    Q: I read your article on Dangerous Dairy, and I cannot find on the internet any back up on what is discussed about dairy. Example, fecal matter (like milk), if this is not real fecal matter. What are you talking about? It is also stated that no other animals will drink other animals milk. This is not so, there are reports of baby animals, that lose their mothers and another species steps in to save the baby animals life. A dog saving a baby tigers life. A squirrel saving a pigs life, etc. It is a known fact that we have been eating dairy products for over 8,0000 years. I know that times have changed, but where are your facts were are you getting these facts to report such cause and effect? I would like to see this facts or websites. Thank you.

    A:

    Your problem may be the Inter-net. You can't be an exclusive Inter-net armchair researcher and expect to find everything, such as the information in my article. We can't give up on BOOKS for a computer screen!

    Everything I cover in my article can be scientifically backed up.

    Q: I am a 42-year-old female and in the last year I've been diagnosed with many types of environmental and food allergies (corn, soy, peanuts, green peas, and yeast) additionally a HIDA scan showed that my gallbladder is not functioning properly (no gallstones) but only dumping 12%. Could there be a link between gallbladder and food allergies? Could you recommend another option, other than surgery? I exercise 3 - 4 times a week and have a fairly decent diet; but over the past year I've gained aprox 30 pounds. Things are not quite adding up; only the pounds. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    A:

    SURGERY, BECAUSE YOUR GALLBLADDER IS DEFECTIVE? DOCTORS ARE INSANE! YOU SIMPLY REJUVENATE THE ORGAN AND THE ORGAN FUNCTIONS TO PAR AGAIN. AND YOU REJUVENATE THE ORGAN OR THE ENTIRE BODY WITH FOOD THAT NOURISH, PROVIDE ENERGY, AND CAUSE GROWTH, REPAIR, AND MAINTENANCE FOR SUSTAINING LIFE. WE CALL THIS "HERBACEUTICAL" AND THAT'S WHAT WE SELL. BELOVED, SURGERY IS TO GET MONEY FROM INSURANCE AT THE EXPENSE OF YOUR TEMPLE (OF GOD). IT IS UNNECESSARY. BELOVED, I HUMBLY SUGGEST YOU PERFORM OUR FULL BODY DETOX AND FOLLOW THE KIT UP WITH A DAILY MAINTENANCE OF OUR LIVER AND GALLBLADDER FORMULA (3 CAPSULES DAILY) AND LIVER EXTRACT (1-2 DROPPERFULS IN WATER DAILY) AND YOU WILL NOTICE A DIFFERENCE. YOU SHOULD ALSO START DRINKING DANDELION ROOT TEA AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. AFTER YOU GET YOUR RESULTS WE ONLY ASK THAT YOU FILL OUT OUR AFFIDAVIT OF HEALING SO THAT WE MAY PROVE TO GOVERNMENT THAT PEOPLE ARE HEALING THEMSELVES WITH GOD'S PLANTS. THE GOVERNMENT IS PLANNING TO CRACK DOWN ON NATURAL HEALING BECAUSE TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP AND THE DRUG INDUSTRY IS LOSING A LOT OF MONEY. THE PEOPLE MUST NOW SPEAK AND RECLAIM THEIR SOVEREIGNTY.

    Q: Can you tell me what to give my 5 year old twins daughters and 3 year old son to help support their immune system?

Much obliged! Greatly!

    A:

    I would say to put your children on the RAINFOREST TONIC TEA, letting them drink one cup per day. The VITAMIN C FORMULA is something I would also suggest for your children's immune system as well. Peace and Love! I appreciate you very much, Beloved!

    Q: My 20-year-old daughter has been diagnosed with focal glomerulosclerosis last year. (The same kidney disease Alonso Mourning had). She has protein spilling in her urine. I was thinking about purchasing your FULL BODY DETOX but not sure if she could take this with the medication that she is taking. At one point, she was on 50 mg of prednisone. That amount has been reduced to 5mg daily. She is also taking diovan and another pill (can't think of it at this time). Can you tell me what herb or combination of herbs will be good for her? With my faith and through God's and mercy, I'm praying for a miracle that her kidneys be restored.

    A:

    THE FULL BODY DETOX WOULD BE THE BEST THING FOR HER. NO MEDICATION IN THE WORLD CAN HEAL ANY DISEASE. GOD/NATURE DID NOT MAKE MEDICINE AND SO THEY ARE INORGANIC AND CANNOT BE ASSIMILATED BY THE BODY, WHICH IS ORGANIC. DO NOT TAKE THE HERBS IF SHE WILL STILL BE TAKING MEDICATION BECAUSE IT WOULD DEFEAT THE WHOLE PURPOSE AND I DON'T WANT YOU TO WASTE YOUR MONEY.

    We would recommend that you son perform the Full Body Cleanse (or Children's Cleanse). His body is toxic and he's eliminating toxins via the feet.

    Q: I just recently found out that the face cream I have been using for 1 year has a horrible carcinogen in it called hydroquinone. I have been putting it on my face twice a day for over a year. Of course I had no idea this ingredient was a carcinogen, apparently a very serious one, until recently. I am not so worried for myself but concerned for my children who through cuddling and kissing were exposed to this substance as much as I was. What could I possibly do to get this horrible chemical out of their system and reverse it's damage. Also, my 7-year-old son had a CT scan of his head and I am worried about the radiation, can you recommend anything for that.

    A:

    Beloved, I would highly suggest you perform the FULL BODY DETOX and have the children perform the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) . A good cleanse will help you out!

    Q: I've been eating vegan (mostly raw) for nearly 2 years. In the first year, I lost about 60 pounds. I still have about 50 more to lose and it hasn't budged in almost a year. I hear conflicting info about what sort of exercise would be best - cardio vs. strength. And any time I up my exercise, my hunger gets out of control. Any suggestions?

    A:

    Thanks for the question. The most efficient way to lose weight from working out are high rep/low weight circuit training and through HIIT (high intensity interval training).

    Your goal should be to increase metabolism and fat burning potential throughout the day. Both HIIT and circuit weight training are both effective. To be maximized you should exercise for 1 hour 5-6 times a week. You could alternate between cardio days and circuit training days. Here is an example.

     

    Mon: HIIT

    Tues: Circuit training

    Wed: rest

    Thurs: HIIT

    Fri: Circuit training

    Sat: HIIT

    Sun: Rest

     

    Here is an example of a circuit and  HIIT

     

    Circuit. 15-20 reps 1 minute rest between sets. repeat for 20-30 minutes. (feel free to use the template and build your own)

    Upper: pushups

    Lower: Squats

    Core: Crunches

    Plyo: Burpees

    Upper: Clean and press or curl to press

    Lower: Alternating weighted lunges

    Core: Reverse crunches

    Plyo: Step ups 

     

    HIIT (can be done on almost any cardio machine)

    3 minute warmup

    -30 second sprint 

    -1 minute recovery

    *Repeat for 15 minutes to 30 minutes*

    3 minute cool down

    Top fat loss mistakes for cardio and weight training

    Cardio: Doing 1 speed with no resistance cardio. This kills me. Your fat burning potential begins and ends when you do. If it doesn't challenge you it will not change you. Atleast put the resistance on mountain or random. 

    Weight: Resting too long in between sets. Super sets are key here. Work one set while resting the other. Example of a superset is chest press and seated row together. Quad machine and ham machine. Pullup and shoulder press. 

    When you ramp up your metabolism you are going to have to eat more. Losing weight isn't about calories. Losing weight is about nutrient density. Here is a blog I did on eating for fitness and getting lean. http://the-vegan-effect.healthcoach.integrativenutrition.com/blog/2012/05/qa-eating-for-fitness-getting-lean

     

    Hope that answers your question,

    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.

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: After I had my baby over a year ago I've had a constant discharge. There is no foul order just thin white.

I'm vegetarian but I occasionally have pizza with cheese. Help!

    A:

    Q: 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

    A:

    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.
