HouseCall: ACV Reaction, OCD Causes, Thyroid Imbalance, Stickler Syndrome, Tired During Day, Oils in Diet, Shower After Sweating
Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows!
This is where we answer our community’s wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track!
Check out today’s questions:
K: Hi Dr Cabral, I have been taking the apple cider vinegar drink you recommend in the fatlossity program twice a day. I dilute it about 16 oz of water. I have noticed that my gums are little swollen and they bleed when I brush and floss since adding this drink into my daily routine. Do you have any advice on how I can adapt this drink so that it doesn’t cause this reaction?
Helena: Hi Dr. Cabral, in one of the previous shows you mentioned that OCD could be caused by a hormone/chemical imbalance in your body. What are your thoughts on the causes of hypochondria? Do you think that the root cause is also due to chemical imbalances in the body? I’ve been suffering for such a long time and would love to find a way to deal with it once and for all. For me, it’s triggered mostly by reading about it. For example, I had HPV virus, and although it’s been cleared (had it checked twice now), I still think that they might have missed something and when I see an article about someone having it or dying from it, I’m anxious for days and seek reassurance from people around me and Dr. Google (which actually scares me even more). I would love to hear your thoughts about what might be causing it. Thanks in advance for your help. Helena
Anne-Marie: Hi! I have recently been diagnosed with stickler syndrome which is a connective tissue disorder. I have high myopia, mild sensorineural hearing loss, swelling in my wrist and ankle joints. I have also had my gall bladder removed almost 20 years ago, had Graves’ disease and now have Hashimoto’s and am currently breastfeeding my third child (my older two have also been diagnosed with stickler and eldest with autism as well.) We have been following a plant based diet for over a year now and seen a good improvement in overall health. My children are currently doing the CBO protocol. When I’ve finished breastfeeding, what detoxes am I able to do without a gall bladder? Is there any way of strengthening the connective tissue in the body for both me and my kids to minimise the likelihood of precocious arthritis? In these circumstances how much is osteoarthritis luck of the genetic lottery and how much can be minimised by lifestyle factors? Thanks!
Patty:Hi doctor Cabral! Loving your show! A quick: question: what are your tips on getting through a busy day on little to no sleep? Those days when you just can’t take a nap and have to power through. Thank you in advance for your answer
Yvonne: Dr Esselstyn recommends no oil in the diet – says it causes cardiovascular disease. Your thoughts? I find it hard to eliminate as some food just isn’t satisfying without some avocado or olive oil.
Marie: Hi Doc! What is your verdict on sweat belts around the midsection to increase overall sweat and increase the loss of water weight around the midsection?Also: when it comes to exercise and saunas in general, is there a certain time frame within which you should shower to avoid toxins that were sweated out to be reabsorbed? Thank you!!
