Stephen Cabral Anti Aging Hacks

 

We discuss a Holistic Approach to the following items:

1. How to fix your Digestion and Gut Health

2. How to Stop Energy Leaks in your body

3. How to Stop Hair Loss and Get Better Hair 

Here are the show notes:

Why is Digestion and Gut Health so Important 4:20

- Dr. Cabral thinks this is the most important issue to correct

- 90% of all autoimmune issues and chronic disease goes back to the guy. For eg. Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hashimotos, Migraines

- Our intestines are 26 feet long but are permeable to allow individual amino acids, fatty acids, and glucose molecules

- Sometimes gaps open up more because of alcohol, birth control, advil, ibuprofen, antibiotics, fried food, stress, chlorine, fluoride, and we start leaking more proteins into the bloodstream

- This aggravates immune system as it senses foreign bodies, this is what causes the immune system to go out of control

- This could be because of candida overgrowth, SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth), H Pilori which causes bloating or acid reflux, or parasites

- Must fix gut first to absorb the good foods and supplements people invest in, which get absorbed through the intestines and processed by the liver

- Functional medicine detox is mainly giving your liver more support

- Phase I liver detox: vitamins and minerals

- Phase II liver detox: Sulphur based amino acids, better in concentrated form

- Quite easy to fix gut health

How can you Fix Gut Issues 7:40

- First thing is to find an elimination diet - to eliminate the most inflammatory or immune aggravating foods: Gluten, Dairy, Egg Whites for 3-4 weeks

- Some people cannot digest vegetables, other people may not be able to digest nuts

- If you have bloating, gas, acid reflux, loose stool, then you can begin candida and bacterial gut protocol, or you can lab test - which involves urine test (candida metabolism vitamins test) and stool test which looks at parasites H Pilori and bacterial overgrowth

- One of these tests will figure out what you have, and you can use pharmaceutical ways or natural ways to clean it out

How to Create More Energy 10:40

- Two ways to look at it. One way is to boost energy, and second is to find the energy leaks in the body

- First item to check is sleep. Must have 7-9 hours of sleep.

- You should have 12 hours or more in parasympathetic nervous system, and less than 12 in sympathetic nervous system

- Stop working and relax after 12 hours

- Must have time for repair 

- We use up our reserves in our 30's and 40's, and we start to burn through reserves, so we go through B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium faster. So may need smaller doses of supplementation

- We can improve mitochondria biogenesis 

How can People Stop Hair Loss and get Better Hair 15:40

- Dr. Cabral did 25 minute show on hair loss

- We know why people lose hair

- In Ayurvedic medicine, the pitta or mesomorphic body loses their hair

- Those folks have higher Testosterone to Dihydrotestosterone conversion

- Some blockers are Saw Palmetto, Pygeum, Green Tea, EGCG

- Other reasons are Low Iron, Low B vitamins especially B12

- People shift into more Telogen phase

- Women with low thyroid lose hair on head, and a third of eyebrows

- PCOS also causes hair loss in women (higher levels of Testosterone, and insulin resistance)

- Vitamin D deficiency

- Could also be Toxins such as heavy metals

- Start with vitamin C, B, Zinc, and stress, thyroid
