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: 

Ryan: I know you're not a big fan of artificial sweeteners, but from what I've been able to find in the research, there seems to be many meta-analyses and RCTs, in humans, showing that there is no negative effect on bodyweight, glycemic variability or the microbiome, or that there is actually beneficial effects on bodyweight. Studies that show otherwise either seem to be in animals, or providing extremely large doses that would not be realistic for everyday life, or both. Is this a case of the science not being caught up to clinical practice and current times? Or is there definitive research showing the negative effects of artificial sweeteners in humans, in realistic doses? Would love if to hear your valued opinion on this. Thanks for all that you do!

Marianne: Hi Dr. Cabral, I love your show. My husband was diagnosed with PVC or Pulmonary Ventricular Contraction. He is on the medication Metoprolol to regulate his heartbeat. He's trying to reduce his stress at work and reduce his alcohol consumption. He drinks about 2 cups of coffee per day. Is there anything else he can do or take to help regulate the heartbeat without medication?

Anonymous: Huge fan of the podcast, I listen everyday! One topic I've never heard discussed is the use of anti-viral medications. I've heard a lot about antibiotics and the bad effects they can have on our guts, but I've never heard about anti-virals. The reason I ask, my 3 yr old has been taking low dose acyclovir daily for the past year to prevent frequently recurring cold sores. We think they picked this up from an extended family member or daycare, since nobody else in our family has ever had a cold sore. A year ago they were getting them about every other week. When one would show up, we'd immediately start acyclovir to knock it out quickly, but when we'd stop, another one would pop up a week or so later. We've also tried low arginine high lysine diet, which didn't seem to make much of a difference. I asked our pediatrician about taking a lysine supplement, but they didn't feel comfortable with that b/c of age. The low dose daily has worked really well for us, but now I'm concerned it may be causing other problems. Since early July, I've noticed hives about every other day on my child. They're mostly on the legs and torso, not huge, and they don't seem too bothersome, but I'm wondering if long term use of acyclovir could've caused this, thoughts? And any thoughts on daily lysine use?

Tony: Hi Dr C, I can’t find anything on your podcasts about amino acid BPC-157. Have asked your support team they said to ask here. Carpenter since a young boy, now in my 60s, used a lot of pressure on my knees for my job property developing, floor tiling etc, at one point (in my 50s) it was so bad I couldn’t get up off the floor; lucky enough found a fantastic acupuncturist which made it a lot better. Unfortunately can’t find him anymore. Job slowed down but knee pain got a lot worse, struggled to walk on my right knee, even considered knee replacement, prefer to avoid GPs, hospitals etc and go down an alternative route. My daughter had me on a decent turmeric/curcumin, MSM, Proteolytic Enzymes and arnica oil, until she found BPC-157. After a few days of this I could walk. The only thing that bothers her is that it is synthetic. So we gave it a couple of weeks then stopped. Knee has been overall good since apart from an odd day here and there but to go from barely walking to what feels normal is more than expected. My mood has also improved maybe because I can walk! Previously felt as though the bones or ligaments in my knee were rubbing together and there was no fluid. Normal weight, 5’9 don’t do any strenuous exercise, other than my job and walking. Thank you

Elizabeth: Hi Dr Cabral, My dad has had a dark spot (almost black and the size of a small mole) on the very right corner edge of his lower lip for the past year or so which has not changed. He has no desire to go to GP (had a few wrongful family experiences of being told something awful by a GP and it turning out to be wrong, so don’t want to be looped into any fear mongering or pharmaceuticals). He is fine otherwise, in 60s, generally in good health apart from some stressful phases, eats a balanced diet, does love wine but never smoked/taken meds. I’m thinking maybe Angiokeratoma / vitamin deficiency or possibly hormone related. I’ve looked at the natural topical remedies that may help but wondered what may be best and whether topical iodine could be a solution? P.s. are you familiar with Indiumease? Thank you for all you do and this community

One of the best ways to judge your overall health is to understand your metabolic flexibility…
 
This is essentially your body’s ability to maintain equilibrium when it misses a meal, a night’s sleep, a hard workout, or any stressor that works against your body’s homeostasis…
 
The less you feel of a reaction to a stressor, often times the more balanced your endocrine and nervous system…
 
So on today’s #CabralConcept 2119 I’d like to share with you how to create maximum metabolic flexibility through intermittent fasting - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any questions!

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!   

Jody: Hi Dr. Cabral. I was hoping you could give me some information on sebaceous cysts...what are they, where do they come from and what happens when they get infected? I have searched your podcasts and don't believe I have heard you mention them before. I had one on my shoulder apparently for a while, where it just seemed to be a small bump. It became infected and painful and my doctor put me on antibiotics. After a few weeks to a month it was much better and has actually disappeared. I have several now on my labia where they too became very irritated and painful. My OBGYN prescribed me a cream that did not make it any better so eventually put me on antibiotics again. That helped a little but not like it did with the outcome of the one on my shoulder. I have a cluster of them on both sides of my labia and they still sometimes become irritated. My OBGYN did say I could have them cut out but that seems very painful due to the fact where they are located. I would love to hear any thoughts or advise you have regarding this. Thanks so much for your time and for all you do. I really enjoy listening to your podcasts every day.

Angie: Hi Dr. Cabral. I recently overcame HPylori and am working on my digestion. I am doing your parasite protocol. started taking your DNS powder and will do the CBO protocol soon. When I took the DNS powder it resulted in pain under my right rib cage, so I lowered my dosage to half a scoop, which helped. My questions is, how do I heal a dysfunctional gallbladder so I don’t have to get it removed? I also have low stomach acid and gastritis, what are your recommendations to heal those?

Kirsten: I am on day 1 of the 7 day detox. Regarding days 3-7 vegan/paleo meals what are the thoughts regarding including gluten free grains like quinoa, rice and oats. Also what about raw nuts - walnuts, almonds, cashews? Lastly what about seeds? I have been going through everything and thought it said no grains and the program itself is nut free, I am presuming because the allergen potential, but i can't find specific discussion on these. Thank you

Nic: Hi Dr. Cabral, I’ve developed a pterigium on my eye and I wonder if there is anything I can do to make it go away or stop growing? I’m terrified of the thought of surgery down the road. Also, why would I have developed it in the first place? Thank you! Nic

Stacey: Hi, I have binge listened to your episodes this week. Carb cycling is a lot of interest to me. I tend to work out daily, so tend to keeps my carbs at the higher end. Is that impacting my weight loss? I’d love to know can you be doing too much. I walk 10,000 steps daily and do a 40-50 min workout each day. Thanks

Ryan: Hello, I have a question regarding a friend with Klinefelter syndrome and osteopenia. If you were to take lab tests out of the equation, these 2 conditions I'm sure immediately bring to mind some interventions and practices you would like to prioritise to improve health and balance in the body. I was wondering if you had some ground level go-to advice based on the presence of these 2 conditions? Much appreciated.

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: 

Andrea: I had a question for you based on the health plan you provided me back on 4/7. after completing my metals test. Before I could follow-out this plan of detoxes/metals detox, I had lots of abnormal symptoms begin so I had to see my functional medicine doctor. She performed multiple additional tests and long story short, I was recently diagnosed with SIBO, colon bacteria overgrowth, +e-coli, low sIgA, chronic UTIs, and inflammation/elevated CRP. So in addition to the supplements I normally take, I am now also taking the supplements/herbs (attached) for 3 months. Then the plan would be to complete a general detox and metals detox. The problem is we are trying to get pregnant as soon as we are able to (after this 3 month SIBO treatment plan). So in order to also complete a detox and metals detox, I was curious if I'd be able to complete Dr Calbral's general and metals detox while I am taking the attached supplements? Or must I wait til I'm done with these before starting the detoxes? I noticed the metals detox is 6 weeks and wasn't sure if there is a shorter version of this too? Thanks!

Katie: Hi Dr. Cabral! What can you share about vasomotor rhinitis? My allergy doctor believes I have it as my normal allergy symptoms have gotten so much better after many protocols, but I still suffer from one odd symptom - the feeling that my nostrils are inflamed and small, making it hard to get air in through my nose. I frequently end up taking sharp sniffs to get enough air through my nose. There are no other symptoms of this aside from occasional throat (and then chest) pain from being so tense trying to get air in. What can I do to overcome this naturally? Thanks for all you do!

Jessi: Hi. Thank you for all that you do, Im new to the podcast, I had one issue (im not 100% sure you answered already i tried to look it up on past podcast, but wasn't able to find anything. My question is of 2 1.) I think every night or a lot of nights I wake up with a tight jaw, I once woke up at 3am and i noticed I had my jaw Clenched, not sure why or if its even a health issue, or mental. 2.) Ever since i can remember I've always only had one nostril working. some times it switches, mostly is my right nostril that gets stuffed or can't breath through it. If you can shed some light on this id appreciate it.

Maggie: Hi Dr. Cabral. I am a huge fan of your podcasts and try to follow your advice as much as I can. I have struggled with chronic pelvic pain and inflammation in my lower abdomen for about 9 years. I have had ultrasounds, a CT scan, a cystoscopy, physical therapy, botox injections, antidepressants, was put back on birth control in case it was endometriosis, you name it, I have done it. The pain/inflammation started while I was on a course of metronidazole. Ever since then, I have had recurring yeast infections, white coating on the tongue, depression/anxiety worsened, brain fog and just overall feeling more fatigued and feeling like my immune system isn't as strong as it was pre-pain. After listening to your podcasts I thought it made sense that candida would be the culprit so I am currently on week 5 of the CBO protocol. I have noticed a change in my brain fog, yeast infections, and overall mood, but have had no changes to the constant dull ache and inflammation in my lower abdomen. Do you think that this could possibly be caused by something else? The pain is worse if I worked out recently or tends to be worse at night. I stopped smoking weed as that would make the pain worse, maybe from the change in blood pressure, not sure? Any advice is much appreciated. Thank you so much!

James: Hi Doctor Cabral I been diocese diverticulitis and had acute attacked many times over the past 15 years. I have been told to get the operation. I take antibiotics when this happens and know that is also not good for me. However it now is two years since my last attack. I am 65 years old and concerned I may need the operation in later years. How can I prevent it from happening and can I cure it with diet ? I take your supplements especially probiotics. What would you recommend? Trying to avoid an operation and trying to cure it.

Alex: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am so thankful for all of the content and energy that you have pushed out for everyone. My question is on shilajit. When you take shilajit, does it break a fast. Thanks again. Alex

It may seem crazy to most to actively seek out being the “dumbest” person in the room, but that is one of the great secrets of the successful…
 
Many of the most successful people I have ever met have always surrounded themselves with people one level above them, or at least in groups that challenged their status quo… 
 
Plus, leveling up is not just about the people you choose to spend the most time with, but rather taking on calculated risks that have substantial upside…
 
On today’s CabralConcept 2110 I’d like to dig deep on this topic as to why you should seek out feeling “foolish” - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought in the comments!

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!   

Lindsey: hello Dr Cabral. Thank you for all you do. For the last year I have gotten many chilazens on both eyes. At this current moment I have 3 on one eye one on the other. I do the hot compresses every day with no effect. After seeing many doctors one finally diagnosed me with ocular rosacea. Unfortunately the only suggestion was three weeks or more of antibiotics. My question is what is the underlying cause of ocular rosacea, or chilazens in general. The doctor said the oil is stuck in the gland, but I want to know why it keeps happening. Also any recommendations? Thank you!

Shari: Hi doctor Cabral, I hope you’re having a great day! I was wondering if you could help me with following: I’ve been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, SIBO and dysbiosis. I want to start treating them naturally, however I’m wondering which came first - the thyroid problems or gut problems. I feel that one probably caused the other. What are your thoughts about it? And which one should be treated first? Thank you SO much for your podcast and everything that you do! And just FYI - I’ve just purchased the CBO protocol and I have a feeling that it will help me on my way to perfect health :) Shari

Joanna: Hi Dr Cabral Hoping you can help. I have completed the full CBO and while on the CBO I was taking Vitamin C crystals for histamine ( I took this type of vitamin C as better for oxolates) towards the end of the CBO I started getting alot of reflux burping etc. I am now on the heal and seal. I have found Vitamin C and anything with citrus like lemons etc causes tingling in my face and hands and now down to feet. I am assuming this is due to low b12 and low iron from low stomach acid. Is it possible Vitaminc C straight ascorbic acid can cause low stomach acid or even push down b12? As I retested my HTMA towards the end of the CBO and my cobolt was down to 0. Before CBO was normal. On heal and seal now and I still have bloating plus tingling and reflux, I have started taking hcl and removed any foods causing me reflux. My main question is, I am concerned I now have a return of SIBO due to low stomach acid, I am a bit concerned of doing the GSE drops again as it's citrus and have done GSE already like 3 times now over a few years, and concerned my stomach lining has eroded Would he clean gut probiotic be enough to help with any remaining SIBO if there is any? Or you can only remove SIBO with GSE, GI balance and clean gut all together? Many thanks for your help much appreciated :)

Maria: Hi Dr. Cabral! I’ve been reading a lot about the benefits of plant protein and have been trying to convert myself over to eating less animal protein. My ultimate goal would be maybe 5 animal protein meals a week, instead of the 14 I currently eat. My problem is that I’m having a hard time adjusting to the fiber intake of beans, chickpeas, etc. After eating a meal with 1 cup of black beans or chickpeas, I have horrible gas and bloating. I’ve done the food sensitivity test and no legumes showed up as sensitivities, so I’m guessing this reaction is all due to fiber. How do you suggest I make this conversion? How long should it take for my body to get used to this amount of fiber? Side note, I have awful histamine issues that I’m currently addressing, so I stay away from tofu because of the high histamine level. Currently on week 2 of CBO protocol.

Bec: Can you please give me insight into my eating pattern. Largely I am an extremely healthy eater. Green juices (largely veg), balanced meals (protein, fats, Veg) take Foundational supplements, exercise, 3L water & mid week fasting days & don’t take medications. Have done Cabral 21 day detox, Cabral intestinal cleanse (12 months ago) & Liver Cleanse. But I need to understand the psychology of my; 1. Binge eating on sugar. The desire for sugar generally occurs after a healthy meal-but if I sample sugar it turns into a binge ( uncontrollable). I am unable to have a small portion. I don’t understand the physiology/chemistry of my body that I am so overwhelmed with sugar. 2. When Im with a social group and a platter is presented ( cheese, Quince, Crackers). I eat uncontrollably even if I am satiated prior OR a meal is provided after. I try to analyse whether it is nervous energy/do something with hands-but feel Im a confident person and shouldn’t need to obsessively/anxiously snack. 3. Drink Fast-again in social scenarios I drink quickly. I replace some alcoholic beverages with sparkling water to offset the speed and therefore the amount I drink. I also used to be a social smoker-so wonder whether this eating/bingeing behaviour is some mild neurosis. Pls help me understand & overcome.

Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral, I am a devoted listener and I'm going through IHP level 1 right now and loving it. I researched my question, but couldn't find an answer. Hoping you can help. My husband was recently diagnosed with gynecomastia. He is 6' 1" and 165lbs. Eats a healthy, well balanced diet of mostly organic food and is on a good daily regiment of supplements. He has had the minerals and metals test run about 6 months ago and the hormone test run about a year ago. Both pointed towards his body being under a lot of stress...electrolytes depleted, cortisol high at lunch and too low in the evening, and his DHEA and Testosterone were low (testosterone was 68), estradiol was normal. We implemented the protocols given at the time by his practitioner, including taking DHEA for 12 weeks. The things he is working on are his sedentary lifestyle (he works from home as a computer tech and his low energy makes it hard for him to get up and get moving as much as he would like) and he typically has a drink or 2 most evenings. He's decided to cut back on his coffee and alcohol intake. We are wondering what else we can do to help this problem? Is it an estrogen dominance problem? And if so, could he try Estrogen Balance or a DIM supplement? Thanks so much for your help!

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: 

Stefanie: Hi doc! Thank you for all of your incredible knowledge! I don’t drink often, probably 2 glasses of wine every two weeks or so. I was thinking of taking some EquiLife FM detox on those nights. Do you think this would be of any benefit at all? If so, is it best to take them before or after drinking? Any other supplement recommendations?

Bee: Hi Dr Cabral, I am interested to know your thoughts on clothing and footwear that are made from recycled materials such as plastic bags, plastic bottles, nylon and the like in terms of toxicity/off-gassing etc. There seems to be an increase in 'sustainable' and 'eco' clothing I am seeing around ranging from sportswear and leggings to outer wear and shoes. Are they safe and low-tox to wear in your opinion or would they contribute to ones total toxic load? Love your work!

Anonymous: Hi, i am a 17 year old female and have been struggling with insomnia from childhood, i tried different methods for getting rid of it - breath work, reading … ect It works for some time and then i get used to is and back to square one. I heard in one of your podcasts that magnesium supplement and melatonin can work. What are the different and how much and which one should i take?

Anonymous: Hi,Dr Cabral. I have a question regarding certain dark areas on my body, my neck, knees and hips (when sitting) are much darker than the rest of my body, what are the reason for this and what are your suggestions on how can to cure this? Thanks in advance

Stephanie: Would you say that a sauna puts you in a sympathetic nervous system state? I’m a 23 year old vata with tons of anxiety and cortisol levels through the roof. I have stopped working out for now because it was very high intensity which has only worsen the situation. I will return to working out at some point but while I rebuild my body, I’m sticking to 10k steps daily. I’m trying to find another way to sweat but no sure if a sauna is good for me right now. What are your thoughts?

Andrea: Hi! Thank you so much for answering my question! What is the minimum fat percentage you’d recommend for a woman? It seems like a very low fat percentage can sometimes cause hormonal dysfunction. Would you say 15% maybe?

I honestly love the health, wellness, and fitness industry and couldn't imagine doing anything else…
 
But, the level of misinformation out there in the world is at its highest level due to the ease of posting on social media…
 
It's actually doing this amazing industry a disservice because people see so many contradicting diets, exercise, supplements, or other advice…
 
That's why on today's #CabralConcept 2106 I'd like to share with you the top 7 myths health experts perpetuate - Enjoy the show and let me know what others you would add!

On the surface, intermittent fasting seems like an easy enough protocol to implement, but it's actually much more nuanced than it seems.
 
Although fasting really is the closest thing that we have to the fountain of youth right now if you do it incorrectly you can actually do some serious harm to your metabolism, nervous system, and hormones…
 
That's why on today's Cabral Concept 2105 I'd like to share with you the three things never to do while fasting - Enjoy the show and let me know if you have any other tips for people below in the comments!

By now I hope you have heard about all of the health, metabolism, and longevity benefits of omega-3s…
 
Not only do they help combat high levels of inflammatory omega-6s that show up in processed foods, vegetable oils, non-wild fish, and non-pastured meats, but they act on almost every health system in your body (including your hormones & mood)…
 
The problem is that most people think they are not eating that many high omega-6 foods and that getting in enough omega-3s while allowing the dis-ease state of the body to manifest - which is why inflammation is referred to as the “silent killer…”
 
So to be on the lookout for a lack of Omega-3s in your diet I wanted to share with you the major signs of omega-3 deficiency on today’s #CabralConcept 2104 - Enjoy the show and let me know what you thought!

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!   

Samantha: Hi Dr Cabral, I had the big 5 ran and found out I have an extreme sensitivity to vanilla. I also found out I need to stick to a low oxalate diet. :( Would you suggest I take the daily activated multi-vitamin instead of drinking the dns shake since I can't have vanilla or cocoa because it's high oxalate? If so, what would you suggest for a substitute on protein powder? Thank you once again for bringing awareness to so many health concerns. Because of you I was able to bring my TSH number down on my own using Adrenal Soothe and Thyroid Support! :)

Jen: I wanted to put in a request for you to do an entire show on the root causes of hypoglycemia. There is a lot of talk surrounding high blood sugar, but my problem is low blood sugar and it really disrupts my life. I know this isn't a simple answer, so I would love to hear a full episode on the topic if you would be willing :)

Jason: Hello Dr Cabral, first of all I’d like to thank you for all the content! I really appreciate it :) I’ve been suffering with chronic non bacterial prostatitis / CPPS for the last couple of years. Typical symptoms include: Frequent / urgent urination, Poor urine flow and hesitancy, At times painful urination with a milky/cloudy discharge, Lower abdomen pain, Testicular pain and Perineum pain. The urinary symptoms are present 24/7, however the pains will come and go, my last flare up was really really painful. I have been prescribed many different antibiotics over the years, my doctors use to say I had epididymitis, however it kept coming back year after year. I was finally referred to urology and they said it was non bacterial prostatitis, I couldn’t take flomax due to side effects. I’ve had a CT scan which came back normal and an ultrasound scan of the testicles which came back normal. STD tests all clear. I have regular blood tests and my neautrophil count is slightly low, my doctors have assured me it is nothing to worry about. I have a peanut and nut allergy so I avoid these foods at all costs. I workout 3/4 times per week and use the traditional sauna 4+ times per week. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Matt: a friend recently recommended Stur Water Enhancers, it contains Stevia but also contains natural fruit flavor, concentrated white grape juice, citric acid...however it is zero calories but contains 1g carb. will this break my fast for weight loss?

Angela: Aloha Dr. Cabral, I don't need to waste precious air-time proclaiming you are a worshipped in my house as a demi-god kahuna. So instead I will pose a question about bone loss. I use a "smart" scale which now says I lost 0.4 lbs. of bone mass over the last 2 months. I am now in the "inadequate" zone of bone mass and it has me concerned. The only thing different I've been doing in the last 2 months is perhaps eating less meat and not as much resistance training. What do you think about the accuracy of these "smart" scales', especially reading one's bone mass, fat and muscle composition? Are there any dietary changes or supplements I should take to increase bone mass? Of note, I'm a 51 y.o. perimenopausal woman trying to prevent old folk problems! I eat a plant-based diet with fish 1x/wk. I am waiting for my Big 5 Lab results to come back as well. Will those results shed light on my bone health? As always, mahalo for all your knowledge. Angela

Chris: Hi Doctor Cabral! First I'd like to thank you for being a huge part of who I am today. Your teachings have improved my life in so many ways. My question is about parasites. I had a parasite and took the parasite protocol (Para Support Protocol) by EquiLife and all my parasite symptoms went away. Since one of (if not the only) bad things about eating organic produce is the higher chance of of ingesting parasites. I've seen several videos of people putting organic produce under a microscope and seeing worms inside things like berries. I know there are ways to wash the outside of produce but what do we do about the parasites inside? I'm worried I'll just keep getting them no matter how many parasite protocols I do.

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: 

Caroline: I have worked with a functional practitioner for a year and a half to heal my H pylori infection. To treat Hpylori, I used biocidin, bio-HPF and triple probiotics for two months. Now I take bio-HPF and probiotics daily and have no symptoms, however, if I stop bio-HPF, the symptoms come back within two days. I feel amazing on the herbals, but feel extremely defeated that I still have the infection. I am now interested in antibiotics but I am scared of the long term side effects. Do you ever feel like cases are in need of antibiotics or is there is deeper reason I am not fully treating H pylori? I take HCL with my meals to help digestion and have no stomach pain but is it better to avoid these while treating H pylori?

Lisa: Dr. Cabral- Thanks for sharing so much great information!! My question is about my granddaughter, 3 years old, who has been diagnosed with enamel hypoplasia (soft enamel). By the time you read this she will have undergone surgery to put crowns on several of her teeth due to widespread decay. Her pediatric dentist says it is due to my daughter having had some some of fever during the pregnancy at the same time the baby's teeth were forming and that there is nothing that can be done for it. The dentist said my granddaughter will always have soft enamel and will probably end up with lots of crowns or implants, possibly false teeth. My daughter is beside herself because she feels it is her fault. She provides good dental care, lots of tooth brushing, limited sugar and processed foods, and no fruit juice. I'm in school for nutritional therapy and even though I've learned a great deal, I'm not sure how to help my granddaughter. She is a picky eater, which might be due to her teeth being uncomfortable - we don't know. Please help me understand what might be done from this point on to help her have the best outcome possible. Thank you! Lisa N

Darren: Good day Dr. Cabral. We appreciate all you do. May seem like a trivial question and I'm not putting you on spot to promote any brand but when you highlight the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar you typically talk about Bragg's. Would like to know if other brands like Vermont Village, Heinz, Dynamic are also good to use given they're USDA organic, GMP, non GMO and contain the "Mother" too. Thank you

Luann: Hello Dr. Cabral! I hope all is well with you today! Do you have any insight into why my face gets very red when I exercise compared to the rest of my body? This has happened even when I was a little kid, and even when I was young and in very good shape running track and cross country. It also happens to my son who is and has always been very athletic. Thank you! Lu

Brooke: Hello. My son is almost three. About 6 months ago he had giardia. We gave him what was prescribed and he cleared up. Since then, however, whenever he gets over tired or off schedule for a day, the next day he has diarrhea. We had him retested and he tested negative for giardia but positive for leukocytes in his stool. Do you have any thoughts on what it may be or what the best protocol to help his little guys would be? Thanks so much for your time!

Krystle: Hi Dr. Cabral, My question is a bit threefold, so thank you in advance for your review and guidance! I delivered identical twin boys at 33.5 weeks, resulting in a 23 day NICU stay. One of my twins was required to be on a CPAP for lung support. This twin is constantly contracting rsv - the first time needing hospitalization for oxygen support. I’ve been told asthma may be inevitable, so I would like to strengthen his lungs, immunity and try to prevent further complications down the line. My other son is frequently battling eczema - both who are now 2, have been diagnosed with a minimal stove too egg allergy and have been advised they will grow out of it. I have noticed that by removing dairy and gluten, the eczema clears up. Wondering if there are any connections between both twins symptoms or if they are requiring separate treatments. I appreciate your suggestions!
