American farmer and author, Joel Salatin speaks about urban agriculture from Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia.
Q: I just came across this information, and I am VERY CONFUSED! I have recently come into consciousness about my health, origins, spirituality, etc. I am an avid reader of your site, and I am preparing to purchase your Full Body Detox. But, PLEASE TELL ME IF THIS IS TRUE: That on December 31, 2009, we (as a people) cannot buy any herbs, nutrients, without the prescription of a doctor (Codex)? I've been reading many articles, but due to brain overload it's very hard for me to comprehend. Does this mean there will be no more Dherbs.com, or health food stores selling herbs? Also, if you happen to write an article on this can you please let me know about an "urban legend" that there was a "world" meeting among leaders, and Oprah was the only black woman in attendance, and that legislation like Codex was brought into the forefront to decrease the Earth's population. After reading some articles, I could see a connection with this "urban legend", when one stated that Codex could possibly kill 3 billion people. I know you have mentioned it briefly in a Q&A on your site as well as an article on Hybrid Foods, but I am seeking your wisdom and commentary due to your ability to explain in layman's terms. I hope you can answer my questions as myself and many others look to your site for Overstanding.
Not true! Don't waste your time worrying about Codex A. Think positive, Beloved! The urban legend is laughable. Many people just like to think negative, so they create negativity in their life. That has nothing to do with Codex A, but their own thinking! You can relax, Beloved!
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 was curious Dherb.com are you going to make available the crystals and stones you always speaks about on Dherbs.com? I have purchased several items thus far and plan to purchase more kits and regimens in the near future. I have searched for some of these crystals and stones in my local community but have difficulty in selecting the stones or finding them all together.
We list great sources and references for crystals and chakras in the Dherbs Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual (available on-line). Look under SUGGESTED BOOKS.All of our Elixirs are made from crystals and can be purchased on our website. These can be used for healing purposes as well.
Q: I have a question about the "Nerves" Supplement. How do I take this 3X per day without getting sleepy? Since the main ingredient is Valerian root. Do I take all 3 capsules before bed time to avoid this, and does it matter whether I take all 3 at the same time? I'm confused since one of the reviews speaks of taking it as a sleep aid.
Simply take all 3 capsules before bed time, or one capsules every 3-4 hours. It's only a sleep aid if the capsules are taken before bedtime.
Q: I was reading about a famous black author who died of brain cancer and I wanted to know what does it mean on a metaphysical level? Cancer of the brain, breast, colon, mouth. What does this signify other than extreme toxicity? What does poor circulation mean metaphysically speaking? Do you think there is a link between hair dyes, hair relaxers (burners) and brain cancer and lupus among black females. This is "off the cuff" but I hate seeing black females with straightened hair and hair coloring. I really hate it. I hate long claws (fake fingernails).
Metaphysically, cancer denotes a feeling being eaten up (on the inside) by some emotion or emotions, always negative emotions. Mouth cancer - the person refused to speak out their hurt, anger, pain, etc. Breast cancer - the female failed to get things off of her chest or neglected caring for herself (nurturing herself, her wounds and pains, etc.). Colon cancer - the person couldn't stomach things but failed to release what was emotionally eating away at them.
Metaphysically speaking, poor circulation means your "life flow" is stagnant due to the burdens of life "weighing you down." Most people with poor circulation have weight issues. In addition they may be "poor" and their cash flow does not "circulate" the way they'd would like and so worries about bills and other financial responsibility makes them eat away their worries whereby they gain weight and hamper their bodily circulation.
And yes, chemicals in hair products (dyes, conditioners, relaxers) are playing a role in certain cancers of the head (i.e. brain cancer).
Q: I am African American and I have a two-week-old baby girl. I breast feed her, she still spits up all the time and sometimes it comes out through her nose. Saliva builds up in her mouth where it is difficult for her to breathe. She has thick white film on her tongue, and she has small tiny red bumps all over her face. I desperately need some advice to cure these ailments.
Your baby's colon is taxed and it sounds like from YOUR diet. Watch what you eat for your baby's sake. Start taking MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA and DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Her face is breaking out because her colon is not working. The skin is the largest organ of elimination so the skin is being used to help the baby eliminate!
Q: I am a 29 yr old African American Male with no Health Defects at all and I can't complain about my manly outputs. I'd like to know the difference between MALE HORMONAL FORMULA $24.95 Vs. JACKRABBIT FORMULA $35?
Q: I am a voluptuous (plus sized) African American female who has large fibroids (size of 7 month pregnancy). I am planning to have uterine artery embolization this spring. I came across your website and am interested in the full body detox and the fibroid buster kit. Which product do you suggest?
I suggest BOTH! First perform the FULL BODY DETOX, secondarily, perform the FIBROID BUSTER kit and regimen. With fibroids your size you will need constant cleansing of your body and a change of diet. You require a life change! Do this and you will heal naturally!
Q: I'm interested in a water purification system and there are two advertised in the American free press. One is the blue print water unit and the other crystal clear. Can you comment on either system and or what to look for in a water system?
What you want to look for in a water purification system is the type of filter it contains. The best filter material is CARBON, COPPER, and QUARTZ (crystal). All three are good at the filtering process.
The filter should either be an osmosis unit or an ionization unit.
Q: Hi, I'm a 36 year old African/American woman with 4 children whose been trying to lose weight off and on for the past 16 years. I lose the weight but then I gain it right back after I go off of my diet. I know that I need a good body/colon cleanse, but what I need to learn how to do is to eat the right food's to keep my body healthy. I've been conditioned to eat the foods that I do eat, I need to know how do I go about "de-programming" myself from the bad food's and program myself to want and crave the healthy one's? I'm open to any suggestion's you have, even using crystals and meditation. Thank you.
Time is limited here in "Ask the Herbalist" so I humbly request you consider a full length health consultation. However, I can tell you that you'd greatly benefit from a FULL BODY DETOX Cleanse.
Q: I am black mixed with, native american, and caucasian. My blood type is A. Does this matter as far as, what I should eat? And if so, where is the true information on this?
Please read the article "Eat Right For Your Blood Type?" located in our articles section.
Q: I am black/African-American woman who has been getting perms for the last twenty years and now I am experiencing thinning in my hair (especially at the top). What can I do to get my hair thick and beautiful again? Are there vitamins I can take? By the way, I don't digest vitamins in pill form well, therefore are there any liquid vitamins I can take?
You are experiencing the results of your actions. You can heal but it will take much effort. The abuse in your hair is programmed at a cellular level. Healing must be on a deep level. Detox your body periodically. Perform the FULL BODY DETOX. Next take MSM SULFUR (6-10 capsules daily), HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD. Modify your diet! Consider going vegan! Read our articles â€HAIR PROBLEMSâ€ and â€BLACK HAIR, NAPPY HAIRâ€. There is much information for you in these articles.
Q: LETâ€™S START WITH MALE, 40, AFRICAN AMERICAN DONâ€™T REALLY KNOW WHAT PRODUCTS TO START WITH. FEELING SLUGGISH AND TIRED ALL THE TIME. I WOULD LIKE AN ALL AROUND SUPPLEMENT IF POSSIBLE OR ADVICE?
Q: I am 47 years old, African American female, whose health has been failing for the past six years (75 lbs overweight, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, poor circulation, long-term/short-term memory loss). I have a uterine fibroid the size of a 23-week-old fetus. Rather take the natural way out. God does work in mysterious ways?I stumbled upon your website today. My plan is to do the Full Body CLeanse first. Please advise me on the use of the Female Cleanse and Fibroid Formula. Can the two be used in conjunction?
We recommend that you perform the Full Body Cleanse (and the soak mentioned in the Full Body Detox Companion) for 20 days followed by the Female Cleanse for 20 days, followed by the Weight Release Kit and Regimen. After you finish your cleanses, your regimen should consist of Fibroid Formula, Weight Release Formula, Electric Greens, and Detox Tea.
Do not use the Fibroid Formula in conjunction with the Female Cleanse or any other cleanse. Each cleanse must maintain its own set of formulas. Only use the Fibroid Formula once your cleanses are complete.
Purchase the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual for better and healthier food choices (on the cleanses and while off the cleanses). It is best to optimize your diet in order to achieve the best results and potentially heal yourself from your variety of ailments.
Q: You mentioned in the mental science manual that you obtained most of your legal knowledge on American law from trying to retrieve your vehicle. Could you provide me please on a good starting place to also retrieve that knowledge on American law?
Wow! There's just so much ground to cover. Perhaps I'll do an article on it! Start with the US Constitution - learning it, followed by your state's constitution. Obtain a Black's Law Dictionary, 5th edition ONLY! Stay tuned to Dherbs.com and you'll see more legal articles!
Q: I am a 32 year old african american woman. I am noticing that my body is changing overnight. I lost my mother in 2005, and since then I have been diagnosed with being clinically depressed. I was prescribed something that I did not even fill. I contacted the pharmacy to ask a few questions, and yes the pharmacist referred me to your website. I was able to grab some vitamin b 100, complex and that has helped me tremendously. I am calm, my anxiety level down is way down. I don't respond like I used to. Kinda just let things go all of a sudden, I am at peace. Okay! Do I need to cleanse? I have other issues as well, I really cant afford the Total Woman Cleanse. However, can I start on some tea, and maybe a less costly herbal pill. I also experience bad cramps monthly, and my hair is thinning.
Greetings! Very interesting that a pharmacist would recommend someone to our site. However, I am thankful to this pharmacist. I wonder if I know the person, as I know a few pharmacists. Good to hear those results pertaining to depression! Hair is thinning: Order and drink 1-2 cups of Hair-Skin-Nails Tea daily. Menstrual complaints: order and drink 1-3 cups of Moon Cycle Tea daily. I'd also recommend our Detox Tea
Q: I am a fair-skinned African American and I was wondering what are your recommendations for skin care? I donâ€™t wear makeup or anything; I am just interested in finding a cleansing, moisturizing regimen for daily use. All the products I have seen are SO expensive and or full of toxins. I donâ€™t have any skin problems such as acne. I noticed you have several soaps but I was unsure as to which are best for my face. Finally, is there really a need to wear sunscreen? Is there such a thing as "safe" sunscreen?
SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY BE INTERESTED IN OUR ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL MANUAL E-BOOK WHICH HAS A LISTING OF HEALTHY/ALTERNATIVE PRODUCTS INCLUDING SKIN CARE PRODUCTS. IT'S AVAILABLE FROM THE ON-LINE STORE ($10). THE NUBAIN HERITAGE SOAPS WE SELL ARE GOOD BUT I ACTUALLY RECOMMEND KISS MY FACE BRANDS FOR SKIN CARE PURPOSES. THERE IS REALLY NO NEED TO WEAR SUNSCREEN. SUNSCREEN IS PROMOTED BECAUSE IT WAS INVENTED AND SO IT MUST SELL, SO A THEORY THAT THE SUN WAS DAMAGING TO THE SKIN WAS CREATED AND SUNSCREEN BEGAN TO SELL.

First perform the FULL BODY DETOX. Next, perform the DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE! Change your diet to raw foods only (for 30 days). Then incorporate the vegan-vegetarian diet. NO MEAT! NO DAIRY! NO PROCESSED FOOD! Bathe in hot water, 2-3 boxes of sea salt! Daily! Drink vegetable juice 2-3 times daily (make sure you use parsley and cilantro). Rub your body down with Dherbs OZ OIL after every bath.
Q: I was having a discussion with my sons father about whether or, not black americans are descedants of africa. He says he is black, and is not a descendant from africa. That "we" can be from any where, not just africa. He doesn't accept the term african american. My sister was present, and she agreed with him. His statement made me so angry! Do think blacks are descedents of africa? Where else are we from, Europe? I thought this was just ignorant of thim to say. Unfortunately being slightly ignorant of this subject myself, I didnt have a way to argue that we are african. Are we black people descedents of africa? Should we use the term Afrian American?
Undoubtedly we are descendants of Africa (Afraka) and we should also socially and politically go by African-American for purposes of claiming our civil rights under a government we pay tax dollars to so as to serve our interests as American citizens.
