    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: I took and followed the Anti-viral cleansing kit and my test for herpes said that I had it. So I called and spoke with someone with Dherb's and I was told that I might have to redo this as many as 3x but on Dherbs I have read a lot about other kits and this and I just would like to know what kits in what order for how long should I do to get a clean test. I understand that every one is different but before I go back to get another test I would do all that I can do to change this. Please help lead me on the right path.

    A:

     First, perform the Full Body Cleanse for 20 days. Perform the salt baths, drink vegetable juice daily (especially CILANTRO) as recommended in the Full Body Cleanse Companion manual;

    After the DETOX, jump on the Anti-Viral Cleanse. Only wait less than a week to start it. Do the same things you did while detoxing, i.e. (salt baths, vege juice, etc.).

    Then go get tested a day after you finish this cleansing. Schedule your doctor visit the 22nd day after you start the Anti-Viral Cleanse. This should help you achieve the best results possible.

    Q: My hair has been falling out in patches for the past few years at first they said it was eczema, next they said that I had psoriasis on my scalp and last they want to test me for lupus. I will not take the test but my scalp really looks bad. I have several balding areas on my head like parasites are eating my hair off. Do you have any recommendations? I have also noticed hair loss in other ares of my body (legs and private parts) Thanks in advance.

    A:

    Read the "HAIR PROBLEMS" article but as well as our new "SKIN DISORDER = BLOOD DISORDER" article (due out next week) to understand that your condition is one of toxic blood. Perform the FULL BODY DETOX (perhaps back to back). Use natural shampoos and conditioners (purchase our ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL e-book for a listing of healthy brands). Consider a radical diet and lifestyle change. There's much you need to do, but the most important thing is to educate yourself and you can do that by reading many of our health articles for a general overview of health and what you need to do to heal on all levels.

    Q: My mother has just found out from a blood test that Hep C was found in her liver/ blood. We are believers in Jesus Christ and His Word, so we don't like to speak negative words that are contrary to what we believe and hope to manifest from the spiritual into the natural. The condition of her liver is to the point that her skin has erupted from head to toe with blisters, rash, etc. We have always been herb heads and into natural healing. We have read your article on Hepatitis and I found it to be a true answer to prayer, you described my mother to a T. This information has helped me to better understand my mother and have compassion toward her negative attitude she struggles with, so I am grateful to you for that.

    A:

    Hepatitis C is easy to knock out! She just needs to detox with the FULL BODY DETOX and drink Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root tea.

    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: I have also heard some discouraging things about the antibody blood test for HSVII, and how its not as accurate as testing for lesions. But, I had herpes for about a year, so I know my body had enough time to generate antibodies for the virus. Therefore, when I did the regimen the antibodies went away. But I guess my question is, Just because antibodies go away, does that necessarily denote that no virus is present; or in other words antibodies only are present in response to the virus in my body? I just want to make sure that these issues are not something that should be given greater attention. Please help....Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks.

    A:

    I'm not really into the whole antibody thing with herpes, but using western logic, no anitbodies = no virus present! You're! fine! You're experiencing some residual healing effects. But don't focus on this thing to long because what you worry about you create. Read the Mental Science Manual Beloved!

    Q: Does Dherbs.Com Test its Products?

    A:

    Absolutely NOT! There's no need to! However, individuals are free to take our products in for evaluation or testing at their own expense. Dherbs.Com is not like any other company. Integrity is our trademark and we would never compromise the integrity of any product. You see, other companies have to test their products because they don't use pure herbs. When you start using standardized products, oxides, and a host of other man-made constituents, then you need testing and rightly so. But not with pure herbs (pure food)! If you doubt the efficacy of any Dherbs.Com product, by all means, please take the product in for testing. Believing is seeing (in many respects)!

    Q: I read most of your articles. Love them. What you say is 100% correct. See for me. I believe that God has put me here for a reason. I have been blessed with the ability to for see things and when I think about something hard enough BAM!! I think of someone and they show up, so in regards to my current situation YES. I did have a hand in this. I keep thinking of not wanting to get HIV. Didn’t want to hear about or talk about it. Then two months before getting my initial test. It was on my mind. Then I got a physical and I was like no going to take this test but went ahead anyway and here we are. Do I believe in it? Not anymore. I now believe in blood toxicity. I am not freaking out about outbreaks because I don't have any. What I want is to know how to shape my mind. Do I need Chakra balance? What can I do to stop the thoughts? How do I reverse my mind to stop thinking on things. I try so hard to see happy things and feel happy thoughts. BTW in Jan I thought about a cold sore and it appeared.

    A:

    Thanks for explaining all that! I think the MENTAL SCIENCE MANUAL is right up your alley, Beloved. It'll be up next week. So glad you enjoy my articles, Beloved! You are a powerful person and you will be dangerous (in a good way) when you learn the power of your mind. Peace and Love!

    Q: Good morning. I tried the WEIGHT RELEASE CLEANSE AND REGIMEN and followed the diet. I must say that I am amazed at how good I feel. Energetic and focused but alas, I only lost 3 pounds in the 3 weeks. I am 5'5 and currently at 181 pounds. My body is extremely resistant to weight loss. I have done several different types of detox including the IZO juice cleanse in the last year and had not lost weight. I don't even seem to respond to a very low calorie diet. I do have elevated liver Enzyme levels and a recent blood test showed low B6 vitamin and not proper protein digestion. I exercise 3 times a week and I eat rather health and mostly organic. Please HELP. Thanks

    A:

    This means that your body focused on another area that was of more importance than weight release. your mind wanted weight reduction but your body intelligence focused on something else. Go with the flow of the body intelligence and trust it. You apparently have an energetic block that prevents you from physically releasing weight (since you've tried other programs). Consider scheduling a consultation so we can get at the energetic/emotional root of your problem. Simply stop worrying about "losing" weight. Focus on what you desire (to see yourself in the size you desire). Don't focus on what you don't want (i.e. to lose weight).

    Q: I'm sorry to keep bugging you I know you are probably tired of me by now but I just have to ask you one more thing I was involved in a devilish relationship and I was a virgin and he was not so I waited at least 3 months before we had unprotected intercourse and the test came back negative but evidently he had during that period and that was how it infected me. So if I were to do the full body detox and the anti-viral kit and it were to come back negative how long after my first negative should I go back and test just to make sure I wont past it on to someone else and put them through trauma.

    A:

    That would be up to you. You see, once a person tests "negative" our advice is to not look back and worry about getting re-tested, etc. (which means you don't really trust that the disease/virus is really gone or cured). We say test negative and move on; but if you want to get re-tested during the year, that's your prerogative and you can do so as often as you like. I humbly and sincerely trust I have gone overboard in asking all of your concerns and inquiries and can now redirect my energy back into answering first time inquiries.

    Q: I have experienced a myriad of issues to which no answer or solid test has proved conclusive. In the short span since my return I have and continue to be plagued with 2 ongoing problems: Some form of vaginitis (since no one/physician seems to think what I am experiencing is abnormal) and Gastrointestinal issues As a result I have had the following tests and “inconclusive†results (in my opinion): Was diagnosed with Gardnerella or BV in 2006: was treated with no symptoms thereafter, but continue to experience discomfort particularly 2 wks before menstruation occurs. - Acid reflux: was given Nexium prescription, but refused to take prescription and opted to take a natural route i.e., drinking ginger or laxative teas - Thyroid: ultrasound of thyroid was conducted and miniscule cysts were found, but not detected as malignant or harmful

    A:

    You may want to read our articles entitled â€BACTERIOR VAGINOSIS†and â€VAGINAL ODORS AND DISCHARGE†found in our articles section. I can tell you right off the bat, Beloved, that you are due for a FULL BODY DETOX followed by a TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. These 2 cleanses along with the raw foods diet will greatly help you, Beloved. It sounds like your system has a lot of acid right now. Work on your pH (getting more alkaline). You can heal, Beloved. You just have a lot of mucus in your body. That's all. Reboot your system (body) by cleansing and eating healthy food (fruits and vegetables).

    Q: I completed FULL BODY DETOX and the ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I went to get a full STD test including HIV the 1st week in July. My results were normal, but I called the doctor back to make sure herpes was included in the tests she ran and her nurse said I will need to come back in for that additional test. Since I finished the FULL BODY DETOX and ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN I still include fruits/veggies in my daily meals and I moderate other foods, but I totally cut out beef, Pork and I have some chicken, but primarily I will eat fish if I have the urge for meat. Now that I have to go back to get additional test for herpes I am nervous because I thought she covered all std tests the first time and I was happy that everything was normal like my pap smear, blood work, etc. I am really scared? If the results are not what I am looking for what do I need to do? Do I need to do the FULL BODY DETOX again? Or just order the anti-viral kit or just the anti-viral capsules? I am trying to stay positive but doctor visits are not my happiest moments!

    A:

    Being nervous is a sign of doubt and doubt is the subconscious will to fail. The best thing you could do is think positive and feel secure right now in the moment!

    Q: You list going to the gym and jogging as dangerous activities. I thought exercise was important and vital? Could you please explain your position a little further for me. I really enjoy your articles. They are very informative and thorough. I look forward to your response. Thanks!

    A:

    Exercise is great, but the healthy exercises include Pilates, yoga, tai-chi, qi chong, stretching, swimming, etc. Jogging is okay if on sand, dirt, or grass. If on cement/asphalt - DANGEROUS (destroys the bones and uterus in women). The gym is okay but weight lifting and other exercises are dangerous and destroy connective tissue.

    Q: I would like to know the safest and the FASTEST way to loss weight. I have tried almost everything, like exercise, but I always overdue myself, or it just doesn't work. My height is 5'6", weight is 180.6, and my age is 15. Im a 10th grader at my school, and I'm tried of being put down by everyone I meet. And my family is moving soon, and I'm afraid of what my new classmates will say. So I was wondering what you would advise.

    A:

    I am sorry to hear of your plight. There are many ways to lose weight fast. Not all of them healthy. In fact most are not. 

    The three best ways to lose weight are

    1: High raw/high carb/low fat/nutrient dense diet plan

    2: Juice fasting/detoxing/cleansing (average 1 pound per day loss)

    3: Staying active

     

    Three books that may help you out get onto the right path (until I get mine published) are

    1: "The beauty detox solution" by Snyder

    2: "Crazy sexy diet" by Karr

    3: "The paradigm diet" by Dave

     

    I run my own online health/nutrition/fitness coaching company called "The Vegan Effect" I have helped many lose tons of weight. My one client lost 50 lbs in 60 days!! I would love the chance to work with you. My program is essentially a course in health that empowers people to reach all their lifes goals. If my program is something that you would like to participate in let me know. I do a free initial consultation over skype. 

    As far as juice fasting is concerned, although it is incredibly effective please do your research, watch "Fat, sick, and nearly dead", consult a nutritonal professional, and make sure you can juice your own juice. Do not attempt juice fasting on store bought juice.

    Let me know if there is anything else you need to know. I hope my answers were sufficient enough.
