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: 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: 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 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: 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 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: 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: 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: 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: I have a fast beating heart, I am 40 years, male living in India.
I would recommend that you perform our Full Body Detox first and foremost. After the 3-week regimen, take 3 capsules daily of our Cardio-Vascular Formula and Circul-Aid formula and you will notice a big difference.
Q: Is it safe and effective to do a Master Cleanse & Fast for 10 days. If not, What would be a more effective way to detox and lose weight in a comparable time frame?
You can absolutely do the master cleanse for 10 days. You should keep exercise to a minimum during the fast. Stop if illness occurs or you feel exhausted of course.
Although weight-loss occurs during fasting it is not a long term solution to weight loss. Most cleanses achieve the 1 lb a day weight loss depending on water weight lost. Juice fasting is another route to go. You should consider a dietary program such as a low fat high raw vegan diet for sustainable fat loss.
Hope this answers your question,
