We Acquire Strength in What We Overcome

0-427636812-overahill

People acquire strength in what they overcome. Trials and tribulations do not necessarily shape character; these things simply demonstrate character. Adversity acts as a litmus test to reveal what is already there. From the moment of birth, one’s character is constantly being defined and established. As wonderful as success is, it rarely offers the opportunity to reveal one’s strength of character. Such moments arise only from negative situations.

Character is not shaped, but revealed-revealed through overcoming trials, tribulations, ordeals, challenges, and problems with a sound mind.

Morbid as it may sound, it is very true that what doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger. Hardship gives us the opportunity to learn valuable things about ourselves through undergoing mental, emotional, and physical trials. Such lessons can be invaluable and will frequently help us later in our lives.

Moreover, hard times do more than merely reveal one’s character. They help us become more aware of our personal ethics, morals, and scruples, as well as what we stand for in our life. It’s easy to have theoretical principles. On the other hand, maintaining one’s principles during times of adversity demonstrates great strength of character.

For many people, overcoming obstacles strengthens faith in many different things. Such things include religion, other people, themselves (in terms of abilities, talents, character), as well as solutions (figuring out how to solve or overcome the obstacle). As the obstacles we face become heavier and heavier, and with each one we successfully overcome, our faith in such things gets stronger and stronger. The increase in faith is usually in proportion to the intensity of the obstacle, challenge, trial, tribulation, or problem; so, the bigger the problem, the stronger the faith on the other side after emerging victoriously.

People with positive thinking would argue that we experience problems for two reasons: to overcome them, and to learn from them.

There is no trial, tribulation, challenge, obstacle, or problem too powerful or insurmountable for any of us to overcome if we make up our minds to tackle it head on. With a sound and sober mind, patience, and the courage to keep trying, we become invincible. Try it and see! Believe in yourself, and you can accomplish many great and wonderful things. You are much stronger than even the toughest and most complex obstacle.

If we stay focused on the prize, remain steadfast in our trust and belief in ourselves, decide to persevere and be persistent, remain optimistic, and embrace a positive mental attitude, we are bound to come out on the other side of any trial, tribulation, obstacle, challenge, or problem in one piece, stronger in faith, and victorious.

Every problem has an answer. That answer may not always be simple or easy to find. It may take days or weeks of thinking and consideration. You may need to ask for help or advice from others, and there is nothing wrong with that. If you are in school, many institutions offer counseling services for free or very reasonable rates. If you ask for help from your friends or family, the odds are that someone has already endured your situation or at least a similar one and will be able to offer good insight.

The most important part is to remain positive and keep trying. Most major problems were not solved in a day, or even a week. If you find yourself getting frustrated, take a break. Go for a run or take a long shower. Try to relax and don’t push yourself too much.

Answers can also be found in surprising places. Consider going to the library and cruising through the shelves. You never know where inspiration will strike. And if nothing else, the library is filled with books of motivational stories and about people who have overcome incredible obstacles. If Franklin Roosevelt could be stricken by polio and still rise to the presidency, surely you too can overcome your personal obstacle. Or consider Helen Keller, who managed to communicate with people and the world despite being both blind and mute.

The world is filled with amazing people, and you are one of them! Challenges are not to be feared or even merely endured, but rather triumphed over! Be confident and trust in your abilities. When given a burden, we all have the choice to sink or rise to the occasion. Be strong and embrace the challenge! After conquering the challenge, you will feel strong and invincible. Adversity has not conquered you, for you are only stronger for what you have experienced. The world is yours!

Thank you for reading!

    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 was most impressed by your website. The information to support your products and your obvious interest in informing the public caught and kept my attention. As I searched further into Black Seed Tea, the reason for my visit, I noticed your product ALCOHOL BUSTER. The comment of "on the metaphysical level, alcohol consumption also impairs the human aura" although very non clinical, is very much my way of thinking, it got my attention. I read as far as the disclaimer, "the formula does not have the power to prevent consumption of alcohol as only will power and a made up mind can do this." Here's where I step out of character and find myself writing this e-mail. It has been my experience while working with people from all walks of life, who are members of any 12 step program, that a reference to will power as a prevention of anything is a two edged sword. While I agree will power is important in abstention, I believe the person is benefited by using their personal will power to seek help, to commit to recovery, to take care of the physical, mental and emotional bodies. I don't believe "human" will power is the power that prevents consumption. The suggestion that "will power and a made up mind can prevent consumption of alcohol" to a person with an addiction could become a deadly idea. This of course is my opinion, do with it what you feel is appropriate.

    A:

    I feel you in where you're coming from, but I truly believe and know human willpower plays a role in prevention and healing of all disease. The strongest thing humans have is a will. Will meshes with desire in many cases. Both are strong in humans. Now, you're dealing with a person with addiction in regards to your last statement and I can totally understand where you are coming from but the sick person is not exempt from any laws of healing. There is no real or true healing absent willpower to do a thing, a beneficial thing. The addicted person must be first dealt with on the physical and psychological levels and then the spiritual and energetic (getting to the root of the addiction: perhaps a 2nd chakra problem or something hanging over from a past life). All addiction points to spiritual void and therefore the only ultimate healing here is mental or spiritual via mental. As you know, it's mind-body-spirit and all must be dealt with for healing. Will is important in abstention but we don't won't people to focus on abstaining which is usually converted into "can't have" by the addicted person. We want people to only focus on the good, the healthy, what they need and require, not what they don't want or can't have because their subconscious mind will create the situations and circumstances by which these people end up consuming the thing that is insalubrious for them. It never fails. I grew up with an alcoholic mother and plenty of other alcoholics. We want people to have and use willpower to GO FOR the best things for them, will in DOING the right and healthy things for themselves. All healing is ultimately within self. As a man thicket so is he! Peace be unto you fellow metaphysician!

    Q: I read most of your articles. Love them. What you say is 100% correct. See for me. I believe that God has put me here for a reason. I have been blessed with the ability to for see things and when I think about something hard enough BAM!! I think of someone and they show up, so in regards to my current situation YES. I did have a hand in this. I keep thinking of not wanting to get HIV. Didn’t want to hear about or talk about it. Then two months before getting my initial test. It was on my mind. Then I got a physical and I was like no going to take this test but went ahead anyway and here we are. Do I believe in it? Not anymore. I now believe in blood toxicity. I am not freaking out about outbreaks because I don't have any. What I want is to know how to shape my mind. Do I need Chakra balance? What can I do to stop the thoughts? How do I reverse my mind to stop thinking on things. I try so hard to see happy things and feel happy thoughts. BTW in Jan I thought about a cold sore and it appeared.

    A:

    Thanks for explaining all that! I think the MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL is right up your alley, Beloved. It'll be up next week. So glad you enjoy my articles, Beloved! You are a powerful person and you will be dangerous (in a good way) when you learn the power of your mind. Peace and Love!

    Q: Peace, Dherbs.com. I emailed earlier this year requesting advise on problems I've been having with both my stomach and bladder which are still persisting. Around 5 years ago I noticed that my stomach started to swell until it became fully distended and firm (almost like a round ball). I found this unusual because I have always had a very flat stomach and have always been very active, as well as, tried to maintain a good diet. However after consulting with several western doctors non seems to have a clue as to the cause of the problem. Although during one examination a urologist said he could feel a hard lump just under my right rib cage. I am currently due to have an 'endoscopy' but am running out of options if this procedure does not reveal or identify the problem. Regards my bladder, this problem started between 13-15 years old, I am now 36 years. The main problem is that a majority of the time I am unable to urinate normally. Instead it sometimes takes upto 2-3 mins for the bladder to release anything, even when I'm presse, also even when something does come out it's usually in trickles which stops and starts. There is no pain, but it is very frustrating. Also, I usually need to urinate at least once every hour even if I have not drunk any fluid for a long period of time. This tends to cause a big problem if I am not near a toilet for long periods of time, as I then have to hold myself, which can be very uncomfortable. I won't go on hopefully this info will be sufficient for a diagnosis or an idea as to what the problem may be. Either way, any insight that you may be able to help me with into these two issues will be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    We would recommend the Full Body Cleanse and the Female Cleanse. Our Kidney-Bladder-Adrenals can also be helpful in remedying some of ther issues you are experiencing. Once you complete the cleanse, consume this formula to keep with the progress you've made.

    Q: Thank you so much for doing all that you do. I wish that you were in my everyday life...If I ever come to Cali, I hope to be able to take you up on some of your services. I have given your site out to many people that cross my paths...most recently, a man with diabetes who is going blind. He seemed to be quite thankful for your info...I do hope that he contacts you...and my friend who perhaps has a problem with a parasite(s). But me....okay just waiting for tax refund and then I will hit you up for another full-body detox...and perhaps a parasite kit myself...as it is sad but true..with my current boyfriend careless but kind...I now have a problem with genital herpes...a small breakout every other month...I eat well for the most part...ofcourse it could be better. But the stress is hish...I am working on that. But my question is...would an air purifier do me any good? You see I live in Dundalk, Maryland...near baltimore...near a Steel plant, and a yeast plant, and close to the military practice bombing sites, and other military negative stuff, and the city polluted with car pollution, tons of light pollution, and they spray for mosquitos...then I go to work and I work at a place called ABC Supply...great place right, well the stress is high, and the building we work in is shot...I swear there is mold under the carpets in one of the rooms...the ceiling is constantly leaking and we don't know what from...and the fumes from forklifts and the asphalt from the shingles...the filterfrom the intake gets changed like once a year...but is filled with 'shit' probably in a day or week. So the answer is to get a new job and move...yeah I know...I just don’t know how to do it...or where to go. Since I moved here, I have a problem with my ears...filling up with water or histimine or whatever...usually if I don't drink enough water near my menstrual cycle...I went to a doctor once and basically walked out of the office telling him what to do for his cold...yasee..he was no help...I knew more than him already....these past two years have been bad for allergies. Now, my ears and my throat...my nose too...though I do clean it out with water and that helps. I am not the only one. In the past two years there is a great number of people who say the same thing...they have never had a problem with allergies until these past two years. My grandmother and next door neighbor are two..but many more...well they just started up that steel mill again probably about that time...they sprayed hard core for mosquitos right before my grandmother started having problems...global warming for one...and i dont' know..but two years ago I was involved with a group of people sending out petitions against an LNG liquid natural gas plant that would bring in a ship two times the size of a football field and a huge pipe line to pennsylvania, and a skyscraper of a building to store the gas. Well...we fought against it...but apparently the gas company has more say than our own local government...I don't know...but hear about it every once in a while that they are still trying to get it built. So, an air purifier?? what do you think? Much Love and Health and Thanks!! Peace, RESPONSE: Thank you so very much for your words, Beloved. Much obliged from the heart!

    A:

    In regards to your question: Oh yes! By all means purchase an air purifier or an ozone machine (which will actually be best or better for you). Make sure you detox (FULL BODY DETOX) periodically, consume ACTIVATED CHARCOAL, and take plenty of IODINE PHOSPHATE as sea weed is great for neutralizing the effects of radiation.

    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 bought most of your ebooks and recording and just want to tell you how enlightening all the material has been. While reading, the mental science book you talked about a poverty conscious mindset and how many leaders of spiritual movements such as Christianity and Nation of Islam used manipulation to keep their followers in bondage. One of the specific things you mentioned was that leaders would tell their followers they have to give their money to the institution even if it was money they had to use to pay the rent mortgage. My question is: how does that differ from a tithe and what do you think about authors, other metaphysical teachings of the principle of giving as a secret to prosperity. I know in Catherine Ponder's books she mentioned that 10 is the number of increase based on ancient teachings and that we should give systematically to demonstrate our faith in an abundance universe. I have also read many authors who say that same things. What is your take on it?

    A:

    I believe in giving but it must be from the heart. Many people don't give from the heart but from FEAR! Or, they feel compelled to give and this is not giving freely. It's quid pro quo giving meaning "I'm giving because I want something in return" i.e. recognition, to be or get in good graces with God, etc. I'm covering tithing in my new manual "The Money Manual." Tithing is just 10% of something, not necessarily money. Tithing can be 10% of your food, time, services, etc. Giving is okay but folks should not give to others without first giving to self for charity starts at home. Poor people should not be giving charity in the form of money for if God needs a dollar God is in worse shape than his poor followers. It is the organization asking for the money and doing so in the name of God. They collect money in the name of God and thus exploit people in the name of God.

    Q: So in the greater scheme of things is the FULL BODY DETOX just something to get the ball rolling? Why do people see such significant results? Also I didn't find much on bed wetting on your site. My son is close to 13 and has been dealing with a bed-wetting problem since he was a toddler. He has been prescribed things like catnip and other bladder/nervous system supporting herbs. I purchased the teenager cleanse for him but do you have any other suggestions?

    A:

    THE HERBS ARE FORMULATED VERY WELL AND THE HERBS ARE POTENT. COUPLE THIS WITH THE RAW FOODS DIET AND HERE'S YOUR ANSWER! I RECOMMEND CENTAURY EXTRACT! COMING SOON TO DHERBS (AUGUST 2008)

    Q: Which formula do you consider to be more potent or stronger or maybe last longer in the body, the extracts or the capsules.

    A:

    WITHOUT A DOUBT, CAPSULES!

    Q: Greetings, I wanted to first say thanks for all of the great advice you have given me over the past couple of months. On Tuesday my husband and I welcomed our second daughter into the world. We had a natural birth with a midwife, and it was the best experience ever! So, you know I have a question for you. My midwife, and pediatrician are worried, and preplexed because my daughter who was born on Tuesday has not had a bowel movement yet. She has not passed any meconium at all, and from what I've read newborns are supposed to pass this within 24 hours after birth. I was full term at 40 weeks at the time of delivery. The baby had a full ultrasound today, and I am waiting to hear the results. We are keeping a positive outlook, but you know I had to get your take on the situation because I trust your judgement and advice. I've also sent you a few photos of my family and our new baby girl. Take care and the best to you and your family.

    A:

    Greetings! Wow! Adorable, precious little baby. Kudos to you and the family! Beloved, trust in Nature. Every body, and every baby is different. The baby will release when he/she is ready to release. My recent son didn't release until 2-3 days later. However, he eventually released. Babies are not on our worldly time schedule. We shouldn't hold them to our worldly expectations, because then we start to think something is wrong (with them), and start worrying which is unhealthy. Just show the love! That's it! Nature got this!!! I have a new e-book "The Complete Home-Birth Guidebook" you will find of great assistance with your post-natal process and period. Great information for you in it! Peace and love!

    Q: I think it is interesting that you spend a lot of time pushing your personal opinions and share limited advice. What do you understand about integrity and professionalism? Or even respect for others? I do not see it. If people are looking to you for help why do you spit on their problems? I was researching your site to help a client resolve their addiction to smoking. I have to say I was sadly disappointed to read your article. It is not helpful nor is it informative. In fact it enforces shame and negativity on those who seek help and positive life changes. I would hope you could restructure your article to benefit all. It would be beneficial to check out higher consciousness sites on herbal healing. I wish for you in this moment to find peace and resolve your anger and prejudice that is so apparent in your articles. Love, light and peace.

    A:

    YOUR perception is not MY reality, Love. I am doing me and you do you. Tell you what: you do what I am failing to do or what you feel I am failing to do. This would be more appropriate. Pick up the ball where you deem it dropped. Talk is cheap and actions speak. I have done the actions and am doing them (read the reviews and testimonies on Dherbs.com). It speaks for itself. My new smoking article will reflect where I am presently, but it will still blast the ignorant cigarette smokers. One can't just blame government and the cigarette industry for the actions of the dumb cigarette smoker. Dumb and weak Americans must also foot partial blame, actually most of it, because they had a choice and there was no gun to their head forcing them to smoke. These people were simply weak and stupid and not to mention unconscious. Period! It doesn't sound nice but it's factual and truthful. I don't sugar coat the truth because sugar is a poison! The first article was written 6-7 years ago and that's why it's so brief. Thank you for visiting the #1 website in all-natural herbal products and raw uncompromising information that people all across the world are eating up and just can't get enough of.

    Q: Dear Yogi, I read an article on your site about reverse Kundalini (anal sex). I don't know if you can answer my question or not - originally I was going to pose it to "Ask the Guru", but in my limited understanding, Kundalini is tied into yoga. I have been trying to get balanced by meditating, living my passions, writing, art, and belly dancing all unprofessionally, except for the first one (on a very small scale). I have been doing guided chakra meditations and other things, including yoga, and some dietary modifications. I feel I am gradually growing and living my purpose. However, incrementally starting in my mid forties. Anyway, I have been on this path for a couple of years now, and have more happiness and peace than I ever have. I don't want to get into a lengthy essay about my limited understanding of Kundalini, and the possibility of what I perceive is going on with my body (though I am very healthy) right now, so I will attempt to get to the point. I am grateful for my life. I have much more than many people if I were to measure. I feel like I am still blocked, though. About three years ago I dated a guy who sodomized me one time. He was a rapist, long story short and an error in judgement on my part. Though my intuition was screaming at me the whole time. I look at the experience as pushing me further along my path and teaching me to trust, love, respect myself, and defend my boundaries. What concerns me is that I feel that experience is still trapped within me to a degree, and I am worried that it will manifest into a disease. Often when I meditate on my root chakra I start crying. Part of me believes that I can't force anything, just have to let the process unfold in its own time. There is so much info out there that I find it overwhelming, and it is hard to know which to trust. So I have just been going with what resonates with me as far as technique. If you could offer me any advice, I would be grateful.

    A:

    Hello, I would like to first thank you for sharing your story and your experience. It sounds like you are devoting time and attention to the many things, that will help foster a sustained health and healing for you in life. As you have recognized, it is very helpful for us to take intuition very seriously and to honor this innate ability to discern whether a situation will be harmful or beneficial to our growth and experience as humans. Very often the circumstances and challenges presented to us in life, as happened in yours, serve as great teachers in allowing us to witness our own great strength, compassion, and value. I am glad to hear that you have been able to take the very difficult situation you found yourself in and use your experience to create a better understanding of yourself in the process. While it is true that we tend to develop patterns of holding and habitual ways of holding tension within the body; this does not mean that there are not steps you can take to move through such a body, mind, and spirit experience. The fact that you are crying upon meditating on your root chakra is a sign that you have made yourself available to the grief that naturally accompanies traumatic situations such as the one you experienced. Keep in mind that when we deeply grieve, our bodies are able to express the energy that may have potentially been repressed during this experience. The energy of the root chakra is all about our ability to feel safe, strong, and supported. The violation of this energy can leave one feeling ungrounded and striving for our self-preservation. Try not to become fixated on the worries you are having about the experience arising as disease in your body, as worrying can lead to increased levels of chronic stress, which will potentially create an internal environment more vulnerable to disease - which is what you are trying to avoid. It might be nice for you to meditate on your right to be here, to exist on this planet, and to be valued. It may also be very nice for you to take some restorative yoga classes, which can be grounding and stimulating to the parasympathetic nervous system (assists in the healing process). Recognize that the body may be holding energy in a direct response to a real threat, but begin to create a safe, loving and supportive environment to allow yourself to begin to be able to let go of this holding as you feel safe. When working to heal the first chakra, it is helpful to get in touch with the direct experience of the sensations of the body and become aware of the physical experience of the body. This can be done with the assistance of an expert, to help you change the physical expression of your felt experience. We could also do something called "body dialogue" to put you more deeply in touch with what the physical expression you are experiencing has to teach you about how you are inhabiting the world you are in. There are also many forms of grounding exercises which can help to balance the first chakra. If you are interested in being lead through a series of guided meditations, please contact me at megan@ritualwellbeing.com. Namaste, Megan

    Q: Hi there, I never got yeast infections before but I had my first one in March of this year (2015) and have been suffering ever since. I was first treated with fluconazole and the infection went a way for a few weeks and then came back to which I was treated with another dose... again, it came back. I was treated with one more dose of the fluconazole- 3 pills every other day, I'm not sure the strength.... and of course, it came back. I went back to the doc and said I wanted to try a different solution as this wasn't working. They sent my culture into the lab to test for a different strand of candida but it came back just a strong strand of candida albicans. I was sent home with a cream and told to try boric acid suppositories or get put on a weekly prescription of the fluconazole. I don't want to rely on perscription meds that seem to make it only come back stronger. If you have any advice, please please please help me I am so desperate. I have been taking probiotics, using coconut oil for relief and cutting out all sugar. Any help would be so much appreciated. Best, Rokki

    A:

    We always recommend starting off with the Full Body Cleanse to help eliminate the toxins and waste that often contributes to recurring issues in the body. You should move on to the 10 Day Candida Cleanse to specifically address the candida presence in your body. After cleansing you should avoid consuming a lot of sugar, dairy and processed foods. You can also continue to take the Candida Normalizer as a maintenance.

    We also recommend reading our article entitled Candida Albicans: Yeast Infection.http://www.dherbs.com/articles/candida-yeast-infection-144.html

    Q: My grandmother's disease is getting progressively worse these days. Thus, I would like to know why you referred to the dementia as so-called? This has really peaked my curiosity, however, it is obvious that she is forgetting things and very confused about her day to day surroundings; ex: asks frequently to be taken to her home, although she's already there, can no longer drive, cook, or be left alone. She even thinks that her children are other people at times. To be quite frank, she is severely depressed, overweight, and has almost zero desire to do anything, but perhaps die as she often says. I think a great deal of this stems from the fact that she feels her independent life is gone. Yet, allof this is linked to the fact that she is forgetting how to do basic things. Sorry for the lack of brevity, but as you said, an attempt to ask or try, is better than not asking or trying at all.

    A:

    Start giving her our Brain Booster Tea and Tropical Tea daily to improve oxygen flow to the brain.

    Q: I have been using your products since April of this year and I am very pleased. I have referred a few people to the site and some were brave enough to try the FULL BODY DETOX. I have a friend who complains about sinus problems especially at nights and I wanted to find an article on the website that I can refer them to. However, I couldn't find one that is titled sinus problems. Can you suggest one? I've read the asthma article but it may not be appropriate for their problem.

    A:

    A new article on Sinus Problems will be up next month. So please stay tuned to Dherbs.Com. For sinus problems, formula-wise, I recommend SINUS FORMULA, MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA, and RESPIRATORY INSPIRANT. The 3-week RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMENis also ideal for this situation.

    Q: I found out about your website and that you offer different treatments to improve other people's health. My question is that I have a relative, my aunt to be more specific; she suffers from a bipolar disorder which is getting worse and does not improve with any kind of drug. She is getting hospitalized in a mental hospital by tomorrow morning and I do not feel too comfortable with this situation therefore I wanted to ask you about any treatment that you might offer for this type of disorder. I really do not think that hospitalizing her in a mental hospital will do the work, if you could please write back to me by tomorrow. She has tried Reconnective Healing and it seems to help her relax but it does not take the symptoms away.

    A:

    I would recommend that your aunt give our Nerves Formula, Central Nervous System Formula, and Brain Booster Formula and Elixir #6 and Elixer #7 a try for bipolar.

    Q: I know your very busy, but I would be very appreciative if you could help me in any way that you can. I'm 22 with a 7 month old baby, with no support from my family. Over the last 3 months the father decided that he doesn't love me anymore, and has done an obscene about of things to disrespect me. Which leaves me hurt, and stressed out! I'm mentally, spiritually, and physically drained. I have no peace of mind, and I tend to fall in and out of depression. I feel like I'm going to breakdown, and the tears just won't stop falling. I'm trying to keep it together for my baby. Internally, I've been hurt so bad, I just feel like giving up. How can you love someone one minute, and the next not care for them at all? How do I deal with her father? I'm so tired of being the bigger person, and trying to work through things. He just doesn't care at all, and he makes no effort to even try. He then turns around and says, "He cares about his daughter". I try to explain to him that our relationship affects her, but he always has an answer for everything. I don't mean to dampen you with my problems, but I would appreciate it if you could not only hear me, but feel me and what I'm going through. Every little bit helps

    A:

    Greetings, Beloved! You are upset because you expect something and expectation is your problem. You are expecting something beyond your control, expecting something coming from another person you can't control. Just do you and let karma take care of this dude. You just can't up and not love someone anymore. He's either saying that so as to bounce from the scene (leave) and his responsibilities or he never loved you in the first place and perhaps used you for his own purposes of sexual gratification and you ended up getting pregnant. At either rate, just do you and focus on you - what you desire for you and your child. Think positive! Let go of the situation involving this dude. Start on it TODAY! The dude is selfish and creating karma! Release him! You can't make a person do something that is not in them to do.

    Q: Hi Dherbs.com, I'm 17 and I'm from west Africa, I am Aquarius. I really like your medicine and advice, it reminds me of Africa! I have a heavy computer that I use for college, and it's about 3 Kgs. I also lost about 15 Kgs (65-50 kgs for 1.60m) in 1 year in Europe, and I would like to know what may cause it. my back really hurts, I try to be as healthy as possible, I'm turning vegan, I've stopped everything but dairy and, because it's everywhere and I don't have time to cook for myself every day. I also have problems at school, it's too hard to study, I always feel tired, and I've got problems with family, they want me to keep on studying things I don't like. How could you help me ? Thanks a lot and keep on doing your job, it's great!

    A:

    Back problems also have an emotional cause. Are you bending over backwards for somebody or something? Do you feel that your back is against the wall in some regard or matter? Turning vegan is a good idea and should really improve your health. Have you read our article "DANGEROUS DAIRY" Now as far as your family wanting you to do things you don't want to do, you need to follow your heart and do you. Always be true to yourself. It's the only way magic can happen or occur.
