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:
Anonymous: Hi Doc! Words cannot describe how grateful I'm that I found you a few years ago. You have helped me in so many ways, and still are! I have a question about HSP's or Highly Sensitive Person’s. I'm one if them, however, I'm not balanced YET in my mind and body. So my question would be, is there an underlying physical root cause behind the reason people become HSP's? Is it something that will go away after rebalancing the body and mind? I don't talk for others HSP's, but at least in my self, I can se patterns of Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Is there a connection between HSP's and ASD? I would love to hear your viewpoint of this specific topic.
Anonymous: Hi Doc, I'm an IHP level 1 & 2 certified. I did all labs and all protocols accordingly and maintain a healthy routine based on the destress protocol. I was doing very well until I travelled to South America and started experiencing a lot of anxiety. The anxiety is worse after I eat, especially breakfast. I'm not sure what happened. The breakfast didn't change as I took all of the ingredients from home (except oats which I bought local GF oats) and my supplement protocol remained the same. I even stopped all supplements to see if that would change anything but anxiety, especially heart palpitations is still very much present and as I said, get's very bad after meals. I didn't have this before travelling and I'm not experiencing any digestive issues whatsoever. No bloating, gas, pain, nothing. It's just this shortness of breath, heart palpitations that is driving me insane. I've been eating the same breakfast for ages (banana, DNS, GF oats, nuts/seeds) with no issues but maybe I've developed an allergy to one of those suddenly? If it isn't a food allergy what could it be? I also get it after lunch (not as bad) as breakfast though. Dinner is less but still present.
Anonymous: Hi Doc, me again. Forgot to mention that when this anxiety started, I've been having a lot of random body twitches and been very sensitive to external sounds. Funnily enough, it get's better when I'm around people and having a conversation so basically whenever I'm distracted. It get's really bad when I'm by myself (for example, when I'm on my laptop) and focused on something. Would you say that this could be a symptom of the anxiety? Have you ever come across someone having these twitches from anxiety? Or could this be something more serious?
Anthony: Hi Dr Cabral, I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank you for doing what you do, so thank you! Onto my question but first a little background. I’m a new RN and just accepted a job working from 7p - 7a, 3 days per week (the days I work every week will vary). I’m married with two children and suspect I’ll be on a day schedule during my days off. Besides ensuring good sleep hygiene and optimal nutrition what are some actions I can take to ensure proper sleep and switch between days and nights? For instance, when trying to sleep after working nights should I use your sleep supplements before bed even though it’ll be around 8:30am? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration of my question. Cheers! Anthony
Gemma: Hi. Each time I have done a detox at a health retreat, I get excruciatingly painful cramps in my hamstrings and sometimes in my lower back too. Nothing seems to help them - unless it’s paracetamol which I had to resort to once just to get some sleep! I’m wondering what might be causing the cramping? And how I can avoid for my first Dr Cabral detox, which I’m starting soon? And - if they do come back - any suggestions you may have for treating the pain? Many thanks!
Lisa: Hello! Love your podcast and everything you do for the community. My father who is in late 50s has been diagnosed with MDS. He found out through a routine blood test and then subsequent bone marrow test and was shocked to learn he has MDS as he feels well. What are his options moving forward, what would you recommend? The doctors have put him on injections every 3 weeks to boost red blood cells count.
