In the previous articles, I addressed Step I:  understanding the cause(s) of overweight condition, and Step 2: developing a weight loss Meal Plan – an anti-yeast nutritional program.   In this article I will discuss Step 3: using herbal therapy to cleanse yeasts and parasites to boost your immunity, energy and metabolism, Step 4: managing your stress effectively to stop or prevent emotional eating, and Step 5: defining your life purpose.

 

Step 3: Herbal Therapy:

Detox:           

An anti-yeast nutritional program prevents new toxins from entering your body.  Chinese herbal therapy removes existing toxins so that your body’s innate intelligence will be activated for optimal function.

Yeasts and parasites tend to go to the weak areas in your body to develop their colonies.  If your thyroid is weak to begin with, then they can build their home there and further weaken your thyroid function.  A strong herbal formula is needed to remove excess yeasts and parasites simultaneously.  Our Yeast-Para Control formula is designed for that purpose.  Because yeasts and parasites go hand in hand, you must cleanse both simultaneously to improve your immunity, energy and metabolism.

In addition to loosening up the toxins created by yeasts and parasites, you need to flush the toxins.  Our Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed for that purpose, with the emphasis on cleansing liver and kidneys.

Fitness:

In addition to detoxifying your thyroid, it’s also important to nourish your body and starve yeasts and parasites so that you can stop sugar craving.  Herbal Cocktailis a high protein herbal drink and will accomplish that purpose.  Herbal Cocktailis also rich in digestive enzymes which inhibit the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites and improves your digestive function.

Another fitness formula is Fitness Regular, a fat blocker.  If you carelessly ingest fatty food, Fitness Regular will block the fat from forming fatty tissues in your body.  The side benefits are lowering your high blood sugar, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Last but not least is Fitness Plus, a fat burnerFitness Plus will burn the excess fat in your body and turn it into energy for you.  When you combine the Detox and Fitness programs, you will greatly improve your immunity, energy and metabolism.

 

Step 4: Managing Stress Effectively to Stop or Prevent Emotional Eating

Stress is a part of life.  If you manage stress effectively, it can propel you to the next level of success.  In my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are several tools you can use to manage your stress effectively.  One simple but effective tool is my 10-minute meditation guide.  Go to www.drjsbest.com to claim this invaluable free gift.  Another tool is to write reconcile letters.  Follow the steps detailed in my book.  Once you release negative emotions such as anger, resentment, fear, doubt, guilt, and regret, you will stop or prevent emotional eating, and in turn, stop weight yo-yo’s.

Step 5: Defining the Purpose of Your Life

When you go through challenges in life and struggles with your weight, you might ask,

“Why me?”

“Why is life is so difficult for me?”

“What is the purpose of this?”

“Why am I here?”

“What is the purpose of life?”

“What is the meaning of life?”

“What is life all about”

According to Plato, purpose of life (or meaning of life) is attaining the highest form of knowledge.  Aristotle, Plato’s apprentice, defines purpose of life as achieving eudaemonia.  Eudaemonia is an ancient Greek word.  It consists of the words “eu” (good) and “daemon” (a type of supernatural being).   It is therefore translated as “happiness”, “well-being”, “flourishing”, and “excellence.”  Another Greek philosopher Epicurus defines happiness in its highest form as freedom from pain and freedom from fear.

My definition for purpose of life for each and every one of us is very simple:

“Constantly improving the quality of life and help others achieve the same!”

In order to achieve this purpose of life, we need to keep learning, growing, and expanding on the spiritual path so that we can be free of pain and free of fear; and meanwhile, help others achieve the same!

In your journey to weight loss, constantly remind yourself that there is a purpose for your struggle with the weight issue, and you will be able to remove all the obstacles.  You will be able to achieve the highest level of well-being and happiness through the journey.  After you triumph, you will be able to help others achieve the same!

In the process of taking theses five essential steps to achieve healthy and fast weight loss, remember the commonsense approach:  Regular exercise, proper hydration, and adequate amounts of sleep and rest are also essential.

If you follow all of the strategies detailed above, you will be able to reach your weight goals in a healthy way within the least possible amount of time!

Five Essential Steps to Healthy and Fast Weight Loss — Part 1

By Dr. Juliet Tien (Dr. J), D. N. Sc.

Once upon a time, I was called “little pig” because I was only five feet tall, and I was 50 pounds overweight!  In addition to being overweight, I also suffered a cluster of health issues such as mind fog, chronic fatigue, depression, sugar craving, arthritis-like aches and pains (fibromyalgia), eczema, athlete foot, etc.  At that time, nobody knew what I had.  When I look back, I realize what I had was a severe case of yeast and parasitic infection!

It took me a total of six (6) years to figure out how to lose those stubborn 50 pounds and become physically and mentally fit.  In this three-part article, I will condense my life-long journey into five simple steps for you to achieve healthy and fast weight loss in just a few weeks.

Step I:  Understanding the cause(s) of overweight condition:

Major causes of being overweight include poor dietary habits, yeast and parasitic infections, thyroid dysfunction, psychological stress and spiritual imbalance.

1)   Poor Dietary Habits:

As I’ve stated in my book, Healthy & Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking, an average American eats 120 pounds of sugar per year.  From birth to age 70, the average 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 an over-storage of fat.  Americans also tend to overeat or not to eat at regular hours.  Some skip breakfast and others have big meals right before bedtime.  Irregular hours and portions can confuse your biological clock and jeopardize your metabolic function.

2)   Yeast and Parasitic Infections:

Yeast and parasitic infections 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 syndrome (CFS), low energy, immune deficiency, arthritis-like aches and pains (fibromyalgia), skin rash, vaginal yeast infections, male yeast infections, anal itch, fungal nails, depression, anxiety, loss of sexual interest, etc, an overweight condition can also persist.

Yeasts and parasites can creep into any part of your body, especially in areas which are weak to begin with.  For instance, if your thyroid gland is weak, then opportunistic yeasts and parasites can particularly affect your metabolic function and cause further deterioration.  If yeast and parasitic infections are not treated, 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.

3)   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.  The latter includes poor eating habits.  Constant excessive consumption of sugar causes overwork and exhaustion of the thyroid gland.  On top of that, untreated yeast and parasitic infections will further weaken the thyroid function.

4)   Psychological Stress:

Some people thrive on chaos.  They tend to be in constant crises.  Because they are used to a dysfunctional behavioral pattern, they feel anxious or uncomfortable if their lives are peaceful.  Somehow they have to create a situation in which their frantic behavior can be justified. 

People who are not able to manage stress effectively tend to indulge themselves in emotional eating.  Food is a symbol of love and comfort across cultures, especially for those who associate food with parental approval, love and attention.

5)   Spiritual Imbalance:

As I’ve stated in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, many overweight people suffer from spiritual imbalance because they carry a great deal of ‘unfinished businesses’ 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.”

Understanding the causes for your overweight condition will help you focus on the issues you need to work through.  Usually there is a combination of causes.  Therefore, if you want to achieve a long-lasting result in weight loss, you need to employ a holistic approach to balance your body, mind and spirit.

In the next article, I will discuss how you can develop a Weight Loss Meal Plan and use Chinese herbal therapy to cleanse yeasts and parasites and boost your metabolism.  Stay tuned!
