Besides its contraceptive properties, what are the other benefits of the Mexican Wild Yam Root?

Answer by Dherbs

Public

Wild Yam is a great source of natural progesterone hormonal precursor. It helps dissolve gas pockets in colon, helps against spasms, (especially abdominal spasms), balances estrogen and
progesterone levels, helps to regulate the female menstrual cycle, tones and nourishes female breasts, and alleviates pain (headache).

    Oh no, no no no!!!!!!! These are just 2 ingredients with a host of other ingredients that neutralizes these 2 contraceptives' potency. MOON CYCLE FORMULAis NOT a contraceptive. Not at all!

    Q: I want to know what is the difference in using the Wild Alum Root Powder for douching in reference to my prolapsed uterus problem vs. using the FEMALE HEALTH TEA Product that you sell. I would like to know so that I am able to know why and when to use a particular herbal product that will be better for my situation. Your clarity on this for my education will greatly appreciate. Thanks for your time and do have a wonderful day/evening upon receipt of this email. Thanks again for any clarity you can provide so I will better understand why you suggested and advised me to use the Female Health Tea.

    A:

    There's really no difference: it's just that wild alum is one herb (and a very good) and the tea I recommended has more herbs which have an affinity for female organs. Both can be used or one over the other.

    Q: In the Full Body Detox booklet it states I can have wild rice if I need something warm. I really don't like wild rice, but can I make myself a vegetable soup which I prefer. To me its more filling then the rice.

    A:

    DHERBS: Sure! Simply eat your vegetable soup instead of wild rice.

    Also I have been having sweet cravings lately. Is there anyone, besides mental will power to overcome this craving.

    DHERBS: The root cause is emotional, however, try drinking Licorice Root or Cinnamon tea during your detox. Your detox may be detoxing some old stale emotions from the 4th chakra (love center).

    Q: I need some advice on whether I am taking the right herbs to balance my hormones. I have a mustache and a lot of hair on my face and acne. So I take saw palmetto for that. Also, I had an ovary removed about 2 years ago. Since then I have a problem with vaginal dryness and very low sex drive. I am always moody and irritated by everything. I am currently taking saw palmetto, vitex chaste berry, dong quai, and wild yam root, all in the form of a capsule. Please tell me if this combination is good for me.

    A:

    THE COMBINATION IS GOOD, BUT YOU HAVE A HORMONAL IMBALANCE AND SHOULD CONCENTRATE ON YOUR ENDOCRINE SYSTEM. LOOK INTO OUR TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. YOU ARE PRODUCING MORE MALE-BASED HORMONES THAN FEMALE-BASED HORMONES. READ OUR ARTICLE â€FEMALE HORMONAL REPLACEMENT THERAPYâ€

    Q: We have ordered The Children's Pancreas Kit for my nine year old daughter. My daughter was diagnosed a diabetic last June. We started giving her the 6th formula. The issue we have now, is formula 4 which contains Licorice root. My Daughter is allergic Licorice root". Can we order the kit without Licorice root?

    A:

    Unfortunately we don't customize formulas. What you can do is find an extract of Cascara Sagrada, or Senna leaf, and supplement with that product. Just make sure it is alcohol free! You could even just give the child prune juice (perhaps diluted with water) in place of Formula #6.

    Q: I commonly get sinuses headaches as a result of congestion. I have a sinus drip which is the root cause of this and as a result I am suppose to take sinus medicines daily. I recently did the 10 day express cleanse during which time I did not have the issue with congestion. Which individual product can be used to resolve my congestion issues?

    A:

    The formula's in the 10 Day Cleanse didn't specifically help with your congestion issue, but more so the adjusted diet did. Eliminating certain foods from your diet and eating foods that provide benefits helped decrease the amount of mucus and inflammation in your body. It would be best for you to do the Respiratory Cleanse and Regimen as this specifically helps recondition the lungs and helping with sinus issues.

    Please read our article entitled Respiratory Health. http://www.dherbs.com/articles/respiratory-health-67.html

    Q: I would like to know if you have any herbal product that tightened and strengthens a dropped uterus and cervix in the vagina? Is there any product that I can douche with to tighten this area and problem. I called a local herb shop that I have purchased herbs for years before buying from dherbs and the owner said she has Wild Alum Root Powder that I can douche with to help tighten the uterus and etc., but I wanted to know if you have a good herbal formula product to douche and one that I can take. I am trying to avoid sugery. I have started having back pains in my lower back areas that extend to my right and left sides and periodic tummy pains which the nurse at the clinic where I go to be checked said this is generally the symptoms when a woman has a lapsed or dropped uterus and cervix. This also causes bladder control problems as well. Please tell me what you advise and what products that you believe will help me with these issues specifically, the dropped uterus and cervix problems. I have already purchase #3 products from you about a month ago: The CARDIO-VASCULAR FORMULA, the COLON FORMULA and the TUMOR BUSTER EXTRACT for the tumor that the doctors say is in one of my adrenal glands. I have had some good results from the Cardiovascular product. in helping me keep my blood pressure down.

    A:

    For prolapsed uterus I recommend that you first perform the FULL BODY DETOX followed by the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. You can use our FEMALE HEALTH TEA as a douche solution and douche with it. After your cleanses you should take 3 capsules daily of our ADRENALIZER FORMULA.

    Q: I am taking more than 20-30 herbal supplements a day and am wondering if it's okay to mix or take all of them at the same time.

They are mostly in gelatin capsules. I am concerned that too much gelatin is bad for me too!

    A:

    You are overloading your body! Spread those supplements out throughout your day. Take 6 of them at a time every 3 hours or so. This is best for your body!

    For example:
    7 a.m.
    Burdock
    Yellow Dock
    Sarsaparilla
    Kelp
    Licorice Root
    Oregon Grape Root
    10 a.m.
    Red Clover

    Copper
    Selenium
    Calcium
    Magnesium


    1 p.m.
    50 Chlorella tablets 200mg
    10 500mg Spirulina capsules
    elderberry
    echinacea
    goldenseal
    vitamin e


    4 p.m.
    gotu kola
    american ginseng
    guarana
    dong quai
    guggulipid
    red yeast rice


    7 p.m.
    dandelion
    cod liver oil
    neptune krill oil
    acai
    psyllium husks
    Before bedtime
    apple pectin
    oat bran
    chromium picolinate
    wormwood
    damiana
    st johns wort
    5-htp
    pycnogenol


    We do not reccomend Gelatin capsules. Gelatin capsules are hard to digest in the body, which is why we offer vegetarian capsules.

    Q: I would like to know what are the benefits of green food drinks (superfoods as I've heard them called) and how often could I drink them in a day. Thank you in advance for your wisdom!

    A:

    The benefits are all positive: alkaline, energizing, nutritious, rich in chlorophyll, antioxidant, etc. and you can drink them as much as you like, just like many people drink wine, beer, coffee, Kool-Aid, milk, etc. as much as they like and never worry about it. It's all good!
