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!
Ryan: Hi Dr. Cabral, I have been using olive oil as my main fat source for a few months now and from what I can tell it’s been going great. I am a 30 year old competitive bodybuilder currently in my off season so my calories are high. I am 6’ and currently weigh 230. I track my macros every day and usually end up with around 4500 calories. My fat intake is higher than most bodybuilders do which is around 150 grams a day. My carbs are usually around 450 and protein is around 275. My friend and roommate just died at 26 of what looks like a heart attack and he was a big body builder as well. This has opened my eyes a lot and I want to do things as healthy as I can. My body seems to be handling the quantity of olive oil but I just want to be sure. If I had to guess it is around 10 table spoons spread out the day. Thank you for your time and I love this podcast!
Stephanie: Hi Dr. Cabral. I am writing in about my 12-year-old son who frequently gets canker sores. I have listened to some of your past podcasts regarding canker sores and am still unsure of what to do with him. His dr has had him on 30mg of zinc and b6 daily for the past couple years bc of pyrolles disorder. I also supplement him with 2000mg of d3 daily and b12 every other day. About 2x a week I have him taking 500 mg of L-lysine and he’s still getting the canker sores. We did the OAT test and parasite test a year ago and everything looked good. Wondering what you would suggest trying next! Thanks
Marlene: Hey Doc! What would your recommendations be for someone with high testosterone (no PCOS)?
Simon: Hi Dr Cabral, I have started drinking a large glass of water with 1/4 tsp celtic sea salt as soon as I wake up in the morning however haven't been including lemon juice for a number of reasons (including logistics and not wanting to break my fast as I don't have my shake for a few hours later to meet my 13hr fast). Is is beneficial having celtic sea salt on its own or by missing the potassium in lemon juice will I be upsetting my electrolyte balance longer term?
Maegan: Hi, Dr. Cabral! Thank you for all you do. I have learned so much and plan on continuing my education through your classes. My question is about my 7 year old son. His gastroenterologist thinks that he might have Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. All I have found on this is that there is no known cause. What do you know? Are there labs that I could run for him? I can’t believe it accept that there isn’t a cause or some sort of treatment for it. Thank you.
Robert: Hey Dr, absolutely LOVE your work. I am trying to work on my histamine issues in various different ways. Staying away from foods high in histamines, taking my DNS, balanced zinc, Omega, vitamin D and B complex every day. I've done numerous detoxes and the CBO + the CBO finisher, etc. I've done the parasite protocol as well as the heavy metal detox. It doesn't seem like it's getting better which is very frustrating. I still react massively! I can't even have a little piece of dark chocolate or avocado without breaking out or scratching myself all night. My questions are: 1. I know you had massive histamine issues as when you were younger, how long did it take you to heal? 2. Does exercise increase histamines? Every time I workout I get more itchiness on my skin! 3. I am 23 now, when I was younger I didn't have any histamine issue whatsoever. How come I suddenly got it?
