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.

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.

According to my clinical experience, Leaky gut syndrome is a cluster of symptoms caused by digestive tract inflammation.  Symptoms include: 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, Chrohn’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.  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 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, they also damage the linings on the walls of the GI tract.

 

2)    Poor dietary habit:

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, or guilt is like driving a car with the hand-break on.  It causes wear and tear to 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 all kinds of illnesses.

 

4)    Liberal use of antibiotics:

 

The western medical establishment uses antibiotics as a “catch all” magic bullet for all infections without consideration to strengthening the immunity.  In fact, excessive use of antibiotics 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 little time to come back; while the “good guys” take a long time to rebuild.  Thus, an imbalance is created, and yeast overgrowth becomes an additional health issues for you to handle.

 

In the next article, I will discuss the holistic treatment to repair the leaky guts and regain your health.  Stay tuned.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is an illness characterized by a cluster of symptoms including persistent, recurrent fatigue, headaches, achy muscles, poor digestive function (such as constipation, diarrhea, and bloatedness), low-grade fever, foggy mind, confusion, irritability, lack of motivation and depression.

           

            Both men and women can be affected by Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  In my practice, however, I have observed that most of the clients are women between the ages of 20 and 50.  The personality characteristics of people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are highly successful, educated, articulate, and always on the go.  Prior to the onset of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, they were very active with their career activities, and/or were caretakers.

 

            After several years of highly charged activities, they “ran out of gas” and collapsed.  These people tended to give, give, give, but did not receive the nurturing which was essential to replenish their reservoir.  The “Too Pooped to Pop” feelings are very real to the sufferers.  However, most western-trained physicians did not take them seriously.  Some were referred to psychiatrists by their physicians for psychotropic drugs with the reasoning that it was all in their heads!  This, of course, makes the matter worse!

           

            People with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have often suffered for many years without a proper diagnosis and treatment.  Prior to starting our holistic treatment program, many of my clients had to be on medical disability because they could not carry out regular daily functions which were routine for them before.  In some severe cases, daily chores such as brushing teeth or cooking dinner can be taxing for the sufferer. 

            

Basically, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome shares similar symptoms with mono-nucleosis, Epstein-Barr virus, candidiasis, Crohn’s disease, as well as yeast and parasitic infections.

   

Causes of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:

           

            As mentioned earlier, people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome tend to be high achievers and devoting caretakers.  The major causes for their collapse include: “Busy-Taking-Care-of-Others Syndrome”, poor dietary habits, and yeast and parasitic infections.

  

Busy-Taking-Care-of-Others Syndrome:

           

Many people, especially women, have assumed a caretaking role.  They play their roles so well that they often forget about themselves.  They are so busy taking care of other people’s needs that they don’t have time to take care of their own needs.  Connie is a good example:

 

            As a nurse, Connie had been a hard worker in hospitals for more than 10 years.  She had been very active in volunteer activities such as the Red Cross or other charity groups.  Her mother died of breast cancer when she was five years old.  Being the only child, she had been a caretaker for her frail father since she was a teen. 

 

            Since she was always on the run, she was on the convenient Standard American Diet (SAD) even though she was familiar with what was right for her to eat.  The onset of fatigue, headaches, poor mental concentration, weight loss, lack of motivation and depression came slowly in a period of three to six months.  Then, she totally collapsed and became bedridden when her boyfriend broke up with her.

  

Poor Dietary Habits:

 

            People who are busy taking care of others usually suffer from low self-esteem.  When they don’t think much of themselves, naturally they don’t take good care of themselves.  Everybody comes first; they come last.  This tendency is also reflected in their dietary habits.  Even though Connie was a consulting nutritionist for an outpatient clinic, she did not practice what she preached.  Her diet was filled with sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine and chemicals.  Despite the fact she knew she was “allergic” to those kinds of foods, she could not take the time to go to health food stores to shop for the right kinds of foods.

 

Yeast and Parasitic Infections:

 

As explained in great details in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, many factors contribute to yeast and parasitic infections.  Poor dietary habits and chronic psychological stress are two main causes among others.  Yeasts and parasites have strong hooks that can suck nutrition from the intestines.  After they are well fed, they deposit toxins.  As a result, a cluster of symptoms including chronic fatigue, allergies, digestive problems, etc. will weaken the immune system and create a vicious circle.

 

The holistic treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrom will be discussed in the next article.  Stayed tuned!

It is common sense that a strong immune system is the foundation for good health.  When your immunity is weak, a variety of diseases can flourish in your body.  Here is an analogy: when the police force is strong in a society, there will be social order; when the police force is weak, gangsters take over, and people would live in chaos and fear.  Scientists have reported that all of us have cancer genes in our body.  It is only when our immune system is compromised that our body cells become fermented and turn into cancer cells.

So the question is: How do I strengthen my immunity?

It seems to be a simple question, but it requires a comprehensive answer.  Base on my more than three decades of clinical experiences helping people from all walks of life heal various health issues, here are my recommendations:

1)    Yeast-Free Nutritional program:

As I have stated in previous articles, a yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals (Dr. J’s Eight Commandments as my clients called it) will prevent new toxins from harming your immune system.  I know this is a tall order because most people are so used to the Standard American Diet (SAD) which is loaded with my no-no’s.  Read my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking to learn what to eat and what to avoid.  I recommend doing the best you can.  If you can do 50%, you will get 50% of the benefits; if you can do 75%, you will get 75% of the benefits.  Of course, if you make 0% of the effort, you will get 0% of the benefits.

2)    Herbal Detox:

Our Herbal Detox program contains Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea. Most people understand that their pets need to de-worm periodically. I have news for you: human bodies host yeasts and parasites just like animals.  I recommend Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea, full-dosage, for at least 3-6 months a year depending on your lifestyle and living environment.  If you already have some health issues, you will need to stay on the Herbal Detox program longer until symptoms subside, then stay on a maintenance dosage.  Since yeasts and parasites go hand in hand, you must treat both simultaneously.  When you are on our Herbal Detox program, you will see the evidence in your toilet.  No need to have laboratory tests to prove that you carry “unwanted tenants!”

3)    Hormonal Regeneration:

Our Female Vitality or Male Vitality is designed to balance your hormonal system and give you calm energy, mental clarity, and uplift your mood.  This, in turn, will improve your problem solving ability and reduce the stress in your life.  When you are able to handle your stress effectively, you will have a heightened immunity.

 4)    Weight Management:

More than 60% of Americans are overweight (or have excessive fat).  Many people go on and off starvation diets attempting to control their weight, consequently damage their immunity.  If you want to lose weight, do it the safe and healthy way.  Follow my yeast-free nutritional regimen and get on our Weight Management program: Herbal Cocktail, Fitness Regular, and Fitness Plus.  By taking these actions, you will safely lose about two to three pounds per week consistently.  Herbal Cocktail is a high protein herbal drink designed to stop your sugar craving and curb your appetite for junk food.  Fitness Regular is a fat blocker designed to balance your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol.  Fitness Plus is a fat burner designed to burn the existing fat in your body.  When you are physically fit, you will have stronger immunity.

5)    Proper Hydration:

70% of our body weight is water.  Dehydration can cause the increase of mucous, yeast overgrowth, and many other health problems.  It’s important to drink eight to ten cups (about eight oz. each cup) a day to maintain proper hydration.  One tea bag of our caffeine-free Cleansing-Balance Tea makes six cups of tea.  I have also included several soup recipes in my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast CookingYou can make a delicious smoothie with our Herbal Cocktail. Purified water is also effective.  You have plenty of ways to hydrate your body properly.

6)    Exercise:

Daily exercise improves blood circulation and increases the supply of oxygen and nutrients to your body cells, and thus strengthens your immunity.  Furthermore, yeasts and parasites love a still environment.  A body in motion can reduce yeast and parasitic infections.  Exercise also enhances the absorption of herbal nutrients if you are taking supplements. You don’t need to go to the gym to exercise.  Slow walking or jogging in place is just as effective, and the price is right!  It’s free!

7)    Rest:

When your body is exhausted, the immune system can break down.  Everyone requires different amounts of sleep.  Find a happy medium for your body.  Usually seven to eight hours of sleep is important for your body to recuperate.  If you feel that you aren’t getting enough sleep, then incorporate my ten-minute meditation (see my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing) and/or cat naps during the day which are very effective.

8)    Manage Stress Effectively:

Stress, if managed properly, can motivate and propel you to a higher level of success.  Otherwise, it can cause wear and tear down your immune system.  My book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, gives you many tools to manage your stress effectively.  Emotional Releasing Technique, writing a “Reconciliation Letter”, meditation, prayers, and affirmations are but a few examples.

Your immune system is like a machine containing various sizes of cogs and screws.  Each cog needs to operate harmoniously together in order to yield the best efficiency.  A car needs regular oil and air filter changes every 3,000 miles.  Your body needs regular maintenance just like your car.  Take good care of your body so that you can get best mileage out of it!

Cancer claims more than half a million lives every year. The cost of “treating” cancer patients in the United States alone is over 100 billion dollars a year.  In the past 100 years, cancer research has not made much progress in treating cancer successfully.

 

Causes of Cancer:

Many factors have been associated with cancer.  Tobacco, alcohol, pollution, an unhealthy work environment, food additives, pesticides, drugs, dietary habits and emotional stress have been cited as the most common factors causing cancer.  Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience, I have found that yeast and parasitic infections have been closely associated with cancer.  Yeast and parasitic infections can be labeled as the root of all evils so far as physical health is concerned, with psychological factors being at the core of these roots.  My treatment strategy is to deal with the physical and psychological issues simultaneously.

Holistic Treatment for Cancer:

Some clients chose not to have any invasive treatment methods, while others chose to have surgery and/or chemotherapy, and/or radiotherapy.  I have worked with clients at different stages of cancer with or without Western treatment modalities.  

From a physical perspective, ALL cancer clients experience yeast fermentation in the body.  When the body cells are fermented, they turn into cancer cells.  This has been documented by Dr. Otto Warburg, a Nobel Prize winner in 1931 and Dr. Gaston Naessens, a Canadian biologist.  Since yeasts and parasites are like Siamese Twins, they go hand in hand.  So, both yeast and parasitic infections are present in the cancer condition.  Therefore, I give my clients our Herbal Detox formulas: Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance TeaYeast-Para Control is designed to remove excess yeasts, parasites, and toxins.  Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to flush the “debris” and cleanse the liver and kidneys.  Female Vitality or Male Vitality is very helpful when cancer clients are going through chemotherapy or radiotherapy and experience fatigue.  Herbal Cocktail is great for nourishment or combating nausea due to the side effects of chemo or radiotherapy.

Many Chinese or Western herbal ingredients can be helpful in building the immune system.  However, single ingredients are too weak to restore a cancer client’s health.  I usually have more than 20 ingredients in each of my formulas.  They work to enhance each other’s main positive effects and eliminate the possible side effects.  Our “Seven Herbal Wonders” have been available to my clients for 15 years (and still counting), and have helped countless clients build up their immune system.

In addition to the Herbal Detox program, I also guide my clients (especially cancer clients) to stay on the yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals (Dr. J’s Eight Commandments).  The Herbal Detox program works to cleanse existing toxins, while the yeast-free nutritional program works to prevent the creation of new toxins in the body.   My yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking helps my clients learn more about what to eat and what to avoid.

From a psychological perspective, different types of cancer have different symbolic meanings.  For example, breasts symbolize love and nurturing.  People with breast cancer usually perceive that they don’t get the love and approval they desire.  Therefore, my approach is to guide my clients to release negative emotions such as anger, resentment, fear, guilt and regret, and to learn to love themselves.  I offer my clients many tools to accomplish this.  They include spiritual psychological counseling, the Emotional Releasing Technique, self-hypnosis, meditation, prayers, affirmations, guided imagery, etc.  You can find more details in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

After more than 30 years of clinical experience dealing with all kinds of illnesses, including cancer, I have learned that as a helping professional, I am not here to save everybody’s life.   I am just here to help my clients live or die more comfortably.  Each person has his or her life journey to travel. My role is to offer a helping hand in making my client’s life journey easier.

Yeasts are everywhere.  They are in the air we breath, the water we drink, on the furniture we touch, on the ground or grass we walk on, on the skin that gets infected, on the pet’s fur, etc.  When the immune system is strong, the body can co-exist with yeasts, just like a good police force can keep a good social order.  When the police force (the immune system) is weak, then chaos will be the result.

Indulgence in yeast favorite food (Standard American Diet – SAD) that contains sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, cafeine, nicotin, and chemicals, excessive use of antibiotics, lack of exercise, pre-existing illnesses, poor hygene, sexual contact, and psychological stress, can cause the breakdown of the immune system and the thriving of yeasts.

Psychological stress is the primary cause for yeast disorders.  Unfinished business, boredom and “Busy-Taking-Care-of-Others Syndrome” are common causes for chronic psychological stress.

The most effective way for treating yeast infections or candidiasis is using a holistic approach including yeast-free nutrition, herbal therapy, stress management, and spiritual counseling.   For more information, visit www.drjsbest.com.  I also provide consultation via telephone or Skype.  For appointment, call (800) 715-3053 or e-mail: drj@drjsbest.com.

Healthy regards,

Dr. J
