tinnitusAbout 36 million Americans are suffering from tinnitus (ear ringing).  Ear ringing is a symptom of underlying disease.  The symptom is not affecting Americans only; it also affects people from all ethnic backgrounds and geographical locations. From time to time, clients from countries other than the US with tinnitus approached me for consultation.  The symptom of ear ringing appears to affect people globally.

Typical symptoms of tinnitus include persistent humming, hissing, whistling, clicking, roaring, buzzing, or hearing your own heartbeats.  Causes for tinnitus are various.  It can be caused by exposure to loud noise such as concerts, machinery, and aircraft.  It can also be caused by injuries, side effects of medication, stress, ear and/or brain infections, high sodium intake, poor dietary habits, etc.

The treatment for tinnitus thus requires a holistic approach.  Through working with clients with tinnitus, I have found that the following natural remedies can be helpful to reduce or eliminate ear ringing:

1. Environmental Change:

If loud noise was the trigger, changing the environment or even changing careers may be a relief for temporary suffering.  For example, some of my clients chose not to be aircraft mechanics, or truck drivers anymore, and that helped to stop their symptoms.

2. Discontinue Use of Medication:

If anti-hypertensive medication or aspirin gives you the side effects of ear ringing, discontinue the medication.  These drugs dilate vessels, and might increase pressure in the ear.

3. Effective Stress Management:

Stress may cause all kinds of physical illness.  Usually, I will ask my clients with tinnitus, “What is that you don’t want to hear?”  Spiritually speaking, tinnitus is symbolic of shutting down the outside world.  Once I guided my clients to gain insight into their life situations and learn a better coping mechanism, their symptoms reduced to a minimum.  Prayers and meditation can help reduce the symptoms.  This is also the case even with head injuries.

4. Herbal Treatment for Ear and/or Brain infections:

Yeast and parasitic infections of middle and inner ears and/or brain are very common cause for ear ringing.  Our Herbal Detox Program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) is very effective to clear the infections and reduce/eliminate the symptoms.

5.  Anti-yeast Nutritional Program:

The American Tinnitus Association notes that dietary habit plays a role in triggering ear ringing symptoms.  The Association urges people to limit consumption of artificial sweeteners, sugar, alcohol, tobacco and caffeine.

When I put my clients on an Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program with no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals, their symptoms subsided.  (See more details in my yeast free cookbook: Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.)  An Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program helps to prevent or limit the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites, which in turn limits the triggers of tinnitus.

6. Reduce Salt Intake:

According to the American Tinnitus Association, high sodium intake causes water retention and increases the pressure in the ear and thus triggers ear-ringing symptoms.  Restaurant food tends to be very salty.   Avoid using saltshakers as a habit.  This would also reduce your dependency on anti-hypertensive medication.

Ear ringing symptoms can be annoying and consuming, because they can impair your normal hearing ability, affect your sleeping patterns, and rob your efficiency of day-to-day functioning.  However, as described above, the effects of the symptoms can be minimized or eliminated.

Immune-System-Boosters-2Q.         I am doing much better on Dr. J’s Herbal Detox program for my candida

infections.  I am also on Dr. J’s anti-yeast nutritional program.  How long should I be on the program?

 

A.         It depends on how long you want to have quality of life!   Candida is a member of the yeast family.  Yeasts and parasites are “omnipresent” in human and animal bodies.

 

When your immune system is strong, you can control yeasts and parasites and co-exist with them harmoniously.  When your immune system is compromised, the little enemies will control you.  So, it’s very important for you to keep your immunity strong at all times.

 

As I stated in my previous articles regarding how to strengthen your immunity, you need to use a holistic approach including an anti-yeast nutritional program, herbal therapy, and stress management techniques.

 

To read previous articles regarding how to strengthen your immunity, please go to www.drjsblog.com.   Sign up as a member for free.   Then you will be able to read back issues and receive new articles.

sweet toothQ.        I have a terrible sweet tooth, like the size of King Kong. How can I correct it?

A.        Sugar craving is one of the symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections.  When yeasts and parasites hook onto your mucous membranes and suck your nutrients, they scream, “Feed me more!  Feed Me more!” If you don’t know what’s going on, you just feed them with sugary food every time they scream for it.  If not treated properly, over eating sugar can evolve into diabetes or uncontrollable weight gain.

Follow these steps:

1)    Change your dietary habits

Learn what to eat and what to avoid so that you can starve your little enemies, yeasts and parasites, and feed your body.  My yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking gives you recipes following my anti-yeast cooking principles: no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  You’ll receive as much benefit as the effort you put in.  Don’t wait for the perfect time.  Perfect time never comes!  Once you learn to feed your body with nourishing food and starve the yeasts and parasites, sugar-craving symptoms will be greatly reduced.

2)    Herbal Therapy

If you have severe symptoms of sugar craving, I would recommend taking our Herbal Detox Program and Herbal Cocktail to speed up the process. Yeast-Para Control removes excess yeasts and parasites quickly, and Cleansing-Balance Tea flushes the debris that Yeast-Para Control creates.  Herbal Cocktail nourishes your body and starves yeasts and parasites.

3)    Stress Management

Stress is part of life.  When you manage your stress effectively, stress    can propel you towards higher levels of success.  On the other hand, you might use stress as an excuse to indulge yourself in emotional eating, including eating sugary food.  In my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are details regarding tools you can use to manage your stress.  They include meditation, prayers, affirmation, etc.  I would encourage you to go to my website: www.drjsbest.com to download the Ten-minute Meditation Guide for free and meditate every day to reduce your day-to-day stress.

Q.  There is a lot of conflicting information on the Internet regarding Candida Cleansing Diet, what is your opinion on this?

A.  Indeed, it’s like a jungle out there in terms of information regarding the candida cleansing diet.   Oftentimes you are confused about what you can eat and what you should avoid when you try to heal yourself from candidiasis, or yeast and parasitic infections.

First of all, you need to understand that candida is a member of the yeast family.  Candida alone has 40 to 50 strains that are harmful to your health.  When yeasts are present, parasites also thrive.  I call them Siamese Twins.  Therefore, I would refer to yeast and parasite cleanse in this Q&A.

Also, the word “diet” seems to denote the meaning of being “limited” and “short term.”  Therefore, I prefer to call it an “Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program” because you can follow the nutritional principles for life to maintain optimal health.  The anti-yeast nutritional program I recommend contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeast, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals.   I developed these “Eight Commandments” after I conquered a severe case of yeast and parasitic infection, and remained symptom-free for several decades.

In my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking, you will find anti-yeast nutritional principles and recipes that nourish your body, but starve the yeasts and parasites.  The “Eight Commandments” detailed in my anti-yeast cookbook have stood the test of time.  My many clients and myself have been able to get well and stay well because of these anti-yeast nutritional principles.

When your immune system is strong, you can re-introduce food items that are on the no-no list if you go for moderation.   Occasionally, when I indulged on the no-no foods, I had to accept the consequences for it.  For example, if I had a small slice of ultra-sweet fruits such as watermelon, my body can handle it.  However, when I had a bigger slice, I would suffer from sugar headaches for a few days.  It becomes a matter of choice of what consequences you would accept when you deviate from my anti-yeast nutritional principles.

Also, please be aware that diet alone will not cure you when you suffer from chronic yeast and parasitic infections.  You do need to consider herbal therapy to eliminate excess yeasts and parasites quickly so that your body’s innate intelligence can be activated and healing can take place.  I formulated Yeast-Para Control to remove yeasts and parasites simultaneously.  Because yeasts and parasites go hand in hand, if you only treat yeast or only treat parasitic infection, sooner or later, both yeasts and parasites will come back together to “haunt” you.

I also formulated Cleansing-Balance Tea to flush the debris created by Yeast-Para Control.  It’s like this: Yeast-Para Control would scrub the toilet, and Cleansing-Balance Tea would flush the toilet.  When you combine these two formulas (Herbal Detox), together with the anti-yeast nutritional program, your body would begin to heal quickly.

As I stated in previous publications, yeasts and parasites are the “root of all evil” when health is concerned, and stress is the core of these roots.  Therefore, if you want to have long-lasting results, you must manage your stress effectively.  In my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are several techniques you can use to reduce your stress.  They include meditation, releasing deep-rooted negative emotions, prayers, and affirmations.  To start, you may go to our website: www.drjsbest.com to download a free 10-Minute Meditation Guide to reduce stress and increase your general wellbeing.

Consultation on how to heal yeast and parasitic infections and their related illnesses is available in person, over the phone or over Skype.  For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call (818) 472-2213 or send an e-mail to drj@drjsbest.com.  Skype name: academyofvibranthealth.

cancerawarenessAccording to the American Cancer Institute, cancer claims 7.6 million lives per year worldwide.  Cancer death rate is more than AIDS (1.8 million); tuberculosis (1.3 million); and malaria (830,000).

Many factors have been associated with cancer.  Tobacco, alcohol, pollution, an unhealthy work environment, food additives, pesticides, drugs, emotional stress and dietary habits have been cited as the most common factors causing cancer.

In my several decades of clinical practice, I have found that the same diet that is associated with yeast disorders is also associated with cancer.  For example, I have noticed that a high incidence of stomach and esophageal cancers among Asian populations is associated with a high intake of fermented, yeast-loaded pickles.  Another example is that when cancer clients walk into my office, I smell their heavy yeasty breath.

Moreover, Dr. Otto Warburg, a Nobel Prize winner in Science in 1931, demonstrates that a cancer cell has the metabolism of a plant cell.  He describes the process as “fermentation.”  A plant cell thrives on carbon dioxide and gives off oxygen as its waste product.  This is opposite to the function of  “normal cells.”

Other researchers also report that one of the probable mechanisms underlying carcinogenic processes is the cellular release of free oxygen radicals.  These free oxygen radicals contribute to DNA mutation (Willner, 1994).

Dr. Gaston Naessens, a renowned Canadian biologist in his research for a cancer solution, developed an advanced microscope capable of magnifying 30,000 times (standard microscopes are capable of magnifying 1,800 times).  This enabled him to carefully observe an important phenomenon called polymorphism (the ability to change form).  This is also known as the process of fermentation.

When the fermentation process takes place, a cell reverts itself to a more primitive state.  This results in more rapid growth and chaos.  Moreover, this fermentation process changes the biochemical codes or sensors of the cell.

Some researchers claim that all human beings have oncogenes (cancer genes).  Why do some people get cancer, and yet others don’t?  The answer is the immunity.

The weakened immune system cannot identify the invader and start the normal battle to get rid of this invader.  In fact, a weakened immunity may even adopt the identity of the foe (a fermented cancer cell) and attack a normal cell (Willner, 1994).  When a chaotic battle takes place, the so-called autoimmune disease or cancer is the result.

All the above information was detailed in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, Published in 1997.  At that time I was considered “ahead of the time.”  Nearly two decades later, some literature begins to be available on the Internet supporting my assertion that cancer is a severe case of yeast disorder.

“Is cancer treatable?”  I am sure that you are eager to hear the answer.

The answer is: “It depends.”

If people diagnosed with cancer rely on radiotherapy, or chemotherapy, or surgery with the hope to prolong their lives, I would say that they are heading toward the wrong direction on the freeway.  Radiation and chemotherapy destroy the immunity.  With surgery, there is heavy use of antibiotics that creates yeast overgrowth in the body.  When yeasts ferment, they mutate the normal cells, and thus create cancer cells.  Also, in the fermentation process, a chemical substance called propyl alcohol is released.  This substance feeds the parasites that have been dormant in every living body.  Thus, both yeasts and parasites are “activated” as a result of radiotherapy, or chemotherapy, or surgery.  If the above treatment methods are combined, then there is a “double whammy” or “triple whammy.”  Worse of all, after all that damage done to the body, the average survival rate is only five years!

My several decades of clinical experience working with people from all walks of life across several continents, suggests that when my cancer clients control the yeast overgrowth, they also slow down the cancer deterioration process.  Together with other holistic treatment methods, especially stress management and releasing deep-rooted negative emotions, many cancer clients are often able to be in “permanent remission.”

So the ultimate answer is: “Yes!  Cancer is treatable!” if one employs a holistic approach to remove both physical and mental toxins.  This includes 1) adopting an anti-yeast nutritional program to control the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites; 2) using herbal therapy to heal damaged cells quickly and improve the immunity, and 3) managing stress effectively, and releasing negative emotions such as anger, resentment, fear, regret, and guilt.

Cancer can be seen as a “wake-up call.”  If one can “wake up” and adopt a healthier lifestyle, the cancer experience is merely a “gift” from the divine source!

Please note: Candida is a member of the yeast family.  Therefore, candidiasis is also a form of yeast infection.

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis.  It affects about 8 million people in the United Kingdom and about 27 million people in the United States.

The symptoms of OA include aches and pain and stiffness of the joints.  In severe cases, the joints (especially small joints such as fingers) can be deformed.

The most common cause of OA identified by the medical community is wear and tear.  Based on my several decades of clinical observation, there are multiple causes for OA including poor dietary habit, yeast and parasitic infections, immobility, stress and carrying negative emotions.  Therefore, it requires a holistic approach to effectively treat OA.  The following are my recommendations:

Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program:

As detailed in my books, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing and Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking, an Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program contains my “Eight Commandments:” no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  This kind of nutritional program will nourish your body and starve your enemies within: yeasts and parasites.  Foods rich in Vitamins A and C will help build up hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in your body that will strengthen your joint support.  If you follow my Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program diligently, you will naturally consume plenty of Vitamins A and C.

Herbal Therapy:

Yeasts and parasites love the synovial fluid in the sac between two bones, your joints.  Synovial fluids contain sugar and protein that feed yeasts and parasites.  To prevent your little enemies from further “eating away” your connective tissues, you need to remove them from your body.  Our Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) is designed to remove these harmful, excess yeasts and parasites so that your body’s innate intelligence can have a clean slate to heal.

You can also consider making our Herbal Smoothie made with our Herbal Cocktail and a ripe banana that is rich in Vitamin A and other minerals.  Our Herbal Smoothie is great for repairing damaged tissues in joints and promotes joint strength.

 

Stress Management:

Every human being has yeasts and parasites.  When your immunity is strong, you can co-exist with them harmoniously.  When your immunity is compromised, they take over control.  Based on my several decades of clinical observation, stress is the No. 1 cause of lowered immunity.  Therefore, you need to learn how to manage your stress effectively.  Many roads lead to Rome.  Whatever you can do to reduce your day-to-day stress, you should do it consistently.  The following self-administered methods have proven to be effective in managing stress for my clients and myself as well:

Meditation:

Even though they were aware of the benefits of daily meditation, many of my clients told me that they were too busy, or lazy, or both, to be consistent.  Therefore, I came up with a 10-Minute Meditation Guide.  There are 1,440 minutes a day.  You should not have a hard time to come up with 10 minutes if you are serious in improving your health.  In this “fast” meditation, you can visualize that your body is healing (especially your joints)…. Go to our website: www.drjsbest.com to download this free gift.

Prayers and Chanting:

In order to connect your healing to a spiritual level, pray to the divine intelligence for guidance to the right resources so that you can heal whatever ails you within the least possible time.  Prayers are free, so what are you waiting for?

Chanting is the repetition of certain mantras.  Some of the mantras invoke help for healing.  Regardless of your religious beliefs, when you chant sincerely from your heart, you receive results.  Again, chanting is free.  What can you lose but your OA symptoms?

Exercise:

Yeasts and parasites love a still environment.  You need to keep moving to facilitate your blood circulation and energy flow; otherwise, a stagnated sewage system will create blockage and disease.  Low-impact exercise such as slow walking and in-place jogging are excellent for people with osteoarthritis.  Start with a few minutes and gradually build up.

 

Mental Detox:

There is a spiritual meaning for every physical symptom.  Arthritis in any form, such as osteoarthritis (OA) or rheumatoid arthritis (RA), symbolizes that you suppress your anger and frustration in your joints.  In order to get into a state of “permanent remission,” you need to learn to let go of negative emotions that are the core of your physical suffering.

If you are not effective in releasing negative emotions on your own, consultation is available.  Wherever you are in the world, we can help.  Both telephone consultation or consultation over Skype are available.

My Skype name: academyofvibranthealth.

Live consultation sessions are also available at our offices in downtown Los Angeles.  Call us at (213) 489-1712 or (800) 715-3053 to make an appointment.

Belly.In the previous article, I discussed the symptoms of leaky gut syndrome and its possible causes.  To recap, the leaky gut allows substances such as toxins, microbes, undigested foods, waste, and larger than normal macromolecules to leak through an abnormally permeable gut wall.  Consequently, this causes your immune system to react.   You may experience symptoms including bloating, diarrhea, indigestion, unhealthy weight loss, sugar craving, genital yeast infections, chronic fatigue, mind fog, and depression.

Possible causes of leaky gut syndrome include yeast and parasitic infections, poor dietary habit, and psychological stress.  This may lead one towards liberal use of antibiotics and other potent drugs, which may only exacerbate the problem.  Luckily, leaky gut syndrome is reparable.  In this article I will address the holistic treatment for repairing leaking guts and regain health and vitality.

Herbal Therapy for Yeast and Parasitic Infections:

To prevent the worsening of leaky gut syndrome, the pathogenic yeasts and parasites need to be removed simultaneously as soon as possible from your intestines.   A strong herbal detox program is needed to perform this task quickly and effectively.  Our Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) is designed for this purpose.  Usually within days of taking these two herbal formulas, my clients reported seeing debris of yeasts, eggs of parasites, or bodies of mature worms in the toilet.  Debris of yeasts looks like hair, cotton, clouds, or mucous in the urine.  Eggs of parasites look like sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, brown rice, or white specs in the stool.  Mature worms look like string cheese, spaghetti, colored rot, or broken tree leaves.  Yeasts and parasites have more than 250,000 species.  I will not be able to describe all of them!

You also need herbal formulas that can repair the lining of your digestive tract and allow healthy tissues to grow.  Our Herbal Cocktailhas many great functions including repairing the lining of your damaged intestinal walls.

 

Anti-Yeast Nutritional program:

An anti-yeast nutritional program contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  Even though this is a tall order for most Americans who are used to the Standard American Diet (SAD), do the best you can to follow these “Eight Commandments.”  To learn more about what to eat and what to avoid, read my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.  Both hard-copy books and e-books are available on our website: www.drjsbest.com.

 

Manage Your Stress Effectively: 

Most of clients report to me that their leaky gut syndrome flared up when they were under stress.  Stress is a part of life.  When managed effectively, stress can propel you towards higher levels of success or spirituality.  Many roads lead to Rome.  Try different ways to reduce your stress.  Daily prayers, meditation and exercise are very simple and effective ways to manage stress.  If you do not know how to meditate, visit my website at www.drjsbest.com and download the free10-Minute Meditation Guide.  Practice 10-Minute Meditation daily, and you will enjoy newfound peace and harmony.

 

Use Antibiotics or Other Potent Drugs Very Cautiously:

As explained in the previous article, the western medical establishment uses antibiotics as a “catch all” magic bullet for all infections without consideration of strengthening the immunity.  Cortisone is another popular drug used to inhibit the inflammation process but destroys the immunity.  They may be effective in inhibiting inflammations for a short period of time; however, in the long run, they weaken your immunity, and thus allow yeasts to overgrow.  Remember, yeasts and parasites are “Siamese Twins”.  They go hand in hand.  When yeasts overgrow in your body, so do parasites.

As I mentioned in Part 1 of this article, when people developed leaky gut syndrome, they usually encounter all the factors described above.  However, if you employ a holistic approach towards healing leaky guts, you will experience improvement.  Be patient with yourself, and with your life.  Leaky gut syndrome is curable!

Dr. Juliet Tien (Dr. J) is a leading expert in treating female or male yeast and parasitic infections, as well as over-weight or under-weight conditions.  She is also the author of Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing and Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.
