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.

vegetarianhotpot1Article taken from http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/news/20130131/vegetarian-heart-disease

Jan. 31, 2013 — The risk of hospitalization or death from heart disease is almost a third lower in vegetarians than in people who eat meat and fish, according to a new study.

Researchers from the University of Oxford in England say the health benefits of not eating meat likely stem from having lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

But heart experts caution that following a vegetarian diet is unlikely to be enough to prevent heart disease.

Major Killer

Heart disease is the largest cause of death in developed countries.

The study looked at 44,561 men and women living in England and Scotland who were enrolled during the 1990s in a separate Oxford study looking at links betweencancer and nutrition.

Researchers used this database because of the unusually high number of vegetarians enlisted: 34% of the people.

All the people were asked about their health and lifestyles when they joined. This included questions about diet and exercise, as well as other factors affecting health such as smoking and drinking alcohol. Almost 20,000 participants also had their blood pressures recorded and gave blood samples for cholesterol testing.

The volunteers were tracked until 2009. During that time, researchers recorded 1,066 people with heart disease and 169 deaths from heart disease.

The researchers found that vegetarians had a 32% lower risk of developing heart disease than those who ate fish and meat. They did not differentiate between red and white meat, nor did they track how much meat was eaten.

Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

“We didn’t look at the specific components of the vegetarian diet that might contribute to the lower risk of heart disease in this study, but because the vegetarians have lower blood cholesterol, it is probably because they have a lower intake of saturated fat and a higher intake of polyunsaturated fat,” says Francesca Crowe, who led the study.

Crowe says the vegetarians also ate more fruits, vegetables, and fiber, which might have contributed to their lower risk of heart disease.

The researchers say lower blood pressure among the vegetarians is likely to be an important factor.

Additionally, vegetarians typically had a lower body mass index (BMI) and fewer cases of diabetes (although these were not found to significantly affect the results). If the results are adjusted to exclude the effects of BMI, vegetarians are 28% less likely to develop heart disease, the researchers say.

The study appears in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

hurricane-sandy-oct-25As you all know, hurricane Sandy has brought much environmental destruction.   However, what you may not know is that Sandy also has caused many people to suffer from yeast and parasitic infections.

If you have read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, you would discover that I was born during the “Typhoon” (hurricane) season, and that I was born with the “yeast curse.”

I have received several calls from clients living in the New York area after super storm Sandy.  They complained about fatigue, mind fog, digestive problems, allergies, depression, headaches, etc.  Most of them can trace back to the origin of these health issues:  The drinking water at home or the restaurants was contaminated with parasite giardia.  Yeasts were overgrown inside and outside their bodies.

They were so happy to get on our Herbal Detox program.

If you have any questions, please call me at my direct line (818) 472-2213.  We also offer 10% discount on our herbal products for all of you who were affected by the aftermath of Sandy.

I was overweight all my adult life.  I went through the typical weight yo-yo’s.  My self-esteem and productivity suffered as result of it.    Dr. J’s comprehensive weight management program taught me the importance of sticking to an anti-yeast nutritional program for life.  

Following Dr. J’s Eight Commandments of no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, and no chemicals in the yeast-free cookbook (Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking) was challenging at first, but now it’s simple and saving me a chunk of money on grocery.

Dr. J’s Herbal Detox, Hormonal Regeneration, and Weight Management

herbs also work like magic.  Tons of strange creatures (yeasts, parasites, and eggs of parasites) showed up in my toilet!  It was gross, but I was happy that they were outside of my body!

Dr. J also helped me realize that being overweight is a mechanism of protection.  Once I recognized where my insecurity was coming from, I was able to work on increasing my strength.   Weight control is actually about life control.  Thanks Dr. J for a transforming program!

Q.         Why are some people more prone to candidiasis (yeast infections) than others?

A.         This is a good question!  Sometimes you feel “it’s not fair” that others are eating sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, and other yeast-favorite food, and yet they don’t have candidiasis.  On the contrary, you have to watch everything you eat, and yet, you still suffer from the symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections.

The answer is actually very simple.  The stress level everybody perceived in life determines your susceptibility to yeast and parasitic infections.  As I detailed in my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, “so far as physical health is concerned, yeast and parasitic infections are the roots of all evil; and psychological stress is the core of these roots!”  Stress suppresses your immunity.  When your immunity is compromised, all kinds of microbial organisms such as yeasts, parasites, bacteria, and viruses can act up and create symptoms from head to toe.

An anti-yeast nutritional program is an important way to prevent new assault on your body.  However, the existing little enemies in your body require a vigorous holistic approach to make them surrender.  In addition to dietary change, stress management should be your top priority.

Meditation, prayers, affirmations, chanting, etc. all can help reduce your stress.  Go to my website: www.drjsbest.com to claim a FREE gift I have for you: 10-minute meditation.  Meditate daily, even several times a day, and you will experience more peace, harmony, health, and happiness.  If you need professional help, just call me at 818-472-2213 or 800-715-3053 for a consultation appointment.

If you are on budget, you can start with reading my books, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, and
.  I would also recommend our Herbal Detox program.  For less than $3 a day, you will be able to build up your immunity immediately and consistently.

Q.        Are laboratory tests accurate in detecting the presence of yeasts and parasites?

A.        Modern technology is improving in terms of detecting the presence of yeasts and parasites.  However, most laboratory tests and x-rays cannot do the job accurately.   Even though the recent development of DNA testing is far superior to all previous tests, the scope is limited.  Why?  Yeasts and parasites have more than 250,000 species.  Candida albicans alone has a family of more than 40 strains of harmful yeasts.  No test up to date can detect them all!

Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience, the best assessment of yeast and parasitic infections is the observation of the eyes, skin, tongue and knowledge of a detailed health history.   Most importantly, when my clients are on our Herbal Detox program, within days they will see the “evidence” in the toilet such as:

Debris of Yeasts

Cloudy or mucousy materials in the urine or stool.  Some of my clients described them as “the Milky Way” or “clouds under the water.”

Eggs of Parasites:

They look like sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, undigested brown rice, or broken corn.  You can see them in your stool or menstrual blood clots.

Mature Worms:

They come in various sizes, shapes and colors.  Pinworms appear to be fibers sticking out of your stool.  Hook worms look like spaghetti or string cheese.  Flat worms look like broken tree leaves dancing in the toilet when you flush it.

In other words, your toilet is your best laboratory!

In the previous two articles, I pointed out that yeast and parasitic infections are a global epidemic.  I also highlighted the major symptoms and causes.  To get more detailed information, you can review my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

In this article, I will address natural, drug-free treatment for yeast and parasitic infections based on my more than 30 years of clinical experience working with people from all walks of life:

1)    Anti-Yeast Nutrition:

For starters, adopt an Anti-Yeast Nutritional program for life.  This nutritional program contains 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.”  Examples of great recipes for this program can be found in my cookbook: Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.  This program is designed to starve the yeasts and parasites, nourish your body with good nutrients, and prevent new toxins from being created and built up in your body.

2)    Herbal Therapy to Remove Excess Yeasts And Parasites:

When you abuse or misuse your body for a long time, toxins would build up and may cause a multitude of health issues as described in the previous article.  One of the quickest ways to remove these toxins is using our Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) that I formulated specifically for my clients.  Yeast-Para Control scrubs the toilet, and Cleansing-Balance Tea is like flushing the toilet.  The two formulas combined works wonders in removing yeasts and parasites simultaneously from your body, improving your immunity.  When your immunity is strong, you would be able to co-exist with your little enemies harmoniously.

3)    Manage Your Stress Effectively:

Stress is a part of life. If managed effectively, stress can propel you to a higher level of success or awakening.   Otherwise, stress can deplete your immunity and allow yeasts and parasites to overgrow.  Many ways lead to Rome.  Whatever works to release stress for you should be continued.  For myself and many of my clients, the combination of prayers (or chanting), affirmations, Vitamin “N” (N for nature), slow walking and 10-minute meditation works well to relieve stress.  You can go to my website: www.drjsbest.com to download the 10-meditation guide for FREE!  This is an invaluable gift that would benefit you for life if you use it!

4)    Exercise to Prevent Yeast and Parasitic Infections:

As stated in the previous article, yeasts and parasites love a still environment.  That’s why you might have symptoms such as sleep disorders, sinus congestion, snoring, or sleep apnea at night when you are relatively immobile.  People in the wheel chairs also have a tendency to develop urinary tract infections (UTI) caused by the overgrowth of yeasts.  If you are too tired to exercise, just start with a few minutes of slow walking or in-place jogging and gradually build up.  If you are in the wheel chair, you can also do “chair dancing” to improve your blood circulation and prevent the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites.

5)    Change Environments:

As explained before, yeasts and parasites are everywhere.   A damp environment such as woodlands and seaside dwellings, or a dusty environment such as construction sites all provide an incubator for yeasts and parasites to overgrow.  If you are exposed to yeasty or dusty environments, you are prone to having flare ups of yeast and parasitic infections.  Move to an environment which may be more suitable to improving your health.  If that is not possible, just take my Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) routinely to remove excess yeasts and parasites.

6)    Overuse of Antibiotics or Potent Drugs:

As described in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, antibiotics or potent drugs may provide you with temporary relief.   However, the “good guys” such as bacteria floras in the intestines take a long time to re-establish, while the “bad guys” such as harmful yeasts take no time to comeback since they are air-borne and everywhere!  Thus, yeast overgrowth quickly occurs.  Worst of all, yeasts and parasites are like Siamese Twins.  They come hand in hand.  They both can create symptoms for you from head to toe.  My suggestion is avoiding antibiotics or potent drugs whenever possible.  Call me or consult with your holistic health care provider for alternatives before you take any antibiotics or potent drugs.

7)    Prevent Traveler’s Disease:

If you travel to an unfamiliar environment, I would suggest that you only drink a familiar brand of bottled water and eat food prepared by clean, prestigious hotels.  Avoid raw vegetables (salads).  Wash the fruits thoroughly and peel the skin before eating them.  Although there is no guarantee, take every precaution possible to prevent yeast and parasitic infections.

The symptoms and causes of yeast and parasitic infections may vary with each individual. For specific consultation on the phone or Skype, please call (800) 715-3053 , or  (818) 472-2213 , or send an e-mail to drj@drjsbest.com.  Skype name: academyofvibranthealth.  For more information, visit our website: www.drjsbest.com.
