HouseCall: MTHFR & Detoxing, Proteinuria, Adrenal vs. Thyroid Testing, Eyes Stinging, Crohn’s & Colitis & Detoxing, Eating Healthy While Traveling
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!
Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral I read a post on the fb detox group regarding the 21 day detox. This persons concern was after the 21 day detox it released heavy metals which seeped into the blood stream, and as this person detox pathways were not functioning due to MTHFR, this person stated feeling a whole lot worse and affecting the thyroid. My question is what would you suggest for someone who has this sort of reaction after a detox? And dealing with detox pathways Many thanks
Natalie: Hi Dr. Cabral: Thank you for all you do to help people. My spouse seems to have proteinuria. He has been seen by a nephrologist who confirms that there seems to no explanation for the protein found in his urine, so he suspects benign microscopic changes to the kidney may be causing this. That is on the one hand a relief, but on the other frustrating because until about a year or two ago, he NEVER had foam or bubbles in his urine so he KNOWS there something is not “normal” in his body. Ironically, since we were cleared by the nephrologist we commenced your detox and the bubbles in his urine have actually increased. We are frustrated, confused and feeling rather hopeless. If you could help us figure out where to go from here we would be so grateful. My spouse is a 37 year old male, plays hockey twice a week, has never smoked in his life and eats a clean plant based diet. He has also been doing TCM acupuncture and teas to strengthen his kidneys but the bubbles in the urine persist. Thank you in advance for your compassion and determination to help people like my spouse who wants to help themselves but are at a loss now as to how.
Joanna: Hey there Dr Cabral My question is what is the difference with the adrenal hormone and adrenal thyroid hormone lab compared to the dutch test? The dutch test i believe looks at different forms of estrogen and different pathways etc i hear its a little more extensive what are your thoughts? Many thanks Joanna
Jamie: Belated Happy New Year and thank you again for all you do – may 2020 be another amazing year for you and the Team. Quick question, recently (around new years eve) i started waking up and my eyes would be mildly stinging each morning, there is a little dried build up around them but not much when i wake up. It takes about an hour for my eyes to stop the symptoms in the morning but it is making it morning difficult to wake up early in the morning. I definitely had a cheat meal too many over christmas and wonder if this is the result. I started the 3 week detox on 5th Jan so am 1 week in now. Oura ring telling me sleep is generally good this last week but symptoms are still there. I have 2 more weeks to go on detox so excited by that but thought i would reach out as the sore eyes are frustrating my morning routine! thanks again for all you do and best wishes to you and your family.
Julie: I have been recommended this detox by a friend. I have Crohn’s / Colitis and wondered if it is suitable? I currently have infusions and take azathioprine tablets for treatment. Is it ok to do the detox while on these medications? Also which would you suggest? Thanks Julie
Judy: Hello. I recently heard on a podcast that you were at a convention in Vegas. I frequently have conferences in Vegas along the strip, and I was curious where and what did you eat to stay healthy during this time where people are surrounded by lots of unhealthy options?
