Is it safe to take “alfalfa and devil claw,” without the gel-capsules? For instance, pour it’s contents into water, or a soft drink.

Answer by Dherbs

Public

Both alfalfa and devil claw are plants that are commonly used for health treatments. As long as the supplements are natural you should be able to empty the contents into freshly squeezed juices, smoothies and herbal teas. Most gel capsules are simply just to mask the taste of the contents.

    Q: I love to drink water, but I like to drink hot water you know boiling water slightly cooled. Is there a benefit, or disadvantage to this compared to drinking room temperature water? Secondly, the water I drink is boiled water. Alkaline water is not a privilege most Kenyans have. If 56% of the population is living below poverty line you do the math. So the water I drink is tap water, that I boil to make it safe for drinking. When I get to work I have Alkaline water as my work place provides me with that provision. I think this is detailed enough for you to get the picture and help. Once again (I love you) in Swahili for spreading the gospel!

    A:

    No difference at all, Beloved! Even the boiled water becomes room temperature water. You're doing fine! Thank you for your words as well! Much appreciated! Peace and Love!

    Q: Lately I have found myself taking cleansing herbs like Alfalfa, at night, is that Ok, or should I take the Alfalfa in the day. The reason why I take cleansing herbs in the night before I sleep, is because I thought that I would not be eating food, and I would be sleeping, so those 2 activities, I presume are cleansing. Can I take the FIBRIOD BUSTER at night, because they are cleansing herbs. I take the iron phosphate in the day.

    A:

    You're doing just fine, Beloved, with your regimen!

    Q: Liquid verses capsules; Which one will allow more weight loss?

    A: The difference between the capsule version of the Full Body Cleanse and the Liquid Cleanse is within its potency. The Liquid Cleanse is less potent due the extraction of herbs being converted from plant to liquid form. This information is included on the product page of the Liquid Cleanse.  The capsules are always going to produce better results.  You can exchange the product if you like, it would need to be within 15 days of receiving it.

    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: 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: Could you tell me if the herb kota gola is safe to take. I was told that a lot of it comes from India, and that there may be a lot of toxins in it because of the way it is grown and harvested. Do you know if it is grown in the United States and what supplement companies are selling it? ex: Swanson or Puritan's Pride, etc. brand names.

    A:

    Gotu Kola is very safe to take and one of the best herbs you could ever take. It's the best herb for the brain and brain function. India doesn't have the toxins like the United States does. There's nothing to worry about! Take it from me!
