HouseCall: Stop Losing Weight, Post-Meal Walk, Sick Child, Polyp Production, Thick Mucus
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:
Denise: I just finished reading ‘The Rain Barrel Effect’. I couldn’t put it down. So good! I am 51 years old and I have been on a wellness journey for over 15 years now so I do follow a lot of the principles in the book. I have been struggling with gut disbiosis for a long time. My most recent attempt to correct this was through Viome (microbiome stool testing). I am not seeing the results I was hoping for.My main issues right now are hormonal and digestive issues. I recently had a colonoscopy and was very surprised to find out I have diverticulosis in my entire colon. I have been following a very strict all organic, mostly plant based with high fiber for over 15 years so this puzzles me.I have looked into your tests and detox protocols. My thought was to do a 21 day detox to start. I do have some concerns with the shakes. I tend to not like the taste of protein shakes. Would you happen to have samples of your shakes that could be tried before committing to the 21 day protocol? I currently weigh 130 pounds and feel really good at 125. I would like to do the 21 day detox for detox purposes, but don’t want to lose 15 pounds. Can this be done without losing that much?Thanks,
Simon: Hi Dr Cabral, I was hoping you could dive a bit deeper into why you recommend taking a walk after a meal, but recommend against standing whilst eating? Wouldn’t this be practically the same thing, or is the walk not suppose to be straight after the meal?

Leah: Hello and thank you in advance for answering my question! I would like to know why do bodies produce polyps? I seem to be a super producer of them. I have had surgery to remove them from my nasal cavity so I can breathe easier, I have had 9 removed from my colon(pre-cancerous), and I was recently told that I have one growing on my cervix. Also, what are your thoughts on the surgical removal of polyps? I’ve been told that I need to do a yearly colonoscopy to remove any more that have grown (I’m 35 years old). Is there a way to shrink and get rid of polyps without surgically removing them?
Katie: I ran the organic acids test last October of 2019 and everything came back great. Since then I have started having thick mucus in the back of my throat/mid esophagus along with stuffy nose congestion alternating with runny nose and slight left ear pain. I feel exhausted and completely run down. My primary care doctor ran CBC/thyroid/metabolic panel and that was fine as well. My primary care doctor that it could be acid reflux and I tried Prilosec for a few days but no change. I feel like my throat is inflamed and Having difficulty swallowing some foods.
