Q.        I have been depressed for years.  I am now on three kinds of anti-depressants and two kinds of sleeping pills.  Can I take these medications and Dr. J’s products at the same time?  I am on a budget.  What herbal products can I take?

A.        There are no conflicts between our herbal products and antidepressants or sleeping pills.  Symptoms of depression vary among different individuals.  Our herbal products can
provide you with some degree of symptom relief. For example, Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) is good to remove excess yeasts and parasites in your body, and allow you to sleep better at night.  This may reduce your dependency on sleeping pills.

Male Vitality or Female Vitality are good to uplift your mood, give you calm energy, and improve your mental clarity and productivity.  This product is great for depression if taken on a consistent basis.

It is also important for you to adhere to a yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  Many clients reported to me that they get very depressed when they consume sugar or wheat.  Why?  When your little enemies yeasts and parasites are well-fed with their favorite food, they thrive!  Especially at night when the environment is still. This may cause insomnia.  Consequently, you feel fatigued, have low energy and low productivity the following day.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Exercise (slow walking), prayers, meditation, tapping, etc. are very helpful self-administered methods to reduce depression.   Please read my previous article or my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing for details.

The conventional treatment for hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) is using synthroid at various dosages to match with your body’s production of triiodothyronine (T-3) and thyroxine (T-4).  Synthroid is a synthetic hormone identical to the natural hormones in your body.  Because the production of T3 and T4 fluctuates based on your body’s need to metabolize sugar and fats you consume, the dosage of synthroid needs to be adjusted to avoid overdose of the drug.  Frequent visits to your doctor’s office are essential for blood tests to determine the T3 and T4 levels. 

Many of my clients have decided to take their health in their hands by improving their life styles, and go for natural remedies.

The following are common natural remedies for hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid):

Yeast –Free Nutritional Program:

As mentioned in previous articles, excessive intake of sugar and fats make the thyroid gland overworked and exhausted.  Therefore, it’s essential to feed your body with a yeast-free nutritional program that contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  These items are favorite foods for yeasts and parasites.  When you are on the yeast-free nutritional program, you feed your body – but starve the little enemies within.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Herbal Detox:

Yeasts and parasites develop colonies at the weak parts of your body.  Herbal therapy is essential to getting rid of the excessive yeasts and parasites so your body’s innate intelligence will have a clean slate to heal.  Since yeasts and parasites are like Siamese twins (they go hand in hand) a potent herbal formula is needed to remove both yeasts and parasites simultaneouslyYeast-Para Control is designed for this purpose. 

Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to cleanse your liver and kidneys, and remove the “debris” created by Yeast-Para Control.  Therefore, the combination of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea works wonders for detoxification!

Hormonal Regeneration:

Female Vitality or Male Vitality is designed to balance your hormones, increase cool, calm energy, improve your mental concentration, metabolism, and productivity, reactivate your libido, and uplift your mood.  For those who want to reduce the dosage of synthroid or not taking synthroid at all, Female Vitality or Male Vitality is a good supplement or replacement.

Stress:

Stress is part of daily life.  Stress can be a motivating force for you move forward.  One just needs to learn stress management techniques to make stress work for you instead of against you. 

Daily meditation, stress releasing technique, prayers, affirmations and meditative walks are all helpful self-administered methods to manage stress properly.  For details regarding all these stress management techniques, please read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

Adequate Iodine Intake:

The trace mineral iodine is essential for the production of thyroid hormones.  Many Americans have iodine deficiency.  Sea vegetables such as kelp is an excellent source of iodine.  One table spoon of kelp yields approximately 12 mg of iodine while the daily recommended dosage is only 150 mcg (1mg =1,000 mcg).  Eating sea vegetables regularly will help maintain a strong thyroid function.  There is a recipe for Seaweed Tofu Soup in my yeast free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

The above natural remedies have proven very effective for the treatment of hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid).  Depending on the T3 and T4 levels in your blood tests, you may want to wean yourself off of synthetic hormones by incorporating these natural remedies.

There are no uniform symptoms, causes and treatment modalities for ADD or ADHD.  Every case should be given individualized attention and treatment plans.  Basically, there is no cure for ADD or ADHD.  However, the symptoms can be controlled with proper intervention.  After dealing with clients with ADD or ADHD for three decades, I have found the following treatment methods to be most effective:

Yeast-Free Nutritional Therapy:

A yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine nor chemicals works wonders to reduce hyperactivity, poor mental concentration, irritability, moodiness and the other symptoms mentioned above.  The logic is very simple: a yeast-free nutritional program reduces the infection in your middle or inner ear.  When the yeast infection is under control, the swelling of tissue goes down.  This, in turn, allows sensory input to be transmitted from the external environment to your brain without obstacles or blockage.  Consequently you can be more receptive and responsive. To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow the recipes in my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Herbal Therapy:

Chinese herbal formulas are also found to be effective in the detoxifying and healing process.  The most important formulas to use are the ones that clean up infections in the middle ear and the sinus.  When the yeast infection in the middle ear is under control, you will be able to hear better, respond more appropriately, and in most cases, your ear ringing will also go away.

Sinus congestion not only blocks sensory input, but also prevents the brain from getting a sufficient supply of oxygen.  This, of course, is a double whammy!  When the sinus infections are cleared, your mental clarity will also be restored.  Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea are excellent combination in clearing the yeast infections in the mid or inner ear or sinuses.

Not every individual with ADD experiences hyperactivity.  You might experience low energy and depression.  Therefore, additional herbal formulas for uplifting energy and mood are recommended.  Male Vitality or Female Vitality is designed to uplift your mood, increase energy, and improve mental concentration.

Psychological Counseling:

As mentioned earlier, all individuals with Attention Deficit Disorder tend to experience emotional issues that have not been worked through.  Either children or adults, it is important for them to identify the core problems contributing to the disorder.  Seeking help from experienced therapists dealing with ADD or ADHD is an essential step.

If impulsiveness is present, you will need to be in a behavior modification program either on an individual basis or in a group situation.  The purpose of these programs is to help you learn to set limits on your behavior and learn a new way to gratify your needs or delay your gratification.  You also need to learn how to organize a structured routine that is easy to follow so that your frustration will be reduced to a minimum.

People with ADD are often highly intelligent.  If you are one of them, don’t give up!  You can make a great contribution to society if you learn how to control ADD or ADHD and make the best use of your intelligence!

Our Herbal Detox program works wonders for snoring.  Last year when I went to an educational retreat, my roommate snored badly the first night.  On the second day I gave her Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea.

She took them religiously everyday according to my instructions.  Consequently, I was able to sleep for the rest of the week!  I became very “famous” at the forum for relieving snoring!

Here’s how it works.  Most people snore because they have excess mucous in their throat or sinuses when they sleep.  Therefore, they have to open their mouths to get air.  In doing so, they make loud noises when they breathe.  Yeast-Para Control removes excess yeasts, parasites, toxins, and mucous from the airway, and Cleansing-Balance Tea cleanses the debris that Yeast-Para Control creates.  The combination therefore works very well to relieve snoring.

Some of my clients who have a singing career love our Herbal Detox program because it keeps their throats free of mucous (and thus enable them to have a clear singing voice).  By following a yeast-free nutritional program, one can prevent or facilitate the treatment process of snoring problems.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

In order to correct weight problems, you should learn to nourish your body and mind on a regular basis.  Getting and staying trim is a lifelong project.  No crash diets, injections, medications, or surgeries can achieve this purpose.  The following natural remedies have been confirmed by many of my clients as most cost-effective for weight control:

Yeast-Free Nutritional Program:

The first step towards the right direction is to wean yourself from foods containing sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and chemicals.  Stop putting poisonous or highly allergic foods into your body.  Give your thyroid a chance to rest and regenerate.  Allow your body to avoid the assault of wrong foods, and instead be nourished by nutrients from the right kind of foods.  If you would like to learn more about what to eat and what to avoid, follow the recipes in my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Herbal Therapy: 

For those of you who have a long history of being overweight, you should consider herbal formulas specifically designed for weight control as an additional measure.  A yeast-free nutritional program is meant to give your body a new start, while an herbal therapy program is meant to remove the existing toxins from your body and revitalize your sluggish metabolism.  A well-formulated herbal program for weight control should have the following three functions:

 1.  Control Your Appetite:

 Most Americans overeat.  When I traveled in Europe, I noticed that my American friends were often surprised by the relatively smaller portions of food they received in European restaurants.  A traditional Chinese belief is that you should not eat more than a handful of food for each meal.  For those of you who love to eat, you probably wished you now had a larger hand (smile)!  Even though some of you are well aware of what you should eat and what you shouldn’t eat, when an abundance of food is available, will power may often give in.  Luckily, a well put-together herbal formula can curb your appetite naturally without extra effort on your part.

Our Herbal Cocktail was specifically designed for this purpose.  The high protein herbal drink contains multigrains and powerful digestive enzymes.  This product curbs your appetite, stops sugar craving, and nourishes your body.  A scoup of this powder in a cup of Cleansing-Balance Tea can usually carry you over for about two hours if you are too busy to have a regular meal.  It has been considered a life-saver by my busy clients.

For those people who fast periodically, the combination of our Cleansing-Balance Tea and Herbal Cocktail is extremely nourishing during the fast.

 2.  Block Fat from Forming Fatty Tissues.

 As mentioned previously, the Standard American Diet (SAD) usually contains 40% to 60% fat in a given meal (A cheesburger is a good example.)  If you wish to reduce weight, you need to learn to eat sensibly and avoid foods containing a high amount of fat.  However, many people may deviate knowingly or unknowingly.  As a natural facilitator, a good herbal formula for weight control will also eliminate a signficant portion of the fat you put in your body.  Before the newly ingested fats have a chance to be stored in your body, the herbal formula should be able to expel them provided that you are not consistently overloading your body with fatty foods. 

Our Fitness Regular is designed as a fat blocker.  Over the past 15 years, our clients also reported side benefits such as balancing of their blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol.

3.  Burn the Existing Fat in Your Body and Turn It into Energy:

In addition to preventing new fats from getting or being stored in your body, the third function of an effective herbal weight control formula is to burn the existing fat in your system and turn it into useful energy.  As a result, you will feel energetic, mentally clear and productive.

Before your body can function at its optimal level, it has to clean house!  Drink a lot of water or our caffeine-free Cleansing-Balance Tea to flush the debris; therefore, the cleansing and purging processes can be facilitated.  Also, our Fitness Plus is designed as a fat burner.  This product contains a good amount of Acai berries to facilitate cleansing.  We also use veggie capsules for this product.

All of our products contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no corn, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, nor chemicals.  Only the finest ingredients are used in our formulation.  By following our complete program, you can experience steady weight loss of two to three pounds per week- a healthy and safe pace.

In the next article, I will discuss how you can manage your stress effectively, how to restore your spiritual balance, and how to exercise effortlessly without going to the gym.  Stay tuned!

Excess weight is a very costly health problem which can be associated with life threatening conditions such as atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, cancer, respiratory disorders, gallbladder disease and metabolic dysfunction.  Being overweight can negatively affect health, appearance, self-esteem, and even earning potential.  Some researchers estimate that each pound of extra fat can cost an executive $1,000 a year in income.

Causes of Overweight Problems:       

Major causes of being overweight include poor eating habits, yeast disorders, thyroid dysfunction, psychological stress and spiritual imbalance.

Poor Eating Habits:

As mentioned previously, an average American eats 120 pounds of sugar per year.  From birth to age 70, on the average, an American eats eight cows, nine pigs and 15,000 eggs.  A well-balanced diet should contain less than 20% fat, less than 20% protein and more than 40% complex carbohydrates.  Excess intake of fat, protein and sugar can turn into overstorage of fat.  Americans also tend to overeat or not to eat at regular hours.  Some skip breakfasts and others have big meals right before bedtime.  Irregular hours and portions can confuse your biological clock and jeopardize your metabolic function.

Yeast Disorders:

As described in previous articles, yeast disorders are misdiagnosed and improperly treated by most medical professionals.  In addition to all the symptoms from head to toe such as foggy mind, allergies, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), chronic fatigue, low enegy, immune deficiency, arthritis-like aches and pains, skin rash, vaginal yeast infections, male yeast infections, depression, anxiety, etc, a persistent overweight condition can be an indication that your metabolic function is being jeopardized by stubborn yeast disorders. 

Yeast can creep in to any part of your body, especially sites which are weak to begin with.  For instance, if your thyroid gland is weak, then opportunistic yeasts can particularly affect your metabolic function and cause further deterioration.  If yeast disorders are not corrected, the weight problem will persist.  Some clients complained to me that they gained weight even if they just drank water!  Even though they may not have been as innocent as they portrayed themselves to be, there is some degree of reality in their complaint.  The fact is that it is very difficult for them to lose weight, no matter how hard they try. 

Hypothyroidism:

Severe hypothyroidism manifests symptoms such as obesity, constipation, dry skin, cold intolerance, hair loss, puffy face and mental retardation.  Contributing factors include congenital and environmental causes.  The latter includes poor eating habits.  Constant excessive consumption of sugar causes overwork and exhaustion of the thyroid gland.  On top of it all, untreated yeast disorders will further weaken thyroid function.

Psychological Stress:

Some people manage to be in constant crises.  For those who are used to a dysfunctional behavioral pattern, they feel anxious or uneasy if their lives are peaceful.  Somehow they have to create a situation where there will be chaos, and thus their frantic behavior can be justified. 

People who are not able to manage stress effectively will usually indulge themselves in emotional eating.  Food is a symbol of love and comfort across cultures, especially for those who associate food with parental approval and attention.

Spiritual Imbalance:

Many overweight people suffer from spiritual imbalance because they carry a great deal of  “unfinished business” on their shoulders.  In most cases, they crave approval from their parents.   Some are angry and hurt because they were abused sexually, mentally or physically during their childhood.  The predominant emotions are anger, resentment, grief and regret.  Some even feel sorry for themselves and feel that their negative feelings are well justified.  Usually they are unclear about the purpose of their existences.  They tend to “live to eat,” instead of “eat to live.” 

In the next article I will discuss natural remedies for effective weight control.  Stay tuned.

Q.        Do Dr. J’s Detox products contain Kelp? I was advised that including Kelp in my supplements would be helpful for me but through research I heard that too much could cause issues. Could you please let me know when you have a minute? Thank you!

A.         Our Herbal Detox program consists of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea.  Yeast-Para Control does contain a small amount of kelp that is an excellent source of natural iodine.  Given the fact that most Americans are iodine deficient, the amount of Atlantic kelp I put in the formula is bridging the gap. 

All of our herbal formulas contain no sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, nor chemicals.  The capsules of Yeast-Para Control are vegetarian caps.  Our herbal products are formulated in a synergistic manner in which each ingredient enhances each other’s main effect, and take away the possible side effects.  Therefore, one does not have to be concerned about overdosing on the amount of beneficial iodine in our Herbal Detox program.  

For those who are not familiar with our popular Herbal Detox program, here is the recap:  As mentioned previously, our cost-effective Herbal Detox program consists of Yeast-Para Control  and Cleansing-Balance TeaYeast-Para Control is designed to remove excess yeasts and parasites in the body.  All human beings and their pets have yeasts and parasites in the body to a greater and lesser degree.  When your immune system is strong, your body can co-exist harmoniously with your little enemies.  When your immune system is weak, your body can be controlled by these microbial orgasms. 

Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to cleanse your liver and kidneys and also flush the debris that Yeast-Para Control scrubs loose.  The function of Yeast-Para Control is like scrubbing the toilet, and that of Cleansing-Balance Tea is like flushing the toilet.  These two formulas work together to cleanse toxins in your body and allow the innate intelligence of your body to rebuild your immunity.  Even if you are symptom free, I would recommend that you stay on our Herbal Detox program for at least three months in a row.  If you already have some health issues, I would advise you to stay on the Herbal Detox program until you are symptom free, and then stay on a maintenance dosage. 

How long would it take for you to get a clean slate?  Generally speaking, for one year of illness, it takes at least one month of vigorous cleansing provided that you follow the detox protocol diligently.

For consultation on yeast-free nutrition, herbal detox, hormonal imbalance, stress management, and spiritual counseling, please call us at (800) 715-3053, or send an e-mail to drj@drjsbest.com.  Consultation sessions over Skype or the telephone are also available.
