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. Here’s an example of some I am taking: Burdock, Yellow Dock,
Sarsaparilla, Kelp, Licorice Root, Oregon Grape Root, Red Clover, Zinc, Copper, Selenium, Calcium, Magnesium, 50 Chlorella tablets 200mg, 10 500mg Spirulina capsules elderberry, echinacea,
goldenseal, vitamin e, gotu kola, american ginseng guarana, dong quai, guggulipid, red yeast rice, hoodia, dandelion, cod liver oil, neptune krill oil, acai, psyllium husks, apple pectin, oat bran
chromium picolinate, wormwood, damiana, st johns wort, 5-htp and pycnogenol not to mention others. They are mostly in gelatin capsules. I am concerned that too much gelatin is bad for me too!

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
Zinc
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 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: My daughter is currently taking Gingko Biloba + Gotu Kola (1 capsule), Magical Alchemical Elixir (2 drops twice daily), Cardio-Vascular Formula (3 capsules), Brain Tuner (3 capsules) and children detox from Dherbs. However, she still experience palpitation + mild seizure (raising of hands) every morning upon waking up. She experience mild fits once a day usually in her sleep/nap and get a severe seizure once every 10-12 days also during her sleep/nap. She was also diagnosed as Asperger Syndrome when she was seven and has improved considerably but not able to focus and easily get irritated. She likes to flipflop her hands a lot and always in wonderland during class. Not able to understand and totally lost in class though she has a very good memory. I also bring her to temple every week to pray and seek spiritual guidance and apply Reiki to her everyday. At present I just do not know what else to do to control her seizure and morning palpitation. Will Epson salt bath help in her epilepsy and anise powder water help in her palpitation. Your guidance and help is much appreciated.

    A:

    Something is going on while she's sleeping (visiting another realm). It sounds like it could be something from a past-life. Consider placing crystals near her bed and under pillow. Crystals such as amethyst, selenite, angelite, quartz, turquoise, black tourmaline, pink or purple lepidolite, lapis lazuli, sodalite, etc.

    Q: Does Dherbs.com use gelatin capsules?

    A:

    Dherbs.Com only uses vegetarian (vegan) capsules made from 100% plant fiber as Dherbs.Com has a policy to not use animal or animal byproduct ingredients in the manufacturing of its products. Gelatin capsules are derived from animals (mostly pig) and are thus not vegan or even halal or kosher. Also, gelatin capsules do not fully dissolve in the stomach like vegetarian capsules. Most herbal companies use gelatin capsules because they are cheap, costing 2-3 times less than vegetarian capsules. Dherbs.Com does not let high prices or expenses stand in our way of bringing people the Best, the Safest, and the Soundest! Dherbs.Com is people first!

    Q: I am curious as to the effects of using these items, Ephedra, St. Johns Wort, and Yohimbe when prostate cancer is evident? Also, can these same items be used safely while taking Ibuprofen, Mucus Relief, and various vitamins?

    A:

    Herbs will not hurt you as they are organic in nature, and there's intelligence involved. These 3 herbs are noble! However, they are not the best herbs for cancer in all honesty. I don't believe in mixing herbs, with drugs because it defeats the purpose.

    I would recommend reading our article on taking medication with herbs.

    Q: What is your opinion on acidophilus, biotin and lutein? Also is gelatin in capsules bad?

    A:

    We prefer the consumption of herbal compounds, as opposed to chemically produced supplements. Instead of taking biotin, lutein, or acidophilus as a chemical based supplement, these things are found naturally in food. Carrot juice and Ginger (capsules) can eradicate the need for acidophilus. Biotin is found in natural herbs such as horsetail, rosemary, and sage. I Lutein is found in calendula (marigold flowers).

    Dherbs uses vegetable capsules, which are preferred. Gelatin capsules are animal derived and difficult for the body to break down (digest), unlike vegetarian capsules.

    Q: I purchased the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN kit. I began taking the regimen of capsules. For breakfast I had water and a banana. For lunch I ate a homemade vegetable soup (chicken broth and veggies). By 2:00 p.m. I began to regurgitate profusely. What did I do wrong? Should I expect to be physically ill after taking the capsules?

    A:

    Chicken broth? That's animal-based! No animal products, Beloved! If you continue to vomit lower the dosage of the capsules from 5 down to 2 or 3 (for a few days and then work yourself back up).

    Q: First of all hello and thank you for the FULL BODY DETOX. I completed the full detox August 5, 08 and found it extremely beneficial, again, thank you. Please let me know your opinion regarding the "Abgone" Extra Strength pill that reportedly promotes pot belly loss (the one issue I continue to confront). I exercise, I do yoga and I jog four times weekly 3 miles. Never the less I still have a "pot belly". I contacted "Biotech Research" and was advised that this is an all natural product. The ingredients are said to be Vitamin C, Zinc, Chromium Polynitic, Phofphatidylserine, Clabcaa, Dandelion Powder, 99% Caffeine, Green Tea Extract, The capsule is made of soybean, beeswax, gelatin, glycerin and red dye #40. Please respond at your earliest convenience.

    A:

    That product ABGONE is crap due to the ingredients. No product is your solution, but the mind (thoughts, attitude), diet, lifestyle, etc. Stop worrying about the pot belly and focus on your desired state. Only see your results in your mind and you will attract the results on the material plane. Please read through some of our articles, beloved!

    Q: I have a question about the "Nerves" Supplement. How do I take this 3X per day without getting sleepy? Since the main ingredient is Valerian root. Do I take all 3 capsules before bed time to avoid this, and does it matter whether I take all 3 at the same time? I'm confused since one of the reviews speaks of taking it as a sleep aid.

    A:

    Simply take all 3 capsules before bed time, or one capsules every 3-4 hours. It's only a sleep aid if the capsules are taken before bedtime.

My question is if I can eat spirulina. and/or Ultimate Meal (mainly is Quinoa, millet, brown rice, yellow pea protein, spirulina and another natural ingredients) as breakfast or lunch. In case you do not know Ultimate Meal you can see it at www.ultimatelife.com Thank you. Ricardo. Your customer service rep told me after full body detox is good to take cholesterol formula. Is enough or Do I need to take lose weight tabs? after the full body cleanse? I am taking care of my diet and exercise 3 -4 times a week 2 hours each with stationary bike or tread mill and exercises with weights.

    Spirulina and Ultimate Meal are excellent supplementary products to take in order for your body to receive an adequate amount of protein while on the cleanse.

    Yes, take Cholesterol Formula (and Intestinal Cleanser) after you complete the cleanse. These products will serve as a transitionary period as your body slowly accustoms to returning back to normal routines.

    Q: Hello, I'm very interested in your Full Body Cleanse programs, but I'm confused, as to what program would be best for me. I have a lot of trouble with taking herbs in pill or capsule form. It's either extremely hard for me to get them down, or they just pop right back up. I was interested in the Full body cleanse in the capsule form, after reading the description on your site, but I don't know if I should buy it in Children's Detox & just take more than the recommended dose (I'm 27 yrs. old), or should I buy the Full Body Cleanse Tea, is the tea the same as the capsules, is it as effective as the capsules? When doing the cleanse can you eat steamed veggies? Will I see gallstones in my poop? How many capsules, how often? Can I open the capsules, & put them in tea? Do you have any advice on vitamins, whole food supplements?

    A:

    We offer a liquid alternative Full Body Liquid Cleanse for those that have trouble swallowing capsules. You may also order the regular Full Body Cleanse and open adn empty the content of the capsules into water or fresh fruit juice.

    During the cleanse, we recommend an all RAW FOODS diet. Vegetables should be eaten raw, and not steamed, as to retain their nutritional content.

    In the Full Body Cleanse (with capsules), there are 6 formulas to take 2-3 hours apart, 5 capsules at a time.

    Q: Sorry to bother you again but you are a wealth of knowledge and I appreciate all your information you give us. I am 44yrs old and have 20 pounds to lose. After I quit taking EHEDRINE I started gaining my weight back. I use to take EPHEDRINE to keep the weight off and no longer am able to order it in my state of Minnesota because it is banned. So I ordered some EPHDRA POWDER in hopes it would do the same for me as the ephedrine did but the ephdra powder doesn't SUPPRESS MY APPETITE like the ephedrine tablets did. I was wondering what I could add to the powder to bring out the appetite suppressant qualities in the ephdra powder. I have tried to brew it with my coffee and that hasn't helped either. I really would like to take this weight off and ephedrine was the only thing that helped me and I pray that your knowledge would help me to lose this excess weight. I bought your thyroid capsules and wondering how long before I will notice any energy difference. (I have a hypothyroid which is probably the cause of the gaining weight but the ephedrine helped me with that also). I pray you can

    A:

    You're giving external factors too much power over you. Things never heal us, only placate us. Truly answers lie within. What did Ephedrine have that God did not put in you? Forget about keeping weight off, instead focus on maintaining your desired weight. Why do you need to suppress your appetite? What you suppress in one area will manifest in another area. Suppression does not heal, only hides things and allows things to grow. Your challenge is to cultivate self discipline and maintain your desired weight. Read my article â€EPHEDRA†under articles. Ephedrine is a damn drug! Drugs don't heal, they only suppress! Nature (Ephedra) takes time! My knowledge cannot help you to lose weight, but only stimulate you into taking control of your own life and health, especially pertaining to weight. Your power lies within! It dos not come from outside of self! The Kingdom of God is WITHIN!
