Posts Tagged ‘difficulty swallowing’

A short while ago, I posted an article about herbal smoothie for hydration and nourishment for people having difficulty swallowing as result of radiation treatment for throat cancer.  Several people have asked questions about the benefits of herbal smoothie and its indications.  Here is the detailed information:

The recipe of herbal smoothie calls for:

1 cup of purified water

1 cup of sugar-free soy milk, or rice milk, or almond milk, or coconut milk

1 ripe banana (peeled and sliced)

1 scoop of Herbal Cocktail powder

2 capsules of Yeast-Para Control (break the capsules and use the powder content)

1 capsule of Female Vitality or Male Vitality (break the capsule and use the powder content)

Put the mixture in the blender on high speed for 10 seconds.

Here is the rationale for the above ingredients:

  • Purified water: right consistency of the recipe and hydration
  • Sugar-free soy milk, or rice milk, or almond milk, or coconut milk: smooth taste and protein source
  • Ripe banana: naturally sweet taste and smooth elimination
  • Herbal Cocktail:  High concentration of herbal protein, complex carbohydrates, and digestive enzymes. Nourishing the body and stopping sugar craving.
  • Yeast-Para Control: Removing yeasts and parasites, cleansing toxins, and building immunity.
  • Female Vitalityor Male Vitality: Increasing body strength, stamina, and mental clarity, and uplifting mood.

Please note: 

1)    ALL the recipes on my yeast-free nutritional program contain no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, nor chemicals.  No sweeteners are needed for this herbal smoothie because a ripe banana is natural sweet.  You may alternate banana with Fuji apple, or pear, or papaya for a variety of tastes and nutrients. 

2)    Do not add ice cubes.  When the temperature is icy cold, it prohibits proper absorption.  You may warm up the smoothie to luke warm (body) temperature for tube feeding.

3)    The amount of herbal formulas in this herbal smoothie recipe has been experimented and perfected for a smooth, “non-herby” and delicious taste.  Any deviation may change the taste.

Herbal Smoothie is good for:

  • Difficulty swallowing due to radiation therapy for cancer in the throat area.
  • Difficulty swallowing due to degenerative nervous system such as Lou Gehrig’s disease
  • Gastric-intestinal tract (G-I tract) ulcers such as stomach, esophagus, duodenal, or intestinal ulcers
  • Tube feeding for any reason, any age
  • Children who cannot swallow capsules
  • Weight management: Lose fat or gain muscle weight (may add 1 capsule of Fitness Plus for weight loss).
  • Energy boosting for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, etc.

May have one to three servings per day.

Q.        I had radiotherapy for my throat cancer.  The treatment burned my throat and I have difficulty swallowing.  I am hungry and thirsty.  I feel very weak.  What would you recommend?  I am residing outside of the U. S., how can I get your products and services?

A.        Obviously you are malnourished and dehydrated.  The most important thing now is to get some nutrients and liquid in your body.  Since you have difficulty swallowing solid foods, I would suggest that you drink our herbal smoothie at least three times a day. 


Here is the recipe:

1 cup of rice milk, or soy milk or almond milk

1 cup of purified water

1 scoop of Herbal Cocktail (powder)

2 capsules of Yeast-Para Control (break the capsules, just use the powder content)

2 capsules of Female Vitality (break the capsules, just use the powder content)

1 ripe banana (skin peeled, sliced)

Put the mixture in the blender on high speed for 10 seconds.


I created this herbal smoothie recipe for children or adults who could not swallow capsules.  This recipe has been experimented and perfected to make it delicious without the “herby taste”.  This herbal smoothie will be ideal for you to nourish and hydrate your body; therefore, you can rebuild your strength and immunity.

For meals, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking  to make brown rice gruel (porridges) and different variety of soups.

From the psychological perspective, any cancer involving the throat area usually  symbolizes that you have suppressed anger and have not expressed your anger verbally.  Follow the guidelines in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, to write letters to release the negative emotions in a proper way so that you can finish some “unfinished business.”

My books are available in hard copy or e-books.  We ship our herbal products and books worldwide.  You can place your order online: www.drjsbest.com, or call me at (818) 472-2213, or send me an e-mail at drj@drjsbest.com.  Consultation on the phone or over Skype is also available.  My Skype name: academyofvibranthealth.
