    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: First of all hello and thank you for the FULL BODY DETOX. I completed the full detox August 5, 08 and found it extremely beneficial, again, thank you. Please let me know your opinion regarding the "Abgone" Extra Strength pill that reportedly promotes pot belly loss (the one issue I continue to confront). I exercise, I do yoga and I jog four times weekly 3 miles. Never the less I still have a "pot belly". I contacted "Biotech Research" and was advised that this is an all natural product. The ingredients are said to be Vitamin C, Zinc, Chromium Polynitic, Phofphatidylserine, Clabcaa, Dandelion Powder, 99% Caffeine, Green Tea Extract, The capsule is made of soybean, beeswax, gelatin, glycerin and red dye #40. Please respond at your earliest convenience.

    A:

    That product ABGONE is crap due to the ingredients. No product is your solution, but the mind (thoughts, attitude), diet, lifestyle, etc. Stop worrying about the pot belly and focus on your desired state. Only see your results in your mind and you will attract the results on the material plane. Please read through some of our articles, beloved!

    Q: During a dental check-up today, my 6 year old son was given a shot to have a minor extraction and then prescribed Gel-Kam (0.4% stable stannous fluoride preventive treatment gel) to be placed on a few of his teeth. They warned me not to let him swallow it and not allow him to eat or drink anything for at least 1/2 hour after using it. He is scheduled to return next week Thursday. Do you have any suggestions/alternatives for fluoride treatment? I have no intention of putting the Gel-Kam in his mouth. Further, can you suggest a website where I can find recipes for wholesome lunches for him? We presently reside in Turks & Caicos Islands located in the Caribbean and getting organic is little to nothing over here.

    A:

    Give your son CARBON (Activated Charcoal). Mix half a teaspoon in water and stir well. This product will remove the poisonous fluoride.

    Q: My question is what could be causing my puffy eyes? I've had them for probably 6 or 8 months now (maybe more). They sometimes will have a little darkness added to them. Sometimes I wake up and whatever side I've been laying on, that eye will be even more swollen than the other side, but they are usually the puffiest when I first wake up. Sometimes it looks like I've been bopped in the eye in my sleep. I've cut out a lot of the processed foods and stay away from sugars for the most part. I drink only water and juice once a day (5 carrots, 1 green apple, 1" ginger root, handful of parsley and 1/2 beet with greens. I get plenty of rest (although I've always had a hard time feeling rested) but not sure if the eyes have anything to do with rest. It seems more like it has to do with something else internally. What advice can you give and what supplements would you recommend. I'm currently taking your Multi-Vitamins and Minerals formula along with your VITAMIN B COMPLEX (which I love them both). Have been on them for about 1 1/2 weeks now I guess. I also take your CANDIDA BUSTER and the COLON FORMULA (I was having a problem with constipation for the past couple months, did some of your recommended enemas but for some reason my body still seems to get stopped up easily lately).

    A:

    OUR â€EYE PROBLEMS†ARTICLE GOES OFF INTO MORE DETAIL ON THIS INQUIRY, BUT FOR THE SAKE OF TIME, WORK ON YOUR KIDNEYS AND CIRCULATION, BELOVED. IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR CIRCULATION IS BEING CUT OFF, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU LIE DOWN OR SLEEP. DRINK PLENTY OF PARSLEY AND CUCUMBER JUICE. GOOD DHERBS.COM COMPOUNDS INCLUDE EYES FORMULA, KIDNEYS AND BLADDER, AND CIRCUL-AID FORMULA.

    Q: Yeah it does seem like it would be a lot of pills to take to do a Full Body Cleanse one time...plus the longer term would probably be more effective I would think. I think I have just one more question here and that would be about the Anti-viral kit and the Parasite & Worm Cleanse. As I read they go hand in hand the Anti-viral Kit cleans up blood and Parasite & Worm Cleanse cleans up organs and tissues if I read it right and remember it correctly. My question is which would be first?? My guess would be clean up the blood first since that is constantly pumping around nasties if it?s already full of poisons. The body can only move so much out at one time and if the blood is full of poisons it would be hard for your body to get the poisons out of the organs and transport it out of the body. I?m no doctor but it seems to me the blood is what transports stuff around the body....so am i right to think that the viral blood should be the first to clean up? Then parasites in the organs and tissues...and then move onto cleaning up the acidic deposits thru our the body. ...maybe I should be asking what you would do first? Do you ship ups or fedex?

    A:

    Yes, aim for the blood first. But know this, all of our kits are going to cleanse the blood and work on the organs. Some are just more geared toward certain organs and systems, that's all.

    Personally, we would recommend to aim for the parasites and worms, to facilitate future healing with another kit. Regardless of the kit, healing is going to take place.

    Call Dherbs directly to inquire about shipping with Fed-Ex or UPS. Normal Dherbs shipping is via U.S. Postal Service.

    Q: Peace, I am very interested in using your products. However, I want to be sure that I am on the right track. I have a serious problem eliminating waste from my body. My bowels do not move naturally. I have to take something to get any movement. Recently, I visited with a Chinese Herbalist who informed me that I "had" a weak spleen. I began taking Four Gentlemen Teapils along with Yin Chi female performance for energy and smooth move cap. My energy improved tremendously but the bowel movements were minimal. On my next visit he took me off of the Four Gentlemen and put me on Gui Pi Wan Teapils and a detox. I'm not real sure about the contents of the detox caps but my bowels did move a bit more but still not on their own when I finished the detox. Now I am at the point where I feel good still with some bloating in my upper abdomen, very uncomfortable. I would like to work with someone who can help me to understand how to heal my body. Thus, my husband mentioned your name a couple of months ago. He heard about you on a radio show. And, I have a 10-year old daughter who's body is preparing for menstruation. She complains about mild stomach aches more like cramps and some headaches during certain times of the month. I want to know what I can do to assist her body as it transitions into young woman hood. I am thinking of your full body cleanse first. I would love to maybe speak with you and put myself on the best path possible. Thank you.

    A:

    Give your daughter MOON CYCLE FORMULA and FEMALE HORMONAL FORMULA (1-2 capsules daily). And/or drink 1 cup of FEMALE HEALTH TEA daily.

    Q: I have a question regarding Bad Breath. I have tried everything, baking soda, rinsing with peroxide, Dr. Katz products, changing toothpaste, breath mints, everything you could think of. I don't think it has anything to do with my hygiene I think I have a health problem that my doctors have not been able to find. I really want to know how to get rid of it. My self esteem is affected by it and I am a business owner and the last thing I want to do is have my clients think that I don't brush my teeth. I brush them several times a day and I even carry my toothbrush with me sometimes.

    A:

    Bad breath starts in the colon! Read the article "SKUNK BREATH (Halitosis)" on our site in the articles section. It'll give you great insight into this situation. Product-wise, I recommend you perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE.

    Q: My aunt keeps returning to the emergency room because she can't breath. Each time I try to get her started on herbs (she's a diabetic, now on dialysis because a medication ruined her kidney - she wouldn't listen to me about herbs over the years) she somehow ends up in the hospital because she can't breath. I don't believe that it's the herbs (the four you recommend for diabetics). What can I do to help her clear up this problem so she won't end up at the hospital again? I'm afraid that she is going to blame it on the herbs, and she won't want to try anything anymore after today.

    A:

    Flush her out with plenty of water. Have her drink herbal tea of Mullein Leaf, Boneset, and/or Fenugreek. You know, it sounds like the medication has really attacked her lungs. Also sounds like her eliminative channels are very, very weak! She should eat only raw fruits and vegetables and consume herbal tea to remove the obstruction that is preventing her from breathing. You know, Beloved, if she is afraid of herbs and not drugs she has the wrong mindset. Fear is negative and shuts down healing. Sometimes, there's only so much you can do to help a person. Some people have made up minds that they can't or won't heal and so there's really nothing you can do to help them.

    Q: For the pass few days I have notice that when I bend my right arm at the elbow there feels like a slight feeling of displacement, if that's what I could call it (it's not bending smoothly like the left arm) there is no pain, I was just wondering what it could be. I don't recall hitting my elbow against anything. I'm 51 a vegan, and I take at least 1000mg of calcium a day. Any recommendations on what this might be would be appreciated.

    A:

    Sounds like your body is talking to you. Joint problems usually convey the message that you are too rigid in some area of your life and need to bend and become pliant or loose or yielding (Taoism). Think about this and make the connection for only you know about your life and how you are. Remember: pain is a sensor! It conveys a message!

    Q: I am about one week into the 3-week FULL BODY DETOX, and I have developed an extremely sore throat, similar to the symptoms of strep throat. The pain is fairly constant during the day and is almost unbearable in the morning when I wake up. Should I get on antibiotics to clear it up or continue the detox?

    A:

    Sore throat only means your lymphatic system is inflamed there at your throat. Gargle with warm water and sea salt and drink licorice root tea or lobelia tea. Read the article â€HEALING CRISISâ€

    Q: I am about to start the full body detox and I was wondering if yogurt was something good to eat during the full body detox. I also work a rotating shift which means my shift changes approximately every seven days. Should I continue taking the pills on the same schedule or should I take them on my "wake" hours when I work the midnight shift?

    A:

    Yogurt is dairy, Beloved! The diet regimen is clear on dairy products. In re schedule, you have the liberty to take the capsules as you please. So improvise if need be. You have the freedom to do so. Just take your capsules regardless of your shift.

    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 question is I use to have a very caramel complexion or fair complexion when I was in West Africa. Ghana. But when I move USA out here over the course of the years my complexion has change drastically from fair to totally dark. Do you know why this happen? And what can I do to retain my color back. My second question is recently I notice some sort of bumps around the low part of my eye on both side. It’s about couple of them. I don't know why. It keep disappearing and coming back again. Any way I can make my eyes look whiter and brighter. My eye color looks like orange or yellowish and I don't smoke but drink socially. Help me out.

    A:

    Change of climate, Beloved. You went from a healthy environment to an unhealthy one. You are having eye problems because there is something you need to see that you have been unable or unwilling to see so far. It could be on the emotional level, logical level, etc. but it pertains to some area of your life. The whites of your eyes are yellowish because your liver is toxic. Clean your liver - consider performing the FULL BODY DETOX.
