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!
Simon: Hi Dr Cabral, I have a quick question on sugar vs non-caloric sweeteners such as xylitol, erythritol and mannitol. I mostly eat a very healthy Mediterranean diet however sweets are my guilty pleasure! I try not too eat too much sugar and avoid artificial sweeteners at all cost, so lately I’ve been buying some ice cream and chocolate sweetened with xylitol and erythritol assuming this would be ‘better for me’, but deep down I’m wondering whether a bit of sugar would actually be better than these additives. I’ve listened to your podcasts on natural non-nutritive sweeteners but never heard you directly compare them to sugar and say which would be a healthier choice. For context I’m fit and healthy with good insulin sensitivity but have suffered from IBS-D in the past. Thanks!
Luke: I have been through quite a lot, from going to the gym 6 days a week, eating relatively balanced, happy and healthy individual to one day January 2nd 2021, massive panic attack I thought i was going to die. 2 weeks later, Fibromyalgia symptoms, then Chronic Fatigue, then burning sensations all over my body, then balance issues, then brain fog got so bad I didn’t even recognize who I was. I ended up with 30 plus chronic symptoms. I found functional medicine and I have healed 20 of the 30 symptoms I was experiencing but some still remain. I am a strong believer that EBV was the main cause for all of this. My remaining symptoms are (new symptom) very warm sensation, feels like someone poured warm milk down the left side of my leg, calf mainly but also my arm and sometimes my head. ER said these warm sensations are nothing to worry about and go home. Ectopic beats, could this be EBV or the parasite, I did a 6 month parasite protocol Still have Blastocystis hominis. But because I got 80% better, was it really ever the parasite as a lot of people I spoke to said it is super bad. But I could never get rid of it with taking very targeted supplements like everything in your parasite protocol and also a 10 day course of a compounded anti parasitic antibiotic. I feel my heart beat generally all over my body, very heavy at times especially when I do something active, I think the main issue is that I can feel it. I’ve been through 2 cardioligist and they say everything is normal and fine and benign ectopics. This is the main issue I want to get rid of. Still fatigue and bodily sensations remain too. I WAS 80 percent better, but now about 50% better. Surely after 12 months of clean eating, protocols left right and centre, targeted supplements to go along with my results, I would be feeling the needle move forward and not backwards. What am I missing here? Thank you Dr Cabral
Joy: Hello Dr Cabral, my question/concern is related to pancreatic insufficiency. After years of being treated for CBO then SIBO, plus ongoing treatment for past trauma and still no improvement, actually feeling worse with more bloating and gas my gastroenterologist did more stool testing. The results showed pancreatic insufficiency. I am told the only way to treat this is by taking the prescription digestive enzymes. I was also told just take the enzymes and I’ll be fine, that I should be able to eat what I want. I have been taking the enzymes for over a month now and still experiencing bloating and gas, although much better than before taking them. Are taking the enzymes the only answer? There must be other things I can do I support my system? Thank you for your help! Thank you for all you do!
Joan: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m addicted to your podcasts. 🙂 Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us for free!! My question: I know you said something to the effect that anything that’s wrong with the body can be fixed or reversed, but does that pertain to mental issues as well? I’m 57 and have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I’ve been taking SSRIs for 30 years. I’m worried that there will be poor long-term side effects. I’m also afraid to wean off them because I’ve tried that and it wasn’t pretty. Thank you for your help! Joan
Thomas: What would you do about a high AG ratio? My Albumin has been high for two years in a row, and this year my globalin level got closer to the bottom of the range triggering a high A/G ratio. I do the quarterly Dr. Cabral detox and typically add in the blueberries and sweet potatoes day 3 since I’m apt to losing weight. You are the GOAT – thank you for leading the way to better health around the world!
