Release Your Inner Tree Hugger For National Love A Tree Day

hugging-tree

Trees are more than pretty elements of nature or towering umbrellas 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/apartment, 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, pear 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:

The experience of walking on a hiking trail, which is shaded by enormous trees, is incredibly relaxing and makes you feel like you are walking in a fairytale landscape. Is it even real? How long have these trees been there? What information do they hold? 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.

    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: 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 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: 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: 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: 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: Peace and Love my Dear Friend! I have been managing thorough the healing process. I had my monthly checkup last week at Kaiser, I knew the blood count reading was going to be low because of the heavy bleeding. Well as it turns out it was so low Kaiser repeatedly called me to go to the nearest emergency room for a blood transfusion. I told them that I was not interested in a blood transfusion. I was told that I was risking a stroke or heart attack. I am concerned as I am experiencing weakness, headaches, and shortness of breath. I also took a pelvic ultrasound which showed two small fibroids remaining. I passed about 10 fibroids in the last three months. When we met, you mentioned your friend who beat breast cancer. You mentioned a oxygen therapy that she utilized where she had a needle inserted into the tumor containing a form oxygen. Can you get me some information on the oxygen therapy she used. You also mentioned a oxygen machine that you sell that would oxygenize drinking water. Any information you can provide me would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    You don't need a blood transfusion, you need to build up your blood with herbs, i.e. NETTLE, YELLOW DOCK, BURDOCK, DANDELION, IRISH MOSS, etc. or Dherbs BLOOD & LYMPHATIC and/or IRON PHOSPHATE formula.

    Most of all DON'T WORRY because you're body will respond -- guaranteed! Doctors are always telling Black women this to get them to undergo surgery, blood transfusions, take poisonous iron pills, etc.

    In re stroke or heart attack caveat (warning), start taking herbs (drinking tea) of PERIWINKLE, HAWTHORNE BERRIES, GINGER, and CINNAMON immediately or Dherbs CARDIOVASCULAR and STROKE BUSTER formulas.

    In re headaches, herbs of WHITE WILLOW BARK, FEVERFEW, MEADOWSWEET, GINKO BILOBA or Dherbs HEADACHE formula.

    A chakra balancing may do you some good too right about now. I have a few openings for this Wednesday and Thursday if you are interested.

    I will contact Gennifer about the oxygen therapy procedure. I sell Ozone machines for $400 (which we don't advertise on the site). Oxygen will do you some good.

    START juicing with CELERY, APPLE, GINGER (just a little bit), BEET, and CARROT now!!!!!! This will help to build up the blood.

    Stay positive! You are releasing from the heart (emotions), but the shortness of breath denote your life force is low right now, the headache denotes resistance, the weakness denotes lack of strength (spiritually due to it being zapped by past and present life issues.

    Doctor visits may not be wise in the future. You'll only walk away with bad news that will create more worry on your mind which your body will respond to. You might as well go all herbal and natural.

    The two remaining fibroids are due to resistance, they fibroids are holding on as a sign that in some area of your life (emotionally) you're still holding on to something.

    Try to laugh! Think only of happy things. Think of things to feel good about! Lay down, listen to some good music (classical would be ideal). Go to the beach and bury your feet in the sand. Is romeo on the scene? Experience romance if he is! Love, live, laugh, lose, let go, luxuriate, etc.

    Q: I really love what you're doing and you have a brilliant approach in getting the information out to the masses. I just finished watching your youtube footage. Very Nice! I am a Kung-Fu Martial Artist and I've been experiencing discomfort in my knees. I workout regularly. Is there any recommendation you could give me to quiet this discomfort and help restore my body, because my muscles are often sore.

    A:

    Thank you for your acknowledgment, Beloved! Much obliged! Metaphysics: Emotionally, the knees (knee pain) refelcts inflexibility in your perception of the future. It occurs more often in those with an arrogant or stubborn personality, who are unable to bend to new ideas or to the ideas of others. Physical: Knee pain denotes inflammation and should be treated immediately. I recommend Dherbs.Com HEADACHE AND PAIN FORMULA, JOINT FORMULA, ACID BUSTER, MSM SULFUR, and ENZYMES FORMULA. Rub a natural salve product on your knees too (or essential oil of Eucalyptus and Peppermint). Rub knees daily with these oils. Apply olive oil on the knees first before you rub in these 2 oils.
