Check out today’s questions:
Tara: Hello, My name is Tara and I’ve had stomach issues my whole life. Everyone said it was just a stress stomach. Within the last 6 weeks I was introduce to a natural path doctor who has brought this stomach issue of mine to a head. She believes I have Biofilm. I have tried researching this and cannot find many people speaking about it. My doctor and I have started a plan on how to tackle it but curious if Dr Cabral has dived into this as well? I have been eating great and taking top of the line suppliments and test I am still deficient in all B’s, D, C , folate, etc. I resonate with so many of these podcasts and yet I have not heard anything on this issue of biofilm. I am just curious if Dr Cabral has any insight on this topic. Thank you
Meagan: Hello Dr. CABRAL! I think I may have heard you mention palate expanders on one of your episodes discussing mouth breathing. Can you expand on that a bit? I’m debating getting one for my 7 year old daughter but want to weigh the pros and cons. Thank you!!
Bailey: I have a 12 month old who has a dairy allergy. I completely avoided dairy & gluten when I was breastfeeding her due to colic and digestive issues. I started her on raw goats milk after nursing, she wasn’t a fan.. so she drinks raw cows milk. I plan to switch to nut milk / only water once she is getting more calories and fat from food. One day we ran out of milk, so I gave her some store bought whole milk (temporarily), she developed digestive pain, and hives shortly after. The hives have lasted almost a week now, I know dairy takes a long time to leave the system. I feel like I did everything right with her. She was born vaginally, is unvaccinated, she has never been on antibiotics, she took a probiotic with her breastmilk the whole year she breastfed, dairy wasn’t introduced to her till 12 months, we live in the country without a ton of environmental toxins, yet she has this allergy. I myself have always been sensitive to dairy, so my guess is genetics. My question is, what is the bottom line.. what is the ROOT cause of so many childhood food allergies? & Why do we “out-grow” them? This is becoming such a norm.
Jessica: Hi Doctor Cabral! Thank you for being a source of well-studied information on all things health and wellness. I have been looking into the iodine controversy and whether or not iodine is beneficial or harmful for thyroid patients, specifically Hashimoto’s. There is research on how going on a low-iodine food diet along with no supplemental iodine in any form with support the thyroid in healing from Hashimoto’s. I have heard strong views from both sides, and I am hoping to get your view on the topic and how you would approach this subject in the helping of a family member.
Kasia: Hi Dr. Cabral, Hope this email finds you well. I watched your video about Serrapeptase enzyme. Thank you so much for the detailed informative and useful information. I have silicone breast implants. I have purchased the Serrapeptase product for my chronic nose sinus, but I am concerned it might deteriorate the capsule that naturally form around the a breast implants. I’ve read on line it eats non-living living tissues; including scar tissue and maybe capsule. Others note, it should be fine to use for someone with breast implants. Do you know if taking the enzyme Serrapeptase, can be taken by someone with breast implants? Do you know of women with breast implants, who have been taking it? What’s their feedback? For the past 3-4 weeks, I have been taking a daily therapautic dose of about 120,000SPU. I have noticed my breast fat has slightly reduced. I don’t know if it’s because of the Serrapeptase, or the intermittend fasting I have started at the same time. I appreciate your input, and advise.
Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral, I was wondering what can be the cause (and possible solution) for hirsutism, particularly if blood sugar levels are well managed, my periods are regular and I am not overweight. In the past I used the birth control pill for 7 years. I got off, had my two kids, had a chin hair here and there, but now, 2.5 years later after having my second child, I have a full-blown highly undesired situation happening on my chin and around a little the nipples. It’s been at least a year and it’s only getting worse. I’ve used a CGM for several months for the sake of research and investigation, and my blood sugar levels appear very well managed. I don’t drink alcohol or coffee, nor do I smoke. I have no known health conditions. But I’m stressed and don’t sleep super well. When I tested a cycle mapping of my hormones (Dutch test), my testosterone, estrogen and progesterone levels were fine BUT my adrenal glands might just hate me. Both free cortisol and cortisone were VERY low (possible due to a prolonged period of stress) while Etiocholanolone & Androsterone were both super high. I have no cysts on my ovaries and my periods are quite regular so I don’t feel like it would be PCOS either. Please please please… help a sister out! Thank you for all that you do.
