Check out today’s questions:
Anonymous: Dr. Cabral, I searched your podcasts and only found a couple short snippets on the topic of scleroderma. I am awaiting a visit with a rheumatologist, but in the mean time would like your perspective on this. I have had Reynauds symptoms for 10 years and the past 8 years have had chronic constipation and bloating, with several areas of scar tissue being seen in CT scans and xrays, but scleroderma was not brought to my attention until recently, when an OT connected the dots learning about my Reynauds symptoms. Obviously, this would be the type of scleroderma that impacts the internal organs, and not the skin. I lost my grandmother to scleroderma at a very early age, so it is present in my family and the “gene” associated with the disease is prominent in my family, manifesting as MS, diabetes, and colitis. I have done your CBO protocol after completing the stool and heavy metals test, with very little to no success. Without giving me medical advice, can you give me some advice? (Hopefully you find the humor in that). If a scleroderma diagnosis is positive, how would you recommend approaching it without Big Pharma in my pocket (and bloodstream)? Thank you so much for your thoughts.
Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral – Please know that your whole community of faithful listeners is beyond grateful for what you and your team do every single day! My question is for my daugher and breastfeeding. She has an infant and is planning to nurse for the first 12 months, if possible. Realizing you cannot provide medical advice, etc., I’m curious about what you and your wife chose to do when it was time to wean your two daughters. She also follows your protocols (including your prenatal protocol) and is gluten and dairy free. She doesn’t want to introduce cows milk dairy as is traditionally recommended by pediatricians. Did you transition your daughters to goats milk or another alternative like almond milk after nursing? Thanks for all you do!!
Shaun: I listen to your intermittent fasting podcast and I am really interested in the flex meal once a week with 24hr fasting 1-2X a wk with 2-4 cups of greens/salads/day. Any written plans on this where I can glance at instead of trying to figure out what to eat daily and cal. My macros? I like to get my meals set for the week since I have kids and I’m a firefighter, not a lot of time in morning to always create my meals…
Ashley: Hey! I love listening to your podcast, you mentioned In this episode that you recommended a certain colon cleanse.. and that it was not your brand, I don’t see it anywhere on show notes. Could you tell me the brand?
Nikki: Hi Dr. Cabral. I have a question about something rarely talked about. Can you talk about group A strep? I recently had a severe kind of vaginosis that was so itchy and painful I could hardly walk or sleep. I tried boric acid with no help and it lasted for 2 weeks before I finally went into the doctors. They ran every test you could and all came up negative except for group A strep! The doctor said its very unusual to see in adults but nonetheless less said I needed antibiotics. I was so desperate I had to. Things were progressively getting worse and I was developing sores down there. Simultaneously I ended up with major hemeroid, sore throat, headache, and a huge sore on my mouth that won’t get better even with my tea tree oil! Anyways my 4 yr old daughter caught it from me I think somehow and is now suffering similar issues down there without the pain. Again I think I need to do antibiotics as I cannot figure out how to recover this on my own as it is not typical vaginitis. Can you talk a little about what this is, how could me and my daughter have gotten it, if its possible to get rid of without antibiotics, and if I should have my husband tested as a carrier? I’m wondering if I picked it up from him . Anyway thanks so much for all you do! God bless!
Alicja: Hi Dr. Cabral, I want to ask you how did you fix your type 2 diabetes? My last blood work showed Hemoglobin A1C at 5.9, which is a little too high. I recently bought glucometer and my fasting glucose is around 105. For the last few days since I started measuring, my glucose level doesn’t want to go lower than 105 (even when I’m before bed or before meal). I want to reverse it and I would love to hear how you fixed your sugar imbalances. (btw I’m underweight ( BMI below 16), with hypothyroidism and gut issues that I’m currently addressing) Also I would like to get CGM and was wondering if this device would survive hot yoga workouts (high humidity, 105F and LOTS of sweat) Thank you so much for your answers and all your wonderful work. Your big fan Alicja
