Today’s Cabral Concept is here!

HouseCall: CBC Bloodwork, Alpha Galactose Reaction, Stomach Cramping, GERD Absorption Issues, Enzyme Timing, Winter Smoothies, Low Gastrin Levels, Snack Before Cardio?

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!

Carolyn: I have two questions. First, what test do you suggest to evaluate cell function (at the cellular level)? And secondly, what protocol do you suggest for an otherwise healthy 23 year old male bitten by the lone star tick and now ‘allergic’ to all hooved animal products due to alpha galactose reaction. Thank you very much for your dedication to everyone’s wellness. We listeners are all grateful.

Gabe: Hi Dr. Cabral, for the past couple of weeks I’ve been having major midday stomaching cramping. I ran a hair tissue test and found out I was deficient in pepsin and Enterokinase. I was wondering if you think that could be the cause of my discomfort and if you had any suggestions to balance the issue.

Jennifer: Hi, eating disorder for 15 years, bulimia specifically, working on recovery last couple years. Question is regarding GERD because of the stomach acid from throwing up. I have to take medicine everyday to control it, I’m concerned about it messing up my ability to absorb vitamins/minerals. I’ve tried not taking it for a couple days, and it’s too painful. Thoughts?

Tim: How long do digestive enzymes last? The bottle says to take them 15 minutes before, but what if a meal lasts longer than the duration of its effects in the stomach? Should I take 1 mid-meal as well?

Kim: I started following Dr. Cabrals protocol in late summer. I am not one to mind having a fruit smoothie for breakfast w/ frozen fruits and vegetable. However, now /w the changing of the seasons; my body just does not want a cold smoothie for breakfast! It craves hot things like oatmeal, rice porridge, squashes, potatoes, etc. Do you have any options for breakfast or how to make the DNS into something more geared towards the changing of the seasons? Right now, I am having to just mix mine in a shaker bottle and sip it throughout the day or down it as a mid afternoon snack.

Melissa: Hi Dr Cabral, I am about to start your CBO protocol to work on my SIBO. My specialist has tested me on the cause of my SIBO and as a result I have discovered I have gastroparesis and low gastrin levels. My concern is after I complete the protocol my SIBO could come back! I was unable to get any support from my specialist about what to do to remain SIBO free. They have only suggested to take a drug (for life) to pump my stomach faster and I was told ‘there is nothing you can do for gastrin’. I have discovered your treatments and advice and am hopeful you would have some natural advice to help stay SIBO free. Thank you advance for any assistance you can give!Melissa

Marie: Hi Doc! I have some specific questions re fasted weight training. On weekends I have gotten into the habit of training in the morning and am quite enjoying fasted workouts. My goals are fat loss esp around the midsection (would not classify myself as generally overweight however) and muscle gain in the lower body (glutes, legs). My fasted weekend training consists of weightlifting for the lower body followed by 20 min of light cardio. I am not hungry during these workouts but would like your feedback on whether I am sabotaging my results this way. Should I eat before training? Should I have a quick snack before the cardio (or not do the cardio at all that day?) Or is it fine to just eat after? Advice much appreciated as always xx
