Ice Cream Anyone?

0-206627568-icecream

While Americans love and enjoy their favorite sweet treat, the overwhelming majority of ice cream eaters don’t know what they’re eating. Chocolate, French Vanilla, Neapolitan, Cookies N Cream, Praline Pecan, Strawberry, Chocolate Chip, Butter Pecan, Mint Chocolate Chip, Rocky Road, Marble Fudge, Chocolate Fudge and a host of other ambrosial flavored brands-harmful? How so?

Dairy

First of all, since ice cream is a dairy product, it derives from an animal.

Dairy products are a contributing cause of leukemia in young American children. Leukemia used to be a disease indicative of Caucasians, but we have recently seen an increase in the African-American population because they are consuming more dairy products than before.

Additives

Normally, ice cream is derived from a female animal. Most female animals in America are injected with synthetic chemical hormones to make the cows develop faster. Therefore, ice cream is laced with synthetic hormones that greatly affect the female and male hormonal system. These chemical hormones can cause female reproductive area cancers in human females.

If the chemical hormones of synthetic estrogen make the female cow grow bigger and develop faster, what do you think it does to young American girls who love to eat ice cream? These little young American girls are walking around at age 8, 9 and 10 with fully developed breasts and buttocks, something you didn’t see in the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s. The chemical food industry is responsible for this development.

Not only does ice cream contain harmful chemical growth hormones, but it also consists of a lot of other chemical additives that are injurious to health.

Did you know that many conventional and commercial brands of ice cream contain the same ingredient that is used in anti-freeze solution for cars? Propylene glycol is being used as an ingredient in many ice creams and cupcakes.

Other additives found in ice cream include Piperonal, which is used in place of vanilla. Piperonal is also a chemical that is used to treat lice. Diethyl glucol is a cheap chemical used as an emulsifier instead of eggs. It can also be found in antifreeze and paint removers. Butyraldehyde is used in nut-flavored ice cream and is one of the ingredients in rubber cement. Amyl acetate is a chemical used for banana flavor. However, it is also used as an oil paint solvent. Ethyl acetate is used for pineapple flavor and is mainly used as a cleaner for leather and textiles. Aldehyde C17 is a chemical used to flavor cherry ice cream but is used as a inflammable liquid used in aniline dyes, plastic and rubber.

Sugar

Ice cream is sweet because of the number one and most addictive drug in the world-sugar! And the dairy industry is very clever and has learned how to hide sugar ingredients. Various forms of synthetic chemical sugars and sweeteners can be found under such umbrella terms as:

  • Sucrol
  • Maltose
  • Dextrose
  • Glucose
  • Saccharin
  • Aspartame
  • Xylitol

And if you didn’t know, saccharin and aspartame can cause cancer. These chemical artificial sweeteners are carcinogenic and can cause cancer.

Ice cream, like all other dairy products is fattening. It is impossible to have a fat-free dairy product. Low fat and nonfat products have fat in them. You can’t believe everything that the food industry claims.

Remember, sugar converts into fat in the human body and is stored in the fatty reserves, including the buttocks, breasts, thighs, belly, and back arms. Many people talk about losing weight and the easiest way to do so is to avoid eating certain foods. If you are having difficulty with the willpower, discipline, self-love, or fortitude, you may be dealing with emotional blockage or spiritual imbalance.

Solutions

If you eat conventional and commercial brands of ice cream, you should read the ingredients on the label and take notice of anything that can be hazardous to your health.

I am not suggesting that we need to completely avoid eating ice cream. I am just suggesting that we should be more aware of what we’re putting into our bodies. Ice cream is an American staple that does not need to be avoided, but limited in quantity.

There are many healthy nondairy alternatives to conventional ice creams.

Most health food stores carry a host of nondairy brands of ice cream that are far better and safer than regular dairy-based ice cream.

Alternative nondairy brands of ice cream include Rice Dream, Soy Dream, Carb Escapes, Freezees, Soy Delicious, Whole Soy, Tofutti, Natural Choice, and Sweet Nothings. Many different flavors are available under these brands. Whether you enjoy ice cream, sorbet, fruit bars or fudge bars, there are alternatives out there for you.

However, although these brands are nondairy, you should still read the labels for questionable ingredients, especially for the sugars. Rice Dream, Carb Escapes, Freezees, Soy Dream, and Soy Delicious seem to have the best ingredients, including sweeteners. However, Natural Choice uses evaporated sugar in their sorbet, Whole Soy uses organic sugar, and Tofutti also contains a questionable sweetener. However, compared to the real thing, these brands are much healthier and ideal for the health conscious consumer and vegan.

Ice cream is a treat that can be enjoyed as a delight or reward for special occasions. In regards to your health, you should not indulge in treats such as ice cream every day.

You would be wise to start reserving your special delights or sweet treats for the weekend, rather than engaging in them every single day during the week. Give yourself something to look forward to. That ice cream isn’t going anywhere!

    Q: I just recently found out that the face cream I have been using for 1 year has a horrible carcinogen in it called hydroquinone. I have been putting it on my face twice a day for over a year. Of course I had no idea this ingredient was a carcinogen, apparently a very serious one, until recently. I am not so worried for myself but concerned for my children who through cuddling and kissing were exposed to this substance as much as I was. What could I possibly do to get this horrible chemical out of their system and reverse it's damage. Also, my 7-year-old son had a CT scan of his head and I am worried about the radiation, can you recommend anything for that.

    A:

    Beloved, I would highly suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX and have the children perform the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . A good cleanse will help you out!

    Q: I have a question for you. Do you have or recommend an herbal cellulite cream that can be used as a body wraps to lose inches? There are so many products on the market and no one knows if they truly work or not. Is there an herbal body cream that I could use to shrink the fat cells in my stomach area? I have done a body detox and have been dieting for the past year. Hope you can help me to find the perfect herbal body cream that will help me.

    A:

    Cellulite doesn't come from a crème so it can't be healed with a crème. Cellulite is the result of diet and lifestyle so you have to make the necessary changes to your diet and lifestyle. Period! You're dealing with the Law of Cause and Effect here. The cause of cellulite is poor eating and lifestyle habits and the effect of poor dieting and lifestyle is disease, i.e. cellulite. I suggest you keep on detoxing! These wraps only work minimally, but it's cutting corners because even after having them performed you are still toxic inside - a walking time bomb!

    Q: I want to find out about skin lightening or evening out my skintone. I am a dark skinned 46 year old black female, I do not use bleaching creams because they are cancerous, and I think that it borders on black female self hatred, But I have uneven, and very dry dark skin color, I would like to get my skin all to one tone, and moist and healthy. Do you have any ideas, or recipes for a natural bleaching cream?

    A:

    Skin tone changes based upon life changes, just as your hands change based upon life changes. Live healthy, holistic, and everything will come back into balance. You see, evidently you did something for the skin to become uneven, after all, the skin was not always uneven. Something happened based upon what was going on in your life, and things you were doing and thinking. Go back to that period and reflect and start from there. Do the reverse and the healing will begin.

    Q: I think this way is easier and faster to have your response. I currently have many skin problems. I first started having body rash and eczema around my lips. When the skin gets dry, it hurts, and I've been trying to moisturize the skin with using all natural Burt's Bees andor Hugo natural lotion, cream or oil. I tried sea salt soak and been taking Sen-Fen, Blood formula, Immune support, Anti-Viral, but it's not working and the symptoms haven't gotten better at all. My entire body is really itchy from rash, so I haven't been able to sleep well for the past 2-3 weeks. If you have any suggestions for life style, special drinks and foods or products I can use, please let me know asap.

    A:

    Greetings! You skin problems are explained in the article "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" which I suggest you read. (visit articles section). When there's no physical healing, check the mind. Check out the NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL and there is a chapter in there on using the mind to heal. Basically you are focusing too much on the problem and not the solution which is optimal health and well-being. You are telling yourself how you don't want these problems and by saying this subconsciously, you are keeping the problems. Have your permanently switched or changed your diet? If not, what are you waiting for? Your blood is begging to be purified. Herbs alone won't get the job done. Let go of worrying about the problem. Focus on enjoying life, getting back in balance and you will begin to heal!

    Q: I went on a business trip to a not so clean hotel and came back with these mites. I tried to treat them with a common cream (I cannot think of the name right now). It worked but I did not realize then that you were supposed to use a follow up application a week later. They are back, and now seem to be immune to it. I?ve read about neem and karanja oils, and I have tried them, but I am not sure I am doing it right. Any suggestions?

    A:

    Bathe in hot water, 2-3 boxes of sea salt, 7 drops of tea tree oil, 3 drops of Eucalyptus oil, and half a cup of hydrogen peroxide daily.

    You can also perform our Parasite & Worm Cleanse to detoxify your body from harmful invaders.

    Q: My father (age 56 who's between healthy and sick. jogs every morning, but doesn't eat healthy) has pain traveling from knee, back to shoulder, I, myself am very health conscious! but I can't put my finger on this one! His (history) no high blood pressure, non-diabetic, no history of heart attics, stroke etc... but loves to eat sweets.. cakes, cookies, milk, ice cream, etc....I believe this could be a combination of many things, like yeast build up, gas, arteries clogged. Can you help me?

    A:

    The best way to find out is have your father (or someone on his behalf) to schedule a health consultation so we can get at the root of the problem. While there could be a host of things causing the problem on the physical level, I'm more interested at getting at the emotional root of the problems. Product-wise, I would have your father start with the FULL BODY DETOX.

    Q: My questions to you is how to I get rid of this keloid on the back of head thats been there for years. I?ve been told that surgical procedures would only make it come back, perhaps worse than what it is now.

What do you suggest I do?

    A:

    Rub Oxy-Oil on the keloid every morning. This product is great to help heal skin conditions.

    Q: I read your website on the Michael Baisden's forum and I have been looking with much excitement at your products! I know you don't have time to recommend products to everyone, but if you could recommend something for my 3 year old son, it would be greatly appreciated. In the last year he has gotten the ringworm twice since starting daycare. Once in the head and the second time on the forehead. I've used over the counter cream the second time which made it go away for a short time. And now a month later he is developing a rash, it looks like small pimples, not the ringworm, but I'm thinking its ringworm because its in the same spot. If you could recommend some herbs for him to get rid of this ringworm once and for all, I will purchase it immediately. Just for your info, he doesn't eat meat except at school and absolutely no pork. Thanks in advance

    A:

    Please rub Dherbs OZ OIL on his body parts with ringworm.

    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: 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: 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: I read the food chart for the FULL BODY DETOX. Is it ok to eat the cream of wheat while detoxing? I'm confused because on the food chart it mentioned alot of different foods, but it tell you the best thing to do is a all raw food diet such as salads and fruit, smoothies... I also plan to do the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN right after the FULL BODY DETOX and that requires a all raw food diet as well. So that means 2 months of strictly raw foods right? :( Its tough but I am determined too get rid of this hsv1 & hsv 2

    A:

    I suggest you read the article â€WHAT IS RAW FOODS†as it will help you to understand what to eat and what not to eat on the FULL BODY DETOX. Yes, all raw foods for 2 months (to the best of your ability, Beloved). YOU CAN DO IT, BELOVED! Did you read our "GENITAL HERPES" article?

    Q: During my phone consultation, I inquired about shaving creams other than the magic shave that I had been using for years. I tried the Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap as well as the Alba shaving cream. I have tried them both, and I use the hydrogen peroxide after I shave. But after a couple of days of smooth butter skin, my face becomes slightly irritated and small bumps form around the area where a goatee would grow. I know that I have some skin issues as of late, but don't know what. I even put a good amount of the OZ OIL on my face after I use the hydrogen peroxide. Should I not expect any constant smooth shaves until I go through the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD)?

    A:

    Whether you know it not but you answered your own question and correctly so. Yes, give the FULL BODY DETOX a try!

    Q: I am a 49 yr. old black female. When I was younger I had severe cystic acne that left me with what the dermatologist calls "ice pick scaring" and enlarged pores. I had 2 full face dermabrasions in my 30s and have been on retina A from then up until now. I have a pretty healthy diet and exercise routine. My Father and a couple of Uncles of mine also had the same type of skin problems, left with the same aftermath. I use French green clay masks which slightly reduce the look of the large pores and a sugar, honey, and lemon scrub (I make it at home) and I use it on my face. I'm not unattractive, but my skin looks rough and dull and pitted on my cheeks and nose. All the doctors talk about scar revision (cutting),laser treatments, chemical peels, and all sorts of invasive surgeries. I don't want to go that route again and I feel bad about the way I look sometimes. Are there ANY suggestions that you can give that will help me?

    A:

    SKIN PROBLEMS ARE UNDERLYING BLOOD PROBLEMS. CLEANSE YOUR BLOOD, GIVE YOUR BODY NUTRITION. STEAM YOUR FACE. KEEP CLAYING YOUR FACE. IMPROVE UPON YOUR DIET GO ALL RAW FOODS OR VEGAN DIET). A GOOD ARTICLE TO READ IS â€SKIN RASH†ON OUR SITE UNDER ARTICLES.
