What type of exercise is good for working out while on the Full Body Detox program? I’m afraid I won’t have much energy and stamina for a high impact workout on a raw food diet. Any suggestions???

Answer by Dherbs

Thanks for the question,

 

Exercises recommended:

·        Yoga

·        Light resistance training

·        Walking

·        Biking

·        Swimming

·        Trampoline

·        Pilates

·        Aerobics 

 

It’s best to keep exercise to a minimum. When you exercise your body pulls blood away from your core and into your limbs (fight or flight response). That directs blood away from your healing response. Also high impact or weight training requires more calories and more protein which will over work the organs that should be using their energy healing.

 

Hope this helps,

    Q: Can I do a 45-minute cardio while doing the Full Body Cleanse? The Doctor claims I am a Type II Diabetic and I have decided to cleanse and then do the Pancreas Cleanse as well. I want to workout to tone up!!! Just wondering if I will have enough energy to continue to workout...I am doing cardio 4 x a week for 45 minutes.

    A: You can still exercise while doing the cleanse, but we suggest only engaging in the light cardio instead of any intense workouts.  Because you're on an adjusted diet that consists of mainly fruits and vegetables, you may burn through the foods faster as opposed to when you workout while consuming carbs or starchy foods.  You can drink Green Tea for a boost of energy or consume raw foods that provides a natural source of energy.  Foods that provide you with more energy include bananas, spinach, citrus fruits like grapefruits and oranges, apples, almonds and lemons.

    Q: I recently completed the Full Body Detox, which I loved. Now, 2 months later, I am very interested in the weight release program. Last year, I lost 40 lbs in 8 months, in the most healthy way (good nutrition and exercise). This year, I slowly started gaining weight back, and 1 year later, I continue to gain weight much more quickly. I am still working out regularly, and eating well. Would you recommend the Weight Release Kit? I am looking to take off 20 lbs at the most. Is that realistic for this formula? However, I want to build muscle and strength as well. Can I maintain the results of the program with the directed nutrition plan, and add white meat for protein (chicken, turkey, tuna). I am also wondering if the formulas simply release excess weight, or can I expect to lose inches and lower my body fat percentage? Thanks for your time and dedication to natural health!

    A:

    Glad to hear about your success with the Full Body Detox!

    I would highly recommend the Weight Release Kit and Regimen. NO MEAT though! Try vegan alternatives if you must have something - but no meats!

    You will release weight (waste)! Your weight is nothing but waste!

    Q: I just purchased the FULL BODY DETOX and I have a question. I work a full time job (office work) and a part time job (cleaning). I'm worried if I will be able to work while doing the detox, I also workout (weight lifting) and with eating raw foods and no cooked food, I'm wondering if I will make it the 3 weeks doing this. I want to detox my body but I'm wondering if I can eat anything else (fish, chicken, baked of course). Can you give me some suggestions on what I can do or do you think I can do my normal things and still be on the detox?

    A:

    The human mind can make or break you based upon its conditioning! Just take the cleanse one day at a time and FIND OUT for yourself what the reactions will be. You're all in the future worrying! One day at a time! One day at a time! Take things one day at a time. Read the article â€WHAT IS RAW FOODS†because you're asking about cooked foods and prohibited foods (animal flesh) which the kit clearly states should be avoided for 3-weeks. Always THINK positive in life about everything. Your thoughts create your reality!

    Q: I would like if I can continue working out (taking creatine & protein)because I just started the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD) program?

    Q: I am interested in starting the Full Body Detox program. At this time, I would like to know which program is best for me. At current, I have started removing things from my diet as of 2 weeks ago (pork, chicken, red meat, I'm trying with the fish but it's hard!) I am not eating cheese but I still eat yogurt and every now and then I will eat a boiled egg (egg whites). I have removed soda from my diet, no coffee, I drink herbal or green tea, pomegranate juice or orange juice and I drink filtered water (I have a countertop filter that I change every 6 months and the Brita pitcher that I change every 2 months). Along with the supplement, is there an eating plan that you can suggest for me? I am eating more fruits and vegetables, but I would welcome suggestions on certain foods that I can eat while I begin my cleansing.

    A:

    The Full Body Detox kit comes with a prescribed dietary plan and notifies a person what they can and cannot eat during the detox.

    Q: Hi I completed the FULL BODY DETOXlast week. I could have done better because I cheated a couple of times but I did lose 10 lbs and the type of cystitis I have (eosinophillic Cyctitis - which is caused by eosinophils in my bladder that have caused an ulcer type lesion in my bladder that will not heal) felt about 50% better. However, a couple of days after completing the full body detox all my symptoms came back, blood in the urine (from the lesion), pain (primarily for hours after I urinate, by the time the pain subdues its time to urinate again so it becomes a cycle of pain), along with infection type sypmtoms (cloudy urine, inability to hold). My primary question is, how long to do I have to wait to do the detox again? What else do you recommend that my help heal this issue that I have had for over 10 years. I was on antibiotics indefinately because they seemed to ward off bladder infection. Anything you can suggest would help. I thought if was on the detox program for a longer period of time I may heal.

    A:

    I would suggest performing the FULL BODY DETOX again RIGHT NOW! However, when you perform it this time around, please drink one or all of the following teas: Juniper Berry, Uva Ursi, and Cornsilk. You have an issue with your bladder. Drink bitter/unsweetened cranberry juice too during the cleanse. Drink vegetable juice (with celery, parsley, and asparagus). I am also going to recommend you take KHEMETIAN GOLD in every glass of water during the detox.

    Q: As a diet controlled diabetic I question being able to change my diet(to raw/live foods) while I keep up the same rigorous exercise and fitness program without suffering from too many low readings of which I am prone.The program has gotten me off insulin.I also have diverticulitis and seeds and nuts have been a problem for me in the past. Any suggestions?

    A:

    Thanks for the question. I hope this helps. If you are under a doctors supervision I am forbidden to give you any advice that may alter a doctors advice. They have little to no nutritional training but their word trumps everyone. 

    What I can do is point you in the direction of programs getting the results you desire. Those three are Dr. Neil M. Barnards "program for preventing and reversing diabetes" (DVD,book), Dr. Gabriel Cousins "Raw in 30" program (DVD) and "There is a cure for diabetes" (book), and recently The Gerson Therapy has released a program for diabetes (book). 

    The common denominator in all three programs is a low fat vegan diet. The differences are that Barnard's program is a cooked vegan diet while Cousins' and Gerson's program are raw. All get results but the raw programs have a 75 percent success rate in 1 month where as the cooked version of Barnards get results in 6 months. Big difference.

    I have gotten people off of insulin in around 2 months using a high raw and low fat vegan diet. I use no oils and nuts. I do encourage avocados and seeds for fats. However, with diverticulitis you must avoid seeds until your body repairs itself through a high alkaline diet. I suggest getting a bulk of your fats from avocados and coconut. I usually limit myself to a half an avocados worth of fat a day. 

    I would look into those books first and if you are under a doctors supervision bring those materials to him/her and see what they say.

    I hope this helps.

    Q: Hey Gary here are my challenge I'm 43 been trying to lose weight, I start on a program and stop once I don't see any results. I tried the Detox I think I lost about 5 pounds, I work at night and have a part time jobs seeing private patients in the day so my sleep pattern is little maybe I get 4 hrs of sleep I'm having problems getting this weight off. I also want to mention when I do exercise my joints swell so I try to keep it low impact. I also have sweet tooth so I get these cravings here and there more so when I'm at work at night. Hopefully you can help me. Thanks....Lakeisha

    A:

    Hi, thanks for the question.

    Lets go through one thing at a time. Your overall schedule and lifestyle is not healthy and will likely sabotage your health goals. Receiving so little sleep will prevent major weight loss because your body cannot cleanse and cannot recharge. You must repay your energy debt before you can properly lose weight. Your body is always in a state of playing catch-up to the workload you are giving it. It stores fat because it doesn't have the
    energy to properly function. I understand crazy schedules but they will not get you the results you desire. I would focus on trying to find a more balanced or healthier schedule before adding the stress of losing weight to an already overworked body.

    Your body has been come toxic and inflamed from a toxic lifestyle. A high carb-high raw vegan diet will help ease your suffering the most. A high carb (fruit based) diet will help replenish your energy stores and reduce
    nutritional stress. To learn more about how a healthy vegan diet can help you reach your goals please consider the following eBooks found at Dherbs.com.

    "Go Vegan the Healthy way" or
    "Lose weight the healthy way"

    As far as your mindset is concerned an all or nothing approach rarely breeds success. Especially when it come to regaining health or losing weight. It takes time and patience. I would recommend checking out the DVD
    "fat sick and nearly dead". It's a fascinating look at how you can quickly go from a health zero to a health hero in the shortest time. Every single person on the planet has a sweet tooth. Those who say they don't usually are hopped up on caffiene or other drugs and pharmaceuticals. Every cell in the body runs on glucose. The brain eats up a small apple and a half worth of glucose every hour. Eating a high carb-lower fat diet will give you an energy abundance, reduce overall stress, and help you lose weight.

    Hope this helps,

    Q: Hi, about 4-6 months ago I performed a full body detox, followed up by the 10 day bowel cleanse. Ever since that detox program my periods have changed. Now when I have my period the first day I feel very faint (and sometimes do faint), and feel my energy drain from my body. I proceed to get sick, throw up often, and sweat profusely. I never had cramps before and the levels of cramps I experience now are violent. Is this normal? I never experienced any of this until my detox. On the plus side, my period is more timely, and has changed colors as you said to a more oxygenated color. I'm assuming that I'm on that path to healing, but if there is something I can do to move forward I'd appreciate your advice. Getting sick like this scares me, but also not looking very good with my employer.

    A:

    Please read our articles "HEALING CRISIS" and "IS THIS NORMAL?" Your body is simply regulating itself. Take 3 capsules of MOON CYCLE FORMULAdaily and drink 1-2 cups of FEMALE HEALTH TEA daily. The MENSTRUAL ABDOMINAL OIL will also help.

    Q: My fiance has experienced water retention and discoloration in his right foot and leg for around 2 years. Doctors had him on water pills, coreg for vascular issues and glyberide for high blood sugars. He ordered the Pancreas kit and around a week into the program experienced more swelling in the foot and leg. He stopped the program to resume taking the water pill to see if this would help. He has gained around 12 lbs which is water held in this leg. I know the natural way of good nutrition and herbs is a good course to follow but can you offer some suggestions to help these issues. 1. water retention 2. His stomach rumbles and gurgles 24 hours a day to the point where I thought our neighbors were dragging furniture across the floor. This has caused him considerable embarrassment at work. We are eating a vegan diet about 50% raw-50%-cooked. Oddly enough when he eats a standard American diet the rumbling stops. 3. High blood pressure. Thank you so much for answering my previous letter to you. I believe in what you are doing, and know that the body will heal at it's own pace with proper care. I have resolved a urinary problem just a week into your Detox program and think it's great.

    A:

    Your husband is NOT getting proper circulation to his extremities. He should have not stopped the Pancreas kit because it is common for things to get worse before better. He should have judged himself after the kit was finished in 3-weeks. He experienced the HEALING CRISIS and stopped! He should complete the kit and regimen (perhaps even starting over).

    His stomach is making noises because he's having digestive problems. He needs to eat as much raw foods as possible and rink plenty of vegetable juice. SAD foods stops his stomach from gurgling because that's what's in his stomach; and when he does not give his stomach what it wants (a sign of fasting and cleansing), he hear the noise from his stomach. Again, the healing crisis. Things will get worse before they get better. However, you don't stop!

    High blood pressure is due to his toxic state and poor circulation!

    Have him perform the Full Body Detox and right after the Full Body Detox, the Pancreas kit and regimen.

    There's healing from him!

    Please peruse some of our free articles so as to truly learn what's going on with his/your bodies pertaining to healing.

    Q: I am thinking about purchasing your Full Body Cleanse program, but I am concerned about one thing... too much weight lost. I am already thin, and do not want to fade away as I think three weeks on nothing but raw fruits and veggies may leave me looking sick. What is your suggestion? Are there any foods high in protein I can eat while cleansing? Also, thank you so much for your wisdom and insight. I listen to you on Blake Radio, and one of the reasons why I am buying your product is because you speak with so much passion. There are a lot of cleaning products out there, and to be perfectly honest, I have been so overwhelmed by the products out there that I ended up not buying anything. At any rate, thank you for your time and let please let me know if you have any suggestions on keeping up my weight while I cleanse.

    A:

    If you are concerned about getting enough food while maintaining a raw foods diet over a 20-day period, make sure you are consuming plenty of healthy fats to keep you full and satiated. Avocado, Coconut Cream or Oil, Raw Nuts, Raw Seeds, are great sources of nutrients and healthy fats that will keep you from losing weight.

    To get the protein you need, you can try making a smoothie with Vegan Protein Powder.

    Q: I am taking the FULL BODY DETOX. I am working 3rd shift tonight. I am trying to avoid coffee. Please give me a healthy alternative to stay awake. Also is there something herbal I can take to help me calm down to sleep during the day?

    A:

    The best way to provide your body with more energy would be to consume foods that have a rich source of energy.  Foods that naturally provide the body with energy include banana, spinach, citrus fruits like grapefruits and oranges, apples, almonds and lemons.  Green Tea and Yerba Mate tea is also a good source of energy.  Camomille or Kava Kava tea can help calm you when you're ready for bed.  If your schedule constantly flucuates, you might be interested in the Energy Formula.

    Q: I have just received the FULL BODY DETOX and look forward to beginning the program. My mother wishes that she could strictly follow the Detox as well, but must take several prescription medications each day, for illnesses such as diabetes and vascular disesase. She is a very active, almost 85 year old woman and wonders if there is a much shorter alternative to the Detox, or something else from dherbs which will help her.

    A:

    She can always purchase the FULL BODY DETOXand do the cleanse for 10 days and still have enough capsules to perform another 10-day cleanse in the future. She's free to improvise with the herbs.

    Q: I am interested working for a herbaceutical company. At present I work at a pharmacy, so you may probably understand why I would rather invest my time and energy in products that heal the body as oppose to poisoning it. If you may know of any companies that are in the Atlanta, GA area (Maybe your Herbaceutical Company) please be ever so kind to let me know. I want to some how impact the world just as you are doing.

    A:

    Glad to hear of your interest in herbaceuticals. I don't know of any in the Atlanta area and I myself am a solely Inter-net business. It may be for you to start your own company, starting off as a home-based business. Trust me, the clientele is there as people are becoming more health conscious day-by-day.

    Q: I am so impressed with your website and the level of great information you provide. The product list is very impressive as well. I have High Blood Pressure and have been on medication for a little over five years. I am 5'8" tall 167lbs. I'm in pretty good shape. I don't understand why I have HBP. I know I want to be off the meds. I feel really tired when I try to exercise. (I mean really tired) I notice there is constant congestion and post nasal drip. I'm usually going to the bathroom to urinate 4 or 5 times every night. So, I want to accomplish a couple of things. 1. I want my energy level back so that I can get back into the gym build my body again. 2. I want to get off these meds. I've been thinking about doing the FULL BODY DETOX but I read where some people were having real pain. I'm concerned that if the pain is too bad my blood pressure will go up.

    A:

    Thank you, Beloved! Glad you like the website! I would recommend that you first perform the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD). Drink ginseng tea too while detoxing! Consult with our "HERBAL CHART" for products to take for any diseases you may be dealing with. Again, begin the FBD right away to reclaim your health. The meds are only killing you slowly but surely. You can heal, Beloved!

    Q: I'm only on the 4th day of the FULL BODY DETOX, but my sciatic nerve is really bothering me (and it was prior to me starting the detox as well), and my energy level (especially here at work) is still pretty much dragging. I know that you do not advise taking any of your other herbs while doing the detox, so do you have any suggestions for the relief of my sciatic nerve and fatigue situation?

    A:

    You could drink herbal tea during the Detox. Just don't take solid things (herbs, supplements). Try the HEADACHES TEA! Drink a few cups per day! If your sciatic nerve is bothering you while cleansing it's because the nerve is being worked on by the herbs. Let the herbs do its job. The pain won't last long. You did something in the past that brought you pleasure but damaged the nerve so now you're experiencing the flip side (pain) on your way back to balance.

    Q: I did purchase the FULL BODY DETOX, but I have not taken it yet. I have been experiencing some edena in my ankles and hand. I know that the doctor's are here for a reason, but I do believe that GOD is the great physician. If I start out with 2-3 of the herbs per bottle will I get the same effect as if I was taken the 5. I will increase the dosage, I guess that I am afraid of some of the side effects that I have read about.

    A:

    If you really believe that God is the great healer then you wouldn't be afraid to take God's great healing agents called HERBS, right? So really, you don't believe but would like to, and this is fine, Beloved! In re your question, yes, you can take 2-3 capsules a day but it will prolong the cleanse to about 4-5 weeks. In re being afraid: all I can say is, you attract what you fear, or, what you fear will appear! There is nothing to fear, beloved! God and fear cannot co-exist! Have faith!!!!!

    Q: Last week was my first week on the detox program. I have a question about the charcoal - what is it used for? I know that it is part of the detox program, but what organ does it help to cleanse? I have stopped all meat and dairy products with no problem- but I am still having a difficult time with the sweet cravings. Any suggestions?

    A:

    Activated Charcoal aids the detoxification process by helping eliminate toxins and heavy metals.

    For sweet cravings, you can eat as much fresh fruit as you'd like while on the cleanse. After your cleanse is finished, you may wish to consume Sugar Control Formula to address those cravings.

    Q: I am very interested in Dherbs herbal formulas - they appear to be high quality, good formulas. I have a question for you. I eat a vegan diet, about 50% raw foods (sometimes more), get regular exercise, and love to spend time in nature. I am a generally healthy person who rarely gets sick. I have healed myself from asthma and allergies and other ailments by living a healthy lifestyle and using herbs and energy work. However, I do still suffer from cramping during my period (probably endometriosis) and from cervical dysphasia due to HPV. I would love to get these cleared up, too! What do you recommend in terms of your herbal formulas? For example, should I do the whole body detox first, then start in with the ailment specific recommendations, or start everything all at once? Any advice you could give me would be greatly appreciate.

    A:

    We would recommend that you first start out with the Full Body Cleanse, followed by the Anti-Viral Kit, followed by the Female Cleanse. These should help you to clear up those unwanted reproductive ailments and provide essential nutrients for female health.

    After this series of cleansing, we also recommend the the following supplements in order to to stay on the path towards whole body wellness.

    Menstrual Cycle Formula
    Female Hormonal Formula
    Female Health Tea
    Anti-Viral Formula
