Posts Tagged ‘psychological stress’

When people suffer a severe case of yeast and parasitic infections, not only are their bodies toxic, but so are their minds!  These people usually have had traumatic childhood or early adulthood experiences which have made them angry, resentful, frustrated, regretful and negative.  As mentioned previously, carrying negative emotions day in and day out is just like driving your car with the hand brake on.  It will cause a lot of wear and tear on your immune system!  Based on my experiences counseling thousands of people thus far, I have found that psychological stress is actually the most important cause for adult onset of yeast and parasitic infections!  If these negative emotions are not released effectively, the rest of the regimens discussed so far would only provide a temporary relief.

It is like cleaning up a vast field of tall weeds.  An anti-yeast nutritional program, herbal therapy, exercise and other treatment methods only serve the function of chopping down the weeds above the ground.  Psychological detoxification and nourishment serve to uproot the core problem from underground.  If this uprooting is not done, the field may appear to be clean for a while.  Nevertheless, when the summer rainfall comes, the weeds will grow like crazy again.  Similarly, when a person is confronted with life crises, the problem of yeast and parasitc overgrowth may reoccur!  Spiritual psychotherapy, writing “reconcile letters”, meditation, and hypnosis are some useful ways to combat this.

Q.        Is fibromyalgia hereditary?

A.        In my experience, fibromyalgia is not hereditary, it is a learned behavior.  The reason it appears to “run in the family” is because family members tend to share the same or similar dietary habits, outlook on life, and lifestyle.

Symptoms of fibromyalgia include chronic widespread pain in the joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues, accompanied by sleep disturbances, headaches, chronic fatigue, mind fog, depression and anxiety.  In some severe cases, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and irritable bowel syndrome are also present.

Currently there are no diagnostic tests, such as x-rays or blood tests, to detect fibromyalgia.  The diagnosis of fibromyalgia is based on self reports.  Fibromyalgia affects people of all ages in both females and males, but is most common among women aged 20 to 50.

Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience working with clients with fibromyalgia, I have found that causes of fibromyalgia include yeast and parasitic infections, poor dietary habits, lack of exercise (including sexercise), perception of being un-loved, emotional and/or physical trauma, and stress.

I will discuss how to overcome symptoms of fibromyalgia in the next article, please stay tuned.

In order to control your weight permanently, you need to nourish your body, mind, and spirit on a consistent basis.  In the previous articles,  I discussed strategies to nourish your body.  To summarize, it’s important to follow a yeast-free nutritional program so your body will not suffer new assaults.  It’s also important to use Herbal Cocktail to curb your appetitite, stop sugar craving, nourish your body, and starve yeasts and parasites.  In addition, you can faciliate weight loss the safe and healthy way by using Fitness Regular as a fat blocker, and Fitness Plus as a fat burner.

The following strategies will help you effectively manage your stress, nourish your mind, and balance your spirit:

Manage Your Stress Effectively:

Psychological stress, if managed properly, can be motivating and beneficial.  The first step is to accept instead of resist stress.  Accept the fact that you are being challenged.  Be cognizant of the fact that Life is like school: before you can obtain a diploma or degree, you must be willing and able to do your homework and pass a series of tests, whether pleasant or unpleasant.  The good news is that even if you fail, the universe will provide you with unlimited opportunities to go through the tests again and again until you pass them!  Therefore, your clock is not ticking.  Time is irrelevant!

Follow the Emotional Releasing Technique instructions in Chapter 11 of Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, to release your psychological toxins and allow yourself to move on with your life with a clean slate.    Some self-administered techniques such as self-hypnosis, meditation, prayers and affirmations can also be helpful in reducing stress physically and psychologically.  If psychological stress becomes paralyzing, then you should seek competent professional help.

Restore Spiritual Balance:

Spiritually speaking, all of us chose our destiny when we were born into this life.  No matter what kind of life situation we are in, we are given an opportunity to prove that we have the strength, tenacity, wisdom and faith to overcome obstacles and excel.

The only way to get out of the rut of a dysfunctional life situation is to exercise your unconditional love and wisdom.

Use the principles described in Chapter 11 of Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healingto understand, accept, forgive and release.  Once you can release the negative emotions toward those who have done you wrong, you can release the negative past that has been haunting you.  When you no longer carry the old baggage, you no longer carry the excess weight!  Love and respect yourself as the most unique, creative and miraculous person in the world.  If you cannot accomplish this on your own, seeking help from a spiritually-oriented, well-grounded therapist can be fruitful.

Exercise Daily:

One last thing I want to stress is the importance of exercising daily.  It’s clear that exercise improves your blood circulation, brings more oxygen to your body cells, burns calories, and generate endorphins.  Endorphins are natural hormones, and can be considered as morphine from within.  Morphine is a pain killer.  If you experience stiffness or arthritic pain, exercise will reduce or eliminate the aches and pains.   From a psychological perspective, endorphins also gives you calm, high feelings.  Because these feelings don’t last, you need to exercise daily to generate new supplies of endorphins.

You might say, “I don’t have membership to a gym!”  You can exercise without a gym. Slow walking in your neighborhood or park for 30 minutes a day is a good way to exercise.  Or, you may jog in place for 10 minutes a day to start.  Where there is a will, there is a way!

Your weight and health problems did not occur overnight.  Naturally, becoming trim and getting well takes time.  Only your understanding of the illness and wellness process, commitment and patience will bring you positive and permanent results!

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, 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.

According to my clinical experience, Leaky gut syndrome is a cluster of symptoms caused by digestive tract inflammation.  Symptoms include: 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, Chrohn’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.  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 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, they also damage the linings on the walls of the GI tract.

 

2)    Poor dietary habit:

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, or guilt is like driving a car with the hand-break on.  It causes wear and tear to 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 all kinds of illnesses.

 

4)    Liberal use of antibiotics:

 

The western medical establishment uses antibiotics as a “catch all” magic bullet for all infections without consideration to strengthening the immunity.  In fact, excessive use of antibiotics 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 little time to come back; while the “good guys” take a long time to rebuild.  Thus, an imbalance is created, and yeast overgrowth becomes an additional health issues for you to handle.

 

In the next article, I will discuss the holistic treatment to repair the leaky guts and regain your health.  Stay tuned.

Q.           Do you have any patients with Fibromyalgia that have type 0 negative blood?

A.            There are four blood types: A, B, AB, and O. There is no O negative blood.  There is Rh positive (present) and Rh negative (absent).  During a pregnancy, if the father is Rh positive, the pregnant mother is Rh negative, and the baby is Rh positive, then the mother may be “sensitized” to this blood type difference.   A sensitized mother’s blood may develop antibodies to the baby’s blood and cause hemolytic disease resulting in a low blood count for the baby.  The mother can be treated with RhIg injections to desensitize.

Other than pregnancy, Rh factor does not affect your health in any way.  As I detailed in previous articles, the probable cause of fibromyalgia are yeast and parasitic infections, poor dietary habits, lack of exercise, dampness, psychological stress, and vitamin L (L for Love) deficiency.  All these factors can happen to anyone.   So, the belief that people with Rh negative are more prone to fibromyalgia is a myth.

I have come across clients with fibromyalgia with all blood types.  As long as they get on our Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) and Hormonal Regeneration (Female Vitality or Male Vitality) programs and adopt the holistic treatment as described in previous articles, they would experience improvement, regardless of blood types.

Q.        Does recurrent candidiasis in the early stage of life link with fibromyalgia later in life?

A.        The probable causes of fibromyalgia include: yeast and parasitic infections, poor dietary habits, lack of exercise, dampness, psychological stress, and vitamin L (L for love) deficiency.  Candida Albicans is one strain of harmful yeasts.  Candidiasis is a common type of yeast infection.  When a person has recurrent candidiasis, toxins have been built up in tissues, muscles, joints, and tendons. This in turn, causes widespread aches and pain.

Fibromyalgia can occur at any age, ranging from young children to the elderly.  Therefore, there is a term called “juvenile fibromyalgia.”  In fact, I suspect that fibromyalgia affects infants too, since babies can be born with yeast and parasitic infection symptoms. It’s just that they are not able to express this verbally except through crying.

Luckily fibromyalgia is treatable.  For symptom relief, herbal therapy is quite effective. Our Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) and Hormonal Regeneration(Female Vitalityor Male Vitality) programs work wonders to eliminate aches and pain, and to remove mind fog. Herbal therapy together with other holistic treatment methods detailed in previous articles can eradicate the causes and symptoms of fibromyalgia.
