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:
Leanne: Hi Dr Cabral, I have a question regarding FASD, Foetal alcohol spectrum disorder. What advice can you give for a 9yr old boy affected by FASD? Symptoms are vast but include sleep issues, mood and behavioral problems, learning difficulties, ADD type behaviors although we've had an assessment for autism and add and there was no diagnosis given. Any input you have will be gratefully received! Thanks.
Josh: Hey I have been having an issue with an ingrown toenail. I've had a round of antibiotics and a podiatrist trimmed the nail and didn't do the full procedure. Going back for a checkup on Sept 21. I think the nail is getting infected again, I've been soaking it in epson salt and treating it with neosporin. I've just recently learned of your podcast and was wondering what could I treat my toe with instead of neosporin, didn't realize that it was an antibiotic. Thanks!
Tammi: Dr Cabral, Thank you for all the information you provide on your show. I have been listening to your show for quite some time and often though man this guy discusses mold lot. I realize that mold can be a huge issue but coming from the West Coast with our dry heat there’s never really an issue. I also have lived in Japan but we had dehumidifiers in each room so still mold and mildew were never an issue. Fast forward to a few weeks ago (the beginning of August) my husband, our 13 month old and I moved to Boston. Now I’m blown away and get that mold is a crazy real thing here, that I just don’t know how to manage. For example, I bought a watermelon less than a week later when my husband went to cut it there was mold underneath the watermelon. Our bathroom is constantly mildewy despite the dehumidifier being right outside the door. Our water bottles need to be scrubbed weekly even if they only contain water… I have asked several people we have met about the humidity, how they manage it in there homes and I really just don’t get any response other than yea it’s an issue. Could you please explain to someone who just does not know how to manage the humidity here, what do I need to be doing to manage it and to keep our family safe? Thank you Feeling ridiculous and lost
Chad: Hello Dr. Cabral, love everything you do. For the past 6 months I have been miserable in my own home with near crippling allergies. When I wake up in the morning my eyes are swollen and itchy, I sneeze about 20 times and my head feels like it’s underwater. The worst part is that my sinuses are swollen shut so breathing my nose is next to impossible. I’m almost positive the allergen is in my house ie. mold, dust mites, or some other indoor allergen. What would your advice be for the first step to solving this so that I can get my life back to normal. Thank you very much, Chad
Samantha: Hi Dr Cabral, After running my big 5 labs it was recommended I stick to a low oxalate diet. I have read this will help with kidney stones although I haven't had any as of yet, I'm 43, but my question is if it has any connection to help with tonsil stones? I am currently starting the CBO protocol with my mom and hoping it will cure the chronic tonsil stones but if it hasn't I'm hoping to find another answer. I have listened to all previous podcasts on tonsil stones and have followed all advice regarding gargles etc BUT maybe the CBO will get me there as I know it's a biggie. I just wonder if eating low oxalate could help as well?? Thank you so much Dr Cabral. You truly are amazing.
June: Hello, I have been a long timer follower, dedicated to the detox protocol and beyond. With all the podcasts available and the search engine supplied, i am unable to find a podcast that would support my dilemma. My son who has a two year old is suffering from excema and has been prescribed multiple doses of steroids “GULP” (against my counsel) is now reaching out to me for help. What podcast would be best to send to him regarding this issue. As much as I try, I cannot find out the 100’s of podcasts one that speaks to this directly. Thank you, thank you, thank you
