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: How do I get the songs on the meditation section of your website on cd? Can you please prvide artist info thanks?
Track 1 and 3 are by Wah! CD name: jai jai Jai
Track # 2 "The Wind" is by Kitaro
Q: When I use the OZ OIL my outer skin is very soft and subtle. However deep down in the skin I feel very itchy. I have been assuming this is the effect of the oil doing its job. After a few weeks I got the feeling that I should try to loofa off the top layers of skin so the under skin could rejuvenate its self. I suppose I am writing because I want to check to make sure that the deep itching truly is a positive healing process before I purchase another bottle. Also to prompt you for any other ideas you might have to help my condition. It is purely beauty based btw I don't have any skin illness.
The itching is a natural side effect that a healing crisis is taking place. Keep using the Oxy Oil at your discretion.
Q: I just received an intense, deep tissue massage last night. Will the toxins released be harmful to my baby while nursing? I fed him a bottle this morning just in case, but I'd like to know for future reference.
No ... not at all! The Body Intelligence makes sure your baby does not get poisons via the breasts as your breasts are not eliminative channels like the colon, liver, lungs, kidneys, etc. NOT TO WORRY!
Q: The jackrabbit product sounds great, but my question is, how are High blood pressure and other major diseases affected by the product. I will be purchasing the FULL BODY DETOX and colon cleanse products. Thank you.
Any products such as JACKRABBIT FORMULA that increases and enhances blood circulation is going to help with all other diseases by improving blood flow throughout the body. Herbs are food and herbs are healing. Each herb provides over 50 different functions! That's right! 50 FUNCTIONS!!!!!!
Q: I read many of your articles, they are so true. I enjoyed reading them so much. Thank you for all your help and support. I have a question, what do you think of red marine algae as an inhibitor of HPV? What do you think of acupuncture if used in combination with the herbal treatment? My friend is a doctor but not satisfied with the way disease is managed. She is not happy at work and her wishes are to learn about natural cures so she can really help patients. How can she continue her path to learn about herbs? Please any advise.
Thank you for your words, Beloved!
Glad you enjoy the articles! We write them for the people.
In re Red Marine Algae, it is a powerful sea vegetation. For HPV, we view it entirely different from the medical world. It is only toxicity. We don't want to only address one problem (disease), but the entire body. The body is wholistic. So we don't want to inhibit HPV. We want to purify the body.
Accupuncture and herbology work wonders together! Great combination!
Your doctor friend may have become a doctor because her life purpose is in the area of service via healing, but natural healing. Western medicine may have been her springboard to get her involved. Now it seems it's time for her to get out of unnatural health and into natural health and healing.
To learn about herbs, she should buy great herbal books, study herbs, experiment with herbs, etc. She can become whatever she desires to become. She should follow her heart!
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: My son is 5 years old. At first I thought he was just shy kid. I noticed is shyness is holding him back at school, including friends and family. He is withdrawing. I read about anxiety, it sounds 100% like him. He used to be so happy, now mood swings, and gets angry quick. What can I do to help him?
Give our Magical Alchemical Elixir a try for your son!

Q: I am experiencing a lot of gas. It doesnâ€™t smell and when I go to the bathroom it rips out with a loud noise. Also my stomach sounds like it is growling all day is that gas rolling around?
Q: What is the best way for a Vegan to get vit? B 12? What do you think about essential oils? Have you heard of the Young Living brand? I work with a woman who says she has eczema, but it is deep purple and very painful. I have never seen anything like it, but her doctors want to try chemo to get rid of it. Doctors are so brilliant. Why do so many people go to get punished by them?
FOR B12, EAT PLENTY OF GREEN VEGETABLES OR TAKE VITAMIN B 12. I HAVE HEARD OF YOUNG LIVING BRAND. ESSENTIAL OLIS ARE ESSENTIAL OILS. YOUNG LIVING IS JUST A BRAND. THE OILS ARE THE SAME. YL OFFERS GOOD OILS. I ENDORSE THEM! GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY! CHEMOTHERAPY FOR ECZEMA? PLEASE TELL ME YOUR FRIEND HAS BRAINS AND KNOWS NOT TO FALL FOR THIS. PLEASE HAVE HER READ MY ARTICLE ON â€ECZEMAâ€. I STAY AWAY FROM DOCTORS AT ALL COSTS!
Q: I am writing to find out if the 10 day cleanser is better for me? I have 3 to 5 bowel movements a day. I still have a protruding stomach area. I do not have a gallbladder or thyroid. My stomach constantly makes these growling sounds.
Q: Should we use herbal extracts that have alcohol in them and what should we do for tooth decay or a deep tissue cleanse of the gum? I have old cavities but I am not really trying to go to the dentist.
I don't recommend alcohol-based extracts, Beloved. For your dental problems, I wrote up 2 articles that are very informative: "I DON'T WANT TO GO TO THE DENTIST BUT I HAVE TO!" "BEWARE OF TOOTHPASTE AND DENTAL HYGIENE PRODUCTS"
Q: I'm having pain in my chest near my heart, its like little bubbles of pain and I'm afraid it may be serious. It's sporatic, I'm 37 year old female. Could you tell me what this could possibly be and if there's anything natural I can take for it? Your advice is greatly appreciated. Sounds like Angina Pectoris (heart pain)!
Q: YOU ARE PROBABLY WELL AWARE RIGHTNOW THAT I'M 45 AND I HAVE FIBROIDS. FOR THE PAST 3 YEARS I HAVE HAD A COCONUT OIL CRAVING. DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MAYBE LACKING WHY I CRAVE COCONUT OIL. I LIKE TO FREEZE IT AND THEN CRUNCH ON IT IN ITS SOLID STATE. I KNOW IT SOUNDS STRANGE BUT I STARTED THIS HABIT ABOUT 3 YEARS AGO. I DO NOT KNOW IF IT IS THE MASSIVE BLOOD LOSS DUE TO FIBROIDS, THAT HAS RESULTED IN THIS WEIRD CRAVING. I JUST DONT TAKE ONE TBSP, I TAKE ALOT MORE AND I CANT, AFFORD IT AND I KNOW THAT THIS HABIT IS NOT GOOD FOR ME.
I don't know the exact reasons why you are craving frozen coconut oil but clearly you are lacking something and your Body Intelligence instructed you to eat frozen coconut oil. The oil is perhaps serving as a vehicle for the fibroid debris so as to pull what debris it can out of your body. Coconut oil is natural so I don't see anything wrong with your newfound custom. As long as you're fine with it, keep doing it.
Q: I have been off the full body cleanse for about a month, what I have noticed, when I haven't drank the amount of water needed, my anus begins to hurt as if I have heroics, I cannot wipe without having pain. I drink water, it seems all is fine. I ate fried chicken for the first time, in 3 months, and agin notice pain. So, I need the water, but what I explained, does it sounds right. I have been eating more veggies and fruit, in the last couple days, as well.
Q: I am listening to you on Rainbow soul talking about cellulite and stretch marks and it sounds as if you have just given up on the black female race like there is no help for big women.
Dherbs.com: I haven't given up on big Black women at all. The fact is that most big Black women BLACK discipline and will not do what is necessary. The simple fact that they blew up in the first place says a lot (i.e. poor self-esteem, low self-image, unhappiness, undisciplined, etc.)
That is another story though cause I'm not big AT ALL!! but I am a black female.
Dherbs.com: I'm writing an article soon on Black women and obesity: causes/origins, dangers, and solutions. Now does this sound like I have given up????
ANYWAY - my question to you is - Since January 8, 2007 I stopped eating meat and I saw a tremendous result in my complaint areas.
Dherbs.com: Good for you!
Now I'm pregnant and read that protein develops the babies brain so I started eating meat until I have the baby.
Dherbs.com: LORD HAVE MERCY!!!! I greatly disagree with this, but it's your choice. I have 3 vegan-vegetarian children. Their mothers didn't eat meat during their pregnancies. You don't have to worry about the development of your baby's brain. The body intelligence has that covered. Meat is not protein unless you eat it raw (but the WHOLE animal must be eaten)!!!
Is it safe to drink protein shakes to replace the protein instead of eating meat?
Dherbs.com: You can't get bio-protein from protein shakes. Protein shakes are made from waste products (i.e. radiated soy, whey, etc.). If you really want natural proteon, check out our Bio-Protein we sell. It's 100% all-natural. But remember, protein is in every natural food you eat. How do herbivore animals in the wild get their protein since they don't eat meat???
Regardless of how you view me, thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!
Q: Hi. I am working to improve my life both spiritually and physically. I believe that once my life spiritually is in order all else will follow - abundant health, prosperity, joy, etc. I know that I have a lot of deep emotional scars, some known and unknown that need to be uprooted and diffused. I am currently going through the Sedona Method home course and want to know what else I can do to aid in my permanent emotional releasing process?
I think you will benefit from a spiritual consultation, Beloved. Please consider scheduling a consultation so we may interact one-on-one and not via a general e-mail. I am more effective via discovering your vibrational diagnosis. Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.com. Please read some of our free articles too - the ones that resonate with you!
Q: I'm a so-called diabetic, is it really okay to sweeten the tea with honey or maple syrup (these are no no's in the medical field!)? I'm not the best at swallowing pills-can I take the herbs out of the capsule and take it? I know this one sounds crazy, but I'm 32 and over a period of time, I have developed or formed rolls or dents on certain areas of my scalp. I guess it's hereditary-my father has them as well. I hate it! It's an eyesore to me. Is there anything natural for this? Lastly, could you say a prayer for me so that I may make a few wholesale deals (real estate) this month? Iâ€™m trying to create streams of income so that I may parolee' these monies into other things (i.e. health, prosperity, testimony to others).
I DON'T RECOMMEND HONEY. BUT MAPLE SYRUP IS OKAY. STEVIA IS EVEN BETTER! YOU SURE CAN! JUST WORK AT CONSTANTLY CLEANSING YOUR BODY, CHANGING YOUR DIET AND VISUALIZING HOW YOU DESIRE YOUR HEAD/BODY TO BE/APPEAR. SURE, I WILL SEND ENERGY YOUR WAY, BELOVED!
