Q: I'm interested in purchasing the Leo Formula. I was born on August 23, some years the Sun went into Leo on the 22nd, and some years the Sun entered Leo on the 24th. Usually the Sun enters Leo on the 22nd. The year I was born, and the time I was born, the Sun was still in Leo at 29`degrees. Many astrologers ends the Leo cycle on the 22nd of August. This is not always the case. I am born on the cusp of Leo-Virgo. Would you suggest I take the herbal formular for both signs? Thanks for reading!
You could take the formula of both signs since you are born on the cusp. However, always remember that even though a sign ends on a particular day i.e. August 22, it takes approximately 5 days for the next sign to kick in energy-wise. So, people (Virgo's) born From August 23-27 are still under the influence of Leo, and thus technically, you'd only have to be concerned about Leo. Cusp people are influenced by the traits of the 2 annexing signs.
Q: I have heard things about starch not being good for you, but foods such as potatoes, rice, and corn naturally contain starch. So should these foods be avoided?
Just don't eat a lot of them, if you can't avoid them completely. Moderation in all things (within reason)!

It's not so simple in just recommending herbs to take. You must know certain information to go along with diet and herbs and as such I would really suggest you schedule a health consultation which you'll greatly benefit from. Her product-wise, I'd recommend the child perform the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) and then drink IRON PHOSPHATE TEA (2 cups) daily. Oh, please read our 2 articles we have written on sickle cell as they are loaded with valuable information. Stop worrying! There's plenty you can do for your child!
Q: I really need your help concerning my son. He is only 2 years old, but he has suffered with mucus build up and chest congestion since he was born. I only give him soymilk now. No other dairy. Several times a month he coughs up mucus and it is difficult for him to breath. Do you have something that can help him? He also has to use the nebulizer machine for breathing treatments.
I recommend you give your son Mullein Leaf Extract or Dherbs Lung Extract. Serve him mullein tea (with maple syrup for sweetness and a little lemon juice) EVERY DAY!
Rub olive oil on his chest and rub in 3-4 drops of Eucalyptus oil, before he goes to bed every night.
Switch from soymilk to almond milk if possible.
Give him plenty of water to drink too!
Q: My 4-year-old son has had mucus in his body since he was born probably, definitely due to the way I was eating back then while I was pregnant. Every morning he wakes up with a stuffy nose, summer or winter, and every day he sneezes several times and Every time there is plenty of snot that comes out. He has done the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) once along with the elixir. What else can I do to get rid of all the mucus in him?
Give the child "Mullein Leaf tea" (sweetened with maple syrup and a zest of lemon juice). DAILY!!! The child cannot eat meat or dairy products nor refined grains and starches.

Q: I was reading your article on Astrological Health and I am a Scorpio woman, born on October 31, who does not have a strong sex drive at all. In fact I've never really been into sex at all which has made my partners upset and discouraged at times and has had me thinking that something may be wrong with me. I have even considered seeing a sexual doctor about these issues. You state that the "Scorpio governs the genitalia or sex" and this explains our sex drive but yet I've been sexually active for 7 years and have also never had an orgasm. I was molested from ages 4 to 11 and sometimes I think this has something to do with how I am but I'm just not sure. I would really like to increase my sex drive and be able to orgasm and have considered taking your bunny rabbit formula in order to fix this but now knowing that astrologically I'm supposed to be opposite of how I am (which I've heard before but didn't know the extent until now), I'm beginning to think something is seriously wrong with me. What are your thoughts?
Please consider scheduling a consultation so we can get to the root of the issue and help you to unblock your blockages that are preventing you from truly enjoying sex and having an orgasm. Consultations are now half price ($50). There is healing and help for you! You're just missing the knowledge you require.

Q: What are some natural herbs that I can give my son for hypoglycemia? He gets lightheadedness a lot and has passed out from time to time. He also goes through mood swings, and also eats a lot of starch and sugar which I have tried to regulate but am not always around him to keep him from consuming them. My son is fifteen years old.

Q: I wanted to know if your OZ OIL would be good for dark under eye circles that I have. The circles are just under my eyes and I was not born with this condition and I do not know what is the cause. I use to be a smoker could the circles be the result of years of smoking? Please help I want to use a natural method and tried other (drug store) products. Thank you and I look forward to your advise.

Q: Mr. DHERBS are there foods- such as fruits and vegetables that would help humans, expands ones IQ, comprehensive level, and even be more humane, is there such a diet. LJ
Yes, there is such a diet and the herbivores in the wild are proof of it. Just eat raw foods and you'll be fine. Drink plenty of Gotu Kola tea daily and this will help expand the IQ. Our BRAIN TUNER Formula is very ideal for this
Q: Hi, me again. (Just letting u know I really appreciate this site and the work Dherbs.com and the others are doing. hotep) I've heard over and over that there are worms and parasites visible to the human eye in all forms of meat and I wanted to know the process with which I could see these parasites. Also I asked before about starch in carbs and was wondering is it best to eliminate carbs completely, or just reduce, and also if eating whole wheat/whole grain.
You don't have to eliminate anything completely, except for meat, dairy, and artificial salt and sugar. Just cut back on your carbs. Refined grains, such as breads, cereals, pastas, should be eliminated.
We are have numerous informational articles available under ARTICLES on our site. Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.
Q: Hello Mr. DHerbs. I am writing because I have eczema on my neck, back, arms, stomach and toes. I have suffered with this for years & I cannot get rid of it. Also I have a stomach that I am having trouble to get flat. Can you please help me. I am a 37 yr old black female that would just like to feel healthy, I don't drink or smoke and I try to eat healthy most of the time, so what am I doing wrong?. Please give me your advice. Thank you very much.
Q: I am writing you with concern for my father. He is 54 years old, and was just diagnosed with an enlarged heart. He is very worried, and to be honest I am too. I told him that he immediately needs to go on the Full Body Detox. Start a raw foods diet that includes no meats, and no dairy. Do you think he should get a colonic? Should he get it first? He began running this morning, and has been walking in the evenings. He has a HUGE stomach. It looks as if he is about 8 months pregnant. SOLID! We live in the Philadelphia Area and we are Muslim. The only person we know that is GOOD as far as colonics is a female, and he has some reservations about that. My mother always says "Do what you gotta do". What steps should he take to heal his body? In what order? I know it may be kind of hard to diagnose, or give steps to a third person. I am really concerned, and afraid that his concern may cause more damage to his heart. I am almost certain that my father would not mind talking to you. He may be impressed with your knowledge. All the herbalist we know thus far have been women. As soon as he told us of his illness I immediately thought of you. I pray that you can help us. We all as a family need to get our health together. PLEASE HELP US the best way you can. . . . .
It's the easiest thing to take care of. Detox the body with the Full Body Detox followed by the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse. He will drink Hearty Heart tea during both cleanses. The man has eaten himself into this condition via poor diet so reversed diet is the way out. More raw foods (fruits and vegetable), vegetable juice.
Q: What are your diet and supplement recommendations for a baby that has Candida - 17 months old? She can only eat meat/eggs/low carb vegetables (no sugar, starch, fruit, corn or potato). Please advise. I bought your Children's detox and elixir products. I haven't given them to her. The mom did have Candida when she was pregnant with the child.
By all means, start giving the baby the herbs!

Q: Happy New Year to You and yours!!! My son is three years old; he was born December 12, 2004, this was a Sunday. Ever since he started talking he's had a fascination with the light and light bulbs. He looks up and says "mom look, the light is beautiful" or "mom see the beautiful light bulb". I look at it and I usually say yes it is beautiful Jordan. However, I do not see what he sees nor do I understand the attraction. When he was two weeks old I took him with me to Olive May and the old wise woman there saw him and asked me to bring him to her. When she looked at him she said "he is indigo--he is like sunshine when he enters a room and people will be drawn to him." So far the part about people being drawn to him has manifest true. What do you think of the attraction/fascination to the lights? Also, I read that awesome article on birthmarks!! I don't have one, however, my son has one on his buttock; I don't remember which one at the moment. His primary pediatrician called it a mongolian spot..what do you say?? Does it mean he will fall and hurt himself or has fallen?? Looking forward to seeing you in March. Love, Peace and Blessings.
You son is most definitely an INDIGO CHILD (specifically a CRYSTAL or RAINBOW CHILD manifesting all 7 spectrums of color of the Rainbow). His preoccupation with lights could denote many things. For one, he is Light himself (light-worker). It could be that he still remembers the Light before re-incarnating this time around. We all eventually move into the Light in order to move on. Mongolian spot? A very negative term! Buttocks denote an injury that occured on that area in a past life. Birthmarks don't mean something adverse will happen to you in this lifetime where your birthmark is. It doesn't mean this at all. Just be open to experience and learn from and with your child. Live in the moment and just be open!
