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.
