Flmmaker Jeremy Seifert chronicles his story as a dad on a mission to uncover the truth about genetically modified foods and how the loss of seed diversity and laboratory assisted genetic alteration of food affects his young children.
Q: Hi, I'm a 36 year old African/American woman with 4 children whose been trying to lose weight off and on for the past 16 years. I lose the weight but then I gain it right back after I go off of my diet. I know that I need a good body/colon cleanse, but what I need to learn how to do is to eat the right food's to keep my body healthy. I've been conditioned to eat the foods that I do eat, I need to know how do I go about "de-programming" myself from the bad food's and program myself to want and crave the healthy one's? I'm open to any suggestion's you have, even using crystals and meditation. Thank you.
Time is limited here in "Ask the Herbalist" so I humbly request you consider a full length health consultation. However, I can tell you that you'd greatly benefit from a FULL BODY DETOX Cleanse.
Q: Thank you for the wonderful info you give to help us all live healthier lives. My concern is my hair loss. Is there an herbal remedies to help hair grow back like it did when I was in my young teens. I'm 41 years old now and my hair loss is primarily on the top. If you need to know my race (for any reason) I'm a black man. I do not want to use Rogain or any other chemicals to re grow my hair or pay money for hair transplants. Is there any hope to grow hair naturally or am I stuck with my genetic code of losing my hair? Thanks in advance!
Q: Well it seems almost all the food in the agric field is sprayed with pesticide. I want to know the genetic effect on food and on our body?
The chemical effect on food puts pollutants, posions, and toxics in our bodies which makes it necessary to detoxify our bodies 2-4 times per year. They also make us ACIDIC which causes the pH level in our body to be imbalanced, potentially causing a variety of issues with hormone production, and the immune system.
Q: How can I make the transition from cooked food, to raw food? Do you have any raw recipes for children? How can I get kids to eat raw?
Children do as you do, so let the child see you eating raw food as well. Fruits are the best raw foods to eat, as they are naturally sweet. Purchase "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual", for the numerous raw food resources to assist you in this transition.

Q: My co-worker has a 1 year old grand-daughter, who they recentlly found has 3 kidneys. This was discovered because she has constant fevers, and was not able to hold down any foods. The hospital she is currently taking the child to, has not assisted with any part of the child getting better. They seem to be giving her the run around. For example, scheduling appointments then cancelling etc. My co-workers seems to think, they are not getting fare treatment. Due to the fact her grand-daughter is receiving medicaid (government assisted health care). She says that they keep prescribing tylenol for the fever, and now the little girl may have a bladder infection. She has been, giving the 1 year old daily doses of tylenol for a few months now. I think that this should be stopped. Your knowledge is greatly appreciated.
By all means, that child needs to perform the Children's Detox to undo all the harm the poor child has suffered.
Q: I read the food chart for the FULL BODY DETOX. Is it ok to eat the cream of wheat while detoxing? I'm confused because on the food chart it mentioned alot of different foods, but it tell you the best thing to do is a all raw food diet such as salads and fruit, smoothies... I also plan to do the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN right after the FULL BODY DETOX and that requires a all raw food diet as well. So that means 2 months of strictly raw foods right? :( Its tough but I am determined too get rid of this hsv1 & hsv 2
I suggest you read the article â€WHAT IS RAW FOODSâ€ as it will help you to understand what to eat and what not to eat on the FULL BODY DETOX. Yes, all raw foods for 2 months (to the best of your ability, Beloved). YOU CAN DO IT, BELOVED! Did you read our "GENITAL HERPES" article?
Q: I HAVE A CONDITION CALLED ACHALASIA. IT AFFECTS MY ESOPHOGUS AND MY ABILITY TO GET FOOD INTO MY STOMACH. SYMPTOMS ARE DYSPLASIA AND REGURGITATION. IT IS A RARS CONDITION AND THE CAUSES ARE NOT KNOWN. ARE THERE ANY HERBS YOU CAN RECOMMEND THAT MY HELP?

Q: Could you please tell me if you recommend castor oil or black currant seed oil to be used with the PARASITE FORMULA and at what quantity ( 1 tsp or more?) Also, can you tell me your thoughts bad and good on black currant seed oil? And does either of these oils ingested cause weight gain because of the fatty content? Just trying to get a better understanding of these oils and the benefits and drawbacks of them.
Go with castor oil over black currant seed. These oils don't induce weight gain!
Q: I purchased Children's Elixir, Moringa Seed, Iodine, and Calcium extracts for my 6 month old son. I dont take him out that often, I need a Vitamin D Extract, or Multivitamin Extract. Do you think I need anything else, other than the products I mentioned above?
The best thing for the child is Khemetian Gold (which is liquid), Moringa Extract, and Iodine Phosphate Extract. These are all liquid! you can find them on our site under "Children's Extracts."

Q: What Are Some Natural Sweet Treats (Junk Foods) I can Consume? Under free will you can consume what you like, but healthier products are best. You will find plenty of "healthier" snack, treat, and junk foods at good health food stores such as Whole Foods Market, PCC Natural Food Stores, Erewhon, Trader Joes, Natural Grocers, New Frontiers, etc. Just make sure to abstain from salt, sugar, and other harmful chemicals in the products you buy.

Q: I am sending you this message because I am very concerned about my friend?s health. He's a young black man; age 31.He is highly STRESSED OUT on his job and has been experiencing patches of HAIR LOSS all through out his head. He went to see a doctor and is now taking some sort of medicine with steroids in it. I believe you can advise him on a more natural way (DHERBS) to control his STRESS & HAIR LOSS problem.
A: Consider supplementing with MSM, Hair, Skin, & Nails, Nerves Formula, and/or the Anti-Stress Inhaler. These products should greatly help with the mentioned symptoms your friend is experiencing. The stress is contributing to the hair loss.
Q: Thank you. I read the article on the ear and the following quote 'At Dherbs.Com we manufacturer and offer a very effective therapeutic healing ear oil that contains herbs, essential oils, and crystals and which can be used by infants, toddlers, young children, teens, adults, and elders alike.' Can you please give me the name of this oil?
It's the CHILDREN & INFANT EAR OIL EXTRACT
Q: I ran across a product of yours and I don't remember the name of it. It was drops and the purpose was to feed oxygen to your cells. There is a product call Cell Food that I use but for over a year but it seems to have some side affects now...would like to try something similar
The product is called OXY-DROPS!
Q: My daughter Heather is 4 yrs. old and is battling Candida. She has been on antibiotics from the age of 2 months till 1 yr. old about 8 times for ear infections. She developed constipation at 7 months, food allergies at 1 yr. and a lot of food intolerances. She also had heartburn and was getting bad rashes around her mouth when she ate. Unfortunately, I did not know about Candida so this went on for a couple of years. Despite my efforts of taking her to every doctor there was, no one could help me. Right now she is on a treatment for Candida, but she is so sensitive, she can't even tolerate a lot of the supplements. Her bowels do not move at all. I have to do enemas everyday to keep them going. Right now I'm having a hard time finding a laxative she can tolerate. I ordered the "Children?s laxative extract" from DHERBS but after 4 days of being on it her bowels still aren't moving. I started colonic therapy sessions for my daughter and we saw parasites come out of her. When I called DHERBS, I was recommended to e-mail you. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
For Candida, please know the antibiotic medication is the present cause of her persisitent candida (yeast infection). Read our article "Candida Albicans." She needs anti-fungal herbs, not antibiotic medication. These are harming her body.
The child is very acidic and this may be due to her diet (what you are feeding the child).
Have your child perform the Children's Detox for starters. A basic cleanse is greatly needed!
To target the Candida, make your child a tea consisting of Pau' D Arco. Let the tea cool down and add maple syrup (or agave nectar) and a little lemon. Let the child drink this sweetened tea throughout the day (even as a cold beverage).
Bathe the child in warm water and sea salt (1 box per bath). Add 5-6 drops of tea tree oil to each bath as well. Let the child soak in the water for 30-60 minutes. This bath is very alkalizing (which counteracts acidity).
Because she has parasites, have the child drink pomegranate juice (often) and eat plenty of pumpkin seeds (often).
For the enemas, make a tea of Dherbs Bowel Mover tea (let cool down). Pour tea into enema bag and perform an enema with the tea as the enema solution. Some days switch off from the tea and just add hydrogen peroxide (half an ounce per enema bag) to the enema solution (distilled water). Hydrogen peroxide breaks down into oxygen which kills parasites. You could even add 30 drops of Oxy-Drops to the enema bag and perform an enema using liquid oxygen.
It is imperative you put the child on a vegan vegetarian diet a.s.a.p.! Remove all meat and dairy products as well as all refined grains from her diet (as these feed worms and parasites).
Have the child drink prune juice before going to bed each night. Dilute the juice with water if necessary.
The child needs to eat a lot of fruits (i.e. plums, apples).
Continue to give the child Dherbs Children?s laxative extract daily, perhaps in the early evening hours.
Doing all of the above will cause positive changes in your child's situation. Just remember, drugs won't help her. Read ou article "Herbs vs. Pharmaceutical drugs" on our site.
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.
Q: I am getting ready to go in the field for 3 days with the Military, and there will not be a variety of food to choose from. I started the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN on 08-Jul-08. I know that I can still drink the master cleanse in the morning and drinking the tea. My only problem is the food. Will it be okay to eat some of the food and start right back to eating the right food on Monday?
IT WILL HAVE TO BE ALL RIGHT. DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO TO STAY ON THE CLEANSE. JUST GET BACK TO THE FOOD REGIMEN AS SOON AS YOU CAN (RETURNING FROM THE FIELD).
Q: My cat is currently having a hypersensitive reaction to canned food that I purchased from Whole Foods. It contained fish and I think it has upset my cat's stomach. Will your Cat and Dog Immune Booster Formula help stabilize his upset stomach? He responds well to the antibiotic from the vet however if I can give him something all natural to help his entire immune system then he and I won't have to go through the stress of going to the vet.
I say give your cat something natural to stablize the upset stomach. Immune Booster will greatly help your cat. Or, you could give your cat Electric Greens Cell Food (open up a few capsules) and the alkalinity from this formula will serve as an antacid.
Q: My 14 year old cousin's mom has checked her into to mental hospital. This entire school year she has ben dealing with alot going into high school, and other teen age issues. Her birth father is not in the home but, her mom has a pretty good man, that steps up, and does a good job with her two children. However, she has been battling with her weight, although she wasn't over weight she didn't feel thin enough like the other children at her school. Her mom found Hydroxycut in her room, and all hair feel out. This past weekend went to her mom's boyfriend and told him she tried to overdose on pills to kill herself, because of all the pressure. Her mom had her in therapy behind the weightloss issue, she thought she was ok, until this last suicidal mission. Is there any help or advice you can render. I told her mom that the hospital thing was a horrible idea due to the medication that they will be administering and other brain washing methods they use to further F*** you up so that when you are release you a labeled, and sure to be crazy. D-Herbs at 14 this is insane, her mom has given up hope, and gave her chiild into the hands of the enemy. I am conscious and try to talk to her but it doesn't seem to work.
That's an unfortunate situation. Have the mother read the information on Dherbs.com or schedule a consultation so she can speak with me live and direct. These are the only ways I know to help, Beloved. I'm also about to write an article on DEPRESSION, and the DANGERS OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS. Hang in there and know that your cousin wrote her own life script (before she was born), so she is gaining an experience so as to learn a life lesson for her soul's purpose. It doesn't make sense on a lower level, but on a higher level, it all will add up and make sense. God's hand is over everything, even those things that appear bad.
