I started taking Holy Basil two weeks ago for about 4 days and then all of sudden my supreclavical glands, and the back of my neck have been swollen. I have had blood work done and a CT scan and
they can’t find anything. I was put on Prednisone and a Z-Pac antibiotic but the swelling is still there. They want to wait a week and see what happens but Holy Basil is really the only think I
changed. Have you ever heard of this. I am quite scared but between my two family doctors and now the ENT they are really stumped. Of course when I asked them about Holy Basil they didn’t know
anything about it.

Sounds like the holy basil triggered a healing crisis effect. The holy basil has gotten your attention that you need to concentrate on your gland at the back of the neck. Try Licorice Root tea, 1
cup daily. Gargle daily too with warm water and a pinch of sea salt.

    Q: I have another question, do you have anything without Senna? Senna causes me to have anxiety. I am suffering with this pressure in the middle of my chest that comes from stress. Have you heard of Holy Basil? Please let me know I have used it before when my life became stressful. Do you have any ideas?

    A:

    No ... nothing without Senna (that's strong). We have INTESTINAL JANITOR but that's a fiber formula. I have heard of holy basil. For stress, try our NERVES FORMULA ! I think you'll like it.

    Q: I have purchased and started your FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) but I need your advice. I'm a so-called diabetic, I'm not overweight 5'9" 140lbs. I've read many of your articles including the one titled "Can I take my medication with FBD?" The first day I started the detox, I didn't take my meds and all I ate was fruits and veggies but my blood sugar was higher than it had been in a long time...356 to be exact. So I stopped and started this week, while taking my meds and it's still been higher than normal...in the 200's range. I understand that you stated that the herbs would be working against the meds since they're considered poisons in the body. My concern is this, I want to continue to cleanse my body but I don't want my blood sugar to stay out of control for an extended period of time...for obvious reasons. My question is, what do you suggest I do in continuing this cleanse? Will the FBD regulate my blood sugar levels over the next 2 weeks as my body begins to repair itself? Or should I continue taking my meds until I'm done with the cleanse? I plan to do the pancreas cleanse next. Your advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Peace

    A:

    Like we clearly and unequivocally explain in so many of our articles, the body is and will regulate itself and you will see this via fluctuation. Levels will be up and down and inconsistent. Your body is going to heal in its own way so if you are concerned about high levels for extended periods of time, you may want to take your meds and refrain from taking the herbs until your levels reach a level you feel safe with. You know, religion is not the only thing that requires faith. Healing requires faith too!

    Q: I have been a heavy smoker for eight years and I recently felt the cigarettes start taking a toll on me. Three weeks ago I started having this irritating throat ache, so I starting skipping a few cigarettes. The more smokes I skipped the more I felt my throat getting better. Shortly after I started back smoking heavily again I experienced bronchitis/pneumonia symptoms. Such as Fevers, Soar and swollen throat, congestion, wet coughs, loss of appetite, and a few other symptoms. I immediately stopped smoking. It’s been 6 days now and my symptoms have decreased, but I am getting these nasty night sweats. I am waking up at least 4 or five times a night drenched in sweat. I feel it could be a number of things causing the night sweats such as nicotine withdrawals, my body's immune system going to work and sweating out toxins, and a number of other reasons. I would like to hear your expert opinion on why you think I am experiencing these sweat episodes, that sometimes happened in the day too. Also I took one capsule of Super Milk Thistle 3 days ago.

    A:

    It's plain and simple: HEALING CRISIS (withdrawal).

Initially she was experiencing nausea and vomiting when taking FBD capsules so she decrease the number of capsules now this is her third week on FBD and she is up to 5 capsules every 2-3 hours and she has started to experience the vomiting again also her stools are hard and stuck to her skin. Do you have any natural remedies that would be effective?

    Q: Approximately two weeks ago, I developed dry, itchy patches on my back. Several things changed during this period, I started using Nubian Heritage Shea Butter soap, I starting the Full Body Detox, I received a deep tissue massage in which the primary focus was my back (olive oil mixed with sesame oil). Also I put Oxydrops, in Dherbs Hair Oil, and Healing Skin Oil. I used the Creativity and Abundance Elixirs. Do you think these changes have something to do with the dry itchy patched on my back?

    A:

    Please read the article "Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder" in our articles section. It may be "healing crisis" if the problem started after using natural products.

    Q: I started taking the Yoni Formula for about a week and I've started having an SL blood-tinged discharge, no odor. I am 5yrs post-menopausal and have had moderate cervical dysphasia. I am celibate and I am using the formula to "sanitize". Please advise. I am a registered nurse and know that spotting post menopause is not good.

    A:

    It may not be a good sign, but the activity is good when you understand that the body uses releases from the vagina for healing (expelling) purposes. Now true, the spotting may denote some reproductive problem, but at least your body is speaking to you. A cleansing is going on. That's what herbs do. They cause bad stuff to be expelled. We call it "Healing crisis." Continue to monitor yourself and don't give too much energy to what's going on. It's simply a case of good stuff going in (herbs) and bad stuff (old uterine debris) coming out

    Q: I started bleeding heavily last month & it was a week after my normal cycle had come & gone. My ob/gyn dr. performed a DNC & a procedure called Novasure Ablation. It slowed/lessened the bleeding but it did not halt it. I am still bleeding. I don't have fibroids. The polyp that they found during the procedure was benign. The bleeding cannot be explained as all of my organs appear healthy. My dr. has advised me to remove my uterus. Right now I can't afford a consultation plus herbs but I would like to know if you have any suggestions. I wasn't sure if the female cleanse would be enough. I had been on the lemonade cleanse for 9 days when the bleeding started but of course the doctors said there wasn't a relationship. I came off of the diet a few days after the bleeding started & changed my diet to fish/seafood only, eating a raw salad at least once a day. Some days I eat no meat at all. My mother has osteoporosis due to her hysterectomy at a young age & she has been diagnosed with lupus as well. She's open to a consultation with you & trying to control her health with herbs & diet change vs. traditional medicine. Unfortunately money is an issue with her as well so she won't be able to use your services until sometime in January. Having said all of that I basically just want a recommendation for what you think might help my situation so that I don't have to succumb to this surgery. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    A:

    Change your diet (go raw foods/vegan: no meat, no dairy products, and no refined grains). 2. Perform TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE (TWC) If you can afford it. 3. If can't afford TWC, take MOON CYCLE FORMULA (6-9 capsules daily) and drink 1 cup of MOON CYCLE TEA.

    Q: Back in November 2007 I ate fish (grouper) at a restaurant and later that day I broke out in hives. I've never been allergic to fish before and I've never had hives before. Since that day I've had the hives (7 months), they come and go only because I have been controlling them somewhat now with "Xyzal" (antihistamine). I was given two separate rounds of prednisone (steroid) and I took weeks worth of benadryl. With the steroid I gained 10 lbs. Nothing helped until I started taking Xyzal. My question is I don't want to keep taking the antihistamine for the rest of my life to keep them away. I don't know what it was in the fish or maybe it just was a coincidence that it happened that very same day but I would like to know if there is anything you would suggest to help?

    A:

    You need to cleanse. Take a look at our Full Body Cleanse. You're body is telling you to cleanse.

    Q: This past May my sister started to have really bad asthma attacks and allergic relations to scents, dust etc, and a horrible cough. She was told by her doctor that she had asthma and was put on asthma medication, inhalers, etc. the symptoms got worse, she couldn't sleep because she was up all night coughing, the claritin didn't work, etc. She had been complaining the past week of feeling bloated, her ankles being swollen, not being able to breath when she layed down, etc. She couldn't even walk from desk to desk at work. On the way home last week she went into the Emergency room and was admitted and stayed 4 days. We soon found out that she had congenital heart failure and only 25% of her heart is pumping properly. She couldn't breath because of the water build up on her lungs and heart. The doctors said that the build up of antibodies in her system showed that she had contracted EB virus some years ago and it permanently damaged her heart. She is limited to only 64 ounces of water a day, takes water pills, blood pressure pills, and is not allowed to eat foods high in sodium. My question is, is there any herbs or vitamins that can be used to help her heart? I do not want her to get a pace maker or have a heart transplant. The medications that she is on now make her so weak and drowsy. I know the doctors said the heart damage is permanent, but I just need to know is there anything else that would help naturally?

    A:

    The heart failure is only permanent if you guys (especially your sister) BELIEVE so! What is believed is achieved! It's nothing but medical BS if you ask me!

    To CURE her heart condition, I would suggest she:

    1. Perform the Full Body Detox (absent any pharmaceutical drugs, but it is your sister's choice to stay on them or get off of them)

    2. While on the FBD, drink 2-4 cups of Hawthorn Berry tea

    3. After the FBD, she needs to take CARDIOVASCULAR Formula (3 capsules 2 times daily), CIRCUL-AID formula (3 capsules once daily), and BOWEL MOVER (3 capsules before bed every night).

    Q: I am a 29 year old African American female. I would like to tell you my story and get your advice. Before Sept. 28, 2008 I was a healthy fun loving female but after sept. 28th my health has not been the same. I wake up in the morning weak with nausea and headaches. I went to Kaiser and they said I had a virus and I had to let it take its course. I work with kids and it was hard for me to go back to work because 1. I kept getting sick. 2. My boss was mad that I was sick and not able to work. So I went back to Kaiser and then they said I was sick and had a virus with a mix of anxiety(due to my boss going crazy on me). They said I need to rest and stop being anxious, so I can heal.(well the anxiety is gone) Next I started to get sharp pains in my stomach area(which I have had before on and off for the past couple of years but it would only happen like once or twice a year) but I was scared because the pains we're very sharp and happening like two weeks apart. So Kaiser told me to go see a Upper GI Dr. I went to see one and had an endoscopy done and they found a yeast infection in my throat and that also my esophagus was irritated to but my stomach looked fine. So they put me on Prontiox (for the irritated esophagus and Difucan (for the yeast infection). Well as soon as I finished the medication for the yeast infection in my esophagus, I lost my voice and could not talk for 4-5 days and I still have the stomach pains. So the Upper GI dr. told me the sore throat and losing my voice was a side effect to GERD and that is what I may have. So he asked to up the dose of the Prontiox (so now I am taking 80 mg instead of 40 mg a day). But guess what still having stomach pains and my voice still goes in and out and it feels like something is stuck in my throat and now when I eat, I feel food get stuck in my chest like right in the middle of my breast. So what is going on with me...they have done blood work on me from blood count to checking me for STD's (even HIV) and everything came back normal/negative. And they keep saying all my blood work is healthy...So what is going on and what can I take, because I am a natural person and my system is sensitive to a lot of stuff and I don’t like being on these medications. And now the DRs may think I have IBS..Oh boy Help!! And oh yeah I have had very bad cramps when I have my period and take Motrin and I would like to know is there anything I can take that is sensitive to my stomach... HELP

    A:

    Beloved, first perform the FULL BODY DETOX. Next, perform TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE, and lastly, perform the 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE. These kits will repair your system!

    Q: I have used many of your products - the full body cleanse, the female cleanse, and I completed the respiratory cleanse last month. I felt great during the cleanse; when I got off of it, I didn't feel that I was eliminating as easily or consistently. I had purchased the Intestinal Cleanser and the Bowel Motion and started taking them together in the evenings, but I missed a few days due to travel. I noticed that I felt horrible during the days that I was taking it (and felt better when I was off of it).....my stomach felt bloated and cramped and I had headaches and low energy. I am wondering if the combination is too strong for me. Do you recommend taking only the Bowel Mover, or are you supposed to take both? Is it possible that I have a digestion problem? I also had purchased the Thyroid herbs. Is it okay to take those at the same time, or should I wait?

    A:

    Read our article HEALING CRISIS!

    Herbs don't cause any health problems. They help you to heal from them. You were experiencing healing crisis, which can be unpleasant; but your body doesn't care. it just wants to heal itself.

    I suggest you take these herbs at night right before you go to bed (which is the best time to do so anyway).

    And yes, you can take the Thyroid formula ... but take it in the morning!

    Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com!

    Q: Hello I have been taking the fibroid cleanse for 11 days now i am also doing the Strick Vegan diet. within the 11 days i got my period but did not notice any difference still had a heavy flow & cramps. after my period was gone about 4days later ( and this actual moment) i have been having sudden but yet quick piercing pain on the right side of my abdomen. ( i dont know what that means) questions: 1. should i be feeling any kind of cramping feeling on my abdomen? 2. should i have been still having a heavy flow? 3. can i continue w/the fibroid cleanse after the 20 days? 4. how soon should i go see my GYN doctor for an ultra sound, MRI or cat scan to see if there has been a change? Thank you in advance.

    A:

    The symptoms associated with the breaking down of the tumor can vary as everyone’s body is different. Some people experience heavier or lighter menses, cramps, increase in discharge or no symptoms at all. You should continue with the cleanse until it’s over and perform some of the natural remedies listed in the book, especially the castor oil packs. The same amount of time it took for the tumor to develop should be considered for the breaking down of the fibroid. You can repeat the cleanse or continue with the Fibroid Formula depending on the size of the fibroids. We suggest giving your body a chance to process the changes, getting an ultra sound only monitors the size of the tumor. The diet that you should be following is raw vegan. It’s important for your body to benefit from the foods within the diet. Cooking foods takes out the nutrients and enzymes that are beneficial to our bodies, so eating food in it’s most natural state is best.

    A:

    Your body may have accumulated an abundance of toxins as a result of the prescription medication you are ingesting. We suggest you perform our Full Body Cleanse to purify your body. Your blood is toxic and that's why your skin itches -- the skin manifests the condition of the blood. Purify your blood and major eliminative channels (i.e. liver, colon, kidneys, etc.).

    The drugs were acidic and acid burns (itches)! Basically, your body is acidic and you need to work on becoming alkaline.

    Order the Full Body Cleanse and the Full Body Cleanse Companion and change your condition in 3-weeks or less!

    Our herbs are very potent - the BEST!

    Q: I have been diagnosed with cervical cancer as of 4/01/08. I was referred to an herbalist that basically gave me blood, kidney, colon, essaic, and super antioxidant cleansers. I went to back to the Doctor today and he says that the tumor looks like it has grown and treatments (chemo and radiation) should commence soon as he gets the results of the P.E.T. scan and MIR. Does your company have experience in this area, and if so can you prescribe anything for me. I have appointments for the next 4 weeks with several doctors. I would like by the time 4 weeks is up that you could recommend a product that would shrink the tumor. I look forward to your response.

    A:

    Just know that tumors take time to heal naturally. Chemo and radiation will undoubtedly do you in (cause grave harm to you - guaranteed), so no matter how long it takes to heal, the natural route is the best route to go. Perform the FULL BODY DETOX and then take 5 capsules of ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD 5 times per day and eat only raw foods and vegan foods. Diet change is key!

    Q: I want to know if you have an herb that helps with leg swelling, edema. I had the entire test, I'm not a cancer patient, and I don't have high blood pressure or any known problems for the swelling, other than inheritance. I am doing lymph drainage therapy right now, and yes the swelling will go down some but it comes right back. Do you have herbs to clean the liver and colon? I get colonics every month; I eat organic most of the time and get foot detox baths. Also I work out at least 4 to 6 days a week for no less than 30 min or as long as an hour.

    A:

    YES, PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX AND TRY DRINKING CORNSILK HERBAL TEA AND/OR JUNIPER BERRY HERBAL TEA DURING THE DETOX AND AFTER.

    Q: I started the Full Body Cleanse program on August 25th. Three days later, detox symptoms became so severe that I discontinued taking it on September 4th. However, I want to resume but feel that I need some assistance from you in terms of what might be the best way to do so in order that I can continue with my daily activities. Symptoms of most concern included: uncontrollable coughing, tightness in chest, increased blood pressure and severe headache. When I noted that the symptoms were increasing in intensity, I discontinued taking the Full Body Cleanse herbs,(after 10 days). 3 days after discontinuing the programs, the symptoms have subsided to a degree that I can continue with my daily activities. I want to resume the program but want to do so at a rate that I can function during the day and sleep at night without hours of intensive coughing. What suggestions do you have? About me: I am AA 60 Y.O. female who has been a raw vegan for the past 7 years. My doctor insists that I remain on the following medications: Levoxyl Tab 0.05 mg; Avapro 150mg; and Estradiol patch for thyroid condition, hypertension and menopause, respectively. Noteworthy, I discontinued taking all med 3 days prior to starting Full Body Cleanseand have not starting taking them again. My goal is to be free of such poisons.

    A:

    To continue the Full Body Cleanse, cut dosage from 5 capsules to 2-3 capsules. It is a very powerful cleanse. The symptoms you are experiencing is part of the healing crisis taking place. The herbal supplements are trying to counteract the toxicity in your body, and thus attempting to rid of them via one of your major eliminative channels.
