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: 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???
Thanks for the question,
· Light resistance training
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 6'0 starting day 1 at 246, on day 4, I hit 236. But for 3 days I am at the same weight. Do I need to workout to lose more weight, if so what are some good workouts for my body type. Most of my weight is in the midsection.
Hi, thanks for the question.
Your body does not like rapid changes in weight and will fight you along the way. These are called plateaus. It's too early to panic and by the time you get this email I am pretty sure your weight will have shifted again. You cannot spot lose weight. Your body picks and chooses where it gains weight and where it loses weight. sometimes they aren't the same places.
Working out always helps the process. Here is a blog I wrote, Three Successful Fitness Habits for Sustained Weight, on three successful habits for sustained weight loss.
Fitness for weight loss is interval cardio training and circuit weight training.
Example of both would be:
Interval training on bike.
3 minute warmup
30 seconds of high speed
1 minute of recovery
repeat for 15 minutes till 30 minutes.
Circuit training (five rounds-1 minute rest in between rounds)
Mountain climbers x 20
Pushups x 20
Squats x 20
Bent over rows x 15
Crunches x 25
Without knowing your body type, sports history, and health history I cannot recommend any specific exercise. I run a highly successful internet fitness/health coaching company www.theveganeffect.com. If you would like a free consultation you can fill out the health history form on the main page and I will have one of my fitness coaches contact you.

Q: I finished my FBD yesterday. Is it normal for people who have done detox hard to eat food I used to eat? I mean meat, fish, etc...I don't have that much appetite somehow. Is this normal? I am thinking about doing Female Cleanse in a week or so...My question is how many time do I need to cleanse my body? I understand it is depend on person but I need to find out.
We would recommend to incorporate as many of the raw foods you ate during your cleanse into your diet post-cleanse. Try to find a balance with healthy, nutrient-dense foods.
A person can detox 2-4 times per year to cleanse their bodies of any impurities acquired due to lifestyle and environmental factors.
Q: I just purchased the FULL BODY DETOX and I have a question. I work a full time job (office work) and a part time job (cleaning). I'm worried if I will be able to work while doing the detox, I also workout (weight lifting) and with eating raw foods and no cooked food, I'm wondering if I will make it the 3 weeks doing this. I want to detox my body but I'm wondering if I can eat anything else (fish, chicken, baked of course). Can you give me some suggestions on what I can do or do you think I can do my normal things and still be on the detox?
The human mind can make or break you based upon its conditioning! Just take the cleanse one day at a time and FIND OUT for yourself what the reactions will be. You're all in the future worrying! One day at a time! One day at a time! Take things one day at a time. Read the article â€WHAT IS RAW FOODSâ€ because you're asking about cooked foods and prohibited foods (animal flesh) which the kit clearly states should be avoided for 3-weeks. Always THINK positive in life about everything. Your thoughts create your reality!
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.
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 have a hard time reaching an orgasm and would like some help. Itâ€™s even differcult to reach while masturbating. I had a liver transplant nine years ago and doing fine. Doctors call me a miracle, so what's the problem?
Your problem is totally psychosomatic! Have you read our free health articles on this subject matter? You may also want to consider a health consultation. Problems sound like it is on the psycho-emotional level.
Q: I am having a hard time getting pregnant. I am 38, did FSH blood- GREAT, HSG- tubes open, uterus clear, Semen Analysis- great.... but no baby. I have a 4 1/2 year old child and I had no problems. What can you suggest? Not good with fasting really- but can you give me some ideas on what to take?
It may be your mate, Beloved. Both of you should work on yourselves. Not necessarily "fasting", but cleansing (TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, TOTAL MALE CLEANSE) and then you should perform the FERTILITY CLEANSE.
Q: Hello, I'm very interested in your Full Body Cleanse programs, but I'm confused, as to what program would be best for me. I have a lot of trouble with taking herbs in pill or capsule form. It's either extremely hard for me to get them down, or they just pop right back up. I was interested in the Full body cleanse in the capsule form, after reading the description on your site, but I don't know if I should buy it in Children's Detox & just take more than the recommended dose (I'm 27 yrs. old), or should I buy the Full Body Cleanse Tea, is the tea the same as the capsules, is it as effective as the capsules? When doing the cleanse can you eat steamed veggies? Will I see gallstones in my poop? How many capsules, how often? Can I open the capsules, & put them in tea? Do you have any advice on vitamins, whole food supplements?
We offer a liquid alternative Full Body Liquid Cleanse for those that have trouble swallowing capsules. You may also order the regular Full Body Cleanse and open adn empty the content of the capsules into water or fresh fruit juice.
During the cleanse, we recommend an all RAW FOODS diet. Vegetables should be eaten raw, and not steamed, as to retain their nutritional content.
In the Full Body Cleanse (with capsules), there are 6 formulas to take 2-3 hours apart, 5 capsules at a time.
Q: I work out at the gym at 6am till 7:30am hard six days a week. Since I'm eating raw foods while detoxing, what will help me keep up that same intensity in the gym. Will protein bars or protein powder help? Maybe you can recommend something? Thank you!
Q: Sir, I'm trying to be brave about my situation but because my breast is rock hard and from my nipple to my underarm looks like a tree stump it's very hard to concentrate on anything else. I just don't want to get my breast cut off and I'm just praying that your herbs will help. I started on some herbs when all this started and did not see any changes except for maybe my breast getting worst. I'm not sure if I am asking a question or just merely expressing my feelings and thoughts.
Beloved, where thought goes energy flows. You need to work on controlling your concentration. If not, what you fear will appear. This is law! Herbs will take time to heal just as it took time for the problem to develop and eventually manifest. Patience is required for Nature to do her thing. The herbs will help but true healing is within the mind.
Q: My sister started FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) 2 weeks ago and she has crohn's disease and has had her sigmoid colon removed in 10/07. Initially she was experiencing nausea and vomiting when taking FBD capsules so she decrease the number of capsules now this is her third week on FBD and she is up to 5 capsules every 2-3 hours and she has started to experience the vomiting again also her stools are hard and stuck to her skin. Do you have any natural remedies that would be effective?
She needs to decrease the capsules amount to 2-3 due to having part of her colon removed. She needs to cut back. Have her drink 1 cup of BOWEL MOVER TEA when she finishes the cleanse.
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?
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: Hello, I'm on day 3 of the FBC and I'm having a really hard time with sweets. It's even more trying because I work in a bakery which I cannot avoid because it is a family owned business and I, myself do a lot of the baking. What do you recommend to help seize my sweet craving besides fruit? Because it seems that I can eat fruit for substitution but after a while I still want to eat cake lol. Also, what brand alkaline water do you recommend? Is it best to drink the bottled water or make it? Thanking you in advance. D.Bolden
A: After a few days, your cravings will subside. If you feel like you need additional help with sugar cravings you can also try the Sugar Control. There are raw food desserts available in health stores like Whole Foods, raw food restaurants or raw desserts you can make. It would be best to purchase the alkaline water. Essentia, Nestle, Voss and Neo Water are some of the popular brands of alkaline water. Sugar Control - http://www.dherbs.com/store/sugar-Formula-p-63.html
Q: Why do people enjoy drinking beer, wine, and hard liquor? If it's because of the feeling they derive from it, is there a natural alternative for internal (extract, etc.) or external(lighting, scent, etc.) use that can give people the same feeling?
People enjoy spirits (alcohol) for many reasons. Most people are just simply brainwashed; that's all!
Q: I have a large boil on my back, it is hard and it hurts. I was using something called Boil Ease, and it's done nothing. Is there a Tea or something that you can recommend?
CHECK OUT THE INFORMATION WE PROVIDE FOR BOILS TREATMENT IN OUR ARTICLE ENTITLED â€BOILSâ€. IT'S LOCATED IN THE ARTICLES SECTION.
Q: I'm having a little hard time building a relationship with my lady's 6 year-old daughter. She's sweet, the only child (for now), and has her father in her life. I don't want to be her dad, but I do want her to respect me. I intend to marry this lady, and I will be the father figure in our house.
Just focus on things you appreciate about the child. Stop judging her relationship with her mother. Find a perspective about her that feels good. Respect her, and give her space to warm up to you at her own pace. It will happen
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 have been experiencing some discomfort in my mid to lower stomach region. I feel an itching burning sort of sensation, sort of hard to explain, just below my navel. I completed the FULL BODY DETOX about 2 weeks ago, which was great! Can you please advise on what herbal formula I can take to help??
