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!
Derek: Hi Dr Cabral. I am a registered holistic nutritionist and have been listening to your podcast for over 2 years now and it is very informative and inspiring! I am just wondering if you use homeopathic medicine at all in your practice and what your thoughts are on it? I have wanted to learn a little more about it but am having a hard time finding some good resources on homeopathy . Looking forward to hearing back and thank you so much for your wealth of knowledge!
Jenna: I am curious on your thoughts on using algae or algae oil supplements for Omega 3s vs using fish oil supplements. What are the pros & cons of each? To my understanding, the fish get their Omega 3s from the algae originally, so it makes sense to go straight to the source instead of the "middle man" but fish oil still seems to be more widely recommended instead of algae. What do you think?
Aaron: Dr. Cabral, thanks for sharing so much in your podcasts. I am interested in ayurveda and wonder if you would consider incorporating more ayurvedic terms and analysis in your podcasts. I was reading a translation of the Sushruta Samhita before I discovered you, and am now enjoying Dr. Vasant Lad's Ayurveda textbooks. You've recommended some other ayurvedic books that are on my list, and eventually I'll make it to the Caraka Samhita, but it's a LOT of "alternate" terms to take in! When you answer house calls and give the highlights before referring to a previous podcast, the repetition really helps me with tying things together and remembering them. Adding ayurveda would be a very sweet cherry on top! Would you also consider Dr. Lad's pulse analysis with your topics? It's very complex and your expertise is appreciated, as always! Best regards for you, your family, and your great team!
Mary: Hello,I have been a listener of the podcasts. Thank you for all of the information you share. I recently went to see a functional medicine doctor. I am the mother of 3 boys under age 6 and experiencing brain fog, short attention span, difficulty with memory, anxiety, increased irritability etc. All of my labs came back within normal range. I did a Brain Core brain mapping test and it showed low beta waves (75% dysregulated). The other brain waves were only 'off' by 5-20%. I am considering doing neurofeedback sessions with the doctor. He also suggested supplements, and a good diet to support brain health.Everything sounded reasonable etc, but considering the time and money aspects I wanted to hear Dr. Cabral's take on neurofeedback. I searched the podcasts, but nothing popped up in the search bar. Do you think neurofeedback has benefits? Thanks for your help!
Mo: Hi Dr. Cabral,I can't begin to tell you how amazing your teachings have been for me and my family. Absolutely amazing and life changing. You are a gift to us all!My question is about protein intake.I know you have spoken about this many, many, many times but I am not sure if you have mentioned anything for someone that is very active. I am a pitta-vatta (based on answering your questions from episode 900-907-914), 6'3, 31yr/0, 190lbs, 7-9% BF. Prior to your teachings I trained heavy and intense 4-5x a week but since I found you and your book and listened to nearly 800 episodes so far (I listen to about 4-8 episodes a day lol). I now train full body heavy interval/tri-set/EMOM/ usually 1-2x, 1x medium to light training, and 1-2x just light easy cardio per week. I feel great now, not as burnt out as I used to feel before your teachings.My question is, do I still need to do about half my body weight in protein or would you look at doing more? I don't get hungry after eating for usually 3 hours. I do your famous purple shake every morning and have calculated my macros to be around 110g of protein, 220g of carbs, 90g of fat on average with 2 flex meals per week which I fast the next day.Thank you again for all you do, the world needs more Dr Cabrals! All the best, Mo.
