Check out today’s questions:
Cameron: Hi Dr. Cabral, my name is Cameron, I’m a 42-year-old male from Melbourne, Australia. I discovered your podcast a few months ago, after searching for answers to my medical issues, and since then I’ve been hooked. You’ve opened my eyes to the fascinating world of functional medicine, so thank you! My reason for writing is for advice on my Menieres disease that I was diagnosed with about three years ago, after a couple of severe vertigo episodes, along with tinnitus and hearing loss in my right ear. I have seen several ENT specialists and had an MRI which came up clear and done various tests to help confirm the diagnosis. As a result, I’ve been put on a low sodium diet, been prescribed Serc (betahistine) and a diuretic pill, and been told to also reduce caffeine, alcohol, and stress. I’ve also tried Ginko Biloba, and several different vitamins. The only medication that has noticeably helped is 2mg Valium pills, taken only when symptoms flare. After more sporadic episodes in the last year, usually lasting for a burst of a few weeks at a time, I had a steroid injection into my inner ear, which appears to have stopped the vestibular problems at least for now, however, the hearing problems and tinnitus remain. Hoping to find more help, and after hearing your podcasts, I started seeing a naturopath, who also used to be a pharmacist. She suggested an IGG food sensitivity test, which came back showing a strong sensitivity to egg and dairy. Up until then I loved eggs, and consumed whey protein powder on a regular basis around weight training. I’m currently on a moderate detox, and going to the gym more often to try to help with blood flow. I’d love to hear your thoughts on Menieres disease, and any suggestions as to what else you think could help me. It is a miserable condition, which I would do anything to get rid of. Once again, thanks so much for all you do, you’re an inspiration, and I’m very glad I discovered your podcast. Regards, Cameron
Judy: Consumer Reports did another testing for lead found in popular protein powders. It was particularly high in vegan proteins which are ones I would be more inclined to use, so I am very concerned. I am currently using the Cabral Daily Nutritional Support Powder which happens to be vegan as well. Is your product tested for heavy metals, and if so, what were the results of the test? I appreciate what you do to help support our health and I was hoping that as you continue to make enhancements to your other product lines, I would love to see more vegan friendly protocols.
Stacey: Hi Doc, I would love to know what your West coast book tour stops are. Would you be able to give me the locations in Los Angeles/Santa Monica if these are on your stops?
Alex: Hello, I’m a loyal customer (completed DCD, using daily Cabral supplements, completed sleep hormone testing and sleep protocol) and enjoy listening to podcasts. My question is about varicose veins (not spider veins but deeper veins). I have very big, bulging veins on one leg and a less severe case on the other. They first appeared over 30 years ago after my 1st pregnancy. 8 years ago I had a laser closure procedure that was not successful as it never repaired my veins and they continue to be very enlarged. Here are my 2 questions:- what would you recommend for treating or preventing further development of varicose vein? – I’m doing spin classes 2 – 3 times a week. Can that contribute to the enlarged veins? Should I avoid this type of exercise? And what is recommended? Thank you!
Jenny: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’ve recently had my annual pap smear and have been diagnosed with high-risk HPV, without abnormal cells. Could you let me know what’s the best way to get rid of the virus as fast as possible? Which of your supplements would you recommend? I’d like to add that I eat a very healthy, mostly plant-based, diet and supplement with Vitamin C, Zinc, Selenium, Magnesium, B-12, and Vitamine D. I also drink green juices daily and use superfoods like chlorella, spirulina, maca, Ashwagandha, etc. But I would love to hear your suggestions on what more I could do, as I value your opinion more than my doctor’s. Very much looking forward to your feedback!
Susanna: Dear Dr. Cabral, I listen to your podcast every single day, and it has changed my life! I did your Candida protocol, and finally found relief after years of gut issues. Thank you for that! Now I have a question about a different health issue: I’m 41 and have been dealing with PCOS for 10 years now. I’ve managed to keep it under control with healthy diet and supplementation, but after 3 years of having it back, my period went missing again.. 🙁 Which supplements/protocols do you recommend for balancing the female hormones, and hopefully getting my period back? Thank you for everything, you’re my hero! 🙂
Alana: Hi there… I see you offer detox etc, however, some people’s reviews stated they work with you on a program. Do you offer online services, like meal plans and workout plans together? I live in Canada and was wondering if I could work with you In order to lose about 15 pounds. I’m a 41-year-old female and would love your help!
Yasmine: Hello Dr. Cabral, I love eating smoothie bowls for breakfast. I usually add plant milk, vegan protein, avocado, greens, nuts, seeds and superfoods to it, and it’s an easy way to get all my nutrients in. I know you’re a big fan of smoothies for breakfast, so you are the perfect person to ask: is blending the foods as healthy as eating them whole? Does it make nutrients more or less absorbable or effective? Is blended fiber (in flax seeds for example) still as good for regularity as the whole ones? Thank you very much for your answer!
Clemens: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for everything! You’ve been a tremendous help. Now, my problem is my calves. They’re kind of bulky anyway but by the end of the day more often than not they are just so swollen. They are heavy and it makes me tired. Also, it looks really bad and my pants don’t fit anymore. For the life of me, I can’t figure out what it is. I reduced my water, carb, and dairy intake and that seems to help a little. Definitely looking forward to your food sensitivity test coming to Europe! Is there anything else I should consider? Best of wishes and thanks again Clemens
