HouseCall: Plaque Build Up, High Blood Pressure, Contraception, Chia Seeds, Circulation
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:
Donna: Dr. Cabral thank you for the excellent service you provide. I am an active 68-year-old female. My only medication has been Omeprazole for GERD and Barrett’s Esophagus which my Gastro has prescribed for 15 years. Would love to get off this but haven’t found a way. I completed your 2-week Detox and continue to use DNS, Digestive Enzymes, and Probiotics. History of testing/lab works for 2016-2017. First, my Total cholesterol has been high for about 15 years since I had a hysterectomy and went through menopause with a 12 lb weight gain – I rejected statins. February 2016 had micronutrient testing and Cardio-Metabolic Test through SpectraCel. High cholesterol with dense cholesterol particles showing a high risk for cardiovascular disease. August 2016 had Lifeline screening – Cholesterol total 254; but my carotid artery, peripheral arteries showed no plaque and CRP in the normal range. 2017 slowly lost 12 lbs. Second Lifeline screening in October 2017 total cholesterol drops to 180; however, my carotid artery showed slight plaque and CRP moved from normal to low risk. So now I’m concerned. I continue to eat healthy and maintain my weight at 120 – I’m about 63 inches. The only other issue I can’t clear up is a fungus toenail. What will reverse the plaque and dense cholesterol particles? Sorry, this is so long. Would be happy to make an appointment to discuss this with one of your practitioners. Thanks so much. Donna
Michael: I have high blood pressure, aside from that I am an essentially healthy 58 years old who eats a mostly whole foods plant-based diet. What tests do you recommend to determine the root cause? I have to admit I am a bit skeptical about hair analysis and have very short hair anyway so may not be able to get enough to analyze. I know Dr. Dennis Goodman recommends the Mg RBC to determine how much Mg is actually making it to the red blood cells. What other steps/protocols/products do you recommend to lower my BP? Should they be used without testing first? Thank you!
Mel: Hi, love your work!! What are your recommendations for baby’s first foods…..conventional advice is fortified cereal, not real food? In addition, if breastfeeding is hot possible (mum returning to work) which formula would you prescribe ( dairy-free?), Also what do you recommend for contraception eg following having a baby I am not sure what is the healthiest option after being on pill for 13 years and hearing mixed messages about copper IUDs. Where do you point women to get the best information? Thanks for your wisdom!
Melissa: I just found you thru the essential oil revolution. Love your podcast! My question is: I have always taken plant-based omega3s thru chia. I also follow Dr. Stephen Gundry. He has put chia on his “do not eat” list. What are your thoughts? I am very confused. thank you!
Katarina: My mom, who’s in her mid-50s, was recently diagnosed with scleroderma and suffers from raynauds and arthritis. Doctors said that she has caught it early (hasn’t spread to other areas – just fingers/hands) but I’m wondering if you had any tips for lessening her symptoms and inflammation? I would rather her go the natural route and halt the progression of this if possible. Thank you so much – I love your podcast!
Meg: Hello, is there a Canadian functional medical doctor that you recommend? with the exchange these test and one on one will get a bit too expensive…thanks for your time : )
