Q: Hello, I just started my 9th day on the FBC. With the exception of the 2nd day I have really had a bowel movement. I usually only have a bowel movement once a week. Should I be concerned? Will this interfere with the cleansing process?
Ready for TMI?
Healthy bowel movements are a marker of good health and naturally part of the bodies detox system. Transit time for food should be a day and a half from mouth to anus. Healthy people have 2-3 bowel movements a day. 1 or less indicates constipation. Once a week is a serious medical concern. Food that hangs around becomes toxic and rots. Colon cancer is of major concern if you are not having at least 1 bowel movement per day. I recommend a salt flush to help aid the removal of built up fecal matter.
To do a salt flush you need:
1 liter of water purified
2 teaspoons of sea salt or Himalayan rock salt
Drink on an empty stomach. Best done first thing in the morning when you have an hour or two of free time. It tastes terrible but it works. You will have a flush in about a half hour. You could also add some lemon and tiny amount of maple syrup to the mixture to hide the taste. Do not do the flush and then go out in public. Ha! Give yourself time to get it all out. This can be done every season or when you go a day or two without a bowel movement.
Try to avoid salt the day of and after the flush.
If you have a dog you will notice that after each time they eat within 15 minutes they will have a bowel movement. That is a sign of a healthy digestive tract.
A way to check transit time is to eat beets. Note the time of eating the food and when the visible markers of red tinted fecal matter shows up in your toilet bowl.
I eat a 60-90 percent raw, low fat, high carb vegan diet. It is approximately 4pm where I am and I have already had three bowel movements. I average three a day.
I also recommend watching this video: http://nutritionfacts.org/video/bowel-movement-frequency/
Hope this helps,

Q: My son is 10 and only has a bowel movement once every 3 days. When his ped. Gives him meds. She gives him adult strength because of his size. Could he use colon cleanse? He will take pills but won't drink what you have for children.
IF HE CAN SWALLOW SMALL SIZED CAPSULES, YES! HE CAN TAKE THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE (ALONG WITH THE LIQUID CHILDRENâ€™S COLON EXTRACT). AND EVEN BOWEL MOVER TEA. ALL OF THESE WILL HELP HIM.
Q: My daughter is six years old. Since she was an infant, she had problems with going to the bathroom. I noticed she only has a bowel movement approximately 2 times a week if that. I told her doctor and he recommended the product Maalox daily. I hear you are supposed to have a bowel movement at least once a day. Even I myself do not go as often. Please help
FOR THE CHILD, I RECOMMEND CHILDRENâ€™S COLON EXTRACT. ALSO GIVE THE CHILD PRUNE JUICE BEFORE BEDTIME 3-4 TIMES A WEEK. FOR YOURSELF, I RECOMMEND YOU PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. ALSO DRINK BOWEL MOVER TEA AND PRUNE JUICE AS WELL. THE ABOVE SHOULD GET YOU GUYS REGULATED AND WELL. PLEASE KNOW THAT IT IS YOUR DIET THAT CAUSES YOU AND YOUR CHILD TO BE CONSTIPATED.
Q: My 7 year old son suffers from involuntary muscle movement. A form of tics! What can I do to help ease this problem? It goes and comes in different forms.
Work on his nervous system, there may be damage to it. Massage may help, even chiropractic.
Q: First of all, I will like to say thanks for such wonderful product. I truly believe that I am blessed to come across this site. My concern is this: I bought the FULL BODY DETOX this is my third and final week on it, yet, I have not had regular bowel movement daily. At times, I may have a movement once a day and after few days have another. One of my excitements was, to lose some weight as well as cleanse myself. What do I need to do? My next step is to buy the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I am waiting for your advice as to what step to take next before buying it. Thanks for your kindness and willingness to listen.
Lack of bowel movements means your colon is compacted. It may take some time but the herbs will regulate it. Drink more water, drink BOWEL MOVER TEA and also drink prune juice (especially at night before bed). I suggest you perform the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE next followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I am glad you enjoy Dherbs.Com!
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: Good Morning, I heard about you on the Power XM radio Al Sharpton show. I'm 32yrs old I weigh 285lbs and my goal is to loose 125lbs (being realistic). My symptoms and habits are; Bowel movement once a week, headaches, lower backaches, acne, dry skin, eczema, achey joints, asthma and tired all the time! Because of my work schedule and being a single parent I do fast food 2 times a day almost everyday. My oldest daughter is 102lbs 8yrs old - bowel movements maybe twice a week and the youngest 5 yr old has headaches. HELP !!!!!!
I strongly suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX, followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, followed by the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Work on your diet! Eat more raw foods! Start your daughter off with the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Spend some time reading through our articles, Sir! Educate yourself!
Q: I was diagnosed with HIV a while ago, and have refused treatment. I go to the doctor regularly, but I don't like taking medication. I would prefer to do it naturally. Also, since I was diagnosed, my rectum has been sore from bowel movement. The doctors keep giving my stool softeners, but I am not constipated. It just hurts, and sometimes bleeds down there.
I recommend that you perform the Full Body Detox, followed by the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse. Also, apply cold aloe vera gel to the rectum a few times throughout the day. Instead of stool softener, give Colon Formula, a try! Please read our article entitled "Aids and HIV"

Q: WHAT SHOULD COME FIRST, A DETOX A CLEANSER OR THE FEMALE PACKAGE I HAVE A BOWEL MOVEMENT ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK. I HAVE ENLARGED INTESTINES. MY BLOOD IS VERY VERY LOW, CAN'T TAKE IRON PILLS BECAUSE I CAN'T DO #2 DAILY.I'M OVER WEIGHT BECAUSE OF THIS AND I HAVE FIBROIDS. CAN YOU HELP THIS 40 YEAR OLD.
Perform the FULL BODY DETOX first and then the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. You're constipated! After your cleanses, take daily 3 capsules of BOWEL MOVER, 1 cup BOWEL MOVER TEA, and 3 capsules of INTESTINAL JANITOR. These herbs will help you to naturally release unnecessary weight (waste). Cheer up! There is much healing in store for you!
Q: I did the Full Body Detox, about a month ago, Since then, I cant have a bowel movement without taking a herbal laxitive. Did I do something wrong?
No, you're body is just regulating itself. Give it some time! Drink prune juice at night, and add 1 ounce of alo vera to at least 2 glasses of your drinking water. Just let go! Go with the flow! Refrain from worrying about the matter. Trust your body and Nature!
Q: My daughter, age 16, stays constipated. When she finally goes normally it's around the time of her period. Majority of the time the bowel movement is sooooo LARGE it can't be released or extremly painful to do so. It's so big that my toilets often back up(I have new powerful flush system and it still backs up often). She cannot swallow pills...she gags! what do you recommend.
Have her drink Dherbs BOWEL MOVER tea (1-2 cups) daily. She should drink prune juice too and start eating prunes and figs and just more fruit (peaces, plums, apples, etc) for more fiber.
Q: I am breastfeeding a 3-month-old baby girl and have severe constipation. I may go a week without a bowel movement. This is not normal and very painful. When I do finally go, it is very hard stool. What is safe for me, and my child to help alleviate the problem without losing my milk supply?
Q: I have been using this product for about a week and there are days when I do not have a bowel movement. I have started having gas and cramps. The days that I do have bowel movements it is hard as if I am constipated. This product has not worked for me at all. Please Help.
IT'S NOT THE HERBS, IT'S YOUR BODY! YOU COLON IS GREATLY IMPAIRED AND SO IT TAKES TIME TO BUST UP ALL THAT CRUDE MATTER (HARD FECES) IN YOUR COLON. NATURAL HEALING REQUIRES PATIENCE. JUST KEEP TAKING YOUR HERBS AND KEEP EATING HEALTHY (NO MEAT, DAIRY, REFINED GRAINS, REFINED STARCHES). HOPEFULLY YOU CHANGED YOUR DIET IN ADDITION TO TAKING THE HERBS. THAT HELPS!
Q: I'm on the Weight Release kit. I'm drinking the water and making sure that I drink a glass full each time I take one of the product. But at present I'm very bloated and not having a bowel movement. Could you please tell me what I need to do? This is not a good feeling.
Drink some herbal laxative tea (i.e. senna, cascara sagrada, Smooth Move, etc.) and a cup of prune juice 1-3 times daily. You may also try performing an enema. What you're feeling is natural. The bloating will soon give way to numerous bulky bowel movements.
Q: So with the full body cleanse I see that those are pills that you take. Do you have to take them every day? If so, how long and will they cause you to have a bowel movement?
Yes, the Full Body Cleanse and regimen consists of pills. You take the pills/formulas for 20 days and our Formula #6 (Colon Formula) does stimulate bowel movement.
Q: I have been bleeding daily through my stool for weeks. I see active bleeding, pus like matter in toilet. Sometimes I do not even have a bowel movement but I will feel like I have to go. All that comes out is blood, tissue or pus looking matter. What do you suggest that I do to help with this problem?
Q: Hello, I have a son that is now 5 years old and the doctors thought he had PDD autism. Through prayer and searching I don't think this is the case. He has trouble focusing, slow development, irritability, tosses and turns during sleep, stops breathing at times during sleep, slow speech development, poor memory, and very poor stool movement (often small little pebbles) God showed me Celiac before but I never had the money to really convert his diet totally, is there something that you have that might help with this for his age?
Please schedule a consultation, Beloved. A response here won't do justice to the little boy's situation.
Q: How can I make the transition from cooked food, to raw food? Do you have any raw recipes for children? How can I get kids to eat raw?
Children do as you do, so let the child see you eating raw food as well. Fruits are the best raw foods to eat, as they are naturally sweet. Purchase "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual", for the numerous raw food resources to assist you in this transition.

Q: I am writing you to see if you have any information and remedies for hemorrhoids. I am a Black African male in my 40's. I have changed my diet for the last 3 yrs., no meat, fish, cheese, milk, no dairy, no alcohol, no bread, greatly decreased sugar and salt. I exercise 45 minutes a day, 5 days a week, drink at least 6 glasses of water a day and take lots of vitamin c and a multivitamin but I still have not been able to get rid of the hemorrhoids. Also the hemorrhoids only come out when I have a bowel movement. I have bowel movements twice a day. Also, I have been taking horse chestnut tincture. Is there anything that you know of that might help me to get rid of them. Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Truthfully, thank you very much.
Have your read our article of "Hemorrhoids" on our site?
Q: I am getting ready to go in the field for 3 days with the Military, and there will not be a variety of food to choose from. I started the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN on 08-Jul-08. I know that I can still drink the master cleanse in the morning and drinking the tea. My only problem is the food. Will it be okay to eat some of the food and start right back to eating the right food on Monday?
IT WILL HAVE TO BE ALL RIGHT. DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO TO STAY ON THE CLEANSE. JUST GET BACK TO THE FOOD REGIMEN AS SOON AS YOU CAN (RETURNING FROM THE FIELD).
