Q: I've been doing some studying about meats in the Old Testament, God has listed certain meats to eat and not eat. But, you say all meats are bad. Doesn't some meats give protein?
You can't compare the meats of 4,000 years ago with the meats of today. God, allowed man to eat meat only after the fall, so the meat diet is one that, is based upon being degenerate. For meat to provide protein it must be eaten raw like, animals in the wild eat it.
Q: I had a hysterectomy 8 years ago. I have been single for a number of years due to the death of my husband. I now have a wonderful man in my life and I enjoy making love with him. Often I have episodes of vaginal dryness that is so embarrassing and also it makes me loose the desire to continue because I have to use an artificial lubricant so he can penetrate me. I have looked over the list of products designed for women and I am not sure which female product that would best suits my situation. Please help.
Please read the article "VAGINAL DRYNESS" so as to get to the root of your problem. You don't want to be dependent on a product though products can assist you.
Q: I am a 20 year old young women, and I was diagnosed with a condition called lymphademia years ago. Its caused by lack of circulation through the lymph nods which causes swelling in the legs. do you know of any info or medicine for this condition?
Q: First off, let me say, I am soooo happy to have caught the DHERBS advertising while listening to WVON radio in Chicago, IL. This is a very professional, informed and wholistic website. Kudos to the DHERBS team! Secondly, I currently don't take a vitamin/mineral supplemant, but was leaning to the Green Vibrance powder product (are you familiar with this brand), as I've talked to several health food reps, and they spoke of it's popularity within the health industry, the need for vitamins/minerals from a natural green source, and it's potency over pills, being that it's a powder and will digest better, versus pills which come from potentially harmful, scientific sources and, since they're in pill form, aren't absorbed by the body 100%. I was hoping to get a DHERB rep's opinion on GREEN VIBRANCE versus your mineral/vitamin supplemants. I hope you'd be unbiased, as you'd be commenting on a competitor product, as I truly am searching for the best product. I thank you in advance for your time and reply!
I am delighted you enjoy the Dherbs website. Thank you for your words! Green Vibrance is a pretty good product and would supply you with much needed nutrition as mostly all green foods will. My only concern with the product (Green Vibrance) is the mixing of ingredients. I don't believe in mixing fruits with greens due to the mixture of acids and alkalines. A green food product should be TOTALLY "green foods" only and nothing else. Green Vibrance mixes citrus/acids i.e. grape seed extract, acerola berry juice powder with green foods in addition to bee pollen, royal jelly, wheat germ, etc. Also, as a vegan (strict vegetarian), I object to BEE POLLEN and ROYAL JELLY being used. These are from living entities (insects/animals). I also object to SOY as well which is in the product! Other than this, Green Vibrance is a great product that I would endorse as a source of organic nutrition and dietary fiber. Dherbs MULTI-VITAMINS AND MINERALS FORMULA and other products that are in pill form are in VEGAN capsules that dissolve 100%. At Dherbs.Com, we only use the BEST! Our product is 100% botanical! However, as far as absorption, NOTHING absorbs better than liquid and nothing is better as a source of minerals, vitamins, amino acids than FULVIC ACID which we sell as KHEMETIAN GOLD. This stuff is POWERFUL! 1000% pure nutrition! Do your research on Fulvic and Humic Acid and you'll see why I'm saying what I'm saying! So basically, Beloved, either way (Green Vibrance or VITAMIN B COMPLEX and/or KHEMETIAN GOLD) you'll be getting much needed nutrition! It's your choice! We value and respect free will and we don't believe in competition nor do we have to belittle, negate, or condemn another product or company to make a sale. Our primary concern is that people get what they need nutrition-wise and it doesn't have to come from us. Our goal is not to just sell products, but to properly educate people about human health and that's why we offer 175+ free articles in addition to 100+ products! Peace and Love --- and thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com! p.s. - read our testimonials on our site and listen to (read about) the American people on what they are experiencing with Dherbs.Com products!
Q: I am 56 years old woman, past menopause. I do not want to have my periods resume. If I complete the Total's Women's Cleanse, will my cycle resume?
No, especially if your cycle is officially over. The TWC will help you. Drink Female Health Tea (1-2 cups daily) and inhale Female Aid Inspirant daily. Take 3 capsules daily of Female Hormonal formula!
Q: Hello, Is it okay to drink the naked fruit smoothie on the 10 day detox. I read the label and no sugar and additives are in the drink. Thank you
A: Unfortunately you cannot consume any pre-made store juices or smoothies. Those kind of beverages contain preservatives and additives to help sustain shelf life and is also pasteurized (processed foods).
Q: I would like to know, if you have any skin care programs, for women age 50 and over. I am going to try the detox progarm as soon as possible. I truly believe that I am going to be very happy with the results. I am 51 years old, and I want to look and feel my best. I have a lot of belly fat, and that makes me feel uncomfortable, because some people will ask me, if I am pregnant. This seems very strange to me, because my stomach seems to be the main place, where all the fat is building up. I desire to have beauty inside and out. I want to be completely whole. If you have tips for skin care and body care, please let me know. Some people say that I look like I am in my forties, however, if I did not have all of this extra body fat, I could really believe what they are saying.
The blood needs to be cleansed in order to enhance your skin and eliminate excess fat.
We would recommend you perform the Full Body Cleanse which can help improve skin complexion, release weight, and detoxify, purify, rejuvenate, and strengthen the body and all of its eliminative channels.
We also have a Facial Skin Kit that works to naturally restore the health of skin by helping to remove blemishes, hydrate skin, and even out complexion for resilient skin.
Q: Hi Dherbs.com, I'm 17 and I'm from west Africa, I am Aquarius. I really like your medicine and advice, it reminds me of Africa! I have a heavy computer that I use for college, and it's about 3 Kgs. I also lost about 15 Kgs (65-50 kgs for 1.60m) in 1 year in Europe, and I would like to know what may cause it. my back really hurts, I try to be as healthy as possible, I'm turning vegan, I've stopped everything but dairy and, because it's everywhere and I don't have time to cook for myself every day. I also have problems at school, it's too hard to study, I always feel tired, and I've got problems with family, they want me to keep on studying things I don't like. How could you help me ? Thanks a lot and keep on doing your job, it's great!
Back problems also have an emotional cause. Are you bending over backwards for somebody or something? Do you feel that your back is against the wall in some regard or matter? Turning vegan is a good idea and should really improve your health. Have you read our article "DANGEROUS DAIRY" Now as far as your family wanting you to do things you don't want to do, you need to follow your heart and do you. Always be true to yourself. It's the only way magic can happen or occur.
Q: I live in New Jersey and I'm interested in where can I purchase these crystals you spoke about on one of your audio tapings and I'm also interested in water alkaliner/oxygenizer. The one you spoke about drinking and giving you the energy to move many boxes.
Call information (411) and ask for SOOTHE YOUR SOUL in Redondo Beach, California (located on Pacific Coast Highway). This store sells both crystals and the water alkalizer machine.
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.
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 had a full hysterectomy, over 47 years old, the doctor has prescribed 0.1-estrogen patch. What products do you have to replace estrogen? Do Women need estrogen? My hair is thinning and the memory is getting weak. And want to get off the patch, because I have heard it causes breast cancer. I have stop taking the patch but am experiencing hot flashes. I don't like anything foreign for the body. Help
WELL, YOU DON'T WANT TO REPLACE ESTROGEN, BUT MAINTAIN HEALTHY ESTROGEN LEVELS. ESTROGEN CAN'T BE REPLACED. THERE'S NATURAL ESTROGEN AND UNNATURAL ESTROGEN. I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. AFTER THESE KITS, A GOOD FORMULA WOULD BE FEMALE HORMONAL FORMULA AS WELL AS THE FEMALE HEALTH TEA. WE ALSO HAVE A GOOD ARTICLE ENTITLED â€FEMALE HORMONAL REPLACEMENT THERAPYâ€ FOR YOUR MEMORY PROBLEMS, I SUGGEST BRAIN TUNER AND OXY-DROPS. DON'T FORGET TO CHANGE YOUR DIET AND EAT MORE NATURAL AND HEALTHY FOODS TOO (I.E. FRUITS AND VEGGIES).
Q: Iâ€™m 26 years old. No sex drive for over two years. On the pill for dysmennorhea for about 6 years. Engaged and very happy, but sex a chore. Suggestions please...
Sounds like you need to perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE to reboot your endocrine system (hormonal system). After these, take as a daily regimen BUNNY RABBIT formula and drink FEMALE HEALTH TEA! Now on a mental, emotional, and psychological level, do you enjoy sex? Are you sexually attractive to your fiancÃ©? Are there past sexual issues that need to be resolved (raped, molested, STDs, numerous abortions, etc.)? Are you sexually pleased after intercourse? These are questions that need to be answered and dealt with. Libido is an easy thing to get to come back! Hey, read some of our articles on our site under ARTICLES! Great information!
Q: Thank you for the cancer info...It is welcome and beyond informative, however, I take issue with your remark that "women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men." Part of me is not surprised--men make comments like this all the time. I chalk it up to ignorance, as men enjoy living their entire lives not having to endure periods, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and lord knows what else. So because a woman does not want to have children--at all, or at a particular time in her life--she wants to be a man?! That's an illogical conclusion you are making. So why are there pregnant women with cancer, some of which who have never taken BC pills? Are women entitled to making any sort of control over their reproductive health? What about women who are infertile, naturally? If they develop cancer, is it because they never gave birth to a child? Are you willing to support all of the children that will result from women not being on Birth Control, since many people cannot afford several children on their incomes? This line of reasoning makes some women think that men really need to get over themselves. I think you have been reading too much Freud. Some women, present company included, appreciate our femininity and everything that encompasses being a woman. At the same time, this is not the dark ages--and even then, women chose not to have children during different times in their lives. Surely you are aware that in non-Western countries women utilize natural herbs to control their reproduction or as abortifacients? I am not advocating abortion; my point is that if you are going to criticize women taking BC pills, you may as well extend this criticism to women naturally preventing pregnancy via alternative means.
Birth control pills play a big role in female reproductive cancers. Women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men. In attempting to stop or prevent life (birth control), they are ending up losing their very own lives. And the birth control pills cause cancer in areas of the body that denote femininity (breasts, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus and vagina). This is a form of language here. You have disease and female organ(s) which basically means your disease is specifically related to an issue of femaleness or femininity, that's why the disease manifests in these "female" organs. In attempting to be like and compete with males, females compromise their feminine integrity and goddess nature which "eats them up" (anger, frustration, sadness, etc.) inside. When the cancer appears in any female organ, it serves as a sign or sensor that the problem lies on a deeper metaphysical level pertaining to emotions, thoughts and attitude."
Q: Due to what I did with women in previous experiences, from time to time I tend to think, and worry about what my woman might do. She's a wonderful lady-she really is; and she's been upfront, and honest from the get go. But, I can get a little pessimistic about the relationship. But, I do that because I know how slick women can be. I've been on the receiving end of that slickness! So again, from time to time, that creeps up in my thoughts. And yes, I have been absolutely committed to her as well.
What you focus on with emotion is what you attract according to the law of attraction. If you continue to give these negative thoughts, your focus you will manifest this outcome. You have to consciously change this pattern to get out of your loop. When you feellike consciously, remind yourself of what you DO want. Allow yourself to create what you really want, which is to feel calm and in love with your amazin woman.
Q: I was on the computer, I came across the article on the big ole butt. In the article you said (paraphrase) that successful women tend to be sick. Are you saying that these women should not try to be successful? in my opinion if black women are overweight, they cannot blame the corporate lifestyle, they have to blame themselves. We are all in control of our own lifestyle, those same corporate black women, if they were working 9-5 at some factory somewhere, they would still be fat. I do agree with you when you stated that many black women lack will power to fast. I think that we lack will power to do anything that is beneficial to us. Yes I do agree with you that the steatopygia female does look like a "pig". their faces tend to take on pig like facial features. Yes you are right that miss steatopygia tends to wear tight pants, (in my opinion that type of backside is stinky looking). So yes there is some parts of the article I do agree with. Far too many of us black women, tend to be stubborn and too defensive. I am glad that your site does exist, because far too many sites like to blame "whitey". You are one of the few black health specialists, that put the blame on us, and you should because our lifestyle is our responsibility.
No, these women should BECOME successful, but not lose their health and/or souls in the process of becoming successful. The corporate sector has played a great "role" in Black women gaining weight because the jobs are too sedentary and they have access to too much sugary junk which converts to fat because corporate jobs don't allow them to burn off the fat. I've seen this firsthand with many once fine sisters who blew up like houses within a 5 year period. Corporate America was the venue in which Black women CHOSE to let their health go by the wayside, at least the majority of them. Thank you for sharing your views and sentiments on this Dear Sista! Much obliged!
Q: Three years ago, my little sister who is 15 years old was told she has diabetes. Recently she went to the doctor and was told that her kidneys are showing signs of failing, and she also has a case of asthma. How can we solve this challenge?
YES! Please get her on the PANCREAS CLEANSE AND REGIMEN a.s.a.p. for diabetes/kidney situation. For asthma: RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. Read some of our health articles, i.e. â€DIABETESâ€, â€RESPIRATORY HEALTHâ€, etc.
Q: I am on the second day of the Total Women Cleanse. I am unsure of the use of the magnets. Do I use only one on the designated thyroid area and what are the smaller ones for?
Stick the magnets over the thyroid area (where indentation is above the chest bone, about 2 inches beneath the Adam's apple). You only use one magnet. The other is an extra one in case you lose a magnet. The side that goes against the skin has an indentation in it (like a small dot). Stick it to your skin and where for the duration advised in your booklet.
Q: I am a Diabetic, have been for over 30 years, I am 52 years old, recently I was diagnosed with Moderate kidney disease, which is a level 3 out of 5, I would like to know what can I do to prevent anymore loss of kidney function. I had did a body detox and my doctor inform me that this is what might have caused my kidney loss, please help me.
Most doctors are idiots pertaining to herbs. Herbs are food! The drugs and poor diet is what caused your problem. Solution: FULL BODY DETOX followed by the PANCREAS CLEANSE AND REGIMEN . These cleanses will help your save your kidneys. Drugs won't! Drugs will lead you to dialysis.
Q: Truth indeed. I just finished watching this youtube video, on mass control, fluoridation, and mercury poisoning. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?Feature=player_embedded). I wondered if there were any herbs, or natural rememdies that can counteract this? I am in my mid 30s, and feel as though I am going through alziehmers (growing forgetfulness, absent-mindedness, foggy thinking, ADHD, hypersensetivity to noises so as to find it almost impossible to concentrate). I have my "Back to Eden" Book, I will continue digging for answers there too.
