HouseCall: PreNatal Vitamins, Seed Cycling, BP Up, Sleep Stimulator, Split Training, Extreme Fatigue, Bowel Movement Dysfunction
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:
Taylor: How do I find out more information about the “Wellness Coaching” Dr. Cabral said he is releasing this Fall? I’m interested in that course, where he teaches you how to heal others. I can’t find it on the website though.
Stephanie: I was wondering if there is any way to buy the prenatal vitamins with DHA by itself and not with the iron supplements?
Judy: Hi Dr. Cabral! I enjoy listening to your podcasts. Can you share your thoughts on seed cycling to improve hormones? Does it work? If so, can you explain the best approach?
Keven: In November of 2016 I weighed 317 pounds, and was on the standard fat person prescription protocol. In February 2017, I received Type 2 Diabetes news. My dentist suggested plant food diet. I began eating 90% of my diet at Laney&Lu’s in Exeter NH–plug them as often as I can. Fast forward to March 2018. I was down to 211. Diet only. Began working out twice a week, walking 8 miles twice a week, and went off the tracks. I had great success with the food, but I did experience constipation and bloating very often. I am 62, and close to retirement. Job stress is up, as is BP. Back on BP meds only. Somewhere around May I felt the self sabotage setting in. Just read RBE–my dentist suggested–and bells and whistles are going off. Am I too old for your program.
Dustin: As an elementary school teacher, I experience a lot of stress and anxiety that has affected my ability to sleep through the night (latency is not an issue). In order to address this, I have started to use a Fisher Wallace Stimulator, which is a form of cranial electrotherapy stimulation, for 20 minutes in the evening. If I eat well (my nutrition is great), and address toxicities and deficiencies, do you see this as a helpful/positive health practice? Interested in your perspective on the Fisher Wallace Stimulator in general. Thank you!
Ellie: Hi, I’d love to hear your opinion on a training split involving power/explosive workouts! I want to train for power and explosiveness more. I currently have a deadlift day and a squat day (both are full-body workouts) and another day that is for MFT training (a third full-body workout focused on conditioning). Aside from those 3 days, I have the 4th day when I do hill sprints with a 1:3 work/rest ratio. Could I train for power on hill sprint day, and if so, should I do the hill sprints first or the power workout first? By power workout, I mean doing exercises such as power cleans while sticking to a 1:3 work-rest ratio to allow for quality/explosive reps. I am a personal trainer who loves daily movement and your podcasts are such an inspiration to me! I am amazed at your knowledge and your approach to helping others. Thanks so much for caring about the world and everyone in it.
Natalie: Hi! I have heard Dr. Cabral mention a certification class he’s teaching multiple times. I was wondering how I can get some more information on it! Thank you! Natalie
Bell: My dearest friend is experiencing extreme fatigue more in the morning but 3/7 days of the week he says the extreme fatigue lasts all day not even naps will help. He cut out when carbs when he was trying to lose weight 3 years ago, now when has carbs he feels his glucose spike 15-20, 30 minutes after he eats then CRASHES. He exercises regularly (swim, yoga, boxing, biking, lifting) and moves his body every day. He sleeps 7 hrs /night which he says his sleep quality isn’t great. He has tried to manipulate his diet every few weeks, especially his breakfast (plain oats, cooked kale and broccoli, eggs, bullet coffee, fasting, meat) Smoothies in the morning he will feel exhausted like he needs to go to sleep right away stating the protein breaks down too quickly (he’s 28, 140lbs, <8% body fat, 5’6’’) He says if he drives after lunch he will nod off. His sensitivity is increasing, he was not like this 5 years ago. He says he thinks it might be from coffee so his next adjustment will be the elimination of caffeine. (cortisol connection?) “Sometimes not even coffee will wake me up” Where should we start? Do you think adding something like Berberine? Adrenal test? He’s tried thyroid support and a glucose stabilizer. I’m rocking out the CBO protocol! Aloha and mahalo from O’ahu!
Shari: I ordered the Food Sensitivity Test in early spring. I purchased two tests and gave one to my sister. I took the test and mailed it on July 1 from Port Falls Idaho Fed Ex drop spot. I have not heard anything regarding the test results. I am concerned the test never reached you. Naturally, I cannot find the shipping label. What should I do? thank you.
Tammy: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have a bit of a TMI question: I have regular bowel movements – one “big” normal one in the morning, and one or two “smaller” and more runny ones during the day. However, I have a feeling that my bowels are never fully empty. I also need to pass the wind very often, and sometimes a little bit of fecal matter comes out. Do you think this is a pelvic floor dysfunction or something that has to do with my gut flora? Thanks so much for your help!
