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!
Lindsey: Hello Dr. Cabral, I would love to pick your brain on a controversial Vitamin D question. I have always followed the integrative/holistic/naturopathic view on Vitamin D and the idea that low levels can be part of the chain reaction of root cause issues for many dis-eases of the body. However, I recently listened to a XXXXX podcast episode with XXXX about Vitamin D levels and supplementation that made a lot of sense even though it contradicts everything every respected Integrative doctor has ever thought about vitamin D. If you are familiar with his explanation, I’d love to hear your thoughts. If not, it’s a suggested conversation topic for a future episode vastly different than the other vit d podcasts in the past.
Lindsey: Hello again Dr. Cabral – one more question to have a conversation about. I am breastfeeding and I wonder about future autoimmune issues for my baby. If I comprehend the autoimmune theory correctly, when the gut is leaky, proteins cross the lining and the body sees them as invaders creating an autoimmune response that expresses in the weak part of your individual body. This is very simplified. Since babies are born with permeable guts, can proteins go through my milk to do this. I am specifically worried because I have MODY or Type 1.5 diabetes. Since dairy in babes can cause type 1 diabetes, if I eat dairy will that do the same through my milk for the baby? What about allergen introduction? They suggest to do the big 9 within the first year. If one is a trigger, will it create AI?
Caitlin: I will try to keep this short: How do I know if I am suffering from candida overgrowth or just have a lot of the common symptoms of it for different reasons? I have severe eczema/dermatitis on my hands. I have suffered from this for years, on and off. I am working in a restaurant again, which has worsened it, but I know that my poor gut health in the past has played a role and steroid withdrawal. have for the last year and a half took major steps to improving my health Basically, I have the skin issues, I have yeast infections sort of often, and now I am experiencing dry scalp. Could this just be a few things happening at once and because it’s winter? (I live in New York). I’m sorry for the lengthy message and understand if you can’t answer on the podcast. Thank you for all you do.
Ales: Hello Dr. Cabral. I am an Integrative Health Practitioner L2, and I have question regarding food sensitivity testing. There seems to be newer version of testing called MRT (Mediator Release Test), which unlike IgG (testing for only type III sensitivity), is testing for type IV sensitivity. They claim that when the T-cells identity a food as harmful, they release mediators such as cytokines, histamines, and prostaglandins, causing inflammatory symptoms. Since MRT apparently measures the release of mediators from WBC and these mediators are proinflammatory chemicals, which leads to chain immune reaction, wouldn’t it a much more accurate way to test for food sensitivities? Thank you for your thoughts..
Melissa: Hi Dr. Cabral – I’ve been working with a local functional medicine doctor and I found out I have 2 MTHFR gene mutations, high estrogen (testosterone and progesterone look good), high cortisol, APOE3/E4, low dopamine, high oxidative stress, AA/EPA is high, low MCHC, a marker for celiac disease, strep in my gut (no parasites) and my IgG and IgM are both very low. My FM dr is telling me to find an immunologist. I’m thankful to have all of this information but I’m feeling overwhelmed. I wanted to reach out for any specific advice you can provide with this info (nutritionally, testing, exercise, etc). Are there certain foods I shouldn’t eat with MTHFR gene mutation or high estrogen? Thank you
