Posts Tagged ‘Standard American Diet (SAD)’

Standard American Diet (SAD) usually contains a large amount of sugar, dairy, wheat, and yeasts.  In the past few weeks I have been posting why these food items are detrimental to your health.

Hopefully it is clear to you now that sugar, dairy, wheat and yeast products are favorite foods for yeasts and parasites.  Unfortunately, a great number of people live on these foods.  When you feed the favorite foods to yeasts and parasites, they are so happy that they start an instant rock n’and roll party!  After having a great time, like any other beings, they have to go to the bathroom.  They then use your body as a toilet to dump lots of toxins.

When they suck your energy through their strong, vampire-like hooks, you experience extreme fatigue or lethargy because when you eat, you are actually feeding an extended family in your body.  When yeasts and parasites deposit toxins, you may suffer from allergy symptoms such as sinus congestion, headaches, arthritis-like aches and pains, lower back pain, bloatedness, constipation, or bladder or kidney infections.  Yeasts, parasites and their toxins can clog the liver, pancreas and thyroid and make your blood sugar metabolism sluggish.  This is one of the causes for hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).  Hypoglycemia can then contribute to headaches, foggy mind, poor mental concentration, poor memory and irritability.  Another factor contributing to your foggy mind is that when yeasts ferment in your body, a by-product, ammonia, can alter your thinking process and cause disorientation.

Are you suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)?  Review the following checklist to find out:

  • Are you having trouble concentrating?
  • Are you forgetful?
  • Are you impulsive?
  • Are you hyperactive?
  • Do you talk very fast?
  • Is your speech slow or slurred?
  • Are you a smart thinker and yet a slow learner?
  • Are you prone to motion-related phobias (such as fears of moving elevators, escalators, cars, planes, trains, or crowds)?
  • Are you often depressed, anxious and irritable?

If you’ve checked off more than three items, then chances are you are among the five million Americans who suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or ADHD!  Despite the growing attention this disorder has received in the past few decades, the diagnostic and treatment process remains elusive, complex, and inclusive!

Possible Causes of ADD or ADHD:

ADD or ADHD can affect children, adolescents, and adults.  Each case can differ widely in terms of symptoms, causes, therapeutic process and prognosis.  After dealing with numerous children and adults with ADD or ADHD, I have found the following common factors:

Physical Factors:

The most common physical factor I have found, which may be shocking to many, is yeast infection involving the inner or middle ears.  Dr. Harold Levinson in his book, Total Concentration (1990) states that more than 80% of patients with ADD he has seen suffered from inner-ear infections.  He explains in great detail how the inner-ear system or the cerebellar-vestibular system (CVS) controls the flow of sensory information entering the brain.  When this system is impaired by infections of the inner ear, your vision, hearing, balance, senses of direction, motion, altitude, depth, and smell, and all motor information leaving the brain can be scrambled.  Consequently, this auditory drift results in problems in balance and coordination, concentration, memory, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.  In some cases, speech timing is off, which can result in rapid speech or slow, slurred speech.  A malfunctioning inner ear has difficulty processing motor input; this in turn makes the affected individual prone to motion-related phobias such as fear of moving elevators, escalators, cars, planes, trains, buses and crowds.

What Dr. Levinson failed to address was what this inner-ear infection is all about and what causes it.  In my experience, this inner-ear infection is yeast infection that can be contracted before or after birth.  If a pregnant woman has yeast infections, she can give the infections to her baby through the blood stream and/or birth canal.  The baby can be born with yeast infections manifesting symptoms such as eye or ear infections, respiratory tract congestion and colic.

Psychological Factors:

Most children and adults with ADD or ADHD suffer from psychological distress.  The following is a good example:        

Mary, a 19-year-old Caucasian college student was brought to my office because of her impulsive eating, which resulted in overweight problems, poor mental concentration, resistant behavior, constant chattering, rapid speech, poor academic performance and low self-esteem.  Mary exhibited the above behavior while she was in the elementary school.  She was doing fairly well while she was placed in a private high school with a structured routine.  After entering college, she was overwhelmed by the “complicated life of a sophomore” and her previous pattern of ADD behavior began to worsen.

Dietary Factors:

The Standard American Diet (SAD) has created many SAD stories.  Over-consumption of food containing sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and chemicals (including food preservatives and coloring, and heavy metals) has caused every American yeast overgrowth at one time or the other, to a greater or lesser degree.  Symptoms of yeast disorder that contribute to ADD include headaches, poor mental concentration (foggy mind), middle or inner ear infections, strep throat, nasal congestion, mood swings, depression and phobias.

Environmental Factors:

Many people with ADD live in an environment that contributes to or worsens their disorders.  Children with ADD or ADHD often have parents who also suffer from ADD.  Some parents recognize their disorders; however, most don’t.  Many schoolteachers also have ADD, but most don’t recognize or don’t want to admit to the affliction.  Stress due to parents’ divorce, illness, financial hardship, etc., also can complicate a child’s ADD or ADHD.

If ADD or ADHD is untreated during childhood, the symptoms will continue into adolescence and adulthood.  If the environment is non-understanding and non-supportive, the difficulty in dealing with everyday demands will be exacerbated.

In the next article, I will discuss the treatment of ADD or ADHD.  Stay tuned!

Q.        I had digestion problems all my life. I have IBS on the constipation side and I am not able to have any milk products. I cramp up and the gas just sits in my digestion. I have gone to many doctors and they want me to go on medical drugs and I don’t like taking them. I would never get well by eating right and do it natural. Please I need some advice. I am so lost. Thank you for listening to me.  

A.         Irritated Bowel Syndrome (IBS) consists of a cluster of digestive tract symptoms including alternation of constipation and diarrhea, flatulence (gas), gas pain, fatigue, foggy mind, depression, etc.  The major causes of IBS are the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites, and chronic stress.

As in the articles I posted before, and as detailed in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are physical and psychological causes of yeasts and parasitic infections.

Physical causes include indulgence in yeast-favorite food (Standard American Diet – SAD) containing sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and chemicals, excessive use of antibiotics, lack of exercise, pre-existing illnesses, poor hygiene, sexual contact and the breakdown of the immune system.  Psychological causes include unfinished business, boredom, and “Busy-Taking-Care-of-Others Syndrome”.  Psychological stress is actually the primary cause of yeast disorders. 

To effectively treat Irritated Bowel Syndrome (IBS), I would suggest using a holistic approach.  Adopt a yeast-free nutritional program that contains no sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and chemicals.  The above no-no’s are “Dr. J’s Eight Commandments” as detailed in my cookbook, Healthy & Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking A yeast-free nutritional program will nourish your body and starve the yeasts and parasites –your little enemies within. 

Our Herbal Detox Program consisting of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea is highly effective in combatting IBS.  Yeast-Para Control will remove excess yeasts and parasites in your body, and allow your body’s innate intelligence to heal you.  Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to cleanse your liver and kidneys so that toxins will not build up in your body.  The function of Yeast-Para Control is like a scrub for the toilet, and that of Cleansing-Balance Tea is the flushing of the toilet.  You can also add Herbal Cocktail, a high-protein herbal drink, to nourish your body that is starving for nutrients.

On the psychological perspective, one should learn to effectively manage one’s stress.  In my book: Breaking the Yeast curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, one can learn valuable techniques such as 10-minute meditation, Emotional Releasing Technique, special prayers, and affirmations. 

I offer consultation on yeast-free nutrition, Chinese Herbal Detox, Hormonal Balance, and Weight Control on the phone or Skype.  For an appointment, please call 1-800-715-3053 or send an e-mail to drj@drjsbest.com.

Healthy regards,

Dr. J
