HouseCall: Right Rib Pain, 1:1 Support, Non-Hormonal Contraceptives, Explosive Lifts, Adaptogen Directions, Plant Protein, Knee Pain

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:

Sean: Hi Dr. CabralI’ve been listening to your podcasts for the last few months and I’m really loving them! I have a question for a friend of mine that’s dealing with an issue. For the past 5 years she has been experiencing a sharp pain in her right side (just below ribs) and she’s gone to a general practitioner several times to get help. They’ve done ultrasounds and X-rays and haven’t found anything that would be causing the pain. I thought I’d reach out to you on her behalf so she can figure out the issue and hopefully overcome it! Thanks! Sean 

Jennifer: Hi thereI have two questions. 1.  Is the Daily Protocol Powder appropriate for nursing mother’s to take, even though the green powder contains spirulina? I am taking an IV of antibiotics during my delivery and would like to get back on a gut healing / vitamin rich protocol as soon as possible. 2.  I suspect that my mother-in-law may have candida overgrowth and she is interested in testing with Dr. Cabral. Is it better to set up a consultation and go through the 3-month program with Dr. C or a health coach than independently order the lab? I know that she will benefit from having a tailored program with 1:1 support, and think that applying for the consulting package is better. Thank you! Jennifer

Kim: Hi Dr. Cabral, thanks for the show, love your podcast! I have 2 questions: 1) which non-hormonal contraceptives can you recommend? except condoms. what do you think about the copper spiral? 2) Is Stevia ok? Thanks a lot and best regards from Germany, Kim 

Lorenzo: Hello Dr Cabral! I am 32 and have gone through many fitness transitions over the last 15 years from distance running to power lifting to couch potato then crossfit. I’ve been listening to you for over a year and have moved to your recommendations of a full body routine 2-3 times a week and have been feeling better than ever. I would like to start incorporating more explosive lifts, just because I enjoy them. How would you include kettlebell and barbell clean and jerks and snatches in your full body routine?

Chris: Hey Doctor Cabral, my question is about adaptogens. About a week ago I started taking adapt, 2 with breakfast and 2 with dinner, to help with my healing from adrenal fatigue and balance cortisol levels. A week before that I finally was able to get really good sleep consistently, finally and be able to sleep the entire night without being woken. I figured adding hpa adapt to my regimen would give me that last kick to help calm my body. At first I felt really calmed down from it almost too calm, but it felt better than being too high energy. Cut to a week later and now my body although it doesn’t feel anxious energy, it feels a lot of energy being so that I cannot fall asleep at all at night, no matter how much melatonin I take my body literally won’t shut down. I’m curious as to why that is, I know that adaptogens are supposed to adapt to stress but going from too calm to too wired seems weird. I will also mention that I am a 26 year old pitta and I’ve tried taking a b complex prior but that makes me very jittery. Thanks!

Valerie:  Hello Dr. Cabral! Really enjoy your Podcasts and I look forward to them everyday. I switched to a Whole Foods Plant Based (WFPBD) in early March and I feel amazing! I’ve read that a women should be getting about 48g of protein per day. I try and have three 1/2 cup servings of legumes a day. I wanted to add more throughout the day. My job doesn’t allow me to sit down and have a meal so, I bring my food in small mason jars. I usually try and have a main dish ( in a hot flask) and two different kinds of vegetables in my mason jars as well as fruit. I saw a Holistic Nutritionist and she said as a WFPBD is incomplete protein, I can have as much as I want. Today I listed to a YouTube video, by Dr McDougall and he said no more than a 1 cup serving a day, as to much protein leads to calcium loss, even if your on a WFPBD. Dr. Gregor says only 3 servings a day and he states that the incomplete protein statement is invalid, as there have been no concrete studies done to prove this. I find it confusing and a lot of conflicting information. What is your views on this? How much protein should you be getting, when on a WFPBD?

Mea:  Hi Dr Cabral, I have intermittent knee pain, but my DO cannot find anything structurally wrong with my knees. This is making me think it may be an inflammation issue. After 1.5 years of this, I am ready to cut the dairy, gluten, sugar, soy, corn out of my diet but if was wondering if you have any additional recommendations. I am 30, female, no history of injuries, and my work out routine has not changed. I eat mostly whole foods aside from milk in coffee (could coffee also be part of this?). Also still battling acne since my teens. Your podcast is wonderful, thank you so much for all that you do.
