Q: My mother is 85, bed ridden and is fed through a feeding tube; she has this skin disease Bullous Pemphigoid! Her vital signs are good. Is there anything through your broad knowledge and experience that you might suggest for her skin? She is beginning to itch more and more! We have tried all kinds of topical creams none seem to relief her!
At this stage it would be difficult for her to consume capsules. Can she still swallow or take food via the mouth? If not, then it's little that can be done unless herbs will be put through the feeding tube. Now externally, she could try the Dherbs HEALING SKIN OIL. Please read the article â€SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDERâ€.
Q: My wife just get baby so she's busy with breast feeding. Some of the midwife suggested to use additional vitamin K. My question is should we used it or is there natural ways to give the infant vitamin K?
When infants are breast fed, they receive all the nutrients from the milk of the mother and the foods that she is consuming. The infant can naturally get more vitamin k by having the mother consume more foods that are rich in the vitamin. Foods that have a high source of Vitamin K include dried basil, thyme or parsley, green leafy vegetables like kale, spinach, mustard greens, Brussels Sprouts, Asparagus, olive oil and dried fruits like prunes, blueberries and peaches. The diet of a mother that is breastfeeding is very important to the health of the infant. We suggest trying the Electric Greens combo as it helps provide plant-based nutrients that are beneficial to the health of the mother and the child.

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).
Q: My wife is having problems, breast feeding. Complaints of soreness, and pain. She alternates between soy, and the breast milk, to give breast time to heal. We are also considering the IUD, for birth control. I suggested to her the diaphragm, or herbs. She doesn't trust the two. Also, what books would you reccomend that deals with the metaphysics of the body?
The soy milk is really not a good alternative milk. Please read the article on "Alternative Infant Formula Milk," as well as the article "Breast Problems." You'll find answers and remedies in these articles. Herbs are better than inserting some man-made device in the vagina, but it's her choice. Everything has a resonating energy, and the energy from the gadget will alter her vaginal energy.
Q: Is dry skin brushing safe while breast feeding (especially if I brush in circular around the lymph nodes)? Are ginger baths, or other detoxing, relaxing, salts baths safe? Are body wraps safe?
A: Dry skin brushing is safe to do while breastfeeding. It helps promote circulation in the body. You can do any kind of natural bath soaks including the ginger or sea salt soaks. Unfortunately you can't cleanse while breastfeeding, but there are other ways to detox the body safely. We suggest that you try the Electric Greens Combo and the Pre-Natal Laxative to naturally and safely detox your body while breast feeding.
Q: I am concerned about my wife breast feeding while doing the FULL BODY DETOX. I read two previous responses in the Q&A section. One said it was not ok but the other said that "the herbs get into the milk supply in a portion healthy for the baby so that the baby also benefits from the herbs". So is it okay for her to do the detox?
Your wife can breast feed while performing the LIQUID CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Capsules version may prove to strong for her body.
Q: My question is how to provide the best advantage for my baby I am breast feeding. We will separated for two weeks. to provide the best nutrition for him other than my expressed milk and supplemental goats milk? please advise
The best milk for infants to consume is breast milk, so it would be best to pump as much as you can and freeze it to preserve it for your child. Below is an article on alternatives to Infant Formula Milk to help decide which alternative milk would be best if you're not able to supply him with two weeks worth of milk.

Q: I have a question about the "Nerves" Supplement. How do I take this 3X per day without getting sleepy? Since the main ingredient is Valerian root. Do I take all 3 capsules before bed time to avoid this, and does it matter whether I take all 3 at the same time? I'm confused since one of the reviews speaks of taking it as a sleep aid.
Simply take all 3 capsules before bed time, or one capsules every 3-4 hours. It's only a sleep aid if the capsules are taken before bedtime.
Q: I was curious Dherb.com are you going to make available the crystals and stones you always speaks about on Dherbs.com? I have purchased several items thus far and plan to purchase more kits and regimens in the near future. I have searched for some of these crystals and stones in my local community but have difficulty in selecting the stones or finding them all together.
We list great sources and references for crystals and chakras in the Dherbs Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual (available on-line). Look under SUGGESTED BOOKS.All of our Elixirs are made from crystals and can be purchased on our website. These can be used for healing purposes as well.
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: THE STERIODS MY SON HAS BEEN TAKING HAS GIVEN HIM A ULCER IN THE SMALL INTESTINE. THE TISSUES ARE SO WEAK THEY WANT GO BACK IN TO REPAIR. HIS BLOOD ISN'T MAKING PLATELETS AND HE IS ONLY FEEDING THROUGH THE IV AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THE HERBS COMES IN THAT FORM. THE BLEEDING HAS DECREASED, KIDNEYS NOT WORKING PROPERLY. BLOOD PRESSURE IS OUT OF WACK. HELP ME HELP THE DOCOTOR'S. THEY ARE WILLING TO ACCEPT HEBS AS LONG AS THEY DON'T MAKE IT WORST.
Unfortunately we don't make herbal formulas for IV administration. Herbs and medical doctors are a bad combination. The doctors appear open minded, but their ignorance is a liability. Why not stop the steroid use? Read our article on "SURGERY".
Q: I am writing for advice about a brain tumor. My daughter, 14, was diagnosed two weeks ago with a grade II brain tumor (fibrillary astrocytoma). A neurosurgeon placed a "shunt" in her head a week ago. Speaking with a number of physicians in Atlanta that specialize in pediatric neurology, it seems our options are limited, and we've been directed to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN, for a 6 week treatment of radiation and chemotherapy (tarceva). We know there are risks, but we seem to have no other choice in the conventional medicine arena. Here are my questions. What holistic approach could we take? The tumor is the size of an orange and is growing around her brain like a vine on a bush. It is also bithalamic, that is, covering both her left and right thalamus. She is an honor student, but we are seeing signs of some erosion i.e. she takes frequent naps, does not seem to know when to take herself to the restroom, and is running fevers. The doctors have her on steroids to help with the swelling of her three recent operations as well as something else. My preference is to try to the holistic approach first, but we don't have a lot of time. What are the time-frames associated with your treatment? I know something of this nature will take some time to take effect. I should mention that the prognosis is not very promising.
Don't worry about time, just take a natural course. Chemo and radiation will do the poor child in. This would poison her. But this is you guy's choice here! I would give the child BRAIN TUNER TEA daily (2 cups daily) and DETOX TEA nightly. Stop feeding the tumor by giving the child bad food, i.e. meat, eggs, dairy products, refined grains and starches, etc.
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 just purchased the Pancreas Kit for children, for my 4 year old who was diagnosed with type one diabetes. I have been feeding her a raw diet of just vegetables. The diet includes no dairy, no grains, and fruit for a week. I also started the Pancreas kit last week too. I was wondering if there is any reason why her blood sugar levels would go up? All she is eating is veggies, and her sugar levels are at 300 most of the time. Even if she doesn't eat anything, it still goes up to 300. I also know it says you cannot tell us not to give, or not to give her insulin, or not. I am still currently giving it to her. Does the pancreas kit work just as well if the are receiving insulin or not? Or does it hinder the process?. I would really appreciate other advise you would offer. Thanks so much!
Drugs and herbs don't mix! They cancel each other out. The blood sugar will go up and down due to the body attempting to regulate, and normalize the blood sugar levels. Perfectly normal! It's called "healing crisis. Whatever you guys choose to do, simply keep monitoring the person. Ask the person how he/she feels (very important).
Q: I gave birth a week ago and am at home recovering. I feel like this was the healthiest pregnancy up until I was hit by another car who ran a red light. I was 34 weeks at that time. In the emergency room I did not know until afterwards that they injected me with steroids to speed up the development of the baby's lungs. This caused crazy side effects and at 37 weeks I had to give birth. She is fine, a little jaundice, but overall she is doing better than my first two children. I believe it has much to do with the fact that I took your pregnancy and calcium supplements. Thank You. My question to you is what should I be taking now? I am breast feeding and want to make sure that we are both going to be fine with what I ingest. Also, ever since the accident I have craved sugar. I have not been able to stop snacking. I would also like to point out that my hair fell out with my last pregnancy. I would like to avoid that as well. Thank you for listening and advising.
Q: I made the alternative baby formula for my 3 month old yesterday, and she drank all of it! However, I just did some research online and wanted to know what your take on a warning I found online. Caution: Irish Moss has some blood thinning properties, So people taking anti-coagulating medications should avoid using it. Pregnant or breast-feeding patients should avoid it. Infants shouldn't be given Irish moss because it may suppress the immune system. Patients with underlying bleeding disorders or hypotension should use Irish moss with caution. Please Advise?
A bunch of BS! Don't believe the hype! Sea moss is 100% nutrition with no adverse side effects!
Q: Secondly my father is still doing the dialysis 3x per week and getting thin. He has a diet that does not allow him to eat certain things and the doctors are forcing animal protein on him. They say it is the renal diet but it does not make sense to me.
GOD!!!! THEY ARE KILLING THAT MAN. ANIMAL PROTEIN KILLS THE KIDNEYS. IT REALLY DOES! IT BREAKS DOWN INTO CAUSTIC AND CORROSIVE ACIDS.
Q: How come I have never heard you talk about Deer Antler Velvet Powder? Is it because you are opposed to anything animal based? This appears to be an herb, to add to one of your Athlete concoctions.
I think this is a product derived from the antlers of deer. Deer antlers are for deer, not humans! I can't get in on this trade. This industry should leave the deer antler alone, and start using human fingernails. Humans are always messing with animals and Nature. Man is a disease to this planet in his present mentality.
Q: My 4yr old toy poodle, Cotton, has been given a diagnosis of Addison's dis-ease. I don't take presription medication myself, and would prefer not to give them to my animal companions. If there is a natural product that would provide the support she needs, to produce the cortisol that is one of the causes of this dis-ease. In researching your site I see you recommend the Adrenalizer and Kidney's & Bladder formulas. I did not see any product under the Pet compounds section, so could I give her these formulas? If so, how much and how often?
Greetings Beloved! You can use these 2 formulas (Adrenalizer, and Kidneys Formula) by opening up 2-3 capsules and meshing the powder in with the dog food, and doing so on a daily basis. I don't blame you for wanting to give your pet medication. It will only hurt the poor animal.
Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.com!

Q: Is there such thing as, cleansing too much? From May - July I did a 40 day cleanse. The cleanse was pretty much ridding my diet of refined sugar, flour, alcohol, and animal product for much of the time. I just recently finished the Total Body Cleanse, and will be finishing my series of cleanses with the Total Woman's Cleanse. I personally feel fine, but people keep warning me about over cleansing. Also, bringing up the issue of your body being stripped of the good bacteria (along with the bad). But, I"ve taken probiotic pills (1-2) virtually everyday througout all of my cleanses. Should I be concerned with overcleansing? After this initial year of hard core cleansing, I plan to cleanse maybe once or twice a year. What are you thoughts on probiotics? Like I mentioned, I am taking pills. But I'd like to find foods that provide all that I need so I don't have to take pills.
Many people are concerned about what happens to the beneficial intestinal flora after colonics are performed. Personally, I think many people put too much energy into worrying about something so inconsequential. If you're really worried about the beneficial intestinal flora after your colonic, you could always take a few capsules of acidophilus (acidophilus bifidus) or a liquid form of acidophilus (dairy-free, of course). I have never taken an acidophilus product after a colonic. I know Nature and my body too well. I know that my body naturally produces everything sold by man in a bottle, and that is purchased from a health food store, including beneficial flora or bacteria. I simply drink a minimum of 4 ounces of vegetable juice after my colonic sessions. If you're into carrot juice, carrot juice is just as effective as acidophilus in restoring good bacteria in the intestines. Juiced cantaloupe is even better than carrot juice in restoring the beneficial flora. Other natural substances that will help the body to repopulate beneficial flora or good bacteria in the intestines include: Blue Green algae, Spirulina, Chlorella, Irish Moss, Kelp, Bladderwrack, Dulse, Ginger, Cloves, Cayenne, Black Walnut Hull, and Carrot powder. Stop listening to these naysayers and keep doing YOU! You're on the right path!
