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!
Chantal: Dear doctor Cabral, What is the best way to lose belly fat? I’m an active 38-year-old female, no kids, healthy weight, working out regularly, meditate, do not smoke or drink, eat whole food plant-based diet..I'm pretty much perfect, haha ;) I have muscle definition all over my body, but there’s a layer of fat over my stomach that I just can’t get rid of it. I do have some digestive issues, so when I'm bloated my belly looks huge and it makes me very self conscious. Any advice you have would be much appreciated. Thanks so much! Chantal
Lara: Hi, dr. Cabral :) I’ve tried to find it on previous episodes but with no luck, so I’m writing in on behalf of my friend.. he’s got plantar fibromitosis and he’s sometimes in a lot of pain and has been advised surgery, but doesn’t want it.. could you explain this condition a bit more, why does it occur and what would you recommend? Thank you so much for everything you do, you are absolutely amazing! Have a great day, everyone!
Jamie: Hi Dr Cabral, another quick question after thanking you again for all you & your awesome team do. I have been part of the community now for over 3 years & it has changed my life & will subsequently change my children’s lives (maybe even my teams lives once they are sick of hearing my changed diet etc!) Massive heartfelt thank you. This year I decided that to get serious & finish my internal health journey (regular strength exercise next!) so to do another CBO heavy metal & mould protocols I didn’t need the distraction of alcohol so decided to make 2021 alcohol free (almost 6 months in so covid has made this easy :-) ) as a result I needed the occasional go to drink for a celebration and stumbled across Freestar.co . It seems awesome & tastes incredible (if you like beer) but I wondered what are potential downsides of it and ingredients & therefore what’s a reasonable intake. I mean I think I might make this a permanent social drink preference in the future… ingredients below - thank you!!! ingredients are all natural & highest quality include: Purified Water, Malted Barley (Gluten Free), Perle Hops & blend of other natural ingredients. 10 parts per million of gluten in the finished product & to be officially gluten free you need under 20ppm. 0% alcohol in process and product.
MacKenzie: Hi I am getting surgery and am worried about taking antibiotics. If you have to take them what are the best things to take/ do to reduce the damage it does to your gut.
Simon: Hello, I am wondering if you eat raw fish, specifically raw tuna or salmon. If you do eat raw fish, how often do you eat it, how many ounces, and specifically what type of tuna or salmon do you recommend for the best health benefits and the least amount of mercury/other toxins? Thanks
Jamie: i Dr Cabral, much shorter thank you this time but again thank you for absolutely everything you and your amazing team do. If we wanted to check periodically that there were no tumours benign or not or anything like that growing anywhere in our bodies should we be doing a periodic five year CT scans or what other tests along with the standard functional medicine tests for our general health should we be doing that would likely pick something up? I’m not worried but I have too many friends or colleagues who suddenly found a tumour and it was a bit late.
MacKenzie: Can you cure H Pylori without a total diet change? I have a lot of events going on and cannot do a cleanse but I would like to try to kill the H pylori with the suggestions you made on foods to include and supplements.
