Originally, humans discovered and cultivated seedless fruit from genetic mutations. It is a mutation or defect of the plant because it can no longer sexually reproduce. However, parthenocarpy of certain fruits on a plant is of value. Seedless fruits are very desirable especially in edible fruits with hard seeds such as orange, grapefruit, pineapple, and banana.
Naturally, all fruits have seeds. However, genetically engineered seedless fruits are in high demand because of their hassle-free convenience.
Have you really looked at a seedless watermelon? They are more oval-shaped, like a ball. If you find white seeds inside of a watermelon it is a sign of genetic engineering and this can be harmful to the human body.
The watermelons with white seeds lack vitality and are deficient in minerals and other nutrients. The texture will also be different than compared to the real thing. The genetically engineered product will also be unnaturally high in sugar, which is why it tastes sweeter. Basically, you will have unnaturally high sugar content and unnaturally low mineral content.
Eating the genetically engineered food will cause the body to lose minerals and thus energy. If the food you eat is devitalized, then you too will be devitalized, as you are what you eat.
Today, people are eating too many seedless fruits. People are eating seedless grapes, seedless pineapples, seedless bananas, seedless oranges, and seedless watermelon. Yes, these fruits are very sweet but again, they are also very low in mineral content, throwing off the body's natural balance.
Hybridization versus Genetic Modification
Genetic modification takes place when the plant's genes are permanently modified. Hybridization is when the seeds of two plants are cross-bred to cultivate certain traits.
Hybridization has taken place for thousands of years. Genetic modification is very young, and unproven. The only advantages to genetic modification are to make the plant more resistant to pests, pesticides and disease. There are no known advantages to humans ingesting genetically modified foods.
Disadvantages of eating seedless fruits
Since seedless fruits are genetically modified, it's important to know the disadvantages of eating genetically modified foods:
- The safety of genetically modified foods is not proven.
- There are early links between consumption of genetically modified food and cancer in humans.
- Genetically modified foods may be linked to the development of allergies.
- Genetically modified foods may introduce animal by-products into fruits and vegetables, which will cause significant issues for people with dietary restrictions.
- Genetically modified foods cannot be recalled.
- Foods modified to resist disease tend to pass along this quality to humans, which may be contributing to the decrease in the effectiveness of antibiotics.
- Genetically modified foods change the soil's flora and fauna, which make it difficult for long-term viability of the soil to grow future crops.
- The genetically modified genes of the food may impact the genes of the person eating it. This can create long-term and possibly irreversible health problems.
- Insects pollinating or eating genetically modified foods can develop the same types of resistance, which can throw agricultural ecosystems out of balance.
- All of the above challenges may be irreversible.
It would be wise to abstain from eating genetically engineered foods as well as hybridized foods, especially fruits. Eating organic and seeded fruits whenever possible is the healthiest option.

The ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL list great food alternatives during the detox. Food combining means do not eat foods not in the same category. Don't mix an acid fruit with a melon fruit. Don't mix fruit with vegetables. Don't mix acid fruit with sweet fruit, etc. Eat sweet fruit with other sweet fruit. Eat sub-acid fruit with sub-acid fruit. You wouldn't eat an orange (acid fruit) with an apple (sub-acid fruit). They are not in the same family.
Green leafy veggies may be combined with fruit-veggies (cucumbers and tomotoes). Fruit-veggies are really fruit. You can always tell because of the seeds. Technically, anything that contains seeds is a fruit!
Purchase a great smoothie and vegetable juice book that offers numerous smoothie recipes. Or, order the Full Body Detox Companion ($40) which is a near 100-page booklet that offers numerous recipes, tips, and advice during the detox.
Ideally, to make a smoothie, use a base (some kind of fruit juice), add some frozen fruit or non-frozen fruit (your favorite fruit), add a little ice and BLEND (for about 1 minute)! Wa la ... you have a fruit smoothie!
Hi, and thanks for the question.
Canned fruit is pasteurized which is a heat process that renders the food
not raw. Beans are cooked before they are canned and are not raw either.
Most canned food has added preservatives and salt. Best to avoid on a
cleanse. Look for pre sprouted beans and legumes at your local health food
store instead. Dried fruit is better than canned fruit just make sure they do not have added sugars or sulfured.
Hope that answers your questions.
YES!!!! Just watch your sugar because most diabetics have sugar problems due to bad sugar mixed with good sugar (from fruit -- fructose).
Yes, you may drink part of your fruits and vegetables.
YES! VEGETABLE & FRUIT WASHES are sold at good health food stores such as Whole Foods Market.
TECHNICALLY QUINOA IS A FRUIT BECAUSE YOU ARE CONSUMING THE SEEDS, BUT IT IS CONSIDERED A GRAIN. IT IS ALKALINE AND NOT MUCUS FORMING.
A: Hi, thanks for the question, All fruits and vegetables lower cholesterol with the exception of coconut oil. Two foods although not raw which in studies were shown to reduce cholesterol 20 points in a week were a cup of beans and a cup of oatmeal. Following a high carb version (fruit based) of the raw diet is the fastest way to lower overall cholesterol and regain homeostasis. A high fat gourmet raw will do little in lowering your overall cholesterol numbers as well as not help you regain lost health, Gary Gibson HHC CPT BMI VLCE www.theveganeffect.com
Could you explain a little further? What do you mean by allergic to the fruit? Do you have certain fruit allergies or getting a reaction to the fruit?
Changes in your body are going to occur. Know that your body builds up a culture of bacteria designed to digest your current diet. Your taste buds may have been hijacked by high fat, high sugar, high salt, chemically processed foods. It will take 3 days or more to begin the chance in culture. You will find as your body cleanses your taste buds will be significantly different.

Thanks for the question, I can definitely help you.
I am currently writing an eBook for www.dherbs.com called "Losing weight the healthy way." I have been a weight loss counselor for many years. I am also a health coach, personal trainer, bodymind nutritionist, and a vegan lifestyle coach.
When it comes to weight loss most programs want you to lose weight to get healthy. My mindset is to get healthy and lose weight.
In my health/fitness/nutrition coaching program www.theveganeffect.com I use a lowfat/high carb/ high raw/ nutrient dense/ high alkaline diet to achieve long term weight loss success. So far I am 100 percent in getting clients long lasting weight loss. If you are interested in my program please fill out the health history form on the side of the web page. We could have a free 1 hour initial consultation over skype to see how I can best help you.
Nuts are best kept to a minimum if you use them at all. Nuts are extremely high in fat and have the opposite omega 3- omega 6 ratio that is optimal for health. Seeds are best as far as ratios are concerned. Also nuts are truly easy to over eat and cause your nutrient ratios to be off.
A healthy vegan diet is a high raw fruitarian diet.
Breakfast: green smoothie. (500-1000 calories of fruits blended with a handful of greens and water)
Bridge: Dates and strawberries (500 calories)
Lunch: Salad with low sugar fruits (cucumber, tomato, squash, bell peppers) topped with fruit, beans, psuedo grains,
Bridge: 2-3 apples
Dinner: Raw wraps (collard greens) with low sugar fruit and tahini
Hope this helps

I WOULD ABSTAIN FROM EATING GRAPEFRUIT. THE GRAPEFRUIT IS ACIDIC (THOUGH ALKALINE) BUT IT WAS NOT A GOOD MIX CONSIDERING THE INGREDIENTS OF THE BLOOD FORMULA. EAT VEGETABLES INSTEAD BEFORE TAKING THE BLOOD FORMULA.
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!
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 â€œdeadâ€ 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 wonâ€™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 â€œother ingredientsâ€ is simply an umbrella term for â€œadditivesâ€ 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! Itâ€™s like asking, â€œis 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 â€œare these drugs safe to take?â€ 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)! Thatâ€™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. Itâ€™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!
All fruits and vegetables help to tone you to the weight you desire. Why exclude nuts? Weight comes from meat, dairy products, refined products, etc. Not natural foods! Don't worry about protein, carbs, etc. It creates confusion! Real food doesn't cause problems. Let all the dietary confusion go and you will be fine!
Our supplements are 100% natural plant life herbs. Our products work best with foods that are raw like fresh fruits, vegetables, raw nuts and raw seeds. Cooking foods take out the natural nutrients and enzymes that are beneficial to our health. Keeping a raw food diet can play a major role in our health.
Dherbs.com does not deal in numbers as we believe they are used to control people. Nature provides no numbers for minerals simply because they can't be isolated. Plants can only be determined to be rich in nutrients and we use certain plants considered complete foods to comprise our minerals and formulas.
Much appreciated from the heart, Beloved! Thank you for sharing that! I have a few e-books right now, including "The Mental Science Manual," "The Money, Wealth, and Prosperity", "The Love Manual" and a few others. You can find them on the website in the on-line store under "e-books." They'll all be published in the future into little books. I'm presently working on "Discovering Your Life's Purpose", so as to help people transition into their life's higher purpose. I quote David Wolf in my new article "Beware Hybrid and Genetically Engineered Foods" which will be on the Dherbs.com Home Page in about 2 weeks.
I am delighted you enjoy the Dherbs website. Thank you for your words! Green Vibrance is a pretty good product and would supply you with much needed nutrition as mostly all green foods will. My only concern with the product (Green Vibrance) is the mixing of ingredients. I don't believe in mixing fruits with greens due to the mixture of acids and alkalines. A green food product should be TOTALLY "green foods" only and nothing else. Green Vibrance mixes citrus/acids i.e. grape seed extract, acerola berry juice powder with green foods in addition to bee pollen, royal jelly, wheat germ, etc. Also, as a vegan (strict vegetarian), I object to BEE POLLEN and ROYAL JELLY being used. These are from living entities (insects/animals). I also object to SOY as well which is in the product! Other than this, Green Vibrance is a great product that I would endorse as a source of organic nutrition and dietary fiber. Dherbs MULTI-VITAMINS AND MINERALS FORMULA and other products that are in pill form are in VEGAN capsules that dissolve 100%. At Dherbs.Com, we only use the BEST! Our product is 100% botanical! However, as far as absorption, NOTHING absorbs better than liquid and nothing is better as a source of minerals, vitamins, amino acids than FULVIC ACID which we sell as KHEMETIAN GOLD. This stuff is POWERFUL! 1000% pure nutrition! Do your research on Fulvic and Humic Acid and you'll see why I'm saying what I'm saying! So basically, Beloved, either way (Green Vibrance or VITAMIN B COMPLEX and/or KHEMETIAN GOLD) you'll be getting much needed nutrition! It's your choice! We value and respect free will and we don't believe in competition nor do we have to belittle, negate, or condemn another product or company to make a sale. Our primary concern is that people get what they need nutrition-wise and it doesn't have to come from us. Our goal is not to just sell products, but to properly educate people about human health and that's why we offer 175+ free articles in addition to 100+ products! Peace and Love --- and thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com! p.s. - read our testimonials on our site and listen to (read about) the American people on what they are experiencing with Dherbs.Com products!
