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:
Kate: Can you talk about nail fungus? I have it on all nails in one hand only for two years and nothing has worked. Ive tried anti fungals, and various oils and home remedies.
Lorena: Hello! I am a 25 year old healthy woman, I healed myself from a wide range of health issues by following your protocols so thank you very much for that! I continue my journey with the daily foundational protocol L3 & eat a predominantly plant-based diet with some good quality animal protein twice a week. I eat 3 meals a day and exercise 5x a week. I usually do 12-14h fast on a daily basis (sometimes 17h accidentally on weekends when I sleep in) but I was thinking of implementing the 24h fast that I know you do on Mondays myself haha! I don't want to lose more weight but I would do it for health reasons. Do you think it is a bad idea given that I'm a woman and it might be taking it too far? Or do you think that 24h once a week is fine? I wouldn't exercise on that day and would work from home relaxed. I'm a Vata body type so don't want to take it too far with my nervous system but I really want to get those autophagy benefits.
Darren: Hey, Dr Cabral. I appreciate all you do for the community. You may likely receive this either during or after the Olympic games but I've a question with regard to the controversy surrounding two young athletes. Christine Mboma and Beatrice Masilingi both 18 years old from Namibia are among the fastest in the world over 400m in world even at that age. However even though both of them were born female and grew up as such, the international governing bodies are saying be they must take drugs to reduce their naturally-occurring testosterone if they want to compete in women's 400m mean because their naturally occurring testosterone is considered too high. They must medically limit that level to less than 5 nmol/L, double the normal female range of below 2 nmol/L. The question here is whether taking medication to reduce natural testosterone is healthy and is there an ayurvedic or natural health means to do so for other women or female athletes who may find themselves sin that situation. Thank you.
Kathy: I am a 65 year old female with a white circle in middle of back about 4 inches in width and white spots under arm encompassing armpit. Looks like pigment issues but also where I have rubbed for years when I run 25 miles a week. Could It be from rubbing or something else going on.
Anonymous: Hi dr cabral.. thank you for all you do! No one wants to ask this question for sure but maybe i will help someone else too. In short i seem to have for the last couple years my stomach seems to have a hard time digesting? Strong gas. No pretty way to say it. Sometimes it CAN be after your regular culprits like brocoli or kale etc .. but it seems un normal. Would a probiotic help or make it worse or can it help? I tried the healthy gut support hoping it would help and Even the dns seems to contribute to it.. Something tells me i skipped a step there but im honestly feeling a little stressed/anxious about committing and getting through the cbo protocol.. i just want to feel like my best self please help! all the best :)
Hayley: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’ve had neck pain off an on for years. What makes your neck pop and crack some days but not others? I don’t typically notice it on days when I don’t hurt. Do you have an recommendations for a way to support my neck while I sleep since most of my neck pain starts over night and I notice it when I wake. Thanks!
