Summary

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! Annie: Hi Dr. Cabral! Huge thanks for all you do and all the free help/advice you offer. I have been binge listening to your podcast over the past couple of weeks. I have really enjoyed how you integrate Ayurveda into your practice. I recently ordered my first 14-day detox and anticipate awesome results! My question is: could you talk about weight gain for Vata/pitta body types? I’m a Vata-Pitta (very thin wrists and ankles, a little broader shoulders, dry skin/hair, bloating and constipation) and have carried extra fat on my belly since around age 8 (I’m 24 now). It looks strange on my body as I am otherwise quite bony and lean. I eat clean and exercise regularly. Could this be excess Vata? I feel it’s not Kapha as it does not change with my diet or exercise and is in such a specific area. Would really appreciate any suggestions as it’s very frustrating and makes me feel insecure - I mean who doesn’t want a flat stomach? Thanks in advance! Elizabeth: Hi Dr Cabral. I love your show and all the valuable information you provide! My question is about afternoon snacking... I find that I eat healthy, whole nutritious foods for the beginning part of my day, but when 3pm rolls around I am ravenous and reach for anything I can get my hands on. It feels like my brain shuts off it’s wellness meter and I get caught up in the moment. I wouldn’t say it’s a binge because it’s not a lot of food... but it definitely feels like a lack of control. Why does this happen? Is there something I should be doing earlier in the day to prevent this? Thanks! Gabriella: Hi Dr. Cabral, First off, thank you for sharing your work and for sharing it with us. I have a question regarding what I was told was pain that started from a virus. The pain in my chest on the left side by my heart. My GP felt the area and told me it was text book costochondritis and that the virus that’s caused it was probably long gone but that the inflammation was still around. He told me to take three Advil a day until the pain went away. I usually refrain from taking Advil especially that much. I was wondering if you had another solution. Thank you, GP Donna: This is somewhat urgent. I’ve been a smoker for over 30 years struggling to completely quit. I’m getting ready to take advantage of your CBD Oil offer for March. Will this help me and do you have a protocol or suggestions for quitting smoking? I have been using the DNS for seven months, completed a 7 day detox, and ready to do a 21 day detox. I eat healthy, exercise and in good health except slightly elevated cholesterol. I will eventually do some testing but need to end this habit now. I prefer this question not be on a podcast or could this be addressed in a most general way as to addiction. If you could help me through a personal email I would greatly appreciate it. Otherwise I would like to be anonymous. Thank you so much, Joel: Dr Cabral, my four year old has been complaining of stomach pain just left of his belly button for about 3 months. He originally had a “stomach bug” in November for a few days in which he vomited and wasn’t feeling well. Afterwards he’s continued to complain on average 3 times a day of just general stomach pain. In January he had an incident where he was writhing in pain. We took him to the ER by the time we arrived he said he felt fine. We eat overall pretty healthy Paleo style diet with organic foods overall. I can’t tell if it’s stress or if he’s really got something going on there. I’ve noticed his anxiety increase (gut/brain Or perhaps craving attention cuz we have a 7 month old that takes a lot of our attention noe too). He poops once a day and they are normal. His appetite is normal as well. Would you recommend rotation diet? Could you give a 4 year old CBD? Would you still run an organic ac
