    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?

    A:

    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: 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: As a diet controlled diabetic I question being able to change my diet(to raw/live foods) while I keep up the same rigorous exercise and fitness program without suffering from too many low readings of which I am prone.The program has gotten me off insulin.I also have diverticulitis and seeds and nuts have been a problem for me in the past. Any suggestions?

    A:

    Thanks for the question. I hope this helps. If you are under a doctors supervision I am forbidden to give you any advice that may alter a doctors advice. They have little to no nutritional training but their word trumps everyone. 

    What I can do is point you in the direction of programs getting the results you desire. Those three are Dr. Neil M. Barnards "program for preventing and reversing diabetes" (DVD,book), Dr. Gabriel Cousins "Raw in 30" program (DVD) and "There is a cure for diabetes" (book), and recently The Gerson Therapy has released a program for diabetes (book). 

    The common denominator in all three programs is a low fat vegan diet. The differences are that Barnard's program is a cooked vegan diet while Cousins' and Gerson's program are raw. All get results but the raw programs have a 75 percent success rate in 1 month where as the cooked version of Barnards get results in 6 months. Big difference.

    I have gotten people off of insulin in around 2 months using a high raw and low fat vegan diet. I use no oils and nuts. I do encourage avocados and seeds for fats. However, with diverticulitis you must avoid seeds until your body repairs itself through a high alkaline diet. I suggest getting a bulk of your fats from avocados and coconut. I usually limit myself to a half an avocados worth of fat a day. 

    I would look into those books first and if you are under a doctors supervision bring those materials to him/her and see what they say.

    I hope this helps.

    Q: Can you give me a brief synopsis of a daily routine of the weight release process? Is there a special diet, exercise program, etc?

    A:

    The Cleanse comes with everything you need: instruction booklet, herbs, optional consultation ($25 fee), etc. You're taking 5 capsules every 2 or 3 hours with water eating nothing but raw food.

    Q: What type of exercise is good for working out while on the Full Body Detox program? I'm afraid I won't have much energy and stamina for a high impact workout on a raw food diet. Any suggestions???

    A:

    Thanks for the question,

     

    Exercises recommended:

    ·        Yoga

    ·        Light resistance training

    ·        Walking

    ·        Biking

    ·        Swimming

    ·        Trampoline

    ·        Pilates

    ·        Aerobics 

     

    It's best to keep exercise to a minimum. When you exercise your body pulls blood away from your core and into your limbs (fight or flight response). That directs blood away from your healing response. Also high impact or weight training requires more calories and more protein which will over work the organs that should be using their energy healing.

     

    Hope this helps,

    Q: I am a 49 yr. old black female. When I was younger I had severe cystic acne that left me with what the dermatologist calls "ice pick scaring" and enlarged pores. I had 2 full face dermabrasions in my 30s and have been on retina A from then up until now. I have a pretty healthy diet and exercise routine. My Father and a couple of Uncles of mine also had the same type of skin problems, left with the same aftermath. I use French green clay masks which slightly reduce the look of the large pores and a sugar, honey, and lemon scrub (I make it at home) and I use it on my face. I'm not unattractive, but my skin looks rough and dull and pitted on my cheeks and nose. All the doctors talk about scar revision (cutting),laser treatments, chemical peels, and all sorts of invasive surgeries. I don't want to go that route again and I feel bad about the way I look sometimes. Are there ANY suggestions that you can give that will help me?

    A:

    SKIN PROBLEMS ARE UNDERLYING BLOOD PROBLEMS. CLEANSE YOUR BLOOD, GIVE YOUR BODY NUTRITION. STEAM YOUR FACE. KEEP CLAYING YOUR FACE. IMPROVE UPON YOUR DIET GO ALL RAW FOODS OR VEGAN DIET). A GOOD ARTICLE TO READ IS â€SKIN RASH†ON OUR SITE UNDER ARTICLES.

    Q: I am on the second day of the Total Women Cleanse. I am unsure of the use of the magnets. Do I use only one on the designated thyroid area and what are the smaller ones for?

    A:

    Stick the magnets over the thyroid area (where indentation is above the chest bone, about 2 inches beneath the Adam's apple). You only use one magnet. The other is an extra one in case you lose a magnet. The side that goes against the skin has an indentation in it (like a small dot). Stick it to your skin and where for the duration advised in your booklet.

    Q: I had a question about the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE if it should be taken with blood pressure medication?

    A:

    NO, DO NOT TAKE MEDICATION WITH HERBS AS IT DEFEATS THE PURPOSE AND YOU'LL BE WASTING YOUR MONEY. MEDICATION (DRUGS) ARE POISONS AND HERBS FIGHT AGAINST POISONS SO AS TO HELP THE BODY HEAL.

    Q: I have a question on penis enlargement. Are there any herbs that I can take to regain the size I once was? Currently I am in the process of preparing my mind, body and soul to fast and cleanse my body using theTOTAL MALE CLEANSE, like changing my diet, and exercising as well as some lifestyle changes. So in addition to the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE, is there anything I can do for this issue I am having?

    A:

    Visualize yourself with a large size penis of your desire. Perform this mental technique throughout the day. Visualize your penis the size you desire it to be. What you visualize will materialize. Also, give JACKRABBIT FORMULA a try. The brothers love this formula! It helps in your inquiry/situation as well.

    Q: I received my TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE and started it yesterday (thank you for prompt delivery). I noticed that the white specks I was passing with the FULL BODY DETOX are even bigger pieces with the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. I'm assuming this is still yeast coming out. The first day I started I didn't go at all which is unusual for me but today I went 4 times. The fourth round looked like dark green spinach. Is this from the color of the Colon capsules or is it old matter passing? The magnet in the woman’s cleanse, broke my neck out. I've always had issue with certain metals. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

    A:

    YOU ARE PASSING OLD FECAL MATTER. GREEN STOOLS DENOTE ACID STUFF EATEN IN THE PAST, WHICH CAUSED BITTER GALL TO BE RELEASED IN THE COLON. THIS IS WHY THE MATTER IS DARK GREEN. STILL SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE PASSING YEAST SUBSTANCES TOO - A GOOD SIGN. IF THE MAGNET BROKE YOUR NECK OUT, DISCONTINUE USE OF IT. YOU CAN MAKE IT WITHOUT THE MAGNET.

    A:

    Your breasts should greatly receive help from the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE and the FULL BODY DETOX. After these 2 cleanses, I recommend you use FEMALE BREAST OILand take the FEMALE BREAST FORMULA to further the healing of your sagging breasts.

    Q: Hello, I finished taking the Full Body Detox and I am currently taking Total Male Cleanse for my urethritis. My question is about your STD-Rid product. How differently does this work from Total Male Cleanse? Would I be able to take 5 pills every four hours? This STD seems like it doesn't want to go away. I'm feeling a lot better, but I still have inflammation in my lower region as well as itching in my penis. Also what would you suggest for something sweet to eat. I was so used to eating cookies and cakes, but I know with your products you advise no man made sugar. Thanks so much for your help.

    A:

    Total Male Cleanse and STD-Rid are totally different. One's a kit and the other is a separate formula. STD-Rid is a maintenance formula specifically after STD infection. Total Male Cleanse is for more than just STDs, but also male hormonal issues like prostate problems.

    Drink a lot of unsweetened cranberry juice. This helps with STDs!

    Confrey Root tea is also good!

    Natural sweets include maple syrup, agave nectar, and stevia.

    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.
