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!
Jessica: Hi! I’m a 31 yo female. Overall healthy. I developed a rash when I was about 19 that has been biopsied multiple times. Initial few showed generalized inflammation but nothing specific. The most recent was concerning for cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. The physician I saw still decided to label it “parapsoriasis,” because “he didn’t want to put lymphoma in my chart.” Labs have always normal and show no blood involvement. Treatment options are topical steroids (which keep it at bay but have never cleared it completely) and light therapy (which I never had time to commit to 3x per week with work, so I try to get sunlight on my trunk as often as possible). There’s not much data I can find from a FM perspective – maybe some data to show clustering of cases which could indicate an environmental trigger. Any suggestions on what the root cause of this could be and options for FM treatments?
Douglas: Hi there! Love all the knowledge you share and I have learned so much from the labs and your podcasts. Thank you for the noble mission you are on. Your life’s work is truly inspiring. For the last eight months I have been taking your DNS and Crisp Apple Green supplements. Both are outstanding. So I have a brain injury, 6-7 concussion in my life, low elastase with my pancreas, am 6’5” and 230 pounds. Based on the labs, Ive done a mold detox and cleanse protocol and am feeling like I have more energy. Currently am doing the Healing Gut protocol. For the longest time (20 years) I have been a light weight when drinking any kind of alcohol. I drink maybe a glass of wine or cocktail once a month at most. I instantly feel sleepy when I have a glass. I cant even drink a whole glass sometime as i have the sensation its after midnight and I should be asleep. I do not intend to want to drink more should I fix this, I just want to know in case there is something unhealthy with my body such as missing a key enzyme. What are your thoughts? Thanks! Douglas
Angie: Hello Dr. Cabral! Thank you for all you do, you are truly inspiring! I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism after the birth of my son (the same day I gave birth). I had a miscarriage 3 1/2 years later and was diagnosed with essential thrombocythemia. It’s an uncommon disorder with no cure according to my hematologist. I do not have the JAK2 gene mutation but I do have a “less severe” gene mutation that somehow became activated. I did not always have these disorders and was curious if you could make any recommendations on how I can bring my body back into balance for these conditions. I’ve been seeing a naturopath since I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and I recently asked her about leaky gut and if there were tests we could run but she wasn’t interested in running tests (told me to do a low fodmap diet instead). I’m meeting with a Functional doctor next week and hopefully she will be more open to running tests. In the past I had a food sensitivity test and I’m sensitive to a huge list of foods (top foods are wheat and eggs). I had a hormone test a few years back as well and my progesterone is low and my testosterone is barely registering. Lately I’ve been very bloated and gassy even when following the low fodmap food list. Thanks so much!! Angie
Thomas: Hey Dr Cabral! I’ve been listening to your podcasts for about 4 years and share as much of this knowledge as I can remember with others. My wife in particular has experienced more balanced hormones and a better sense of awareness all from your teachings. You are the a saviour and we can’t thank you enough. One mystery that I can’t seem to pinpoint is her coughing after eating (any meal, spicy, sweet, or salty). Even if it’s just cooked vegetables with no oil and very light seasoning. Could eating really cause coughing or do you think it’s just a very broad food allergy?
Justin: I’ve been taking 1 teaspoon of baking soda mixed in 4 to 5 ounces of water almost nightly for the past year. I had heard it keeps you from having to get up frequently to urinate, which has been an issue for me. I also heard that it was good for your kidneys. Sometimes it seems like it helped with frequent urination, and other times not. However I recently heard that frequent consumption of baking soda can neutralize stomach acids, causing a host of problems. What are the benefits of baking soda, and what would be the best dosage for the average person?
Patti: Thank you for significantly helping both myself & my son to live a better life & your team for being so responsive, & helpful. I just listened to the podcast where you answered a question on a hip replacement. What are your thoughts on cortizone shots for pain? Also, antibiotics are recommended for dental work after a joint replacement. What are alternatives? Thank you!
