Q: I was diagnosed with a staph infection years ago it shows up during the summer time on the inside of my upper thigh with pus inside and sometimes blood. What can I do to clear this up?
Please read our article â€STAPH INFECTIONâ€ on our site under articles for more information on this disease.
Q: I recently started a natural breast enhancement routine. I am using fenugreek seed, mint tea, and licorice. After I purchased the licorice, I noticed you can only take it for 4 - 6 weeks. I think maybe I should be taking something for 3 months. Should I get something different such as red clover, and saw palmetto to take with fenugreek, or stick with the licorice for the 6 weeks to see what happens any advice is greatly appreciated!
Saw palmetto berries would be the best thing to take. Read our free articles. We have some articles that touch on this subject!
Q: My feet and ankles swell only do it in the summer months. What is the major cause of it?
THE ANKLES AND FEET SWELL DUE TO EXCESS FLUID TRAPPED IN THE BODY WHICH POINTS TO A POOR CIRCULATION PROBLEM. AS FOR THE SUMMER TIME, I'D HAVE TO GO MORE INTO DETAIL ON THE VARIOUS REASONS. A CONSULTATION IS BEST FOR THIS, AS I WOULD HAVE TO WRITE A BOOK TO EXPLAIN THE VARIOUS REASONS. NEVER THE LESS, YOU HAVE EXCESS FLUID TRAPPED IN YOUR BODY AND YOU SHOULD ABSTAIN FROM MAN-MADE SALT AND USE SEA SALT INSTEAD AS SALT CAUSES RETENTION OF WATER IN THE BODY. I WILL ASLO DO AN ARTICLE ON THIS SUBJECT VERY SOON SO PLEASE STAY TUNED TO DHERB.COM.
Q: Can I do a 45-minute cardio while doing the Full Body Cleanse? The Doctor claims I am a Type II Diabetic and I have decided to cleanse and then do the Pancreas Cleanse as well. I want to workout to tone up!!! Just wondering if I will have enough energy to continue to workout...I am doing cardio 4 x a week for 45 minutes.
A: You can still exercise while doing the cleanse, but we suggest only engaging in the light cardio instead of any intense workouts. Because you're on an adjusted diet that consists of mainly fruits and vegetables, you may burn through the foods faster as opposed to when you workout while consuming carbs or starchy foods. You can drink Green Tea for a boost of energy or consume raw foods that provides a natural source of energy. Foods that provide you with more energy include bananas, spinach, citrus fruits like grapefruits and oranges, apples, almonds and lemons.
Q: Hi, I?m 26 years old male. I got genital herpes this summer 2007, the first outbreak was pretty itchy and painful a little, and now I got another small one. I have been reading your article and the power of mind and have been staying as positive as I can and also putting some aloe vera from the original leaf on the outbreak, and it is going away much quicker than the initial outbreak. However I am certain that I can completely get this so called incurable virus out of my system because it doesn?t make any sense to me that it would just lay there forever. Can you further guide me? I have ordered your Full Body Detox and the Anti Viral kit. You are really making a big impact on my life in a positive way and I am grateful to have found you. Just wanted to let you know that the thing I want to do the most is to become the best possible tennis player I can be.
We are glad to hear of the impact we are having on you. We give thanks to you for sharing! We are here for you. You can ask your health inquiries free of charge via "Ask the Herbalist"
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 am a 33-year-old mother of a 2-year-old little boy. I live in Northern, New Jersey. Please recommend a holistic doctor for adults and a holistic pediatrician in the Northern New Jersey area. I also am having issues with fibroids. I had multiple fibroids removed last summer. Yesterday I went to my OB/GYN and had a histosonogram, which the doctor tells me it shows I have one polyp. In my mind I feel that this is something that should have been taken care of when I had the myomectomy. Is it possible they missed this polyp?????or could it have grown since last summer???I am beginning to feel like I am being butchered by the doctor. Please recommend a good holistic OB/GYN in the NJ area. Also, I do not want to have this polyp surgically removed. I read about your formula called FIBROID TUMORS...it dissolves uterine and ovarian fibroid tumors..also FEMALE HORMONAL FORMULA, MOON CYCLE FORMULA, and others. At the moment I am just all over the place... Please help me to save my body!! Also, since the birth of my son I only buy organic whole foods and seafood. HELP!!!!!!
Sorry for the delayed response! I am unfamiliar with New Jersey and holistic healers in this State. Check Black Web Portal (www.blackwebportal.com).
Yes, sounds like they missed one polyp! That's doctors for you though!
In re Fibroids, we have 3-week Fibroid Buster kit and regimen coming out early next month. I recommend this regimen for your fibroids.
Q: Is there an herb that may aid is shrinking an adnexal abdominal mass. I had a partial hysterectomy in the summer of 2007 and now the dr has discovered a noncancerous mass. I would like to find an alternative under than surgery.
Perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the 10-DAY ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD CLEANSE (which you can perform consecutively). You must completely alter your diet: meat, dairy, eggs, etc. must be eliminated for enhanced healing!
Q: I"m writing to ask about how to COMPLETELY get rid of stretch marks from my stomach, from childbirth of course. Also, how to dissolve cellulite from stomach by next Summer 2009.
Q: I do not see much information on herbs for Lymes Disease? I was bitten by a tick last summer and have not felt the same since. My tests come back negative, but I read that Lymes tests are not reliable. Can you suggest a regimen for Lymes?
The Lymes Disease article will go up within a week. Stay abreast! First of all, herbs are not the best line of defense for the Lyme bug. It's an external problem so you need external measures (bathing in hot water, 2 boxes of sea salt added, 1 cup hydrogen peroxide). Do this for starters!
Q: I wondered why I had such a strong connection to you. I understand now after reading some of your articles. My mother is a Aries, and my father is a Libra. I'am a Taurus Female, and my ex-husband is a Virgo. My current man friend is a Virgo, and my daughter is a Capicorn. After reading your manuals, and articles on a daily bases. Everything is much clearer now. I hope to meet you someday. Maybe in New York this summer, or when you come to the QC know as Charlotte, NC. I love your spirit. Thanks for all you do. In Love and in Light.
I'm glad my articles gave you some clarity on some things. Great to hear! Wow! We have so many similarities! I'm a Taurus, my wife is a Virgo, my mother was Aries and my father Libra! Wow! Interesting! Stay tuned to Dherbs.com and may you continue to enjoy reading our articles.
Q: Back in September, I experienced a terrible outbreak on my hand. Today is day 20 on my FBD, and I have another outbreak on my hand. The outbreak is not as severe as last time. I had an outbreak in my private area 2 days ago. This outbreak was not as severe as in my past. There was itching, but no bumps. I have gotten to the point, where I am going about my normal routine, like I did before I was diagnosed. Any suggestions for me in order to meet optimal health that will reverse herpes anyway?
A: First start with the Full Body Cleanse followed by the Anti-Viral Cleanse. Lastly you will perform the 10 Day Blood Cleanse. You then want to start a daily regimen consisting of the Anti-Viral Formula, Vitamin C, and Blood Formula. You want to perform a cleanse at least four times a year. There is no way to determine how long it will take to heal yourself from herpes but with a proper diet and help with herbs your intuition can only get better.
Q: First off let me say that I am a true believer in natural healing. I have had the "pleasure" of going through serious intestional complications, arthritis pain, foot issues and severe menstrual pain with no real help from conventional doctors or medicine. I am extremely grateful for this site, your wisdom, and your sincere desire to help people. In the very near future I am going to purchase your Full Body Detox Kit, but I am currently on an oxygen therapy routine involving 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide that is ingested (not by itself of course!). Will I be able to continue my oxygen therapy along with the detox?
You most certainly will, Beloved! Glad you find the site of interest! Peace and Love!
Q: My 4-year-old son has had mucus in his body since he was born probably, definitely due to the way I was eating back then while I was pregnant. Every morning he wakes up with a stuffy nose, summer or winter, and every day he sneezes several times and Every time there is plenty of snot that comes out. He has done the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) once along with the elixir. What else can I do to get rid of all the mucus in him?
Give the child "Mullein Leaf tea" (sweetened with maple syrup and a zest of lemon juice). DAILY!!! The child cannot eat meat or dairy products nor refined grains and starches.
Q: I want to start the raw food diet, but do not want to lose weight has i am under weight already. I need tips to gain or at least maintain my weight. I do lift weights as part of my exercise routine.
Thanks for the question,
Losing "weight" on a raw foods diet is a definite probability. But the weight might be excess fat and water retention due to detoxing. By weight I am assuming you are talking about muscle. It is not that complicated to keep muscle while on a raw food diet. The Vegan Effect diet program I created is 60-90 percent raw. Raw before dinner if that helps. I allow myself one cooked meal a day. For the most part the diet is a Low fat/high carb/high fruit/high alkaline diet.
The most important thing to remember is getting enough calories. My athletes (including raw body builders) typically eat 1000 calories of fruit for breakfast in the form of a green smoothie. Usually post workout. You need to eat roughly 3000 calories to maintain or grow muscle mass. Some of my mass building athletes eat as much as 5000 calories. Albeit at a higher fat ratio than our standard 70/10/20 carb/fat/protein ratios.
Please refer to my blog on building muscle ona vegan diet found here: http://the-vegan-effect.healthcoach1.integrativenutrition.com/blog/2012/05/building-muscle-on-vegan-diet
There is a raw organic food bar with 22 grams of protien that can be found here http://www.organicfoodbar.com/products/. *Note: I am not affiliated with them nor do I sell any supplements*. It is however a great bridge to meals.
Besides getting enough calories make sure you are getting around 20 grams of protein 5 times a day to maintain muscle mass. Sprouting beans, nut butters, seeds, and nuts help.
I run a 6 month online health coahcing program that includes lessons on sports nutrition and include a individualized fitness plan. I am currently running a ridiculous half off special to fill spots. If you are interested visit www.theveganeffect.com and contact me there.
Hope this helps

Q: Hi, I am interested in your raw foods detox however, I am in the gym 6 days a week doing spinning, other cardio & weight training, will I be able to continue with my normal fitness routine during detox?
Hi Karen, Thanks for the question.
Detoxing and fitness.
The best way to detox your body is to give it the tools and time necessary to clean house. There are many types of detoxes and many avenues for fitness. The best way to detox is to rest the body while giving it the cleanest foods and herbs. However, some light forms of exercise like yoga, swimming, jogging, pilates are acceptable because they are light and won't require the amount of nutrients to repair and replenish. A raw food detox is sublime and is one fantastic step towards a healthier body and mind. I encourage you to try it.
What I would do is scale back on the exercise for the length of the detox and have fun! Go hiking and enjoy nature. A light jog instead of a spin class. I guarantee you will not lose strength or endurance during the detox. Intense exercise increases the bodies need for nutrients and protein.
Imagine if you will you have a desk at work. And work keeps piling up and no matter how you try to efficiently make it through you can't seem to get ahead. What detoxing is designed to do is give yourself the time to clean your desk. The most efficiently way for that to happen is to stop the work from coming in. Heavy exercise may increase your workload. You want your body to be in a cleaning mode and not a repair mode.
Again I would continue exercises that are light and stimulating. You want increased blood flow and you want to aid you lymph system to pump efficiently.
Lastly, if you are training for an event it may not be the best time to detox. Detoxing symptoms can throw you off your game. Best time to detox is the off season.
Hope this answers your question.
As well as being the raw food fitness coach at www.dherbs.com I also run my own health, nutrition, and fitness company called The Vegan Effect. I have a six month health coaching program and a three month fitness coaching program that includes a 90 day plan and 6 customized nutrition lessons. If you are interested in either feel free to have a free 1 hour consult with me over skype. Just fill out the form here: http://the-vegan-effect.healthcoach.integrativenutrition.com/forms . Look forward to hearing your progress!

Q: Hello, this is my 2nd time doing the full body cleanse. I did it last year so now I'm doing it again. I started on Monday 3/9 and since have lost 5 lbs. Is that normal? Also why do you recommend Distilled water and not Spring and/or filtered (Brita). I have always drank a lot of water but roughly how many times a day should I urinate and how many times a day should I make a BM? When I did it the first time last year it was late Spring early Summer and incorporated a lot of walking which helped out a lot. This time not so much due to the horrible NY weather. I would appreciate you answering my questions and getting back to me at your earliest convenience. Thanks
A: Everyone's body is different and responds to the regimen differently. Losing 5 pounds in days is okay. Distilled water is the best type of water that helps to detox the body. You should be drinking half your body weight in water. Anything you put into your body you can expect it to come out. Bowel movements and urination is directly related to the foods and beverages you're consuming. Be sure that you're consuming three regular meals a day; eating fruits and vegetables with fiber.
Q: You are absolutely right. I just read this e-mail but went to the market earlier and really had to look at myself. I have more money on my feet than I wanted to spend on what I put into myself. I am happy that I made that distinction and choose organic. Money is no option when it comes to my health anymore. Thanks for keeping it real. That?s exactly what I need! Today is my first day and I am extremely excited about living a different life. Ok, I'm ready to cleanse...again. I've decided to focus on cultivating my feminine self so I've purchased your Female Cleanse as a start. I have one question though. I was wondering if adding 15 minute sunbathing to the cleanse would be helpful? The sun appears to be quite healing so I thought it may complement the cleanse. Also, would it be unwise to start the cleanse if one is on their cycle?
Sunbathing won't hurt your cleanse. Not at all! And no, being on your menses also won't hurt or impair your cleanse.
