Many people tend to catch seasonal flu and colds during the Thanksgiving holiday.  You can prevent this by adopting a healthy lifestyle before, during, and after this major holiday of the year.  The following are some recommendations:

1.    Avoid Overeating

One of the most common “misconducts” during the Thanksgiving holiday is overeating.  Abundance of food is very tempting.  Just remember the discomfort of overstuffing your stomach and go for moderation.  You can taste the food, instead of devouring a large amount of it.  Otherwise, when your stomach is full, you become sleepy and cannot enjoy the true spirit of Thanksgiving with your friends or relatives.

 2.    Stay on Yeast-Free Nutritional Program

Do your best to stick to the yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeast, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  I know you would be considered a “saint” if you could do this on the Thanksgiving holiday.  However, for your health and comfort, it’s worth making the effort.   To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

3.    Keep a Healthy Lifestyle Routine

Many people use the holiday as an excuse to interrupt their health routine especially regular exercise, meditation, etc.  The end result is that you may experience imbalance in your body, mind, and spirit.  Once the imbalance occurs, it may take a while to regain the balance.  If you could maintain your healthy life style routine, chances are you will have stronger immunity to protect yourself from seasonal flu and colds.

4.    Strengthen Your Immunity

Holiday activities can put more strain on your body.  My clients have reported that increasing the dosage of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea is very helpful in maintaining their immunity against the holiday stress.  Female Vitality or Male Vitality, and Herbal Cocktail are additional boosts for calm energy, mental clarity, and improvement of digestive function.

5.    Make It a True Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving holiday is not all that rosy for everyone.  If you have “unfinished business” with your family members, getting together on the Thanksgiving holiday can be an awkward time.   Why not use Thanksgiving Day as a special day to forgive and extend your genuine love?  There is always a silver lining in every life event.  There is always something to be thankful for with any one you encounter.  Give thanks to your “teachers”, both positive and negative.

If you could follow the above principles, you will enjoy a true Thanksgiving holiday!

In order to correct weight problems, you need to learn to nourish your body and mind on a regular basis.  Staying trim is a lifelong project.  No crash diets, injections, medications, or surgeries can achieve this purpose.  The following natural remedies have been time-tested by many of my clients as the most cost-effective for healthy and safe weight loss:

Yeast-Free Nutritional Program:

The first step is to wean yourself from foods containing sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and chemicals.  Stop ingesting poisonous or allergy-inducing foods into your body.  Give your thyroid a chance to rest and regenerate.  Allow your body to avoid the assault of wrong foods, and instead be nourished by nutrients from the right kind of foods.  If you would like to learn more about what to eat and what to avoid, follow the recipes in my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

Chinese Herbal Therapy:

For those of you who have a long history of being overweight, you need to consider herbal formulas specifically designed for weight control as an additional measure.  A yeast-free nutritional program gives your body a new start; while an herbal program removes the existing toxins in your body and revitalizes your sluggish metabolism.  A well-formulated herbal program for weight loss should have the following three functions:

1.  Control Your Appetite:

Most Americans overeat.  When I travelled in Europe, I noticed that my American friends were often surprised by the relatively smaller portions of food they received in European restaurants.  A traditional Chinese belief is that you should not eat more than a handful of food for each meal.  For those of you who love to eat, you probably wish you had a larger hand now (smile)!  Even though some of you are well aware of what you should and shouldn’t eat, when an abundance of no-no food is available, your will power often gives in.  Luckily, a well-put-together herbal formula can curb your appetite naturally without much effort on your part!

Our Herbal Cocktail was specifically designed for this purpose.  The high protein herbal drink contains multigrains and powerful digestive enzymes.  This product curbs your appetitte, stops sugar craving, and nourishes your body.  A scoup of this powder in a cup of Cleansing-Balance Tea or made into an herbal smoothie can carry you over for about two hours if you are too busy to have a regular meal.  It has been considered a life-saver by my busy clients.

For those peope who fast periodically, they found that the combination of our Cleansing-Balance Tea and Herbal Cocktail is very nourishing during the fast.

2.  Block Fat from Forming Fatty Tissues.

As mentioned previously, the Standard American Diet (SAD) usually contains 40 to 60% fat in a given meal (A cheeseburger is a good example.)  If you wish to reduce weight, you need to learn to eat sensibly and avoid foods containing a high amount of fat.  However, as a human being, sometimes you deviate knowingly or unknowingly.  A good herbal formula for weight control will also eliminate a good portion of the fat you put in your body.  In other words, before the newly ingested fats have a chance to be stored in your body, these herbal formulas will be able to expel them provided that you are not overloading your body with fatty foods all the time.

Our Fitness Regular is designed as a fat blocker.  Over the past 15 years, our clients have also reported side benefits such as the balancing of their blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol.

3.  Burn the Existing Fat in Your Body and Turn It Into Energy:

In addition to preventing new fats from being stored in your body, the third function of an effective herbal weight control formula is to burn the existing fat in your system and turn it into useful energy.  As a result, you will feel energetic, mentally clear and productive.

As described in previous articles, you might go through a period of cleansing crisis if you have many toxins accumulated in your system.  Before your body can function at its optimal level, it has to clean house!  Drink a lot of water or our caffeine-free Cleansing-Balance Tea to flush the debris.  In this way, the cleansing and purging processes can be facilitated.  Our Fitness Plus is desgned as a fat burner. It contains strong Chinese herbal ingredients to burn the fat that has been stored in your body.  I have also included a good amount of Acai berries to facilitate cleansing.


All of our products contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no corn, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, nor chemicals.  Only the finest natural ingredients are used in our formulation.  The end result:  steady and safe weight loss of two to three pounds per week.  The good news is that as long as you follow the guidelines for a healthy lifestyle, you won’t experience weight yo-yo’s that go hand in hand with fad diets.

In the next article, I will discuss how you can manage your stress effectively, how to restore your spiritual balance, and how to exrcise effortlessly without going to the gym.

Stay tuned!

Q.        I had radiotherapy for my throat cancer.  The treatment burned my throat and I have difficulty swallowing.  I am hungry and thirsty.  I feel very weak.  What would you recommend?  I am residing outside of the U. S., how can I get your products and services?

A.        Obviously you are malnourished and dehydrated.  The most important thing now is to get some nutrients and liquid in your body.  Since you have difficulty swallowing solid foods, I would suggest that you drink our herbal smoothie at least three times a day. 

****************************************************************************************************

Here is the recipe:

1 cup of rice milk, or soy milk or almond milk

1 cup of purified water

1 scoop of Herbal Cocktail (powder)

2 capsules of Yeast-Para Control (break the capsules, just use the powder content)

2 capsules of Female Vitality (break the capsules, just use the powder content)

1 ripe banana (skin peeled, sliced)

Put the mixture in the blender on high speed for 10 seconds.

**********************************************************************************************

I created this herbal smoothie recipe for children or adults who could not swallow capsules.  This recipe has been experimented and perfected to make it delicious without the “herby taste”.  This herbal smoothie will be ideal for you to nourish and hydrate your body; therefore, you can rebuild your strength and immunity.

For meals, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking  to make brown rice gruel (porridges) and different variety of soups.

From the psychological perspective, any cancer involving the throat area usually  symbolizes that you have suppressed anger and have not expressed your anger verbally.  Follow the guidelines in my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, to write letters to release the negative emotions in a proper way so that you can finish some “unfinished business.”

My books are available in hard copy or e-books.  We ship our herbal products and books worldwide.  You can place your order online: www.drjsbest.com, or call me at (818) 472-2213, or send me an e-mail at drj@drjsbest.com.  Consultation on the phone or over Skype is also available.  My Skype name: academyofvibranthealth.

Q.        Can Low Carbohydrate High Fat (LCHF) diet help control yeast overgrowth?

A.        Low Carbohydrate High Fat diet was popular at one time for weight loss.  However, there were some reports of ketosis.  Ketosis is caused by a lack of carbohydrates and can lead to liver and kidney damage.  Half of a 1,800 calorie diet comes from red meats and cheeses.  Our yeast free nutritional program contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no alcohol, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  My clients call it “Dr. J’s Eight commandments.”  Cheese (dairy) is a no-no item on my list.  I also warn people about red meats because they can carry very tough parasites such as tape worms.

To maintain a healthy balance, our body needs complex carbohydrates, high quality protein, and good fat.  If you follow the guidelines in my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking, you will have a proper balance of nutrients and lose excess weight.  Most of the recipes are vegetarian.  If you prefer animal protein, I recommend a moderate amount of well-cooked chicken or fish.

Our yeast-free nutritional program contains no refined sugar (simple carbohydrates).  It contains a moderate amount of complex carbohydrates needed to fuel to your body.  A typical day’s menu contains approximately 1,400 calories.  You will lose weight, starve yeasts and parasites, and nourish your body at the same time.

Both hard copies and e-books of my yeast-free cookbooks are available.  Visit our website at www.drjsbest.com to order online.  For those who reside outside the U.S., some ingredients in my cookbook may not be available in your part of the world.  You can create your own recipes based on the cooking principles I suggest in the cookbook.  You are also welcome to post questions on my facebook fan page.

 

For consultation on yeast-free nutrition, herbal detox, hormonal imbalance, weight control, stress management, and spiritual counseling, please call us at (800) 715-3053, or (818) 472-2213, or send an e-mail to drj@drjsbest.com.  Consultation sessions over Skype or the telephone are available.  For more information, visit our website: www.drjsbest.com.

As explained previously, the major causes for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) include psychological, dietary and yeast-related factors.  Therefore, only a holistic treatment regimen will yield long-lasting results.  Based on my clients’ responses, the following have been the most effective self-administered treatment methods.

 

Boosting Energy:         

            The most important first step is to boost energy level so that you can perform basic activities in your life.  A yeast-free nutritional program is essential to nourish your body with the right kind of food.  At the same time, you would starve the yeasts and parasites which have been partially responsible for the debilitating condition of CFS.  A yeast-free nutritional program will control the fermentation and destruction of your cells and tissues.  This, in turn, will improve your body’s ability to absorb and utilize essential nutrients.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

The use of herbal formulas to remove toxins and boost your energy by nourishing the glands and organs such as the thyroid, liver, kidneys and pancreas can be very fruitful. 

Our Herbal Detoxprogram (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) works wonders to remove excess yeasts and parasites and activate the innate intelligence of your body for healing.  Female Vitality or Male Vitality is very effective to regenerate your hormonal system, boost your energy, and uplift your mood.  Herbal Cocktailmixed with Cleansing-Balance Teaor made into a delicious smoothie nourishes your body and starves your little enemies: yeasts and parasites.

 

Exercise: 

People with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome can easly sleep 10 to 16 hours a day and still feel fatigued.  Exercise would be the last thing they want to do.  Remember, yeasts love a still environment that has no air.  When your body is immobile, your blood circulation is poor and your oxygen supply is insufficient.  This creates an excellent incubator for yeasts and parasites to overgrow! 

 

Force yourself to start with five minutes of slow walking around the house or around the block.  Slowly increase to 30 minutes a day.   You will find that you are invigorated after each slow walk.  You will have better results if you walk outdoors. 

During the recuperating period, there is one danger to keep in mind.  A few days to a few weeks after you get on the right track, you may begin to experience surges of energy.  This is an exciting feeling!  This excitement often leads you to overdo it again!   

Ellen is a good example:

 

            After suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for several years, Ellen was so excited about her “new found energy.”  Three weeks into our holistic treatment, she woke up one morning with a surge of energy.  She quickly resumed the activity level she used to have before the onset of Chronic Fatigue  Syndrome.   She cleaned the house, did the laundry and grocery shopping, and then went to the gym.  While she was working out in the gym, she collapsed and fell on her face!   

          

            Remember the principle of healing?  For one year of illness, it takes at least one month to heal.  Allow your energy reserve to build up.  Don’t exhaust your reservor too quickly.

   

            Slow walking is recommended for the first three to six months during the recovery period.  After that, any vigorous exercise should be introduced slowly, based on your body’s ability to handle it.

 

 

Re-Establishing Self-Image:           

            The onset of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is coupled with the loss of self.  Seek proper professional help to reestablish a sense of self.  Many caretakers give their care or love to make themselves feel important and thus feel loved or respected.  In order to be loved and respected by others, you must love and respect yourself first.  See yourself as the most important human being on Earth.  Exercise the art of selfishness.   Learn to take care of yourself first before you take care of others.   

            Practice self-love and self-respect.  Write a brief note or buy a card to praise yourself whenever you accomplish something.   Take yourself to a movie or a shopping trip if you feel a little down.  Develop a support system with which you can share your joys and agonies.  Being a “lone ranger” can be very fatiguing. 

            Allow yourself to receive love and care.  Every so often revert to the child stage to ask for love and attention.  If you don’t know how, just observe young children.  They will show you how you can ask for love and attention without allowing your ego or pride get in the way.

           

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome comes from chronic neglect of yourself emotionally and physically.  No doctors out there can cure you but yourself.  A Chinese proverb says, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.” Take your first step, no matter how hard it is.  Each following step will become easier and easier.  Sooner or later, you will step out of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome!

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!
