sweet toothQ.        I have a terrible sweet tooth, like the size of King Kong. How can I correct it?

A.        Sugar craving is one of the symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections.  When yeasts and parasites hook onto your mucous membranes and suck your nutrients, they scream, “Feed me more!  Feed Me more!” If you don’t know what’s going on, you just feed them with sugary food every time they scream for it.  If not treated properly, over eating sugar can evolve into diabetes or uncontrollable weight gain.

Follow these steps:

1)    Change your dietary habits

Learn what to eat and what to avoid so that you can starve your little enemies, yeasts and parasites, and feed your body.  My yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking gives you recipes following my anti-yeast cooking principles: no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  You’ll receive as much benefit as the effort you put in.  Don’t wait for the perfect time.  Perfect time never comes!  Once you learn to feed your body with nourishing food and starve the yeasts and parasites, sugar-craving symptoms will be greatly reduced.

2)    Herbal Therapy

If you have severe symptoms of sugar craving, I would recommend taking our Herbal Detox Program and Herbal Cocktail to speed up the process. Yeast-Para Control removes excess yeasts and parasites quickly, and Cleansing-Balance Tea flushes the debris that Yeast-Para Control creates.  Herbal Cocktail nourishes your body and starves yeasts and parasites.

3)    Stress Management

Stress is part of life.  When you manage your stress effectively, stress    can propel you towards higher levels of success.  On the other hand, you might use stress as an excuse to indulge yourself in emotional eating, including eating sugary food.  In my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are details regarding tools you can use to manage your stress.  They include meditation, prayers, affirmation, etc.  I would encourage you to go to my website: www.drjsbest.com to download the Ten-minute Meditation Guide for free and meditate every day to reduce your day-to-day stress.

Q.  There is a lot of conflicting information on the Internet regarding Candida Cleansing Diet, what is your opinion on this?

A.  Indeed, it’s like a jungle out there in terms of information regarding the candida cleansing diet.   Oftentimes you are confused about what you can eat and what you should avoid when you try to heal yourself from candidiasis, or yeast and parasitic infections.

First of all, you need to understand that candida is a member of the yeast family.  Candida alone has 40 to 50 strains that are harmful to your health.  When yeasts are present, parasites also thrive.  I call them Siamese Twins.  Therefore, I would refer to yeast and parasite cleanse in this Q&A.

Also, the word “diet” seems to denote the meaning of being “limited” and “short term.”  Therefore, I prefer to call it an “Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program” because you can follow the nutritional principles for life to maintain optimal health.  The anti-yeast nutritional program I recommend contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeast, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals.   I developed these “Eight Commandments” after I conquered a severe case of yeast and parasitic infection, and remained symptom-free for several decades.

In my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking, you will find anti-yeast nutritional principles and recipes that nourish your body, but starve the yeasts and parasites.  The “Eight Commandments” detailed in my anti-yeast cookbook have stood the test of time.  My many clients and myself have been able to get well and stay well because of these anti-yeast nutritional principles.

When your immune system is strong, you can re-introduce food items that are on the no-no list if you go for moderation.   Occasionally, when I indulged on the no-no foods, I had to accept the consequences for it.  For example, if I had a small slice of ultra-sweet fruits such as watermelon, my body can handle it.  However, when I had a bigger slice, I would suffer from sugar headaches for a few days.  It becomes a matter of choice of what consequences you would accept when you deviate from my anti-yeast nutritional principles.

Also, please be aware that diet alone will not cure you when you suffer from chronic yeast and parasitic infections.  You do need to consider herbal therapy to eliminate excess yeasts and parasites quickly so that your body’s innate intelligence can be activated and healing can take place.  I formulated Yeast-Para Control to remove yeasts and parasites simultaneously.  Because yeasts and parasites go hand in hand, if you only treat yeast or only treat parasitic infection, sooner or later, both yeasts and parasites will come back together to “haunt” you.

I also formulated Cleansing-Balance Tea to flush the debris created by Yeast-Para Control.  It’s like this: Yeast-Para Control would scrub the toilet, and Cleansing-Balance Tea would flush the toilet.  When you combine these two formulas (Herbal Detox), together with the anti-yeast nutritional program, your body would begin to heal quickly.

As I stated in previous publications, yeasts and parasites are the “root of all evil” when health is concerned, and stress is the core of these roots.  Therefore, if you want to have long-lasting results, you must manage your stress effectively.  In my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are several techniques you can use to reduce your stress.  They include meditation, releasing deep-rooted negative emotions, prayers, and affirmations.  To start, you may go to our website: www.drjsbest.com to download a free 10-Minute Meditation Guide to reduce stress and increase your general wellbeing.

leaky gutWhat is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

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.

Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome:

According to my clinical experience, leaky gut syndrome is a cluster of symptoms caused by the digestive tract inflammation.  They include: food allergies, 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, Crohn’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.  So, 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 vampire-like 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, but they also damage the lining of the walls of the Gastric-intestinal Tract.

2)    Poor dietary habit:

The 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, and guilt is like driving a car with the hand-break on.  It causes wear and tear on 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 a variety of illnesses.  That which is eating you psychologically is also eating you physically.

4)    Liberal use of antibiotics and other potent drugs:

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.  In fact, excessive use of antibiotics and cortisone 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 no time to come back; while the “good guys” take a long time to rebuild.  Yeasts are airborne, and they are “omnipresent.”  They can re-enter your weak body anywhere, anytime.  Thus, an imbalance is created.   A vicious circle ensues.   To make the situation more complicated, when yeasts are present, parasites also thrive because of their symbiotic relationships.   As I explained in previous articles, when yeasts ferment, they create a chemical substance called “propyl alcohol” and that substance feeds parasites.  To return the favor, parasites use their body surface as a platform for yeasts to grow and expand.

When people develop leaky gut syndrome, usually they encounter all the factors I described above.  Leaky gut syndrome can be repaired if you employ a holistic approach, and be patient with yourself, and with your life!

In the next article, I will discuss the holistic treatment to repair leaky gut syndrome.  Stay tuned.

hurricane-sandy-oct-25As you all know, hurricane Sandy has brought much environmental destruction.   However, what you may not know is that Sandy also has caused many people to suffer from yeast and parasitic infections.

If you have read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, you would discover that I was born during the “Typhoon” (hurricane) season, and that I was born with the “yeast curse.”

I have received several calls from clients living in the New York area after super storm Sandy.  They complained about fatigue, mind fog, digestive problems, allergies, depression, headaches, etc.  Most of them can trace back to the origin of these health issues:  The drinking water at home or the restaurants was contaminated with parasite giardia.  Yeasts were overgrown inside and outside their bodies.

They were so happy to get on our Herbal Detox program.

If you have any questions, please call me at my direct line (818) 472-2213.  We also offer 10% discount on our herbal products for all of you who were affected by the aftermath of Sandy.

Q.         Why are some people more prone to candidiasis (yeast infections) than others?

A.         This is a good question!  Sometimes you feel “it’s not fair” that others are eating sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, and other yeast-favorite food, and yet they don’t have candidiasis.  On the contrary, you have to watch everything you eat, and yet, you still suffer from the symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections.

The answer is actually very simple.  The stress level everybody perceived in life determines your susceptibility to yeast and parasitic infections.  As I detailed in my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, “so far as physical health is concerned, yeast and parasitic infections are the roots of all evil; and psychological stress is the core of these roots!”  Stress suppresses your immunity.  When your immunity is compromised, all kinds of microbial organisms such as yeasts, parasites, bacteria, and viruses can act up and create symptoms from head to toe.

An anti-yeast nutritional program is an important way to prevent new assault on your body.  However, the existing little enemies in your body require a vigorous holistic approach to make them surrender.  In addition to dietary change, stress management should be your top priority.

Meditation, prayers, affirmations, chanting, etc. all can help reduce your stress.  Go to my website: www.drjsbest.com to claim a FREE gift I have for you: 10-minute meditation.  Meditate daily, even several times a day, and you will experience more peace, harmony, health, and happiness.  If you need professional help, just call me at 818-472-2213 or 800-715-3053 for a consultation appointment.

If you are on budget, you can start with reading my books, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, and
.  I would also recommend our Herbal Detox program.  For less than $3 a day, you will be able to build up your immunity immediately and consistently.

Q.        Are laboratory tests accurate in detecting the presence of yeasts and parasites?

A.        Modern technology is improving in terms of detecting the presence of yeasts and parasites.  However, most laboratory tests and x-rays cannot do the job accurately.   Even though the recent development of DNA testing is far superior to all previous tests, the scope is limited.  Why?  Yeasts and parasites have more than 250,000 species.  Candida albicans alone has a family of more than 40 strains of harmful yeasts.  No test up to date can detect them all!

Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience, the best assessment of yeast and parasitic infections is the observation of the eyes, skin, tongue and knowledge of a detailed health history.   Most importantly, when my clients are on our Herbal Detox program, within days they will see the “evidence” in the toilet such as:

Debris of Yeasts

Cloudy or mucousy materials in the urine or stool.  Some of my clients described them as “the Milky Way” or “clouds under the water.”

Eggs of Parasites:

They look like sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, undigested brown rice, or broken corn.  You can see them in your stool or menstrual blood clots.

Mature Worms:

They come in various sizes, shapes and colors.  Pinworms appear to be fibers sticking out of your stool.  Hook worms look like spaghetti or string cheese.  Flat worms look like broken tree leaves dancing in the toilet when you flush it.

In other words, your toilet is your best laboratory!

In the previous two articles, I pointed out that yeast and parasitic infections are a global epidemic.  I also highlighted the major symptoms and causes.  To get more detailed information, you can review my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

In this article, I will address natural, drug-free treatment for yeast and parasitic infections based on my more than 30 years of clinical experience working with people from all walks of life:

1)    Anti-Yeast Nutrition:

For starters, adopt an Anti-Yeast Nutritional program for life.  This nutritional program contains 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.”  Examples of great recipes for this program can be found in my cookbook: Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.  This program is designed to starve the yeasts and parasites, nourish your body with good nutrients, and prevent new toxins from being created and built up in your body.

2)    Herbal Therapy to Remove Excess Yeasts And Parasites:

When you abuse or misuse your body for a long time, toxins would build up and may cause a multitude of health issues as described in the previous article.  One of the quickest ways to remove these toxins is using our Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) that I formulated specifically for my clients.  Yeast-Para Control scrubs the toilet, and Cleansing-Balance Tea is like flushing the toilet.  The two formulas combined works wonders in removing yeasts and parasites simultaneously from your body, improving your immunity.  When your immunity is strong, you would be able to co-exist with your little enemies harmoniously.

3)    Manage Your Stress Effectively:

Stress is a part of life. If managed effectively, stress can propel you to a higher level of success or awakening.   Otherwise, stress can deplete your immunity and allow yeasts and parasites to overgrow.  Many ways lead to Rome.  Whatever works to release stress for you should be continued.  For myself and many of my clients, the combination of prayers (or chanting), affirmations, Vitamin “N” (N for nature), slow walking and 10-minute meditation works well to relieve stress.  You can go to my website: www.drjsbest.com to download the 10-meditation guide for FREE!  This is an invaluable gift that would benefit you for life if you use it!

4)    Exercise to Prevent Yeast and Parasitic Infections:

As stated in the previous article, yeasts and parasites love a still environment.  That’s why you might have symptoms such as sleep disorders, sinus congestion, snoring, or sleep apnea at night when you are relatively immobile.  People in the wheel chairs also have a tendency to develop urinary tract infections (UTI) caused by the overgrowth of yeasts.  If you are too tired to exercise, just start with a few minutes of slow walking or in-place jogging and gradually build up.  If you are in the wheel chair, you can also do “chair dancing” to improve your blood circulation and prevent the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites.

5)    Change Environments:

As explained before, yeasts and parasites are everywhere.   A damp environment such as woodlands and seaside dwellings, or a dusty environment such as construction sites all provide an incubator for yeasts and parasites to overgrow.  If you are exposed to yeasty or dusty environments, you are prone to having flare ups of yeast and parasitic infections.  Move to an environment which may be more suitable to improving your health.  If that is not possible, just take my Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) routinely to remove excess yeasts and parasites.

6)    Overuse of Antibiotics or Potent Drugs:

As described in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, antibiotics or potent drugs may provide you with temporary relief.   However, the “good guys” such as bacteria floras in the intestines take a long time to re-establish, while the “bad guys” such as harmful yeasts take no time to comeback since they are air-borne and everywhere!  Thus, yeast overgrowth quickly occurs.  Worst of all, yeasts and parasites are like Siamese Twins.  They come hand in hand.  They both can create symptoms for you from head to toe.  My suggestion is avoiding antibiotics or potent drugs whenever possible.  Call me or consult with your holistic health care provider for alternatives before you take any antibiotics or potent drugs.

7)    Prevent Traveler’s Disease:

If you travel to an unfamiliar environment, I would suggest that you only drink a familiar brand of bottled water and eat food prepared by clean, prestigious hotels.  Avoid raw vegetables (salads).  Wash the fruits thoroughly and peel the skin before eating them.  Although there is no guarantee, take every precaution possible to prevent yeast and parasitic infections.

The symptoms and causes of yeast and parasitic infections may vary with each individual.
