Herbal Tonic For Inner Peace

0-616581842-fotolia-63867465-subscription-monthly-m

Cultivating inner peace takes practice, effort, and tools, especially in this busy, toxic world.

I’ve created a daily ritual of calming meditation and introspection so that I can approach each day more peacefully. Recently, I added a tonic to the mix. Sipping it before I meditate helps me get into the right mindset.

The days that I don’t want to sit on my meditation pillow, this tonic is simply a treat I look forward to. It gets my head in the right place to begin the day, even when my mind is telling me I have more important things to do.

The benefits of the ingredients are incredible. Here are a few:

1. Gynostemma tea is calming and spirit-lifting.

2. Reishi offers immunity support, improves sleep, and acts as a mild tranquilizer for the central nervous system.

3. Pearl powder is mind-calming, peace-giving and acts as a natural beauty product for hair, skin and nails.

3. Cacao is a mood enhancer

4. Ghee, known as “the elixir of healing,” is an ultimate anti-inflammatory food.

5. Dates are high in polyphenols and help remove free radicals in the body.

6. Cinnamon reduces anxiety, depression and stress.

This recipe is for my special homemade tonic is below. You can purchase all the ingredients at most health stores or online.

    Q: I know your very busy, but I would be very appreciative if you could help me in any way that you can. I'm 22 with a 7 month old baby, with no support from my family. Over the last 3 months the father decided that he doesn't love me anymore, and has done an obscene about of things to disrespect me. Which leaves me hurt, and stressed out! I'm mentally, spiritually, and physically drained. I have no peace of mind, and I tend to fall in and out of depression. I feel like I'm going to breakdown, and the tears just won't stop falling. I'm trying to keep it together for my baby. Internally, I've been hurt so bad, I just feel like giving up. How can you love someone one minute, and the next not care for them at all? How do I deal with her father? I'm so tired of being the bigger person, and trying to work through things. He just doesn't care at all, and he makes no effort to even try. He then turns around and says, "He cares about his daughter". I try to explain to him that our relationship affects her, but he always has an answer for everything. I don't mean to dampen you with my problems, but I would appreciate it if you could not only hear me, but feel me and what I'm going through. Every little bit helps

    A:

    Greetings, Beloved! You are upset because you expect something and expectation is your problem. You are expecting something beyond your control, expecting something coming from another person you can't control. Just do you and let karma take care of this dude. You just can't up and not love someone anymore. He's either saying that so as to bounce from the scene (leave) and his responsibilities or he never loved you in the first place and perhaps used you for his own purposes of sexual gratification and you ended up getting pregnant. At either rate, just do you and focus on you - what you desire for you and your child. Think positive! Let go of the situation involving this dude. Start on it TODAY! The dude is selfish and creating karma! Release him! You can't make a person do something that is not in them to do.

    Q: I pray this message finds you in perfect peace and harmony. As a new customer to Dherbs and a new student of herbal healing, I have an inquiry. I have always had difficulty swallowing pills, even today in my adulthood, so I just purchased the anti-viral elixir instead of the pills. Will this be as effective?

    A:

    It sure will. Extracts work faster than capsules because they are liquid and enter the bloodstream from under the tongue. Capsules are more potent and stay in the body longer as they break down in the stomach. However, both are effective.

    Q: I had some problems with my Menses this month. Kindly suggest me and please help me out. Last month I had my periods on 2nd of July it ended within 5 days (normally I have periods for 7 days). On 13th of July I had sex with my husband that caused slight bleeding for 2 days. This month I am having clotting (during my menses time) no menses. Doctor gave me a tonic (contraindicatory in pregnancy) to have my periods. Now I?m having my periods properly but when I stopped having my tonic again the clotting starts. Could u please lemme know the probable reasons for this.

    A:

    Your health situation is called DYSMENORRHEA (dysfunctional menses) which means your hormonal system is impaired. The clotting is a good sign because your uterus is expelling old, toxic waste which would otherwise become cancerous if it was to stay in your body.

    The meds(tonic) is bringing the menses back but stopping the beneficial clotting. This is dangerous! You need both the menses and the clotting and doctors cannot help you here. Dherbs has the ideal remedy for you. We recommend that you perform the Full Body Cleanse for 20 days. After the cleanse, perform the Female Cleanse for 20 days. After these two kits, your menses may be normalized without any need for medicine.

    After the two cleanses, take 3 capsules of Menstrual Cycle Formula and Female Hormonal formula and drink 1-2 cups of Female Health Tea daily and you will greatly benefit your ailment and overall health.

    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!

    Q: Peace, could you recommend a combo of your formulas would be for my 21 month old. She is breastfed, doesn't eat sweets or drink pop, but has tooth decay on her top 4 teeth. What can I buy to stop the decay?

    A:

    It may be genetic. Give the baby organic calcium so the teeth can repair from the inside out. However, the child may be genetically predisposed.

    Q: Peace, and Blessing Brethren! I have a question, did you see on You Tube a young man, who was crying blood? He has had a MRI done, and plenty of other tests. This is crazy. I don't know if this is real, or fake. Can you elaborate on this, and what may be causing this condition?

    A:

    I didn't see the video, and would need more information on the person's condition before elaborating. Otherwise I'd be speculating and wasting my time, as I'm in the midst of writing more articles that will be posted to Dherbs later this month. The blood may have been coming from his lacrymal glands which produces our tears.

    Q: News Article re justice of the peace not marrying interracial couple. Greetings! I wanted to know have you heard about this news article coming out of Los Angeles? I laughed because I remembered recently reading your article about the marriage license. I'd thought I share this with you.

    A:

    Yes, I have heard of it! Someone posted it in our community forums. It is ironic, but it only conveys the truth of my article on the marriage license. Hilarious!

    Q: I think it is interesting that you spend a lot of time pushing your personal opinions and share limited advice. What do you understand about integrity and professionalism? Or even respect for others? I do not see it. If people are looking to you for help why do you spit on their problems? I was researching your site to help a client resolve their addiction to smoking. I have to say I was sadly disappointed to read your article. It is not helpful nor is it informative. In fact it enforces shame and negativity on those who seek help and positive life changes. I would hope you could restructure your article to benefit all. It would be beneficial to check out higher consciousness sites on herbal healing. I wish for you in this moment to find peace and resolve your anger and prejudice that is so apparent in your articles. Love, light and peace.

    A:

    YOUR perception is not MY reality, Love. I am doing me and you do you. Tell you what: you do what I am failing to do or what you feel I am failing to do. This would be more appropriate. Pick up the ball where you deem it dropped. Talk is cheap and actions speak. I have done the actions and am doing them (read the reviews and testimonies on Dherbs.com). It speaks for itself. My new smoking article will reflect where I am presently, but it will still blast the ignorant cigarette smokers. One can't just blame government and the cigarette industry for the actions of the dumb cigarette smoker. Dumb and weak Americans must also foot partial blame, actually most of it, because they had a choice and there was no gun to their head forcing them to smoke. These people were simply weak and stupid and not to mention unconscious. Period! It doesn't sound nice but it's factual and truthful. I don't sugar coat the truth because sugar is a poison! The first article was written 6-7 years ago and that's why it's so brief. Thank you for visiting the #1 website in all-natural herbal products and raw uncompromising information that people all across the world are eating up and just can't get enough of.

    Q: How are you? I see you will be in the Atlanta area soon. Anywho... I finished both Detoxes. waiting on the results from the test. I am doing maintenance now. Being that I am a single mom this healing process has been hard finically. But it is well worth it. I bought the ANTI-VIRAL FORMULA (taking 3x per day), I bought the RAINFOREST TONIC TEA ( wow) and I couldn't afford the immune booster so I am taking a store brand. So..here is what I am feeling now. Lower back still has a discomfort, I little piece of my heel is still numb and the slightest noise makes me jump. I wanted to know if the nerve pills will help with the jumping and also my back. I am taking the sulper for the lower back discomfort but not a major difference yet. Also as I am typing this note to you..my left arm feels like a burning feeling. When I rub it I feel the sensation. Do I need to get the iron pills or blood & lym. pills? I hope to hear from you soon.

    A:

    I'd recommend NERVES FORMULA as well as CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FORMULA. Consider seeing a chiropractic as well. If you can't afford capsules, consider drinking the herbal teas.

    Q: I have herpes simplex two along with HIV. My viral load on HIV is undetectable. I am currently taking the â€VENEREAL BUSTERâ€, ANTI-VIRAL FORMULA and the RAINFOREST TONIC. What other herbs should I take to get rid of the HIV and Herpes? Is there anything else that I should be doing to eliminate both viruses from my body?

    A:

    Why are you targeting herpes and not your whole body for whole body health? You are looking at herpes and viral infections all wrong. Don't go after disease. Go after the whole body - cleansing it! You don't take herbs to get rid of anything. You take herbs for cleansing and nutrition. To get rid of herpes, read our article "GENITAL HERPES" under our Articles section. Healing is holistic, beloved. You must work on mind, body, and spirit, not go after a specific disease. This is erroneous thinking!

    Q: Peace, I am very interested in using your products. However, I want to be sure that I am on the right track. I have a serious problem eliminating waste from my body. My bowels do not move naturally. I have to take something to get any movement. Recently, I visited with a Chinese Herbalist who informed me that I "had" a weak spleen. I began taking Four Gentlemen Teapils along with Yin Chi female performance for energy and smooth move cap. My energy improved tremendously but the bowel movements were minimal. On my next visit he took me off of the Four Gentlemen and put me on Gui Pi Wan Teapils and a detox. I'm not real sure about the contents of the detox caps but my bowels did move a bit more but still not on their own when I finished the detox. Now I am at the point where I feel good still with some bloating in my upper abdomen, very uncomfortable. I would like to work with someone who can help me to understand how to heal my body. Thus, my husband mentioned your name a couple of months ago. He heard about you on a radio show. And, I have a 10-year old daughter who's body is preparing for menstruation. She complains about mild stomach aches more like cramps and some headaches during certain times of the month. I want to know what I can do to assist her body as it transitions into young woman hood. I am thinking of your full body cleanse first. I would love to maybe speak with you and put myself on the best path possible. Thank you.

    A:

    Give your daughter MOON CYCLE FORMULA and FEMALE HORMONAL FORMULA (1-2 capsules daily). And/or drink 1 cup of FEMALE HEALTH TEA daily.

    Q: Peace, and light good brother I just read your scorpio article I"m glad you wrote it. I was born with a hernia, I had surgery when I was young. I sweat a lot sometimes, and also my best friends is a Scorpio, both Nov 17, 1978. But, also have ever heard of prune belly syndrome, I suffer from that, it makes my stomach kinda like a rubber band with the elastic wore out.

    A:

    Thank you, beloved! Glad you enjoyed the article. No, I've never heard of prune belly syndrome but I will research and perhaps write an article on it. Stay tuned to Dherbs.com!

    Q: PEACE AND BLESSING TO YOU, My 14 yr. old daughter was diagnosed with elevated blood pressure. She is not overweight, she is active and healthy. My question to you is what would be a good herb for her she is now taking norvasc 5mg. She still has headaches. She has mostly every test done. Even to the point I put her in a study and they had a hard time getting blood from her. When they stuck the needle in her arm they proceeded to draw blood, and the blood just shot back in her veins. I know I must sound like a mad woman but I did see this with my own two eyes. Never the less I am in need of something that doesn't require dealing with these vampires. I really would like to know of something that will cure this she is to young to be going through this. Signed (worried about my little aloha)

    A:

    Little daughter needs to have her diet changed (vegetarian-vegan diet) and perform the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) and drink the DETOX TEA. Diet change is key!!!!! Please read: â€HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE (HYPERTENSION)â€

    Q: Thank you once again for your advice and your article on love. I was in so much pain when I emailed you all I could think of was that maybe death would give me peace. As your articles say, heartache, the broken light cord, hurts something terrible in the most literal sense. Your articles give me so much comfort and peace, you are truly blessed. I read everything is Okay as often as I can to remind me to go with the flow of life. Since your first email I have started working with Rose quartz, Rhodocrosite, and Adventurine. I've started practicing Qi Gong and this is helping to put me in tune with who I really am, divine. I cannot say it has been all peaches and cream, the journey up has been bumpy- I have to read and re-read, make the conscious decisions to let go of old patterns. Thank you for your love. Thank you for taking the time to reach back out to a stranger when you did not have to. I am on your site now ready to make my second purchase. There are two 4th Charka elixirs for sale, which one should I purchase? The abundance elixir- is this meant to bring abundance or change my thinking on abundance? I apologize if this question sounds ignorant but I'm slightly confused. One last thing Dherbs.com, you speak of a Three in One modality and advise your reader to get one. What is this and how can I get one? Also, how can I schedule a Charka Consult with you? I know this is a great deal of questions and comments, thank you so much, so very much, for your time.

    A:

    Thank you so much for your e-mail, beloved! Much obliged! Glad to hear Dherbs is helping you on your wonderful journey. Death is never the answer, Beloved. Please read my new article on â€SUICIDEâ€, which explains why (if you haven't already). In re: Charka elixirs I would suggest the FOURTH CHAKRA #2 the one for the Heart as compared to "healing." My friend Julie no longer offers the 3-in-1 sessions, which were so beneficial. However, we still offer charka balancing and can do a reading by phone ($55) if you're interested.
