I am a 55 year old female. I have an overactive bladder. I am trying to control it myself, without medication. I have not tried herbs. I eat fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins (not beef or
pork). I added back more meat proteins 1 1/2 years ago because I was becoming so tired and lacking energy. (I read The Schwartzbein Diet, which helped convince me to add more protein.) I don’t eat
much sugar, salt (only 500 mg./day) or hardly any processed foods. I drink water and licorice tea, because it makes me feel good. I believe in the power of positive thinking. Can you help me with
this?

Answer by Dherbs

Public

The steps you are taking in your diet are a great start. Try going raw, and eliminating grains and meat altogether. You can get enough protein and healthy fats with avocado, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, almonds, brazil nuts, coconut. You can also add Vegan Protein Powder to smoothies.

I also recommend you give our Full Body Cleanse a try to further detoxify your entire body. After detoxing, the ideal formula for you is our Kidneys Bladder-Adrenal formula.

    Q: I'm writing regarding 2 issues that I would like advice on. First, I am a 31 year old professional athlete (african american), and I was diagnosed with over active bladder in 2006. This condition makes me use the rest room about 20 to 30 times per day, it is very uncomfortable. The urologist went inside the penis with a camera, but he did not find anything, and from there he said I had "overactive bladder". I would like to know if you recommend something that specifically could work on helping repair the bladder, and prostate area. I have already taken your Full Body Detox. I am just looking for something that specifically repairs the bladder/kidney function. On that note, I also want to know is there something I can take for penile dysfunction? I was with my wife the other night, and everything went fine. Until, I noticed that I was experiencing some issues as far as the penis staying erect, about half way through the act. I do not smoke, drink, or abuse any drugs. I'm wondering where it may have come from? Could the frequent urination have anything to do with it? Also, it is noteworthy to mention that I was masturbating alot even 3 times a day, for a period of years. I am wondering could that be a problem? Can I repair these issues?

    A:

    Greetings! I recommend the Total Male Cleanse which will address every concern you wrote about. While performing this cleanse, order and drink "Kidney's Tea", and "Jackrabbit Tea" (1 cup of each daily while cleansing). Your genital glands may have become weakened due to the excess masturbation. You lost a lot of zinc (with every ejaculation zinc and other nutrients are lost), so after the TMC make sure you purchase, and take our Zinc Phosphate, MSM Sulfur, Kidneys-Bladder Formula and Male Hormonal Formula, at least for 3 months until you rebuild the uro-genital system. The kidneys are connected to the sex glands.

    Learn mental science for sexual enhancement. The same principles apply. Check out our 'Mental Science' e-book and work those techniques in the sex act. Trust me - they work!
    You can heal, Beloved!
    Also, read some of our great FREE health articles on male sexual health. The site is loaded with good free information!

    Q: Can chaparral cause the thyroid to become overactive? I went to the Dr's a couple of weeks ago and she stated that my thyroid had become overactive. It was under active which caused me to become over weight. When I had my youngest son about 12 years ago it was very overactive and the Dr's didn't want to attribute it to just having a baby which may have knocked my hormones crazy. Now this Dr wants me to go thru a lot of tests. And I know my recent weight loss of 50 pounds has come from being on an herbal regiment program. I haven't told the Dr what I'm doing and she hasn't asked, so I'm not going to say anything. I also take a multi vitamin which is herb based.

    A:

    We recommend that you take the Thyroid Formula, Iodine Formula, and Electric Greens Combo, all available in our online store. Chaparrall is and herb and will not harm the body.

I'm on Atentonol 50mg; htcz 25mg and synthyroid 0.125 mg, I'm a 53 year old female 5'10 and weigh 244, I haven't always been like this, sugar is my downfall, I do a lot of vegetables, and fruits, I only buy organic, the only meats I eat is wild salmon and a few fishes, any help would be greatly appreciated I got your web site listening to 102.5 in Atlanta, thanks much.

    A:

    For weight release, perform the Full Body Detox kit and regimen followed by the Weight Release kit and regimen.

    Q: 10 years ago I had iodine radiation treatment, because I had an overactive thyroid, and was told that the iodine treatment would shrink my thyroid gland. After the treatment I developed hypothyroidism. I have been on Synthyroid medication every since. What herbal product do you recommend that I take for my under active thyroid? Because my thyroid is not producing what a normal gland produces.

    A:

    We recommend you first perform the Full Body Cleanse. After completing the cleanse, as a daily regimen take the Thyroid Aid and iodine Formula.  

    Please take the time to read our Thyroid Gland article.

    Q: Peace, Dherbs.com. I emailed earlier this year requesting advise on problems I've been having with both my stomach and bladder which are still persisting. Around 5 years ago I noticed that my stomach started to swell until it became fully distended and firm (almost like a round ball). I found this unusual because I have always had a very flat stomach and have always been very active, as well as, tried to maintain a good diet. However after consulting with several western doctors non seems to have a clue as to the cause of the problem. Although during one examination a urologist said he could feel a hard lump just under my right rib cage. I am currently due to have an 'endoscopy' but am running out of options if this procedure does not reveal or identify the problem. Regards my bladder, this problem started between 13-15 years old, I am now 36 years. The main problem is that a majority of the time I am unable to urinate normally. Instead it sometimes takes upto 2-3 mins for the bladder to release anything, even when I'm presse, also even when something does come out it's usually in trickles which stops and starts. There is no pain, but it is very frustrating. Also, I usually need to urinate at least once every hour even if I have not drunk any fluid for a long period of time. This tends to cause a big problem if I am not near a toilet for long periods of time, as I then have to hold myself, which can be very uncomfortable. I won't go on hopefully this info will be sufficient for a diagnosis or an idea as to what the problem may be. Either way, any insight that you may be able to help me with into these two issues will be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    We would recommend the Full Body Cleanse and the Female Cleanse. Our Kidney-Bladder-Adrenals can also be helpful in remedying some of ther issues you are experiencing. Once you complete the cleanse, consume this formula to keep with the progress you've made.

    Q: I am a 37 year old female working as a school bus driver for Orange County Public Schools in Orlando Florida. I am also obese (315lbs), and I have diabetes, high cholesterol, and hypertension, which I am taking medication for all these, which can get expensive and sometimes I can't afford to get them, like now I am out, but I would love to try some of your products. I am also now exercising regularly so that I can lose this weight and hopefully loose this medication that I am on. Help me if you can, I will greatly appreciate all that you can do.

    Q: I am a 42-year-old female and in the last year I've been diagnosed with many types of environmental and food allergies (corn, soy, peanuts, green peas, and yeast) additionally a HIDA scan showed that my gallbladder is not functioning properly (no gallstones) but only dumping 12%. Could there be a link between gallbladder and food allergies? Could you recommend another option, other than surgery? I exercise 3 - 4 times a week and have a fairly decent diet; but over the past year I've gained aprox 30 pounds. Things are not quite adding up; only the pounds. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    SURGERY, BECAUSE YOUR GALLBLADDER IS DEFECTIVE? DOCTORS ARE INSANE! YOU SIMPLY REJUVENATE THE ORGAN AND THE ORGAN FUNCTIONS TO PAR AGAIN. AND YOU REJUVENATE THE ORGAN OR THE ENTIRE BODY WITH FOOD THAT NOURISH, PROVIDE ENERGY, AND CAUSE GROWTH, REPAIR, AND MAINTENANCE FOR SUSTAINING LIFE. WE CALL THIS "HERBACEUTICAL" AND THAT'S WHAT WE SELL. BELOVED, SURGERY IS TO GET MONEY FROM INSURANCE AT THE EXPENSE OF YOUR TEMPLE (OF GOD). IT IS UNNECESSARY. BELOVED, I HUMBLY SUGGEST YOU PERFORM OUR FULL BODY DETOX AND FOLLOW THE KIT UP WITH A DAILY MAINTENANCE OF OUR LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FORMULA (3 CAPSULES DAILY) AND LIVER EXTRACT (1-2 DROPPERFULS IN WATER DAILY) AND YOU WILL NOTICE A DIFFERENCE. YOU SHOULD ALSO START DRINKING DANDELION ROOT TEA AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. AFTER YOU GET YOUR RESULTS WE ONLY ASK THAT YOU FILL OUT OUR AFFIDAVIT OF HEALING SO THAT WE MAY PROVE TO GOVERNMENT THAT PEOPLE ARE HEALING THEMSELVES WITH GOD'S PLANTS. THE GOVERNMENT IS PLANNING TO CRACK DOWN ON NATURAL HEALING BECAUSE TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP AND THE DRUG INDUSTRY IS LOSING A LOT OF MONEY. THE PEOPLE MUST NOW SPEAK AND RECLAIM THEIR SOVEREIGNTY.

    Q: I have not had my period in about a year and a half - ever since I went off of birth control. I recently saw an intuitive healer, who recommended your herbs and said that I should follow your program to detox from the birth control pills. However, after looking through your list of products, I was unclear as to whether I should be doing the full body cleanse or the female cleanse. Which would you recommend?

    A:

    Try both cleanses! The Full Body Cleanse works with your entire system and all of its eliminative channels to eliminate impurities and restore to optimal function, while the Female Cleanse focuses more predominantly on helping. to provide essential nutrients conducive to female sexual reproductive health

    Q: I read your website on the Michael Baisden's forum and I have been looking with much excitement at your products! I know you don't have time to recommend products to everyone, but if you could recommend something for my 3 year old son, it would be greatly appreciated. In the last year he has gotten the ringworm twice since starting daycare. Once in the head and the second time on the forehead. I've used over the counter cream the second time which made it go away for a short time. And now a month later he is developing a rash, it looks like small pimples, not the ringworm, but I'm thinking its ringworm because its in the same spot. If you could recommend some herbs for him to get rid of this ringworm once and for all, I will purchase it immediately. Just for your info, he doesn't eat meat except at school and absolutely no pork. Thanks in advance

    A:

    Please rub Dherbs OZ OIL on his body parts with ringworm.

    Q: I am a 27 year old female, and I have a skin disorder called lichen planus and have suffered from this disorder since I was about 5 years old, the disorder covers about 90% of my body and has come back in full force and I refuse to take anymore steroids or creams that do not help and only cause other afflictions, I have learned that in the UK they have discovered a possible herbal cure called the LP-Tab and I have been considering trying this herbal tab, its says the lichen planus will be gone for good with about a 90 day worth of tabs, I was wondering could you help me with this before I send my money over seas and may not receive any treatment, also I have been reading a lot of things on your site and agree with all the different things you talk about, I was also planning a trip to California to receive consultation from you and also spiritual treatment, so if you can please, get back with me about the lichen planus and the consultations I would certainly be pleased.

    A:

    WHEN IT COMES TO IMPROVING YOUR HEALTH, YOU NEVER HAVE ANYTHING TO LOSE, BELOVED. ALL YOU CAN DO IS TRY AND TAKE CHANCES. IF IT'S ALL-NATURAL, HEY, GIVE IT A TRY. AGAIN, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE AND ALL TO GAIN. JUST MAKE SURE YOU ASK ABOUT REFUNDS, GUARANTEES, ETC. READ UP ON EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE FINE PRINT.

    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: My 20-year-old daughter has been diagnosed with focal glomerulosclerosis last year. (The same kidney disease Alonso Mourning had). She has protein spilling in her urine. I was thinking about purchasing your FULL BODY DETOX but not sure if she could take this with the medication that she is taking. At one point, she was on 50 mg of prednisone. That amount has been reduced to 5mg daily. She is also taking diovan and another pill (can't think of it at this time). Can you tell me what herb or combination of herbs will be good for her? With my faith and through God's and mercy, I'm praying for a miracle that her kidneys be restored.

    A:

    THE FULL BODY DETOX WOULD BE THE BEST THING FOR HER. NO MEDICATION IN THE WORLD CAN HEAL ANY DISEASE. GOD/NATURE DID NOT MAKE MEDICINE AND SO THEY ARE INORGANIC AND CANNOT BE ASSIMILATED BY THE BODY, WHICH IS ORGANIC. DO NOT TAKE THE HERBS IF SHE WILL STILL BE TAKING MEDICATION BECAUSE IT WOULD DEFEAT THE WHOLE PURPOSE AND I DON'T WANT YOU TO WASTE YOUR MONEY.

    Q: I read your article; I am so stressed out trying to find a cure for this. I have tried everything possible pills, creams. I don't douche. I need help I had this problem for a year. It goes away for 2 days then it comes back. I don't have an odor it’s just a discharge. I just want the discharge to go away. I feel as though all the medicine I took messed up my balance and that’s probably why the bv hasn't gone away. I need something that is going to help but be safe for me. I know the antibiotics kill my good bacteria. I just need help badly. I don't know what else to do. I am just so lost on everything. I understand what it is and how to works. All I want is for it to go away. I am thinking I just need my balance to go back up or replenish my good bacteria, I am just not sure what to do anymore, also I am trying to change how I eat, is there certain foods I need to eat or drink? Or certain soap or laundry detergent? I just need help ASAP!!!!!!

    A:

    Please read our article â€VAGINAL ODORS AND DISCHARGE†on our site. It is very detailed. Your discharge says so much! It's conveying a message to you. The situation is mostly diet-related. Stop eating meat, dairy, refined grains and starches. Go raw foods (50%) and vegan (50%) immediately. Drink a lot of fruit and vegetable juices. Get colonics and perform enemas (weekly enemas). Give our TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE a try! Read some of our â€ARTICLESâ€! Keep your head up! Don't give up! Most people give up when they are just 3 feet from the gold. The answers you desire always come at the point when you are ready to give up. This is why you found Dherbs.Com! We are NOT the answer, but we can help point you to it! There is healing for you, Beloved! Stop thinking about the discharge and start thinking about life without the discharge. Constant thoughts create your reality!

    Q: I would like to ask if your product for 'Kidney and Bladder' is suitable to use for children. My daughter is 7 1/2 years of age. She has bladder incontinence, she has had urine sample checks and sometimes she has had an infection, she has been given an antibiotic, once this clears up for a while, the incontinence comes back again. Please advice. The doctors now advise her to take Ditopran, a drug which older people use for this condition.

    A:

    Yes, our Kidney-Bladder formula is suitable for children age 7-8. We would actually recommend our Children's Detox and/or our Children's Kidney Formula for your child's incontinence.

    Q: I am a 33-year-old mother of a 2-year-old little boy. I live in Northern, New Jersey. Please recommend a holistic doctor for adults and a holistic pediatrician in the Northern New Jersey area. I also am having issues with fibroids. I had multiple fibroids removed last summer. Yesterday I went to my OB/GYN and had a histosonogram, which the doctor tells me it shows I have one polyp. In my mind I feel that this is something that should have been taken care of when I had the myomectomy. Is it possible they missed this polyp?????or could it have grown since last summer???I am beginning to feel like I am being butchered by the doctor. Please recommend a good holistic OB/GYN in the NJ area. Also, I do not want to have this polyp surgically removed. I read about your formula called FIBROID TUMORS...it dissolves uterine and ovarian fibroid tumors..also FEMALE HORMONAL FORMULA, MOON CYCLE FORMULA, and others. At the moment I am just all over the place... Please help me to save my body!! Also, since the birth of my son I only buy organic whole foods and seafood. HELP!!!!!!

    A:

    Sorry for the delayed response! I am unfamiliar with New Jersey and holistic healers in this State. Check Black Web Portal (www.blackwebportal.com).

    Yes, sounds like they missed one polyp! That's doctors for you though!

    In re Fibroids, we have 3-week Fibroid Buster kit and regimen coming out early next month. I recommend this regimen for your fibroids.

    Q: My 14-year-old beagle has bladder stones and we have chosen to not do surgery due to his age. I was told that there is a liquid herb formula which can dissolve these stones within a few weeks. Is there such a thing and can I get it from you?

    A:

    The herb is called CHANCA PIEDRA; but unfortunately, we do not sell this individual herb, at least individually. However, we now have companion animal formulas and we have a kidney formula (coming soon) that has this herb in it. The formula is coming next month (Dec. 2007).

    Q: Hi, I am a 59 yr old female who has diabetes and weighs aprox. 425 lbs. I also have Lymphedema along with a bad case of tendonitis in my left rotator cuff, as well as kidney disease. That being said, I guess I am a mess! I have tried loose weight and eat normal but after all these years I am asking myself, "what is normal"? I have been thinking about going on a raw food diet but, have no idea where to start! I know it includes salads but, I am sure I will get board quickly eating just that. I also am wondering what does one eat for breakfast other then fruit of which I have to be very careful of because I am a brittle diabetic and am on insulin. I am so tired of failing and want to succeed this time! I want to be able to walk and stand for long periods of time and be independent again. I do have an under-active thyroid and am currently taking 137 mic. of thyroid. Can you send me some information on an anti inflammatory, low protein,low carb. diet? Thank you.

    A:

    I can definitely help you! 

    I run an online vegan health/fitness/nutriton program over skype at www.theveganeffect.com. I have coached many to their best health and have reversed all of the problems you have. Please check out the site!

    Let's go through them one by one shall we? Lymph-edema is a build up of fluid. Your lymphatic system like your liver and kidney are your bodies garbage men. When toxicity gets to overwhelming your garbage men go on strike or are just overwhelmed. You should do a cleanse/detox and do exercises that stimulate the lymphatic system. The best would be a mini trampoline. Just 15 minutes a day goes far. Lympedema is healed by a high alkaline diet. Increasing greens and fruits while decreasing dairy, meat, alcohol, salt, and processed food.

    Tendonitis can be healed also by an anti-inflammatory diet . Increasing berries and greens while decreasing dairy, meat, salt, and alcohol. 

    Thyroid can be repaired also by an alkaline diet and detox. You can find a thyroid support formula at dherbs.com.

    Diabetes is reversed using a low fat raw vegan diet. In 30 days you can completely get off insulin if you cut out the fat and get on a high carb raw vegan diet. The only programs who are actually reversing diabetes are using the same protocol as my program. I do not do a low carb diet especially when reversing diabetes. None of the programs healing your condition do either. Diabetes is not a carb issue but a fat issue. Fat coats your cells and blocks the sugar insulin connection. A low carb diet is a high fat diet and will only manage your condition at best.

    The first of many ebooks I will write for Dherbs is titled "Go Vegan the Healthy Way!" It is being edited nowe and hopefully soon it will be available at a low cost. Look for it on Dherbs. I will email you when it is available as well.

    A typical detox raw food program looks like this

    Breakfast:

    Green smoothie: 1 1/2- 2 cups water / 1 cup greens / 3-5 medium pieces of fruit blended.

    (see "Green Smoothie Revolution" Boutenko for more info)

     

    Bridge: 2-3 medium sized fruits

     

    Lunch: 

    Raw Wraps: collard greens as wraps/ tomato, cucumber, bell pepper / fresh herbs / Sauce (salsa/tahini/guacamole/ etc))

     

    Bridge:2-3 medium pieces of fruit

     

    Dinner:

    Raw pasta: Zuchini sliced with a potato peeler / veggies / Homemade pasta sauce made in blender 

     

    Snack: Sorbet: Blended frozen fruit in a blender

     

    Hope this helps,

    Q: A polyp was found inside my gall bladder, a little over a centimeter, and the doctors want to remove the gall bladder, because it may be cancerous. I have hepatitis C, and with the removal of the gall bladder affect my liver function more, or cause digestive problems. Are there any herbs that can dissolve polyps in the gall bladder? And help with the hepatitis C?

    A:

    Any organ removed that you were born with will impair your health. To take care of the gallbladder, perform the Full Body Cleanse followed by the 10 Day Liver Cleanse. While cleansing drink 2 cups of our Liver, Gallbladder and Sleen Tea. Once you are done cleansing start a daily regimen consisting of the Liver and Gallbladder and Vitamin C Formula.
