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:
Lorena: Hello! You are truly incredible, I love your work. My question is regarding the adrenals. I am a 25 Vata and currently on stage 5 of adrenal fatigue (ongoing resistance). My tsh is functionally low and so are all my sex hormones (including estrogen). I’m working my way the destress protocol but I just get confused whenever I hear you say “the body is under stress and so it will produce more cortisol”. Looking at thyroid for example, I know thyroid is reduced in higher levels of cortisol but in someone that is not producing enough cortisol because the adrenals are exhausted, this doesn’t apply right? I guess my question is “can someone be on the fight or flight, if they are on the later stages of adrenal fatigue?”. I would assume that since little cortisol is being produced, the body is not stressed and therefore not in the fight or flight?
Stefanie: Hi, before my question I wanted to thank you for and your team for all that do everyday. Now to my question, I am 34 yrs old and had my gallbladder removed a few years ago and from time to time I feel similar pain but to a lower level on my right side right under my ribcage. I was told that sometimes I can have stone residue on that duct between my liver and my now removed gallbladder. I have gotten sonogram, mri and nothing comes up. My cbc showed for sometime to have high cholesterol but I managed to bring that down. Currently I do macros with 50 g of fat a day and definitely seen a change in my overall health but I still have this pain. I do strength training 4 times a week and cardio twice a week, 8k steps a day. I also drink a gallon of water a day. I take omega 3, vitamin d, zinc, magnesium, and a multivitamin. How much fat should be consuming and what kind of fats ? I normally eat organic chicken breast, organic ground turkey breast, top round beef (which has lower fat), almonds, evoo cold pressed, avocado, oats, powder peanut butter, cage free eggs, some coffee cream and that’s mainly what my fat sources are overall. I rarely eat processed foods, thank you.
Yasmin: Would you do a podcast on psoriasis please. How can we cure it? Without having to omit absolutely everything from our diet (which is what I see people do). Is it curable? Have you treated patients with skin problems like this.
Anonymous: Hi dr Cabral! I am a wine sales rep and so I have to drink for my job. I love wine but I get hungover off of one glass. Are there ways to support the body during drinking? I only drink a few glasses a week max but I want to make sure I’m staying healthy. Also any tips for preventing the hangover? Thanks!
Alison: RE: Hypothryroidism and Hashimotos Is it possible to reverse these two? I see a Dr. at Vanderbilt Univ. Medical Ctr. and he tells me it is not even a possibility.
Tina: Thank you for everything you do. I recently did the big five and I am working with a level two practitioner and I am so excited about my journey to wellness. I have a reverse osmosis under the sink water system. I read somewhere that the holding tank under my sink can cause the water to get moldy. So I went ahead and purchased a test kit that I took at home and sent off to the lab and the results came back telling me the below …. I’m not quite sure what to make of this. Is this water harmful to drink? From what I understand all water, from an RO system and even a Berkey will have some type of bacteria in it. The only pure water is distilled. Thank you!!! Total HPC Bacteria 580000 CFU/100ml SLR. Health Effects: Heterotrophic (carbon-consuming) bacteria include a wide range of relatively harmless microorganisms that are commonly present in natural water sources. While HPC is indeed an indicator of overall bacterial presence in your water, it is not a good indicator of health risk since many of these bacteria are not pathogenic, or likely to affect your health. On the other hand, coliform and e.coli bacteria, are well known indicators of pathogenic health risk. Common Sources: Heterotrophs are microorganisms that require organic carbon to grow and reproduce.
