Are You Suffering from the Yeast Curse? (Part 3)
By Dr. Juliet Tien (Dr. J), D. N. Sc.



This article has three parts. Part 1 addresses the symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections; Part 2 and Part 3 explain the physical, psychological and spiritual factors causing yeast and parasitic infection, and treatment of these ever rampant and confusing health issues.
(Continued from Part 2)

Environmental Factors:
Yeasts are everywhere. They are in the air you breathe, the water you drink, the carpet you sit on and the furniture you use. A study at Loma Linda University by Pope in 1991 indicates that cancer is linked with smog in southern California. Occasionally you may hear the weatherman say the air quality is poor and “the mold count” is high!  Not only will polluted air damage the function of your body’s sewage system, but yeasts in the air will also add to the growth of existing yeasts in your body.

A recent study revealed that drinking chlorinated water raises the chances of a person developing cancer by 4%. Chemicals in the water you drink can clog your liver and hamper your immune system. Chemical permanent-wave solutions, hair dyes, hair sprays, cosmetics, deodorants, etc. can clog or damage your skin or hair follicles.  

Cooking utensils made of aluminum can have a toxic effect on your body. An increasing volume of research indicates that aluminum from cooking utensils and medications (such as Amphogel) are associated with senile plaques in the brain of the elderly afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease. Dusty furniture or clutter creates a wonderful environment for yeasts to grow. Old books and newspapers are also covered with yeasts. A damp environment is also wonderful for yeast overgrowth. Soil is another rich place for yeasts to thrive.

Spiritual Factors:
This section is written for people who are open-minded and believe that everything can be possible in this universe. If you believe in karma or reincarnation, the following supposition will be easy for you to understand. If you don’t, then just remember: “Whatever goes around, comes around.” Through past-life ther-apy with countless clients in the past twelve years, I have discovered that people who suffer from yeast disorders are those who, once upon a time, abused or misused their power. This abuse or misuse of power may have taken place in this lifetime or in previous lives.

The experience of yeast disorders is designed by the universe to humble these people. The universe is giving people an opportunity to understand what it’s like to be on the other side of the hill — being powerless and out of control. After going through the devastating experience of yeast and parasitic infections — an experience of being controlled by tiny microbial organisms, hopefully these individuals will vow not to abuse or misuse their own body and mind, or that of others.

1Treatment for Yeast and Parasitic Infections
As outlined in my books, Breaking the Yeast Curse: Food and Unconditional Love for Magic Healing and Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking, the basic principle for controlling the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites is balancing your body, mind and spirit on a consistent basis. The following are guidelines for cleansing toxins physically, mentally and spiritually.

Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program:
Over the past few decades, I have guided many of my clients to follow Eight Commandments: no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeast, no alcohol, no caffeine, no nicotine, nor chemicals in order to control overgrowth of yeasts and parasites with great results. This anti-yeast nutritional program may sound radical in the beginning. However, most of my clients have found that it is actually simple. They also reported having cut their grocery bills by 30 to 50%! Most of all, they enjoy a better quality of life as evidenced by their mental clarity, energy, freedom from aches and pains, better overall physical function, and more positive outlook on life!

Chinese Herbal Therapy:
An anti-yeast nutritional program prevents you from generating new toxins in your body.  Chinese herbal therapy cleanses the existing toxins you have accumulated over the years. Since yeasts and parasites are like Siamese Twins, you need a well-put-together Chinese herbal formula that can control the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites simultaneously. When you are on potent yeast and parasite control formulas, you will see the evidence in the toilet almost immediately. I usually instruct my clients to do “toilet watching” with a flashlight or magnifying glasses to look for the following:

Debris of Yeasts:  
Cloudy or mucousy materials in the urine or stool. Some of my clients described them as “the Milky Way” or “clouds under the water.”

Eggs of Parasites:
They look like sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, undigested brown rice, or broken corn. You can see them in your stool or menstrual blood clots.

Mature Worms:
They come in various sizes, shapes and colors. Pinworms appear to be fibers sticking out of your stool. Hook worms look like spaghetti or string cheese. Flat worms look like broken tree leaves dancing in the toilet when you flush it. Some worms may come out of your ear, skin or mouth.
All of these sound gross. However, you should be very happy to see these creatures come out of, instead of stay in, your body!

Mental Cleansing:
I call yeast and parasitic infections “the roots of all evil” as far as health is concerned. However, mental toxins are the core of these roots! Cleansing mental toxins is like uprooting this core and requires a lot of “dirty work”. The fundamental principle for success in uprooting the core is “forgiveness.” Many people claim that they have forgiven those who have done them wrong. If you are still suffering from yeast and parasitic infection symptoms, you have not truly forgiven. Forgiveness means giving up your right to punish the wrong-doers and/or yourself! When you choose peace consciously, all the pent up     anger, resentment, regret, fear, guilt, and grief will dissipate. I know this is a tall order. However, in order for you to break the curse, you must replace negative emotions with peace and unconditional love!

Spiritual Balance:
Many people are unclear about or struggle with the purposes of their lives. Actually the purpose of life for any individual in any given life is very simple: correcting bad habits and reinforcing good habits; and helping others to do the same. Most human beings are ego-driven and thus perpetuate bad habits. People with stubborn yeast and parasitic infections tend to demonstrate these characteristics. The best way to let go of ego control is to get into a quiet space on a consistent basis and connect with the universal or God’s energy. Even ten minutes of meditation a day can enable you to be cognizant of your good and bad habits. Awareness of your habits is the beginning of atonement. When you are open to accept atonement, you will be like a magnet attracting love, health, resources and happiness effortlessly!

Breaking the yeast and parasitic curse is a life-long process. If you put in 50% of the effort, you will get 50% of the benefit. That is better than 0%! Don’t let the excuse of “either-or” stop you from making any effort. I have seen people waiting for the “perfect time” such as after the holidays or special occasions. However, the perfect time has not yet come and they are still suffering from yeast and parasitic infections year in and year out. A Chinese proverb says, “A one-thousand-mile journey begins with the first step.”  Once you take the first step, the subsequent steps become easier and easier!
