Q: I've enjoyed learning from your website. I heard you on fm 102.5 in ATL. my question is regarding buying juices until I get a juicer. Can you recommend any particular one or what to look for when buying a juicer.
Good fruit juice brands include Lakewood and Knudsen. In re juicer, for the most part any juicer will do if it JUICES! Stainless steel is BEST! Look for a juicer made of stainless steel.
Q: I am wondering who makes (Dherbs or a 3rd party) your products, where and in particular if you use organic herbs or not. I couldn't find any info on the contents of your products on the site. Maybe I didn't look hard enough.
We make every Dherbs formula and would never entrust a 3rd party to make our formulas. NEVER! We use organic herbs when available. This means we use about 60% organic herbs as many herbs are not certified organic and we have no choice but to use non-organic herbs when a formula calls for it, as again, every single herb you may need for a formula is not organic. This is just being truthful with you, Sir! However, we activate the intelligence of the non-organic herb via the plant's deva so we still get what we are looking for and so do the people/customers!
Q: I started my full body detox program yesterday and this morning I stopped into Jamba Juice to get a wheatgrass shot. I also got a pomegranate juice, strawberry, peach and mango drink with a mega green tea boost...I drank maybe about 4 oz of the drink and trashed it. I had the worst headache I've ever experienced in my life! Was it from the sugar in the juice? They claim to be all-natural or was it from the fasting? Would you recommend this establishment for those seeking to get their body clean?
It's best to stay on raw fruit and vegetable juices during your detox. Or, try some of the recipes for smoothies, vegetable juice, and delicious herbal teas mentioned and listed in the Full Body Detox Companion ($20)
Q: Have you heard that drinking beet juice with a table or teaspoon of black strap molasses gets rid of fibroids? Beet juice purifies the blood. But, this has to be done everyday.
A: Beet juice is a great blood purifier and excellent for supplementary use. But in order to fully eliminate fibroids, you should consider performing the Fibroid Cleanse, as it naturally works to strengthen and purify the female reproductive system while helping with the reduction of fibroids.
Q: Everything you said I believe and it makes sense to do. I believe in natural cures and holistic medicine. I did not get the answer to two of my questions. Number one how long will it take to heal my kidneys if I do what you said and number two have you ever help anyone on dialysis? If so how long did it take for them to get off of dialysis? Please answer back.
Please read the DHERBS article "How Long Will I See Improvements After Taking the Herbs" under Articles on our site.
Q: Hotep, Can You juice Collard Greens for your Arthritis, if not what food plants are good to juice?
Don't juice collard greens. Juice parsley, cilantro, spinach, and celery.
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: I have been drinking nettles tea as well as parsley juice and a tea made of marshmallow, gravel and hydrangea roots to control my potassium levels. I have noticed that my potassium numbers are less controllable now that I do dialysis once or twice a week. I know they give me a â€œK-bath" and I suspect that it keeps my potassium higher to discourage me from eating fruits and veggies and to make me feel jittery enough to keep going back. Actually the doctor told me not to juice or eat fruits at all. I will be ordering your FULL BODY DETOX this week, However, I want your input on how to control my potassium.
You control your potassium levels by not worrying about it - eating how God intended you to eat. Beloved, just eat NATURAL food (fruits, vegetables, seed, and nuts) and you'll be all right. P.S. - apples and bananas are good sources of potassium!
Q: My sister is 26 and has been diagnosed with fibroid tumors. Will it help if she starts drinking neem leaves juice or Vernonia amygdalina juice?
Q: If you could only consume one of these juices every day which would it be green juice or wheatgrass juice.
I'd probably opt for vegetable juice despite the fact that wheat grass is very nutritional.
Q: Can you give me more examples of a raw diet ? I am starting the Full Body Cleanse and right now I'm thinking only of salads fruits and veggies. But I don't know if these above examples will keep me full and satisfied for three weeks. I just invested in a juicer and a new blender.
A typical detox raw food program looks like this
Green smoothie: 1 1/2- 2 cups water / 1 cup greens / 3-5 medium pieces of fruit blended.
(see "Green Smoothie Revolution" Boutenko for more info)
Bridge: 2-3 medium sized fruits
Raw Wraps: collard greens as wraps/ tomato, cucumber, bell pepper / fresh herbs / Sauce (salsa/tahini/guacamole/ etc))
Bridge:2-3 medium pieces of fruit
Raw pasta: Zuchini sliced with a potato peeler / veggies / Homemade pasta sauce made in blender
Snack: Sorbet: Blended frozen fruit in a blender
Hope this helps,

Q: What foods can I juice to get the proper daily amount of minerals, vitamins? I dont want to take supplements. Feel free to direct me to a link or website etc. Thank you for your time! Peace!
You can juice fruits and vegetables for nutrition, Beloved. Jucie fruits and vegetables separately though! They all provide nutrition. Fruits and vegetables are the best
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 am very much aware of herbs ayurvedic and regular from a child. What makes your product lets say for the lymph and blood work better than another brand. Lets say it has the same key ingredients that is specifically for lymph and blood. Why would you need 25 herbs in a blend opposed to just the main 3 for the specific organ or purpose. I am so tired of trying everything, and want to be on a trusted regimen. I already prepared oppose to me buying each herb single and mixing it myself. My goal as a healer is to be well rounded in all the blending of herbs for specific uses. The best place to start the healing process is within yourself and I have been curious about Dherbs.
I mean, why only use the top 3 herbs available when so many other good herbs (i.e. alterative herbs, which are good for the blood) exist and are available? Why shortchange the people? Why not be unique? Why not give people the best BLOOD herbs from Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Native American Medicine, Traditional African Medicine, Traditional European Medicine, etc.? If you take the best herbs from around the world and use in your formulations and compounds, it makes a statement that your products are indeed truly for humanity. Who else is doing this? Who else even thinks like this? Our formulas contain many exotic herbs that are very expensive (for other herbalists and manufacturers) and we pride ourselves on going the extra mile to get and provide the BEST for the people (customer), especially if those exotic herbs are available and not curtailed by government regulations (which many are). And in addition to above, providing these unique herbal formulations and compounds for a very economical and reasonable cost. To be the BEST formula, the formula would have to contain the BEST organ-gland specific herbs from around the world. Now THIS, is what makes Dherbs.com unique, at least in my opinion. However, the products speak for themselves. We are the BEST and provide the BEST!
Q: I'd like your input on wheatgrass. I juice 1-2 oz. per day. Your thoughts would be great.
Wheat grass is great. Very nutritious and energizing! Rich in chlorophyll, minerals and trace elements, B-vitamins (including B-17 which is good for healing and prevention) and many other wonderful things.
Q: I read in the FULL BODY DETOX COMPANION that I received that I can have fruit juice. I know it's best if I make it myself, but can I drink organic apple juice?
Q: Is it better to eat one meal a day, just juice?
No, your body will be unable to operate efficiently, and you may suffer from low energy levels, impaired focus, low concentration, and other symptoms. Your body needs NUTRIENTS from food in order to perform efficiently. You may drink fresh juice, but eat raw foods so your body can get what it needs.
Q: Lunch is organic salad dressing allowed or maybe fresh lemon juice and some extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) (cold pressed)
Organic salad dressing is a healthy alternative, but because they're bottled they usually contain preservatives to sustain their condition on store shelves. We recommend sticking to raw and fresh ingredients like using extra virgin olive oil as a base for homemade dressings. Adding apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, sea salts and other spices are common ingredients for homemade dressings.
