Q.        I am 52 years old.  I did not have period for about a year.  All of a sudden, I had a good amount of period last month, then it stopped.  I am glad it did.  However, my menopausal symptoms had increased.  They include hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, loss of sexual drive, weight gain, depression and extreme fatigue.  How much longer would I suffer from these symptoms?  Can you recommend holistic treatment for them?

A.        The symptoms you described are typical menopausal symptoms.  With proper treatment, these menopausal symptoms can be controlled.  Otherwise, they can linger for the rest of your life.  The following holistic treatment methods are most effective for menopause according to my clinical experience:

1.  Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program:

When you follow my “Eight Commandments:” no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals, your symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings will be under control.

2.  Herbal Therapy:

Take the following formulas that I formulated for you to regain your health. For example: Take the Herbal Detox Package (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) for removing yeasts, parasites, and toxins; and Female Vitality for balancing hormones such as estrogen to regain your sexual libido, increase your energy, and uplift your depression.  I also recommend our Fitness Plus (a fat burner) for weight control.

3.  Stress Management:

Meditate daily to reduce your day-to-day-stress.  Go to my website: www.drjsbest.com  to download a FREE 10-minute meditation guide.  If you practice daily, you will enjoy peace and harmony in your life whether you are in menopause or not.

4. Regular Exercise:

Regular exercise improves blood circulation, and gives you a regular supply of endorphins (a natural chemical that can make you feel calm and happy).  Regular exercise also burns calories and reduces weight.  If you experience extreme fatigue, just start slow walking or in-place jogging for five minutes, and gradually build up.

When you adopt the above holistic approach, you will be able to reduce or eliminate menopausal symptoms and enjoy the absence of monthly inconvenience!

Q.        I have lost and gained at least 100 pounds in the past two years.  I am sick and tired of these weight yo-yo’s.  How can I lose weight and stay off?

A.        Weight yo-yo (weight cycling) is very common when people seek a “quick fix” for their weight problems.  You need to make a commitment to a healthier lifestyle if you want long-lasting results.  I personally lost 50 pounds and have been staying fit for the past three decades (even after two pregnancies).  The commonly used excuses such as carrying baby fat after pregnancies and slowdown of the metabolism with age, etc. would not affect you if you follow the following recommendations:

1.  Yeast-Free Nutritional Program:

Remember, I don’t call this a “yeast-free diet”, because “diet” would denote a temporary fix.  I call it a nutritional program because this is for life.  In this nutritional program, you choose food that nourishes your body and starves your “little enemies”: yeasts and parasites.   The yeast-free nutritional program consists of no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  I know this is a tall order for most Americans, because the Standard American Diet (SAD) is loaded with theses no-no’s and causes both childhood and adult obesity.  Do the best you can – You will get benefits proportional to your effort.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

2.  Herbal Therapy:

A yeast-free nutritional program prevents new toxins from entering your body.  If your body already has toxin and fat build up, you need to consider herbal formulas that can remove toxins and burn the existing fat.  To help my clients lose weight effectively, I usually recommend our Herbal Detox(Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) together with the Weight Management (Herbal Cocktail, Fitness Regular, and Fitness Plus) program.  In order for your body to boost your metabolism, it’s essential that you have the toxins removed.

3.  Proper Hydration:

Dehydration can cause your entire body system to break down, including metabolic function.  Drink eight to 10 glasses of liquid (about eight oz. each glass) per day.  Your body needs this amount of liquid to ensure good blood circulation and smooth transportation of nutrients to your body cells.  If you are on our Herbal Detoxand Weight Management programs, you will have 6 cups of Cleansing-Balance Teaper day, plus one to two glasses of an Herbal Cocktailsmoothie, plus one cup of soup if you follow my yeast-free cookbook.  You are also welcome to drink one to two glasses of water in addition to the above.  Thus, your body will be properly hydrated if you are on our recommended programs.  When your body is properly hydrated, you don’t feel hungry as easily.  The food you ingest would be better digested and the nutrients will be properly absorbed.

4.  Daily Exercise:

Exercise improves your blood circulation and increases the absorption of our herbal formulas.  Exercise also generate endorphins (the morphine within) which can reduce or prevent the aches and pains in your body.  It also gives you a feeling of being calm and high.  According to some of my clients, it’s better than marijuana!

Some people use excuses such as no money for gym membership, no gym nearby, not liking the people in the gym, etc.  Here is my suggestion: you don’t need to go to the gym to exercise.  You can do slow walking around the block in your neighborhood, or walk in a mall if you are concerned about your safety, or simply jog in place at home.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

5.  Cleansing Mental Toxins:

Weight is often used as a subconscious protection shield.  Most of my clients with overweight conditions had been abused physically, sexually, and/or mentally.  Until the negative emotions such as anger, resentment, fear, regret, guilt, etc are cleared up with spiritual/psychological counseling, the weight yo-yo’s can continue on a subconscious level.  I highly recommend spiritual counseling here because I help my clients find meaning in the suffering.  Traditional psychotherapy can take a long time and still not achieve the same result.  Read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healingfor more details.

Maintaining your ideal weight is a life-long journey in staying physically and mentally fit.  No fad diet can accomplish this.  You must make a total commitment to a healthy lifestyle!  Our herbal programs will make it much easier to achieve this lifestyle.

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!

According to the National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research, at least 40 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders (insomnia) and another 20 to 30 million experience occasional sleep problems.

Causes of insomnia may include a wide variety of things such as stress (too many things on one’s mind), anxiety, depression, side effects of medication one takes, the amount of caffeine one drinks (caffeinated coffee and/or tea),  going to bed hungry, etc.

Common symptoms of insomnia include:

  • Difficulty falling asleep at night or getting back to sleep after waking during the night.
  • Sleep is light and fragmented
  • The need of taking sleeping pills, and/or use of nightcaps in order to get to sleep.
  • Experience of sleepiness, fatigue, low energy, poor mental concentration, low productivity, depression, and irritability during the day.

Drug Free, Holistic Treatment for Insomnia:

Based on my more than 30 years of clinical experience, the most effective natural remedies are to remove both physical and mental toxins.  The following have been reported by my clients as most effective:

1)    Yeast-Free Nutritional Program:

When yeasts and parasites are well fed, they can keep you awake at night, because they love a still environment.  As much as you can, stay on a yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine nor chemicals.   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:

Our Herbal Detox program: Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea are designed to remove excess yeasts, parasites, and toxins.  Therefore, you can rest more peacefully and harmoniously at night.  Staying on our Herbal Detox program may help you wean yourself off of medication you may be taking, especially medication that is supposed to treat other drugs’ side effects.

2)    Regular Exercise:

In addition to your exercise routine during the day time, slow walking after dinner is particularly beneficial to your digestion and can help you sleep better.  The endorphins (endo-morphine) generated through this low impact exercise give a sense of calmness and harmony.

3)    Not Going to Bed Hungry:

An empty stomach can keep you awake!  Have some sugar free, dairy free, wheat free, and yeast free snack ready if you must eat something before bed.  In my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking, there are some recipes for baked goods such as muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. you can bake, and have them ready if need them to avoid hypoglycemia.  Have one of these baked goods with a warm cup of Cleansing-Balance Tea and a scoop of Herbal CocktailYour stomach will be happy and this will help you sleep through the night.  For a parallel, have you observed that hungry babies tend to wake up frequently at night?

4)    Salt Shower and Warm Bath:

Take a salt shower first, then soak in warm to hot water for 10 to 15 minutes before bed.  Salt showers clean the negative energy that has been clinging onto you; and the warm bath relaxes your tight muscles.

5)    Ten-Minute Meditation:

For those with tight schedules, my Ten-Minute meditation technique works very well for insomnia because it’s short and easy to follow.  To learn this simple technique, read my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

6)    Emotional Releasing Technique:

Another technique you can use is the Emotional Releasing Technique in my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic HealingThis can help you release the insomniac energy and quickly help you get to or fall back to sleep.

If you combine any of the above recommendations, chances are you will have a surprisingly good night’s sleep and say goodbye to insomnia without drugs!  If your sleep disorders are caused by unfinished business, you will get long-lasting results if you uproot the core of your stress, anxiety, or depression.  You might need to consult with an experienced counselor who specializes in spiritual counseling to accomplish this.

Q.        I have been depressed for years.  I am now on three kinds of anti-depressants and two kinds of sleeping pills.  Can I take these medications and Dr. J’s products at the same time?  I am on a budget.  What herbal products can I take?

A.        There are no conflicts between our herbal products and antidepressants or sleeping pills.  Symptoms of depression vary among different individuals.  Our herbal products can
provide you with some degree of symptom relief. For example, Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) is good to remove excess yeasts and parasites in your body, and allow you to sleep better at night.  This may reduce your dependency on sleeping pills.

Male Vitality or Female Vitality are good to uplift your mood, give you calm energy, and improve your mental clarity and productivity.  This product is great for depression if taken on a consistent basis.

It is also important for you to adhere to a yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  Many clients reported to me that they get very depressed when they consume sugar or wheat.  Why?  When your little enemies yeasts and parasites are well-fed with their favorite food, they thrive!  Especially at night when the environment is still. This may cause insomnia.  Consequently, you feel fatigued, have low energy and low productivity the following day.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Exercise (slow walking), prayers, meditation, tapping, etc. are very helpful self-administered methods to reduce depression.   Please read my previous article or my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing for details.

As I mentioned in the previous article, there is no single cause for depression.  Therefore, there is no single effective treatment for depression.  Commonly used anti-depressants all have side effects.  Although the treating psychiatrist may switch the medication from one kind to the other, or adjust the dosage, the results from this “band-aid” approach are not necessarily desirable.

Since depression is caused by feelings of some sort of loss, or of being “stuck” or “trapped,” the treatment should focus on how to become “unstuck.”   A Harvard trained physician, Dr. James Gordon, has employed a holistic approach to treating Post-Traumatic Disorders among teenagers who have experienced various wars.  The end results to his approach were a significant reduction in depression and violence.

The following are drug-free treatment methods that have been time proven for three decades to be effective with my clients:

Yeast-Free Nutrition:

A yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals, will nourish your body and starve the little enemies within: yeasts and parasites.  Otherwise, yeasts and parasites can be very active at night when the environment is relatively still. This can keep you awake or cause sleeping disorders.    To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Herbal Detox:

When your body is loaded with toxins, it becomes fatigued due to being overworked in trying to purge all the toxins.  In order for your body to activate the innate intelligence to heal itself, one needs to remove existing toxins.  Our Herbal Detox program (consisting of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) are excellent to achieve this purpose.

Meditation:

Meditation is a practice to achieve a state of calmness and peace.  Some people also use this practice to train the mind to develop insight.  When the mind is centered, the body functions better.  Many people report that both their mental and physical health improve after a period of meditation.  In the case of depression, it’s very helpful to gain insight into the causes of depression, and invoke solutions from your higher self, or supernatural power. 

In the western world, people are always pressured for time.  There is fast food, fast photo, and so on.  Thus, I came up with “fast meditation” to suit the needs of people living in a contemporary society!  Based on my more than thirty years of experience in meditation, I have designed a 10-minute meditation technique which can quickly help you quiet your mind and give you a sense of peace and deep relaxation.  If you wish to learn about this 10-minute meditation, please read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

Visualization:

Once you have gained insight into the causes of depression (whether it’s personal or business affairs), visualize solutions.  Focus on what you want.  Rewrite the script for your life drama, and visualize that the new script is well-acted by you, the main actor (star).  Fake it until you make it!  Your subconscious mind does not know the difference.  Your mind would only manifest for you what you impress upon it.

Uplifting your mood:

Watch funny movies often and have a good laugh!  Remember the good old saying, “Laughter is the best medicine”!  Our Female Vitality or Male Vitality would also be helpful in increasing your energy, improving mental clarity, and uplifting your mood.

Exercise:

As you are aware, exercise improves blood circulation and increases energy flow.  Lack of exercise can cause sluggish blood flow.  A stagnant environment can become an incubator for yeasts to overgrow.  When blood circulation is smooth, toxins in the body can also be flushed out more easily.

Slow walking is the preferred form of exercise for people who are depressed. Depending on your energy level, you may start from 10 minutes of slow walking to 30 minutes or one hour a day.  Choose the best time of the day you can walk consistently.  If you can choose a location where there are trees and/or flowers with white clouds and blue skies, the effect will be further enhanced.  If not, walking around in a shopping mall is just fine. 

Prayers:

For those of you who believe in God, or the universe, or your higher self, PUSH – Pray Until Something Happens.  Here is an example of prayers:

“Thank you God (or the universe) for guiding me thus far!  Now I need your further assistance to make more progress.  Please give me strength, courage, resources and guidance to stay on the right track to improve my health (business, relationships, etc.).”

Remember, express your gratitude first, and then ask for more help!

Tapping:

I have learned this wonderful technique recently and have found it very effective in releasing all sorts of emotional or physical strain.  Healing would take place quickly when physical and emotional toxins are removed.  I won’t be able to include details about tapping in this article because it’s a book in itself.  If you need more information, the following is the contact information:
