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.

As I stated in the previous articles, most physicians treat prostatitis with a liberal dose of antibiotics with the hope that antibiotics would cure all.  Unfortunately, chronic prostastitis does not usually respond to potent antibiotics.  Even if it did temporarily, the stubborn infections are recurrent.

The best treatment for chronic prostatitis is to uproot the cause.  Here are some natural remedies that have proven to be helpful to my clients:

1)    Yeast-free nutrition:  This is a nutritional program that contains no sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, nor chemicals.  This program is meant to prevent yeasts and parasites in your body to be well-fed with their favorite food.  Even though this may be a tall order for people who are used to Standard American Diet (SAD) , do the best you can to get as many benefits as possible.  If you want to know what to eat and what to avoid, follow the recipes in my yeast-free cookbook Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.  Once you are familiar with the principles, you can easily create your own recipes.

2)    Boost your immunity: Remove the toxins in your body, so that your body’s innate intelligence can heal you.  Our Herbal Detox program (consisting of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) is excellent for this purpose.  For one year of illness, one should detox at least one month to reactivate your immune system.  Meanwhile, you may add Male Vitality to boost energy, productivity, mental clarity, and immunity.

3)    Stabilize your male identity: It does not matter what your sexual orientation is, as long as you make contributions to society, you are to be cherished.  Nowadays women and men are meant to be equal.  There is no need to fixate on certain gender identity issues.

4)    Stress Management: Stress, if managed properly, can be a motivating factor for us to move forward.  There are various self-administered methods that can reduce your stress level substantially, i.e.: meditation, prayers, emotional releasing techniques, tapping, etc.  In my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and unconditional Love for Magic Healing, you will learn skills to manage your stress effectively.

5)    Pain Management: If you experience pain, either due to prostate inflammation or injury, you might want to use some non-addictive pain killers to get pain relief while you are on the healing path.  Aspirin or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, or others) have been reported by my clients as being effective for providing some temporary comfort.   

You can also soak in a warm bath (sitz bath), to relax your muscles around the prostate area.  Avoid bicycling or wearing tight jeans so that you will not put pressure on your prostate.

If you read all three articles pertaining to prostatitis so far, you know that a holistic approach to a yeast-free living is the best way to treat or prevent recurrent prostate infections.

According to the Mayo Clinic staff, chronic prostatitis is a recurrent prostate infection, difficult to treat, and its cause is unknown.  Based on my more than 30 years of clinical experience, my observation is that prostatitis is caused by yeast and parasitic infections.  What causes yeast and parasitic infections then? 

There are various causes of prostatitis.  The following are common causes:

1)    Poor Dietary Habit:  The Standard American Diet (SAD), which is loaded with sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and chemicals, feeds the yeasts and parasites in your body and gives the little enemies a chance to have an rock ‘n roll party.   After their feast, they deposit toxins in the body and cause a multitude of infections.  Depending on which part of the body is weak and has little defense, yeasts and parasites will occupy that spot and build their colonies.  If the prostate gland is weak, then prostatitis would be the end result.

2)    Low Immunity: Pre-existing health conditions such as cancer, diabetes, paralysis, etc. weaken the immunity, so the body has a weaker defense when bacteria, viruses, yeasts and parasites invade.

3)    Male Identity Issues: As I have previously indicated, physical symptoms are reflections of psychological and spiritual states.  Struggles with male identity issues can make the prostate prone to infections.

4)    Psychological Stress: Stress, if not managed properly, can cause a multitude of diseases.  If the prostate is a weak area, then infections can show up in that area with stress.

5)    Physical Injury:  This is a relatively rare cause.  If an injury of the prostate or the surrounding area is not healed properly, recurrent yeast and bacterial infections can occur.

Even though physicians are usually unsure about the causes of chronic prostatitis, they tend to use a liberal dose of antibiotics orally or intravenously.  Antibiotics, designed to control infections and inflammations, kill off both bad guys (e.g., bacteria, yeasts, viruses and parasites) and good guys (e.g., friendly bacteria floras).  Hence, they create a vacuum upon the initial use.  At this time the body may experience temporary relief, because there’s nobody home; it’s nice and quiet.  However, this honeymoon does not usually last long.  The good guys take a long time to recover.  However, the bad guys thrive like weeds after a summer rainfall.  A great imbalance is thus created.  Consequently, symptoms of yeast disorder worsen each time after treatment with these potent drugs.

In the next article I will address natural remedies for prostatitis.  Stay tuned.

Prostate is a walnut-sized gland located directly below the bladder in men.  The prostate gland produces fluid (semen) that nourishes and transports sperm. 

Prostatitis is inflammation of the prostate gland. Symptoms of Prostatitis include:

  • Frequent urination, particularly at night (nocturia)
  • Pain or burning sensation on urination (dysuria)
  • Pain in the abdomen, groin or lower back
  • Pain in the area between the scrotum and rectum (perineum)
  • Pain or discomfort of the penis or testicles
  • Painful orgasms (ejaculations)
  • Flu-like symptoms

According to the Mayo clinic staff, prostatitis can be caused by a number of different things. They believed that if it’s caused by a bacterial infection, it can usually be treated successfully by antibiotics. However, 80% of prostatitis isn’t caused by a bacterial infection or a cause is never identified.   Therefore, they suspect that the causes could be immunity or nervous disorders.  Based on my more than 30 years of clinical experience, I have found that these so called “non-bacterial infections” are actually yeast and parasitic infections.  And yes, low immunity and stress are incubators for yeast and parasitic infections!

Prostatitis may have acute or chronic symptoms.  Most cases are chronic and the causes are unknown according to the Mayo Clinic.  They are often referred to as chronic “abacterial prostatitis” or chronic pelvic pain syndrome.  Because of the ambiguity from the medical arena on this subject, you need take full responsibility to heal yourself.  Instead of being experimented on with various kinds of antibiotics which can make your health conditions worse, go for a natural approach.

In the next article, I will address the causes and natural remedies for prostatitis.  Stay tuned.

Menopause is when you have not had a period (or even light spotting) for 12 consecutive months. The menopausal symptoms experienced by most women actually occur during pre- or peri-menopause period.

During the peri-menopause stage, three key hormones such estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone fluctuate, and mostly are on the decline.  Consequently, you may experience various symptoms.  The most common ones are hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, irregular periods, loss of libido, painful intercourse, difficulty concentrating, itchy skin, headaches, bloating, gastro-intestinal disturbances (such as gas), weight gain, hair loss or thinning, light-headedness, depression and anxiety.

As your estrogen levels decline during pre-menopause,your vagina wall will become thinner and weaker. Consequently, it can be easily irritated during intercourse and leave tiny scars or cuts where bacteria and yeasts can flourish.  So, vaginal yeast infections become common symptoms associated with menopause.

Treatment basically consists of regulating the hormonal levels.  Female Vitality is excellent for that purpose.  Female Vitality contains more than 20 ingredients of high quality Chinese herbs such as Ho-Shou-Wu, black cohosh, wild yam, etc. and absorbable vitamins needed for health promotion and maintenance.  The end results:  improved conditions for your hair, nail and skin, increased mental clarity, uplifted mood, productivity and sexual energy.

Based on my more than 30 years of clinical experience, I have found that women who do not have a healthy lifestyle tend to suffer more menopausal symptoms.  For example, when sugar consumption is high, episodes of hot flashes also increase. Therefore, it’s important to follow a yeast-free nutritional program that contains no sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and chemicals.  It comes to a conscious decision between following the yeast-free nutritional program, or suffering from various menopausal symptoms.  If you would like to find out more about what you should eat (and what to avoid), follow the recipes in my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

If you have excess toxins in your body which acerbate the menopausal symptoms, consider our Herbal Detox program (consisting of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) to remove the toxins. 

Lifestyle changes are also important for promoting a healthy menopausal process. These include regular exercise, becoming a non-smoker, and getting physically and mentally fit.  To promote your mental health, I encourage you to follow the guidelines in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing

The symptoms of menopause usually last for the whole menopause transition (until the mid 50s), but some women may experience them for the rest of their lives.  Therefore, it’s important to adopt a holistic approach to eradicate or prevent menopausal symptoms.

In Part 1 of this article, I addressed three natural remedies for Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS), including yeast-free nutrition, herbal detox, and hormonal regeneration.  A yeast-free nutritional approach will prevent allergens such as simple sugars, dairy, wheat, and yeasts from entering the body.  In the pre-menstrual period, I recommended to increase the intake of complex carbohydrates and crucifers such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and brussel sprouts.  This type of food will help reduce the amount of hormones such as prostaglandin, estrogen, progesterone and prolactin, and thus reduce water retention, bloating, weight gain, and mood swings.

If you want to learn more about what you can eat and what you should avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook: Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.   Secondly, go on our Herbal Detox (consisting of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea ) and hormonal regeneration product with Female Vitality.  Our Herbal Detox program removes excess yeasts and parasites, thus cleaning up existing toxins.  Female Vitality balances the female hormonal system and allows the female hormones to work for you instead of against you.

The following are additional natural remedies for PMS:

1)    Exercise:

Exercise is particularly helpful with PMS because it generates endorphins, a morphine from within.  Endorphin is an opium-like, natural substance which reduces pain and gives a calm, high feeling (without the use of drugs)!  Again, don’t wait until you are in the middle of PMS to exercise.  Do 30 minutes of slow walking every day.  This type of exercise will improve your blood circulation and thus reduce the tendency of water retention and muscle aches.  The heavy feeling and cramps in your pelvic area can also be reduced or eliminated.  Regular exercise can also strengthen the muscle tone in your lower abdomen and thus increase the tolerance for pain or discomfort.  A side benefit is that it also helps you become a better lover when you have tight, instead of loose, muscles.  And remember, slow walking is free of charge! 

 2)    Hands-On Healing:

Hands-on healing techniques such as therapeutic touch and gentle chiropractic adjustment known as cranio-sacral technique can be very soothing during the onset of PMS.   If you feel too uncomfortable to have anyone touch you while experiencing severe cramps, just put your hand(s) on the area that is cramping, such as the lower abdomen or hip areas.  The healing energy in your own hands can reduce the cramps and give some relief to pain.   You can do this while lying down or sitting up, such as while driving. 

 3)    Stress Management:

Women who are under heavy emotional stress often suffer from more PMS.  Your body and mind affect each other at all times.  Emotional stress can cause many kinds of physical problems including PMS.  Remember, all physical illnesses have symbolic meanings.  PMS involves the female reproductive system. It requires the examination of emotional issues concerning one’s femininity.  A woman with a positive self-image usually takes good care of herself and does not give PMS a chance to creep in or sustain itself. 

 4)    Sexercise:

The Chinese have long believed that if a young woman has PMS, she will grow out of it after she is married.  Why?  Sexercise! 

 Sex is the best remedy for PMS.  Good sex increases self-esteem and improves blood circulation.  When you enjoy good quality and quantity of sex with the right partner, you feel loved and energized.

Women who suffer from PMS or menopause usually are sexually inactive whether they are married or not.  Sexual desire and potency do not have to decline with age.  Some of my clients enjoy frequent sex (at least three or four times a week) in their 80s!  You are never too old or too tired for sex!  Remember two principles: 1) you either use it or lose it; and 2) practice makes perfect!   When you learn to enjoy sex on a regular basis, you will learn to enjoy being a female.  Also remember, Female Vitality can help improve sexual function.  When you enjoy being a female or being who you are, chances are you will say goodbye to PMS!
