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!

Q.        I am taking oral medication for Type 2 diabetes.  I would like to be off medication if I could.  I would also like to lose 50 pounds.  What should I do?

A.        Type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes can be controlled by a lifestyle change.  I am glad that you want to lose weight.  As I indicated in a previous article, fat cells are not as effective as muscle cells in utilizing insulin to burn and turn sugar into cellular fuel.  Losing excess weight (fat) and exercising regularly will strengthen your muscle cells and help better utilize the blood sugar in your blood stream, and thus reduce your oral medication dependency.

Elevated blood sugar in your blood stream feeds your little enemies – yeasts and parasites – in your body.  This can create many complications.

Here are my recommendations for people who are committed to weaning themselves off oral medication for diabetes.

1)    Yeast-free nutrition

You need to adhere to a nutritional program that contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeast, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals (my clients call this Dr. J’s Eight Commandments).  This nutritional program will feed your body and starve yeasts and parasites, so you can activate your body’s innate intelligence for healing.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

 

2)    Exercise Daily

Any kind of exercises that you like or suit your energy level would help.  Slow walking 30 minutes a day is a good start.  Exercise burns calories and turns blood sugar into energy for you.  Thus, you will need less oral medication to bring the blood sugar level down.

 

3)    Herbal Therapy

In order for you to lose weight effectively, you need to remove physical toxins first.  Our Herbal Detox: Yeast-Para Controland Cleansing-Balance Teaworks wonders to remove your toxic waste.  The Weight Management program (containing Herbal Cocktail, Fitness Regularand Fitness Plus) is also very important for you.  Herbal Cocktail will curb your appetite and stop your sugar craving.  Fitness Regular (a fat blocker) will prevent the fats in your food to form fatty cells (provided that you eat sensibly).  Fitness Regular is also designed to facilitate your blood circulation and balance your blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol.  Fitness Plus(a fat burner) will burn the existing fat in your body and turn it onto energy.  If you combine the Herbal Detoxand Weight Management programs, you can expect to lose an average of two to three pounds a week in a healthy and safe way.

Most diabetics experience low overall energy and sexual energy due to insufficient use of blood sugar for energy, as well as due to the onset of yeasts and parasitic infections.  If that’s the case for you, Male Vitality (or Female Vitality for females) would be a good consideration to increase your energy level.

 

After you reach your ideal weight, you can be continue on the maintenance dosage to stay healthy. In the process of doing so, your body will tell you how much medication you need to keep the blood sugar level down.  You may adjust the amount of medication according to your blood sugar tests.  Usually my clients work with me closely to monitor the medication amount in the beginning, until they have learned how to listen to their bodily functions and adjust the dosage on their own.

 

4)    Remove Mental Toxins

Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience working with people from all walks of life, I have found that people with diabetes usually have some kind of “regret” in their lives.  When they are willing to do some “dirty work” to dig out the roots, their results are profound and long lasting.  I would highly recommend psychological and spiritual counseling.  Otherwise, read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.  You will learn some techniques to release negative emotions and better manage stress.

Some of my clients were able to wean themselves completely off the oral medication for diabetes.  It depends on how committed you are to the holistic treatment and a total lifestyle change.  You need to be willing to remove both physical and mental toxins.  As a helping professional, I am here to offer you the best possible knowledge, skills, and products to gain vibrant health.  However, you are the one who needs to travel the journey.
