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!
Justin: Hi Dr. Cabral, Does cold weather make you sick? My mother is paranoid about her body being cold even when she is inside, and being out in the cold weather she is even more paranoid. She is convinced cold weather will make her sick. I’ve looked this up and could not find anything on it. Thanks
Fay: I’m curious… Dr. Cabral you cured yourself of all your diseases. Drs tell me mine is not reversible. I have Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI).. my pancreas is not producing the enzymes I need to digest my fats, proteins and carbs. I have done your labs and your protocols. However, I am going to have this continued bacterial overgrowth because of the EPI. I am taking XXXX enzymes with all meals. My pancreas is fine, not enlarged. My liver is fine..I still have my gallbladder. I have no surgeries or diseases. I’ve done all the bloodwork, endoscopy etc. I am fine except for the EPI. My Dr said I was drinking more alcohol than I should have on a daily basis. It’s been a few years now that I only have few drinks on weekends. I know I should have none.. I’ve tried that with no change. My question is can I heal my pancreas so that it makes the enzymes I need? Otherwise there’s no point in doing anything more to get rid of the excess bacteria I have.. it’ll just keep coming back. I suffer with bloating and burping. XXXX enzymes helps but I really don’t want to take these pills the rest of my life if I don’t have to. Thanks for any insight with this.
Kenny: Hi Dr. Cabral, a friend sent me an article saying that there’s health risks to taking melatonin. I take it at least 5 nights a week and I know in the past you’ve spoken very highly on melatonin and it’s safety. Here is a link to the article. It’s CNN, so I am very skeptical already. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Thx! https://www.cnn.com/2022/02/01/health/melatonin-overuse-wellness/index.html
Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your podcast and have learned so much from it! I’ve had candida overgrowth and other gut issues that I have been working on. I’ve done a couple of protocols for candida and parasites in the past (not yours) but still experience lot’s of bloating. I take probiotics daily. One of the probiotics I take has S.boulardi in it. I know it’s a good yeast, but it still yeast. My question: can Saccharomyces boulardii make candida worse? I also had to take antibiotic recently (Xifaxan), so I want to bring good bacteria to my gut now. Will I benefit from s.boulardi, or can it make my candida worse? (I just purchased Complete Candida, Matabolic and Vitamins test from you and will retest for candida to see where I stand now, I’m curious about the “good fungi” and candida interaction)
Alicja: Hi again Dr. Cabral, I also would love to ask you about the medicianal mushrooms and candida overgrowth? Chaga, Reishi, Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Cordyceps etc. Can they be good for a person with gut imbalances and candida overgrowth? Or will they make my condition worse? Thank you so much for your answers. Lot’s of gratitude and love towards you and your family.
Elizabeth: Hi Dr. Cabral! Thank you for all of your wonderful wisdom – I have been a faithful follower for many years. My daughter was diagnosed with a Chiari-1 malformation at age 2 (about 4 years ago) after a fall that required a CT scan due to persistent concussive symptoms. We had an MRI one year ago that showed interval development of a syrinx. Because of the higher probability that it may cause irreversible paresthesias and/or chronic pain, we decided to have decompression surgery in attempt to reduce the pressure in her spinal cord. She has had a follow-up MRI in the past 6 months which has not shown much improvement in the size of the syrinx. Wanting to avoid surgery again, I am curious as to whether you have any recommendations (not cures, diagnoses or treatments) to improve her symptoms. We are currently in PT due to her low muscle tone and poor coordination. I also give her a high quality multivitamin, Vitamin D3/K2, and omega daily. How would you treat this if it were your daughter? Thank you again! Elizabeth
