Good Afternoon FBC Bloggers. At the beginning of March, I started a 90 day challenge with my family across America via Facebook in an effort to help everyone get healthy. After my first month, I dropped 16 lbs. through working out 6 days a week and eating properly. I’ve always wanted to do a total body cleanse and have always heard them advertising this product on the Steve Harvey Morning Show and decided that since I had so much success after my first month, I wanted to continue to have great success. I decided to pause my challenge and do the 20 day FBC just to ensure my body was tuned up for the remaining 60 days. I still workout everyday while cleansing and I can’t tell you how much energy I have when doing so. I want to take people on this journey with me so that they can see that regular people do struggle with weight but can safely take it off with some hardwork and determination. I always tell people I meet that you didnt gain the weight overnight so its not going to come off overnight. You have to have patience and do it the right way and stay away from diet fads. God Bless to all who are embarking on this journey and good luck
Q: Thought I would let you know about my experience with Dherbs FULL BODY DETOX system. I am a healthy 33 year old woman who 5'4" 170. I changed my diet back in March in an effort to lose weight and it has been working. I heard about your product on the Russ Parr Moring show and had visited your site contemplating ordering. I consulted with my mom who is HEAVY into herbs and alternative healing. She and I read your product ingredients together and she confirmed that the listed herbs are very good cleansing agents and should be safe. I ordered a few weeks ago to assist in my weight loss but actually started the detox on Monday Sept 1st. The first day went well and I saw results immediately. The second day produced results also but almost immediately after taking the 7pm pills I had a pressure that moved around in my head. I did not hurt but it was different from anything that I have ever felt. Then my face began to tighten up and twitch. These effects lasted for about 5 minutes. The next day, Sept 3rd, I did not use the pills and was fine. This morning Sept 4th I took the 7am pills within minutes I experienced the same symptoms. After consulting my doctor and my mother I decided to cease the system because it seemed that my nerves were being affected. What do you think caused it and how do I get my money back?
I can't and won't spend a lot of time in this response because it's so common and too much information on it already exists on the site (i.e. Detox Trouble-Shooter, article "Healing Crisis" "Is This Normal?) 1. Please read the article "HEALING CRISIS". 2. Please read the article "IS THIS NORMAL?" 3. Please read "DETOX TROUBLESHOOTING" ("Twitching"). 4. Please read FAQ ("FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PAGE") near bottom of the page (which explains that there are no refunds for healing crisis symptoms). Healing crisis is POSITIVE and is a sign much needed healing and cleansing is taking place. Clearly you have damaged nerves that really needed addressing and it's taking place but your fear predicated upon ignorance is stopping the process. You experience healing crisis and panic and want to stop the healing and desire a refund. We don't refund for misunderstandings, fear, social programming, etc. Healing crisis don't last forever! Many people experience healing crisis but still stick with the program. Read some of the testimonials on the site ("TESTIMONIAL PAGE").
Q: I JUST HEARD ABOUT THE PRODUCTS THIS MORNING OF V-103 AND DECIDED TO READ ABOUT THEM. I'M VERY IMPRESSED, AS THE PRODUCTS WILL HELP MANY OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS. HOWEVER, AT TIMES I BECOME VERY NAUSEOUS. I DON'T HAVE AN APPETITE FOR ANYTHING. IN FACT I ATE 1/2 A SANDWICH THIS AM FOR BREAKFAST. BEFORE THAT I HAD NOT EATEN SINCE SATURDAY, AFTERNOON. I KNOW THIS IS UNHEALTHY, BUT THIS IS HOW I LOSE WEIGHT. HOWEVER, I'M USUALLY NOT NAUSEOUS AND HAVE SOMEWHAT OF AN APPETITE. I USUALLY DON'T HAVE AN APPETITE. ANY SUGGESTIONS. ALSO, ARE DHERB PRODUCTS GEARED TO GETTING RID OF MEAT COMPLETELY FROM OUR DIETS?
A: Even with a loss of appetite it's important for you to consume food regularly. You're experiencing nauseous because your body is indicating the need for food. To help increase your appetite we recommend trying the Healthy Appetite Supplement. Healthy Appetite - http://dherbs.com/store/healthy-appetite-p-193.html
Q: Hello, I've always heard that people can't "Spot loose" when it comes to weight, however, I've done it but don't really know what it was that cause the "spot weight" lose. My question and dilemma is: I tend to gain weight in my breast area and mid section but no where else. I am apple shaped. I know it isn't good for the heart and I want to loose mostly my breast. What would you recommend eating or not and what type of exercise would you recommend. Thank you!
Spot losing is a myth or sorts. I'm not saying it can't happen but it's highly unlikely and completely uncontrollable. Your body picks and chooses where it gains/loses weight and they are not always in the same spots. Some people gain weight proportionately and some gain it in certain spots (hips, thighs, breasts, belly). I do get asked this question a lot from women "How do I lose weight in my gut or hip area but not in my breast?". The truth is that there is no real answer for that. Your own spot loss was probably just luckiness and apararently exactly where you needed it to.
As far as eating is concerned nothing causes the body to fat more than these two things. One is a high nutrient density, high alkaline, high raw, low fat, vegan diet. The other is juice fasting. Both are extremely helpful.
Foods know and studied to cause weight loss are beans, greens, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, raw apple cider vinegar, oatmeal, and fruits and veggies. Noe of which have been conclusive in causing the body to lose fat in certain spots of the body.
I run a highly successful health, nutrition, and fitness coaching company. I have coached many people to a vast number of health goals. Weight loss is one of my specialties. My 6 month program is designed to give people all the tools they need to reach their goals. My six month program includes lessons on weight loss, juice fasting, alkalinity, meal planning and meal timing, and also comes with a 90 day fitness plan. To see if my program is right for you fill out this health form found here (http://the-vegan-effect.healthcoach.integrativenutrition.com/forms) and claim your free first consultation.
The best and most efficient exercises for weight loss are cardio exercises. That is however only part of the equation. Learning how to interval train is your most efficient way to burn fat. You may burn more fat at 60 percent of your maximum heart rate but if you interval train where you change your intensity and heart rate you burn more calories in less time and more fat. Also with low intensity cardio the burn effect ends when you end your training as where interval training keeps your metabolism stoked for hours after training maximizing your burn.
Here is an example of interval training
4:30 seconds warm up (moderate speed)
30 seconds sprint
4:30 seconds recovery (moderate speed)
30 seconds sprint
4:30 seconds recovery (moderate speed)
Continue intervals for anywhere from 20-30 minutes
The second best way is to do high rep, low - moderate weight exercises. Circuit training where you go from one exercise to another with as little as 30 seconds rest in between sets.
Here is an example:
Jumping jacks 1 minute
Crunches 1 minute
Pushups 1 minute
Squats 1 minute
3 sets of 12 alternating lunge to shoulder press
3 sets chest press x 12
3 sets of bent over rows x 12
3 sets of bicep curls
3 sets of triceps extensions
1 minute of jump squats
1 minute of Lunge and press
You want to focus more on exercises that move more than one muscle. Focus on compound exercises (squats, pushups/chest press, pull-up/lat pull downs). Also focus on exercises that make you move like jumping jacks, mountain climbers, and burpees.
Hope this helps,

Q: I started bleeding heavily last month & it was a week after my normal cycle had come & gone. My ob/gyn dr. performed a DNC & a procedure called Novasure Ablation. It slowed/lessened the bleeding but it did not halt it. I am still bleeding. I don't have fibroids. The polyp that they found during the procedure was benign. The bleeding cannot be explained as all of my organs appear healthy. My dr. has advised me to remove my uterus. Right now I can't afford a consultation plus herbs but I would like to know if you have any suggestions. I wasn't sure if the female cleanse would be enough. I had been on the lemonade cleanse for 9 days when the bleeding started but of course the doctors said there wasn't a relationship. I came off of the diet a few days after the bleeding started & changed my diet to fish/seafood only, eating a raw salad at least once a day. Some days I eat no meat at all. My mother has osteoporosis due to her hysterectomy at a young age & she has been diagnosed with lupus as well. She's open to a consultation with you & trying to control her health with herbs & diet change vs. traditional medicine. Unfortunately money is an issue with her as well so she won't be able to use your services until sometime in January. Having said all of that I basically just want a recommendation for what you think might help my situation so that I don't have to succumb to this surgery. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks
Change your diet (go raw foods/vegan: no meat, no dairy products, and no refined grains). 2. Perform TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE (TWC) If you can afford it. 3. If can't afford TWC, take MOON CYCLE FORMULA (6-9 capsules daily) and drink 1 cup of MOON CYCLE TEA.
Q: Dherbs.com, I wanted to update you on my experience with the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN; I am on the third week of the program (almost finished) and I have lost 25 pounds thus far and still releasing weight. Although, I know the program calls for all raw foods; I have had a few days where I did not follow the plan (i.e. I had some cooked vegetable dishes and some Quinoa). Although I know this is a no-no; I wanted you to know that in spite of my disobedience; I have still released waste. I am now ready to know what's next. Would you recommend the full body detox? I am still overweight for my frame...and I am more interested in lifestyle changes than temporary fixes. I have been vegetarian for the last year. Thanks for your wonderful products.
Great testimony and kudos to you! We would recommend that you continue to detox (FULL BODY DETOX) to release that unnecessary weight (waste). For lifestyle change, Dherbs is the place to be (articles, e-books, videos, etc.).
Q: I am in need of cleansing my body and weight removal! (Removal and not loss because I don't want to find it again)! I need to remove about 80 pounds of unhealthy weight from my body and would like to do so in a natural way. I looked at both your Female Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse, but don't know which is a better option for me to follow right now? I eat a lot of organic foods, I juice (some) but need to increase my water intake (A LOT). I don't drink much soda at all and when I do it is organic carbonated lemonade. I realize carbonated drinks are not good for us and limit how much I drink. My body lets me know when I have eaten something that is not good for me by causing my hands and feet to swell. To reduce this I drink water. I am allergic to wheat and try to stay away from it as much as possible. I have few ailments and have started working out again (cardio and weight training). I also looked at your weight loss products, but thought I should maybe detox first. What do you think? Any assistance you can offer on your products and which ones I should take is of great appreciation.
A: The best thing for you is the Full Body Cleanse. The Full Body Cleanse will allow you to remove unwanted weight, while also optimizing your entier body so that you can maintain that weight and live a healthier lifestyle.
Q: Is there such thing as, cleansing too much? From May - July I did a 40 day cleanse. The cleanse was pretty much ridding my diet of refined sugar, flour, alcohol, and animal product for much of the time. I just recently finished the Total Body Cleanse, and will be finishing my series of cleanses with the Total Woman's Cleanse. I personally feel fine, but people keep warning me about over cleansing. Also, bringing up the issue of your body being stripped of the good bacteria (along with the bad). But, I"ve taken probiotic pills (1-2) virtually everyday througout all of my cleanses. Should I be concerned with overcleansing? After this initial year of hard core cleansing, I plan to cleanse maybe once or twice a year. What are you thoughts on probiotics? Like I mentioned, I am taking pills. But I'd like to find foods that provide all that I need so I don't have to take pills.
Many people are concerned about what happens to the beneficial intestinal flora after colonics are performed. Personally, I think many people put too much energy into worrying about something so inconsequential. If you're really worried about the beneficial intestinal flora after your colonic, you could always take a few capsules of acidophilus (acidophilus bifidus) or a liquid form of acidophilus (dairy-free, of course). I have never taken an acidophilus product after a colonic. I know Nature and my body too well. I know that my body naturally produces everything sold by man in a bottle, and that is purchased from a health food store, including beneficial flora or bacteria. I simply drink a minimum of 4 ounces of vegetable juice after my colonic sessions. If you're into carrot juice, carrot juice is just as effective as acidophilus in restoring good bacteria in the intestines. Juiced cantaloupe is even better than carrot juice in restoring the beneficial flora. Other natural substances that will help the body to repopulate beneficial flora or good bacteria in the intestines include: Blue Green algae, Spirulina, Chlorella, Irish Moss, Kelp, Bladderwrack, Dulse, Ginger, Cloves, Cayenne, Black Walnut Hull, and Carrot powder. Stop listening to these naysayers and keep doing YOU! You're on the right path!
Q: I am 6'0 starting day 1 at 246, on day 4, I hit 236. But for 3 days I am at the same weight. Do I need to workout to lose more weight, if so what are some good workouts for my body type. Most of my weight is in the midsection.
Hi, thanks for the question.
Your body does not like rapid changes in weight and will fight you along the way. These are called plateaus. It's too early to panic and by the time you get this email I am pretty sure your weight will have shifted again. You cannot spot lose weight. Your body picks and chooses where it gains weight and where it loses weight. sometimes they aren't the same places.
Working out always helps the process. Here is a blog I wrote, Three Successful Fitness Habits for Sustained Weight, on three successful habits for sustained weight loss.
Fitness for weight loss is interval cardio training and circuit weight training.
Example of both would be:
Interval training on bike.
3 minute warmup
30 seconds of high speed
1 minute of recovery
repeat for 15 minutes till 30 minutes.
Circuit training (five rounds-1 minute rest in between rounds)
Mountain climbers x 20
Pushups x 20
Squats x 20
Bent over rows x 15
Crunches x 25
Without knowing your body type, sports history, and health history I cannot recommend any specific exercise. I run a highly successful internet fitness/health coaching company www.theveganeffect.com. If you would like a free consultation you can fill out the health history form on the main page and I will have one of my fitness coaches contact you.
Hope this helps,

Q: I did the FULL BODY DETOX and ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN back to back. I just received my test results for hsv1 and it's still positive. I followed the diet strictly and followed everything that as instructed. I did not cheat at all. I was taking Dr. Sebi's herbs for 5 months and eating a vegan diet. At month 6 I came across your website and decided to give your products a try. I truly believed I would test negative this time. Here are the viral numbers after taking Dr. Sebi's herbs for 5 months. I started getting tested after month three. 5.32 - month 3 dr. sebi 4.32 - month 4 dr sebi 3.28 - month 5 dr sebi 3.79 - month 6 today (your products). What should I do next?
When people have difficulty healing, there's always an emotional, mental, and psychological block (where they really believe they have a disease and if it's said to be incurable they subconsciously believe it is incurable so no matter what they do they don't get physical results). Healing must be holistic! Clearly you are getting some results with herbs (Sebi's and mine) which means the herbs are doing their part but you are not doing your part. Belief is key to healing! If you are focused on "NOT wanting" herpes, you are in fact attracting herpes to stay with you because the Universe does not process negative language, i.e. "no" "not" "non" and "don't." So when you say or focus on NOT desiring a thing, i.e. "I don't want to have herpes!" the Universe hears: "I WANT to have herpes" and gives you what you want. You have to focus only on seeing yourself healed. Herpes can't be nowhere in your thought process, vocabulary, aura, etc. and it is! You are not the first person with this problem. I deal with hundreds of other individuals whose minds are not right and they go spend thousands of dollars for physical healing but they invest 0% into mental healing. Your healing depends on sources outside of self. You are looking for test results to prove your are healed rather than knowing, seeing, and FEELING that you are healed. You are looking for external products (herbs) to heal you and not your MIND and God-force. Herbs and diet only play a role. You didn't get herpes from what you ate. It was THOUGHT, EMOTIONS, ATTITUDE, DIET, LIFESTYLE, and perhaps PAST-LIFE KARMA! Let's talk! "All healing is mental"
Q: Started my Full Body Cleanse; I?ve been on it for a week :) Love it! Will this regulate my menstrual cycle? Because I have one every three weeks to the date and I have not received the second one for this month and have not been sexually active. I certainly hope so because having two cycles in one month absolutely drains me! It would be nice to have it once a month again!
Yes, it will help, but in order to specifically address your needs, we recommend is the Female Cleanse.
Also, after your cleanse, make sure you take 6 capsules of the Menstrual Cycle formula and drink one cup of the Female Health tea. This will help to fix your irregular cycles. Irregular cycles (every 3 weeks) denotes your body is not functioning properly and your hormonal system is out of whack. Detoxing will greatly help regulate your cycle.
Q: Good morning. I tried the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN and followed the diet. I must say that I am amazed at how good I feel. Energetic and focused but alas, I only lost 3 pounds in the 3 weeks. I am 5'5 and currently at 181 pounds. My body is extremely resistant to weight loss. I have done several different types of detox including the IZO juice cleanse in the last year and had not lost weight. I don't even seem to respond to a very low calorie diet. I do have elevated liver Enzyme levels and a recent blood test showed low B6 vitamin and not proper protein digestion. I exercise 3 times a week and I eat rather health and mostly organic. Please HELP. Thanks
This means that your body focused on another area that was of more importance than weight release. your mind wanted weight reduction but your body intelligence focused on something else. Go with the flow of the body intelligence and trust it. You apparently have an energetic block that prevents you from physically releasing weight (since you've tried other programs). Consider scheduling a consultation so we can get at the energetic/emotional root of your problem. Simply stop worrying about "losing" weight. Focus on what you desire (to see yourself in the size you desire). Don't focus on what you don't want (i.e. to lose weight).
Q: I just heard about the detox on the R. Parr show and wanted to purchase it. However, I don't think that I can afford the FULL BODY DETOX. I wanted to know if there are any discounts that I can use or if you can recommend a package that will do the basic cleanse for a smaller price. Please help. I am about 50 lbs overweight and really need this. Thank you
Q: Good Morning, I heard about you on the Power XM radio Al Sharpton show. I'm 32yrs old I weigh 285lbs and my goal is to loose 125lbs (being realistic). My symptoms and habits are; Bowel movement once a week, headaches, lower backaches, acne, dry skin, eczema, achey joints, asthma and tired all the time! Because of my work schedule and being a single parent I do fast food 2 times a day almost everyday. My oldest daughter is 102lbs 8yrs old - bowel movements maybe twice a week and the youngest 5 yr old has headaches. HELP !!!!!!
I strongly suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX, followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN, followed by the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. Work on your diet! Eat more raw foods! Start your daughter off with the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . Spend some time reading through our articles, Sir! Educate yourself!
Q: I have completed the FULL BODY DETOX and I have to say IT IS FABULOUS! My Doctor and I decided that it would be a good idea to do as I was diagnosed with Asthma in March, was prescribed prednisone to control my lung spasms which caused kidney stones and numerous cysts on my ovaries and in my breasts not to mention the 30 lb unhealthy weight gain. We are both VERY pleased with the results, lower blood pressure, healthy weight loss of 26 lbs, the shrinkage of the cysts by more than 2 mm each, easier breathing, and so on and so on :+} She was so impressed She asked for the website so she could order it too along with several of my co-workers and friends. I would like to remain healthy and keep my asthma at bay. I would like to know what would be good for long term health - I am 51 and menopausal so hot flashes and night sweats are here at least for the moment! I also would like to know if you have Lobelia in a capsule form for my asthma, I hear it works wonders. THANK YOU FOR THE RESCUE!
Thanks for sharing your success with our product! I would suggest a daily regimen (3 capsules each) of MUCUS BUSTER FORMULA, RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN , and LUNGS-RESPIRATORY TEA . I'd also perform the RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMENat least once a year.
Q: I have 2 more days left on the Total Woman Cleanse. I also completed the Full Body Detox in January. I started my cycle a couple of days before starting the Total Womans Cleanse, which lasted approxy 5 days. When my cycle stopped, I began to experience spotting everyday (which I understand is apart of the cleansing process). However, my cycle started again and has lasted for 4 days now, and I experienced some clots and heavy bleeding. I've also been feeling fatigue, as a result of the continuous bleeding. I've had problems with my cycle for several years, and I'm really seeking help in resolving the issue(s). I've had a couple of DNCs, over the past few years which have come back okay (praise God), but I also have an enlarged uterus. I was thinking about ordering the Yoni Formula, Moon cycle, Female Tea, and liquid iron. What do you suggest?
Don't be frustrated, Beloved! It will only block you! Consider ordering and reading our "Mental Science Manual" and "Love Manual" and APPLY the principles so as to help you remain positive, calm, and optimistic about your healing. Listen, after the Total Womans Cleanse, perform the Full Body Detox, and then (after you finish the FBD) start taking the Moon Cycle (formula and tea), Female Hormonal Formula, Yoni Formula, and Styptic Formula. Your body is regulating itself. Trust the natural process! Your body is undoing all the harm you did to it, so be patient, and understanding of all that your body has to do on and for your behalf! Okay? Stay positive! Your body is your humble servant!
Q: Hi, I am currently in the second week of the Full Body Detox. It was my decision to do this cleanse because I will be having a breast reduction surgery coming up on February 1, 2008 and I wanted my body to be in the healthiest condition possible (I have previously read the Toxic Tits article, but feel this is my last resort). This will be my first major surgery and I wanted to know what supplements and/or teas would be beneficial to ensure a speedy recovery. Along with my Full Body Detox, I also purchased the Khemetian Gold, OxyDrops, and Vitamin C Formula. I have a history of iron-deficiency anemia also and I purchased some blackstrap molasses, but do I need to take anything else for that? I read that Vitamin C was good for healing, but what other herbal formulas/supplements should I purchase? Thank you and God bless you for all the wonderful work you are doing. I have already referred several people to your site, so keep up the good work! Also, would missing a couple capsules of the formulas in my FBD reduce the effectiveness of it? Thank you for your words of acknowledgment. Much obliged!
Beloved, sounds like you ordered all the right stuff to facilitate healing. The only thing I could think of for you to add would be the IRON PHOSPHATE FORMULA!
Q: Thank you for your reply. Iâ€™m interested to buy your products because I want to be relieved from pain occurring monthly associated with my menstrual cycle. This affects me so much. Iâ€™m a regular income earner with a salary to meet my basic needs. I will save a little daily so I can buy your product. This might help me relieve the symptoms. From my last ultrasound, my uterine fibroid is just 3 cm in size. There are 3 and the 2 are smaller in size but I suspect this causes the pain. Pain starts 3 days before menstruation until after my ovulation. It last for about 15 days a month and it affects me so much. My pain is at the lower right abdomen and pelvic area. I also feel cramps in my right leg. It is most appreciated if you could help me. God bless.
Beloved, purchase a bottle of MOON CYCLE FORMULA and FEMALE HEALTH TEA and take these 3 days before your menses begin. These 2 products are very economical and will give you relief until you can perform one of the kits and regimens.
Q: I heard amazing things about your products! I wanted to know what if any are the differences in the FULL Body Cleanse and the 10 day cleanse? Do they both work at cleansing the full body? Is the 10 day the same as the 20 day Full Body Cleanse? I wanted to try it out and tell all my friends and family.
A: The 10 Day Express cleanse focuses more so on the detoxification of your blood, liver and colon. The tea that's included in the 10 day cleanse helps cleanse all of your other organs. The 20 day Full Body cleanse includes the formulas that detoxes all of your major organs including the blood, liver, heart, kidney's and colon. The first 10 days of the 20 day cleanse is geared towards detoxing your body, the last 10 days help alkaline the body.
Q: I have been trying to get pregnant for the last couple of months with no luck. I was diagnosed with endometriosis 12 years ago and I have an 11 year old son. I got married six months ago and I want to have 2 more children. After reading the information on your website, how many success stories of people who were cured of endo... and how many people became pregnant after using your product? What would you recommend?
We recommend you first perform our Full Body Cleanse.
After this, perform the Female Cleanse.
Lastly, perform the Fertility Kit and Regimen.
Each of these cleanses can address specific needs within your body to help heal your body from adverse conditions.
Q: I've come to your website many times in the past few days and I would like to start ordering some products to begin detoxing my body and to rid my system of the herpes simplex virus and any other std that may be lingering within. I was diagnosed with this virus on 12/5, but since then I have been given amoxicillin by the doctor. After doing some research, I bought some Olive Leaf Extract, L-Lysine and Echinacea with goldenseal. I feel a lot better, especially since I began to stop eating certain foods, like cheese, pork, peanuts and chocolate. I've also been maintaining a positive attitude and believing that I will be free of this virus. I am extremely interested in starting a cleansing ritual beginning at the end of the month, but at current, I would just like to begin with a supplement you would recommend to cleanse my blood, my genital and vaginal area. Your recommendations will be deeply appreciated.
