    Q: Sir, as an African male who believes using the herbs directly. How can supplements suffice instead of the direct use of the plant source, such as milk thistle (silybum marianum), known as silymarin? Just like the ("so called)" vitamin supplements. Is there a subtitute for the real herb, fruit, and vegetable?

    A:

    Herbs are are plants, just pulverized and powdered. We don't call our herbs supplements. Herbs are food and you can't supplement food, Beloved! There is no substitute for a real food, Beloved! Only the real thing!

    Q: I recently received my order for several vitamin supplements suggested. I am taking all of them except the IRON PHOSPHATE FORMULA. I had a concern about it causing constipation. After two days I stopped taking it. Either it was a coincidence or maybe not but I had trouble having a bowel movement. 2) After I stopped that second day, I heard from Dr. Oz on Oprah that post-menopausal women should not take iron.

    A:

    Our IRON PHOSPHATE FORMULA could never cause constipation. It is 100% natural! It appears you have created constipation through your mind. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE read our MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL! so you can use your mind to heal and not make yourself sick!

    Q: Hi Dherbs.com, I pray that this message finds you in good health and spirits. I have been working out my emotions and I still read your reply to the news of my tumor. I really appreciate your realness. I am recommending my son's daycare teacher to you. She is a one-year breast cancer survivor and I printed out your articles on Cancer and Why women are so sick. I warned her that you are very direct so she will not be surprised at what she reads. She is looking to detox and she wants to purchase supplements. Can you email you if she wants? I will not give her your email unless you say it is okay.

    A:

    Greetings Beloved! Good to hear from you! YES! You may give out the e-mail (at asktheherbalist@dherbs.com ) address. No permission needed. We are unofficial public servants, so it's okay. Thank you for the referral. Peace and Love be into you!

    Q: How many mgs is the Vitamin D?

    A:

    Because we don't sell pharmaceutical grade products, we are not into the measurement of nutrients. The government only requires drugs to be measured so as to prevent over-dosage. Herbs are food and therefore one cannot overdose.

    Q: I just received your response. I hardly know where to begin, this is very difficult for me, but I know that I may need to explain my circumstance in part, so that I can get the correct help that I need. I was diagnosed with herpes in March of 2007. I recently ordered the Anti-Viral Detox System, but your reply message states that I should start with the Full Body Detox first. Aside from the detox's (I plan on ordering both now), is there anything else that you would suggest, I purchase for my well-being? Any additional affirmations, aura sprays, or vitamins and supplements?

    A:

    Thank you for your words, Beloved! Glad you found us! You can heal, Beloved. Everything happens for a reason, Beloved. I'm glad you have made 2009 your year of healing, and reclaiming your health. Start living what you believe in. Belief is nothing, absent works (actions). Okay, on to healing! First, get some knowledge. Read our health articles! Especially read our "Mental Science Manual", to help you work on your mind which is where all healing begins. Perform, the Full Body Detox Cleanse, followed by the Anti-Viral (or vice versa). Take matters one day at a time. The Love Spray, will help you to heal energetically. You should also drink 1 cup of Female Health Tea, daily while on both cleanses. Consultations are also available too, Beloved. You can heal, beloved. With God all things are possible! Stay focused, optimistic, and positive, Beloved! Great things await you!

    Q: I'm interested in purchasing your : VITAMIN E , but noticed that it does not contain Mixed Tocopherols d-alpha, d-beta, d-delta, and d-gamma. It is my understanding that the best Vitamin E to take is one that consists of the above-mentioned ingredients and should also be unspecified and cold pressed. It appears that yours does not contain these ingredients. Can you explain?

    A:

    THE : VITAMIN E INGREDIENTS YOU NAMED ARE ALL DRUGS AND TRUTH BE TOLD THE VITAMIN E IS NOTHING BUT PROCESSED SOY OIL. THE TERM 'COLD PRESSED' REFERS TO "OIL." SO IT'S OIL. ASK YOURSELF, WHAT ARE THE NATURAL FOOD SOURCES OF THESE INGREDIENTS (D-ALPHA, D-DELTA, ETC.). YOUR MEDICINE MUST BE DERIVED FROM A FOOD (FRUIT OR VEGETABLE) AND CONTAIN NUTRIENTS. WHAT ARE THE FOOD SOURCES OF THE PRODUCT? DHERBS.COM COMPOUNDS ARE ALL HERBAL AND THUS ALL FOOD AND CAN BE ASSIMILATED BY THE BODY. THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE

    Q: Hi, I am currently in the second week of the Full Body Detox. It was my decision to do this cleanse because I will be having a breast reduction surgery coming up on February 1, 2008 and I wanted my body to be in the healthiest condition possible (I have previously read the Toxic Tits article, but feel this is my last resort). This will be my first major surgery and I wanted to know what supplements and/or teas would be beneficial to ensure a speedy recovery. Along with my Full Body Detox, I also purchased the Khemetian Gold, OxyDrops, and Vitamin C Formula. I have a history of iron-deficiency anemia also and I purchased some blackstrap molasses, but do I need to take anything else for that? I read that Vitamin C was good for healing, but what other herbal formulas/supplements should I purchase? Thank you and God bless you for all the wonderful work you are doing. I have already referred several people to your site, so keep up the good work! Also, would missing a couple capsules of the formulas in my FBD reduce the effectiveness of it? Thank you for your words of acknowledgment. Much obliged!

    A:

    Beloved, sounds like you ordered all the right stuff to facilitate healing. The only thing I could think of for you to add would be the IRON PHOSPHATE FORMULA!

    Q: Can I take the Moringa Formula instead of the Vitamin C formula, and still get the necessary nutrients that my body needs from Vitamin C? My daily regime will goes as follows: Electric Green Combo, Iodine, and Moringa Formula or/and Vitamin C based on your answer. Thanks.

    A:

    You sure can! Ounce per ounce it contains 6 to 7 times the amount of Vitamin C in orange juice. Although moringa will provide you with a plethra of vitamins and nutrients, you still must eat foods that also bring you these nutrients. Supplements are just that, something added to help complete a diet or dietary needs.

He's a young black man; age 31.He is highly STRESSED OUT on his job and has been experiencing patches of HAIR LOSS all through out his head. He went to see a doctor and is now taking some sort of medicine with steroids in it. I believe you can advise him on a more natural way (DHERBS) to control his STRESS & HAIR LOSS problem.

    A: Consider supplementing with MSM, Hair, Skin, & Nails, Nerves Formula, and/or the Anti-Stress Inhaler. These products should greatly help with the mentioned symptoms your friend is experiencing. The stress is contributing to the hair loss.

    Q: I am taking more than 20-30 herbal supplements a day and am wondering if it's okay to mix or take all of them at the same time.

They are mostly in gelatin capsules. I am concerned that too much gelatin is bad for me too!

    A:

    You are overloading your body! Spread those supplements out throughout your day. Take 6 of them at a time every 3 hours or so. This is best for your body!

    For example:
    7 a.m.
    Burdock
    Yellow Dock
    Sarsaparilla
    Kelp
    Licorice Root
    Oregon Grape Root
    10 a.m.

    50 Chlorella tablets 200mg
    10 500mg Spirulina capsules
    elderberry
    echinacea
    goldenseal
    vitamin e


    4 p.m.
    gotu kola
    american ginseng
    guarana
    dong quai
    guggulipid
    red yeast rice


    7 p.m.
    dandelion
    cod liver oil
    neptune krill oil
    acai

    We do not reccomend Gelatin capsules. Gelatin capsules are hard to digest in the body, which is why we offer vegetarian capsules.

    Q: I had my annual physical in November 2008, where it was determined that my Vitamin D levels were low (17). I did the Full Body Detox in January, which was great. I ordered and started taking the Vitamin D pills after the detox. I went to the Dr. in March, and was retested for the Vitamin D deficiency. My levels had dropped even lower to 8. Was there something else I should have been taking with the Vitamin D?

    A:

    When working on the blood you should never isolate (like only be concerned with Vitamin D levels). The body is holistic, and so is the blood. Focus on the entire blood. You should take (in addition to the Vitamin D) Blood and Lymphatic Formula, Iron Phosphate, and Vitamin C Formula. These help cleanse, purify, and rebuild the blood.

    Q: I pray this message finds you in perfect peace and harmony. As a new customer to Dherbs and a new student of herbal healing, I have an inquiry. I have always had difficulty swallowing pills, even today in my adulthood, so I just purchased the anti-viral elixir instead of the pills. Will this be as effective?

    A:

    It sure will. Extracts work faster than capsules because they are liquid and enter the bloodstream from under the tongue. Capsules are more potent and stay in the body longer as they break down in the stomach. However, both are effective.

    Q: What is the difference between Vitamin D, and D3? I understand that this vitamin is very helpful in warding off the various flu strains.

    A:

    I highly recommend that you first read the article on the Dherbs.com website written about the so-called swine flu. Here is a link below that you can follow to go directly to read the article. "Vitamin D", is a term for the collective group of fat-soluble prohormones which includes that of D3. There has been research stating that vitamin D serves as an important regulator of immune system responses. That being said, I also recommend that you check out the following all natural, plant-based formulas that you can purchase from DHERBS.com, Vitamin D Formula, Immune Support, and Vitamin C Formula. These can all be beneficial to building a strong immune system so as to be proactive in your maintaining your health!
