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:
Bec: Hey Stephen! I have a 5 week old little girl and I was wondering if it is safe to use my Joovv red light panel on her to reset her circadian rhythm and help her build her melatonin? If so what time of day would be best and for how long? And if not, what age would it be safe for her to start using it?
Angela: My mother is 83 years old and suffering from Parkenson’s. She is on Levo/Cabidopa, Aspirin, Calcium, Vit D3 (but only 2000 iu). She weighs about 135 lbs so I believe she needs more Vit D3. She is also on iron and Modafinil. I believe the Modafinil is to help with her daytime sleepiness. She struggles with drinking enough water and gets constipated (probably from the iron too) and frequent UTIs as well. She fell for the 2nd time and broke her hip again so she is wheel chair bound, and movement is very minimal. All in all she is a hot mess and it’s really hard to watch her decline this way. What would you suggest for someone that age and at that level of fragility?
Ryan: Hello Doc, Wanted to see if you could briefly explain the connection or potential of albumin binding to testosterone and lowering the free levels of test in the body. My albumin has chronically been about a 5 or 5.1. My total testosterone has always been high, but my free doesn’t seem optimal. I’m 31 and just looking to see what I can do naturally. I’m an IHP 2 so I understand the basics of increasing testosterone naturally. But wanted to hear your thoughts on albumin and testosterone connection, how can we lower albumin levels to a better range. Lower protein? Lower sodium? Any genetic issues I should look into? Liver or kidney? Etc. Thanks!
Emily: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am wondering if you could share your thoughts on sorbitol intolerance, how to test for it, and how to treat it? I have been diagnosed with IBS in the past (which was an unhelpful diagnosis at best) and have recently been wondering if I may snuggle with sorbitol intolerance as well, which I have not been tested for. My thinking about this stems from the intense gas, bloating, diarrhea, and abdominal discomfort I have been struggling with daily lately. These symptoms are not new for me, however, I have noticed they are more intense and frequent lately, and am wondering if this is connected to my increased sorbitol consumption over the summer from stone fruits (peaches, plums, nectarines…).
Thank you for your work! I am saving up now to take Levels 1&2 IHP:)
Sara: Hi there, I love your podcast – thank you for your work! Does fasting help the clean up of damage from chronic alcohol abuse on the body and brain? Thank you! Sara
Linden: Hi there! I would love any help I can get for lowering Candida while living in mold. Unfortunately I have no other option but to be in this environment for a few more months, but I’m dealing with pretty intense Candida and I know mold/mycotoxins can really fuel it’s overgrowth. Any recommendations on a diet approach to keeping it as low as possible & other ways to support my body while I live here? Thank you so much!!
