    Q: I was reading your article about vinegar being harmful to the body because of its acids and I was curious to know what you think of the Organic unpasturized, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with mother? I saw that at the end of the article it stated that "if you must" use vinegar to use the organic apple cider vinegar but, I have read many places that it has many health benefits such as reducing bad cholesterol, regulating blood pressure, eliminating toxic waste from the body, fighting fungal and bacterial infections, helping relieve joint pains, breaking down fat which helps in natural weight reduction.

    A:

    I approve of apple cider vinegar for health purposes. Some good stuff!

    Q: I was wondering if it is okay to mix Mrs. Dash season blend with Olive Oil as a dressing for my salad? It tastes real bad with just Olive Oil alone, and I don't like the bitterness taste of lemon juice, and apple vinegar cider. Plus, what would you recommend for toppings to make the salad more interesting? Can I put olives, and cucumbers, etc.?

    A:

    Do as you please as far as dressing goes! Just stay away from harmful ingredients! Mrs. Dash, seasonings, Olive Oil,

    Q: The reason I have chronic constipation is not because of diet, I eat very healthy, it is because of pain medication (narcotics), that I have to take to be able to stand the excruciating pain I am suffering from 5 spinal surgeries (I have metal rods in my spine from my shoulder blades to my tailbone). In order to have a regular bowel movement every day I take Glyco Lax (a dr.'s RX) 2x a day, plus what I call my "concoction" : I Tbs raw honey, 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp. lemon juice, 1/3 cup fresh ground golden flaxseeds,? 1 tsp. Natural Psyllium Husk Fiber, and put all of that in hot purified water and drink it. I also take a stool softener with stimulant. That is a lot of time consuming work for me, but it does work. You offer several products for regularity, but I don't know which one to order. My Dr. says senna is very harsh and addictive, and your products seems to have a lot of senna in them. I was told it is not good for long term use. Please advise.

    A:

    Senna is a 100% all-natural herb that is completely safe. It can be used for bowel movement stimulation, as the body recognizes and assimilates the herb without any side effects. All of our products can provide numerous health benefits.

    Q: I'm doing the Full Body Cleanse and I have a few questions about it: I get tired of drinking just the distilled water and I'd like to drink the herbal teas, but I don't like it by itself. Would it mess things up to add a pack or two of Splenda to my tea or maybe honey? I can't stand the salads with the olive oil or apple cider vinegar or the lemon juice as dressing and it makes me gag. I have To have some sort of salad dressing. What kind would be suitable? Do I look for sugar-free? Or organic and natural? I found one that is organic and natural, but it has 3 grams of sugar in it. Without eating all my whole grained breads and other fiber, I haven't had much of a bowel movement in 3 days, should I wait a while yet? (I had surgery on my bowels and always had to take fiber tablets and eat lots of grains to get my bowels to move.) I haven't done the enemas yet, (low on money) should I try that? Or should I resume my fiber tablets I normally take? Any type of fiber I could add to my fruit smoothies in the morning? I want to also do the female cleanse. Is it ok to do that immediately after I finish the full body cleanse or should I wait for a little while? Thank you for all your help, I feel much better than I did before and I just started this detox a week ago, lost 10 pounds, too, woohoooooo! Thank you

    A:

    1. Instead of splenda, use agave, stevia, or grade b maple syrup as a sweetener.

    2. In re Salad Dressing, an organic and natural one is great. You can also check our website for salad dressing recipes.

    3. The fiber pills are not part of the cleanse, so we wouldn't advise those. Fruit is you best choice of fiber so look into eating more papaya, mango, figs, etc. And yes, colonics (and enemas) would greatly help you - undoubtedly!

    4. You can do the Female Cleanse right after you finish detoxing. There's no need to wait!

    Q: Good Morning, hope all is well. My 11 yr. old son has a serious problem! The skin between his toes on both feet are peeling, and he has sores. The rest of his feet look fine. Also, on his arms & legs he has black spots. As if he had a mosquito bite, and scratched it. But that's not the case. What is this? I've tried tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar, and a cream from our local herb store for his feet. To this day nothing has helped. I don't give him meds from our so-called doctors. However, I am considering taking him to get a diagnosis. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanking you in advance and have a wonderful day!

    A:

    Please read the article on our site entitled "Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder" as your son is dealing with a blood disorder. Let his feet breathe which can be done by allowing him to wear sandals, or open air shoes. Allow him to soak his feet in warm water with about half a cup of sea salt, and 1 ounce of hydrogen peroxide (for about 30 minutes). After the soak, rub his feet down and in-between his toes with our Healing Skin Oil. Perform daily! Consider having the child completing the Children's Liquid Cleanse.

    Q: I'm a personal trainer with a client who suffers from acid reflux. She was taking on teaspoon of apple cider vinegar a day and that was keeping it under control. One of her favorite foods is grapefruit. Her reflux has gotten worse and her doctor has since put her on medication to keep it under control. Is there anything that she can do that is more natural and can place her body back in balance?

    A:

    This person needs to consider performing the FULL BODY DETOX and after such detox, do a daily regimen of ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, ACID BUSTER, ENZYMES FORMULA, and DIGEST AID. For right now, she needs more alkalinity in her system which comes from green foods. Alkalinity counteracts acidity. Have her drink vegetable juice daily.

    Q: I'm a so-called diabetic, is it really okay to sweeten the tea with honey or maple syrup (these are no no's in the medical field!)? I'm not the best at swallowing pills-can I take the herbs out of the capsule and take it? I know this one sounds crazy, but I'm 32 and over a period of time, I have developed or formed rolls or dents on certain areas of my scalp. I guess it's hereditary-my father has them as well. I hate it! It's an eyesore to me. Is there anything natural for this? Lastly, could you say a prayer for me so that I may make a few wholesale deals (real estate) this month? I’m trying to create streams of income so that I may parolee' these monies into other things (i.e. health, prosperity, testimony to others).

    A:

    I DON'T RECOMMEND HONEY. BUT MAPLE SYRUP IS OKAY. STEVIA IS EVEN BETTER! YOU SURE CAN! JUST WORK AT CONSTANTLY CLEANSING YOUR BODY, CHANGING YOUR DIET AND VISUALIZING HOW YOU DESIRE YOUR HEAD/BODY TO BE/APPEAR. SURE, I WILL SEND ENERGY YOUR WAY, BELOVED!

    Q: I have ordered the ANTI-NEGATIVE THOUGHTS ELIXIR and ANTI-ANGER ELIXIR. It says to take 1-2 dropperfuls. How? It says it contains crystals. I don't think I'm supposed to be ingesting crystals. The instructions are not clear for these products. What am I supposed to do with this?

    A:

    We explain what a dropper-full is in our "FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE". When you squeeze the soft black top and liquid halfway fills the dropper (clear glass part), that's considered ONE dropperful. So basically, TWO dropperfuls means repeating the process (doing it twice). Does this make sense to you? Hopefully this explanation suffices for you; if not, please let us know. Now clearly the product does not contain actual physical crystals, only their properties or vibrations. The product is 100% safe to ingest! The new labels will reflect this language because many people are new to vibrational medicine and are a bit confused. We apologize for the inconvenience (confusion).

    Q: I started the full body detox today, and found that I DO NOT like the salad dressing I made with the olive oil, apple cider vinegar and lemon juice. I found I could not tolerate it on my salad. What can I do instead? Another question is... I noticed lentils on the food combining chart. Those have to be cooked. Are those actually allowed to be consumed warm? I love the raw fruits and vegetables. I don?t have a problem, cause I love salads. I just need help on what I can have on it.

    A:

    Check out our website for raw salad dressing recipes. You are bound to find one you like.

    As for lentils, you are NOT allowed to have them while on the cleanse.

    Q: Thanks for your article about vinegar. I was just going to use it regularly with honey. Can you use it on your skin though? I was wondering if the acidity would be good for wrinkles or acne.

    A:

    Glad you enjoyed the "Vinegar" article. I don't recommend vinegar on the skin. However, a little inn bath water won't hurt (say about half a cup). I recommend Oz-Oil for the skin. Oxygen is what the skin needs.

    Q: I recently purchased your Parasite and Worm Kit and wanted to know what grains were good to eat during or after the cleanse. I eat Bulgur, brown rice, black rice, couscous, gold and brown flax seed and ground provisions i.e. yams, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, turnips and etc. Are these ok to eat during the Parasite and Worm Kit or after? Is apple cider or balsamic vinegar ok for consumption? My Queen and I look forward to removing all the parasites form our temple and projecting the increased vibration. Continue to shine the light.

    A:

    Stay RAW while removing the parasites! If you stay mostly RAW, then on a few days you can engage yourself in some of the foods you mention below (maybe once a week)! But RAW is best! Apple Cider Vinegar is the BEST vinegar to use!

    Q: I been have pain in my throat on the adams apple, and it feels like a line in there like something is out of place. Maybe it could be vein, and I can kinda feel it in the center of my chest.

    A:

    It could be a goiter (possibly). It could also be a sign that you are not expressing yourself on a higher level. As well as the throat is the site of the 5th Chakra - the seat of communication and higher expression. Are you not expressing yourself - your higher truth, your principles? Your Thyroid gland could also be communicating with you for more Iodine. Recommended Dherbs.com products include Thyroid Formula, Iodine Phosphate, Electric Greens Cell Food, and 5th Chakra Elixir.

    Q: My daughter is currently taking Gingko Biloba + Gotu Kola (1 capsule), Magical Alchemical Elixir (2 drops twice daily), Cardio-Vascular Formula (3 capsules), Brain Tuner (3 capsules) and children detox from Dherbs. However, she still experience palpitation + mild seizure (raising of hands) every morning upon waking up. She experience mild fits once a day usually in her sleep/nap and get a severe seizure once every 10-12 days also during her sleep/nap. She was also diagnosed as Asperger Syndrome when she was seven and has improved considerably but not able to focus and easily get irritated. She likes to flipflop her hands a lot and always in wonderland during class. Not able to understand and totally lost in class though she has a very good memory. I also bring her to temple every week to pray and seek spiritual guidance and apply Reiki to her everyday. At present I just do not know what else to do to control her seizure and morning palpitation. Will Epson salt bath help in her epilepsy and anise powder water help in her palpitation. Your guidance and help is much appreciated.

    A:

    Something is going on while she's sleeping (visiting another realm). It sounds like it could be something from a past-life. Consider placing crystals near her bed and under pillow. Crystals such as amethyst, selenite, angelite, quartz, turquoise, black tourmaline, pink or purple lepidolite, lapis lazuli, sodalite, etc.

    Q: I am currently taking Fibroid Buster and I would like to know should I take the elixir for the second chakra or should I take another elixir? Please explain a little more about how I can complement the different herbs with the elixirs for the chakras. I am very new to the chakra system however I understand that if your chakras are blocked it manifests itself in your physical body. I also suffer from nasal polyps and allergies. Please give me a formula that will help me best in your opinion.

    A:

    I recommend you take the 2nd Chakra elixir. The elixir helps YOU to open up your chakra. You have all the power, not the elixir. The elixir is just a tool. A closed chakra means many things and yes, it will result in some physical ailment in the area the chakra is located in.

    2nd chakra ailments deal with emotions, sexuality, and relationships. Most women are damaged in one or more or all of these things which shuts down the chakra energy and eventually manifest in some kind of female reproductive area pathology like fibroid tumors.

    In all honesty, you would do well to detox your whole body ? BE WHOLISTIC, don't isolate! Detoxing helps to open up all the chakras of the body.

    Look into the Fibroid Buster kit as well. Read some of our free articles too.
