Really??? I don't understand that.
Anyway, I am wondering if it was safe since I have MS.
I do not have this fungus and I have had MS for 36+ years. This is more snake oil, I think. If you are going to take anything, please speak with your doctor for the best advice.
There was a study which involved a single patient and another with a few patients. What is possible is that with MS when your body's immune system is in overdrive it is possible that antibodies for the fungus is created. There has to be fungus infected patients prior to their development of MS for a causal link.
Now, it is possible that the fungal infection was the triggering factor in a particular patient, but I would say, save your money. I have seen similar causal links which prompted sales before regrets set in. I have seen several "fixes" cycle through 3 times and they will repeat as soon as a new generation of MSers come along.
