0-910273177-fotolia-42320274-subscription-monthly-m

Anyone who’s suffered from them knows that how to get rid of stretch marks is no small task.

Regardless of how healthy you eat or how thin you are to begin with, stretch marks can be inevitable, particularly for women; they are one of the most common occurrences during pregnancy–50-90 percent of women will experience them during or after a pregnancy. There are other causes of stretch marks, too, including rapid weight gain or loss, which can affect both women and men.

Stretch marks can span across the hips, thighs, stomach, and breasts. They can be unforgiving and brutal. There are plenty of ways suggested to avoid getting stretch marks to begin with, such as maintaining a healthy weight, maintaining a healthy and hydrating diet and doing whatever you can to improve skin elasticity (massaging, dry skin brushing, etc.), all of which help to get rid of stretch marks as well.

 When it comes to incorporating a stretch mark cream into your anti-stretch-mark agenda, be sure to use the right one. That is, one that reduces discoloration and keeps the skin moist and healthy.

This recipe incorporates some of the most powerful moisturizers and healing creams out there – cocoa butter, coconut oil, castor oil and sweet almond oil. All are packed with nutrients and minerals and are great for hydrating skin. They are also known to prevent stretch marks in women. The salve has a thick, glossy consistency and should be applied twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening. With this salve in your body care arsenal, you will slowly but surely get rid of stretch marks.

    Q: I am listening to you on Rainbow soul talking about cellulite and stretch marks and it sounds as if you have just given up on the black female race like there is no help for big women.

    A:

    Dherbs.com: I haven't given up on big Black women at all. The fact is that most big Black women BLACK discipline and will not do what is necessary. The simple fact that they blew up in the first place says a lot (i.e. poor self-esteem, low self-image, unhappiness, undisciplined, etc.)

    That is another story though cause I'm not big AT ALL!! but I am a black female.

    Dherbs.com: I'm writing an article soon on Black women and obesity: causes/origins, dangers, and solutions. Now does this sound like I have given up????

    ANYWAY - my question to you is - Since January 8, 2007 I stopped eating meat and I saw a tremendous result in my complaint areas.

    Dherbs.com: Good for you!

    Now I'm pregnant and read that protein develops the babies brain so I started eating meat until I have the baby.

    Dherbs.com: LORD HAVE MERCY!!!! I greatly disagree with this, but it's your choice. I have 3 vegan-vegetarian children. Their mothers didn't eat meat during their pregnancies. You don't have to worry about the development of your baby's brain. The body intelligence has that covered. Meat is not protein unless you eat it raw (but the WHOLE animal must be eaten)!!!

    Is it safe to drink protein shakes to replace the protein instead of eating meat?

    Dherbs.com: You can't get bio-protein from protein shakes. Protein shakes are made from waste products (i.e. radiated soy, whey, etc.). If you really want natural proteon, check out our Bio-Protein we sell. It's 100% all-natural. But remember, protein is in every natural food you eat. How do herbivore animals in the wild get their protein since they don't eat meat???

    Meat for protein is a great conspiracy and propaganda tactic. Read Dherbs articles "PROTEIN PROPAGANDA" and "THE DANGERS OF EATING MEAT."

    Regardless of how you view me, thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!

    Q: My two year-old son is not circumcised and his foreskin is not pulling back is there anything I can do to get his skin to stretch without getting him circumcised because I really don't want to do that. And are there any bath remedies to keeping it clean, right now I give him sea salt baths and thinking about using hydrogen peroxide. Also, It keeps getting red and swollen I gave him antibiotics because it hurts when he urinates. If you could, could you possibly recommend something I could get from a health food store I can't afford to cleanse his body right now.

    A:

    Don't act too fast; sometimes it takes a while before the skin begins to become elastic. The child is only 2. You can clean his foreskin with warm water, sea salt, and tea tree oil (5-8 drops in the bowl of water or bath water) and you can add 1 ounce of hydrogen peroxide if you like. If the skin is red and swollen it's inflamed. Start applying Dherbs.Com HEALING SKIN OIL and this should facilitate healing. Antibiotics are harming the child. He doesn't need antibiotics! Please read our article on "DANGERS OF ANTI-BIOTICS". He'll be alright!

    Q: hello I am thankful for the information you gave on the moles. This does not answer my questions on the metaphysical meaning of the moles, and maybe I did not ask the question correctly. In your birthmark and white spots article you said that every mark had a meaning. My question was, I wanted to know the meaning of the marks. If you could help me with this I would be ever grateful. I have read many of the articles and they have been a big help. I try to study everything I can about metaphysics. I just started a new job in ophthalmology. I am now starting to study iridology with dherbs by my side I can't fail.

    A:

    I don't have the allowable time to write detailed responses, unfortunately (too many inquiries to answer). I save that time for articles. Moles denote things recorded in the etheric blue print that forms the physical body in each new life so clearly the mole denotes a hangover from the past life, i.e. an injury, a cultural mark, being branded, the site of a tumor, etc. An individual must find out the true nature and cause on their own such as undergoing hypnotherapy or past life regression.

    Q: I was recently attacked and stabbed on the street. I was taken to a hospital. There, I was then cut open for apparently no reason, because the bleeding stopped on its own. Now, I have lumps on my stomach, one of which bothers me when I sneeze, and stretch. I asked another doctor what was happening, and he told me it was fat and fibers, and that it wouldn't go away. I dont want to ask another doctor, because I know they'll suggest an operation. Can you give me an alternative route? I'd like to hear what you have to say peace and blessings.

    A:

    There's no herbal alternative to surgery, Beloved! Man, doctors are no joke! They will do anything just to make money. Perform the Full Body Detox, Beloved! Rub Healing Skin Oil on the lumps. Perform the sea salt soak daily. Read our article "Sea Salt Soak." Also, read "The Mental Science Manual."

    Q: I would like to know, if you have any skin care programs, for women age 50 and over. I am going to try the detox progarm as soon as possible. I truly believe that I am going to be very happy with the results. I am 51 years old, and I want to look and feel my best. I have a lot of belly fat, and that makes me feel uncomfortable, because some people will ask me, if I am pregnant. This seems very strange to me, because my stomach seems to be the main place, where all the fat is building up. I desire to have beauty inside and out. I want to be completely whole. If you have tips for skin care and body care, please let me know. Some people say that I look like I am in my forties, however, if I did not have all of this extra body fat, I could really believe what they are saying.

    A:

    The blood needs to be cleansed in order to enhance your skin and eliminate excess fat.

    We would recommend you perform the Full Body Cleanse which can help improve skin complexion, release weight, and detoxify, purify, rejuvenate, and strengthen the body and all of its eliminative channels.

    We also have a Facial Skin Kit that works to naturally restore the health of skin by helping to remove blemishes, hydrate skin, and even out complexion for resilient skin.

    Q: Three years ago I had a surgical procedure done to relieve an 8 - 9 erection. They cut me on both sides of my penis and told I never have another erection again. I immediately started to dissolve the scar tissue with systemic enzymes, and can see a difference in blood flow but nothing close to a penetrate able erection. If I use the pump it attempts to stretch it out close to normal size and girth. But to no avail the blood begins to run right back out of the shaft. I finally found the woman of my dreams, and can't get it up.

    Q: I would like to purchase both the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN and FULL BODY DETOX. I notice that each last for 3 weeks. I need to take it (I'm 38) and so does my 16-year-old daughter, however, my budget allows the purchase of 1 of each of the 2 systems. Is it possible for us to split each system and still receive the same benefits by perhaps adding another one of your supplements into the mix? In other words we would each take the Detox for a week and a half instead of 3 weeks and could possibly stretch it to 2 1/2 - 3 weeks by adding in another supplement. We could do the same with the weight release by stretching the supplements. If it calls for 3 a day, take 2 a day.

    A:

    NOT RECOMMENDED! NOT RECOMMENDED! FULL BODY DETOX. THE DETOX MUST BE TAKEN FOR 20 DAYS FOR THE BENEFITS.

    Q: I want to find out about skin lightening or evening out my skintone. I am a dark skinned 46 year old black female, I do not use bleaching creams because they are cancerous, and I think that it borders on black female self hatred, But I have uneven, and very dry dark skin color, I would like to get my skin all to one tone, and moist and healthy. Do you have any ideas, or recipes for a natural bleaching cream?

    A:

    Skin tone changes based upon life changes, just as your hands change based upon life changes. Live healthy, holistic, and everything will come back into balance. You see, evidently you did something for the skin to become uneven, after all, the skin was not always uneven. Something happened based upon what was going on in your life, and things you were doing and thinking. Go back to that period and reflect and start from there. Do the reverse and the healing will begin.

    Q: Thank you for the cancer info...It is welcome and beyond informative, however, I take issue with your remark that "women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men." Part of me is not surprised--men make comments like this all the time. I chalk it up to ignorance, as men enjoy living their entire lives not having to endure periods, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and lord knows what else. So because a woman does not want to have children--at all, or at a particular time in her life--she wants to be a man?! That's an illogical conclusion you are making. So why are there pregnant women with cancer, some of which who have never taken BC pills? Are women entitled to making any sort of control over their reproductive health? What about women who are infertile, naturally? If they develop cancer, is it because they never gave birth to a child? Are you willing to support all of the children that will result from women not being on Birth Control, since many people cannot afford several children on their incomes? This line of reasoning makes some women think that men really need to get over themselves. I think you have been reading too much Freud. Some women, present company included, appreciate our femininity and everything that encompasses being a woman. At the same time, this is not the dark ages--and even then, women chose not to have children during different times in their lives. Surely you are aware that in non-Western countries women utilize natural herbs to control their reproduction or as abortifacients? I am not advocating abortion; my point is that if you are going to criticize women taking BC pills, you may as well extend this criticism to women naturally preventing pregnancy via alternative means.

    A:

    Birth control pills play a big role in female reproductive cancers. Women would be wise to just accept the fact that they are female by nature and God made them to have (deliver) babies and they should stop trying to compete with and be like men. In attempting to stop or prevent life (birth control), they are ending up losing their very own lives. And the birth control pills cause cancer in areas of the body that denote femininity (breasts, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, uterus and vagina). This is a form of language here. You have disease and female organ(s) which basically means your disease is specifically related to an issue of femaleness or femininity, that's why the disease manifests in these "female" organs. In attempting to be like and compete with males, females compromise their feminine integrity and goddess nature which "eats them up" (anger, frustration, sadness, etc.) inside. When the cancer appears in any female organ, it serves as a sign or sensor that the problem lies on a deeper metaphysical level pertaining to emotions, thoughts and attitude."

    Q: I read that you do not recommend coconut oil, because of its thickness. Do you believe that coconut butter is healthy for human consumption? Thank you all the knowledge you generously share.

    A:

    Actually, coconut oil is healthier for human consumption than coconut butter. Both are derived from a natural food source - the coconut, and thus may be consumed. Now as far as what the most healthiest oil, I don't think we can say it's coconut oil.
