Cleansing crisis is also known as a healing crisis.  This occurrence is common when one takes our Herbal Detox program- Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea.  The occurrence is also common for those who simply start a yeast-free nutritional regimen containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine nor chemicals. 

The reaction occurs when your body tries to eliminate toxins. The more toxic your body systems are, the more severe the detoxification, or healing crisis.

I normally alert my clients of the following:  Whatever symptoms you are experiencing now could be worse.  Additional symptoms you don’t experience currently may also appear.

Some people who are not familiar with the concept of cleansing crisis may jump to the conclusion that they are allergic to Dr. J’s herbs or holistic treatment programs and rush to their MD’s for more prescriptions of antibiotics or cortisone.  The fact is these are signs that the detox program is working effectively to remove the toxins from your body, and thereby allows your body’s innate intelligence to heal you.

Cleansing reactions can occur immediately, or within several days, or even several weeks after you start our Herbal Detox, Hormonal Regeneration, Weight Management, and/or yeast-free nutritional programs.  Going through cleansing crises is like peeling an onion layer by layer.  Cleansing crises are like waves – they come and go. Sometimes “tidal waves” can occur, and you might feel like you were run over by a truck!  Committed clients have told me that they “feel great about feeling miserable”!  Some even take a few days off from work and rest, so that it’s easier for them to go through each cleansing crisis.

Sometimes discomfort during the healing crisis is of greater intensity than when you were developing and enduring the chronic disease. This is why there may be a brief flare-up in your symptoms. Often the crisis will come after you are feeling your best. I called it the “honey moon period”.  After the honey moon period, cleansing crises occur because your body dumps toxins into the blood stream for elimination. When the stored wastes are in a free-flowing state, a variety of symptoms may flare up.

The healing crisis will usually bring about past conditions.  People often forget the diseases or injuries they have sustained in the past, but are usually reminded of during the crisis.

Common Symptoms of Cleansing Crisis:

 There are a wide variety of reactions that may manifest during a healing crisis.

The most common cleansing symptoms include:

  •  Cold or flu-like symptoms
  • Headaches
  • Sinus congestion
  • Extreme fatigue or the opposite: restlessness
  • Arthritis-like pains in the joints
  • Aches and pains in the muscles (fibromyalgia)
  • constipation or Diarrhea
  • Skin rashes including boils and hives
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Suppressed memories arise
  • Low grade fever
  • Frequent urination
  • Strong emotions: anger, resentment, sadness, fear, guilt, regrets, etc.

How does one manage a cleansing crisis?

Basically there are two ways:  sharp, short pain, or dull, long pain.  It does not matter which way you chose, the same amount of toxins need to be removed.

You can choose to tough it out and enjoy a clean slate sooner; or you can reduce the dosage of our herbal formulas, and go through a longer journey to cleanse.

Most of my clients drink a substantial amount of Cleansing-Balance Tea to flush out toxins in the liver and kidneys during the cleansing crisis.  One tea bag of Cleansing-Balance Tea makes one pot: 6 cups (8 oz. each cup). Some of my clients drink two pots a day during the cleansing crisis.  Braver clients with situations such as drug addiction or Irritated Bowel Syndrome (IBS) increase the dosage of our herbal formulas to hasten the cleansing effects.  If you need to work and/or perform a certain amount of daily chores, then just reduce the dosage of our herbal formulas and go through a milder, but longer cleansing period.

You also can choose to stop the cleansing crisis and go back to the same unhealthy lifestyle.  However, I have news for you:  it’s not uncommon that these kinds of clients come back to me after they have developed life-threatening diseases such as cancer, tumors, heart disease, etc.  By that time, they would need to spend more resources, time and effort to go through the cleansing crisis, all the while living under the shadow of death.

The choice is yours.  With each choice you make, you need to prepare for the consequences associated with it.  As a helping professional, my job is to simply help my clients live or die more comfortably.

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.

The conventional treatment for hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) is using synthroid at various dosages to match with your body’s production of triiodothyronine (T-3) and thyroxine (T-4).  Synthroid is a synthetic hormone identical to the natural hormones in your body.  Because the production of T3 and T4 fluctuates based on your body’s need to metabolize sugar and fats you consume, the dosage of synthroid needs to be adjusted to avoid overdose of the drug.  Frequent visits to your doctor’s office are essential for blood tests to determine the T3 and T4 levels. 

Many of my clients have decided to take their health in their hands by improving their life styles, and go for natural remedies.

The following are common natural remedies for hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid):

Yeast –Free Nutritional Program:

As mentioned in previous articles, excessive intake of sugar and fats make the thyroid gland overworked and exhausted.  Therefore, it’s essential to feed your body with a yeast-free nutritional program that contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  These items are favorite foods for yeasts and parasites.  When you are on the yeast-free nutritional program, you feed your body – but starve the little enemies within.  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:

Yeasts and parasites develop colonies at the weak parts of your body.  Herbal therapy is essential to getting rid of the excessive yeasts and parasites so your body’s innate intelligence will have a clean slate to heal.  Since yeasts and parasites are like Siamese twins (they go hand in hand) a potent herbal formula is needed to remove both yeasts and parasites simultaneouslyYeast-Para Control is designed for this purpose. 

Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to cleanse your liver and kidneys, and remove the “debris” created by Yeast-Para Control.  Therefore, the combination of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea works wonders for detoxification!

Hormonal Regeneration:

Female Vitality or Male Vitality is designed to balance your hormones, increase cool, calm energy, improve your mental concentration, metabolism, and productivity, reactivate your libido, and uplift your mood.  For those who want to reduce the dosage of synthroid or not taking synthroid at all, Female Vitality or Male Vitality is a good supplement or replacement.

Stress:

Stress is part of daily life.  Stress can be a motivating force for you move forward.  One just needs to learn stress management techniques to make stress work for you instead of against you. 

Daily meditation, stress releasing technique, prayers, affirmations and meditative walks are all helpful self-administered methods to manage stress properly.  For details regarding all these stress management techniques, please read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

Adequate Iodine Intake:

The trace mineral iodine is essential for the production of thyroid hormones.  Many Americans have iodine deficiency.  Sea vegetables such as kelp is an excellent source of iodine.  One table spoon of kelp yields approximately 12 mg of iodine while the daily recommended dosage is only 150 mcg (1mg =1,000 mcg).  Eating sea vegetables regularly will help maintain a strong thyroid function.  There is a recipe for Seaweed Tofu Soup in my yeast free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

The above natural remedies have proven very effective for the treatment of hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid).  Depending on the T3 and T4 levels in your blood tests, you may want to wean yourself off of synthetic hormones by incorporating these natural remedies.

Q.        Do Dr. J’s Detox products contain Kelp? I was advised that including Kelp in my supplements would be helpful for me but through research I heard that too much could cause issues. Could you please let me know when you have a minute? Thank you!

A.         Our Herbal Detox program consists of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea.  Yeast-Para Control does contain a small amount of kelp that is an excellent source of natural iodine.  Given the fact that most Americans are iodine deficient, the amount of Atlantic kelp I put in the formula is bridging the gap. 

All of our herbal formulas contain no sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, nor chemicals.  The capsules of Yeast-Para Control are vegetarian caps.  Our herbal products are formulated in a synergistic manner in which each ingredient enhances each other’s main effect, and take away the possible side effects.  Therefore, one does not have to be concerned about overdosing on the amount of beneficial iodine in our Herbal Detox program.  

For those who are not familiar with our popular Herbal Detox program, here is the recap:  As mentioned previously, our cost-effective Herbal Detox program consists of Yeast-Para Control  and Cleansing-Balance TeaYeast-Para Control is designed to remove excess yeasts and parasites in the body.  All human beings and their pets have yeasts and parasites in the body to a greater and lesser degree.  When your immune system is strong, your body can co-exist harmoniously with your little enemies.  When your immune system is weak, your body can be controlled by these microbial orgasms. 

Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to cleanse your liver and kidneys and also flush the debris that Yeast-Para Control scrubs loose.  The function of Yeast-Para Control is like scrubbing the toilet, and that of Cleansing-Balance Tea is like flushing the toilet.  These two formulas work together to cleanse toxins in your body and allow the innate intelligence of your body to rebuild your immunity.  Even if you are symptom free, I would recommend that you stay on our Herbal Detox program for at least three months in a row.  If you already have some health issues, I would advise you to stay on the Herbal Detox program until you are symptom free, and then stay on a maintenance dosage. 

How long would it take for you to get a clean slate?  Generally speaking, for one year of illness, it takes at least one month of vigorous cleansing provided that you follow the detox protocol diligently.
