing as well.
A quality multivitamin will supply a lot of these.
You will need to take at least 2,000 to 5,000 IU of Vitamin D3 a day. One capsule of Vitamin D3 5,000 IU by Seeking Health is good as well as Vitamin D360 Drops by Seeking Health. One drop = 2,000 IU which is very potent and inexpensive. Both D3’s are very pure – no garbage in the capsule or liquid.
Probiotics, beneficial bacteria, also produce biotin. Thus, it makes sense that those who have low beneficial bacteria in their digestive systems are potentially low in biotin as well. Not having enough beneficial probiotic microorganisms in the intestines also make one susceptible to overgrowth of yeast, which depresses the immune system. Decreased immunity combined with low biotin-production is a perfect combination for tinea versicolor.
Thus, one should take ProBiota 12 Powder at ½ teaspoon after dinner for a month and then switch to ProBiota 12 capsules and take 1 capsule after dinner on going.
From digestive system to skin health – all united.
