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:
Holly: Hi Dr. Cabral, thank you for being such an inspiration and source of knowledge; you’ve transformed my health and now helping me transform my families too! My youngest son aged 3.5 often sleeps with his mouth open (breathing through it rather than his nose) I’ve heard you mention this isnt good and wondered 1. Why? 2. How I can make him a nose breather (if that’s possible)? I also hear him grinding his teeth often in his sleep, is that something to worry about? Thanks again, Holly x
Anonymous: Hi Dr. C! Thanks again for all you do. I am doing the CBO and following it to a T. I did have a question as some of the food listed on your sensitive gut guide are “not approved” when it comes to removing or limiting traditional FODMAPs. For example asparagus, broccoli, beans, beets, watermelon, and squash. What is the difference in your plan vs that? I know you have a method to your madness but just curious on your variations. Are those foods not actually fermentable in our guts? Also as we reintroduce new foods down the road, what symptoms should we look for? Would they just be digestive disturbances since this is a gut protocol or would they mimic food sensitivity symptoms? Thanks again!!
Andrea: Hi! Thank you so much for answering my question! What is the minimum fat percentage you’d recommend for a woman? It seems like a very low fat percentage can sometimes cause hormonal dysfunction. Would you say 15% maybe?
Catherine: Can integrative medicine help people who suffer from arrhythmia?
Dar: I’m 39 years old and had low ferritin around 4. My specialist had a CT scan done and he noticed that one of my kidneys had shrunk quite a bit and believes only the one kidney is functioning but doing well. Is there anything I can do to try to regrow the shrunk kidney (most likely the MD said from a sports injury or since birth) I had told him I took a number of hits in physical sports growing up. Also what do you recommend for supplementing the remaining kidney with.
Maureen: Dear Dr. Cabral, Thank you for your amazing podcast. I look forward to it every day and have learned so many tips to improve my health. My question has to do with eating seeds. Every day, I put 2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds and 2 Tablespoons of Flax Seeds in the Daily Nutritional Shake. I blend this all up to make it easier to digest. I often eat Hemps Seeds later in the day for additional protein as well as pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds on my salad. Do you think this is too many seeds to eat in one day? Might I develop an allergy to them or is it hard on the digestive system to eat this many seeds?
