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.

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.

leaky gutWhat is Leaky Gut Syndrome?

According to Wikipedia, leaky gut syndrome is a proposed condition of a damaged bowel lining.  The term is used by some holistic health or alternative medicine practitioners, but is not a recognized diagnosis.   It is hypothesized that leaky gut syndrome is caused by increased permeability of the gut walls resulting from toxins, poor diet, parasites, infection, or medication.  The leaky gut then allows substances such as toxins, microbes, undigested food, waste, or larger than normal macromolecules to leak through an abnormally permeable gut wall.  Proponents propose that these out-of-place substances affect the body directly or initiate an immune reaction.

Symptoms of Leaky Gut Syndrome:

According to my clinical experience, leaky gut syndrome is a cluster of symptoms caused by the digestive tract inflammation.  They include: food allergies, bloating, diarrhea, stomach pain, extreme fatigue, mind fog, poor digestion and absorption, arthritis-like aches and pain, sleeping disorder, etc.  The symptoms mimic several diagnoses such as fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Crohn’s disease, Lyme disease, Irritated Bowel Syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis, yeast and parasitic infections, etc.

For many sufferers, it’s just a relief to finally put a name to the symptoms; however, it does not change the fact that their suffering continues.  So, it’s important to know the possible causes of these symptoms and the holistic treatment for them.

Possible causes of Leaky Gut Syndrome:

1)    Yeast and parasitic infections:

Yeasts and parasites use their vampire-like hooks to hook onto the mucous membranes and suck nutrients from the host.  If they develop colonies in the gastric-intestinal tract (GI Tract), then stomach ulcers or leaky guts can be a result.  Not only do they suck nutrients from the host, but they also damage the lining of the walls of the Gastric-intestinal Tract.

2)    Poor dietary habit:

The Standard American Diet (SAD) is loaded with sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, caffeine, alcohol, and chemicals.  The SAD feeds the yeasts and parasites and worsens the symptoms.

3)    Psychological stress:

Carrying negative emotions such as anger, resentment, fear, regret, and guilt is like driving a car with the hand-break on.  It causes wear and tear on the car (your immune system).  When your immunity is weak, all kinds of invaders such as bacteria, viruses, yeasts and parasites can defeat you and cause a variety of illnesses.  That which is eating you psychologically is also eating you physically.

4)    Liberal use of antibiotics and other potent drugs:

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.  In fact, excessive use of antibiotics and cortisone destroys the immunity, because the potent drugs kill both the good and bad bacteria floras in your intestines.  The “bad guys” such as harmful yeasts take no time to come back; while the “good guys” take a long time to rebuild.  Yeasts are airborne, and they are “omnipresent.”  They can re-enter your weak body anywhere, anytime.  Thus, an imbalance is created.   A vicious circle ensues.   To make the situation more complicated, when yeasts are present, parasites also thrive because of their symbiotic relationships.   As I explained in previous articles, when yeasts ferment, they create a chemical substance called “propyl alcohol” and that substance feeds parasites.  To return the favor, parasites use their body surface as a platform for yeasts to grow and expand.

When people develop leaky gut syndrome, usually they encounter all the factors I described above.  Leaky gut syndrome can be repaired if you employ a holistic approach, and be patient with yourself, and with your life!

In the next article, I will discuss the holistic treatment to repair leaky gut syndrome.  Stay tuned.

fluoride-detoxQ. Do I need to take friendly bacteria or yeast such as saccharomyces boulardii for my health?

A. If you are on Dr. J’s Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea), then you don’t need to take probiotics (friendly bacteria or yeasts).   When excessive yeasts and parasites are removed by our Herbal Detox program, your body’s innate intelligence will create a natural balance in your body.

Probiotics usually need to be refrigerated and taken ASAP before they lose their strength.  It can beneficial to take them especially for improving digestive functions and inhibit infections.  However, our Herbal Detox program can help you accomplish these functions and much more.  For more information, look us up at www.drjsbest.com, or follow us on facebook at www.fb.com/drjsbest.

02.18.13. Anger weakens you

Read Full Post »

I believe in Dr. J and her products!  I used to catch flu and colds all the time from my grandchildren who are school kids.  I have been on Dr. J’s Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) and Female Vitality for one month.  I am amazed that when my husband and grandchildren caught colds, I don’t get them like I used to!  Obviously my immune system has become stronger because of the herbs!

I also follow the principles in Dr. J’s books (Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing and Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking).  They certainly help me stay away from sugar, dairy, and wheat products.  Actually it’s not that hard when I learned to use the substitutes based on Dr. J’s cookbook.

Dr. J recommended that I should stay on the full dosage of the herbal formulas for another three to six months.  Needlessly to say, I am ordering the herbal products again!  Thanks Dr. J!

In a previous article, I mentioned that PMS (Pre-menstrual Syndrome) is easily treatable if you follow five drug-free remedies:

1) Dietary Change to nourish your body and starve yeasts and parasites

2) Herbal Therapy to detox and balance your hormones

3) Regular Exercise to improve your blood circulation

4) Stress Management to reduce mood swings

5) Sexercise to facilitate your energy flow and increase your self-esteem.

To elaborate:

Dietary Change:

You need to follow “Dr. J’s Eight Commandments:” no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  Why?  Here is the answer:  the first 7 items are the favorite foods for yeasts and parasites.  The 8th item (chemicals) clog your liver and kidneys and deplete your immune system.   It may be a tall order to wean yourself from these items, since the Standard American Diet (SAD) is full of these no-no’s.  Do the best you can.  If you could do 50%, you will get 50% of the benefits.  If you could do 75%, you will get 75% of the benefits.  If you do 0%, you will continue to feed your little enemies in your body, and you will continue to struggle with PMS every month!  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.  Both hard copy and e-books are available.

Herbal Therapy:

Adhering to my yeast-free nutritional program prevents new assaults.  However, if you have already accumulated toxins for many years, use herbal therapy to obtain better and faster results.  Within three months, my clients usually report a marked improvement, or even complete freedom from PMS symptoms.  Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) and Hormonal Regeneration(Female Vitality) are favored by my clients to combat PMS.  By removing excess yeasts and parasites, and cleansing your liver and kidneys, you allow your body to have a clean slate to heal.  Adding Female Vitality to regenerate the hormonal system facilitates the healing process, improves your mental concentration, and uplifts your mood.

In part 3 of this article, I will elaborate on how regular exercise, stress management and sexercise can also help you say good-bye to PMS.  Stay tuned!

I would say that Dr. J’s Herbal Detox herbs (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) are “king of herbs”!

When I had a root canal removed, I did not want to take antibiotics to mess up my immune system and make yeast infections flare up.  So, I followed Dr. J’s recommendations and doubled up on Yeast-Para Control and drank two pots of Cleansing-Balance Tea a day.  The natural antibiotics in Yeast-Para Control worked very well without the side effects of western drugs.  The Cleansing-Balance Tea flushed toxins in my body.  My body felt so clean and I had no complications!

As mentioned in the previous article, leaky gut syndrome is not a recognized diagnosis by the western medical establishment.  The symptoms of leaky gut syndrome mimic symptoms discussed in previous articles including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, Irritated Bowel Syndrome, Lyme disease, etc.  It does not matter what kind of diagnosis you have, what matters is that you need to get well!

Many medical doctors may say there was “nothing wrong” with you according to their tests; or worse, you were told it was “all in your head” and gave you prescriptions for depression, pain, insomnia, etc.

Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience working with clients with inflammations of the gastric-intestinal tract (GI tract), the following have been the most effective holistic treatment methods:

1)    Yeast-free nutritional program:

If you have been reading my articles, you must be familiar with my yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  My clients call it “Dr. J’s Eight Commandments”.  You might ask, “How long should I stay on Dr. J’s yeast-free nutritional program?”  This is essentially a nutritional program for life.  This is why I do not label this program a “diet.”  Diets denote a temporary eating habit.  If you want to nourish your body and starve the yeasts and parasites, it is recommended that you stay on our yeast-free nutritional program as much as you can, especially in the first three to six months of the treatment.  When your immunity is stronger, you can “relax” a little bit on the no-no items.  However, you do need to prepare for the consequences whenever you deviate from our yeast-free nutritional program.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

 

2)    Herbal Therapy

Based on my clinical experience, I have found that many diagnoses share the same symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections.  Once we remove excessive yeasts and parasites in the body, the inflammation of the GI tract is under control.  Our Yeast-Para Control formula is designed for this purpose.  According to my best knowledge, our Yeast-Para Control is the only formula that can remove yeasts and parasites simultaneously.  Remember, yeasts and parasites are like Siamese twins.  They must be removed simultaneously from your body in order for you to get well.  Yeast-Para Control loosens the toxins in the body, and Cleansing-Balance Tea flushes the toxins.  The two formulas work synergistically together to remove excess yeasts and parasites.

Herbal Cocktail is essential to repair the damaged linings of stomach and intestines (both small and large intestines).  It’s a high protein herbal drink rich in absorbable nutrients and digestive enzymes.  You can mix with Cleansing-Balance Tea or make a delicious herbal smoothie.

Fatigue and mind fog are common symptoms for people with leaky gut syndrome. The Hormonal Regeneration program (Female Vitality or Male Vitality) gives you calm energy and increases mental clarity and productivity.  These products also improve sex drive. 

The combination of the above formulas would help you experience symptom relief to a greater or lesser degree.  How long do you need to stay on the herbal program?  It depends on your health condition, commitment and budget.  I customize the treatment program to suit your individual needs.

3)    Stress management

Stress is part of life.  No one is immune to it.  Daily meditation, affirmations, prayers, and deep emotional releasing technique, are all very helpful to manage stress effectively.   Read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, for details.

 

4)    Proper hydration

Drink eight to ten cups of liquid per day to ensure smooth elimination of toxins.  Initially this might seem to worsen the symptoms of diarrhea, but eventually the condition will improve.  Besides, chronic diarrhea can cause dehydration, which in turn can cause many other symptoms, such as muscle cramps.  If you are on our Herbal Detoxprogram, you will be instructed to drink at least six cups of Cleansing-Balance Tea, in addition to our herbal smoothies, soups and water.

5)    Low-impact exercise

When you experience chronic fatigue, the last thing you want to do is exercise.  However, it’s important to “force” yourself to do some low-impact exercise such as slow walking in your neighborhood.  You may start from ten minutes and slowly increase based on your body’s strength.  Exercise generates endorphins (the morphine within – a natural pain killer), and it will help reduce arthritis-like aches and pain.  Fresh air and better blood circulation will also improve your overall well-being.
