The real problem Americans face is consuming too many simple carbohydrates.  An average American eats 120 pounds of refined sugar per year.   Sugar is everywhere – in bread, pies, cookies, candies, salad dressings, ketchup, etc.  As I’ve indicated repeatedly in previous articles, sugar feeds the yeasts and parasites in your body and facilitates fermentation.  That’s why your stomach feels bloated, your sinuses are congested, and your mind is foggy after consuming refined sugar.

What is the difference between simple and complex carbohydrates?   Simple carbohydrates such as refined sugar in cookies, candies, ice cream, etc. contain “empty calories.”  Empty calories burn and dissipate quickly.  That’s why you get hungry easily even after you’ve had a meal high in empty calories.   Foods that contain complex carbohydrates include whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.  In order for your body to utilize calories generated by complex carbohydrates, foods have to be properly digested.  The digestion and absorption process of complex carbohydrates is slower than that for simple carbohydrates.  That’s why you don’t get hungry easily or crave more foods when you ingest foods containing complex carbohydrates.

What should you do then to maintain a well-balanced diet and not get lost in the diet jungle?  Follow Dr. J’s yeast-free nutritional program!  My clients call the program “Dr. J’s Eight Commandments.”  These Eight Commandments include no refined sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, and no chemicals.  All of the above are favorite foods for yeasts and parasites in your body.  When you indulge in the above items, your enemies — yeasts and parasites — will have a rock ‘n roll party in your body!

Some people may not be able to fully commit to Dr. J’s Eight Commandments 100%.  However, if you follow them 50%, you will get 50% of the benefits; if you follow them 75%, you will get 75% of the benefits; and this is better than 0%.  Don’t let the excuse of “either-or” stop you from making an effort.  I have seen people waiting for the “perfect time” such as after the holidays or special occasions.  However, the perfect time would never come and they are still suffering from yeast disorder symptoms (including weight problems) year in and year out.

Once you follow my yeast-free nutritional program, you will enjoy physical and mental fitness on a consistent basis.  This yeast-free nutritional program has stood the test of many decades for thousands of my clients, including myself.  Personally I have lost 50 pounds and kept it off by practicing what I preach.  This life-long dietary habit will also save you 30 to 50% on grocery bills as reported by my clients!

If you wish to learn what you should eat and what you should avoid, go to your local public library to read my books, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, and Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.  You may also call our office at 1-800-715-3053 or 818-472-2213 to order hard copies or order e-books online: www.drjsbest.com.  The guidelines provided in these two books are life long guidelines, not just when you want to lose weight or get rid of yeast and parasitic infections.  Once you make a commitment to a healthy lifestyle, you won’t need any fad diets to boost the result!

Q.      My granddaughter has ADHD. She has been given tons of medication by “traditional” doctors. My belief is and will always be that natural products are the best. I just wonder how much longer she will be on “drugs.”

A.       Usually children with ADD or ADHD continue to be on Ritalin or other stimulants into their adult life.  The majority of parents choose to medicate (or overmedicate rather) their children to make everyone’s lives easier.  Little do they know that the side effects of Ritalin or other stimulants continue to haunt these children even into adulthood.

Some of the common side effects I have observed include nervousness, agitation, sleep disorder, fatigue, arthritis-like aches and pains, excessive mucous, bloating, etc.

There are natural remedies for ADD or ADHD.  Unfortunately, most parents and treating physicians go for the “quick” or “easy fix” at the expense of the future of these children.  A quick fix can actually turn into a long-term nightmare.

To get long-lasting results, parents have to be willing to use a drug-free, holistic approach to treating their children’s ADD or ADHD.  As a grandparent, perhaps you can suggest incorporating herbal remedies into the treatment regimen and slowly wean your granddaughter from the drugs.  Also, by any means, have your granddaughter avoid refined sugar in her diet.  I have found that children will actually follow the regimen when their parents cooperate.  The decision is in the hands of the parents, not the treating doctors.

Perhaps you can introduce your daughter and /or son-in-law to this fan page so that they would have a chance to learn more about drug-free, holistic alternatives to treating your granddaughter’s ADHD.
