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:
Jen: I haven’t heard you talk about the supplement Tudca yet. What is your opinion?
Alana: Hello doctor Cabral, I’ve been listening to your podcast for a few years now, and it’s one of the constants in my life, so I really wanted to thank you for that. It takes a lot of time and work to record these every single day, and please know that we notice that and appreciate it greatly. I wanted to ask your opinion about something I’ve been struggling with for a while: fat and cellulite on my belly. I’ve never had a flat stomach, but it had gotten worse throughout the years. I’m 43 now, have low female hormones, low thyroid and some gut issues. I’m working on all of those things with a naturopath and have done CBO protocol too. I do 30 minutes or strength training and take long walks, 5-6 days of the week. I’m not overweight and have muscle definition both in my upper and lower body, but my belly just keeps growing it seems. Is there anything you would advise for me to do to get rid of the belly fat and cellulite? I’m already taking supplements, prioritise sleep and relaxation and eat to help my hormone balance and hypothyroidism. Anything you could do to help would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance! Alana
Jenny: Hi Dr. Cabral – I’ve been a loyal listener for several years and can’t thank you enough for all that you and your team do for this community. It’s truly life changing! I see a dermatologist at least annually to check for moles and early skin cancer spots from years of sun damage in my teens and twenties before I knew better. I’ve had several removed from my face and chest and because more seem to appear as time goes on. Is there a natural “facial peel” you would recommend that may help with these proactively? I know you’ve talked about a combination of green clay and ACV. I do have sensitive skin with redness. I think a facial peel may be the way to go for me, but am concerned about going to an esthetician due to the chemicals involved, but I’d like to give the skin on my face a fresh start, if that’s even possible. I’d love to know your thoughts about this. Thank you.
Gina: Thank you for doing what you do and helping others! I am happy to have found your podcast! When I was 19 I was advised by my endocrinologist to take a radio active iodine pill to deplete my thyroid. My thyroid was hyper now hypo because of the treatment. Is there anything I can do to treat it other than being on Synthroid long term since I have nothing to work with anymore since it is no longer there? Thank you!
Moez: Hi Dr. Cabral. I hope you are doing well and have an amazing day. I have been seen these bumps or pimples I am not quite sure what to call them. They just look like a raised tissue or a pimple at the end of my tongue where my throat is. I have never felt anything from them whatsoever. No issues at all. However, they’ve been there for a while now 4 or 5 years or so. It could be more. As far as I remember it’s about 5 years when I first seen them. I wonder what they are and what to do about it. There’s about 4 of them two on each side. Sometimes they look big sometimes they look pretty small and not as inflamed I am assuming. I am 29 years old Male, pretty I exercise regularly 4-5 times weight lifting. I eat pretty clean mostly organic, grass feed, pasture raised etc. don’t have any issues. I used to smoke before for about 10 years then quit 4 years in now. I Don’t drink never have never will either. Take my vitamins regularly.
Moez: Hi again Dr. Cabral. I also have a breathing issue sometimes. It feels like I am struggling for air, I try to inhale and I just can’t get that oxygen that my body needs. In some cases no matter how many times I try to relax myself and inhale I just can’t get that oxygen. The air will go down through my throat but I don’t feel like I got the Oxygen I need. So I just stop thinking about it and in about a minute or less I’ll just breath normal and have that oxygen. I also sometimes have to move my body and be in a certain position to be able to breath and get oxygen. I had this issue since I was a little kid. I am also more of a mouth breather and sometimes sleep with my mouth open and droll as well. The issue feels worsen when I don’t eat very clean like cheat day or over eat on a meal. However, even when I am eating the cleanest it is still there but it feels a lot better. It gets better when I fast but not completely gone tho. Even when I did the 4 days fast i still felt it. I am 29 years old. 5’7 245lb. I am in a weight loss journey still. I was 365lb two years ago. I still got a way to go but taking it slowly and healthy. Side note I do plan on running the big fives pretty soon, I am just not sure if they would help with these issues, As I am feeling pretty amazing otherwise.
