HouseCall: Cracked Heels & Dry Feet, Sun Skin Sensitivity, Type A Depletion, High-Grade HPV Virus, Children Supplement Review, Travel Supplements

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!

Vanessa: Thank you for all of the information you put out, quick and to the point. So my issue is that the palms of my hands and bottom of my feet are severely dry and cracked. It gets to where my heels crack so bad that my heel splits apart and hurts. My finger tips do the same thing. Although my primary says its just dry skin I feel as though there is something deeper, an imbalance. Quick history, I was diagnosed with MS and am on Ocrevus. I take a multi, mag citrate, Omega-3 and EPA, probiotics, gabapentin, I use Great Lakes collagen everyday and drink more coffee than I should. I do wash my hands (regular soap, NOT antibacterial) a lot since I am cooking and cleaning constantly (Stay-at-home mom 🙂 ) and use lotion as often as possible but nothing lasts. I do have a moderate amount of stress with a soldier for a husband (lots of training and deployments). Could the dry and cracked palms and heels be connected with an imbalance? If so, what should I do and what testing category would this fall under on your site? Thanks so much and keep serving those in need of healing!

Emily: Hi Dr. Cabral, First, I just want to say thank you! I love listening to your podcast and appreciate all of the knowledge you share. I’m curious what your thoughts are on heat/sun rash and sun sensitivity. I’m 32, Caucasian, female and have always been okay in the sun up until about 5 years ago. Now when I am in the sun, I tend to develop a rash on my hands and feet. My face also becomes extremely sensitive. When exposed to the sun I tend to breakout and will develop multiple (12-15) tiny pustule pimples all over my chin and cheeks and they feel very irritated. I do suffer from acne in general, it’s under control for the most part with food and lifestyle changes but the moment my skin sees sun, it flares up and becomes so irritated. This is with clean sunscreen as well. I am pretty fare skinned and I know my Irish grandmother is sensitive to the sun as well, but why now? I never used to have this issue and was always fine with sunscreen. Could it be a detox issue? Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated! Thank you In advance for your help!!!

Brennan: Hi Dr. Cabral- First off thank you so much for all you do and your endless information and education. I am continually impressed by your knowledge and passion for health and living our best lives! I am considering your integrative health practitioner courses to add to my nursing degree. A quick bit of background. I consider myself to be a pretty healthy individual. I am a 34 year old female. I am 5’1 and weigh 103 lbs. I am very active and have been my whole life. I am a former collegiate soccer player and since college I have gotten into crossfit, I love to push myself and it hasnt been until about a year ago when I started to have strange symptoms that I realized I needed to take a step back and incorporate more balance into my life… i’ve since added yoga weekly, the sauna 4-6 days a week, treadmill workouts, hitt classes, meditation, and have even done some acupuncture.nI have never considered myself an anxious person and have always been a great sleeper until the last 6 months. I have been waking up in the middle of the night most nights and it takes me at least an hour or 2 to get back to sleep. For the last 3 months I have had a strange feeling in my head, almost a light headed feeling, hard to focus, memory lapsing, and pretty bad fatigue. I haven’t had 1 day in 3 months that I have been free of these symptoms. I just completed your 21 day detox and although I feel better my symptoms are still present. just maybe not as extreme. I am so confused as to what to do next… Ive had lots of thoughts. Maybe its lack of sound sleep. Maybe it has something to do with mold (although I dont know where I would have been exposed), maybe bacterial and yeast overgrowth in the gut, maybe hormonal… the list goes on 🙂 I would love any and all suggestions you have for me! Thank you so much.Brennan

Erin: Hi, has Dr Cabral ever successfully treated anyone with high grade HPV Virus? Thankyou

Sarah: What are your thoughts on Juice Plus vitamins and supplements for kids? My kids won’t drink smoothies at 2, but will chew the gummy vitamins from Juice Plus. I feel like it’s a good choice until I can get them to drink a smoothie and add your supplements appropriate for their age. Would love to know your thoughts. Thank you for all you do!

Erica: My husband and I will be traveling in Argentina and Brazil at the end of the year. My question is twofold: What can we do in the days and weeks leading up to the trip to travel and arrive there in the best health possible? What are some supplements, vitamins, etc that would be most essential to bring to keep ourselves healthy while traveling for 6 weeks? (Space is an issue with packing) Thank you so much for sharing so much helpful information.
