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.
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: Do you have any advice for one who would like to start a garden. Also, where should I get my seeds, should they be so called organic? What are your thoughts on the upside down planters?
I say DO IT! GO FOR IT! Look for organic seeds, perhaps on the Inter-net (organic seeds, organic gardening, etc.) Give the upside down planters a try! Experiment!
Q: I have been healthy until the last year, when a abdominal hernia developed. I have done water fast for 2 weeks to heal this without affect. Do you recommend an herbal treatment for this condition?
I RECOMMEND THE FULL BODY DETOX AS WELL AS ACUPRESSURE OR ACUPUNCTURE TO HELP THIS CONDITION. ALWAYS DETOXIFY YOUR BODY.
Q: In the Full Body Detox booklet it states I can have wild rice if I need something warm. I really don't like wild rice, but can I make myself a vegetable soup which I prefer. To me its more filling then the rice.
DHERBS: Sure! Simply eat your vegetable soup instead of wild rice.
Also I have been having sweet cravings lately. Is there anyone, besides mental will power to overcome this craving.
DHERBS: The root cause is emotional, however, try drinking Licorice Root or Cinnamon tea during your detox. Your detox may be detoxing some old stale emotions from the 4th chakra (love center).
Q: Do you believe that one should eat 3 meals a day or 6 small meals a day? Sometimes I don't feel like eating 3 meals. Back in the day people would fast longer than 15 days and were healthy.
I BELIEVE PEOPLE SHOULD EAT ACCORDING TO THEIR SPECIFIC LIFE STYLES ... THE LESS THE BETTER. FOOD IS KILLING US TODAY!
Q: I purchased the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN kit. I began taking the regimen of capsules. For breakfast I had water and a banana. For lunch I ate a homemade vegetable soup (chicken broth and veggies). By 2:00 p.m. I began to regurgitate profusely. What did I do wrong? Should I expect to be physically ill after taking the capsules?
Chicken broth? That's animal-based! No animal products, Beloved! If you continue to vomit lower the dosage of the capsules from 5 down to 2 or 3 (for a few days and then work yourself back up).
Q: I read somewhere that it is good to fast for about 16 hours, and then eat. I've tried this with success, and I want to do it again. Do you think (if I am breast feeding) this will be bad for my baby at all?
I don't recommend fasting while breastfeeding, beloved! Think nutrition, not cleansing!
Q: Hi, I'm a 36 year old African/American woman with 4 children whose been trying to lose weight off and on for the past 16 years. I lose the weight but then I gain it right back after I go off of my diet. I know that I need a good body/colon cleanse, but what I need to learn how to do is to eat the right food's to keep my body healthy. I've been conditioned to eat the foods that I do eat, I need to know how do I go about "de-programming" myself from the bad food's and program myself to want and crave the healthy one's? I'm open to any suggestion's you have, even using crystals and meditation. Thank you.
Time is limited here in "Ask the Herbalist" so I humbly request you consider a full length health consultation. However, I can tell you that you'd greatly benefit from a FULL BODY DETOX Cleanse.
Q: I will be starting a fast for Ramadan in August. What suggestions do you have for cleansing during fasting? I do not eat meat except, fish 1-2 times a week. I've been having problems with gas after eating, even fruits or veggies. I usually have 2-3 bowel movements per day. I am a 56 year old male with good health, except for my problems with gas, varicose veins and leg cramps especially during fasting.
Cleanses for Ramadan should be LIQUID-based i.e. Liquid Full Body Detox, or perhaps drinking herbal teas i.e. Detox Tea. To combat or counter your gas (flatulence), start consuming Activated Charcoal (Carbon) 1 teaspoon in a glass of water daily (anytime of the day you feel like it). Work on your colon too. We suggest you try our 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanse to help this problem of gas.
Q: hello, I saw that it says to eat raw fruits and vegetables but I am not a vegetable or salad eater. What else is there best for me to eat to get the best result. Please help
A: Thank you for contacting us. The herbs work in conjunction with the raw food diet. Cooking foods takes out the nutrients and enzymes that are beneficial to our bodies, so eating food in it’s most natural state is best. The raw food diet supplies your body with everything that is significant to good health. The main purpose for the diet is benefit from the food and to give your body a break from the foods it’s accustom to receiving. You’re giving your body everything that it needs, instead of what it wants. In order for the cleanse to be effective you must follow the regimen and diet exactly. There's no alternative to the required diet.
Q: I have read about your detox system on your site and others. Here is the product that I am thinking about purchasing: Full Body Detox I have some questions... 1) Is there a diet plan or eating plan that comes with this order? and 2) I have 100 pounds to lose and am thinking about going on the Medifast plan. That is a high (vegetable) protein diet with no fruit and not a lot of vegetables allowed. Would these supplements in the detox plan help my organs that might be taxed a bit on this diet with very little vegetables and no fruit? I am skeptical about #2...I think raw fruits and vegetables are so important inour diets, yet, I do need to drop weight fast. I look forward to any thoughts that you might have.
Yes, the Full Body Cleanse comes with a dietary regimen prescribing an all-raw foods diet (fruits, vegetables, raw nuts and seeds). This means no meat, dairy, grains, or processed foods.
Q: I just left the doctor to get treated for a sinus infection and the nurse said my blood pressure was high. 132/100 then 130/98. I'm 35 yr old and this scares me. Over the years I have experienced erectile dysfunction and this has really damaged my confidence. I think this is related to this high blood pressure. I want to fast and stop eating all fried foods. I want to eat one meal a day or every other day. I'm just really scared and I need to do something fast.
YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT TO DO. THE ILLUSION OF FEAR IS PARALYZING YOU. DO THE THING YOU FEAR AND THE FEAR WILL GO AWAY? REMEMBER, GOD AND FEAR CANNOT CO-EXIST. HAVE YOU READ OUR â€HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE (HYPERTENSION)â€ ARTICLE YET? IF NOT, PLEASE DO SO AND GET YOU SOME KNOWLEDGE. FEAR RESULTS FROM IGNORANCE, GOOD BROTHER. AND THEREFORE, KNOWLEDGE CAUSES FEAR TO DISSIPATE WHEN THE KNOWLEDGE IS ACTED UPON. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO DO. GET THE KNOWLEDGE, HAVE FAITH, AND THEN ACT!
Q: I feel I'm not in the best of healthy at the age of 34 but what is a good way to get myself and family healthy. My husband and I need to lose weight and get healthy this is the heaviest we both have been in our lives. We need your help and we want to start a family. What do you recommend please help!
I run a vegan health coaching program over Skype that you may be interested in. please check out the website at www.theveganeffect.com.
It is my philosophy that we shouldn't be losing weight to get healthy we should be getting healthy to lose weight. If losing weight is your focus it will be temporary but if you get healthy it will be permanent.
The best way to lose weight in a healthy way is to change nutrient density of your foods (eat more raw vegan low fat foods) and to do a full body detox or cleanse. You can see detoxing options at www.dherbs.com
Hope this helps,

Q: Is necessary to continue food combining after completing FULL BODY DETOX in 20 Days? For example can you consume sweet fruit with sub acid & acid fruit also starches and vegetable (beans) proteins together? I learned in Nutrition that starches (rice) and beans are complete protein when combined together that our body needs. Are you at risk for protein deficiency if consuming vegan diet?
IT'S YOUR CHOICE! OF COURSE IT'S BEST TO CONTINUE TO DO SO. IT'S UP TO YOU, BELOVED! I PERSONALLY DON'T RECOMMEND IT. NOT TRUE! YOU CAN'T GET PROTEIN FROM COOKED FOODS REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE FOOD IS. OF COURSE NOT, UNLESS YOU ARE IGNORANT TO PROTEIN, REAL PROTEIN, HOW AND WHERE TO GET IT.
Q: My son eats, and 30 minutes or sooner he has to go to the bathroom. He is thin, and doesn't hold food. If he eats he goes. What can he take to try to hold his food a little longer so that we can gain a few pounds. Is this behavior healthy? The doctors say he is fine, but going to the bathroom everytime you eat something, is a bit much.
You're supposed to defecate 30 minutes after you eat. That's natural! You are going against nature to have the son to be like everybody else who are constipated, and don't know it. Don't follow societal norm!
Q: Roughly how fast will activated charcoal rid your blood of any drug?
It depends on how often you take the charcoal. You can take it 2 times daily, for 5 days. However, the substance works right away!
Q: I was actually interested in using the FULL BODY DETOX, I know that it comes with a nutritional guide but I wanted to know if it would work if I did not follow a vegan diet. I do not consume a lot of fast food which I am willing to easily give up but I wanted to know how it could work on a moderate none vegetarian diet.
The RAW FOODS diet is 50% of the FULL BODY DETOX! It won't work without following the diet!
Q: My husband has scar tissue on his head. He was hit on the head with a bat by some attackers (years ago). The top of his head is extremely hard like a rock --the entire thing is scar tissue. In the back towards his neck but still on his head is a larger patch of raised scar tissue. It is so severe that he has lost and appears to be losing more hair off the top of his head (I think it's because his skin isn't breathing or getting oxygen. He's tried everything from drinking Aloe Vera and applying this to all sorts of products. Currently he is using the skintight products (razor/hair bump, as well as the coco butter) however after reading your article about alcohol, I know they contain this so I don't want him to keep using it even though we are seeing some larger results than we ever have before with that product. We are both vegetarians. He has been a vegetarian for 15 years. He used to eat soy burgers etc., but has completely cut that out for about 3 months. He is now in his third week of raw food (as prescribed by your website) just drinking the green juice from Bolthouse (algae, wheatgrass, spinach etc.) and eating large spinach and vegetable raw salads. We are using the recipe that you included in your e-books. We will continue on a diet like this for the next year while we cleanse our bodies and keep this lifestyle. However, with all of that, my question for you is-- Do you have any recommendations for him to remove his scar tissue? I thought the OZ OIL would help. In addition, I'd like to buy him the FIBRIOD BUSTER and/or any other fibroid kits- but the website says they are for women (only?). Any recommendations you could make would be most appreciated.
I would tell you to keep using natural products (shea butter, OZ OIL, FIBRIOD BUSTER, MSM SULFUR, etc.) and let the healing take place at its own course. The more you focus on what you don't like (his head injury) the more it will magnify (not heal). His body is programmed to heal and it will but you must remain open to let the body heal at its own pace. Just continue to eat, think, and live right. He'll heal! Just give it time! Let nature do her thing!
