    Q: Does life come from the eating (chewing) process or does it come from the nutrients absorbed from what we eat? If the latter, would it be possible to sustain life from only ingesting the herbs on your website?

    A:

    Life comes from solar energy. Food is a secondary source! You wouldn't be able to live off of herbs alone, not in America anyway!

    Q: Hello, I just started my 9th day on the FBC. With the exception of the 2nd day I have really had a bowel movement. I usually only have a bowel movement once a week. Should I be concerned? Will this interfere with the cleansing process?

    A:

    Ready for TMI?

     

    Healthy bowel movements are a marker of good health and naturally part of the bodies detox system. Transit time for food should be a day and a half from mouth to anus. Healthy people have 2-3 bowel movements a day. 1 or less indicates constipation. Once a week is a serious medical concern. Food that hangs around becomes toxic and rots. Colon cancer is of major concern if you are not having at least 1 bowel movement per day. I recommend a salt flush to help aid the removal of built up fecal matter.

     

    To do a salt flush you need:

    1 liter of water purified

    2 teaspoons of sea salt or Himalayan rock salt

     

    Drink on an empty stomach. Best done first thing in the morning when you have an hour or two of free time. It tastes terrible but it works. You will have a flush in about a half hour. You could also add some lemon and tiny amount of maple syrup to the mixture to hide the taste. Do not do the flush and then go out in public. Ha! Give yourself time to get it all out. This can be done every season or when you go a day or two without a bowel movement.

     

    Try to avoid salt the day of and after the flush.  

     

    If you have a dog you will notice that after each time they eat within 15 minutes they will have a bowel movement. That is a sign of a healthy digestive tract. 

     

    A way to check transit time is to eat beets. Note the time of eating the food and when the visible markers of red tinted fecal matter shows up in your toilet bowl. 

     

    I eat a 60-90 percent raw, low fat, high carb vegan diet. It is approximately 4pm where I am and I have already had three bowel movements. I average three a day. 

     

    I also recommend watching this video: http://nutritionfacts.org/video/bowel-movement-frequency/

     

    Hope this helps,

    Q: Hi. I am working to improve my life both spiritually and physically. I believe that once my life spiritually is in order all else will follow - abundant health, prosperity, joy, etc. I know that I have a lot of deep emotional scars, some known and unknown that need to be uprooted and diffused. I am currently going through the Sedona Method home course and want to know what else I can do to aid in my permanent emotional releasing process?

    A:

    I think you will benefit from a spiritual consultation, Beloved. Please consider scheduling a consultation so we may interact one-on-one and not via a general e-mail. I am more effective via discovering your vibrational diagnosis. Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.com. Please read some of our free articles too - the ones that resonate with you!

    Q: I just completed the Full Body Cleanse about two weeks ago and started the Pancreas Formula for my pancreas... I don?t have the money for the full kit but after the Full Body Cleanse I?ve notice my blood averaging +-200.....it had reached a low of 124 during detox. I bought cromium and have used it since the onset of detox at about 1200 mcg per day! My Pancreas is a piece of crap!!!!! I haven?t had ANY thing with added sugar or artificial, just green tea with stevia to sweeten it. NO Treats! The only regular food I get now is like lean cuisine type once or twice a day with fresh vegetables or fresh made Veg juice....I had went from 327lbs to 289lbs during detox but since I?ve went back up settling at about 296 and stable. I have cut everything I love out of my life! No Sugar, No Milk Products. About 6 ounces of meat A WEEK eat mostly live vegetables yet I see a Pancreas that needs to be punished for ruining my life!!!!! I try to help it and this is what it does for me! I don?t know what to do next.

    A:

    If you can't afford the full kit or kits, order and drink some of our Herbal Teas to help maintain the pancreas in its normal healthy secretion. Cinnamon Tea can also provide additional benefits.

    We also recommend a daily pancreas regimen of: Pancreas Aid, Pancreas Formula, and Sugar Control.

    Your vegetable juice should consist of GREEN BEAN (Snap pea) and/or BRUSSEL SPROUTS, to help maintain pancreatic health.

    Q: I am a beginner Holistic practitioner. My son who just turned 24 is addicted to pain medication. He started with Vicodin when he was 17 now he is taking OxyContn and Methadone. He said he is ready to get off now, because he sees how it is destroying his life. I know getting off of this type of medication is very hard on the person who will be Detoxing. I really don't want to put him in a in-house detox center, nor do we have the finances to do so. So, I want to have him come stay with me for however long it takes to get him detox. But I want to give him what he needs to lessen the healing crises, the headaches, the other pain that is associated with this type of withdraw. I am not quite sure what to do or where to start or if it is something I should do. I feel that I can help him. But I want to be sure of this. I am thinking this is something that might require a medical physician. Please let me know if it something that can be done at home. And if so, what herbs, supplements and whole foods I should have handy to assist him on his detox process. You expertise is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    A:

    He needs the FULL BODY DETOX and should drink plenty of Licorice Root tea. He can detox at home. Let him bathe in 26-78 ounces of sea salt daily. Let him drink vegetable juice daily as well. Please schedule a health consultation so you can obtain more natural remedies for your son. $100 (for a consultation) is a lot cheaper than a detox center. Please consider!

    Q: Yeah I was wondering when you take the Full Body Detox and then after that the Anti-Viral Kit how will you know when you blood is fully purified because I hear you run and get tested right after you take it and if you wait a week or two it might come back positive because you go back to your old lifestyle in essence you are not providing a cure within a three week period your just starting a process and a lot of people might not can commit to living that life style indefinitely so tell what?s the deal.

    A:

    You will know your blood is pure and that you no longer have a so-called virus when your doctor gives your a print out (readout)! If you wait and go back to your old diet, it really doesn't mean the virus will come back, it only means the test may come back positive because of what you put into your body. It's like an HIV test. If you drink milk or eat meat before you get tested, your result will automatically read POSITIVE because meat and dairy pollute the blood stream and your killer cells increase to fight off the foreign substances (meat and dairy).

    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 my full body detox program yesterday and this morning I stopped into Jamba Juice to get a wheatgrass shot. I also got a pomegranate juice, strawberry, peach and mango drink with a mega green tea boost...I drank maybe about 4 oz of the drink and trashed it. I had the worst headache I've ever experienced in my life! Was it from the sugar in the juice? They claim to be all-natural or was it from the fasting? Would you recommend this establishment for those seeking to get their body clean?

    A:

    It's best to stay on raw fruit and vegetable juices during your detox. Or, try some of the recipes for smoothies, vegetable juice, and delicious herbal teas mentioned and listed in the Full Body Detox Companion ($20)

    Q: I just started the Full Body Cleanse today! I reviewed the recipe section for ideas but I'm either allergic to the fruit or don't care for the vegetable. Based upon the Full Cleanse process, are there any other food combination or recipes I can do? I made the veggie shake but it was 'spicy' not sure why? Is there anything else I can add? I appreciate any guidance you can provide.

    A:

    Could you explain a little further? What do you mean by allergic to the fruit? Do you have certain fruit allergies or getting a reaction to the fruit? 

    Changes in your body are going to occur. Know that your body builds up a culture of bacteria designed to digest your current diet. Your taste buds may have been hijacked by high fat, high sugar, high salt, chemically processed foods. It will take 3 days or more to begin the chance in culture. You will find as your body cleanses your taste buds will be significantly different.

    Q: Dear Yogi, I read an article on your site about reverse Kundalini (anal sex). I don't know if you can answer my question or not - originally I was going to pose it to "Ask the Guru", but in my limited understanding, Kundalini is tied into yoga. I have been trying to get balanced by meditating, living my passions, writing, art, and belly dancing all unprofessionally, except for the first one (on a very small scale). I have been doing guided chakra meditations and other things, including yoga, and some dietary modifications. I feel I am gradually growing and living my purpose. However, incrementally starting in my mid forties. Anyway, I have been on this path for a couple of years now, and have more happiness and peace than I ever have. I don't want to get into a lengthy essay about my limited understanding of Kundalini, and the possibility of what I perceive is going on with my body (though I am very healthy) right now, so I will attempt to get to the point. I am grateful for my life. I have much more than many people if I were to measure. I feel like I am still blocked, though. About three years ago I dated a guy who sodomized me one time. He was a rapist, long story short and an error in judgement on my part. Though my intuition was screaming at me the whole time. I look at the experience as pushing me further along my path and teaching me to trust, love, respect myself, and defend my boundaries. What concerns me is that I feel that experience is still trapped within me to a degree, and I am worried that it will manifest into a disease. Often when I meditate on my root chakra I start crying. Part of me believes that I can't force anything, just have to let the process unfold in its own time. There is so much info out there that I find it overwhelming, and it is hard to know which to trust. So I have just been going with what resonates with me as far as technique. If you could offer me any advice, I would be grateful.

    A:

    Hello, I would like to first thank you for sharing your story and your experience. It sounds like you are devoting time and attention to the many things, that will help foster a sustained health and healing for you in life. As you have recognized, it is very helpful for us to take intuition very seriously and to honor this innate ability to discern whether a situation will be harmful or beneficial to our growth and experience as humans. Very often the circumstances and challenges presented to us in life, as happened in yours, serve as great teachers in allowing us to witness our own great strength, compassion, and value. I am glad to hear that you have been able to take the very difficult situation you found yourself in and use your experience to create a better understanding of yourself in the process. While it is true that we tend to develop patterns of holding and habitual ways of holding tension within the body; this does not mean that there are not steps you can take to move through such a body, mind, and spirit experience. The fact that you are crying upon meditating on your root chakra is a sign that you have made yourself available to the grief that naturally accompanies traumatic situations such as the one you experienced. Keep in mind that when we deeply grieve, our bodies are able to express the energy that may have potentially been repressed during this experience. The energy of the root chakra is all about our ability to feel safe, strong, and supported. The violation of this energy can leave one feeling ungrounded and striving for our self-preservation. Try not to become fixated on the worries you are having about the experience arising as disease in your body, as worrying can lead to increased levels of chronic stress, which will potentially create an internal environment more vulnerable to disease - which is what you are trying to avoid. It might be nice for you to meditate on your right to be here, to exist on this planet, and to be valued. It may also be very nice for you to take some restorative yoga classes, which can be grounding and stimulating to the parasympathetic nervous system (assists in the healing process). Recognize that the body may be holding energy in a direct response to a real threat, but begin to create a safe, loving and supportive environment to allow yourself to begin to be able to let go of this holding as you feel safe. When working to heal the first chakra, it is helpful to get in touch with the direct experience of the sensations of the body and become aware of the physical experience of the body. This can be done with the assistance of an expert, to help you change the physical expression of your felt experience. We could also do something called "body dialogue" to put you more deeply in touch with what the physical expression you are experiencing has to teach you about how you are inhabiting the world you are in. There are also many forms of grounding exercises which can help to balance the first chakra. If you are interested in being lead through a series of guided meditations, please contact me at megan@ritualwellbeing.com. Namaste, Megan

    Q: I just completed the Full Body Detox and it was a great experience what do you suggest I do to keep up the detox process?...without going through the complete detox again. I would like to maintain what I've started

    A:

    Thanks for the question. The best way to continue the detox through diet is to follow a low fat, 60-90 percent raw diet. When you give your body whole plant foods that are low fat it can digest and utilize the food fast. The quick processing will aid your body and free up time and energy to continue the detox. 

     

    I suggest getting the book "Beauty Detox Solution" by snider, "Crazy Sexy Diet" by Karr, or "80-10-10" by Graham. I also invite you to invest in your future health by taking the Vegan Effect Health coaching program. To know more visit www.theveganeffect.com. I do free consultations over  skype if you want to know more.

    Q: I have 2 more days left on the Total Woman Cleanse. I also completed the Full Body Detox in January. I started my cycle a couple of days before starting the Total Womans Cleanse, which lasted approxy 5 days. When my cycle stopped, I began to experience spotting everyday (which I understand is apart of the cleansing process). However, my cycle started again and has lasted for 4 days now, and I experienced some clots and heavy bleeding. I've also been feeling fatigue, as a result of the continuous bleeding. I've had problems with my cycle for several years, and I'm really seeking help in resolving the issue(s). I've had a couple of DNCs, over the past few years which have come back okay (praise God), but I also have an enlarged uterus. I was thinking about ordering the Yoni Formula, Moon cycle, Female Tea, and liquid iron. What do you suggest?

    A:

    Don't be frustrated, Beloved! It will only block you! Consider ordering and reading our "Mental Science Manual" and "Love Manual" and APPLY the principles so as to help you remain positive, calm, and optimistic about your healing. Listen, after the Total Womans Cleanse, perform the Full Body Detox, and then (after you finish the FBD) start taking the Moon Cycle (formula and tea), Female Hormonal Formula, Yoni Formula, and Styptic Formula. Your body is regulating itself. Trust the natural process! Your body is undoing all the harm you did to it, so be patient, and understanding of all that your body has to do on and for your behalf! Okay? Stay positive! Your body is your humble servant!

    Q: I was online searching for some natural treatments for hair growth in Black Men when I came across your article. I must say that I believe it was so on point that I decided not to look any further. I'm 44 years of age and started noticing my hair thinning when about 12 years ago. I was one of those that you wrote about in your article chasing a lifestyle that is no longer an interest to me. I did fall into some bad habits that were not good for my health off and on over the past 15 years or so more off than on. My body type I would describe as athletic. I'm tone, and strong when I exercise regularly. I'm about 150lbs @ 5'11". My diet is mostly vegetables but from time to time I feel I have to eat fish or chicken. Not necessarily prepared in the healthiest way I'm sure. I just got out of one of my "on" spells so to speak. Meaning the drinking of beer and cigarettes. I've been smoking and drinking beer now since September 2006 after not having done anything but live healthy for six years before that. As soon as my wife and I came back to the states and started working and runnign again these old destructive habits appeared again in my life. I only blame myself though. Right now my hair and skin suffer from the chemical poisoning from the habits that I just mentioned. I am prepared to take your advice about righteous living to heart and start fresh again. Is there a mild remedy that can work with me to stimulate the re-growth of my hair in the spots where it is balding in that classic balding pattern? I am generally very healthy when I doing right and even now rarely get sick. But my sickness manifest in stress and bad habits to num the pain of having to live this way when don't really want to. I quit the job that I've been working for the past 4 years for that reason and have been blessed to have some time not to grind everyday chasing after money. Now is a crucial time of healing for me, and I must take full advantage of the time. Moderation is in order for whatever you can suggest for me in the way of herbal remedies. I am sure that you can prescribe a simple overall regiment for my overall health based on what I have shared with you with an emphasis on the hair and skin. Again, thank you for writing the article. Call or write. The sooner the better.......Thank You!!

    A:

    I would say first detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and get your diet right CONSISTENTLY! Constantly clean your temple! This is key! Next, perform the TOTAL MALE CLEANSE. After this, do a daily regimen of HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, KHEMETIAN GOLD, and MSM SULFUR. Forgive yourself of past self-inflicted harm! Stop worrying about your hair loss. Start visualizing your hair growing back. If you can see it, you will achieve it! The mind is all and problems and remedies begin in the mind! BTW: we offer phone consultations if you're interested.

    Q: My hair has finally started to grow and I have split ends. My hair has started to grow because I have decided to grow my hair naturally. Theses spilt ends are wrecking my nerves. How do I repair them with cutting off about 2&1/2 inches of my hair? I would prefer to use food products.

    A:

    BELIEVE IT OR NOT, SPLIT ENDS REFLECT THE HEALTH OF THE OVARIES. YOUR HAIR TIES IN TO YOUR REPRODUCTIVE AREA. FEED (NOURISH) THE SEX GLANDS. CONSIDER PERFORMING THE TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE BUT ALSO CONSUMING FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SPECIFIC HERBS (VIA TEA, CAPSULES, OR EXTRACTS) DAILY. TAKE AS MUCH MSM SULFUR AS YOU CAN. THIS IS GREAT FOOD FOR THE HAIR AND KEEPS THE HAIR GROWING. TO FIX SPLIT ENDS, WORK ON YOUR OVARIES.

    Q: Hi, I'm a 51 year old black woman. I have been living with chronic pain for the past two years. I had several medical tests without any definite findings. There has been some talk of MS. My feet, legs and back hurt all the time. I ordered the female detox but upon reading it seems that I need the total body cleanse. Please let me know of anyone the Columbus, Ohio area that may be able to assist me.

    A:

    I would recommend the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) and then you should see chiropractic for the pain. The FBD should help with the pain though.

    Q: I was told by doctors that I have to go to surgery to replace severe valve leaking, eventually could damage lungs. Immediately when I left hospital I ordered the Full Body Detox, and started a juice diet, and almost raw fruits and vegetables. My question is, can this damage be reversed with a healthy lifestyle, and food? I am very anti doctors, and hospitals. I am not sure this can be reversed to avoid surgery. I know doctors, and hospitals they want insurance benefits. I will really appreciete your advice. Thank you so much, for all I had learn with you herbs, and advice really you changed my concept of living and my family as well.

    A:

    I would suggest you perform the Full Body Detox and eat raw foods and drink vegetable juice. After the detox take Cardiovascular Formula, and Circul-aid Formula.
