    Q: Dear Yogi, I read an article on your site about reverse Kundalini (anal sex). I don't know if you can answer my question or not - originally I was going to pose it to "Ask the Guru", but in my limited understanding, Kundalini is tied into yoga. I have been trying to get balanced by meditating, living my passions, writing, art, and belly dancing all unprofessionally, except for the first one (on a very small scale). I have been doing guided chakra meditations and other things, including yoga, and some dietary modifications. I feel I am gradually growing and living my purpose. However, incrementally starting in my mid forties. Anyway, I have been on this path for a couple of years now, and have more happiness and peace than I ever have. I don't want to get into a lengthy essay about my limited understanding of Kundalini, and the possibility of what I perceive is going on with my body (though I am very healthy) right now, so I will attempt to get to the point. I am grateful for my life. I have much more than many people if I were to measure. I feel like I am still blocked, though. About three years ago I dated a guy who sodomized me one time. He was a rapist, long story short and an error in judgement on my part. Though my intuition was screaming at me the whole time. I look at the experience as pushing me further along my path and teaching me to trust, love, respect myself, and defend my boundaries. What concerns me is that I feel that experience is still trapped within me to a degree, and I am worried that it will manifest into a disease. Often when I meditate on my root chakra I start crying. Part of me believes that I can't force anything, just have to let the process unfold in its own time. There is so much info out there that I find it overwhelming, and it is hard to know which to trust. So I have just been going with what resonates with me as far as technique. If you could offer me any advice, I would be grateful.

    A:

    Hello, I would like to first thank you for sharing your story and your experience. It sounds like you are devoting time and attention to the many things, that will help foster a sustained health and healing for you in life. As you have recognized, it is very helpful for us to take intuition very seriously and to honor this innate ability to discern whether a situation will be harmful or beneficial to our growth and experience as humans. Very often the circumstances and challenges presented to us in life, as happened in yours, serve as great teachers in allowing us to witness our own great strength, compassion, and value. I am glad to hear that you have been able to take the very difficult situation you found yourself in and use your experience to create a better understanding of yourself in the process. While it is true that we tend to develop patterns of holding and habitual ways of holding tension within the body; this does not mean that there are not steps you can take to move through such a body, mind, and spirit experience. The fact that you are crying upon meditating on your root chakra is a sign that you have made yourself available to the grief that naturally accompanies traumatic situations such as the one you experienced. Keep in mind that when we deeply grieve, our bodies are able to express the energy that may have potentially been repressed during this experience. The energy of the root chakra is all about our ability to feel safe, strong, and supported. The violation of this energy can leave one feeling ungrounded and striving for our self-preservation. Try not to become fixated on the worries you are having about the experience arising as disease in your body, as worrying can lead to increased levels of chronic stress, which will potentially create an internal environment more vulnerable to disease - which is what you are trying to avoid. It might be nice for you to meditate on your right to be here, to exist on this planet, and to be valued. It may also be very nice for you to take some restorative yoga classes, which can be grounding and stimulating to the parasympathetic nervous system (assists in the healing process). Recognize that the body may be holding energy in a direct response to a real threat, but begin to create a safe, loving and supportive environment to allow yourself to begin to be able to let go of this holding as you feel safe. When working to heal the first chakra, it is helpful to get in touch with the direct experience of the sensations of the body and become aware of the physical experience of the body. This can be done with the assistance of an expert, to help you change the physical expression of your felt experience. We could also do something called "body dialogue" to put you more deeply in touch with what the physical expression you are experiencing has to teach you about how you are inhabiting the world you are in. There are also many forms of grounding exercises which can help to balance the first chakra. If you are interested in being lead through a series of guided meditations, please contact me at megan@ritualwellbeing.com. Namaste, Megan

    Q: In a magazine called New Life Yoga, it questions if Melatonin is the closest thing to a cure all? It also states that our bodies synthesize it but not in a large quantity if you are a night worker (such as myself). Since it is synthesized highly at night. Being recently diagnosed with cervical cancer do you think I should discuss this with a alternative Dr., because I'm sure that the MD still wants to go ahead and start treatments (radiation and chemo). What is your take on this supplement?

    A:

    Don't put all of your hope into a product (i.e. melatonin) that your body naturally produces. Please read our free health information, especially the article on "CANCER: CAUSES AND REMEDIES" and "WHY WOMEN ARE SO SICK" I'd suggest you begin to detoxify your body (see FULL BODY DETOX and TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE on our site). Please read the article on "THE DANGERS OF CHEMOTHERAPY" as well. Chemo is no joke and will greatly harm the body. God did not make the body with petroleum (chemotherapy). The body is organic and needs organic nutrition to heal from disease. You can heal with the RIGHT information, Beloved. But in the end, it's your choice!

    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: Due to what I did with women in previous experiences, from time to time I tend to think, and worry about what my woman might do. She's a wonderful lady-she really is; and she's been upfront, and honest from the get go. But, I can get a little pessimistic about the relationship. But, I do that because I know how slick women can be. I've been on the receiving end of that slickness! So again, from time to time, that creeps up in my thoughts. And yes, I have been absolutely committed to her as well.

    A:

    What you focus on with emotion is what you attract according to the law of attraction. If you continue to give these negative thoughts, your focus you will manifest this outcome. You have to consciously change this pattern to get out of your loop. When you feellike consciously, remind yourself of what you DO want. Allow yourself to create what you really want, which is to feel calm and in love with your amazin woman.

    Q: I hope all is well! I am writing this note to request a consultation with Djehuti . I can only imagine how busy you are, so I will be brief. But, feel free to let me know if you'd like more detailed information. I am contacting you regarding seeking treatment for severe clinical Depression. In addition I suffer from a severe lack of energy. I'd also like to treat several nutritional deficiencies. I am 35 years old. I have been suffering from Clinical Depression since I was about 16 years old. I began to address my Depression only about 3-4 years ago. Since that time I have struggled off and on with counseling with a Social Worker, psychotherapy with a Psychiatrist, group therapy with a Psychologist, several medications, outpatient hospitalization, CBT therapy, and natural and alternative treatments such as herbs, minerals, vitamins, yoga, exercise, meditation, fasting, and cleansing. But nothing has had any long term benefits. My Depression has become increasingly more severe. Over the past 1.5 years, my Depression has been at its worse. About a year ago, I lost my job due to the Depression. I then went into a major depressive episode that has lasted well over a year. I'd like to ask you for some direction in treating my Depression, lack of energy, etc. If you have some time, I'd love to do a consultation with you. Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I am interested in doing an intense 3-month fast and detox cleanse. I would really like to do a cleanse and detoxification to completely heal my body and get rid of the toxins, impurities, mucus, etc. Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    A:

    Have you schedule a consultation yet? Drugs won't help you. The root cause is emotional and spiritual. Dherbs.com can help you! I'll have an article up on depression by December 1, 2008. Stay tuned to Dherbs.com!

    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.

    A:

    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 had sent an e-mail some time ago regarding me having local excision of the vulva. I recently returned to my doctor, and they would like to do another biopsy. I'm tired of going through this mess, and looking for alternative options. I think this is my time to try Dherbs.com. I need to know, what needs to be done for this so called stage III vulvar cancer? Supposedly is caused by HPV, however my cervix is fine. I'm desperate for help, and refuse to go under the knife again and let them keep cutting away at me. They also made the comment to me several times that if I don't take care of this, and it continues I can potentially die. Please help me!!

    A:

    You can heal, Beloved and it doesn't need to be painful. First, I'd recommend that you perform the Full Body Detox and follow it up by performing the Total Woman Cleanse. Stick to a mostly raw foods diet as best you can. Drink plenty of vegetable juice to nourish the cells. Bathe in sea salt water daily. See "Sea Salt Soak" article. Apply mental science (mental exercises -- healing visualization techniques). Very important! I highly recommend as complimentary reading "The Mental Science Manual." Do all of the above for starters, Beloved! Dherbs.com is always here for you, Beloved! Please BELIEVE that you can heal, Beloved!

    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: I read your website on the Michael Baisden's forum and I have been looking with much excitement at your products! I know you don't have time to recommend products to everyone, but if you could recommend something for my 3 year old son, it would be greatly appreciated. In the last year he has gotten the ringworm twice since starting daycare. Once in the head and the second time on the forehead. I've used over the counter cream the second time which made it go away for a short time. And now a month later he is developing a rash, it looks like small pimples, not the ringworm, but I'm thinking its ringworm because its in the same spot. If you could recommend some herbs for him to get rid of this ringworm once and for all, I will purchase it immediately. Just for your info, he doesn't eat meat except at school and absolutely no pork. Thanks in advance

    A:

    Please rub Dherbs OZ OIL on his body parts with ringworm.

    Q: I am 27 years old, and I think I really did it this time, with all my "hair-torturing", because its getting thinner and more unmanageable day by day...it really shows.....I am switching to henna....But is there any way I can get my hair to grow long, thick and healthy again?

    A:

    Stop processing your hair NOW! Take 6 capsules of Hair-Skin-Nails and MSM Formula daily.

    Use a good brand shampoo (i.e. Aubrey's Organic) that nourishes the hair with essential oils and botanicals, instead of chemicals that strip the natural oils. Henna your hair every 2-3 weeks. Check out our article (HAIR PROBLEMS), for more information.

    Q: Please let me know if the Anti Viral Kit is a one time 20 day regimen? I mean does it only take one kit to be eradicated?

    A: Every individual is different. Depending on your condition, you may need to perform the Anti-Viral kit more than once to continue to help eliminate toxic substances in your body. On the other hand, you may only need to perform the Anti-Viral Kit one time. Every person's body responds differently to the cleanse.

    Q: I wanted to purchase both kits at the same time (Full Body Detox & Anti Viral Kit) and take them together to fight my HPV. Is it safe to take both of them at the same time? Do you think that one kit will be sufficient to fight off the virus?

    A:

    We wouldn't recommend taking these 2 kits together. Do one kit at a time.

    While during the Full Body Cleanse, drink the Anti-Viral Tea.

    While doing the Anti-Viral Kit, drink the Detox Tea.

    Q: Hello, I've been following the cleanse as it says in the book. My baby now refuses to drink from my breasts I’m so upset. He's been crying constantly for two days. I've been ill and vomiting constantly for the same amount of time. This is no coincidence. Today I've only drank water as the thought of anything else makes me feel ill. Every glass of water I've drank I've vomited. I feel so weak and sad The cleansing is just potent on your system. Take a day or two off and resume the cleanse again but only by taking 2-3 capsules at a time, not 5 at a time. Yes, others have experienced what you're experiencing. Follow the advice above and you'll be fine. What are you eating also? I would like to know. Thank you!

    A:

    Please look up VOMITTING in the "DETOX TROUBLESHOOTING"and read the article "HEALING CRISIS" in our articles section. Also, babies don't receive toxins from breast milk but they will receive the benefits and cleansing effects of the herbs as well.

    Q: Thank you for taking out the time to reply. What do you make of the opinions of opponents of consumption of mono-atomic gold, touting it as a secret mind-control serum and other such commentary?

    A:

    It's hogwash! The ancients used this stuff. If it was for mind control and brainwashing purposes, how many people do you know who can afford this stuff? It's too expensive for most people. They don't want people to use this stuff and become spiritually conscious. Don't you think they would promote something cheaper and that everyone can get access to or afford if they wanted to brainwash folks? Mono-atomic Gold is AWESOME! It is not for the masses!

    Q: I have a question about the "Nerves" Supplement. How do I take this 3X per day without getting sleepy? Since the main ingredient is Valerian root. Do I take all 3 capsules before bed time to avoid this, and does it matter whether I take all 3 at the same time? I'm confused since one of the reviews speaks of taking it as a sleep aid.

    A:

    Simply take all 3 capsules before bed time, or one capsules every 3-4 hours. It's only a sleep aid if the capsules are taken before bedtime.

    Q: I am a marathon runner, swimmer, and part time student. For my Entire Life since age 13 1/2, I?ve had either anorexia or bulimia, sometimes a bit of both. I am now 41. Yes, my teeth are hurting.

    A:

    The Full Body Cleanse will greatly help your body to remove toxins.
