Actress and model Carol Alt talks with George about her experiences within the industry, with health and discovering the raw food movement.
Q: Hello, I just started my 9th day on the FBC. With the exception of the 2nd day I have really had a bowel movement. I usually only have a bowel movement once a week. Should I be concerned? Will this interfere with the cleansing process?
Ready for TMI?
Healthy bowel movements are a marker of good health and naturally part of the bodies detox system. Transit time for food should be a day and a half from mouth to anus. Healthy people have 2-3 bowel movements a day. 1 or less indicates constipation. Once a week is a serious medical concern. Food that hangs around becomes toxic and rots. Colon cancer is of major concern if you are not having at least 1 bowel movement per day. I recommend a salt flush to help aid the removal of built up fecal matter.
To do a salt flush you need:
1 liter of water purified
2 teaspoons of sea salt or Himalayan rock salt
Drink on an empty stomach. Best done first thing in the morning when you have an hour or two of free time. It tastes terrible but it works. You will have a flush in about a half hour. You could also add some lemon and tiny amount of maple syrup to the mixture to hide the taste. Do not do the flush and then go out in public. Ha! Give yourself time to get it all out. This can be done every season or when you go a day or two without a bowel movement.
Try to avoid salt the day of and after the flush.
If you have a dog you will notice that after each time they eat within 15 minutes they will have a bowel movement. That is a sign of a healthy digestive tract.
A way to check transit time is to eat beets. Note the time of eating the food and when the visible markers of red tinted fecal matter shows up in your toilet bowl.
I eat a 60-90 percent raw, low fat, high carb vegan diet. It is approximately 4pm where I am and I have already had three bowel movements. I average three a day.

Hope this helps,

Q: The product label talks in terms of children's needs. The directions say "1 to 2 drops" as needed. What about adults? How many drops under the tongue or in water and how many times per day? Is it okay to take it every day even though it has Echinacea?
You can double up the children's dosage for yourself as an adult and yes, you can take it every day despite the Echinacea
Q: First off, let me say, I am soooo happy to have caught the DHERBS advertising while listening to WVON radio in Chicago, IL. This is a very professional, informed and wholistic website. Kudos to the DHERBS team! Secondly, I currently don't take a vitamin/mineral supplemant, but was leaning to the Green Vibrance powder product (are you familiar with this brand), as I've talked to several health food reps, and they spoke of it's popularity within the health industry, the need for vitamins/minerals from a natural green source, and it's potency over pills, being that it's a powder and will digest better, versus pills which come from potentially harmful, scientific sources and, since they're in pill form, aren't absorbed by the body 100%. I was hoping to get a DHERB rep's opinion on GREEN VIBRANCE versus your mineral/vitamin supplemants. I hope you'd be unbiased, as you'd be commenting on a competitor product, as I truly am searching for the best product. I thank you in advance for your time and reply!
I am delighted you enjoy the Dherbs website. Thank you for your words! Green Vibrance is a pretty good product and would supply you with much needed nutrition as mostly all green foods will. My only concern with the product (Green Vibrance) is the mixing of ingredients. I don't believe in mixing fruits with greens due to the mixture of acids and alkalines. A green food product should be TOTALLY "green foods" only and nothing else. Green Vibrance mixes citrus/acids i.e. grape seed extract, acerola berry juice powder with green foods in addition to bee pollen, royal jelly, wheat germ, etc. Also, as a vegan (strict vegetarian), I object to BEE POLLEN and ROYAL JELLY being used. These are from living entities (insects/animals). I also object to SOY as well which is in the product! Other than this, Green Vibrance is a great product that I would endorse as a source of organic nutrition and dietary fiber. Dherbs MULTI-VITAMINS AND MINERALS FORMULA and other products that are in pill form are in VEGAN capsules that dissolve 100%. At Dherbs.Com, we only use the BEST! Our product is 100% botanical! However, as far as absorption, NOTHING absorbs better than liquid and nothing is better as a source of minerals, vitamins, amino acids than FULVIC ACID which we sell as KHEMETIAN GOLD. This stuff is POWERFUL! 1000% pure nutrition! Do your research on Fulvic and Humic Acid and you'll see why I'm saying what I'm saying! So basically, Beloved, either way (Green Vibrance or VITAMIN B COMPLEX and/or KHEMETIAN GOLD) you'll be getting much needed nutrition! It's your choice! We value and respect free will and we don't believe in competition nor do we have to belittle, negate, or condemn another product or company to make a sale. Our primary concern is that people get what they need nutrition-wise and it doesn't have to come from us. Our goal is not to just sell products, but to properly educate people about human health and that's why we offer 175+ free articles in addition to 100+ products! Peace and Love --- and thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com! p.s. - read our testimonials on our site and listen to (read about) the American people on what they are experiencing with Dherbs.Com products!
Q: My son is 10 and only has a bowel movement once every 3 days. When his ped. Gives him meds. She gives him adult strength because of his size. Could he use colon cleanse? He will take pills but won't drink what you have for children.
IF HE CAN SWALLOW SMALL SIZED CAPSULES, YES! HE CAN TAKE THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE (ALONG WITH THE LIQUID CHILDRENâ€™S COLON EXTRACT). AND EVEN BOWEL MOVER TEA. ALL OF THESE WILL HELP HIM.
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.
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 purchased the Female Health Tea with RR. I would like to know how often should I drink the tea to feel the full effect of its content.
That's easy! Drink it everyday and as much as you like! You'll feel the effect at the right time.
Q: I live in New Jersey and I'm interested in where can I purchase these crystals you spoke about on one of your audio tapings and I'm also interested in water alkaliner/oxygenizer. The one you spoke about drinking and giving you the energy to move many boxes.
Call information (411) and ask for SOOTHE YOUR SOUL in Redondo Beach, California (located on Pacific Coast Highway). This store sells both crystals and the water alkalizer machine.
Q: My daughter is six years old. Since she was an infant, she had problems with going to the bathroom. I noticed she only has a bowel movement approximately 2 times a week if that. I told her doctor and he recommended the product Maalox daily. I hear you are supposed to have a bowel movement at least once a day. Even I myself do not go as often. Please help
FOR THE CHILD, I RECOMMEND CHILDRENâ€™S COLON EXTRACT. ALSO GIVE THE CHILD PRUNE JUICE BEFORE BEDTIME 3-4 TIMES A WEEK. FOR YOURSELF, I RECOMMEND YOU PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. ALSO DRINK BOWEL MOVER TEA AND PRUNE JUICE AS WELL. THE ABOVE SHOULD GET YOU GUYS REGULATED AND WELL. PLEASE KNOW THAT IT IS YOUR DIET THAT CAUSES YOU AND YOUR CHILD TO BE CONSTIPATED.
Q: Why do people that have herpes, have less outbreaks as time goes on? I have read your articles on this disease, and I also have listened to your audio articles.
Simply because slowly but surely as people accept the fact that they have been diagnosed with the insidious disease, they accept it and it quells anxiety. It is initial anxiety that causes outbreaks in the first place.
Q: Hey Dherbs.com, Thank GOD for working through YOU, I am listening now to the Metaphysics of Money file, and WOW!! Could I have the book list you mentioned during the interview?

Q: First of all, I will like to say thanks for such wonderful product. I truly believe that I am blessed to come across this site. My concern is this: I bought the FULL BODY DETOX this is my third and final week on it, yet, I have not had regular bowel movement daily. At times, I may have a movement once a day and after few days have another. One of my excitements was, to lose some weight as well as cleanse myself. What do I need to do? My next step is to buy the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I am waiting for your advice as to what step to take next before buying it. Thanks for your kindness and willingness to listen.
Lack of bowel movements means your colon is compacted. It may take some time but the herbs will regulate it. Drink more water, drink BOWEL MOVER TEA and also drink prune juice (especially at night before bed). I suggest you perform the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE next followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I am glad you enjoy Dherbs.Com!
Q: Hi, I am currently on the Anti-Viral Cleanse and I can feel that it is working. Mainly I am noticing I'm having dreams of past experiences which have emotional trauma which I have associated with having herpes. These are really intense and I know they are the herbs working as these are memories I have tried to repress for years. Is there anything you recommend to help shift this stored energy? I think I need help to move these emotions or the healing won't be complete. Also - I forgot to take the pills for an entire day and a half on the cleanse as I was delayed at a work conference. Will this break the entire cleanse and I need to start from the beginning again? I look forward to hearing from you, Emily Steckelbruck +61 413 391 064
Sometimes your emotions does affect the healing process. You can try using some of the Elixirs to help clear out your emotions of the past like the Aura Cleansing Elixir or the Anti-Negative Thoughts Elixir. You can also try the Aromatherapy Inhalers. If it's still the same day you that you forget to take one of the formula's you can still take it at a later time.
If you forget and it's the day after just continue on without it or add an extra day to the cleanse. Taking them out of order doesn't have an effect on your cleanse as long as you're still taking the supplements daily. The schedule can be adjusted according to you personal time, just be sure that the hours in between are the same as listed in the manual. It is significant to follow the regiment exactly.

Q: My sister has completed the FULL BODY DETOX, which improved her health greatly, but she is undergoing major stress, which is causing her an enormous amount of anxiety. She is having trouble breathing while lying down. She also experiences headaches that won't go away easily. She is currently taking NERVES FORMULA and NERVES TEA, FEMALE HORMONAL FORMULA and CIRCUL-AID FORMULA. Is there anything else that you could recommend for her? I would appreciate your help.
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING SHE NEEDS TO DO IS TO REMOVE HERSELF FROM THE SOURCE OF THE STRESS. YOU SEE, BREATHING DEALS WITH THE BREATH OF LIFE AND BREATHING PROBLEMS PERTAIN TO LIFE PROBLEMS, NOT GOING WITH THE FLOW (OF LIFE), UNABLE TO RECEIVE THE "BREATH OF LIFE. SHE SHOULD LEARN ABOUT DEEP BREATHING (EXERCISES).
Q: You are now my go to man. You have given so much wisdom. Do you ever give talks in Houston? I'd like to ask what is the best thing to wash the vagina area?
Thank you for your appreciation of Dherbs.Com! Haven't been to Houston yet we are always open to an invitation. The best thing to wash the vaginal area with is water followed by herbal tea (i.e. Goldenseal Root, Red Raspberry leaf, White Oak Bark, etc.).
Q: My 7 year old son suffers from involuntary muscle movement. A form of tics! What can I do to help ease this problem? It goes and comes in different forms.
Work on his nervous system, there may be damage to it. Massage may help, even chiropractic.
Q: I am a 33 year old who has been experiencing nocturnal emissions since I was a teenager. I do not masturbate, but every now and then I experience these emissions. During my light research, it was stated by the health and medical industry that nocturnal emissions are normal occurrence within males. I know there's so much more to know about this. Can you can provide some insight as to what it is? Is it really natural? Is it possible for a person to have emissions, who is not sexually active? Can you please help me?
Please read our new article "Nocturnal Emissions" on the Home Page in the Articles section, Beloved!
Q: I AM EXPECTING MY DETOX PACKAGE TO COME IN POSSIBLY ON TUESDAY. I WANT TO START REPLENSHING MY DRY FRUITS. 1. ALMONDS 2. PECANS. 3. RAW CASHEWS. I HARDLY EAT PEANUTS AND I KNOW THEY ARE NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL. DO YOU RECOMMEND WALNUTS? MY FAVORITE ARE ABOVE. PLUS SHOULD I GET DISTILLED WATER? ALSO BEFORE DISCOVERING DHERBS, I PUT In A WHOLE WATER FILTRATON SYSTEM IN MY HOUSE AND I BELIEVE IT IS CONSIDERED PURIFIED WATER. IS THIS GOOD OR SHOULD I BUY BOTTLED DISTILLED WATER. I AM VERY ANXIOUS TO START DETOXING BECAUSE THIS IS THE FIRST TIME.
Walnuts are good to eat during the Full Body Cleanse. Distilled water is the best water during the Full Body Cleanse, but your filtered water would also be okay to drink during the cleanse.
Q: While doing a candida cleanse, it was told to me that I should be following a raw food diet full of fruits and vegetables. Fruits have high sugar content and can feed a candida overgrowth, as it is a well known fact that candida albicans thrive on sugar. How can I justify eating fruits high in sugar? Thank you for your comments. Ozzy
A: Yes, when you have a candida issue it's best to avoid refined sugar. Sugar from a natural source like fruits should be consumed moderately. In your case it would be best to consume fruits mainly in the mornings for breakfast when your body maximizes on food the most, avoiding the ones that are very high in sugar.
