Q.        I suffered from acid reflux for about two years.  My symptoms got worse whenever I drank tea, ate raw food or pickles.  I don’t want to take all these antacids.  Can you tell me about natural remedies for it?

A.        Acid reflux is usually associated with stress, poor dietary habit, and yeast and parasitic infections.  You need to work on three aspects to regain your health.

1) Stress management:

Stress is a part of life.  Learn to manage your stress effectively and let it propel you to the next level of success.  Meditation is a great way to manage your day-to-day stress.  If you are too busy, or too lazy, or both (like my clients confess to me) to meditate, then go to my website to download a FREE 10-minute meditation guide: www.drjsbest.com.  Practice this 10-minute meditation everyday.  You will soon fill your heart with love, peace and harmony.

2) Adopt an Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program:

When you adopt an Ant-Yeast Nutritional program which contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no chemicals, your body would become more alkaline than acidic.  Also, regular tea contains caffeine.  Pickles are fermented and have yeasts.  That’s why they create more acid for your body and bother your stomach.  My yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking will give you more information about what to eat and what to avoid.

3) Herbal Therapy to Cleanse Yeast and Parasites:

Stress can lower your immunity and make your body prone to the attacks of yeasts, parasites, bacteria and viruses.  Poor dietary habit (Standard American Diet – SAD) creates an acidic environment for yeasts and parasites to overgrow.  It’s a double whammy!  Use our Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) to remove harmful, excess yeasts and parasites.

Acid reflux is easily treatable if you follow the above natural remedies.

Q.        Is Fibromyalgia Hereditary?

A.        According to the staff at the Mayo clinic, “if one of your parents or siblings has fibromyalgia, chances are you will get it!”  According to my more than 30 years of clinical experience, I have found that fibromyalgia is not hereditary!  As described in previous articles, the probable causes of fibromyalgia are yeast and parasitic infections, poor dietary habits, lack of exercise, dampness, psychological stress, and vitamin L (L for Love) deficiency.

If your mother had yeast and parasitic infections when she was pregnant with you, chances are you would be born with the yeast and parasitic infection symptoms because they can be passed on to you through blood stream and /or birth canal.  Even though this cause is “congenital;” it’s not “hereditary” because of “genes.”

Besides, while growing up, you would knowingly or unknowingly adopt your parents’ lifestyle, including their dietary habits, the way they handle stress and conflicts, the way they express love and affections, their physical activities, etc.  Therefore, my observation is that fibromyalgia is a learned behavior rather than “hereditary.”

Many scientists including the staff at the Mayo clinic are looking for the “genes” that cause fibromyalgia.  Until this day, their conclusion is that the cause of fibromyalgia is “UNKNOWN!”

Your thyroid gland produces two main hormones, triiodothyronine (T-3) and thyroxine (T-4).  They maintain the rate at which your body uses fats and carbohydrates, help control your body temperature, regulate heart rate and the production of protein. Your thyroid gland also produces calcitonin, a hormone that regulates the amount of calcium in your blood.

According to the Mayo Clinic, causes of hypothyroidism include auto-immune disease (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis), overtreatment of hyperthyroidism, radiation therapy for cancer, side effects of some medication such as lithium, thyroid surgery, and congenital conditions.  The Mayo Clinic staff claimed that the causes of auto-immune and congenital diseases are unknown.  The known causes are actually the results of mistreatment by the medical professionals.

According to my clinical observation of the clients I’ve worked with in the past 30 years, the major causes are as follows:

Poor Dietary Habits:

Excessive intake of sugar and fats make the thyroid gland overworked, and then exhausted.  When the thyroid gland is sluggish, the production of T3 and T4 are not sufficient to metabolize the overload of sugar and fats.  So, the vicious circle continues.  The end results are weight gain from sluggish metabolism, puffiness of the face, swollen ankles or swollen feet from water retention, cold hands or cold feet from poor temperature regulation, fatigue from insufficient use of the energy from food, hair loss from toxin build up in the kidneys, depression from low energy and a cluster of physical and mental symptoms, the list goes on.

Yeast and Parasitic Infections:

As I stated in previous articles, yeasts and parasites develop colonies at sites that are weak in your body.  When your thyroid function is weak, this area becomes a good incubator for yeasts and parasites.  Of course, this creates another vicious circle for the already sluggish thyroid gland.


Stress, if not handled properly, can tense up all the organs, glands, nerves, and cells, and deplete the supply of blood, oxygen and nutrients to support their proper functions in your body.  Thus, a series of psychosomatic diseases can occur in addition to hypothyroidism.

Iodine Deficiency:

The trace mineral iodine is essential for the production of thyroid hormones.  If there is insufficient iodine in your diet, hypothyroidism can result from this deficiency.

The above causes are the most common for hypothyroidism according to my clinical experience.  The good news is that there are natural remedies without the need for drugs or surgery.  Stay tuned.  I will discuss holistic treatment methods in the next article.
