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:
Anonymous: Hi, dr. C. I live in Europe so it’s difficult to get your DNS powder because of expensive shipping.. so my smoothies are full of berries, apples, bananas, avocado, steamed/cooked veggies (peas, broccoli, carrot, etc.) and herbs and spices.. I don’t add any extra protein powders, hopefully the veggies, especially peas provide enough? But lately I’ve been more into oatmeal with blueberries & raspberries, a mashed banana, some bee pollen and a steamed apple.. sometimes some papaya gets in there too.. then I add A LOT of hemp seeds, probably at least 3 heaping tablespoons of it – is that too much & is it enough in terms of protein intake? I have a huge bowl of it, mostly it’s the fruit and hempseeds with just a little bit of oatmeal.. But I don’t think that breakfast keeps me full for long (neither does the smoothie) and after I get hungry, it’s so fast that I start shaking & need to eat something straight away.. I even got hot flashes and dizzy two weeks ago instead of just getting hungry.. What am I doing wrong and how would you correct it? I guess it also has something to do with me not eating breakfast soon after I wake up? I drink a litre of lemon water (is that too much ?) and then do some tinctures so it takes me a while before I get to eat breakfast.. Thank you so much for your help, have a great day
Anonymous: Hello… I’ve been listening to your podcasts and wondering, what is the best way to eat fruit and when? I find it a bit confusing… Should it be before anything else or does that spike your blood sugar? If protein should be a part of every meal, but fruit eaten on its own… doesn’t make sense? In a smoothie it can be mixed with everything else, but what if you just enjoy eating a lot of fruit on its own? What time of the day, when, considering other meals, etc..? Thank you
Alexandra: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m an IHP Level 2 and very grateful for all the work you’ve done and the information you’ve provided. I’ve had a lot of equilife lab testing done. I’ve come back high in heavy metals – mercury (0.110) and aluminum (0.79). I’ve gone through a heavy metal detox and am actively continuing to detox through sauna and Epsom salt baths. My concern is that I’m a 28 y.o. female and have very bad pelvic pain that used to occur only before menstruation. It now occurs at other times of the month and has become quite limiting. I’ve been referred to a GYN surgeon who would like me to have exploratory surgery to address possible endometriosis. I know there must be another natural way to address the root cause of this. I prefer to avoid surgery. I would love any recommendations you have.
Colleen: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions. Every time you do, it helps me in some way no matter the subject, and I’m sure the same is true for many others as well. I had a question about walking after a meal. If someone has weak digestion, would it be better to walk after eating or to rest and let the blood flow to the stomach? I’d think it’d be best to rest, but everywhere I turn, it seems the advice is that the best thing to do is walk after a meal to help with digestion. If so, how long should someone wait after a meal to go for a walk without getting out of the relaxed PNS state. (On ep. 1639 you mentioned 10-20 mins after a meal, just checking if that still applies if you have very weak digestion). Thank you again, hope this makes sense.
Ali: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am currently in the process of becoming IHP level 1 & 2 certified and am so grateful for all the resources and education you provide through these courses. After learning about all the conditions and disorders we are able to help with diet, nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle changes, I was wondering if you have done any research on Narcolepsy and natural alternatives that could help. I am 25 years old and was diagnosed with Narcolepsy when I was 20. I am on the highest dosage of stimulants you can be just to get through the day feeling ‘normal’. I am terrified of the long term effects this will have myself and others with Narcolepsy. Thanks in advance for even answering this question, have a wonderful rest of your week!
