Today’s Cabral Concept is here!
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:
Megan: Hi Dr C, love your work! I’m writing in to try and better understand in your own experience wild yam and the benefits to someone with low progesterone. There seems to be a lot of warnings out there about using it but keen to better understand from a research perspective how it actually helps to boost progesterone when it seems to be the common understanding that it doesn’t actually appear to be able to convert the diosgenin outside of a lab. Are there any issues with this raising estrogen and dhea further for people with elevated levels of those. Could this be beneficial for fertility to help supercharge the cervical mucous and potentially increase chance of the embryo ‘sticking’. Keen to hear why you are now using it in one of your new products and when to use it. If so can the wild yam cream be just as affective? Thanks so much
Chelsea: My 6 month old son has been diagnosed with a peanut allergy. I’ve listened to your previous podcasts where you recommend running an organic acid test and a stool test to see if there is any candida / leaky gut. I’m wondering if this allergy could have anything to do with heavy metals (potentially from vaccines) and if i should run a test for that? Also I just found out that our home has mold, so we are moving right away to hopefully solve that problem. Do you have protocols for babies this young? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all you do.
Alida: Hi Stephen, I’ve been struggling with chronic hives for almost a year and nobody can help me find the root cause of it to make it stop. All the doctors do is give me pills and creams to cover up what is going on. They aren’t helping anyway. To give you a little background, I’m a 42 year old female, overweight, had a full hysterectomy 4 years ago, have had acid reflux since I was 20 and been taking omprazole for 22 years, 2 years ago they found a tumor on my pituitary gland which is causing adrenal insufficiency (I’m on 5mg of Prednisone for this) and I have sleep apnea. Among all these, the hives is definitely the worst to deal with. Of course I still want to make everything better, but the constant hives and itching is extremely bothersome. I’ve tried a couple different diets with no success. I’m hoping you are able to help please.
Marty: I’ve been doing the intermittent fasting for 4 weeks, 16/8. I’ve gained 4 pounds. Help!
Sam: Hi, Dr. Cabral! I’m wondering if you know anything about Betaine (trimethylglycine)supplementation and methylation. I read about it in a MTHFR group I’m in but haven’t found much info on it. My second question is regarding high blood pressure and hormones. What is the connection, if any? I have had issues with anxiety and high blood pressure despite being thin and eating clean since having my son two years ago.I have not had my hormones tested but recently did Organic Acids and HTMA tests and it was recommended that I test hormones as well. Thanks so much!
Lily: Hi Dr. Cabral, I was wondering if there’s a connection between high blood glucose and the gut health? Does one influence the other? I’m asking because I’ve been wearing CGM for a few weeks and it shows that a lot of foods that I’m currently eating are raising my blood sugar – way above the normal. I also have a history of gut issues (imbalanced gut flora), so I was wondering if there’s connection between the two. Thanks so much in advance for your answer, I appreciate you and all that you do! Lily
