On the one hand, I’m very happy to see that Ayurvedic Medicine is finally getting its day in the spotlight, but…
 
At the same time, I worry that its deep level of ancient teachings is becoming watered-down and viewed as more of a “fun” way to look at your health and body…
 
My issue with this is that if we dilute down these Ayurvedic teachings we may lose the wisdom of how to use nature to begin to heal our mind & body…
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 1705 I’d like to share with you the best balancing Ayurvedic herbal adaptogens for calming and energizing your nervous system and hormones - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

It’s important to understand that you are where you are right now in life for a reason…
 
Sometimes that’s good and sometimes it’s bad, but nevertheless, once we accept where we are in this present moment, we then begin to take back a sense of control…
 
It is at this point we can decide if we want our future to resemble our past…
 
For details on why your past is not predictive of our future (unless you choose it to be) tune in to today’s #CabralConcept 1704 for all the details - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

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!   

Kayla: My 9 year old son has been anxious and possibly dealing with depression post covid 19. I have noticed that he has started to pull out his hair (Trichotillomania), I was wondering if you can recommend any natural supplements for anti-depressants for anxiety, depression, and adhd? Thank you. 

Dar: Hey Dr. Cabral. Hope all is all well with you and your family. I am well aware there's no silver bullet and aging is an inevitable natural process but for men 40+ is there anything they can take to maintain/increase muscle mass, fitness gains, sex drive, performance without resorting to HRT? Maybe it's vanity but I knew what I was capable of naturally, the physique and performances are slowly regressing. I am an otherwise healthy person, I use your supps, follow your men's guide to fitness and they're really good and I'm forever grateful but I see some of my peers on HRT who look better than and claim they're performing better than they were in their 20's. I don't want to go that far because I don't know future side effects. Are there any at all? Anyway, keep up great work.

Nicole: Can you start the CBO protocol while taking methotrexate for RA? My mom takes SQ injection 1x per week. She has never tested positive for RA markers but has been sick for couple years now and no doctors could find the answers so they say she has the s/s of RA. Her s/s are severe joint pain and swelling in right wrist, fatigue, frequent diarrhea, brain fog, acne, random rashes/skin issues that come and go, anxiety/depression, body aches and just never feels good. She used to have horrible allergies/sinus infections almost year round that have improved since she changed her diet. She tries to eat paleo but does cheat and feels sick when she does. She mainly cheats on sweats because she craves sugar. This all started after 2 unexpected tragic losses in her life followed by a clostridium difficile infection. She received antibiotics for this and many for prior sinus infections. She is retired on fixed income and can't afford testing but hoping she can start a protocol. Where would you start? Doctor also has her on magnesium citrate should she continue this during protocal.Thank you for sharing your gift with others!

Judy: Hi Dr. Cabral,I notice when I wake up in the morning, my blood sugar often ranges from 83-110 which I heard is not optimal. I know you mentioned 16+hour fasts are not right for everyone. I am a 37yo female, lean, mostly vata / pitta, who has low progesterone. When I tested with your team, my A1C was right at the borderline around 5.6. Do you recommend fasting until my blood sugar goes below 80 or breaking the fast even when my blood sugar is elevated?

Lorena: I’m so frustrated Dr Cabral! I did the CBO Protocol after finding some yeast in the OAT and after completing it, I did another OAT 3 weeks later to check that it was gone. The OAT results were even worse! It showed more yeast and now even Clostridia markers that I didn’t have before! How is that even possible? When I finished the CBO I went to Greece and yes, was having one glass of wine every night and a lot of Greek salads which as you probably know, involves a lot of onion. I don’t know if that was the issue or what happened but I was very strict when following the CBO. What do I do now? Do I do it again? I really cannot believe this…

Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :)Thank you for this podcast, it is so informative & amazing, helps so much and also we can learn a lot about health and healthy living.. I cannot go a day without it!My question today is about Swiss biological medicine and dr. Thomas Rau.. I finally started working with a nutritionist who is a certified Paracelsus health practitioner and she uses his protocols and knowledge.. are you familiar with his work considering he is one of the leading biological medicine people in Europe? I would love to know your opinion on his work and protocols (which can be similar to what you preach) and maybe you could invite him to be on your podcast on a Thursday talks with Cabral? :)Thank you for all your answers and hard work, love to all,Lara

Darren: Hey, good day Dr. Cabral. What are your thoughts on float tanks/float therapy and sensory deprivation tanks? Are the supposed benefits real or not? Keep up great work

 

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

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: 

Haley: This is my favorite podcast and love starting my days learning from you, thank you! For your product review, I would love your thoughts on the BiomeFX lab. My doctor wants me to do this lab, and I would love a second opinion. I had a parasitic infection a few years ago and most recently, candida overgrowth (but no detected parasites one year ago). I haven't done any labs in a year, and I think I may still have candida overgrowth and would like to know if I also have parasites/mold toxicity. Thank you for your input since you're truly an expert!Link to lab recommended by naturopath: https://microbiomelabs.com/home/products/biomefx/?gclid=CjwKCAjw4rf6BRAvEiwAn2Q76rUMGdGLWsVkKLG-3UMEZsumpfbOOposiy48CVX3I--OQcvucYHFkhoCEGMQAvD_BwE

Mo: Hey Dr Cabral, Mo here again! My question today has to do with bowel movements. I did the 21 day detox, the parasite protocol and the intestinal cleanse. Doing the CBO as well with GSE drops. I’ve been noticing that the past couple weeks instead of my normal 2-3 bowel movements which were all solid and formed properly, I’m getting only one bowel movement (first one) that is formed and normal. The other 1-2 after are either liquid or very small bits. I haven’t changed anything in my meals. I literally eat the same meals everyday, breakfast lunch and dinner everyday is the same. Smoothie (purple crush), Mediterranean lunch and dinner. Any ideas what this might be for? I don’t ever bloat, no pains, no cravings (I force myself to do cheat meals lol).Thank you as always for what you do, greatly appreciate your time and assistance!-biggest fan Mo

Josh: Hi dr Cabral. Thank you for all your wisdom. After my tick bite (rmsf) in 2015 I still find myself having symptoms. I took a genetic test and it said I have mthfr with mast cell activation and my body is poor at getting rid of histamine. How can I calm mast cells down and keep histamine at bay. Thank you

Simon: Hello Dr Cabral! I have been following the protocols of the Rain Barrel Effect for 6+ months now and am finally starting to see some improvement in my chronic IBS-D and overall health. One thing that I have really been struggling with however is finishing dinner a few hours before bed, due to work hours, family schedules, social norms, and trying to go to bed earlier. I typically finish 1.5hr before bed and try not to eat too much (which is difficult for me) or eat hard to digest foods (often out of my control). I was wondering if there were any protocols to 'increase digestion' speed or mitigate the negative effects of eating close to bedtime? Some which occurred to me were digestive enzymes (or natural substitutes like ginger or bitters) or apple cider vinegar before the meal. What would you suggest? Thank you once again!

Kristin: do you have any details on Myasthenia Gravis conditions

Jasmine: Hello Dr. Cabral, I first want to say thank you so much for all of the knowledge you share via your podcast and in The RBE. I am reaching out to ask about which type of test would you recommend in diagnosing a gut based issue. I am unsure if I should get a colonoscopy, ultrasound, or something else.Since the summer of 2018, I have been dealing with on and off again constipation, diarrhea, bloating and abdominal pain. It gets in the way of everyday normal activities, like teaching and being out somewhere (concert, gym, etc). I have gone to several doctors, including GI specialists, who in most part have ignored my issues. Recently, I have been having severe constipation and will not have a bowel movement for 3-4 days, and will only have one after I drink senna tea. Besides this issue, I am a healthy 29 year old female who works out four times a week, is within an optimal BMI range, sleeps 7-8 hours a night (some nights are more difficult than others to stay asleep), drinks almond milk, and eats organic/ grass-fed when I can. After receiving a diagnosis, I would like to work one-on-one with you to solve this issue and become healthy again.
