Dr. Mike Evans is founder of the Health Design Lab at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, gives a few resources that could help you quit smoking.
Q: I ordered a bottle of CIGA-QUIT (ANTI-SMOKING) FORMULA. I need to know, if not doing the detox, will they still help you to quit smoking? How long will it take, for it to start working, and do I stop smoking all at once or gradually?
Q: I just quit smoking this year, and I was wondering what herb would be best to take or drink as a tea to help heal and restore my lungs, heart, etc.?
Q: Do you have a product that will help me to quit smoking?
Products can help but the issue of smoking is "discipline." Only then you can stop smoking. I would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX for starters and then give our new SUBSTANCE ABUSE CLEANSE a try (it should be out next month, October 2008).
Q: What would be recommended if I need to quit smoking and lose weight?
You should detoxify your body with the Full Body Cleanse and then use Smoke-Less Formula for daily maintenance that helps to reduce cravings and combat your body’s dependency on nicotine once you complete the cleanse.
Q: Should I try your CIGA-QUIT (ANTI-SMOKING) FORMULA and ALCOHOL BUSTER BEFORE I detox??? Please advise.
I SAY DETOX FIRST BUT STOP LOOKING FOR EXTERNAL SOLUTIONS FOR INTERNAL PROBLEMS. THE ANSWER ALWAYS LIES WITHIN SELF. YOU ARE THE ANSWER, NOT SOME PRODUCT (NATURAL OR UNNATURAL).
Q: I had a question for the herbalist. I was wondering if there is a safe way to detox quickly from marijuana. My best friend is 30 weeks pregnant and she has been smoking her whole pregnancy. She has to quit now and be drug tested before the baby is born She has been looking for things to take and I don't want her just taking something that could be unsafe for her or her baby. She is going to be tested in 2 weeks is there anything she can do or take that will be safe for her and her baby
She could always drink our DETOX TEA!
Q: I just sent you an email yesterday regarding my husband, but I am sending this one because I have read through a lot of your articles and one thing that I didn't see was your outlook about smoking weed. How do you feel about smoking weed? I mean isn't it suppose to be an herb and if it is smoked through a bong as oppose to blunt paper isn't weed healthy? Please forgive my ignorance.
Please read our article THE BLUNT FACTS OF MARIJUANA. The substance is banned by your government so why take the risk? Why not just meditate or work with crystals or yoga? No herb should be smoked. You're putting fire to it, which changes the molecular structure of the thing being burned.
Q: My wife quit using HRT "premarin" several years ago because of the bad publicity about it. She has not taken anything since. What should she take if anything? She has experienced a weight gain that is hard to get rid of and a craving for sweets. We ordered the sugar control last week.
Please read our article "Female Hormonal Replacement Therapy" on our site for natural HRT alternatives.
Sugar Control is a good start. Your wife may wish to perform the Full Body Cleanse and/or the Female Cleanse in order to help eradicate sugar and junk food cravings, while working to naturally cleanse and detoxify the body to aid in necessary weight release, enhancing the immune system and increasing energy levels.
Q: I am addicted to opium for years and I am planning to quit, is there ant herbal supplement honestly to help me in that purpose? I do not want to substitute any chemical products.
Yes, the Full Body Cleanse will help your body eliminate toxins and support normalized and regular body functions.
However, after detoxing, you may want to remain on the Activated Charcoal (taking it every day for 30 days straight).
Then soak in hot water with 6 boxes of sea salt per bath every day or every day you can afford such bath. Lastly, drink Licorice tea (2-3 cups) per day. These will help you detoxify your body further and remove harmful waste that is affecting your body.
Q: Sorry to bother you again but you are a wealth of knowledge and I appreciate all your information you give us. I am 44yrs old and have 20 pounds to lose. After I quit taking EHEDRINE I started gaining my weight back. I use to take EPHEDRINE to keep the weight off and no longer am able to order it in my state of Minnesota because it is banned. So I ordered some EPHDRA POWDER in hopes it would do the same for me as the ephedrine did but the ephdra powder doesn't SUPPRESS MY APPETITE like the ephedrine tablets did. I was wondering what I could add to the powder to bring out the appetite suppressant qualities in the ephdra powder. I have tried to brew it with my coffee and that hasn't helped either. I really would like to take this weight off and ephedrine was the only thing that helped me and I pray that your knowledge would help me to lose this excess weight. I bought your thyroid capsules and wondering how long before I will notice any energy difference. (I have a hypothyroid which is probably the cause of the gaining weight but the ephedrine helped me with that also). I pray you can
You're giving external factors too much power over you. Things never heal us, only placate us. Truly answers lie within. What did Ephedrine have that God did not put in you? Forget about keeping weight off, instead focus on maintaining your desired weight. Why do you need to suppress your appetite? What you suppress in one area will manifest in another area. Suppression does not heal, only hides things and allows things to grow. Your challenge is to cultivate self discipline and maintain your desired weight. Read my article â€EPHEDRAâ€ under articles. Ephedrine is a damn drug! Drugs don't heal, they only suppress! Nature (Ephedra) takes time! My knowledge cannot help you to lose weight, but only stimulate you into taking control of your own life and health, especially pertaining to weight. Your power lies within! It dos not come from outside of self! The Kingdom of God is WITHIN!

Q: I am beginning a career as an artist but I am a single mother. I have worked in many corporate offices as a temp. I have attempted attending schools for things I thought would make me money. I really want to be a successful artist but I also have to take care of my son and work on art and work on my freelance contracts. I do not make the money I want or live where I want to live yet. I help my mother with her bills, I buy groceries and cook for everyone, I work at my uncles center for children and out of an art gallery at the homeless shelter as well as attend courses regarding the art business. I am doing it all without acquiring debt but I would like to know if it sounds like I am doing enough. I live a very lonely life, no real friends, no boyfriend. The only "kicks" I get are smoking a little weed and drinking a little wine here and there. I take my son to school and pick him up daily. I made sure I got him into one of the top schools in my city I also try to teach him and read to him as much as possible and keep him out of trouble. It gets hard. How do I stay motivated? I think the thing that bothers me most is uncertainty and the lack of money I have right now. How do I get to the next level financially without acquiring debt or having to fight traffic and deal with crazy attitudes every day?
I apologize for the very delayed response, we have been experiencing technical difficulties. I first would like to commend you on your ability to prioritize in such an effective manner. Your life sounds like one lived in great service to and love of others. However, it is also VERY important that you receive energy from others so that you do not become too imbalanced. Balance in life is crucial in all things (spiritual, physical, cognitive, relational etc).
Your loneliness is your heart's/spirit's way of asking for relational balance. It will continue asking louder and cause difficulties in other areas of your life/being until you create this balance. Your substance use (and thank you for your honesty) only temporarily masks the loneliness, but drugs can only make it worse. You see, drugs block us from becoming skilled at creating healthy relationships because they numbs us by turning down the volume on our brain's natural pleasure-centers.
Additionally; keep in mind: Your first fruits are always to be consumed by YOU! You must always place yourself first, even before your son. In example: Airlines direct you that in the event of trouble you are to place your own oxygen mask on first. You can be of no use to your son if you are unconscious due to lack of oxygen. Similarly, if you give all of your fruits to others, you will have no "seed" or energy to produce more fruit.
You must give to you first! Then you have the energy to give to others. It teaches others how to give to you, how to love you, how to respect you and your needs while giving them the opportunity to reciprocate by giving to you. This is how we balance giving. Don't worry if it feels selfish at first, it definitely will seem that way, to you and possibly others. Its just the change of tides making everyone feel a bit uncomfortable - but this will balance out in time as you become more skilled at receiving and feel more worthy of others' care .
I realize you have asked several other questions, however I have addressed the one I feel will help unblock your energy and allow you to see that the answers to the other questions have always been right before you. We are born with everything we need to accomplish our goals, we only need to focus on the proper utilization of these gifts and resources. If you couple this skill with fearlessness and belief in oneself, you will win.
