    Q: My grandmother has been diagnosed with alzheimer's and dementia... She is taking medications for her memory Namenda, which is doing no justice. and Duloxetine (Cymbalta).... Are there any alternatives to these medicines. We are no longer going to be giving her the Namenda. Any suggestions on which pills I should purchase for her?

    A: It would be in your grandmother's best interest to do the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body cleanse is a detox program that eliminates toxins and waste from the body that often contributes to things like memory issues and certain health ailments. In doing the cleanse, you're detoxing all of the major organs giving the body and the immune system the reset it needs to function how it should. The cleanse helps pull the aluminum and other heavy metal toxins that often plays a major role in Alzheimer's and Dementia. After cleansing we suggest taking the Brain Booster, Nerves Formula and the Magical Alchemical Elixir to specifically help bring recovery from the conditions of Alzheimer's and Dementia. The Oxy Drops could also help promote more oxygen to the brain.

    Q: I would like to date a Scorpio woman regardless of the race. How can you help me in this finding. I don't know who is single or not. She must be around the age of 35 to 45.

    A:

    The fastest and easiest way to narrow down this type of criteria is to use a dating website. You can search by astrological sign and age. Good luck!
    If you want to utilize Universal Laws then focus on the things you like about Scorpio women.

    Kind Regards,

    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.

    A:

    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: My fiance has experienced water retention and discoloration in his right foot and leg for around 2 years. Doctors had him on water pills, coreg for vascular issues and glyberide for high blood sugars. He ordered the Pancreas kit and around a week into the program experienced more swelling in the foot and leg. He stopped the program to resume taking the water pill to see if this would help. He has gained around 12 lbs which is water held in this leg. I know the natural way of good nutrition and herbs is a good course to follow but can you offer some suggestions to help these issues. 1. water retention 2. His stomach rumbles and gurgles 24 hours a day to the point where I thought our neighbors were dragging furniture across the floor. This has caused him considerable embarrassment at work. We are eating a vegan diet about 50% raw-50%-cooked. Oddly enough when he eats a standard American diet the rumbling stops. 3. High blood pressure. Thank you so much for answering my previous letter to you. I believe in what you are doing, and know that the body will heal at it's own pace with proper care. I have resolved a urinary problem just a week into your Detox program and think it's great.

    A:

    Your husband is NOT getting proper circulation to his extremities. He should have not stopped the Pancreas kit because it is common for things to get worse before better. He should have judged himself after the kit was finished in 3-weeks. He experienced the HEALING CRISIS and stopped! He should complete the kit and regimen (perhaps even starting over).

    His stomach is making noises because he's having digestive problems. He needs to eat as much raw foods as possible and rink plenty of vegetable juice. SAD foods stops his stomach from gurgling because that's what's in his stomach; and when he does not give his stomach what it wants (a sign of fasting and cleansing), he hear the noise from his stomach. Again, the healing crisis. Things will get worse before they get better. However, you don't stop!

    High blood pressure is due to his toxic state and poor circulation!

    Have him perform the Full Body Detox and right after the Full Body Detox, the Pancreas kit and regimen.

    There's healing from him!

    Please peruse some of our free articles so as to truly learn what's going on with his/your bodies pertaining to healing.

    Q: I am a 29 year old African American female. I would like to tell you my story and get your advice. Before Sept. 28, 2008 I was a healthy fun loving female but after sept. 28th my health has not been the same. I wake up in the morning weak with nausea and headaches. I went to Kaiser and they said I had a virus and I had to let it take its course. I work with kids and it was hard for me to go back to work because 1. I kept getting sick. 2. My boss was mad that I was sick and not able to work. So I went back to Kaiser and then they said I was sick and had a virus with a mix of anxiety(due to my boss going crazy on me). They said I need to rest and stop being anxious, so I can heal.(well the anxiety is gone) Next I started to get sharp pains in my stomach area(which I have had before on and off for the past couple of years but it would only happen like once or twice a year) but I was scared because the pains we're very sharp and happening like two weeks apart. So Kaiser told me to go see a Upper GI Dr. I went to see one and had an endoscopy done and they found a yeast infection in my throat and that also my esophagus was irritated to but my stomach looked fine. So they put me on Prontiox (for the irritated esophagus and Difucan (for the yeast infection). Well as soon as I finished the medication for the yeast infection in my esophagus, I lost my voice and could not talk for 4-5 days and I still have the stomach pains. So the Upper GI dr. told me the sore throat and losing my voice was a side effect to GERD and that is what I may have. So he asked to up the dose of the Prontiox (so now I am taking 80 mg instead of 40 mg a day). But guess what still having stomach pains and my voice still goes in and out and it feels like something is stuck in my throat and now when I eat, I feel food get stuck in my chest like right in the middle of my breast. So what is going on with me...they have done blood work on me from blood count to checking me for STD's (even HIV) and everything came back normal/negative. And they keep saying all my blood work is healthy...So what is going on and what can I take, because I am a natural person and my system is sensitive to a lot of stuff and I don’t like being on these medications. And now the DRs may think I have IBS..Oh boy Help!! And oh yeah I have had very bad cramps when I have my period and take Motrin and I would like to know is there anything I can take that is sensitive to my stomach... HELP

    A:

    Beloved, first perform the FULL BODY DETOX. Next, perform TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, and lastly, perform the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. These kits will repair your system!

    Q: I am sensitive to herbal supplements like spirulina, green tea and gingseng; they cause my heart to race. I would love to do the FULL BODY DETOX but see some of these herbs are used in the products associated with the detox. What would you suggest I do in this case?

    A:

    You may have problems with herbs individually but our herbs are BALANCED due to the combination and so you wouldn't have a problem with the FULL BODY DETOX (because no one individual herbs stands out in a formula).

    Q: I'm writing regarding 2 issues that I would like advice on. First, I am a 31 year old professional athlete (african american), and I was diagnosed with over active bladder in 2006. This condition makes me use the rest room about 20 to 30 times per day, it is very uncomfortable. The urologist went inside the penis with a camera, but he did not find anything, and from there he said I had "overactive bladder". I would like to know if you recommend something that specifically could work on helping repair the bladder, and prostate area. I have already taken your Full Body Detox. I am just looking for something that specifically repairs the bladder/kidney function. On that note, I also want to know is there something I can take for penile dysfunction? I was with my wife the other night, and everything went fine. Until, I noticed that I was experiencing some issues as far as the penis staying erect, about half way through the act. I do not smoke, drink, or abuse any drugs. I'm wondering where it may have come from? Could the frequent urination have anything to do with it? Also, it is noteworthy to mention that I was masturbating alot even 3 times a day, for a period of years. I am wondering could that be a problem? Can I repair these issues?

    A:

    Greetings! I recommend the Total Male Cleanse which will address every concern you wrote about. While performing this cleanse, order and drink "Kidney's Tea", and "Jackrabbit Tea" (1 cup of each daily while cleansing). Your genital glands may have become weakened due to the excess masturbation. You lost a lot of zinc (with every ejaculation zinc and other nutrients are lost), so after the TMC make sure you purchase, and take our Zinc Phosphate, MSM Sulfur, Kidneys-Bladder Formula and Male Hormonal Formula, at least for 3 months until you rebuild the uro-genital system. The kidneys are connected to the sex glands.

    Learn mental science for sexual enhancement. The same principles apply. Check out our 'Mental Science' e-book and work those techniques in the sex act. Trust me - they work!
    You can heal, Beloved!

    Q: First let me say Thank you, thank you, thank you. You really helped me to see how/why arthritis manifested in my life. From your answer, I developed my personal matra "Move like the waves in the ocean" and it has really helped to improve my pain drug free. About 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and was given nuclear radiation which "nuked" my thyroid. So, I was told to take thyroid replacement therapy in the form of synthroid. Of course, I'm not taking it. As a result, my voice is becoming really raspy. What herbs or dherb products would you recommend to help with that? Much love and Respect.

    A:

    Wow! Glad to hear your story! And thank you for your words! For your thyroid condition, I recommend IODINE PHOSPHATE, THYROID FORMULA, and SIXTH CHAKRA. Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!

    Q: I was having issues with puss and blood filled boils on my vaginal walls and I constantly went to doctors who told me that It wasn't an STD but they could never tell me what it was. I finally went to a different office and the results of my culture came back stating that I had MRSA. I was then prescribed Bacterium DS, which is antibiotic containing sulfur. I took this and I didn't seem to have any issues for a while. Now I recently had a boil on my finger and on my back and I have a vaginal discharge, which a different doctor has diagnosed as MRSA (which I thought I was rid of). She also subscribed the Bacterium DS but this time the symptoms did not subside. Please let me know what you suggest for this ailment as the boils are painful and the vaginal discharge is causing much discomfort.

    A:

    Please read: â€BOILS†and â€VAGINAL ODORS AND DISCHARGEâ€.

    Q: I have been on prescription birth control for many years now. But recently, there has been a growing voice in the back of my mind telling me to stop. I've looked into alternative forms of birth control and none of them seemed appealing until I found your HERBAL CONTRACEPTION. I immediately stopped taking 'the pill', and plan on ordering the hebal contraceptive formula asap. I am wondering if I should start the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, as well as the Female Package to rid myself of the toxic synthetic hormones I've been takigh. What would be my best option for cleansing and restoring my body? Is it necessary? And is it a bad idea to begin the Birth Control Formula while detoxing?

    A:

    I would recommend that you first perform the FULL BODY DETOX, followed by the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE and then begin your natural birth control. These 2 cleanses will help undo the damage from the man-made BC pills. They (cleanses) should be done periodically! Every 3-4 months in your case!

    Q: I've really been suffering with some anxiety issues and was looking at the symptoms of an overactive thyroid, which seem to be most of my symptoms. I was also about to have sexual relations with my girl for the first time and my body just started heating up like I had a fever, and the anxiety hit me like a bomb. I had taken the JACKRABBIT FORMULA, but it felt like the Yohimbe had my heart racing and I couldn't maintain an erection anymore do to nervousness of failure. I also get sweaty palms and feet a lot. My heart starts racing sometimes just out the blue. Could this be an overactive thyroid? Do you have any other suggestions of what could be going on?

    A:

    It could be an over-active thyroid gland, Beloved! It could also be psycho-somatic. I think the Jackrabbit also played a role in your sweating situation too due to certain "warming" herbs. Learn yoga and meditation, Beloved. It's all in the mind, Good brother. The keys to life are in the mind. Check out our new e-book MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL.

    Q: Can you please advise if the colon cleansing will have any effects if I suffer from loose stools rather than constipation? Have had issues with loose stools since my gall bladder was removed. Some improvement when I was diagnosed with thyroid disease and began taking Synthroid, but I still have issues with very loose stools and severe gas at times. Can this colon cleansing relieve these issues? Also, I have an allergy to nuts, all kinds. Can I still take the cleansing formulas that include the shells of walnuts; I believe is what it said. I must be very careful because I have been hospitalized after ingesting a very minute amount of what I think was peanuts. Your advice would be greatly appreciated as I am very interested in trying your products but at the same time I must be careful with my allergies. Also I’m allergic to eggs.

    A:

    YOU WOULD BENEFIT FROM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. BLACK WALNUT HULLS ARE SAFE FOR YOU. IT'S NOT ACTUALLY A NUT, BUT THE HULL FROM IT. ALLERGIES ARE OVERCOME WITH DEEP CLEANSING ON THE CELLULAR AND TISSUE LEVEL. REMOVAL OF THE GALLBLADDER HAS THROWN YOUR BODY OUT OF WHACK. HOWEVER, THE BODY DOES HAVE THE ABILITY TO COMPENSATE.
