HouseCall: SIBO Drugs, Salt Cave, Itching All Over, Metal in Teeth, Chicory Root, Stomach Bugs, Wine Detox, BPH
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:
Rachel: I ordered your organic acids test. A western dr diagnosed me with SIBO without doing any tests and prescribed me xifaxan for 3 months. My question is, if i do the organic acids test now after being on xifaxan for 1 month, will results be a bad reflection ? Do i have to wait to take the organic acids test?
Elaine: Hi, I recently had a Organic Acids Test done and was wondering if I sent you the results could you interpret it for me and what this would cost? Kind Regards, Elaine
Tori: What are the benefits of salt caves? What should you look for when deciding between salt caves or rooms? Is there research that supports halotherapy (dry salt therapy) as a treatment for the conditions/ailments the salt caves claim? E.g., COPD, asthma, allergies, skin conditions like eczema and acne?
Linda: In June I started itching first my head and earlobes it seem to go away and then it started on my hands and feet . The strange thing is that it would be gone for almost sometimes 2 to 3 weeks and then come back . Then I broke out in hives . My doctor suggested Sarna and histamine and Prednisones . The hives would come and go right now they seem to be gone but my hands, feet and head are itching again any suggestions . I must say the sarna has saved my craziness of the itching it does help some what.
Anthony: I’d like to get more information on getting test(s) to discover the root of my health issues. How do I get started
Alex: You were on the Mindpump podcast and great info. I wanted to see if you could send me some additional tips on Psoriasis and the website to remove metal from teeth. Thanks. again, great show.
Elizabeth: Hey Dr Cabral, it doesn’t seem as if you have spoken about chicory root before. I was wondering if it’s a good alternative to those who drink coffee? Given the prebiotic (inulin) factor presumably it may not do well with some people? I know you’ve mentioned inulin before on your show but wondered your thoughts on drinking chicory root? Thanks for all and all the best.
Tiffany: You have said on your podcasts that you don’t have to wait the 6 weeks that your emails are behind to find out which tests you would recommend taking but I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask you the questions?
It is about my daughter. She is 5 years old. We recently moved from US to Costa Rica, it’s been around 6 weeks.
Previously her diet has been great, not a picker eater. Everyone is impressed at how she will eat whole foods, salads and even whole fish (eyeballs and all!) along with Cole’s Portuguese sardines… she loves them. We avoid over gluten-ing ourselves as well as avoid white sugar, and sugar in general (we use stevia). I always buy organic and even soak any nuts and grains that we will be consuming. We don’t have access to the same food here and recently, everytime she eats (very little at that) she claims her belly hurts. She did recently battle with an inner ear infection and I have been excluding eggs and dairy from her diet for the past 2 weeks. She started at a new school and the bathroom is “dirty” and “the door doesn’t close” so she has been struggling with holding “it” until she absolutely can’t anymore and then having an accident. Luckily, her daily poops are around 4pm so we are home for them. My thoughts about what could be wrong are all over the place! Parasites, bladder infection, SIBO?!? We are returning to the states in 2 weeks so I can order a test and send it in but I’m not positive what test I should order. Hopefully this can get answered before our trip back as I don’t think we will be back in the state for almost 1 year. Thank You in advance for your time!
Valerie: Hello Dr. Cabral! First off, thank you for the Rain Barrel Effect. Really enjoyed the book. It was packed full of easy to read information. I’ve been telling everyone I can about it. I’m 57 years old and since my 30’s I’ve not followed a very good diet and drank a lot of wine (1.75L in one week period) and excess coffee (700 mg/day) In March (2018) I went on a Whole Foods, Plant-Based Diet, I gave up drinking, zero coffee and work out, as per your protocol. I suffer from Adrenal Fatigue. I’m working with a FMD and waiting for my results from my Organic Acids Test and a stool test. My Mother had Breast Cancer at 54 (she’s now 91) and my Sister has been recently diagnosed (age 60). My Sister is a heavy drinker and a junk food Vegan (a bag of chips for dinner). I was tested several years ago, for the BRACA1 and tested very low. My question is, with my years of drinking and poor lifestyle, does this increase my chances of developing dis-ease later in my life? Have I done to much damage over the years? Thank you and I always look forward to your Podcasts.
Vivienne: Hi there, My name is Viv, I currently have multiple food sensitivities, which include histamine and salicylates and amines (these are recent in the past year). I’ve done multiple hair tests over the years and hormone blood tests, I’m on DHEA as this hormone is very low after being in birth control for 20 years (and coming off 3 years ago). I don’t metabolise copper well and have low levels of copper/estrogen. I’m struggling mainly with brain fog and fatigue and also generally still unsure of what to eat and when (eating around 25 foods on rotation following the failsafe diet approach). What I want: Someone to help guide me out of a state of intolerance (I’ve been told many times I’m stuck with them but I don’t buy into that) Someone to help guide me on what food to eat and when so that I have energy to get through the day (without resorting to using chocolate and modafinil which is the only way I feel I can function). Someone to help me heal my gut when most of the traditional supplements and healing methods are off limits because I can’t tolerate them. Can you help and how would we get things started? I’ve sent a few messages before but no reply so I’m hoping you get this and can back in contact! Thanks, Viv
John: Dear Dr. Cabral, I’ve been diagnosed with BPH and am getting up 3-4 times a night. I don’t believe I’ve slept more than 4 hours straight in 3 years. I’m 57 years old and the doctors all say it’s a normal part of aging which I wholeheartedly disagree with. My wife and I eat clean, take supplements and workout 4-5 times a week (crossfit) and are in good health. What is your recommendation for shrinking the prostate. There’s got to be something that causes this condition. God Bless
