Posts Tagged ‘Yeast Overgrowth’

hurricane-sandy-oct-25As you all know, hurricane Sandy has brought much environmental destruction.   However, what you may not know is that Sandy also has caused many people to suffer from yeast and parasitic infections.

If you have read my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, you would discover that I was born during the “Typhoon” (hurricane) season, and that I was born with the “yeast curse.”

I have received several calls from clients living in the New York area after super storm Sandy.  They complained about fatigue, mind fog, digestive problems, allergies, depression, headaches, etc.  Most of them can trace back to the origin of these health issues:  The drinking water at home or the restaurants was contaminated with parasite giardia.  Yeasts were overgrown inside and outside their bodies.

They were so happy to get on our Herbal Detox program.

If you have any questions, please call me at my direct line (818) 472-2213.  We also offer 10% discount on our herbal products for all of you who were affected by the aftermath of Sandy.

In my previous two articles, I stressed that in order to reduce or eradicate the decomposing effects of the fungal spores, you need to clean both the external and internal environments.  In this article, I will focus on controlling the internal environment: Your body.

Fungal spores may enter the body through the air you breathe, the water you drink, the dust on your furniture, the food you eat, the fur from pets, etc.  The function of fungal spores is to decompose (ferment) the medium for food.  When your immune system is strong, you can co-exist with these transparent creatures.  When your immunity is weak, members of the fungal family such as yeasts and candida albicans may “occupy” your body causing you to suffer yeast overgrowth symptoms from head to toe such as headaches, mind fog, fatigue, depression, allergies, arthritis-like aches and pain, skin rash, fungal nails, etc.

The following are essential natural remedies to control yeast overgrowth in your body:

1.    Yeast Free Nutritional Program:

Sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine are favorite food for yeasts.  Eliminating this type of food from your diet can starve harmful yeasts and control their overgrowth.  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:

When your body suffers from a chronic case of yeast overgrowth (or candidiasis), you need strong herbal formulas to “clean house”.  Our Yeast-Para Control formula is designed to remove excess yeasts and parasites simultaneously since they go hand in hand like Siamese Twins.  Cleansing-Balance Tea is designed to flush the debris that Yeast-Para Control creates, and cleanse the liver and kidneys.  Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea form a strong herbal detox program to treat and prevent yeast overgrowth.

If symptoms of fatigue, mind fog, depression, and loss of sexual interest are present, Female Vitality or Male Vitality is essential to fight them.  Herbal Cocktail, a high-protein drink, is very beneficial to balance the weight problems (either over-weight or under-weight) due to yeast overgrowth.  It is also very effective in stopping sugar cravings.

3.    Physical exercise:

Since fungal spores thrive in still environments, you need to exercise daily to improve your blood circulation and energy flow and not to give them a chance to grow in your body.  I know the last thing you want to do is exercise when you feel fatigued.  Motivate yourself to start with some low-impact exercise such as slow walking or in-place jogging.  You may start with 10 minutes, and then gradually increase to 30 minutes, to an hour.

4.    Mental exercise

Stress is the main cause to lower your immunity and weaken your body’s defense.  Stress is a part of life.  You simply need to learn how to effectively manage stress.  In my book, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, there are many techniques such as releasing negative emotions, 10-minute meditation, writing letters in a proper format to finish “unfinished” business, prayers, affirmations, etc.  Practice these techniques daily, and make stress become a motivating factor for you to move forward!

Do you mind if I ask you a few very important questions?  Please be honest in answering them.  Just by answering these questions honestly can change the way you think and feel every day, for the rest of your life!

  • Do you feel that you are sluggish and not as productive as you want to be?

 

  • Are you frustrated because your body’s stamina does not support what your mind wants to do?

 

  • Does your body act old and feel old despite its age?

 

  • Is your mind foggy and are you unable to concentrate?

 

  • Do you feel that you have a lot of potential and yet are an under-achiever?

 

  • Do you wonder where you should go from here (in your life)?

If so, you need to detoxify and regenerate your body, mind and spirit.  The following are a few simple steps for you to achieve ultimate physical, mental and spiritual fitness.

Step 1:  Educate Yourself

Knowledge is power.  Ignorance leads to confusion and inaction!  Understanding is the key to all solutions!  In my books, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing, and Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking, I provide you with detailed information to help you understand why you are suffering from physical, emotional, and spiritual imbalance, and show you how you can establish or restore balance.  For those of you who are suffering from the symptoms mentioned above, these two books are must-reads.  You can check them out from your local public library.  Alternatively, you can order e-books from our website: www.drjsbest.com.

 

Step 2.  Remove Toxins from Your Body

Step 1 is to get yourself educated, so that you are aware of the factors causing your imbalance.  By following the yeast-free nutritional program and avoiding feeding yeasts and parasites with their favorite food (including sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, alcohol, nicotine and chemicals), you will be able to put healthy and nourishing food in your body and prevent your body from further abuse or misuse.  However, if the abuse or misuse has been going on for many years, you need to consider removing the existing toxins so that your body has a chance to heal!

 

The two most important tasks in removing the toxins from your body are controlling the overgrowth, then removing, excess yeasts and parasites.

 

Yeast and Parasite Control:

Yeasts and parasites are like “Siamese Twins”.  They go hand in hand.  Therefore, you need to use a formula that removes yeasts and parasites from your body simultaneously and very quickly.  A good formula will enable you to see the evidence in your toilet almost instantly.  Our Yeast-Para Control is designed for this purpose.

The following are some evidence that you can expect to see when you take Yeast-Para Control :

 

Yeast Debris:

ü  Cotton- or hair-like stuff floating in the urine.

ü  Mucous in the urine or stool

ü  Cloudy urine

ü  Dark-colored urine with foul odor

 

Eggs of Parasites:

ü  Sesame seed-like stuff in the stool

ü  Sunflower seed-like stuff in the stool

ü  Broken corn-like stuff in the stool

ü  White or colored specks in the stool

 

Worms:

ü  Pin worms: Undigested fiber-like stuff sticking out from the stool, or tiny pin-like stuff floating in the toilet

ü  Hook worms: Spaghetti-like stuff in the stool

ü  Flat worms: Dark green colored, broken tree leaf-like stuff dancing in the water when the toilet is flushed

There are more than 250,000 species of yeasts and parasites.  I cannot describe them all.  The above are most commonly seen among people in North America.  In other words, you have been feeding an “extended family” involuntarily. Not only do these enemies within (yeasts and parasites) suck your energy, they also deposit toxins after they have a rock ‘n roll party in your body.  That’s why you often feel fatigued and suffer allergic reactions.

 

Cleansing the Debris and Toxins

When you take a good formula to remove excess yeast and parasites in your body, the “civil war” begins immediately.  Quickly, you will see the defeated bodies of yeast and parasites on the battlefield — your body.  Therefore, you need to take formulas designed to flush the debris and toxins.  Using a potent formula (Yeast-Para Control) to defeat and remove excess yeasts and parasites is like scrubbing the toilet; and using a cleansing formula (Cleansing-Balance Tea) is like flushing the toilet.   You need to employ both in order to allow your body to have a clean slate to heal.

If you are plagued with the symptoms that I listed in the beginning of this article, you’ll need to continue with this Herbal Detox program on recommended full dosage until you are symptom free;  then stay on maintenance dosage for prevention. The general rule is that for one year of illness, it takes at least one month to heal, provided that you are doing everything right to restore the balance of your body, mind, and spirit.

 

In the next article I will discuss Step 3: regenerate your glands and organs and Step 4: cleanse your mental toxins.   Stay tuned.

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.

After working with children and adults with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) for the past three decades, I have found the most common physical factor, 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, sense 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 about and what causes it.  In my experience, this inner-ear infection is a 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.

The goal of successful treatment should be to clear yeast infections from the inner-ear.  Our Herbal Detox (Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea) works wonders to control the yeast overgrowth in the inner-ear.  Meanwhile, Male Vitality or Female Vitality improves mental concentration, uplifts the mood, and increases calm energy.

In addition to herbal therapy to eradicate the physical causes, it’s also important to adhere to a yeast-free nutritional program containing no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals.  It may be difficult to stay off the Standard American Diet which is loaded with yeast-favorite food.  So, the first item I place heavy emphasis on is NO SUGAR!  Sugar feeds the yeasts instantly, and the overgrowth of yeasts in the inner-ear causes children (or adults) to lose control physically and mentally.  To learn what to eat and what to avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook, Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking.

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!

Premenstrual Syndrome is a cluster of symptoms experienced by women about seven to ten days before their period.  These symptoms include: headaches, poor mental concentration, mood swings, depression, anxiety, irritability, crying spells, bloatedness, breast tenderness, fatigue, sugar cravings, water retention, muscle aches in the lower extremities, pelvic discomfort or pain, insomnia, skin breakout, weight gain and loss of sexual desire.

From puberty to menopause, every woman experiences premenstrual syndrome at one time or another, to a lesser or greater degree.  About 40% of women experience noticeable and consistent symptoms.  Some are so severe that every month they are paralyzed by pain and emotional disturbance.

Premenstrual syndrome can also affect relationships.  One time a husband brought in his wife to me and said, “You fix my wife. Otherwise, either she will kill me, or I will kill her!”  The wife nodded her head and agreed. 

Causes of PMS: 

During the premenstrual period, there are biochemical changes in a woman’s body.  Hormones such as prostaglandin, estrogen, progesterone and prolactin escalate.  These hormones increase the blood volume.  Consequently, symptoms of water retention, bloatedness, weight gain, sugar cravings and mood swings follow. 

Why sugar cravings?  When blood volume increases, the amount of blood sugar also increases.  Remember, your little friends, yeasts, are always waiting for an opportunity to have a party.  The increased amount of blood sugar is just what they need!

After they are well fed with sugar, they want more!  They cry out, “Feed me!  Feed me!”  If you don’t understand what is going on, and feed them with more sugar or chocolate, then you become the victim of a losing battle!  Yeast overgrowth symptoms will thus take a toll on you.

What are the causes of all these hormonal changes?  Why is it that some women are debilitated every month, but others don’t even know they’ve got their periods until their panties are stained?  It is the same old story: malnutrition and long term physical and emotional stress. In the next few articles I will address the treatment of this debilitating health condition.  Stay tuned.
