Are You Suffering from Yeast and Parasitic Infections?

(Part 1)

By Dr. Juliet Tien (Dr. J), D. N. Sc.


Shortly after a group of anthropologists discovered King Tut’s tomb in Egypt, they became very ill. It was said that they were cursed because they violated King Tut’s will: to remain in the tomb for eternity without being disturbed. I would say these anthropologists suffered from the “yeast curse,” because they inhaled a large amount of yeast when they worked in a tomb where walls were covered by layers of green, pink, and yellow mildew.

According to a Chinese belief, if a child is difficult to raise, he or she had been cursed. To break the curse, the child should be adopted by a Chinese doctor. Since I was sickly from the time I was born, I was adopted by a Chinese doctor and raised on herbs. When I look back, I realize that I had been born with the “yeast curse” and the experience with the herbal therapy has paved a foundation for me to formulate “Seven Herbal Wonders” to relieve people’s suffering from yeast and parasitic infections.

Symptoms of “Yeast Curse”

Whether you are suffering from an ancient Egyptian curse or a contemporary Chinese curse, the symptoms of yeast infections are basically the same. Yeast disorders are not the only threat we are faced with. Parasites and yeast are like Siamese Twins. They go hand in hand. All human beings and their pets suffer from yeast and parasitic infections at one time or the other, to a lesser or greater degree. Also, regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, and geographical locations, we all have “equal opportunity “to be infected!

Physical symptoms of yeast and parasitic infections can be manifested from head to toe. They include allergies, sinus or migraine headaches, mid-ear infections, eyelid swelling and itching, sore throats, mouth thrush, asthma, bloating, constipation, diarrhea, low immunity, cold hands and feet, varicose veins, impotence, vaginal or prostate infections, painful intercourse, endometriosis, menstrual irregularity, kidney or bladder infections, hemorrhoids, anal itch, burning during urination, hypothyroidism (Hashimoto Syndrome) hypoglycemia, diabetic neuropathy, acne, eczema, psoriasis, scaling skin lesions, athlete’s foot, cellulite, and hair loss. The list goes on.

In addition to physical symptoms, the following mental/psychological symptoms can also be present: poor mental concentration, foggy mind, depression, mood swings, phobia, anxiety attacks, irritability, negativity, lack of motivation, and insomnia.

What Are Yeast and Parasites?

Fungi have an extended family. Yeast belongs to the fungus family that consists of at least 100,000 to 250,000 species. They include yeast, mold, mildew, rots, smuts and mushrooms. The function of yeast is to break down dead bodies  so organic matter can be turned into its basic elements of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon and phosphorus. We need yeast to assist in ecological recycling. However, an overgrowth of yeast can also break down living organisms. There are at least 20 to 30 different types of pathogenic yeast that cause illnesses. Candida is one member of the yeast family. Candida albicans alone has 50 to 60 different strains that cause infections. Because yeast normally live on mucous membranes, contemporary laboratory tests such as blood tests, x-rays or stool cultures usually cannot detect their presence. Observation of the eyes, skin and tongue and knowledge of a detailed health history are the best ways to determine whether an individual is suffering from yeast disorders.

Parasites such as roundworms, hookworms, flatworms, tape worms, etc. rely on a host to survive and thrive. The fermentation of yeast creates a chemical substance called propyl alcohol that allows parasites to thrive. To return the favor, parasites use their bodies as platforms for yeasts to populate.

What Causes Yeast and Parasitic Infections?

Poor eating habits (Standard American Diet) loaded with sugar, dairy, wheat, yeasts, caffeine, alcohol, and chemicals, excessive use of antibiotics, a lack of exercise that leads to poor circulation, and pre-existing illnesses such as cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, diabetes, poor thyroid function, alcoholism, a toxic environment, and chronic or acute psychological stress, all can contribute to severe yeast and parasitic infections.

Illnesses Associated with Yeast and Parasitic Infections:

The above list of pre-existing illnesses can actually be caused by yeast and parasitic infections. The illness processes inevitably weaken the immunity and allow the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites. Thus the vicious circle ensues.

In the next article, I will address the holistic treatment for yeast and parasitic infections. Once the overgrowth of yeasts and parasites is controlled, the symptoms of their related illnesses can also reduce or dissipate. Stay tuned.
