    Q: My daughter, who is 11 yrs old found a 1cm lump in her left breast 2wks ago. She was referred to a specialist and of course they want to surgically remove the lump. I let a co-worker scan the lump and they think it is a non-cancerous fibroandroma (I do ultrasound myself) and I saw a couple of cysts around the area as well. Of course I don't want the surgery for my daughter. Do you have any suggestions on how to get rid of all the abnormalities herbally? Maybe Yellow Dock tea, but I am concerned about her young age. Maybe a light detox. She started her period already at 11yrs old. Most healthcare professionals say fibroandromas are normal at this age when they begin their cycle due to the hormonal changes. I know better. My daughter drinks about 4-5 cups of purified water (aquavie machine) a day, no red meat, just chicken. Sneaks candy from school and little desserts at home maybe say 4 cookies a day. She gets sugar from natural OJ and Ocean Spray cranberry juice though. I am working on getting her off of sugar completely but it is a challenge. I’ve been a vegetarian for 5 years and am slowly going raw. Always seeking more knowledge. Also could there be a lack of something in her diet? My daughter is lazy and never works out play outside consistently (5'7" and 143lbs) she is tall for her age and is sliming her stomach down almost unnoticeable just a little pudge left. 1 day of PE in the schools. I am yust trying to paint the picture and give you her history.

    A:

    HAVE THE CHILD PERFORM THE CHILDREN’S DETOX EVERY 3 MONTHS. I WOULD ALSO HAVE HER DRINK THE : DETOX TEA AS WELL (EVERY DAY, ONE CUP). SOUNDS LIKE YOU ALSO NEED TO WORK ON KEEPING THE CHILD'S COLON MOVING CONSISTENTLY AS WELL. THROUGH MODIFIED DIET AND NUTRITION THE LUMP CAN DISSOLVE ON IT'S OWN. HOWEVER, DISCIPLINE IS KEY HERE!

    Q: Hi it's me again. I just read what you said about meat and what I don't understand is if meat was not good for us why in the Bible people eat Lamb. How would you explain back in the Bible times during Abraham and Moses when they use to offer sacrifice and kill a lamb were they cruel and going against God. And those who couldn't afford animals like Lamb would use bird eggs. In the book of Exodus chp. 12: 11,21,27,43,48 and Lev. 23:5 and 12:3, Deut. 16:7and Exodus 34:25 when the death Angel was passing and God told them to kill a Lamb and put the blood on the door post and gave the command for them to roast it. How would you explain that because up until this day the Jews still eat Lamb. Even fish, it was fish that God used to feed the 5000 people. Are you saying I can't eat fish at all. I would like to know some of the things you eat in the place of meat , fish and chicken. I really want to change my eating habit.

    A:

    All meat consumption came AFTER the Fall of Man (Genesis Chapter 6). Man can eat meat while in a degenerate state but to return back to Eden he/she must go back to plant foods. Also, meat today is greatly TAINTED unlike meat 4,000 - 6,000 years ago! It's not the same. Jews are not the healthiest people, by the way! Health conscious people are!

    Q: I have had this reoccurring lump that comes and goes under my arm. Usually appearing close to my menstrual. I went to the doctor, and they stated it was do to deordrant causing blockage to my sweat glands. As a precation I went to a more, natural, or less toxic deordant. However I am still having them come and go that time of the month. I find it to be an issue, because this has never been a problem for me in my entire life. I am 30 years old, and would like to be rid of this completely. What is it? I am sure that foods, and toxins caused it. Why am I experiencing this now? And what can I do to be rid of it?

    A:

    Your body is talking to you, telling you that after 30 years of polluting your body, it's now time to undo all the damage. You can heal from this situation. Simply perform the Full Body Detox, and after you perform the FBD, make sure to change your diet. Visit our DIETARY CHOICE section (under More Services on our Home Page), and read up on the vegan diet. It sounds like your menses is stating you need to address, and cleanse your female reproductive chamber too. You may want to perform the Total Woman Cleanse some 3 months after performing the Full Body Detox.

    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."

    It's always your choice, Beloved. Listen to your inner voice!

    Q: Hi. I'm a 39 year old female who had a lump in her breast removed but it came back six months later. So I tried a poultice for three days on it and I don't know what went wrong. Now it"s like my whole lymphatic system leading to my breast is shut off. There is swelling and hardness of my tissue in my breast. I went to a naturopath doctor who said that it wasn't cancer but did not give me any solution to my problem. This has been going on now for three months and I'm very much in distress but I don't want to go to a conventional doctor to have my breast removed. Is there any natural remedy for me?

    A:

    I'm working on a new breast care article at present. Perform the Full Body Detox and rub on our FEMALE BREAST OILsimultaneously. Drinking FEMALE HEALTH TEA is also ideal. Hang in there and think positive. You'll be alright, as long as you believe you will.

    Q: Dear Sir, I was told that you were going to be sending me an email about my situation. I've wrote you a few times giving you bits and pieces of information it seems. I was asking one of your representatives about surgery and from the information I gave him he seems to think that I didn't give you all the information that I should have. Well about 13 years ago a lump formed in my breast after my 4th child was born. For years it's just been there. In 2005, after a mammogram they found calcifications in my breast. They did a biopsy and it came back fine. Six months later they decided that they wanted to remove the lump and when they did they found a small tumor. Since then I've taken herbs and God completely healed me. Well after another six months the lump came back but I didn't want any more surgery so I looked up poultice in my "Back to Eden" book and found a poultice that I used. I mixed flax seed meal, yellow corn meal, and funnelgreek tea together and left the poultice on my breast overnight for three nights. My breast began to get sensitive so I stopped using it. About a week later I noticed that the ducted around my nipple was indented, soon after that my nipple itself went inward, then after that I noticed what I thought was another lump in my breast but over a short period of time the lump extended from my armpit to my nipple. Now that whole area is hard and red. I got an ultrasound done and it revealed that I have swelling and cystic form in my breast. They want to do a biopsy but I am against it from what happened last time. Now I have pain in my arm also and at night I can barely sleep. I am at my wits end and don't know what to do except maybe go ahead and let me cut my breast. I have started your Detox program and I know it's working on my body but I don't want if it's doing anything for my swollen tissue inside my breast. I have lost my concentration because I'm constantly reminded about my breast because of the pain. I am a full time student but I'm thinking about dropping out of my classes until this issue is resolved because I can't focus on anything but the pain right now. I went a different doctor on 10/27/08 and they did a cvc (whatever that is) looking for an infection inside my body. The test came back normal, but my scheduled ultrasound is not for another week and I've told them that I'm in pain and need something done now. But they said that's the first available time.

    A:

    It appears the pain is just too unbearable for you and as such you may have to give in to the surgery in order to get immediate but short term relief. I had a friend who experienced what you experienced and the pain was so unbearable she couldn't sleep. I felt for her and I feel for you. I think you must do what is necessary for elimination or reduction of pain first and foremost. The FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) is helping your swollen tissues, but it seems you mind is so distracted that you are in doubt mode and doubt is the subconscious will to fail. If you know you can't do what you need to do (naturally) to deal with this situation, do what you must for present day relief. You have free will here, Beloved! Please use FEMALE BREAST OIL and Drink FEMALE HEALTH TEA during your FBD.

    Q: My sister breasts are hurting and she does not know why? My sister work in the nursing home and she has to pick up on heavy patients you think that is why her Breasts are hurting and she went to the doctor and they talking about cutting on her cause of a lump what should she do? Peace to you!!!

    A:

    Her breast is speaking to her! Right breast denotes MASCULINE and left breast FEMININE. Masculine means taking on too much responsibilities, working too much to provide. Feminine means lack of personal comfort and relaxation or neglecting one's own personal needs. That breast is telling her to take a break from NURTURING others and to nurture self! Period! She needs personal comfort! She should try the TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE for 3-weeks as a gift to herself. Working in a nursing home she's taking on other people's (patients) energy. Cut the breast off? Doctors are crazy, but not more crazy than the women who allow doctors to cut off their breast. But, to each his/her own!!!!

    Q: I am trying to contact you in regards to my young cousin she is 22 yeas old and is currently hospitalized in relation to her Chron's Disease. She seems to be in pretty bad shape and having numerous flare ups. She also has ulcerative colitis she is dealing with in conjunction with the Chron's disease. Do you think she is in too bad of shape to try and heal this naturally? If not what would you suggest she does? My family is all but given up and thinks she is dying. She is very depressed which I don't think is helping her.

    A:

    It is never too late to heal from any disease the natural route. She has excess mucus in her body causing the flare-ups.

    Try the Full Body Cleanse to help her body eliminate toxins and detoxify the entire system.

    Give her some Aloe Vera juice to drink for the ulcer. Cabbage juice is the best thing for ulcers. Keep her away from acidic foods! Alkalize her diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.

    Q: I have a Rottweiler going on 13 years old. He is in decent shape for his age, maybe a little over weight. He had cancer; two tumors removed twice, and haven’t had any problems in over a year. The problem is that his back legs are weak, he has trouble going up and down stairs (fell down a couple of times), is very slow to get up after laying down, and can not stand up on them for extended periods of time. Also he seems very fatigued. I have been very happy with all of the products I've bought from you so far, so wanted to know what pet formulas you would suggest and what I should expect from them.

    A:

    TRY THE JOINT FORMULA AND THE IMMUNE SUPPORT TO BOOST THE DOG'S IMMUNE SYSTEM. THIS CREATURE WENT THROUGH A LOT. WHEN DOGS GET SICK LIKE THIS IT'S BECAUSE THEY PICK UP THE SICKNESS AND DISEASE VIBRATION OF THE ENVIRONMENT. DOGS ARE VERY SENSITIVE CREATURES.

    Q: Peace, Dherbs.com. I emailed earlier this year requesting advise on problems I've been having with both my stomach and bladder which are still persisting. Around 5 years ago I noticed that my stomach started to swell until it became fully distended and firm (almost like a round ball). I found this unusual because I have always had a very flat stomach and have always been very active, as well as, tried to maintain a good diet. However after consulting with several western doctors non seems to have a clue as to the cause of the problem. Although during one examination a urologist said he could feel a hard lump just under my right rib cage. I am currently due to have an 'endoscopy' but am running out of options if this procedure does not reveal or identify the problem. Regards my bladder, this problem started between 13-15 years old, I am now 36 years. The main problem is that a majority of the time I am unable to urinate normally. Instead it sometimes takes upto 2-3 mins for the bladder to release anything, even when I'm presse, also even when something does come out it's usually in trickles which stops and starts. There is no pain, but it is very frustrating. Also, I usually need to urinate at least once every hour even if I have not drunk any fluid for a long period of time. This tends to cause a big problem if I am not near a toilet for long periods of time, as I then have to hold myself, which can be very uncomfortable. I won't go on hopefully this info will be sufficient for a diagnosis or an idea as to what the problem may be. Either way, any insight that you may be able to help me with into these two issues will be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    We would recommend the Full Body Cleanse and the Female Cleanse. Our Kidney-Bladder-Adrenals can also be helpful in remedying some of ther issues you are experiencing. Once you complete the cleanse, consume this formula to keep with the progress you've made.

    Q: I'm sorry to bother you with these problems, but I?m trying to avoid the doctor as much as possible. Although I had seen (two of them) in the past, but neither were able to find the problem. Approximately an inch and a half above my naval (belly button), there?s a small knot. It's not always sore when I slightly press it...sometimes it is. I even had a couple of ultra sounds performed. Nothing was found. Both doctors (including myself) initially thought it was a hernia. But it ended up not being the case. But it seems like every other week it flares up so bad, it have me bending over (for a short period) only to ease the pain in my stomach. The knot would also slightly protrude. This would continue a few hours. Is there anything you would suggest...besides surgery of course? I?m sure there?s an herb or two that can be taken to rectify this problem. I?m just not able to find it. Now about my brother... He's losing weight without an explanation. He?s been to a few doctors but neither were able to find the problem. He even had an AIDS test...which had come back negative. He sometimes sweat from his face for no apparent reason. When he coughs, it?s sometimes long and aggressive.

    A:

    1. I recommend the 3-week Full body Detox for your navel protrusion which seems to flare up due to acidity (acid causes inflammation). Also get a few colonics performed. Make sure you bathe in sea salt from now on with every bath you take.

    2. In re your brother, a host of things could be responsible for him releasing weight. It could be parasites, cancer, or some auto-immune disorder. I recommend that he too clean his temple (Full Body Detox) and try our Anorexia-Rid formula. A clean body always acts right. Watch your diets too.

    Q: I have been having 24days on and 6days off. My doctor put me on birth control pills, of course I don?t want to take them. I was wondering if I start taking your Herbal Contraception how long will it take for them to kick in and will my cycles be that long again before they start to work?

    The Female Inhaler and Female Tea are also excellent supplementary products that help this problem with your menses (called dysmenorrheal).

    Q: How long does it take for Gingko Biloba to start thinning the blood for those who want to get off of blood thinners? My friend is on blood thinners. He would like to make the switch, but fear the Gingko Biloba may not work fast enough in case of a blood clot, or heart attack occurring. Can he start taking the both for maybe 2 or three days then completely get off the thinners?

    A:

    The person perhaps shouldn't even consider Gingko due to the fear which is damnable. When people are in fear I usually tell them to do what makes them feel good, and remove the fear because if a person does something in the face of fear and a bad reaction occurs, the fear won't get the blame. The herb or other natural thing will. However, for blood thinning effects of Gingko Biloba, take 9-12 capsules throughout the day, i.e. 3 capsules every 3-4 hours.
