Check out today’s questions:
Sam: Hello Dr. Cabral – cheers to you and thank you for your work! What a breath of fresh air, I wish everyone had access to your practice! My situation seems to be a perfect storm of some topics you’ve covered in past. I’ll try to be brief. I typically test as tridoshic. I’m a 5’8 female with a small frame and thin joints, but not a straight/flat frame (natural hourglass figure). I’m calm and balanced – not particularly energetic, nor sluggish. I was effortlessly thin/curvy despite not exercising…until I met candies and junk food in my late teens. For the next 15 years, I slowly packed on about 30 pounds. My friend wanted to go keto and needed a support group, and since I struggle so much with sugar addiction, I started keto with her. Within 1 month of keto, I lost my menstrual cycle. I’ve had amenorrhea for 10 months now, despite reintroducing squash/fruit/root carbohydrates. I’m gaining weight again and I’m having trouble controlling my fruit intake (sugar addiction, still in full force!). With a damaged metabolism (new thyroid condition!) and no period, I have no idea what to do anymore. Doctors want to put me on HRT. I know in my heart that SO MANY women have done this to themselves with keto, so I wanted to submit this for all the ladies out there. Thank you for your wisdom, Sam PS: Can someone please email me when this question gets answered on the podcast? I’m still catching up with the older ones so I fear I might miss it. Thank you!
Erich: I was reviewing a video that you did with Thomas DeLauer and you talked about different metabolisms for different bodies and that each body has its own challenges and strengths. You mentioned taking some kind of test to know this better. I have a friend who is CONVINCED that he has metabolic issues and i was wondering what this test might be and who he might be able to reach out to in the Dallas TX area to have this test. Any advice you could provide would be most appreciated. Erich
Alex: Hello. Love all the information you share!! I’m a 52-year-old male, 5′ 10″, 155 pounds, 14% b.f. and have been tested and have low T. I am able to fall asleep easily at night but always wake up to use the facilities during the night and then often have difficulty falling asleep again. I work out 4-5 days a week but lately my workouts have not been as intense. I have been working out consistently for a long time but with very slow progress and I would like to put on another 5-10 pounds of muscle and get down to 10% b.f.. I will be ordering your Detox but wonder if it is the first thing I should do or should I do more testing before or do something else? Thank you again for all you do!! Alex
Lauren: Hi Dr. Cabral. My question for you is that I recently went and had my first physical in years. I took your advice from a podcast a few months back recommending blood tests. I have been suffering from food allergies and fatigue, depression/anxiety, and in my early 20’s rapid weight gain that I still haven’t lost for years. My doctors gave me my results the other day and everything was good and on the lower side, however on my organic acids test a few of them came back lower than the normal range. She informed me that she couldn’t explain the results of the test because though I had requested it she didn’t know enough and offered to refer me to an Endocrinologist. I’m also going to see an allergist because she ran a basic blood work allergy panel and I came back negative, but in 2013 I was positive for a wide array of food and environmental allergies. So I guess what I’m asking is being that I am below normal range should I go to the Endocrinologist Or is it nothing to worry about? I really appreciate your time. Your podcasts are so informative and motivational.
Michael: Can the benefits of the program still be achieved if you do not want to lose any weight?
Carlos: Hi doctor Cabral. I was diagnosed with h pylori in January and was doing triple therapy. Ever since then the symptoms have still been ongoing so I wanna try your healthy belly option. What is the recommended dose for those? My physician wants to put me on triple therapy again and that’s my last resort as the side effects I experienced last time were horrendous. As always keep up the great work. Thank you for your time.
Rebekah: Hi doctor! First, Thanks for all your hard work. I’m an avid podcast listener and LOVE learning about any and everything related to biology and functional medicine! I recently learned that certain microbes are more prone than others to “build” biofilms, h.pylori being one of them, which peaked my interest as I have family members who have been diagnosed with it and one that has dyspepsia but blood, breath, and biopsy are negative for h.pylori How reliable are biopsies of stomach tissue for finding Pylori And how is a stool test able to find waste markers of h.pylori if it were protected by a biofilm?
Jenny: Dr. Cabral, Thank you for your podcast and all the information you share to so many people. My husband who is 27 has type 1 diabetes and was diagnosed when he was 11. I have done some research and I have seen different articles about the old BCG TB vaccine that can cause the pancreas to begin to function again. There is also a new study on a technique that reprograms human skin cells into pancreatic beta cells that secrete insulin when exposed to glucose. They did a study on this with mice with diabetes and the beta cells functioned properly in regulating blood sugar levels, but one of the mice ended up with tumors due to cell reprogramming. My question is what your thoughts are on these studies and your recommendation on the best way to live with type 1 diabetes? Do you think it is possible to make a basically “dead pancreas” function again through nutrition and a healthy lifestyle? Type 1 is usually seen as something that cannot be cured and I don’t want to accept that as an answer until all other options have been exhausted. Thank you so much for all you do, Jenny
