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!
Liz: Good morning, I have a son who is one of the shortest in his class. He is 8 years old and has always been small for his age as well as a bit slow to hit a growth spurt. He takes a daily gummy vitamin and is active in jiu jitsu. He appears healthy and to be a good weight for his size but I’d like to know if there are any supplements that will help him maximize height growth. I’m sure some is due to genetics but Id like to focus on any nutritional needs I can if there is anything that comes to mind. Genetically, his paternal grandpa was under 5 feet tall. I was small like him as a child then grew in junior high to be tall for a woman and I have a tall dad. In addition, this son had 5 rounds of antibiotics in one year due to multiple ear infections which may also affect growth. However, even before the ear infections he was progressing slowly in height but not weight. Thank you for your time and I’m off to leave a 5 star review!
Katie: I just got my recently blood work back and my HDL was 109. My LDL, triglycerides we’re all In range. I thought I heard you once say that high HDL is not good either. My LDL was 98 and triglycerides was 118. With the high HDL my “total cholesterol came in with a high value of 227. Should I try and lower my HDL?
Sarah: Hello! I’m reaching out for a veteran. I’m curious about heavy metal detox in someone who has shrapnel still inside their body. Is it a bad idea to do a heavy metal detox while shrapnel is still present? Is it better to just support liver detox pathways? What is the best way to go about dealing with ongoing immune responses from these metals like redness, irritation, food sensitivity, brain fog, etc? Will these metals eventually cause infertility? This will be a lifelong issue so I’m trying to figure out the best way to mitigate or lessen any more damage.
Lisa: Hi Dr Cabral My 15 yr old daughter vomits at the beginning of her period, our doctor says this is normal but it doesn’t feel very normal to me. I’m not sure if any of this is relevant but she has allergies to dust & grass, has eczema, HAD asthma as a small child & is always tired, she is having her tonsils & adenoids out next week after 14 years of having issues with them & has never been able to breath out of her right nostril. TIA Lisa
Kerryann: Hi – Firstly i want to say i love, love, love your podcasts they are totally changing my life. I’ve just started to change my normal fasting routing (16/8) or (OMAD) to your 12/14 hour one and i’m loving it so much more. I’m in the UK – is it at all possible to get a copy of your book? the website does not give me an option to put my UK address in? I would also love to know more about becoming a IHP
Jeremar: I’ve recently discovered your podcast and been listening to it on regular now. My question is I’m interested in the Mediterranean diet but I’m unsure of foods and portion size and if there’s a percentage of intake for each food group. I also work night shift which throws me off on eating times. Could you do a show these topics. Thanks for your help and for your shows.
