Q: Could you please help with the types of herbs could be used to regenerate and restore kidneys, that most physicians are reluctant to talk about.
Oh sure! By all means! Great nephritic (kidney) herbs that help the kidneys cleanse, repair, tone, strengthen and rejuvenate include Uva Ursi, Juniper Berries, Cornsilk, Agrimony, and Nettles (to name a few). Check out Dherbs.com's Kidney-Bladder-Adrenal as it includes several of the best nephritic herbs that will help with all adverse kidney conditions.

Q: I just ordered two different types of herbs that require me to take each three times a day. One that will help high blood pressure and one to help prostate. I would like to know if that is safe.
It is very safe!
Q: While going through menopause for the last two years I have experienced different types of symptoms. At times it feels like a pinching or squeezing in my head. The doctor said it was muscle spasms. I'd like to know if there is any herb that may help curb the symptoms. Thank you
Q: I would like to know if soy tofu is good and what types of breads are okay to eat? Also is soymilk good to drink and any dressings you could advise that can be put on salads? hotep!
A: Almond and Rice milk are better than soy milk.
Search "salad dressings" on our website and you will find many raw recipes that can help you.
Q: I am allergic to all types of nuts and noticed that some of the supplements in the detox program include Kola Nut and black walnut husk. Will this affect me in the same way as eating a regular nut? If so, what alternatives do you suggest for me to do a detox?
No need to worry! Not your typical nuts. These are powdered into herbal powders. You won't have problems with these herbs derived from nuts.
Q: What types of grains are allowed with the raw foods diet during the FULL BODY DETOX? Are whole grain breads and cereal bars ok? Please clarify. Also, should I stop taking my birth control pill while on the detox? I hear it will cancel out anyway?
IN REFERENCE TO GRAINS, ONLY SPROUTED GRAINS. NO CEREAL AND CREAL BARS! OF COURSE STOP TAKING YOUR BIRTH CONTROL PILL BECAUSE THE FULL BODY DETOX TARGETS ALL TOXINS AND POISONS AND MAN-MADE/PHARMACEUTICAL BIRTH CONTROL PILLS ARE TOXIC AND POISONOUS. IT WILL MOST CERTAINLY CANCEL OUT.
There are essentially two types of raw food diets. There is a high fat low carb gourmet version and there is a high carb low fat version. The gourmet raw vegan diet is promoted by chefs and super food promoting gurus. The low fat high carb version is promoted by athletes and health/medical professionals whos protocols are healing all types of disease.
Most people who go on the high fat/superfood route end up spending a ton of money and end up burning out pretty quickly. All the sucessful long term raw fooders I know follow the high carb version. I run a health coaching program call "The Vegan Effect" which uses a 60-90 ppercent raw high carb diet. www.theveganeffect.com
A typical day would look like.
Green smoothie for beakfast (fruits and greens)
fruit for snack
Large salad with a cup or two of quinoa and salsa for lunch
Fruit for snack
Raw pasta or raw wraps with hummus for dinner
Sorbet for snack
A great book to consider as a guide is "The paradigm diet" by Adam Dave MD
Hope this helps.

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?
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.
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: Help! My grandmother has a moderate form of Dementia. She is on a few different types of medication, including heart medication and also one for her Dementia. I was wondering what natural cures are available for someone with her deteriorating condition? I would really like to help her to be free of these medications. She lives in chronic pain nearly every day. If there is anything, I would really appreciate an explanation in regards to how you know the herbs you sell or offer really work.
We recommend your grandmother take Brain Booster (capsules), Brain Booster (tea), Central Nervous System Formula, Circulation Aid, and 6th Chakra Extract. Because of all her drugs (so-called medicine) she took, she should also take Activated Charcoal too. These herbs will greatly help her and her condition. The Brain Booster Formula & Tea can enhance her mental and cognitive ability, while the Central Nervous System Formula and Circulation Aid can help her maintain healthy blood flow to her whole body, including her brain.
Q: I wrote to you earlier but forgot to mention that I also had a ultrasound done of my breast and they found fluid and some form of cyst and they wanted to do a biopsy but the last time I had one it cause some other types of changes in my breast so I haven't had it done yet. Do you think that I should have it done?
Q: I am doing the FULL BODY DETOX and want to know if olives are o.k. to eat. If so, what types of olives should I buy. I am only familar with the ones in the can or jar. I figure the can ones are a no, no. I found some in a jar that are naturally cured. The only extra ingredients are sea salt and citric acid. Is this o.k.?
Olives are OKAY to eat as long as you don't eat too much of them. The best are Kalamata Olives from Whole Foods.
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!
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: I am currently living in Atlanta GA, moved here from New York. I've never suffered from pollen, or being allergic to raw fruits peach, apples or plums. I can't eat raw carrots and other types of nuts until I moved to GA, and started to suffer from Allergies. Now my question is, is there something from your site or some type of herbal combination that I can take to 1. Stop my allergic reaction during March/April pollen season and two help me to eat the natural fresh fruits I used to enjoy before without having to throw it all up, or being unable to digest it.
I would recommend you perform FULL BODY DETOX, especially every Spring. Take 3 capsules of ALLERGY FORMULA daily. Your problem lies much deeper. We have an article on the subject coming soon! Stay tuned to Dherbs!
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.
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 email@example.com. Namaste, Megan
