    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've had Crohn's since 1989. Months later, I developed a vaginal fistula. Since then, I've had a partial colectomy of the left colon, hemicolectomy of the right colon, and I had a partial hysterectomy. During the same time they did an ileostomy. I wore it for 3 months. When they took it down, it did not repair the fistula. Some months later, I developed a vaginal cyst, and I began taking Lupron injections to reduce it. It reduced the cyst, but threw my body into menopause. Now I'm having problems with my sight, memory, and other menopausal symptons. Also since 1992, my breath began to smell, and when I use the bathroom, it smells awful. I want to be healed from Crohn's, but my main problem right now is, how I smell. I can't keep existing like this. I'm battling diarrhea, pain, anemia, fatigue, depression, gas, and bloating. I've asked my GI about detoxing, because I believe that's one thing that would make me feel better, but he says no. He doesn't know what to do about my breath, and neither do I anymore. What do you suggest?

    A:

    You should listen to how you feel and DETOX! Detoxing will help you, and your situation. The drugs have made you toxic! Here's what you need to do first and foremost, perform the Full Body Detox, followed by the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse, followed by the 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanse. While performing these cleanses, drink 1 cup of Female Health Tea daily, and read the "Mental Science Manual" and apply the principles.

    Q: My baby and I have developed a bug! We've been in hospital since last night. My temperature is 41 degrees my baby's 37. We're both on a drip; getting antibiotics both are very dehydrated. All my family are blaming dherbs but I know better. Please send me something I can READ TO MY FAMILY AND REASSURE THEM THAT DHERBS IS NOT THE REASON. KIND REGARDS. GOD BLESS YOU

    A:

    I can assure you herbs do not cause what you are experiencing. A bug may be doctor's lingo for any healing crisis. However, a bug is not a form of healing crisis. If you would have suffered from anything herbally, those doctors would have told you. A bug is a so-called virus (in doctor's lore) but viruses do not exist. Virus means "poison" as in "poisonous blood" and herbs do not poison the blood but simply remove poisons from the blood. If your family wants to legitimately blame Dherbs, get a blood analysis done. But again, the doctors have told you that you developed a bug. They didn't say you had an allergic reaction to anything. From time to time we experience these problems with people but it's always limited to the person's specific case. Breast-feeding does not weaken the body. Toxins do not go into the breasts but exit via the eliminative channels. My wife performed the FULL BODY DETOX while breast-feeding our 2-month old son and absolutely NADA! I always tell people to deal with a situation and when they get back on their feet show people wrong by performing your desired cleanse successfully. You're not the first situation of this sort. Not at all! Hang in there, Love!

    Q: I am writing to ask a couple of questions. I was reading one of the articles and it talked about the different types of cooking oil not to use. I wanted to know what would be a good cooking oil to use? I was looking for articles on HIV but didn't find any. I heard you on Warren Balentine speak briefly about AIDS. Can you enlighten me more? Also you talked about a home first aid kit in one of your articles. What exactly should be in a home first aid kit and is this mentioned in your e-book ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL, which I am about to order? And by me having a Mac book would I still be able to download the ebook?

    A:

    Using a Mac book to download, should not be a problem for one of our e-books. Good cooking oils include: olive oil, grape seed oil, safflower oil. In re HIV and AIDS and Home First Aid Kit, the articles will be up next week. So stay tuned, Beloved!

    Q: I just got your Pancreas Kit and ready to start 3 weeks Regimen. I have couple questions about diet: 1. Fruits - can I eat only those you've listed, or any other allowed? I am a Type 2 diabetic, and any melons or bananas raise my blood sugar. What about green apples, strawberries and raspberries?

    A:

    DHERBS: Eat your favorite fruit while monitoring your blood sugar level. It may take some time before your blood sugar levels are regulated and you can return to eating fruit. But try eating what fruits you like while monitoring your BS levels. Be intelligent and use common sense and trust your intuition here.

    2. Can I have whole wheat bread?

    DHERBS: NO!

    3. Can I have eggs, or you consider them dairy?

    DHERBS: NO! Eggs come from animal!

    4. What do you mean by cruciferous salad? Can I add tomatoes, celery, onions, etc.? Any limitations for vegetables?

    DHERBS: Cruciferous means leafy i.e. leafy vegetables (Romain lettuce, Green lettuce). Yes, you can add other vegetables you like and desire.

    5. You've mentioned trail mix, are dried fruits allowed?

    DHERBS: Yes, but watch your BS levels!

    6. How can I replace vegetable juices? Eat more cabbage and brussel sprouts? Are beans allowed in this diet?

    DHERBS: You can't replace vegetable juice. Either you drink it or you don't! Eat more cabbage and brussel sprouts. Cooked beans are not allowed in the diet.

    Q: My question is a 2 part question. My daughter has Trisomy 21 and has tubes in her ears. Her ear canals are very small and her ears are normally developed. She is 18 months old and I was wondering if it would be okay to do Ear Coning and would this affect the ear tubes? The second question is what causes the tonsils to enlarge (cold/infection)? Is there a product that can be used so that she can keep her tonsils?

    A:

    It's too early to perform ear coning on her (unless you can find very small cones). Wait till age 2. Give her ear drops! Enlarged tonsils are inflamed due to mucus buildup. Product or no product, you never allow anyone to remove what God gave the body. However, there are many products. Give our MUCUS BUSTER TEAa try. Put it in a bottle and give to the child. You can sweeten it a little with maple syrup.

    Q: Thank you for always answering my questions. I have about two more. Okay, I'm currently living overseas where I'm limited on raw fresh foods (vegetables and fruits). I want to do the detox but I'm concerned that I won't have everything as far as raw food to be successful. I have access to basics (apples, oranges, bananas, tomatoes, avocados, melons, lettuce, cabbage, bean spouts, carrots, celery, peppers, green beans, peas, bagged nuts,) but nothing exotic by any means. Then I was told to safely eat some of the food in the local economy that we should wash it with a 5% bleach solution (is that safe...and if on the detox I'm thinking that would be a no go). Two questions?Given the mentioned availability of raw foods could I be able to successfully complete the detox (I don't have an issue with eating the same things over and over again) and two what can I do to clean local produce so that its safe for consumption? Apparently part of the issue is that they use human feces to fertilize. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response

    A:

    Yes, it seems you have enough raw food available to you to complete the cleanse.

    In order to clean local produce, rinse thoroughly with apple cider vinegar to "disinfect" it. If apple cider vinegar is unavailable, just use water.

    Q: I'm doing the Full Body Cleanse and I have a few questions about it: I get tired of drinking just the distilled water and I'd like to drink the herbal teas, but I don't like it by itself. Would it mess things up to add a pack or two of Splenda to my tea or maybe honey? I can't stand the salads with the olive oil or apple cider vinegar or the lemon juice as dressing and it makes me gag. I have To have some sort of salad dressing. What kind would be suitable? Do I look for sugar-free? Or organic and natural? I found one that is organic and natural, but it has 3 grams of sugar in it. Without eating all my whole grained breads and other fiber, I haven't had much of a bowel movement in 3 days, should I wait a while yet? (I had surgery on my bowels and always had to take fiber tablets and eat lots of grains to get my bowels to move.) I haven't done the enemas yet, (low on money) should I try that? Or should I resume my fiber tablets I normally take? Any type of fiber I could add to my fruit smoothies in the morning? I want to also do the female cleanse. Is it ok to do that immediately after I finish the full body cleanse or should I wait for a little while? Thank you for all your help, I feel much better than I did before and I just started this detox a week ago, lost 10 pounds, too, woohoooooo! Thank you

    A:

    1. Instead of splenda, use agave, stevia, or grade b maple syrup as a sweetener.

    2. In re Salad Dressing, an organic and natural one is great. You can also check our website for salad dressing recipes.

    3. The fiber pills are not part of the cleanse, so we wouldn't advise those. Fruit is you best choice of fiber so look into eating more papaya, mango, figs, etc. And yes, colonics (and enemas) would greatly help you - undoubtedly!

    4. You can do the Female Cleanse right after you finish detoxing. There's no need to wait!

    Q: Hello there. I have two questions actually. First, my brother has a really bad nail fungus and I wanted to know if you could recommend any natural ways to heal this. I have recently turned to herbal/natural healing and am trying to get my family on the same path. Second, I finished the full body detox and I am almost done with the anti-viral kit but I faltered on the diet twice...eating cookies :( Is this going to affect my results? Thank you for everything too, by the way. You have been an inspiration and my lifestyle changes have been wonderous!!

    A:

    For nail fungus: soak the hands in hot water, hydrogen peroxide, 6 drops of Tea Tree oil for about 30 minutes. Cookies on the diet? It may have done minimal damage! But you can always perform it again! Glad to know I have helped to inspire you! Keep up the good work!

    Q: I have contracted HPV and have developed perianal warts and warts on my penis. I have been using aldara cream and cryotherapy to no success, and am now ready to fight the disease from the inside out. However, I am a college student and the Anti Viral Kit is just too expensive for my budget. I also am interested in detoxing my body. What products would you suggest?

    A:

    You are not FIGHTING the disease. You know the disease and your body to listen to the message they both are conveying. Save your money so that you can do the FULL BODY DETOX and ANTI-VIRAL kits. For diet (what you should eat), order the ALTERNATIVE DIET & LIFESTYLE MANUAL. Keep the faith!

    Q: I see also that you recommend a complete diet with these programs. I am guessing its a vegan diet right? I wanted to ask something on that is coconut milk and coconut oils ok for that? I personally had a very hard time trying to eat that many vegetables and many ph balance vegans seem to think fruits aren?t good either. I eat that many vegetables one it tears me up the next day and two I just cant consume enough calories that way. I can try and make up for it by eating things like almonds but I eat to many almonds I get the same problem the next day. Now coconut milk (unsweetened) and a digestive enzyme works for me for picking up extra calories.... but I hear very conflicting information about coconut and its saturated fat content. Is it ok to use daily as a part of the diet for cleansing? And your oxy-drops are those the same as the drop for ph balancing water?? Or is it something different? I am wanting to start lifting weights as I need to put on some muscle and I?m wondering if its something that would be beneficial in combating muscle soreness by increased oxygen in the body.

    A:

    The diet we recommend is vegan-based, and RAW FOODS. Fresh fruits, vegetables, raw nuts and seeds are ideal.

    Coconut Milk and Coconut Oil are excellent products to have in your diet. The healthy fats will keep you fuller.

    Oxy-Drops can help balance your electrolytes that need to be replenished after a workout in order to keep your body performing efficiently.

    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'm currently on the Full Body Cleanse. It's my 10th day. :) I have developed some sores and tenderness in my mouth. Is this from the cleanse?

    A:

    The mouth sores and tenderness is NOT from the detox, but are symptoms of your body's healing, which the detox has greatly initiated.

    You see, the herbs don't dictate where the emphasis goes (as far as healing goes), the body does. The body knows all the areas of your body that need addressing (emotionally as well as physically).

    Internal skin is skin just as well and the skin is the body's largest organ of elimination, so your body will use whatever channel is available to eliminate waste from the body.

    The mouth is part of the alimentary canal so this situation with your mouth only and simply denotes that much healing is taking place in your colon.

    Mouth sores are only temporary but they do dictate that the mouth's pH balance is too acidic. The mouth is naturally acidic, but it's a healthy acidic (6.8 pH)

    .

    To facilitate healing of the mouth sores, gargle with a little tea tree oil (2-3 drops), hydrogen peroxide (half a teaspoon), and sea salt (half a teaspoon) in some warm water, throughout the day.

    Q: Approximately two weeks ago, I developed dry, itchy patches on my back. Several things changed during this period, I started using Nubian Heritage Shea Butter soap, I starting the Full Body Detox, I received a deep tissue massage in which the primary focus was my back (olive oil mixed with sesame oil). Also I put Oxydrops, in Dherbs Hair Oil, and Healing Skin Oil. I used the Creativity and Abundance Elixirs. Do you think these changes have something to do with the dry itchy patched on my back?

    A:

    Please read the article "Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder" in our articles section. It may be "healing crisis" if the problem started after using natural products.

    Q: Hi Dherbs. I'm pregnant. I've been slacking off with my diet for years now, eating just about every bad thing but pork. I had gestational diabetes with my last pregnancy. Now I may have it again with my current pregnancy at 4 months. They're going to give me the 3 hr test and I know they'll try to make me take insulin. I really don't want to shoot myself with needles. It wasn't a pleasant experience last time. Anyway to make a long story short, I wanted to know if the following would be good products to work on the situation: FULL BODY DETOX SUGAR BUSTER TEA PANCREAS FORMULA Would any of these pose a problem or interact poorly with my baby? Do you suggest any other effective formula of yours to improve my glucose uptake and general health during this pregnancy?

    A:

    I highly suggest the 10-DAY ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD CLEANSE for pregnant women. This cleanse will help to address all your needs and all health concerns. You can perform it as much as you like too! It provides great nutrition for mother and developing child.

    Q: I tried Sugar Buster recently, did not have the effect I (thought). Should I continue to use, or is there another product I should consider? My reason for asking is I am about to start a (fat) loss program and I recognize that sweets/chocolate is my problem. Not necessarily food in an of itself. Please explain how you were taking SUGAR BUSTER.

    A:

    Ideally, 3 capsules should be taken in the morning on an empty stomach. When cravings are strong, and addition 3 capsules should be taken in the course of the day, or after you have eaten something sweet.

    Q: I just recently completed the FULL BODY DETOX and have developed a taste for distilled water, with two additional gallons of water left. Are there any harmful effects of drinking distilled water over a prolonged period of time?

    A:

    Yes, it can leech vital minerals from your body. Spring water is better! But you should be fine finishing the 2 gallons.
