The Dangers of Antidepressants

Antidepressants are mood-stabilizing drugs designed to help alleviate the symptoms of depression. http://dherbs.com/uploads/news/id4498/Fotolia_63313777_Subscription_Monthly_M_thumb.jpg

Antidepressants are mood-stabilizing drugs designed to help alleviate the symptoms of depression. But the symptomatic relief comes at an extremely high price-not just in terms of money, but in the toll they can take on the body and the side effects they create.

Types of antidepressants

There are four classes of antidepressants:

  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). SSRIs are designed to help the brain make better use of serotonin, which is believed to elevate or moderate mood. Types of SSRIs are:
    • Paxil, Prozac, Celexa
  • Serotonin-Norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). These work a lot like SSRIs, but they inhibit norephinephrine in addition to serotonin. Examples of SNRIs are:
    • Effexor and Cymbalta
  • Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs). TCAs slow or prevent the re-uptake of serotonin and norepinephrine, which causes increased production of these 'feel good' brain chemicals. TCAs are not the same as SRNIs. Examples of TCAs are:
    • Elavil, Tofranil and Pamelor
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs). This was one of the original types of antidepressants that had to be taken with strict dietary intake. They were eventually replaced due to the severe side effects that came from taking them. Today, they are a last resort for patients unresponsive to SSRIs and TCAs. Examples of MAOIs are:
    • Parnate, Nardil
There are also antidepressants that don't fit these classifications. They are:
  • Wellbutrin
  • Remeron


Known Side Effects

According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), known side-effects of antidepressants are:

  • Headache
  • Night sweats
  • Nausea
  • Agitation
  • Sexual problems
  • Dry mouth
  • Constipation
  • Suicidal thinking
  • Mania (extreme high and low emotional states)
  • Birth defects
  • High blood pressure


Causes of Depression

The medical term 'depression' derives from a Latin word 'deprimare' meaning "to press down."

Depression results when there is lack of inspiration, optimism, and enthusiasm in life. It is also the result of the spirit being deflated.

People become depressed when hope is lost or perceived to be lost.

People become depressed when they feel lonely or perceive themselves to be lonely.

People become depressed when they don't feel loved or perceive to have lost love.

People become depressed when they don't see a way out of a dark situation.

People become depressed when they don't feel good about themselves over a long period of time.

People become depressed at the loss of a loved one to death.

People become depressed when they don't have any money or are constantly broke, especially women.

Dietary Intervention


Depression can be improved by greatly modifying the diet. A nutrition-rich diet is key.

Lack of certain nutrients that nourish the brain and neurological system must be added to the diet. To make sure the body and the brain are getting certain nutrients that are greatly needed, it's best to eat a diet consisting of various vegetables and fruits, in their raw form but also in the form of herbal extracts, teas, and capsules.

A raw foods diet alone will cause a tremendous positive change in a depressed person. Why? Well, because raw foods are filled with life. Raw foods are live foods and live foods are enzymatic in nature. Enzymes are what give life to raw foods.

Raw foods are a whole lot of wonderful veggies, fruits, seeds, nuts, and grains. Learn more at our "Dietary Choices" Dietary Choices section on our site.

Avoid meat and dairy products as well as processed and refined products. They contain many harmful chemical additives that impair the brain and nervous system.

Avoid all chemical sweetening agents: sugar, saccharin, aspartame, Nutra Sweet, Equal, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, dextrose, Ace-K, etc.

Avoid all beverages that contain the synthetic amino acid 'phenylalanine.'

Avoid all commercial brand energy drinks, i.e. Red Bull, Full Throttle, etc.

Avoid all alcoholic beverages: beer, wine, champagne, etc.

Drink plenty of good water - distilled, spring, or alkaline water are best! Alkaline water is best!

Avoid chemical and pharmaceutical drugs, especially antidepressants. Antidepressant drugs such as Prozac, Celexa, Zoloft, Lexapro, Sarafem, Zyban, Luvox, Wellbutrin, Effexor, and Serzone to name a few have ended up as prescriptions for millions of Americans, including the late great pop icon Michael Jackson.

When antidepressants are consumed with painkillers, the body's internal organs may stop due to an organ-stopping effect of serotonin syndrome.

    Q: My 14 year old cousin's mom has checked her into to mental hospital. This entire school year she has ben dealing with alot going into high school, and other teen age issues. Her birth father is not in the home but, her mom has a pretty good man, that steps up, and does a good job with her two children. However, she has been battling with her weight, although she wasn't over weight she didn't feel thin enough like the other children at her school. Her mom found Hydroxycut in her room, and all hair feel out. This past weekend went to her mom's boyfriend and told him she tried to overdose on pills to kill herself, because of all the pressure. Her mom had her in therapy behind the weightloss issue, she thought she was ok, until this last suicidal mission. Is there any help or advice you can render. I told her mom that the hospital thing was a horrible idea due to the medication that they will be administering and other brain washing methods they use to further F*** you up so that when you are release you a labeled, and sure to be crazy. D-Herbs at 14 this is insane, her mom has given up hope, and gave her chiild into the hands of the enemy. I am conscious and try to talk to her but it doesn't seem to work.

    A:

    That's an unfortunate situation. Have the mother read the information on Dherbs.com or schedule a consultation so she can speak with me live and direct. These are the only ways I know to help, Beloved. I'm also about to write an article on DEPRESSION, and the DANGERS OF ANTIDEPRESSANTS. Hang in there and know that your cousin wrote her own life script (before she was born), so she is gaining an experience so as to learn a life lesson for her soul's purpose. It doesn't make sense on a lower level, but on a higher level, it all will add up and make sense. God's hand is over everything, even those things that appear bad.

    Q: I had a question regarding the chicken pox and other child sickness. I wanted to know what must I give my 8 month old baby if he do get the chicken pox or other sickness. I haven?t given him any vaccination, so he is clean of all that pollution that they are given the children. Could you please advice what I must do if he gets that. And also he are teething and he has some slime on his chest, I?m giving him some sweet basil and also mint tea to see if he can pass it out. If you have any other bush that I can give him please let me know.

    A:

    First of all, don't even worry about chicken pox lest you give the disease energy and attract it to your son. However, I understand your concern as a mother.

    Prevention is better than remedy and you have already done the BEST thing by not vaccinating your child. Kudos to you - a very smart and wise move!

    Give your child plenty of immune boosting herbs -- Pau D'Arco, Astragulus, Echinacea, Goldenseal and Cat's Claw. Make a tea of them and sweeten them with maple syrup or agave nectar.

    Q: Wow. A friend of a friend referred me to your website. I'm looking for alternative post surgery treatment for my 6 month old daughter who had sarcoma removed from her flank area. Oncologist says she needs 4 more rounds of chemo to kill invisible cells, just in case they exist. I know there has to be a safer solution. Please advise.

    A:

    There is a safer solution: don't do the procedure. But this is your personal choice to make. I'd recommend giving the child RAINFOREST TONIC TEA (sweetened with maple syrup, of course). Read our articles on "SURGERY" and "THE DANGERS OF CHEMOTHERAPY".

    Q: I just stopped taking my medication for high blood pressure (10mg of Lisinapril) about a week and half ago. I started your regimen of Circul-Aid Formula, Cardio-Vascular Formula and celery everyday. Will there be any after effects from my taking prescription medication for a long period of time? Are there any other healing regimens I could undergo along with the current (i.e. cayenne/garlic)? I did the Full Body Detox in January (excellent), and plan on undertaking that regimen again in July. My only concern was the lasting effects of the medication. Also, the article on High Blood Pressure was very informative.

    A:

    Drug residues will remain in the tissues for some time. The more you detox, take herbals, and eat raw fruits and vegetables (drink fruit and vegetable juice), drink good water, etc. The faster the drug residues will leave the body. Drugs are not assimilated in the body, because they are not organic, they end up lodged in the tissues of the body. When you take herbs, and eat fruits and vegetables, the tissues are cleansed and that's how the drug residues are eliminated from the body. You are on the right path, and I suggest you keep doing what you're doing. Don't even worry about the past drug medicine use. Stay in the NOW (moment), and focus on what you desire and you will be alright. A cayenne/garlic formula would aid you. Go for it! Make sure changes are made to the diet because it's the primary factor in HBP along with stress. Check out our "Dietary Choices" section under 'More Services' on the Home Page.

    Q: I started the FBD program on August 25th. Three days later, detox symptoms became so severe that I discontinued taking it on September 4th. However, I want to resume but feel that I need some assistance from you in terms of what might be the best way to do so in order that I can continue with my daily activities. Symptoms of most concern included: uncontrollable coughing, tightness in chest, increased blood pressure and severe headache. When I noted that the symptoms were increasing in intensity, I discontinued taking the FBD herbs,(after 10 days). 3 days after discontinuing the programs, the symptoms have subsided to a degree that I can continue with my daily activities. I want to resume the program but want to do so at a rate that I can function during the day and sleep at night without hours of intensive coughing. What suggestions do you have? About me: I am AA 60 Y.O. female who has been a raw vegan for the past 7 years. My doctor insists that I remain on the following medications: Levoxyl Tab 0.05 mg; Avapro 150mg; and Estradiol patch for thyroid condition, hypertension and menopause, respectively. Noteworthy, I discontinued taking all med 3 days prior to starting FBD and have not starting taking them again. My goal is to be free of such poisons.

    A:

    Seems though you are experiencing a severe healing crisis. First time detoxing with the FBD? It's a very powerful cleanse! Extreme coughing is due to mucus. Tightness in chest denotes respiratory issues of an emotional nature. Headaches deal with toxicity and things coming to a head in your personal life. Increased blood pressure denotes toxicity as well.

    Headache denotes the blood thinning of toxins and clearly your toxicity came from the drugs your doctor had you on. The detox is greatly removing the drug residues from your bloodstream.

    To continue the FBD, cut dosage from 5 capsules to 2-3 capsules.

    In re drugs (poisons), if you were taking all these man-made poisons before the detox (you actually admit that you were), this is where your toxicity is coming from. It doesn't matter that your diet was or is raw-vegan. Being raw-vegan while taking poisonous meds defeats the whole purpose. I trust you understand where I'm coming from.

    Q: On your web site I think you should tell people they have to be vegetarians to be on your program instead of thinking people are going to turn into vegetarians over night, and not only that, u should tell them they r not allowed to eat FOOD. Anyway, since I cant send the stuff back, what?s the best way to use it, should I smoke it, pure it in my drink, what, please tell me something.

    A:

    Beloved, why would I tell people they have to be vegetarian while performing my Full Body Detox? This would be the equivalent of doctors telling their patients they'd have to be "suicidal" to take their drugs, for after all, ALL drugs are poisonous and poison kills; and the funny thing is, people never say anything about it. Like obedient little sheep, they just follow along and take what ever their doctor (Master) says to take, even if it is poison and cannot be naturally found growing in and from Nature.

    And why would I tell people they cannot eat FOOD during my detox when the literature clearly instructs people to eat RAW fruits and vegetables? The question to you would be: what is food? Most Americans don't know what food is. But I clearly elucidate what FOOD is in my latest article "WHAT IS: RAW FOOD" (located under "Articles") which is very informative and which I suggest you read.

    Most people think dead, slaughtered animal flesh (cadaver) and dairy products (cow snot and pus) is FOOD, but food can be assimilated in the body and meat and dairy products cannot, so is meat and dairy really food? Real food does not cause cancer or any other diseases, but helps to prevent cancer and other diseases, unlike meat and dairy products, which causes cancer and many other diseases.

    Food also nourishes and meat and dairy products DON'T nourish and most people think they do because they have been successfully programmed and indoctrinated by their masters (meat and dairy industry; government, etc.). After all, most people don't study pertinent things on their own. They are used to being told, and told lies, at that; and the more people believe the lie(s), the lie becomes accepted as truth.

    Herbs are food, beloved! Fruits and vegetables are food, Beloved! To say one cannot eat food while detoxing would be false and I am not in the business of lying to people for any reason.

    Truly, it is sheer ignorance in our collective false pride that is causing all the problems we experience today, especially in the area of health.

    What can you do with the herbs????? Smoke them????

    Why would you want to smoke herbs, much less anything else? That's not wise, intelligent, or smart! No animal in the wild smokes anything. And I know humans are not like animals, which is why humans should be better off than lower animals, but the latter is not true and there are a plethora of reasons to substantiate why.

    God did not intend for smoke to go into the body. Therefore, smoking goes against God and if a person doesn't believe in God, then smoking goes against human biology and the laws of the body as carbon is automatically expelled from the human body; so why put it back in via smoking or drinking soda pop? Clearly, man (humanity) is at a lost today and needs divine guidance.

    Please forgive my arrogance, ego, or anything else you may feel in response to these words supra. It can be quite difficult and challenging at times helping a people who feel they know it all and who are very ignorant at the same time. Please forgive me. I'm a spiritual man helping people of a lower mundane nature (who are spiritually challenged and which is evidenced in the society at large).

    Americans have a spiritual problem and that spiritual problem is laced in mass and gross IGNORANCE!

    Peace be unto you, Beloved!

    Q: Dear Yogi, I read an article on your site about reverse Kundalini (anal sex). I don't know if you can answer my question or not - originally I was going to pose it to "Ask the Guru", but in my limited understanding, Kundalini is tied into yoga. I have been trying to get balanced by meditating, living my passions, writing, art, and belly dancing all unprofessionally, except for the first one (on a very small scale). I have been doing guided chakra meditations and other things, including yoga, and some dietary modifications. I feel I am gradually growing and living my purpose. However, incrementally starting in my mid forties. Anyway, I have been on this path for a couple of years now, and have more happiness and peace than I ever have. I don't want to get into a lengthy essay about my limited understanding of Kundalini, and the possibility of what I perceive is going on with my body (though I am very healthy) right now, so I will attempt to get to the point. I am grateful for my life. I have much more than many people if I were to measure. I feel like I am still blocked, though. About three years ago I dated a guy who sodomized me one time. He was a rapist, long story short and an error in judgement on my part. Though my intuition was screaming at me the whole time. I look at the experience as pushing me further along my path and teaching me to trust, love, respect myself, and defend my boundaries. What concerns me is that I feel that experience is still trapped within me to a degree, and I am worried that it will manifest into a disease. Often when I meditate on my root chakra I start crying. Part of me believes that I can't force anything, just have to let the process unfold in its own time. There is so much info out there that I find it overwhelming, and it is hard to know which to trust. So I have just been going with what resonates with me as far as technique. If you could offer me any advice, I would be grateful.

    A:

    Hello, I would like to first thank you for sharing your story and your experience. It sounds like you are devoting time and attention to the many things, that will help foster a sustained health and healing for you in life. As you have recognized, it is very helpful for us to take intuition very seriously and to honor this innate ability to discern whether a situation will be harmful or beneficial to our growth and experience as humans. Very often the circumstances and challenges presented to us in life, as happened in yours, serve as great teachers in allowing us to witness our own great strength, compassion, and value. I am glad to hear that you have been able to take the very difficult situation you found yourself in and use your experience to create a better understanding of yourself in the process. While it is true that we tend to develop patterns of holding and habitual ways of holding tension within the body; this does not mean that there are not steps you can take to move through such a body, mind, and spirit experience. The fact that you are crying upon meditating on your root chakra is a sign that you have made yourself available to the grief that naturally accompanies traumatic situations such as the one you experienced. Keep in mind that when we deeply grieve, our bodies are able to express the energy that may have potentially been repressed during this experience. The energy of the root chakra is all about our ability to feel safe, strong, and supported. The violation of this energy can leave one feeling ungrounded and striving for our self-preservation. Try not to become fixated on the worries you are having about the experience arising as disease in your body, as worrying can lead to increased levels of chronic stress, which will potentially create an internal environment more vulnerable to disease - which is what you are trying to avoid. It might be nice for you to meditate on your right to be here, to exist on this planet, and to be valued. It may also be very nice for you to take some restorative yoga classes, which can be grounding and stimulating to the parasympathetic nervous system (assists in the healing process). Recognize that the body may be holding energy in a direct response to a real threat, but begin to create a safe, loving and supportive environment to allow yourself to begin to be able to let go of this holding as you feel safe. When working to heal the first chakra, it is helpful to get in touch with the direct experience of the sensations of the body and become aware of the physical experience of the body. This can be done with the assistance of an expert, to help you change the physical expression of your felt experience. We could also do something called "body dialogue" to put you more deeply in touch with what the physical expression you are experiencing has to teach you about how you are inhabiting the world you are in. There are also many forms of grounding exercises which can help to balance the first chakra. If you are interested in being lead through a series of guided meditations, please contact me at megan@ritualwellbeing.com. Namaste, Megan

    Q: Many vitamins and minerals websites indicate that their products have been tested and actually contain what they claim to contain; what are your protocols on manufacturing? Are your herbs organically grown? Thank you.

    A:

    Organic/Wild-crafted Herbs? Dherbs.Com only utilizes organic and wild-crafted herbs in its formulas and compounds. Although organic herbs are always not available, we order our herbs in advance to make sure we keep our products full of 100% organic herbs as well as 100% wild-crafted herbs. At Dherbs.Com, we go the extra mile for our customers and we stay on top of our game to bring the customer the best product available! No other herbal company uses as many herbs as we use in our formulas nor does any other herbal company or business use the degree of rare and exotic herbs as we use in our formulas. At Dherbs.Com, without a doubt, you get the BEST and for LESS! Gelatin Capsules? Dherbs.Com only uses vegetarian (vegan) capsules made from 100% plant fiber as Dherbs.Com has a policy to not use animal or animal byproduct ingredients in the manufacturing of its products. Gelatin capsules are derived from animals (mostly pig) and are thus not vegan or even halal or kosher. Also, gelatin capsules do not fully dissolve in the stomach like vegetarian capsules. Most herbal companies use gelatin capsules because they are cheap, costing 2-3 times less than vegetarian capsules. Dherbs.Com does not let high prices or expenses stand in our way of bringing people the Best, the Safest, and the Soundest! Dherbs.Com is people first! Tablets? Dherbs.Com does not use tablets because tablets require the mixing of too many additives in order to make the tablet stick together or bind and come out a certain way, i.e. dense, smooth surface, etc. Capsules allow us at Dherbs.Com to give our customers 100% pure herbal ingredients held together in a 100% digestible vegetarian capsule for maximum absorbency in the body. Preservatives? Dherbs.Com uses absolutely no preservatives in any of its products as the only thing that needs to be preserved are “dead†things and herbs are not dead, but living (living foods), therefore that which is alive does not need to be preserved so Dherbs.Com does not and will not use preservatives in any of its formulas. Fillers? Many herbal companies use fillers in their formulas as a way to cut down on giving the customer 100% herbal content. Dherbs.Com is against this custom. Fillers may help the encapsulation process by making a formula more dense for encapsulation, but fillers have no nutritional content so when you add them to herbal compounds, they take away from the compound. Fillers help the encapsulation company and herbal company, but not the customer. Fillers water down the product! Dherbs.Com is against this process and custom. Binders? Dherbs.om does not use binders as we have no need for binders. Many herbal companies use binders to help certain ingredients bind together, but at Dherbs.Com, we use 100% herbal content and so our ingredients naturally bind together. Additives Dherbs.Com does not use any additives in any of its formulas. Additives water down the product and take away from the efficacy of a product that utilizes natural compounds. Additives help herbal companies save money by giving the customer less herb per capsule or tablet. Solvents? Dherbs.Com uses absolutely no chemical solvents in the use of its liquid herbal extracts or crystal elixirs. Our extracts are uniquely made via natural agitation (by human hand) and natural sunlight (solar energy) and our elixirs are also made by human hand and exposed to moon and sunlight. It takes us approximately two (2) weeks to produce a liquid extract compound because Nature requires time to produce what she produces. However, other herbal companies are like major fast food restaurants and need a quick supply of products for their standard of convenience and thus use harmful chemical solvents to quickly produce their herbal liquid extracts. At Dherbs.Com, though convenience is important to us, however, we won’t compromise the integrity of our products to help people get a quick fix and to make a quick buck. Patience is a requisite of Nature and Dherbs.Com is in tune with Nature. Dherbs.Com will NEVER use chemical solvents in the production of its herbal liquid extracts or crystal elixirs. Standardization? Dherbs.Com does not utilize standardization in any of its formulas. Standardization is an unnatural process whereby a standardized herb provides uniformity of a single plant chemical. A standardized extract delivers a quantified and measurable level of the targeted active ingredient (major alkaloid) in every serving and in which this active ingredient is considered by science to be the key ingredient responsible for the herbs health benefits. Other herbal companies trust man-made science, but Dherbs.Com trusts in and relies upon Nature. Other Ingredients? The phrase “other ingredients†is simply an umbrella term for “additives†and other herbal companies use other ingredients (i.e., magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, silica, rice powder, stearic acid, etc.) in their formulas to simply cut the volume of herbs in their formulas. Other ingredients take up space or room in the capsule or tablet and this allows the company to save money while giving their customers a watered down product. Are Dherbs.Com Herbs Safe To Take? Absolutely! It’s like asking, “is real food (i.e. fruits and vegetables) safe to eat? Herbs are noble foods in powdered or liquid form. They are 100% organic, digestible, and assimilable by the human body (unlike harmful, man-made pharmaceutical drugs which toxify the human body). People should actually ask their doctors “are these drugs safe to take?†instead of asking about herbs being safe to take. It is drugs (legal drugs, O-T-C) that kill hundreds of thousands of people per year whereas 0% herbs are killing people per year. Can You Take Other Dherbs.Com Products Together? Of course (unless you are performing one of our kits and regimens)! That’s like asking can you eat lettuce with tomatoes and carrots in a salad! If you are not performing one of our kits and regimens, i.e. Full Body Detox, Anti-Viral, or Weight Release, you can take our formulas together. You can drink our teas before or after taking our capsule formulas. It’s actually best to space out the formulas, but if you need to take everything together, you can. You have free will here and it will not hurt you or mess up the efficacy of the herbs. Not at all!

    Q: I hope all is well! I am writing this note to request a consultation with Djehuti . I can only imagine how busy you are, so I will be brief. But, feel free to let me know if you'd like more detailed information. I am contacting you regarding seeking treatment for severe clinical Depression. In addition I suffer from a severe lack of energy. I'd also like to treat several nutritional deficiencies. I am 35 years old. I have been suffering from Clinical Depression since I was about 16 years old. I began to address my Depression only about 3-4 years ago. Since that time I have struggled off and on with counseling with a Social Worker, psychotherapy with a Psychiatrist, group therapy with a Psychologist, several medications, outpatient hospitalization, CBT therapy, and natural and alternative treatments such as herbs, minerals, vitamins, yoga, exercise, meditation, fasting, and cleansing. But nothing has had any long term benefits. My Depression has become increasingly more severe. Over the past 1.5 years, my Depression has been at its worse. About a year ago, I lost my job due to the Depression. I then went into a major depressive episode that has lasted well over a year. I'd like to ask you for some direction in treating my Depression, lack of energy, etc. If you have some time, I'd love to do a consultation with you. Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I am interested in doing an intense 3-month fast and detox cleanse. I would really like to do a cleanse and detoxification to completely heal my body and get rid of the toxins, impurities, mucus, etc. Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you.

    A:

    Have you schedule a consultation yet? Drugs won't help you. The root cause is emotional and spiritual. Dherbs.com can help you! I'll have an article up on depression by December 1, 2008. Stay tuned to Dherbs.com!

    Q: I have the alternative diet and lifestyle manual and want to make sure that this applies to the respiratory condition as well. Can I have the rice bread with no gluten or wheat? or rice pasta being that I have sarcoid? Can I eat cold water fish or venison in small portions along with veggies? What about rice or soy milk or protein whey shake for breakfast once or twice a week? Thank you once again my breathing has improved greatly and I have ordered many more supplies to maintain what I have accomplished thus far due to your regimen. I am not a vegetarian so I want to make sure it is okay to have white meats. I will do whatever I have to do to live. I love and appreciate everything you have done to change and help me to heal myself.

    A:

    The manual applies when you are FINISHED with a cleanse or kit. Follow the regimen's diet. It clearly states NO COOKED FOOD. You are asking us about cooked food here. Stick to the diet plan and you will be alright! You are asking about foods no good for your condition. Whey is crap. Meat is no good. Grains are no good for you as well. They all produce too much mucus!

    Q: I am a woman who happens to be diabetic and now I am pregnant. I would like to know what foods I should eat and restrain from while I am still pregnant. I am also taking insulin to keep my blood sugar levels low enough as not to harm my baby. They are telling me I need to eat dairy and meat to meet the dietary requirements for a healthy baby. Please help me. As I know you know better.

    A:

    Congratulations on your pregnancy. New life is such a wonderful thing!

    I recommend that you drink our Pancreas tea (1-2 cups a day).

    Eat plenty of cinnamon, ginger, and cayenne pepper. Abstain from dairy products and meat products. These are no good for African people. If anything, eat meat-less (vegan) alternatives -- you can find plenty in our Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual ($11).

    Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. You can eat steamed vegetables and brown and/or wild rice (with vegan chicken if you like). Just switch meat for vegan products and switch to non-dairy products or dairy alternatives (which can be found in the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle manual).

    For great nutrition for your baby, I recommend the following Dherbs formulas: PRE-NATAL FORMULA, VITAMIN C FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, and Iodine Phosphate.

    For natural sugar, try Stevia, Agave Nectar, and/or maple syrup.

    I have 3 beautiful, healthy, and precocious vegan babies. A vegan diet coupled with proper nutrition makes for a healthy mother and child -- GUARANTEED!

Colgate: Remove Carcinogen From Your Toothpaste!

Colgate is continuing to use triclosan in their Colgate Total toothpaste despite efforts to phase the chemical out of other products. Triclosan is an antibacterial chemical linked to growth of cancer cells and disrupted development in animals. 

Colgate Total was approved by the FDA in 1997, but the agency depended on company-backed research and didn't count the effects of triclosan, which were discovered earlier this year. The research used to approve Total was dubious in the first place and is now outdated.

Quote of the day
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."
