Most available literature would mention lightly that “early diagnosis” and “proper amount of antibiotics” would “cure” Lyme disease.  However, I have found that many Lyme disease diagnostic tests are unreliable. Many patients were not given the diagnosis of Lyme disease by their physicians until after they had suffered a cluster of symptoms for years.  It was only after their disease developed into a stage III (chronic) Lyme disease that people would take notice.

In my more than 30 years of clinical practice, I have not come across any Lyme disease clients that have been “cured by antibiotics.”  They might experience temporary relief of symptoms; however, when their life is stressful, the symptoms would return.  Worse yet, those who have been treated with many courses, or multiple brands and strains of antibiotics for a long period of time, tend to develop a severe case of yeast overgrowth.  That’s the major reason why people with Lyme disease also have candidiasis or other yeast and parasitic infection symptoms.

As long as you keep the immunity strong, you can co-exist with all kinds of microbial organisms in harmony.  Unfortunately, I have found most people with Lyme disease had a “go-go-go” personality.  Physically speaking, they exhaust their energy reserve by overdoing things.  Emotionally speaking, they stressed themselves out by creating constant time-pressured life events.  Spiritually speaking, the universe gives them an opportunity to be humbled, rest and takes good care of their bodies.

Based on the above understanding, my holistic approach is to help my clients with Lyme disease gain a physical, emotional and spiritual balance.  The following are guidelines for holistic treatment:

 

Physical Balance:

In order to strengthen the immunity, it’s important to be on a yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, nor chemicals.  Smokers were also guided to stop smoking, because the above no-no’s and nicotine feed yeasts and parasites.  As mentioned previously, yeast and parasitic infections go hand in hand with Lyme disease because of the liberal use of antibiotics.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, so that you can nourish your body, and starve your little enemies within, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Because the common symptoms of Lyme disease include fatigue, mind fog, swollen glands, and shifting aches and pain (which mimic Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia) herbal therapy is also important to eliminate or reduce these symptoms.  The combination of Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) and Hormonal Regeneration (Female Vitality or Male Vitality) programs works to increase energy, clear mind fog, stop inflammation, and eliminate aches and pain.  No two individuals have the same symptoms.  Therefore, some individuals may need Herbal Cocktailf or bloating and sugar craving as well.

Exercise is of ultimate importance for people with Lyme disease.  Exercise improves blood circulation and generates endorphins; this in turn, helps reduce or eliminate aches and pain.  When you are fatigued, the last thing you want to do is exercise.  Just start with slow walking for 10 minutes around the block, then gradually increase the amount of time and vigor when your body becomes stronger.

 

Emotional Balance:

The precursor of Lyme disease is usually an overactive, stressful lifestyle.  Meditation, prayers, deep emotional releasing technique, etc. are very useful self-administered stress management techniques.  Stress is a part of life.  If managed properly, stress can motivate you to move forward. 

Carrying negative emotions such as anger, resentment, fear, regret, and guilt is like driving a car with the hand break on.  It causes wear and tear on your immunity.   Therefore, it’s important to clear the “unfinished” business.

In my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are detailed instructions of these stress management techniques.  Use them, and you will have an easier and more enjoyable life! 

 

Spiritual Balance:

Some people felt false relief when they received a diagnosis of Lyme disease from their physicians.  Antibiotics are considered “magic bullets” in western medical establishments.  Through their continued suffering, patients realize this is not true.  If you are spiritual, you might wonder why your life is ruined by such tiny creatures like ticks (only the size of poppy or sesame seeds). This is a way designed by the universe to humble you and “encourage” you to take good care of yourself.  Your body is a temporary home for your soul.  However, in order to have a smoother spiritual journey, you still need to take good care of this temporary home.

There is also a possibility that you have abused or misused your power to control people.  Therefore, you are given an “opportunity” to learn how it’s like to be controlled by tiny creatures like ticks.  If you apologize to the universe for this possibility and vow that you will never make the same mistake again, you might feel peace and harmony with the universe and with yourself.

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 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,

Yeasts are everywhere.  They are in the air we breath, the water we drink, on the furniture we touch, on the ground or grass we walk on, on the skin that gets infected, on the pet’s fur, etc.  When the immune system is strong, the body can co-exist with yeasts, just like a good police force can keep a good social order.  When the police force (the immune system) is weak, then chaos will be the result.

Indulgence in yeast favorite food (Standard American Diet – SAD) that contains sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, cafeine, nicotin, and chemicals, excessive use of antibiotics, lack of exercise, pre-existing illnesses, poor hygene, sexual contact, and psychological stress, can cause the breakdown of the immune system and the thriving of yeasts.

Psychological stress is the primary cause for yeast disorders.  Unfinished business, boredom and “Busy-Taking-Care-of-Others Syndrome” are common causes for chronic psychological stress.

The most effective way for treating yeast infections or candidiasis is using a holistic approach including yeast-free nutrition, herbal therapy, stress management, and spiritual counseling.   For more information, visit www.drjsbest.com.  I also provide consultation via telephone or Skype.  For appointment, call (800) 715-3053 or e-mail: drj@drjsbest.com.

Healthy regards,
