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.

For consultation on yeast-free nutrition, herbal detox, hormonal imbalance, weight control, stress management, depression, and spiritual counseling, please call us at (800) 715-3053 or send an e-mail to drj@drjsbest.com.  Consultation sessions over Skype or the telephone are also available.  For more information, visit our website:  www.drjsbest.com.

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:
