For every health problem, there is a natural solution!  The following are some natural, drug-free remedies for Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS):

1.  Yeast-Free Nutritional Approach:

As you can see, yeast disorders can exacerbate a lot of physical and emotional illnesses.   In the case of PMS, because of the particular tendency toward sugar cravings, it is of ultimate importance to stay on a yeast-free nutritional program if you want to gain control.  Don’t wait until the premenstrual period to get on the yeast-free nutritional program.  The yeast-free nutritional program (containing no sugar, dairy, wheat. yeasts, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and chemicals) should be followed all year long to prevent the occurrence of PMS.  Follow the cooking principles in my cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking to learn more about what you can eat, and what you should avoid.  The following are some important highlights:

 a)    Feed your body with complex carbohydrates instead of simple sugars.  Complex carbohydrates raise the level of a chemical in the brain called serotonin.  Serotonin elevates mood and regulates sleep.

b)    Your daily diet should contain at least 40% complex carbohydrates, less than 20% protein, and less than 20% fat.   During your premenstrual period, you may increase your complex carbohydrate intake and reduce that of protein, for protein may interfere with serotonin synthesis.

c)    Crucifers such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts are rich in dietary indoles, which are excellent in removing the excessive hormones mentioned above.  Broccoli is also rich in absorbable calcium, which is very helpful in strengthening the bones.

2.    Herbal Therapy:

Most people who suffer from a severe case of PMS also have a history of yeast disorders and drug, alcohol or nicotine addiction.  It is important, therefore, to cleanse the accumulated toxins in the body in order for it to function properly.  Our Herbal Detox program consisting of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea  is a good choice for detox during PMS or all year round.  Yeast-Para Control is designed to remove excess yeasts and parasites in your body, and Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to flush out the “debris”, especially from your liver and kidneys.  These two formulas work hand in hand to keep your body clean and your immunity strong.  For the case of PMS, these formulas will greatly reduce sugar craving caused by the demands of yeast and parasites.

In addition, Female Vitality is very effective in balancing female hormones such as estrogen, progesterone and prolactin.  Thus, symptoms such as blood volume increase, bloatedness, water retention, and mood swings will be controlled.  Female Vitality also improves mental clarity and uplifts mood and productivity.

In part 2 of this article, I will address more self-administered, natural remedies for PMS, including exercise, Hands on Healing, stress management, and sexercise.  Stay tuned!

Premenstrual Syndrome is a cluster of symptoms experienced by women about seven to ten days before their period.  These symptoms include: headaches, poor mental concentration, mood swings, depression, anxiety, irritability, crying spells, bloatedness, breast tenderness, fatigue, sugar cravings, water retention, muscle aches in the lower extremities, pelvic discomfort or pain, insomnia, skin breakout, weight gain and loss of sexual desire.

From puberty to menopause, every woman experiences premenstrual syndrome at one time or another, to a lesser or greater degree.  About 40% of women experience noticeable and consistent symptoms.  Some are so severe that every month they are paralyzed by pain and emotional disturbance.

Premenstrual syndrome can also affect relationships.  One time a husband brought in his wife to me and said, “You fix my wife. Otherwise, either she will kill me, or I will kill her!”  The wife nodded her head and agreed. 

Causes of PMS: 

During the premenstrual period, there are biochemical changes in a woman’s body.  Hormones such as prostaglandin, estrogen, progesterone and prolactin escalate.  These hormones increase the blood volume.  Consequently, symptoms of water retention, bloatedness, weight gain, sugar cravings and mood swings follow. 

Why sugar cravings?  When blood volume increases, the amount of blood sugar also increases.  Remember, your little friends, yeasts, are always waiting for an opportunity to have a party.  The increased amount of blood sugar is just what they need!

After they are well fed with sugar, they want more!  They cry out, “Feed me!  Feed me!”  If you don’t understand what is going on, and feed them with more sugar or chocolate, then you become the victim of a losing battle!  Yeast overgrowth symptoms will thus take a toll on you.

What are the causes of all these hormonal changes?  Why is it that some women are debilitated every month, but others don’t even know they’ve got their periods until their panties are stained?  It is the same old story: malnutrition and long term physical and emotional stress. In the next few articles I will address the treatment of this debilitating health condition.  Stay tuned.

Here is a recipe for sea vegetable lovers.  Sea vegetables are excellent natural source of iodine.  If you consume sea vegetables regularly, you will not need to worry about taking potassium iodine (KI) for severe radiation exposure.  I just made a pot of Tofu-Seaweed Soup last evening.  Both my stomach and thyroid are happy ….

Tofu-Seaweed Soup

 Ingredients:

1.  1/2 tub hard tofu

2.  2 sheets dry seaweed (flaky type for wrapping sushi) or ½ cup of dry shredded kelp

3.  1/2 cup carrots, sliced

4.  1 slice ginger

5.  A dash of sea salt

6.  A sprinkle of unprocessed sesame oil

7.  3 cups purified water                                                 

Yield: 4 servings

Procedure:

1.  Cut ginger into thin strips.  Put it in 3 cups of purified water together with peeled and sliced carrots and a dash of sea salt in a stainless steel or ceramic pot.  Boil the content on high heat.

2.  Rinse off water from the tub and cut tofu into about one-inch long, 1/2-inch wide and 1/2-inch thick dice.  (Put some purified water in the tub and save the leftover tofu in the refrigerator.  Use the leftover tofu within three days.)

3.  Bring the content to boil, and put in tofu.  Cut flaky seaweed into pieces (or tear with your fingers) and drop them into the soup. 

4.  Add a sprinkle of unprocessed sesame oil, and stir gently.   Serve with brown rice and other dishes.

Please note:

If you use shredded dry kelp, soak it in purified water for about 10 minutes. Throw away the soaking water, rinse well, and boil it with purified water, shredded ginger, sea salt.   Bring it to boil on high heat, then add sliced carrots, and then add diced tofu and bring it boil again.  Stir gently.  Sprinkle some unprocessed sesame oil.   Mmmmm ….  Yum Yum ….

Nutritional Benefits:

This dish is very rich in protein and minerals, especially iodine.  Iodine is excellent for metabolic function of the thyroid.  It is also helpful for growing healthy hair, skin and nails.  For those of you who don’t mind the fishy taste of seaweed, this dish is great for weight watchers because it is low in calories, rich in protein and great for metabolic function!

There can be allergic reactions to consuming iodine.  Iodine is basically poisonous.  Chinese medicinal lore cautions not to consume iodine and persimmon (a fruit) together; otherwise it may cause instant death.

Large doses of potassium iodide (130 mg/day) may be consummed by people with cases of large amounts of radiation exposure.  Potassium iodide should not be taken for long periods of time at that dosage.   Do no exceed 10 days of potassium iodide consumption unless you are near a failed nuclear reactor.

Some people may have a potential allergic reaction at 130 mg/day, so it would be best to take a smaller dose initially and build up the dosage over a few days. If you are certain you’ve had a large amount of exposure to radiation, it might be worth risking the allergic reaction than the thyroid cancer.

Excessive iodine/iodide can be dangerous. Symptoms of iodine poisoning include fast heart rate, skin irritation, thinning of secretions (watery eyes, nose or saliva), metallic taste in the mouth, fever, acne, nervousness and headache. If symptoms of iodine poisoning occur, discontinue immediately and consult with your health practitioner.  Usually calcium can be a good antidote.

For people who are allergic to iodine, don’t take iodine orally to prevent thyroid cancer.  Instead, use tincture of iodine to swab the throat and abdomen area.  That can provide some protection against thyroid cancer if a nuclear accident occurs near you and the radiation contains radioactive iodine.

Sea vegetables are excellent natural sources of iodine.  For example, one table spoon of kelp (seaweed) yields approximately 12 mg of iodine.  The daily recommended dosage is only 150 mcg (1mg = 1,000 mcg).  Therefore, eating sea vegetables regularly will give you plenty of iodine to protect you against thyroid cancer due to a large amount of radiation exposure.

Q.       I have been dealing with skin issues on my penis for about 15 years (psoriasis, dermatitis, herpes, and warts) and have tried all kinds of creams (taclonex, protopic, laser treatments).  My biggest concern is getting penile cancer.  Do you have any suggestions?

A.       What you have described are common male yeast infection symptoms.  I would suggest adopting a holistic approach – a lifestyle called “yeast-free living”.  First, remove the fear of getting cancer.  Fear only attracts what you don’t want.  Even if you have cancer, there are drug-free treatments to reduce or eliminate symptoms.

Here are some tips for treating male genital yeast infections:

1)    Use a cotton ball and Witch Hazel to clean the affected area.  Then use Vitamin E oil to smear on top of the skin.  Make sure that you wear surgical gloves to prevent spreading.  If you cannot find liquid Vitamin E oil, just break the foot-ball shaped Vitamin E soft jell, and smear the content on the affected skin.  Do this as often as you can, and at least once a day before bed. 

2)    Abstain from sex during the outbreak of herpes, warts, psoriasis, or any kind of dermatitis.  All these genital skin infections are yeast-related, and they are sexually transmittable.  Even if you are symptom-free, you will want to wear a condom to protect your partner, or to protect yourself from being re-infected by your partner.

3)    Before you have sex with a new partner, you always want to disclose what you have.  Your potential partner can then make an informed decision whether s/he want to be involved with you sexually.  I have counseled many angry and regretful couples because the “truth” was not disclosed beforehand.

4)    Follow a yeast-free nutritional program consisting of no sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and chemicals (“Dr. J’s Eight Commandments” as detailed in my cookbook, Healthy & Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast CookingStaying away from the Standard American Diet (SAD) will nourish your body and starve yeasts and parasites that are causing you long-term skin infections. 

5)    Get on our Herbal Detox program (consisting of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea).  Take full dosage of Yeast-Para Control until symptoms subsides.  You can even increase the dosage up to 15 capsules a day.  Yeast-Para Control removes excess yeasts and parasites in your body and allows your body’s innate intelligence to heal you.  Drink the Cleansing-Balance Tea throughout the day (one tea bag makes six cups) to cleanse your liver and kidneys and remove toxins. 

6)    Stress is the key factor contributing to a chronic case of yeast and parasitic infections.  Read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing and learn stress management techniques such as 10-minutes meditation, Emotional Releasing Technique, special prayers and affirmations.

7)    From an emotional perspective, genital herpes and warts are reflections of sexual guilt or sexual identity issues.  Consider some consultation sessions to uproot the causes.

I offer consultation on yeast-free nutrition, Chinese Herbal Detox, Hormonal Balance, Weight Control, stress management, and spiritual counseling on the phone or Skype.  For an appointment, please call 1-800-715-3053 or send an e-mail to drj@drjsbest.com.

Q.        I had digestion problems all my life. I have IBS on the constipation side and I am not able to have any milk products. I cramp up and the gas just sits in my digestion. I have gone to many doctors and they want me to go on medical drugs and I don’t like taking them. I would never get well by eating right and do it natural. Please I need some advice. I am so lost. Thank you for listening to me.  

A.         Irritated Bowel Syndrome (IBS) consists of a cluster of digestive tract symptoms including alternation of constipation and diarrhea, flatulence (gas), gas pain, fatigue, foggy mind, depression, etc.  The major causes of IBS are the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites, and chronic stress.

As in the articles I posted before, and as detailed in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are physical and psychological causes of yeasts and parasitic infections.

Physical causes include indulgence in yeast-favorite food (Standard American Diet – SAD) containing sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and chemicals, excessive use of antibiotics, lack of exercise, pre-existing illnesses, poor hygiene, sexual contact and the breakdown of the immune system.  Psychological causes include unfinished business, boredom, and “Busy-Taking-Care-of-Others Syndrome”.  Psychological stress is actually the primary cause of yeast disorders. 

To effectively treat Irritated Bowel Syndrome (IBS), I would suggest using a holistic approach.  Adopt a yeast-free nutritional program that contains no sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and chemicals.  The above no-no’s are “Dr. J’s Eight Commandments” as detailed in my cookbook, Healthy & Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking A yeast-free nutritional program will nourish your body and starve the yeasts and parasites –your little enemies within. 

Our Herbal Detox Program consisting of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea is highly effective in combatting IBS.  Yeast-Para Control will remove excess yeasts and parasites in your body, and allow your body’s innate intelligence to heal you.  Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to cleanse your liver and kidneys so that toxins will not build up in your body.  The function of Yeast-Para Control is like a scrub for the toilet, and that of Cleansing-Balance Tea is the flushing of the toilet.  You can also add Herbal Cocktail, a high-protein herbal drink, to nourish your body that is starving for nutrients.

On the psychological perspective, one should learn to effectively manage one’s stress.  In my book: Breaking the Yeast curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, one can learn valuable techniques such as 10-minute meditation, Emotional Releasing Technique, special prayers, and affirmations. 

I offer consultation on yeast-free nutrition, Chinese Herbal Detox, Hormonal Balance, and Weight Control on the phone or Skype.  For an appointment, please call 1-800-715-3053 or send an e-mail to drj@drjsbest.com.

Healthy regards,

Dr. J
