Release Your Inner Tree Hugger For National Love A Tree Day 2018

hugging-tree

 

Trees are more than pretty elements of nature or things that provide shade on a hot day. We owe trees a great debt, even though we are slowly destroying them via environmental pollution and deforestation. Trees work to reduce erosion and help to moderate the climate. They also provide us with oxygen and work to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

 

Tree Fact: The tallest trees in the world are the redwoods, which are abundant in Northern California. Among the towering redwoods is one tree named Hyperion, which is the tallest tree in the world at 379.7 feet tall.

 

You may be wondering how you can celebrate National Love A Tree Day. The easiest thing would be to go outside, walk up to a tree, and hug it. If someone asks you what you are doing, you can tell him or her to love a tree as well to celebrate the day. On the other hand, you can also have a picnic lunch with some friends under a tree.

 

Give Your Tree(s) Some Water:

If you have one or more trees growing in your yard or around your house, make sure that you give the tree(s) plenty of water. Most people who have gardens often neglect watering their trees and favor the veggies or flowers. Soak the base of the tree to provide the roots with much needed nutrition.

 

Plant A Tree:

Plant a tree, people! It’s good for the world! You can plant a citrus tree, stone fruit tree, avocado tree, mango tree, guava tree, or whatever type of tree your heart desires. There’s nothing like walking into your yard and picking fresh fruit from a tree that you grew.

 

Go On A Hike To Appreciate Trees:

There’s nothing like the peacefulness of walking on a trail that is shaded by trees. You feel the sheer magnitude of the trees and are dwarfed their presence.

 

Whatever you decide to do for National Love A Tree Day, make sure to spread the word. Take a picture next to a tree and use the hashtag #LoveATreeDay when you post on social media.

    Q: Good Morning, hope all is well. My 11 yr. old son has a serious problem! The skin between his toes on both feet are peeling, and he has sores. The rest of his feet look fine. Also, on his arms & legs he has black spots. As if he had a mosquito bite, and scratched it. But that's not the case. What is this? I've tried tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar, and a cream from our local herb store for his feet. To this day nothing has helped. I don't give him meds from our so-called doctors. However, I am considering taking him to get a diagnosis. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanking you in advance and have a wonderful day!

    A:

    Please read the article on our site entitled "Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder" as your son is dealing with a blood disorder. Let his feet breathe which can be done by allowing him to wear sandals, or open air shoes. Allow him to soak his feet in warm water with about half a cup of sea salt, and 1 ounce of hydrogen peroxide (for about 30 minutes). After the soak, rub his feet down and in-between his toes with our Healing Skin Oil. Perform daily! Consider having the child completing the Children's Liquid Cleanse.

    Q: Sir, I'm trying to be brave about my situation but because my breast is rock hard and from my nipple to my underarm looks like a tree stump it's very hard to concentrate on anything else. I just don't want to get my breast cut off and I'm just praying that your herbs will help. I started on some herbs when all this started and did not see any changes except for maybe my breast getting worst. I'm not sure if I am asking a question or just merely expressing my feelings and thoughts.

    A:

    Beloved, where thought goes energy flows. You need to work on controlling your concentration. If not, what you fear will appear. This is law! Herbs will take time to heal just as it took time for the problem to develop and eventually manifest. Patience is required for Nature to do her thing. The herbs will help but true healing is within the mind.

    Q: I have completed 2 FULL BODY DETOX kits and I am on the last week of my second FIBRIOD BUSTER CLEANSE AND REGIME. I have experienced 2 head colds and eczema. I use a natty wash for my cold and tea tree oil and olive oil for my skin which has been working. I also notice that I am able to where form fitting clothing again, which was unable to wear due to my stomach being the size of a six month pregnant woman 3 months ago. I do not know if fibroids are shrinking I have not had them measured but I think I'm on the right path. Thank you.

    A:

    Trust your gut and keep on trucking'. Sounds like to me you are on the right path! Just keep on doing what you're doing.

    Q: I purchesed both the FULL BODY DETOX and the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. During week 3 of the Detox, I had a significant herpes breakout on by buttocks. Therefore, I opened the anti-viral kit and started doing the bath with the sea salt and the oil etc, and used it all up with in a week. Maybe I used too much but everything healed up well. Now I am into the first week of the Anti-Viral kit and on day 3 a small breakout started, but I am out of the Oil and roll on. Do you have a suggestion of something else I can put into the bath water besides the sea salt? I have some tea tree oil. I tried to purchase some Melissa oil, but could not find it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    A:

    Use tea tree oil, lavender oil, etc. in your bath water. Add hydrogen peroxide (1 cup) as well. You can oil down with OZ OIL after the bath!

    Q: I’ve been referred to your FULL BODY DETOX by my sister. I’ve been joyfully on it for a little over two weeks. I’m scheduled to finish this Tuesday coming up. Everything is wonderful as far as that flows... However, I have this wisdom tooth that decided to creep out of my gums and infect them as well... I'm in excruciating pain... I visited the dentist... He said he can’t pull the tooth until the gums heal.. My sister has me gargling with hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, tea tree oil and clove oil.... I want to know if this combination will heal my infected gums? Is this equivalent to what she would call an anti-fungal? I would deeply appreciate all of your wisdom right now? What you recommend now to heal the gums and preparing for and healing from the minor surgery? And Mr. Maatra your herbs and my willingness are healing me in imaginable ways.. My sister has been speaking of you and your influence in her

    A:

    Nadia has you gargling with some good stuff! Keep doing what you are doing. The hydrogen peroxide will help heal your gums. KHEMETIAN GOLD (available at Dherbs.Com) can also be used as a gargle. This is some powerful stuff! Read the â€BENEFITS OF CARBON A/K/A ACTIVATED CHARCOAL†article as well. Follow the advice in that article! Nadia is an apostle of health! A dear friend whom I love, value, and treasure! A real trooper! You'd all be wise to listen to her. She knows her stuff. A very powerful spiritual soul indeed! life.. We all laughed at her two years ago... She endured a lot... Now she’s got seven of us detoxing... Life is hilarious isn’t she.... Thank you for caring for those you haven’t even seen....

    Q: I love to drink water, but I like to drink hot water you know boiling water slightly cooled. Is there a benefit, or disadvantage to this compared to drinking room temperature water? Secondly, the water I drink is boiled water. Alkaline water is not a privilege most Kenyans have. If 56% of the population is living below poverty line you do the math. So the water I drink is tap water, that I boil to make it safe for drinking. When I get to work I have Alkaline water as my work place provides me with that provision. I think this is detailed enough for you to get the picture and help. Once again (I love you) in Swahili for spreading the gospel!

    A:

    No difference at all, Beloved! Even the boiled water becomes room temperature water. You're doing fine! Thank you for your words as well! Much appreciated! Peace and Love!

    Q: Please tell me which products will help my 11 yr old son eliminate or aid in his healing of this horrible disease (Allergic Fungal Sinusitis). He was taking allergy shots once a week for a year. He is allergic to everything...grass, trees; dustmites, soy, wheat, dairy, eggs. He now drinks rice milk and I order food online at ener_g foods such as breads, cookies etc that are made without all the things he is allergic to. I want to boost his immune system to help fight this disease. He is on a strict diet and I would love you input on how to help him.

    A:

    Clearly he's toxic! Clean his body out and the problem will go away. Try CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Let him drink warm water and lemon juice (from fresh squeezed lemon) every day. Let him drink herbal tea of Mullein leaf and/or Eucalyptus. When he is bathing, drop in 6-8 drops of essential oil of Eucalyptus per bath and add 1 box of sea salt to every bath. Let him soak for 45 minutes or so. He can heal from this problem!

    Q: I truly Thank You and Love your website and love for God. Please recommend what I can purchase from you for consistent vaginal mucous discharge. Not foul, just chalky and annoying. I think I may have Candida because I have dry scalp as well. I tried Probiotics but didn't seem to work.

    A:

    Thank you for your kind words. Much appreciated! For vaginal mucous discharge, I recommend the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. However, it is best to perform the FULL BODY DETOX first then the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. After your cleanses, make sure you take YONI FORMULA daily. Read some of our free health articles too!

    Q: You are a Godsend to me! I love your articles and the wisdom that has enlightened me. I read them every day to help keep me positive and focused. I was wondering if you would consider putting your articles on a CD or make them download friendly for MP3s. I would love to listen to them on my way to work or as I am relaxing at home. I am on the computer a lot but there are times when your inspirational messages would make the day go easier if I could hear them when no computer is available. I would buy them in a heartbeat!

    A:

    Thank you, Beloved! Many articles will be available for mp3 download coming very soon! Stay tuned to Dherbs.Com.

    Q: Thanks once again for your prompt response. Also, what about the iron extract? When I read your article on sickle cell, I ask the "doctor" some questions regarding iron and to my amazement, she could not answer properly and tried to make me think I was crazy and uninformed. But it backfired on her due to your educational articles. I LOVE YOU!! KEEP DOING WHAT YOU'RE DOING. EDUCATING THE WORLD!!!!! Peace & love for sure!!

    A:

    The Iron Extract is good too, Beloved! Herbs are noble and will help your child - guaranteed! And THANK YOU so much for showing so much love! I love you too, Beloved, and am thankful for your support and patronage of Dherbs.Com! God bless you, Beloved!

    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.

    Q: I'm due to give birth in less then a month, and I would really love to take the FULL BODY DETOX and become a vegetarian. How will this effected my newborn if I breastfeed?

    A:

    Perform a mild detox (use the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) for yourself) since you are breastfeeding. Think nutrition first before cleansing. You can always detox after you're done breastfeeding.
