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!
Mia: I have been struggling with bad acne on my neck jawline and chin. I’m taking estroblock 2 times per day I’m pretty healthy. Also I am 27 years old and I am so tired 10 days before mensturation! So very tired, brain fog and acne before my period. Do you ever suggest progesterone cream before period?
Mark: Hi Dr Cabral. Why don't you use the GI-MAP GI Microbial Assay Plus Stool Test? I've heard that it is the best parasite checking stool test on the market because it use DNA analysis. Would love your thoughts.
Nina: Hi Dr Cabral - LOVE LOVE LOVE your show, i was recently introduced through an Ayurvedic podcast I listen to where you were a speaker. What i love is how you mash up ayurvedic, TCM, and other functional medicine areas to address health. As it should be! I have found so much wisdom in Ayurveda to address a bout of insomnia 2 years back where dr's were pushing sleep meds and I fortunately found holistic health, and of course discovered nothing is 'just' insomnia, etc etc. Have come a long way and incorporated different healthy practices into a blended approach that fits my lifestyle. Am curious your take on something... Ayurveda (at least what I hear and read) seems to frown upon smoothies - lowers agni, hard on digestion etc. What's your take? I see you promote smoothies and now that I am feeling healthier I would like to try them out (will pay attention to digestion etc) but i see them as a great opp to get so much nutrient dense food in one meal! What’s your stance on gluten, even if it’s organic non gmo? Same with org non gmo grains? Non gluten org Oats? I'm a vata pitta so even though i strive for lower carb/sugar, i have some carb at least with lunch and often also with dinner. Finally any Cookware recommendations, i see so many people mention ceramic? Is this type of investment 'worth it'? Trying to balance prioritizing health against managing the budget of course! Many many thanks if you made it this far - i'm busy catching up on the hundreds of episodes of yours I haven't listened to, digging into your wonder fb community, and starting the reading challenge! Bless you! Nina
Jessica: Hello wonderful Doctor Cabral. My mom is about to turn 60, and has been battling sinus infections since I can remember, every winter and spring in particular. A lot of the time she takes antibioitics to help, and they do. (though I keep telling her bad in the long run) She has seasonal allergies and teaches elementary students in a room that is not well ventilated. Lately she has been sick for weeks, out of school with an upper respiratory infection, with wheezing, a heavy chest, and cough when breathing. She is taking inhalers, Albuterol (I think a steroid) (so bad right?!) which also seem to temporarily help. Can you explain why these inhalers mask the issue. What can she do to help this naturally and stop having so many sinus and chest infections? She is ready to get control of her health and get to the bottom of this vs masking the issue w drugs. Thank you!!!
Sydney: Hello!! I have a question regarding the parasite protocol. In the information description it says that following one parasite protocol wasn’t enough to rid the body fully. Was this referring to this cleanse as well? Should I order two of them or is this cleanse long enough to ensure it rids the body of parasites?? Thanks so much :)
Aubrey: I have been sick for months it feels like. I have recently gone through a very stressful situation in my personal life and I am wondering if this could trigger bad health and a poor immune system? Since Christmas I have had influenza twice, 2 different stands. A couple week after that I was hit with strep along with an ear infections and then I was hit with a nasty stomach bug that put me out for a couple days. I am now dealing with what feels like a sinus infections. I typically eat a plant based diet, and I am very active. Although being sick has made that harder, but I have two little ones who are 4 years old and 2 years old who depend on me. So I don’t have much of a choice than to push through things! I can feel my body breaking down on me and I am searching for any support to boost my immune system, as well as to help aid in this stressful life situation I am currently experiencing. I am wondering if your Candida protacal would be a good first step to helping my body or if you have any other suggestions. I am open to about anything that is out thereright now! I love your podcast and what you are doing to help bless so many lives! Thank you for all you do!
Anissa: I need to figure out what is going on with my body. I've had my second outbreak of shingles on my face since January. I just drank the mixture of ACV recommended and my stomach is upset. Is there a lesser strength I can take and still be results? Many thanks. Anissa
Holly: Hi Doctor Cabral, I just found your site and podcast and couple weeks ago and can’t believe how awesome you are and all the interesting information you provide. I am 25 and struggle with acne and pitted rolling acne scars. I am struggling with the scars and how to get rid of them and was wondering if you can help. Much thanks.
