When Is the Best Time to Detox
By Dr. Juliet Tien (Dr. J), D.N. Sc.



When is the best time to detox?  The answer: anytime you feel toxic or poisoned. Many people have their cars serviced periodically, or their pets de-wormed regularly. However, they don’t take care of their bodies the same way they take of their cars or pets. If you are one of those people, read on. This article is written for you!

If you don’t make a habit of detoxifying your body regularly, the availability of and the indulgence in “holiday food” can poison your body more than usual. Most holiday “goodies” are loaded with sugar, dairy, wheat, and yeast. You know you are allergic to these ingredients. However, your will power gives in when all kinds of pies, cakes, and candy are readily available during the holidays. Unfortunately, the little enemies in your body — yeast and parasites — feed on these “yummy foods” and then have a rock ‘n roll party!  After their feast, they deposit toxic waste in your body. Therefore, you tend to experience more flus, colds or allergy symptoms during the holiday season.

After the holidays is a good time to detox! When you detoxify your body, you also need to detoxify your mind and spirit so that you may have long-lasting results. The following are a few simple steps for you to follow 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.

Step 2. Remove Toxins in Your Body
Step 1 will increase your awareness of the factors that cause your imbalance. By avoiding feeding yeast and parasites in your body with their favorite foods (including sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, 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 will need to consider removing existing toxins so your body has a chance to heal!

The two most important tasks involved in removing toxins from your body are: controlling overgrowth, and removing excess yeast and parasites.

Yeast and Parasite Control:
Yeast 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. The following are some evidence that you can expect to see.

Yeast Debris:
•     Cotton- or hair-like stuff floating in the urine.
•     Mucous in the urine or stool
•     Cloudy urine
•     Dark-colored urine with foul odor

Eggs of Parasites:
•     Sesame seed-like stuff in the stool
•     Sunflower seed-like stuff in the stool
•     Broken corn-like stuff in the stool
•     White or colored specks in the stool

•     Pin worms: Undigested fiber-like stuff sticking out from the stool, or tiny pin-like stuff floating in the toilet
•     Hook worms: Spaghetti-like stuff in the stool
•     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 yeast 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.  No wonder you are sick and tired of being sick and tired!

Cleansing the Debris and Toxins
When you take a good formula to remove excess yeasts and parasites from your body, the “civil war” begins immediately. 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 to defeat excess yeast and parasites is like scrubbing the toilet and using a cleansing formula is like flushing the toilet. You need to employ both in order to allow your body to have a clean slate to heal.

Step 3: Regenerate Your Glands and Organs
Regenerating your fatigued glands and organs is just like jump-starting the sluggish battery of your car. You need to take formulas that contain a combination of high quality and absorbable vitamins, minerals, and Chinese herbs that nourish your body and balance the hormonal system. Many of my female clients report that they experience marked improvement in mental clarity, energy, libido, menstrual regularity, and relief from hot flashes after taking the formula designed to regenerate the female hormonal system regularly for several months. In some cases, they were able to conceive and have a full-term pregnancy after several disappointing miscarriages.

How about men? Many wives or girlfriends of my male clients thank me because the intensity and joy of their love lives increase as a result of their male partners taking the formulas that increase vitality!  When the male hormonal system is regulated, you will also experience an uplift of your mood and an increase in your energy as well as mental clarity.

Step 4: Cleanse Your Mental Toxins
Your mind has a great capacity to create, invent, and carry out complicated tasks, when you make the best use of it. However, most of you only utilize less than 5% of your mental capacity, and the remaining 95% is left unused (or wasted, rather). Why? The answer is simple. You cloud your mind with “mental toxins”! What are mental toxins? Any thoughts or emotions that hold you back from being the best you can be.     

When you suffer a severe case of yeast and parasitic infection, not only is your body toxic, but also is your mind! Carrying negative emotions such as anger, resentment, regret, grief, fear, guilt, and uncertainty, 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! 

How do you uproot your mental toxins? Please be aware that traditional psychotherapy does not work when you are suffering from a stubborn case of yeast and parasitic infection. The focus of spiritual psychotherapy is to help you understand the concept of “universality” and reduce or eliminate your “Poor me! Why me?” syndrome. You will be guided to understand, accept, forgive, and release whatever life situation caused your emotional imbalance. As a result, you will learn how to draw on universal energy to handle life challenges and to heal yourself with ease, grace and perfection.

If you take all the steps described above, you will find that you are becoming a different person — a person who has control over his or her life, instead of being controlled by your life events, whatever they may be!
