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!
Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you for all you do and for your amazing podcasts, you are a wealth of knowledge and I trust your word before anyone else!! My question is about sodium. I get really dry skin mostly on my face when I have a very small amount of salt. Is this a gut issue like candida or yeast overgrowth, why would this be happening so much later in life? I’m a male, 43 years of age and I’m in pretty good health overall. I never had an issue with salt when I was younger, but now my nose, cheeks and sometimes hands get really really dry. I predominantly have salt only on the weekends, and whether its celtic or himalayan and maybe a cheat meal from a restaurant, it just seems to overloaded my body. I always keep up with my water throughout the day so I am hydrated as well. Any help with this is greatly appreciated, keep up the fantastic work!!!
Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral thank you for all you do and for putting out these podcasts daily. They’re highly informative and I’m learning new things everyday!! My question is about bcaa’s. I know you’ve talked about them before but I was just wondering if when working out or lifting weights, a person can have 3-5 grams in water during the session to keep the body anabolic and not tap into muscle as a fuel source? Ive heard that the leucine in bcaa’s, if your having it every 3-4 hours throughout the day (especially if your not having any fish or meat with your meal) will basically flip an internal switch to keep you in a anabolic state so you don’t slip into catabolism and you can keep building muscle. I know we are supposed to have half our body weight in protein a day, so would this go against that and up your protein intake too much? Thank you again for all you do!
Kelsey: I’m wondering the best approach to managing weight gain and inflammation and overall feeling better while taking an aromatase inhibitor.
Luciana: Dr. Cabral, I have a severe case of keloid scars. I have done multiple surgeries to remove them, but it keeps coming back. My last surgery was 2 years ago to remove two very large scars from my back and shoulder. After the surgery we followed up with radiation, compression, and steroid shots. I’ve been battling this since I was in 4th grade and have tried everything modern medicine has to offer. Yesterday I went to my doctor to get more steroid shots and he said I can’t get them anymore because the skin is too thin. The scar is getting wider because of the tension in the shoulder. I’ve asked Naturopathic doctors before, but they didn’t know how to help me. I’ve been following your work for the last few months and I’m getting ready to start the 21 day detox this weekend. Modern medicine claims that keloid scars are genetic, even though I’m the only one in my family who has it. I’ve always asked why I’ve only start developing them after age 10. Have you threated any patients with the same condition? What would your recommendation be? Should I setup an online consultation with you so we can further discuss the matter? Thank you for your time, Luciana
Alexis: Hello Dr Cabral, I’m in IHP2 and grateful for all you do. I was on the mend from Covid and 2 days later I woke with full body severe nerve pain. Then full body numbness & no longer able to walk. Diagnosed as Transverse Myelitis and positive for HHV6 and MOG. As a child I had JRA and EBV (then was fine!) and later had issues arise as an adult like: shingles, rashes, vertigo, food sensitivities. I worked with someone to get rid of Cdiff and Giardia. I’ve sealed and healed my gut a ton. But I must still have a higher viral load and/or other remaining issues, and this current virus attacked my nerves? What is the root?! I believe I can heal and I will! Any guidance on steps… greatly appreciated in this time of need, thank you
Tonya: Hello. My son has encopresis. He was diagnosed when he was 3 and now he is 10. For years the doctors said Miralax was the answer. Last year I decided enough was enough and quit the miralax. I hired a nutritionist and we did a food sensitivities test. Turns out he is allergic to dairy, gluten, soy, egg whites, peanuts, & tilapia. I searched your podcasts and found 1 other where you also suggested other testing so next we will do the stool test and so on. However, Ive also heard you mention a 5 day intestinal cleanse. And I was wondering if we could do this? Would this also work as a “Miralax”? Currently we are doing aloe vera juice and magnesium as well as a major diet change (that has been going great)! Thank you so much for everything!!
