    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!

    A:

    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: 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.

    A:

    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: My father (age 56 who's between healthy and sick. jogs every morning, but doesn't eat healthy) has pain traveling from knee, back to shoulder, I, myself am very health conscious! but I can't put my finger on this one! His (history) no high blood pressure, non-diabetic, no history of heart attics, stroke etc... but loves to eat sweets.. cakes, cookies, milk, ice cream, etc....I believe this could be a combination of many things, like yeast build up, gas, arteries clogged. Can you help me?

    A:

    The best way to find out is have your father (or someone on his behalf) to schedule a health consultation so we can get at the root of the problem. While there could be a host of things causing the problem on the physical level, I'm more interested at getting at the emotional root of the problems. Product-wise, I would have your father start with the FULL BODY DETOX.

    Q: I am in my first trimester of pregnancy and have been taking your PRE-NATAL FORMULA. I came online to look for other formulas for pregnancy and noticed the HEALTHY PREGNANCY. Cramp Bark is in healthy pregnancy, which you mention in your article it’s not safe for a pregnant woman to use. So I wanted to know the reason for the use of it in the Healthy Pregnancy? What are some other formulas besides the green formula and prenatal are beneficial during pregnancy?

    A:

    CRAMP BARK BY ITSELF SHOULD NOT BE USED DURING PREGNANCY. MY FORMULAS ARE COMPOUNDED WITH OTHER HERBS FOR PARTICULAR REASONS WHICH LESSEN THEIR MAJOR EFFECTS. PLUS, THE FORMULAS ARE MIXED WITH SPECIFIC INTENT. THEY ARE PROGRAMMED. OTHER GOOD PRE-NATAL FORMULAS INCLUDE MSM SULFUR, VITAMIN C FORMULA, AND IODINE PHOSPHATE.

    Q: I am a generally healthy guy and do my best to eat consciously. But I have had these two unexplainable rock hard 'ball bearing' (about the size of small ball bearing that you'd find in a roller skate wheel...they are located just above my two front teeth under each nostril. They cause no pain or discomfort. Have you ever heard of such a thing??

    A:

    SOUNDS LIKE AN ABSCESS BUT THEY ARE USUALLY PAINFUL. I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THIS. BUT IF THERE IS A PROTRUSION THEN YOU HAVE FLUID BUILDUP. DETOXIFY YOUR BODY. GARGLE WITH WARM WATER, SEA SALT AND A LITTLE 3% HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. ALSO, SWOOSH WITH SESAME SEED OIL FOR ABOUT 10-15 MINUTES. DO NOT GARGLE; JUST SWOOSH IT FROM SIDE TO SIDE IN YOUR MOUTH.

    Q: After I had my baby over a year ago I've had a constant discharge. There is no foul order just thin white. I've been to the Doc four times she says I had Bacteria Vaginosis and treated it with gel. Its back! Can I do a cleanse to get rid of this or change my diet. I'm vegetarian but I occasionally have pizza with cheese. Help!

    A:

    There is help for you. I would highly recommend that you perform our Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse. Using a gel is only masking the problem. You need to address the root of the problem, and herbs can successfully attack the root of the problem.

    Q: Hey, Question? What does it mean when your right-hand at the base of my pointing finger [just below my knuckle] lately it has been jumping, indiscriminately. Does this signify that my body?s trying to give me a message or what? I?m 27 (male); vegetarian more vegan, I mediate regularly and keep myself relatively balanced! If u can expand, I?d greatly appreciate it!!!

    A:

    It could denote a problem with the nerve there, physically speaking. It could be a message to stop pointing the finger at others (or even your self). It could be saying "Let Go!" "Forgive!" Massage the finger. Talk to it!

    Q: I'm sorry, I eat Healthy Choice Dinners, and my daughter thinks that I shouldn't, but I told her, I have to eat something, I am watching my weight. So, what is your thought on the matter? I eat a lot of fruit and veggies.

    A:

    MA'AM, YOU HAVE TO DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO BUT I AGREE WITH YOUR DAUGHTER IN THAT YOU SHOULD ABSTAIN FROM THESE DINNERS DUE TO THE INGREDIENTS AND THE FACT THAT IT'S PROCESSED. SOMETIMES ARE OKAY, BUT NOT OFTEN. RAW FOODS ARE BETTER! MAKE SURE YOU KEEP EATING PLENTY OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES.

    Q: Is it healthy getting more built in less than a week? My brother works out, and he's been getting more and more muscular. He is lifting weights and going to the gym. In just a week his arms grew much much more, and he does eat meat.

    A:

    Undergoing any health or body changes within less than a week isn't good. Your body needs time to process change. Gradual steps are the easiest way to introduce your body to change whether it's a new diets, exercising or muscle building.

    Q: Hello, I am worried about my tongue because it has never been totally pink in years and it always seems to have a white cover over it. I use a tongue scraper, not consistently. I have been vegetarian for years but I recently began eating more of raw vegan diet (11 months). I'm assuming it is mucus or bacteria? Can you help?

    A:

    When you have a white coating on the tongue, it denotes the colon is taxed due to poor diet (consuming too many dead foods) and needs to be cleansed. The tongue is a part of the alimentary canal. I would suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE.
