Frequently Asked Questions


There are so many different detoxification and diet programs out there. How do I know Dr. Morse’s formulas are any different from others and what makes them so unique?

Dr. Morse's formulas are unique in that they were designed by a Practitioner for other Practitioners after 50 years of research and clinical use.

They are made with the highest quality organic or ethically wildcrafted herbs* (our supplier knows each grower personally!) and are extremely fresh.

We use a higher concentration of herbs to alcohol in our tinctures (1:4 vs. 1:5 typically used in other herbal preparations) for maximum potency, and our formulas are made in small batches on a regular basis to ensure the freshest products on the market.

And finally, they have been used in a clinical setting for over 30 years with great success.

So we can honestly say from experience that these herbal formulas work—and work extremely well! Dr. Morse has a worldwide reputation in his successful work using regenerative detoxification to restore the human body back to health and vitality.

Can I take Dr. Morse’s herbal formulas along with other products and supplements? What about if I am taking medications from my doctor?

Yes, herbs are non-hybrid foods and are generally safe to take while taking other products and/or chemical drugs.

However, there are circumstances where you will need to exercise caution.

Therefore, we highly recommend that when taking medications, you work directly with one of our counselors or another qualified Health Practitioner.

How long will one bottle last?

Tinctures, glycerin and capsules will last two weeks based upon the standard dosage of two droppersful or two capsules, three times per day. This is for a weight range of 75-150 lbs. If your weight falls under or over this range, it will effect the length of time your bottle lasts.

One squeeze of the plunger will typically pull up one dropperful of tincture (or glycerin). Therefore, for a two dropperful dose, it may be necessary to draw up two single dropperful doses.

I noticed that there are 6 different GI Renew formulas. How do I know which one is right for me and how many to take?

The standard dose is two capsules three times per day. However, this should be altered based on your personal needs.

The goal is one well-formed bowel movement within 20 minutes to an hour after each meal. If you are going more or less than this, adjust the bowel formula until you reach this goal. To choose which bowel formula is best, determine your current bowel habits:

GI Renew #0 is for excessive movements and diarrhea-type stools.

GI Renew #1 is for loose stools and those who have 3 or more movements a day.

GI Renew #2 is for one bowel movement a day, or someone who misses a day once in awhile.

GI Renew #3 is for someone whose bowels move every other day to every 3rd day.

GI Renew #4 is for someone whose bowels move every third day or so.

GI Renew #5 is for someone whose bowels are not moving much at all and needs a big boost to get going.

I noticed the Traditional Uses for the formulas are no longer in the product descriptions. Where did they go?

Having disease conditions listed was problematic for a few reasons, and in all honestly is contrary to what Dr. Morse teaches.

Any "disease" (or set of symptoms described by mainstream medicine) always goes back to acidity and lymphatic stagnation. Dr. Morse has worked for years to educate people of this fact-alongside offering the formulas to address these and genetic weaknesses.

So, we felt it was best to remove traditional uses for the time being.

Can your products be refrigerated?

Our products can be refrigerated, but it is not necessary. Just keep the herbs out of extreme heat or direct sunlight (don't leave them in your car or on a sunny kitchen windowsill).

The teas and capsules will last longer if refrigerated.

Are your products tested for metals?

Our manufacturer works with well-known suppliers to obtain the highest quality herbs possible. The daily suggested use of our formulas keeps most, if not all, of our products well under any concerns over potential limits for metals.

However, herbs/ingredients are tested when they are known to be high in heavy metals, and/or if those ingredients are in large enough amount that they may pose a risk for heavy metal adulteration.

Our manufacturer also constantly monitors FDA watch lists for herbs that are found to be at risk for heavy metals and other types of adulterants, and tests each ingredient as necessary.

Are your products irradiated, or won’t x-rays and scans during shipping damage their efficacy?

None of our products are irradiated at any time prior to us shipping them. They are not irradiated during production and are delivered to us by freight (driven on a truck, not flown on a plane).

USPS only irradiates packages to the White House, Congressional Building and other government offices in a certain zip code range in Washington DC.

UPS irradiates anything that goes on a plane. Ground shipments are not irradiated.

The x-ray scanners used by all carriers are not enough to damage the integrity of organic products.

It is uncertain whether packages are irradiated at borders, this will vary by customs office. If this is a concern, we recommend international members call their local customs office and inquire about their policies.

We cannot say for sure whether the amount of radiation from an x-ray is enough to degrade the herbs-we're not sure if anyone can answer that with absolute certainty.

However, we frequently ship products of all types (tinctures, capsules and teas/powders) to members via UPS Next Day Air or UPS 2 Day, and have never had anyone complain about the efficacy of the herbs.

So it would appear that the x-rays used for air shipments are not enough to negatively affect them, at least not as far as we have seen.

Are your formulas gluten-free? What about the ones that contain wheatgrass?

Our formulas are gluten-free. The tinctures are made with sugarcane alcohol instead of grain alcohol, and we only use wheatgrass (the seed is the part of the plant that contains gluten; grass/leaves do not).

Do your products contain any of the major allergens?

Very few of our formulas contain ingredients considered to be allergenic. Two formulas contain tree nuts; the Superfood Explosion (almond powder), and The Ultimate Herbal Blend Salve contains coconut oil. (Please note that only the salve contains coconut oil, the Tincture, Capsule, Glycerin and Loose Tea versions of this formula do not contain any allergens).

Parasite M, Parasite G and Heal All Herbal Blend contain black walnut hull. While these products do carry a cautionary tree nut warning on the label, they do not contain black walnut itself (only the outer hull). The tree nut warning is required due to the potential, no matter how minimal, for cross-contamination during processing.

What is the difference between tinctures, glycerin and capsules? Is one form more effective than another?

Any herbalist will tell you that a tincture is the most potent form of an herbal preparation you can get. However in our experience, the capsules and glycerin formulas have proven to be just as effective (if not more so!).

There is some difference in the way the body will absorb and metabolize the herbs in different forms—alcohol metabolizes directly from the stomach so you feel it’s effects almost instantly.

Capsules pass through the digestive system and therefore take a bit longer to take effect. A few of our formulas are designed to target specific areas so they are only available in the optimal form for that goal (the Spasm Calm, for example, is only available in tincture form because you do not want to wait 20 minutes for absorption!).

But for the most part, choosing which form of a formula to use is simply a matter of preference and what will help you be most consistent with taking your herbs.

What should I do if the formula or version (i.e. Capsules/Tincture/Glycerin) on my protocol is not available?

Do not let this deter you from your detox!

There is absolutely no reason that you cannot use capsules or glycerin in place of an out of stock tincture (or vice versa)!

If you need assistance with substitutions for an entire formula (something that is only available in tincture form, for example, and that tincture is out of stock) please contact us and we will be happy to let you know what Dr. Morse recommends in place of that formula.

Do not let one formula keep you from the benefits to come from the rest of your protocol—simply substitute or add the missing formula when it is back in stock!

What is the difference between the various blood formulas you offer?

Blood Circulation: This formula was developed to help optimize blood viscosity and improve circulation systemically throughout the body. Like the Blood Support formula, it will remove obstructions (both lipid and mineral) while supporting and strengthening the entire vascular system.

Bleeding: This formula is hemostatic in nature and was formulated to stop mild to moderate internal and external bleeding.

Blood Support: This formula was developed for cleansing the blood of impurities and strengthening the entire blood system. It alkalizes the blood and vascular tissues and helps remove metals and mineral and lipid deposits.


How long do I need to stay on the formulas?

Everyone is different. Some issues will reverse quickly (in 3 to 4 months) and other deeper issues may take up to 9 months, 12 months, or even longer to resolve.

Some of our weaknesses and congestive issues are deep-seated and genetic, so it takes a lot of effort and a serious time investment to eliminate these deeper issues.

Time and patience heal all wounds.

Will the herbs work if I don’t do the diet?

The herbs will work if you don't do the diet, but it will take longer to resolve your health issues. Remember: "What you eat, drink, breathe, and what you put on your skin is your health or your disease."

How do I know which herbs to take?

The ideal would be to work directly with one of our counselors.

If you can't do that, request a product list and/or review the herbs available on the website, and use the Health Assessment Form to help guide you to the proper formulas.

Can I take more than one formula at a time?

Yes, the average is 6 tinctures and 3 capsule formulas at a time.

What if I can’t handle alcohol?

The amount of alcohol in the herbal formulas is about the equivalent of eating a ripe banana.

But for those who are very sensitive, we have written instructions on how to 'burn off the alcohol'; it's easy.

Additionally, many of our more popular formulas are available in glycerin and/or capsule form (which are alcohol-free).

Can I give my pets these formulas?

Yes, pets respond wonderfully to Dr. Morse's formulas!

Formulas should be administered according to weight.

You can use the weight guidelines on the bottle, or for very small animals, calculate the dose based on one single drop per 8 pounds of body weight.

Can I give my children these formulas?

Yes, children also respond beautifully to Dr. Morse's formulas.

Children's doses should be determined based on weight. Calculate the dose based on one single drop per 8 pounds of body weight.

What if I can’t afford all 7 of the Ultimate Detox Kits? How do I continue to work on myself?

The best way to continue working on your issues is by continuing on the raw food diet. Your body needs the living enzymes and properties in these foods to continue cleaning and rebuilding.

Then, you can also purchase individual herbs in bulk tea form from a quality Herb Shop or Health Food Store, or use Dr. Morse's Heal All Tea. Or you can take as few or as many of the formulas as you can afford (up to 10 or so at a time).

You may wish to work on the most important weaknesses you have first.

The Fab Four Kit (which includes an Kidneys & Bladder, GI Renew, Lymphatic System, and Endocrine formula) is always a priority and an excellent place to start!

What if I only wanted to do a couple of formulas at a time? Would it be a waste of time and money?

No, it would be a wonderful treat for your body to be able to start detoxing at any level, no matter how small.

There isn't a person on the planet that couldn't benefit greatly from the detox process and every little bit helps!

Keep going a little bit at a time. Your body will respond by helping you to enjoy a more vibrant level of good health than you ever thought possible!

I am very ill, have very little funds, and am desperate to get healthy. Where should I start?

The first step to getting started is moving to an 80-100% raw food diet!

Your body needs the living enzymes in fresh fruits and vegetables to start healing itself. Such a diet can and will work wonders in your life.

Then, little by little, add whichever herbal formulas you can afford, according to the issues that are your greatest priority.

It's essential to always start with the Ultimate Detox Kit Weeks 1 & 2, as these particular formulas will detox the most vital areas of your body.

Also, fasting is powerful. A three-day fresh grape juice or lemon juice fast will speed up your level of detoxification.

If you have the strength and determination, try doing a 100% raw food diet and see the fantastic results in your level of detoxification and regeneration. It will amaze you!

How do I know if I should take a Glandular?

Glandular products are tissue-to-tissue support intended to be a “power punch” to the area. If you are in a hypo state or would like to give an area a boost, then a glandular may be right for you!

How do I decide what glandular products I should take?

You can choose based on the area of the body you are wanting to address, or if you prefer, you can work with a Detoxification Specialist to receive a personalized protocol.

How long should I take the glandular products for?

We generally suggest taking a glandular product for between four to six weeks. They are intended to be used as a “power punch”, and we therefore do not recommend taking them long term.

What is the suggested dose for the glandular products?

It varies from product to product, and the suggested dosage is listed on the bottles.
