    Q: I started taking Holy Basil two weeks ago for about 4 days and then all of sudden my supreclavical glands, and the back of my neck have been swollen. I have had blood work done and a CT scan and they can't find anything. I was put on Prednisone and a Z-Pac antibiotic but the swelling is still there. They want to wait a week and see what happens but Holy Basil is really the only think I changed. Have you ever heard of this. I am quite scared but between my two family doctors and now the ENT they are really stumped. Of course when I asked them about Holy Basil they didn't know anything about it.

    A:

    Sounds like the holy basil triggered a healing crisis effect. The holy basil has gotten your attention that you need to concentrate on your gland at the back of the neck. Try Licorice Root tea, 1 cup daily. Gargle daily too with warm water and a pinch of sea salt.

    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.

    A:

    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: Today was my first day of Full Body Cleanse, but I only made it through formula 1. After taking formula one, I started feeling dizzy and nauseous. I vomited a few times, and then I tried to eat something before taking formula two. Before I could take the pills, I began to vomit again. This was three hours ago, and I still haven't stopped. Blood came up a few times and a few green and yellow fluids. At this point, I have nothing on my stomach and everything I eat comes back up. Please help? I plan to pick back up tomorrow, but I wanted to know if there was something that I could do as to not repeat today's episode and have to leave work sick. Thank you.

    A:

    The toxicity in your body is trying to be expelled. Try lowering the dosage with only 2-3 capsules of each formula and see if you can tolerate that, and then try to work your way back up to the 5 capsules once your body assimilates.

    Also, try drinking plenty of soothing Ginger, Peppermint, or Chamomile tea. These are great for your stomach!

    Q: It's 5 o'clock here in Charlotte. And Mr. Maatra, a lady friend of mine just left after yet another episode of me not being able to perform! Okay, I really think I'm thinking too much about it and/or my penis is really jacked up on something I don't know about. I'm 33, not 67. I took 6 pills of the JACKRABBIT yesterday and today; before that, I took the JACKRABBIT every other day but took only 3 pills. I thought these potent pills would've already kicked in. I'm so embarrassed. This lady isn't going to keep allowing me to get her orally aroused only to disappoint her when it's time to penetrate. How do I mentally overcome this? This is happened on a few occasions with other women. I need to know what's going on with my penis. I need your help...PLEASE

    A:

    Keep me posted, Beloved! The Sexual Health Manual is coming soon!

    Q: I have another question, do you have anything without Senna? Senna causes me to have anxiety. I am suffering with this pressure in the middle of my chest that comes from stress. Have you heard of Holy Basil? Please let me know I have used it before when my life became stressful. Do you have any ideas?

    A:

    No ... nothing without Senna (that's strong). We have INTESTINAL JANITOR but that's a fiber formula. I have heard of holy basil. For stress, try our NERVES FORMULA ! I think you'll like it.

    Q: I had a question regarding the chicken pox and other child sickness. I wanted to know what must I give my 8 month old baby if he do get the chicken pox or other sickness. I haven?t given him any vaccination, so he is clean of all that pollution that they are given the children. Could you please advice what I must do if he gets that. And also he are teething and he has some slime on his chest, I?m giving him some sweet basil and also mint tea to see if he can pass it out. If you have any other bush that I can give him please let me know.

    A: Give your child plenty of immune boosting herbs -- Pau D'Arco, Astragulus, Echinacea, Goldenseal and Cat's Claw. Make a tea of them and sweeten them with maple syrup or agave nectar.

    We have an article on "the dangers of childhood vaccines" on our site under "articles" you may find interesting!

    Q: I wrote to you a couple weeks ago asking if it was normal for me to have an outbreak only a day or two into the full body cleanse kit. You wrote back and told me that an outbreak is the body healing. It is two weeks later and I am still having an outbreak! Is this a good sign? Do you think this outbreak may continue on through my anti viral kit? I have been eating mostly fruits and vegetables, however I felt like I needed more substance and I was not enjoying my food at all... so I bought organic noodles and organic tomato sauce (sea salt only, tomatoes, no sugar, you get the point). Is adding some of this into my diet going to make the kits less effective or possibly not work?

    A:

    The outbreak is a result of your body trying to eliminate the toxicity and impurities from your body. Continue to follow the guidelines of the Cleanse.

    In regards to what you ate, YES, they make the cleanse less effective, so you may not want to eat much of cooked foods. Raw foods will optimize the cleanse. If you are having trouble staying full, try more healthy fats, like avocado, coconut cream, or raw nuts and seeds.

    Q: I have other food combinations that I’m kind of confused about on the e book, this is my first time learning to combine food 1. can I add this to my salad a. Tomato (I think the answer is no) b. cucumber (the 3 below are under proteins, @ the bottom is says that you can mix them with vegetables but in the same sentence it’s also says you cant mix them with proteins...it’s a bit confusing to me) c. cashews or walnuts d. avocado

    A:

    You can add these to your salad! They are exceptions because you are eating them in a salad and tomatoes and cucumbers are veggie-fruits, so they are okay! Avocadoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc are okay in your salad!

    Q: I just started the Full Body Cleanse today! I reviewed the recipe section for ideas but I'm either allergic to the fruit or don't care for the vegetable. Based upon the Full Cleanse process, are there any other food combination or recipes I can do? I made the veggie shake but it was 'spicy' not sure why? Is there anything else I can add? I appreciate any guidance you can provide.

    A:

    Could you explain a little further? What do you mean by allergic to the fruit? Do you have certain fruit allergies or getting a reaction to the fruit? 

    Changes in your body are going to occur. Know that your body builds up a culture of bacteria designed to digest your current diet. Your taste buds may have been hijacked by high fat, high sugar, high salt, chemically processed foods. It will take 3 days or more to begin the chance in culture. You will find as your body cleanses your taste buds will be significantly different.

    Q: I hope all is well! I am writing this note to request a consultation with Djehuti . I can only imagine how busy you are, so I will be brief. But, feel free to let me know if you'd like more detailed information. I am contacting you regarding seeking treatment for severe clinical Depression. In addition I suffer from a severe lack of energy. I'd also like to treat several nutritional deficiencies. I am 35 years old. I have been suffering from Clinical Depression since I was about 16 years old. I began to address my Depression only about 3-4 years ago. Since that time I have struggled off and on with counseling with a Social Worker, psychotherapy with a Psychiatrist, group therapy with a Psychologist, several medications, outpatient hospitalization, CBT therapy, and natural and alternative treatments such as herbs, minerals, vitamins, yoga, exercise, meditation, fasting, and cleansing. But nothing has had any long term benefits. My Depression has become increasingly more severe. Over the past 1.5 years, my Depression has been at its worse. About a year ago, I lost my job due to the Depression. I then went into a major depressive episode that has lasted well over a year. I'd like to ask you for some direction in treating my Depression, lack of energy, etc. If you have some time, I'd love to do a consultation with you. Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I am interested in doing an intense 3-month fast and detox cleanse. I would really like to do a cleanse and detoxification to completely heal my body and get rid of the toxins, impurities, mucus, etc. Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    A:

    Have you schedule a consultation yet? Drugs won't help you. The root cause is emotional and spiritual. Dherbs.com can help you! I'll have an article up on depression by December 1, 2008. Stay tuned to Dherbs.com!

    Q: This question is in regard to my 1 yr. old daughter. This morning she grabbed a boiling hot cup of water down from the kitchen table and now has a 2nd degree burn on her chest. She has a big open wound where the skin came off on her chest. I do not vaccinate my child and the nurses were trying to urge me to give her a tetanus shot which I refused. They mentioned it was a vaccine which was for pertussis as well which I did not really understand. So my question is, what would u recommend I give her to keep infection away? I am taking her to a burn center tomorrow for them to check it and show me how to and how often to dress it. I plan to put silver water on the bandage to help the healing process as well. I plan to do a detox for her soon since they gave her morphine for pain and also she has had a lot of mucus and congestion lately due to her teething. Thank you in advance and thank u for this BEAUTIFUL website I am so blessed to have come across your products, I plan to promote them within my business I have already been directing my clients here (I'm a natural stylist).

    A:

    Make sure you put aloe vera gel on the damaged skin of the child daily. Aloe is very calming and healing. To prevent infection, rub shea butter on the skin daily. Shea is very good for skin healing. Calendula gel (from a health food store) is also very therapeutic. The OZ OIL from Dherbs would be the best healing agent due to the oxygen in it. Alternate between the above oil, gel, and butter. Don't worry too much about the situation. Focus on healing and moving forward. The child will be alright! Peace, Love and Healing!

    Q: How are you. I ran into your page on Youtube and subsequently did some research. Very Knowledgeable you are. I have problems with weight, stress, and erectile dysfunction. I work nights if I were to order your Full Body Detox does it need to be conducted in a different manner than someone who works at nights?

    A:

    Basically, you would just reverse the times you take the formulas. Instead of starting at 7 a.m., you'd start at 7 p.m. (or whenever you start your day or night). Just flip flop the time schedule. Plenty of people do this, those that work night shifts.

    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:

    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 am loving my FULL BODY DETOX. I have realized that I am not as disciplined as I previously thought. Having to make the wonderful changes you stated to return to optimum health has been a trial. I have started over several times. I just hate taking pills...I can smell them before opening the bottle Anyway the doctor said they found Pre cancerous cells in my breast and suggested I have a mire prior to having the cells removed (I have absolutely no intentions of having the butchers cut on me) please share with me your thoughts on these procedures....I bypassed Ramadan to do the FULL BODY DETOXand I'm planning to start the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. afterwards. However, I did allow them to perform the breast ultrasound and mammogram. I had a breast biopsy and that's when they found the pre-cancer cells I immediately started TBC. There is cancer in my family history on my mother's side. Also on a different note I love the videos on you tube. How can I send them to my email to share with others that I know i.e... toxic kitchen, toxic bedroom etc..Thank you and may God always bless you, your family and all those who work at dherbs and supporters.

    A:

    Precancerous cells? LOL!!! This is a fraud to scare people (women) and it works too! Pre cancerous cells means PRE = BEFORE, cancerous cells. Precancerous cells are normal cells and thus there's no need to worry. This is just an excuse to incite fear in you and have you allow them to put you on drugs and/or perform surgery. If the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) is too much for you, order 6 bottles of ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD and take 5 capsules every 2-3 hours for 20-days following the food/dietary regimen of the FBD! Just keep doing what you're doing!

    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!

    A:

    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).

    Q: HELP, WHAT CAN I DO? WHEN MY DAUGHTER GETS A MOSQUITO BITE- SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE HAS FALLEN OFF OF SOMETHING FAR FROM THE GROUND! THE WHOLE AREA SWELLS, ITCHES, FORMS A KNOT, THEN A SORE AND FINALLY 3 TO 4 DAYS LATER IF NOT MORE IT GOES AWAY. SOMETIMES IT LEAVES A SCAR SOMETIMES IT DOESNT. IT IS JUST HORRIBLE TO WATCH. SHE HAS ONE OVER HER EYE NOW, IT REMINDS YOU OF HOW A BOXER LOOKS!! SERIOUSLY. AN ONION COMPRESS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN USING. HELP! THANKS IN ADVANCE. SHE IS ONLY 18 MONTHS OLD.

    A:

    Apply Bentonite clay to the injured area and it will extract the poison from the bite. Bentonite Clay is good stuff! Let clay stay on and harden for 15 minutes and then remove (wash off with wet cloth or towel).
