Herb – How Is It Pronounced?

0-726516473-herb1

The term “herb” can be pronounced phonetically as “urb” or “hurb”.

Most people in the world, especially the British, say “hurb”.

However, in the United States, we have been taught to say “urb”. While it may be correct to pronounce “herb” with a silent “h”, it doesn’t make the other pronunciation wrong.

Many people have been conditioned to pronounce words one particular way. Rather than trying to understand where the pronunciation of a word comes from, most people believe that there is only one correct way to pronounce a word. Repeatedly hearing the pronunciation of a word makes it seem correct even if its not.

Thank you for reading!

    Q: I have periodic palpitations. I've noticed mostly with gas and after eating. My EKG and echocardiogram all came back okay. However, the cardiologist did mention that the palpitations were from the lower chamber and he could go in to correct it, if it becomes bothersome. My question, is there an association between colon gas and heart palpitations and are there herbs I can take to correct this? They don't hurt, but are worrisome at times.

    A:

    I recommend that you start working on your colon. Perform either the FULL BODY DETOX or the DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. These will greatly help your condition and you will notice the change. Individual formulas that are good for you afer the detox include ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, DIGEST AID, CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA, and COLON FORMULA. Don't forget diet! Your diet is too acid-forming. You need to eat more alkaline foods (fruits and vegetables). Cut back on the meat and dairy products. Dietary change is very important for you!

    Q: I'm 17 years of age and go to a boarding high school in Florida. I just moved here from L.A. Over the summer. I've always been passionate about picking up valuable information that is not taught in schools. Even though I've always gotten good grades in all classes, I have always had a dislike for school. I feel like it is trapping me, because I have very little time to study topics that are truly beneficial such as law, herbs, history and many other topics. I just wanted to give you a brief background image of me; bottom line is this... I want to be part of what you are doing. I know you probably have so many positions filled. And I've never been materialistic and never liked school, but I also understand that if I want to get out in the world on my own right now I need to have a situation where I can make a sufficient amount of money to support myself. So I'm just letting you know I'm very passionate about helping people heal themselves and I would be very committed to what you are trying to accomplish in terms of healing people mentally and physically. I feel so thankful because most people don't get the opportunity to come across TRUE herbalism, TRU history, TRUE law, etc, until they are deep into adulthood, if ever. And I feel like I must fulfill my opportunity starting NOW. Because if I don't, I would be failing the mission I was incarnated here to do. Peace

    A:

    Greetings, Beloved! You have recognized at a very young age that school is a waste of time as measured against the subjects of your heart. Make the time to study the topics of your interest. It's well worth it, Beloved! I did it for many years of my life and when I was out of school and got into knowledge, I spent almost whole days studying the interests of my desires which has led me to the life I am now living. I'm glad I followed my heart. In regards to Dherbs, unfortunately Beloved, I am an Inter-net company only and thus have no positions available. What is your zodiac sign? Maybe we can help you to find work that is suitable to your interests. Your 10th House explains the area's best for you work-wise. Hey, thanks for reaching out, Beloved! One day I would like to employ thousands of people. If you ever want to talk or need advice, give me a call!

    Q: I have just discovered some of your articles last night. I have been reading a lot of stuff by David Wolfe lately, and pretty much everything thing you say agrees with eachother. You are a very intelligent person. I was wondering if you had written any books, or plan on writing any. I will buy them. Keep spreading the good word, you really are a true healer.

    A:

    Much appreciated from the heart, Beloved! Thank you for sharing that! I have a few e-books right now, including "The Mental Science Manual," "The Money, Wealth, and Prosperity", "The Love Manual" and a few others. You can find them on the website in the on-line store under "e-books." They'll all be published in the future into little books. I'm presently working on "Discovering Your Life's Purpose", so as to help people transition into their life's higher purpose. I quote David Wolf in my new article "Beware Hybrid and Genetically Engineered Foods" which will be on the Dherbs.com Home Page in about 2 weeks.
