Day 9: Flowing Day

Things we pretty simple today. My intestines and colon were happy, flowing right along:) We discovered the most incredible salad dressing from a raw foods restaurant, Juliano’s, in Santa Monica. It’s a ginger-garlic mixture that puts life and pizzazz in any salad. Wow! Makes it taste hearty, rich and extremely flavorful. I’ll want to use it even when I get off the detox.

My throat is much better today. It tickled some but most of the symptoms have subsided. With my husband, Jerome, and I both doing the detox at the same time, there is a new energy in our home. The energy feels more balanced and relaxed, perhaps because we are:) While the detox is a very physical thing, I sense it assists us to release deeply hidden and stuck places that get in our way on a spiritual/fulfillment level, and that’s what I feel. The air around us all feels lighter, fresher, more engaging. I’m glad we have another 12 days to uncover even greater balance.

    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: 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 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: Hi I am on the 5th day and I had a lunch on today. I ate shrimp spinach salad?does that affect my detox? I feel very bad.

    A: In order to achieve the best results, you should remain on a raw foods diet for the duration. However, if you slip up, get right back on track with the raw foods diet and finish the cleanse! You can receive many of the beneficial effects of the cleanse still.

    Q: I been have pain in my throat on the adams apple, and it feels like a line in there like something is out of place. Maybe it could be vein, and I can kinda feel it in the center of my chest.

    A:

    It could be a goiter (possibly). It could also be a sign that you are not expressing yourself on a higher level. As well as the throat is the site of the 5th Chakra - the seat of communication and higher expression. Are you not expressing yourself - your higher truth, your principles? Your Thyroid gland could also be communicating with you for more Iodine. Recommended Dherbs.com products include Thyroid Formula, Iodine Phosphate, Electric Greens Cell Food, and 5th Chakra Elixir.

    Q: I am about one week into the 3-week FULL BODY DETOX, and I have developed an extremely sore throat, similar to the symptoms of strep throat. The pain is fairly constant during the day and is almost unbearable in the morning when I wake up. Should I get on antibiotics to clear it up or continue the detox?

    A:

    Sore throat only means your lymphatic system is inflamed there at your throat. Gargle with warm water and sea salt and drink licorice root tea or lobelia tea. Read the article â€HEALING CRISISâ€

    Q: I am a massage therapist. During a year long detox with the help of a Naturopath I lost about 40 pounds. However, I could only lose weight while fasting. Though I recognized that I was extremely toxic (very thick, dark menses every 15 days to flu-like symptoms) it seemed that fecal matter was getting "stuck" in the bend of the trans. Colon and disc. Colon. Maintaining the weight losses and good health was difficult in spite of being on a wholesome diet. Digestive enzymes seemed to adversely affect digestion since elimination was slow (once a day). Though enzymes worked well in the stomach, I would only gain weight with the use of enzymes: drinking a gallon of water a day only touched my extreme thirst. I would become lethargic and experience painful menses. Cramps, along with swelling in the ankles. Recently a massage therapist who worked with colon massage laid hands on me and told me that my trans. colon was sitting below my belly button. His massaging in the bend of the trans. colon and the disc. Colon was very uncomfortable. We agreed that massage could help with my situation since I felt great after the massage. I take flaxseed oil, prune juice, probiotics, and cranberry juice everyday and I have been seeing a colon hydro therapist for the past five weeks (once a week) with very good results. Is there a special diet that can help pull the trans colon back into position? I really want to be able to eat wholesome foods and look and feel wholesome at the same time. Thank you for your support.

    A:

    I WOULD RECOMMEND COLON REPAIR. CONSIDER THE DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE AND IT'S CORRELATING DIET (WHICH COMES WITH THE CLEANSE) AND DRINK MUCH VEGETABLE AND FRUIT JUICE, BUT ESPECIALLY VEGETABLE JUICE. FRUITS SMOOTHIES WILL ALSO HELP REPAIR THE COLON. DRINK 2-4 OUNCES OF ALOE VERA JUICE IN A GLASS OF WATER. PERFORM ANTI-GRAVITY EXERCISES 15-MINUTES PER DAY (HAVE LEGS RAISED HIGHER THAN THE FACE - I.E. LEGS UP AGAINST THE WALL WITH HEAD AND BACK ON THE GROUND). PERFORM ENEMAS AND COLONICS AS WELL. ALL ORGANS ARE REPAIRABLE AND THEREFORE YOU CAN HEAL YOURSELF OF THIS CRISIS. PEACE, OPTIMAL HEALTH AND WELL-BEING BE UNTO YOU.

    Q: I completed the Full Body Detox, and my stomach hurts. It's feels as if, something is turning around inside, at the top portion. What could this be? It started 3 days after my cleanse, and has been going on for about 3 weeks.

    A:

    The Full Body Detox just loosened up pockets full of intestinal gas. Stay focused on your colon. Drink our Dinner Tea daily, and take Colon Formula daily (preferably at night before bed). Pour olive or coconut oil on your stomach and massage it each night. Congratulations, on completing the detox Beloved!

    Q: I'm only on the 4th day of the FULL BODY DETOX, but my sciatic nerve is really bothering me (and it was prior to me starting the detox as well), and my energy level (especially here at work) is still pretty much dragging. I know that you do not advise taking any of your other herbs while doing the detox, so do you have any suggestions for the relief of my sciatic nerve and fatigue situation?

    A:

    You could drink herbal tea during the Detox. Just don't take solid things (herbs, supplements). Try the HEADACHES TEA! Drink a few cups per day! If your sciatic nerve is bothering you while cleansing it's because the nerve is being worked on by the herbs. Let the herbs do its job. The pain won't last long. You did something in the past that brought you pleasure but damaged the nerve so now you're experiencing the flip side (pain) on your way back to balance.

    Q: I just got finished the Full Body Detox, and feeling good. But I still have the issue I was hoping the detox would take care of. I seem to have some swelling or puffiness under my ear; it seems to be the mucus gland, and or the lymph nodes by my jawbone near my ear, in the morning it always feels like there?s water in my ear. What would u suggest, I was thinking about the parasite cleanse, and I still have some sinus issues. I'm in MD and would like to get an ear coning cleaning, a foot detox, and a colonic, do u know of places in MD, or D.C.? Thanks again.

    A:

    Glad to hear your detox went well. Sounds like a lot of mucus buildup in the ear area. I suggest ear coning and lymphatic massage. Herb-wise, give the Parasite and Worm Kit and regimen a try; for sinus problems I recommend Sinus Formula and Mucus Buster. The Foot Detox and a colonic will do you wonders. However, I don't know of any places or practitioners of such therapies. However, a Dherbs resource is coming soon to help in situations like this. You may be able to get help at a natural foods store or Whole Foods Market where they have boards (message boards) where people list a lot of things.

    Q: I have always had, and continue to have this feeling in my throat. It feels as though, it were a bit inflamed. It's often, when I eat breads, perhaps it is the wheat. I suppose it's never serious enough for me to go to the doctors. What do you recommend?

    A:

    I suggest you give the Full Body Detox, followed by the Lungs and Respiratory Cleanse a try for your situation. These 2 cleanses will greatly help you.

    Q: I have completed the FULL BODY DETOX today and I have noticed that I am experiencing severe dry mouth, dry eyes and vaginal dryness which are symptoms of sjogrens syndrome. Is there anything that will help restore the moisture (I read your article about vaginal dryness and I'll be purchasing saw palmetto today)?

    A:

    This sjogrens syndrome is pure healing crisis and not caused by the noble herbs. Start taking 6-9 capsules of Saw Palmetto berry daily and increase your water consumption or intake. You'll be fine!

    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: I just finished your FULL BODY DETOX and ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN). I do feel much better however I am still having a constant discharge from my penis foreskin. Dr's who have looked at it say it is not herpes but if not then what? It has discharged since mid November and has not stopped. There is no pain associated with it directly but whenever a get tingling in my feet it feels that that as is the source of the problem. Someone told me they had tingling because of acidic body but then what about this discharge? Is it an infection? All normal STD's were negative but after hearing what the Dr's said I didn't get a blood test. Again I want to say that I think your products are fantastic and have made me much healthier. I did eat some sushi with brown rice, avocado, and kim chi after the kit and woke up the next morning with a headache and sore throat. Also I felt a throb under one of my arms which I had prior to taking the anti-viral kit. Maybe a lymph node? I had a number of raw food meals at a restaurant that used dehumidifier and nuts or seeds in most of their things and would also feel the tingling sometimes after eating this. I have read on some sites that herpes can be set off by nuts so I'm wondering. Anyway where should I go now to completely clear my body of any of these penis sensations discharges and tingling? Also I wanted to say that wow I have had a lot of mucus coming out of my body and my guess is there is probably more that wants to come.

    A:

    Your solution is not in anything external such as the kits (FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) and ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN). They only assist you. Your chronic problem means further work. Keep detoxing, eating a strict diet, etc. until the discharge goes away. Also, you are being compelled by your body to reassess and revise some things pertaining to your sexual belief system. The problem is with the penis so the underlying problem is pertaining to your sexuality. Tell you what: concentrate on your colon and reproductive system. Alternate between the FBD and the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE until you get your results. Healing requires patience! But deal with the underlying problem! What have you been doing sexually or what are your beliefs pertaining to sex? Are they healthy? You have a discharge because something (belief, thought) needs to be discharged.

    Q: I am on Day 10 of the full body detox. I have had horrible stomach aches (like a punch in the gut), that have kept me up all night, migraines and pimple-like bumps apepar on my scalp (also itch). Now I have welts on my feet, hands and one on my right knee - that are red, swollen and itch. It makes it painful to walk. Is this normal on the detox or an allergic reaction to something? When do you start feeling better because I have felt like crap, with no energy the last 5 days. I have a business trip I must make next week during week 3 of the detox. Can I stop the detox for a week, and finish week 3 later, as I can't afford to feel like I do on my trip.

    A:

    1. Read the article HEALING CRISIS on our site under "Articles."

    2. We don't advise you stop the detox, but if you must, you must.

    You are just very toxic and your body really needs this cleanse as well as future cleansing. Your symptoms state you are toxic and need to focus more on your internal heath. You diet sounds very acid-forming! Changes are needed in your life, especially in the area of diet.

    Health is wealth!

    Q: I received your email today and I was happy that I got a response so quick from your web site. I am writing because I didn't have time to really explain my story. I told you that I was diagnosed with HPV for at least five years, I miss understood the my ob-gyn, I was diagnosed with a bacteria that lead me to HPV. I received your information on how to treat it but I left something out when I emailed you, I?ve done a detox cleanser, not yours, from another company. I am also confused on what you want me to take for me and my husband, Did you meant for me to take Yoni formula, Anti-viral kit and Female Hormonal formula? Do I really need the detox kit when I already had one? Also for my husband, Does he really need that detox kit, Why cant he just get the Anti-viral Kit, Male Hormonal formula and Rainforest Tonic? I just really wanted to spend at least close to $400.00 only; I don't have that kind of income. What you advised to take is too much money? When you stated maintenance, do you mean I have to always get these medications over and over again to maintain me from getting it again? I say this because I have only been with my husband since we have got back together and I am not having sex with no else. Can you please give any other regimen; do we really need to buy the Full Body Detox Kits? Please answer me back before I have to go to my LEEP procedure, which is scheduled on 2/1/08 and I am praying to take this medications as soon as possible so I can get a second opinion and have that Biopsy done again to rule out the HPV.

    A:

    I would suggest you guys both perform Dherbs Full Body Detox. Don't confuse our kit for other kits. After the Full Body Detox, perform 3-week the Anti-Viral kit. Now if money is a factor, make your own choice and choose either the Full Body Detox or the Anti-Viral kit.

    After whatever cleanse you guys perform, you will need a maintenance regimen to perform on a daily basis. Please visit our HERBAL RECOMMENDATION CHART to learn what formulas we recommend as a maintenance regimen for a specific disease.

    Q: I started the Full Body Cleanse program on August 25th. Three days later, detox symptoms became so severe that I discontinued taking it on September 4th. However, I want to resume but feel that I need some assistance from you in terms of what might be the best way to do so in order that I can continue with my daily activities. Symptoms of most concern included: uncontrollable coughing, tightness in chest, increased blood pressure and severe headache. When I noted that the symptoms were increasing in intensity, I discontinued taking the Full Body Cleanse herbs,(after 10 days). 3 days after discontinuing the programs, the symptoms have subsided to a degree that I can continue with my daily activities. I want to resume the program but want to do so at a rate that I can function during the day and sleep at night without hours of intensive coughing. What suggestions do you have? About me: I am AA 60 Y.O. female who has been a raw vegan for the past 7 years. My doctor insists that I remain on the following medications: Levoxyl Tab 0.05 mg; Avapro 150mg; and Estradiol patch for thyroid condition, hypertension and menopause, respectively. Noteworthy, I discontinued taking all med 3 days prior to starting Full Body Cleanseand have not starting taking them again. My goal is to be free of such poisons.

    A:

    To continue the Full Body Cleanse, cut dosage from 5 capsules to 2-3 capsules. It is a very powerful cleanse. The symptoms you are experiencing is part of the healing crisis taking place. The herbal supplements are trying to counteract the toxicity in your body, and thus attempting to rid of them via one of your major eliminative channels.

    Q: For several years, I have a pins and needles feeling all over including burning. I feel light- headed frequently and feels like I would fall to the floor if I don't concentrate on keeping myself steady. I have lower back pain (center) that does not relent. My foot feels like there is current running in my feet all the time and my pinkie on my right hand feel numb. My neuro tested me for MS and it came back negative. I have been to several doctors and no one can tell me what it is or help me with my symptoms. They have resorted to calling my condition "stress". I do feel anxious most times and lack optimism. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your response.

    A:

    You are in need of a full body cleansing. I recommend you try our FULL BODY DETOX. Also, start drinking NERVES TEA (which you can drink while Detoxing).
