I am a woman who happens to be diabetic and now I am pregnant. I would like to know what foods I should eat and restrain from while I am still pregnant. I am also taking insulin to keep my blood
sugar levels low enough as not to harm my baby. They are telling me I need to eat dairy and meat to meet the dietary requirements for a healthy baby. Please help me.

Congratulations on your pregnancy. New life is such a wonderful thing!

We recommend that you drink our Pancreas tea (1-2 cups a day).

Eat plenty of cinnamon, ginger, and cayenne pepper. Abstain from dairy products and meat products. If anything, eat meat-less (vegan) alternatives — you can find plenty in our Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual ($11).

Eat plenty of nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables. You can eat steamed vegetables and brown and/or wild rice (with vegan chicken if you like). Just switch meat for vegan products and switch to non-dairy products or dairy alternatives (which can be found in the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle manual) in order to receive the necessary nutrition without any harmful side effects.

For great nutrition for your baby, we recommend the following Dherbs formulas: PRE-NATAL FORMULA, VITAMIN C FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS, and Iodine Formula.

For natural sugar, try Stevia, Agave Nectar, and/or Grade B maple syrup.

    Q: Hello, I enjoyed reading the information on your website. I have many questions, but my concern is that I am 43 year old African- American female, who would be classified as obese. Last year I had a miscarriage, which was devastating to me though we were not trying to get pregnant. I have a 16 year old healthy son. The doctor wanted me to have a hysterectomy because of my age and reported that I had non-cancerous fibroids. I chose not to as if I have the opportunity to get pregnant again, I would like to carry my baby to full term and deliver another healthy baby. My question is: which would you suggest I do first (as we know, time is a factor)? Should I do the full body detox and then the weight cleanse? I don't want to do the fertility program, but I'm not sure exactly why I lost my baby. I know stress played a major factor (I quit that high-stress job I was on) and after reading your website, realized that weight played a much larger role than I wanted to realize. I'm not trying to actively get pregnant, but because it remains a possibility, I would like to be as healthy as possible. My partner and I broke up shortly after the miscarriage, but have recently recommitted to a relationship again after almost a year apart. I am sorry for this long email, but your opinion would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely

    A:

    First perform the FULL BODY DETOXfirst followed by the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN.

    Q: I am having a hard time getting pregnant. I am 38, did FSH blood- GREAT, HSG- tubes open, uterus clear, Semen Analysis- great.... but no baby. I have a 4 1/2 year old child and I had no problems. What can you suggest? Not good with fasting really- but can you give me some ideas on what to take?

    A:

    It may be your mate, Beloved. Both of you should work on yourselves. Not necessarily "fasting", but cleansing (TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, TOTAL MALE CLEANSE) and then you should perform the FERTILITY CLEANSE.

    Q: MY DAUGHTER IS TAKING ANTI VIRAL AND YONI FOR HPV. SHE THINKS SHE IS PREGNANT, WILL THIS HURT THE BABY IF SHE IS? SHOULD SHE STOP THE HERBS UNTIL SHE FINDS OUT FOR SURE?

    A:

    Our herbs are 100% all-natural and do not harm the body.

    It's up to her if she wants to stop taking the herbs. Herbs are food and not medicine! The herbs are entirely safe! If she is pregnant, then she'd want to start taking herbs that benefit pregnancy, i.e. Pre-Natal formula, Vitamin C, Electric Greens, and Iodine Formula.

    Q: I was recently pregnant, and did not carry the baby full term due to something doctors, call hyperemisis gravidarum. Have you heard of this? How do I go about being healed of this to carry a child full term.

    A:

    We have not heard of this Western medical term. We would recommend that you perform the Full Body Detox, (followed by performing the Total Woman Cleanse and Fertility Cleanse), change your diet (go vegan and/or raw foods), work mental science (order and READ our e-book "The Mental Science" and apply the information), etc.

    Q: I am nine weeks pregnant and having a difficult time. Before I was pregnant I was on an incredible herbal regimen that had me feeling like superwoman. But my herbalist is not very knowledgeable of what herbs are safe for pregnant women. I eat healthy, taken all-natural prenatal vitamins, but would like to do more to get that "Superwoman" feeling back. Is there a book u could recommend that might help educate me as to which herbs are safe and which to avoid during pregnancy?

    A:

    I know the feeling you're talking about. There are many books on herbs and pregnancy.

    Check out these 2 books:

    "Herbal Healing For Women" by Rosemary Gladstar

    "The Complete Woman's Herbal" by Anne McIntyre

    Herbs to avoid while pregnant include all OXYTOCIC herbs or herbs that make the uterus contract, i.e. Black Haw, Beth Root, Black Cohosh, Blue Cohosh, etc.; all ABORTAFACIENT (abortion-inducing herbs) such as Pennyroyal, Rue, etc.

    Study up on abortaficient herbs and oxytocic herbs and you'll be fine.

    Read our article on Pre Natal Health on our site under "Articles."

    You can have a healthy all-natural pregnancy and delivery.

    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: I started taking the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE last week. I was doing ok until Thursday. Let's just say, I've started over. What can I eat other than fruit & veggies and (1) veggie burger. Can I have oatmeal, nuts, and tofu? I'm 39 yrs old, 295 pounds, 5-5" African American trying to have a baby. After this cleanse, I wanted to get on the FIBRIOD BUSTER, would doing so be too much for my body to handle? Also, I have herpes and want to start taking the ANTI-VIRAL FORMULA you have to treat this. Can I take this while pregnant? I'm not currently, but hope to be within the next 3 mos. I get an outbreak once every 2-3 yrs. Help!

    A:

    The diet is very specific so if you are having problems with the diet and feel you need to eat other things; it's your choice to do so. To learn what RAW foods are, read our article "WHAT IS RAW FOODS"? I think it is a good idea to take the ANTI-VIRAL FORMULAafter you perform the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE and FULL BODY DETOX. If you become pregnant, switch from detoxing and concentrate on nutrition.

    Q: I am interested in purchasing your healthy pregnancy tablets. I suffered a miscarriage in August of this year and I just found out that I am pregnant again this week. With the last pregnancy I spotted all the way up until heavy bleeding began and I lost the baby at just under eight weeks. I did have some light spotting this time when I was due to get my period for a few days but nothing like the last pregnancy. Do you have any advice for me on what I should do ? Are the tablets only for if you are experiencing a threatened miscarriage or do you take them regularly ? I was taking Agnus Castus before I conceived but is it true that you shouldn't take it when pregnant? I have discontinued using it. I would be ever so grateful for your advice! What do you recommend? Thanks so much for your time.

    A:

    I'm working on an article about "UTERINE SENSE" at present. Take the HEALTHY PREGNANCYand STYPTIC Formula capsules daily, even if you're not bleeding. Take these 2 formulas for the 1st Trimester. Drink plenty of vegetable juice too. Think positive and reaffirm daily that you can hold to term.

    Q: I am wondering if its possible to still become pregnant, after having an abortion at age 17. I'm now 35, and I have had a cyst removed from the right ovary back in 1999, when I was told my fallopian tubes were blocked. I practice a fairly holistic lifestyle, which I still eat fish in fear of not getting enough protein, but I haven't been pregnant since 1992.

    A:

    Simply perform the Full Body Detox, ( drink female Health Tea while on this cleanse), read our 'Mental Science Manual', and 'Love Manual' which is great reading. The manuals shows you how to use your mind, and heart to heal disease, disorders, and injuries. These are very important tools in the healing process. After you detox, perform the Total Woman Cleanse. After the TWC, complete the Fertility Cleanse.

    Q: I have been a diabetic on insulin for 29+ years. I also have eye and kidney damage. What would be a better way for me to control the diabetes? I have read insulin causes bad things to happen in the body.

    A:

    You don't want to control a thing you do not want. You want to eliminate it! The diabetic medicine (synthetic insulin) has harmed your kidneys and eyes over the years. Your body is telling you to get off of these harmful meds. You may want to try our PANCREAS CLEANSE AND REGIMEN . Also look into our PANCREAS AUXILIARY FORMULA . It is natural insulin precursor. It is 100% SAFE! There is great help for you, Beloved!

    Q: My wife is a diabetic, she has been for 18 years. She takes insulin and she has many other illnesses. I recently discovered an herb call Reishi. It is reported that this is the most powerful herb in the world and is used in the treatment of cancer, lowering blood sugar, regenerating liver, and many other incredible cures.
