HouseCall: Radio-Active Iodine, Autism Gut Health Connection, Show Notes Complaint, Citric Acid, Cystic Fibrosis, Foods When Feeling Sick, Abdominal Discomfort With Eating
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!
Ryan: What’s up Dr. Cabral, I really think what you are sharing with the world is great. I have been listening to so many of your podcasts recently, and am so grateful I found them. I will just ask my question outright. Are there, or could there potentially be options for patients who received Radio-Active Iodine therapy to reverse the damage done to the thyroid? Somewhat similar to you, by the time I was in my late teens I was completely burning out and after a long bout of Mono at 18 I was later diagnosed with Graves Disease (not until I was 23, but I am certain this was the case after I was diagnosed with EBV). Anyhow I had done so much guess work and boughten so many supplements to help my heath all through my late teens and early twenties. Unfortunately I did not understand what it meant to truly live a healthy holistic lifestyle till about the age 25 to 26 right after I got the radiation done. Ever since I have been fully entrenched in functional medicine/holistic learning, but also struggling with unlearning all the harmful lifestyle choices that lead to me developing Graves. I am awaiting my Hair and mineral test results, and will be doing some of the other labs in the upcoming month or so, but am waiting to see if any promotions are run in a few weeks for the holidays. Are there supplements I can take for possible scarring and tissue damage done? Could it make any sense to see stem cell availability to rejuvenate the gland? I am on 1 grain of Nature Throid but my Naturopath seems to think it is fine to only test my total T4 and T3, which are low bottom range. My hands are still cold, I have low energy, and I do not feel adequate. I have always done my own testing even before having this Naturopath, because no doctors would test what I found to be beneficial through my own research. Conventional Medicine had me on Levothyroxine early on which was not helpful, and through my own testing I found my RT3 to always be extremely elevated. My Naturopath seems to think that this is because my albumin is elevated, with low globulin, and elevated creatinine. Basically having left kidney atrophy she thinks I just have to manage it through lifestyle forever, and deal with the problem. It is frustrating because I have order the 4 Iron labs, ZRT 4 point saliva testing, both Vitamin D tests, B12, and many other beneficial labs, yet she only looks at lab ranges and no optimality. I have been reading non stop any and all book recommendations I get from people like you or Paul Chek for instance. I am currently reading Dr. Jensons guide to Better Bowel Care. And it is awesome information, I cannot wait to run my organic acids test. I am just sick of every doctor I have not being open or willing to constant learning themselves. Or telling me they wont run this or that, or that you need to come in and pay $100 to get your refill of Nature throid and talk about how its going. Finding the ability to test these root causal problems through functional medicine lab testing will I believe change my life. I think about my health non stop, and have since I was young. Cannot wait to find more out about my health, and I am thankful for all that I have been forced to learn over the years, as I believe it will shape my future. I am looking forward to eventually becoming an IHP! Thanks!
Kerry: Hi Dr Cabral, Thanks for answering my question today. I have learnt so much from your podcast- thank you for your commitment with sharing your knowledge. I have recently completed your IHP lvl 1 & 2 – the course was amazing! I’m using the information to heal those in my community and also my family with amazing results.I have a child on the Autism spectrum we have done so much work with her over the past 3 years to heal her sensitive system and can proudly say she’s developing along side her peers and thriving in life- but still has some healing to do. We have done your parasite protocol which was amazing and saw one of her last autisms – persistent stimming, disappear, almost over night. We then started your Children’s CBO protocol and almost from the beginning saw massive flare ups of autistic behaviours such as OCD, fears, stimming, rigidity, poor communication, toe walking and anxiety – to the level they were 12 months ago, prior to a massive amount of healing. While I know that this type of flair up can happen when healing, and I’m ok with it and will soldier on with the protocol, I’d really like to know why this happens. I love to hear what you have to say on this matter as I plan on specialising in this area of health – helping families and children with Autism. I feel having a justification for the flairs will help parents persist with healing protocols and understanding that this is “normal”. Regression can be really difficult for a parent to deal with especially when they have had some relief of symptoms – I have spent the day trolling the internet for some answers but have come up with nothing so I hope you might be able to shed some light on this. Many many thanks!
Alan: Why do you call the Show Notes and Resources section – “Show notes” as there are none?
Joanna: Hi Dr. Cabral what I am concerned about is Daily Fruit & Vegetable Blend contains a lot of berries and citric acid – Is this ok?
DB: Can you recommend tips or diet and lifestyle for a teenager dealing with cystic fibrosis.
Van City: When feeling sick on occasion what do you recommend eating I don’t eat as much wheat anymore but my go-to is toast?
Joanna: Hi dr cabral I have been having this ongoing upper left abdominal discomfort for almost 1 year now. Where the stomach is and now radiates to the upper left-back. I have had multiple tests, endoscopy was all clear, abdominal ultrasound did not show any gallstones, blood test early this year to check pancreatic enzymes was normal, i take hcl and enzymes with every meal. It gets worse after a meal, sometimes when stress or after exercise but mainly after meals. I just can’t pin point what it is. Iv tried everything. When im relaxed or only eating shakes for eg i dont get any feeling. For eg when i did the 21 day detox the 2 fasting days i had no upper sensation but the day i introduced food it came back and was worse like a stitch in the upper left stomach. Its a tough one do you have any insight if this could possibly be pancreatitis as the pain radiates to the upper left back? How could you naturally treat pancreatitis any thanks, joanna
