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:
Justin: I was wondering if you could recommend any type or brand of Triphala. Also, I know you are against using dairy in the diet, however I’ve read from numerous sources that milk, cheese, and yogurt are important in balancing the vata dosha. Lastly, I’ve read that drops of sesame oil in the ear can help resolve tinnitus, what are your thoughts on this? Thanks, love the podcast. I’ve learned so much!
Anne: Hi Dr. Stephen! I recently listened to Kelli Tennant’s podcast where you were a guest and I have to say – wow! The knowledge that you have acquired is admirable and I am very curious to know more. I am seeking help in the sleep department as I have been experiencing a significant period of insomnia, as well as abnormal/cessation of menstrual cycle. I live in LA, do you see patients here? If not, do you have a list of trusted like-minded practitioners like yourself in Los Angeles/CA? Thank you!
Cara: Hi Dr Cabral! Fortunately, I have little stash of your CBD products while we patiently wait for yours to be available again.I recently wanted to try a brand of CBD plus THC tincture that a friend was trying because straight CBD still wasn’t quite helping me go to sleep. Ive been doing all the other protocols and supplements for sleep.I came upon a brand that sounds great, they post their lab/pesticide reports right on their product pages. They don’t make that 24:1 CBD THC blend anymore but they claim they have the strongest CBD oil. Its 750 mg per a 15 mil bottle. However they use non gmo soy lecithin and upon questioning they say that increases the bioavailability. It’s tested for residual pesticides and solvents. They say that’s why people say there’s is so much more potent because its more bioavailable. Since you’re the master at bioavailability, what are your thoughts on this? In gratitude, Cara
Dar: Hope you are having a great day. My question is regarding a 2 day fast – can you briefly go over the pros and cons of a water fast vs a juice fast. Which juice is the best to fast with in your opinion and for a water fast is it better to use lemon honey water or plain water. I am planning on doing the 7 day cabral detox in January. Thanks for all you do p.s. if I am asking too many questions through ask cabral let me know and I will cut down but it will be difficult since your answers are way too informative and it almost feels like having a conversation with a friend.
Melissa: Thanks for all of your insights, I love continuing to learn and improve my health and the health of my family. I have 2 opposite sleep issues. My son has Lyme disease. He was diagnosed over 10 years ago. He has done lots of different treatments throughout the years and is feeling good except for his chronic insomnia! Also my daughter deals with chronic fatigue, is tired all the time and sleeps a lot. If only they could share their sleep hours:) Appreciate any recommendations!
Chanel: Hi, What is the best method of testing for lyme? From my understanding, the blood test may not be the most accurate. I’ve heard Dr. Cabral mention that he has completed teachings/seminars on lyme and am wondering if those are yet available. Thank you for all you do. Your information is life-changing.
DB: Sensitive subject. Son has vitiligo on half of his two fingers and two small spots on the middle of his back. His tests for vitamin b, d, and autoimmune issues(that his pediatrician said are often associated with vitiligo) have come back negative. I heard you on a podcast briefly mention that hydrogen peroxide could potentially help. We give him nutrasea omega 3, smarty pants multivitamin and elderberry. What steps would you take if this was your 4 year old child as obviously this could affect his mental health later on and is worrisome as a parent? Are there better supplements I could get him. I’ll do anything for them. Many thanks for your input.
Malinda: I’ve been searching for the answer to what is the root cause of CRADLE CAP. Like you, I have a need to know the underlining issues that causes dis-ease in the body. There has to be a reason that some babies get cradle cap while other do not. All I see online and in my baby books is “there’s no known reason, it just clears up on its own.” My first child had it when he was a baby and after about a year it cleared up on its own. Now my 8 month old has it. I’ve decided this time around I want to really understand what is going on in my babies body. I am using Babyganics cleansing oil which contains oils like sesame seed and almond as well as calendula and black cumin to name a few ingredients, in addition to giving her 30C of Boiron Calcarea Carbonica a day, which is the homeopathic recommendation. Im noticing her scalp flaking more and it looks like it’s going away by using these products. However, I really want to know what has caused CRADLE CAP to happen in the first place because even though Im using these products and the issue seems to be resloving, is her body still in dis-ease even after the cradle cap has cleared up? Does her gut need more probiotics? Should I do a rotation diet? Am I eating something that is causing it, since she is breastfeeding? Someone on your facebook group page suggested that not washing your baby right after birth keeps it away, however I had all natural home-births and didn’t bath my babies for at least a week if not more. Also was suggested that a correction of balance of the skin flora/gut flora would locate its root cause. I want her body/ gut to be as healthy as it can be going forward. I’m curious as to what is REALLY causing it. If you have time, I also would like to know what is the root cause of hernias? I’ve searched your podcast but non address the root cause. After my husband had a inguinal hernia, it seems everyone we talk to has had a hernia or multiple hernias, which I want to avoid for my husband. Our bodies can’t possibly be that flawed. You rock, thank you for helping so many people! You’re a real life superhero.
Anthony: Hi Dr. Cabral. IHP student here. My dad has premature ventricular contractions his whole life but it’s ramping up in his 50s, to a debilitating point where it would happen every minute of every hour for HOURS until he takes Atenolol & Estazolam. Then it would slowly subside and the skipping & palpitations would be manageable. This would happen at grocery stores at checkout, non-stressful conversations, and sometimes throughout the night. His physician / cardiologist switched him to Metropolol & Clonazepan. Which exacerbated the condition and it’s still affecting him now. I think that taking 10 years of benzos caused a dependency that can’t make him switch from Estazolam? What is your take on this situation for short term immediate relief & long term root causes?
