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!

If so, I have an easy solution for you!  Just visit my website or contact my office and order some of the “Seven Herbal Wonders” for you and/or your loved ones!  What would be a better gift than vibrant health?!  We drop ship using 3-5 days priority mail in the U. S.  In case you are not familiar with our “Seven Herbal Wonders,” here they are:

Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea):

Yeast-Para Control is designed to remove yeasts and parasites from the human (or animal) body simultaneously.  The products available in the market today focus on the elimination of only yeasts or parasites.  Our products control the overgrowth of both yeasts and parasites, since these two unwanted tenants go hand in hand like Siamese’s Twins.

I have been treating yeast and parasitic infections for more than three decades, and our Herbal Detox program has been regarded as the most cost-effective in the market.  Symptoms from head to toe such as allergies, headaches, mind fog, fatigue, depression, sore throats, sinus congestions, digestive problems, constipation, skin rash, and arthritis-like aches and pains, etc. can be reduced or eliminated within weeks or days after taking our Yeast-Para Control formula.

Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to cleanse the five systems in your body including respiratory, digestive, circulatory, immune, and elimination systems with emphasis on liver and kidneys.  As mentioned earlier, the function of Yeast-Para Control is like “scrubbing the toilet” (loosening up toxins), while that of Cleansing-Balance Tea is like “flushing the toilet” (flushing out the toxins and debris that have been loosened up by Yeast-Para Control).  Therefore, the combination of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea produces the best detoxification results.

Hormonal Regeneration (Female Vitality or Male Vitality):

Female Vitality is designed to balance the female hormonal system.  The following are the most common self-reported benefits by our clients:

  • Eliminate or reduce PMS (Pre-Menstrual Syndrome)
  • Regulate period
  • Eliminate or reduce mood swings
  • Improve skin complexions
  • Strengthen nails and hair
  • Increase energy, mental clarity and productivity
  • Eliminate menopausal symptoms
  • Enjoy being better sexual partners!

Male Vitality is designed to balance the male hormonal system.  Many of our clients report that our Male Vitality works better than Viagra because they experience overall improvement of total functioning.  The results are also long-lasting.  The following are common benefits reported by our clients:

  • Improve energy, mental clarity and productivity
  • Improve mental concentration
  • Uplift the mood
  • Increase libido
  • Improve sexual potency
  • Improve over-all well being

Herbal Cocktail is a high-protein herbal drink with high-quality digestive enzymes.   Whether you need to lose weight or gain weight, Herbal Cocktail provides the balance your body needs. The following are common benefits reported by our clients:

  • Inhibit yeast overgrowth
  • Reduce or eliminate symptoms of candidiasis

Many of our clients also report the following side benefits:

  • Lower high blood pressure
  • Balance high blood sugar

In order to correct weight problems, you need to learn to nourish your body and mind on a regular basis.  Staying trim is a lifelong project.  No crash diets, injections, medications, or surgeries can achieve this purpose.  The following natural remedies have been time-tested by many of my clients as the most cost-effective for healthy and safe weight loss:

Yeast-Free Nutritional Program:

The first step is to wean yourself from foods containing sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and chemicals.  Stop ingesting poisonous or allergy-inducing foods into your body.  Give your thyroid a chance to rest and regenerate.  Allow your body to avoid the assault of wrong foods, and instead be nourished by nutrients from the right kind of foods.  If you would like to learn more about what to eat and what to avoid, follow the recipes in my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Chinese Herbal Therapy:

For those of you who have a long history of being overweight, you need to consider herbal formulas specifically designed for weight control as an additional measure.  A yeast-free nutritional program gives your body a new start; while an herbal program removes the existing toxins in your body and revitalizes your sluggish metabolism.  A well-formulated herbal program for weight loss should have the following three functions:

1.  Control Your Appetite:

Most Americans overeat.  When I travelled in Europe, I noticed that my American friends were often surprised by the relatively smaller portions of food they received in European restaurants.  A traditional Chinese belief is that you should not eat more than a handful of food for each meal.  For those of you who love to eat, you probably wish you had a larger hand now (smile)!  Even though some of you are well aware of what you should and shouldn’t eat, when an abundance of no-no food is available, your will power often gives in.  Luckily, a well-put-together herbal formula can curb your appetite naturally without much effort on your part!

Our Herbal Cocktail was specifically designed for this purpose.  The high protein herbal drink contains multigrains and powerful digestive enzymes.  This product curbs your appetitte, stops sugar craving, and nourishes your body.  A scoup of this powder in a cup of Cleansing-Balance Tea or made into an herbal smoothie can carry you over for about two hours if you are too busy to have a regular meal.  It has been considered a life-saver by my busy clients.

For those peope who fast periodically, they found that the combination of our Cleansing-Balance Tea and Herbal Cocktail is very nourishing during the fast.

2.  Block Fat from Forming Fatty Tissues.

As mentioned previously, the Standard American Diet (SAD) usually contains 40 to 60% fat in a given meal (A cheeseburger is a good example.)  If you wish to reduce weight, you need to learn to eat sensibly and avoid foods containing a high amount of fat.  However, as a human being, sometimes you deviate knowingly or unknowingly.  A good herbal formula for weight control will also eliminate a good portion of the fat you put in your body.  In other words, before the newly ingested fats have a chance to be stored in your body, these herbal formulas will be able to expel them provided that you are not overloading your body with fatty foods all the time.

Our Fitness Regular is designed as a fat blocker.  Over the past 15 years, our clients have also reported side benefits such as the balancing of their blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol.

3.  Burn the Existing Fat in Your Body and Turn It Into Energy:

In addition to preventing new fats from being stored in your body, the third function of an effective herbal weight control formula is to burn the existing fat in your system and turn it into useful energy.  As a result, you will feel energetic, mentally clear and productive.

As described in previous articles, you might go through a period of cleansing crisis if you have many toxins accumulated in your system.  Before your body can function at its optimal level, it has to clean house!  Drink a lot of water or our caffeine-free Cleansing-Balance Tea to flush the debris.  In this way, the cleansing and purging processes can be facilitated.  Our Fitness Plus is desgned as a fat burner. It contains strong Chinese herbal ingredients to burn the fat that has been stored in your body.  I have also included a good amount of Acai berries to facilitate cleansing.


All of our products contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no corn, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, nor chemicals.  Only the finest natural ingredients are used in our formulation.  The end result:  steady and safe weight loss of two to three pounds per week.  The good news is that as long as you follow the guidelines for a healthy lifestyle, you won’t experience weight yo-yo’s that go hand in hand with fad diets.

In the next article, I will discuss how you can manage your stress effectively, how to restore your spiritual balance, and how to exrcise effortlessly without going to the gym.

Stay tuned!

Excess weight is a very costly health problem which can be associated with life threatening conditions such as atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, cancer, respiratory disorders, gallbladder disease and metabolic dysfunction.  Being overweight can negatively affect health, appearance, self-esteem, and even earning potential.  Some researchers estimate that each pound of extra fat can cost an executive $1,000 a year in income.

 

Causes of Overweight Conditions:

Major causes of being overweight include poor eating habits, yeast disorders, thyroid dysfunction, psychological stress and spiritual imbalance.

 

Poor Eating Habits:

As mentioned previously, an average American eats 120 pounds of sugar per year.  From birth to age 70, on the average, an American eats eight cows, nine pigs and 15,000 eggs.  A well-balanced diet should contain less than 20% fat, less than 20% protein and more than 40% complex carbohydrates.  Excess intake of fat, protein and sugar can turn into overstorage of fat.  Americans also tend to overeat or not to eat at regular hours.  Some skip breakfasts and others have big meals right before bedtime.  Irregular hours and portions can confuse your biological clock and jeopardize your metabolic function.

 

Yeast Disorders:

As described in previous articles, yeast disorders are misdiagnosed and improperly treated by most medical professionals.  In addition to all the symptoms from head to toe such as foggy mind, allergies, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), chronic fatigue, low enegy, immune deficiency, arthritis-like aches and pains, skin rash, vaginal yeast infections, male yeast infections, depression, anxiety, loss of sexual interest, etc, a persistent overweight condition can be an indication that your metabolic function is being jeopardized by stubborn yeast disorders.

Yeast can creep in to any part of your body, especially sites which are weak to begin with.  For instance, if your thyroid gland is weak, then opportunistic yeasts can particularly affect your metabolic function and cause further deterioration.  If yeast disorders are not corrected, the weight problem will persist.  Some clients complained to me that they gained weight even if they just drank water!  Even though they may not have been as innocent as they portrayed themselves to be, there is some degree of reality in their complaint.  The fact is that it is very difficult for them to lose weight, no matter how hard they try.

 

Hypothyroidism:

Severe hypothyroidism manifests symptoms such as obesity, constipation, dry skin, cold intolerance, hair loss, puffy face and mental retardation.  Contributing factors include congenital and environmental causes.  The latter includes poor eating habits.  Constant excessive consumption of sugar causes overwork and exhaustion of the thyroid gland.  On top of it all, untreated yeast disorders will further weaken thyroid function.

 

Psychological Stress:

Some people manage to be in constant crises.  For those who are used to a dysfunctional behavioral pattern, they feel anxious or uneasy if their lives are peaceful.  Somehow they have to create a situation where there will be chaos, and thus their frantic behavior can be justified.

 

People who are not able to manage stress effectively will usually indulge themselves in emotional eating.  Food is a symbol of love and comfort across cultures, especially for those who associate food with parental approval and attention.

 

Spiritual Imbalance:

Many overweight people suffer from spiritual imbalance because they carry a great deal of  “unfinished business” on their shoulders.  In most cases, they crave approval from their parents.   Some are angry and hurt because they were abused sexually, mentally or physically during their childhood.  The predominant emotions are anger, resentment, grief and regret.  Some even feel sorry for themselves and feel that their negative feelings are well justified.  Usually they are unclear about the purpose of their existences.  They tend to “live to eat,” instead of “eat to live.”

In the next article I will discuss natural remedies for safe and healthy weight loss.  Stay tuned.

According to Wikipedia, the term underweight refers to a human who is considered to be under a healthy weight level. “Underweight” means weighing less than what is expected to be a healthy person. 

Over 66% of people in the U.S. are overweight.  Many people consider being underweight as a “lucky” situation. The fact of the matter is that an underweight condition could be a severe health issue.

Some examples of health issues associated with an underweight condition include: anemia, chronic fatigue, poor blood circulation, poor digestion and absorption, weak immunity, amenorrhea (absence of menstruation), infertility, complications during pregnancy, osteoporosis, etc.

In developed countries, the most common cause of being underweight is malnutrition, secondary to diseases such as cancer, hyperthyroidism, and yeast and parasitic infections.

After having dealt with underweight clients, both male and female, regardless of ethnicity, I have found the following holistic treatment to be very effective:

 

1.    Remove excessive yeast and parasites

I usually suggest a mega-dose of our Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) to remove the “unwanted tenants” — yeasts and parasites quickly.   It’s not unusual that my underweight clients take Cleansing-Balance Tea four capsules around the clock during the waking hours, and drink two pots of Cleansing-Balance Tea a day.  The end result?  They see a lot of yeast debris, parasite eggs (like seeds), and bodies of mature worms in the toilet, and they experience marked improvement in their health conditions.

2.    Concentrated Herbal Nutrition: Herbal Smoothie

The herbal smoothie I described in previous articles is great for underweight people to gain muscle weight (healthy weight).  My underweight clients usually have up to three servings a day.  The Herbal smoothie recipe consists of purified water, sugar-free soy milk/rice milk/almond milk/coconut milk, Herbal Cocktail, Yeast-Para Control, Female Vitality, or Male Vitality.

 

3.    Yeast-Free Nutrition

A yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no yeast, no wheat, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals starves yeasts and parasites and nourishes your body.  The more my underweight clients stick to this nutritional program, the faster they gain healthy weight.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

 

4.    Regular Exercise

Exercise improves healthy appetite, blood circulation, and oxygenation of body cells.  All of this helps underweight individuals gain muscle weight (healthy weight).  If the individual is too weak to engage in vigorous exercise, start with a few minutes of slow walking, and gradually increase to a higher capacity when body strength and stamina increase.

5.    Stress Management

People who are underweight tend to worry more than ordinary people do.  Stress management techniques such as meditation, prayers, affirmations, deep emotional releasing, writing letters to finish “unfinished business”, etc. have proven to be very effective in reducing anxiety and increasing relaxation.  For the details, read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

“I was a diabetic for more than 10 years.  I was insulin dependent and overweight and had no energy.  Dr. J’s Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea), Regeneration (Male Vitality) and Weight Control (Herbal Cocktail, Fitness Regular, and Fitness Plus) Programs, had created a new life for me.  In two months, I was able to reduce my insulin to two-third of my previous dosage.  I also lost 15 pounds and dropped my cholesterol by 51 points. I now have much more energy. 

 

My goal is totally off medication for diabetes!  I would rather be on Dr. J’s herbs for life than on the oral or injectable medication.  I know I have to make a total commitment to a lifestyle change including change of dietary habits, and the way I deal with stress.  Actually I have found that Dr. J’s yeast-free nutritional program and holistic approach to life is easy to follow once I learned the basics.  I highly recommend the program!”

I saw Dr. J briefly for consultation 10 years ago, and I quickly “ran away” because I thought her holistic treatment was too radical.  Ten years later, I came back to see her because I was overweight and I had a lump in my breast.  After about six weeks of sticking to her Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and  Cleansing-Balance Tea) and Weight Management (Herbal Cocktail, Fitness Regular, and Fitness Plus), I lost 11 pounds and three inches around my waistline.  Most of all, when I went to my physician for a scheduled surgery to remove the cyst, it miraculously disappeared!  No surgery was needed!

According to the Natural Institute of Health (NIH), more than 65 percent of American adults are overweight (25 pounds or over).  Carrying extra weight increases the risks of developing serious health issues such as heart disease, stroke, cancers, and diabetes.

The increase of Type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes is in correlation with the rise in obesity. The American Diabetes Association estimates about 21 million people have diabetes, with another 54 million people diagnosed with pre-diabetes.  Pre-diabetes is a condition where fasting blood glucose levels are elevated, but not yet to the level of Type 2 diabetes.

What is Type 2 Diabetes?

Type 2 (adult-onset) diabetes is associated with insulin resistance. Insulin is an important hormone released by the pancreas to burn blood sugar (glucose) and turn it into energy for body cells.  Fat cells are less sensitive to insulin than muscle cells.  If a person has more fat cells than muscle cells, then the insulin becomes less effective overall, and glucose remains circulating in the blood instead of being used as fuel for body cells.

Why is a Diabetic Prone to Yeast and Parasitic Infections?

When blood sugar is unused and circulating in the blood stream, it feeds yeasts (and parasites) in your body.  When your little enemies are well fed, they have rock ‘n roll party, and then use your body as a toilet (deposits toxins)!  Most people with diabetes feel fatigued and sluggish.  If left untreated, severe symptoms may develop, such as blurred vision, poor circulation, gangrene, neuropathy, and amputation of the limbs.

How can you lose the weight and cut the risks of Type 2 diabetes?  Stay tuned.  You will find answers in the next post.

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!

Are you suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)?  Review the following checklist to find out:

  • Are you having trouble concentrating?
  • Are you forgetful?
  • Are you impulsive?
  • Are you hyperactive?
  • Do you talk very fast?
  • Is your speech slow or slurred?
  • Are you a smart thinker and yet a slow learner?
  • Are you prone to motion-related phobias (such as fears of moving elevators, escalators, cars, planes, trains, or crowds)?
  • Are you often depressed, anxious and irritable?

If you’ve checked off more than three items, then chances are you are among the five million Americans who suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or ADHD!  Despite the growing attention this disorder has received in the past few decades, the diagnostic and treatment process remains elusive, complex, and inclusive!

Possible Causes of ADD or ADHD:

ADD or ADHD can affect children, adolescents, and adults.  Each case can differ widely in terms of symptoms, causes, therapeutic process and prognosis.  After dealing with numerous children and adults with ADD or ADHD, I have found the following common factors:

Physical Factors:

The most common physical factor I have found, which may be shocking to many, is yeast infection involving the inner or middle ears.  Dr. Harold Levinson in his book, Total Concentration (1990) states that more than 80% of patients with ADD he has seen suffered from inner-ear infections.  He explains in great detail how the inner-ear system or the cerebellar-vestibular system (CVS) controls the flow of sensory information entering the brain.  When this system is impaired by infections of the inner ear, your vision, hearing, balance, senses of direction, motion, altitude, depth, and smell, and all motor information leaving the brain can be scrambled.  Consequently, this auditory drift results in problems in balance and coordination, concentration, memory, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.  In some cases, speech timing is off, which can result in rapid speech or slow, slurred speech.  A malfunctioning inner ear has difficulty processing motor input; this in turn makes the affected individual prone to motion-related phobias such as fear of moving elevators, escalators, cars, planes, trains, buses and crowds.

What Dr. Levinson failed to address was what this inner-ear infection is all about and what causes it.  In my experience, this inner-ear infection is yeast infection that can be contracted before or after birth.  If a pregnant woman has yeast infections, she can give the infections to her baby through the blood stream and/or birth canal.  The baby can be born with yeast infections manifesting symptoms such as eye or ear infections, respiratory tract congestion and colic.

Psychological Factors:

Most children and adults with ADD or ADHD suffer from psychological distress.  The following is a good example:        

Mary, a 19-year-old Caucasian college student was brought to my office because of her impulsive eating, which resulted in overweight problems, poor mental concentration, resistant behavior, constant chattering, rapid speech, poor academic performance and low self-esteem.  Mary exhibited the above behavior while she was in the elementary school.  She was doing fairly well while she was placed in a private high school with a structured routine.  After entering college, she was overwhelmed by the “complicated life of a sophomore” and her previous pattern of ADD behavior began to worsen.

Dietary Factors:

The Standard American Diet (SAD) has created many SAD stories.  Over-consumption of food containing sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and chemicals (including food preservatives and coloring, and heavy metals) has caused every American yeast overgrowth at one time or the other, to a greater or lesser degree.  Symptoms of yeast disorder that contribute to ADD include headaches, poor mental concentration (foggy mind), middle or inner ear infections, strep throat, nasal congestion, mood swings, depression and phobias.

Environmental Factors:

Many people with ADD live in an environment that contributes to or worsens their disorders.  Children with ADD or ADHD often have parents who also suffer from ADD.  Some parents recognize their disorders; however, most don’t.  Many schoolteachers also have ADD, but most don’t recognize or don’t want to admit to the affliction.  Stress due to parents’ divorce, illness, financial hardship, etc., also can complicate a child’s ADD or ADHD.

If ADD or ADHD is untreated during childhood, the symptoms will continue into adolescence and adulthood.  If the environment is non-understanding and non-supportive, the difficulty in dealing with everyday demands will be exacerbated.

In the next article, I will discuss the treatment of ADD or ADHD.  Stay tuned!
