Q.        I am 52 years old.  I did not have period for about a year.  All of a sudden, I had a good amount of period last month, then it stopped.  I am glad it did.  However, my menopausal symptoms had increased.  They include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, loss of sexual drive, weight gain, depression and extreme fatigue.  How much longer would I suffer from these symptoms?  Can you recommend holistic treatment for them?

A.        The symptoms you described are typical menopausal symptoms.  With proper treatment, these menopausal symptoms can be controlled.  Otherwise, they can linger for the rest of your life.  The following holistic treatment methods are most effective for menopause according to my clinical experience:

1.  Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program:

When you follow my “Eight Commandments:” no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals, your symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings will be under control.

2.  Herbal Therapy:

Take the following formulas that I formulated for you to regain your health. For example: Take the Herbal Detox Package (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) for removing yeasts, parasites, and toxins; and Female Vitality for balancing hormones such as estrogen to regain your sexual libido, increase your energy, and uplift your depression.  I also recommend our Fitness Plus (a fat burner) for weight control.

3.  Stress Management:

Meditate daily to reduce your day-to-day-stress.  Go to my website: www.drjsbest.com  to download a FREE 10-minute meditation guide.  If you practice daily, you will enjoy peace and harmony in your life whether you are in menopause or not.

4. Regular Exercise:

Regular exercise improves blood circulation, and gives you a regular supply of endorphins (a natural chemical that can make you feel calm and happy).  Regular exercise also burns calories and reduces weight.  If you experience extreme fatigue, just start slow walking or in-place jogging for five minutes, and gradually build up.

When you adopt the above holistic approach, you will be able to reduce or eliminate menopausal symptoms and enjoy the absence of monthly inconvenience!

I have been feeling sluggish for years.  Fatigue, mind fog, and allergies had contributed to my loss of libido.  I have been reading Dr. J’s articles in a holistic magazine.  I am glad that I finally had the courage to call her.  Dr. J put me on Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) and Male Vitality.

I changed my poor diet and follow her nutritional program in the yeast-free cookbook (Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking).  I also learned to manage stress better by using the techniques in another book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.)

I have been on Dr. J’s regimen for three months now.  My energy level has increased, mental concentration has improved, and allergy symptoms such as sinus congestion are clearing up.  Most of all, I regained my sexual interest.  I am dating again!!!

I just love Dr. J’s programs!  I was referred to her because I did not have period for years (amenorrhea) and I was too young to go through menopause.  I would like to have a second child if I could, so I am very committed.  Dr. J’s put me on Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Controland Cleansing-Balance Tea) and Hormonal Regeneration (Female Vitality) programs.

The first few weeks I went through several episodes of cleansing crisis.  I had frequent headaches and body aches.  As time goes by, my cleansing symptoms are subsiding, and each time it gets easier and easier like Dr. J had informed me.  In less than a month, I got my period!  I am ovulating and I know I am much healthier if I got pregnant.  I am now adding Weight Management program to lose about 15 pounds.  I just love the Herbal Cocktail smoothie with rice milk and one of the Dr. J recommended fruits.  It’s so delicious, and it also curbs my appetite and takes away my sugar craving. 

I follow the guidelines very closely in Dr. J’s both books (Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healingand Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking).  The yeast-free nutritional program really helps me to have better control of eating.  I would start the fat burner (Fitness Plus) when I receive the shipment.

Even though Dr. J does not guarantee that I would get pregnant, I feel so much healthier and happier.  Thank you very much Dr. J!

Q.        Can oral sex cause yeast infections or bladder infections?  Can antibiotics or anti-fungal drugs help?  I have yeast infection symptoms such as redness and itching every time I receive oral sex from my boyfriend.  Occasionally I also get bladder infections.  My doctor gave me Diflucan and antibiotics.  But the redness and itching keep coming back, and it does not prevent bladder infections.  What should I do?

A.        Oral sex can cause recurrent yeast infections and/or bladder infections if your boyfriend has yeast infections.  Like I indicated in previous articles, man and woman have “equal opportunity” to contract yeast infections.  You both need to be treated; otherwise, you two can pass yeast infections back and forth to each other.

Antibiotics may stop bladder infections temporarily, but they cause yeast overgrowth and makes the situation worse.  Diflucan or any anti-fungal drugs are chemicals that clog your liver and kidneys.  They may temporarily inhibit the symptoms, but do not cleanse the toxins.

Here are my recommendations:

  1. Herbal Therapy:

Take our Herbal Detox program: Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea, to remove excess yeasts, parasites, and toxins.  You and your boyfriend need to take the full dosage until you are symptom-free.  Afterwards, stay on the maintenance dosage for prevention.

  1. Yeast-Free Nutritional Program:

Try to adhere to a yeast-free nutritional program that contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  My clients call it “Dr. J’s Eight Commandments”.  It may be a tall order,  because most people are used to the Standard American Diet (SAD) that is loaded with no-no’s.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

  1. Good Hygiene:

Abstain from oral sex for a while.   Remember, both of you need to be treated.  When you are ready to try it again, make sure that both of you take a shower, brush your teeth, and scrape your tongues.  Mouthwash is recommended.  A good hygiene can minimize the chances for you to contract yeast and/or bladder infections.  Have you heard of the expression, “Being clean is sexy”?

  1. Topical Treatment:

To get some temporary relief, use a cotton ball soaked with Witch Hazel to dab on affected areas.  When the solution is dry, smear Vitamin E oil on it.  That will stop the itching temporarily.  Make sure you wear surgical gloves to prevent spreading.

  1. Stress Management:

Not everyone receiving oral sex will contract yeast and/or bladder infections.  Infections occur when your immune system is weak.  The above regimens will strengthen your immune system from a physical perspective.  You will also need to remove your mental toxins as well.  Read my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.  It gives you a few tools to manage your stress effectively.  You can also consider private consultation sessions with myself.

Q.        I just went through menopause.  My husband and I used to enjoy sex.  Lately I feel pain during the intercourse and burning sensation after sex.  I also crave sugar like mad.  I don’t like to take drugs.  What can I do to get rid of these symptoms?

A.        It sounds like both you and your husband have yeast infections.  For you, yeast infections can make your vaginal tissue raw and sensitive to friction.  Decrease of estrogen can also cause dryness and painful intercourse.  If you feel the burning sensation, it is probably due to the possibility that your husband’s semen is loaded with yeasts.

In this case both you and your husband need to be treated.  Otherwise, you would be giving yeast infections back and forth to each other.

Here are my recommendations:

  1. Yeast-Free Nutrition:

This is a nutritional program you and your husband need to adhere to as much as you can for life.  It contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemical.  All of these items will feed the yeasts and parasites, clog your liver and kidneys, and thus worsen the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

  1. Herbal Therapy:

Both you and your husband will benefit from our Herbal Detox: Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance TeaYeast-Para Control is designed to remove excess yeasts, parasites, and toxins.  Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to flush the debris Yeast-Para Control creates while also cleansing the liver and kidneys.

Furthermore, consider Female Vitality for hormonal regeneration.  Your estrogen level can decrease after menopause.  Female Vitality can balance your female hormones and make your vaginal walls moister.

Take Herbal Cocktail for sugar craving. Herbal Cocktail is a high-protein herbal drink that nourishes your body and starves yeasts and parasites.  Your sugar craving would be stopped with regular consumption of Herbal Cocktail.

  1. Stress Management:

The sexiest organ is your brain.  If you and your husband have unresolved psychological issues, this can cause problems in the bedroom.  Read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing. It gives you a few tools to manage stress more effectively.  If you want to consider psychological counseling, the following is the contact information.

In order to control your weight permanently, you need to nourish your body, mind, and spirit on a consistent basis.  As described in the previous article,  it’s important to follow a yeast-free nutritional program so your body will not suffer new assaults.   It’s also important to use Herbal Cocktail to curb your appetitite and sugar craving, Fitness Regular as a fat blocker, and Fitness Plus as a fat burner.

The following strategies will help you manage your stress and balance your spirit effectively:

Manage Your Stress Effectively:

Psychological stress, if managed properly, can be motivating and beneficial.  The first step is to accept instead of resist stress.  Accept the fact that you are being challenged and that every challenge gives you an opportunity to grow and expand.   

Life is like school: before you can obtain a diploma or degree, you must be willing and able to do your homework and pass a series of tests.  The good news is that even if you fail, the universe will provide you with unlimited opportunities to go through the tests again and again until you past them!  Therefore, your clock is not ticking.  Time is irrelevant!

Follow the Emotion Releasing Technique instructions in Chapter 11 of Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, to release your psychological toxins and allow yourself to move on with your life with a clean slate.  Some self-administered techniques such as  self-hypnosis, meditation, prayers and affirmations can also be helpful in reducing stress physically and psychologically.  If psychological stress becomes paralyzing, then you should seek competent professional help.

Restore Spiritual Balance:

Spiritually speaking, we all chose our destiny when we were born into this life.  No matter what kind of life situation we are in, we are given an opportunity to prove that we have the strength, tenacity, wisdom and faith to overcome obstacles and excel. 

The only way to get out of the rut of a dysfunctional life situation is to exercise your unconditional love and wisdom.

Use the principles described in Chapter 11 of Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing to understand, accept, forgive and release.  Once you can release the negative emotions toward those who have done you wrong, you can release the negative past that has been haunting you.  When you no longer carry the old baggage, you no longer carry the excess weight!  Love and respect yourself as the most unique, creative and miraculous person in the world.  If you cannot accomplish this on your own, seeking help from a spiritually-oriented, well-grounded therapist can be fruitful.

Exercise Daily:

One last thing I want to stress is the importance of exercising daily.  It’s common sense that exercise improves your blood circulation,  brings more oxygen to your body cells, burns calories, and generates endorphins.  Endorphins are natural hormones, and are considered as morphine from within.  Morphine is a pain killer.  If you experience stiffness or arthritic pain, exercise will reduce or eliminate the aches and pains.   From a psychological perspective, endorphins also gives you calm, high feelings.  Because these feelings don’t last, you need to exercise everyday to generate new supplies of endorphins.

You might say, “I don’t have the membership to a gym!”  You can exercise without a gym. You can do slow walking in your neighborhood or in a park for 30 minutes a day, or you may jog in place for 10 minutes a day to start.  When there is a will, there is a way! 

Your weight and health problems did not occur overnight.  Naturally, becoming trim and getting well takes time.  Only your complete understanding of the illness and wellness process, as well as commitment and patience, will bring you positive and permanent results!

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.

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!

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!
