Check out today's questions:
Vabona: Hi! I recently found out that miralax has ingredients in it that are found in antifreeze. Said ingredients are said to cause many problems including neuropsychiatric and kidney problems. I have miralax to my son for a while from my drs recommendations. I’m terrified of all the damage I have done. What can I do to help my 5 year old detox that is safe. Thank you
Dana: I had a moderate case of covid a month ago and feel depressed ever since. I am 48 and perimenopausal and am wondering if covid causes any vitamin/mineral deficiencies or hormonal changes that may contribute to depression? Prior to getting covid I was taking vit d, c, b complex, magnesium and occasional zinc as well as methylfolate for mthfr def. (one copy). I am prone to seasonal affective disorder but always feel great in summer so this is unusual for me. Thank you! Love your podcast!
Anonymous: Hi Dr. Cabral. Thanks for taking the time to answer so many questions. I have a question about non-diabetic reactive hypoglycemia. I searched old episodes & found a brief explanation on episode 218 but I think my question is more specific. I have not been officially diagnosed. No matter the amount of carbs I eat or don't eat, my blood sugar drops an hour after I eat a meal to sub 70. At times sub 60. But then 2-3 hours later it spikes. During the day the spike is generally 100-120 but after dinner its 120-150. Fasting BS is below 70-90. I dip into sub 60 during the nights a lot. My sugars are relatively low most of the day until my dinner meal & that is when I get 120-150. It still goes back under 100 before bed. I am wearing a CGM to try to see if I can identify the issue & so far no luck. Like I mentioned the same meal can cause little to no drop/spike & then the next time I have it it does. I have heard that Reactive Hypoglycemia is a precursor to diabetes so I would really like to fix the underlying root cause before that becomes an issue. I eat whole foods 95% of the time, I intermittent fast 12-14hours. I work out 2 cardio 3 strength per week. I try to walk at least 30 minutes each day. Drink lots of water. Thanks for your help!
Megan: Hi Dr. Cabral, I absolutely love your podcast!! I’ve learned so much and implemented many of your suggestions while healing my body. My question is about my 18 month old son. I now know that when I was pregnant I had Candida, SIBO, and parasites. I’m worried I have passed these conditions on to my baby. I nursed him for 16 months and during that time I unknowingly detoxed some of the Candida. I believe the toxins got into my breastmilk, as my baby had really bad eczema during this time and has had a hard time eating solids as well. I feel awful. I’m concerned about gut issues developing as he gets older. How can I help my baby get as healthy as possible moving forward? Thank you so so much for your passion & sharing your wisdom!
Maria: Hi Dr! I have been curious about this for some time. Both my parents have received the AZ vacc, and their reactions were entirely different. My father felt absolutely normal the following days whereas my mother had severe fever, chills, headache for about 24hr. Would this be due to bio individuality or have something to do with the strength/over reactivity of their immune system, if so, is there a favourable response?
Thanid: I had the jab and l regret it. How do l detox it from my body.
