Q: Hi, I am trying to find out if I can eat the following items while on my cleanse: - Oatmeal (breakfast) - egg whites - smoothies (can I use Smoothie King or Panet Smoothie or I have to make my own)
The literature clearly states ONLY RAW FOODS (please see the article "WHAT IS RAW FOODS" in our articles section). You can make your own smoothies or purchase them. Your choice!
Q: Is it okay for a person with diabetes to have a fruit smoothie in the mornings during the full body detox?
YES!!!! Just watch your sugar because most diabetics have sugar problems due to bad sugar mixed with good sugar (from fruit -- fructose).
Q: Thanks for all of the information which is very beneficial I must say. My question to you is what's the best type of aloe vera juice to drink? Also I have heard that the gel from the plant can be mixed into a smoothie, is that true? Greetings! As far as the best brand I really wouldn't know as there are a few good brands on the market. Just make sure your aloe vera juice is at 99% pure and with no additives. Aloe gel can be added to a fruit smoothie though
I personally wouldn't add it to a fruit smoothie.
Q: I WANTED TO KNOW HOW DO YOU MAKE A SMOOTHIE ON full body cleanse? And can you not mix any of the food combined if it says not to?
You can check our website for numerous great smoothie recipes.
Ideally, to make a smoothie, use a base (some kind of fruit juice, water, or nut milk), add some frozen fruit or non-frozen fruit (your favorite fruit), add a little ice and BLEND (for about 1 minute)! Wa la ... you have a fruit smoothie!
Q: Can I use soy or almond milk for the smoothie:
Unfortunately you cannot use either milk for a smoothie as you are not allowed to consume any dairy. Soy is not a natural food and most store brought almond milk is pasteurized and contains preservatives that helps maintain shelf life. You can consume almond milk if it's homemade. We do have a raw homemade almond milk recipe available on our website.
Q: Is there something that will stop me from sweating so much and so easy? I have done this all my life.
Yes! Start consuming Ginger, Cinnamon, and Cayenne every day. They will help regulate your perspiration. It'll take some time, but the problem will gradually go away.
A: You can only have the protein powder if its all natural and does not contain any dairy or whey. Hemp seed protein, green pea protein and spirulina are the best types of protein powder allowed on the cleanse.
Q: I was looking at your recipes for infant milk. I am breast feeding but need to wean. I was interested in giving him rice milk (Rice Dream enriched with vitamin a, c, and other vitamins). However, the website says not for use as infant formula. Why would this not be a good substitute? What would this be lacking? Why is your recipe a complete formula for proper infant nutrition? Please Help a concerned new mom!
Rice Dream is fortified with SYNTHETIC nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and therefore it's not a good source of organic nutrition. If you use Rice Dream, please fortify it with organic nutrition like Dherbs.com Moringa Seed Extract, and Iodine Phosphate Extract (add 5 dropperfuls of each formula to infant milk).
Hi! Thanks for the question. The chia shake should be fine as long as the chia is soaked in the drink.
Eating small seeds like chia and flax seeds can go through digestion whole and be wasted. Soaking, sprouting, and grinding before consumption increases the likely hood that the small seeds will get digested and their nutrients utilized properly.
Hope this helps,

Q: Truth indeed. I just finished watching this youtube video, on mass control, fluoridation, and mercury poisoning. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?Feature=player_embedded). I wondered if there were any herbs, or natural rememdies that can counteract this? I am in my mid 30s, and feel as though I am going through alziehmers (growing forgetfulness, absent-mindedness, foggy thinking, ADHD, hypersensetivity to noises so as to find it almost impossible to concentrate). I have my "Back to Eden" Book, I will continue digging for answers there too.
Don't look for answers or solutions primarily from sources outside of the body. There are herbs, but first use your mind. Mental healing! will your healing into fruition. Good herbs that will assist include Gingko Biloba, Ginseng (all types), and Gotu Kola. Dherbs.com Brain Tuner, CNS, and Ethereal Bliss are also helpful for your condition.
Q: Hello, Is it okay to drink the naked fruit smoothie on the 10 day detox. I read the label and no sugar and additives are in the drink. Thank you
A: Unfortunately you cannot consume any pre-made store juices or smoothies. Those kind of beverages contain preservatives and additives to help sustain shelf life and is also pasteurized (processed foods).
Q: First off, thank you so much for your responses to my questions regarding my husband heart murmur and weed smoking. Secondly...I am on my third day of the Full Body Detox & it is challenging and invigorating at the same time. My newest question is...how can I make the fruit smoothie that you recommended for drinking in the morning? & can you send my a recipe?
A few recipes are in the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual.
Use 1 cup of fruit juice (of your liking), 1 cup of frozen fruit (i.e. banana, strawberries, mango, etc.), 1 cup of ice (optional). Blend for about 30 seconds! Drink and enjoy!
Q: I have scare tissue on my lungs, while the doctors doesnâ€™t know anything to do for me except give me cough syrup with codeine, Immurane, and oxygen. I have never smoked and they don't know how my lungs got scared. So please can you help me so I can breath easy again.
There are many reasons the lungs can get scarred including excess acidity from MUCUS buildup due to poor diet. I highly recommend that you begin with the RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN and follow this kit up with the LUNGS AND RESPIRATORY FORMULA, MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA, and RESPIRATORY INSPIRANT. Keep your head up! You can heal!
Q: I have noticed that my hair has begun to get thin in the middle. It also brakes easy when I run the comb through it. I have been a vegetarian since 96'. I don't drink or smoke and I do a water fast every Sunday. I have also noticed that my five year old sons' hair grows very slowly. What do you recommend?
Check out our Hair and Scalp Oil. It is an all-natural product that promotes hair growth and volume.
Q: Is it alright to drink part of your fruits and veggies? I have a fruit smoothie for breakfast, and veggie drink in between lunch and dinner, nuts and a piece of fruit in between and a salad and a piece of fruit for dinner.
Yes, you may drink part of your fruits and vegetables. As long as they are FRESHLY SQUEEZED
Q: I am just becoming a vegan going on 20 years in June, and it takes a lot of discipline. I was wondering if you knew any good recipes for some good vegan style dishes. I really want to establish a vegan restaurant. I have purchased your Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual, and I know its healthier to eat vegan. But, I also understand its not the healthiest due to soy products. Is their still away to satisfy my appetite and well being at the same time?
We have a couple of articles you might be interested in.
Q: How can I make the transition from cooked food, to raw food? Do you have any raw recipes for children? How can I get kids to eat raw?
Children do as you do, so let the child see you eating raw food as well. Fruits are the best raw foods to eat, as they are naturally sweet. Purchase "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual", for the numerous raw food resources to assist you in this transition.

Q: Recently I was diagnosed with HSV-2 after finding a blister in my genital area. I am driving myself crazy every bump I see I suspect I am transferring this to all parts of my body. I have developed a rash on my arm and although it is not blisters and is about 5-6 small pimple like bumps that itch and I am so afraid that if I did spread this to another part of my body, how easy is it to spread to my family? I noticed that you offer an anti viral herb and although I am skeptical I am sure thinking about trying it. I was on a five-day course of VALTREX and it hasn't seemed to work. Please email me some reassurance about your product and maybe some tips about the spread of herpes.
Youâ€™re doing a job on yourself. Read the article â€THINK YOURSELF HEALTHYâ€ because you are greatly thinking yourself sick or unhealthy via worry. HSV2 infects the entire body so rashes can spread to many parts of the body, i.e. the back, buttocks, neck, head, arms, hands, etc. I don't deal much in skepticism because it takes too much energy to undo and most people are skeptical in a biased fashion, skeptical about good things or natural things but not skeptical about bad or unhealthy things, which they should be. All I can tell you is to read the article â€HERBAL SKEPTICISMâ€ to make your decision. So, I suggest you read the following articles, which I know, will greatly help you.
