Day Three of my FBC

Yesterday was very difficult for me. My head was hurting so much that I could not really concentrate. I found out that my body was detoxing from aspartame and caffeine. On Sunday I had a cappuccino and a diet coke and I started my cleanse on Monday. That was a bad idea. Today is my third day and my headache is still there but not as bad as yesterday. I am still holding on.

    Q: I just receive my order yesterday (9/15/08) I started today which is 9/16/08. I know I can drink green tea but can I put splenda in it or do I have to drink it plain? I know I can eat fruit in the morning for breakfast can it be like 2 oranges and that's all?

    A:

    Splenda is not to be consumed while on the cleanses. It's an artificial sugar that isn't good for the body. The only sweeteners that you can consume are stevia. maple syrup grade b and agave nectar. You can eat as much fruit as you want when you want.

    Q: I started my full body detox program yesterday and this morning I stopped into Jamba Juice to get a wheatgrass shot. I also got a pomegranate juice, strawberry, peach and mango drink with a mega green tea boost...I drank maybe about 4 oz of the drink and trashed it. I had the worst headache I've ever experienced in my life! Was it from the sugar in the juice? They claim to be all-natural or was it from the fasting? Would you recommend this establishment for those seeking to get their body clean?

    A:

    It's best to stay on raw fruit and vegetable juices during your detox. Or, try some of the recipes for smoothies, vegetable juice, and delicious herbal teas mentioned and listed in the Full Body Detox Companion ($20)

    Q: I received my TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE and started it yesterday (thank you for prompt delivery). I noticed that the white specks I was passing with the FULL BODY DETOX are even bigger pieces with the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. I'm assuming this is still yeast coming out. The first day I started I didn't go at all which is unusual for me but today I went 4 times. The fourth round looked like dark green spinach. Is this from the color of the Colon capsules or is it old matter passing? The magnet in the woman’s cleanse, broke my neck out. I've always had issue with certain metals. Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

    A:

    YOU ARE PASSING OLD FECAL MATTER. GREEN STOOLS DENOTE ACID STUFF EATEN IN THE PAST, WHICH CAUSED BITTER GALL TO BE RELEASED IN THE COLON. THIS IS WHY THE MATTER IS DARK GREEN. STILL SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE PASSING YEAST SUBSTANCES TOO - A GOOD SIGN. IF THE MAGNET BROKE YOUR NECK OUT, DISCONTINUE USE OF IT. YOU CAN MAKE IT WITHOUT THE MAGNET.

    Q: I started my FULL BODY DETOX yesterday and so far so good. I have been reading books off of the book list you provided in the ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL. I really have great expectations for this detox. Anyway to my question since I have started the detox I can actually feel my organ (I am assuming) moving around. It almost feel like the motion of a child but I know I am not pregnant (hubby had a vasectomy) and plus the sensation is up too high. Have you experienced this yourself or know some else that has experienced this. I have to admit that I have not drank the daily recommended amount of water I am suppose to but I have been eating raw foods and drinking herbal teas.

    A:

    People experience all kinds of things but most report their overall experience, not beginning ones. At this point I don't know what the case could be. Just trust in the healing process and take notes of your daily experiences. This is how you learn about your body. Good luck on your cleanse!

    Q: I was at the doctor's yesterday he told me that my left testicle looks as it fluid is draining into it. The name he called it started with an H. He of course recommended outpatient surgery for this. What can I do to reverse this? It doesn't hurt, and when I noticed that my testicle seemed larger, I thought I was growing not that there was any problem going on.

    A:

    PERFORM THE TOTAL MALE CLEANSE, TAKE HOT SOAKS, DON'T FOCUS ON THE MATTER, AND GET PLENTY OF REST (ABSTAIN FROM SEX).

    Q: I finished my FBD yesterday. Is it normal for people who have done detox hard to eat food I used to eat? I mean meat, fish, etc...I don't have that much appetite somehow. Is this normal? I am thinking about doing Female Cleanse in a week or so...My question is how many time do I need to cleanse my body? I understand it is depend on person but I need to find out.

    A:

    We would recommend to incorporate as many of the raw foods you ate during your cleanse into your diet post-cleanse. Try to find a balance with healthy, nutrient-dense foods.

    A person can detox 2-4 times per year to cleanse their bodies of any impurities acquired due to lifestyle and environmental factors.

    Q: I started the full body detox today, and found that I DO NOT like the salad dressing I made with the olive oil, apple cider vinegar and lemon juice. I found I could not tolerate it on my salad. What can I do instead? Another question is... I noticed lentils on the food combining chart. Those have to be cooked. Are those actually allowed to be consumed warm? I love the raw fruits and vegetables. I don?t have a problem, cause I love salads. I just need help on what I can have on it.

    A:

    Check out our website for raw salad dressing recipes. You are bound to find one you like.

    As for lentils, you are NOT allowed to have them while on the cleanse.

    Q: I just sent you an email yesterday regarding my husband, but I am sending this one because I have read through a lot of your articles and one thing that I didn't see was your outlook about smoking weed. How do you feel about smoking weed? I mean isn't it suppose to be an herb and if it is smoked through a bong as oppose to blunt paper isn't weed healthy? Please forgive my ignorance.

    A:

    Please read our article THE BLUNT FACTS OF MARIJUANA. The substance is banned by your government so why take the risk? Why not just meditate or work with crystals or yoga? No herb should be smoked. You're putting fire to it, which changes the molecular structure of the thing being burned.

    Q: Yesterday, my 6 year old son 'accidentally' swallowed a set of magnets 3/4 length (curved) and very thin from his father's magnetic kit. Should I be alarmed and when and if should I expect him to 'pass it out'? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    A:

    No need to panic, Beloved! The human body is magnetic itself. The magnets should pass via his intestines. When? Of course I can't tell you for sure but just know that they will pass. Nothing to worry about!

    Q: I was cleaning my place yesterday and shortly after, I noticed small itchy red bumps all over my body mainly arms, shoulders, back. After doing some research, I came to the conclusion that it might be dust mites (I have a long-haired cat that sheds a lot). What can I do to treat the bumps (I don't want any scaring) Is there an alternative to soaking in a tub (I'm renting a condo and I don't feel that soaking in someone else's tub is sanitary). Also, how can I prevent them?

    A:

    BY ALL MEANS - DETOXIFY YOUR BODY! PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX AND USE A GOOD SALVE OR OIL (I.E. OZ OIL) EXTERNALLY. AND "NO" YOU DON'T HAVE TO PERFORM THE SOAK. YOU PREVENT DUST MITES BY GOOD HOME CLEANING (ALMOST DAILY), USING CERTAIN PRODUCTS (VISIT GAIA.COM FOR PRODUCTS), AND AIR FILTERING (PREFERABLY OZONE).

    Q: I had an appointment yesterday with my Pulmonoligist regarding a follow-up CT Scan on my chest. On that CT scan, it was discovered I had (2) lung masses in the right upper lobe closely associated with the suprahilar region, which apparently wasn't there 4 months ago with I had a previous CT scan. The 2nd mass also in same area extends into the mediastinum & most likely represents a malignant bronchogenic neoplasm. A PET scan has been recommended & the doctor immediately sent me to a Thoracic surgeon to discuss surgery options. I've been reading your articles on Cancer & Healing and you talk about using supplements/herbs, etc. In that article you mention at least 20 or so herbs. In your store, do you have and formulas that would combine a lot of these & if so what would you recommend in my place. It goes without saying that I am very frightened right now because I have read like so many others that Lung Cancer is pretty much incurable. Of course I have to go for the PET scan, bone scan to make sure of what the Radiologist found but the Pulmonoligist didn't offer very positive outcome.

    A:

    Please perform our FULL BODY CLEANSE for 20 days. Also, drink our RAINFORST TEA while doing the cleanse. The cleanse will help eliminate toxins in your body that are affecting your health.

    After you detox, take 5 capsules of ELECTRIC GREENS 5-6 times per day, every day.

    Abstain from eating any meat, dairy, etc. Choose raw foods in order to assist your body in expelling waste and negative byproducts.

    Q: Hello, this is my 2nd time doing the full body cleanse. I did it last year so now I'm doing it again. I started on Monday 3/9 and since have lost 5 lbs. Is that normal? Also why do you recommend Distilled water and not Spring and/or filtered (Brita). I have always drank a lot of water but roughly how many times a day should I urinate and how many times a day should I make a BM? When I did it the first time last year it was late Spring early Summer and incorporated a lot of walking which helped out a lot. This time not so much due to the horrible NY weather. I would appreciate you answering my questions and getting back to me at your earliest convenience. Thanks

    A: Everyone's body is different and responds to the regimen differently. Losing 5 pounds in days is okay. Distilled water is the best type of water that helps to detox the body. You should be drinking half your body weight in water. Anything you put into your body you can expect it to come out. Bowel movements and urination is directly related to the foods and beverages you're consuming. Be sure that you're consuming three regular meals a day; eating fruits and vegetables with fiber.

    Q: For the past week or so, I've been having short instances of feeling drunk, and I haven't had an alcoholic beverage in several months. It's similar to deja vu but more like a feeling of brief intoxication. I started the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE yesterday and I'm on day 2. It seems the frequency has increased throughout the day. Do you know what may be causing this?

    A:

    We'd need to conduct an interview for me to get to the root of the matter. Consider a consultation. After your TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSEit would be in your best interest to perform the FULL BODY DETOX to reboot your system. You're off somewhere in your body.

    Q: Today makes day 9 of my FULL BODY DETOX (FBD). This morning I have an outbreak on my hand. I have been practicing telling myself I am Healing, but my job is stressful and yesterday I had a stressful day and this morning the outbreak on my right hand. Could this be part of my healing process? Can you suggest what I can do to alleviate the stress at work so this will not block my healing process of herpes? I am following the diet; however I have been kind of burnt out at times on the salads so I at least eat a salad and a bowl of steamed brown rice and frozen green peas that are steamed for 3 min. Is that considered following the diet? I still eat my fruit for breakfast daily, my salad for lunch and steamed broccoli (5min) and for dinner another salad, but for a few days I have eaten the rice and steam green peas. I basically want to know is it alright so if I eat it in the future.

    A:

    You have to learn to deal with your stress and stop reacting to it. Your subconscious mind is greatly blocked and therefore you have to realize your healing will come very slow. At a deep level you still believe herpes is incurable and your body is giving you this (despite the healing crisis of outbreaks on the hand). Your dietary deviation is understandable and not that bad but if you are tiring of salads opt for other things to eat. We list a few raw foods alternative recipes in our "ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL" e-book available for download. Check it out!

    Q: Hey herbalist, so I have been doing a lot of research on caffeine, and the benefits and harms of it. I am looking for some added information about the differences between the caffeine found naturally in coffee or tea, and the kind found in pure caffeine pills. I have heard that the pills are much more harmful, but have not been able to find proof of why. With the exception of "its made in a lab, therefore it must be worse". If you could shed some light on the matter, I would greatly appreciate it! Just one more question. I have read that caffeine blocks the re-uptake of glutamate. This can cause glutamate toxicity (resulting in dead brain cells), but I am skeptical as to how often this occurs. Will that happen if one takes just 200-mg of caffeine? Is it for the chronic caffeine users who drink 6 cups of coffee a day for 10 years? Thanks so much for your time and effort! looking forward to some knowledge!

    A:

    Nature does not make caffeine or any substance in mono-structured form, including caffeine. Caffeine consumed by itself is harmful (a la caffeine pills -- nature does not produce caffeine pills). Caffeine pills are INORGANIC and thus not absorbed by the body (the cells). Bio-caffeiene from plant sources is ORGANIC and thus absorbable. Organic substances can be absorbed through the cells. Inorganic substances cannot. Inorganic caffeine blocks reuptake of glutamate, and that's another reason why synthetic caffeine is harmful. Organic caffeine does not block reuptake of glutamate.
