HouseCall: Corneal Erosions, B12 to Folate Ratio, Detox & Periods, Anti-Aging BioHacking, GMP Certified
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!
Amanda: Hi Dr. Cabral! I love your podcast and appreciate all you do to share your knowledge and the gift of wellness. I have had chronic dry eyes for the last 12 years. Before I realized what was going on I’d wake and have extreme pain and watering in my eyes. Turns out I was having corneal erosions (corneal tears). As per my eye doctor, I quit wearing contact lenses and began using OTC tears as well as an ointment in my eyes at bedtime. I have done this for years. Corneal specialist said my cells were like a bumpy road rather than smooth and would get caught on the eyelids and tear. I have also had the inside of my (upper) eyelids abraded with silver nitrate 3-4 times. I have also been using Restasis for the last few months. Eyes are still dry, I still use ointment at night but I would love to get to the root of the problem and not have this constant worry that I’ll wake up with a painful tear. Thank you in advance!!!
Jan: I notice my DNS shake has 250 mcg of methyl B12 and 400 Mcg of methyl folate. Other supplements I’ve taken have a higher ratio of b12 to folate…like 1000 Mcg b12 to 400 Mcg folate. Can you please explain your reasoning behind the lower b12/folate ratio in the DNS shake? (PS – I would love to hear a podcast just on the DNS shake itself, and how and why Dr. Cabral used specific ingredients and specific amounts when formulating it. It helps me to “visualize” what the shake is doing for my body – seriously! )
Andrea: Hi Dr Cabral. I went off the pill 5 years ago and got regular periods straight away, however, I have been struggling with missing periods the last 2 years getting it around once every 4 months. I have been working with my Naturopath, running tests and have been working to bring my thyroid number down from a 6 to currently a 3 amongst other lifestyle changes. I did get my period back in August on day 3 of my 7 day Cabral detox. Today (Dec) I started another 7 day detox and it is back on day 1! Could the timing be slightly coincidental or are the herbs in the detox tablets helping bring this on? Any insights into how I might achieve these same results when not completing a detox? Many Thanks.
Audrey: Hi Dr. Cabral. I recently listed to a podcast on longevity featuring Dr. David Sinclair, Harvard professor and author of Lifespan. He spoke on Metformin, Resveratrol, and NAD booster how these are essential for longevity. I know you have referenced Resveratrol several times in your podcasts, but I searched and could not locate any specific podcasts. What is your take on each of these and is a Resveratrol supplement something that is safe to take and if so how many mg? Thanks so much for all you do!
Melody: Hi Dr. Cabral! I love your podcast and everything you teach – you’ve been a lifesaver for me and my family. However, my PCP is a skeptic with supplements and puts doubts in my mind all the time. So I wanted to ask you about the Equilibrium Nutrition supplements – when you say they are third party tested, where can we find that information on the website or product description? I see the GMP certification – but from what I’ve read, all supplements need to be GMP certified in order to be FDA approved, is that correct? So by “third party testing” do you mean you use NSF as your third party tester? I’ll feel better being able to explain this to my doc and friends if I know more about this. Thank you for being one of the best humans on the planet – I’m so grateful for you! Melody
