Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows!
This is where we answer our community’s wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track!
Check out today’s questions:
Maria: Hello and thank you for all you do. I’m really enjoying listening to all your podcasts and have gotten really good at searching for things. I wanted to know if you can recommend a brand of ox bile. I looked and looked and can’t find a brand that you would recommend. And I’m sorry if it’s there but I can’t find it. Can you give me a recommendation.
Maria: Hi Dr. Cabral, I first want to say that I love your podcast and its been a huge inspiration for me to move from conventional medicine to integrative medicine which is my true calling. I would love to here more about your ideas on V shots for children and what parents should be considering as far as benefits and risks. Again, such a fantastic resource for everyone, Thanks!
Lauren: Hello! I’m wondering what your thoughts are around endometriosis. I had laparoscopic surgery about a year ago and although my periods are not excruciating anymore, they are still painful (meaning I am still relying on pain killers and needing time off work), despite the endometriosis being removed. My gynaecologist’s solution is to go on the birth control pill or IUD but that doesn’t sit right with me. Why would I still be in pain if the cause of the pain has been removed? Every practitioner has a different view on the reason but despite doing it all (acupuncture, chiro, naturopath, mayan massage, chinese medicine, pelvic physiotherapist…etc), I am yet to find anything that truly helps my symptoms. I am feeling very hopeless and find it hard to trust even holistic practitioners as they have mostly just recommended supplements with a ‘see what sticks’ mentality – leaving me frustrated and out of pocket hundreds of $$! I suppose I’d like to know what the root cause of endo is and how can start my journey of truly healing myself? Thank you in advance!
Brittany: Hi Dr. Cabral! Can you talk a little about skin petechiae? I have a few small red dots (not close together) on my stomach that my doctor has more or less said not to worry about. They’ve been there for a few years (I noticed them after birthing my second child but that doesn’t mean they weren’t present beforehand) and haven’t changed. I’m not really concerned but I do feel like it’s a reflection of something internally. Any thoughts?
Stormy: I have always worked out five days a week and I walk 20,000 steps on the weekends. I am 48 years old and I have done the 16/8 for three weeks. Started losing when I increased my protein and decreased my carbs (during 3rd week). I lost three pounds. I do not want to lose more then 10 pounds. I weigh 143 and I am 5’2. I have always been blessed with muscles. My calorie intake is 1600-2000 a day. I had bloating issues and they are gone. I want to remain healthy, what do you suggest would be the best eating plan? I also do not want to mess with my hormones or muscle mass.
Danika: Hi Doc, been learning from you for a few years now. I’m 29 years old (prob 30 by the time you read this). When I was 9 years old I first put on a little weight to have what you call “cortisol belly,” skinny arms and legs, just that hormonal pudge. Chronic pain in my low back & left hip set in at age 11. Depression, fatigue, anxiety all through school years. Was active playing water sports (I’m sure 10 years of daily chlorine did not help my thyroid) but was always tired. My menstrual periods have always been INTENSE with such bad cramping that I’m out of service from 3-6 days a month, sometimes 10! I’ve been on my healing journey for about 4 years now. I have improved. I’m currently detoxing aluminum that I saw on your HTMA lab I took, I had the 4 high pattern. I also took a salivary hormone lab and my cortisol throughout the day was extremely low, and my Estrogen 3 (estriol) was high. I’m also having a lot of anxiety. I’ve hit a point where my own body is confusing me! I’m fatigued and feel exhausted w/ my body barely producing any cortisol, yet still having panic attacks that sometimes feel like heart attacks. My body is tired, my periods wreck me, I seem to catch every sinus infection going around, & this extra layer of body fat is so hard to get rid of. Help!
