Hey guys doing things a little differently this week. Decided yesterday that I’d speak after returning to the gym today. Yup returning. I was out for the count last week due to a knee injury and a car towing. Not all week, but four of the seven ya

Saturday shake going up! And boy was it needed. Those #HungerGames were starting to flare up. Lol. No nickname for this one I was just hungry as hell and needed a fix. I think I damn near sprinted from my car to the kitchen. Lmao #seriously Try it though. My base is usually kale, threw in half on an English cucumber, chia seeds, an apple and my natural sweetener a banana. #SoGood its got a brotha boy was done.

Someone brought me flowers while I wasn’t on my feet. Men like flowers too. (In a really deep tone) lol

Today I got back on the horse, my energy was top flight and I was ready to feel the burn of a long strong session. I spent 2 ½ hours enjoying myself to the fullest. Kind of didn’t realize how much I enjoy working out until I couldn’t. I was a wreck too y’all. Lol. The whole dramatic shabang, bang, bizzle! The car wore me out because it was one thing after the other. I count it all a learning experience but that knee! Whew baby. I injured myself coming down a hill. Took me out for a little minute because I couldn’t put pressure on it. Its much better now though and today was proving ground.

I’ll get into the workout in a minute; I wanted to first mention that while on rest I continued to take my Dherbs Cleanse…

January 26th, 2015

I’m happy to report that I lost three pounds while doing NOTHING! Well, nothing but eating properly and taking my herbs. I was suspired my self! Lol. Yup! One of those “man this cleanse really works! I liked this particular experience because I could have easily gotten into the thinking that working out alone could do the trick. But no, the change in my diet in addition to my commitment to the cleanse has been amazing. I’m doing it differently this time around. Not for anyone but myself, my health my Life. It feels Good and I’m continuing my journey. Like I said, I think I needed the rest and to see the Cleanse thing Work. 

Jumped to the scale today for a by chance weigh in. Ahh progress.

 

Back to the workput! It was supper cool I actually pushed harder today and it felt great. I hit the treadmill for about three miles plus and even got a lil jog in there. I then hit the weights and a couple of the machines; Chest Press, Leg Press, Bicep Curler and a couple others that I don’t know the name of. I stretched to all out after too. I learned the hard way that not stretching is a midnight tail whooping. Legs go crazy.

I wanted to leave you guys with a Reprise of one of my first ever blogs at the request of a few readers. Emotional Muscle is equally important to physical muscle as we tread this road to freedom from our past bodies.

Emotional Muscle

Posted on December 4, 2009 by Abraham Mc Donald

What a day… a lot of smiles and self realizations… Hmm. I wish my emotional muscle could get stronger at rapid speed. Sometimes the things that hurt us aren’t meant to, ya know? Hold on though… With each trial comes NEW understanding and purifying rain. That refreshing rain will cleanse your thoughts, softening the self afflicted blow we often trial ourselves with.

I remember back a few months ago, maybe 7 months : ) I had come to a serious wall in my life. I realized that I was the hold up; I was concerned most of the day with what YOU, others… thought. Beating myself daily with who I wasn’t” and what I could have done… I leaned into what I thought was the life I was to live. Even pretending that I was complete. As with most of us… I was stuck in myself, screaming, climbing and scratching for some sort of normalcy. I wanted to feel alive, affirmed and validated. But it was costing me too much of my “love energy. I burned out and came to a screeching halt. Whew!!!! Glad that’s all over. Lol.

This blog is an account of what the past eighteen months of my life have looked like. I learned a long time ago that every Champion has a theme song…or ten…lol. The songs that helped me to regain my self love, forgive my offenders, myself and challenged me to see myself has who my creator made me to be.

THE RED TRUCK: I heard your voice
Back in October 08 I bought a red Chevy Tahoe, it was what I wanted to believe, my dream car. A symbol of my work and accomplishment, the “G” ride that I knew was gonna increase my value on all ends. It was sittin on some chromed out Italian phatties with a couple of screens, some serious beat and an ego that was brighter than the color of the whip itself. An obnoxious display. Lol. In all of it’s splendor. I felt better because of the car, I looked better because of the car and even had a few new passengers that I’m certain would not have gotten in the 94 Chezy hooptie I been rollin round in now…lol. Long and short. I was feelin good.

Dec 7th 08: You ever hear a whisper in your ear but nobody’s there? And you’re certain ya heard it, but don’t wanna convince ya’self that you’re crazy in that moment…haha. Well, check. So a friend rings me up and says lets hang. I wasn’t pressed so I said sure. About five minutes after the call I hear “Don’t do it. Right! so I look around the bathroom…as if someone could have come through the ceiling…lol. And I hear it again… “Don’t Do It. By now… Lol. I’m like pulling shower curtains back, done turned the water off at the sink. I mean, I was really freaked. And then the phone rings again… It’s my folks again… “We aren’t gonna make it. “No worries” I returned and hung up.

All good right? Because this voice in the bathroom done already told me that this hang is a bad idea. Lol. But real. Walk with me on this. YES. YOU! Focus!!! Lol.

But check, then I get a third call…”we’re just gonna roll through. “All good”, I return. Completely ignoring this voice I’ve heard while in the bathroom. Why did I do that!!!!

I oblige and before ya know it there are several folk at my spot, and some I really don’t know. It didn’t get out of hand per say. It was just that people I didn’t know were in my personal space and I wasn’t diggin it. My folks brought folks who brought folks… Toward the end of the night I notice a guest lingering… So I asked, what are you waiting on? It’s time!

A bit curt, I know… but hey!

I see that the guys ride has left though and with no warning. After a few calls and a definite that his ride was not coming back, I offer the floor to him and a blanket and pillow; something I would hope would be offered to me if I were stranded. When the morning came all was well and in order. The sun crept in my room, sending a warm hue over my face, opening my eyes to the day. I even heard birds outside chirping away.

I go in the living room and the guest is still sprawled on the floor. “Hey doc…it’s time. You should call your folks again. I know somebody can grab you if you catch uhm now”. Guest, “yeah, let me do that now”. He places a couple of calls and lets me know that he’s just gonna jump on the buss. “Ain’t nobody answering man”. I return…”Okay doc, do ya do. ya dig? And off to my room I went, not realizing that I’ve left my keys in the living room.

And as I’m on a call I notice that I don’t hear anything…nothin, not a drop. I jump up and walk to the living room to see the door slightly open. No keys on the mantle and no sign of the guest. I go outside to the back car port and no Red Tahoe either!!!!!!!!! Disgusted I was ooooooohhhhh DISGUSTED!!!! Lol… Not because the car was gone… But that I had been so far from my love source that I didn’t even recognize His voice.

Though my car was stolen on the day that the First note was due… I was grateful that I could hear again. And in every lesson there’s a message. I got a couple on this round.

1. Had my thinking/emotional muscle been in tact… This wouldn’t even be a story cuzz I would have had an empty home that night. Lol.
2. I realized that the car had become my pride. It was bigger than me to me… And who really wants to validate their existence based on a “thing”.
3. If you ever hear a voice over ya shoulder… Listen to it. In most cases, you’ll save yourself a ton of headache by trusting your discernment.

Now!!! On to the good. A year to that date, Dec 8, 09… I bought a new joint that’s fly and less obnoxious : )

When you get a chance… Check out this link. Feelin Good” Nina Simone… She’s on my Champion Theme list.

    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: Dear Sir, I was told that you were going to be sending me an email about my situation. I've wrote you a few times giving you bits and pieces of information it seems. I was asking one of your representatives about surgery and from the information I gave him he seems to think that I didn't give you all the information that I should have. Well about 13 years ago a lump formed in my breast after my 4th child was born. For years it's just been there. In 2005, after a mammogram they found calcifications in my breast. They did a biopsy and it came back fine. Six months later they decided that they wanted to remove the lump and when they did they found a small tumor. Since then I've taken herbs and God completely healed me. Well after another six months the lump came back but I didn't want any more surgery so I looked up poultice in my "Back to Eden" book and found a poultice that I used. I mixed flax seed meal, yellow corn meal, and funnelgreek tea together and left the poultice on my breast overnight for three nights. My breast began to get sensitive so I stopped using it. About a week later I noticed that the ducted around my nipple was indented, soon after that my nipple itself went inward, then after that I noticed what I thought was another lump in my breast but over a short period of time the lump extended from my armpit to my nipple. Now that whole area is hard and red. I got an ultrasound done and it revealed that I have swelling and cystic form in my breast. They want to do a biopsy but I am against it from what happened last time. Now I have pain in my arm also and at night I can barely sleep. I am at my wits end and don't know what to do except maybe go ahead and let me cut my breast. I have started your Detox program and I know it's working on my body but I don't want if it's doing anything for my swollen tissue inside my breast. I have lost my concentration because I'm constantly reminded about my breast because of the pain. I am a full time student but I'm thinking about dropping out of my classes until this issue is resolved because I can't focus on anything but the pain right now. I went a different doctor on 10/27/08 and they did a cvc (whatever that is) looking for an infection inside my body. The test came back normal, but my scheduled ultrasound is not for another week and I've told them that I'm in pain and need something done now. But they said that's the first available time.

    A:

    It appears the pain is just too unbearable for you and as such you may have to give in to the surgery in order to get immediate but short term relief. I had a friend who experienced what you experienced and the pain was so unbearable she couldn't sleep. I felt for her and I feel for you. I think you must do what is necessary for elimination or reduction of pain first and foremost. The FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) is helping your swollen tissues, but it seems you mind is so distracted that you are in doubt mode and doubt is the subconscious will to fail. If you know you can't do what you need to do (naturally) to deal with this situation, do what you must for present day relief. You have free will here, Beloved! Please use FEMALE BREAST OIL and Drink FEMALE HEALTH TEA during your FBD.

    Q: Greetings, I wanted to first say thanks for all of the great advice you have given me over the past couple of months. On Tuesday my husband and I welcomed our second daughter into the world. We had a natural birth with a midwife, and it was the best experience ever! So, you know I have a question for you. My midwife, and pediatrician are worried, and preplexed because my daughter who was born on Tuesday has not had a bowel movement yet. She has not passed any meconium at all, and from what I've read newborns are supposed to pass this within 24 hours after birth. I was full term at 40 weeks at the time of delivery. The baby had a full ultrasound today, and I am waiting to hear the results. We are keeping a positive outlook, but you know I had to get your take on the situation because I trust your judgement and advice. I've also sent you a few photos of my family and our new baby girl. Take care and the best to you and your family.

    A:

    Greetings! Wow! Adorable, precious little baby. Kudos to you and the family! Beloved, trust in Nature. Every body, and every baby is different. The baby will release when he/she is ready to release. My recent son didn't release until 2-3 days later. However, he eventually released. Babies are not on our worldly time schedule. We shouldn't hold them to our worldly expectations, because then we start to think something is wrong (with them), and start worrying which is unhealthy. Just show the love! That's it! Nature got this!!! I have a new e-book "The Complete Home-Birth Guidebook" you will find of great assistance with your post-natal process and period. Great information for you in it! Peace and love!

    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: Thanks so much for all the wonderful info! I had a chance to look at some of your products and I like what I see. There is so much good stuff here. I just finished a 60 day sugar/fat cleanse. I basically cut out all diary, white sugar, flour, pasta, etc (I was already eating a veggie diet) I did very well with the cleanse and I want to keep it going. I lost almost 20 pounds, but I started eating a little differently, since I had some events for the past couple weeks and the weight started coming back on. I'm aware that I have a slow metabolism, but I do exercise (4 to 5x a week) and I generally eat pretty well. I have about another 40 pounds I want to loose and continue to be healthy and energetic. Also, my husband and I are also trying to have our first child. Do you have any suggestions?

    A:

    We would recommend that you give our Full Body Cleanse a try. It will help you lose additional weight and rejuvenate your body. Once completed, try the Fertility Kit, which is a 20 Day program and regimen that consists of herbs, elixirs, affirmations, inhaler, and dietary program to help naturally enhance fertility.

    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.

    A:

    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.

    Q: I wrote to you a couple weeks ago asking if it was normal for me to have an outbreak only a day or two into the full body cleanse kit. You wrote back and told me that an outbreak is the body healing. It is two weeks later and I am still having an outbreak! Is this a good sign? Do you think this outbreak may continue on through my anti viral kit? I have been eating mostly fruits and vegetables, however I felt like I needed more substance and I was not enjoying my food at all... so I bought organic noodles and organic tomato sauce (sea salt only, tomatoes, no sugar, you get the point). Is adding some of this into my diet going to make the kits less effective or possibly not work?

    A:

    The outbreak is a result of your body trying to eliminate the toxicity and impurities from your body. Continue to follow the guidelines of the Cleanse.

    In regards to what you ate, YES, they make the cleanse less effective, so you may not want to eat much of cooked foods. Raw foods will optimize the cleanse. If you are having trouble staying full, try more healthy fats, like avocado, coconut cream, or raw nuts and seeds.

    Q: I read most of your articles. Love them. What you say is 100% correct. See for me. I believe that God has put me here for a reason. I have been blessed with the ability to for see things and when I think about something hard enough BAM!! I think of someone and they show up, so in regards to my current situation YES. I did have a hand in this. I keep thinking of not wanting to get HIV. Didn’t want to hear about or talk about it. Then two months before getting my initial test. It was on my mind. Then I got a physical and I was like no going to take this test but went ahead anyway and here we are. Do I believe in it? Not anymore. I now believe in blood toxicity. I am not freaking out about outbreaks because I don't have any. What I want is to know how to shape my mind. Do I need Chakra balance? What can I do to stop the thoughts? How do I reverse my mind to stop thinking on things. I try so hard to see happy things and feel happy thoughts. BTW in Jan I thought about a cold sore and it appeared.

    A:

    Thanks for explaining all that! I think the MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL is right up your alley, Beloved. It'll be up next week. So glad you enjoy my articles, Beloved! You are a powerful person and you will be dangerous (in a good way) when you learn the power of your mind. Peace and Love!

    Q: I am so impressed with your website and the level of great information you provide. The product list is very impressive as well. I have High Blood Pressure and have been on medication for a little over five years. I am 5'8" tall 167lbs. I'm in pretty good shape. I don't understand why I have HBP. I know I want to be off the meds. I feel really tired when I try to exercise. (I mean really tired) I notice there is constant congestion and post nasal drip. I'm usually going to the bathroom to urinate 4 or 5 times every night. So, I want to accomplish a couple of things. 1. I want my energy level back so that I can get back into the gym build my body again. 2. I want to get off these meds. I've been thinking about doing the FULL BODY DETOX but I read where some people were having real pain. I'm concerned that if the pain is too bad my blood pressure will go up.

    A:

    Thank you, Beloved! Glad you like the website! I would recommend that you first perform the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD). Drink ginseng tea too while detoxing! Consult with our "HERBAL CHART" for products to take for any diseases you may be dealing with. Again, begin the FBD right away to reclaim your health. The meds are only killing you slowly but surely. You can heal, Beloved!

    Q: How are you? I see you will be in the Atlanta area soon. Anywho... I finished both Detoxes. waiting on the results from the test. I am doing maintenance now. Being that I am a single mom this healing process has been hard finically. But it is well worth it. I bought the ANTI-VIRAL FORMULA (taking 3x per day), I bought the RAINFOREST TONIC TEA ( wow) and I couldn't afford the immune booster so I am taking a store brand. So..here is what I am feeling now. Lower back still has a discomfort, I little piece of my heel is still numb and the slightest noise makes me jump. I wanted to know if the nerve pills will help with the jumping and also my back. I am taking the sulper for the lower back discomfort but not a major difference yet. Also as I am typing this note to you..my left arm feels like a burning feeling. When I rub it I feel the sensation. Do I need to get the iron pills or blood & lym. pills? I hope to hear from you soon.

    A:

    I'd recommend NERVES FORMULA as well as CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM FORMULA. Consider seeing a chiropractic as well. If you can't afford capsules, consider drinking the herbal teas.

    Q: You are absolutely right. I just read this e-mail but went to the market earlier and really had to look at myself. I have more money on my feet than I wanted to spend on what I put into myself. I am happy that I made that distinction and choose organic. Money is no option when it comes to my health anymore. Thanks for keeping it real. That?s exactly what I need! Today is my first day and I am extremely excited about living a different life. Ok, I'm ready to cleanse...again. I've decided to focus on cultivating my feminine self so I've purchased your Female Cleanse as a start. I have one question though. I was wondering if adding 15 minute sunbathing to the cleanse would be helpful? The sun appears to be quite healing so I thought it may complement the cleanse. Also, would it be unwise to start the cleanse if one is on their cycle?

    A:

    Sunbathing won't hurt your cleanse. Not at all! And no, being on your menses also won't hurt or impair your cleanse.

    Q: I have a 13 year Rottweiler who is having a lot of trouble with his hind legs. A couple of weeks ago he slipped and fell, and couldn't walk because he couldn't put any weight on his back legs. I took him to the vet and they did an x-ray that showed that he had 2 herniated discs in his spine which were cutting of the nerves to his back legs. They said surgery is not an option for a dog of that size and age so they gave him a steroid shot and medication to give to him every day, and said if that didn't work I should probably put him down. Luckily the medication worked because he's up and about. His back legs are still a little weak but he does get up and move around pretty decent when he needs to. My question is if any of the pet products you have will help. I know the medication the vet gave is only a temporary solution and the vet told me that this is expected for a big dog at this age, but I would appreciate your input.

    A:

    I recommend the following formula: CAT AND DOG JOINT, BONE, AND CARTILAGE FORMULA

    Q: Dear Yogi, I read an article on your site about reverse Kundalini (anal sex). I don't know if you can answer my question or not - originally I was going to pose it to "Ask the Guru", but in my limited understanding, Kundalini is tied into yoga. I have been trying to get balanced by meditating, living my passions, writing, art, and belly dancing all unprofessionally, except for the first one (on a very small scale). I have been doing guided chakra meditations and other things, including yoga, and some dietary modifications. I feel I am gradually growing and living my purpose. However, incrementally starting in my mid forties. Anyway, I have been on this path for a couple of years now, and have more happiness and peace than I ever have. I don't want to get into a lengthy essay about my limited understanding of Kundalini, and the possibility of what I perceive is going on with my body (though I am very healthy) right now, so I will attempt to get to the point. I am grateful for my life. I have much more than many people if I were to measure. I feel like I am still blocked, though. About three years ago I dated a guy who sodomized me one time. He was a rapist, long story short and an error in judgement on my part. Though my intuition was screaming at me the whole time. I look at the experience as pushing me further along my path and teaching me to trust, love, respect myself, and defend my boundaries. What concerns me is that I feel that experience is still trapped within me to a degree, and I am worried that it will manifest into a disease. Often when I meditate on my root chakra I start crying. Part of me believes that I can't force anything, just have to let the process unfold in its own time. There is so much info out there that I find it overwhelming, and it is hard to know which to trust. So I have just been going with what resonates with me as far as technique. If you could offer me any advice, I would be grateful.

    A:

    Hello, I would like to first thank you for sharing your story and your experience. It sounds like you are devoting time and attention to the many things, that will help foster a sustained health and healing for you in life. As you have recognized, it is very helpful for us to take intuition very seriously and to honor this innate ability to discern whether a situation will be harmful or beneficial to our growth and experience as humans. Very often the circumstances and challenges presented to us in life, as happened in yours, serve as great teachers in allowing us to witness our own great strength, compassion, and value. I am glad to hear that you have been able to take the very difficult situation you found yourself in and use your experience to create a better understanding of yourself in the process. While it is true that we tend to develop patterns of holding and habitual ways of holding tension within the body; this does not mean that there are not steps you can take to move through such a body, mind, and spirit experience. The fact that you are crying upon meditating on your root chakra is a sign that you have made yourself available to the grief that naturally accompanies traumatic situations such as the one you experienced. Keep in mind that when we deeply grieve, our bodies are able to express the energy that may have potentially been repressed during this experience. The energy of the root chakra is all about our ability to feel safe, strong, and supported. The violation of this energy can leave one feeling ungrounded and striving for our self-preservation. Try not to become fixated on the worries you are having about the experience arising as disease in your body, as worrying can lead to increased levels of chronic stress, which will potentially create an internal environment more vulnerable to disease - which is what you are trying to avoid. It might be nice for you to meditate on your right to be here, to exist on this planet, and to be valued. It may also be very nice for you to take some restorative yoga classes, which can be grounding and stimulating to the parasympathetic nervous system (assists in the healing process). Recognize that the body may be holding energy in a direct response to a real threat, but begin to create a safe, loving and supportive environment to allow yourself to begin to be able to let go of this holding as you feel safe. When working to heal the first chakra, it is helpful to get in touch with the direct experience of the sensations of the body and become aware of the physical experience of the body. This can be done with the assistance of an expert, to help you change the physical expression of your felt experience. We could also do something called "body dialogue" to put you more deeply in touch with what the physical expression you are experiencing has to teach you about how you are inhabiting the world you are in. There are also many forms of grounding exercises which can help to balance the first chakra. If you are interested in being lead through a series of guided meditations, please contact me at megan@ritualwellbeing.com. Namaste, Megan

    Q: I purchased the FULL BODY DETOX two months ago and the first day I took the first 5 pills at 7am (Blood and Lymphatic) and at 8am I was vomiting all over the place at work. I was so weak I couldn't function someone from work had to drive me home and that whole day I was sick as a dog as if I had stomach virus or the flu. I had diarrhea at the same time. I want to know if this was a normal reaction to the herbs. I only took 5 I couldn't imagine how the rest of my day would have went had I taken the full 30 pills a day (which I didn't know I had to take until I received the package that wasn't indicated on the website that I had to take 30 pills a day). Was this reaction normal? Please someone let me know if it is safe to continue the product. I couldn't send the product back because of course it had been open so since I paid 120.00 for it I would like to see if it's really what everyone says about it. I don't want to let anyone else know about the product after what happened to me. I have read the reviews and all are great no one has experienced what I've went through so far. Your response to this matter is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    A:

    Beloved, you are experiencing the â€HEALING CRISISâ€. Read the article Beloved, you are just very TOXIC, that's all! Don't measure yourself against others for every body is literally different. Don't fault the product! fault your diet and lifestyle over the years. This healing crisis may seem strange to you, but in reality, your body is thanking you. The vomiting and diarrhea are signs that your body is eliminating in the only available channels open right now. Simply start off by taking 2 or 3 capsules and see how that goes. You should be fine. Then you can work yourself back up to 5 capsules if you desire. You are free to change things up to your desire that benefits. Beloved, you are on your way to the cleansing of a lifetime. This is a good sign because your body is greatly working. Your are sensitive to herbs which is a good thing. They are working immediately in your body. You'll receive a complimentary check in phone call tomorrow for Dherbs! All is well, Beloved! Don't quit! When the going gets rough, the rough gets going! Check out our â€DETOX TROUBLESHOOTING†and look up "vomiting", "diarrhea", etc. There is plenty of support for you!

    Q: I re-read your Money, Abundance Manual the other night and had a couple of points I needed clarification on. 1.The Feng Shui of the home. You gave a description of a room as it relates to different things (i.e. right center = children and creativity), What does that mean? Are you referring to pictures, memorabilia of children and creativity? 2. On one page you stated for aquariums and fountains to be placed in the front center of a room, and then on another page you said it should be placed in the left rear corner?

    A:

    1. You gave a description of a room as it relates to different things (i.e. right center = children and creativity)But what does that mean?

    ANSWER:
    It only means the energy is conducive (supportive) to these things according to the feng shui custom. That's all!
    2. On one page you stated for aquariums and fountains to be placed in the front center of a room and then on another page you said it should be placed in the left rear corner?

    ANSWER:
    It varies according to the goal, Beloved. Sometimes it's more beneficial to have it in the front and other times in the back, depending on the goal.

    Beloved, it sounds like your back is against the wall with pressure from other people directing your life. Are you bending over backwards to try and please everybody? Pain is the absent of pleasure. Sounds like you are missing pleasure in your life.

    Unfortunately, I know of no doctors outside of California, my home state. Try contacting Karyn Calabrese. Do a Google search on her name and you should be able to get her contact info. She owns 2 restaurants in the Chicago area. She's an alternative health practitioner. I've been to her spot in Chicago.

    Q: My aunt keeps returning to the emergency room because she can't breath. Each time I try to get her started on herbs (she's a diabetic, now on dialysis because a medication ruined her kidney - she wouldn't listen to me about herbs over the years) she somehow ends up in the hospital because she can't breath. I don't believe that it's the herbs (the four you recommend for diabetics). What can I do to help her clear up this problem so she won't end up at the hospital again? I'm afraid that she is going to blame it on the herbs, and she won't want to try anything anymore after today.

    A:

    Flush her out with plenty of water. Have her drink herbal tea of Mullein Leaf, Boneset, and/or Fenugreek. You know, it sounds like the medication has really attacked her lungs. Also sounds like her eliminative channels are very, very weak! She should eat only raw fruits and vegetables and consume herbal tea to remove the obstruction that is preventing her from breathing. You know, Beloved, if she is afraid of herbs and not drugs she has the wrong mindset. Fear is negative and shuts down healing. Sometimes, there's only so much you can do to help a person. Some people have made up minds that they can't or won't heal and so there's really nothing you can do to help them.

    Q: My friend who recommended the full body cleanse said I should contact you. I'm getting very bad reactions to the charcoal powder. Both productive and dry heaves, stomach cramping (VERY painful) and diarrhea. Every 20 minutes I'm in the bathroom. Take powder at approx. 10pm and from midnight to approx. 4am this goes on. I'm physically drained and called in sick to work today (I almost never do this). Also important, this month is my 2 year anniversary of my last chemo treatment. I had stage 3 Hodgkin?s Lymphoma and underwent the ABVD cocktail over 8 months. I've only had a banana this morning and a piece of watermelon this afternoon - I don't really want to eat. What should I take to get my energy back?

    A:

    Abstain from taking the charcoal for about a week and then reintroduce the Full Body Cleanse.

    To regain energy, your body needs more fuel. Eat some avocado, or raw nuts or seeds, or make a big salad to give your body the nutrients it needs to operate properly.

    Q: I am a marathon runner, swimmer, and part time student. For my Entire Life since age 13 1/2, I?ve had either anorexia or bulimia, sometimes a bit of both. I am now 41. Yes, my teeth are hurting. Yes, I realize this is supposedly not optimal health, but I suppose my life has been so stressful for such a long time, that my eating 'disorder'edness has just been the coping mechanism that has kept me sane. Thing is, I realize I want to live a long, healthy life, and I need help. My thought is that a cleanse of some sort of toxins might really help me. Would you have any herbs to offer I could do that with, say, in tea form? Or any other sage. I really seriously hope you respond because I need help.

    A:

    The Full Body Cleanse will greatly help your body to remove toxins.

    One of our teas you will want to drink daily is the Detox Tea, along with a number of other teas. Please check our online store for a full list.
