HouseCall: Supplements Without Dieting, Teenager Protein Limit, “Healthy” Processed Meats, Bed-Ridden, CBO on Birth Control, 2nd Opinion on Sinuses

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: Hi, I was wondering whether there is any point in purchasing the DCD or candida & bacteria overgrowth protocol if you are not willing to follow the nutritional guidelines? I have been following a clean diet according to many of your recommendations since doing the DCD earlier this year. Unfortunately this has now slowly spiraled me back into former patterns of disordered eating. I previously had a clinically diagnosed eating disorder which I recovered from, but whenever I try to follow any sort of nutritional guidelines I end up back in that very negative place, even if my intentions were wellness based. I have therefore decided that this is not the path for me. I still want to do what I can for my health and therefore wonder if there are health benefits when only taking the supplements of the above protocols or whether it is not really worth the financial investment when not following the diet as well? Many thanks for all of the work that you do!!

Krista: Hi Dr. Cabral, Quick question for you : how much protein do you recommend pre-teen and teenage boys get on a daily basis? Specifically I’m trying to figure out for my 11 & 14 year old boys (who are on the leaner end weighing 55 and 75 pounds respectively). Just wanting to make sure they are getting enough but also not too much…! Thanks so much for all you do!

Larissa:Hi Dr. Cabral! What are your personal thoughts on the “healthier” alternatives to the standard “processed meats?” I know you’ve mentioned that the Mayo clinic found that Processed meats are definitely carcinogenic. What about Sausages and Hot Dogs made from organic / pasture-raised animal meat without the added Sodium Nitrate and those brands that say “no added sugar?” Thank you for all you do! 🙂

Ari:hi I have depression and anxiety & am 21 years old. I am super low mood ( have been since I was 5 years old) and cannot get out of bed without adderal etc. I have been getting recurring sinus infections for at least the past 10 years, took birth control for 2 years, and have taken anti-biotics more times than I can count. I am going to do a DCD, and CBO protocol. Should i be doing anything else on the hormone front regarding the past birth control use?

Nora:Hi, I get really bad periods and have depression & anxiety. Birth control pills are the only thing that have sucessfully gotten my period under control. I really want to take care of my gut as well as improve my liver function. Can I do the CBO protocol while on hormonal birth control pills? If I am taking hormonal birth control, how can I seal my leaky gut?

Beth: Hello. I am an avid listener to your podcast and have been truly inspired by your knowledge. Thank you so much for all you give. I understand that this may not be answered for up to 12 weeks but I am desperate for an answer to some of my husband’s health problems. I think I know that you’re going to tell us to get him do all the tests, but being in England and having everything shipped over through you guys will cost. I will try to find a functional doctor near me over here but I don’t feel like I can trust anyone but you! My other intuition tells me that he needs to see an Ayurveda Dr but Ayurveda is so unknown over here that it will be really difficult to find someone to help him. His problems are as follows: cold-induced urticaria, blocked sinuses; resulting in terrible headaches occasionally, blocked Eustachian tubes so he can hear constant clicking in his ears and now he has lost his sense of taste which came about after a recent tummy bug. We cut out meat and dairy (95%) from our diet last September and he has been to see a kinesiologist and so now he was told that his body doesn’t like, pork, dairy, alcohol, sugar, chocolate, caffeine, prawns so he has cut out all of those. He used to drink a medium amount (probably about 2-3 beers and 2 glasses of red wine) every night and has cut back to almost zero since Christmas. It seems to have made no difference. On the odd occasion he has had a few beers (like twice since Christmas) he has ended up with such a bad headache the next day, accross the forehead, we presume linked to sinuses. He was told by his kinesiologist that all his organs are fine, liver is working well (which I was surprised about considering the amount he has drunk over the years!), strong digestion, no candida/sibo etc. He hasn’t been to a regular Dr for about a year now because they told him it would ‘probably just clear up’. Anitbiotics didn’t work for him. I am worried that his sinusitis is never going to clear up (he has had it for 3-4 years) and now I am worried his sense of taste won’t come back. Do you think they are blocked permanently (ie the damage has been done)? Lastly, he has taken your Sinus Support (3 per day for 2 months) and it hasn’t done anything (yet?). We have completed Deepak Chopra’s Ayurveda quiz and he is a Pitta (81) Vata (69) Kapha (50). He works really hard manually and usually 6 days per week, I know he needs to rest more …but he is a Pitta!!Thank you in advance for any advice you can offer. I look forward to hearing any response.Kind regards, Beth
