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:
Kay-lee: Good morning, I have a question which could be a strange one? My son is 24 years old and has only reached my height which is 162cm and I am wondering if there is any chance that he can grow a little more? His father is 180cm. He is a fit and healthy young man the problem is that he is in the army and there are times when that extra height would be so welcome. Look forward to your reply Kind Regards Kay-lee
Grace: Hi, I’ve been an on-and-off binge eater for many years. Something has finally clicked in me over the past few weeks and I’ve been able to break that cycle. I still struggle with daily heartburn, chest pain, and bloating though. It happens mainly after I eat. I don’t know if that’s due to my many years of treating my body poorly. I’ve tried eliminating certain foods before (I follow a vegan diet) to see if that would change anything and it hasn’t. What do you recommend I should do to fix this problem? Do you recommend your 7-day detox to start fresh and give my body a restart? Or should I start taking some supplements like gut support, digestive enzymes, probiotics, etc. to help? Thank you so much for your help!
James: I have acid reflux and taking medication for it presently. When I stop the medication I get weak nausea and throw up. How do I go about getting off the medication and heal the acid reflux?
Janice: My 81-year-old mother has thyroid issues and is on meds but still doesn’t feel well. She is very foggy-headed, is always tired, and has splitting nails, thinning hair, slower gait, cold numb hands, no energy, trouble conversing, however, she is not overweight. The doctors think she may have early Parkinsons but she has no shakes and the Parkinson’s meds don’t help at all. She thinks it is all thyroid related but her thyroid #s are good with her meds so they won’t test further. Would your thyroid test help uncover potential thyroid-related issues that standard testing won’t pick up? If so – can she take it while being on thyroid meds or will the meds alter your test results?
Anna: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have been listening to your podcast for a while and have really enjoyed learning about diet and nutrition as part of a holistic, healthy lifestyle. My husband has recently heard about the “carnivore diet” from a podcast by Joe Rogan with Jordan Peterson and has gotten really interested in it. Essentially, they say you eat only meat and end up losing weight and getting rid of symptoms of allergies, anxiety, and depression. I am weary of it because my husband also has a history of heart disease in his family, especially on his dad’s side, so the thought of him eating only red meat definitely freaks me out. I wanted to ask if you have heard of this “carnivore diet” and what your thoughts on it are. I am an advocate for a well-rounded diet full of micro and macronutrients, including all different colors of food, but I also get the feeling that everybody is different, so there is no one diet that works for everyone. I’d love to hear about your thoughts on all this in a podcast. Thanks, Anna
Megan: I have had stomach problems since college and I am 34 now. I went to Scott and White in Temple and had endoscopies colonoscopies cat scans etc and nothing came up. They diagnosed me with IBS with constipation at the time. Years later I had a friend with similar issues have her gallbladder removed after it died inside of her. I had mine tested and they said it was only working at 75% and would only get worse so they removed it. Looking back I wish I wouldn’t have but that was before I started educating myself about eastern medicine. Before my gallbladder was removed I threw up a lot, especially when eating fried foods, because nothing would digest. My mother took me to the dr every time I sneezed as a child so was constantly on antibiotics which I now realize was really bad. I take probiotics and enzymes now and eat healthy 80/20. From listening to the podcast I believe something is going on with my small intestine because that’s where it hurts and I consistently am in pain and bloated which I can control somewhat with diet (juice in the morning, tea, lots of greens, etc.) and exercise and detox baths, but if I slip at all I feel terrible. I went to a lady who did biofeedback on me which is frequency-based and she said I have EBV and because of that my immune system is weak. With all that being said I know I need to have tests run I was just wanting to advise on which ones and which order and if there is any protocol I should start now or multiple protocols I should do, or just wait for the tests and the results. I have spent a lot of money on tests and supplements etc. and really would love if I can figure out what is actually wrong so that I can concentrate on it specifically instead of blindly trying different things.
Leanne: the 7-day weight loss program supportive of a vegan diet?
Alexandra: Hi there, A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with Lymes. It had since been treated with strong antibiotics but I still don’t feel 100% well. I bought your book a couple of months ago and have read it from cover to cover! I am based in London so what tests would you advise I have done & do you have any affiliates in the U.K.?
Kind regards Alexandra
Jennifer: Hi there- I take a few anti-anxiety medications and Prolixin an antipsychotic, (that I take for anxiety and PTSD,) and I’m wondering if Dr. Cabral could help me get off these medications in a healthy way that stabilizes me and reduces my anxiety naturally. Does he do things like this? The medication has also caused some weight gain and I’m looking to create overall balance and wellness in my body mind and spirit. Let me know if he’d be a good fit for what I’m looking for. Thanks, Jennifer
