HouseCall: Canola Oil & Margarine, Cracking Joints, Gelatin in Supplements, Turmeric vs. Curcumin, Infrared Sauna Blanket, Tuberculosis, Starchy Dinner
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!
Haven: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’ve been a long time listener and have successfully shared much of what you have taught me to many of my friends and family. Last year, my 50 year old mom, who has struggled with her weight for most of her adult life, became a listener as well. She successfully completed the CBO protocol and did a handful of 14-day Doctor Cabral Detoxes. She could feel that it was helping, but didn’t manage to lose more than 5lbs. This year, she is now on a weight loss program, called Optivia, where you eat 5 “fuelings” a day and one “lean and green” meal a day. I am very proud of her accomplishments, but worry about the long term health effects. The diet’s “fuelings” are all highly processed foods and the nutritional label lists many unidentifiable chemicals. Plus many of the “lean and green” recipes include processed meats, dairy and gluten and classify canola oil and margarine as “healthy fats”. I’m having a hard time finding the words to explain to her the damage she could potentially be causing her body, and wondered if you had any words of wisdom I could borrow? Many thanks!
Joanna: Hi Dr Cabral My question is i tend to get a cracking noise likea bubbly noise in between my joints mainly knees when i exercise? Do you know what may cause this?Is it a matter of building my strength and training up. I have only started training up again in the last month, prior to that i had a few months off and was just walking mainly. I take your dns and collagen everyday Kind regards Joanna 🙂
Les: Hi Dr. Stephan Cabral,I had a question about the type of gelatin you use in your products. Due to my religion, I do not consume pork and I noticed that your omega 3 contains gelatin. Thank you!
Ryan: What are your thoughts on the benefits of turmeric vs. curcumin supplementation? I’ve read curcumin has troubles with bio-availability and that combining with black pepper, and/or certain water soluble or fat soluble forms, plus antioxidants can help… but the jury still seems to be out. How much have you experimented with different forms clinically and what’s your experience? Do different forms work better for different things? Particularly interested in blood sugar benefits. Any new research you’re aware of regarding turmeric/curcumin? Cheers.
Grace: Hi Dr.Cabral, I have a question for you about a product I am considering buying. I asked this question in the support group page, and others also were interested in hearing your opinion. You have spoken about the benefits of infrared saunas before, but I am curious if you have seen or heard about the infrared sauna ‘blankets’? I am interested because they are much more cost effective and more portable than traditional saunas. The brand I am personally looking into is called Higher Dose. Do you know if these sauna blankets produce the same level of benefits to regular infrared saunas?On a similar note, I am a yoga teacher where I both practice and teach in a heated room, and I sweat A LOT. I am curious if this also produces the same benefit as an infared sauna session? Is it worth using an infared sauna if I regularly sweat in a heated room? Thanks in advance for your insight, and thank you for everything you do. Your work has significantly impacted my life and health!
DB: What are the natural remedies for turberculosis. Can you cure it without the use of powerful medications.
Dar: Lately I have been loving this black bean, yam, and spinach wrap for dinner with a little garlic caesar dressing from costco, however my wife mentioned that is probably too heavy on the starch, what do you think and what would you use instead of the beans if that’s the case? How does too much starch affect digestion I have heard it is not good.
