Q.  There is a lot of conflicting information on the Internet regarding Candida Cleansing Diet, what is your opinion on this?

A.  Indeed, it’s like a jungle out there in terms of information regarding the candida cleansing diet.   Oftentimes you are confused about what you can eat and what you should avoid when you try to heal yourself from candidiasis, or yeast and parasitic infections.

First of all, you need to understand that candida is a member of the yeast family.  Candida alone has 40 to 50 strains that are harmful to your health.  When yeasts are present, parasites also thrive.  I call them Siamese Twins.  Therefore, I would refer to yeast and parasite cleanse in this Q&A.

Also, the word “diet” seems to denote the meaning of being “limited” and “short term.”  Therefore, I prefer to call it an “Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program” because you can follow the nutritional principles for life to maintain optimal health.  The anti-yeast nutritional program I recommend contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeast, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals.   I developed these “Eight Commandments” after I conquered a severe case of yeast and parasitic infection, and remained symptom-free for several decades.

In my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking, you will find anti-yeast nutritional principles and recipes that nourish your body, but starve the yeasts and parasites.  The “Eight Commandments” detailed in my anti-yeast cookbook have stood the test of time.  My many clients and myself have been able to get well and stay well because of these anti-yeast nutritional principles.

When your immune system is strong, you can re-introduce food items that are on the no-no list if you go for moderation.   Occasionally, when I indulged on the no-no foods, I had to accept the consequences for it.  For example, if I had a small slice of ultra-sweet fruits such as watermelon, my body can handle it.  However, when I had a bigger slice, I would suffer from sugar headaches for a few days.  It becomes a matter of choice of what consequences you would accept when you deviate from my anti-yeast nutritional principles.

Also, please be aware that diet alone will not cure you when you suffer from chronic yeast and parasitic infections.  You do need to consider herbal therapy to eliminate excess yeasts and parasites quickly so that your body’s innate intelligence can be activated and healing can take place.  I formulated Yeast-Para Control to remove yeasts and parasites simultaneously.  Because yeasts and parasites go hand in hand, if you only treat yeast or only treat parasitic infection, sooner or later, both yeasts and parasites will come back together to “haunt” you.

I also formulated Cleansing-Balance Tea to flush the debris created by Yeast-Para Control.  It’s like this: Yeast-Para Control would scrub the toilet, and Cleansing-Balance Tea would flush the toilet.  When you combine these two formulas (Herbal Detox), together with the anti-yeast nutritional program, your body would begin to heal quickly.

As I stated in previous publications, yeasts and parasites are the “root of all evil” when health is concerned, and stress is the core of these roots.  Therefore, if you want to have long-lasting results, you must manage your stress effectively.  In my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are several techniques you can use to reduce your stress.  They include meditation, releasing deep-rooted negative emotions, prayers, and affirmations.  To start, you may go to our website: www.drjsbest.com to download a free 10-Minute Meditation Guide to reduce stress and increase your general wellbeing.

Q.         Why are some people more prone to candidiasis (yeast infections) than others?

A.         This is a good question!  Sometimes you feel “it’s not fair” that others are eating sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, and other yeast-favorite food, and yet they don’t have candidiasis.  On the contrary, you have to watch everything you eat, and yet, you still suffer from the symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections.

The answer is actually very simple.  The stress level everybody perceived in life determines your susceptibility to yeast and parasitic infections.  As I detailed in my book: Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, “so far as physical health is concerned, yeast and parasitic infections are the roots of all evil; and psychological stress is the core of these roots!”  Stress suppresses your immunity.  When your immunity is compromised, all kinds of microbial organisms such as yeasts, parasites, bacteria, and viruses can act up and create symptoms from head to toe.

An anti-yeast nutritional program is an important way to prevent new assault on your body.  However, the existing little enemies in your body require a vigorous holistic approach to make them surrender.  In addition to dietary change, stress management should be your top priority.

Meditation, prayers, affirmations, chanting, etc. all can help reduce your stress.  Go to my website: www.drjsbest.com to claim a FREE gift I have for you: 10-minute meditation.  Meditate daily, even several times a day, and you will experience more peace, harmony, health, and happiness.  If you need professional help, just call me at 818-472-2213 or 800-715-3053 for a consultation appointment.

If you are on budget, you can start with reading my books, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, and
.  I would also recommend our Herbal Detox program.  For less than $3 a day, you will be able to build up your immunity immediately and consistently.

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.

According to Wikipedia, the term underweight refers to a human who is considered to be under a healthy weight level. “Underweight” means weighing less than what is expected to be a healthy person. 

Over 66% of people in the U.S. are overweight.  Many people consider being underweight as a “lucky” situation. The fact of the matter is that an underweight condition could be a severe health issue.

Some examples of health issues associated with an underweight condition include: anemia, chronic fatigue, poor blood circulation, poor digestion and absorption, weak immunity, amenorrhea (absence of menstruation), infertility, complications during pregnancy, osteoporosis, etc.

In developed countries, the most common cause of being underweight is malnutrition, secondary to diseases such as cancer, hyperthyroidism, and yeast and parasitic infections.

After having dealt with underweight clients, both male and female, regardless of ethnicity, I have found the following holistic treatment to be very effective:

 

1.    Remove excessive yeast and parasites

I usually suggest a mega-dose of our Herbal Detox program (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) to remove the “unwanted tenants” — yeasts and parasites quickly.   It’s not unusual that my underweight clients take Cleansing-Balance Tea four capsules around the clock during the waking hours, and drink two pots of Cleansing-Balance Tea a day.  The end result?  They see a lot of yeast debris, parasite eggs (like seeds), and bodies of mature worms in the toilet, and they experience marked improvement in their health conditions.

2.    Concentrated Herbal Nutrition: Herbal Smoothie

The herbal smoothie I described in previous articles is great for underweight people to gain muscle weight (healthy weight).  My underweight clients usually have up to three servings a day.  The Herbal smoothie recipe consists of purified water, sugar-free soy milk/rice milk/almond milk/coconut milk, Herbal Cocktail, Yeast-Para Control, Female Vitality, or Male Vitality.

 

3.    Yeast-Free Nutrition

A yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no yeast, no wheat, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals starves yeasts and parasites and nourishes your body.  The more my underweight clients stick to this nutritional program, the faster they gain healthy weight.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

 

4.    Regular Exercise

Exercise improves healthy appetite, blood circulation, and oxygenation of body cells.  All of this helps underweight individuals gain muscle weight (healthy weight).  If the individual is too weak to engage in vigorous exercise, start with a few minutes of slow walking, and gradually increase to a higher capacity when body strength and stamina increase.

5.    Stress Management

People who are underweight tend to worry more than ordinary people do.  Stress management techniques such as meditation, prayers, affirmations, deep emotional releasing, writing letters to finish “unfinished business”, etc. have proven to be very effective in reducing anxiety and increasing relaxation.  For the details, read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing.

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.

Lyme disease is a health challenge in America and Europe.  It may be one of the most fastest growing epidemics in the world.   According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, “There is considerable underreporting of Lyme disease…. The actual infection rate may be 1.8 million, 10 times higher than the 180,000 cases currently reported.”

The major reason for under reporting of Lyme disease is the difficulty in diagnosing the disease.  In addition to the spirochete, the saliva of the ticks carries several microbial organisms that cause “co-infections.”  

Most laboratories like to present themselves as having reliable tests for Lyme disease, when in fact they often miss the diagnosis by misinterpreting the results.  Whether the diagnosis is accurate or not, health professionals need to pay special attention to the symptoms experienced by their patients.  As described in the previous article, symptoms experienced by each individual may vary.  The most common symptoms include bulls-eye skin rash, fever, fatigue, mind fog, swollen lymph glands, depression, shifting aches and pain, crawling sensation under the skin, etc.  All these symptoms mimic yeast and parasitic infections, fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and many others.

The most common treatment is taking many courses of strong antibiotics with the hope that all the infections would be cleared up quickly.  Unfortunately, most symptoms become chronic and recurrent, because antibiotics actually destroy the immunity and create more perpetual health problems due to yeast overgrowth.

 

In the next article, I will discuss the holistic treatment for this encroaching epidemic of Lyme disease.  Stay tuned!

What is Lyme Disease?

Lyme disease is caused by tick bites.  Deer ticks that carry Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria can spread the disease when they feed on the blood of animals and humans.  The size of ticks is usually likened to a poppy seed or sesame seed.

Lyme disease was named after a town called Lyme in Connecticut, because there were a number of cases reported in that town in 1975.

 

How do people get Lyme Disease?

Ticks that carry the disease thrive in heavily-wooded or grassy areas, including your backyard or the park.  If you live or spend time in those areas, there’s a higher likelihood you will get tick bites. 

Can you prevent Lyme Disease?

If you take commonsense precautions, you can reduce the likelihood of being bitten by infected ticks.  For example:  wear long socks, use insect-repellent, wear high boots, etc., when you are in a grassy or heavily-wooded environment.

What do I do if I find ticks on my skin?

Use a tweezer to carefully pull out the entire body of the tick.  Don’t use oil or cream to crush the tick body because that might cause the ticks to release the bacteria in your skin.

What are the symptoms of Lyme Disease?

The acute symptoms include bulls-eye skin rash, fever, fatigue, shifting aches and pain, depression, and swollen lymph glands which mimic many other diseases such as yeast and parasitic infections, fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. In many cases, there are no acute but chronic symptoms.

In the next articles, I will discuss diagnosis and treatment for Lyme disease.  Stay tuned.
