HouseCall: Uncontrollable Ticks, High Cortisol or Hyperthyroidism, Prostaglandins, Corn Sensitivity, Dental Myofunctional Therapy, Healthy Weight Gain
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!
Megan: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you for everything you do, you have helped me immensely! Keep up the good work. My question is about a guy I have recently started dating – he is 26 and seems to have little uncontrollable ticks or Tourette’s like symptoms, is there something You can suggest to help him? His diet is not the best at the moment. I am currently studying your IHP certification and would love to know if this is something I can help people with when I am certified. Thanks again
Christina: Hi, I am a 27 year old women with many symptoms of hyperthyroidism. I have been struggling with changes in my body weight and have recently lost about 8 pounds in a month due to stress. I have had insomnia for the last 4 years and am often extremely tired during the day and feel wired at night. I have a very active metabolism and can have up to 6 bowel movements in a day. The symptoms seem to be much more intense when I am pmsing and ovulating. I have frequent mood swings that can shift dramatically within an hour. I have never been clinically diagnosed but feel pretty confident that I have hyperthyroidism because it also runs in my family and would like to complete a lab test analysis. Which lab test(s) would you recommend? Thank you, Christina
Sharell: Hi doctor, Can you please enlight me/us about the link with prostaglandins and your period.For 5 days AFTER my period I always get diarrheaI have seen this with might have something to do with a chemical called prostaglandins Is there anything I can do ??Back ground. 40 years old, healthy, normal flow period, 5 day period, 20 day cycle for years. No pain, no head aches. Thanks.
Becca: Good Evening! I am interested in a detox for my 5 year old son. He is currently 85lbs and we eat/live a relatively healthy life style. My husband and I are average and athletic and my daughter (age 4) also has a healthy weight! The pediatrician tells me that I should not be concerned with his weight until he is 10 years old, but I am having a hard time with that. He complains of his legs hurting all the time. We recently (past 2 years) discovered from our chiropractor that he has a sensitivity to corn and sugar. When consumed, his leg pain increases and most of all his behavior does a complete 180. He get very angry and irritable and nothing I do can stop it. My chiropractor mentioned that it could have something to do with his weight as well! We cut it out as much as possible but it is in EVERYTHING! A friend of mine suggested the detox and then the gut sealer for him! I am having a difficult time finding the info! Could you, please, point me in the right direction so that I can get my baby healthy and happy?Thanks so much, Becca
Hunter: Hey Dr. Cabral, Love your work and how you are providing valuable information on a daily basis. I work in the dental field and I enjoy applying your podcasts to my field. One of the latest trends in dentistry is myofunctional therapy, which includes correcting the air pathway by training the muscles in the mouth and face. After hearing a myofuntional speaker give a presentation last week, practicing doctors claim that such therapy aids in ADHD / behavioral treatment, posture correction, sleep apnea, longevity and much more. I would encourage you and your audience to take a look at the research in order to develop your own opinion on interdisciplinary dentistry. My question to you would be how has dentistry / orthodontics fit into your wellness view for young children and adults? This myofunctional discipline is focused on healthy occlusal forces in the mouth and improved airway to aid in proper sleep.
James: Hi Dr Cabral. I am definitely a vata/ectomorph body type, have been all my life. 6’ 3, 165lbs, skinny ankles, wrists, can eat whatever I want without gaining weight etc. I have decided I want to gain some weight – mainly muscle. I have the training and nutrition plan to do this, but this means I will be overeating somewhere between 3000-5000 calories a day, most likely eating more protein than I need and overall not living in balance, unfortunately for a HARD gainer this is what I need to achieve my goal. I know you will probably advise against this for overall health but I am at a point where I feel this is what I need at this time, I am just looking for some tips about what I can do to maintain my health (particularly gut health), while still eating very high calories/working out hard. Should I use enzymes to help with digestion? Use the DNS powder to make sure I’m getting enough fruit/veg? Meditate to help with the stress my body will be under? I have already been through your parasite and CBO protocol and would hate to wreck my gut again in pursuit of this goal. Any tips would be massively appreciated, thanks for your help doc – James
