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:
Jen: Hi Dr. C! Do you have any knowledge or history working with patients with Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia (ARVD)? I'm wondering if you have any advice on natural ways to support the body. Thank you for all you do!
Karen: Hi there Dr. Cabral and thank you for all you do! I have listened to your previous podcast on PEMF mats and appreciated the information. I don't fully understand how PEMF works but recently read that 10-15 gauss is required to stimulate adenosine receptors to reduce inflammation. The Healthy Line website for the PEMF mat you recommend states that their PEMF operates at 7.8 hertz but makes no mention of gauss. Can you explain the difference and help me to better understand what I should be looking for in a PEMF mat? Thanks a ton!
Kathy: Dear Dr. Cabral, I've run the big 5 labs and done all the protocols with Equilife to address my imbalances, so I feel really great thanks to you! I have a recent concern I cannot solve. I've danced flamenco for a couple years now and we always do intense footwork, but only recently I find that all my leg muscles feel extremely weak after only 5 minutes of work, to the point where I'm in significant pain - it's like I have no muscle strength or energy in them - and the next day I'm super sore. Up until a few months ago, I never had this weakness, pain or soreness. I do the foundational protocol level 3, and also take the cal-mag 2 - 4 caps per day (based on my HTMA results). I've tried adding creatine but with no change. Can you point me toward what can be causing this? Is it possibly a mitochondrial issue or perhaps metabolic? Thank you and I appreciate you so much! -Kathy
Pip: Hi Dr Cabral, Would love your thoughts on my questions about Multiple Sclerosis. I’ve had a search on your podcasts page but didn’t find exactly what I was after. I know that you believe that all (well most!) diseases can be prevented, so what would you say to someone who was showing multiple symptoms of MS but hadn’t been formally diagnosed yet, but the possibility of it had been mentioned. There’s obviously no cure for MS so what would you suggest if this was one of your family members in this situation? Thanks so much, I appreciate your thoughts!
Maria: Forever grateful for your knowledge ! I recently heard that baking potato (starchy foods) causes the formation of a harmful substance‘ acrylamide’, which can be carcinogenic. Apparently it is from the chemical reaction of certain sugars and the amino acid asparagine from high temp cooking. Furthermore, if you eat Baked potato it is recommended to not eat the skin, or just better to steam or boil. I’ve never heard of this before so was wondering of if you have ! Thank you
Sarah: Hi Dr Cabral, Thanks so much for providing us all with such great information. I constantly recommend your podcast, You are a superstar! I have bradycardia. My Heart rate is consistently around 55... and drops below 50 during sleep. I’m awaiting my thyroid panel blood results. I am certain that I am hypothyroid, my TSH was 3.65 and I’ve just convinced my doc to run further tests. I have had mixed information about iodine, I have listened to podcasts suggesting supplementing with iodine but after reading Dr Christiansons book ‘the thyroid reset’, he explains that there is too much iodine in the diet.. and I do feel less fatigued after reducing it. I just wondered what your thoughts were on this and also is there anything I can do to bring my heart rate up to a normal range? Thanks so much, Sarah x
