    Q: I was recently attacked and stabbed on the street. I was taken to a hospital. There, I was then cut open for apparently no reason, because the bleeding stopped on its own. Now, I have lumps on my stomach, one of which bothers me when I sneeze, and stretch. I asked another doctor what was happening, and he told me it was fat and fibers, and that it wouldn't go away. I dont want to ask another doctor, because I know they'll suggest an operation. Can you give me an alternative route? I'd like to hear what you have to say peace and blessings.

    A:

    There's no herbal alternative to surgery, Beloved! Man, doctors are no joke! They will do anything just to make money. Perform the Full Body Detox, Beloved! Rub Healing Skin Oil on the lumps.

    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: I am on Medication/Prescription Drugs Do you recomend that I stop taking the anti viral drugs that my doctor have me on, while using the FULL BODY DETOX.

    A:

    Answer: This is a personal decision and choice you have to make for yourself. Common Sense would dictate that if drugs cannot heal the human body (and they can’t) and one truly desires to heal, then one would not take that which is contrary to healing. Drugs mask symptoms and do not heal symptom or the cause of the symptom. So why are you taking drugs? Because your doctor said so? Well, what does your body say? What does your gut feeling (instinct) say? Follow your intution!

    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: I am a 29 year old African American female. I would like to tell you my story and get your advice. Before Sept. 28, 2008 I was a healthy fun loving female but after sept. 28th my health has not been the same. I wake up in the morning weak with nausea and headaches. I went to Kaiser and they said I had a virus and I had to let it take its course. I work with kids and it was hard for me to go back to work because 1. I kept getting sick. 2. My boss was mad that I was sick and not able to work. So I went back to Kaiser and then they said I was sick and had a virus with a mix of anxiety(due to my boss going crazy on me). They said I need to rest and stop being anxious, so I can heal.(well the anxiety is gone) Next I started to get sharp pains in my stomach area(which I have had before on and off for the past couple of years but it would only happen like once or twice a year) but I was scared because the pains we're very sharp and happening like two weeks apart. So Kaiser told me to go see a Upper GI Dr. I went to see one and had an endoscopy done and they found a yeast infection in my throat and that also my esophagus was irritated to but my stomach looked fine. So they put me on Prontiox (for the irritated esophagus and Difucan (for the yeast infection). Well as soon as I finished the medication for the yeast infection in my esophagus, I lost my voice and could not talk for 4-5 days and I still have the stomach pains. So the Upper GI dr. told me the sore throat and losing my voice was a side effect to GERD and that is what I may have. So he asked to up the dose of the Prontiox (so now I am taking 80 mg instead of 40 mg a day). But guess what still having stomach pains and my voice still goes in and out and it feels like something is stuck in my throat and now when I eat, I feel food get stuck in my chest like right in the middle of my breast. So what is going on with me...they have done blood work on me from blood count to checking me for STD's (even HIV) and everything came back normal/negative. And they keep saying all my blood work is healthy...So what is going on and what can I take, because I am a natural person and my system is sensitive to a lot of stuff and I don’t like being on these medications. And now the DRs may think I have IBS..Oh boy Help!! And oh yeah I have had very bad cramps when I have my period and take Motrin and I would like to know is there anything I can take that is sensitive to my stomach... HELP

    A:

    Beloved, first perform the FULL BODY DETOX. Next, perform TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, and lastly, perform the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. These kits will repair your system!

    Q: Hi it's me again. I just read what you said about meat and what I don't understand is if meat was not good for us why in the Bible people eat Lamb. How would you explain back in the Bible times during Abraham and Moses when they use to offer sacrifice and kill a lamb were they cruel and going against God. And those who couldn't afford animals like Lamb would use bird eggs. In the book of Exodus chp. 12: 11,21,27,43,48 and Lev. 23:5 and 12:3, Deut. 16:7and Exodus 34:25 when the death Angel was passing and God told them to kill a Lamb and put the blood on the door post and gave the command for them to roast it. How would you explain that because up until this day the Jews still eat Lamb. Even fish, it was fish that God used to feed the 5000 people. Are you saying I can't eat fish at all. I would like to know some of the things you eat in the place of meat , fish and chicken. I really want to change my eating habit.

    A:

    All meat consumption came AFTER the Fall of Man (Genesis Chapter 6). Man can eat meat while in a degenerate state but to return back to Eden he/she must go back to plant foods. Also, meat today is greatly TAINTED unlike meat 4,000 - 6,000 years ago! It's not the same. Jews are not the healthiest people, by the way! Health conscious people are!
