My six year old was just seen by the ENT today, I was told that his hearing loss is getting worse and that he needs tubes to be put in his ears. He has also had several cases of strep throat, so
the ENT is wanting to remove his tonsils as well. He is scheduling the surgery for three weeks away, and I was just wondering if there is an alternative to have the surgeries? Please write me back
and let me know your feelings on the matter. I’m concerned about him being put under. I really don’t want it to be done, unless it’s absolutely necessary. Thank you

I’m never pro surgery until everything natural has been done! First, experiment with an improved diet. Read our “Ear Problems” article for starters. Make sure to get a few ear coning sessions
done.

    Q: My question is a 2 part question. My daughter has Trisomy 21 and has tubes in her ears. Her ear canals are very small and her ears are normally developed. She is 18 months old and I was wondering if it would be okay to do Ear Coning and would this affect the ear tubes? The second question is what causes the tonsils to enlarge (cold/infection)? Is there a product that can be used so that she can keep her tonsils?

    A:

    It's too early to perform ear coning on her (unless you can find very small cones). Wait till age 2. Give her ear drops! Enlarged tonsils are inflamed due to mucus buildup. Product or no product, you never allow anyone to remove what God gave the body. However, there are many products. Give our MUCUS BUSTER TEAa try. Put it in a bottle and give to the child. You can sweeten it a little with maple syrup.

    Q: I just ordered ear oil for my 2 year old daughter. She is experiencing temporary hearing loss. We were told by the physician that it could be partly due to wax build up in her in one ear and the pressure in the middle ear of both ears are slightly higher than what it is suppose to be. What would you suggest as a remedy to this problem?

    A:

    Get her ears "candled" or "coned" (see "EAR PROBLEMS"article on our site). It's the best procedure for removing excess ear wax buildup - guaranteed!

    Q: I have a question about my tonsils. I had tonsillitis as a child. The last time I had it at the age of 12 my right tonsil remained somewhat swollen. It developed crypts but has not otherwise bothered me until recently. I am now 28 and about a month ago both my tonsils swelled up completely, so much so that I could barely swallow. I took Penicillin for about 8 days, which seemed to bring down the swelling. About a week later it returned. I took amoxicillin for 14 days with the same results. I have taken a strep test and mono test, which have come back negative. I am at a loss, my tonsils are currently quite swollen but do not inhibit me from eating or drinking or swallowing right now. I am concerned about a flare up however, and would like to know what is causing this condition. Could you recommend something to help me with this problem? Also I was wondering about possibly a tonsillectomy, what are your thoughts on this procedure?

    A:

    SWOLLEN TONSILS MEANS YOUR SPLEEN IS BACKED UP DUE TO TOXICITY. YOUR BODY IS TELLING YOU TO DETOX!!! ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS PERFORM A GOOD CLEANSE. YOU DO NOT NEED YOUR TONSILS REMOVED. HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT WHY GOD GAVE YOU TONSILS IN THE FIRST PLACE? WHY REMOVE WHAT GOD GAVE YOU? YOUR DIET AND LIFESTYLE CAUSED THIS PROBLEM. PERFORM THE FULL BODY DETOX AND CHANGE YOUR DIET AND YOU WILL BEGIN TO HEAL.

    Q: In less than a year, I had two miscarriages with there being a fetal pole, but no heartbeat. Both babies died between 7-8 weeks. My last baby, I had an emergency c-section. During that time (either before or afterwards), I had a major infection in which I was given antibiotics for 4 days. Then once the infection was gone (so they say), my blood pressure went up. Because I am not a medicine taker (especially since I had hypertension with the two pregnancies before the last one and the medicine never worked), I refused to take the ONE pill that they say would make my blood pressure go down. Today, my pressure is pretty stable. Anyway, I was wondering if you think that the miscarriages have been caused by the infection or is there something still wrong with my body due to the c-section. What do you recommend that I do in order to get my body back so that so I can safely and fully carry another baby to term if it happens again that I will get pregnant? I can't lose another baby. I will be totally devastated. By the way, neither I nor my husband wants to do birth control. I don't want to have my tubes tied because I believe there are some underlying negative causes that can effect the body and I particularly do not want to put anything foreign in my body, i.e. IUD. I have been told that I cannot take Birth Control Pills due to my history with hypertension. What can I do?

    A:

    The miscarriages are more spiritual than anything. Babies have no soul until after birth, so until birth, you only have biological entities forming in your body, so you are dealing with physical health problems. You need to work on strengthening your reproductive system. Evidently you system is weak. The C-section was unnecessary and doctors did it to make money. That's all. You don't do a C-section for a fetus of 7-8 weeks. That's ludicrous! Antibiotics? Those things are dangerous and are still in your body until you detox. The poisonous drugs they put in your body caused the Hypertension. Beloved, here's what I would recommend in your case: first perform the FULL BODY DETOX that will target all of the above. After this, perform the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. After this cleanse, perform the FERTILITY CLEANSE (which is optional in your case). You don't need birth control pills or any foreign device in your body. Just change your thoughts (see yourself pregnant, holding/nursing your baby), develop a healthy attitude (that you are worthy of holding a baby to term). Change your diet (vegan is best, eat more raw foods; fruits and vegetables). Drink Dherbs FEMALE HEALTH TEA daily. Remove all fears that you cannot hold a baby. Remove all thoughts about a 3rd miscarriage and how you will be devastated as you are setting yourself up for this by the very thought. Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com

    Q: I have a question? I am hearing a loud cricket like song in my ears what can I use to stop it, my doctor told me there is no cure. Someone told me to use warm garlic oil, it drives me crazy at nights and all day I can hear it, hoping to hear from you soon.

    A:

    Sounds like an acute or heightened form of tinnitus.

    Try getting your ears coned a couple of times. Ear candling is very helpful in ear disorders.

    Also, give our eardrops a try. Pretty potent formula.

    And what you really need to do is detoxify your body.

    Metaphysically, ear disorders mean you are failing to "hear" something you need to hear or refusing to listen to so your ears are getting your attention so that you may tune in!

    Q: I noticed about a year ago while showering that there was clump protruding from my vagina. I visited the Dr, and was told the walls are weak. I was given a pessary, and told to do kegels. Is this happening because I had surgery removing my uterus? Is the absence of the organ is causing a lack of support in that area? Is there anything I can do to change the condition without surgery?

    A:

    You hit the hammer on the head on the nail. That's exactly what's causing your challenge, Beloved! I recommend use of mental science (see our "The Mental Science Manual" e-book), perform Kegels exercises, as well as anti-gravity exercises (legs up higher than the head so blood flow can rush down to the head), etc.

    Q: My 14-year-old beagle has bladder stones and we have chosen to not do surgery due to his age. I was told that there is a liquid herb formula which can dissolve these stones within a few weeks. Is there such a thing and can I get it from you?

    A:

    The herb is called CHANCA PIEDRA; but unfortunately, we do not sell this individual herb, at least individually. However, we now have companion animal formulas and we have a kidney formula (coming soon) that has this herb in it. The formula is coming next month (Dec. 2007).

    Q: My sister went to her doctor today because she has been suffering with prolonged bleeding during her period, severe pain and wanted to know what is happening to her. Her doctor examined her and saw that she has huge fibroids, which could not allow her to see her uterus. She told her that she would have to remove her womb and her ovaries as a solution to her situation. I am writing to you because I know that you have a remedy that she can take so that she does not have to remove her womb. She is so concerned right now and thought that you would be able to shed some light on her situation. I don't know for sure! Everybody is different!

    A:

    Have her: 1. Change her diet (go raw foods/vegan vegetarian) 2. Perform FULL BODY DETOX 3. Perform FIBRIOD BUSTER CLEANSE AND REGIME 4. Perform TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE

    Q: I have a 13 year Rottweiler who is having a lot of trouble with his hind legs. A couple of weeks ago he slipped and fell, and couldn't walk because he couldn't put any weight on his back legs. I took him to the vet and they did an x-ray that showed that he had 2 herniated discs in his spine which were cutting of the nerves to his back legs. They said surgery is not an option for a dog of that size and age so they gave him a steroid shot and medication to give to him every day, and said if that didn't work I should probably put him down. Luckily the medication worked because he's up and about. His back legs are still a little weak but he does get up and move around pretty decent when he needs to. My question is if any of the pet products you have will help. I know the medication the vet gave is only a temporary solution and the vet told me that this is expected for a big dog at this age, but I would appreciate your input.

    A:

    I recommend the following formula: CAT AND DOG JOINT, BONE, AND CARTILAGE FORMULA

    Q: After the laser surgery last year, I have been taking the Eye Formula for high pressure 4 months now. I take 8 tablets a day and I use the an MSM Eye Drops and my pressure drops and my eyes feel very healthy. The doctor told me come back in a year, but about a week ago I started to feel pain in my eyes sometimes sharp sometimes less but all the time. Please advise.

    A:

    Double up on your eye regimen! Eat more blueberries. Take extra capsules of Eye Formula, etc. It would be a good idea for you to perform the Eye Kit. The Eye Kit includes six distinct formulas that are created with the intention of helping your body maintain, restore, and fend off any pending eye issues. These formulas not only are meant to help nourish, repair, and strengthen the eyes, but they also are meant to help maintain a healthy circulation throughout the body.

    Q: My wife has had a lump underneath her tongue for the last 4 days. She visited the doctor today, and they told her it was a blocked salivary gland. Of course, they prescribed an anti-biotic, and told her if it did not work, they would recommend her to a specialist. My wife just entered into her thrid tri-mester which makes us skeptical of the anti-biotics, aside from that not being how we heal ourselves anyhow. I did some research about blocked salivary glands and I'm concerned. Are there any alternative treatments, therapies, herbs, or acupuncture, that will help her with this?

    A:

    These damn doctors prescribe antibiotics for every damn thing under the sun. Have her perform the Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse (which is very safe during pregnancy). Have her drink vegetable juice daily too! She can detox for the problem (blacked salivary glands) but the cleansing needs to be subtle. Check out the new Dherbs.com article coming out this week entitled "Salivary Glands Complaints."

    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.

    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 am 22 weeks pregnant and in the hospital on bed rest with Preeclampsia. Today I was told that the protein in my urine was up to 9 grams from 2.1 and my platelet count has dropped from 180 to 130.

I have been on a regimen vitamin c, primrose oil, hawthorn berries, calcium, omega fish oil, magnesium and potassium and that seemed to work for about 4 weeks. Now things have just gone bad.

    Q: Hello... the doctor told my sister that my 1 year old nephew has a heart murmur and that they will check again in 3 months and if it does not go away they will have to proceed with medication etc. I told her not to give him any doctor prescribed medication but I was not able to find any information regarding heart murmurs in children on your website, please provide some insight.
