HouseCall: Altitude Sickness, Candida Glabrata, Male Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Thinning Hair, Cancer & Thyroid, Higher Education, Thinning Skin
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!
Ashley: First off thanks for all of the amazing podcasts, I’m fairly new to them but you’re the only podcast I listen to on a regular basis because the information is so applicable to not only my life but the lives of people around me! Quick question, I’m from Indiana and recently went on a snowboarding trip to Keystone, CO. The second day I noticed a headache that Dr. Google led me to believe was a tension headache and my resting heart rate was in the hundreds, I believe I was experiencing issues with the altitude and it seemed to get worse until we boarded the plane to head home. I believe my Indiana lungs/heart couldn’t handle the elevation. I don’t plan on giving up traveling to these high elevations, is there any way to prepare my body for another high altitude trip? Normal resting HR in the ’60s, drink recommend fl. oz. of water per day if not more, hot yoga recently started, lift 3x a week, no caffeine drinks ever…much room for improvement though! Thanks for everything! 🙂
Merrin: Hi, I have been battling a mild candida glabrata vaginal infection for 12 months. I’ve tried the candida diet and boric acid but nothing has worked. I’m about to start a 5-week course of amphotericin cream and am wondering if you have experience in helping women specifically with candida glabrata (non-albicans)? I’m in Australia, so do you do skype consults and how do I access any necessary supplements? BTW – I love your podcasts!
Don: DR. Cabral, For the last 7 to 8 years I’ve been dealing with what my Urologists calls pelvic floor dysfunction. Meaning when I eat certain foods it causes my bladder to spasm which pushes on my pelvic floor tightening the muscles, making me feel like I need to use the bathroom more often. The worst time for this is of course at night. Often this can be severe enough to cause some burning or stinging at the end of my penis. I first noticed this after eating sweet fruits like pineapple, mangos, spotted bananas, and citrus fruits especially lemons. But the past couple of years it has progressed to foods like sweet potatoes, cooked carrots and occasionally squash. My urologist said the only thing that I can do is eliminate the trigger foods, but the list keeps getting longer. Also, I’ve noticed stress and any type of single-leg exercises (like lunges) can aggravate this issue as well. Things I have tried; deep breathing, meditation, Kegels, an anti-anxiety medication, and yoga, none of which seemed to help. Is this a pelvic floor issue; meaning my pelvic floor needs to be stretched or strengthened? Or do you think it is something internal going on that I need to get taken care of? I want to make sure I am making good choices financially to get this handled, but I’m not sure if I should run one of your lab tests first or just go straight to the Urinary Protocol, or maybe it is something else like Candida Overgrowth. P.S. Love the show, I originally heard you on Renegade radio with Jason Ferruggia. I’m so glad I found you. Thanks, Don
Emily: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’m a 26 years old female experiencing thinning of hair and hair loss. I have a section that is becoming bald. I have been on birth control pills for 10 years. No family history of hair loss. Relatively healthy. Not stressed out. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help
Gail: Hi Dr Cabral, Love your podcasts, they have given me so much inspiration to get well.Ten years ago I had breast cancer.Lumpectomy,6months of chemotherapy,12 weeks radiation, steroids etc followed by 5 years of follow-up meds,etc. My thyroid went crazy, been on thyroxine ever since.I would appreciate your advice on a place to start on my way back to health. Cheers Gail
Celeste: Hello Dr. Cabral, Much like you, my introduction to natural healing and functional medicine began after I had an ailment that medicine couldn’t solve. The healing I saw my body do for itself was so life changing that I decided to change my entire college path to try and leverage schooling to educate others about our body’s natural ability to heal itself. I am about to graduate from college with a basic Health Science degree. I was just wondering what advice you had on my next steps? I want to go to graduate school eventually. I have been going back and forth between some type of Nutrition degree, PT school, or….? I am at a loss for where to go. My ideal job would be a health coach or something along those lines. Do you have any recommendations for a graduate program or certificate program I can begin to look into for the upcoming few years? Thank you!
Carla: Hi Dr. Cabral, Is there a way to naturally restore thinning skin? I’m 36 and was treating what I think are flat warts on the back of my hands with tea tree oil, and while it hasn’t seemed to do much for warts it’s significantly thinned my skin. It looks kind of like smooth wrinkled tissue paper and gets dry very easily and sore if I wash my hands a lot. I work with my hands which doesn’t help, but I’ve been putting sesame, castor, and coconut oils on at night and whenever I can, but they haven’t really done much. Is there anything else I can do? Thanks very much! Carla
