Belly.In the previous article, I discussed the symptoms of leaky gut syndrome and its possible causes.  To recap, the leaky gut allows substances such as toxins, microbes, undigested foods, waste, and larger than normal macromolecules to leak through an abnormally permeable gut wall.  Consequently, this causes your immune system to react.   You may experience symptoms including bloating, diarrhea, indigestion, unhealthy weight loss, sugar craving, genital yeast infections, chronic fatigue, mind fog, and depression.

Possible causes of leaky gut syndrome include yeast and parasitic infections, poor dietary habit, and psychological stress.  This may lead one towards liberal use of antibiotics and other potent drugs, which may only exacerbate the problem.  Luckily, leaky gut syndrome is reparable.  In this article I will address the holistic treatment for repairing leaking guts and regain health and vitality.

Herbal Therapy for Yeast and Parasitic Infections:

To prevent the worsening of leaky gut syndrome, the pathogenic yeasts and parasites need to be removed simultaneously as soon as possible from your intestines.   A strong herbal detox program is needed to perform this task quickly and effectively.  Our Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) is designed for this purpose.  Usually within days of taking these two herbal formulas, my clients reported seeing debris of yeasts, eggs of parasites, or bodies of mature worms in the toilet.  Debris of yeasts looks like hair, cotton, clouds, or mucous in the urine.  Eggs of parasites look like sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, brown rice, or white specs in the stool.  Mature worms look like string cheese, spaghetti, colored rot, or broken tree leaves.  Yeasts and parasites have more than 250,000 species.  I will not be able to describe all of them!

You also need herbal formulas that can repair the lining of your digestive tract and allow healthy tissues to grow.  Our Herbal Cocktailhas many great functions including repairing the lining of your damaged intestinal walls.

 

Anti-Yeast Nutritional program:

An anti-yeast nutritional program contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  Even though this is a tall order for most Americans who are used to the Standard American Diet (SAD), do the best you can to follow these “Eight Commandments.”  To learn more about what to eat and what to avoid, read my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.  Both hard-copy books and e-books are available on our website: www.drjsbest.com.

 

Manage Your Stress Effectively: 

Most of clients report to me that their leaky gut syndrome flared up when they were under stress.  Stress is a part of life.  When managed effectively, stress can propel you towards higher levels of success or spirituality.  Many roads lead to Rome.  Try different ways to reduce your stress.  Daily prayers, meditation and exercise are very simple and effective ways to manage stress.  If you do not know how to meditate, visit my website at www.drjsbest.com and download the free10-Minute Meditation Guide.  Practice 10-Minute Meditation daily, and you will enjoy newfound peace and harmony.

 

Use Antibiotics or Other Potent Drugs Very Cautiously:

As explained in the previous article, the western medical establishment uses antibiotics as a “catch all” magic bullet for all infections without consideration of strengthening the immunity.  Cortisone is another popular drug used to inhibit the inflammation process but destroys the immunity.  They may be effective in inhibiting inflammations for a short period of time; however, in the long run, they weaken your immunity, and thus allow yeasts to overgrow.  Remember, yeasts and parasites are “Siamese Twins”.  They go hand in hand.  When yeasts overgrow in your body, so do parasites.

As I mentioned in Part 1 of this article, when people developed leaky gut syndrome, they usually encounter all the factors described above.  However, if you employ a holistic approach towards healing leaky guts, you will experience improvement.  Be patient with yourself, and with your life.  Leaky gut syndrome is curable!

Q.        I suffered from acid reflux for about two years.  My symptoms got worse whenever I drank tea, ate raw food or pickles.  I don’t want to take all these antacids.  Can you tell me about natural remedies for it?

A.        Acid reflux is usually associated with stress, poor dietary habit, and yeast and parasitic infections.  You need to work on three aspects to regain your health.

1) Stress management:

Stress is a part of life.  Learn to manage your stress effectively and let it propel you to the next level of success.  Meditation is a great way to manage your day-to-day stress.  If you are too busy, or too lazy, or both (like my clients confess to me) to meditate, then go to my website to download a FREE 10-minute meditation guide: www.drjsbest.com.  Practice this 10-minute meditation everyday.  You will soon fill your heart with love, peace and harmony.

2) Adopt an Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program:

When you adopt an Ant-Yeast Nutritional program which contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no chemicals, your body would become more alkaline than acidic.  Also, regular tea contains caffeine.  Pickles are fermented and have yeasts.  That’s why they create more acid for your body and bother your stomach.  My yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking will give you more information about what to eat and what to avoid.

3) Herbal Therapy to Cleanse Yeast and Parasites:

Stress can lower your immunity and make your body prone to the attacks of yeasts, parasites, bacteria and viruses.  Poor dietary habit (Standard American Diet – SAD) creates an acidic environment for yeasts and parasites to overgrow.  It’s a double whammy!  Use our Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) to remove harmful, excess yeasts and parasites.

Acid reflux is easily treatable if you follow the above natural remedies.

As mentioned in the previous article, leaky gut syndrome is not a recognized diagnosis by the western medical establishment.  The symptoms of leaky gut syndrome mimic symptoms discussed in previous articles including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, Irritated Bowel Syndrome, Lyme disease, etc.  It does not matter what kind of diagnosis you have, what matters is that you need to get well!

Many medical doctors may say there was “nothing wrong” with you according to their tests; or worse, you were told it was “all in your head” and gave you prescriptions for depression, pain, insomnia, etc.

Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience working with clients with inflammations of the gastric-intestinal tract (GI tract), the following have been the most effective holistic treatment methods:

1)    Yeast-free nutritional program:

If you have been reading my articles, you must be familiar with my yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  My clients call it “Dr. J’s Eight Commandments”.  You might ask, “How long should I stay on Dr. J’s yeast-free nutritional program?”  This is essentially a nutritional program for life.  This is why I do not label this program a “diet.”  Diets denote a temporary eating habit.  If you want to nourish your body and starve the yeasts and parasites, it is recommended that you stay on our yeast-free nutritional program as much as you can, especially in the first three to six months of the treatment.  When your immunity is stronger, you can “relax” a little bit on the no-no items.  However, you do need to prepare for the consequences whenever you deviate from our yeast-free nutritional program.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

 

2)    Herbal Therapy

Based on my clinical experience, I have found that many diagnoses share the same symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections.  Once we remove excessive yeasts and parasites in the body, the inflammation of the GI tract is under control.  Our Yeast-Para Control formula is designed for this purpose.  According to my best knowledge, our Yeast-Para Control is the only formula that can remove yeasts and parasites simultaneously.  Remember, yeasts and parasites are like Siamese twins.  They must be removed simultaneously from your body in order for you to get well.  Yeast-Para Control loosens the toxins in the body, and Cleansing-Balance Tea flushes the toxins.  The two formulas work synergistically together to remove excess yeasts and parasites.

Herbal Cocktail is essential to repair the damaged linings of stomach and intestines (both small and large intestines).  It’s a high protein herbal drink rich in absorbable nutrients and digestive enzymes.  You can mix with Cleansing-Balance Tea or make a delicious herbal smoothie.

Fatigue and mind fog are common symptoms for people with leaky gut syndrome. The Hormonal Regeneration program (Female Vitality or Male Vitality) gives you calm energy and increases mental clarity and productivity.  These products also improve sex drive. 

The combination of the above formulas would help you experience symptom relief to a greater or lesser degree.  How long do you need to stay on the herbal program?  It depends on your health condition, commitment and budget.  I customize the treatment program to suit your individual needs.

3)    Stress management

Stress is part of life.  No one is immune to it.  Daily meditation, affirmations, prayers, and deep emotional releasing technique, are all very helpful to manage stress effectively.   Read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, for details.

 

4)    Proper hydration

Drink eight to ten cups of liquid per day to ensure smooth elimination of toxins.  Initially this might seem to worsen the symptoms of diarrhea, but eventually the condition will improve.  Besides, chronic diarrhea can cause dehydration, which in turn can cause many other symptoms, such as muscle cramps.  If you are on our Herbal Detoxprogram, you will be instructed to drink at least six cups of Cleansing-Balance Tea, in addition to our herbal smoothies, soups and water.

5)    Low-impact exercise

When you experience chronic fatigue, the last thing you want to do is exercise.  However, it’s important to “force” yourself to do some low-impact exercise such as slow walking in your neighborhood.  You may start from ten minutes and slowly increase based on your body’s strength.  Exercise generates endorphins (the morphine within – a natural pain killer), and it will help reduce arthritis-like aches and pain.  Fresh air and better blood circulation will also improve your overall well-being.

According to Wikipedia, Leaky gut syndrome is a proposed condition of a damaged bowel lining. The term is used by some holistic health or alternative medicine practitioners, but is not a recognized diagnosis. It is hypothesized that leaky gut syndrome is caused by increased permeability of the gut walls resulting from toxins, poor diet, parasites, infection, or medication. The leaky gut then allows substances such as toxins, microbes, undigested food, waste, or larger than normal macromolecules to leak through an abnormally permeable gut wall. Proponents propose that these out-of-place substances affect the body directly or initiate an immune reaction.

According to my clinical experience, Leaky gut syndrome is a cluster of symptoms caused by digestive tract inflammation.  Symptoms include: bloating, diarrhea, stomach pain, extreme fatigue, mind fog, poor digestion and absorption, arthritis-like aches and pain, sleeping disorder, etc.  The symptoms mimic several diagnoses such as fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chrohn’s disease, Lyme disease, irritated Bowel Syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis, yeast and parasitic infections, etc.

For many sufferers, it’s just a relief to finally put a name to the symptoms; however, it does not change the fact that their suffering continues.  It’s important to know the possible causes of these symptoms and the holistic treatment for them.

Possible causes of Leaky Gut Syndrome:

1)    Yeast and parasitic infections:

 

Yeasts and parasites use their hooks to hook onto the mucous membranes and suck nutrients from the host.  If they develop colonies in the gastric-intestinal tract (GI Tract), then stomach ulcers or leaky guts can be a result.  Not only do they suck nutrients from the host, they also damage the linings on the walls of the GI tract.

 

2)    Poor dietary habit:

Standard American Diet (SAD) is loaded with sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, caffeine, alcohol, and chemicals.  The SAD feeds the yeasts and parasites and worsens the symptoms.

 

3)    Psychological stress:

 

Carrying negative emotions such as anger, resentment, fear, regret, or guilt is like driving a car with the hand-break on.  It causes wear and tear to the car (your immune system).  When your immunity is weak, all kinds of invaders such as bacteria, viruses, yeasts and parasites can defeat you and cause all kinds of illnesses.

 

4)    Liberal use of antibiotics:

 

The western medical establishment uses antibiotics as a “catch all” magic bullet for all infections without consideration to strengthening the immunity.  In fact, excessive use of antibiotics destroys the immunity, because the potent drugs kill both the good and bad bacteria floras in your intestines.  The “bad guys” such as harmful yeasts take little time to come back; while the “good guys” take a long time to rebuild.  Thus, an imbalance is created, and yeast overgrowth becomes an additional health issues for you to handle.

 

In the next article, I will discuss the holistic treatment to repair the leaky guts and regain your health.  Stay tuned.
