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:
Anonymous: Hi Doc! Asking for a 36 year old male. He ran the big 5 last year. I’m not sure on the particulars of his results, but I know he has done the detox CBO. Chronic back pain, a reverse curve in his neck shown in chiropractic X-rays. Chronic high blood pressure. Healthy weight, exercises diligently, healthy whole food plant based diet, fairly decent sleep, regular corrective chiropractic care. We recently pieced together that he has systematic vein problems. Temporal Arteritis (self diagnosed), Vericose veins, hemorrhoids, and Varicocele of the scrotum. What would cause this and how can we support his venous/circulatory system? He’s been dealing with the varicocele since teen years. Left temple vein pain came a couple of years ago as a result of excessive Wim Hoff breathing. Thanks so much!!
Anonymous: Hi dr cabral, I wanted to ask you about your thoughts on raspberry leaf tea to reduce painful period cramps. I have painful periods and I’ve heard that raspberry leaf tea can help ease the pain. Do you have any studies that you can share regarding this? I’d really like to get your insight on how I can reduce period pain. Thank you.
Cara: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m an IHP2 and I have a friend who has a daughter who has suffered for over 2 years. I have not worked with them yet. However I think this case needs more expertise. She frequently gets lockjaw and it’s also osteomyelitis of the jaw, jaw infection, scar tissue from two surgeries, jaw bone deterioration. She’s also a bit auto immune. We’ve seen 4 different naturopaths, 15 different doctors, holistic and regular, mental therapists, all kinds of different western and eastern type of doctors. It’s really tough because everyone really doesn’t know. They are doing myofunctional + oral posture work currently. She has gone from being vibrant and happy to hurting and shy.
Ana: Hi Doc! What are your thoughts on onions and garlic? I’m aware that they’re not CBO approved but if someone doesn’t have any candida or bacterial overgrowth or any other digestive issues, do you think they should be avoided?According to Ayurveda, onion is tamasic (makes people irritable, agitated and aggressive) in nature and garlic to be rajasic (energy-draining, disturbed sleep and drained energy) in nature. As per Ayurveda, both these ingredients produce excessive heat in the body. However, these vegetables are highly recommended in Naturopathy because raw, crushed garlic has potent therapeutic benefits and red onion for example has loads of antioxidants including quercetin. How often do you consume those foods if you don’t mind me asking? Once a week or more regularly?
Lindsey: Hello Dr. Cabral, I know you will have an answer to this question. I have asked 3 naturopaths, my midwife and pelvic floor therapist and none have ever done this, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. I had a c-section last October and wanted to use proteolytic enzymes to work on the scar tissue in my body. Any issues you see? Can I do it while breastfeeding? Recommended dose? Also, what would you use to strengthen (or make more elastic) the tissue in my uterus, so that I may have less issues in that area if I want to have another baby via VBAC? Thank you for your insight.
