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!
Suayda: Hi, Dr. Cabral appreciate all you do. I’ll try to make this concise. I experienced tubulointerstitial nephritis with uveitis in January 2021. My kidneys failed suddenly. The prognosis is good in that my renal function will return. I went from 15% function to 42% currently. However, the rate of improvement has started to slow down recently. I have been more active, eating much better and also using herbs/supplements. My questions are: - could this be caused by toxicity of some kind? Ie mold, heavy metals or parasites? Maybe all the above? My apartment here and the UK in general has a lot of mold. My furniture is also older and most likely has lots of VOCs. I feel like my environment is making me sick and preventing healing. - Are any of the following herbs harmful? I’ve tried to research abundantly and have felt improvement with the following either daily or a few times a week: chanca piedra, he shou wu, dandelion extract, ginko biloba extract - Same question for these supplements: phosphatydil choline, ashwagandha (for my adrenals), magnesium, vitamin d (last test showed I’m at 69) - Lastly, is there anything else I can do to restore and strengthen my kidneys and prevent this from happening again.
Kristina: Hi Dr.Cabral, I have a question about chronic yeast infections and candida. After doing lots of research I think I have candida overgrowth - as well as getting thrush (x1 a month) I also have fatigue, brain fog, spots on face and sometimes a little on neck and chest. Other symptoms are toe fungus and also my hair has been shredding. It has been so frustrating as the medical doctors have no answers for me! I have listened to your previous podcasts on candida and thrush and I know you mention Boric acid. I was wondering if the Candida and Bacterial Optimizer Protocol is what I should get? Should I use the Boric Acid as well alongside the protocol or will the protocol tackle it all at the same time and help me get rid of candida for good? Thank you so much!! I really appreciate all your advice.
Tina: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thanks so much for everything that you do! I was wondering if you can advise on the best foods, supplements or herbs to take to prevent muscle pain after exercise and to optimise results. My partner always gets sore muscles and I was wondering if there is anything he can to prevent that. I heard magnesium is beneficial but any advice would be much appreciated. Best things to consume before and after exercise? Thank you!
John: Hi Dr. Cabral - I have an issue with zinc supplementation. Zinc gives me abdominal cramping and mild diarrhea. I've experienced it across multiple brands and multiple forms of zinc, including the zinc in Healthy Gut Support. I am going to start the CBO protocol soon, and I noticed month three has a notable amount of zinc in the Healthy Belly supplement, and I'm concerned I won't be able to take it. Even when I take zinc with a meal, I notice the symptoms to some degree, so I avoid supplements with zinc all together. Do you have a recommendation on how I can accommodate Healthy Belly in the CBO protocol and Healthy Gut Support later on? Also, can you please share why you think I may have such a strong reaction to supplements that contain zinc? I saw an article tying it stomach acid issues which I believe I have. I tried HCL, but it causes abdominal pain and burning. Also, citrus foods give me acid reflux. Do these issues and my inability to tolerate zinc have anything in common? Thanks for your time, and the products you've created. They've improved my health, and I'll be a customer for life.
Lorena: Hey Doc! What are your thoughts on Zeolite? I’ve been hearing incredible things about it!
Melissa: We have a Berkey water filtration system and my son brings gallon glass bottle to fill for his apartment. I recently saw Berkey sells Biofilm drops which are formulated to store and maintain water for up to five years. I was curious if you had any thoughts about using this to store water? They also claim the drops extend the time-frame between cleanings when added to the upper chamber. I am still working through your Podcasts (have for several years) and love learning from you! I could not find a Podcast about the Berkey Biofilm drops and asked in the support group on Facebook with no luck! Thank you for all you do and all your inspiration.
