Day 5–Magic food

Day 5–Magic food

A friend of mine invited me over to his new house tonight after
practice to watch the playoff game between Dallas and the Spurs. He
has been inviting me over to see his new place since March, so I felt
compelled to go. I felt very conflicted because I was very hungry and
didn’t know how long I could make it without something to eat, but
went anyway. Well, magically, after sitting down for about 5 minutes
a platter of fresh vegetables and nuts appeared in front of me. I
couldn’t have ordered it any better myself. Carrots, snow peas,
broccoli, a raw food feast. As I looked around his new house I
realized that I myself was building a new house for my body and being
in his house was symbolic of the on-going changes within me. His
house is beautiful by the way.

    Q: Members of my house have started drinking Hemp Milk and Rice Milk. No more Cow Milk! We like the taste of both. I also like the fact that the hemp milk has omega and other nutrients in it. However, my son is three years old and we have discovered he is allergic to nuts because a family member gave him a cashew to eat, then his eyes began to swell up like Garfield the cat. I had him tested for food allergies and the test revealed he is allergic to nuts and soy. So I don't give him any nut products or soy products. My question for you is: "Is hemp a nut or a seed, is the hemp milk derived from a nut or a seed???" I need to know other alternatives if in fact it is a nut. I do not want to give him something toxic to him.

    A:

    Hemp is a seed, not a nut, so hemp seed milk is okay for him.

    Nuts cashews - peanuts, soy

    Grains - rice, oats

    Fruit - almond, coconut, banana, date

    Hey, I'll do an article that will be up on Dherbs early next week!

    Q: How Do I Get Rid of A Negative Entity (Spirit) in my House?

    A:

    Kindly but firmly request or demand that the entity leave your home. Tell the spirit it is not invited and you do not wish its presence to remain in your home. Strike singing bowls (quartz made) or Tibetan bowls daily. Burn incense of Sage, Dragon's Blood, Myrrh, or White Copal of which help to banish negative spirits and forces. You can also burn essential oils of Niaouli, Sandalwood, Chamomile (Yellow or Roman), and Myrrh in a diffuser. Saturate your home with black and/or brown crystals, i.e. Black Tourmaline, Onyx, Dravitz, Jet, Black Obsidian, Smokey Quartz, etc. Also say positive affirmations throughout the day. Summons your angels to protect you and to assist you in getting the negative entity to leave your home. Ask the Universe to send you to someone or for someone to come to you to help you (if you are having difficulty locating a qualified spiritualist in your city or town).

    Q: I'm having a little hard time building a relationship with my lady's 6 year-old daughter. She's sweet, the only child (for now), and has her father in her life. I don't want to be her dad, but I do want her to respect me. I intend to marry this lady, and I will be the father figure in our house.

    Just focus on things you appreciate about the child. Stop judging her relationship with her mother. Find a perspective about her that feels good. Respect her, and give her space to warm up to you at her own pace. It will happen

    Q: I am on day 5 of the FULL BODY DETOX. I have severe eczema and I re-read the instructions last night. After steaming am I to use food grade hydrogen peroxide on my face or regular store bought hydrogen peroxide? Should I expect it to burn? Also, I haven't been putting on lotion because the lotions in my house have lots of chemicals. I tried Olive Oil but it makes me itch. Do you have any suggestions for a natural moisturizer?

    A:

    Don't use hydrogen peroxide daily. When you do use it, pat it on your face with a cotton ball. Use it ever other day, not daily. Use 3% HP not 35% food grade! 35% FGHP will burn your face.

    Q: Two months ago I used your Full Body Detox, and got fabulous results. I also did The Total Woman Cleanse three weeks after the detox, and got fabulous results from both products. My family, and I have been vegan for the past eight months, and before that vegetarians. Now, I am still experiencing pimples, and some fungi which looks like a kind of wring worms, but much smaller apparing on my body. Not just mine, but other members of the family as well. I gave the children, and my husband their Full Body Detox, as well, and I have even bought the Oz Oil to treat this. I really don't know what to do right now, this stuff is spreading on my body, but I have a very possive attitude with it still. I thank God that I am richer in color (meaning very dark) that one can't really see spots after they have dried up. But, I should also tell you that Bermuda is a very moldy place to live! One has to contantly stay cleaning washing, and airing out the house out.

    A:

    Start performing the "Sea Salt Soak" (read our article by the same title in our articles section). Perform daily if you can! I'd also recommend you alternate between the Oz Oil, and the Healing Skin Oil. Read the article "Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder." Continue to stay positive! Consider reading "The Mental Science Manual." (highly recommended)

    Q: I am 18 years old and was diagnosed with genital herpes in March 2007. Four months before that till present I have been suffering with a vaginal odor problem. No matter how I shower and clean, after a half an hour my vagina would have this fishy like odor that you could smell through my clothes. When I am on my menstrual the smell is even stronger and embarrassing because no matter what I do I cannot hide the odor. Before my first breakout with herpes I went to the doctor about the smell and my pap smear didn't show any signs of an infection to explain the smell. After being diagnosed with genital herpes I went back to the doctors to find out what I could do about the embarrassing odor. I was even tested for bacterial vagenosis but did not have it. The doctor said the smell could just be symptoms of a break out coming on. They gave me acyclovir pills and sent me home. Not to mention the pills did not help one bit with my breakouts or odor. I don’t know what to do anymore.... I’m tired of locking myself in the house because of my odor and my painful breakouts. Please help....

    A:

    BELOVED, HAVE YOU READ OUR "GENITAL HERPES" ARTICLE YET? IF NOT, YOU SHOULD. I BELIEVE IT WILL OPEN YOUR EYES. DRUGS WILL NEVER HELP YOU! NEVER! THE BODY CANNOT ASSIMILATE THEM. I'D RECOMMEND THAT YOU PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX FOLLOWED BY THE ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. PERFORM THESE TWO FOR STARTERS. BASICALLY, YOU HAVE TO PREPARE FOR A FULL LIFE CHANGE.

    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: If I detoxify my body and within that month I happen to inhale cleaning products while Cleaning my house or wear perfumes daily will it defeat the purpose of the detox?

    A:

    A little! What you inhale goes into your body via your bloodstream. Why not wear natural scents (i.e. essential oils)? Why not clean with natural household supplies brands such as Seventh Generation, Dr. Bronner, Earth Balance, Bon Ami, etc.? We list alternative cleaning brands in our ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL (e-book) available on-line.

    Q: My problem is after I've eaten, whether I've slipped and had a sandwich or something not raw, or whether I've had all raw vegetables - especially broccoli or cauliflower, I am clearing my throat for pretty much the rest of the day. If I'm munching on raw nuts and seeds - same thing. It feels almost like I didn't swallow fully, or like the food didn't go down all the way or something. It's annoying to me, and I know it's irritating to my co-workers. What herb can help with this? It's mucus, right? I am currently doing the weight release cleanse. I've already done the FULL BODY DETOX (I failed miserably at this.)

    A:

    There is no such thing as failure! Start drinking more water and try drinking MUCUS BUSTER TEA while performing your cleanse. Stay positive!

    Q: I am on my 3rd day of the fully body cleansing. I am definitely doing this to lose weight. I am a 52 year old, black, Christian, wife, mother to 21 and 14 year old girls, legal secretary who is 450 lbs. I am to the point now where if I don't do this I'm going to be housebound. I can barely move some days that is why I started this because I feel so unhealthy. I have a question about the nuts. I got all gun-ho and ordered $135.00 worth of organic nuts from nuts.com. I got raisins, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachios and cashews and mixed them all up together (well I purchased 2 lbs of each but I only mixed up 1 lb of each together). Anyway, I was reading about how much calories are in nuts. Should I not pay attention to that because I was consuming a lot of calories in the first place or do I have to watch how many nuts I eat? I have put some nuts in a sandwich bags and basically filled it up and that is supposed to be my nuts ration for the day. I am also eating fruits and vegetables. So far the fruit have been grapes, grapefruit, red apples, pears, green apples and bananas. The vegetables have all been in a salad: tomatoes, celery spinach leaves, carrots, mixed in balsamic vinaigrette. I only ate the salad Monday night all the other times I have just eaten the fruit and nuts. I am also consuming approximately 75-100 oz of water. Sorry I’m long winded I just wanted you to get the entire picture.

    A:

    Thanks for the question, I can definitely help you.

     

    I am currently writing an eBook for www.dherbs.com called "Losing weight the healthy way." I have been a weight loss counselor for many years. I am also a health coach, personal trainer, bodymind nutritionist, and a vegan lifestyle coach. 

     

    When it comes to weight loss most programs want you to lose weight to get healthy. My mindset is to get healthy and lose weight. 

     

    In my health/fitness/nutrition coaching program www.theveganeffect.com I use a lowfat/high carb/ high raw/ nutrient dense/ high alkaline diet to achieve long term weight loss success. So far I am 100 percent in getting clients long lasting weight loss. If you are interested in my program please fill out the health history form on the side of the web page. We could have a free 1 hour initial consultation over skype to see how I can best help you.

     

    Nuts are best kept to a minimum if you use them at all. Nuts are extremely high in fat and have the opposite omega 3- omega 6 ratio that is optimal for health. Seeds are best as far as ratios are concerned. Also nuts are truly easy to over eat and cause your nutrient ratios to be off.

     

    A healthy vegan diet is a high raw fruitarian diet. 

    Example:

    Breakfast: green smoothie. (500-1000 calories of fruits blended with a handful of greens and water)

    Bridge: Dates and strawberries (500 calories) 

    Lunch: Salad with low sugar fruits (cucumber, tomato, squash, bell peppers) topped with fruit, beans, psuedo grains, 

    Bridge: 2-3 apples

    Dinner: Raw wraps (collard greens) with low sugar fruit and tahini

    Snack: Sorbet

     

    Hope this helps

    Q: I am a beginner Holistic practitioner. My son who just turned 24 is addicted to pain medication. He started with Vicodin when he was 17 now he is taking OxyContn and Methadone. He said he is ready to get off now, because he sees how it is destroying his life. I know getting off of this type of medication is very hard on the person who will be Detoxing. I really don't want to put him in a in-house detox center, nor do we have the finances to do so. So, I want to have him come stay with me for however long it takes to get him detox. But I want to give him what he needs to lessen the healing crises, the headaches, the other pain that is associated with this type of withdraw. I am not quite sure what to do or where to start or if it is something I should do. I feel that I can help him. But I want to be sure of this. I am thinking this is something that might require a medical physician. Please let me know if it something that can be done at home. And if so, what herbs, supplements and whole foods I should have handy to assist him on his detox process. You expertise is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    A:

    He needs the FULL BODY DETOX and should drink plenty of Licorice Root tea. He can detox at home. Let him bathe in 26-78 ounces of sea salt daily. Let him drink vegetable juice daily as well. Please schedule a health consultation so you can obtain more natural remedies for your son. $100 (for a consultation) is a lot cheaper than a detox center. Please consider!

    Q: I have used many of your products - the full body cleanse, the female cleanse, and I completed the respiratory cleanse last month. I felt great during the cleanse; when I got off of it, I didn't feel that I was eliminating as easily or consistently. I had purchased the Intestinal Cleanser and the Bowel Motion and started taking them together in the evenings, but I missed a few days due to travel. I noticed that I felt horrible during the days that I was taking it (and felt better when I was off of it).....my stomach felt bloated and cramped and I had headaches and low energy. I am wondering if the combination is too strong for me. Do you recommend taking only the Bowel Mover, or are you supposed to take both? Is it possible that I have a digestion problem? I also had purchased the Thyroid herbs. Is it okay to take those at the same time, or should I wait?

    A:

    Read our article HEALING CRISIS!

    Herbs don't cause any health problems. They help you to heal from them. You were experiencing healing crisis, which can be unpleasant; but your body doesn't care. it just wants to heal itself.

    I suggest you take these herbs at night right before you go to bed (which is the best time to do so anyway).

    And yes, you can take the Thyroid formula ... but take it in the morning!

    Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!

I HARDLY EAT PEANUTS AND I KNOW THEY ARE NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL. DO YOU RECOMMEND WALNUTS? MY FAVORITE ARE ABOVE. PLUS SHOULD I GET DISTILLED WATER? ALSO BEFORE DISCOVERING DHERBS, I PUT In A WHOLE WATER FILTRATON SYSTEM IN MY HOUSE AND I BELIEVE IT IS CONSIDERED PURIFIED WATER. IS THIS GOOD OR SHOULD I BUY BOTTLED DISTILLED WATER. I AM VERY ANXIOUS TO START DETOXING BECAUSE THIS IS THE FIRST TIME.

    A:

    Walnuts are good to eat during the Full Body Cleanse. Distilled water is the best water during the Full Body Cleanse, but your filtered water would also be okay to drink during the cleanse.
