HouseCall: Hyperhidrosis, Waldenstrom’s, Firefighter Detox, Nausea, Reynaud’s, Cancer Testing, Irritated Eyes, Flex Spending Health Insurance
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!
Anonymous: Hello, I’m 30 years old living in Australia. I’m working on parasites and candida overgrowth, and acne which is going well. I also have hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) – hands, feet and underarms. I sweat any type of weather, more when I’m nervous which is normal I suppose. If I have a few alcoholic drinks it seems to stop. Is this because alcohol is a depressant? i’m wondering if there are any labs that would be needed to work out the cause of this. Is my sympathetic nervous system overactive? Are there any other treatments I can do other than clinical antiperspirants, botox or surgery. Thank you
Rachel: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast and hope to soon become a student of the IHP courses. I have so many questions I’d love to ask but shall keep it to the most important one for today. My mum has Waldenstrom’s. She is 71 years old and was disgnosed 8 years ago. She has her blood tested every 6 months which her oncologist checks and is currently on ‘watch and wait’ which basically means nothing is being done about treating her until it gets worse… and when it does (which we’ve been told is inevitable because Waldenstrom’s is considered to be an incurable cancer of the blood) then she will be treated with medications and various other treatments which I don’t know much about but it sounds like there is often a fast deterioration from this point. I would like to help her now, before she gets to a point where these medications and approaches are the only option. I’m also frustrated that she has suffered from so many other health issues over the years and is constantly seeing other specialists and undergiing treatments for these but that no-one is willing to look at her body as one whole interelated system. I’m not sure how to best help her. She eats healthily and exercises regularly, doesn’t smoke and rarely drinks and she believes she’s doing everything she can to be healthy but I feel like there must be more we can do now to help her prolong the negarive effects of the cancer kicking in. And I also wonder if it’s possible to reverse the diagnosis completely with the right actions. Do you have any advice for us in regards to all of this? Thanks in advance for your answer and for all of the work you do and your amazing podcasts!! Warmly, Rachel
Richard: Hello Dr. Cabral. My name is Rich. I work as a firefighter in Salt Lake City, Utah. I have been listening to your podcasts and love the information you are sharing. I also love that your goal is to help people achieve true health and wellness. I am very interested in taking your course to become an Integrative Health Practitioner. Where I would like to start using the information is within the fire department I work for. It is a large department with over 500 total employees. Firefighters are not typically that healthy, and have a long list of varying health problems which most treat with pharmaceuticals. I 100% believe that what you teach and practice is a better way to achieve health and not just mask the underlying problem. I am planning to approach my department admin to request they pay to send me through your courses so I can bring the information back to help our employees regain true health in both mind and body. We have annual physical exams with labs taken and I would like to see if we can include the labs you recommend in the future and I would like to learn how to read those labs and then move forward with suggestions to help people correct any abnormalities. Could you offer any recommendations or support as I move forward in this journey to make a healthier fire department? Thanks!
Robin: Hello Dr. Cabral, My son has had ongoing bouts of nausea for the last 3 to 4 years. At this point he is coming up on the current bout lasting for nearly a year. We have run the gamut of testing over the years including allergies, ENT, hormonal, heart, mental/abdominal migraines, gastric emptying etc and there isn’t really anything that is pointing us in the right direction. I have a friend, Ty Collins, who pointed me in your direction and recommended your Organic Acids Test lab as a possibility to help us figure out what is going on. We have done a lot of other testing as I mentioned above and are still unable to determine the cause of the issue. I was curious if there was any possibility of billing insurance for the testing. We have blue cross from CA. We are already well on our way to hitting our deductible for this year for testing for him and while I want to run this test, the cost is pretty high for us. Please let me know. Thank you, Robin
Jody: Good morning, I just had a question about lab testing. My 15 year old daughter has symptoms consistent with Reynaud’s. I understand that if we can figure out the root cause, we can likely get this to go away. Would the Omega -3 test be the best place to start with that?
Victoria: Hello, I purchased the daily support in powered form. However I’m finding it hard to drink 2 smoothies a day. Is there anyway I can send back the powders and get it in pill form? Also does the daily support have everything I need it it as far as vit and minerals or does the daily multivitamin have other things I also need?
Penny: Wondering what your thoughts are about blood testing for cancers.
Lauren: IHP family.. please help! I’m getting more and more frustrated and don’t know what to do. I don’t want to go to my doctor because as we all know they will prescribe medicine where the goal is to get to the root cause. It is my EYES… and started almost 2 weeks ago. Woke up and one was very red and irritated- I had this before (about 18 months ago) they feel heavy and watery and look droopy. This is by far much worse than last time and just doesn’t seem to want to clear up. I have some better days but then wake up wanting to scratch my eyes out. I’ve tried various drops from the pharmacy- for allergies, dry eyes etc. I’ve bought new pillows and tries to eliminate some foods (I assumed at first I was taking too much greens powder – which has quite a lot of the grasses in). They are worst in the morning and seem to clear during the day… then I’m up a lot in the night I wake myself up scratching them. I really don’t know what to do. At the moment I’m on my own version of the Cabral detox as I don’t have access to the supppements um mainly doing two shakes (vegan protein, chia and frozen spinach with greens powder) a vegan lunch and protein dinner – no alcohol, dairy, red meat, gluten or eggs. I seem to have ongoing struggles with my eyes and know it can be linked to low blood sugar where I feel my vision is a little blurry but this is something else. I thought up to now it’s allergic rhinitis as I have been waking up sneezing and also congested and runny nose- I don’t know what to do or where to start to clear it up or find out what it is? Being in South Africa – I don’t have access to equilibrium testing- but there are a few functional doctors – I just need some guidance on a starting point please? My eyes are sore – red, itchy and irritated- mainly my left eye but at night I scratch both. Vision is clear just strained as they hurt. The bottom lids feel tender I think from scratching. There is no discharge – only sometimes just watery. Please help me start somewhere.. it’s now going on for 2 weeks and yes I have some better days but surely I can’t accept this is how it’s going to be? Thank you all in advance…. a range of pics- not sure it does them justice. My left eye dropps when it’s flared and the underneath are also puffy in the mornings. Don’t know what to do. Thank you Stephen and team
Sam: I’m interested in buying the Big 5 test kit. Can you please tell me if I would be able to use my FSA (Flexible Spending Account) from my health insurance to pay for it?
