Q.        I have lost and gained at least 100 pounds in the past two years.  I am sick and tired of these weight yo-yo’s.  How can I lose weight and stay off?

A.        Weight yo-yo (weight cycling) is very common when people seek a “quick fix” for their weight problems.  You need to make a commitment to a healthier lifestyle if you want long-lasting results.  I personally lost 50 pounds and have been staying fit for the past three decades (even after two pregnancies).  The commonly used excuses such as carrying baby fat after pregnancies and slowdown of the metabolism with age, etc. would not affect you if you follow the following recommendations:

1.  Yeast-Free Nutritional Program:

Remember, I don’t call this a “yeast-free diet”, because “diet” would denote a temporary fix.  I call it a nutritional program because this is for life.  In this nutritional program, you choose food that nourishes your body and starves your “little enemies”: yeasts and parasites.   The yeast-free nutritional program consists of no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  I know this is a tall order for most Americans, because the Standard American Diet (SAD) is loaded with theses no-no’s and causes both childhood and adult obesity.  Do the best you can – You will get benefits proportional to your effort.  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:

A yeast-free nutritional program prevents new toxins from entering your body.  If your body already has toxin and fat build up, you need to consider herbal formulas that can remove toxins and burn the existing fat.  To help my clients lose weight effectively, I usually recommend our Herbal Detox(Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) together with the Weight Management (Herbal Cocktail, Fitness Regular, and Fitness Plus) program.  In order for your body to boost your metabolism, it’s essential that you have the toxins removed.

3.  Proper Hydration:

Dehydration can cause your entire body system to break down, including metabolic function.  Drink eight to 10 glasses of liquid (about eight oz. each glass) per day.  Your body needs this amount of liquid to ensure good blood circulation and smooth transportation of nutrients to your body cells.  If you are on our Herbal Detoxand Weight Management programs, you will have 6 cups of Cleansing-Balance Teaper day, plus one to two glasses of an Herbal Cocktailsmoothie, plus one cup of soup if you follow my yeast-free cookbook.  You are also welcome to drink one to two glasses of water in addition to the above.  Thus, your body will be properly hydrated if you are on our recommended programs.  When your body is properly hydrated, you don’t feel hungry as easily.  The food you ingest would be better digested and the nutrients will be properly absorbed.

4.  Daily Exercise:

Exercise improves your blood circulation and increases the absorption of our herbal formulas.  Exercise also generate endorphins (the morphine within) which can reduce or prevent the aches and pains in your body.  It also gives you a feeling of being calm and high.  According to some of my clients, it’s better than marijuana!

Some people use excuses such as no money for gym membership, no gym nearby, not liking the people in the gym, etc.  Here is my suggestion: you don’t need to go to the gym to exercise.  You can do slow walking around the block in your neighborhood, or walk in a mall if you are concerned about your safety, or simply jog in place at home.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

5.  Cleansing Mental Toxins:

Weight is often used as a subconscious protection shield.  Most of my clients with overweight conditions had been abused physically, sexually, and/or mentally.  Until the negative emotions such as anger, resentment, fear, regret, guilt, etc are cleared up with spiritual/psychological counseling, the weight yo-yo’s can continue on a subconscious level.  I highly recommend spiritual counseling here because I help my clients find meaning in the suffering.  Traditional psychotherapy can take a long time and still not achieve the same result.  Read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healingfor more details.

Maintaining your ideal weight is a life-long journey in staying physically and mentally fit.  No fad diet can accomplish this.  You must make a total commitment to a healthy lifestyle!  Our herbal programs will make it much easier to achieve this lifestyle.

It is common sense that a strong immune system is the foundation for good health.  When your immunity is weak, a variety of diseases can flourish in your body.  Here is an analogy: when the police force is strong in a society, there will be social order; when the police force is weak, gangsters take over, and people would live in chaos and fear.  Scientists have reported that all of us have cancer genes in our body.  It is only when our immune system is compromised that our body cells become fermented and turn into cancer cells.

So the question is: How do I strengthen my immunity?

It seems to be a simple question, but it requires a comprehensive answer.  Base on my more than three decades of clinical experiences helping people from all walks of life heal various health issues, here are my recommendations:

1)    Yeast-Free Nutritional program:

As I have stated in previous articles, a yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals (Dr. J’s Eight Commandments as my clients called it) will prevent new toxins from harming your immune system.  I know this is a tall order because most people are so used to the Standard American Diet (SAD) which is loaded with my no-no’s.  Read my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking to learn what to eat and what to avoid.  I recommend doing the best you can.  If you can do 50%, you will get 50% of the benefits; if you can do 75%, you will get 75% of the benefits.  Of course, if you make 0% of the effort, you will get 0% of the benefits.

2)    Herbal Detox:

Our Herbal Detox program contains Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea. Most people understand that their pets need to de-worm periodically. I have news for you: human bodies host yeasts and parasites just like animals.  I recommend Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea, full-dosage, for at least 3-6 months a year depending on your lifestyle and living environment.  If you already have some health issues, you will need to stay on the Herbal Detox program longer until symptoms subside, then stay on a maintenance dosage.  Since yeasts and parasites go hand in hand, you must treat both simultaneously.  When you are on our Herbal Detox program, you will see the evidence in your toilet.  No need to have laboratory tests to prove that you carry “unwanted tenants!”

3)    Hormonal Regeneration:

Our Female Vitality or Male Vitality is designed to balance your hormonal system and give you calm energy, mental clarity, and uplift your mood.  This, in turn, will improve your problem solving ability and reduce the stress in your life.  When you are able to handle your stress effectively, you will have a heightened immunity.

 4)    Weight Management:

More than 60% of Americans are overweight (or have excessive fat).  Many people go on and off starvation diets attempting to control their weight, consequently damage their immunity.  If you want to lose weight, do it the safe and healthy way.  Follow my yeast-free nutritional regimen and get on our Weight Management program: Herbal Cocktail, Fitness Regular, and Fitness Plus.  By taking these actions, you will safely lose about two to three pounds per week consistently.  Herbal Cocktail is a high protein herbal drink designed to stop your sugar craving and curb your appetite for junk food.  Fitness Regular is a fat blocker designed to balance your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol.  Fitness Plus is a fat burner designed to burn the existing fat in your body.  When you are physically fit, you will have stronger immunity.

5)    Proper Hydration:

70% of our body weight is water.  Dehydration can cause the increase of mucous, yeast overgrowth, and many other health problems.  It’s important to drink eight to ten cups (about eight oz. each cup) a day to maintain proper hydration.  One tea bag of our caffeine-free Cleansing-Balance Tea makes six cups of tea.  I have also included several soup recipes in my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast CookingYou can make a delicious smoothie with our Herbal Cocktail. Purified water is also effective.  You have plenty of ways to hydrate your body properly.

6)    Exercise:

Daily exercise improves blood circulation and increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to your body cells, and thus strengthens your immunity.  Furthermore, yeasts and parasites love a still environment.  A body in motion can reduce yeast and parasitic infections.  Exercise also enhances the absorption of herbal nutrients if you are taking supplements. You don’t need to go to the gym to exercise.  Slow walking or jogging in place is just as effective, and the price is right!  It’s free!

7)    Rest:

When your body is exhausted, the immune system can break down.  Everyone requires different amounts of sleep.  Find a happy medium for your body.  Usually seven to eight hours of sleep is important for your body to recuperate.  If you feel that you aren’t getting enough sleep, then incorporate my ten-minute meditation (see my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing) and/or cat naps during the day which are very effective.

8)    Manage Stress Effectively:

Stress, if managed properly, can motivate and propel you to a higher level of success.  Otherwise, it can cause wear and tear down your immune system.  My book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, gives you many tools to manage your stress effectively.  Emotional Releasing Technique, writing a “Reconciliation Letter”, meditation, prayers, and affirmations are but a few examples.

Your immune system is like a machine containing various sizes of cogs and screws.  Each cog needs to operate harmoniously together in order to yield the best efficiency.  A car needs regular oil and air filter changes every 3,000 miles.  Your body needs regular maintenance just like your car.  Take good care of your body so that you can get best mileage out of it!

Many people are concerned about the nuclear fallout from Fukushima, Japan.  In my previous articles I clarified that Americans in the U. S. do not have to be concerned about acute radiation syndrome (ARS) at this time, since ARS only occurs when there is a large amount of exposure to radiation in a short period of time.

What we need to be concerned about is chronic radiation sickness.  Most radiation particles have a long half-life.  For example, cesium: Cs-137 has a half-life of 30 years  Radiation particles can contaminate the water supply, food, environment, pets, and people. 

The symptoms of chronic radiation sickness vary according to the dose and the duration of radiation exposed.  The general symptoms include:  recurrent infections, low grade fever, loss of appetite, weakness and fatigue, fainting, dehydration, inflammation (swelling, redness or tenderness of tissues), anemia, unhealed open wounds, hair loss, bruises, and skin burns.  Large amounts of or long term exposure can cause birth defects and cancer. 

Treatment usually focuses on the reduction of symptoms.  The Mayo Clinic staff is also concerned about bacterial infections.  However, there is no mention of yeast disorders. 

Why do yeast disorders occur with chronic radiation sickness?  Very simple, radiation burns and kills.  It destroys the DNA in your white cells, and thus destroys the immune system.  If the immune system is weak, the body has no defense when yeasts, bacteria, viruses and parasites invade.  The contemporary medical establishment uses antibiotics liberally to kill bacteria and viruses, but antibiotics kill both the good and bad guys.  The good guys (good bacteria floras) take a long time to come back, while the bad guys (harmful yeasts) take no time to repopulate.  Consequently the body suffers a severe case of yeast overgrowth, and that can contribute to cancer as well.

What would be the best way to prevent and treat chronic radiation sickness?  Stay tuned. The detox protocol for prevention and treatment for chronic radiation sickness will be detailed in the next article.

Choose Love and Peace instead of Fear and Anxiety.

Healthy regards,

Dr. J
