    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: Have you ever thought about expanding to the Houston, TX area? If so can I help? I have a high passion to teach people about nutrition, and herbal healing. It's because you I recently stop eating meat. Also do you talk to churches, if so could you talk to mine. I am willing to give up everything I do right now to fight against this horrible epidemic of Western Medicine.

    A:

    I could use all the help available! It's not easy being one person. I just need people who are committed though. And yes, I talk to plenty of churches here in California. I will talk to anyone who listens. I even teach health and nutrition from a Biblical perspective too. I only require hotel lodging, airline (United Airlines only), ground transportation, and if possible, a love offering. I'm always available to speak to God's people. Always! Thank you Elton! Thank you for your interest. There's no greater service today in the world than servicing people. Peace and Love!

    Q: Today is day 14 of my FULL BODY DETOX Journey. About 70% of my upper body is covered in red, painful eczema. I have been taking the sea salt baths but the peroxide on my face stings so I haven't continued doing it. I am trying to stay positive on this journey amidst the difficulty of walking around with red rashly peeling skin and painful, uncomfortable nights. I’m wondering where I go from here. I have 3 colonics line up this week and am trying to be even more diligent and have added wheatgrass and some flax evening primrose to my regimen. Should I expect that on my last day of this detox I will be covered in eczema and upon finishing the herbs it will go away? I just want to set realistic expectations for once the process is complete. I plan on maintaining a primarily fruit and vegetable diet after this and continuing with the juicing, etc. Is the detox process one where you go until the symptoms go away? meaning should I purchase another kit and continue instead of stopping at the 20 day mark? or is there a more mild method that I can use after the detox is complete?

    A:

    Healing takes time so please take things one day at a time, Beloved! Live in the moment! Don't worry about the future and future outcomes! Live in the day (today)! If the peroxide burns stop using it. Have you tried the HEALING SKIN OIL, Beloved? No matter how frustrating, STAY POSITIVE! There is great wisdom in pain and irritation! Expectations? get rid of them because if you don't get what you expect you will be disappointed. Detox and then take a brief break and just rely on food. After you detox (FBD) try the 10-DAY ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD CLEANSEand perform it 2-4 times straight if you can afford it. Have you read our â€ECZEMA†article? Don't forget to drink plenty of vegetable juice!

    Q: I think this way is easier and faster to have your response. I currently have many skin problems. I first started having body rash and eczema around my lips. When the skin gets dry, it hurts, and I've been trying to moisturize the skin with using all natural Burt's Bees andor Hugo natural lotion, cream or oil. I tried sea salt soak and been taking Sen-Fen, Blood formula, Immune support, Anti-Viral, but it's not working and the symptoms haven't gotten better at all. My entire body is really itchy from rash, so I haven't been able to sleep well for the past 2-3 weeks. If you have any suggestions for life style, special drinks and foods or products I can use, please let me know asap.

    A:

    Greetings! You skin problems are explained in the article "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" which I suggest you read. (visit articles section). When there's no physical healing, check the mind. Check out the NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL and there is a chapter in there on using the mind to heal. Basically you are focusing too much on the problem and not the solution which is optimal health and well-being. You are telling yourself how you don't want these problems and by saying this subconsciously, you are keeping the problems. Have your permanently switched or changed your diet? If not, what are you waiting for? Your blood is begging to be purified. Herbs alone won't get the job done. Let go of worrying about the problem. Focus on enjoying life, getting back in balance and you will begin to heal!

    Q: How come I have never heard you talk about Deer Antler Velvet Powder? Is it because you are opposed to anything animal based? This appears to be an herb, to add to one of your Athlete concoctions.

    A:

    I think this is a product derived from the antlers of deer. Deer antlers are for deer, not humans! I can't get in on this trade. This industry should leave the deer antler alone, and start using human fingernails. Humans are always messing with animals and Nature. Man is a disease to this planet in his present mentality.

    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'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.

Much obliged! Greatly!

    A:

    Q: Hello, I’ve used your FULL BODY DETOX, and continue to do so several times a year...It's amazing, thank you. I just read your March Newsletter and the "Question of the Month" was about head injuries & looking at your recommendations ( NERVES FORMULA, CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FORMULA, etc.), I'd like to know if this is something you would recommend for my brother. He recently had his second stroke about 7 months ago, lives in Dominican Republic, isn't getting the proper care and therapy, due to financial reasons. After the 1st stroke he was doing well, walking with a limp, didn't have use of his right arm, partial use of right leg, was learning to talk again. He progressed a lot. After the 2nd stroke he was bed-ridden, wearing diapers, couldn't swallow he was like a baby again. Now he's saying words, he's walking with a cane (very slowly); he's going to the bathroom on his own. He's slowly progressing. I live in CA & I was in Dominican Republic this past Christmas. It breaks my heart to see my brother this way. He's only 48 yrs old. I'd love to send him your products if they would help & not interferre with any medications he's taking. High Blood Pressure & Heart Disease run in my family. I strongly believe in your products, and at this point my brother needs a miracle. We stay positive. Another brother of mine takes care of him & is very positive. I have faith that he can heal quicker and enjoy life for many more years. So please advise what you'd recommend. Thank you so much for your time. Peace & Blessings

    A:

    Our products will greatly help your brother but they will interfere with the medication that will cause more strokes in your brother because all medications are poisons - PERIOD! Herbs will fight against those poisons so as to heal him. Should you choose herbs from Dherbs, I recommend CEREBRAL-VASCULAR FORMULA, CIRCUL-AID FORMULA, VEINS FORMULA, and CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FORMULA. There is healing for your brother!
