Spiralized Veggies, Zucchini & Kale Apple Slaw

0-891856522-spiralizer-zucchini
With spiralizing, it takes just a couple tries to get the hang of it. What should you do with the handles? How do you place the veggie on the actual machine? Which way? How fast should you turn the handle? 

The first couple times I spiralized, my results were plenty of cute, bouncy noodles, but there were also a bunch of half-moon-shaped zucchini slices. Womp, womp.

Still, to this day, there are always those stragglers… the half-moons. The little slices of vegetable that look like clipped fingernails. So, what do you do with them? Throw them away? No way! Today, I’m sharing with you my favorite dish to make with those wretched half-moons.

Whenever I spiralize, I always stick these half moon shaped slices in a plastic bag and stick them in the fridge. Later on, I make salads and slaws with them to snack on during the following day! 

So how do you make half moon slices on purpose? Easy! Just slice half way through your vegetable or fruit and put it through the spiralizer, as you normally would. Simple as that!

    Q: I have not had my period in about a year and a half - ever since I went off of birth control. I recently saw an intuitive healer, who recommended your herbs and said that I should follow your program to detox from the birth control pills. However, after looking through your list of products, I was unclear as to whether I should be doing the full body cleanse or the female cleanse. Which would you recommend?

    A:

    Try both cleanses! The Full Body Cleanse works with your entire system and all of its eliminative channels to eliminate impurities and restore to optimal function, while the Female Cleanse focuses more predominantly on helping. to provide essential nutrients conducive to female sexual reproductive health

I am not sure what is happening, but would like a more normal cycle if that is possible. I am 43 years old. Can you tell me if the herbs I ordered are the correct herbs? Should take them together? What else might you recommend?

    Q: You suggested too me to do the Total Women Cleanse and then to use Moon Cycle for 6 months. Now after using Total Women Cleanse I have really felt changes in my health but my menstrual cycle has not yet appeared. Sir my doubt is that after the use of Moon Cycle the menstrual cycle would be appearing.

    A:

    Increase the daily dosage (6-12 capsules), drink Dherbs Female Health tea (1-3 cups daily), and BE PATIENT! The body does not respond to time, a figment of the human mind. BE PATIENT with your body and healing! Focusing on not receiving the menses will keep it at bay and prevent it from coming back. You must be in the space of ALLOWING so as to allow the menses to return on its own and when it is ready. Body knows best! Rest assured, Beloved! Everything is okay!

    Q: Hello I am on day TWO of 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE;. May I eat a half cup rolled organic rolled oats a day.

It's 1 tablespoon of Spirulina Powder, 2 tablespoons Psyllium Husk , 2 tablespoons Aloe Vera 1/4 cup of apple juice and 2 tablets of 450 mg Cascara Sagrada ? Look forward to your response.

    Q: I just purchased the Fibroid Buster Tea, Moon Cycle Tea, and Female Health Tea. Should I be concerned with any of these teas interacting with medications, such as Spironolactone?

    A:

    Yes! Drugs and herbs don't mix. Consuming both, drugs, and herbs defeats the purpose of taking herbs. Herbs are for healing. Drugs are toxic and poisonous.

    Q: I have another question. My eight year old son was born with a server lazy eye. Doctors cut his lid and put a strip in his eyebrow to hold up the lid. he sleeps with one eye half open. At the end of his eyebrow at the tip it will not heal. no matter what we put on it it will always bleed. It will form a scab for a while and then it will open up again. My question is why will that place on his eyebrow not heal and what can I do to make it heal? he got the surgery when he was two years old.

    A:

    If it won't heal some nutrient is missing! Try MSM SULFUR, KHEMETIAN GOLD, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, and OZ OIL. Sounds like the doctors did a great deal of damage!

    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 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: I am a 33-year-old mother of a 2-year-old little boy. I live in Northern, New Jersey. Please recommend a holistic doctor for adults and a holistic pediatrician in the Northern New Jersey area. I also am having issues with fibroids. I had multiple fibroids removed last summer. Yesterday I went to my OB/GYN and had a histosonogram, which the doctor tells me it shows I have one polyp. In my mind I feel that this is something that should have been taken care of when I had the myomectomy. Is it possible they missed this polyp?????or could it have grown since last summer???I am beginning to feel like I am being butchered by the doctor. Please recommend a good holistic OB/GYN in the NJ area. Also, I do not want to have this polyp surgically removed. I read about your formula called FIBROID TUMORS...it dissolves uterine and ovarian fibroid tumors..also FEMALE HORMONAL FORMULA, MOON CYCLE FORMULA, and others. At the moment I am just all over the place... Please help me to save my body!! Also, since the birth of my son I only buy organic whole foods and seafood. HELP!!!!!!

    A:

    Sorry for the delayed response! I am unfamiliar with New Jersey and holistic healers in this State. Check Black Web Portal (www.blackwebportal.com).

    Yes, sounds like they missed one polyp! That's doctors for you though!

    In re Fibroids, we have 3-week Fibroid Buster kit and regimen coming out early next month. I recommend this regimen for your fibroids.

    Read our articles i.e. Fibroid Tumors, Sea Food:Bugs of the Ocean, etc. Great reading and very insightful information!

    Q: Yes indeed, the Full Body Cleanse Program truly works. I am so very glad that I persevered through the program. I took it like a champ after my first two initial days and the more my body expelled, the easier it was for me to complete the program. I look and feel wonderful!! I have to tell you that I really appreciate you and all the inspiration that I have received from the Dherbs staff. You are all top quality, just like your products. I'll be looking out for the weight loss regimen because I know your company doesn't half-step. Therefore, I'm bound to have results with following the instructions. I will always be one of your regular customers, as well as a walking testimony to all I meet.

    A:

    Thank you, we appreciate your kind words.

    Q: I have been using your Hemorrhoid buster for some time now, on and off for about. I still haven't been rid of my internal hemorrhoid which I was diagnosed with over or about 2 months ago, and having it is annoying the fuck out of me. It's not itching or bleeding, just knowing it's still there is pissing me off. I'm running out of patience and OTC drugs and surgery are COMPLETELY out of the question for me. I just need EXPLICIT details on how many more of these Hemorrhoid Busters I need and whether I should customize the doses I take, because I was just taking them as directed on the label. Every time I took them when I started the bottle over a month ago was with 4 capsules 2-3 times a day. 11/4 is when I started up again because on 10/30 I finished a full 5-day fast and colon cleanse (I did that first because I thought, probably erroneously, that it would make taking the H-Busters easier and promote quicker healing. Sorry if this message and everything seems all disjointed but I've tried to give you every detail I could. I'm losing patience and JUST WANT TO BE RID OF THIS! It can't be that hard---the diagnosis was that it was only about half the size of my doctor's fingertip, according to him. Please, PLEASE help. Again it's not burning, itching, or BLEEDING at all, I just want to get rid of it, and the label on the bottle of the H-Buster said it addresses every hemorrhoid condition guaranteed. Please reply when you get this, thank you!

    A:

    Sir, I understand your sentiments but they are NOT helping your situation. Not at all. Healing requires patience! Your were patient in your lifestyle that caused the hemorrhoids to develop in the first place, so you must be patient in their healing.

    Your anxiety in wanting a quick healing is actually impeding your healing. Just go with the flow. Be in the now.

    To enhance and facilitate the healing, try this regimen:

    3 capusles BOWEL MOVER
    3 capsules SEN FEN
    3 capsules COLON FORMULA
    3 capsules INTESTINAL JANITOR
    3 capsules HEMORRHOID BUSTER

    1 glass of aloe vera juice (1/3 aloe and 2/3 water)

    1 cup of Prune Juice (before bedtime)

    Perform this every day, Sir!

    Try performing enemas every 3 days as well.

    Stop focusing on what you don't want (hemorrhoids) and instead focus on what you desire (healing). The Universe grants you what you do want and what you don't want, so just focus on what you do want and you will get it.

    Q: I'm sorry to bother you with these problems, but I?m trying to avoid the doctor as much as possible. Although I had seen (two of them) in the past, but neither were able to find the problem. Approximately an inch and a half above my naval (belly button), there?s a small knot. It's not always sore when I slightly press it...sometimes it is. I even had a couple of ultra sounds performed. Nothing was found. Both doctors (including myself) initially thought it was a hernia. But it ended up not being the case. But it seems like every other week it flares up so bad, it have me bending over (for a short period) only to ease the pain in my stomach. The knot would also slightly protrude. This would continue a few hours. Is there anything you would suggest...besides surgery of course? I?m sure there?s an herb or two that can be taken to rectify this problem. I?m just not able to find it. Now about my brother... He's losing weight without an explanation. He?s been to a few doctors but neither were able to find the problem. He even had an AIDS test...which had come back negative. He sometimes sweat from his face for no apparent reason. When he coughs, it?s sometimes long and aggressive.

    A:

    1. I recommend the 3-week Full body Detox for your navel protrusion which seems to flare up due to acidity (acid causes inflammation). Also get a few colonics performed. Make sure you bathe in sea salt from now on with every bath you take.

    2. In re your brother, a host of things could be responsible for him releasing weight. It could be parasites, cancer, or some auto-immune disorder. I recommend that he too clean his temple (Full Body Detox) and try our Anorexia-Rid formula. A clean body always acts right. Watch your diets too.

    Q: I have 2 more days left on the Total Woman Cleanse. I also completed the Full Body Detox in January. I started my cycle a couple of days before starting the Total Womans Cleanse, which lasted approxy 5 days. When my cycle stopped, I began to experience spotting everyday (which I understand is apart of the cleansing process). However, my cycle started again and has lasted for 4 days now, and I experienced some clots and heavy bleeding. I've also been feeling fatigue, as a result of the continuous bleeding. I've had problems with my cycle for several years, and I'm really seeking help in resolving the issue(s). I've had a couple of DNCs, over the past few years which have come back okay (praise God), but I also have an enlarged uterus. I was thinking about ordering the Yoni Formula, Moon cycle, Female Tea, and liquid iron. What do you suggest?

    A:

    Don't be frustrated, Beloved! It will only block you! Consider ordering and reading our "Mental Science Manual" and "Love Manual" and APPLY the principles so as to help you remain positive, calm, and optimistic about your healing. Listen, after the Total Womans Cleanse, perform the Full Body Detox, and then (after you finish the FBD) start taking the Moon Cycle (formula and tea), Female Hormonal Formula, Yoni Formula, and Styptic Formula. Your body is regulating itself. Trust the natural process! Your body is undoing all the harm you did to it, so be patient, and understanding of all that your body has to do on and for your behalf! Okay? Stay positive! Your body is your humble servant!
