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!   

Noah: Hey doc! Love all your videos, super grateful to learn from a great doctor! My question is, for maybe 10-12 years, I have had rough red pimples you can say on my arms,chest,back and legs. I think it’s called follicular hyperkeratosis? What can I do that for that? No doctor even my functional medicine doctor doesn’t know how to treat it(effectively get rid of it). I currently don’t eat wheat,diary,eggs,soy and fish except salmon. I do deal with a lot of food allergies and allergies in general. Thanks!

Gail: Hi, for years I've been waking up at night many times - between 3 on good days and sometimes 5 or 6 on bad days - to go to the bathroom.I used to wake up many times during the night thinking that I needed to pee, but most of the time my bladder was far from being full...I started to take a Medication for overactive bladder a few weeks ago, and since then I still wake up many times during the night, but now my bladder is always full, which means I really need to pee 3 to 5 times per night.I've tried to limit any fluid intake after 5 pm but it did not change anything...I take a sleep supplementation as well as Magnesium; I meditate, do yoga and am otherwise healthy and fit...Do you have any clue what could help me? I haven't had a straight night of sleep for years now and of course, when I wake up at 4 or 5 am, it's getting harder and harder to go back to sleep...Thank you SO MUCH in advance for any help you could provide! Gail.

Paula: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to ask you questions! I was wondering if you consider dairy products from the animal buffalo as harmful as those from the cow? I know that if even someone doesn’t show a sensitivity to cow’s milk on an igG food sensitivity test, you still don’t recommend it for many other reasons. Does this apply to buffalo mozzarella as well for example?

Anonymous: What would cause a decrease in HDL levels? Last year my HDL was 48, I was hoping to increase this and started taking your Omega supplements in February. I eat pretty healthy, but have room for improvement: fish once a week, flax, chia, olive oil and nuts. I had my cholesterol tested recently and my HDL is now 38! It’s gone in the opposite direction. My HDL/LDL ratio is good, I am just curious why my HDL would decrease and suggestions on how to increase it.Thanks!

Judy: I was told I have sluggish bile causing poor breakdown of fats. What are some things I can do to support my gall bladder?

Kirsty: Hi Stephen, I know you have spoken about the ill effects of consuming dairy products, but I was wondering what your view is on raw milk dairy? I don't consume milk myself but I have been reading that it's a good source of enzymes (lipase) and also Butyrate which is necessary for cell rebuilding in the colon? I follow your protocols and love all your nutritional information so thought I'd get your thoughts on this. :) So much thanks!

Thank you for tuning into this weekend’s Cabral HouseCalls and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Mindset & Motivation Monday show to get your week started off right!

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: 

Brandon: What are your favorite men’s soaps and shampoos? Looking for recommendations on regular shampoo and dandruff shampoo.

Anonymous: Hi Dr Cabral- thx for all the work you do! I’m about 10 years in on my health journey. I found you 1.5 years ago and now I’m making some progress. I’m currently working with a level 2 IHP, have done the food sensitivity lab, the spit test lab, a 14 day detox, the CBO plus the finisher, and the mold protocol. I’m still getting yeast infections (I’ve already listened to all your past yeast infection podcasts) and they come at the same time in my cycle and it seems hormone related. The other issue I’m still fighting is bacterial infections on the tip of my nose and sometimes inside my nose. I’ve had maybe 20-30 over the past 4 years. They clear up w neosporin. So far, every doc that I’ve asked can’t figure either of these 2 issues out, for long term success. I’m on all your supplements and the DNS daily. I’m healthy, active and great besides these two annoying reoccurring issues. The nose infections are definitely linked to sinus stuff that I’ve worked on through the years- All linked to Candida and sinus infections etc. thx for the help!

Kazz: Hi Dr Cabral, thank you for all the difference you are making in the natural health field, sharing your knowledge and being accessible to everyone who has a question, I appreciate it so much as so many do! My question today is regarding chronic eczema and supposed extreme allergy to dust mite and the treatment of ACTAIR immunotherapy. My daughter's bf who is 25yo has spent his life suffering with extreme allergic reactions; rhinitis, eczema and the occasional bouts of asthma. He has had plenty of courses of antibiotics over the years, but in recent years not so much, however recently he has had such a bad case of eczema that the scratching extended to staph. His dr prescribed antibiotics and when one course wasn't it enough, 2, 3... now onto his 4 consecutive course of antibiotics. He has had an allergy test, tested positive to dust mites and has been in consultation with specialist to possibly begin ACTAIR immunotherapy for dust mite allergy which is a 3 year desensitising process, and does come with side affects. I'm wondering if you know much about this therapy. I feel he could get great results using EquiLife products, a hair mineral analysis etc. He is concerned that there is no proof that would work. Would love to hear your comments :)) thank you so much.

Kelly: i Dr Cabral, my 8 year old son completed the children’s cbo this summer. He did have an anaphylactic reaction to a scallop in the middle of it where we had to stop for a few days, but for the most part we followed it well. I had been sharing my cbo finisher with him, although not religiously. He seemed to have been doing better. Belly aches, head aches seemed better, acid reflux is gone, arm pit eczema gone. But, the last 5 days he has been getting random hives all over his body, and itching throughout the day, all over, but especially at night when he’s trying to fall asleep. The only way he’s been able to fall asleep is with a little bit of Benedryl and wet wraps. He also has blotchy red spots around his mouth area. He had terrible eczema when he was 3mo-3 years, but it has mostly been gone since then. Now, it seems like it’s coming back. We did the food sensitivity test as well as scratch testing, and try to stay away from those. He hasn’t been eating anything “new” that I’m aware of, so I don’t understand what’s happening. He is very sensitive to gluten, dairy, sugar, and many foods and did have a lot of dairy at a friends house just before this started. Any ideas on what’s happening and how to help him heal would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Michael: Hi Dr Cabral, what is the difference between collagen protein and bone broth protein?

I had the pleasure of connecting with Tyler Jean on how his ND studies are finishing up in Naturopathic Medical School…
 
We had a fun and eye-opening conversation about what it’s like for today’s Naturopathic students (especially during the pandemic) and what awaits them when they graduate…
 
Plus, Tyler shares his unique situation of already having built quite the following years ago on social media (and how he did it)…
 
Tune into today’s #CabralConcept 1763 to find out how this future Naturopathic Doctor sees the emerging world of healthcare and healing with Tyler Jean - Enjoy the show and let @Functional.Foods and me know what you thought!

Coffee (and tea) may just be the most popular nutritional supplement on the planet…
 
Now I know most people wouldn’t look at their morning coffee or tea as a supplement, but that’s exactly what it is…
 
It’s a nutritional extract of the whole food that you are consuming and in this case, it may be one of the healthiest things you can add to your daily routine (within reason)…
 
That’s why on today’s #CabralConcept 1761 I’d like to share the research on how coffee can boost fasting & autophagy benefits - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!
