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 Conditions:

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, loss of sexual interest, 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 safe and healthy weight loss.  Stay tuned.

According to the statistics, more than 80 percent of diabetics who are diagnosed each year have at least one family member with the disease.   However, most adult onset (Type 2) diabetics are diagnosed when people are over 40 and overweight.

Based on my more than three decades of clinical experiences and observation, diabetes that appears to be hereditary is actually a learned behavior.  People diagnosed with diabetes tend to copy the same dietary habit, mental attitude, and lifestyle from those of their parents who had diabetes.  When they break the cycle and adopt a healthier lifestyle, the so called “genes” no longer have effects on them.

The following is a good example:

Kathy was 45 years old and 60 pounds overweight when she came to my office.  Both of her parents had their legs amputated and died from complications of diabetes.  She was worried about getting diabetes and dying from it like her parents.  Because her diet mainly consisted of fatty and sugary foods in addition to her being overweight, I put her on our Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) as well as  Weight Management (Herbal Cocktail, Fitness Regularand Fitness Plus) programs.  She was also on our yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, nor chemicals.  She also walked daily for 30 to 60 minutes.

She was guided to write numerous letters to release her negative emotions toward her parents and siblings.  All of these actions were a drastic life-change for her.  However, she made up her mind that she did not want to die young miserably.  She stuck to the holistic program stringently until she lost 60 pounds (in about 7 months).  After that, she stayed on the maintenance program of the herbal products, and kept the healthier lifestyle.

More than 15 years had gone by since I first saw Kathy, and she has never developed diabetes.  Her contention is now, “So what if I had diabetic genes?!  I control them, instead of allowing them to control me!”

According to the Natural Institute of Health (NIH), more than 65 percent of American adults are overweight (25 pounds or over).  Carrying extra weight increases the risks of developing serious health issues such as heart disease, stroke, cancers, and diabetes.

The increase of Type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes is in correlation with the rise in obesity. The American Diabetes Association estimates about 21 million people have diabetes, with another 54 million people diagnosed with pre-diabetes.  Pre-diabetes is a condition where fasting blood glucose levels are elevated, but not yet to the level of Type 2 diabetes.

What is Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes is associated with insulin resistance. Insulin is an important hormone released by the pancreas to burn blood sugar (glucose) and turn it into energy for body cells.  Fat cells are less sensitive to insulin than muscle cells.  If a person has more fat cells than muscle cells, then the insulin becomes less effective overall, and glucose remains circulating in the blood instead of being used as fuel for body cells.

Why is a Diabetic Prone to Yeast and Parasitic Infections?

When blood sugar is unused and circulating in the blood stream, it feeds yeasts (and parasites) in your body.  When your little enemies are well fed, they have rock ‘n roll party, and then use your body as a toilet (deposits toxins)!  Most people with diabetes feel fatigued and sluggish.  If left untreated, severe symptoms may develop, such as blurred vision, poor circulation, gangrene, neuropathy, and amputation of the limbs.

How can you lose the weight and cut the risks of Type 2 diabetes?  Stay tuned.  You will find answers in the next post.

If you said yes to either or both, then you should learn about detox!

Any amount of alcohol and drug use affects the body. Two organs, along with many others that become affected by alcohol and drug use, are the liver and kidneys. Depending on how long and how much someone abuses alcohol and drug use, toxins build up in these organs.

Exposure to alcohol and drug use over time will affect the liver and kidneys to stop functioning properly, resulting in conditions such as diabetes and obesity. Performing a body cleanse and detox (eliminating toxins) for the body of the harmful effects from alcohol and drugs can help to prevent possible long-term conditions in the future.

Check out Dr J’s Herbal Cleanse/Detox program (Yeast Para-Control and Cleansing Balance Tea) for healthier liver and kidneys!

Yeast and parasitic infections exist rampantly throughout the world, yet this field of health remains relatively unexplored. 

Have you ever suffered symptoms from head to toe and were told by your physician(s) that the cause was unknown?  Or perhaps that the cause was “all in your head” and were told to instead seek psychological evaluation?

Based on more than 30 years of personal and professional experiences conquering yeast and parasitic infections, Dr. Juliet Tien (Dr. J) has determined that the overgrowth of yeast and parasites is the “root of all evil” when health is concerned.  According to our philosophy, symptoms caused by yeast and parasites include Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), allergies, anemia, anxiety,  arthritis-like aches and pains, asthma, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), declining sexual interest and potency, depression, diabetes, menopause, Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) and weight problems. 

In order to control the overgrowth of yeast and parasites, it is highly recommended to adopt a Yeast-Free Living lifestyle.  Yeast-Free Living focuses on the balance of the body, mind and spirit.  It entails the following: 

  • A Yeast-Free Nutritional approach to your diet
  • Chinese herbal therapy that targets Detox, Regeneration, and Weight Management
  • A proper Healing Mindset.

Yeast-Free Nutrition:
Dr. J’s Eight Commandments for a Yeast-Free diet are:  “No sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, or chemicals.”  The more you can adhere to these dietary principles, the more health benefits you will receive. 

Chinese Herbal Therapy:
Employing a Yeast-Free Nutritional Approach will prevent you from feeding your body allergens.  However, if your body has endured many years of abuse or misuse (especially though drinking, smoking, drugs, over- or under-eating), specialized herbal therapy will help streamline  your healing process.  Look for herbal supplements that cleanse both yeasts and parasites.  Dr. J’s signature herbal product accomplishes this feat.

Healing Mindset:
Overgrowth of yeast and parasites is the “root of evil” when health is concerned, but the “root of evil” begins with a deficient mindset.  In order to uproot your health issues, you need to cultivate a positive healing mindset.  As with many things in life, having the right positive mindset will only attract positive aspects into your world.
