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:
Victor: Would you recommend an under desk treadmill? I spend so many hours sitting down because of work and was thinking setting out my office in a way that I could walk in the treadmill while working. And no, this is not a replacement to my workouts or outdoor walking. It’s just that sometimes I find it hard to get my 10k steps daily. I feel like I get a lot in the morning (walk to the gym and back) but that’s around 7k steps. Then sometimes I don’t have time to leave the house for another walk because I’m super busy with work… hence was thinking the under desk treadmill!
Thomas: Hey Dr. Cabral, thank you for the endless wisdom and the many years you’ve added onto my life. I wanted to ask you about broccoli sprouts. I know they are full of sulforafane, so I grow my own in a jar, and put a dense handful into my morning smoothies. Do you grow and/ or use them? Sometimes they smell pungent so it’s hard to tell if it’s the beneficial sulforafane or something bad like mold. I try to err on the safe side so wanted to see what your pros/cons would be. Thanks!
Katie: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’m wondering your advice for someone who has done gut healing but still experiences allergy symptoms. I’ve worked with your team for about 3 years now and have done CBO once + a second short round, 2 mold protocols (and testing for mold in house – none), a heavy metal detox, rebalanced hormones + cortisol levels, and supplements to adjust other imbalances that came up, plus took out food sensitivities. I ran the big 5 again a year ago and things were much improved, so I know it’s working to some extent. I no longer experience hay fever symptoms like Post nasal drip, itchy eyes, runny nose, etc. However I do still experience asthma/allergy symptoms in the form of sinus headaches/migraines, and breathing troubles. The breathing troubles are not just standard asthma attacks, but what I can best describe as “sniffing for air” – a sensation I’m not getting enough air in (easily) through the nose, so it’s as if I gasp for air through the nostrils. Often my throat & tongue muscles feel tense as well. I’m currently on Cingular and Xyzal, plus HistPro and other allergies teas & tinctures, but can’t seem to totally kick my allergies. What recommend next steps would you take if you were in my shoes?
Katie: Hi Dr. Cabral! Wondering if you can provide an explanation for feeling a watery mouth/ slightly nauseous sensation during late nights or early mornings. I notice if I stay up late (no alcohol), or wake up early (before 7am sometimes!), I get this uncomfortable feeling paired with fatigue. Eating seems to help it so I wonder if it’s related to blood sugar? So curious your thoughts! Thanks for your help always 🙂
Erica: Hey Cabral! I’m not sure if you have answered this question before.. I couldn’t find it online.. but I was wondering what your daily eating + supplement routine looks like. What times you eat breakfast, lunch, dinner.. possibly a juice.. what your go to eating routine looks like.. i..e breakfast = smoothie + oatmeal, lunch = vegetables + lean protein.. foods you eat most commonly, etc. of course I know everyone’s body is different.. and reacts / responds to things differently.. but it would be cool if you maybe made an episode on this ! Thanks!
Kelsey: Any tips for living with thalassemia minor? Are there any gut connections?
