Posts Tagged ‘arthritis-like aches and pain’

In the previous article, I pointed out that yeast and parasitic infection is a global epidemic.  I also highlighted the major symptoms.  They include: mind fog, fatigue, depression, sugar craving, allergies, sleep disorder, declining eyesight, arthritis-like aches and pains, and acid reflux.  The list goes on.  Very often, you can see evidence in the toilet including eggs of parasites, mature worms, and debris of yeasts.  To get more detailed information, you may review my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

In this article, I will address the major causes of yeast and parasitic infections based on my more than 30 years of clinical experience working with people from all walks of life:

1)    Poor Dietary Habits:

As I pointed out repeatedly, Standard American Diet creates many “sad” stories because it’s loaded with favorite foods for yeasts and parasites.  This includes sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and chemicals.  When yeasts and parasites are well fed, they have rock n’ roll parties.  After the parties, they deposit toxic waste in your body and cause the symptoms described in the previous article.

2)    Stress:

Stress, if managed ineffectively, can weaken your immune system and allow yeasts and parasites to overgrow.  The analogy is very simple.  If a community has a strong police force, gang activities will be under control.  If the police force is weak, the terror of gang activities will control the community.  The same is true with your immunity and the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites.

3)    Lack of exercise:

Yeasts and parasites love a still environment.  Immobility provides a still environment for the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites.  That’s why you might have symptoms such as sleep disorder, sinus congestion, snoring, or sleep apnea at night.  People in wheel chairs also have a tendency to develop urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by the overgrowth of yeasts.

4)    Environmental Factors:

Yeasts are everywhere.  They are in the air you breathe, the water you drink, the carpet you sit on, the furniture you use, and the furs of your pets.   A damp environment such as woodlands and seaside dwellings, or dusty environments 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 have flare ups of yeast and parasitic infections.

5)    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 such as cortisone work like an atomic bomb.  They kill everything instantly so that you feel a temporary relief.  However, good guys such as bacteria floras in the intestines take a long time to re-establish, while bad guys such as harmful yeasts take no time to come back since they are everywhere!.  Thus, yeast overgrowth quickly occurs.  When yeasts ferment, they produce a chemical substance called propyl alcohol which feeds parasites.  To return the favor, parasites use their body surface as a platform for yeasts to overgrow.

6)    Traveler’s Disease:

When you travel to areas where they may have water or air pollution, or their produce and fruits are contaminated with yeasts and parasites, then you are prone to come back home with “Traveler’s Disease.”

The causes of yeast and parasitic infections for each individual may vary.  The above are commonly reported causes by my clients.  In the next article, I will discuss natural, holistic treatment for yeast and parasitic infections.  Stay tuned!

I just came across some friends who have been suffering from a cluster of symptoms which are typical when infected by yeasts and parasites.  However, they did not know what they had, and whom to turn to for help.  The purpose of this three-part article is to educate you in terms of prevention and early treatment for yeast and parasitic infections.  Specifically, I will address the symptoms, causes and treatment methods for this epidemic.

 

Common Symptoms of Yeast and Parasitic Infections:

As detailed in my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections range from head to toe.  The most common symptoms presented by my clients are:

1)     Mind Fog:

When yeasts ferment in your body, they release a chemical substance called propyl alcohol.  That substance can make you feel “drunk” and experience foggy mind.

2)     Fatigue: 

Yeasts and parasites use their vampire-like hooks to hook onto your mucous membrane and suck out the nutrients.  Because you are feeding an extended family, you experience malnourishment and low energy.

3)     Depression:

Because of mind fog and chronic fatigue, you feel non-motivated, inactive, underachieved, and thus depressed.

4)     Sugar Craving:

As described in my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking, sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine feed your little enemies: yeasts and parasites, especially sugar.  The more sugary foods you eat, the more yeasts and parasites scream, “Feed me!  Feed me!”

5)     Allergies:

When you feed yeasts and parasites their favorite foods described above, they have a rock n’ roll party.  After the party, they go to the toilet within you and deposit their toxic waste.  Therefore, you can have many sorts of allergies including respiratory and food allergies.

6)     Sleep Disorder:

Yeasts and parasites love a still environment because that allows them to grow and expand more easily.  Therefore, they are active while you are in bed.  Consequently, their “activities” can keep you awake.

7)     Declining Eyesight:

Mind fog, chronic fatigue, depression and sleep disorder can all affect your eyesight.  Moreover, when parasites get into your eyes, they can cause macular degeneration.  In worst case scenarios, when flat worms get behind your eye balls, they can even cause blindness.

8)     Arthritis-like Aches and Pain:

When you have a severe case of yeast and parasitic infection, you might have systemic body aches and pain.  The toxic waste deposited by yeasts and parasites can cause severe inflammation and thus the pain.  Because yeasts and parasites move around, theses aches and pains also shift around your body.

9)     Acid Reflux:

Acid reflux can be a symptom associated with yeast and parasitic infections in the digestive tract.   The presence of yeasts and parasites interfere with the digestive function of hydrochloride.  When your body is more acidic vs. alkaline, it provides an environment for yeasts and parasites to overgrow.  Thus, a vicious cycle ensues.

10) Evidence in the toilet:

Eggs of parasites may look like sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, broken corn, or white specs in the stool.  Worse yet, you might see string cheese-like items in the toilet. These are mature worms.   Yeasts may look like cotton, or hair, or clouds in your urine.  Sometimes they show up as thick mucus.  When you see the above in your toilet, you know that you have a severe infestation.

Yeast and parasitic infection symptoms may vary with every individual.  The symptoms described above are the most common ones presented by my clients.  In the next article, I will discuss the common causes for yeast and parasitic infections.  Stay tuned.

In my previous two articles, I stressed that in order to reduce or eradicate the decomposing effects of the fungal spores, you need to clean both the external and internal environments.  In this article, I will focus on controlling the internal environment: Your body.

Fungal spores may enter the body through the air you breathe, the water you drink, the dust on your furniture, the food you eat, the fur from pets, etc.  The function of fungal spores is to decompose (ferment) the medium for food.  When your immune system is strong, you can co-exist with these transparent creatures.  When your immunity is weak, members of the fungal family such as yeasts and candida albicans may “occupy” your body causing you to suffer yeast overgrowth symptoms from head to toe such as headaches, mind fog, fatigue, depression, allergies, arthritis-like aches and pain, skin rash, fungal nails, etc.

The following are essential natural remedies to control yeast overgrowth in your body:

1.    Yeast Free Nutritional Program:

Sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine are favorite food for yeasts.  Eliminating this type of food from your diet can starve harmful yeasts and control their overgrowth.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

2.    Herbal Therapy:

When your body suffers from a chronic case of yeast overgrowth (or candidiasis), you need strong herbal formulas to “clean house”.  Our Yeast-Para Control formula is designed to remove excess yeasts and parasites simultaneously since they go hand in hand like Siamese Twins.  Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to flush the debris that Yeast-Para Control creates, and cleanse the liver and kidneys.  Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea form a strong herbal detox program to treat and prevent yeast overgrowth.

If symptoms of fatigue, mind fog, depression, and loss of sexual interest are present, Female Vitality or Male Vitality is essential to fight them.  Herbal Cocktail, a high-protein drink, is very beneficial to balance the weight problems (either over-weight or under-weight) due to yeast overgrowth.  It is also very effective in stopping sugar cravings.

3.    Physical exercise:

Since fungal spores thrive in still environments, you need to exercise daily to improve your blood circulation and energy flow and not to give them a chance to grow in your body.  I know the last thing you want to do is exercise when you feel fatigued.  Motivate yourself to start with some low-impact exercise such as slow walking or in-place jogging.  You may start with 10 minutes, and then gradually increase to 30 minutes, to an hour.

4.    Mental exercise

Stress is the main cause to lower your immunity and weaken your body’s defense.  Stress is a part of life.  You simply need to learn how to effectively manage stress.  In my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are many techniques such as releasing negative emotions, 10-minute meditation, writing letters in a proper format to finish “unfinished” business, prayers, affirmations, etc.  Practice these techniques daily, and make stress become a motivating factor for you to move forward!

Yeast, mold, and mushrooms are all members of fungal family.  Fungus is a plant-like organism.  Fungus cannot manufacture its own food and must live on other organisms.  Fungus breaks down the dead body of other plants or animals and turns it into starch or sugar as its food. This process is called decomposition.

Decomposition provides the fungus with the energy necessary to survive and reproduce. Fungus reproduces by forming reproductive cells called spores. When the spores settle on a proper medium for their nutrition, they begin to grow on and decompose its medium.  If the medium is a dead body, the decomposition helps the recycling process of nature.

However, if the spores settle on and decompose a live body, the medium can become very ill.  The symptoms of this “live body decomposition” can range from head to toe.  For humans, for example, they include headaches, sinus congestion, strep throat, allergies, mind fog, depression, fatigue, arthritis-like aches and pain, fungal nails, athlete’s foot, eczema, etc.

Where are these spores from?  Because these spores are air-born, they can be from anywhere.  They can be in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the dust on furniture, raw food, etc.

What are the environmental factors ideal for the growth of these fungal spores (especially mold)?  Dampness, moisture, still air, no sunlight, warm temperatures (not extreme heat or cold), dust, etc. provide an incubation for fungus to grow.

In the next article, I will discuss how to eliminate the environmental factors for the fungus to grow.  Stay tuned.

As mentioned in the previous article, leaky gut syndrome is not a recognized diagnosis by the western medical establishment.  The symptoms of leaky gut syndrome mimic symptoms discussed in previous articles including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, Irritated Bowel Syndrome, Lyme disease, etc.  It does not matter what kind of diagnosis you have, what matters is that you need to get well!

Many medical doctors may say there was “nothing wrong” with you according to their tests; or worse, you were told it was “all in your head” and gave you prescriptions for depression, pain, insomnia, etc.

Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience working with clients with inflammations of the gastric-intestinal tract (GI tract), the following have been the most effective holistic treatment methods:

1)    Yeast-free nutritional program:

If you have been reading my articles, you must be familiar with my yeast-free nutritional program containing 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”.  You might ask, “How long should I stay on Dr. J’s yeast-free nutritional program?”  This is essentially a nutritional program for life.  This is why I do not label this program a “diet.”  Diets denote a temporary eating habit.  If you want to nourish your body and starve the yeasts and parasites, it is recommended that you stay on our yeast-free nutritional program as much as you can, especially in the first three to six months of the treatment.  When your immunity is stronger, you can “relax” a little bit on the no-no items.  However, you do need to prepare for the consequences whenever you deviate from our yeast-free nutritional program.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

 

2)    Herbal Therapy

Based on my clinical experience, I have found that many diagnoses share the same symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections.  Once we remove excessive yeasts and parasites in the body, the inflammation of the GI tract is under control.  Our Yeast-Para Control formula is designed for this purpose.  According to my best knowledge, our Yeast-Para Control is the only formula that can remove yeasts and parasites simultaneously.  Remember, yeasts and parasites are like Siamese twins.  They must be removed simultaneously from your body in order for you to get well.  Yeast-Para Control loosens the toxins in the body, and Cleansing-Balance Tea flushes the toxins.  The two formulas work synergistically together to remove excess yeasts and parasites.

Herbal Cocktail is essential to repair the damaged linings of stomach and intestines (both small and large intestines).  It’s a high protein herbal drink rich in absorbable nutrients and digestive enzymes.  You can mix with Cleansing-Balance Tea or make a delicious herbal smoothie.

Fatigue and mind fog are common symptoms for people with leaky gut syndrome. The Hormonal Regeneration program (Female Vitality or Male Vitality) gives you calm energy and increases mental clarity and productivity.  These products also improve sex drive. 

The combination of the above formulas would help you experience symptom relief to a greater or lesser degree.  How long do you need to stay on the herbal program?  It depends on your health condition, commitment and budget.  I customize the treatment program to suit your individual needs.

3)    Stress management

Stress is part of life.  No one is immune to it.  Daily meditation, affirmations, prayers, and deep emotional releasing technique, are all very helpful to manage stress effectively.   Read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, for details.

 

4)    Proper hydration

Drink eight to ten cups of liquid per day to ensure smooth elimination of toxins.  Initially this might seem to worsen the symptoms of diarrhea, but eventually the condition will improve.  Besides, chronic diarrhea can cause dehydration, which in turn can cause many other symptoms, such as muscle cramps.  If you are on our Herbal Detoxprogram, you will be instructed to drink at least six cups of Cleansing-Balance Tea, in addition to our herbal smoothies, soups and water.

5)    Low-impact exercise

When you experience chronic fatigue, the last thing you want to do is exercise.  However, it’s important to “force” yourself to do some low-impact exercise such as slow walking in your neighborhood.  You may start from ten minutes and slowly increase based on your body’s strength.  Exercise generates endorphins (the morphine within – a natural pain killer), and it will help reduce arthritis-like aches and pain.  Fresh air and better blood circulation will also improve your overall well-being.

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.

According to my clinical experience, Leaky gut syndrome is a cluster of symptoms caused by digestive tract inflammation.  Symptoms include: 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, Chrohn’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.  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 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, they also damage the linings on the walls of the GI tract.

 

2)    Poor dietary habit:

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, or guilt is like driving a car with the hand-break on.  It causes wear and tear to 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 all kinds of illnesses.

 

4)    Liberal use of antibiotics:

 

The western medical establishment uses antibiotics as a “catch all” magic bullet for all infections without consideration to strengthening the immunity.  In fact, excessive use of antibiotics 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 little time to come back; while the “good guys” take a long time to rebuild.  Thus, an imbalance is created, and yeast overgrowth becomes an additional health issues for you to handle.

 

In the next article, I will discuss the holistic treatment to repair the leaky guts and regain your health.  Stay tuned.
