Mona’s Quest to lose 70 pounds – Day 5

0-136386333-monaquest

 

 

Day 5

Today is Sunday and I am going to relax. Still I get up at about 5 am and I get moving for my husband who will need to be at church at 7:30 am. I just feel energized and focused.

Relaxing to me is getting out when the world is still quiet and I can shop and exercise and watch my hgtv before my sons and husband take over the tv for ESPN ALL DAY! No worries though, tv is not good for me anyway to watch at length.

Today I did have more of a challenge with wanting to eat the wrong food. But I remembered how well I was doing and on my health mission and how fantastic I feel. Got a bit difficult though. And it was too early to go to bed. That is one of my tactics because I see that when I detox I need more sleep. Usually around 7-8pm is my bedtime. Or time to at least go in our bedroom for peace and quiet.

Oh Lord, who is cooking meat stuffed with garlic on this block? I am going to bed and closing all the windows! Night all………..

    Q: Hey Gary here are my challenge I'm 43 been trying to lose weight, I start on a program and stop once I don't see any results. I tried the Detox I think I lost about 5 pounds, I work at night and have a part time jobs seeing private patients in the day so my sleep pattern is little maybe I get 4 hrs of sleep I'm having problems getting this weight off. I also want to mention when I do exercise my joints swell so I try to keep it low impact. I also have sweet tooth so I get these cravings here and there more so when I'm at work at night. Hopefully you can help me. Thanks....Lakeisha

    A:

    Hi, thanks for the question.

    Lets go through one thing at a time. Your overall schedule and lifestyle is not healthy and will likely sabotage your health goals. Receiving so little sleep will prevent major weight loss because your body cannot cleanse and cannot recharge. You must repay your energy debt before you can properly lose weight. Your body is always in a state of playing catch-up to the workload you are giving it. It stores fat because it doesn't have the
    energy to properly function. I understand crazy schedules but they will not get you the results you desire. I would focus on trying to find a more balanced or healthier schedule before adding the stress of losing weight to an already overworked body.

    Your body has been come toxic and inflamed from a toxic lifestyle. A high carb-high raw vegan diet will help ease your suffering the most. A high carb (fruit based) diet will help replenish your energy stores and reduce
    nutritional stress. To learn more about how a healthy vegan diet can help you reach your goals please consider the following eBooks found at Dherbs.com.

    "Go Vegan the Healthy way" or
    "Lose weight the healthy way"

    As far as your mindset is concerned an all or nothing approach rarely breeds success. Especially when it come to regaining health or losing weight. It takes time and patience. I would recommend checking out the DVD
    "fat sick and nearly dead". It's a fascinating look at how you can quickly go from a health zero to a health hero in the shortest time. Every single person on the planet has a sweet tooth. Those who say they don't usually are hopped up on caffiene or other drugs and pharmaceuticals. Every cell in the body runs on glucose. The brain eats up a small apple and a half worth of glucose every hour. Eating a high carb-lower fat diet will give you an energy abundance, reduce overall stress, and help you lose weight.

    Hope this helps,

    Q: I'm sooo excited right now. Today was my first time visiting the local herb shop. The sister there gave me an eye reading, that was sooo amazing. I asked her how could I learn and she said that I would need to go to california. So I plan to come and visit your shop too if the FATHER is willing... Oh yes, another thing, have you heared of a herb called "Silver Shield" She recommended it for my daughters ezcema. She said that it will cure it!!!!

    A:

    Great to hear, Beloved! I feel your excitement. Iridology is an awesome science. California is also an awesome place to visit, especially if you are health conscious. Silver Shield may be a common name of a particular plant so I would need to know the botanical name. Peace and Love!

    Q: I am on day 17 of the Full Body Detox. It has been wonderful, although I have slipped up and made some bad food choices I have been able to stick to eating salads and Fruit and nuts. I have lost 5 pounds overall. I have Cogan's Syndrome. I stopped taking my azathioprine, Iron pill, and fish oils while on the Detox. I feel great aside from my Tinnitus in my left ear is ringing tremendously loud. Other than that I feel great. My skin looks so much better. My prednisone steroid hump in my back has gone away. My teeth look whiter. My eyes are whiter. Blemishes are gone. I just don't know what to do after I am done with this detox. I know that I need to continue with this particular diet because it is good to & for me. I can do that, however I just don't want to have low iron, tinnitus, or vertigo spells. What would you recommend I take after the full body cleanse. My mother has seen a difference in me and so has my husband. I love this, I can't wait to see my rheumatologist so he can tell me that my Cogan's Syndrome is in remmission. What should I do next?

    A:

    Thank you for sharing this with us. We're so happy to hear that the cleanse is going well for you. We suggest trying the Ear Oil to help bring relief from tinnitus. You can also try the Joint Aid and the MSM Sulfur to help specifically help address arthritis. If you're experiencing eye issues from Cogan's Syndrome we suggest using the Eye Formula. Continuing with a balanced diet is best as it is responsible for some of the success you were able to achieve with the cleanse. We suggest consuming two raw meals a day and one of your choice to help continue the healing process.

    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

    A:

    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 feel I'm not in the best of healthy at the age of 34 but what is a good way to get myself and family healthy. My husband and I need to lose weight and get healthy this is the heaviest we both have been in our lives. We need your help and we want to start a family. What do you recommend please help!

    A:

    I run a vegan health coaching program over Skype that you may be interested in. please check out the website at www.theveganeffect.com

    It is my philosophy that we shouldn't be losing weight to get healthy we should be getting healthy to lose weight. If losing weight is your focus it will be temporary but if you get healthy it will be permanent. 

    The best way to lose weight in a healthy way is to change nutrient density of your foods (eat more raw vegan low fat foods) and to do a full body detox or cleanse. You can see detoxing options at www.dherbs.com 

    Hope this helps,

    Q: I'm 17 years of age and go to a boarding high school in Florida. I just moved here from L.A. Over the summer. I've always been passionate about picking up valuable information that is not taught in schools. Even though I've always gotten good grades in all classes, I have always had a dislike for school. I feel like it is trapping me, because I have very little time to study topics that are truly beneficial such as law, herbs, history and many other topics. I just wanted to give you a brief background image of me; bottom line is this... I want to be part of what you are doing. I know you probably have so many positions filled. And I've never been materialistic and never liked school, but I also understand that if I want to get out in the world on my own right now I need to have a situation where I can make a sufficient amount of money to support myself. So I'm just letting you know I'm very passionate about helping people heal themselves and I would be very committed to what you are trying to accomplish in terms of healing people mentally and physically. I feel so thankful because most people don't get the opportunity to come across TRUE herbalism, TRU history, TRUE law, etc, until they are deep into adulthood, if ever. And I feel like I must fulfill my opportunity starting NOW. Because if I don't, I would be failing the mission I was incarnated here to do. Peace

    A:

    Greetings, Beloved! You have recognized at a very young age that school is a waste of time as measured against the subjects of your heart. Make the time to study the topics of your interest. It's well worth it, Beloved! I did it for many years of my life and when I was out of school and got into knowledge, I spent almost whole days studying the interests of my desires which has led me to the life I am now living. I'm glad I followed my heart. In regards to Dherbs, unfortunately Beloved, I am an Inter-net company only and thus have no positions available. What is your zodiac sign? Maybe we can help you to find work that is suitable to your interests. Your 10th House explains the area's best for you work-wise. Hey, thanks for reaching out, Beloved! One day I would like to employ thousands of people. If you ever want to talk or need advice, give me a call!

He needs to lose the weight and it may slow down the diabetes and he may not have to use the pills. Will this conflict with his medications?

    A:

    Our Full Body Cleanse helps to treat every disease and disorder including, diabetes. Once completed, have him perform the Pancreas Kit & Regimen, which will work wonders against his diabetes.

    Q: My husband and I finished the FULL BODY DETOXlast week and we feel unbelievably wonderful. It was more than a detox for the body- it was also for the mind- thank you! I am now very nervous about undoing all the work that I have done and very interested and continuing the healing that my body is going through-what do you suggest? I am 31 weight 223lb, I have been diagnosed with Polycystic ovarian syndrome and I am in the planning on undergoing invitro procedures the next 2 months. Are your herbs safe to take with the fertility drugs that I will be taking during this period? While I am with child? In particular I am interested in the weight release and the bunny rabbit formulas. If you suggest something else please advise.

    A:

    Glad to hear of your success with the FULL BODY DETOX! In re: fertility drugs, don't take our herbs if you are planning to take drugs because you'd be wasting your money. How can man make a fertility drug when God didn't make NO PART of your body with drugs? Drugs are toxic and do you think you can have a healthy baby using toxins? How can poisons make one become fertile? Fertility lies in diet (fruits, herbs), thought process, attitude, and lifestyle. Have you read our "IMPOTENCE INFERTILITY AND STERILITY" article? If not, please give it a read, Beloved! To take drugs after DE-TOXING defeats the whole purpose. Check out our : TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE and FERTILITY CLEANSE for infertility and PCOS and check out WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMENfor the weight problem.

    Q: I am a 38-year-old Black woman, and my husband and I want to have a baby. I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, which has caused me to be infertile. My egg count is very high, and my husband has a good sperm count. My Fallopian tubes are open. My body just doesn't produce enough progesterone. I have taken two rounds of clomid, and I did ovulate both times; however, I didn't time it correctly, so my husband and I didn't have intercourse at the right time. I would really prefer to pursue a natural route to getting pregnant. Do you have any suggestions. Thanks in advance for your help! Rasheda

    A:

    We recommend doing with the Full Body cleanse to detox your body of waste and toxins that often contribute to health ailments like such. In doing the cleanse, you're detoxing all of your major organs giving your body the reset it needs to function properly. Your body is more receptive to healing itself when your overall health is in a better place. Move on to The Female Cleanse to specifically help aid with the conditions of PCOS. After addressing the PCOS you can move on to the Fertility Cleanse to help with conceiving if you're still experiencing difficulties.

    Q: My husband has sent you a question about painful erections. I just wanted to add these occur during the night and prevent sleep or during the day. They are not painful during intercourse. In other words they are unwanted erections. His pleasure during intercourse seems to be minimal. He seems to masturbate a lot and hence his vitality is low. As we are trying to get pregnant we do not want to decrease his fertility or increase his sex drive.

    A:

    Males get erect for a reason. They may seem unwanted to you guys, but not to the body. If it's not a bother to you, allow him to enter you (vaginally). The semen lost during masturbation could be inside of you for purposes of procreation. The more he gets to ejaculate inside of you, the more those painful erections will subside (and the better your chances of becoming pregnant). The erections are a subconscious body statement that he really wants to reproduce as well as that he is boiling with unexpressed creativity that only has an outlet via sexual intercourse. The more intercourse, the more those erections will subside. Or, he must learn to channel his sexual desire up to his higher charkas via yoga and other measures which would stimulate his pineal gland and crown center. Doing this, he'd become more spiritual and intuitive. You guys might also want to consciously have intercourse at night as the night-time (moon) supports conception. Go with the flow of Nature!

    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.

I really need to work on my diet am vegetarian however, I feel like I truly face some of the same issues you faced during your conversion.. perhaps I need to consider going back to strictly vegan vegetables!

I found this article to very interesting that you wrote.. I have headaches from time to time also.

    A:

    Q: I am trying to find a way to get rid of my headaches; I'm also been diagnosed with sleep Apnea and feel this is a cause as well. I'm working on changing my diet all together as I feel this is a trigger for it also, I like to find a vegan diet also, that would allow for me to put on a few health pounds. Thanks so much my brother and praises to our ancestors for your enlightment. Please help.

    A:

    First, detoxify your body (FULL BODY DETOX). Second, perform the DHERBS 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. The rest of the information I feel can be found in the article section on â€HEADACHES†For sleep apnea, an article is coming soon! Work on your respiratory system (perform the RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN). Stay tuned for the article!

    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 have been married for 4 years and I just found out that my husband was diagnosed with ADD when he was a little boy. His mother told me that she had a nervous breakdown when he was inside her womb. I wanted know, is there anything that my husband can take to help stabilize his chemical unbalance. He has decided that he wants to walk away from our marriage because he is not able to cope with pressure. Please help a marriage that is divided. I love my husband but I don't know how to help him. I pray for him every day. That's all I know to do right now. But I just wanted to check to see if you had any suggestions or any articles that I can read.

    A:

    Your husband needs to first detoxify his body (FULL BODY DETOX) and while detoxing he should take a few of the Crystal Elixirs (i.e. #6 and #7). After his Detox, he needs to take daily NERVES FORMULA and drink NERVES TEA. Prayer is good but actions are better. Get that man involved in activities such as yoga, meditation, etc. Have him Detox his body. Look for an energy healer in your area. What zodiac sign is your husband? Aries, Gemini, and Virgo are naturally prone to nerves problems.

    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: My husband has prostate cancer and is currently being treated with injections of Zoladex and was previously on Casodex also. He was taken off of Casodex and was given a second injection of Zoladex. Now he is feeling very sick; he lost is appetite; is continuing to lose weight; and just seem to be feeling bad. He also had radiation because cancer had spread more to the spine; The Dr. is concerned it would cause spinal compression. His PSA has gone up from 4 to 13. Want can I do to help my husband.

    A:

    The drugs are no good for him! They are feeding the cancer. His body is not made up of drugs! Radiation is a monster! Cooks the human flesh! I recommend he detox a.s.a.p (FULL BODY DETOX) and then follow the FULL BODY DETOXup with the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. After these cleanses, put him on PROSTATE FORMULA , MALE HORMONAL FORMULA, and ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD. Have him drink DETOX TEA daily.

    Q: Peace, I am very interested in using your products. However, I want to be sure that I am on the right track. I have a serious problem eliminating waste from my body. My bowels do not move naturally. I have to take something to get any movement. Recently, I visited with a Chinese Herbalist who informed me that I "had" a weak spleen. I began taking Four Gentlemen Teapils along with Yin Chi female performance for energy and smooth move cap. My energy improved tremendously but the bowel movements were minimal. On my next visit he took me off of the Four Gentlemen and put me on Gui Pi Wan Teapils and a detox. I'm not real sure about the contents of the detox caps but my bowels did move a bit more but still not on their own when I finished the detox. Now I am at the point where I feel good still with some bloating in my upper abdomen, very uncomfortable. I would like to work with someone who can help me to understand how to heal my body. Thus, my husband mentioned your name a couple of months ago. He heard about you on a radio show. And, I have a 10-year old daughter who's body is preparing for menstruation. She complains about mild stomach aches more like cramps and some headaches during certain times of the month. I want to know what I can do to assist her body as it transitions into young woman hood. I am thinking of your full body cleanse first. I would love to maybe speak with you and put myself on the best path possible. Thank you.

    A:

    Give your daughter MOON CYCLE FORMULA and FEMALE HORMONAL FORMULA (1-2 capsules daily). And/or drink 1 cup of FEMALE HEALTH TEA daily.
