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!
