HouseCall: Apples, Graduate Certifications, Seed Cycling Length, Firefighter Toxicity, Failed Meal, Medication Overload, Natural Shaving Cream

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows!

This is where we answer our community’s wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track!

Check out today’s questions:

Meghan: Hi Dr. Cabral- I love listening to your podcasts while I work out, especially the recent ones on Ayurveda. They keep me motivated and excited to make healthy choices throughout my week. I recently enjoyed your podcast on the 7 foods you eat daily and can’t live without. Your discussions on food have helped me fine tune my diet (like eating oats and berries more frequently!). In your podcast you mentioned that you’d like to hear if there was something your listeners eat on a regular basis and can’t live without. I eat a granny smith apple almost everyday. I’m prone to constipation so it’s really important that I get the right type and amount of fiber everyday. I don’t know what it is about an apple but it truly does keep the doctor away for me! That along with plenty of water of course. I’m curious to know your thoughts on that since I haven’t heard you talk much about the benefits of apples (I recently started listening within the last few months). Is it merely the fiber content or something else too? Or maybe I just found something that works well for my body! 

Misty: Hello! I’ve been listening to Stephen Cabral’s podcasts and I applied in October to go to school for integrative health but I’m nervous that the school is so new that I may not get the education I need. I am a registered nurse with a background in Intensive Care and post recovery from surgical procedures. I ultimately want to own my own health “center” with nutrition classes (for profit & community volunteer education for the less affluent), include a “fast food” section for healthy dieters, exercise center (local teachers for yoga/weight lifting/etc), and a homeopathy shop with local vendor items and aromatherapy.  I am, as of now, going to Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) for the Masters in Nutrition and Integrative Health. Do you or Stephen know of this school? It’s regionally accredited but I want to make sure I am getting what I pay for, it’s pretty expensive. They over post graduate certifications in aromatherapy, Chinese medicine, and yoga which I intend to obtain when I’m done. Please help! I need some advice. Sincerely, Misty 

Andrea: Hello! quick question! I started the SEED CYCLING that Dr. Cabral mentioned and advised. I was wondering how long I could expect to do the cycling before seeing changes in my menstrual cycle…? I know it depends on the person and that there are too many variables to conclude as to when any one woman will see its effects- but I am a 26yr old female, 130lbs, very healthy other than having no menstrual period for 2yrs. I have done the cycling for one month thus far and will continue it indefinitely. Any answers would be helpful! I’m grateful for your all!!!! Thank you in advance, Andrea 

Darrow: Hey. I am a firefighter working shifts day and night. I am reading your “A Man’s Guide To Muscle and Strength”. Great book. I am a vata pitta body type, more vata. Was wondering how I should go about training given my work schedule. Sometimes we have major calls that calls for hours of strenuous work in smoke filled environments. Or nights where we’re out working. Should I still try to train on those days or count that as a strength day. I’ve friends I train with in the construction industry who are working hard everyday who have similar concerns. Keep up good work. Also what do you recommend if one has been briefly exposed to smoke inhalation. What immediate measures he can do to minimise any potential damage? Thank you. 

Halle: Hi! Was just looking to see if there was a podcast from you guys about acid reflux and natural ways to diminish the symptoms. Thanks! 

Tyffany: I’m on day 7 of the 21-day Detox and had a failed lunch. I am in the military and had only dining hall fare to choose from. Will picking up right where I left off be ok or do I need to do something special to start over? 

Laura: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’m scheduled to have double jaw surgery (4-6 hours procedure) at the end of February 2019. I’ll have finished your CBO protocol by the end of January 2019 and will do your CBO Finisher Heal & Seal for one month before my surgery. I have some questions. 1. What would you recommend I do before my surgery in order to prepare I am ready? Any supplements I should be taking or natural remedies? I’ll be on your CBO Finisher but is there anything else I should incorporate?  2. For this surgery, I will be prescribed a lot of medication. I have to use an anti-nausea patch and Zofran (anti-nausea medication) before/during surgery. Afterwards, I know FOR SURE I will have to take antibiotics, nasal sprays (like Afrin, Simple Saline Spray, Decongestion Spray) and then possibly Oxycodone, Ibuprofen, Prescription Joint Medication, Mucinex, Tylenol, and Benadryl. As you can see a lot of medication! What do you recommend I do after surgery so that I can make sure my gut isn’t completely ruined after going through your whole CBO protocol? What supplements of yours do you recommend?  3. Any supplements/natural remedies you also recommend after surgery to help heal or to help with pain? I want to try and use as little medication as possible, but I just don’t know how bad I’m going to feel after.  Just so you know, I’ll have to be on an all liquid diet for 10 weeks after surgery! Thanks so much for all you do! Really appreciate it! 

Darrel: Hey Dr. Cabral. I am of African descent and have to shave my face regularly. I do so using a depilatory shaving powder called SoftSheen-Carson Magic. Listening your podcasts and reading Rain Barrel Effect has me wondering whether there are any major toxic drawbacks from using it. Searches on EWG website proved futile. If it is negative can you suggest alternative options. I cannot use razors because they cause ingrown hairs. Thank you, keep up great work.
