I would say that Dr. J’s Herbal Detox herbs (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) are “king of herbs”!

When I had a root canal removed, I did not want to take antibiotics to mess up my immune system and make yeast infections flare up.  So, I followed Dr. J’s recommendations and doubled up on Yeast-Para Control and drank two pots of Cleansing-Balance Tea a day.  The natural antibiotics in Yeast-Para Control worked very well without the side effects of western drugs.  The Cleansing-Balance Tea flushed toxins in my body.  My body felt so clean and I had no complications!

Most available literature would mention lightly that “early diagnosis” and “proper amount of antibiotics” would “cure” Lyme disease.  However, I have found that many Lyme disease diagnostic tests are unreliable. Many patients were not given the diagnosis of Lyme disease by their physicians until after they had suffered a cluster of symptoms for years.  It was only after their disease developed into a stage III (chronic) Lyme disease that people would take notice.

In my more than 30 years of clinical practice, I have not come across any Lyme disease clients that have been “cured by antibiotics.”  They might experience temporary relief of symptoms; however, when their life is stressful, the symptoms would return.  Worse yet, those who have been treated with many courses, or multiple brands and strains of antibiotics for a long period of time, tend to develop a severe case of yeast overgrowth.  That’s the major reason why people with Lyme disease also have candidiasis or other yeast and parasitic infection symptoms.

As long as you keep the immunity strong, you can co-exist with all kinds of microbial organisms in harmony.  Unfortunately, I have found most people with Lyme disease had a “go-go-go” personality.  Physically speaking, they exhaust their energy reserve by overdoing things.  Emotionally speaking, they stressed themselves out by creating constant time-pressured life events.  Spiritually speaking, the universe gives them an opportunity to be humbled, rest and takes good care of their bodies.

Based on the above understanding, my holistic approach is to help my clients with Lyme disease gain a physical, emotional and spiritual balance.  The following are guidelines for holistic treatment:

 

Physical Balance:

In order to strengthen the immunity, it’s important to be on a yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, nor chemicals.  Smokers were also guided to stop smoking, because the above no-no’s and nicotine feed yeasts and parasites.  As mentioned previously, yeast and parasitic infections go hand in hand with Lyme disease because of the liberal use of antibiotics.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, so that you can nourish your body, and starve your little enemies within, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Because the common symptoms of Lyme disease include fatigue, mind fog, swollen glands, and shifting aches and pain (which mimic Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia) herbal therapy is also important to eliminate or reduce these symptoms.  The combination of Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) and Hormonal Regeneration (Female Vitality or Male Vitality) programs works to increase energy, clear mind fog, stop inflammation, and eliminate aches and pain.  No two individuals have the same symptoms.  Therefore, some individuals may need Herbal Cocktailf or bloating and sugar craving as well.

Exercise is of ultimate importance for people with Lyme disease.  Exercise improves blood circulation and generates endorphins; this in turn, helps reduce or eliminate aches and pain.  When you are fatigued, the last thing you want to do is exercise.  Just start with slow walking for 10 minutes around the block, then gradually increase the amount of time and vigor when your body becomes stronger.

 

Emotional Balance:

The precursor of Lyme disease is usually an overactive, stressful lifestyle.  Meditation, prayers, deep emotional releasing technique, etc. are very useful self-administered stress management techniques.  Stress is a part of life.  If managed properly, stress can motivate you to move forward. 

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 your immunity.   Therefore, it’s important to clear the “unfinished” business.

In my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are detailed instructions of these stress management techniques.  Use them, and you will have an easier and more enjoyable life! 

 

Spiritual Balance:

Some people felt false relief when they received a diagnosis of Lyme disease from their physicians.  Antibiotics are considered “magic bullets” in western medical establishments.  Through their continued suffering, patients realize this is not true.  If you are spiritual, you might wonder why your life is ruined by such tiny creatures like ticks (only the size of poppy or sesame seeds). This is a way designed by the universe to humble you and “encourage” you to take good care of yourself.  Your body is a temporary home for your soul.  However, in order to have a smoother spiritual journey, you still need to take good care of this temporary home.

There is also a possibility that you have abused or misused your power to control people.  Therefore, you are given an “opportunity” to learn how it’s like to be controlled by tiny creatures like ticks.  If you apologize to the universe for this possibility and vow that you will never make the same mistake again, you might feel peace and harmony with the universe and with yourself.

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.

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.

Yeasts are everywhere.  They are in the air we breath, the water we drink, on the furniture we touch, on the ground or grass we walk on, on the skin that gets infected, on the pet’s fur, etc.  When the immune system is strong, the body can co-exist with yeasts, just like a good police force can keep a good social order.  When the police force (the immune system) is weak, then chaos will be the result.

Indulgence in yeast favorite food (Standard American Diet – SAD) that contains sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, cafeine, nicotin, and chemicals, excessive use of antibiotics, lack of exercise, pre-existing illnesses, poor hygene, sexual contact, and psychological stress, can cause the breakdown of the immune system and the thriving of yeasts.

Psychological stress is the primary cause for yeast disorders.  Unfinished business, boredom and “Busy-Taking-Care-of-Others Syndrome” are common causes for chronic psychological stress.

The most effective way for treating yeast infections or candidiasis is using a holistic approach including yeast-free nutrition, herbal therapy, stress management, and spiritual counseling.   For more information, visit www.drjsbest.com.  I also provide consultation via telephone or Skype.  For appointment, call (800) 715-3053 or e-mail: drj@drjsbest.com.

Healthy regards,
