Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend!
I’m looking forward to sharing with you some of our community’s questions that have come in over the past few weeks…
Let’s get started!
Simon: Hi Dr Cabral, I am looking to improve my immune defenses against a ‘certain virus’ and am concerned that my white blood cell count is sub-optimal (4,000/ul) despite my otherwise good health. I suspect this may be a hangover from having VERY low WBC levels after contracting dengue fever 5 years ago. Is increasing my WBC something I should be exploring and what can I do to get my count up?
Lorena: Thank you so much for all you do for your community! Not sure if you remember but I asked here a few weeks ago regarding my elevated heart rate at night according to my Oura ring and that I started to experience a lot of neurological symptoms (similar to MCAS) such as anxiety, heart palpitations and pseudoseizures at the same time. You mentioned that I should check my cortisol levels at night (which I did and was slightly elevated in the PM and low in the AM). I’m a Vata level 1 and 2 IHP so I literally ran all of the labs that you can imagine as I was very confused as to what was going on. Hormones, heavy metals, stool, OAT, neurotransmitters + more. Everything was fine except some candida/mould overgrowth as well as elevated toxic metals. I started the CBO again (last one was over a year ago) + heavy metal detox + 21 day detox all at the same time lol. Anyways, I haven’t felt any neurological symptoms after just a couple of days of starting these protocols. I can’t figure out how this would have happened. Surely 2 days worth of protocols is not enough to stop these symptoms (very happy though). Any idea why?
Lorena: Hi Doc, me again! I forgot to mention that I also ran a precision allergy test by Precision Point Diagnostics because they test IgE, IgG, IgG4 and complement (C3d) from blood serum. It’s much more expensive so not very affordable for a lot of people. Anyways, a lot of things came up and I also eliminated the ones in the red section of my IgE and IgG (vanilla, banana & more) at the same time that I started all the protocols. A lot of them showed in the IgE section and these were foods that I was consuming on a daily basis when I was having all of those symptoms. Do you think it might have been the removal of these foods that caused the relief of symptoms so quickly? If so, it’s crazy how consuming foods you’re sensitive to from an IgE and IgG perspective can do to you! I always thought this wasn’t a big deal but it clearly is.
Nina: Hi doctor Cabral, I get very lightheaded every time I bend down to pick up something. Do you know why this is happening? I do have a low blood pressure, so maybe that could have something to do with it, but I really want to know if there’s anything else that could be causing it. I also always feel cold, especially in my extremities. Just to give you some background, I’m a 44 year old female, no kids, vegan and pretty active. Thanks so much for your answer, I really appreciate your help! Nina
Farrel: Hello, Dr Cabral. I trust you and your family are in great health. Listening to older episodes and about two years ago on a House call segment you were asked about Tongkat Ali and it’s use for athletes and men in their 30’s. You went on to say there’s a product your team will be launching around September 2020 called Libido Booster. I purchase from the site and I’ve never seen it. Has the launch been put on hold or it won’t be released? Keep up great work.
Andjela: Hello Dr!! Thanks for your information! Love following you on Instagram. I had covid (delta) in October 2021, and now 3 months later experiencing hair loss. So are many of my relatives who all had it at the same time. Any suggestions on remedies?
Danielle: Hello Dr. Cabral,Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge in functional medicine. I’ve read your book twice and have no doubt I’ll read it again. I listen to this podcast daily and am awaiting the arrival of the minerals and metals test. My question is related to IIH. (I understand the medical advice disclaimer) Are there any natural ways to reduce pressure in the head? I do not want a LP. How else can I reduce excess fluid? I do take L-Lysine and well as a long list of other supplements daily. I’m also taking Goduchi and Triphala as herbal support and am on 2 pharmaceuticals as well, which Id love to come off of, safely, of course. Thanks so much for your time.
