Post-Holiday Detox
By Dr. Juliet Tien (Dr. J), D.N. Sc.


• Are you feeling sluggish after the holidays?
• Are your allergy symptoms flaring up because of too much “holiday food”?
• Are you frustrated because your body’s stamina does not support your New Year’s Resolutions?
• Do you feel that you have a lot of potential and yet are an under-achiever?

Most of the holiday “goodies” are loaded with sugar, dairy, wheat, and yeast. 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 allergy symptoms right after the holiday season.
So, it’s 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 achieve ultimate physical, mental and spiritual fitness.

Step 1: Educate Yourself
Knowledge is power. Ignorance is your worst enemy! In my books, Breaking the yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing and Healthy & 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
By avoiding the feeding of yeast and parasites in your body with their favorite foods (including sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast, alcohol), you will be able to prevent your body from further abuse. However, if the abuse has been going on for many years, you will need to consider removing existing toxins so your body has a better chance to heal!

Removing Excess Yeast and Parasites:
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. 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 in the Urine:
• Cotton- or hair-like stuff.
• Mucous.
• Cloudy.
• Dark-colored with foul odor.

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

Worms 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.
• Flat worms: Dark green colored, broken tree leaf-like stuff dancing in the water when flushing the toilet.
There are more than 250,000 species of yeast and parasites. I can’t describe them all. The above are most commonly seen in people in North America.

Cleansing the Debris and Toxins
When you take a good formula to remove excess yeasts and parasites from your body, the “civil war” begins. 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 regularly 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.

For female, you may experience marked improvement in mental clarity, energy, libido, menstrual regularity, and relief from hot flashes. How about men? When the male hormonal system is regulated, you will experience an uplift of your mood and an increase in your energy, mental clarity, and productivity.

Step 4: Cleanse Your 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. It also prohibits you from being creative and productive.

How do you uproot your mental toxins? Traditional psychotherapy does not work if you are suffering from a stubborn case of yeast and parasitic infection. The focus of spiritual psychotherapy is to help you understand, accept, forgive, and release whatever life situations causing your emotional imbalance. As a result, you will learn how to draw on universal energy to handle life challenges and heal yourself with ease, grace and perfection.

If you take all of the steps described above, you will be able to remove physical, mental and spiritual toxins at any time of the year, especially after holidays!
