HouseCall: Viagra, Tofu & Phytoestrogens, High Carb Diets, Reintroducing Carbs, Oral Biofilms, Nasolabial Lines
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:
Dean: Hi Dr Cabral, what are your thoughts on Viagra? Will it affect the stomach or hormones over the short term? I am working on the underlying issue but until then do you think it is ok to use without too many negative side effects on the stomach or hormones? I am not worried about my heart
Valeria: Hi dr.cabral, I read in your book that I suggest only 1-2 servings of tofu a week due to the phytoestrogens. However, do you have a recommended limit to vital wheat gluten a week given its used as a popular high protein alternative to meat? Even if one isnt gluten intolerant.
Ryan: Do you know of the old Rice-Fruit diet experiment, and other such high carb, low fat diet studies on diabetes and insulin sensitivity? Seems to turn conventional wisdom on its head when it comes to blood sugar control. More carbs and less fat seems to enhance insulin sensitivity. Thoughts on dietary fat vs. carbs for insulin resistance/sensitivity?
Samantha: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for all that you do! I had amazing success with the first phase of your Fatlossity system, I felt energized, lost 2 pounds every week, had even energy and finally overcame my sugar addiction with ease. However, during the second phase when I added berries into my smoothie my sugar cravings came back with vengeance. I’m sad to say that I gained some weight back due to mindless eating and giving into my cravings. My stress levels are low (I’m a yoga and meditation instructor and am taking two months off to travel soon so my mind and heart feel happy).Does this happen when reintroducing fruit or starches after a hiatus? And what should my next move be, to resume phase one or two of Fatlossity? Perhaps a Detox instead? I feel defeated and would love any advice. Thank you, Samantha
Jim: I was wondering if the FloraFilm on Equilibrium nutrition can be taken to remove bio films from bacteria in the mouth. Specifically for bacterial periodontal disease to remove high risk pathogens. Could the capsules be opened and swished orally during oil pulling? What suggestions do you have to remove the bacteria aside from antibiotics? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
Dani: Hey Dr. Cabral. Great show as always. I’m not certain if this is exactly in your filed of expertise but is there any way to remove or minimise nasolabial lines and discolourations in a safe, non surgical way? Since listening your program I avoid using facial products with parabens, dyes, red 3,green,yellow,blue,titanium dioxide etc because of the potential rain barrel overflow. Is there any help you can recommend for anti-aging for those in mid 30’s or is it something we must accept? As always keep up great work
