Marchione_111215-2

Aside from a proper diet, there are some things you can do to ease the pain of canker sores until they fade away. For an at-home remedy, put a damp tea bag on the canker sore for five minutes. Tea is alkaline and neutralizes acids. It also contains astringent compounds which can help relieve the pain.

Other things you can do to prevent canker sores or ease the pain include limiting your use of alcohol and tobacco. And if possible, controlling the stress in your life.

    Q: I'm currently on the Full Body Cleanse. It's my 10th day. :) I have developed some sores and tenderness in my mouth. Is this from the cleanse?

    A:

    The mouth sores and tenderness is NOT from the detox, but are symptoms of your body's healing, which the detox has greatly initiated.

    You see, the herbs don't dictate where the emphasis goes (as far as healing goes), the body does. The body knows all the areas of your body that need addressing (emotionally as well as physically).

    Internal skin is skin just as well and the skin is the body's largest organ of elimination, so your body will use whatever channel is available to eliminate waste from the body.

    The mouth is part of the alimentary canal so this situation with your mouth only and simply denotes that much healing is taking place in your colon.

    Mouth sores are only temporary but they do dictate that the mouth's pH balance is too acidic. The mouth is naturally acidic, but it's a healthy acidic (6.8 pH)

    .

    To facilitate healing of the mouth sores, gargle with a little tea tree oil (2-3 drops), hydrogen peroxide (half a teaspoon), and sea salt (half a teaspoon) in some warm water, throughout the day.

    Q: Hello Dherbs.com, I really appreciate your site and making these herbs available to all. I have recently had an abnormal pap smear due to HPV and take lysine because of cold sores around mouth area (had problem since a little girl w/these). I am 27 on medication for bipolar schizoaffective disorder, which causes fatigue, dementia, and more. I'm looking for an alternate way to cope and heal the body. I've tried the master cleanse, I fast, and have changed to a healthier diet. I also take B- complex vitamins and drink herbal teas. I would like to try some of your products that would help to heal my conditions. I do not know if I should ask my doctor to take me off the meds before trying herbs, but this is a struggle for me, because my insight and judgment has decreased since I have been on pharmaceuticals. Someday I just want to cry, but I understand the joy and suffering that is a part of life. Are there any recommendations that to help heal my diseases.

    A:

    First of all we would highly suggest you schedule a consultation so we can decipher or decode the emotional root of your problems because the problems lies here. Okay, now for the meds. Drugs can't heal you, Beloved! No part of your body is made up from drugs. God didn't use drugs to make you. The drugs are enhancing your problems if not outright causing them. Give Nature a try! We would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. Clearly there are some emotional imbalances that have resulted in physical disease. Depression speaks from the soul. Are you listening? You can heal, beloved! You CAN heal!

    Q: Hello, I have the herpes virus that occasionally causes me to get a cold sore about once a year. I eat very healthy i.e. no dairy, fried foods, red meat etc. What do you recommend as a cure for this virus. I don't want to take something that will make the virus continue to stay dormant in my blood stream but something that will completely kill it out of my system so I never have an outbreak again. I'm certain there is a remedy that exists. My belief is that God has created a natural cure for every disease. Can you help, thanks?

    A:

    We have a very potent Anti-Viral Kit & Regimen that can help eradicate herpes from the body (especially if you perform the Full Body Cleanse before or after the Anti-Viral kit) and build the immune system to prevent future outbreaks.

    Also, read our article entitled "Genital Herpes" under "Articles" on our site.

    Q: The first time I had cancer it was uterine cancer where they did a hysterectomy. Now she has cancer in her liver, kidneys, on her stomach lining and spine. I am very concerned with my health so you may be correct. However, how do I deal with the sores that have manifested already? I am starting to meditate more to help me deal with my fears and emotions. What do you recommend?

    A:

    Purchase our NEW MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL E-Book that helps you work on your mind, thoughts, and emotions - the root of healing! Read the article "SEA SALT SOAKS" and begin doing those.

You may want to consider a consultation as well!

    Q: I have read your article on "CALCULI: KIDNEY, BLADDER, AND GALL STONES". The question I would like to know is would the natural remedy you listed in that article also help with salivary stones. I have had problems with this for over twenty years now. I have had one of my submandibular gland removed due to the duct had become blocked and the swelling wouldn't go down. The doctor said that both glands had stones in them but they only removed the one. I still am having problems with the other gland and in constant pain. I have tried a lot of things to try to rid it or to ease the pain. I just want to be rid of the stones, the swelling, and the pain for good without having the gland removed. So again will this work for salivary stones.

    A:

    You can use the product for salivary stones! GO FOR IT!

    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: I recently received bad news that my grandmother has cancer in several areas of her body. I am having a really hard time staying positive and generally dealing with it since I live so far from my family. Being a military family will do that I guess. Anyway since I heard the news I have broken out with 2 sores on my vagina (from ingrown hairs) and it also burns when I urinate and I have even developed cuts around my anus and on my clitoris hood. I have no clue if it's a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) or what. It even hurts when I am just lying in bed. I am starting a lemonade detox today and was hoping for any suggestions that you may have. I have not eaten meat in about two or three months. However I am still addicted to sugar. I hope all my information helps you in helping me discover a cause and solution to my issue.

    A:

    It appears your problem is psycho-somatic in nature. What kind of cancer does your grandmother have? Is it a female reproductive type cancer?

    Q: Do you have any products that will help remove gallstones? They wanted to remove my gallstones when I first experienced the pain and went to the emergency room, the following week. Luckily, I knew that the body can heal itself with the correct natural prescription. I changed my diet and passed about 50 stones about a month ago, and have not experienced any pain since, however, I believe that there are more stones in the gallbladder that I need to remove.

    A:

    For gallstones, perform our Full Body Detox kitand regimen. After the cleanse, take our Kidney-Bladder-Adrenal Gland Formula (6-12 capsules daily) and take a tablespoon of olive oil daily and you'll eliminate all of your stones. You can heal from your condition! Guaranteed!

    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: 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.
