    Q: I was most impressed by your website. The information to support your products and your obvious interest in informing the public caught and kept my attention. As I searched further into Black Seed Tea, the reason for my visit, I noticed your product ALCOHOL BUSTER. The comment of "on the metaphysical level, alcohol consumption also impairs the human aura" although very non clinical, is very much my way of thinking, it got my attention. I read as far as the disclaimer, "the formula does not have the power to prevent consumption of alcohol as only will power and a made up mind can do this." Here's where I step out of character and find myself writing this e-mail. It has been my experience while working with people from all walks of life, who are members of any 12 step program, that a reference to will power as a prevention of anything is a two edged sword. While I agree will power is important in abstention, I believe the person is benefited by using their personal will power to seek help, to commit to recovery, to take care of the physical, mental and emotional bodies. I don't believe "human" will power is the power that prevents consumption. The suggestion that "will power and a made up mind can prevent consumption of alcohol" to a person with an addiction could become a deadly idea. This of course is my opinion, do with it what you feel is appropriate.

    A:

    I feel you in where you're coming from, but I truly believe and know human willpower plays a role in prevention and healing of all disease. The strongest thing humans have is a will. Will meshes with desire in many cases. Both are strong in humans. Now, you're dealing with a person with addiction in regards to your last statement and I can totally understand where you are coming from but the sick person is not exempt from any laws of healing. There is no real or true healing absent willpower to do a thing, a beneficial thing. The addicted person must be first dealt with on the physical and psychological levels and then the spiritual and energetic (getting to the root of the addiction: perhaps a 2nd chakra problem or something hanging over from a past life). All addiction points to spiritual void and therefore the only ultimate healing here is mental or spiritual via mental. As you know, it's mind-body-spirit and all must be dealt with for healing. Will is important in abstention but we don't won't people to focus on abstaining which is usually converted into "can't have" by the addicted person. We want people to only focus on the good, the healthy, what they need and require, not what they don't want or can't have because their subconscious mind will create the situations and circumstances by which these people end up consuming the thing that is insalubrious for them. It never fails. I grew up with an alcoholic mother and plenty of other alcoholics. We want people to have and use willpower to GO FOR the best things for them, will in DOING the right and healthy things for themselves. All healing is ultimately within self. As a man thicket so is he! Peace be unto you fellow metaphysician!

    Q: I'm a 21 year old male suffering from testicular disorder and from partial impotence (Takes longer than 5 minutes without porn to get hard and no morning erections). Here are my questions. 1. How long would it take for the Male Hormonal Formula (which I just purchased a few days ago) before I notice any results? Just curious. 2. Can take the three daily pills all at once, one before each meal (breakfast, lunch dinner), or what? 3. How much water should I drink with this and can other drinks like tea and juice act as a substitute for just plain water?

    A:

    How fast you see results with the Male Hormonal Formula all depends on how much your body needs to cleanse before it returns to optimal function!

    You can take all 3 capsules at once.

    You can drink water or substitute water with herbal tea or fresh juice.

    Q: My son eats, and 30 minutes or sooner he has to go to the bathroom. He is thin, and doesn't hold food. If he eats he goes. What can he take to try to hold his food a little longer so that we can gain a few pounds. Is this behavior healthy? The doctors say he is fine, but going to the bathroom everytime you eat something, is a bit much.

    A:

    You're supposed to defecate 30 minutes after you eat. That's natural! You are going against nature to have the son to be like everybody else who are constipated, and don't know it. Don't follow societal norm!

    Q: I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your article on HPV. This afternoon, my doctor called to say I tested positive for low-risk HPV. Thankfully, I have become very spiritually grounded in the past few years, and I know the body has the power to heal itself. In a sea of disinformation (i.e. the internet), it is refreshing to read an article that discussed the spiritual and energetic bases to disease, particularly HPV. In my research today, I've come across quite a bit of information about pau d'arco and its healing qualities, particularly for HPV. Do you suggest pau d'arco? If so, is there a preferred method of ingestion?

    A:

    Greetings! Glad you enjoyed the HPV article! In re pau d' arco, I really don't recommend herbs by themselves because they are more consumed with other herbs that enhance them and compliment them. However, it is a good herb. Purple La Pacho and Red La Pacho are the most potent forms of this herb.

    Q: Thought I would let you know about my experience with Dherbs FULL BODY DETOX system. I am a healthy 33 year old woman who 5'4" 170. I changed my diet back in March in an effort to lose weight and it has been working. I heard about your product on the Russ Parr Moring show and had visited your site contemplating ordering. I consulted with my mom who is HEAVY into herbs and alternative healing. She and I read your product ingredients together and she confirmed that the listed herbs are very good cleansing agents and should be safe. I ordered a few weeks ago to assist in my weight loss but actually started the detox on Monday Sept 1st. The first day went well and I saw results immediately. The second day produced results also but almost immediately after taking the 7pm pills I had a pressure that moved around in my head. I did not hurt but it was different from anything that I have ever felt. Then my face began to tighten up and twitch. These effects lasted for about 5 minutes. The next day, Sept 3rd, I did not use the pills and was fine. This morning Sept 4th I took the 7am pills within minutes I experienced the same symptoms. After consulting my doctor and my mother I decided to cease the system because it seemed that my nerves were being affected. What do you think caused it and how do I get my money back?

    A:

    I can't and won't spend a lot of time in this response because it's so common and too much information on it already exists on the site (i.e. Detox Trouble-Shooter, article "Healing Crisis" "Is This Normal?) 1. Please read the article "HEALING CRISIS". 2. Please read the article "IS THIS NORMAL?" 3. Please read "DETOX TROUBLESHOOTING" ("Twitching"). 4. Please read FAQ ("FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE") near bottom of the page (which explains that there are no refunds for healing crisis symptoms). Healing crisis is POSITIVE and is a sign much needed healing and cleansing is taking place. Clearly you have damaged nerves that really needed addressing and it's taking place but your fear predicated upon ignorance is stopping the process. You experience healing crisis and panic and want to stop the healing and desire a refund. We don't refund for misunderstandings, fear, social programming, etc. Healing crisis don't last forever! Many people experience healing crisis but still stick with the program. Read some of the testimonials on the site ("TESTIMONIAL PAGE").

    Q: Why do people that have herpes, have less outbreaks as time goes on? I have read your articles on this disease, and I also have listened to your audio articles.

    A:

    Simply because slowly but surely as people accept the fact that they have been diagnosed with the insidious disease, they accept it and it quells anxiety. It is initial anxiety that causes outbreaks in the first place.

    Q: Hi Dherbs.com, how are you? About two years ago my grandmother purchased an ozone machine and I am wondering if you could answer a question I have about it: How long does the water remain "ozonated" after turning the machine off? Also, what is the most powerful way to reap it's benefits: drinking "ozonated" pure water, taking a bath in it, soaking your feet, directly into your ears, etc. Water remains ozonated for about 10-15 minutes and dissolves instantly once machine is off.

    A:

    Best ways to consume ozone is drinking it in water and bathing in it. All ways help though! I do them all!

    Q: My mother has been complaining for the last 4 months about blisters that have been popping up all over her body. She says that the are small bumps that appear anywhere on her body from the back of her knee to her nose. She describes them as painful with pus and they last for about 2 days. When she went to the hellspital (hospital) they diagnosed them as hair bumps and gave her antibiotics, but the problem persists...I told her the best thing would be to detox..do you have any idea what this could be and what the best move would be for her?

    A:

    Adverse Skin conditions usually are toxic blood conditions.

    We recommend that she detoxes and use our Oxy-Oil all over her body and take the Blood & Lymphatic Formula.

    Also, have her bathe daily in hot water with 1-2 boxes of sea salt and 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide added to the water. Have her soak in this solution for at least 1 hour.

    Q: My mother 60 yrs old has Glaucoma and takes drugs from the man in the white coat. She is getting progressively worse and I need to help her maintain the little sight she has left.

    A:

    Your mother should perform the Full Body Cleanse to remove all those harmful drug residues from her body. The Full Body Cleanse is available in capsule and liquid form.

    For her eyes, your mother needs to drink one cup of blueberry juice per day. Eating blueberries is also good for her. Herbal teas of bilberry and/or eyebright will also help her. Also the Eye Formula will be very helpful.

    She should perform eye exercises as well, i.e. rotating the eyes (1 minute each direction, left to right, right to left; shutting eye lids tightly for 30 seconds and then opening them again). Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!

    Q: Hi, I?m 26 years old male. I got genital herpes this summer 2007, the first outbreak was pretty itchy and painful a little, and now I got another small one. I have been reading your article and the power of mind and have been staying as positive as I can and also putting some aloe vera from the original leaf on the outbreak, and it is going away much quicker than the initial outbreak. However I am certain that I can completely get this so called incurable virus out of my system because it doesn?t make any sense to me that it would just lay there forever. Can you further guide me? I have ordered your Full Body Detox and the Anti Viral kit. You are really making a big impact on my life in a positive way and I am grateful to have found you. Just wanted to let you know that the thing I want to do the most is to become the best possible tennis player I can be.

    A:

    We are glad to hear of the impact we are having on you. We give thanks to you for sharing! We are here for you. You can ask your health inquiries free of charge via "Ask the Herbalist"

    Q: I began the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN approximately a week ago, it has been hard to maintain the fruit and vegan diet, but today I took the blood pills & then ate a grape fruit but after a 30 minutes or less I became sick. Is grapefruit a good morning food? Basically, why did it not stay down?

    A:

    I WOULD ABSTAIN FROM EATING GRAPEFRUIT. THE GRAPEFRUIT IS ACIDIC (THOUGH ALKALINE) BUT IT WAS NOT A GOOD MIX CONSIDERING THE INGREDIENTS OF THE BLOOD FORMULA. EAT VEGETABLES INSTEAD BEFORE TAKING THE BLOOD FORMULA.

    Q: My daughter aged 10 having the symptom mention below whenever she wakes up from her sleep. Can you please let me know what causes these palpitations? Are there any herbs to cure this palpitations fast heartbeat? She also has epilepsy. I have read your article on epilepsy and bought the BRAIN TUNER and OXY-DROPSand waiting for my brother to bring it back from New Zealand as the Malaysian government do not allow us to purchase herbs directly from overseas through the internet. I will be receiving them next week. Please advise what and how to have her palpitations solve. It may last for 40 minutes to an hour especially during the morning and that always causes her to be late to school.

    A:

    I would need some information about the child's diet and lifestyle to really determine what the cause of the palpitations is. Since the heart is involved, I would suggest the child takes 2-3 capsules of the CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA each night before bedtime. The child can also drink 1-cup of our HEARTY HEART TEAdaily as well.

    Beloved, there is relief for you! I suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX Cleanse followed by the Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse, and lastly, the Total Woman Cleanse. To help get the mind on track, I would suggest our "Mental Science Manual" which can read during your healing (each cleanse, re-read the book). You also may be interested in our Breast Oil.

    Q: I read most of your articles. Love them. What you say is 100% correct. See for me. I believe that God has put me here for a reason. I have been blessed with the ability to for see things and when I think about something hard enough BAM!! I think of someone and they show up, so in regards to my current situation YES. I did have a hand in this. I keep thinking of not wanting to get HIV. Didn’t want to hear about or talk about it. Then two months before getting my initial test. It was on my mind. Then I got a physical and I was like no going to take this test but went ahead anyway and here we are. Do I believe in it? Not anymore. I now believe in blood toxicity. I am not freaking out about outbreaks because I don't have any. What I want is to know how to shape my mind. Do I need Chakra balance? What can I do to stop the thoughts? How do I reverse my mind to stop thinking on things. I try so hard to see happy things and feel happy thoughts. BTW in Jan I thought about a cold sore and it appeared.

    A:

    Thanks for explaining all that! I think the MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL is right up your alley, Beloved. It'll be up next week. So glad you enjoy my articles, Beloved! You are a powerful person and you will be dangerous (in a good way) when you learn the power of your mind. Peace and Love!
