As mentioned in previous articles, yeast infections do not discriminate against age, gender, ethnicity, geographic location, or socio-economic status.  The youngest client I worked with was a two week old “cocaine baby.”

Common Symptoms of Yeast Infections in Children:

The most common yeast infection symptoms I have seen in infants include: diaper rashes, colic (bloating), constipation, diarrhea, trench mouth, and geographical tongue.  Among toddlers and school-age children, the following are common symptoms: mid-ear infections, asthma, digestive problems, allergies, frequent cold and flues, and low energy.

Based on my observation in the past three decades working with children with yeast infections, the following are probable causes:

Possible Causes of Yeast infections in children:

1.    Lactose Intolerance:

Most infants and young children are allergic to cow milk products.  Dairy is an item on the no-no list.  Some bay formulas also have added sugar that also feeds yeasts.

2.    Dampness

The damp environment of diapers is a good incubator for yeast overgrowth.  Diaper rashes are very common if the baby’s diapers are not kept dry and clean.  Skin rashes on the face or other parts of the body are also common when the baby excessively sweats.

 

3.    Dietary Habits:

When children are fed “convenient food,” they are prone to having yeast infections.  The Standard American Diet (SAD) is loaded with sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, caffeine, and chemicals that feed the yeasts in the body and deplete the filtering functions of liver and kidneys.

4.    Excessive Use of Antibiotics

Children with yeast infections tend be misdiagnosed by their pediatricians as having bacterial infections and mistreated with excessive amounts of antibiotics.  This, in turn, perpetuates yeast infections.

5.    Congenital Causes:

Most babies with yeast infections were born with symptoms.  When the pregnant mother experiences a lot of stress, or is addicted to sugar, alcohol, or cigarette smoking, or the father of the baby has yeast infections, chances are the mother will have yeast infection symptoms.  The mother can give her yeast infections to the baby through the blood stream or birth canal.

6.    Vitamin L (L for Love) Deficiency:

Children often feel unloved or “guilty” about their parents’ divorce.  Many asthma or mid-year infection cases (which are linked to ADD or ADHD) are associated with a broken or chaotic family life.

 

In the next article, I will discuss drug-free, holistic treatment for children with yeast infections.  Stay tuned.

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.

According to the National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research, at least 40 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders (insomnia) and another 20 to 30 million experience occasional sleep problems.

Causes of insomnia may include a wide variety of things such as stress (too many things on one’s mind), anxiety, depression, side effects of medication one takes, the amount of caffeine one drinks (caffeinated coffee and/or tea),  going to bed hungry, etc.

Common symptoms of insomnia include:

  • Difficulty falling asleep at night or getting back to sleep after waking during the night.
  • Sleep is light and fragmented
  • The need of taking sleeping pills, and/or use of nightcaps in order to get to sleep.
  • Experience of sleepiness, fatigue, low energy, poor mental concentration, low productivity, depression, and irritability during the day.

Drug Free, Holistic Treatment for Insomnia:

Based on my more than 30 years of clinical experience, the most effective natural remedies are to remove both physical and mental toxins.  The following have been reported by my clients as most effective:

1)    Yeast-Free Nutritional Program:

When yeasts and parasites are well fed, they can keep you awake at night, because they love a still environment.  As much as you can, stay on a yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine nor chemicals.   To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

1)    Herbal Therapy:

Our Herbal Detox program: Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea are designed to remove excess yeasts, parasites, and toxins.  Therefore, you can rest more peacefully and harmoniously at night.  Staying on our Herbal Detox program may help you wean yourself off of medication you may be taking, especially medication that is supposed to treat other drugs’ side effects.

2)    Regular Exercise:

In addition to your exercise routine during the day time, slow walking after dinner is particularly beneficial to your digestion and can help you sleep better.  The endorphins (endo-morphine) generated through this low impact exercise give a sense of calmness and harmony.

3)    Not Going to Bed Hungry:

An empty stomach can keep you awake!  Have some sugar free, dairy free, wheat free, and yeast free snack ready if you must eat something before bed.  In my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking, there are some recipes for baked goods such as muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. you can bake, and have them ready if need them to avoid hypoglycemia.  Have one of these baked goods with a warm cup of Cleansing-Balance Tea and a scoop of Herbal CocktailYour stomach will be happy and this will help you sleep through the night.  For a parallel, have you observed that hungry babies tend to wake up frequently at night?

4)    Salt Shower and Warm Bath:

Take a salt shower first, then soak in warm to hot water for 10 to 15 minutes before bed.  Salt showers clean the negative energy that has been clinging onto you; and the warm bath relaxes your tight muscles.

5)    Ten-Minute Meditation:

For those with tight schedules, my Ten-Minute meditation technique works very well for insomnia because it’s short and easy to follow.  To learn this simple technique, read my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

6)    Emotional Releasing Technique:

Another technique you can use is the Emotional Releasing Technique in my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic HealingThis can help you release the insomniac energy and quickly help you get to or fall back to sleep.

If you combine any of the above recommendations, chances are you will have a surprisingly good night’s sleep and say goodbye to insomnia without drugs!  If your sleep disorders are caused by unfinished business, you will get long-lasting results if you uproot the core of your stress, anxiety, or depression.  You might need to consult with an experienced counselor who specializes in spiritual counseling to accomplish this.

Q.        I have been depressed for years.  I am now on three kinds of anti-depressants and two kinds of sleeping pills.  Can I take these medications and Dr. J’s products at the same time?  I am on a budget.  What herbal products can I take?

A.        There are no conflicts between our herbal products and antidepressants or sleeping pills.  Symptoms of depression vary among different individuals.  Our herbal products can
provide you with some degree of symptom relief. For example, Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) is good to remove excess yeasts and parasites in your body, and allow you to sleep better at night.  This may reduce your dependency on sleeping pills.

Male Vitality or Female Vitality are good to uplift your mood, give you calm energy, and improve your mental clarity and productivity.  This product is great for depression if taken on a consistent basis.

It is also important for you to adhere to a yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  Many clients reported to me that they get very depressed when they consume sugar or wheat.  Why?  When your little enemies yeasts and parasites are well-fed with their favorite food, they thrive!  Especially at night when the environment is still. This may cause insomnia.  Consequently, you feel fatigued, have low energy and low productivity the following day.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Exercise (slow walking), prayers, meditation, tapping, etc. are very helpful self-administered methods to reduce depression.   Please read my previous article or my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing for details.

As I mentioned in the previous article, there is no single cause for depression.  Therefore, there is no single effective treatment for depression.  Commonly used anti-depressants all have side effects.  Although the treating psychiatrist may switch the medication from one kind to the other, or adjust the dosage, the results from this “band-aid” approach are not necessarily desirable.

Since depression is caused by feelings of some sort of loss, or of being “stuck” or “trapped,” the treatment should focus on how to become “unstuck.”   A Harvard trained physician, Dr. James Gordon, has employed a holistic approach to treating Post-Traumatic Disorders among teenagers who have experienced various wars.  The end results to his approach were a significant reduction in depression and violence.

The following are drug-free treatment methods that have been time proven for three decades to be effective with my clients:

Yeast-Free Nutrition:

A yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals, will nourish your body and starve the little enemies within: yeasts and parasites.  Otherwise, yeasts and parasites can be very active at night when the environment is relatively still. This can keep you awake or cause sleeping disorders.    To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Herbal Detox:

When your body is loaded with toxins, it becomes fatigued due to being overworked in trying to purge all the toxins.  In order for your body to activate the innate intelligence to heal itself, one needs to remove existing toxins.  Our Herbal Detox program (consisting of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) are excellent to achieve this purpose.

Meditation:

Meditation is a practice to achieve a state of calmness and peace.  Some people also use this practice to train the mind to develop insight.  When the mind is centered, the body functions better.  Many people report that both their mental and physical health improve after a period of meditation.  In the case of depression, it’s very helpful to gain insight into the causes of depression, and invoke solutions from your higher self, or supernatural power. 

In the western world, people are always pressured for time.  There is fast food, fast photo, and so on.  Thus, I came up with “fast meditation” to suit the needs of people living in a contemporary society!  Based on my more than thirty years of experience in meditation, I have designed a 10-minute meditation technique which can quickly help you quiet your mind and give you a sense of peace and deep relaxation.  If you wish to learn about this 10-minute meditation, please read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

Visualization:

Once you have gained insight into the causes of depression (whether it’s personal or business affairs), visualize solutions.  Focus on what you want.  Rewrite the script for your life drama, and visualize that the new script is well-acted by you, the main actor (star).  Fake it until you make it!  Your subconscious mind does not know the difference.  Your mind would only manifest for you what you impress upon it.

Uplifting your mood:

Watch funny movies often and have a good laugh!  Remember the good old saying, “Laughter is the best medicine”!  Our Female Vitality or Male Vitality would also be helpful in increasing your energy, improving mental clarity, and uplifting your mood.

Exercise:

As you are aware, exercise improves blood circulation and increases energy flow.  Lack of exercise can cause sluggish blood flow.  A stagnant environment can become an incubator for yeasts to overgrow.  When blood circulation is smooth, toxins in the body can also be flushed out more easily.

Slow walking is the preferred form of exercise for people who are depressed. Depending on your energy level, you may start from 10 minutes of slow walking to 30 minutes or one hour a day.  Choose the best time of the day you can walk consistently.  If you can choose a location where there are trees and/or flowers with white clouds and blue skies, the effect will be further enhanced.  If not, walking around in a shopping mall is just fine. 

Prayers:

For those of you who believe in God, or the universe, or your higher self, PUSH – Pray Until Something Happens.  Here is an example of prayers:

“Thank you God (or the universe) for guiding me thus far!  Now I need your further assistance to make more progress.  Please give me strength, courage, resources and guidance to stay on the right track to improve my health (business, relationships, etc.).”

Remember, express your gratitude first, and then ask for more help!

Tapping:

I have learned this wonderful technique recently and have found it very effective in releasing all sorts of emotional or physical strain.  Healing would take place quickly when physical and emotional toxins are removed.  I won’t be able to include details about tapping in this article because it’s a book in itself.  If you need more information, the following is the contact information:

There are no uniform symptoms, causes and treatment modalities for ADD or ADHD.  Every case should be given individualized attention and treatment plans.  Basically, there is no cure for ADD or ADHD.  However, the symptoms can be controlled with proper intervention.  After dealing with clients with ADD or ADHD for three decades, I have found the following treatment methods to be most effective:

Yeast-Free Nutritional Therapy:

A yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine nor chemicals works wonders to reduce hyperactivity, poor mental concentration, irritability, moodiness and the other symptoms mentioned above.  The logic is very simple: a yeast-free nutritional program reduces the infection in your middle or inner ear.  When the yeast infection is under control, the swelling of tissue goes down.  This, in turn, allows sensory input to be transmitted from the external environment to your brain without obstacles or blockage.  Consequently you can be more receptive and responsive. To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow the recipes in my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Herbal Therapy:

Chinese herbal formulas are also found to be effective in the detoxifying and healing process.  The most important formulas to use are the ones that clean up infections in the middle ear and the sinus.  When the yeast infection in the middle ear is under control, you will be able to hear better, respond more appropriately, and in most cases, your ear ringing will also go away.

Sinus congestion not only blocks sensory input, but also prevents the brain from getting a sufficient supply of oxygen.  This, of course, is a double whammy!  When the sinus infections are cleared, your mental clarity will also be restored.  Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea are excellent combination in clearing the yeast infections in the mid or inner ear or sinuses.

Not every individual with ADD experiences hyperactivity.  You might experience low energy and depression.  Therefore, additional herbal formulas for uplifting energy and mood are recommended.  Male Vitality or Female Vitality is designed to uplift your mood, increase energy, and improve mental concentration.

Psychological Counseling:

As mentioned earlier, all individuals with Attention Deficit Disorder tend to experience emotional issues that have not been worked through.  Either children or adults, it is important for them to identify the core problems contributing to the disorder.  Seeking help from experienced therapists dealing with ADD or ADHD is an essential step.

If impulsiveness is present, you will need to be in a behavior modification program either on an individual basis or in a group situation.  The purpose of these programs is to help you learn to set limits on your behavior and learn a new way to gratify your needs or delay your gratification.  You also need to learn how to organize a structured routine that is easy to follow so that your frustration will be reduced to a minimum.

People with ADD are often highly intelligent.  If you are one of them, don’t give up!  You can make a great contribution to society if you learn how to control ADD or ADHD and make the best use of your intelligence!
