    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: 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: We have ordered The Children's Pancreas Kit for my nine year old daughter. My daughter was diagnosed a diabetic last June. We started giving her the 6th formula. The issue we have now, is formula 4 which contains Licorice root. My Daughter is allergic Licorice root". Can we order the kit without Licorice root?

    A:

    Unfortunately we don't customize formulas. What you can do is find an extract of Cascara Sagrada, or Senna leaf, and supplement with that product. Just make sure it is alcohol free! You could even just give the child prune juice (perhaps diluted with water) in place of Formula #6.

    Q: I have recently made the transformation to becoming a complete vegan. How can I determine what foods are for vegans?

    A:

    Simple question to the self that you can always ask now as a vegan, "Is this product derived from an animal?", and you'll never go wrong as a vegan. Two good questions, to help you make your own decisions as a conscious consumer and vegan: Is it nautral (from the Earth/plant)? Is it from animal? Always ask yourself these 2 questions when in doubt!

    I could use all the help available! It's not easy being one person. I just need people who are committed though. And yes, I talk to plenty of churches here in California. I will talk to anyone who listens. I even teach health and nutrition from a Biblical perspective too. I only require hotel lodging, airline (United Airlines only), ground transportation, and if possible, a love offering. I'm always available to speak to God's people. Always! Thank you Elton! Thank you for your interest. There's no greater service today in the world than servicing people. Peace and Love!
