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:
Marie: Hi Dr. Cabral. Just want to start by saying thank you for offering the lab services/coaching. Brief history – I was chronically undereating (unknowingly) and hitting the gym 5-6x a week. Exhaustion set in late 2019 but I attributed it to work stress. When NYC went into lockdown in early 2020, I thought ‘great! A 2-week vacation!’ But as the weeks piled on so did the pounds. When losing the weight by cutting calories and increasing workouts didn’t work, I joined a nutrition coaching service which focuses on fueling your body not starving it. After a year and a half, I was still struggling to lose, and they recommended bloodwork. I had had the full thyroid panel in the middle of the 18 months and the numbers were fine, so I ran the equilife hormone test and found out I have low prog
Jackie: My question is this. Is the CBO protocol good to disrupt established and tough biofilms? Or is this protocol better for someone who would be using this protocol as a first round against SIBO? Has it ever been used with success on SIBO patients who had tough biofilms to break down? Finally, is there a reason why EDTA is not included in the biofilm buster formula?
Anonymous: Hi. I am so grateful to you and your team for all the information you share. You are truly changing so many people’s lives for the better! I had a question about l-glutamine. I have MCAS and i have been taking l glutamine to seal my gut and thus calm down my immune system. However, it has given me anxiety, depression and fatigue. Is this a glutamate issue? What can do to prevent the side effects? Also, I was wondering how long it took for you to resolve your food sensitivities and be able to have lectins again?
Richard: Hello Dr. Cabral, I know that you recommend 7-9 cups of fruits & veggies per day, with more coming from veggies. I get about 6 cups of fruits & 3-4 cups of veggies on a good day, sometimes even less. The problem is that I’m a vata dosha & veggies aren’t very conducive for gaining or even maintaining weight. Veggies are filling but a very low calorie food. If I eat 5-6 cups of veggies per day then I don’t have the appetite to eat other higher calorie foods that will help me increase weight. It gets even hard when I’m trying to build muscle. Is it possible that vatas need less veggies than other doshas or is that just wishful thinking? If not then do you have any suggestions for gaining/maintaining weight while getting my 5-6 cups of veggies? Thank you, really appreciate you & all you do!
Anonymous: Hello, Dr. Cabral, my question is regarding a case of painless ulcerative colitis. When I was first diagnosed with this “disease” I was experiencing all of the standard symptoms: urgency, bloody stool, fatigue etc. My initial flare was brought under control & has remained dormant since. Recently, however, I completed a few of your labs including the Gut Bacteria & Parasite Test. It revealed very high inflammatory markers. I found this troubling since I wasn’t showing any symptoms. Fast forward a few months, I completed the CBO protocol & went in for a colonoscopy. My doctor said that I had severe inflammation and needed to go on a biologic. I’m distraught, as I’m still symptom free. My question: How will I know if I am truly well if I can have severe inflammation and no symptoms? What now?
Pamela: I have been suffering from reynauds for years and I’m done . Can you tell me what best to do?? Supplements etc.
