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!
Whitney: Hi Dr. Cabral, My question is regarding my zinc to copper ratios. On the HTMA test my zinc was wildly off the charts at 335, and copper was at 1.5. Zn/ Cu ratio is 223.33. I double tested to be sure I got a good sample and it’s legit. I also then tested my blood serum levels and they were in normal range (zinc 87 / copper 103). Any idea what is going on and if/how I should take copper alone and avoid zinc ? I do have these white hairs coming in that are very course which is strange for my genetics (I’m 35 year old female, brunette). I’m also a little hypothyroid, cold hands and feet. The most obvious culprit to me is that I wear mineral (zinc based) sunscreen daily (I work outside). All the sunscreens I use claim to be non nano zinc but maybe they are still absorbing? Thanks SO much!!!!
Joyce: Hi! I am waiting to receive my 21 day detox kit and my question is about the hours I should be “eating” on days 3-7. I get up usually around 8am so my first shake will be at 9am, lunch at 12:30pm, 2nd shake at 4pm and dinner at 7:30pm. The problem is that 7:30pm is too late for me to eat. Is it possible to modify these times so that I am not eating dinner at 7:30? Can I interchange the 4pm shake with the 7:30pm dinner? Please help before I get started on this program. I am looking forward to feeling better! Thank you, Joyce
Kelsie: Hi Dr Cabral. Recently I have had some constipation with very large stool. It ends up causing bleeding and is very painful to pass. I’ve tried upping fiber and it doesn’t help. Any tips?
Jillian: My question is regarding my almost 2.5 yr old daughter. On and off since birth she has slept with her mouth open. This has gotten worse to where she sleeps with it open almost always for about 6 months now. She snores which interrupts her sleep and during the day seems to keep her mouth open while playing/running. Her voice is also a bit nasally. Despite this she does not get sick often but when she does get a cold the extreme mucus seems to last a month or more. Her doctor recommended she take Zyrtec nightly to see if it’s an allergy issue and also recommended us for a sleep study. The Zyrtec does seem to help with the night snoring and coughing. My question is 1) are there long term affects of taking Zyrtec regularly? And 2) do you rec removing tonsils/adenoids? What do you rec for this?
Amy: Hi Dr. Cabral thank you so much for all that you do. My 15 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with macular atrophy. The doctors are suggesting that it is genetic and there is nothing that can be done to improve her condition. Also there is a possibility that her eyesight could continue to decline and she could go blind. I wanted to see what supplements you recommend that help with her eyesight. Thank you!
Alan: I have a problem that I constantly eat preventively so I never feel hungry because I’m afraid of painful hunger pains. As a child there was little food at home and I received NYC public school free lunch which has small portions or not editable leaving me hungry First, I would like the ability to eat only every 3 hours Second, do others have this issue?
