HouseCall: Zinc Nausea, Mimosa Pudica, Topical Iodine, Ionic Foot Baths, Far Infrared Sauna Sweating, Grand Mal Seizure, Plastic Surgery Effects, Body Type Suggestions, Night Time Urination
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!
Noel: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m a huge fan of all you teach and share – thank you!!! I’ve collected 5 brief questions below, and I totally understand if you cannot address them all. : )1) Zinc — Are there any forms of zinc that do not cause nausea? Or that cause less nausea than others? Some people avoid it, even with food due to the association. 2) Mimosa Pudica seed — What does this bind or “scrub” exactly?You’ve mentioned MPS, but I don’t believe I heard you say what it is scrubbing or removing. 3) What are your thoughts about using topical iodine for skin manifestations, such as basal cell carcinoma or even NOT BSC?Is clear iodine just as effective, like for the face? How about frankincense oil for a similar purpose? 4) Ionic foot baths — do you find these helpful for heavy metal detox? 5) Far Infra-red Sauna — Does one need to sweat for these to support heavy metal detox? Is it still beneficial to use FIR if one is not using enough heat or time to sweat? Thank you! I’m so grateful for all you share!: ) Noel
COD: Hi Dr. Cabral, a few years back I had a grand Mal seizure (5 minutes long around noon the day after a night out) for the first time at the age of 22, and ended up having 3 in the space of 3 months total, all the same as the first type. No history of it in my family, MRI and eeg test we’re clear, and saw 2 separate neurologists who put my seizure trigger down to alochol+ a night out, as that was the only common denominator, so they diagnosed me with epilepsy, put me on keppra 2x a day which I’ve been on for almost 3 years. I’ve had more intense nights out before and after any seizure and this has never happened. Having been on meds almost 3 years now, I saw a nautropath who mentioned that alochol and a night out is not enough to make it happen. I wanted to know your opinion, as of recent I’ve been thinking of coming off the meds, and question if I should even be on this medicine or if I even have epilepsy? (Before any action I will discuss with my neurologist but Im intrigued to know your thoughts)
Lin: Hi Dr Cabral, I felt Quite well before I got 1/2 a cc of Restalyne injected into a small wrinkle in my nasal l. fold by a plastic surgeon 7 months ago. After the injection I immediately got a mild case of hives and felt a tingling/ hives sensation all over the skin in my body. My knees also feel swollen too. They crack when I bend. ( I’ve never experienced this). Should I continue to work on gut inflammation which I have a little leaky gut (but no h pylori or parasites) or look at inflammation labs? What do you recommend?
Selina: Hi Doctor Cabral, I loved your series of podcasts about Ayurveda last year and I was wondering if you could maybe do a podcast about most common ‘mixed’ Ayurveda body types? For example, I’m kapha/vata: I’m pear-shaped and it’s hard for me to lose weight. But on the other hand, my joints are prominent, wrists and ankles are super thin, my skin dry/rough and I’m always cold. So I’m very confused how to eat, work out, etc. as these two body types often get totally different lifestyle advice. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts about this. Thank you so much in advance! Selina
Darren: Hey Dr Cabral. Hope all is well with you and your family. If I remember correctly, you recommend limiting liquid consumption at night to facilitate uninterrupted sleep. However, when I meet the daily water consumption requirements before 7 pm, and go to bed, I still get up at least twice to go urinate. And it’s a lot. Is it because even though you limit water there’s still fluid there carrying out the necessary processes and eliminating waste? Or is there potentially something wrong? I’m a male in early 30’s, fit vata pitta type. Or is the size of one’s bladder a factor here? As always keep up great work
