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:
Ryan: I have 2 questions about supplementing chromium for blood glucose regulation. First, are the effects of supplementing chromium acute? Or if I were to stop, would there still be a lingering effect due to increased stores in my body? If acute, how long would that last? One meal? Two? One day? Secondly, would you use a picolinate version, or a GTF version? Or something else?
Carolyn: Hello Dr. Cabral. I just wanted to tell you I love your podcast and I just finished reading your book. I am 35 and have PCOS and believe I am a kapha body type. I typically try to fast for 14 hours overnight to help with my insulin resistance. However, I work twice a week and leave my house very early on those days. On my way to work I like to drink my coffee (I do add collagen powder to it). I know this breaks my fast, but I have been reading that consuming caffeine on an empty stomach should be avoided. Can this be impacting my weight loss or causing any other negative impact?
Alex: Hello doctor Cabral, I’m really hoping you can help me with the following. My 74 old father won’t stop smoking. He’s been doing it since he was 18 and trust me, we tried everything you can imagine tp get to stop but of no avail. The only win we had is that got him down to 3 cigarettes a day, but that’s all that he is willing to give us. He has high blood pressure and high cholesterol, but other than that no major health issues. I would really like to know if there’s anything he can do to reduce the damage that those cigarettes are creating. I love my dad and I want to keep him healthy and alive as long as possible. Are there any supplements, foods, natural therapies or anything else that we can get him to do in order to lessen the damage a little bit. Thank you so much in advance. Your opinion and knowledge mean the world to me. Best, Alex
Cynthia: Hi doctor Cabral, How would you treat someone who has GI issues (smelly gas & bloating) caused by dysbiosis? I did a stool test which showed no candida or bacterial overgrowth, but lowered amounts of beneficial, residential flora. Thanks, Cynthia
Tracy: Hi Dr Cabral. Thank you so much for your podcasts. They are both inspiring and educational. My question is about diastasis recti. I believe this is why I have a bulge on my stomach that doesn’t go away with diet. I am a mother of 2 (the youngest is 3). How would you recommend to heal this issue.
Sarah: Hi Dr Cabral! If someone absolutely has to take antibiotics, what do you recommend they do (afterwards or in parallel) so their gut health is not ruined?Thanks so much! Sarah
