Q.        I just went through menopause.  My husband and I used to enjoy sex.  Lately I feel pain during the intercourse and burning sensation after sex.  I also crave sugar like mad.  I don’t like to take drugs.  What can I do to get rid of these symptoms?

A.        It sounds like both you and your husband have yeast infections.  For you, yeast infections can make your vaginal tissue raw and sensitive to friction.  Decrease of estrogen can also cause dryness and painful intercourse.  If you feel the burning sensation, it is probably due to the possibility that your husband’s semen is loaded with yeasts.

In this case both you and your husband need to be treated.  Otherwise, you would be giving yeast infections back and forth to each other.

Here are my recommendations:

  1. Yeast-Free Nutrition:

This is a nutritional program you and your husband need to adhere to as much as you can for life.  It contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemical.  All of these items will feed the yeasts and parasites, clog your liver and kidneys, and thus worsen the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites.  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:

Both you and your husband will benefit from our Herbal Detox: Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance TeaYeast-Para Control is designed to remove excess yeasts, parasites, and toxins.  Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to flush the debris Yeast-Para Control creates while also cleansing the liver and kidneys.

Furthermore, consider Female Vitality for hormonal regeneration.  Your estrogen level can decrease after menopause.  Female Vitality can balance your female hormones and make your vaginal walls moister.

Take Herbal Cocktail for sugar craving. Herbal Cocktail is a high-protein herbal drink that nourishes your body and starves yeasts and parasites.  Your sugar craving would be stopped with regular consumption of Herbal Cocktail.

  1. Stress Management:

The sexiest organ is your brain.  If you and your husband have unresolved psychological issues, this can cause problems in the bedroom.  Read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing. It gives you a few tools to manage stress more effectively.  If you want to consider psychological counseling, the following is the contact information.

Menopause is when you have not had a period (or even light spotting) for 12 consecutive months. The menopausal symptoms experienced by most women actually occur during pre- or peri-menopause period.

During the peri-menopause stage, three key hormones such estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone fluctuate, and mostly are on the decline.  Consequently, you may experience various symptoms.  The most common ones are hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, irritability, insomnia, irregular periods, loss of libido, painful intercourse, difficulty concentrating, itchy skin, headaches, bloating, gastro-intestinal disturbances (such as gas), weight gain, hair loss or thinning, light-headedness, depression and anxiety.

As your estrogen levels decline during pre-menopause,your vagina wall will become thinner and weaker. Consequently, it can be easily irritated during intercourse and leave tiny scars or cuts where bacteria and yeasts can flourish.  So, vaginal yeast infections become common symptoms associated with menopause.

Treatment basically consists of regulating the hormonal levels.  Female Vitality is excellent for that purpose.  Female Vitality contains more than 20 ingredients of high quality Chinese herbs such as Ho-Shou-Wu, black cohosh, wild yam, etc. and absorbable vitamins needed for health promotion and maintenance.  The end results:  improved conditions for your hair, nail and skin, increased mental clarity, uplifted mood, productivity and sexual energy.

Based on my more than 30 years of clinical experience, I have found that women who do not have a healthy lifestyle tend to suffer more menopausal symptoms.  For example, when sugar consumption is high, episodes of hot flashes also increase. Therefore, it’s important to follow a yeast-free nutritional program that contains no sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and chemicals.  It comes to a conscious decision between following the yeast-free nutritional program, or suffering from various menopausal symptoms.  If you would like to find out more about what you should eat (and what to avoid), follow the recipes in my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

If you have excess toxins in your body which acerbate the menopausal symptoms, consider our Herbal Detox program (consisting of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) to remove the toxins. 

Lifestyle changes are also important for promoting a healthy menopausal process. These include regular exercise, becoming a non-smoker, and getting physically and mentally fit.  To promote your mental health, I encourage you to follow the guidelines in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing

The symptoms of menopause usually last for the whole menopause transition (until the mid 50s), but some women may experience them for the rest of their lives.  Therefore, it’s important to adopt a holistic approach to eradicate or prevent menopausal symptoms.
