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:
MacKenzie: Suffering with candida and am planning on doing your protocol with some supplements from my functional med doctor. What is the diet you recommend? I couldn't find a podcast that went into detail with this.
Gaby: Hello I am a 44 year old female who lives in Perth Western AustraliaFor the past few years, my blood test results have shown a positive thyroid antibodies :a TSH reading of 4.68 in 2019, 4.22 in 2020, similar reading recent blood test last week . Subclinical hypothyroidism antithyroid peroxidase reading 226 IU/ml. My GP has told me I have Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, but its not too significant tot commence thyroxine, although he feels that I will have to in the future.Im wondering if this can be corrected naturally. Eg supplements, dietary adjustment etc. I have been taking Thompson’s kelp supplement for the past 3 months. I'm not sure if this has been beneficial.Regards Gaby
Michelle: Hi Dr. Cabral,I appreciate your podcast so much. It has been instrumental in helping me, especially the mindset and motivation mondays, as I suffer from anxiety and depression.I am 35, vegan (recently tested, no deficiencies), COM-T met/met, with chronicle sinusitis since I was young. I also have alopecia areata, eczema, have been in several car accidents and have had to process the death of both of my parents in the last decade. Recently I have started intranasal corticosteroids, which do help but I know this is not a sustainable situation. I am also having a really hard time emotionally since stopping depo provera, so I got prescribed Busiprone and Hydroxyz. I also listened to your podcasts on seed cycling and started a month ago. My question is, what is the best way to undo mental and physical trauma in your body? I have thought about acupuncture and Rolfing especially. I can’t help but feel that my body is responding to the trauma I have experienced. Also I would like to know your opinion in inherited trauma, as my mother was a survivor of abuse and my father survived the dustbowl, imprisonment and many other traumatic life events. Thanks for all you do!
Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral:)I’ve listened to your podcasts about the perfect breakfast and heard on so many episodes what you do for your first meal (smoothie & sometimes oatmeal) but I don’t have the time to make the smoothie in the morning because I work for the family I live with and when they come downstairs my work starts but before that I don’t want to wake them up with sounds of the blender, hehe.. so after my lemon water I just eat mono meals of fruit until lunch which is usually quite late (sometimes later than 3pm) which makes me feel quite run down considering I’m predominantly a vata.. and also my gut isn’t ok yet, so I probably shouldn’t consume that much fruit. Any suggestions on what and how I should eat? Also, when to take which supplements, with meals or away from them, which can go together and which should be taken apart from each other? I’ve heard Ester C should be consumed on its own but with a meal that doesn’t contain fruit, Magnesium should also be taken on its own one hour before bedtime, but now I’ve heard it should be taken together with Zinc for better absorption.. when to take vitamin D during the day? All this contradicting information is so confusing so your help means A LOT!! Thank you so much & never change because you’re a light at the end of the tunnel
Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral.Have you ever heard about the myer briggs personality type test?If so what’s your opinion about it?And if you have completed it, maybe you could reveal your result ;-)!Thanks for everything doc!
David: Why is vitamin B12 so widely recommended by doctors and health practitioners, but not a B Complex? Is it because B12 deficiency is so much more severe than deficiencies in B3, B5, B6, etc.?
