    Spirulina is the BEST individual natural source of protein (75% bio-protein)!

    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: I am sending you this message because I am very concerned about my friend?s health. 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 have been diagnosed with Pityriasis Rosea which is a skin disease. The dermatologist can't tell me what causes this disease and has prescribed a topical steroid. I don't believe in taking all types of drugs when they can't tell me what causes this disease. Can you recommend anything since I refuse to take the steroids? Thanks for your help!

    A:

    Rosacea is caused by parasites and is considered a form of acne. I suggest you first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX, then perfomr the PARASITE AND WORM CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, and follow this up with the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Use only good soaps like Kiss My Face and Grandpa Pine Tar soap. Use Bentonite Clay (available at health food stores) 2-3 times a week. Always apply OZ OIL to your face after washing and/or claying it. Buy a facial steamer and steam your face every day (c. 15-30 minutes).

    Q: My daughter has been diagnosis with shingles, in your manual you suggest taking the anti-viral, blood and lymphatic, and the immune booster formulas, my question is will this help with the pain as she heals and should she first do the FBD or do both at the same time. She is at the point now that the doctors are suggesting steroids, having severe headaches on the right side of her head it feels like an electric shock and her body is sensitive to the touch. Needs help with the pain if she can't afford to get all three formulas which one of the three could she get now to help until she can get the other two? Being stressed really brings it on. I didn't see anything about shingles in your article that's why I'm writing.

    A:

    Opt for the NERVES FORMULA and HEADACHE AND PAIN FORMULA. More importantly, she should avoid stress at all costs.

    Q: diagnosed by dermatologist with granuloma annulare. Steroids prescribed... Looking for natural alternative to this skin condition. Thank you

    A: We recommend doing The Full Body Cleanse to eliminate the toxins and waste from your system that contributes to the issue. In doing the cleanse, you’re detoxing all of your major organs including your skin, giving your body the reset it needs. Skin issues denotes an issue within the blood. The blood formula in the cleanse helps to filter out the impurities in the blood that show up in the skin. Continuing with the 10 Day Blood Cleanse or the Blood Formula is best to continue the healing process.

    Q: I gave birth a week ago and am at home recovering. I feel like this was the healthiest pregnancy up until I was hit by another car who ran a red light. I was 34 weeks at that time. In the emergency room I did not know until afterwards that they injected me with steroids to speed up the development of the baby's lungs. This caused crazy side effects and at 37 weeks I had to give birth. She is fine, a little jaundice, but overall she is doing better than my first two children. I believe it has much to do with the fact that I took your pregnancy and calcium supplements. Thank You. My question to you is what should I be taking now? I am breast feeding and want to make sure that we are both going to be fine with what I ingest. Also, ever since the accident I have craved sugar. I have not been able to stop snacking. I would also like to point out that my hair fell out with my last pregnancy. I would like to avoid that as well. Thank you for listening and advising.

    A:

    10-DAY ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD CLEANSE! After the cleanse, take SUGAR BUSTER Formula every morning or before you eat anything sweet! Congrats on the new birth!

    Q: Greetings! I have listened and been blessed with your wisdom many times while you've been on L.I.B. Radio. Thank you for all you do for so many! I am writing on behalf of my father. He is 80 years old and before now, he was EXTREMELY active (bowling, golfing, exercising, etc.). In early December he started suffering with severe leg pains. During his stay in the hospital, they finally found he had three bulging disks in his back that were referring this relentless pain to his leg. They gave him so many painkillers that the meds burned his esophagus and he was throwing up that dried blood. He stopped taking those meds and is in constant pain. He has been home from the hospital for about 6 weeks now. The steroids they have him on are supposed to bring down the inflammation, but they haven't. He saw an acupuncturist, but those treatments haven't helped. He has not slept more than two or so hours at night in all these weeks, as the pain is that unbearable. I am not sure what other info you might need, but any guidance you could offer would be so very appreciated. I thank you for your time and your help. I wish such blessings and peace to you and yours! Thank you for your kind words.

    A:

    In re your father, painkillers are not the way because they only mask the symptom (pain).

    First, get your father a magnetic bed pad for him to sleep on. Do a Goggle search on the Inter-Net to locate a magnet distributor. He needs to sleep on a magnet pad nightly. A magnetic back brace also wouldn't hurt. He could wear it daily during daylight hours.

    Order the Headache and Pain tea and give the tea 2-3 times per day.

    Also order the carbon (activated charcoal) and give him this each night (to help remove the pain killer residue that is eating up his nerves).

    If he can bathe still, put him in hot water with 2-3 boxes of sea salt each bath and let him soak for about 30-45 minutes.

    Perform the above for starters and keep us abreast.

    Q: I am writing for advice about a brain tumor. My daughter, 14, was diagnosed two weeks ago with a grade II brain tumor (fibrillary astrocytoma). A neurosurgeon placed a "shunt" in her head a week ago. Speaking with a number of physicians in Atlanta that specialize in pediatric neurology, it seems our options are limited, and we've been directed to St. Jude's Children's Hospital in Memphis, TN, for a 6 week treatment of radiation and chemotherapy (tarceva). We know there are risks, but we seem to have no other choice in the conventional medicine arena. Here are my questions. What holistic approach could we take? The tumor is the size of an orange and is growing around her brain like a vine on a bush. It is also bithalamic, that is, covering both her left and right thalamus. She is an honor student, but we are seeing signs of some erosion i.e. she takes frequent naps, does not seem to know when to take herself to the restroom, and is running fevers. The doctors have her on steroids to help with the swelling of her three recent operations as well as something else. My preference is to try to the holistic approach first, but we don't have a lot of time. What are the time-frames associated with your treatment? I know something of this nature will take some time to take effect. I should mention that the prognosis is not very promising.

    A:

    Don't worry about time, just take a natural course. Chemo and radiation will do the poor child in. This would poison her. But this is you guy's choice here! I would give the child BRAIN TUNER TEA daily (2 cups daily) and DETOX TEA nightly. Stop feeding the tumor by giving the child bad food, i.e. meat, eggs, dairy products, refined grains and starches, etc.

    Q: Good Day to you. July 07, I was diagnosed with having the auto-immune disease Myasthenia Gravis. Since then I have had several hospital stays, including a surgery to remove my Thymus Gland...(beleif that this was one cause)and taking many medications, one of which suppresses my immune system, the others include steroids which have terrible side effects...etc. My latest hospital stay, I was placed on the vent and intubated, because of the Myasthenia and an infection that my body couldn't fight off (suppressed immune system) that further complicated the MG restricting my respiratory system. That was a truly scary and painful experience. I am only 32 and I have been searching for a more natural approach to eradicating this Dis-Ease of the body which they say there is no cure. My thoughts are, they are not looking for cures...if they did, that would mean the pharmaceutical companies no longer have reason to continue to poison and make dependent on them those whom they make the medications...which eventually cause other problems...meaning they don't make money if cures are found. The continuous pill taking and side effects are causing more problems than the original diagnosis. Please let me know if any of your products are a possible answer to my prayers. I am desperately seeking...in addition to keeping the faith and staying strong in prayer, a more natural approach to dealing with MG and taking care of my body, the temple of which the creator has kept alive in spite of this potentially dangerous ailment. Thank you in advance for your time.

    A:

    You didn't have to have your thymus gland removed. This gland is the seat of the immune system so the doctors removed your natural defense and then gave you toxins which are really exacerbating your situation. I recommend that you perform the FULL BODY DETOX and after performing, take a daily regimen of RAINFOREST TONIC, IMMUNE BOOSTER EXTRACT, KHEMETIAN GOLD, ACTIVATED CHARCOAL and ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD. You can overcome your present health crisis! Just stay strong, focused (on your healing), and POSITIVE! Every problem including with health is an opportunity!!!!!!

    Q: How are you. I ran into your page on Youtube and subsequently did some research. Very Knowledgeable you are. I have problems with weight, stress, and erectile dysfunction. I work nights if I were to order your Full Body Detox does it need to be conducted in a different manner than someone who works at nights?

    A:

    Basically, you would just reverse the times you take the formulas. Instead of starting at 7 a.m., you'd start at 7 p.m. (or whenever you start your day or night). Just flip flop the time schedule. Plenty of people do this, those that work night shifts.

    Q: HELP, WHAT CAN I DO? WHEN MY DAUGHTER GETS A MOSQUITO BITE- SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE HAS FALLEN OFF OF SOMETHING FAR FROM THE GROUND! THE WHOLE AREA SWELLS, ITCHES, FORMS A KNOT, THEN A SORE AND FINALLY 3 TO 4 DAYS LATER IF NOT MORE IT GOES AWAY. SOMETIMES IT LEAVES A SCAR SOMETIMES IT DOESNT. IT IS JUST HORRIBLE TO WATCH. SHE HAS ONE OVER HER EYE NOW, IT REMINDS YOU OF HOW A BOXER LOOKS!! SERIOUSLY. AN ONION COMPRESS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN USING. HELP! THANKS IN ADVANCE. SHE IS ONLY 18 MONTHS OLD.

    A:

    Apply Bentonite clay to the injured area and it will extract the poison from the bite. Bentonite Clay is good stuff! Let clay stay on and harden for 15 minutes and then remove (wash off with wet cloth or towel).

    Q: I really love what you're doing and you have a brilliant approach in getting the information out to the masses. I just finished watching your youtube footage. Very Nice! I am a Kung-Fu Martial Artist and I've been experiencing discomfort in my knees. I workout regularly. Is there any recommendation you could give me to quiet this discomfort and help restore my body, because my muscles are often sore.

    A:

    Thank you for your acknowledgment, Beloved! Much obliged! Metaphysics: Emotionally, the knees (knee pain) refelcts inflexibility in your perception of the future. It occurs more often in those with an arrogant or stubborn personality, who are unable to bend to new ideas or to the ideas of others. Physical: Knee pain denotes inflammation and should be treated immediately. I recommend Dherbs.Com HEADACHE AND PAIN FORMULA, JOINT FORMULA, ACID BUSTER, MSM SULFUR, and ENZYMES FORMULA. Rub a natural salve product on your knees too (or essential oil of Eucalyptus and Peppermint). Rub knees daily with these oils. Apply olive oil on the knees first before you rub in these 2 oils.

    Q: I am on my 3rd day of the fully body cleansing. I am definitely doing this to lose weight. I am a 52 year old, black, Christian, wife, mother to 21 and 14 year old girls, legal secretary who is 450 lbs. I am to the point now where if I don't do this I'm going to be housebound. I can barely move some days that is why I started this because I feel so unhealthy. I have a question about the nuts. I got all gun-ho and ordered $135.00 worth of organic nuts from nuts.com. I got raisins, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachios and cashews and mixed them all up together (well I purchased 2 lbs of each but I only mixed up 1 lb of each together). Anyway, I was reading about how much calories are in nuts. Should I not pay attention to that because I was consuming a lot of calories in the first place or do I have to watch how many nuts I eat? I have put some nuts in a sandwich bags and basically filled it up and that is supposed to be my nuts ration for the day. I am also eating fruits and vegetables. So far the fruit have been grapes, grapefruit, red apples, pears, green apples and bananas. The vegetables have all been in a salad: tomatoes, celery spinach leaves, carrots, mixed in balsamic vinaigrette. I only ate the salad Monday night all the other times I have just eaten the fruit and nuts. I am also consuming approximately 75-100 oz of water. Sorry I’m long winded I just wanted you to get the entire picture.

    A:

    Thanks for the question, I can definitely help you.

     

    I am currently writing an eBook for www.dherbs.com called "Losing weight the healthy way." I have been a weight loss counselor for many years. I am also a health coach, personal trainer, bodymind nutritionist, and a vegan lifestyle coach. 

     

    When it comes to weight loss most programs want you to lose weight to get healthy. My mindset is to get healthy and lose weight. 

     

    In my health/fitness/nutrition coaching program www.theveganeffect.com I use a lowfat/high carb/ high raw/ nutrient dense/ high alkaline diet to achieve long term weight loss success. So far I am 100 percent in getting clients long lasting weight loss. If you are interested in my program please fill out the health history form on the side of the web page. We could have a free 1 hour initial consultation over skype to see how I can best help you.

     

    Nuts are best kept to a minimum if you use them at all. Nuts are extremely high in fat and have the opposite omega 3- omega 6 ratio that is optimal for health. Seeds are best as far as ratios are concerned. Also nuts are truly easy to over eat and cause your nutrient ratios to be off.

     

    A healthy vegan diet is a high raw fruitarian diet. 

    Example:

    Breakfast: green smoothie. (500-1000 calories of fruits blended with a handful of greens and water)

    Bridge: Dates and strawberries (500 calories) 

    Lunch: Salad with low sugar fruits (cucumber, tomato, squash, bell peppers) topped with fruit, beans, psuedo grains, 

    Bridge: 2-3 apples

    Dinner: Raw wraps (collard greens) with low sugar fruit and tahini

    Snack: Sorbet

     

    Hope this helps
