HouseCall: Dosha Mindset, Starting Detox, Natural Blood Thinner, Best Berry, Maintaining Gut Health, Vasectomy Revisited, Ulcerative Colitis, Amino Acid Supplement
Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend!
I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks…
Let’s get started!
Anton: Hi Dr. Cabral.If you only knew how much you have affected my life in a positive way you would be proud of yourself ;-)! I have listened to every episode of The Cabral Concept and I’m a IHP L1 & L2 student of yours :-)!Because I’m a client of your private concierge practice I could access to the Dosha breakdown. I have to say that I was a little bit surprised about my score.Not in a bad way I just thought that my dominant body type/dosha type was Vata, but it was Pitta.You have spoken about that the body type and mind can differ. You for an example have said that your mindset is 99% Pitta. But Pitta isn’t you dominant quality in your physical body constitution.I don’t know if this question make senses but do you have any tips or ideas how a person can find out their”Dosha- Mindset”?I understand that self awareness is a big one here, but I think this is really interesting and I would love to hear your view on this type of question.
Susan: Hi I wanted to know if you recommend the detox as a starting point for everyone, regardless of what health issues they’re dealing with. I was diagnosed several years ago with Lyme disease and candida and my major symptoms now are chronic fatigue, brain fog and trouble staying asleep at night. Also, I’m 54 years old and going through menopause. I could lose around 5 pounds but I wouldn’t want to lose much more than that. If I should start with the detox, would you suggest the 7, 14 or 21 days? Thank you Susan
Mark:Hi Dr. Cabral, I have listened to hundreds of your podcasts and have learned so much from you. I appreciate the fact that you portion your time out in the endeavor of passing on the wealth of health knowledge you have gained over the decades to ensure more people can be helped. I can’t thank you enough.I would like to ask you a question about a health issue my wife is having. First, some background: She is 71 years old, has had chronic back pain for 40 years and her pain has gotten the worse it has ever been this past year. Opioids no longer provide more than 5-10% of pain relief. She had an intrathecal pump implanted in her back a month ago. She is getting some better pain relief from the Prialt in the pump and has hopes that as the dosage of the Prialt is slowly raised, that she will get even more pain relief–enough to actually allow her to lead a more productive life and work on other health issues (gut) that have needed attention for years. Getting closer to the question: She had neck fusion surgery in 2010 that required her to be in the hospital for weeks. She was in a hospital bed for two weeks with no walking at all due to the intense post surgical pain. At the end of the two weeks, she had a Pulmonary Embolism that required a 14″ blood clot be removed from her pulmonary artery. She was given a 5% chance of living through the emergency surgery and she beat the odds. She had no history of blood clots–we feel that she developed the clot from being bedridden for two weeks. She was put on Coumadin by her PCP and has continued to take it to this day. We have asked multiple conventional doctors if she needs to continue taking the blood thinner for life, and they never really answer the question. We assume they don’t want to assume liability if she were told she could discontinue blood thinning medication but then formed another clot.. Here’s the question: I’m not going to ask you if she could stop taking Coumadin. What I would like to ask you is if you have ever had this type of question come up with a past patient of yours, and if so, were you able to help your patient decide whether or not to stop taking a blood thinner, and what types of considerations did you discuss to make the decision? Any feedback would be most helpful. Thank you again for taking my question, and thank you for being the giving person that you are.
Josh: What is more beneficial for a holistic diet approach, blueberries or cranberries?
Therese: Hi,Just finished the candida and sibo protocol. Feeling much better! Going forward what supplements should I take to best support my digestive system. Thanks! Best,Therese
Nick: H Dr Cabral,you have become the foundation for my health and wellness and I use you as a mentor to help me make the right choicesI have had 4 kids now and we have decided that that’s enough, so I was looking into vasectomy’s or natural options I listened to your house call 848 pod cast where it was touched on. What Iv taken from that is that although the procedure is 95% safe (1 in 2000 people have failure ) there are small failure risks with the procedure. Still you don’t really want to be having operations if there’s natural ways to do the same thing. you alluded to this in his pod cast, but didn’t actually say what they were? just that any natural alternatives vs a physical operation would be better than having a vasectomy. I just hoped that he or you might be able to provide some info or a link on what the Natural alternatives are?Regards Nick
Amanda: Cabral Team, I have really enjoyed listening to the podcast and hearing about the great work you all do. I am a 25 years old, female and was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis at 18. I have been taking my prescribed dose of 4.8G Lialda Mesalamine daily my entire diagnosis. I’m hoping to be pointed in the right direction. My most recent blood work shows elevated levels of bilirubin in my liver and am concerned that my rain barrel is almost full. Many thanks, Amanda.
Jay: Hi Dr Cabral. I am a professional athlete and I am wondering what you think about taking Essential Amino Acids for building muscle? Thanks!
