How To Take Herbs

herbal-capsules

We get a lot of calls and emails about how to take our herbal supplements. All herbal supplements should be taken orally, and the amount of capsules you take will vary if you are taking individual products or participating in a cleanse. To provide some more information, here are common questions we get asked about taking herbs.

 

How many herbs should I take from a specific formula?

Each Dherbs formula instructs how many capsules to take per day.

  • For Individual Products: Each bottle instructs a person to take 3 capsules per day*. You can take all 3 capsules of a formula at one time during the day, or divide those 3 capsules up and take them throughout the day. It is usually better to take them at once so that the herbs can be more effective. Regardless of the time of day, always take the capsules with alkaline or distilled water
  • For Cleanses: When you are cleansing, each bottle instructs you to take 5 capsules from each formula every day of the cleanse. For the Full Body Cleanse, for example, you should be taking a total of 30 capsules a day because there are 6 formulas. Take 5 capsules from Formula 1 and continue taking 5 from each formula until you are done taking formula 6. Repeat this process every day until the cleanse is over.

*Our Woman’s Choice formula is the exception and calls for taking 7 capsules a day.

 

Can I take less than the instructed amount of capsules each day?

Three capsules are the recommended amount for the average person, but some of our formulas are more potent than others and can be more intense for certain individuals. In this case, it is acceptable to only take one to two capsules. If there is an improvement after taking fewer capsules, then continue taking that amount.

NOTE: During the Full Body Cleanse or any other cleanse, you may feel the need to reduce the dosage. Five capsules may be too many, especially for beginners. It is best to contact a Dherbs customer service representative if you feel that you need to reduce the amount of capsules. Every representative can help you find a regimen that works for your body. It’s important to know that taking fewer capsules while cleansing will extend the cleansing period.

 

Can I take several different formulas at the same time?

Dherbs does not advise combining different herbs at the same time. If, however, you decide to take two or three of our formulas, you can do so, but you need to take the capsules at least 2-3 hours apart. For example, you could take 3 capsules of Hair, Skin & Nails formula in the morning and take our Metabolism Booster a couple hours later. Just make sure that you don’t combine those formulas and take them together.

NOTE: The Dherbs cleanses are a perfect example of taking different formulas, but spaced out throughout the day. We never tell you to take 15 or 20 capsules in one sitting. As the regimen in the booklets suggest, you space the capsules about 2-3 hours apart.

 

If the herbs are too potent, can I temporarily stop taking them?

Before discontinuing the use of herbs, we recommend that you contact a Dherbs customer service representative in order to better assist you with the product(s). This is only because some people mistake detoxing symptoms as side effects. However, you can stop taking the herbs if you feel overwhelmed. Make sure to stick to the dietary regimen while on a break from the herbal supplements if you are cleansing.

 

I don’t like taking capsules. Is there another way to take the capsules?

Yes. Certain herbs may have a very strong taste, which is why we don’t recommend emptying them in water. The best alternative way to consume herbs is by emptying the contents of the capsules into freshly made juices or smoothies.

 

I like drinking herbal tea. How many cups should I drink?

Herbal teas are very safe to drink, so there is no limit to how much someone should drink. Certain teas, like chamomile, may make you feel sleepy so you may want to save those teas evening consumption.

 

If you ever have any questions or are confused about taking herbs, please don’t hesitate to email info@dherbs.com, or give us a call toll free at (866) 434-3727.

    Q: Liquid verses capsules; Which one will allow more weight loss?

    A: The difference between the capsule version of the Full Body Cleanse and the Liquid Cleanse is within its potency. The Liquid Cleanse is less potent due the extraction of herbs being converted from plant to liquid form. This information is included on the product page of the Liquid Cleanse.  The capsules are always going to produce better results.  You can exchange the product if you like, it would need to be within 15 days of receiving it.

    Q: Hello, I'm very interested in your Full Body Cleanse programs, but I'm confused, as to what program would be best for me. I have a lot of trouble with taking herbs in pill or capsule form. It's either extremely hard for me to get them down, or they just pop right back up. I was interested in the Full body cleanse in the capsule form, after reading the description on your site, but I don't know if I should buy it in Children's Detox & just take more than the recommended dose (I'm 27 yrs. old), or should I buy the Full Body Cleanse Tea, is the tea the same as the capsules, is it as effective as the capsules? When doing the cleanse can you eat steamed veggies? Will I see gallstones in my poop? How many capsules, how often? Can I open the capsules, & put them in tea? Do you have any advice on vitamins, whole food supplements?

    A:

    We offer a liquid alternative Full Body Liquid Cleanse for those that have trouble swallowing capsules. You may also order the regular Full Body Cleanse and open adn empty the content of the capsules into water or fresh fruit juice.

    During the cleanse, we recommend an all RAW FOODS diet. Vegetables should be eaten raw, and not steamed, as to retain their nutritional content.

    In the Full Body Cleanse (with capsules), there are 6 formulas to take 2-3 hours apart, 5 capsules at a time.

    Q: I purchased the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN kit. I began taking the regimen of capsules. For breakfast I had water and a banana. For lunch I ate a homemade vegetable soup (chicken broth and veggies). By 2:00 p.m. I began to regurgitate profusely. What did I do wrong? Should I expect to be physically ill after taking the capsules?

    A:

    Chicken broth? That's animal-based! No animal products, Beloved! If you continue to vomit lower the dosage of the capsules from 5 down to 2 or 3 (for a few days and then work yourself back up).

    Q: Hello, I've been following the cleanse as it says in the book. My baby now refuses to drink from my breasts I’m so upset. He's been crying constantly for two days. I've been ill and vomiting constantly for the same amount of time. This is no coincidence. Today I've only drank water as the thought of anything else makes me feel ill. Every glass of water I've drank I've vomited. I feel so weak and sad The cleansing is just potent on your system. Take a day or two off and resume the cleanse again but only by taking 2-3 capsules at a time, not 5 at a time. Yes, others have experienced what you're experiencing. Follow the advice above and you'll be fine. What are you eating also? I would like to know. Thank you!

    Q: I received the herbs I ordered from you - thanks so much! I have a couple of questions about them. My husband will be taking the Adrenal Glands Complex - it says to take three capsules/day - should they be taken all at once or one at three different times? Also, for the full body cleanse: Having done detox programs before where I eat mainly fruits, juices, and salads, I am a bit concerned about losing weight. I have been a vegan for 3 three years (50-75% raw), am already at the low end of normal weight for my height (using BMI), and do not particularly want or need to lose weight. Do you have any suggestions?

    A:

    1. The Adrenal Glands Complex should be taken all at once (3 capsules at once is better) though he is free to spread the capsules out throughout the day.

    2. Your body will only lose the amount of weight that it needs do. If your body does not need to, it will not. The Cleanse only performs to restore your body to its optimal weight and state. Also, on our Full Body Cleanse, you are able to eat as many fresh fruits and vegetables, and raw nuts and seeds as you wish. Have plenty of healthy fats like avocado and coconut products  for more sustenance.

    Q:

    A: Fibroids develop from certain foods within the diet such as sugar, dairy, certain meats and other processed foods.  When your body doesn't expel waste properly the tumors can develop. We always recommend doing the Full Body Cleanse followed by the Fibroid Cleanse, especially for large fibroids.  Both cleanses require you to adjust your diet, which is a major part in getting rid of the tumors.  The Full Body Cleanse eliminates the toxins and waste from your body and detoxes all of your major organs.  The body is always more receptive to healing when your overall health is in a better state.  The Fibroid Cleanse includes multiple formulas that helps the tumors shrink. You can continue with the Fibroid Formula after cleansing.

    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.
